    A friend asked me to do some research on James Robison, and I can't really find much. So what can you tell me? Good guy? Bad guy? And why? Web sites for this information?

    All of the stuff in the article may be true now - and if it is, that's tragic.

    I can testify now, that I was saved when I responded during a James Robison Crusade in Pensacola, Florida in 1973.

    Donna, here's his web site:

    I'd rather read things from the horse's mouth.

    I was at meetings years ago with James Robison and they were great.

    I don't believe everything I read on some of these web sites that "bash" ministers of the Gospel. Wonder how many souls that webmaster has won to the Lord Jesus Christ?

    Amen! lady Eagle.
    The best way to check out a ministry is to go to their website.
    There are lot's of nuts out there that have websites that blast different ministries.
    I am leary of people that consider everyone to be a cult except themselves.

    I partially agree with LadyEagle
    But I am also thankful for the research that quotes the books and sermons of "Christian Celebrities" so we know some of the things they say that don't get as much publicity as they ought to get.

    Seems like when they get the private jets and the multi-million dollar homes and the adulation of tens of thousands of Christians, it frequently changes the Christian Celebrity.

    Its not "bashing" to quote the far-out, unscriptural comments of the Christian rich and famous or to shine the light of truth on their extravagant lifestyles.

    Christian Celebrities lead multitudes astray with their doctrinal corruption and their prosperity gospel.

    I was at his web site last night and it didn't say anything about being charismatic. Plus those he associates with and has as guests on his show throws up a red flag. Even when you visit a person web site you can not gt all the information about them, as to what they actually teach, it takes a lot of listening to them and studying them. I am thankful there are people who have done this research so I can get quick answers.

    One thing that stands out about James Robison is that his ministry is involved in digging wells in villages that do not have running water.
    HE preaches the Gospel with his words and with his actions.
    He is a man of strong conviction and preaches righteousness, and a man that loves people.
    He works hard to preach the message of unity in the Body of Christ.

    All that sounds good. But what else does he teach? If in fact this article is true of what he teaches and believes does all that sound Christian to you? Not me. He aligns himself with false teachers, why? A good sound Christian would not. Unity in the body should net be at the expense of scripture. Too many times truth us expendable in the search of unity.

    So, what if it isn't true?

    The way I look at it is this - the people who are being defamed on the above web site must be doing something right. Surely they all can't be false prophets!

    People will believe what they want to believe I guess, whether the accusations are true or not. And guess who the greatest "accuser of the brethren" is? :(

    I was a litt surprised to see that this guy feels that he can take shots at Chuck Swindoll, who along with Adrian Rodgers is one of the best Bible Teachers that I have ever heard on radio. Chuck has never pressured anyone to give money, he is a positive speaker that is not afraid to preach the gospel and he certainley does not go in for that WOF or the Prosperity Gospel.

    I think a good point was raised earlier. This site likes to sledge all these people. O.k then how many people is it that they have gotten saved, or is it that they rely on getting disgruntled people from other churches.

    I have had many people tell me that they are "Watchman" for the church. Yet it has been my experience that I have been taken in by some of these before as they are people that literally pray on others, and that these people often have a "root of bitterness" which eventually destroys them.

    What I have found is a very sound discernment ministry which is the Ankerberg Show, John Ankerberg and John Weldon may not be perfect, yet their discernment site and T.V show is one of the best ever and they certainley do not take shots at people like Adrian Rodgers or Chuck Swindoll.

    Remember the story of the pot that called the kettle black?

    I did a little Google search on the accuracy of Phillip Miesal's so called Discernment Ministry. Here is a link to an article which raises many questions straight away. Simply put I do not think he is a reliable source in this area.

    I must wholeheartedly agree with you, LadyEagle (please, we need to write this monentous occaision down! [​IMG] ). The site is an "exposing" site. It goes to great lengths to dig up dirt on pretty much everyone who is remotely popular. The site pretty much lists everyone except for Peter and Paul. Clearly, the site exists to "sell papers" so to speak.

    Ben, thank you for doing some research. Some of us here have heard of Darwin Fish, too.

    On another page linked from your link, here's what is said about Mr. Rick's site:

    What a shame so many men of God have been slimed by this man and his web site. :(
