    Well, you knew it had to happen sooner or later. We've already got the "Grammy's" and the "Emmy's". I guess we could call these "the Greedy's".

    I think my favorite thing is that there's actually a category for "best prophetic word" and the Holy Spirit isn't even nominated.

    Wonder if Jesus would have made the cut.

    Probably not. He wasn't flashy.

    Now just reading through some of the "nominees", it looks like an esteemed list of Biblical teachers. :rolleyes:

    That is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.

    Lord, help us from getting so frustrated with these goofballs that we misrepresent you.

    And for the low, low ticket price of $55, $75 or $100, you too can attend this prestigious award farce.

    Amen, this is the "Heretic's Club"

    Though Billy Graham is included as the token oldtimer, and though I respect him, he is no stranger to shaking hands witht he devil.

    That was the very first thing I thought of when I saw this on another message board.

    I say let them have their awards ceremony.

    The one I'm really looking forward to is God's award ceremony, the one where the Appalachian preacher who never passed sixth grade and lived in relative poverty and obscurity wins a crown for being faithful in preaching the Gospel.

    Or where a little old lady from China, who has to sneak to her worship service under the cover of night, will win a crown for faithfully praying for the American church.

    Or where a mechanic in England wins jewel in his crown because he knocks on the door of a poor family and runs into the night, grinning like a schoolboy, because he has just left bags of groceries on their doorstep.

    Or a boy in Sudan where a boy will earn his crown for being tortured and killed because he would not deny Jesus.

    And the highlight of God's award show is that, at the end, all of the "winners" will bow and place their crowns at the feet of Jesus and we will honor Him who truly deserves our honor.

    So, I say let them honor the Whites and the Parsleys and the Crouches. They will have their award show. God will have His.

    Never thought I'd say this, but give me back the Jim and Tammy Faye Show over this assortment.

    This, IMO, makes the 700 Club look like the second incarnation of the 12 Apostles! :rolleyes:

    I sent an email to Media Relations asking about the rationale for this. When/If I get a response, I'll share it.

    Why not, its just another entertainment venue. Its not like they are really serving God. Look at their stated purpose:
    Certainly nothing in there about bringing glory to God. Lord save us from preachers like these.

    Thank you.

    If it is as absurd as the comment as my fellow North Carolinian found and quoted in his post --

    Sorry, I just had to quote it again, it was so profound (pulling tongue out of cheek now).

    THEN It should hardly be worth the electrons it takes to post it. But I'll still be waiting to see it.

    One of the rare occasions I'm glad the employer's firewall will not let me open a link :)

    98% of them are TBN preachers and often called upon speakers.

    All but 2 are Charismatic, those being Billy Grahm and Kirk Camron.

    The rest are well known name it and claim it, prosperity gospel preachers, and of those the larger majority are the Word of Faith preachers.

    It cracked me up to see Joel Olsteen in there for TV Evangelist nominee.

    This part got me:
    If you will notice they insinuate that the presumably the Christian 'elite' from all Christendom will be there but from their selection it is apparent those elite Christians encompasses only the Charismatic view.
