    Interesting article, but is it true? And if it is has TBN people responded to it in any way?

    freeatlast! Joseph B. loves to quote from the Holy Observer---the paper is a fluke!

    Joseph! Shame, shame! You're gonna haff to stop all that foolishness!

    But I wouldn't doubt if the TBN were run by a bunch of A's---liberal ones at that!

    Hey, blackbird, is it the advertisement for low-carb communion wafers with the tag line "The body of Christ doesn't need to fatten yours" that gave it away?

    Surely this paper is a joke if not a pure hoax. Please say it is so. What we DO NOT need is a christianized Nat'l Enquirer.

    It was hard to tell, wasn't it? It seemed plausible, didn't it? That is what makes this joke so good. It is based at least a little bit in reality. But, Brother Blackbird is correct. It is a hoax.

    It sounds too true to be a hoax :eek: :D It's certainly the most plausible explanation I've ever seen for that collection of doctrinal train wrecks...

    This reminds me of this new study done by the Barna Research Institute on internet hoaxes:

    Barna: Christians Believe Almost Anything They Read on the Internet

    Sometimes, guys, we just gotta learn to laugh at ourselves a little bit.

    Ripped right from the very headline of the article...

    (Now I know this article is a pun, but...) TBN doesn't need atheists to do that. They are doing quite a good job of doing that on their own :rolleyes: [​IMG] . Every now and then as I'm flipping thru the channels I'll come across something on TBN and just sit there and shake my head in wonderment, and think to myself, "How could people believe this trash??" Truly sad.

    God Bless!!!

    JB I opened three levels of search on “Wayne Mailer” before I noticed the Vol1 in the title and the bad sports score and the funny poll and results. As for the Enquirer of the TBN and Charismatic community I think that the Charisma publications has this one stoked. I was a happy member of a local Assembly of God, I was KJV and OSAS but had that ‘judge not’ flag up. For the sake of fellowship do not make waves and quite by providence God gave me a free 6 issues of ‘Charisma’, I was so shocked and hurt I pulled out of that movement totally. It would not be surprising to me that Satan not only inspired TBN but that some Agnostic group was making money off this too, Just like the owners of the NIV producer Zondervan. I am glad you pointed out that you knew that it was a joke. It is a very tight page and well done. [​IMG] :D
