Televangelists: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)

  • Published on Aug 17, 2015
  • U.S. tax law allows television preachers to get away with almost anything. We know this from personal experience.
    Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption will not be able to accept donations from Church supporters from the states of Mississippi, Nevada, Pennsylvania, or South Carolina. We apologize for any inconvenience.

    When will Christians wake up to these snake-oil shonky charlatans-"prosperity gospel" is the complete opposite to Christ's teaching of egoless unconditional love.

    All false prophets and not real Christian's.
    You are using a false narrative to force the negative view of Christianity.
    Go watch Chuck Missler, a true preacher.

    It's disgusting, in this day and age, that people can still get away with and think there's nothing wrong with the saying "well if your too dumb to figure it out, than I didn't do anything wrong" NOPE you did do something wrong and you are a fucking SCUMBAG, who doesn't deserve to live amongst us humans!

    Amen...when the people are *ignorant* and do NOT read nor understand *THE BOOK* but accept what their *prosperity* (not gospel) preachers say as gospel, you can say and do whatever you want, and the ignorant people applaud and say Amen to their own demise.
    A church is simply an assembly of people called out for a specific purpose, the purpose they are called out for matters not, they are still a church.

    1:15 to 1:24 , I'm a doctor, and it's not funny, giving religious related hope instead of medical attention leads to progression of most of disease, and you know what diseases religious related BS wouldn't make worse ? Diseases that have no progression, that's it, bottom line.
    I'm saying it's dangerous, it's fucking dangerous, it's not common for a doctor to use fucking in public, is it ?? so you can understand how serious religious BS can affect our work, common people try getting help from specialists and expert in any aspect of your life, not religion, anyone or anything saying "I know everything, i can do anything" and things like that shouldn't be trusted, Religion and Trump are 2 examples.

    You know what gets me how most of these people who said thumbs down to this video are so diluted, the main reason why most people fall for these so-called pastors is because they've never really study the Bible they don't believe in a life after death they believe in life on planet Earth or a Prosperity message it really depends on which group you're talking about and these snakes take advantage of people's ignorance and use it to make money now I'm not a fan of John Oliver but this is probably one of the most hilarious things I've seen in awhile

    join the church of music. thats enlightenment where the source of the message isnt getting paid. moneys pretty fucking pointless where I've spent billions of years trying to get some more life too. making stationary moves, BEING across the past 6 years in the last 3 hours. all from the comfort of my own bedroom. Get it through your heads i am your reckoning, the walking paradox. i am not bound by space or time, all i want is for everyone to have, THEIR GOD GIVEN RIGHTS OF DOING THE SAME. Start reciprocating the energy you've stolen willingly and we will all be able to have a happy existence free to explore as I originally intended. if you cant agree to that. we as a planet have no need for you to be here. go start your own shit somewhere else because I'm taking mine back completely. It would be wise to not antagonize me into a serious fight, and if you do, i will make it public. the amount of time manipulation and reality distortion from where the sun went down on me, didnt go unnoticed by you. and i did it all simply to have some real fucking music again. noticing songs that for me did not exist before midnight. I brought myself and artists back from the dead too. gradually piecing together fueds that branched months happend seconds only seconds apart, i know my pattern and my formless self is becoming fully conscious despite your efforts to dissuade of my reality. I am not delusional and my destroyer slef you wNt so badly is MINE, becauee it is me i let you all find it and you used it i went to hell crawled out... etc. lets please skip the part where you refuse and paint me to be the hidden bad guy, if you sant me to be the bad guy I WILL BE YOUR PERSONAL BOOGIE MAN. The level of greed you all have displayed is sickening. You wonderful people have managed to awaken me, congratulations. id say you should've quit while you had the chance but you're just too greedy. Reality is once again mine to play with and mold. the amount of times i failed and succeeded never having even stood up from this bed I've been laying in literally having me dancing giddy, and i should thank y'all honestly. What you resist persists, and this is your 3 warning. im trying to get better and change my destructive ways to work with you. reject me and strike 3. keep in mind. in the past 3 hours i learned how many of the ways i'm gonna deal with you would be semding me hell. SO YOU KNOW, ALL OF THEM which is fine with me. i can kill myself now, taking my true form and you cannot hide me from myself. I'll do the time in hell if i must to free the people. but i promise i will be adding to your eternal torment there as well, I'll be back on Earth by October. Y'all however, will never leave hell. That's a promise.

    Gotta love the Christian's coming here. It's like none of them have ever heard the no true scotsman fallacy. These people are Christians! If it makes you feel shitty being in the same boat, maybe you should reconsider your position. After all, you as a Christian are standing up for some very vile and dangerous ideas. You both look the same to the real world!

  • The TRUTH Trumps all lies from the enemy.

    8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
    9 Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace, not by eating ceremonial foods, which is of no benefit to those who do so. 10 We have an altar from which those who minister at the tabernacle have no right to eat.
    11 The high priest carries the blood of animals into the Most Holy Place as a sin offering, but the bodies are burned outside the camp. 12 And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through his own blood. 13 Let us, then, go to him outside the camp, bearing the disgrace he bore. 14 For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come.
    15 Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise-the fruit of lips that openly profess his name. 16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
    17 Have confidence in your leaders and submit to their authority, because they keep watch over you as those who must give an account. Do this so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no benefit to you.
    18 Pray for us. We are sure that we have a clear conscience and desire to live honorably in every way. 19 I particularly urge you to pray so that I may be restored to you soon.

    One of my favourite pieces on faith healing is probably Tim Minchin's Thank You God. Has a few bad words in it, but there is a good point. It's about the mother of a man he met, who insists that her cataracts were healed by God, though as he points out it is more likely to be "a misdiagnosis... a record-keeping glitch... or... spontaneous remission" than an "omnipotent ophthalmologist" To be honest, a lot of his stuff (Storm, The Good Book) is critical of faithful morons, but not of faith

      Tithe teachers are teaching a false doctrine. The tithe was purposefully meant for the Jews and it was always ever food not money, unless you couldn’t carry your increase to Jerusalem. The tithe is just 1 of 603 Torah Laws kept by Jews, so why are modern day preachers only focusing on following 1 and not all of them? If you keep one you must keep them all. The tithe was never meant for the Gentiles who were the grafted in ones and for this they should feel lucky but instead they blaspheme the teaching of Christ for monetary gain. Google Lew Ayotte, he explains this tithe and preachers salary burdens put on the ppl in great detail.

    There are frauds in every profession,like in the media,like the "Daily Show," like C.N. N., as a news program, like congress.Fraud is a fraud.It is all, about the acceptance of Jesus son of God as savor. Accept that he died for all of us,so we might have ever lasting life.It is our choice.I give none of there people any time.So to brand all of us Christians as being like these people is just ignorant. Oh if the Church owns the house ,it is tax exempt,but if the Pastor owns it,it is not tax exempt. The only TV preacher I watch is Hagee. All his offers that he sells go to fund homes in Texas for unwed mothers that want to keep the baby. and another home for the ones given up. Better than aborting them.Tax dollars go to groups and individuals that kill baby's,no tax dollars go to groups that save baby' that right liberals?
