Televangelists: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)

  • 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.

    I'm not religious, I am an atheist and have been for years. I obviously see through their bullshit because of that, but how to Devout Christians who fall for this crap not see through their lies? If God were to exist then surely these Televangelists are the devil or some kind of Demon... They are literally sapping money from other people out of pure Greed and then shoving it in their faces by bragging about it.
    They are breaking 3 of the 7 deadly sins sometimes 4 maybe even 5 - Sloth, Greed, Pride and if you confront one, Wrath, some of them even commit Lust.
    so aren't these people who take from the poor to line their own filthy pockets the perfect example of a Demon or Devil leading Christians astray?

And if you found with sin.. Them heaven not the place you will end up at.. Jesus said sin will not enter in the kingdom of heaven

    I wish the mainstream media would devote as much effort to those thousands and thousands of churches doing it right and just ignore the few nutjobs out there...or at least make sure to categorize the nutjobs as not being the normal for most churches.

    Humanity's only salvation to live in Jehovah's Kingdom is to be baptized into the same religion as Christ Jesus. (John 6:67, 68) The Bible is a Jehovah's Witness Book.---Isaiah 43:10.

    Televangelist make my job as a local pastor much more difficult. Don’t worry everyone will one day face judgement and be held accountable to God. And according to Jesus, those who “preach” the word of God will be judged more harshly.

    How dare someone tell a sick person that instead of paying for treatments they should instead come to church and donate money and you will be healed better than doctors. And then if you still die (ya know because you didn’t go to the doctor) they can just be like oh it’s God’s will, it must have been your time to go.

    A preacher bragging about private jets is like rubbing your con artist scheme in peoples faces. Some of these guys are so bold that they just don’t give a shit. And then others are asking their followers to help them buy a private jet and acting like its gods will.
    I don’t know who’s worse... the preacher conning people or all of these dumb people that donate money and continue to do so when they use it for personal gain. Obviously the preacher is worse but these morons are also the problem. They believe that giving a church or an individual money will heal them or improve their life or get them into heaven.
    The people who allow these con artists to be successful are dumb as fuck

    I once went to a Christian church where they told me that in order to take one step closer to God, I'd have to pay $100 each time, and they kept asking people to take 100, 1000 etc steps. It was disgusting.I left and never went back. I still believe in God, but I don't let false prophets manipulate my faith in God. Jesus loved and guided people, and he always did it without lavish temples, or fancy clothing. He was humble and loved us all.

      @Jeffrey Stern He did...
      That's what his teachings are about, and hadn't he been crucified, he would've traveled the entire world; however, he knew spreading the Lord's word would get him killed, because "religious" leaders of that time couldn't bear the idea that they might lose their material kingdoms, power, and money, something that was not remotely similar to God's kingdom. Thus, Jesus entrusted the apostles with the task of traveling the WORLD and spreading the gospel so that everyone would know about God. He also warned them that they would be persecuted, harrassed, and possibly killed for the same reasons he was being crucified.

    These pastors know their congregations are sheep and have similar intellect so they appeal to them at their level and the methods used are very effective.
