Question: What is a TV show that ruined the lives of many people in general?

If we are actually talking about shows that have ruined tens of thousands of lives then there’s no way to avoid bringing up televangelists.

These individuals have had people so desperate to help, to healed or to be “saved” that they have:

  1. Drained their pensions and retirement accounts
  2. Mortgaged their homes
  3. Liquidated their assets
  4. Borrowed money from family, friends and even financial institutions.
  5. Gone without food and medication

Some of the worst offenders are:

This Is Your Day - Benny Hinn

Hinn has been controversial for decades and is only now receiving the scrutiny from the Internal Revenue Service and the Postal Inspectors that he’s deserved for years.

Your World With Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar

A Georgia-based pastor who actually begged his followers for a $65 million private jet to help him “minister to the faithful”.

Believer’s Voice of Victory - Kenneth Copeland

Basically instructs people NOT to seek medical assistance, and states that prayer will help them overcome illnesses.

Enjoy Everyday Life - Joyce Meyer

Has been under investigation for many years for possible misuse of collected funds. Has been on air for nearly 30 years and has collected tens of millions of dollars during that time.

Paula White Today - Paula White

Both White, and her ex-husband Randy White, take in millions of dollars annually and have been under scrutiny by tax officials for decades. The Whites are actually one of the most subdued of televangelists, although they are also some of the most successful.

Frankly, so many people have given, and will give, their money to these individuals that they easily are among the worst predators ever to be aired on American television.

These are Charismatic Prosperity Preachers, nothing more. Worse of all, they all connect back to Kairos and the Interfaith movements.

Yes, everyone is on the path to God, some close by, some still seeking, some still learning, however, such ones need to be careful of those who belittle and trick them.

That being said, don't change lanes for such preachers, you can see by their fruit, even whatever they gain, especially currency, does not truly contribute to any works concerning God and his Christ.

      THE  TELEVISION  PREACHERS have made million and millions of dollars off the backs of poor folks, ignorant of what God's word actually says. They spread and repeat over and over the same simple lie....
      Here is the lie....
      All one has to do to be saved, and achieve everlasting life in heaven is to say that one believes in Jesus Christ,  and that they have accepted Jesus into their "hearts."    NOTHING  COULD  BE  FURTHER  FROM  THE  TRUTH !
      While duping the poor people out of their money,  these so called preachers live a rich lifestyle....  amassing huge estates ~~~ and become best friends with powerful politicians...  and when they die,  the news media eulogizes them over and over.....  Nothing these "so called"  preachers say or do matches up, with what Jesus Christ did or said!
      Here is the truth of the matter.....  The road to life is a difficult road,  not an easy road.  Those traveling on the road to life are constantly trying their best to imitate Jesus....
      They preach the Kingdom message,  just as Jesus did!  They do not get involved with politics....  imitating Jesus.  They do not learn war any more....  imitating Jesus. They worship the same Almighty God that Jesus worships....  Jehovah God!
      They pray to the same Almighty God that Jesus prays to!
      SATAN  AND  THE  DEMONS  are believers....   and they shudder when they think about it!   SEE  James 2:19.
      Thank  you,  dear  Brother  Elder
      MATTHEW  10 : 8
      8 Cure the sick, raise up the dead, make lepers clean, expel demons.  You received free,  give free ~~~
      ADDITION....
      Televangelists have been mass-media fixtures since the 1970s, when preachers retooled their messages to link Christian beliefs with a materialistic pursuit of wealth. However, getting a detailed account of most TV preachers' salaries has often been elusive, since many of these organizations release little or no financial data. The picture that has emerged is pieced together from accounts of lavish lifestyles, homes and book deals, with many television preachers netting tens to hundreds of millions of dollars.

      What percentage of children in Bolivia can purchase an iPad?
      I remember years ago adapting to the country I would visit by NOT making a "showy display of one's means of life"
      How is this an appropriate way to teach the world's poorest children to read, write and learn about the Bible?
       
      Jesus could have easily created a 3D holographic display of the heavenly realms for all to see in Jerusalem... But did he?
      Just because we CAN make great cartoons that entertain children... is that our true purpose?
      Did Jesus say "for this I came into the world to show cartoons to children"?
       
      We should spend more time teaching the Bible AND caring for their physical needs rather than be known as the new "Hi Tech" rich people that wander the earth showing first world PIXAR cartoons about the Bible to children.
      Just me venting tonight.....
      Can you tell I am in a cantankerous mood tonight.... UGH!!!
