Default Meet the father of Televangelism.

Even the "good ones" are scum. This is really, really long but it's a great article. I'm going to post the link only, and for the few who have the attention span to read the article, you'll be better off for it.

I wouldn't throw EVERYONE under the bus... but yes, always be weary when they ask for money.

The best evangelist I have seen is BIlly Graham. He is dead on honest, AND OPEN about his finances, and for good reason. However, I won't launch into an American Christian history!

From the brief reading I did, the opening was talking about how this guy was a Godly man, feared God and was bringing many people to the Lord - but when you read deeper, it talks about how he swindled people out of their money (to make a long story short).

Everyone else, please add to help our A.D.D - MOP to understand!!!

Well since I don't live in a mansion nor have a limo, can I have a lot of your red cents?

I promise you'll get healed of any ailments, and God will bless you forever (LOL)!

I can't even get the page to come up. I guess someone is mad at me.

Default Re: Meet the father of Televangelism.

There is a couple of interesting things about this article. The slant of the writer is quite revealing, as is his ignorance (used in its proper meaning) of the different sects and parts of Christianity.

However, I am impressed that the author in some ways tries to disassociate him from other pastors and church leaders. That is a pleasing distinction not commonly made in today's press.

In contrast to this article, read up on Billy Graham. He has been completely clean of ANY financial issues, or most other issues for that matter...

to the chagrin of Hugh Heffner... who tried to set up Billy Graham.
