TBN: The Vehicle for the Gospel!

Don’t let the title of this blog post fool you. I don’t believe for a second the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) is a vehicle of the gospel.

A friend of mine told me this the other day when I complained to him that nearly every preacher I have heard in Ohio speaks the same nonsense that you can hear twenty four hours a day on TBN. He claimed that I listen to all the wrong preachers.

He has no idea I gave five years of my life attempting to thwart their doctrines of devils through this blog. That I finally gave up because I was sick of these saintly people attempting to destroy me professionally, personally and financially.

He also has no idea that every false doctrine you can hear on TBN has been examined biblically and found wanting on this site.

Here we go again.

Let’s just say for the sake of argument that my friend is correct when he says that TBN is a vehicle for the Gospel. Let’s also say that my friend in as much admitted that I’m listening to all the wrong preachers. Logic follows that this vehicle (TBN) must then contain some false teachers and some good teachers of the Gospel.

Here’s the Gospel;

1 Corinthians 15:1-4

Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures,


I’m not suggesting that you watch TBN but look at this schedule for today January 7, 2015 and you tell me which teacher is going to preach the Gospel?

The Billy Graham Crusade should be ok and Greg Laurie is on at 10pm and if we are really lucky Franklin Graham might be alright but outside that all there is are flesh peddlers.

So, in twenty four hours of programming today we can get our flesh satisfied a hundred ways from Sunday and our spirit filled maybe one hour in a half and that’s if we are lucky.

That doesn’t sound like much of a vehicle for the gospel does it? It sounds more like the spare tire to me.

This weeks Calvin’s Corner was really interesting. Michael and I talked about the Reformed view of Baptism and we also discussed how we thought Martin Luther and John Calvin would respond to TBN and more importantly those who support it financially.

Juanita Bynum Typing in Tongues?

I’ve been operating this itsy bitsy little blog for nearly five years and over the course of those years I’ve seen some really strange stuff but what I just read here could possibly be the strangest thus far.

Juanita Bynum is typing in tongues?

Is Jesus Christ Jim Bakker’s Master or is Money His Master?

My good friend JB (not Jim Bakker) informed me that Jim Bakker is now in the cereal business and hawking his new blend of organic cereal on his television show and website. You can read all about his yummy for the tummy cereal here.

Is there anything inherently wrong with Bakker promoting his cereal, or any other product he promotes on a TV show that he pays for?

Nope, and we shouldn’t give a rip about this cereal or any other products he sells to his devoted followers. He’s free to promote and sell whatever he likes just as long as it isn’t illegal.

Last night I was thinking about Bakker and what he’s been up to and the following Scripture came to mind; Continue reading

Please Go Away Todd Bentley!!

There are some folks, well, plenty of folks I wish would just shut up and go away. Some of those people have small platforms so when they speak no one really pays attention to their lunacy. Todd Bentley is one of those who I wish would just shut up but for some strange reason people still want to hear him speak. LOTS and LOTS of people. Below is an interview Todd did with Lisa Ling.

The Shrinking New Testament by Boyd Miller

As the charismatic madness has swept the world and infected all the churches, the New Testament has shrunk to only 22 books. Today’s church worshippers begin with the book of Acts and totally ignore the teachings of Jesus in the first four books. The modern mega-church sermon is more interested in the accomplishments and wealth of a few Old Testament prophets than the words uttered by Jesus. Of course one could hardly expect an honest presentation of Matt. 6 from a man or woman adorned in a $1500 garment standing on a raised platform surrounded by body guards proclaiming their “anointing” and spiritual gifts.

The average charismoron is more acquainted with Malachi 3(which wasn’t written to them) than Matthew 5 and 6(which was). Sad!

What is a Heretic and How Do We Deal With These People?

We hear the word “heretic” brought up quite a bit these days. Sometimes folks using this word don’t really know what the definition of the word is or even how to use it. More importantly some who use this term have failed to listen to this clear statement on how to deal with heretics from Paul to Titus; Continue reading
