Spring Is Here And It’s Fleece-A-Thon Time!

Spring is in the air, at least in some parts of the world which means the Christian TV networks either are or will be hosting their annual spring beg-a-thons. That’s right boys and girls! It’s that time of year when the networks bring out the specialty people who’s specialty is to separate the gullible viewers from their cash, estates, pensions and whatever else they can sell in order to continue to fleece the flock……oops, I meant preach the gospel!

Warnings For Christian TV?

Last night I watched the movie Elmer Gantry, a movie that has always fascinated me. This movie is a take on the 1927 Sinclair Lewis novel by the same name and stars Burt Lancaster and Jean Simmons. This fictional movie is so prophetic it borders on the ridiculous as much of what was demonstrated in the lives of the main characters we still see in abundance today……(source) Continue reading

A Lakeland Update from C Peter Wagner

(Phil: I received this from “Florida Dawn” and I thought you’d all be blessed with this latest news from the “apostle”……where’s the apology Peter?)

A Lakeland Update

From C. Peter Wagner

October 29, 2008

 

Dear friends,

 

This is an update on the aftermath of the Lakeland Outpouring.

 

As most of you know, a day or so after I went to Lakeland and helped align Todd Bentley with Revival Alliance on June 23, the veil of secrecy over a number of serious, hidden sins began to come off. God has now shaken what could be shaken in Todd’s life. On August 12 he announced that he was leaving his wife of nine years, and it had been revealed that he had been directing his attentions toward another woman. This is now history, but many have been asking for an update. Continue reading

Final Thoughts on Todd Bentley and the Florida Outpouring

I’ve written probably 20 posts on Todd Bentley and the Florida Outpouring. For the better parts of May-July the majority of readers visiting this site were only interested in Bentley and the “revival” down in Lakeland…..either they were for Todd or against Todd. There really wasn’t any middle ground. Two days ago I received word that Bentley and his wife were having difficulties and he would be leaving Lakeland for good. My final thoughts about what has transpired are below….. Continue reading

Bye Bye Bentley?

Well at last there is one verifiable miracle that I can report from Lakeland Florida and I am happy to share with all of you that Todd Bentley, leader of the false revival known as the Lakeland Florida Outpouring has decided to take a break from the revival to “re-fresh” and “rest” after 100 days of what I would generously call “ministry”. Maybe it had something to do with the ABC Nightline telecast? Check out the nightline broadcast at the following link;

Wait…another miracle that I have personally been able to confirm. GOD TV has decided to stop airing this false revival live during Bentley’s absence. Now I know it isn’t the 25 confirmed “miracles” gutless anonymous website owner was able to “confirm” but it is a start…..Here’s the link to the GOD TV statement from their site;

Gee….what will I do now at 4am? Continue reading

Please Read the Owner’s Manual

Before I buy anything from a salesman, I like to ask questions and I try to at least look at the owners manual before I purchase the said product to see if what the salesman is telling me is true or not. Last night I watched traveling salesman Dr. Nassir Siddiki attempting (and probably succeeding) to sell his “your faith is in the seed” prosperity message during GOD TV’S “mission’s week” financial appeal.  Continue reading

GOD TV’S Mission Week

This week GOD TV owners Rory and Wendy Alec are hosting “mission’s week”. According to them they need to raise 6 million bucks to stay on the air in order to continue to follow “The Great Commission”. Mr. Alec claims that Satan is trying to “shut their ministry down” so he’s brought in heavyweight fundraisers Steve Munsey and Mike Murdock to keep Satan from shutting them down. Continue reading
