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.

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

TBN Attacks the Senate Investigation

I was waiting for The Beggars Network (TBN) to weigh in on the Grassley investigation into the Sacrilegious Six. TBN has been suspiciously silent and I was beginning to wonder if Paul Crouch Jr. decided that integrity was better then money and not attempt to defend 6 ministries who bring the family empire big bucks. As expected Crouch Jr. defended his pimps and responded with the following “open letter” on the Charisma Magazine’s public forum. Continue reading

Is Christ Your Foundation?

One thing I’ve noticed is how rarely Jesus gets mentioned by the pimps on their broadcasts, websites, interviews and even the books they claim to have written. Gawd yes. Jesus rarely if ever. What type of spiritual foundation are the sheeple building if they never hear about Jesus? Continue reading

I Want to be a Guest on Praise the Lord!

Yes. You read that right. I would love to be a guest on Praise the Lord. You see, I have always been of the belief that if I can’t beat them I should join them. After all, who wants to be on a losing team? So, I decided to “sow a seed” and Gawd showed me in a vision that I should repent of my wicked ways, stop exposing the pimps and pimpettes and join a winning team!!!!! Continue reading
