I don’t even know what to do with this.
After watching the preview below, two things happened to me:
- I threw up in my mouth a little.
- I appreciated the behind-the-scenes about their lives, so was headed to feeling “Awe, that’s so cute; the multimillionaire, Bentley-driving pastor was having trouble telling the truth.” So I teared up a little. Then I noticed it was because the glare from his Rolex was stinging my eyes.
I know, I know, I know. I should align with scripture about the prosperity gospel. I’ll send my tithe check in later for the forgiveness handkerchief that you wiped your brow with, and then I’ll be good.
Regardless, I don’t think the rest of the people in the pew are going to be buying what you are selling for too much longer. Sure, there are those who need a financial miracle. So, apparently Oxygen Network is going to answer their need by showing ostentatious amounts of preachers’ wealth. That’s cool, but the actual church won’t put up with that for too awful long.
Am I against having wealth? Absolutely not. But the industrial ministry complex has to fall.
I’ll just leave this here, and the preview is on the jump below.
