Two Thousand Years of Wrong Turns

There's another hysterical preacher on TV, telling anyone who cares to listen that (Hallelujah!) God will show favor to His beloved people (Hallelujah!) and that God told him to pray over his audience (Oh, yeah!) and release fear and pain (Amen!) and doubt and sickness (Amen!)!

And now he's speaking in tongues.

Oh, he';s finished, and people are being invited to the altar, so that he can pray over them.

How did it come to this? How did the Jesus who carried a simple message of love and hope become a figurehead for charlatans who use techniques held in common with hypnosis?

Jesus never promised a life free from fear and pain, doubt and sickness. He experienced those Himself, and He was not delivered from them, through any kind of cosmic shortcut.

All He promised was that He'd walk that road with us, and that something wonderful was waiting for us on the other side.

He didn't need to use adult baby-talk. He didn't ask for Love Gifts in exchange for His message.

It was free for the asking, to those who would but listen.


  1. These preachers make me want to hurl.

    1. Me, too, but some people really love them. I got flamed on FB, big time, for this post.

      Guess the 'flamer' is so dependent on the likes of Benny Hinn that he's sold out reason to mindless obedience.
