Glitz and Glitter and Vacuous

1/10
Author: mntrpt from United States
15 April 2007

I turned to TBN to watch a REAL show by an excellent TV and radio pastor, Dr. David Jeremiah, and I instead got bombarded by an extra half hour of "Praise The Lord" as they push, push, PUSH for more money!! This show is EMBARRASSING bad. It is an INSULT to sincere and serious Christian believers. From the glitzy stage to the outrageous makeup and hair (is this a Christian show, ladies, or is your second job walking the strip?) to the empty and vacuous messages that anybody with even a modicum of Biblical knowledge can see right through, this has to be the prime example of the stereotypical TV evangelism at its very worst.

If I was a non-believer and stumbled across THIS nonsense channel hopping, there is NO way I'd ever take Christianity seriously. The cast is an assortment of pompous clowns. They attempt to play on your emotions, and offer nothing solid or substantial about the Christian faith. This is the worst of the worst of the worst.

The best way to endure this show while waiting for something real and worthwhile? Turn on the "mute" button and watch the idiots do their thing without the sound on. Hilarious..... Or just turn it off.

Recipe for a bad Christian series:

Author: bluefire_72 from The Background
20 May 2001

Get a bunch of preachers, all with different theolgy, stick them all on a TV series where they interview other preachers with different theology. Some pastors have interesting theories (espesially the ones that agree with me) and some- don't. For example, to get people to watch his (utterly horrible piece of trash) movie, "The Omega Code", Paul Crouch stated on the air that it was a box office hit. What kind of desperate Christian is that? Also, T. D. Jakes, while supposedly Pentecostal, believes Jesus was not the Messiah. I, being Pentecostal, smell a fake. Finally, Hal Lindsey has had silly theories on the end times for decades now, always too suspisious, with several accusations of the AntiChrist. Jack van Impe (and NOT his irritating wife, Rexella) and John Hagee are the best of the bunch. Watch it for the chemistry between the witnesses, but if you want some serious stuff, watch each minister's own TBN series.

Uplifting show

Author: K. Baker (oddityworld) from Los Angeles
28 February 2003

Featuring some of the biggest names in Christianity, each week a new speaker delivers a powerful message. Guest have ranged from Tae Bo creator Billy Blanks, twin actresses Tia and Tamera, actor Michael York as well as Mr.T and Chuck Norris and of course popular preachers such as Benny Hinn, the late E.V. Hill, Juanita Bynum, T.D. Jakes, Charles Blake, and many more.

coming into unity of faith

Author: Godzown from indiana
3 July 2004

regarding commenters from may & aug: individually we each have our favorites concerning a speaker/pastor and what they say, how they look, etc. and even as we hold onto our rights to like who we like, we must allow that others like who they like and endeavor to find some common ground. even if the only thing that we have in common is Jesus. what we may not like about someone, be sure that someone else will. viva variety! and what difference does it make, as long as the gospel is preached? and how beautiful are those feet who bring the good news!

its true that even someone whom you dismiss as unqualified, for whatever reason. and you mention that reason. it may well become the very incentive someone else has to seek out that person. i know, because such a thing happened with me. i'd overheard someone putting down a particular church solely because it was charismatic., and it just happened to be the very church i was looking for. so being the sort that thinks for myself, i dismissed their unfounded opinions and quickly joined that church.

since there is no other in my area, i have taken tbn as my locally televised church. they have a broader variety of speakers, and a larger outreach program. good teachings, good music. good movies. what's not to like?

Excellent Program

Author: RoseTea
4 October 2001

While the above two persons may feel that TBN is "evil" or stupid, I find that it is an uplifting program that is catered not only to the needs of the Christian man and woman but also to those who are searching for answers that men like Bishop T.D. Jakes, Benny Hinn, Paul and Jan Crouch can give them. If we ever need positive programs that will not continue to heighten the violence,crime, profanity, and other things that are negative to the american public, it is now. In the wake of September 11th, I highly recommend that those who are hurting, angry, or even puzzled tune into TBN. There you can find the answers and healing that you are looking for.
