Those who profess Christianity, need to act more Christian





In a recent Dateline interview I was disheartened, by a well known TeleEvangelist Benny Hinn, using money that is suppose to be used for his Crusades, to make ridiciolous shopping spree's and staying it outrageoulosy priced hotels, now give me a break.

I admit when I first became a Christian I was in awe of Benny Hinn, but as my faith grew I just could not watch him very much, maybe it was because subconsciously the Lord was showing me something was not right, this man was taking money from the very people he was suppose to help, and several of the people that were supposedly healed ended up dying from the very diseases that they were supposdely healed from.

I can not Condone the behaviour of Christians, who take on fleshly ways to promote their name, to fatten their wallets, and check books.

Now I am not saying I am against all Teleevangelists, I continue to watch Billy Graham, in my opinion one of our greatest spirtual leaders, and his son Frankin Graham who is caring on his fathers legacy, in fact I have a picture of Billy Graham, And Ruth Graham hanging on the wall above my bed, along with a picture of Ronald Regan, but that's another story for another time.

It is Televenagelists like Benny Hinn who are giving the men and women trying to really do Christs works a bad name.

Not every Christian is as greedy as Benny Hinn thank the Lord, but I felt it was time we take the spotlight off those who want the spotlight, and put it on those who are really doing Christs work.

We need more Billy Grahams in this world and less Benny Hinn's.

i agree; it is sad how some of these people act, and how they are taking advantage of the poor, disabled, or elderly. they are using the money on themselves instead of using it for god's work, and that is wrong, wrong, wrong! i like billy graham too because he doesn't use all these fancy gimmicks like the other televangelists do, and he is a dynamic preacher, too, besides. i'd much rather prefer a small church myself; the feeling is more intimate, and i tend to feel the lord's presence more there than in these huge megachurches like you see on tv. good message, michelle, one that is sorely needed! thanks for your courage in addressing this issue, i couldn't have said it any better than you have! you were spot on!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in tx., karen lynn. :(

We do need more evangelists like Billy Graham and there are a few that I watch like Mark Becton and others on the Angel Network. I am pleased that your announcement is what I thought it would be and congrats. I think that Joel C is really on target too. But I got disenchanted with the Crstal Cathedral because it seems so forced what Robert Fuller preaches. I think the small country churches have more to offer.
