Right and welcome to POYSTORP pointcasttat engages in e holistic, Itique Christian culture. We go up withthesesent of COP CO, chacting the wit female honesty and thought provotingdistussion. I am with that and ANA hello luxury cause private jet planes, Bast,mansions and properties, expensive suits, extravaant TV sets, prosperity,Gospel, everything is so sacred and holy and serious feels like the etes.Even though it', two thousand and twenty lot of southern accents and bighair staring directly at the camera and into your soul assurance an empratheticword. Kitche and vaguely religious gift were for sale. They will pray for youif you send money oil, literal, snake oil salesmen. I scammy six scandals,big gestures and promises with overpronunciation of certain work,authoritive voices that speak with frightening confidence and gods to Harfand likewise and monish the demons to hell, with the same dim and vigorcomfoning listeners o promises of prayer while simultaneously terrifying,the gold right out of their bank accounts in into their pious pockets.What are we talking about? Tell Evangelis my experience of televagalist isactually quite limited. It's not something that we have a lot of overhere in Australia like obviously we have access to it, but I mean growingup. I didn't really see a lot of anything like that. The firstTel evangelist, I really saw would have been joyce, Myar, yeah and yeah. I guess as a teenager I was justlike. Oh they let Christian stuff on TV like that was yeah kind of my wholethought process behind it. It's so American! Isn't it very it's very, veryculturally part of like it's, it's a cultural to be a Christian like notjust religious but culturally Yeahrca anyways, whereas Hee. It's like oh joy,smile cool, just go nice teeth, they all have nice, til, Yeahd D. sthe means I think they pay a lot ofmoney for thet to funding wher Di the get money from ther. I don't know hardwork, definitely from God, God, Oh yeah, yeah t'Syou know I. It seems like it's a time capsure whenyou can a televngial, she think of let the big hair and the shuit and yetthe around two thousand and twenty- and I don't know why my mind goes right tothat in the hangmage tale. The book Serina Joy, Margr at would baste heroff a conservative. Tell Evangelist and tey change that from into the MINUseries that night yeah she was meant to be yeah virtelevangelist, I think of cirt Cameron and the Bananag of Agh isanyone not that is it was. It was funny him and Wont Some Other Guy Re Comfort,Yeh Re Comfort, so he has he. Banana devat were Cot Camin and the other guy. Theconfert Guy Roa Coun er were on this Tirat that the banana was intelligentlydesigned Wut the colar Tho w FRI thons. It changes color. So she s Noi, want toeat it and then the way that it's curved, so what the humans can hold itproperly. An no and ther was just a part which doesn't really matter. Thepoint is digoyeah. U, basically Aneti part was you could peel to anhonor andis easily accessible and their argument. It wasintelligently disigned, but the funny thing afbhat that is, I is designed forhumans over thousands of years of grown, an cultuating banana, so its kind ofevolutionon, evolutionary, sho, ceck,...

...mate IC, believe Yeah Yeah. Also Butais a Rihe when they're Brown, not yellow you donnow. I culd. That's true,though, like yellow, isn't the OPTIMM time to eat it because hits sugar isabfolly. Deve, it's Brown. It looks like it's a OL black, the black spot,blacker. It is a sweeter. It is and you're meant to eat it. Yes, yeah, butthen the textre s ul us go e, ixtures, even more disgusting, but that's justhuman preference yeah. But technically bananas are right and ready to eat withtheir brew Le Casa Baby Food. Doesn't it remind you of a conversation likewhen you had when you're a bit high and your like? Hey, Liv, eoi, the sow TallWhi? Are they snoky yeah, because I want some because yeah you'reabsolutely yeah? What are all these televangelis smoking? That makes themthink this is a good idea. Yeah! Oh, I thinkI know what it is: Money Mon Yeah. Well, isn't it Tammy Lee Baker, Jambacca's,wife yeah? She ended up, you know having a drug addiction and yeah andstuff. It was prescription drugs that she was addicted to. But it was thiswhole big thing and t ey actually used it like on their show its like. Youknow like web working through her yeah drug addicttion, because they're reallygood at putting a spin like spinning anything, but that same grace isn't extended toother people, no o at all the definition of a tellevangelist and,interestingly enough, it says now North American, an evangelical preacher whoappears regularly on television to promote belief and appeal for funds,and I guess what you see very commonly is that tellevangelism is prettyferociously. I guess tied to the Prosperity Gospel, which is thisteaching that God wants you to be wealthy. Yeah Prosperity Theology viewsthe Bible as a contract between God and humans. If we have faith in God, hewill deliver security and prosperity, and it emphasizes the importance ofpersonal empowrment. That God's will for his people to be blessed, which isan interesting rad of the Bible, because, okay, yes, maybe the Biblesays that God wants his people to be blessed and be healthy and all of that,but that doesn't necessarily translate into being a millionaire. That'sAllright Prosperity, Gospel preaches interpretation of that. Isn't I yeahlike prosperity. Gospel is very much like. If you have enough faith, thenyou will have all your wants and needs Bam yeah or it's that if you give money, if you give all your money, God will give it back to you inabundance. So there are people that give all their money, particularly totell Evangeles and expecting to get it back in some way, shape or form yeah and thereality. is they don't get it back, but the televangelists become really richyeah. So that just emphasizes the point of the tellevangelists, because they'resaying well, look how blessed I've been yeah. So I must. I must be telling thetruth because look at me. Yes, it reminds me a little bit of pyramidskime, I in a Sha yeah, multilevel marketing, where people who got it onthe ground level of it probably did make a lot of money, but with pyramidschemes, you're, basically increasing your competition by trying to recruitmore people to also sell stuff yeah an its exponential right. So if you get inat the base level, then very unscrupulously, you can make a lot ofmoney, but these people down the end of the chain aren't going to be makingmuch money and it gets harder and harder to recruit yeop, but they'regoing to look at you and you're going to want them to keep trying to recruitpeople. So you're going to say, look at me. I just went on holiday and believebecause I have so much money because I stuck at my tup aware or whatever it is,and you can be this rich too, and so they keep hopelessly. Hopefully I guesswhat I don't like is how I mean a lot of stuff, but mostly that they'repraying on the desperation of these people who like want them to pray forthem, because they really believe that...

...there's more power in the prayers ofthese Tellevangelis, because obviously God is bless them. So God listens totheir prayers. So fenny hins says hey. If you send me a thousand dollars, Iwill send you this little gold brooch, that is in the shape of a cross, and Iwill pray for your cancer to be healed and then you're going to go wow athousand dollars to kill my cancer because obviously Benny and is heard byGod. Then yeah go for it. Please take my money I'll go into debt for it, andthere's pastors Envangelis like encouraging people to buy credit cardsas of actor faith and like to open credit card as an actof faith and touse the money on e credit card to invest in their faith feature as like aseed and and that's a that I don't think that's the mustard see that Jesuswas talking about a D Nsamin in the mat like Les's e ow, the poor, the meek. Imean this Creflo dollar come across his meek as Kenneth Copland come across hismege. I was once at a conference in Creflo. Dollar was thethe speaker and he came to Australia and his private jet, and he talkedabout how prayor to getting the particular jetthat he flew to us, flew to Australiaon. He he had another jet, but it wasgetting old, and so he needed a new plane and he had a million dollars thathe'd been gifted and he felt that God was telling him to give that million dollars to the church,and so he did and then, a few days later he was given a brand new plan.Some crap like that it was this whole thing about that. If you give give useverything that you have like be sang out, yeah yeah, ittally T, that's itthat's it because there's the story in the Bible of the lady who gives herlast coin and yeah. I guess that that's kind of what they dive into there is give everything thatyou have to. You Know Express Your faithfulness to God and you willreceive from him lessings in abundance, but at that conference, where Creffleydollar is talking about her, how he has all these planes there was a separateeverybody paid a ticket to get to that conference. There was a separateoffering taken up for Creflo dollar like to pay him on top of what he hadalready been paid yeah, because you know people needed to show theirfaithfulness having grownup anmissions a similar thing. That kind of sits.Oddly with me post. All of this is we would pray for money weld, ask God tolike rase support and whatever, and then somebody would send money, usuallythe church or some of Ou supporters or whatever, and it was Oh thank you, God,okay, maybe it was because they were trying to follow God, but at the sametime that money didn't just fall from the sky came from somebody who earnedit going to a job and then decided to give it to us yeah and so that moneythat, whenever preaches go, Oh God will give Wo. Goll bless you it's like yeahyou're, getting blessed through literal people who have physical money andgiving it to you so you're telling this poor personwho's got nothing Ahas come to your conference to hopefully get healed andis believing that if they give everything, they will also geteverything they don't have. The network that you have they know the following:You have they don't have the cloud they're, not Televangelis, theyr, justregular people and wheres somebony going to come from is just going tofall out of the sky and yeah, maybe once or twice they might find a twentydollar ot on the ground and think that it came from God. But it's not that'snot changing lives. That's encouraging a false understanding ofthe Gospel and potentially ruining lives, yeah sick people to throw theircrutches off the stage because they've been healed even though there's noactual proof, any actual healing has happened. Benyin, for example, no proof documentary crew followed him around no actualproof that a healing has ever happened...

...that wasn't a plant or wasn't likevague and with no actual evidence. I it's trying on the vulnerable reallyand whatever you do, because it's not viabl, it always goes back to you and yourLackos sace and whatever you do and no matter how you dantcrupt yourself is. It doesn'thappen, it's always onto you. It reminds me of several years ago talking aboutPyramids Games and they do knot Haw to prey on specific times yeah. I knewsomebody said to me: Oh Hey CISH, I want you mate, Thi, ty and Yeahit'LD begreat and I'm shut. I went Tou the cafe, which had no fine signal either. No,and I actually thought my friend was shetting me up with somewene and endedup being this older man who talked to me about my dreams and my goals andwhat I wanted to Doang and how God had plans for me and all that kind of stuff.He would never say specifically what it was that he was shewing though, andthen he gave me a card and said Thet wasn't making the week after, and so Iwent with my friend to this meeting and it was fun Pyraidca stuff like, and Ilok that I was like hat twenty like now. I would just laugh at it an beSARCASTICA, not even go, but at the time I was at a young, vulnerable,disabled Impressinabl, impressionof, all young Christian girl, with nocritical thoughts. Oh know I shawd T at. I did have critical stop it that Ididit, because you're not allowed to have critical thought, and luckily Istepped back before I actually signed up for anything or committed, but Imean o easily. Isn't you can just be taken advantage of yeah? Any God's name,I an God name, it's a whole other level of explortation yeah. What'sinteresting is that Prosperity Gospel can be really suftle as well. It's not always in yourface. It's not always somebody saying I have a million dollar jet and you canto sometimes it's w someone standing at the front of a church saying I didn'thave any money and then I had faith, and now I own my house or you know what Imean like it's. Do you remember the prayer of Jeves Yeah? Yes, tat. We werein India when that was all going on, but an outreage team from here brought us acopy of the book like the Tiny Little Book in: U O Mitis Yeah. It's was heone of the judges, Yeah Yeah Bliev, yeah yeah of Israel and he prayed a very specific prayer, and Ican't remember it exactly, but one of the lines was when I pray that youwould increase my boundary. That was one of the lines and there were acouple of other things, but it and then ICAn't. REMEMBER ND! I'm not going tolook it ut because I don't really want to, but basically it's like full linesof scripture and for some reason it was e fad at the time and he was with topray it every day supposed to pray it every day and then God would bring youincreasing. Your boundary means you're going to get land you're going to get ahome, you'll cattle. Now that's but yeah youknow. Basically, it was if you pray this, it's the magic formulan, becauseobviously he had something special so but yeah, and it is that it's trying touse the Bible as oery Dr an Lo as some kind of magic spell yeah. When, if youlook at the life of Jesus, he didn't know in property, he didn't have a place to put his head.Whe was a socialist Yo. Oh I swore because he said thatswer yeah. He was there and I mean I don't knowlike if we want to get to in depth with this, and it's not like we're a bunchof socialist hippies, like maybe Bor therline for some of us, but we can allagree capitalisms like a kind of harmful. I know and I feellike thires, a direct link between prosperity, teaching and capitalism inthe whole. Like you can it's all on you?...

It's on you to work hard, you'll, become successful,work hard at your faith and God will reward you and those things kind ofseem to go, had in hand and considering televangelism and prospared gospel kindof originated in the states where capitalism is king and like freedom and independence andall those things tying together. It kind of makes sense that they go aheandin hand, see that's why you can have jet owning Kenneth Copland, who willargue that he needs it because he doesn't want to rply commercial and betrapped in a tube with demons, all he's flying all over the world and- and Isomehow he's comparable to Jesus who the foxes have their holes and thebirds hade their nest. But the same man has no place to lay his head how's thatthe same howis blessed out the poor, bless it hover, meek the same. As youknow, Jim Baker Selling Dooms Day buckets speaking of which do we want totalk about Ou, Kay study for the night we do so. Jim Baker is a tellevangelist. He basically was a husbandwife wife teen,with his wife, Tammy Lee Baker and together they started a program withpuppets and they were, I believe, televised with that to beginwith, and then they had a TV show that was aimed at children and then theystarted a TV show. That was basically like a talk, show it had segments in itand it had. You know, different preaches, coming on and andentertainers and all sorts of things and became. This really successful showto the point where they became a satellite network. He is a pretty bigdeal in terms of Televangelis and the PENTACOSTAL church in America he's eighty now so he was born in. What's that nine and nine hundred andforty, so he was born. Basically, I guess our end of Worldward to, and youknow basically following that was the depression. He was born prematurely andhis parents were very thought him to be very fragile, so he didn't have a lotof physical touch from any of his family. While he was growing up, so hewas kind of neglected in a sense and a lot of his upbringing was quite coldand I guess clinical in the way that he related to his parents and his family.He was also later on abused as a childs ectually abused by a family friend achurch friend, but he didn't realize it was abuse as a child because he hadn'thad any physical affection, so he was so desperate for any kind of affection.He took it. He he took it and then yeah that person kind of abandoned him, andit did so go on to say that he he had same sex attractiveness during his highschool years. They didn't really go into that further. After that, but therare alleations later n his ministry yeah. He had a really rough upbringing,not that that excuses any of what he has done, but I found it interesting to. I guess: Have That Foundation forunderstanding hurt people hurt people as a high schooler. He was basicallythe coordinator of a variety show that their school ran as a fundraiser, andhe did that every year until he graduated. Apparently he was reallyreally good at it and it became quite popular because of her people wanted tomarket him and he was like a DJ and whatever that looked like in the late.He claims that he actually in his last year of high school, that he hit achild with his car accidentally and...

...that's what inspired him to go to BibleCollege instead of going in another direction, but that's actually kind ofan embellishment on the reality of what happens because he actually, he did hita child with his car when he was a teenager. But it was two years beforehe graduated in a lot of his stories. He manipulates the stories to make themmore impactful and to manipulate the listener. So he went to Bible Collegedropped out after two years admitted he'd, never had the Bible and went onwith the woman who met in Bible College and married to become traveling,evangelist and yeah. That's where they kind of started there. PEANGELISTICYeah Kore. Why isn't he a good guy, though Ohso many reasons so his career,basically is you know, made up of this televangalism show and churches that heruns and all of those things he very much was about the money, so they mademillions of dollars and they built like a thin park eheritage park, which waslike the third most popular theme park in America. What is with Televangelisand building theme? Pathas, I don't even know. Kenham has aeation Tang Pot.YEA has a good NOA ock in it. Nthis guy had is it? Was it called heritage? Well,Ting, heriae HAP, you Wul, say yeah yeah, and that was, I think. The firstmajor scandal was that hem he had a big fundraiser to build the place. Ithadn't even been built and he had a fundraiser for missions like out ofcountry missions, but they actually used that money for the park not forout of contrimition. Well, then, later what he sold lifetime four day vacations hotel staysat the hotel at Heritage Park for a small parthikuit was like athousand dollars each yeah. So it was a thousand dollars for a thro livethreethree night and youal stay yeah e sold, thousands of them like forousand, hesold Sixtyzano, my God of sixty so mathematically. It wasn't possible tofit them all in it. Just yeah no, and it was intentional and it wasintentional- was just money grabbing, Yep and and so that's that's wasn'tmade the first big thing. Did he didn't go to job for that thorh tide? That wasone of the charges? Yes, okay. When was that when he went to jail, yea well, eigh ighty seven was when the courthearing yea start or when the accusation started. Yeah. It went onfor five weeks, the trial and at the end he was convicted of everyaccount that the jury said guilty on all charges. So he got, I think, foryfive years, yeah a five thousand doar five, five hundred thousand dollar line.That makes more sense, but it's still nothing compared to the amount of moneythat he had received in the whole course of this and then at the hearingat the yeah, the ruling. Sorry, no, he appealed it. You know because the judgesaid those of us who hold religion despise being made saps by preachers atmoney, grobbing, preachers and Priesk- that's how he repealed it or appealedit and got his sentence ligtened, because he said that the judge hadmixed religion and state and had not made a was an unbiasedruling and yeah. He won so yeah, and this coming from the guy who comes froma whole line of preaches, who mix, state and religion all the time I meanJerry, Fowell, the guy that he handed a heritage park and everything over towhen he was going to jail into his hand. He he's Joe Felel, the guy, who workedwith Reagan to turn the Republican Party into you, know. The tool of theevangelical right and like it just makes me so angry that he then use thatas like a reason to not have to be held...

...responsible for all of the evil, and hedid and he's like. Oh am mixing religion and politics not allowed to dothat. When here I am doing the exact same thing. He also pedald a kilo astha coronavirus. The silver solution which he is interesting, a WHO saidduring the segment he held up the blue, bottle and ash one of Hes expert,panelist naturalpatic doctor, whose name was Sheryl Sulmon, whether thestaff actually works. So he said this influenta that is now circling theglobe. You're saying that silver solution would be effective and sheanswered well like say it hasn't been tested on this stron croing virus, butit has been tested on other strange at the corrnevirus and has been able toeliminode it within twelve hours, totally eliminat. It kills. It do h,activates it il think later in the segment she also claimed. The silversolution has been provene by the government that has the ability to killevery pappage in it has ever been tested on, including shoers and HeyChiv, and what also provide uses withot, vibrant immune system as Wellan as aswell as an ability to deactivoute these viruses. So on that program, Ta Boto esilver solution are offered as incentives or donations to bake hisministry. Currently, his website ofthers Dariouspactages of Silvir solution for donations, ranging from a hundred andtwenty five and to three hundred dollars something funny about that Johnallote. Last week tonight his he's, who spoke about bakers, attempt to profitafter virus the last Weich tonight show created a website of their own. That'sa real webbsite that'. His own miracle ca join all this premium werlwolfsolution, and if you look on to it, look on the website, it takes visii it takess visitors ontothe learning page. That simply says you should not have come here. So that'sfunny and technically he's not selling itbecause you can get it for free. As long as you donate S, Hiy can't be held.Livebo, yea, yeah and Jon. Allit does a really amazing segment on Tellevangelisand then, but he connects it with texevasion and like using religion tobe tax exempt. So then he started his own church. Yeah Tat't. try not youtalk that. I don't know the Dahou Lady of Perpetual exemption, because it's all like yeah abouthow,they're being exempt from having to pay taxes and collecting all these like allthis money and he ended it in two thousand and fifteen and all the moneymade by it, because people were donating the crap out of like to itlike wanting to give him money for good and then he donatit all to medicone SOMfoteer so to doctors watoutboarders just so. You know, like name onetellevangelist Toso, an something like that yeah at ID in actually Sasli, it'sdoing good, not just taking. That was good, but good. Exploitingpeople's fears about Coronavarus to sell them poison, because really all it's going to do isturn you ashy gray and potentially your digestiv system, but not actually cureanything, because it's all speculative and not properly researched and nobody should drink it. Don't don't drea bleach kids, like youwere saying before he kind of Oe thousand nine hundred and eighty sevenwas kind of the peak of what he went through and then he went to prison andthen his wife divorced him, and then he came out of prison and he kind of roseagain three days. I got married again and started a new ministry and yeah. Now he has what have come tobe known as Baker Buckets where basically there for people wanting to prepare for theapocalypse in terms, and so they have a bucket of dehydrated foods and soups,and there was pizza as well, and I watched a tasting episode of it on Youtube. Theybasically tasted it and rated the food...

...they made like. There was pizza theymade burgers. There was chocolate pudding, there was some kind of potatosoup, there was all sort of sorts of stuff, but they didn't give any of it agreat rating. Basically, you can receive one of these buckets bydonating a hundred and seventy five dollars or something like that, and you get all of this dehydrated foodbecause you know you need to be preparing for the APOCALYPS, becausethe end is near because you know obviously Abama was the antichrist, andthen you know now that trump's in office is a warrior. Forthewd yeah nowthat trampsing office, it's it's not that there's necessarily an anticrist.It's that all of the natural disasters are, you know, obviously pointingtowards the apocalypse again. It's just exploitating fear right. Things arecrazy in the world right now, it's two thousand and twenty don't really need to say anything else,especially if you live in America right now. You probably feel like you arenyin times and he's exploiting it by saying. Lookyou want to be ready, there's not going to be any food. You May as well, buy mybuckets for a thousand dollars or whatever and yeah something that was interesting,that they pointed out on that Youtube. Video was that for a lot of the thingsyou needed boiling water, you needed like a refrigerator. You neededfunctioning oven, so you know in the apocalypse, assuming you have afully functional kitchen: you'll be fine with ti buck, to have a microwave,yeah yeah, but you'll be right. If you're one of the rich people Ho've gottheir private bunkers right. That's because you believe inprosperity, GOS SOS SI you're gonna got Ginto deck you out. I wonder if JimBaker has a Bunka, the Baker Bunker Baker buckets, I can eat anything. Some of thosepeople have filmed like rapture videos and I've got them and like Thi Raptarhappened and then thore's are Dovin. Intesiows hello, the racttrugs happenedver year. They wake up and like pause it again for another day because, likeI guess, because the day they disappeared, like Yot'll, just bereleased into Theo yeah, probably just ' thank Ou backis to e, like have alittle bit of a nostalgic, bring thei reminded like the ytk panic, an o onethousand nine hundred and ninety nine Itas pretty minimal, though like thepanic man. Well, no, I on TNEM that shooting Youscru Friday, not I'mlike.Oh Mad, not happened. Why is TNOBODI was blike? Why is no one talking aboutthis? Like the day, I discovered acid rain. I was like why aren't we talkingabout ad rain turns out it's not as big a deal as what I read in EncyclopediaRigh, but YTK same thing, but this these Baker buckets remind me of DoomSta da Prefe, yeah yeah. Definitely those people are afraid. I mean there'sa fine line between being prepared and afraid, I'm an anagram three, so I liketo be prepared and a feel productive of. That's why I'm producteve in preparingfor the future, and I feel like there's a healthy level of anxiety that helpsme prepare for the future. This is like to an extreme, and people areexploiting that for your and it's not even just the exploitation of fear.It's the exploictation of people's faith is the exploitation of people'snavity. It's the exploitation of people being attracted to thecharismatic person on the other side of the TV, and while I don't agree withsome things in the Bible and I'm not saying, I totally endorse it. Whatthey're doing is screwing some bits of the vible that are actually quitebeautiful and not intended for evil. How isn't that averse? What you have intended for? You will go to use for Goodwell what it wasintended for good. They are using for evil to twist people's faith into fearand get money out of it. There is often quite a tight link totell Evangelis and scandal. Oh Yeah. What's up with that? I mean I wonder if it s isn't justpeople in the public eye, because you...

...know the royal family there's alwaysscandals there and, like you know, Hollywood there's always scandals amongthe celibities, because no one cares about Joe Blor who's in the middle of ascandal trailer park, whatever yeah. No one cares about h scandals in my lifereally they're not going to make media. I think there's a difference between JoLo and someone was a platform telling other people had all thise sor of taing.Maybe it's just this happens everywhere, but because they're famous we hearabout it, HMM, but maybe, but what about the fact that they should be holdto a higher standard? Perhaps because of what they're saying? Well, not even I said, but maybe theyshould be held to the things that they say. They believe yeah see that's hardbecause yes, absolutely, but on the other hand, we're all human. I don'tknow. So what are some of the scandals that so we were talking about Jim Bakarand we left out one of the big ones, which was the alleged Sexual Aviewse of Jessica Hanone of his employees at a hotel by him and his cahost of the show that he wasdoing she claimed that they raped her and that he said afterwards that or healways coo said that what was it the shepherd and the? I think it's when youhelp the shepherd. You help the sheep yeah. As in you look after me, you'rereally helping the people that I'm looking after when you serve theshepherd, you help the Shapelyehatis whatshecaimeand. She stuck to it herwhole life and he even came out with a book later and admitted to it, but hewas like Oh, but it was consensual, which you know. No one can prove youthe way, but I'm inclined to believe that with his history, I'm probablybelieve the young. You know young girl working in his church who he asked tocome there for what was supposed to be a babysitting GIG and then turn intothis. So there was that and there's the money stuff I feel like it breaks downinto three major types. So we've got like the six scandals we've got. They lie about their money, so I talike the Road Yep and they lie about with their selling so fake healings.What was a Peter pop off? Who was exposed? People thought that he, Godwas downloading into his mind, what the illness was even down to like whatstreet address. They had and that's how much God cared about them because hewould say it and he'd be like. Oh, is your name Rachel? Yes, do you live attwelve blueberry lanees? I know you're deaf and your leftear, yes, okay,Godwin Preag, you turns out his wife was feeding it to him through anairpiece, because everybody who entered the hall had written down on prayercards where they were from and what their prayoneeds were. So that's thethird thing they're lying about what they're selling or what they're doing yeah like holy oil and all that andsome of the other scandals. So I found an article in USA Today and the headline tells you everything:Oh fraud, private jets on a Lambagini, ten evangelists who face controversy.So we've got Kenneth Copland, who said the demon thing about how he didn'twant to be stuck in a long tube with a bunch of demons and that's why he plies private insteadof commercial and then he immediately backtracked on it and said No. I neversaid that, even though he did we've got Jesse duplantis Louisiana Minister, whohas a private shit as well, and he said now. Some people believethat preachers shouldn't have jets is: is 'n a video from two years ago in twthousand and eighteen. I really believe that preachers ought to have everyavailable outlet to get this Gospel preach to the world. In the same video,he showed off a photo of the three planes owned by his ministry.
