    An American televangelist has asked his followers to buy him a $54,000,000 private jet for him to be able to get anywhere in the world without stopovers. He attempts to support his plea by stating that Jesus would not travel by donkey if he were here today. This will be his 4th private jet since 1994.

    Thoughts...?

    Is the scandal in question something you urge Christians to turn a blind eye to?

    Televangelists are well know idiots. I remember one guy in his white suit and hat with a big feather sitting in hos sheep skin covered chair smoking a cigar literally saying.."send me money"

    Do you believe the behaviour of the Christian TV preacher precludes him from being "saved" by his faith?

    Lashing out in spite at your detractors usually is.

    I am not sure that I should be surprised or that I should care?

    Are you concerned about Beyonce's private jet, Dive?

    http://www.mtv.com/news/2306670/beyonce-private-jet-photo/

    I mention this because she is a widely respected woman and all sorts of people like to refer to her as 'Queen.' She has talked about social justice and the likes.

    Obviously, Jesse Duplantis here is directly involved in ministry and this is a bit disgusting.

    But this is shooting fish in a barrel.

    What about Beyonce? or should I make a separate thread for that?

    What's the religion/spirituality angle with Beyonce?

    Do you think 'prosperity theology' is heresy - according to your own beliefs?

    The “prosperity Gospel” is not Biblical in my view. Jesus said Christians should expect trials and tribulations and that theme is interwoven throughout the New Testament.

    But the trials strengthen and refine our faith and God is with us through all of them.
