You can't beat Father Time though.

tajmills - Can't understand why anyone would listen to that charlatan..

How is he a charlatan?

Il explain ... 

He is a pastor of a church that is bible based.  

Yet his teachings conflict with the word of god. He preaches inner strength and the law of attraction,  which is a big no no to what the bible says. His message isn't bad or wrong.  The problem is he's using the church and it's people to make money and run a motivational business tax free.   He cons morons into giving money for god, and he doesn't believe or teach the word of god. 

Yeah this guy is dead on. The issue isn’t that he is rich mega church televangelist, it’s that he very controversially figure within the Protestant religion and amongst Protestant preachers and theologians

Every church is used to make money lmao. 

 

How is inner streangth and laws of attraction both no no’s? If your a believer you should believe in positive energy and your inner God given strength and Power lol.  Your not suppose to say “hey God, take care of this for me, I don’t have time”

If the church itself if making money and that money is reused for the items the church needs like repairs then it's totally fine. 

 

However JO uses his time while preaching to sell his books that he personally gains financially from. While the church is a non profit, he used the church as a platform to profit himself directly. That is a no-no.

I probably wouldn't be bitter if I had a private jet.

Yet, those preachers are always trying to out do each other. 

One gets a G6 and next thing you know all the others are raising donations towards lease a G7 (or whatever the better jet is). 

In the name of the lord, of course.

It pretty much told you all you needed to know about him when he turned away all the people in need of someplace to stay in Houston during the flooding.  Can't have a bunch of drowing people getting his nice minstry colloseum carpet wet!  It's gotta look good when he gets on TV and begs for money.

I thought it was actually reported that the reason why he turned people away was because the church actually was flooded, too? That it made it unfit for shelter?

Or was that just his attempt at an excuse? I didn't really pay attention, tbh

That was his (or his peoples) attempt to not allow people in.

Others got mad and went to the church and took pictures, proving it was not flooded. Turns out the church or someone from the church posted photos of another time it flooded to say this time it was flooded aswell, which was a lie. 

After all the outrage they finally let people in but told them they could only stay until they find shelter somewhere else or recommended they find shelter somewhere else.

 

To cap it off, a news crew went down to the church after everyone was let in and they interviewed JO. He was visible bothered with all the people being there according to many who seen the interview, including myself.

Thanks, I've heard the name, but never have listened to him.
