With the recent scandal involving Televangelist Benny Hinn, this adds to the list of fallen preachers who preyed on viewers to feather their extravagant nests. These preachers are not just those who have made an error in judgment and been caught in a sinful situation. These folks have a lifestyle of corruption and blatant manipulation of the people to whom they claim to minister. Take note of the following Scripture to describe their corruption.
‘Then the word of the Lord came to me saying,”Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel. Prophesy and say to those shepherds, ‘Thus says the Lord God, “Woe, shepherds of Israel who have been feeding themselves! Should not the shepherds feed the flock? You eat the fat and clothe yourselves with the wool, you slaughter the fat sheep without feeding the flock. Those who are sickly you have not strengthened, the diseased you have not healed, the broken you have not bound up, the scattered you have not brought back, nor have you sought for the lost; but with force and with severity you have dominated them. They were scattered for lack of a shepherd, and they became food for every beast of the field and were scattered. My flock wandered through all the mountains and on every high hill; My flock was scattered over all the surface of the earth, and there was no one to search or seek for them.”‘”
Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord: “As I live,” declares the Lord God, “surely because My flock has become a prey, My flock has even become food for all the beasts of the field for lack of a shepherd, and My shepherds did not search for My flock, but rather the shepherds fed themselves and did not feed My flock; therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord: ‘Thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will demand My sheep from them and make them cease from feeding sheep. So the shepherds will not feed themselves anymore, but I will deliver My flock from their mouth, so that they will not be food for them.”‘” Ezekiel 34:1-10

When will Christians stop feeding theses FAT CAT preachers. Don’t you know that they have become filthy rich at your expense? Take the time to check out the preachers that you support and find out what they own and how much money they make each year. A preacher should be paid the average of the salaries of the people they lead. This is only a short list of the many who abuse their position.

I am nauseated to see the extravagance of the Televangelists, especially on T.B.N. and the 700 Club. The Apostle Paul named names and so must we.

Paul Crouch and his wife Jan pull in a total of $780,000 a year. Paul Jr. and his wife pull in $751,200 per year and the property they own is staggering.
Benny Hinn spent $8,850 to fly on the Concord. He stayed in the presidential suite in European hotels at the tune of $2,200.00 per night. He has a $3,000,000.00 parsonage which is 7,200 sq. ft. and is located in Dana Point, California. Annual income is $500,000 to $1,000,000.00.
Fred Price lives in a 25 room mansion, has a six million dollar yacht, private jet, helicopter and seven luxury vehicles.
John Hagee makes $540,000 in salary plus $302,000 as president of Cornerstone Church.
T. D. Jakes owns a $2.6 million dollar home and was recently given a new Bentley convertible.
Joyce Meyer paid $49,000.00 for 18 chairs for a conference room and spent $44,000.00 on woodworking in her office. She owns a fleet of vehicles valued at $440,000.00 and a corporate jet worth ten million, a 10,000 sq. ft. home in Cape Cod worth ten million dollars.
Pat Roberts net worth is between 140 million to 1 billion dollars.
Creflo Dollar owns a five million dollar jet and Rolls Royce just to name some of his holdings.
Juanita Bynum owns two homes: a 7,487 sq. footer and 6,748 footer on a 4.5 million dollar estate. According to tax records, Bishop Eddie Long Ministries, Inc. provided him with more than $3 million in salary and benefits, including a $1.4 million 20-acre home and use of a $350,000 Bentley. Long also received more than $1 million in salary, including $494,000 in 2000.

I could go on and on with these folks. They are a black eye on Christianity and should be cut off from all your offerings. Put them in their place and watch them squirm. They use the Health and Wealth teaching to take advantage of trusting viewers. This teaching HAS NO FOUNDATION IN THE BIBLE and should be ignored by true believers. It is a tool for these preachers to fleece the sheep rather than feed the sheep.
