Wake up people, Joyce is the only one thats not a fool, you people are the fools...some of you giving your last dollar to a woman who assures you, "by giving your last bit of money...it will come back times 3".
By being "gods messanger", do you believe god would ever okay her cars, private jet, mansions,and extravagent spending when there are people suffering with nothing in this world? Greed and extravegance are wrong....you people are smart enough to know god well enough, that you do not need any confirmation from Joyce or other so called"messangers" nor do you need confirmation through the bible. Christians who truly believe in God know that greed and extravegance translate to a 100% indication that the person who is sending the so called messages"from god" and gaining profusely is as fake as they come. Don't be fooled, if she meant what she was saying, all the funds which go to support her luxurious life, would be given to charities. She say's "I work hard is it not okay for me to take some"....umm in your line of work, a so called messenger of god...no it's not okay for you to live an extravagant life.
She preaches Jesus went to hell for 3 days and nights, to pay for our sins...okay is she serious? Is that in the bible, are you going to believe that one too?

My opening post was deleted from this thread for some unknown reason. The op was present for over two years before it was removed. I gave credible information with links, in compliance with Topix guidelines. Below, I recovered part of the op from a quote found on page two.

We live one hour south of ST. Louis Missouri. Joyce Meyer Ministries is located in ST. Louis, and there is a repulsion and disgust for her extravagant lifestyle here.

Joyce Meyer has been in trouble for violating federal tax exempt status laws. For any non for profit business or ministry to be classified as tax exempt, they must meet certain standards. There is a cap on the salaries of employees or ministers. There is also a limit to the amount of possession's the ministry can own. Joyce Meyer ministries as also been investigated for income tax evasion. They have battled with Jefferson County over this for quite some time.
Joyce Meyer's attorneys advised her to sell some of their homes and reduce her salary in order to avoid prosecution. She shifted her money around in order to accomplish this.

Below is an excerpt from the ST. Louis Post Dispatch newspaper.
The ministry's board of trustees, which is headed by Joyce Meyer, agreed to pay
her a $900,000 annual salary in 2002 and 2003.
The board agreed to give her husband, Dave Meyer, the board's vice president,
an annual salary of $450,000 in each of those same two years.
The board agreed to provide the couple with free personal use of a corporate
jet and luxury cars, a $2 million home where all bills are paid by the ministry
and a separate $50,000-a-year housing allowance.
The ministry paid $1.475 million to buy three houses for the three Meyer
children.
The board authorized Joyce and Dave Meyer to control a $790,000 fund to be used
at their discretion for bonuses to "executive management."
The job duties of seven employees of the ministry include sorting gifts
"personally received" for Joyce and David Meyer, including cash and jewelry.

Below is an example of how this false gospel of greed is robbing both God, as well as the poor. Christ said that it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter Heaven.

Here is an excerpt from the listed link.
http://www.safeguardyoursoul.com/html/joyce_m...

Is Joyce Meyer making “merchandise of you”?(see Bible text above)

Joyce Meyer says: "You're on the brink of a miracle. Go to the phone and give $1,000,$5,000,$10,000 and $1,000,000; go to the phone. God has a miracle waiting on your response." / "The anointing is tangible; some of you should leave your televisions on TBN all night when you're asleep to get the anointing." / "This is inspiration, Oh! I heard you Holy Ghost! God is teaching you right now how to hear His voice. Go to your phone!" / "I believe that there are 10 people that need to match that $10,000. Your believing for the greatest miracle of your life, then sow the greatest seed of your life." / "You're not going to your phone; you can hear me while you're on the phone! Your miracle is waiting! Your deliverance is waiting!" / " Why are all these heretic hunters trying to get people to know God by criticizing people by name?" / " I won't get to the text until you get to the phone." (TBN, March 31, 2004)

Joyce Meyer says: "God said,'you can sow for whatever your soul lusteth after.' Sow $2,000 says the man of God." (TBN, April 6, 2003)

Joyce Meyer says: "I just love to talk about your money. Let me be very clear. I want your money. I deserve it. This church deserves it." ("An Empire Of Souls", Page 35)

God calls to him only the ones he wants. We are to tell everyone we can about him one (1) time! He will take it from there. Being saved is one step that can lead you to the true christ or the anti-christ. Jesus said he only approved of two (2) churches at that time because they where the only churches that tought who the kenities were. Do you know of any church that teaches who the kenities are? The rapture is one lie with 20 or so other major lies most so called churches teach. No one fallows Gods health laws, understands why we are here, and who Adam and Eve really are. If you don't the beginning how can you understand the middle and the end (how jesus really comes back) He said ALL will be deceived in that day. Not just the non-believer but ALL.

Those who don't believe are being deceived. Joyce Meyer is helping and will continue to help others. No Matter What Others Think of Her. She is not here to please you, she here to please God. Blasphemy and Judgment are not traits of God's followers. God Bless You All. In Jesus Name.

Joyce Meyer never says" You are on the brink of a miracle go to the phone" You definitely have to check yourself. Lying is not a trait of a follower of Jesus. I watch Joyce everyday. She doesn't even ask you for money and she doesn't promise wealth. GOD BLESS.

Why does the opening posts of this thread disappear? That isn't right... it messes the whole thread up. Is there a moderator here who likes Joyce a lot and doesn't like the first two messages of this thread?

I guess it's not allowed in Topix Christian Forum to disagree with Joyce Meyer Ministries or to bring forward hard evidence that she is a crook.

Oh please give me a break with all the judgmental comments; Joyce Meyer has written so many great books with nothing but godly advice and wisdom which she has learned from the Lord through years of severe trials when she was a child and having grown spiritually by leaps and bounds. It is mind-boggling how everyone wants to jump on the bandwagon to condemn. Watch it; you better look at yourselves; remember, he who judges-it will be measured back to you!!

First of all I would like to say "Judge NOT lest ye be judge" Joyce is preaching the true word of god. Her and her ministry has helped bring numerous amounts of people to Jesus Christ! It is not up to any of us to say if she should or should not live the way she lives.She has reached out world wide to help the hungry,sick,children,women,men ect. How she lives and spends her money is between her and god!We are all susposed to be brothers and sisters in christ. Instead of bashing someone who is preaching the gospel for things we really know nothing about we should be lifting and strengthing each other.

Joyce Meyer does give a lot of her money away.. and help those less fortunate. I don't think it is wrong to get something of value or be financially successful if you give something of value to others. I like her teachings and don't feel she is being crooked. God would not allow her to reach as many people as she does and bless her ministry if she was doing that. I think some people are very jealous of her success and need to be careful before making judgements without merit. If there is merit to the claims and she is doing something wrong then she will have to face God so stop with these rumors and let's focus on fact...the only thing we know now as fact is that Joyce Meyer Ministry's is financially successful and yes Joyce is profiting but she does work for that money by giving of herself to help others. This is America so she is innocent until proving guilty.
. Joyce meyer makes millions and millions every year. Her ministry spends just a small fraction of all that money to help starving children and adults in india and africa! Then after being there she gets on her private jet and flies back to her compound and lavish life in the usa. How can she sleep and live in such deluxe surroundings, and not feel guilty for living too lavishly..she keeps the bulk of all that money to support her lavish lifesyle!! U can make all the excuses u want but she doesn't have to live that lavish. I'm not jealous or a hater!! I'm not stupid either to believe its not about the money! Without the money factor I bet she would give up preaching for free !! If not then let her preach for a year and not keep most of the money for personal gain! Just for helping people!! Wake up!! It don't matter though, and she knows it! were never gonna stop these crooks hiding behind the bible, til this govt. Can come up with laws to change their crooked, greedy, actions!! But because of separation of church and state the govt can't touch them from receiving special tax cuts and perks!!! If jesus were here he really would be... so pissed off!! No ?? About it!!

Joyce Meyer is in no way "preaching the true word of god". Even her most basic teachings entirely contradict those of Christ and reject the most basic concepts of grace and faith. I have a thorough examination of her teachings and where they originate at http://www.joycevsjesus.wordpress.com along with links to other in depth examinations of her false and destructive teachings.
As for how she “helps the the hungry, sick, chldren” etc: the money for those “charities” was fleeced from her blind followers, not a dime comes from her. Instead, she takes hundreds of thousands of it to pay her family to “administer” it, and takes $250,000 per year for herself, to stand in front of the camera and have pictures of herself taken “giving”. This is such hypocrisy as to be almost unimaginable: Christ condemned the religious hypocrites of his time for sounding the trumpet when they gave large amounts to the temple: Meyer gets credit for giving other people’s money and is paid $250,000 per year for doing so!! And this in addition, of course, to the many millions she makes per year from sales of her “self-help” books.
How sad and tragic to see people who call themselves Christians so ignorant the most basic teachings of Christ and preyed upon by wolves like Meyer for their last dimes!!

Joyce Meyer clearly preaches all that is in opposition to Jesus' teachings. She does not obey Mt. 10:8 to give "free" or 1 Cor. 2:17 about peddling the word of God. She doesn't teach ones to follow the example that the model prayer of Jesus indicates at Mt. 6:11 to pray for our bread for that day. Paul counseled Timothy at 1 Tim. 6:8 to be content with having our needs met. Then he went on to counsel against the love and pursuit of money in verses 9 & 10. Ms. Meyer promotes the loving of Satan's world, such as at 1 John 2:15, 16, something contrary to the inspired word of God. Why would God be behind a woman promoting things that his word condemns? Why would he want people to think that if they have a lot of money & material things that it's a blessing from him when he only promises to give us our basic needs and warns against being materialistic? She is just 'tickling ears' of those willing to be duped. 2 Tim. 4:3, 4

As a bourne again child of God you should be verry weary of criticizing the preachers and message of God. If you are indeed a bourne again child of God who has accepted Jesus as your personal saviour then you would also know that the word of God also warns about this! You say that Joice Meyer is a fake? How many times did the jews think that Jesus was a FAKE and look what a suprise they got! I listen to lots of preachers messages. Are you also going to say that Bill and Gloria Gather are fakes? or what about Jesse Du Plantis? No my friend, you are probarbly a roman catholic and bielieve in the holy mother mary brother!

Red Herring. Joyce is NOT Jesus, nor is she Bill and Gloria Gaither!

Then you attack a different sect of christianity? No wonder you guys are losing so many members to islam, you can't even agree on anything.
