Have you seen this video yet?

www.youtube.com/watch...

These 2 TV evangelists/teachers literally mock God.
and the sad thing is that they have misled many people.

Let the true believers continually make known the false
teachers and prophets. Men will deceive, the thing is
we must be wise enough to not let any man deceive, amen!
many thanks to poster Senecus for making me aware of this.

Clicked on the link at it says "this video does not exist".

Any "religion" requiring signs and wonders is filled with deceit.

John 4:

48 Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.

Mark 13:

22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.

Try under topic "speaking in tongues" page 18, in the comment
posted by Senecus.
I got even more enlightment knowing that Texe Marrs had a hand
in the video production.
Marrs is another who needs to be made known as a false teacher or
preacher, whatever he claims to be.
Marrs is against the Jews, and doesn't believe God chooses Jews.
Romans 10:12 says "There is no difference between the Jew and
the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call
upon him."
Matthew 2:2 says Jesus is the King of Jews.
Marrs makes claims that Jews are not heirs to the promise.
1 Corinthians 12: 13 says "For by one Spirit are we all baptized
into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be
bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit."

I read a similar account of tv evangelists/preachers under
government scrutiny for very wealthy income.
They got Jim and Tammy Bakker, Jimmy Swaggart also.
No one should be excluded.
Here's the thing, none of the 6 mentioned care one bit about
those in the congregation of the their church.
They only care about where they will spend their next
million dollar income.
btw thanks for helping to expose the false ones, I for one
believe God wants them exposed they are nothing
but greedy dogs.

Hello HS! It's always a pleasure to see your posts too my friend.

These are criminal preachers who use the bible and babble BS to generate money for themselves and offer nothing, zilch, nada, zero, etc...... To help the unfortunate. If somebody wants to make big money and pay no taxes, then register online as a minister, wave the bible around, babble BS and bless those after they drop money in the bowl.

I SO agree. I detest the acts of most televangelists and much organized religion. One only needs a relationship with their God. As far as tithing, I've given mine to the Lord through His people in need and poverty "the true church" and not to some building or corporation of religion. I know what the Bible says to me, and I have no need to go to listen to any sort of clergy tell me how to interpret His Word. They may take it however they wish also.

There's nothing in the NT, even indicating, that Jesus collected money from people after he finished giving sermons on his travels. He got food and shelter where ever he went, but no mention of him living extravigant as these criminal preachers being investigated do.

In a nutshell...

Tongue: Gr. glossa; Of uncertain affinity; the tongue; by implication, a language (specially, one naturally unacquired)-- tongue.

1Corinthians 14:2 For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.

Paul means that unless an interpreter is present, then the only one that understands what's being said is the most High. This is most unfortunate, especially if the one speaking in tongues is revealing great and divine mysteries. And based on what's written, such as at Matthew 13:11, these "great and divine mysteries" are in regards to the understanding of the parables concerning the kingdom of heaven.

1Corinthians 14:4 He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.

As it's written at 1Corinthians 14:22, "..tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not." In this, Paul means, at verse 4, that speaking in tongues among believers is unprofitable, as the purpose for speaking in tongues is to share the gospel with those that know not the gospel and don't share the same language as the speaker. Prophesying, on the other hand, makes very little to no sense to the unbeliever, but profits believers. Therefore, Paul continued by saying...

1Corinthians 14:5 I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.

Paul means, here, that it would benefit the Church if all spake with other tongues, as this would increase membership, but it's better if they all prophesied, because this would advance the already-existing members. Now, to return to verse 22...

1Corinthians 14:22 Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe.

Need I explain this verse? In other words, what impression is made to believers when fellow-believers speak in unknown tongues, especially considering that believers are already aware of the power of the most High? The multitudes that attended Pentecost were impressed, because they weren't believers as of yet. The fact that they witnessed such a gift of power profited them.

1Corinthians 14:23 If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?

Should we risk such a thing? True believers would never do such a thing considering such exhortation. At verse 33, Paul wrote, "For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints." And at verse 40, Paul instructed, "Let all things be done decently and in order." So, to hinder confusion and that all things be done decently and in order, Paul instructed...

1Corinthians 14:27-28 If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret. But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.

Paul means by saying, "that by course," "in turn," or "one at a time." And an interpreter must be present. It's that simple.

1Corinthians 14:37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

Who is so foolish to reject the commandments of the most High?

And that's that.

^5 to Bro Love. His intense studies are to be appreciated and pondered. Thank you my Brother!!

BTW, I think you know I agree with you on speaking in "tongues", particularly in this age and at the snap of a deceitful finger in many churches. Sad that ....

Thank you, dear Sister.

I particularly like 1Corinthians 14:23. This says, "If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?"

Of course, I'd like to emphasize up to the portion "and all speak with tongues," because this most erroneous practice is most common in our modern congregations. And considering that these same congregations claim to uphold all the Bible as "divinely inspired," it's shameful how they choose to ignore the overall exhortation given by Paul in 1Corinthians 14. Even more shameful is how they also choose to ignore that which our anointed Savior cited as the one concrete means of discerning who are and aren't his true disciples. "By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another (John 13:35)," declared our King and Lord, Yahowshua.

Perhaps, it's easier to feign a gift from on high than it is to share sincere, genuine love toward one another. And that's shameful, too.

True, our congregations are being led by thieves, robbers, and pillagers. They prey on the trustful, most of all. They'll get their reward, no doubt, unless they repent.

As to tithing, there's nothing wrong with giving your tithe to the minister that feeds you spiritual bread and water. If you don't agree with tithing, then consider it a contribution. In any case, there's nothing that even suggests that we tithe in the records of the new covenant, but it's a must we consider whether or not such a precept was fulfilled on the cross? How would the death of our King and Lord fulfill tithing? What's the significance between tithing and the death of our anointed Savior?

Might I suggest handing your tithe to a person you know needs the assistance. One time, a tithe of a mere $30 dollars gave a downtrodden person a new sweatsuit and a day at the YMCA, where he was able to shower, shave, and the whole nine. If memory serves me correctly, he spent the rest on KFC's "Chicken Little's."

Just a suggestion.

If ever again I was to go to a church and listen to a teaching, it would be yours, by far!! Can't do that kind of traveling so we will continue in the way of the past when we can, considering I have always had your wife's blessing, what a huge heart from God you both have!! More than I can say of other of my "brothers by another mother"!~smile~

Hello again ,Buck. I see that video made an impression on you ;)

It just scratches the surface,unfortunately. The violence done to the Word is mind numbing, and to see them "pack out the house" with "the faithful"- quite sad. An old adage still applies:

"There's a sucker born every minute"

And a verse that's applicable even today:

"For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions" (2Tim. 4:3)
