U.S. tax law allows television preachers to get away with almost anything. We know this from personal experience.
Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption will not be able to accept donations from Church supporters from the states of Mississippi, Nevada, Pennsylvania, or South Carolina. We apologize for any inconvenience.

  • Um, so those Christians, of which I am not part of, which many of us humble followers are not part of, are not representing Jesus Christ or God the Father and The Holy Spirit. If any atheist thinks we all believe that way, then they have fallen victim to the same cognitive distortions they accuse all Christians of having. Thank you for pointing out these horrible examples. Can you also give equal airtime to moral and ethical pastors and dramatically showcase what Biblical Christians do to help the world everyday?

  • It was primarily as a prop to vanity, or self-importance that the venture of Church institutions was pretty much a "viral" thing- this would serve as a prop to a periodic reassertion of self-importance; the institutions could also serve as a sort of crutch. A good many were actually marked with a portent for Christianity, that Pisces aeon; it's hard to say, but at times it might not have been entirely unwise to make use of the institutions- a basic, primary error was they were based on the idea of material gain, for a vocational priesthood class; they couldn't have the priesthood key necessary for an actual Church- from the very beginning, they didn't have it, the apostles and others being interested chiefly in material gain, fame, hegemony and power; an elite priesthood, running the institution which people would invest in. Billy Graham- an Ancient One soul, like many Church priests- stole peoples' personal power; left them basically in a pitiful state, impotent in almost every way! At his death, peoples' power was returned to them- this isn't true of Abraham Lincoln, an Ancient One in highest position; at his death peoples' personal power which he'd stolen was not returned to them; the nation permanently damaged and handicapped. There's no longer a religious Path, "Christianity"...

  • Governor Schwarzenegger, I always respected you, but this is insanity. Kristallnacht was a racist atrocity perpetrated by the Nazi government of Germany against Jews. The Proud Boys are not the equivalent of the SA. There is no evidence linking President Trump to the actions of those who broke into the Capitol, while Hitler was clearly the SA leader. I hope the perpetrators of the break-in suffer 10-year prison sentences for sedition, but extending that to President Trump is tenuous at best. You are entitled to your opinion, but I think you are acting a fool here by insulting 75 million people who voted for President Trump. Furthermore, the election disputes have never been proven false; they have only not been proven true.

  • John Oliver's mockery of these Christian Charlatans is surpassed by the mockery the Charlatans display for God. John's mockery is deliberate accurate and at the same time distasteful and emotive, but it sells and makes revenue for the broadcaster, but you can sense the disdain mingled in with the gratuitously Sarcasm. On the other hand the Seducers' posing as God's chosen feel they are honouring God / but deep down they must know - surely - but then delusion is powerful. Is the question here free speech? Is the dimension surpassing the right to say what you like which apparently is sacrosanct in the US? Do we allow wholesale asset removal to be entangle in the web of the free speech thread? The US must have laws that protect people and curtail exploitation. There is no excuse for this! Now before anyone judges me as contrary to the faith of Christ. I believe in the apostolic miracles, all of them. It's just that Christ gave men gifts. When was the last time you paid for a gift? Well if there is no justice on earth take solace in the fact that Blasphemy of this sort will be measured with a greater roasting and toasting in eternity for this lot. And I wont be praying that God forgives them. They are unrepentant and nothing shall change them.

  • I am a christian,So I assumed this video would Just be attacking christians. thanfully I was wrong It was attacking and exposings the wrost kinds of frauds, the frauds that use christs name to try and hide their disgusting Scams. Not sure how Well you know the bible but this is clearly not what it says to do. I will give it word for word to not misrepresent While all the people were listening, Jesus said to his disciples, 46 'Beware of the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and love to be greeted in the marketplaces and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets. 47 They devour widows' houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. Such men will be punished most severely.' 21:1 As he looked up, Jesus saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. 2 He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. 3 'I tell you the truth,' he said, 'this poor widow has put in more than all the others. 4 All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.'" (Luke 20:45-21:4, NIV) That there is the true word of God, I don't care if you reading this do not believe in God I am doing this to Show that what these frauds are doing in no way is true to the Bible. Jesus himself said the ones showing off their robes and their Seats of power ( expensive suits and private Jets ) will be punished but the lady who put two coins in and clearly did not boast albout it because the rich made her feel as What she gave was not enough similar to these frauds saying more money mears bigger seeds whatever that means. well the lady Who gave two coins she was blessed and the rich and flashy would be punished when they stood before God. I an not trying to convert anyone and I an Well prepared to be attacked for my faith, your insults won't effeet me take your best shot. I an Simply proving for those WI no may Not know the bible and think this is what it preaches. It's not it is the opposite and just i've the f.uh in the lbilove these frauds will one day be punisherd for using Gods name for their own crimes.
