Senator Charles E. Grassley, the ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, is investigating six prominent evangelistic ministries to determine whether they have illegally used donations to finance opulent lifestyles.
Mr. Grassley said yesterday that he sent letters to the six Christian ministries on Monday requesting documents to answer a long list of questions about their compensation, housing allowances, checking and savings accounts, cars, airplanes and overseas trips. They have until Dec. 6 to respond.
The inquiry focuses on some of the flashiest preachers now popular on television and the Internet, many of them proponents of the prosperity gospel ‚ÄĒ that God will reward believers who open their hearts and wallets....
It's spent on learning martial arts pressure points and hypnosis of course. My black belt brother can knock ppl out exactly the same as these guys do - hand on shoulder or forehead. And he's not even saved (yet).
It doesn't surprise me that these so-called, not GOD CALLED preachers are only in it for filthy lucres sake. If more people would give the amount of money they give to the angel's of light to their local church, the Gospel would have around the world many times over. I am glad to see that someone in the Senate is asking questions. Thank You
