DO RELIGIONS HELP OR HINDER DOMESTIC VIOLENCE VICTIMS?
Popular televangelist Pat Robertson recently advised a child who wrote in asking what to do when his father waves a gun around the mother when they fight. With all apparent concern and sincerity, the TV preacher told the child, “you don’t want to get your father busted,” and that instead of calling the police, the child should tell his mother to tell the father to get help. Huh?? This man clearly has no business giving out advice about domestic violence when he so clearly has no grasp of what it is nor how to handle it. Unfortunately, the young listener isn’t the only one who is getting dicey and dangerous advice about DV.
So is Robertson typical of the religious stance on domestic violence? Are women being given advice by their clergy that is wrong, harmful, lacking in understanding of what DV is? Unfortunately, some women are. The good news is that some clergy have the knowledge, understanding and common sense to really help in these situations.

The Devil Made Me Do It by Colette R. Harrell coming June 24, 2014! Order copies today.
The voluptuous Esther Wiley has always known that she is special. She's a tiara-wearing, wand-carrying kind of Cinderella princess in disguise. The problem that her very own Fairy Godmother, the Prophetess Mother Reed, struggles with is getting her to live like it.
Briggs Stokes is the reluctant heir to his father's worldwide, multimillion-dollar televangelist ministry, yet he yearns to be his own man. His past mistakes have caused him a private life of hurt and loneliness.
Esther and Briggs meet and develop a deep soul connection, until tragedy strikes and the two are thrust apart. Their separation leads each down a different path scattered with emotional minefields. While each step they take brings them closer to who they were always meant to be, the devil is on assignment. He sends in reinforcements to usher in confusion and create chaos, and soon no one is safe. The members of Love Zion church reel from the rumors, innuendo, and downright sabotage that is going on around them.
When others devise evil schemes to seek the destruction of Esther and Briggs through jealousy, greed, and murder, only divine intervention can save them. As an all-out battle for dominion breaks out in the heavens, will Esther and Briggs become a casualty of war?

This is Beyond the Airwaves: The Infinity Project, where we go beyond the mainstream media and tackle issues that don't seem so important to the major networks.
There are some crazy people in the world, and nobody could be crazier than 700 Club televangelist Pat Robertson. He's said things that frankly make us wonder if he's high on something, including blaming the 2010 Haitian earthquake on their voodoo beliefs, and now saying an asteroid will hit Earth this week. We'll look at the long history of his weird rants and ask why ABC Family CANNOT take the 700 Club out of its lineup.

I never heard of sowing seeds or building a covenant with God for a price until I started listening to and watching all of these Televangelist on youtube.
These are popular and even famous People you know i.e Creflo Dollar, T.D Jakes, Kenneth Copeland, Peter Popoff, Juanita Bynam, Thomas Weeks, Robert Tilton, Joel Olsteen etc, etc, etc.
What these people all have in common is their ability to speak to the common chrisitian believers via television and get them to send in their money to them, and they send it by the millions even multi millions.
I know it takes a lot of money to build a ministry and I also know ministries help to promote the word of God and his Kingdom. That being said, I see/hear a lot of promoting of Ministers & their Ministries in the name of God but I see very little of their good work though I have watched/heard many of them speaking of the sowing of seeds in the name of the Lord at the cost of as little as $58.00 and as much as $1,000.00 to get God to see your commitment to His Kingdom.
I personally take offense and issue with these tactics of stealng money from the poor, the meek, the weak, the elder, the unsuspecting (you get my drift) so that these so called prophets, messengers, preachers, teachers of Gods words can live lavish, outlandish and sometimes sexual perverse lifestyles. If you are interested in speaking on or listening in on this subject please tune into our show this Sunday, July 25th from 2-4pm pacific standard time at www.blogtalkraio.com/jay-king or call in at 347-205-9366 we hope you can make it to what will be a very elightening conversation.

Your spiritual growth is an intimate and personal relationship with self. Far too often you give your power away to the latest guru or televangelist telling you what they will do for you and your spiritual growth. I have found in my professional career as a choice expert that spiritual growth is one of the top three concerns that people have. Are you in this percentile?
Are you growing in spirit the way that you want to? Can you recognize the signs that are telling you that you have grown? If you don’t know the signs how can you know if you are growing or not? What does a clear plan for your spiritual growth look like?
Join me, Dr. Wendy Dearborne choice expert and expressions coach and artist Olivia Lashley as we explore the intricacies of your spiritual growth. .
Televangelist Eddie Long And The Black Church
YAHSHUA/JESUS SAID: But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Acts 1:8
Since you've been born again, have you witnessed to anybody about YAHSHUA/JESUS? Have you been obedient to the words of YAHSHUA/JESUS found in Acts 1:8?
Unfortunately, statistics show that 9 of 10 people don't witness about YAHSHUA/JESUS. They leave that up to the pastor or to the televangelist.
We were NEVER told to go around and teach prosperity.....gaining the riches of this world, However, we were told the following by YAHSHUA/JESUS in Matthew 28:19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
What is a DISCIPLE?
How do we make DISCIPLES?
What if I can't go to the NATIONS? Who do I witness to?
What skills do I need to be a witness of YAHSHUA/JESUS?
Call in this evening and LET'S TALK ABOUT IT!
Romans 11 and the Jews:
Go into any Christian bookstore and browse the "End Times" shelves. Turn on any televangelist prophesy preacher, attend any Bible prophesy conference you choose, and what do they all have in common? You guessed it: Israel and the Jews. Aside from the truth or error of what you'll read and hear, that marketing niche has been "big business" for Christian purveyors of mass media, and for over 50 years. This Thursday night, we explore why. For over 50 years, most of the evangelical churches have been under the thrall of a belief system called "Dispensationalism" Opposing that is a position called Covenant Theology, more prevalent among Calvinistic and Reformation churches. This Thursday night, I cordially state my position (Covenant Theology), lay out the 10 basic differences between both in a non-judgmental way, and invite responses. Turn in and take notes! Your host: Rev. Rick Anderson, on "Jewish Roots", each Thursday at 9:30 to 10:30 pm EST. Listen LIVE through Twitter, LinkedIn, GooglePlus and Facebook/com/Fougcrew.

We started a discussion last week about televangelist and whether they were doing Gods work taking money from the poor, weak, elderly & unsuspecting. Overwhelmingly the people spoke about how televangelist were taking advantage of and even stealing money from to maintain their lavish & plush lifestyles, but we also had those who defended it and said we had no room to judge these people or their deeds and only God has that power. If you would like to get invloved in this hot topic please tune in to our show "the way I see It" at www.blogtalkradio.com/jay-king or call in at 347-205-9366 from 2-4pm pacific standard time (4-6 south and midwwest & 5-7pm east coast) I hope you tune in.
Within the New Apostolic Reformation movement and the world of televangelists, eschatology is a hot topic. In this episode of Eye on the Paranormal, host Kirby Robinson will explore the so-called prophesies of modern-day Christian “prophets and apostles” who have their unique perceptions of the End Times. Among other things, Kirby will discuss:
Texas megachurch pastor John Hagee’s “Blood Moons” prophecy;
What televangelist Jim Bakker is selling these days;
Rick Joyner’s alleged heavenly visit — Was it heaven or was it hell?
Prophets or profits? Kirby’s discussion will enable you to discern the difference.
A Christian paranormal investigator, demonologist and exorcist, Kirby manages and writes at the Eye on the Paranormal blog where a wealth of articles about the paranormal have been published for the past five years. His program on the God Discussion network airs weekly. Be sure to visit GodDiscussion.net for a schedule of upcoming shows.
