99.9% of Christian Television is Worthless

What passes for Christian television is neither Christian nor good TV. What does ecclesia tv yield up to the general public when they fire up their flat screen Here’s what: Weeping pink-haired women with superlarge lip implants. Bizarre TV sets that look like Versace decorated them while tripping on a LSD. Prophetesses with dragon nails screaming in tongues and prophesying pretty generic, failsafe stuff to poor dupes who just drove six hours to “get a word” from God. Rasputin-like healers in white Nehru suits with bad comb-overs and an entourage of yes men that makes Kimora green at the gills. Weepy metrosexual and heretical thirtysomething male preachers whose hair is so spikey the TSA won’t let them board airplanes. 21st century snake oil salesmen making outrageous claims that if you give them a $100 check (or $1,000, or what the hell (or heck) $10,000) God will give you a yacht (or its equivalent). Give me a break folks do we really need fifteen different channels with this stuff(I did not say what I wanted to call it) 24 hours a day.

I don't watch those shows, but I have seen them in passing when changing the channel. It is a shame that people are drawn to that. I wonder what God thinks. I wonder what He would say. I thnk he would say, "Isn't My Word enough?"

Well, I agree with you for the most part though I do believe that there are some legitimate ones out there that are good. The one thing that I would say is that if the only thing that they did right is to read verses from the Bible, then they are not worthless as that one thing may just reach someone and enable them to make changes to better themselves.

I quit watching and listening to Christian TV and radio many years ago for the many reasons you discussed. It is amazing that anyone pays attention to these shows.
