Who Is Your Favorite Christian TV Evangelist?

Maybe you don't watch religious programs on TV, maybe you just attend church or maybe both? I personally like Pat Robertson, John Hagee and occasionally I have enjoyed Joel Osteen and even Sid Roth. Who do you like and why?

I've no favorites, tending to favor more their individual messages rather than the personalities. I like everyone you'd mentioned, but am not too familiar with Sid Roth. Would like to add TD Jakes to your list as well. By the way, I don't think "evangelist" is the right term for them. Most of them are pastors-teachers, except Robertson and Roth. Evangelism's the forte of folks such as Cerullo, the Grahams, Popoff, Stewart, etc.

Evangelist can be defined as a preachor of the Christian Gospel, they all fit into that category. Sid Roth has this half hr show where people go on to talk about miracles and other supernatural things that no other christian shows care to touch. ( he's a messianic jew )

I know the world calls them all Christian TV evangelists, but strictly speaking, and if we are to apply the 5-fold ministry gifts discussed in Ephesians and elsewhere, these are differentiated. Having said that, all Christians are to be "evangelists", in the general understanding of the term, however, whether on TV or not. I'd also seen part of 1 of Roth's shows, but didn't have enough info to comment on his ministry. Thanks for the confirmation.

I never watch TV Evangelists because they are all tarred with the same brush. (they are con-artists.) If you like to listen to their patter, by all means do it, but stop at Contributing. They are all millionaires anyway.

There probably are certain shows like that, but the ones I contribute to actually go overseas helping others w/disaster relief, feeding children etc. Besides, even your local church can have someone who steals money..We can't use that as an excuse to not tithe..It is in GODS hands, and he will deal with those who do not honor him.

John Hagee and Joel Osteen I like very well. Pat Robertson is ok in a pinch LOL and I never heard Sid Roth. I sometimes just put the Daystar channel on while I am cleaning house and hear some but I just can't remember their names.

You can look at "Its Supernatural" with Sid Roth TV show on youtube to see who he is..Hes a messianic jew with a very interesting show and topics of supernatural events that happen to guests on his show..
