Most Christians Hate Christian TV

Postmillennialism —  3 Comments

Christian Today — chief executive Pastor David Wright polled his channel’s more than 100,000 Facebook fans to find out what they think of Christian TV – and he was more than a little surprised by the results.

Pastor Wright was shocked to discover that the vast majority said they hate Christian TV and do not watch it. He said that 90% of the feedback to his poll was negative.

Comments in the response posts indicated several major turn-offs when it comes to Christian TV:

• Too much begging for money and fundraising telethons
• False prosperity teachers manipulating people for offerings
• Boring and a lack of quality programming
• Lack of integrity of Christian leaders being broadcast

Pastor Wright said he was “flabbergasted” by the responses.

    Seems to me that Futuristic Dispensationalism is to blame for most of the shallow and largely irrelevant messages that TV preachers are putting out there. If the Kingdom of God is ʻpostponedʻ until the millennial reign of Christ, how do they preach that life sustaining Kingdom provisions are available to all who believe today? Confusion about the meaning and timing of the Kingdom of God, when it will be fulfilled etc., is the result of putting form over substance and failing to see how Gods law applies to the future. Dispensationalists are unwittingly misplacing Kingdom (Messianic) promises and the effect is a void for substance! The void is then filled with fluff, where some mistake the fluff for the real thing. Its the same complaint we like to make about Christmas. Too much glitter and commercial fluff, and little or no real appreciation for the reason we have the holiday in the first place.

  2. I agree with those that you polled. I have listened for years about the offerings that needed to be placed with these ministries, only to find out that they tout about all that they have ie. several homes, expensive cars, expensive vacations. I understand the need for homes, cars, vacations, and planes. They go too far with what they have. I am not envious or jealous of them, but why isn’t everyone else prospering as they are? I understand that they do good for other nations, but exactly how many take care of the people here at home? There are some ministries that actually do help here in the US.
    I tithe even if I don’t have much to tithe on, but the Bible says, ” that God would rather have the sacrifice of praise then material things”. Now, I have found the written word to mean more to me than the spoken words of the pastors, priests, etc. If anyone changes the meaning of the Bible, it seems to me that they do a real good job of it.
    In this day and age, the church should be helping people instead of telling us that we serve a Big God and that we would should be asking Him for the biggest and best of everything. I think that is wrong, I for one would rather have enough to pay my bills, taxes, health bills, groceries, etc., and to be able to help those who are really in need here in the US and Israel. There are entirely too many homeless people due to the current establishment and todays circumstances. It is a crime, actually it is a SIN.
    I love my Father, and I talk with Him everyday and enjoy our conversations, He has not once convicted me in the area of tithing, etc. He knows my situation and how grave it is for us. He seems to be perfectly satisfied with I am able to send in and you know what?, He still blesses me in many ways. Now that is what I call a BIG GOD!!!!!!

    Phil 4:11; Heb 13:5 How true many Christians have spoken relating to Christian TV! Everyone has got some gimmick or other to raise mucho dinero! They live in homes that cost thousands of dollars and are never satisfied. The prosperity message they preach is a lie from the Devil himself. The Apostle Paul said: “Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have LEARNED in whatever state I am, to be content.” I am 83 years old, and, I have found that to be absolutely true! I am amazed how Jesus has gone before me and made provision!

    I write lessons for many pastors in Africa, now confined mostly to my little apartment at the end of my daughter’s and son-in-law’s barn, that they have provided me BY A MIRACLE. I cannot tell you in mere words how very grateful I am to our Lord Jesus Christ for the emails I receive from the pastors, especially in West Africa regarding how our lessons have fed them truth and holiness!

    I am ashamed of the gospel that is being preached today…especially about the Rapture, claiming that it can take place at any time … because Paul teaches differently. And the lack of teaching relating to the works we should be demonstrating “just as the Father SENT Jesus, so SEND I you” (John 20:21). Where is that anointing, “JUST LIKE?” Think about it, people of old in Jesus’ day wanted to see Jesus. If we would get ourselves out of the way, they could! This is my mesage, Children!

    I love the Sheep of His pasture. mom lori, in Africa they call me, mum.

    “Let your conduct be without covetousness (which is idolatry); be content such things as you have. For He Himself has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you,'” Hebrews 13:5.
