    these preachers have gotten rich from selling the WORD of GOD,JESUS did not teach for us to get rich with material things,millions of us sent them money believing we were going to have wealth,millions of us now are broke ,homeless,no jobs,cant feed our kids,losing all we have,my mobile home is falling apart,two kids in the home,where are these millionair preachers,why dont they help the American people?the BIBLE says,,1john3;17,mark10;21,mark12;43-44,luke19;22,james,2;15-17 ,isaiah58;7 i rest my case!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    3000 believers of The Living Word Ministries believed that Bill Winston would bring them wealth through investing in his Covenant Bank project. All of them lost their money when the FDIC closed the Bank for bad management, lack of following safety & soundness practices and diminished capital. All of these were part of his promises to prosperity teachings which enriched his holdings but not the members.

    • Michael says:

      I was a Member at that time. I warned several people away from this as an Investment. I havd been watching Banks stockes for years and even Citi and Bank of America were having problems back then. Some people need to use common sense.

  3. Diane says:

    How can they preach the gospel if they cannot get there?

    • Sally says:

      They can fly coach, like everyone else. If it’s a problem, too bad, drive your car, etc…these people are corrupt.

  4. Every pastor who preaches the gospel is a Word of Faith minister. To believe God and His Word is life. Jesus is the only way, the only truth and the life. Rom 10:8, But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. You cannot even please God unless you have faith in Him and know that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. I AM PROUD TO BE A WORD OF FAITH PREACHER!!! I love God and humanity and I am honored that He called me to preach the Word of Faith. Much Love to all my haters!!! Pastor Larry Keith

    • In The Name Of GOD says:

      Enjoy Eternal Hell So-Called Preacher! You’re Not Taking Anything With You Except Your Soul…

    • kevin says:

      Most of the so called prosperity preachers have a special place in hell for themselves. It amazes me how much the bible talks about false teachers and false prophets but nobody can see themself in it. Wow, talk about blind.

  5. Yo Larry, people aren’t angry at televangelists because they preach the word of faith. We are angry cause ya’ll don’t live it. Matthew 23

  6. Good Evening, Jared!

    With all do respect sir, you do not even know me and yet you find it convenient to judge me as it relates to me living the gospel. This kind of tactic reminds of Jesus being wounded in the house of His friends. It is a privilege to know Him, a privilege to serve Him, and a privilege to make Him known! Much Love and Prayers in Christ!!!

    Grace & Peace!

    • Nana says:

      We don’t know you…but please tell us where you went to Bible school or college.
      If it was Rhema….then we already know you!

      • patrice says:

        Perhaps if Pastor Larry was willing to share his salary info, how much his house is worth, jewelry, expensive suits if any, then that would truly reveal his true personal ministry and we should then apologize to pastor Larry for our quick judgment as he had proven like the apostles lives a frugal lifestyle.

  7. Well Larry, you may be in the minority of televangelists who actually live it, but i wouldn’t be proud of your association if i were you.

  8. BETTY DOTSON says:

    Please continue to investigate these crooks that say they are men of God but live like kings now with other people’s money. People need to be careful of who they send money to. Men like Charles Stanley and Andrew Wommack are worthy in my opinion. The bible states that the love of money is evil! These men are certainly not living like Jesus told them to live. They fly in jets and some poor people don’t even have a mule to ride in???

    • kevin says:

      Right, but people also have to use their heads and pray for discernment. Any preacher that continually tries to bleed you of money, run for the nearest door.

  9. Isaac says:

    Hi Larry
    I am the upcoming word of faith pastor,i dont really understand what u r saying about man of God.If you are better than those preachers u can stone them,b coz if you r good or God’s send man y do u criticize others.First check the beam in your eyes than the mute in other peoples eyes.Your fight is against the word of God not materials and if you fight the Holy spirit then u r cursed forever according to the bible.If they are evil God would have destroyed them long time ago.
    Jesus said if they teach my Gospel then they are ours,if they are evil,every evil that a man do lives after him.

    Leave man of God alone,or come with your own Gospel.

  10. kevin says:

    First off, anyone who is gullible enough to send any of these parasites a dime are just plain ignorant. Mike Murdock, Benny Hinn, Creflo Dollar, and many more are not men of God. Their God is their money and they are 100% false prophets. Read your bible and get an understanding of what you are reading.

    • after following all the above comments against these men of God i have found that for many it is OK for sinful people to have riches but when it comes to men of God to have riches to many it sounds not OK. Remember God says “silver and Gold are his” so do you think God does not want his beloved(those called by his name) ones to enjoy his riches also remember men of God are sons of God,is it not worthy for sons to inherit of their fathers?

      • i guess men of God are only the ones who stand behind the pulpit. the regular joe schmoes don’t count. Personally, i could care less if anyone is rich, but the so-called men of God you are referring to are getting rich off of swindling widow’s. I don’t know of any translation that justifies that

    • Abraham says:

      Any script references of where one must read??. any ideas perhaps. Why should men of God suffer, why should they not live good lives, to please who. I dont care what but jesus was not suffering. therefore they shouldnt, an if is about supporting them financially we’ll never stop because is God’s agenda they are pushing.

      • Amos R. Pudi says:

        What was Jesus mission on this earth? Did Jesus come to gather silvers, gold, and money or he came to save mankind? All these so called men of God you are pleading for, how many miracles, signs, and wonders are they performing today? Poor people are everywhere in the street, blind people are everywhere that need to regain their sight. The cripples are everywhere that wants to walk, but these days men of God, all they are capable of doing is to ask people to sow seed. How many can lay hands on the sick to get heal?

  11. let us not go by sight but rather by faith.

  12. Abraham says:

    all this anger an comments to pastors. “jesus had money a lot of it an even had a treasure to look after. you dont have a treasure for pennies, why should men an woman of God suffer, to please who; who must own private jets, mansion’s an good clothing if not them. jealous

  13. Iris says:

    Not one of Jesus’ 12 deciples were rich – look at their lives – that would give you a perfect example of how to live. All of them had hardships, Jesus didn’t wave his magic wand and bring them riches – instead they all suffered preaching the word of God.

  14. SAMSON BABAYAN says:

    JESUS HAD NO PLACE TO LAY HIS HEAD BECAUSE IN ORDER THAT WE RECEIVE WEALTH FOR HIS SACRIFICES.2ND CORINTHIANS 8:9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.THAT IS WHY JESUS HAD TO DIE(BLOOD SACRIFICE).JESUS TOOK ON POVERTY VOLUNTARILY IN OUR PLACE SO THAT WE MIGHT RECEIVE RICHES.

  15. Amy says:

    I don’t think having a private jet is a problem if they really need it. If you are a pastor with a home church, then I really don’t see the need.

    In the case of Joyce Meyer, she travels from place to place and does conventions so it makes sense for her. I stopped listening to Creflo Dollar because of this, his obsessive need to speak in tongues without an interpreter and his arrest for battery to his child.

  16. Gary says:

    Tithing is a principal taught in the bible true. This tithing does not necessarily need to pass through the hands of any one preacher as if you are ignorant of what God wants you to do with your riches however meager or abundant.The principal of tithing does not just relate to monetary riches it refers to all you have,as in knowledge…all your possessions including time.Some may not agree but taxes go to feed and clothe and house the poor if you purpose in your heart that what you pay goes for these things then you’re tithing already in a way, at a much higher percent in most cases than 10%. To illustrate taxes as a tithe say a friend or acquaintance says they need $100 to pay bills and you give them the money and they buy drugs with it. The spirit of your gift or tithe was to pay bills regardless of what they actually do with it God sees your heart and recognizes your tithe as it was intended so if I purpose in my heart that taxes go to the biblical principal of feeding, clothing and housing the poor God will see it as such.If my local pastor’s only income is tithing from the congregation then yes tithing to a pastor is okay. Fact is if my tithing goes to purposes other than I intend it for it’s on the receiver of the tithe not me.

  17. Daniel D says:

    prosperity isn’t just money. Your life can be prosperous without money. God don’t need our money. But we need to give. But I don’t expect to be a millionaire. I Just need to be found in Jesus. That’s all the prosperity I need.

  18. Elizabeth J Couture says:

    Remember JUDAS ISCARIOT who complained about the “wasted” VALUABLE PERFUME that could have been sold to meet needs? Remember the WEALTH the Jews ACCUMULATED before leaving Egypt?
    As such a time as these, let us bring TRUTH, not CONDEMNATION. Airplanes get the GOSPEL everywhere and MONEY PAYS FOR IT. Take away their airplanes and they lose 50% of their ministry. How many lives are you impacting? Money isn’t the problem. DOUBT, FEAR and DISBELIEF are. Don’t be like JUDAS! GOD is our HEAVENLY FATHER. He owns everything and He wants to bless HIS CHILDREN like He did Abraham, Lot, Joseph, and many others. “You bless me and you will be blessed. You curse me and you will be cursed!” FAITH is the victory that overcomes the world! Without FAITH it is impossible to please God! FAITH is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Have FAITH in God!

  19. Patrice says:

    Has anyone heard of jentezen Franklin preacher from Georgie and California. His preaching is astounding and even talks about sin but he brags of friendship with Osteen, Cerullo and other questionable televangelist. I know he has a plane but sure hope he does not have a multi million dollar home like Joyce Meyer, Creflo, Hinn and the others mentioned. Franklin comes across as truly a selfless man of God. But I can find no background info on him other than that he comes from a preacher family.

    • Wouldn’t you agree that if any of the millionaire preachers actually came across as NOT being a selfless man of God, they wouldn’t be making millions off the backs of poor. That’s why they call it wolves in sheep’s clothing – because of how they appear.

      • Patrice says:

        I’m sorry but I don’t follow what you’re saying.

        • Wolves in sheep’s clothing (false teachers) appear like men of God. If they didn’t appear like men of God, they wouldn’t be raking in their millions. I don’t know anything about the Jentezen guy, but if he claims to be a man of God, and yet is raking in millions off the backs of widows than what he says and what he does contradict each other. Like i said. i don’t know anything about him so i don’t know if he’s rich or even poor.

          • Patrice says:

            Thank you for your prompt reply. Perhaps you could go on and check him out at your convenience. I definitely agree with you re men in sheep’s clothing which is why I pray for discernment continually.

  20. Glenn Pierce says:

    Acts 2:44-47 is the example every church should follow: ‘every believer sold their goods & gave to any that had need’. To all you mega rich pastors: You can’t take all that stuff to heaven! Sell it-give it away & store up treasures in heaven.

    -Jesus ????

  21. Romil says:

    Mr. Jared,
    It is not at all our business to judge a man of God, whether He has a jet plane or bicycle. You and I are not doing 10% of what they are doing, transforming live s and saving soul for eternity. Man looks at outer appearance but God looks at heart. Don’t judge, its not your job.


    • i disagree. it is our job to call out these greedy, mammon loving bums out. If Jesus said, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven, then how can a grotesquely rich pastor lead people to the kingdom of heaven?

      • Romil says:

        When Jesus said It is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God , He meant about the man’s priority about his wealth. You also can have jet plane and mansion if you don’t allow it to your head. Think about Heaven roads are made up of Gold and plarinum. Does God become so poor that other people of the world who don’t know Him as God , they all can have Jet planes and mansions.Why not His own children ? Be careful when you speak about anointed men or women of God. I again restate don’t judge them its not your job. Thanks

        • Elizabeth J Couture says:

          Romil, thank-you. I am very familiar with some of the people mentioned above. They started with nothing, they dedicated their entire lives to God, they stood on His Word, and God blessed them according to His principles of sowing and reaping. They have a strong faith and a deep love for God. Their “private jets” are strictly for the ministry, impacting millions of people spiritually and benevolently.
          Poverty isn’t a money problem. It is a heart issue. You can love money and have none, or not love it and have much.
          “The devil seeks to steal, kill and destroy. I have come that you might have life and have it to the full (more ABUNDANTLY)”…Jesus

        • There’s a complete difference between raking in millions by selling services/goods in comparison to acquiring obscene luxuries off of widow’s backs using scripture that intended to take care of “ONE ANOTHER’S NEEDS“. But you don’t see that because of the blinders over your eyes. All you can say is, ‘don’t touch God’s anointed… don’t judge…we can’t see their heart’, etc. Your defense is that the jet is for ministry, the mansion is honorable, and the Bugatti is God’s blessing as widow’s and children go without. Sure, you can have a plane and not be defiled in your heart; but the bible clearly states the purpose of our giving and how it is to be allocated. The proportion of distribution is a clear violation of scripture. Regardless of scripture saying it’s wrong, the world even knows it’s wrong. The only ones who don’t see the error are people like you which makes you just as guilty in your compliance.

          • Romil says:

            I think you are still living in a category called doubters , unbelief , religious ,
            self centered mentality.

            I belong to church where my pastor believes in naturally Supernatural.

            In our church we experience Glory cloud, golden dust falling on church members. Demons cast out , a man healed from Cancer. mute speaks, deaf hears , blind eyes opened.

            Becoz Jesus doesn’t belong to one group of so called religious people. Jesus honors faith and faith honors jesus.
            Where there is Jesus there is abundance.

            According to you , widows and orphans goes without a vehicle and gives offering to them. Its all upto them. Jesus is their Savior , provider ,
            they receive more abundantly. Its a principle of sowing and reaping. Sow into good soil.

            Pastors and preachers can’t be their saviour.

          • Wow! You respond like one who has already lost this debate. First, you bring my character into this discussion, then you setup a straw-man and start talking about miracles. Your deflections only validate my point of view. Here’s the definition of a straw man argument if you don’t know

            To address the one point you (kind-of) made on topic – I never said that widow’s wouldn’t be blessed for sacrificing. but what else would someone do who is defeated in a debate besides put words in my mouth so they can continue to deflect.

            I will repeat my previous statement in the other comment – “the bible clearly states the purpose of our giving and how it is to be allocated. The proportion of distribution is a clear violation of scripture.”

  22. Denise J says:

    I truly believe we have lost sight of God’s “true” purpose. Matthew 28:19-20: Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
    Where were these guy when Katrina hit? The WTC crash? The Tsunami in Japan? The tornado in Oklahoma? The earthquake in Haiti, Japan or Nepal? Why aren’t they using these “ministry’ jets for ministry? I don’t see them caring food or medical supplies or even bibles anywhere not even to those in need in this country, BUT they have access for their personal use. God is not pleased because we are not the light He intended us to be!

    • Patrice says:

      Very good point…never hear of that. And I’m sure if they did we’d hear about it.

    • Elizabeth J Couture says:

      They were there. The media doesn’t capture every organization that helps out. I know that some gave $ multi-millions to various aids, plus food, supplies, and man-power. That is a big part of their ministries, and that’s what their jets are used for: spreading the Gospel in Word and deed. They are not used for personal use. They belong to the ministries.

  23. Denise J says:

    They are called “private” for a reason. People in their own congregations are struggling on a daily basis. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. (Luke 12:48. Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus says the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?(Eze. 34:2)

  24. Amos R. Pudi says:

    What was Jesus mission on earth? Did Jesus come to gather riches, or he came to save mankind? Jesus heal the sick, make the lean to walk, and make the blind to see. Every man of God that is mention in the Bible, had a special gift that was given by God and they perform their earthly duties. But today all we can see from man of God is to ask the poor to sow seed into their ministries so they can own private jets! How many of them today that are healing the sick, the blind, and the cripple? Jesus said go into the world so that they can know you are my follower.

    • Elizabeth J Couture says:

      Father, forgive those who judge, criticize and condemn others who have dedicated their entire lives to You, proclaiming Your good news. They certainly don’t know their hearts, and they appear to be jealous of their success and wealth.
      If only they would grasp how much You love them, and how much You want to bless them too!
      Forgive them, for they know not what they do, and they will be judged accordingly.

      • …. and forgive those with ignorance who allow the vipers and wolves in sheep’s clothing to continue fleece the sheep. Please turn the tables over on these thieves. Please have mercy on those who are ignorant of the wolves and continue to defend them. For they know not what they do.
        – Amen

  25. Delphina Meredith says:

    Jesus had NO WHERE TO LAY HIS HEAD because they were trying to kill Him!! and He had to keep moving from place to place! you guys making comments and don’t even know how to interpret the Bible…so one has NOTHING to do with the other…EVERY MAN and WOWAN God used was BLESSED (RICH) yes RICH!!!! READ YOUR BIBLE!! if it was a sin why would he want them to commit sin buy blessing them with riches!!! THE DEVIL IS THE ONE WHO WANTS YOU BROKE AND BUSTED! HE COMES TO STEAL KILL AND DESTROY!! God comes to give us LIFE and LIFE more abundantly. to give a a HOPE and a future..can’t have hope and a future! If you’re broke and busted there’s no hope and you certainly can’t plan for the future! God said my people will perish for lack of knowledge…you are what He calls blind and deaf! but he also says it’s useless trying to teach a FOOL! So with that , get your bible ask God for understanding through His Holy Spirit, if your not filled with the Holy Spirit pray you are…only then will the TRUTH be revealed!! He wants HIS people who are called by His name to be RICH! why so that we can be a blessing to other’s how broke Christians suppose to help other broke Christians..He said to Take care of the widows and children..can’t do that on foodstamps!! Praying that all nay SAYER’S ARE MADE FOOTSTOOLS!!

  26. Delphina Meredith says:

    OH and the Bible is VERY clear on TITHING 10%…he’s also very clear that if you don’t you are robbing HIM not the church…and people want to get MAD because the preacher’s in force what the word of GOD already says!! people have a problem with it because the think it their money and worried about what’s going to be done with it ect. that is not your CONCERN…your concern is to be obedient to His word. he will expose the church is they are missing using it…trust and belive that and it’s usually small churches that are miss using funds, (Jesus preached to multitudes) so I’m leary of small churches (why isn’t God increasing your congregation?)But not all are called to preach to multitudes so I appreciate the church period big or small. The other reason people have a problem with preachers asking them to tithe is because they think well if I give this to the church the I can’t buy that purse of those shoes or new Nike’s or how they blame it on I have to pay bills…not trusting that God will reward them… GIVE and you shall RECEIVE!! and you reap what you sow (he’s talking about money) you sow sparing you will reap sparingly! He’s He will open the windows of Heaven and pour down blessing you can not contain (just buried In blessing) Where your treasure is so is your heart and He know’s money has a strong hold on a lot of people and that is why He ask us to tithe, so that money isn’t a strong hold..but don’t give to get…give because GOD said SO!
