  • I can't stand to watch any of them.+5
  • I'd narrow it down to uh.. ALL of them.
  • I have no faith in any of them, they seem to promote God for money and to me that makes it phoney.
  • With the exception of Joel Osteen, so far all those that I've seen on television are money hungry rascals.
  • What I can't believe is that there are people out there who take TV Evangelists seriously, who are actually followers. I can't figure out how someone could fall for them!
  • At this point, do fine distinctions really matter?
  • I think they are all despicable, disgusting excuses for human beings. The one I think is the absolute worst of all the current ones, though, is Jan Crouch. Here's an appeal for "your little stash of grocery money."
  • George W Bush
  • They're all full of it but some are more so than others. Pat Robertson makes me nauseous. I was listening to Bill Moyer talking about this subject on PBS and he had some really scathing things to say about Robertson's absurd statements. "Let's go back to 9/11 four years ago. The ruins were still smoldering when the reverends Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell went on television to proclaim that the terrorist attacks were God's punishment of a corrupted America.

  • I don't think they are all phonies. It's unfair to lump them all together. I'm from Oklahoma and I personally knew Kenneth Hagin Sr. He was an extraordinary man of God. His wife Oretha is a beautiful spiritual woman. Hilton Sutton is also a very kind, humble, and loving man of God. All TV evangelists are not created equal. If I had to choose one that I feel has exploited the word of God in the name of greed, it would be Benny Hinn!
  • Jimmy Swaggert.
  • Like most of the answers, I too, agree that they are all very corrupt. However, I think that the all time worst were Jim and Tammy Faye Baker and their PTL Club network and their Heritage U.S.A. Theme Park. In the early 80's contributions were in excess of $1,000,000 a week, his and hers annual salary were $200,000 each and he awarded themselves over $4,000,000 in bonuses and that didn't include all of their luxurious assets. And who paid for all of this . . . the viewers that sent them money.
  • george bush
  • isnt it strange how they all say "send your money to jeeesus".(but jesus has no mailbox) "send your money to jesus c/o(insert name here)and i will personally deliver it to him" does anyone else remember oral roberts who said a 100'tall jesus came to him in a dream and told him to collect 1 million dollars and if he did not the lord would call him home? he didnt raise the money and he's still here
  • I think Benny Hinn and his crisp white suit, knocking people on the floor, just kills me. Do people really beleive that if he just waves his hand near them, that they will fall to the floor. Yes people really do believe this...I feel sorry for them.
  • Creflo Dollar <--- the answer is in his name...LOL Mike Murdock...are you kidding me?...he claims God told him to have 300 people send him $500.00 for blessings...what?...lol It is a sad shape this world is in when idiots send their money to these TV freaks and expect anything other than a smaller balance in their chacking acct. John 14:6 says that no man can come to the Father except through Jesus Christ...it doesn't say a thing about Creflo or any of his other TV freaks. These poeple give Christians a bad rep.! -Buddy
  • THe only one that I can't think of that was not in it for the money was Billy Graham, He only received an average salary, and never had access to the money in his ministry, all the others that I have seen, should be sending me money.
  • I don't know Frank. I really don't stay up with that. I am a pastor, but I don't watch many of the television preachers except some old venerable ones that have been around since Noah.
  • There are too many to name. Anyone that I watch long enough shows his or her hypocrisy. I'd like to see one who has a large income but who drives an old car, and wears old suits. Will it happen in my lifetime?
  • Kenneth Copeland, or however you spell it. My stepfather works for him and he recently asked the company to pray, to thank God, for his fourth private jet. And yet on TV, he praises the virtue of poverty. Right.
  • I think it is wrong to judge unless someone is convicted. Rumours are one thing and it may be that where there is smoke, there is fire, but I would not want to name anyone as being corrupt, because I simply don't know. If I was to say that this person was, I might be maligning someone who is not, in fact corrupt. Australia is fairly strict on monitoring corruption amongst high profile evangelists. The media has it all against one in particular, but, despite all their "insiders" and relentless attempts to publicly judge him, no one has been able to find any irregularities in his or his church's accounts. We have only had one scandal in recent times, and that appears to be due to mental instability rather than corruption. The issue was dealt with quickly by the Australian government, and his family has reimbursed money collected for his health needs) but no charges have been laid, because of the clear psychiatric problems of the pastor involved.
  • Only the ones who are talking...
  • All of them?
  • Peter Popoff. He is the king of the deceivers using television. My 2 cents. http://www.peterpopoff.org/pp.html
  • &quot;I could ask for $100, I could ask for $500, but I just like a thousand" Robert Tilson
  • Who Tele Tubbies? Oh! Tele Evengelists. Sorry I can't tell the difference.
  • As far as I am concerned, pretty much everyone of them.
  • The only evangelist on tv that I've ever liked was Billy Graham. I do not like Benny Hinn. I think he's a crock and a phony. I've seen him when flipping the tv station.
  • I don't believe anyone who preaches on television is honest and sincere.
  • Robert Tilton aka Brother Bob <-- I sent him money!
  • I'm not sure about the phoniest one but the greediest has to be Mike Murdock. From the time his program starts to the time it ends, he preaches about and asks for money. I wrote him an email asking why he finds it necessary that the "money seed" needs to be sent to his ministry and not somewhere else. I never received a reply. Don't get me wrong, there are some good televangelists but I would rather pick my own places to give my money. Preferably to the local church.
  • Mike Murdock or as we call him the $1000 man. And the one selling "manna".
