Trinity Broadcasting Network board accused of diverting millions of dollars

 In October, Paul Crouch Jr. abruptly left Trinity Broadcasting Corporation.

The explanation given was vague.This may have been the reason why; his daughter, Brittany Koper, former TBN CFO, is accusing the world’s largest religious broadcaster of diverting over 50 million dollars from charitable assets to the company’s directors.

I have tried to convince many a Charismatic that this network is full of wolves. Yet I guess the only way they will ever wake up, is for the Lord to regenerate them. For scripture is plain that many shall come trying to deceive the elect and will not be able to do it.

5. The corruption of nature, during this Life, doth (n) remain in those that are regenerated: and although it be through Christ pardoned, and mortified, yet both it self, and the first motions thereof, are truely and properly (o) Sin.

Concerning Atheist

At this day… the earth sustains on her bosom many monster minds, minds which are not afraid to employ the seed of Deity deposited in human nature as a means of suppressing the name of God. Can anything be more detestable than this madness in man, who, finding God a hundred times both in his body and his soul, makes his excellence in this respect a pretext for denying that there is a God? He will not say that chance has made him different from the brutes; … but, substituting Nature as the architect of the universe, he suppresses the name of God.

The Shroud of Turin

Is the “shroud ofTurin” the burial cloth of Jesus Christ? Why all this controversy surrounding this object? What would it mean if this were the actual burial cloth of the crucified Jewish Messiah? What proof is there to support this tradition? Or is the burial shroud a hoax? What significance would there be in uncovering this relic as some kind of fraud? What can we glean from an examination of a topic such as this, one that is fueled by passionate, and some times heated, arguments on either side of the debate?

Having seen many documentaries on this particular shroud, I had been indecisive on whether it was authentic. However, after reading the article found on my dear friend’s blog (Jon Cardwell) I am convinced that the shroud is a fake. I have never heard anyone use scripture, to examine whether this shroud was authentic, until now.

God Breaks our Idols to Make us See the Vanity of Idolatry

Whatsoever we have over-loved, idolized, and leaned upon, God has from time to time broken it, and made us to see the vanity of it; so that we find the readiest course to be rid of our comforts is to set our hearts inordinately upon them.

God’s Chastisements Should Melt our Hearts

For a Christian to defy adversities is to “despise” chastisement. Instead of hardening himself to endure stoically, there should be a melting of the heart.
