TBN Founder Paul Crouch Sr Died
Crouch died on Saturday. After he died, I noticed a lot of my TBN related posts became some of the most-read ones.
I usually don’t like to say negative stuff after someone dies, but… I’m sorry if this is awful, but….
Part of me is glad he has passed on. I do NOT hate the guy or anything, but his justifications of money grubbing really bothered me, and he did it often on TBN.
Even up until Crouch Sr. died, he regularly hosted several of the TBN shows, such as “Behind the Scenes,” where he would mis-use Old Testament passages about Levitical tithing to con Gentile believers today out of their cash.
I will not miss that at all.
I am sorry for his family and what all.
But it bothered me seeing a Word of Faith guy sit there on TV trying to pry little old ladies out of their funds by using deceptive WOF teachings and abusing Old Testament passages.
Ever since Crouch Sr. died on Saturday, TBN has been devoting a lot of air time to his biography, life story… I understand airing at least several minutes to him, since he’s gone, but it’s always bothered me how TBN airs Crouch family stuff so often.
They are supposed to be airing material about Jesus Christ, not the Crouch family – yes, even in the midst of the founder dying.
