As Oliver explains, “televangelism is still thriving in the US, with preachers like Robert Tilton using the “prosperity gospel” to squeeze out mind-boggling amounts of money from their impressionable audiences. One televangelist, Creflo Dollar, used a fundraiser to buy a $65 million jet, and many others – Kenneth Copeland, James Payne, Todd Coontz, Henry Fernandez – utilize this concept of “seed faith,” asking their devotees to make monetary investments for miracles”.
All this and much more, even to an extent of assuring the devotees that if they make donations from a particular credit card then its bill will be automatically lowered or will get fully cleared. Imagine??!!
Truth of the matter is that, the story of baba’s and their minting big money by way of seeking donations and charity is not just limited to India but spread wide across the countries. And we need to stop that, by having faith but not BLIND faith.
