    Same reason they made money from indulgences. Lies are cheap, easy, profitable, and addictive to those who believe in them.

      Maybe because they're, you know, donations?

        Except that televangelists operate like businessmen, not pastors. They don't just ask for donations, they constantly shill their products to their audience.

        Buying buckets of doomsday slop is only called a "donation" on the show for legal reasons.

          How is a pastor "supposed" to operate, pray tell?

            traditional pastors don't sell book deals and doomsday prep buckets to their congregation, their salary comes from donations, tithes.
            Most pastors don't make millions of dollars and have a private jet.
            Enriching yourself from the Church goes against every teaching of Jesus, and was one of the main critiques of the Catholic Church made by Protestants.
            If you're Christian and don't know this there's something seriously wrong with your church.

            That's what you're objecting to

            >and have a private jet.
            If you do a lot of travel a private plane makes sense. Why is it always an objection to a jet? Do you want them to use something with a propeller?

            Why don't you sell your car and just take the bus everywhere? It would be wildly inefficient, right? For someone who has to do a very large amount of long-distance travel, it's the same.

            Post tax returns anon. Show us how much you make vs. how much you donate.

            Fly coach. Hell, fly first class.
            It's a sticking point because it's a status symbol for millionaires.

            Clearly you've never had job duties that involved a very large amount of very long distance travel. Look at his travel schedule and tell me, specifically, how he could do that using commercial flights - and, if so, whether that would actually save money.

            >It's a sticking point because it's a status symbol for millionaires.
            You think having a car isn't a status symbol in some places? Why do you have one instead of taking the bus everywhere?
            Is it because its specific departure times and places would be massively incompatible with your schedule and needs? If so then you understand why people need their own flights sometimes. It's the same reason you need your own car, just with much longer distances.

            Most evangelicals believe the rapture will occur before the tribulations, so they don't need buckets of slop to survive.
            However Bakker is still a popular televangelist who has been in business since the 80's and has a large audience.

        You mean as Semites always have, they prey on the gullible and the cognitively incapable.

            They specialize in baiting into hazard and lending at exorbitant rates in order to seize collateral is one form of it.

    They shouldn’t. A preacher should have a salary not to exceed a middle class life in his area. Everything above that which the church gets from tithes should go to improving the church, paying its staff reasonable wages, never to exceed the same middle class level as the preacher. Everything left over from that should go to charity. Televangelists like Kenneth Copeland will go to hell if they don’t repent. Their standard as teachers is much higher than the average person’s and they’ll pay for leading people astray in the next life. In this life, I fully promote the idea that he should be torn down and returned to rags, if possible. No one should give him a cent and the people giving him anything should be pulled away from it.

    because the modern christian church is perverse and treats the Christ like a prostitute.

    because as much as they want to deny it, they still have significant influence in politics pretty much allowing them to get away with it

    Because we as a nation have largely blinded ourselves to the fact that we're getting grifted, lied to, and robbed from every direction. If you're already getting tricked on one front, youve probably already drink the Kool aid and getting robbed by the church too isn't anything new.
