TBN EXPOSED! Hal Lindsey Refuses to Compromise to Stay on Air!
Here is the letter written by Hal Lindsey to Paul and Jan Crouch, of TBN....(way to go Hal!)
Hal Lindsey Leaving TBN
Refuses to Compromise to Stay on Air
January 1, 2006
Dear Paul and Jan,
Paul, Jr. relayed your message to me that you are both in agreement on the policy of nothing negative being said on TBN about Muslims. Hearing that you also warned John Haggee, Perry Stone, Jack VanImpe and others of this policy caused me to realize that your are not going to modify your position.
I love and respect you both and know your heart for evangelism of the Muslims. But I don't agree with your reasoning that warning about the dangers of "radical Islam" is a hindrance to the Gospel to all Muslims. The 'Radicals' are intimidating the moderate Muslims -- not to mention their terrible persecution of Arab and Palestinian Christians.
Jesus confronted false religion (which Islam is) by calling them "whitewashed tombstones", "Brood of vipers", and "sons of hell" in Matthew 23.
I am sure of my calling from the LORD. One important part of that calling is to sound a prophetic alarm to America and the world about the dangers of the false religion of Fundamental Islam. It is a "Watchman on the Wall" kind of calling.
In addition, the IIB is a news show from a Christian perspective. It is impossible to report the news without mentioning in a 'negative light' the radical Islamists who are wreaking murder and destruction on the Western world daily. It is truthfully reporting the most relevant news that made IIB one the most popular programs on TBN.
It is also absolutely unacceptable to me to require my script to be submitted for censorship each week and then to learn whether my program will be aired or not. I don't have much money and it costs me a lot out of pocket to produce each show. When it is rejected or pre-empted, it is a big loss for me.
So with regret and grief, I am not returning to TBN. I intend to pursue other avenues of ministry. I thank you for the years of association in the ministry. May God continue to bless you in your pursuit of evangelizing the world.
In Christ's grace,
What is TBN?
Thanks for posting this.
A psuedo Christian TV Network.
My respect for him just increased a notch. A very small notch.
I think that it stands for Trinity Broadcasting Network.
How Christian is truly is will become a matter of debate on here.
And if anyone knows about false religion, it's TBN.
I thought Barney Miller left the air in the 80's????
Barney Miller was one of my favorites.
"What is TBN?"
It's a television network, ostensibly Christian in nature, designed to make lots of money for its owners. Not so many folks watch it, though.
It's a cable "Christian" network with a lot of heretical "teachers" who seem to know little or nothing about solid Biblical theology.
I remember as a kid getting a good chuckle out of his real name, Harold Lipshitz.
I've never watched but have read descriptions of a lot of their shows... at best it's greeting card Christianity, not the real deal.
Full of hair, make-up and 'bling' that any two-bit rapper would envy. "Oh, Praise the Lord, my Mercedes is doing fine!" crap. I like Lindsay's show since it's not part of the insipid pattern and hope it becomes available elsewhere.
It's the reason my tv remote goes directly from 61 to 63.
A: A TV station that sells religion and makes the money lenders Jesus drove out of the temple, blush.......and it's the home of the pink-haired woman!
I guess Michael Corleone let him off the hook after all.
