Welcome to the Grand Delusion
Come on in, get your salvation
Leave your check in the slot before you go!

The stage is set, the rock band's playin'
Raise your hands and start the swayin'
You're wishing secretly that you were me!

You hear me on christian radio
I'm on TV, in magazines
You see my photograph, it's how your life should be
Yes, come and join me in my fantasy!

So if you think your life's an abomination
'Cause you saw me on "Today"
Just remember that, cash is my solution
Hey, thanks for sending it my way!

So if you think your life's an abomination
Because you heard I've got a maid
Just remember that, it's nunya business
'Cause you and I are not the same!
   We're not the same! (losers)    


America's a free speech nation
Join me in my blind ambition
Help me buy my brand new motorcar! (lookin' at a Benz)
Someday soon you'll stop to ponder
Why you gave in to this blunder
I made the grade and still you wonder
Why you were such fools! (but hey, it's all good)

Oh, and uh... Praise the Lord!
all you Joel Osteen fans - lighten up!

I wonder if some people would still buy it even if you sell it that obvious.
Maybe if you add some more "special effects".

A perfect description of charming manipulators, as also stated in my work, <a href-"[link]">Oh Villainy! :nod:

When will people ever learn
to discern,
between what is Truth, and what are lies?
Sadly, rather too many sheep following crooked shepherds -
people that may, because of deception, one day burn... :shrug:

Lord, have mercy upon us all... :pray:

Yes, please! :iconbeggingplz:

How many times have I seen impoverished pensioners, many of them frail and/or disabled, giving their last two cents to such individuals? :ohmygod:

And all because these villainous, pompous fakers preach a gospel of health, wealth and happiness, if only you will follow Jesus! :facepalm:

Nevertheless, Paul had some great wit, when it came to such 'grand delusions', as stated in Philippians 1:17:

17 The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains. 18 But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice.

Paul's way of seeing this type of showmanship: Let the donkeys bray! Because, in the end, these asses are promoting Jesus - whether they like it, or not! ;)

Also, if you're smart, you'll chew on the meaty goespel, savouring every bite - while spitting out the bones and offal of falsehood! Just be sure to have a good-sized bucket handy, for the latter! :nod: You'll need it! ;)

Yes my grandma was one of them. Very poor lived in the projects gave her tithe to Ernest Angely. Severe diabetic she went to him for healing got off her insulin then went into a diabetic coma and almost died. All they had to say was that she didn't have enough faith. What really makes this story sad is that she believed it and stayed loyal to that fraud till the day she died.

:icongo-on-plz: An all-too-familiar tale, unfortunately: These false prophets brainwash their poor but faithful public into believing that Jesus is now the poor man's personal genie - whatever you wish for, is genie Jesus' command! :O_o: Only then, when their victims DON'T heal, DON'T become fabulously wealthy (like them), or marriages fall apart; then they (the victims) are lacking faith! :ohmygod: It just never gets old! :facepalm:

Even sadder is the fact that, just like Grandma, these brainwashed victims continue to believe, tithe, even give their most prized possessions - post sale, post funeral - to these creeps! :no:

It's disgusting, really! :icondoublefacepalmplz:

All very sad, to say the least... :facepalm:

But do these big-name 'ministers' care? Of course not! There are always plenty more, to replace the ones who have gone! And, besides, that poor dear's last two cents sure helped, to pay off that new Citation jet! :evillaugh:

Lord, have mercy on us all... :facepalm:
