Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) is one of the biggest religious television networks in the world. No, correction…it is the biggest religious television network in the world. Because of its vast reach, it bears the responsibility of spreading the Word of Faith (WOF) prosperity heresy throughout the world and has done much harm in the body of Christ. That is why I find it important to report this news story.
TBN gladly takes the money of the poor and sick while promising them unrealistic health, wealth, and prosperity. This is a bill of goods that their theology will never be able to deliver because it is not founded upon the gospel of Jesus Christ. Because of the deception that permeates the TBN’s airwaves, spiritual darkness has grown at an exponential rate. Therefore, it is important to expose their error in any way possible in the hopes that their viewers will open their eyes and see truth. No, I don’t expect a whole-scale awakening, but someone somewhere will listen.
With that said, TBN was sued by a former employee who accused Paul Crouch, Jr. of sexual harassment. According to this news report, TBN settled the lawsuit for an undisclosed amount. In my experience, where there’s smoke there’s fire. You don’t normally settle a lawsuit unless there’s a reason to settle it. That reason could be that a.) they’re guilty and the plaintiff can easily prove their case, or b.) they want to avoid the publicity. Given that this is the second lawsuit of a sexual nature to hit TBN, maybe there’s something to the charges.
Like I said, where there’s smoke there’s fire.
