Steve Galiher Sentencing Put on Hold

Steve Galiher, former TBN host who was arrested for two felony counts of DUI after crashing a company-owned car into the back of an elderly man, injuring him and his wife, was a no-show on December 18 when he was supposed to be sentenced.  No word on why Galiher failed to show, however, some are speculating that it was because the district attorney was considering filing charges of manslaughter against Galiher’s since one of his crash victims died, some say, as a result of long-standing injuries sustained in the accident.

To get the latest updates on this case, please click here.  Please pray for Steve Galiher and all of TBN’s staff, that they would open their heart to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

      You may not like it, but God’s Word will be our first and final authority on what a pastor is to be. We hold pastors, leaders, teachers, bishops, deacons, etc. to the same standard that Scripture does. Knowing this, this is what God says:

      Titus 1:6-16:

      6 If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.
      7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not self-willed, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;
      8 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;
      9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.
      10 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, especially they of the circumcision:
      11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.
      12 One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are always liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.
      13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;
      14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
      15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
      16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

      And let us not forget this:

      1 Timothy 3:1-16:

      1 This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.
      2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behavior, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
      3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
      4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
      5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
      6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
      7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
      8 Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;
      9 Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.
      10 And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless.
      11 Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.
      12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
      13 For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.
      14 These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly:
      15 But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.
      16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

      Enough said.

    It must be great to be without sin. Would you remember the rest of us who do need a saviour.

      Oh, how greatly my sin pains me. Far from sinless, I feel like Paul in Romans, chapter 7 when he says, “Oh, wretched man that I am, who shall deliver me from the body of this death?” (verse 24) Of course, Paul goes on to answer that question in the next verse by saying, “I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord.” He is the only one that can deliver us from the body of this death, which is riddled with sin. Our spirits seek to serve God, but our flesh wars against the spirit and no matter how hard we try to be “holy,” sin is still present. Thank God that Romans 8:1 says, “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” I try to live a life of repentance and shudder at the sin found within me. I thank God that , through faith in Him, Jesus made a way for me to stand before the Father without condemnation. Without His provision, I would have no hope, because I lie not when I say that my own righteousness is as filthy rags. It is the righteousness of Jesus Christ that has afforded me the ability to stand before God justified. His and His alone.

      I assure you, Tam, I am not without sin.

    It would appear there’s a lack of understanding on ‘repentance’. A true born again Christian lives a life of continual repentance. We fall into sin, but, we do not STAY in that sin. The Bible forbids drinking, sexual immorality, lying, greed, etc. We should forsake all sin and follow Christ wholeheartedly. It is when an unregenerate who names the name of Christ has his/her sin exposed things get ‘sticky’. TBN is ran by apostates, the Crouches are out for their own sensual pleasures. How do I know this? Look what drives them…money. They are continually having pledge drives, living lavish lifestyles, showering themselves with the best things in life. I do not find this high style of living in God’s word; for example, the Apostles were beaten, jailed, martyred. Christ had no place to lay His head, He was mocked, hated, beaten and crucified. God’s word promises true followers persecution, affliction, troubles, hatred from the world. Does this sound anything like what the Crouches and their staff endure?

    If this man were truly a follower of Christ, he would distance himself from the apostate TBN network. We must pray for God to be merciful to him. There is no such thing as a ‘perfect’ Christian, however, there is such a thing as a phony Christian. That is why we must pray for their souls.
