Okay... I'll admit it...
I do not watch long but just enough to look around at the folks there. They appear normal, intelligent, decent folk. Why do they keep on going and listening and sending in money and buying their books.... Please somebody tell me why? why? why?
I do not want folks to answer me with theological answers or to write off these folks, I just want to know why they go, why they love these strangoids from a distant galaxy... I don't want the pat answers about sin and people loving entertainment and how this makes them feel good about themselves... I know all that and still I do not think these things answer my question... Why?
So do an old man a favor and tell him what is going on with this American love affair with the religious weirdos of the TV of the air... and when you tell me this, I will know why people even in my own congregation talk about them and how wonderful they are... Guess it must be a real let down to listen to little ole me talk about Jesus every Sunday... Oh, well, now you know... there is a weird side of me that is fascinated with the question why so many folks like these spiritual gurus of a distorted Christianity? Please... why?
