    "Biblical prosperity is not about wealth building. This is a poor representation of the Kingdom of God,” the petition states
    That is correct.  It is a poor representation of the Kingdom of God.  But the show isn't about the Kingdom of God, it's about the Kingdom of these Megapreachers who claim to be preaching the Kingdom of God.

    Like the fellow said, "By Their Fruits Shall You Know Them."  These preachers are supposed to be Bearing Witness to Christ; that's what they say they're doing.  Well, their lifestyle and their luxuries are a part of that Witness, and people judge them -- and the Church, and Christ -- on the basis of that Witness.

    And if they think they can preach the Gospel of Christ while their actions preach the Gospel of Robin Leach, then they ain't doin' Baby Jesus any favors.
