FAIL: Joyce Meyer
I really prefer to be a positive-thinking person of love and faith and light — at least that’s how I like to be perceived. Only behind closed doors and with close friends and family do I allow my true cynical-self to come forth — and we’re all friends here, right?
And normally I wouldn’t spout off like this about a “preacher of the gospel” (and yes, I put those words in quotes for a reason). But this lady … this lady just flat-out pisses me off.
I know, I know. She’s an American Idol.
Well, go here and read what the Charismatic televangelist and bestselling author Joyce Meyer said on Thursday when she opened up about the death of her younger brother David as part of a message on the life of self-pity versus the life of diligence and faith.
And no, I don’t read the Christian Post. God forbid. Literally. But I do read the Internet Monk, and they keep tabs on what’s going on in and all things “trend-a-gelical”
P.S. I know this post probably belongs on my prayer blog because it has … well, religious content … but, whether we are believers or non-believers, I think we can all appreciate a horse’s ass for what it is. Besides, as the cartoon on the back of our Sunday morning service bulletin said (and said so well): “I can laugh at the problems in the church because I’m one of them.”
Sending you Love and Peace,
