the female correspondent raises the issue of such black church members of mega churches whose pastor is super rich. . .I do not think respondents are giving complex answers. . .I suggest that the main reason why members continue to contribute to the wealth of church leaders is because of the pastors power of persuasion. . .members are compelled to give more and more as they are continually programmed to give. Also, they stay loyal because they see it as a worthy investment--business leads, business contacts, meeting a wealthy spouse, possibly becoming a beneficiary of someone--members want to develop and maintain such an ideal environment. . .above all, members have hopes of also becoming equally or near equally rich as the church leader--they stay around to "learn the game" of the leader, i.e. his style in the pulpit; they have hopes that one day they will be rich and prosperous--they want to be a part of something"great" and "phenomenal" and loyalty has little to nothing to do with aspiring to holiness.

This sounds like Micheal Jackson. "Let the courts decide". After it is all said and done, it will be the courts that decide anyway.
Hopefully one way or another the truth as seen by the courts will be the final say.

Why would any poor person try supporting the rich life style of these PIMPS in the pulpit? These people like Rev Anthony Jinwright, Eddie Long, Creflo Dollar, Osteen, Jakes and the list goes on and on. Each one of these so called Pastors are trying to out do the other at the expense of the people that have the least to give!! All across America there are hudge sums of money leaving the communities straight into bank accounts of these blood suckers. They simply have taken on a God like personna! These so called christians who sit back and turn their head in the face of all this crap being thrown at them are just as sick as their Master's and I'm not talking about Jesus Christ!! Where are the Love offerings for the members? gifts, cars etc... The debt of every member could have been relieved and their living situations improved. Just think about it... It's not about helping any of them and they do not have the balls to ask any questions about the orgazation that is draining there financial life blood...

Not that I condone what Eddie Long did if he did anything. But how come a black pastor accused of improper sexual relations turns into a household name nationwide, but not one person can name any of the white Catholic priests accused of the same thing?
