modern day Elmer Gantrys!


I have a question: why is it that as you surf the net or turn on the telly you find all these “ministries” and each one of them has some smiling joker and his wife or her husband if it is a lady “evangelist” with the name of the smiling person or persons either around the photo like some kind of techno-halo or under the photo! Naive me would have thought that with all the “praise” lingo and the high tech “worship” aids the Name of Jesus would appear somewhere in the packaging! But no I am mistaken. And lastly since most of these good ole boy “ministries” feature mostly white male gurus why do they look either anemic or obese and why do the women “who stand by their man” have enough hair to make a llama jealous! Why is it always “my Jesus” rather than Our Lord? It is a good thing a free market capitalist was not around at the time of the Crucifixion and the Resurrection becuase Golgotha would be a theme park and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher would be a “Christian” restaurant with all you can eat specials on Friday nights!
