    Agree with that.
    And Christian websites is the place that we see them most...but it happens everywhere.

    Frankly, the only way we can NOT do this, is to never say a word except shallow, often insincere words that mimic encouragement.

    Who wants to see "christians" slandering and attacking anointed men of God more than satan and demons?? Those that cannot resist should find something else to do!!

    2 Corinthians 11:1Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me. 2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. 3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

    1 Timothy 4:1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

    Luke 6:26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.

    1 John 4:1Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

    2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

    1 John 4:2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. 4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

    This is why we should be praying for our christian leaders in the media because you know the devil will target them to lead them astray and by doing so, lead others astray too.

    Any saved believer that testifies to feeling what they believe was the Holy Spirit coming down on them apart from salvation are being led astray, because the Holy Spirit does not need to come down on any saved believer when He was already in them as promised since they had come to & believed in Jesus Christ at their salvation at the calling of the gospel.

    To believe that every spirit to be the Holy Spirit that comes over that believer after having received the Lord Jesus Christ at their salvation, then there is no way any saved believer can test the spirits because they are not listening to the apostle John's warning not to believe every spirit but test them.

    You cannot receive the Holy Spirit apart from salvation when there is no need for you when He dwells in you forever since your salvation.

    As no lie can be of the truth, any christian leader in the media giving a message as given by that phenomenon, you have to discern with Him, especially when that message is no different from any other message given by that christian leader in the media.

    No one needs the Holy Spirit coming down on them to speak of the signs when we have His written words in the KJV and our eyeballs with the Holy Spirit in us to help us to see the signs around us that He is coming soon as the Bridegroom.

    If that christian leader is advertising books to sell to his many viewers, then he may just be using that as a new hype to sell his books for the love of money, especially if he has always been doing that in the course of his ministry.

    ………. and yet, you even did that very same thing from your first post here in this thread. See, we really can't criticize others without actually criticizing them.

    I think about the closest we can come is to quote another's words, and ask them if THEY want to say that. And, even then, we are criticizing them by implying we don't approve of their thinking or speech.
    Maybe some people think they are totally objective in this, but I know I sure am not.

    But, don't you see? Even there, you are imposing YOUR own beliefs on what YOU THINK he should do with the money he makes.

    Agree...except there is a WAY to disagree with a brother or sister , name calling and aggression has never been God way of correction.

    A calm rebuke will often be listed to...but angry nasty word is all a persson can hear...they do not 'harken to' the content...even if it may be correct, all the 'hear' is someone angry or deriding correcting them...the hurt over rides any correction that the angry person intended...so it all ends up a futile waste of time and fruitless.

    I made no comment as to what he should do.===judge not lest you be judged! For a Man of God to sell a book and then use that money to help give the world the Gospel He is doing a VERY GOOD thing=a smart thing!! =====If you sell a book what you use that money for is all your choice but if you do use it to share the Gospel I say you did a good thing!

    I really do believe we need to accept the truth that we are often very critical of others.... And having done so, just concentrate on delivering our criticisms in as loving a manner as we can manage to find within us.

    Always a good idea to confess and repent God will forgive and wash us clean and say==go and sin no more!

    I kind of figure He is a LITTLE pleased if our trend is toward blowing it less and less as time goes by.
