Joyce Meyers’ Official Statement About “The Bling”

November 17, 2007

The bling is, of course, just a term I have used to talk about money and items used for ministry in the past few days. Great huh? haha. Anyway, earlier this week I posted about different TV ministries that were under financial investigation. Below is a section of the official statement made by the Joyce Meyer Ministries regarding the inquiry letter they recieved for financial things.

I’m very proud of the way they handled it on the ministry end and respect them for it! Check out the article or just read the section below!

What do you think?

JMM has been committed to helping hurting people for more than 20 years, and is proud to point out that in 2006, 82% of its total expenses were used for outreach and program services directed toward reaching people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, as attested by independent accounting firm Stanfield & O’Dell, LLP.

JMM provided more than 11 million meals in 2006, and built nearly 200 freshwater wells and churches in underdeveloped countries. The ministry fully funds and operates more than 50 orphanages around the world, and presents the Gospel to a potential audience of 3 billion people every day via its television program.”


Christian Leaders and the BLING BLING

November 14, 2007

A CNN video article reported that several of Americas TV evangelists are under investigation for how they handle funds that are donated to their ministries (non-profit organizations)

Hmm. It’s an interesting time when outspoken Christian leaders find themselves under investigation for financial things. I’m not sure how to feel about this. I don’t think there is anything wrong with being well off, but where do we draw the line in the sand and say driving a Bentley, as a pastor, is too much?
