Is his lifestyle Bad? I do not think it is Good either!
bob>The thing about a TV evangelist is that he's a public figure and his pitch is to everyone, be they Christians or not and it's to those who gave to him and those who did not. He needs to have an image of the highest standard without question. Billy Graham did, Jesse does not and doesn't care either.
Wealth in and of itself has nothing whatever to do with goodness or evil.
bob>Depends how it's achieved and how it's used.
The parables and stories such as the rich man entering through the narrow gate are wildly misconstrued
bob>The parable of the narrow gate is not about a rich man, but every man. The rich man through the eye of a needle is.
, in no way does that parable indicate wealth as evil, just that a rich man needs to do good things, not hoard his beneficence or strive to hurt others.
bob>We all need to do those things.
