crooks-homos-pulpit-86.JPGNational talk show host and Essence Magazine's # 1 best selling author, Reuben Armstrong, is about to release his next best seller and most controversial book to date entitled Crooks and Homos in the Pulpit. It can be pre-ordered now at (www.crooksandhomosinthepulpit.com) and will be available in bookstores nation-wide May 15th 2009.

 

Crooks and Homos in the Pulpit focuses on Megapastors such as Bishop T.D. Jakes, Eddie Long, Joel Osteen and Bishop Eddie Long, reported homosexual pastor, Ted Haggard, as well as their Megachurches. Critics are calling Armstrong's book an eye opener and a wake up call for the Body of Christ. Armstrong held a private news conference in his studio to discuss the book and his concerns about the rampant spread of homosexuality and thievery that has taken over the lives of many pastors and ministers. According to Armstrong, crooks and homosexuals are spreading their lies and deception throughout the church world like peanut butter on bread.

reuben-armstrong-85.jpg"Too many churches have forgotten about saving souls. That's because the pastors and ministers are only thinking about how many women and men they can sleep with inside and outside of the church, and how much money they can steal from God's people," said Armstrong. He also pointed out that pastors and ministers are misleading their congregations by teaching more about prosperity (material things) than about having a personal relationship with God.

Synopsis of the book:

Do church leaders such as Bishop T.D. Jakes, Bishop Eddie Long, Dr. Creflo Dollar, Joel Osteen, or reported homosexual Pastor Ted Haggard truly understand God's Word? If so, why have they become corporate CEOs, allowing money, greed, and materialism to take over their souls? These leaders are whoring God's people from the pulpit, while teaching legions of pimps, crooks, liars, and homosexuals, who pose as pastors, to follow in their footsteps.

In Crooks and Homos in the Pulpit, author Reuben Armstrong exposes the false doctrine of prosperity and "feel good" message that Megapastors and Megachurches are using. You will discover what the Bible says about false leaders such as these men and the judgment they face. Armstrong points out that too many churches have become corporate meet and meat markets. Through extensive research, he outlines what really goes on inside the "house of worship." He exposes the shocking lifestyles of prosperity preachers, the sexual favors given in pastoral studies and Sunday School rooms, and the church "hoochie mommas" and "puff daddies" these leaders attract as their groupies.

Wow! I see Mr. Armstrong is back at it again, his first book Snakes in the Pulpit was filled with unsubstantial rumors and hearsay from a man who has never interviewed nor visited the churches of the pastors he claimed to be providing an expose on. I have never read any of his books, but having been a member of Pastor Jakes’ church for well over 13 years I am deeply offended that this man would write not only one book, but two books on someone he knows little to no personal information on. I would implore anyone who considers buying this book to read the Amazon.com book reviews of the first book. There you will discover that the vast majority of the reviewers of the book were disappointed in their purchases. When Mr. Armstrong called into a Dallas radio station to discuss his book, I was able to get my call through, and I asked Rueben on what grounds were his accusations supported, and he was unable to provide substantial evidence of the claims he made against Bishop Jakes and the other ministers in his book. Even other callers of that morning’s radio show stated that Mr. Armstrong was dishonest and untrustworthy, and these were former co-workers of Mr. Armstrong! My issue is, what about the millions of dollars given by the ministries in his book to improve the communities they serve? The millions of dollars used to help provide clean drinking water to the driest parts of Africa; The hundreds of Africans that were helped by the medicines and the team of physicians that accompanied Bishop Jakes to Africa every year from 2005 through 2008? I can go on and on about the blessing Bishop Jakes has been to the body of Christ. There are millions around the world who look to his as a spiritual guide, and at least 30k locals in the Dallas metro area who call him Pastor. Here’s a question that deserves answering, if his first book was about the snakes in the pulpit, and now this book is about the crooks in the pulpit, yet he highlights the same ministers, what new will you learn from this book that was not brought forward in the first? No, we should not praise man, nor give God’s glory to another, especially a human, but as someone who has been personally affected by the sacrifice and love that Bishop Jakes and his wife have poured out as Pastors of The Potter’s House, I cannot and absolutely will not stand by as someone who is out to make a quick buck on the backs of men and women of God who have labored for years in the Gospel and not speak out on his foolishness that once again been allowed for publishing. I am proud to call Bishop TD Jakes my Pastor and I will continue to be until God calls me home! Gob Bless!

I am a firm beliver that if anyone writes a book there is an audience out there that will grab it no matter what the contents. Having been a follower of the teachings of many of those targeted over the years only one question comes to mind--where did Mr. Armstrong get his information? These are men of God who spread the word of God and yes that message includes one of prosperity. These men have helped many to better their lives while encouraging people that relationship with God is their first priority. It's amazing that there are some today that views teachings of prosperity as greed yet in all honesty that person him/herself is actually doing the same thing albeit in a different platform. I am not one that will purchase or read any book of this type. I'm sure many will. Because I know the truth which is found in God's word and have benefitted personally from the teachings, I only say one thing to Mr. Armstrong...the word says touch not God's anointed nor do his prophets no harm. Believe the Word as when you attack one of God's chosen ones in a manner as you have He will repay you. None of these people have to even dignify your book with any type of responses. I'm sure there are enough people who will do this on their behalf. Be blessed. "Brethren my hearts desire and prayer to God is that many might be saved for I bear you record that they being ignorant of God's ways are going about establishing their own way and that way will lead to a destructive end." In closing I'd like to say there is a way to put out a good book without putting down others, especially men and women that are doing and continually reach out to help hurting people improve their lives. Be blessed!

My question is what does this man deem to gain from this types of written statements against this people of God? He is spending to much energy on them and not enough on himself. It takes a lifetime to keep your self saved, you might miss something watching somoeone else. Whatever anyone is doing that is not satisfactory to God, he will repay, not man. This man need to judge himself on what he is doing for the kingdom of God. Jesus was never into degrading people, he was always uplifting people. By love an kindness he drew people to himself. Love is the thing that is going to draw people today. Not smearing someone's name. This man couldn't be a child of God to try and degrade these men and women of God. I pray he learns to save himself and leave other people alone.

God Bless!!

He can write what he wishes, but as Apostle Peter tells us not to let it be true. Our message and life is not hide like those that pretend to be Christians. This fellow is writing to degrade these men of God because he is lonely. The Bible tells us that 'it is not good that man should be alone.' LOL

How do any of you know if what this man is saying is wrong? Many of you only hope that such a thing is not wrong because your pathetic lives have been shaped by these wealth glutons bound for hellfire. None of these rich preachers lifestyles or sermons are in line with scripture. It would take someone who not only knows the lord, but have study the Lord's sermons and teachings to know this. We have been warned by Yahushua about false prophets arising and this book exposes them so much, that the truth kills the followers of these men. Whats done in the dark comes to the light.

Mr. Hill, one of the things that we will not overlook about these men and women is that they are not infallible. If we study the book of Romans and I John we can clearly see that sin is destroyed in the spirit but alive in the body. Therefore we are not saying these saints are perfect. However, we live in a capitalist society where the ability to get wealth is a greater percentage than a society that is not capitalist. In America if a pastor and his staff are leading a mega church, financially they will fair much better than a mega church in another country. This is the way things are. Even the Bible, that you quoted from, states we should not muzzle the ox, .. and a workman is worthy of his hire.

The only man that I would put my neck on the line for is the man that made man, however some people are saved and we must defend the saints. Every attack isn’t warranted, and that’s when saints must defend saints. If there is an obvious fault that has been revealed in the life of a saint, then a space must be called a space.

The author’s attack is sad because if he is part of the body of Christ he is cutting off his own hand. It will not look bad for the one he is attacking; it will only reveal that he is not a Christian. The Bible tells us to love our brothers and sisters, and when there is a dispute we should go to the church to correct it. This author is doing what the world does, that is to persecute the saints. False prophets are those that attack the body. If this author is a saint, why couldn’t he have listed problems that are identifiable rather than ambiguous? In his ambiguity he wants everybody in the world to be against the Church. This is nothing but an orchrist (a hypocrite).

The time has come for all these things to be seen and happend. I wont judge anyone because judgment belong to God and God alone. But men of God should learn to be their brothers keeper in showing love and care in times of wrong.Let us not killed the kingdom of God but build it in rightouness, peace and joy.

test comment

this man writing all this about God men, are you A christian ,I hope not because God is Love and he is the only judge.The Word of God state in the Gospel of Matthew that what ever you see in another person that is yourself.GOD said it I didnt. Yours Truly,

Thanks for taking the top out to write this very nice article.

Brethren beware of wolves,we are leaving in prerapture season(Rev6;).Times are bad(IT'S 11:59PM go to www.repentandpreparetheway.org read about what God has shown His servant dr David Owuor) ,and for those supporting false prophets read(mat7:17-23mat10,2tim3:1-9).Brethren don't follow these pastors because they teach materialism as opposed to christ's self-denial.I implore Armstrong to slaughter prophets of baal with their gospel of prosperity they have robbed God's flock for so long these pple are not after saving souls .American who bewitched U(Gal3) that yuo dont even teach yuor children how to dress be4 God Almighty;they put on hipsters mini-skirts(1tim2:9),aren't making the house of the most High God look like the temple of ashera(hollywood).u have substituted righteousness and holiness with immorality and materialism.

It's so amazing to see those who defend Word of Faith Movement teachers. It's in fact pathetic to see people still calling such wolves men and women of God...read your own Bibles the criteria for men of God.

I don't know Mr. Armstrong but I will agree with some of the things he'll write in his book. He may write from hearsay but I know from experience of how fierce these TV preachers and prosperity agents are, they're surely wolves in sheep skin.

After 15 years of following these guys, I started seeing that their doctrines were not in line with Scripture. They rather teach their own doctrines which contradict scripture. This makes is also clear why they can't live up to the demands of Scripture. You can't live opposite what you believe i.e. if you believe in ungodly doctrines your lifestyle will be characterised by ungodly practices.

ONE THING I HATE IS THAT WE ALWAYS TRY TO MAKE EXCUSES AND SAY THEY ARE JUST MEN. GOD CHOSE THEM AND CALLED THEM AND QUALIFIED THEM ITS THEIR JOB TO BE EXAMPLES TO THOSE THEY PASTOR AND LEAD. AND PRAY IF THEY ARE WEEK. I KNOW GOD GOT SOME PASTORS WHO DO WRONG BUT NOT ALL OF THEM SHOULD BE LIVING SINFUL LIVES.WE ALL HAVE TEMPTATIONS BUT GOD HAS GIVEN US A WAY OF ESCAPE, AND ITS THROUGH READING THE WORD AND PRAYING AND HAVING A MADE UP MIND THAT WE WILL LIVE THIS LIFE TO THE BEST OF OUR ABILITY AND WHEN WE ARE WEAK THROUGH HIM(GOD) WE ARE MADE STRONG. I HAVE BEEN THERE DONE THAT, IAM A WITNESS GOD CAN KEEP YOU IF YOU WANT TO BE KEPT ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS KEEP OUR MIND STAYED ON HIM, BUT WE LET OUR MIND GET THE BEST OF US WHEN TEMPTATIONS ENTERS OUR MIND WE NURSE IT INSTEAD OF RESISTING, ANYWAY I PRAY FOR ALL OF OUR LEADERS THAT THEY WILL BE STRONG IN THE LORD AND IN THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT NOT THEIRS.STOP DEFENDING WRONG! AND STAND FOR WHAT IS RIGHT THESE ARE SEASONED MEN AND WOMEN OF GOD NOT BABES, GOD IS A FORGIVING GOD AND HE WILL FORGIVE, HOWEVER WE LOSE THE ANOINTING WHEN WE FALL IN TO DIVERS TEMPTATIONS. SO LET US LEARN FROM ALL OF THIS AND DO OUR BEST TO BE LEADERS AND GODLY EXAMPLES TO THE WORLD AND NOT MAKE GOD ASHAME NOR OURSELVES. CONTINUE TO KEEP ALL OF GOD'S LEADERS IN PRAYER.

BE YE NOT DISMAYED.

I have been warning people concerning minister like these. Church people are the most naive people I know. They think that every man in the pulpit was call by God. The Bible tells us that many are called, but few are chosen. If this is true, why is it that every man that says is saved today, it appears that Gad calls them to preach. Most of these men were not called to preach, but took up preaching. It the easy money, which cause so many of these people to enter the ministry. That’s why every Sunday, they preach the paying of tithes, not telling you the truth of tithing. That’s because preaching is their occupation, and not their vocation, and it is a difference. These psuedo leaders are not the blame, but the gullible followers. The Bible rightly said, “My people perish because lack of knowledge”. When man leans on another man’s understanding, instead of reading and studying the Bible for himself, he apt to be mislead. It is this ignorance and gullibility that afford the Jakes, Longs, and Jacksons of the pulpit to commit the abomination of homosexuality, fornication and adultery without repercussion. Remember this, Christ warned us that these things must be before the end comes, for He spoke of “the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place”. These men have taken the House of God, and made it a den of thieves , prostitutes, and homosexuals, and someone needs to say that this isn’t right!

Now that the Eddie Long situation is out there it is high time church folk take our eyes off ministers and leaders because they are carnal and therefore morally corruptible. In fact under Capitalism, given the legal latitude in which churches have to operate, AND NATURE OF THE HEART OF MAN, only an idiot would not have forecasted that the Church would become prey to the scripture that says the love of money is the root of all evil. Thus people decide to be ministers not because they have compassion for lost souls; rather they have a passion for wealth so they deceive by defying the corrective will of God to transform their inner lives to holiness; remember the heart of man is deceitfully wicked from his youth. Note please, I am not judging anyone. I am simply stating in so many words, that many of us are sound asleep and need to be roused. Common sense alone dictates that one should think twice about any ministry where the leader has excess prosperity in the natural while some of the members can’t even pay their rent on- time. Shepherds care for the sheep before themselves; how many ministers do this or even try to? This does not only refer to the spiritual but extends to the natural… but ministers seldom tell you this. The church must give back and give back naturally because God never put the church in place to enrich ministers in the carnal sense but the spiritual… and if people’s lives are not being enriched spiritually, then the leader should not be enriched materially either. If a minister does not submit to oversight of the flock how can they submit to the will of God? Humility dictates submission to the lesser before the greater who is God (some minister would want to deny this principle but know that that is their carnal mind speaking). And for those leaders who say God blessed them with what they have, they must always consider where they would be if they did not have the benefits of the office they hold; yes some of them would be ok, but most of them would be broke or if they are living a lustful, filthy life, dead. People wake up! People WAKE UP.

Leadership, as Jesus defined it, means servanthood.

“Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,” Jesus said (Matthew 20:26). He illustrated that statement soon afterward by wrapping a towel around his waist, dropping to his knees and washing the filthy feet of his disciples, including those of his betrayer.

God illustrates the converse for us in Ezekiel 34, where he tells Ezekiel to warn the shepherds of Israel, the pastors of that era, that they are only taking care of themselves. “You have not strengthened the weak or healed the sick or bound up the injured,” God says. “You have not brought back the strays or searched for the lost. You have ruled them harshly and brutally” (Ezekiel 34:4). If pastors are not serving those whose bodies or souls are weak, sick, or injured, if they are not extending any care toward those who have lost interest in the church or in God, or if they are presenting, by their words or actions, a faith based on performance (see Galatians 3:3), their behavior might be aptly described as harsh and brutal. They are only taking care of themselves. They are not following Jesus’ example and acting as servants for their people. The most insidious effect of spiritual abuse, of course, is that it can damage the way one may view God, so that they distrust him as much as we distrust pastors.or bishops. In fact, we have anguish over the many people who have begun viewing God in those ways after being hurt in a church especially baby christians youth and young adults. This type of abuse does damage ones perceptions of God—perhaps because we do not trust the church or pastor to be any more spiritual than we were are as new members of the body of Christ. We distrust God for allowing the abuse to happen. We often asked God in prayer, “Why do you put up with pastors or bishops like that? Why don’t you hand their churches over to someone more competent?”Spiritual abuse is prominently discussed in scripture. The strongest, most emotional and even violent responses Jesus displayed came against spiritual abusers. From the above-described encounter between Jesus and the Pharisees in the synagogue to the cleansing of the Temple, Jesus confronted those who misused their spiritual authority at the expense of those who followed them. Let's look at some passages.

Jeremiah 5:26-31 describes a perversion of justice in Israel where those in authority, the prophets and priests, were adding to their own wealth, power, and prestige at the expense of the needy. This angered God Who asked, "Shall I not visit for these things?" This same perversion of justice is described again in Jeremiah 6:13-14 where the false leaders give lip service to healing, saying, "Peace, peace; when there is no peace." Needy people left these spiritual authorities with no real help and God was angry for that. An authoritarian leader will seek to be unaccountable for his actions, or inactions, this side of heaven.
Matthew 19:14 Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these
New International Version (©1984)
"And if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a large millstone tied around his neck
because it is the time of the beginning of the judgment from the house of God, and if first from us, what the end of those disobedient to the good news of God?

As in the classic doctor¡¯s bag that people seem to love so much? Is it the utilitarian? Is it the inherent functionality? Or is it something to do with nostalgia and the need to link with the past? Designer and fashion design seem very satisfied everywhere taken with these Designer Inspired Handbag Shop . Many Italian fashion houses, and now producing bags inspired by the classic medical bag.

Do you have Cheapest Replica Handbags ? I know the answer. My personal favorites are Louis Vuitton and Coach. I know that is to say that my favorite Wild Oats and Wal-Mart supermarket. Each bag has its own specialty. Best of all bags Coach bags offered outlets is that they are available at an affordable price with coupons for departure. In addition, these bags are easily treated.

Please someone should tell this man to get busy.It is obvious he is idle because if he had something to do,what Td Jakes and co wont be his problem.LEAVE THEM ALONE.

It's weird, that often the most simple methods are often the greatest! I will bring the above mentioned tips into approach and see the effects. Thanks for sharing this page!

I’d come to bury the hatchet with you here. Which is not something I usually do! I love reading a post that will make people think. Also, thanks for allowing me to speak my mind!
