Isn't Christianity a global religion who's spiritual promises are available to every single man and woman alive today on Earth?

Then how did a global religion become dominated by Southern North American televangelist trading "miracles" for money.

Are they trying to make it difficult to stomach? They're doing a good job.

This is why the Bible says not to "follow man", but rather, to follow God.   Just because there are some nutty preachers out there (especially certain tv preachers), that doesn't mean that they are necessarily preaching God's message.   Man is fallible.  Even preachers, truthful or not.

Really well said Patrica. I couldn't have said it better (or even as good) myself. :0)
