Its interesting how Preachers who are giving us an interpretation of God’s Word and his Will for us, are treated as a god and if they are involved in a fault, the public & the media attacks, their character, their lives and demeans them through mass communicative means. Yet those who declare and live a lifestyle of anything that’s demoralizing, ‘sinful’, and or unethical, no one attacks them. In fact, they are revered and spread by the media as business successes, like Hugh “Hef” Heffner.
Read from his own site at playboy enterprises: Frequently interviewed by major news and entertainment media the world over, Hefner was the subject of a 2003 A&E special, Playboy’s 50th Anniversary Celebration, a star-studded two-hour event filmed at the Playboy Mansion featuring live music, comedy performances and interviews. Hefner was also profiled in a two-hour special, Hugh Hefner: American Playboy, as part of A&E’s prestigious Biography series in 1996. That program was so well received that it was repeated in its entirety on the network only three months after its original airing.
Many preachers who have also done well financially, are not treated like Mr. Heffner, but shot down as false preachers, deceitful, deal with devil makers, etc. Of course, I am not saying all preachers are true deliverers and worshipers of the one and only Lord and Creator of all we see, but we should know them by their fruit. Its just interesting to see how deeply and quickly they are crucified by the people, while they allow lovers of the carnal to go unchallenged.
