Senator Probes Opulent Lifestyle Of Mega-Church Leaders

Shurley shome mishtake!

The gospel message that links God with dollars has been called to judgment before a powerful U.S. senator.

Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) sent letters requesting detailed financial documents to two metro Atlanta preachers and four other ministries nationwide whose leaders are known for opulent, or as the ministers would say, blessed, lifestyles.

Grassley is the ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee and has developed a reputation for demanding financial transparency from non-profits.

The organizations and their leaders are:

Randy and Paula White of Without Walls International Church and Paula White Ministries of Tampa, Fla.

Benny Hinn of World Healing Center Church Inc. and Benny Hinn Ministries of Grapevine, Texas

David and Joyce Meyer of Joyce Meyer Ministries of Fenton, Mo.

Kenneth and Gloria Copeland of Kenneth Copeland Ministries of Newark, Texas

Bishop Eddie Long of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church and Bishop Eddie Long Ministries of Lithonia

Creflo and Taffi Dollar of World Changers Church International and Creflo Dollar Ministries of College Park.more

Bill Maher New Rule.
