Comments: What are people saying about TBN

Click here for comments about Trinity Music City's former pastor, Steve Galiher.

My hats off to you for being the first to have the guts to expose this man, Marty Layton. A lot of people have experienced this from that ministry ...a lot of people are afraid to expose it because of looking bad in the Christian community. -crazydrummaman11-

I worked for TBN while at the Holy Land Experience in Orlando Florida for many years! Has TBN misused funds? Absolutely. -Former TBN employee, Cheryl Tallafuss, Read more-

While living in Brentwood, Tennessee for a short time I would frequent the TBN headquarters in Hendersonville, Tennessee. What I saw at TBN changed my spiritual perceptions dramatically. While scanning the large crowds waiting to see the latest "super evangelist", I began to notice the economic classes of these people. Most were common working class and some poorer, impoverished Americans. These people would wait in line while the superegos of TBN namely, Laverne Tripp, his wife Edith Tripp, founder Jan Crouch, her daughter – in – law, and son Matt crouch, would arrive at the ex-Conway Twitty mansion in furs, Armani styles, and in a black stretch limousine. -Kristen Scott, Read more--

"Prosperity theology is a false theology," said R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky. Between its message and its reputation for high spending, Mr. Mohler said, "TBN has been a huge embarrassment to evangelical Christianity for decades." -Read more-

... last night as I watched TBN. They were talking about a lady who considered herself married to Jesus and she never married a 'moral' man. That part was alright, I guess, but then they went on to explain how she would fix her hair, put on makeup and wear a sheer nightgown each night so she would be attractive 'as she slept in the arms of her husband (Jesus). I swear I nearly fell off my chair watching was SO not appropriate, and kinda had sexual overtones. Was REALLY creepy and so disrespectful ...the sexual overtones were simply shocking. -TC-

Hollaine "Holly" Allen, a former public-affairs director for TBN's station in Tacoma, Wash., compared TBN in her complaint "to a Southern plantation of pre-Civil War days. The Crouches are the master and mistress who move the slaves (employees) in and out at will, upon the slightest whim." -Read more-

"They ordained everyone ...They think they're above rebuke. It's like, 'You've touched God's anointed and now you're going to get it,'" said Marvin L. Martin, who produced "Praise the Lord" for more than eight years. -Read more-

BRAVO!!! Long story short: my husband is the pastor of a tiny church here in TN. As is typical in the ministry, we live on slim finances, a very simple life. One day I found my husband in front of TBN in tears. Benny Hinn was begging US for a gift of $1,000 so he could upgrade his cameras! I was furious! My husband was discouraged! Since that day, TBN has been banned in our home. I am so grateful that someone is shedding light (or at least trying to!) on this work of iniquity. KEEP UP THE AMAZING WORK! WE ARE SO GRATEFUL WE HEARD ABOUT YOU! BLESS YOU. —Andrea, Read more comments at

I just wanted to write to encourage everyone at ministry watch to keep up the good work by highlighting the ministries that are effective and efficient and also exposing those that aren't transparent. I'm totally in agreement with you that ministries such as Benny Hinn and TBN need to be accountable. I believe God will use you all to expose the abuses and hopefully, direct those donors funds to reputable causes. I applaud your efforts and may God richly bless each of you! —Felicia, Read more comments at

TBN started with Jim and Tammy Baker as the hosts, but due to jealously and internal strife the Bakers were forced out, afterwards it started on the ‘narrow way’ then detoured down the 'broad way' Matthew 7:13Bible quoteEnter ye in at the strait gate: for wide [is] the gate, and broad [is] the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat.Matthew 7 verse 13 by giving a platform to modern day heresies that preached a different gospel, a different Jesus with a different spirit! Galatians 1:6-9Bible quote(verse 6) I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

(verse 7) Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

(verse 8) But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

(verse 9) As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.Galatians 1 verses 6-9

When the money started rolling in, sound doctrine went out! the leaven grew and grew and permeated the church with its language and rethoric, the TITHE became the ‘golden calf’ that delivers instead of Christ.

Just because something grows doesn’t mean it meets with Gods approval, there are millions of Jehovahs witnesses, Mormons and Muslims whos view of Christ and salvation contradicts each other and the Bible.

People always pronounce death threats when they know deep down their religion stands on a shakey foundation Matthew 7:26-27Bible quote(verse 26) And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

(verse 27) And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.Matthew 7 verses 26-27

Yes, the Baker’s and the Crouch’s had very close tithes. We even recall Tammy sitting on a previous show with Jan Crouch boasting about how they both were like two white doves cleaning out their facility they would soon make into a television studio. You noticed how we just recalled, ‘white doves’? Now, that is enough to tell you right there they were in the wrong spirit. Therefore, they always pretended to be Christians, but they really were always out just to get everybody’s money, all races. So, of course, when you do not reach all races for Jesus Christ, but only just to become millionaires, God won’t allow it to last. So, jealousy, violence, lust and everything else follows. So sad, but it is the truth. God bless you and stay strong. -AT2W Staff,

Enlace TBN Making Money in Mexico and all Latin American with their Spanish-Language Station Enlace Internet. Why do I have a problem with this? -Anonymous, Elgin, IL, Read more -

Trinity Broadcasting Network lied and extorted money. RIPOFF! -Kary, Minco, OK, Read more-

Trinity Broadcasting Network, Paul and Jan Crouch, Sr. and family, and Evangelist Benny Hinn are deliberately deceiving viewers about "Holy Land" items they sell. -Rebecca, Burnet, TX, Read more-

Benny hinn is a muslim/ fake catholic con man. Just because he claims he was born in israel does not make him a jew!! He is a pathetic little man with huge pretentions and does not care who he steals from! -Joe, 2010 Read more-

Many have apparently been taken in by the FALSE DOCTRINES and glittery facade of Trinity Broadcasting Network. Televangelists Paul and Jan Crouch often brag on their program that they do not represent an "organized religious" movement and are in no way tied to any denomination of value or long-standing.

They also brazenly state they do not give account to "man-made government groups" for how they use the funds so generously given to them by their viewers. What they are really saying is that they are yet another obvious, though more SOPHISTICATED, CULT GROUP that shamelessly bilks the elderly, lonely and homebound of pensions and Social Security checks. Credit should be given to Paul Crouch for learning from the mistakes of former cohorts such as Jim Bakker.-Ellen Rockingham, TBN Accused of Deceiving Backers, 14 June 1998-
