To all my colleagues in "the ministry" when we utilize hype, exaggeration or manipulation to communicate our message, promote our ministries or ask for financial support; we do more harm than good to God's Kingdom. The collateral damage is spiritually devastating to the churched, the unchurched and the post churched. It's wrong, it's deceptive, it's sin and it's time to stop it!
When we hype the supernatural we're actually desensitize people to the real presence and power of God. Using hype to promote ourselves or advance ministry is selfish and deeply damaging the work of Christ around the world. It would be better to do nothing than to employ these deceptive models. Enough is enough. No more infomercial Christianity. It's time to walk the walk.
