In case you haven’t heard of “Preachers of LA,” this is a show where pastors parade around in fancy cars and big houses, showing them how the Lord has “blessed” them with so many material possessions. Any person with an IQ above 12 can see what’s happening here, but unfortunately, the show might end up being a hit. But here are a few reasons why this show might corrupt your soul and why we’re not planning on being fans of this televised monstrosity:
1) Because it makes preachers look more corrupt and untrustworthy than they already do: There are millions of people who refuse to go to church, mainly because they think the pastor is there to steal their money. So, when the pastor has a church in a poor neighborhood and drives off in a Mercedes Benz, it only confirms the suspicion of the skeptics. It’s one thing for a pastor to make a little money on the side, and another thing for him to flaunt it.
2) Because it makes black preachers look like buffoons: Most of the preachers on the show are men of color. Why is it that so many black preachers also want to be rappers and celebrities?
3) It makes black people in church look stupid: As silly as the preachers look on this show, this is an even worse reflection on the people who follow them. Why are you giving all of your money to a man who is going on television showing how he loves to waste it?
4) It shows that these men worship money more than God: If you can’t get away from materialism in church, then where can you? Shouldn’t a show about pastors be centered around God instead of the size of the preacher’s bank account?
5) It’s another Vh1 ploy to exploit black people: Black people are the driving force behind Vh1’s economic success. While they get rich feeding us garbage, we sit around like ignorant vegetables, taking in whatever crap is tossed onto the screen. This isn’t healthy for your mind, body or soul, which is why we are the first to die from a long list of diseases, are the worst in education and have so many problems leading to depression and addiction. There is a connection here; what you put into your mind defines who you are as a person.
