A New Star in the Sky: Paul Crouch dies :(
I see that Paul Crouch has died.

Paul Crouch, who built what has been called the world's largest Christian broadcasting network, has died. He was 79.
Trinity Broadcasting Network reported Saturday that Crouch died after a decade-long fight with degenerative heart disease.
A message was left for Crouch's grandson Brandon, who wrote about Crouch's death on his Twitter page.
Crouch and his wife Jan founded the network in 1973 and grew it into an international Christian empire that beams prosperity gospel programming to every continent but Antarctica around the clock. The programming promises that if the faithful sacrifice for their belief, God will reward them with material wealth.
Based in Costa Mesa, the network says it has 84 satellite channels and more than 18,000 television and cable affiliates as well as a Christian amusement park in Orlando.
Those words, “Crouch died after a decade-long fight with degenerative heart disease.” Must be very hurtful to his friends and family – I never saw him as a degenerate.

The very idea that he was a secret homer who dated gay-boys and other abominations, etc, is the purest fantasy,

When Rick Jones, an ordained minister and former cop, heard his boss talking about another minister's homosexual activity with an employee, he "got up and walked away," the Los Angeles Times reported on its front page yesterday. "I didn't want to hear gossip."

But his boss was televangelist Benny Hinn, a staple on the Trinity Broadcasting Network. And Hinn was talking about TBN founder and president Paul Crouch. And Los Angeles Times reports that it's no longer just gossip—it's a tale of attempted extortion, litigation, and tragedy.
It is also a gross exaggeration and it comes with a curse,

Crouch has weathered decades of criticism for his Word-Faith theology, and is famous in some evangelical circles for his prophecies against his critics. "God, we proclaim death to anything or anyone that will lift a hand against this network and this ministry that belongs to You, God," he said in 1997.
And this is what Faith gives you: $Millions in this World and a Hot-Line to God, upon which Paul Crouch has made his final call – “Jesus, I’m home!”

Brother Paul will surely be missed...his network's programming has been one of the few things I felt allowed my wife and sons to watch on television.

His life was a true testament to what walking with Christ is all about. :innocent:

It is a glorious day indeed! Paul Crouch slowly treading towards the gates in the beyond, being met by Jesus with a smile and open arms..It brings warm salty tears to my eyes.

I still remember when I was a young boy watching his broadcasting network, feeling butterflies of splendor in my tummy when they would preach in their tender yet commanding tones..

I am worried about how Rev. Osborne might be taking this. He had a rather....complicated relationship with the Crouches. :unsure:
