    And that he has publicly stated that he doesn't believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah?


    Im no fan of Hagee but I dont believe you're accurate with this one. The affair is enough yes?

    Yeah, thirty years ago or something like that...and which he brought to the attention of his church himself in full confession and repentance. As a fellow Christian living with the same temptations the rest of us do, give the guy a break. He's made his peace with God about it. Who are we to hold it against him?

    I don't know what to say. Someone should tell me what to say.

    But then they say he makes over $1,000,000 a year and he says he deserves every penny of that. What about self denial?

    I would say don't worry to much about it. People tend to throw money away at people for reasons unbeknownst to us. If Hagey performs or effects someone's life enough that the person gives him money, that is between Hagey and the person.

    The Best thing for you to do is if you feel there are things wrong with what Hagey is saying then point it out to people and then let them decide, after your council whether they still find him credible or worthy of their money.

    People who step into the spotlight often think that they will be an example or use their notoriety to spread the Gospel. What they often do not perceive is that an environment that focuses on and elevates "self" quenches the Spirit and cuts one off from the wisdom of God.

    Having a failed "ministry" is sometimes the best thing that can happen to them.

    When we see such sad characters, we should consider not waving a scolding finger at them, but pray for them that God would enlighten their hearts such that they would see the danger they are in an escape before they bring the name of Christ as a mockery before the world.

    Yes, it's a good idea to pray for him.

    Do you apply the same standard here to Ted Haggard? The guy who cheated on his wife by smoking crack and fornicating with gay male prostitutes? Do I have any respect for Haggard? Last I heard, he and his wife have stuck together while he works through his transgressions, so yes I have some respect for Haggard.

    Do I have any respect for Hagee? No. This guy is a clown. And his million dollar lifestyle? Camel meet eye of needle.

    That's two post in one day the lord has given me the opportunity to use his words. BAM! Zing!

    Hagee does believe that Jesus is Lord. Heck people throughout the Bible have fell, and God still used them, to write His Holy Book.
