Late-Night Comedy with Lee Stoneking

I swear, I can't tell if the audience is either
a.) on a rush of crystal-meth
b.) playing along or
c.) actually believing this load of bollox
At any rate, here's Lee Stoneking providing us with some late-night humor for ya'll tonight.

JESSSSSSSSSSSSSSUSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

You know I can preach. In fact I used to do it as part of my act. Plus I do it for laughs at parties and such. I am telling you if I had it in me I could do this and make big time cash.

But My God is not a get rich quick scheme.

This is like an evangelical version of Bill-O's "We'll do it LIVE! We'll do it LIVE!" rant as if staged by the roadies and impresarios handling a KISS tour. You can't tell me that the handful of be-suited portly gents who "spontaneously" leap up at the high points to wave their arms isn't choreographed and pre-seeded. It's the same ones again and again and just so beautifully distributed...and didn't you like the stage directions from Stoneking to the crowd to say this or do that? Oops - he didn't say Simon Says! No cookie for you!

The vast majority of people in that auditorium, though? I sadly do suspect they are true believers, just content to finally be part of a group and to be told what to believe rather than having to take their own risks and think for themselves. I've long felt it funny and a bit disconcerting how so much of the ranting about how persecuted the born-again crowd is happens in these huge mega-churches packed to the rafters with like-minded people who parrot the same lines to one another. It's like a crowd of season-ticket holders griping about how nobody appreciates fill-in-your-sport-here any more.

Do you have a business plan, Count? I'd consider kicking in some funding. "Count Istvan's Dangerous Tent Revival & Banned."

There needs to be more following of the money of these televangelists, none of whom is passing through the eye of a needle anytime soon from what I can see.

I'm not sure why I'm bothering to respond to your comments except that perhaps I know this man speaking and your comments are quite irritating, because he is the real deal. He is not a televangelist, and while this is a meeting of "true believers" as you say, it is a yearly conference hosted by this particular church for ministers and their wifes only - they usually run around 3,000-4,000 at this conference. If you were to ever attend one of these services during the "Because of the Times" conferences you would know they are the furthest thing from staged. You may not believe in their experience, but what have any of these people ever done to you to deserve such vitriol? Again, you're free to not believe, but give me a break, he's preaching about bringing help and healing to people and encouraging the assembled ministers that they can be a part of reaching out to hurting people. How is that a bad thing? If they are all frauds, it will be apparent fairly quickly, since they're not telling people to shake a preacher's hand and "sow your $1000 seed" into my ministry and God's going to solve all of your problems. These folks teach and believe that God is real, and involved in the affairs of men personally, and that he manifested himself on earth as Jesus Christ, and that to this very day he still moves supernaturally to save people and to heal disease and sickness. If they don't back it up with a supernatural move of God's power to save and heal people, no one is going to listen to them, so why the need for your sarcasm and hatred? These people are indeed "true believers"...I know because I am one of them, and I have experienced the saving and healing power of God in my life; and you may freely choose to mock and denigrate, that is your right, but I have an experience with God and all you've got is an argument that says it can't be true. Fortunately for me, a man with an experience is never at the mercy of a man with a mere argument.

Dear Johnathan,

I happen to know Rev. Stoneking as he has been a regular speaker at our church for the last 15+ years. He is one of the most graceful and gracious men alive. He is honest to the core and has spent the better part of his entire life spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. To denegrate this man in your blog is without merit and understanding. He truly is holy and while he does evengelise, he is not some millionaire who lives in a fancy house bought from the spoils of his speaking engagements. I challenge you to contact Rev. Stoneking directly with your views. However, I know you will never do that because if you did the goodness of this man and the truth he espouses would surely win you to His truth. I will pray for you Jonathan because regardless of your misgivings you are still a child of God and He makes no mistakes. Your blogging skills might well be used for His purposes some day. Praise God!

As a Christian I will say this with all the love that I have for this man Jesus The Christ not Jesssssssssusssssss!( Can"t you spell?)Respect his name! you have no Idea what you are up against.
Lee Stoneking is a Godly man and
you don't need to try to become famous from bashing him. If your were any kind of man you would
do your homework before just picking YOUR average Joe minister, but one of the Greatest.
I have been in many of his church
services. GOD IS ALWAYS THERE.
IT IS APPARENT THAT YOU USE YOUR
ENERGY FOR SATAN. WHAT A WASTE.
KNOW JESUS AND THE LOVE HE HAS FOR YOU. YOU"LL BE A HEAD OF THE GAME
REGUARDS.

Jonathan,I came across your disussing web page. you have a
problem,with this preacher because
you have been called to preach the
gospel of Jesus and you have rejected the call. you also are from a pentecostal backgroud that
you turned you back on.But it not to late. Jesus still loves you and
you know it. Quit running you know the way that you life should have gone. The situation that
God did not answer for you is not going to be excused by the Lord Jesus
Hope for you is just a pray away.
How great is our God.

I have heard Lee Stoneking preach many times. He is not a televangelist. He is a very humble and spiritual man of God. He has given much of his life to the ministry, not for the intent of becoming famous or wealthy, but because of his true desire to spread the gospel and reach others. I would suggest that the next time that you choose to mock and blaspheme a speaker of any sort, you would do better to get your facts straight. That is just shoddy journalism, irresponsible blogging, and slanderous. But chalk one up for freedom of speech. I agree with Mark, contact Mr. Stoneking and allow him the opportunity to respond to your accusations and judgements. I am sure that you won't do that, you would much rather take a cowards way out and publically trash someone who is not given an opportunity to share their side of the story. If in fact, you do, I pray that you can become a little more open minded and recognize that not only is Mr. Stoneking a phenomenal person, but one of the most spiritual men I have had the privilege of hearing speak. I regards to the comments about the congregation, my own pastor was there, and although I cannot speak on behalf of all of those attending, I do know several, and they do not deserve this kind of attack either.

Yes you are the douchebag posting on a 4 year old thread and we have an axe to grind.

I've heard Stoneking preach in person at a singles conference. Pure inspiration to the believer. I wish I could do what he does and change someone's world. I wish I was talented like that. Even if it was all just for one miracle, it would be worth it! Finally, heaven on earth for some poor lost soul. I'm sure they'd appreciate the effort when they got their healing or an important answer.
