You have probably heard by now that noted Christian teacher Jack Van Impe ended his broadcast relationship with Trinity Broadcasting over the latter’s attempt to censor Van Impe. Van Impe had been with the network for 23 of its 38 years on air. GCM Watch writer Christopher Gregory helped break the story here. Since that time, conflicting stories have circulated as whether Van Impe quit or was terminated by the Crouch family. Van Impe candidly spoke about the incident on his broadcast and revealed some rather surprising facts about his severed relationship with the nation’s largest Christian network and its controversial policies forbidding its program hosts from calling the names of specific false teachers on air.
GCM Watch was told that on June 14th, TBN would be posting an official response on its website and would address the controversy on its “Behind the Scenes” program, but neither materialized.
In a new video released by Jack Van Impe Ministries, the story of what happened is told in full detail. Christopher Gregory’s story is cited as one of the more prominent articles speaking out against TBN’s actions.
TBN’s website described the Van Impe program.
“The award winning weekly news telecast features Dr. Jack and Rexella Van Impe. Combining Dr. Jack Van Impe’s extreme intelligence, insight and knowledge of Bible prophecy with stories pulled from today’s headlines, the weekly television program Jack Van Impe Presents is your source for up-to-date prophecy news and more!”
A new Christian film star on the horizon? You may want to take a closer look first.
Its truly a tragic thing when we have to alert people in the church about other “church-types” who are working against God’s will to infect the church with their insanity. Enter Matt Crouch, stage left.
The Preacher’s Kid, is the latest religious movie backed by Matt Crouch and his Gener8Xion Entertainment company.
The star of Crouch’s new movie is Letoya Luckett and she’s about to seduce your pastor using a very familiar biblical story. But the story within the story is an old one: satan is cunning and many in the contemporary church are ripe for his deception.
I watched the TBN talkup show where DC area pimpster Micheal Freeman and his wife Dee Dee gushed and told pastors to get their daughters and rush out to see the movie. On a contradictory note, Freeman said the movie wasn’t for the church, but his wife turned right around and said the church should support it by packing out theaters. So which lie is it?

“Absolutely. Ab-so-lutely. It’s one of those things that’s like, you know what, you’ve got to let people be who they are. Whether you agree with a lifestyle or not, you have to let that person be who they are. You have to love them for who they are.
I just went to the Latex Ball [gcmw: a bizarre black gay subculture like Alice in Wonderland meets Marilyn Manson] in New York. Oh, my God! I have never seen so much creativity in one room. So much freedom. That’s what I appreciate about the gay community. You know: Do you and don’t worry about other people and their opinions. It’s so colorful and lively, and everybody’s not sitting around and — you know when you go to a club and everybody’s sitting around and standing along the walls and people watch? It’s not about that. Everybody [at gay clubs] is ready to let their hair down and have fun and get into it, and that’s about love.
I hadn’t had that much fun in a long time. A lo-o-ong time. I mean, they were givin’ it, Honey! Giving. And I love that. I love it. I can’t stand hateful people. I can’t stand hardhearted people, and unfortunately there’s a lot of people like that in this world, and it’s got to die. Let it die, let it die, let it die. Let love live.”
Add to that Luckett’s last CD with F minus songs like “She aint got s*** on me”.
So this is living your best life now? Luckett, per an interview using her religious mask, is a member of Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church (see comment section) and faithfully listens to Joel Osteen on her ipod or itunes, whichever is handy.
The choice of actors in this movie, crafted to appeal to African Americans pastors and churchgoers, incorporates the very worst religious ideology and typology possible. From the lukewarm preacher to the silly, one dimensional churchgoers, everything screams “shallow”. The sad thing is that it is an all too true reflection of the contemporary black church. Its producer who said on TBN that Crouch allowed him complete control. Actors for movies are never chosen randomly and without consideration of who they are and what type of person they appeal to based on their lifestyle. Clearly, Luckett’s mixture of homosexuality, race, church and music made her a prime candidate.
In the Advocate, Luckett says that she believes same-sex marriage will “eventually happen” in her native Texas. “Or people are going to move and go to places where it’s accepted. I don’t know if it’ll happen tomorrow, but whatever is in God’s will, it will be. Hey, everybody deserves love. Everybody deserves commitment. And why shouldn’t the gay community have that?”
What a convoluted definition of love.
In my opinion, the problem with the movie that its a reinvented story of horizontal redemption. Not one where the person comes back, repents to Christ and finds new life in him, but one where the person comes home and everybody lives happily ever after. Let’s be honest, what parent wouldnt want their messed up kid to come home, but coming home isn’t salvation. And the message parable about the lost son wasn’t just coming home to an earthly father, but home to God.
Unfortunately, we are seeing some of the same church leaders with questionable views on homosexuality associated with these “feel good” stories.
Producer Stan Foster is a member of West Angeles COGIC.
Foster also produced TD Jakes’ Woman thou are loosed movie which was filmed at West Angeles.
Kierra Sheard was thrown in the mix to get the COGIC crowd attention.
R&B sex freak Trey Songz was also given a spot in the film.
Should you go to see it? That’s up to you, but just know that Letoya Luckett will use the fame and money she gets from movies like this push for abominations like homosexual marriage. I’d advise what the Bible says in 1 Tim 5:22 Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure.
