Richard Roberts Did It, So Tonight, Paula White’s Doing It Too

Apparently, Larry King has become TV ministry’s confessor of sorts. Shortly after allegations of alleged ORU financial mismanagement went public with Richard Roberts, he and wife Lindsay appeared on Larry King to speak up for their side of the story. Now, after a divorce from her husband Randy, Paula White is doing the same tonight. Is it because of Larry’s history of throwing softballs?

According to the CNN website:

“Televangelist Paula White gets personal! How she’s coping with the divorce from her husband of 18 years. How did she go from a troubled past to a life of ministry?
Plus, Paula responds to accusations of taking the church’s money to spend on her own lavish lifestyle. She is among six well-known televangelists under investigation by the Senate for alleged financial wrongdoing.”

Check it out tonight on Larry King Live.

    Jim and Tammy beat Richard to the LK seat by decades…

    He does throw the softball questions, but it's more than that.  He has a natural pull toward Christianity.  He is more gentle with them than anyone.

    Never have I seen a more professionally managed public relations performance from a minister. For a second I thought I was listening to a political candidate trying to spin her latest political gaffes. I can remember the days when ministers took time away from public ministry after divorce to examine themselves, heal and show the public that divorce was a serious crisis for a minister, something to be mourned. But now days divorce is just a little flat tire in the celebrity ministers life. All you need is a little fix-a-flat and your back on the road.

    God wanted her divorced so she would have more compassion for those who have been divorced??

    That was a clever spin.

    Of course she was already divorced before this marriage.  And, oh yes, God HATES divorce.

    David repented for his sin.  He saw what he had done was wrong.

    How do you know that Paula didn't repent? Just because she didn't tell you doesn't mean she hasn't.

    • he was the one that wanted the divorce as i understood it

  • island girl

    She didn't mention it to Larry King either…David repented in a way that was public, documented, and showed God's correction and redemption in his life.

    Keep in mind that the David reference is used by a lot of people in this situation, but isn’t appropriate. David wasn’t the “spiritual” leader of his people, he was the “political” leader. Granted, in Israel of the time, God was sovereign over all. But Nathan the prophet was actually the spiritual leader. So issues like the fact that David didn’t leave office after his sin aren’t relevant to this argument. During the history of the church its been the thought that a pastor who divorces should at least take a significant break from public ministry to get their life back together before they have the arrogance to teach us how to live our lives. Broken people in the pulpit aren’t in much of a condition to tell others how to live. As someone once said, “Hurting people hurt people.”
