  1. Hi Phil, my personal feeling is that ministries need to "mess-it-up" a little.It's way too calculated. I mean 400 programs of one guy standing behind a pulpit or pacing around on-stage with a Bible… it's just old-school.Even the newer shows like on God TV, they just lack something. I can't quite put my finger on what it is yet. And I've been trying to figure it out. 'Cause if it was working as it should, they'd have a smash hit on their hands, and everyone would be telling their neighbors and friends and co-workers, etc…(I was very psyched when  God TV was starting out, I thought, "Oh, man. It's here. It's the quality we've all been waiting for…and then, during their fundraising drive they completely fell back into the same ol' routine- same preaching, same guys, same style, just a new look…bummer, man). But it all has such HUGE potential… What do you think the answer is?

  2. Hey yeah Jeff has a point. I’ve been fasting from Christian tv for the last six weeks and although there’s some very decent teaching shows that cover the current state of the church on God tv, the majority of the network lacks anything unique and is the same ol same ol.

  3. You need to check out "Travel the Road". My wife purchased the DVD's recently from their website. I think they are working on the 3rd season, "Phil may know". They also air sat nights on TBN
