Rick Henderson a blogging pastor makes the following perceptive observations about Joyce Meyer's TV ministry.
"I challenge you to watch a typical message by Joyce Meyer. Here are a few of things you will notice: She pauses about every five minutes for applause. And if people don't applaud she is likely to say something like, "I'm preaching better than you're acting. "She talks about herself constantly. She is the main character in every story she tells. Even when she talks about herself in a self-deprecating way, some how it comes across in a way that causes people to admire her more. God talks to her and reveals new information to her... a lot! Her ministry lacks real accountability. Her family and her close friends are the governing board. This is an organization that receives almost $100 million dollars annually, and with no substantive accountability."
On the few occasions that she uses Scripture as a springboard for her doctrine the end result is horrific and her hermeneutics is abominable.
