    I thank Jesus so much for this ministry. It has helped me so, so much. Its a. Blessing to be able to hear the true word of our living God, Jesus being discussed

    What has gone wrong with the Church of Christ? How is it that the world which God rescued of from, we run back to it like dogs to their own vomit? Why can’t the body of Christ say Jesus you are sufficient for me?

    Proverbs 26:11 KJV

    As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.

    2 Peter 2:20-22 KJV

    For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

    John 15:19-20 KJV

    If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

    Celebrating being rebellious! Are you kidding me????? All you have to hear is the words coming from there mouths and there actions tells you who they exactly serve, Mammon! Anything that’s going to bring them fame and money they’re going. 1 John 2:16 tells us who this is: ” For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. IT IS NOT OF THE FATHER, PEOPLE!! Thank you again my brothers for showing us the TRUTH!!

    After watching this, a question was brought to my mind. The clip showing American Idol judge gene Simmons telling the youth pastor that he would have problems with his ministry if he sang pop music, made me think was God using gene simmons? Does God use sinners (unrepentant sinners) to talk to His people? Or to warn His people? I know that sounds strange and I cannot think of any biblical example of this happening except maybe rahab, which was a bit different.

  5. KENNETH

    God Bless you Pastor Craig and Brother Tetaun. May the Good Lord continue to bless you as you keep spreading the truth and opening peoples eyes.

    Absolutely spectacular show…as always!
    I thank God for EX Ministries and for the life changing information I get. I am only disheartened that so many people are lost and will continue to defend their favorite “christian celebrity” no matter what!

  7. Shawn

    This episode was really powerful. I learned a lot that wasn’t readily apparent to me. I agree with Terrence’s comment as well as something that was mentioned in the video. The different things going on in these churches are beyond belief. When the lady at Empowerment Temple was talking about the people from the club, Common’s expression said it all. He believes that this “Christian” thing is a sham, and he is there just to promote his true cause and get that money. It is sad but true; most are trying to market to “church folk” because the church will spend money on anything that has a Jesus stamp or approved by these charlatans. Deitrick Haddon was just promoting himself, and he said a lot when he said that God made us all different and you have to express yourself in your uniqueness. The interviewer (who appears to be gay) AMENS the comment and marches on.

    We indeed to need to distinguish between the apostate church and the REAL church, which is alive and well.

    I wonder if any of these people really understand the damage they are doing. It was like in that American Idol clip Minaj for a moment was like either trying to express some deeper need for help or affirming that people want to feel good without repentance. Simmons was basically trying to tell this guy that he was getting into more than he bargained for and that he should turn around quickly. There are so many people out there looking for the truth, and it is being muddied up (on the surface level) by these perpetrators in the body of Christ. Lord help us and help this (and other) ministries around the world to draw closer to You and to point others towards You and away from these wicked things.

    Great Message! Keep doing what you’re doing! Glad to know that there are some true Christians in the world sharing the truth and not watering it down! :-)

    @TY are you forgetting Balaam the sorcerer? God used him, and the talking ass/donkey. He was told to curse the people but God said no, and he blessed them three times. Even though he went back to his ways, he still did what God told him to do. The king didn’t like it not one bit. Numbers chpters 22-25. The needed up part about this is pple began to trust balaam because God used him (4 a season) and then he assisted the enemy into leading Gods pple in to idolatry. Because he still wanted that money, a sorcerer indeed. When i think about this is also shows that God can def use anyone he chooses to give a message but we have to trust in the one who sent them God and not so much the messenger. We can love pple but we still hve to be careful with what God has given us.Amen. He says guard ur heart with all diligence. And this comes from praying and devotion. Love u EX Ministries keep shining the light. Blessed to be a blessing!

    Wow this message was PHENOMENAL!!! I was so blessed… Man I had to repent myself for watching R&B divas and Mary Mary.. To be honest when I did watch I could tell it was negatively effecting my spirit. I felt like I had to detox by reading the Word. This was what I need to hear to draw the line.. I am so thankful for this message honestly… God Bless you all..

    Thanx EXTV for such a REALITY-heads up. Funny, earlier this year I used MaryMary’s show for my bible study class. Sooo heartening for me to discover that my students, who are seekers of the Truth, were able to give me scriptural back-up for all the inconsistencies they saw in that show….that this christian family (w/ small “c”) broke so many of our Christian basic tenets. Considering MaryMary started out as my “guilty pleasure”, thinking I would see the STRUGGLE they have trying to stay on the Straight & Narrow, only to discover the opposite is true…that there was NO struggle at all. As I told my class, and as EXTVers seem to know, we the true Christians are becoming the Hated. But if the world hates us, then we can be assured we are on the right side, for Jesus said that we would be persecuted and hated just as He was (and still is). I would rather be Hated than have the world think I am just like them. Continue to preach, in and out of season!

    I have to say thank you for much clarification on the reality shows and much verification as to why I’m not drawn to any of them, especially the so-called christian ones. But to see that Gene Simmons was trying to talk that silly youth pastor out of the audition was the icing on the cake. For that silly youth pastor to completely miss the message for him is a call for Christians to know the Word and most importantly, believe in Christ and keep his commandments.

    We have no business with that industry or even being in it and we certainly cannot change it for our own desires. We can’t light up the dark by becoming the darkness itself. It’s never worked that way.

  13. Marlon

    Great show, I had to watch this twice to really understand everything. I really feel sorry KiKi Sheard, instead of being a Godly woman, you want to follow Beyonce of all people, sad. Also, with Mali Music’s agent, she said he used to be “Gospel” now he’s an Inspirational artist (reminded me of Gospel Music episode) from when he signed with Akon at one point, I knew his music was a no go zone.

  14. Markius

    lol he said “the devil is trying to tell the believer not to do it” lol that was a great video and along with the scriptures brought out well.

  15. XAVIER G. BAILEY

    CRAIGE,TETAUN AND THE WHOLE STAFF OF EX MINISTRIES- DONT EVER APOLOGIZE FOR TEACHING AND PREACHING THE TRUTH OF THE WORD OF GOD!!! GOD IS USING YOU GUYS IN A MIGHTY WAY! TO FEED GOD’S PEOPLE WITH KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING JUST AS THE FATHR INSTUCTS US AS LEADERS IN THE BODY OF CHRIST. THE PROBLEM IS AS WITH ANY PEOPLE,COMPANY OR ORGANIZATION~~~~~LEADERSHIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WICKED,EVIL,UNGODLY,UNHOLY,DISOBEDIENT&REBELLIOUS LEADERSHIP ALWAYS DESTROYS AND FESTERS MORE OF THE SAME, IT STARTED WITH LUCIFER THEN ADAM THEN ALL OTHER S WHO DEFY THE MOST HIGH GOD!!! GOD WILL DEAL WITH THEM ACCORDING TO THE ERROR OF THEIR WAYS!!!! BE BLESSED AND STAY ON COURSE WITH THE HOLY WRITTEN WORD OF GOD!!!!

  16. Lebogang

    A deep sadness settled over me as I watched people unreservedly make the unabashedly ungodly their plum line instead of the One who gave all for their ransom, and then say they do all that to represent Him. Since when does the ambassador of one kingdom take on the character of an enemy kingdom in order to represent his native kingdom? How will anyone recognise to whom he belongs?

    Did no-one ever tell them that people never catch what you say you have, they but what you actually have? ‘Make the tree good or make the tree bad…’ or more to the point, ‘fresh water and brackish water cannot come from the same source’ Who’s word are they reading?

    We really need to pray for the fear of the Lord. There is nothing else for it

  17. Mimi

    I pray that body of Christ gets delivered from the obsession of television in general. As Pastor Lewis said in his Estranged Believers series “It’s time to get unplugged from the matrix”. We spend too much time channeling evil spirits, thoughts, and ideas that Satanists send us through the “media” or medium we call television. Besides, reality tv is a form of voyeurism, which is somewhat creepy when you spend your life watching & following someone else live their sinful life. This Reality TV episode was beyond truth. I’m walking out my deliverance from being a tv channeler or tv surfer. I’ve been cable free for a little over a year, and barely watch tv at all. It wasn’t easy at first but it was definitely worth it, and my spiritual discernment is much keener. I am VERY THANKFUL to the EX Ministries crew for exministries.tv; I believe that shows such as this are what multimedia should’ve been made for. And thank you for delving into this issue which is a guilty pleasure for too many.

    Lastly, yes this was a bit off topic. I urge you to challenge yourself today, turn off the tv and spend more time with Jesus, go workout, call yo mama, do something else! And remember: you may be watching these entertainers, but they ain’t thinking ’bout you! Your views only stimulate their egos, and add dollars to their pockets. Free yo’ self!

  18. Patrick C. Williams

    I think its really sad when the enemy has to tell believers that the music life aint what they want.
    Things have gotten really crazy! Thank the Lord for you EX Ministries! Don’t ever stop reproving & rebuking
    and shining the light of the gospel on this ungodly mess. We in the body of Christ need this ministry more than ever, even if some won’t admit it… Be Blessed!

  19. Darla

    I don’t care what these people professed to be……….. they don’t know Christ, they don’t want Christ, and they certainly don’t represent Christ in any way! Anyone following these wicked people should check themselves as well. Kim Burrell Irks me to the HIGHEST DEGREE! GOD SPEWED THESE FOLK OUT A LONG TIME AGO!

  20. Contending For the Faith

    The Church is so far from Gods original intent. Not that I consider these individuals the church they are trying to hijack the church. We must ask for the Old Paths. Its a dangerous time if you dont have the Holy Ghost of God. Lets pray for the true men of God to lift up their voice and speak for ..

    “And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.” Luke 16:8 KJV

    This scripture came to me as I saw the clip on Gene Simmons.
    Imagine a son of Satan warning a “Christian” (Duhhh?) Youth Pastor that he, in effect was in the wrong place.
    Embarrassing! and another judge had a laugh! Where’s this “Pastor’s” wisdom?

    Why is there so much dumbness among “Christian”?? people both on and off the pulpit?
    The monetary agenda of the pulpit pimps makes some logic though wicked but it’s amazing how many
    Christians in the audience anywhere or in the pew are not questioning anything!

    So many are entertainment fanatics! becoming mind controlled robots swept into the Anti-Christ’s control.

    This weekend I actually got threatened on my laptop that I would get a virus for trying to view Adamantbelievers.com! Before that my car was deliberately damaged! Twice this year! and I’ve been a
    good driver for the past 35 years!
    We are hated like Jesus was when we follow Him. “All that shall live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.” II Tim. 3:12 KJV
    Genuine Christianity is not for the faint hearted nor the compromiser..

    Thanks for being a source of encouragement EX Ministries.

  22. rebecca

    God bless the EXministries group!!! Let them cuss you out if the must but the truth you tell and the truth is what we want to know!! It is only the ones who do wrong that will feel convicted! You guys have played such a crucial role in my deliverance! Thank you for being the Lords vessel!!

  23. Janet

    Thank you for what you do. It gets so discouraging watching this happen right before our eyes. I had gotten so disheartened but I’m glad to see someone else who sees the same things.
