I never cared for Tammy Fay and Jim Baker. I felt they were fake–they were in the “ministry” for the money.

I remember one time I flipped to their show and one of them was celebrating a birthday. He or she(I can’t remember which one it was) received an expensive music box. I thought it was too extravagant and inappropriate for a show of its nature–especially considering where they were getting their money–people living on a fixed income who thought they were giving to God.

But one day as I commuted with my sister to my summer job a long time ago when I was still in college I came across this scripture:

Philippians 1:18 (New International Version)

18But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice.

From that moment on I rejoiced because while I didn’t care for them, they did preach Christ.
