Poll reveals that Christians detest Christian TV
I AM a tad confused. DoersTV (motto: The Home of Christian Reality TV) has over 100,000 fans on Facebook, but a poll conducted by the broadcaster itself shows that most of them detested Christian television.
Chief Executive of DoersTV, Pastor David Wright, made this discovery after he conducted a poll of the channel’s Facebook 102,000 followers, and was “flabbergasted” by the results.
The vast majority said they hate Christian TV and do not watch it. Wright said that 90 percent of the feedback to his poll was negative.
Comments in the response posts indicated several major turn-offs when it comes to Christian TV:
• Too much begging for money and fundraising telethons
• False prosperity teachers manipulating people for offerings
• Boring and a lack of quality programming
• Lack of integrity of Christian leaders being broadcast
I kind of expected there would be those Christians who thought Christian TV was too boring or not relevant for the times, but I never would have imagined the disdain thousands of Christians have for Christian TV.
Unfortunately, the greed for money has replaced the need for ministry among many of our ministers and Christian TV networks. People are fed up with the lust for material things.
He said that an absence of integrity among pastors and leaders of today has played a major role in the negative perception of Christian TV.
We can’t have pastors indulging in sin and expect people not to be turned off.
