Sad when man comes across as a god

This was sad to hear that Nick Hackeney thought he was god — he is/was no more human than me. Like Annette said, God gave us a head to think with and, in lacking wisdom, we are to come to God and ask, and He will give it to us as He promises—man’s promises are empty. Also, the test of a prophet are if/when his prophesies come TRUE.

Nah

I’m quitting a couple episodes in. Agree with those saying NBC and Josh are jumping on an easy-to-sensationalize story. And the sensational part is that “White male christian leaders brainwashed Christian women and had affairs with them; one ended up taking the life of his wife ‘in the name of God’.” Okaaay….actually all murderers are twisted in their own way, religiously or otherwise, and this series could’ve been one episode. Mankiewicz insists on harping every five minutes on the fact that these were “false prophets” who “said God wanted (the affairs)”. Even the series title is just click-bait. Religion sells, I guess?
