Dallas, TX (BlackNews.com) - A called was received from World Changers Church International located in College Park, Georgia headed by prosperity leader Rev. Dr. Creflo Dollar, and they have allegedly threatened TV talk Show Host Reuben Armstrong.
Armstrong, who received a call from the church phone with several people switching the phone from one person to another, feels that his life is in danger. According to Armstrong's phone records that are posted on his website (www.reubenarmstrongshow.com) the call was from the office of World Changers International and was received on August 28th 2007 at 12:13 p.m. (CST).
During a press conference Armstrong and his staff said, "When the call came in, the members sounded very, very, angry, saying they are aware their pastor is misleading the Body of Christ, but we are going to harm you if you published the book, Snakes in the Pulpit." According to the phone bill the conversation lasted for 24 minutes. Armstrong said "I was trying to find out why they want to harm me and my family." A spokesperson advised the media that Mr. Armstrong has moved to a secured area for his safety.
Snakes in the Pulpit has been causing a lot of controversy where some of the National Prominent leaders are getting very concerned and involved.
The book Snakes in the Pulpit will focus on church issues and pastors such as Bishop Eddie Long, Joel Osteen, Creflo Dollar and T.D. Jakes.
The number of megachurches featured on National TV and radio has spawned a new type of celebrity: megapastors. These men have risen in stature and gained the public's trust as irreproachable men of God as their churches have attracted hundreds of thousands of members and millions of viewers and listeners.
But are these men, their methods and intentions really beyond reproach? One man, Reuben Armstrong, will shed the light on this controversial issue in the upcoming book, Snakes in the Pulpit.
