Spellbinder…Preacher’s trappings of greed and lust…

Spellbinder...today as yesterday

Excerpt from Spellbinder, Harold Robbins blockbuster novel exposing the world of pay TV preachers……

“…..He was sitting on his bunk, the Bible still unopened on his lap when he heard the door of the van close behind them. He rose to his feet and began to undress slowly. So much was happening. It was as if he was caught in a tide that he could not control, a tide taking him to a distant shore that he could not see.

         He stretched out naked on the bed and propped his single pillow behind his head, and turned on the small reading light on the wall next to him. He picked up the Bible and, opening it to the First Psalm, began to read, mouthing the words softly to himself         

    Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of scorners.

  But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted…

 

Preacher thought about the words….Was it not written that whatsoever he shall doeth shall prosper…..Could it be that he was deluding himself? …..

Spellbinder by Harold Robbins….See how “Preacher”, a man of God, succumbs to the trappings of wealth and fame……..
