What about not judging? Granted, we do have to have checks and balances, but when are we granted permission to check the speck in our brothers eye? After we have pulled the log out of our own eye. I would say in order to keep from crossing that fine line of playing God and passing judgement, that we do the things we know we are to do, and pray for our brothers and sisters, because all of the investigations in the world cannot bring about a repentive heart. Only the Holy Spirit can do that.

Hi Anonymous,

About judging... this is a really simple issue. There are experts in the field of accountability, such as . They have guidelines for the Board of Directors, fundraising, etc. Hagee has a major ministry, per revenue. He knows of this, yet refuses any and every kind of oversight. Three of four Board members are family members, and that is pathetic for anyone who knows even the basics of nonprofit management. As a minister, he is called to be "beyond reproach" per biblical teaching, and he's doing the opposite; refusing accountability.

Some examples of ministries that are managed extremely well, and are role models, include Focus on the Family and Coral Ridge Ministries. You can find their tax returns at (you need to sign-up with their free, basic registration). Please be a good steward and look up and study these things. There are a few crooks out there asking for money in the name of God. Why be irresponsible?

I acknowledge that Hagee's ministries do much good, but his show of greed and mismanagement are a scandal and cancer in the body of Christ.

Just my thoughts, using my freedom of speech to express my opinion.
