Black Church, Inc.: Prophets for Profit (2014)
49min · Documentary · 20 June 2014
Black Church, Inc. attempts to justify the dichotomy of the profits of prophets. It compares pastors who are seen as activists such as Rev. Taharka Robinson, Rev. Al Sharpton and Pastor Raphael Warnock with pastors who are criticized for being celebrity brands such as Rev. Eddie Long, Rev. Creflo Dollar and Rev. T.D. Jakes. The documentary takes a deep dive into controversial issues clouding the church including "love offerings"(cash payments given to ministers), financial abuse and the deification of the mega-church pastor all while asking... is prayer-for-profit moral?
