    This interview was 100% correct. I was very offended by what took place on TBN with Steve Harvey. Disappointment on the crowd and on Donnie. Lord help us. Too many Christians walking by the flesh and in ignorance. Thank you exministries for opening up the eyes and ears of all of us.

    Wow, thank you for exposing this. We as black people do let people who are on TV influence us. I always was leary about Steve Harvey and wondered why Steve H. hasn’t grown as a Christian, and now I see it is because he doesn’t want to. Why does the Body of Christ need Steve H, whatever happened to Johnathan Slocumb and other christian comedians? Did we just totally throw them away?

  • Pastor Jimmy

    I have been saying this for years and Pastor G.Craige Lewis I give God the glory for Him allowing you to continue to be an exposer of sin. S Harvey needs a real deliverence and be filled with the Holy Ghost.TBN has always been pulling the black church into foolishness. Praying for you.

    We all fall short, but the difference is he’s not TRYING to live right. Steve is currently married to the woman he cheated on his wife with, and stole that book from someone else in the 90’s. Proof of it is on youtube of this woman’s interview from the 90’s with the SAME TITLE. Not only that, but he does not speak for most men in the now generation, he hasn’t had any education on it or biblical study on relationships, so why buy the book? Steve is a con artist, and Katt Williams isn’t godly either, but called him out. I don’t support him and he has always pimped christians. Too bad people are just getting hip to it.

    I am just so glad that I am not going crazy. I talk about this stuff all the time to christians and they look at me like i’m nuts!! I was involved in rap groups, drinking, and partying before I got saved four years ago I was never raised in church and I thought once you got saved that everybody that went to church all stood for being holy? Boy was I wrong this is just crazy how we as christians allow people to just mock god like this and think it is okay great job exministries for riding out on these clowns!!

    All I can say is THANK YOU!!!!! When I saw the ‘interview’ I was shocked to see Steve Harvey on TBN. I thought to myself, ‘what is HE doing on TBN?!?!?!?’ And then when the crocodile tears started, I just turned the channel because it was all phony. I had an argument with my cousin, because she insisted he was sincere. I told her it was all hollywood schmoozing of the people and if you listen to what he actually said, he told on himself that he is not living a Christ centered life. Trying to make the argument of people who ‘know God’ but make money a different way than we do? What kind of justification is that of living a sinful life? TBN has gone down, so far down with this one. I just want you to know that we are not all sleep Pastor Craig. Many of us still believe in holiness and the straight and narrow.

    I just wanted to let you know you are truly a blessing to the body of Christ in this hour! All glory and honor goes to God for exministries and the word of truth that is always being delivered. I am a former holy-hip-hopper and in the next few weeks I am going to be sharing my testimony on my ministries (www.teenyess.wordpress.com) website about how I was introduce to this ministry back in 2005, and delivered instantly by God from generational curses and deception and how the glories of God followed. After watching the Truth about hip-hop videos, I have had a renewed fire ignited by God every since. I thought I was on fire for God before, but through exministries God showed me how I was being ignorant to Satan devices and how we all have a mandate from God to stand for holiness and righteousness. “Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free”! Does not Gods Word states this in John 8:32!! Come on lets get free people! God Bless you Pastor Craige and keep fighting the good fight of faith. I will keep you and your family lifted up in my prayers.

    This message is true. But why instead of talking about it we should pray and fast and talk to the people directly and get them filled with the holy ghost that way we wouldnt have this problem and have to broadcast all the podcasts websites DVD etc….

    Darrius Williams,

    God Bless You. You automatically assume that people have NOT spoken to these guys. You must remember, Steve Harvey chooses to continue his foul mouth, sinful lifestyle in spite of God’s truth. Donnie McClurking continues to keep homosexuals around him and in his church in spite of claiming deliverance. He even traveled with an open homosexual pastor along with Barack Obama. They traveled from city to city together. You cannot just pray and hope for the best. God called prophets and preachers to teach against sin and openly rebuke open sin. These guys chose to go on national tv promoting this foolishness, so we cannot go hide in a room somewhere and pray. Once we pray, we are to act. Paul and the rest of God’s men challenged this kind of stuff openly. So, maybe God has called you to be the hidden prayer warrior, but he has called us to openly deal with open sin. And FYI, we have had ministers go to these guys in the past and have almost gotten the finger from these larger than life superstars we are talking about. Don’t be naive. These guys are for fame and money and will not hear lowly preachers like us. Just like they didn’t hear Jesus because he was just a carpenter, they will not hear us. Wake up my brother.

    G Craige, God bless you, God bless you, God bless you. May God’s face shine upon you and lift your countenance. May you find your comfort and sustenance only in the Lord. May you not be weary in well-doing but continue to trust in the Lord.

    Thank you so much for being faithful to the Lord and to his calling upon your life, pastor. I can’t tell you how much your messages are affecting my life and helping me to live for God’s glory.

    God bless!

    I’m not bordeline…I’m a new creature…”now unto HIM who is able to keep you from FALLING ( Donnie needs to read that then stop singing his We fall down song) and present you faultless..Don’t insult the GIFT of Salvation by calling me borderline…nope I reject that!!!

    I have challenged Craige for the last 3 years, just following what he preaches, learning, and trying to find one thing the was not in the word of according to what Jesus wants us to do, and i cant find one thing that watched, read, or listed to, that is not by God word. Yes some times its not how ‘people’ want it but its the TRUTH, the same reason Jesus died He spoke things that hurt feelings.

    There are LACK of prophets in these days. Few are left. Craige is following Jesus with all his heart, and if i can only have half of the devotion and dedication that Carige has with our lord and savior. He is a true man of God. He has showed me the truth as disciples are supposed to now me and many others are free, God is still working through people.

    I was telling someone just last week how stupid we really are. Why in the world would the christians at megafest be laughing while he’s teasing them.Mary Mary marrying unsaved men.These people have so many excuses why they are doing and living the way they are.I was told by a saved person bad stuff about you g.craige.That you are not suppose to touch god’s annionted.People dont want truth revealed to them.KEPT UP THE GOOD WORK,I AGREE 100%.

    The Steve Harvey interview was one of the most disturbing things I’ve seen in a long time. And actually, my issue was not particularly with Steve Harvey (whom I believe is largely uninformed). Rather, my issue is with how he and his celebrity are being PIMPED by TBN and the corrupt Christian “establishment”. A total and complete mess…

    Also, as for qualifications for an elder/minister, many people overlook the most basic requirement of being a Holy Spirit-filled Christian, exhibiting the fruit described in Galatians 5.

    I have listened to some of the podcasts and also own a few of the Truth behind hip hop videos. I am now raising my thirteen year old niece who do not have and was not taught the same christian morals that I stand for. I am noticing that the institutinal church is so jacked up it is sickening. I think that alot of what we are seeing today is because of the institutionalization of christianity. Once Christianity is institutionalized it becaomes a thing of the world. It is just another system (religious) of the world. Christians today have not accepted that they have been crucified with Christ and is now seated in heavenly places with him. This is not our home, but we behave as though it is. The “church” has been decieved into thinking that they have to compete with the world to win the world. That is a lie! Jesus who was from God had it all at his disposable if need be. There was really no competition for him on this earth but he came in lowliness. He never used the materials glory of this world to draw anyone. We need to pray for the souls of those that want to Know Christ but have been duped by religiousity of so called christian leaders.

    Brother Craige, I admit, at first I thought you were over the top but now I know you have seen some behind the scenes things that had not come out yet. Brother if there is anything about you I would improve upon, it would be, everytime you cite a fact….you should give the source. Many of us thinking minds would like to do our own research. God bless you and keep going!!!

  • Jajuan

    I just saw the testimony, and it made no sense to me what so even and it really ticked me off is the fact that they were didn’t do anything, but get emotional with his testimony instead of talking and trying to get his life or at least see where his heart at. All this is foolishness and I really hate to see the body of Christ allowing this to go on, and mess up so many people. It’s depressing and annoying

  • Bernard

    Brother lewis, there is a book that explains the science behind this talent issue you are preaching about. It most definitely supports your position. It is called “Outliers” by Malcolm Gladwell. It basically explains that no one is gifted. ITS ALL HARD WORK!! It takes about 10,000 hrs to perfect a skill and most anyone can do it!!!! Now of course, it is up to us if we use that skill for God or against him.

  • Alvin Sanders

    Brother Lewis, I saw the interview as well and became angry that a “christian” TV station would air something this,I had church folk telling me I was judging and we are all God’s children..The devil is a lie. I really became depressed and fearious when the interview was over. I’m a firm believer in Galatians 5:9 “A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough.

    Good information in the podcast but remember just a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down. Steve just needs to be under a good teacher, which is vital to believers at any stage especially for a baby in Christ. ..when I viewed the TBN videos on you tube he did mention that his learning came from his father who was not a believer.. so if this has been all you’ve known for years plus wouldn’t you say something off the hook too? lol.. he also stated that he needed advice and the only two people in the church he knew were too busy to help.. this is when he called Donnie Mcklurkin and he befriended him. Remember how it was when you first got saved? ..and hopefully we know a little more now than before right? Smile.

    Pastor Lewis, I am so grateful for your ministry. It is so refreshing to hear the truth being preached. It is so sad to see how The Body of Christ will be quick to defend these famous artists. On facebook I posted a comment saying that I didn’t get why everyone was so touched by the Steve Harvey interview- I said that I was shocked that he was allowed to come out with so many unbiblical comments, and not be corrected. Immediately I received messages that went something like this, “No one is perfect, no one can judge another, only God knows the heart”. I was just shocked that no one else was a little disturbed or uncomfortable with the interview. No one even agreed with me- You would have thought that I lied on him, I only repeated what he himself had already said about his own walk- We have to wake up church it’s getting out of hand.

    Thank you for revealing truth. I’ve learned so much from THE TRUTH BEHIND HIP HOP and your sermons. And this podcast was again revealing. I have been praying for God to show me truth and it’s amazing how and when those precious revelations arrive. Pastor Lewis you do remind me of John the Baptist, crying out in the wilderness……REPENT! Thank you Lord for your servant.

    Nov 2, 2009 at 12:13 am

    You guys are on point. Steve is a Fraud.

    Check out my Youtube channel to view all my video series about Steve Harvey. I EXPOSED his con game thoroughly in 2 video series. One series is 7 parts and another is 5 parts.

    Thanks G Craige Lewis for always standing for truth.I live in London and i can relate to everything you say.You are definitely my role model, even though am only 17 i have learnt alot from you and your Ministry.It has changed my outlook on Life completely.It’s hard to see truth in the media so it’s good to see that someone aint scared of standing.

    Praise God for brother G. Craig and exministries. I also saw this thing coming with Steve Harvey months ago. As soon as I saw his that he had a book coming out, I waited, got it, and read it. Not because I wanted to read it, but because I knew satan had an agenda for it. The Spirit told me to read it for research purposes (exministries drilled that into me) I knew that this book was going to be exalted in the Christian community. And look, it got the biggest endorsement from the largest Christian media source on the planet-TBN. I released a video on my blogsite -www.christradar.blogspot.com begging Christians to not read this book. Of course I waited until I read it first, so I could be intelligently informed and ready to avenge any defense other Christians would offer on Mr. Harvey’s behalf. And of course, I was attacked by many of my Christian family and friends. What is happening to the Body of Christ? Why are we so attracted to fame and fortune? Lord Help Us!!!

    TBN gave the people the “green light” after 90 days through Steve Harvey!!! What happened to after marriage. I couldn’t watch the interview in its entirety. It wasn’t an insult to me see him on TBN, I wasn’t shocked at all. But the “green light special”. We need to pray for our people that when someone like those that are taking and/or giving whatever platform to promote hell to Christians need to be stopped. Association by affiliations, that was nothing but evil communication.

    Nov 23, 2009 at 1:11 pm

    I think we should be pointing the finger at steve harvey. the question is what about this so called preacher donnie he never took steve to the sinners prayer.the bible says if you are ashamed of me before men i will be ashamed of you before my father in heaven.so the both of them just busted hell wide open.this is what is wrong with the church we have move so far from the word we dont know are up from down.2tim.2:15 we need to get back to studying the word. this is why i dont belong to a church right now to many crooks in the pool pit.the bible says the blind leading the blind will soon fall into a ditch.so if i fall im going to fall all by my self , not because one of these crooks lead me there.

    I stopped watching Christian television a long time ago, because it has been so commercialized. the Steve Harvey thing is just another reason that we need another avenue for Christian to watch, listen and read real Christian media. So Sad!

  • Elder Crocker

    Grace and peace my brother. Your voice is clear and I thank God in Christ Jesus, for you!! The interview was a complete joke and full of emotions with no anointing and power. If it was that anointed, Steve Harvey would have repented of his sins on TV!! But, when you have enablers like TD jakes and others, you dont mind playing jokes on the so called people of God. Real prophetic people know anointing and power!! Thank God for you and praying for you!!

    In Christ Jesus, your brother Elder EJE Crocker

    Steve Harvey is a hiprocrite he start his show off with his 12min intro about god then jumps right into the secular world. He cries he’s saved but it has not stop him from cussing at his shows you need to stop confusing the youth because they will think it’s alright for them to do the same.You can’t live for GOD and the devil.Mr. Harvey pick one.

    Minister Lewis, I think that this was a great interview. I believe that God opened my eyes to the truth about TBN a couple of years ago. I then stop watching and supporting this network. I went back and watched this show because that is exactly what it is. I could not even watch all of it I was so disgusted. The state of the body of Christ just grieves my spirit. Where are all the real Christians? We all need to take a stand. I know we are only seeing that which God said will happen, such as men will be lovers of themselves, but it still grieves my spirit. I thank God for truth. Again, great blog.

    I am so glad that I’m not the only person who feels this way about this whole Steve Harvey thing. I see so many black women in the church reading Steve Harvey’s book. First of all the book…I have skimmed through it, does not have any godly teachings in it. Doesn’t the word of God say…HE who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtain favor from the Lord. He’s teaching women how to hunt for a man. He tells women to wait 90 DAYS before having sex. We are supposed to wait until the wedding night to have sex. So he’s promoting pre-marital sex and fornication. The title itself ACT LIKE A LADY, THINK LIKE A MAN. As a man (or woman) thinketh, so is he/she. The reason why women are single is because they are switching roles. If you are a woman, you cannot think like a man. God created men and women differently. If you are a woman you think and act like a woman. That’s not a bad thing. Nowadays, people think a woman acting and thinking like a lady is equal to being a slave, or dizzy, or weak. I may be wrong, this is how I feel. Its time people stop sending these mixed messages into the body of christ. I’m just a 29 year old single mom trying to please God, I’m not perfect. I made mistakes too. People need to teach to single women….if you want a husband, wait on the Lord to send one…teach how to become better women.

    When steve harvey said during one of his comic performances “you are borderline too” I would not be shocked if a demon was speaking through him to say that. Let’s not be naive to the tricks of the enemy. Be sober and vigilant saints!!!!

  • ishmael mitchell

    I agree with all that has been said. Steve Harvey is a con. After seeing him on TBN, my wife and I went to his show in DC and he cursed something aweful. People were even walking out. He is a fraud, and so is Donnie McClurkin. I saw him ata concert in VA and found him to be painfully rude during his listening party aftewards,and so incredibly arrogant it was mind boggling. What is worse that them however, is the millions of blinded christians who send money to TBN and partner with idoits like Jakes and Osteen. We must wake up and realize that the world has never and will never give hundreds of millions of dollars to Christ or Holiness. If it hated Him it must hate those who come in his name.

  • cris

    hmmmm, steve said several times that he loves God just like I do, [speaking to the audience and host]and to that I say this can ONLY be true if I/the people & host live AS steve DOES in relation to sin and salvation.

    steve was NOT stopped when he made this comment, nor was he asked to explain what he meant by “the WAY YOU DO.” he does not love God the WAY THAT I DO, but I can only speak for myself.

    the question then is this; what “WAY” of loving God is he talking about? since steve is allowed to feel in agreement with the people and the host I guess I should be asking in what way are they all alike.

    I confess I am finding that there is becoming a great gulf between me and the modern day followers of the gospel.

    me thinks the earth is opening up for a great swallowing. whatcha think?

    One major problem in the usa is that americans feel god owes them an explanation for everything he does just as the president is accountable over decisions he makes . god is not a man. Preachers in the us do not want to risk criticism from the people.

    I was about to listen to this podcast and then it hit me, why should I be upset about Steve Harvey being on TBN?… THEY ARE TEACHING FALSE DOCTRINE THROUGH THEIR STATION’S NAME ALONE! I dunno what yall at ex ministries believe, but I HOPE and PRAY WE,(as in you and I) believe that there is ONLY ONE GOD and his name is JESUS! So this business of a Trinity and him being on their program is the least of my worries cuz its all false! Shouldn’t we be addressing that issue first?

    Mar 3, 2011 at 11:34 pm
