I looked up a well known evangelist and then followed the ‘people who looked up that also looked up this’ links. The list is not exhaustive but representative. It is sad to see how many names are on both sides of the table.
It is my deeply held opinion that anyone who purports to know scripture well enough that they are qualified to teach should know why they should not me naming a ministry after themselves. I understand the business reasons for naming a ministry after a person. The business reasons are sound and strengthen exponentially with the fame of the person. It is the spiritual reasons that are wrong and they do not become less wrong in a good cause.
This is not the sort of activity that you can stop by complaining. People who teach tend to have a very high opinion of their own opinions. You know that expression ‘it takes one to know one’. Well I’m one so I know. Just don’t write the check. With time the ministries who glorify Christ will prosper and the ones who glorify an individual will wither.
Feel free to send more examples Christian teachers and their ministries.
