Richard Roberts of Oral Roberts Ministries needs our financial support. His nightly broadcast The Place for Miracles has been cut to 1/2 hour because of insufficient funds. I urge all of you to go online and support this man of God, who with his father Oral, has served for almost 100 years. Your generosity will be greatly appreciated and rewarded. Your most generous gift is necessary to keep the word on television. It is better to give than receive. You can consider this your love offering for the week. Thank you in advance.

You should have more respect for men who serve God. Pastor RW Schambach. Bishop Benny Hinn and Pastor Andrew Womack all had people raised from the dead in their presence. I am sending $ 750 to Richard Roberts personally. You ought to be obedient to God and give and God will bless you 10 fold, maybe 100 fold. It is written.

The Bible says we must give 10% at a "minimum" and go from there.So an extra $750 to Richard Roberts is in line with scripture I think.We all must serve these men who are like modern day apostles who need our prayers and financial support. We give honor and substance where it is due. The televangelists are God's elite and must be treated as such. If we must sacrifice, then so be it, so that all of the needs of God's Apostles will be met. I too will give an additional $750 and $ 750 from you (sir) in Van Buren so you can start your path to obedience.

Other allegations against Roberts include claims he used university funds to pay for his daughter's trip to The Bahamas by providing the university jet and billing other costs to the school, maintained a stable of horses on campus and at university expense for the exclusive use of his children, regularly summoned university and ministry staff to the Roberts house to do his daughters’ homework, remodeled his house at university expense 11 times in the past 14 years, allowed the university to be billed both for damage done by his daughters to university-owned golf carts and acquired a red Mercedes convertible and a white Lexus SUV for his wife Lindsay through ministry donors.[15][16] Roberts responded by saying, "This lawsuit ...is about intimidation, blackmail and extortion."[15].

Richard Roberts, a former president of Oral Roberts University, was released early Tuesday morning from the Tulsa County Jail after being picked up on a DUI complaint.

According to an arrest and booking report, Roberts, 63, was driving along the Creek Turnpike when an OHP trooper clocked his Mercedes going 93mph in a 65mph zone.  The trooper pulled Roberts over along US 169 near 71st street around midnight. 

A report from the Tulsa Co. Jail indicates the trooper smelled a strong odor of alcohol and administered a horizontal gaze sobriety test but Roberts was unable to follow directions, according to the trooper.  The report says Roberts was taken to the Jenks Police Department where he submitted to a breathalyzer test and blew .11, which is over the legal limit of .08.

Roberts was arrested just after midnight Tuesday and taken to Jenks police department, then he was transferred to the Tulsa County Jail and booked by 2:45am on DUI and speeding complaints.  He was released from jail on $1,100 bond just after 5:45 Tuesday morning.  A black Range Rover picked him up from jail.

Roberts' father, ORU founder Oral Roberts, would have been 94 years old Tuesday.  Oral Roberts died in 2009.

ORU released the following statement:
"Our prayers go out to Richard and Lindsay Roberts and their entire family as they face this life challenge. May God's grace help them as they work towards healing."

Richard Roberts is amongst the elite we as Christians must serve and be obedient. He may have made an error but who is to cast the first stone. You, sir , must realize that pastors and men of God such as Richard Roberts, Jimmy Swaggart are the chosen elite that command our respect and our finances as they go about doing God's work. If you attend church the Bible say so. If you give a full tithe then your offering to Pastor Roberts can be a freewill offreing or love offering such as mine are. This is the will of, God. Amen.
Amen

Richard Roberts, like our local pastors, are the chosen elite whom we as believers must support with our prayers and our financial resources. He made have made an error but who shall cast the first stone.?? Do not judge and remember if you have given a full tithe then any contributions to Richard Roberts can be a freewill or lover offering , just like mine are. It is written in the Bible. Amen
Richard Roberts, like our local pastors, is one of those elite whom we serve with our prayers and finances, too. Everyone can error. Give a freewill or love offering to RR in addition to your regular tithe this week. Ask your church to take up an offering and send to Tulsa. It is written. Amen..

All televangelists are fraud. Either pure fraud or God for profit. Even Billy Graham (whom is undoubted a good man) and his family derive close to 2 million in compensation and benefits. Is that a family working for God??? I dont think so. And our local churches: Salvation is free but one must be "obedient" and "honest" and give 10% to the church. It is a requirement for 10% tithe. Sounds fishy to me. If one explains that one cannot afford 10% then the church will say "austerity" and get your finances in order and your FIRST priority is a 10% tithe. And a 10% tithe is the "minimum" amount. We all must give more. It is obedience to God. And if one says they disagree with the way the money is spent the church's response is if 2/3 of the congregation agrees then one must in compliance. Right???
The church wants indoctrinated little "yes men" and robots, totally brainwashed to serve up financially to the church to the absolute max. I aint that and I dont think the Bible really says that. The whole thing about money is s shakedown.
