Warren [...] has repaid every dollar he has earned in the pulpit of Saddleback Church in Orange County, Calif., and pledged to give away 90 percent of his book royalties. He accepts no speaking fees and is not as reluctant as Osteen to criticize those who are less altruistic.
â€œThe opulent lifestyles of televangelists make me sick,â€ said Warren, of those ministries now under investigation. The scandals, he said, flow from the â€œprosperity gospelâ€ that many televangelists preach.
â€œSuccess in any area often creates a spirit of entitlement â€” â€˜I deserve thisâ€™ â€” that is the exact opposite of servant leadership,â€ Warren said.
