1 Timothy 6:10
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
Psalms 32:10
Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about.

To emphasise what a brother that recently emailed me about "Christian" celebrities, I myself am also very dubious of those that are of "celebrity" status, for The LORD Jesus Christ Himself was of no reputation.

Philippians 2:6
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

I have more respect for those that are Humbled and of no worth, that are teaching and preaching in the poorest regions of the World and at home, and serving the LORD not serving the dollar bill.
