A little over a week ago major Christian news networks like the Christian Post started reporting the death of Jan Crouch, the wife of Paul Crouch and co-founder of TBN. While I do not approve of the TBN theology, philosophy, or routine tax evasion, I do want to recognize that Jan Crouch was a Christian and real believer in Christ. At age 78 she had a stroke and unfortunately went on to be with our creator.
While I remember her most for her many extravagant hair cuts, I believe most will have a different memory. For those who follow the TBN preaching and the Word of Faith preachers they will be mourning the death of Mrs. Crouch. For those on the other end of the isle it is more likely that she will be remembered for extravagant spending and a lavish life style supported by donations from Christian viewers around the world.
