Crooked Televangelists More Outside Of God's Will Than Retirees

In an appearance on Kenneth Copeland's broadcast, Evangelical Historian David Barton claimed that retirement is not a Biblical concept.

Before condemning a concept because it might not be explicitly authorized in Scripture, shouldn't one try to live up to those that actually are?

For example, in regards to the purveyors of errant doctrine such as Kenneth Copeland, shouldn't Barton come out from among him and be ye separate?

God might not have intended human beings to retire.

However, it's probably a safe assertion that the Deity is more peeved about ministers that manipulate their congregations and viewing audiences through outlandish religious claims into donating gobs of money to finance the preacher's swanky lifestyle.

However, that apparently didn't prevent Barton from appearing on the broadcast of an infamous huckster like Kenneth Copeland.
