I think you bring up some excellent points about itchy ear religions, comparing them to selecting junk food at the grocery store. There are a number of cult religions and wrong doctrines out there, and so-called "Christian" cults as well as much so-called Christian TV dispenses its fair share. Nice use of scripture in this. It could be a great devotional.

The one thing I would caution you on, however, concerns the mentioning of specific names of television and/or internet personalities, unless it is part of a lengthier expose. Not only does it raise too many questions that can't be fully answered within the confines of this word count, but the fact is, those preachers are tackling Biblical subjects that many pastors out there have failed to adequately address. That's one reason people look to outside sources for help, whether good or bad.

That said, I think your article is a good starting point for tackling this whole topic of spiritual junk food. I wish you the best here and look forward to reading more of your writings.
This is an interesting piece. You brought up quite a few things I hadn't heard of before. It's always good to make the reader think.

I noticed a few typos like aisle instead of isle and their instead of they're. I also cringed a bit when you started listing names. I've no idea if the things you've said are documented facts but it would be horrible if you opened yourself or FW to a potential lawsuit. People are so sue-happy these days.

I can feel the passion behind your words and can sense you have a great desire to get the word oh God out to as many people as possible. The Holy Spirit will use your words in ways you can't even begin to imagine and that's always an awesome thing. Nice job
