I won't dispute that. Everything you just said is true.
That being said, they are working hard to change the education part of that paradigm. Education has become one of their greatest focuses. They have purchased quite a bit of land and already have the plans in place for building to begin for a permanent VO university on the scale of a Azusa Pacific.
They state at [www.victoryoutreach.org
] that, "Currently there are over 6,000 students who are attending the Victory Education Training Institute worldwide. The school has thousands of alumni who are impacting their communities as pastors, teachers, evangelists, missionaries, business leaders, coaches, law officers, computer programmers, accountants, and in many other walks of life. Choose from various areas of study – from business to biblical studies and more."
The formalized goal of the Institute in the next 5 years is to be a fully accredited college and reach an enrollment worldwide of 15,000 students.
We might just all be surprised where this all going. I know Sonny jr. and has a different personality than his father. I believe he will replace his father when his father eventually steps down. Sonny Jr. has had a good Godly upbringing, is well rounded, much more mainstream, never been into drugs, etc... I personally hope the combination of top leadership change and mainstream education to the masses in VO brings those much needed changes.
