It hasn’t even aired yet, but Lifetime’s upcoming reality show “Preach” is receiving negative feedback on social media.

According to, the series centers around the lives of female apparent prophetesses – Belinda Scott (Cleveland Heights, Ohio); Taketa Williams (Columbus, Ohio); Linda Roark (Trenton, Ohio); and Kelly Crews (Cleveland, Ohio) – while highlighting their work as women who supposedly interpret the will of God.

In addition, the site mentioned that the women would mentor protégés as they “attempt to teach them how to carry on the gift.”

“Preach” is the latest in a string of reality shows that showcase a particular aspect of Christianity. Among those are TLC’s “The Sisterhood,” which was cancelled in 2013 after one season) and Oxygen’s “Preachers of LA,” was on the receiving end of criticism from Bishop T.D. Jakes and Kirk Franklin. While the “Preachers of LA spin-off, “Preachers of Detroit” has garnered lackluster ratings, Lifetime’s “Preachers’ Daughters” has managed to stick around for three seasons.

As it stands now, reaction to “Preach” isn’t anything to be proud of. Users on Twitter and Facebook have issued predominantly negative thoughts on the show. Adding to that are Christian leaders, Gospel artists and regular churchgoers who have voiced frustration, disappointment and outrage on “Preach.”

“Preach” is set to premiere June 5 on Lifetime. To see the trailer for the show, check out the video trailer/promo below and weigh in with your thoughts on whether “Preach” will be a hit or a miss:

    We Are Under the New Testament! The Old Testament Serves as a Reference! Christ said Upon This Rock I Will Build My Church ( My is Plural Meaning Christ Has 1 Church; Church of Christ). Baptist, Catholic, Methodist and all the rest are man made religions. John did the Baptizing, he was not a baptist.

    Mathew 16:18

      So… who went around and took dictation from all those characters and wrote those two different books? And how do you know them to be true?

    I know that I will not be watching it…all they are doing is the same thing Jim & Tammy Baker did and not far from what the 700 Club is doing today.

    Who created the dinosaurs and when? We know they existed (find fossilized remains and eggs every year) and that they DID NOT roam the earth with man (mankind would have been food for the carnivores). To boot, these fossils are millions of years old, yet most religions concede the earth to be 6,000 to 10,000 years old.

  4. If you are REALLY a prophet start from the ground up. I’m sure your neighborhood could benefit from your wisdom . . . (sarcasm). Oh, no money in that, Gotcha!

    I believe God speaks to women just as he does men. There are some AWESOME female preachers and teachers out there that can not be denied. The over the top theatrics is what makes this show unappealing and that much harder for women to have a voice in ministry. Too many men AND women feel that women should be seen and not heard in ministry and that’s very unfair and downright oppressive!

      So…all the scripture about women being silent in the church and submissive to men means nothing to you? I mean, its the whole Bible or nothing, “Church Girl”. Or its hypocritical, ficticious bullsh!t.

      I think there should be a limit or line drawn on what is allowed on TV, but then again, it’s all about the almight dollar.

    If people read and studied their Bible as we are instructed to, they would know Women cannot absurd authority over Man. God says women are not to Preach, and they are not no prophet.
