BIBLE MYSTERY #2

Can you guess the riddle of this bible mystery, the second in a series of 4? Psalms 93:4 (KJV)

WHO AM I?

THE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE BELIEVE WHAT I SAY,
    THOUGH OFTEN I LIE AND I TEACH THE WRONG WAY.
MOST ARE TOO BLINDED TO EVER SUSPECT ME;
    THEY GIVE ME THEIR MONEY SO I LIVE IN LUXURY.
IT IS SO AMAZING HOW MUCH I CAN SIN;
    YET WHEN I SPEAK OF THE OF SOULS I WILL WIN,
AND SHED A FEW TEARS WITH A “PRAISE GOD” THROWN IN,
    THEY SEEM TO FORGET WHAT A BAD GUY I’VE BEEN.
THEY POUR IN THEIR OFFERINGS AGAIN AND AGAIN,
    SO I WILL PRAY FOR THEM OR SEND THEM A PIN.
I SHOW THEM THE STARVING, THE NAKED, THE SHUT‑IN;
    I TELL THEM THEIR TAX-SAVING OFFERING WILL HELP THEM.
THEY WANT TO BE HEALED, SO I SEND THEM A LETTER;
    IF THEY SEND ME MONEY, THEY’RE SURE TO GET BETTER.
I SEND THEM A BIBLE, A RECORD, A BOOK;
    THE PRICE THAT THEY PAID, THEY REALLY GOT TOOK.
BUT THEY NEVER STOP TO CONSIDER THESE THINGS;
    SO I AND THOSE LIKE ME CAN LIVE JUST LIKE KINGS,
“PLAYING” THEIR EMOTIONS WHEN “SO-AND-SO” SINGS;
    WILL KEEP US IN “BLESSINGS” TIL ETERNITY BRINGS
TO LIGHT THE DECEPTIONS AND EVIL I’VE DONE;
    AND THOSE WHO HAVE “PAID” ME TO HAVE ALL THE FUN,
WILL STAND THERE BESIDE ME TO HEAR WHAT IS DUE.
    THE LORD UP IN HEAVEN WILL TELL US HIS VIEW:
“DEPART FROM ME, PHONIES – I NEVER KNEW YOU.”
    SO IF AS YOU READ THIS, YOU THINK OF A FEW
FALSE PREACHERS JUST LIKE THIS, THERE ARE OTHERS TOO;
    THE SCRIPTURES BELOW WILL SOON GIVE YOU A CLUE,
PLEASE STUDY AND LET GOD YOUR SPIRIT RENEW.
