    Occasionally I'll smoke a joint and watch her "Ramp" services on Saturday night. I'm not sure who the long-haired, Lynyrd Skynyrd looking guy is, but he "preaches" to a bunch of young, brainwashed true-believers. It's actually pretty frightening how he and Wheaton manipulate these poor young folks as they jump for jesus....literally. One day, as these young people make their way into the world, they'll need to be de-programmed so they're able to function in society-at-large.

    Karen Wheaton is surrendered to the Spirit of God and teaching the youth how to yield to Jesus Christ with all their hearts. When they worship and praise they do it all unto God, not to entertain others. They are getting into practice for when they worship bowed down before the throne of God. They are already bowing their hearts to Him in pure honor and devotion to God and God alone which is refreshing to see and causes me to worship Him with them and refreshes my spirit every time. All that we do, we are to do as unto THE LORD. It is Him who we'll spend eternity with so we might as well get into practice now. It is a renewing, restoring, rewarding experience to see Karen and the young people worshiping with their wbole heart. I am reminded all over again how much He loves me and I love Him. They help my heart to reach out and touch God and experince the joy of the Lord rise up in my spirit and leaves me rejoicing in Him and Him alone and so happy to see the youth learning to ...

    The stuck up girl when you were young who wouldn't even go to first base with someone unless they were made out of gold and platinum and going to Harvard, Stanford, or Yale (even if the fucker was dumb as dirt) always had a name like Karen Wheaton.

    Anyone with Discernment can sense the Lord's presence in this Ramp Ministry. I pray it does not change a bit! Does someone know the name of the Pastor that frequently preaches on the RAMP? He is worthy of support in prayer and finances. As far as I can tell they do not abuse their authority with continuous pleas for money and those testimonies from all of those young people are simply awesome! No wonder they are so in-love with Jesus and passionate for the Lord. Those forgiven much (and then the Lord saves them out of darkness) are the ones who love much. There testimonies of conversions and transformations are every bit of a miracle (just like physical healings are miraculous). Support this Ministry NOT to earn a blessing from God but in gratitude. I also agree with the previous comment "Lord your Holy" is the one of the best songs Karen Wheaton has sung! Thanks Karen and may God grant you a double and triple portion of every good and perfect gift!

    Karen came out of PTL and the Jimmy Swaggart ministries. Some of you too young to remember them may have to do some research. Basically, they took people's money, lived lavish lifestyles, and had ministries wrecked by sex scandals. Karen is from the same camp.

    Well, all I will say here is that Mrs Karen's view of TBN and the Ramp's as well, AND Damon Thompson's, is the same as y'alls. They have made it very clear many times that I have been to the Ramp. They don't agree with the things TBN does as well, just as much as you guys!! The thing about it is, TBN HAS been a great blessing to The Ramp's ministry. As much as they disagree with a lot of things going on there with TBN, AND THEY DO EXPRESS IT, I HAVE HEARD OUT OF THIER OWN MOUTHS, MORE THAN A FEW TIMES. the fact of the matter is, TBN has been a blessing to the Ramp. They don't "make you" dance. NO. It has nothing to do with that. I was there this past weekend... Damon made it very clear in his message that it isn't about dancing because you can dance till your legs fall off, but if you're not right with God, then it doesn't matter a hill of beans. Revival isn't going to come to your church because you dance, thats not what its about. They simply KNOW that when you press in, you can't... Read more

    Jesus said some are born gay. Here Jesus refers to "eunuchs who have been so from birth." This terminology ("born eunuchs") was used in the ancient world to refer to homosexual men. Jesus indicates that being a "born eunuch" is a gift from God. Some Christians confidently assert that God did not create homosexual people "that way." This is important because they realize if God did create gays "that way," rejecting them would be tantamount to rejecting God’s work in creation. In pressing their “creation order” argument, some Christians are fond of saying, "God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve!" To bolster their position, they often cite Jesus’ words in Matthew 19:4-5, where he responds to a question about whether divorce is permissible: “Jesus answered, ‘Have you not read that the One who made them at the beginning made them male and female, and said, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife and the two shall become one flesh”? Therefore... Read more

    I guess what I'm really confused about is, where is Karen Wheaton's covering? I mean, who is her pastor? And where is this concept coming from where it's okay to not have a covering anymore? I mean, it's not in the Bible so where is it coming from? I have been to a few Ramp and ramp-like services, and all I've noticed is a bunch of emotionalism. People trying to drum up some kind of spiritual encounter. I didn't feel one ounce of God's presence. I'm not trying to knock Karen, or the ramp, or any other ministry like it, I'm just trying to understand where this type of behavior is found in the Bible. Maybe then I will believe it.

    Well I read all these comments because I thought I would enjoy a good Ramp bashing, but actually I disagree with a lot of these- both good and bad. I have known Karen for several years and spent years as part of most of the "behind the scenes" stuff. I'm not sure what to address since I see a lot of inaccurate postings and misunderstandings here. I'll start in Karen's defense. I could find fault with her for a few things, but that's humanity and we all have our problems. She has always seemed to be a genuine person for the most part at least. For one thing, I don't know much about how she remarried, but her first husband cheated on her, which I learned mostly through others and not by her "slandering" him. And she does go by her present husband's name legally, Karen Wheaton Towe, but she was already well-known as Karen Wheaton at that point and goes by that usually. Also, her husband lives about four hours away during the week because he already had a secure job for a company there t... Read more

    What exactly does Karen mean in her missions statement when she says, "...calling (a generation of youth) into their individual purpose and corporate responsibility as an offensive army imposing the Kingdom of God."

    As a young person who has been directly been affected by Mrs. Karen's ministry, I cannot help but support her in what she is doing. About three years ago I was lost in a life of perversion and death, constantly struggling with depression and immorality. Today, though, Jesus is everything I am pursuing....and coming in contact with this ministry is what set me here. They showed me the real Jesus.

    Does God Allow Women To Be Preachers? NO! God DOES NOT allow women to be preachers. That is not my opinion or interpretation! That is plain Bible fact! The Bible restricts what women can do in the church in I Timothy 2:11-12, "Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence." There are two specific contrasts in verse 11: women are to LEARN, not to TEACH, and, they are to be in SUBJECTION, not DOMINION. This is a principle stated throughout the Scriptures. Verse 12 makes it plain, women are not to teach nor to usurp authority over the man." A woman does not have the authority to teach, or in any other way, have authority or dominion over the man. Therefore, any and all teaching over the man is prohibited! This is not a cultural situation, nor is it simply a first century practice. The force of the Greek words means this legislation is for ALL TIME. It is just as true today as it was 2,000 ... Read more

    Karen Wheaton's singing has blessed me for years, and I was so excited when I first saw Chosen and her commitment to the youth. However, the past 2-3 times I have seen her in person, she has said some things which are not just unbiblical, but they are outright heretical. Such as "Jesus did not come so much to die for us but more to show us how to die". Yikes!!!! How can anyone say that. If it were not for His sacrafice we could not be saved!! Jesus Christ's sacrafice on the cross is the basis for Christianity.

    i would also like to add something that i heard my pastor saying this sunday service. the topic was about being active in serving God. showing initiative. which means, doing something that no else is willing to do. you can not see results or bring fruit if you dont do anything. so ask yourself, before you go and  judge Karen Wheaton or someone else about the way they serve God:" what am i doing to seve Him? have i just been sitting around expecting change, while judging the work God is doing through people that have already brought change?" Karen has dedicated herself to serving young people everywhere. God has worked through her to bring change and results to the youth of our generation. so in conclusion, i would just like to say, that before you go and judge someone else about how they serve God, look at what you are doing. worry about yourself. if someone does try to serve God in a wrong way, just for money or something else, God Himself will be the Judge on that day we all stand be...

    Revised:  After seeing Karen and the Ramp sing and dance for every TBN BegAThon for the last 2 years and where millions are stolen from good people in the name of God I have no choice but to give her one star. She made her choice.

    All the negative reviews seem to reflect people's opinion of TBN. Karen Wheaton is featured on TBN.. her soul isn't sold to it. The Ramp and Karen's ministry tend to indirectly speak out against many negative attributes of TBN quite boldly. You will know them by their fruits and I think the tens of thousands who have been moved by Karen, Chosen, and The Ramp speak for themselves

    I can't believe that some people have the nerve to say negative remarks about Karen .... She is an annointed Woman of God.... who has sacrificed all her time to spreading the gospel... and praying for the youth of this nation. She is just a woman , a human woman who said yes to God. She sacrificed a lot for Jesus Christ.... She has the Spirit of God heavily upon her.... She has ministered some amazing songs that have lifted my spirit and have called the body of christ to repentence , ect.. She is a woman of God.. God says in His word to touch not my anointed and to do my prophets no harm.... So how dare some of you try to touch God's anointed servant!!! You need to check your own hearts!

    She has a good voice. But, she needs to get away from the TBN/Word of Faith crowd. They're really ruining her image & talent. 3 stars.

    I have known Karen for a few years also and I have found her to be anything but sincere. She has slandered her ex-husband for 11 years but fails to explain why or how she got married so fast after her first divorce. (ONLY 4MONTHS LATER)She did not take her new husband's name and he lives in another state and has for over 10 years. People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. She may look sincere and even holy on TV but her treatment of those she deems beneath her is a glaring example of who she really is. It will eventually come out. The truth always does. TBN "stars" are about one thing and one thing only: Their next gig. They extort money from poor ignorant people so they can buy designer clothes and drive 50,000 dollar cars. It's obscene the way TBN prostitutes the gospel for personal profit and power and fame. Just ask the people behind the scenes!!!All the comments indicate they worship Karen not God

    I played in Karen's band back in 1980, prior to her joining Jimmy Swaggart Ministries, and had the opportunity to know her as both an annointed minister and friend. We logged many miles and hours together as a band. Though the clips I have seen of the RAMP have left me with some of the same questions I asked of Charismatic circles more than 20 years ago and whether or not some people really understand why they do what they do, I can say that Karen appears to have remained consistent and full of fire. What you see is what you get; passion and all. Karen is not about entertainment; yes, she really is that intense. When she speaks or sings, it really does come from her deepest being. She's not perfect, but she is passionate and authentic. I commend her for the ministry she has done over the past 25 years and I commend her for being concerned about encouraging the youth as they are up against plenty of battles and need to be empowered by God's Spirit.

    Of course she is an evangelist....she is seeing souls saved set free and delivered.....Teens who are bound by suicide, cutting, depression, drugs, prostitution, etc...are being set free and living 100 percent radically for Jesus.....her ministry is bringing much needed fruit and as the bible says you shall know them by their fruit....I love you Mama Karen.

    Karen Wheaton and Chosen are willing vessels to facilitate the move of God. They are willing to let God move through them no matter what other people say or think about them. You cannot deny the fruit that has come from the ministry.

    All these comments, besides the comments that people leave that think their being funny, are so right on. I believe that Karen wheaton, and Chosen are out for the victory of the war. They want many youth to realize that there is a war going on, and they want you to part of the fight. We have to stand up and be the christian that God wants us to be. I havent been to the ramp, yet, but my youth pastor has and we are going to it some time soon. Ive heard all about it and can't wait to see the move of God their.

    Hi! have a nice day to the one who read this. By the way im a first user of this site and its my first time to write an opinion, eventhough i haven't,watch TBN now because of disconnection and some problems in our area I have watch TBN in past years and the ramp which you called is a really a blessing for those young people who watch it! I hope that one day we the young people in our church could attend and see clearly in personal how the ramp or your service is going on! I want to feel the power of GOD. Pls. pray for us! Keep up the good work and continue in serving GOD.

    Karen Wheaton and her dancers are truly annointed. I look foward to watching her every Friday when she comes on TBN. I am only 15 years old and I can discern whats of God and what is not and I know that she and her ministry is totally of God. When I first watched her program I was in my bed at 2:00 am and I was blown away by the annointing I wept in my bed right there because I could feel the presence of God all around me.

    Karen Wheaton has been such a blessing to me my self she has opened my eyes to the freedom God has for us. I am 110% behind her ministry. I know for a fact that through God she is touching other youth throughout the country. I know some people do not accept the things she is teaching, let God judge them it is not our place for us to judge. All I wnated to say is Karen Wheaton has been a major inspiration to me and many others I know. She is very down to earth olny doing what God tells her to do. God will reward her for that.

    I am a Christian. I'm not charismatic, I've never spoken in tongues before, etc. However, Karen Wheaton/Chosen/The Ramp's ministry is so obviously annointed by God, that you'd have to be extremely disconnected with God to not notice it or to interpret it as "brainwash". Never has a group of young people exhibited so much spiritual freedom on a television and internet broadcast. This ministry, along with Jason Upton's music and many other influences, has challenged me spiritually in so many ways recently, and has been an incredible blessing to my life. And let me remind all you negative voices, your whining and nitpicking will not stamp out the annointing on their ministry. All it does is remain void of purpose. Besides, if people DON'T hate you for being a light of Christ, then you probably aren't being one. John 15:18-25 says, "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to ... Read more

God open the eyes of those who are ignorit to your spirit and have not yet felt the touch that many have because of this ministry. K. Wheaton and her drama team have always blessed me, I cry, I laugh I feel the Holy Spirit and It has caused me to be a better youth leader and Youth Drama Leader in my church. GO MS.WHEATON!!!!

    As a Cleveland Ramp goer I am utterly disgusted how some people say that Miss Karen's ministry is all show and is not of God, blah, blah, blah. I have experienced it and know it is real. Miss Karen and Chosen have an annointing that can't be touched. I believe that people are ignorant when they say things like that. I know that God is doing something in the hearts of the people. Look around! God is stirring up this nation with disaster and He is going to change it. A lot of it is starting with the faithfulness of Miss Karen, Chosen, and the people who attend Ramp regularly.

    I have listened and seen Karen and Chosen in services for many years now. I have never heard or seen them do or say anything contary to the Bible. When God is in it, man needs to stop trying to control it and let God have complete control!!! There is not one Christian that can say they completely agrees with any Preacher or Evangelists or Pastor. It's time we stop looking at the differences between us all and focus on what God has called us to do. Preach the word to all the world. SO WAHT IF WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT IDEAS OF HOW TO GET IT DONE!! God has called us out of darkness to do his will. It's time we stand up and fight our real enemy Satan and stop fighting with each other. It's time that we the Christians stand up for what is right. Which is the complete word of God. Stop worrying about what everyone else is doing. Are you sure you are doing what God has called you to do? What does your fruit look like? None of us our perfect we all do and will continue to make mistakes un... Read more
