Does Rev. Al Green Worship God or Himself?

Now, yesterday we mentioned Rev. Al Green in the article about Little Richard, because we were trying to make a point to reveal allegedly, how they both decided to return to the secular music industry to make more money, after getting saved and giving their souls to Christ.   However, this article is not to only discuss Rev. Al Green still singing soul music while claiming to be a Pentecostal preacher and pastor of Full Tabernacle Gospel Church, but we also would like to discuss how vain and conceited he seems to be.   Rev. Al Green's church website reveals a huge picture of himself before you see anything, above the links.   At the end of this article, you can see his website for yourself.

Okay, when you create a christian or church website, what is the first thing you ought to see?  Something about God, right?   Well, on Rev. Al Green's church website, the first thing we notice is a huge photo of him, then finally once you scroll way down underneath another photo of him, there is a photo of his church sign.  Then, of course we eventually see the times and location for services underneath that photo.  Then, there is a photo of the church building finally, Full Tabernacle Gospel Church.   We were wondering about the home page of Rev. Al Green's church website: where is there any mention about God?   Where is there a photo of Jesus Christ, the cross He died on or at least revealing the church building first?   Then, Rev. Al Green does not let you forget to look at him twice more with a photo of him presenting his newsletter.  Then another to the right presenting a link to You Tube videos that reveal his music.   Where is there any video of Rev. Green at least preaching on his church website's homepage, instead of always thinking about Al Green?    When we visit a church website, all we should be thinking about is God and his Son Jesus Christ who died on the cross, not the face of a person taking up all the space as though they expect to be idolized which God said in his Word is a sin. 2 Tim 3:1-5 says this:
Indeed, it is certainly a sin to love yourself more than God: This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.   Then in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 the Bible told us this: Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

So,  isn't time for Rev. Al Green to make up in his mind and choose who he will serve, God or the Devil.  He loves himself more than God by not mentioning anything about God before he reveals himself on his website, so we assume he is not a true follower of Jesus Christ.

Then, if you go to Rev. Al Green's link CD's , it does not stop there, he reveals photos and links to purchase his music, but most of the ones offered are his secular music.   On that particular page look at the huge photo of Rev. Al Green at the top.  Should that be included on his church website, including links to promote his secular music?   Sisters and brothers in Christ, what does God have to say about all of this?   God said in His Word, He is a jealous God (Exodus 20:5).  If we reveal ourselves more than Him, would He be happy with it?
