Steve Harvey Meets His Match in Raleigh Pastor

Comedian Steve Harvey has met his alter ego, and it's a pastor from Raleigh, North Carolina.

Pastor Olden Thornton and his family will appear on the show's debut this coming week.

Thornton is pastor of Raleigh International Church and a dead-wringer for the comedian and game-show host. He says not a day goes by that someone doesn't call him "Steve Harvey."

"Every single day of my life people come up to me and call me Steve Harvey," he told Harvey on the show. "And I don't even have your money!"

"I think I should get compensated or something," Thornton kidded.

He did make the most of the resemblance by submitting a video where he acted the role of Steve Harvey and proclaimed that he should be the real host of Family Feud.

The video opened the door to his family's appearance and landed them in the front of the line, Thornton told CBN News.

He also spoke about Harvey's inspirational talks and generosity to the audience, as well as having to dodge some not-so-easy questions for a pastor.

Ever the preacher, Thornton brought it home by telling CBN News that America is in a time of decision.

"Either you will be on the Lord's side" or not, he said.
