Jesus Helps Me Trick People

Purgatorio has a helpful summary of the Prosperity Gospel, which is no gospel at all! In case you’re wondering what I think of Creflo Dollar, Benny Hinn, Joel Osteen, etc. See the picture below:

And he quotes some of these folks:

Paula White “God has spoken to you and right now I want you to obey that God is speaking to send in a sacrificial seed. He’s telling you an instruction of the Lord, an illogical instruction. Well, Paula you don’t understand. I’m telling you, I need to be obedient to the Lord. Cause God even spoke to people, their vacation money, savings, CD’s, and investments and you looked at it and said, ‘But God, this is it.’ And God spoke to you and He told you to sow that into the kingdom of God. And when you obey, that which God has promised to you shall come to pass.”

Creflo Dollar “…First of all, we don’t have two Rolls-Royces. And secondly, the one Rolls-Royce that was purchased was purchased by the donors, or the members of the church, and it was a surprise to me.”

Kenneth CopelandKenneth Copeland speaks in front of his jet he told his ministry would not be used for anything “not becoming to you Lord Jesus.”

Benny Hinn “I place a curse on every man and every woman that would stretch his hand against this anointing; I curse that man who dares to speak a word against this ministry… ”

  1. Thank you! good to be informed.

  2. Thanks for stirring up my anger and putting me in a grouchy mood! Should we love these people as brothers/sisters or as enemies?

  3. We should love them…They obviously have a heart for God. They have distorted the Gospel, however, to make it a heresy. I am not going to pronounce judgment on them as persons, but their message is deisastrous. We should speak out against their message and make it clear that their message is not the God of Christ. I think it is apt to bring these people to account since they sell their message for “seed money” on television for all to see.

    Being duped into these schemes happens to all those who do not search the Bible by themselves and believe every crazy and deceitful interpretation that these preachers give to one Bible verse.
    I say one verse, because they never have a full Bible study on a subject.
