- In-debt believer gave money to prosperity preachers
- Now bitter that promised blessings never arrived
- Supporters say message is biblically sound
- Critics say evangelists prey on vulnerable to enrich selves
So I was reading CNN when I came across this news article. And it really struck me because I feel like this alot with churches. It seems to me that more and more churches are ending up becoming Health and Wealth prechers. In part because I think it ups givings, in other part I think they really want to believe it. But I just don’t see the biblical foundation of you tithe and ask God to get. I’ve been to churches that even go into a claiming ritual every time they take up the offering. They end up claiming jobs, bonuses, finding money. Its like God’s a lotto ticket.
More over is the problems it causes to peoples walks when it doesn’t happen. It can be devistating to some. and that’s sad in the least. I rarely see this “work” for people outside of a head pastor who’s preaching it. And much of his wealth is built on teaching it via books, taps other options related to. Its just sad thing I think worth mentioning.
