One of the things that make me the angriest is watching or hearing preachers on television and on the radio pimping the Gospel into a “pay God to get healing, blessing and money” Gospel. We have a bozo in the Rio Grande Valley selling 5 wishes for $100, and just last week, I saw a preacher on Word TV selling a “blessed dollar” for 10 dollars. THIS IS OBSCENE and goes against the very Bible they pretend to believe and represent. When Simon tried to buy the power of the Holy Spirit (in Acts 8:20), Peter told him, literally, “to hell with you and your money.” Lean into your computer screen and hear this: GOD’S GIFTS ARE NOT FOR SALE!
Here is a video sampling of “prosperity Gospel” followed by an angry preacher setting them straight. Watch both videos, then read the Apostle Paul’s words below.
“HUNGRY FOR MONEY” GOSPEL
ANGRY PREACHER SETTING THEM STRAIGHT
1 Timothy 6:3-12
If anyone teaches false doctrines and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching, he is conceited and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions 5and constant friction between men of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.
But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
