WHAT WOULD JESUS, MOSES, MOHAMMED DO?


⛪️  YOU ARE NO BETTER THAN THE LIAR IF YOU SPEAK OR VOTE FOR HIM

Politics and Pastoring share a lot in common.  Strange, weird characters, weird acts, voodoo and lots of lies being a prevalent combo.  It’s really simple,  if you are a believer in God don’t make a fool of yourself by paying homage to a fake, fraud, liar, draft-dodging false prophet by supporting this one particular man (DONALD J.  T-RUMP) and his policies.  

I you support T-RUMP you are lieing to your friends and lieing to God.  Worse you are lieing to yourself.  

And he is not alone, the ones that challenge you for their religious bidding, which is to the God Mammon are just as guilty.  Mammon is the Hindu God of money.

I report politics and usually take no sides, most probably 60% mean well in their jobs, the rest are crooks, greedy, selfish, lieing, spinning autocrats.  Basically in their mind lieing is OK. T-RUMP made it a national competition and he wins hands down.

Wake up, if you are a true believer, regardless of whatever organization you believe in.  This is suggested reading for the super Evangelical supporters of TRUMP,  you have no clues as to how this one man is about to destroy your world.  

Those other enemies, on every station, all hours and everyday more of them are the Fake Pastors, the Prosperity Partners of lies and greed, verbal money changers of the Protestant Evolutionary Movement known as a group preaching the Prosperity Gospel.

HERE’S A SHOCKER FROM THE BURNING BUSH
Most of these TV celebrities professing a knowledge of God’s phone number do not have real credentials in Academia. If you believe in this false gospel, or any false prophet likened to TRUMP then you are as imbedded in and blasphemy and guilty as much as he is in the problem.  

Like the Pastors always asking for money, beating the tax code, living opulently, they are like joined at the hip by greed and lies.  He is a traitor to all peoples, recently evidence arose that he is a Draft Dodger, with fake medical letters released by the family of the Doctor that wrote the fake letters to the draft board.  And should be treated as such.  If you support him you are no better than dirt, an individual who goes against all the good things and true beliefs an Evangelical should have or believe in... not his rhetoric of hared and debauchery.  

He is a bigot and defiler, a draft dodger and professed schemer and believer in pardoning people he wants to lie about the border.   Shame on him, he is not fit to be in office an a shame on you for being so stupid as to believe and support him.

Fifty-eight thousand Americans lost their lives in the war, and he claims he didn’t believe in the war, - HE WAS A DRAFT DODGER - but it was his coward side talking, and his fathers money that got him deferred not his position.  He is not a self made man, another lie, 400 million dollars from Daddy insured success yet he blew it many times on bad projects and that may be the real Russian connection for money laundering.  Just read about T-RUMP Towers.


⛪️  
TWO TRUTHS - FALSE PROPHETS
TRUMP is the false prophet God warned and spoke of as a test,  and you are failing miserably as both a fool and your morale character is in question.  If you support him, you are supporting what he does.  No excuses, no sorry answers, his track record is out there, and if you are too stupid to understand the proof, and it is not good, there is no other answer, simply put, you are either completely fooled, really stupid or naive. 

I was tempted today after we found out he is a draft dodger and I wanted to call those who deny the findings, define them as stupid, very anti American and ignorant. I cannot think of anything lower than a draft dodger, the lowest form of coward as my fellow soldiers and families of the deceased will tell you.  And after his lies and statements to a Gold Star Family, I am lucky I was not there, I would have been arrested.

If he said he was a coward, I would believe him.  Conscientious objector (another lie) and against the war and was dismissed, I understand that, but it not the TRUMP way, getting doctors to fake medical problems and lie is the TRUMP way, the way of the scumbag. 

“ You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time unless... it appears you are Donald Trump and they are the Evangelical base of the GOP”.  Harsh but true!    The second truth is by the great Sioux Nation of the Plains:  “ Which is worse the liar or the one who tells the tales of the liar?”  Send this memo immediately to Mike Pence!

 

BURNING BUSH EMERGENCY CALL  FALSE PROPHET SPOTTED
By the way, the pic at the right is our winner for the most naive couple in America, the celebrated ALFRED E. NEUMANN DUMBEST Award.  Obviously they beat out everybody else and actually may have embarrassed Jesus who would one day like to have a chat with Donald and straighten a few thousand things out.  

I would think that God will eventually step in and I honestly believe he did not give Jesus permission to send the world  [THE T-RUMP] as Steve Bannon another noted screwball claims Donald T-RUMP was sent by divine guidance and the current Pope of the Catholic Church is somewhat corrupt.  The Bannon article was so bizarre and off the wall, including him setting up a gladiator school in Rome to train defenders of the faith.  

1--Read more by Goggling “ Bannon and the Pope”

2--Pour yourself a strong drink... 

MY suggestion to this couple:   God would never let this happen, and Jesus cannot nor recommend or endorse narcissistic, paranoid, bullying, cheating, lying, misogomistic, draft dodging perverts by himself, thats above his pay grade.  

Now Donald may have aligned himself with some Fake TV pastors but that doesn’t count here in Heaven.  You would have to go through room 666 and check with Mr.  Lucifer Mephistopheles, AKA The Angel Of Darkness, who has promoted others like Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin,  and the T-Rump fits his profile.  

Further if you still believe it, please leave your Church and seriously you need help, and take up some other religion like SCIENTOLOGY, or find a nice mountain retreat with a cliff. 


REALITY WORKS BACKWARDS SOMETIMES

But the BASE have numbers, and like the German people who were lied to in World War II, they follow the misdirected plan and they think ( stupidly) it works for them but in the end it will destroy them just as it did the NAZI’s.  It is an attack and an affront on the core values and beliefs in the United States. 

Otherwise, looking at the money changers, Jesus had to deal with, recognizing its money first and all that other stuff second. The changers were really lenders, today we call them pawn brokers and loan sharks.  We know there are many amongst them corrupt enough to take advantage big time of their beliefs and these Evangelical believers for what ever reason, mostly their own fears and beliefs make them susceptible. 

 

🏛  FIRST UNDERSTAND THE LAW OF THE LAND - THE CONSTITUTION

The Constitution of the United States established America's national government and fundamental laws, and guaranteed certain basic rights for its citizens. 

To date, there are 27 constitutional amendments.  I present the Preamble to the Constitution, fifty some odd words that declare what the Constitution was written for and these words have meaning and will never be changed.

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure Domestic Tranquility, provide for the Common Defense, promote the General Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America”.  It was established for all, not for some.

I have nothing against people of any faith as long as their beliefs are honest,  and honest means having resourced, understood and clarified, not here-say, without a doubt as to authenticity of their belief, and not swayed by corrupt individuals or swayed by Ignorance.  It stems from the word “ to ignore”.  

Ignoring truth makes the individual ignorant.  Even when presented with truth, they ignore it.   I am very harsh in my judgement of these people because what they do is misconstrued, a theology that is hurting all America.  

•  It will take years, perhaps more than a decade or two to fix all the wrongs, TRUMP has created and destroyed, from foreign relations to the ecology of the planet.  He just sold out the rest of us.

•  This is proudly the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA -- and one religion cannot take any preference over another.  This will never become the United States of Christendom or Jesus-land, or Baptistdom, It is the USA.

•  When elected you take the oath and swear to protect the Constitution of the United States.  Your Religion is not mentioned.  It’s an oath to the country and the Constitution... 

•  It can’t be to religion because religion is a man based social phenomena, created by, written by, modified, altered and programmed to suit someones specific beliefs.  

•  The Bible is a book written by man about stories, most being unproven tales, great messages and modified by man ( and thirteen Popes for their financial needs) and it’s a moral code for some.  Look in the mirror, who do you see?  Are you a  person of truth, integrity and caring or a vibrant supporter of Fake Evangelicals and Fake Politicians.  Is that you.  These are not accusations, they are truth.  Are you truth?  

 

😇 TRUTH SHALL PREVAIL - THIS IS WHAT I DO BELIEVE

I was told never to talk about politics, nor religion, and frankly with a conscience... I ignored the repression of that thought...  just as the politicians and fake Evangelicals have ignored truth, I will accept the challenge... I know who my God is and he is a good God.  I also investigate and know a lot about those who cheat the public in God’s name.  Thats why we combined the scumbags of Religion with the scumbirds of Politics.

Please don’t get the impression I am against any, belief, religion, ethnicity, or faith.  If it makes you happy, I am not against  the use of holy water, holy oil, holy cloths, holy lego puzzles, posing, yodeling or speaking in tongues and reaching for the sky.

Nor getting overly emotional, nor really weird dancing by untalented dancers. If you need that kind of support or interaction and it does make you happy,  and it floats your boat...fine.  Just don’t think that liturgical canoe will work in the Colorado Rapids Stage Four.

People have been representing themselves in various modes for centuries, most of the time it is to convince one self.  But there are better things out there to make you feel better.  As many of those followers of the Dumbass Snake Handler Church in the Bible Belt found out, the snake never got the memo.  The snake would rather not be in church ever since he got blamed for the Garden of Eden incident.  The congregation found out they got it wrong.  Over 100 by history have died in this abomination of religion. They just didn’t believe hard enough and I might add it’s a horrible painful slow death by Western Diamondback.


WHAT AM I?
I am neither an atheist nor an agnostic.  I write what I see, I research, interview, track, chase down, and I see a lot, the TRUTH being the most important part of the research.  I hide nothing, I am Jewish by birth, Bar Mitzvah-ed and winner of the most Fountain Pens received at a Bar Mitzvah in the130 people category.  Sixty-two years ago that was the gift, we didn’t have computers. I still have one that was gold filled and quite a collector item and funny, I ordered a bottle of ink and ink can run 12-50 dollars a bottle.  But it was from my ordination and now it works. I am now complete as a writer.

In belief, I am a moderate, somewhere between reform and conservative, and fairly specking I am not a fan of the extremists.  I do not see strict Hassidic regulatory Judaism,  or ‘ Jesus Jews’ the Messianic, another fraud, and an insult to conventional Judaism, nor other parts of the practice.  I practice my faith on my level and believe wholly in live and let live. 

The same goes for the wackos in all the other beliefs, the hard core, off the wall nutcases who push common sense and sometimes decency too far.  I am as comfortable in a Church, most beliefs, as I am in my own Synagogue. Thats where most of the good people are.  I said most, some church’s and mosques are havens of hate.  Language can slow me down but usually there is someone who can guide me.  Occasions involving Muslin, Buddhist or other conventions I understand but again a translator helps.

I mentor children of all faiths and countries, my last project included kids from the uS , Mexico, India, and China. And thats my concern, NOTHING good is coming from this administration for these children. Cabinet waste Betsy (Bible Lady) DeVos is useless, hated by the majority of school administrators and will destroy public schooling and replace it with a voucher plan and you who back and support it, are to blame, the poorer children will suffer.  

“Between Trump and these Prosperity Gospel Fakes and Fanatics, TRUTH may one day be removed from our language...”  thats if the country survives the TRUMP experience and the Fake Evangelical experience.

Beliefs are hard to change, and should be by self-determination.  One truth is, “ No one has the right nor the power to forgive something or an act against the law".  Those on TV who promise salvation from harm you might have done, do not have the right to do so and are charlatans, and placing your hand on the TV set will most likely get you a possible rug burn bad knees and the possibility of a static electricity shock.

 

👺 PERSONS OF FAITH - MOST ARE SELF INDULGED
First, what makes one a Person of faith exactly?   It depends.  If we define it simplistically: “ A person of faith is one who is guided by a set of rules and ideals that supposedly creates a path of ultimate righteousness in their daily walks in life”.   It is NOT their personal guarantee to you of their beliefs which they are implying.  

About 99% of it is said for the person of faith’s own benefit.  I have found when one professes voluntarily what a person of faith they are, my hackles go up.  It’s their deeds, not their mouth that makes them a person of faith.  I trust them not, they are the worst.  I have been known to refer to them as being in a state of self-jerkification 

It’s getting more confusing every day, the world is changing and not for the better.  I believe I have been exposed to understanding of the various faiths of the world, a lot more than the average person for more than fifty years.   Being a researcher opens paths you cannot imagine and exposes frauds more than you want to know. 

As humanoids, we are human, frail sometimes morally and easily converted, as it will happen down the road other beliefs are imposed, suggested, tried, or have found their path to your heart.  Your guilt, their solution, you fall prey.  For those who believe in TV Ministries, you are termed Bablically Declined.  The easy way out, watch TV, send in a donation, wait for the mailbox to give you back ten fold.  The only ten-fold is the nine other suckers donations, all ten, folded and put in the charlatans wallet. 

If you believe the TV thats you will be saved by some mortal BS flinger professing a secret knowledge or friendship with Christ and or God, ( like having Gods personal cellphone number or mysterious messages) you are suffering from a lack of common sense and have fallen to the false profit.  They are charlatans, their God is in your wallet, it’s simply called money.  Hopefully the next burning bush will do some damage to their plans for your money.

Go back and read the Ten Commandments, and the Gospel of Matthew, the Beatifications, only then will you understand doing things for the good, help the poor, feed the starving, keep it in the right perspective and God Will Bless You. 

I limit my caustic, sadistic, sarcastic abusive touch to those who are thieves, crooks, the false prophets, fake news, dangerous fringe groups and that kind of sums up fake religions and politicians as they seem to run in similar circles in cesspools of lies and charades. They are fair game as they have gone over the line, and utilized or established a practice of deceit and morally corrupt endeavors and crookedness. 



FAKE RELIGIONIST MEETS THE SUPREME CON  

⛪️  Other than Jared and Ivanka who are now Jewish, the Trumps were agnostic and not formal Church attendees. That is,  till T-RUMP met Paula White after her divorce,  while she was still banging Benny Hinn after he dumped his wife for her, and she converted TRUMP to Christianity even though Jesus threatened to quit and become a Muslim if Donald joined the Christian Club. 

LOT’S OF “ AMEN’S
AND THANK YOU JESUS’S”

⛪️  The miracle took place in the WhiteHouse.  And judging their expressions which are everything, Donald and Paula either had a good time or he accidentally got kicked in the balls.  

And is his right hand on the secret recording devices from the Nixon era?  They both look incredibly satisfied with the results, possibly more WhiteHouse movie making.  We call it the Stormy Daniels smile.

The important thing was she brought him to Christ, but he left Jesus standing there less than ten minutes later with a series of Twitts.  

He thought she had a nice rack, so he signed his next executive decree on her ass as the picture shows his concentration on her sacred buttocks.

He didn’t stay too long.   He was lying, devoid of truth and in his demonic mode expressing scumbagism with every tweet.

It’s apparent from the photo, the relationship of  T-RUMP and Paula meets the criteria for scumbirds of a feather “ Award of Continuity”.  Ouch!   

They both will continue to screw things up... On her Facebook page she blew the whole scene by asking for money from the masses...for her ministry.   She’s no angel.   

And one commenter wrote:   If she needs money she should take up pole dancing, three husbands later... and most commentaries on the web about her religionism calls her a fake, but the commentary agreed she does have a nice rack.  (Tough audience)   Paula White has suggested that people send her money in order to transform their lives, or Face Divine Consequences.   

“ Who in the name of heaven or hell are you to tell or threaten anyone with Bible Babble and Divine Consequence for money”.  Typical TRUMP Scumbird brings this kind of rhetoric to the WhiteHouse cesspool.   People like this surround TRUMP.  Theres an old expression which really sums it up...  When covered or surrounded by sh*t, don’t ask anyone to smell your roses!  That why these ass clowns are in a political column.



She heads up the president’s Evangelical advisory committee and thats a frickin joke by itself.   
She then demanded her flock make a donation to her ministries to honor the religious principle of “first fruit”.  She said is the idea that all firsts belong to God, including the first harvest and, apparently, the first month of your salary to be sent to her. 


👺⛪️  WHAT DUMB FRICKIN IDIOT WOULD BELIEVE THAT SH*T!   Only Chuck Grassley...
We pray on your behalf you do not send her money, she is a fraud.  You would not be acclaimed as the First Fruit but you would be known as the First Fruit and Nuts.   If Donald came to Christ, God would sell-off heaven,  keeping a much smaller crew, Jesus would quit since many of the souls he found, and fixed are in new scams and sold him out.  Moses would go back to desert exploring trying to find oil this time to get even for that,  ‘chosen one’ theme.  Mohammed would trade his splendid horse for a hopped up Jeep with a Bose stereo. 

And speaking of scumbirds how can we not mention White was among a number of televangelists who were examined after Republican Senator Chuck Grassley launched a 2007 investigation into the finances of ministries that solicit millions of dollars in donations.  She refused to comply with the investigation.  He wasted four years and found nothing wrong?  Who stopped the inquisition? Who paid him off ?  Was there a collision with collusion ?

But shenanigans might have occurred because Grassley found nothing.  It was a setup from the beginning.  However, the report, published in 2011, did not draw any firm conclusions of wrongdoing since Grassley probably realized the folks who support those Fake ministries are in the GOP base.  
At that point Sen. Grassley went to the tops of the scumbag list and is now known as Smiling Up-Chuck Grassley and when he passes, flags will fly at half mast after being washed three times to get the dirt off them with him in office.

 

👺 THE DEVIL’S SCAM - THE FAKE PROPHETS Vs.THE FAKE POLITICIANS

You have seen, The famous “ Made for TV Touch and Cure Miracle”.  When one of the Evangelical TV ministers preaches and get the crowd going, there is a component of adrenalin that flows from group or mob mentality which excites the Endorphins in the body creating pain killing internal feelings and suddenly someone is cured as the Endorphins are the bodies pain killers.  A combination of both mental and physiological components at work. 

This is known and is used by these charlatans when you see someone throw the crutches away and start to dance on stage.  After they donate ( the real name of the game) and the show is over, most interviewed were looking for their crutches. Some needed first responders.

In other words, the Endorphins, the bodies natural pain killer wore off.  The BBC did a whole story on this and other stunts these crooks play.  Some went to the hospital, others wanted their crutches back which mysteriously vanished. Secret microphones, pre-interviews and ear receivers with information made these crooks look like they were performing miracles.   And the fools went for it lock stock and barrel.

Now here is the dangerous part.  It can work in more ways than one.  Mainly at rallies held by the lying comedienne and his rhetoric creating an air of hysteria.  That same Mass psychogenic illness (MPI), also called mass sociogenic illness, mass psychogenic disorder, epidemic hysteria, or mass hysteria, is “ the rapid spread of illness signs and symptoms affecting members of a cohesive group, originating from a nervous system disturbance involving excitation, loss, or alteration of function, whereby physical complaints that are exhibited unconsciously have no corresponding organic etiology”.  English: A reaction to mob mentality.   

Thus mob rallies, groupings, etc stem from the vigilante days, the inquisitions,  are just a result of what is produced when a mob gets out of hand.  There within is the blind danger to the rest of us.  Just look at Charlottesville.  And an innocent young woman and two policemen were killed.  Endorphins and mob mentality...

 

👺 THE DRIVEN FORCE IS MONEY
     MAMMON THE GOD OF MONEY!

In many cultures of the world, the Money God, (in the Hindu world it is called “Mammon”) is not a good GOD.  Mammon /ˈmæmən/ in the New Testament of the Bible is commonly thought to mean money or material wealth and is associated with the greedy pursuit of gain.  Jesus used the term Mammon, “You cannot serve both God and Mammon,” ...

This is old scamming, and has been around for ages.  Upsmanship, one who can out babel the others, out dress the others, dressing denotes a certain godly level, make ridiculous promises like being an agent of God.  

When I asked God the last time if he needed anything, he replied,“ not really, a good Kosher corn beef sandwich would be appreciated.  I’ll warm it on a burning bush”.  I added, I understand Lord “ May I add a good Kosher Dill Pickle and Spicy Brown Deli Mustard”.  He replied “ Of course and thank you”

 

✞  BABBLERS - False prophets!
The Babbler is one who can talk the talk,  but doesn’t walk the walk nor live his life that way, his goal is your money, he just babbles and plays the righteous game.  And can they babble, the bullsh*t gets so thick with acting lessons and fake emotion, Jesus doesn’t need water to walk on, their words could support elephants.

Dress for success, drive for pleasure, fly like a king...  He even is seen, like Benny Hinn usually wearing some expensive cloak like this cute 500 dollar number featured here available in multiple colors at  www.LuciferStyles.com...  

 FAKE SHILLS - Those Real Believers!

I leave room for those who claim a gigantic spiritual upheaval took place in their life transforming them overnight as significant.  And the lying gaul they exhibit, paid shills who were going to be evicted from their subsidized apartment, poured the sacred water they got from Peter Popoff in a fake vial he got caught filling it himself.  

Praise Jesus! The next day she received a check in the mail for $26,000 dollars.  Praise God, The Jehovah’s Miracles First National Bank of Hades is handing out Monopoly cash again.  Only the weak minded believe these lies, the perpetrators know how to play the audience and they are good at it.

Of course no one mentioned who sent it,  proof if it even exists, or is the that much money in Monopoly games.  “ Praise Jesus who gets the credit.  When did Jesus become God’s banker?
Are people that stupid to believe this crap?  I don’t want to believe they are but the proof is there, it’s called ignorance.  The word stem from a lack or ignoring truth.

When we research the story, we usually find out that, imagination and guilt eradication to some are real.  Churches are full of redemption, thats why people go there.  Confession is good, apology to the person or thing you harmed is better.  Except when it comes to law and eventually the laws of society show up.   Jail is an excellent recruiter of faith based criminals, crooks, perverts and violators.

Religion is a big deal, both financially and population wise. There are some 4,300-4800 religions of the world. Nearly 75 per cent of the world’s population practices one of the five most influential religions of the world: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism. 

But whereas other religions are cut and dry Christianity is not.  It is the one religion man has changed, interpreted, doesn’t agree on, fabricates,  altered, begetted, begotten, screwed with, modified, vandalized, rectified and sodomized, Christianity takes a bullet at times and altered it sometime affects those who are squeamish, afraid of the bogeyman, hell, fire, brimstone, and other man made fear derivatives...

This might not be the place for you.  You may leave now and stay mortally weak.  Because you will be getting truth and many people who profess to be people of faith can’t handle too much truth because of the BS they have planted amongst their friends and relations.  The truth surfaces and they cannot just cast it off, they go into denial defending poor positions. 

 

👺 THEY MOVED FROM THEIR DONKEYS and ASS’S INTO A MERCEDES BENZ
When you think of these mega-wealthy prosperity teachers who rake in millions each year and live ridiculously lavish lifestyles, you probably don’t think about them as preachers in brown harsh fabric robes, walking for days, in the desert sands wearing sandals spreading the gospels. 

Instead, they are driving around town in their Caddilac’s, Mercedes Benz’s and Rolls Royces, even a Bentley.  One had two Bentleys at $350,000 each which he could not explain to the IRS.  And flying in private jets raising money for more private jets, that money is not going where they tell you it was for and they even have fake accountants playing the books and stealing even more.

But as you’re about to find out, spreading the gospel has become a very profitable business for several well-known televangelists.  The personal trips in them, relax in hotel rooms that cost thousands per night, and even own second and third homes and in one case much more just two or three and driven in Roll-Royces.  

Its all legal, the only ones to blame are the idiots ( and it just might be you) who gave him their money.  And you supported a crook.  Is that what God needed you for?   Is that what you needed God for?

 

👺 THE SHAMELESS CONS
These are the “Prosperity Evangelists” who have no shame in getting paid for their spiels and routines, fake savings and miracles, gizmos, holy water from the tap and special prayer cloth’s and powders, herbs, and vitamins.  They are fakes and charlatans, taking advantage of anyone they can who is weak enough to believe them and stupid enough to send them money.  

They are good at what they do and many fall prey.  Their average personal wealth is forty million dollars.  They are the false prophets God spoke about and you ignore his words.   Scumbaggers of the Bible and many fall for this bullshit out of ignorance and fear.  

It will send you to hell more so than heaven ... as the money they raised in god’s name was for the poor, the aged, the weak, the disenfranchised, starving, lost, homeless people, they just took more than their share.   

In the reckoning these charlatans will be welcomed with open arms in hell.  And if TRUMP arrives shortly, he has promised he will air-condition hell and install a premier dual 18 - hole golf course and a new hotel called Hell-Bent-Lagos south.  

Twin courses, one exclusively for GOP crooks , fake preachers and pastors and the other for murderers, thieves, embezzlers and so forth so they don’t readily mix... it would not be fair to the murderers crew, the bad guys, because the GOP cheat all the time and are as bad or worse.

 

🤔 TRUTH

The Abrahamic Covenant is a means to material entitlement.  FALSE:  Prosperity teachers ( eg. crooks)  look to God’s covenant with Abraham and see its fulfillment as providing material prosperity to Christians today.   Kenneth Copeland says, “Since God’s Covenant has been established and prosperity is a provision of this covenant, you need to realize that prosperity belongs to you now!” 

Jesus’ atonement extends to the “sin” of material poverty.  They hold that Jesus’ atoning death provided not only for our spiritual needs but also for our financial prosperity. Thus it is only sin that keeps us trapped in poverty or anything less than abundant wealth.

🤔 Christians give in order to gain material compensation from god.  FALSE: Creflo Dollar and others like him teach that giving to the Lord’s work is primarily a means of gaining further compensation from God.  Faith is a self-generated spiritual force that leads to prosperity.  Many prosperity gospel preachers, Dollar among them, teach that we, like God, have the ability to speak reality into existence when we speak in faith. Thus faith becomes a force that allows us to speak prosperity into our lives.  

🤔 Prayer is a tool to force god to grant prosperity. FALSE:  Are you frickin kidding me?  The crooked schmuck Creflo Dollar writes, “When we pray, believing that we have already received what we are praying, God has no choice but to make our prayers come to pass.  It is a key to getting results as a Christian.”  Excuse me: You will not force God to do anything and Creflo’s key is being a crook and a false prophet.

Thus prayer is little more than a means through which we bring about our desires for wealth.  And Prosperity theology is a False Gospel.   Its message is not biblical and its promises failure.  God never assures his people of material abundance or physical health. 

🤔  The gospel of Jesus christ offers salvation from sin, not a platform for earthly prosperity  while we should seek to understand what drives so many into this movement, we must never for a moment fail to see its message for what it is — a false and failed gospel.  

Instead, Christians are promised the riches of Christ, the gift of eternal life, and the assurance of glory in the eternal presence of the living God.   In the end, the biggest problem with prosperity theology is not that it promises too much, but that it promises far too little.
