(I share this as I read this article one day and the next I watched a portion of a Kenneth Copeland meeting where Gloria Copeland was shouting the mantra “Money, Come to Me” and promoting the hundered-fold blessing concept. Apparently Brother Hagin’s warning and rebuke didnt carry far.)
CBN.com – Charismatic Bible teacher Kenneth Hagin Sr. is considered the father of the so-called prosperity gospel. The folksy, self-trained “Dad Hagin” started a grass-roots movement in Oklahoma that produced a Bible college and a crop of famous preachers including Kenneth Copeland, Jerry Savelle, Charles Capps, Jesse DuPlantis, Creflo Dollar and dozens of others—all of whom teach that Christians who give generously should expect financial rewards on this side of heaven.
Hagin taught that God was not glorified by poverty and that preachers do not have to be poor. But before he died in 2003 and left his Rhema Bible Training Center in the hands of his son, Kenneth Hagin Jr., he summoned many of his colleagues to Tulsa to rebuke them for distorting his message. He was not happy that some of his followers were manipulating the Bible to support what he viewed as greed and selfish indulgence.
Those who were close to Hagin Sr. say he was passionate about correcting these abuses before he died. In fact, he wrote a brutally honest book to address his concerns. The Midas Touch was published in 2000, a year after the infamous Tulsa meeting.
Many Word-Faith ministers ignored the book. But in light of the recent controversy over prosperity doctrines, it might be a good idea to dust it off and read it again.
This story comes from Apprising.org, exposing more lies and outright heresy in the Word of Faith circles of celebrity preachers, this time involving Paula White and the self-proclaimed rabbi Ralph Messer. Again, this display with the Torah is an abomination.
There we found out that Florida Currier was carrying a story indicating that “Rabbi” Ralph Messer was supposedly going to crown White queen “during a Super Bowl Sunday service” at her New Destiny Christian Center.
Beyond any reasonable doubt, that was an endorsement of “internationally acclaimed Bible teacher, speaker, and minister-rabbi” Ralph Messer by T.D. Jakes’ spiritual daughter pastrix Paula White. So, the evidence does reveal that White’s being a bit disingenuous in her statement above.
Finally, were about to witness something else, which also proves to be quite interesting. Watch now as Messer will perform his scroll-wrap ceremony with his dear friend Paula White; this was on her own TV program three years before Messer’s coronation of former King, Eddie Long.
While she isn’t called Queen, White obviously has absolutely no problem with Messer below:
In this all new broadcast Mike examines some of the news of the day including a sermon series based on the Wizard of Oz, a new book that portrays Christ as a woman, a woman who claism to be a prophetess types in tongues, and more on Glenn Beck, Mormonism and those who partner with him.
Even more evidence of the lunacy, ignorance and apostasy of people like Juanita Bynum (and those that ‘follow’ her) in this story of her writing a message in tongues. What a hellish abuse of Scripture! You can read the entire article at ChristianPost.com.
In the third post, published about a minute later, the “tongues” text started to appear:
GIRD THEM UP IN THE SPIRIT…GIVE THEM A MIND TO PRAY LIKE NEVER BEFORE….WE CALL ON YOU JESUS….YOU ARE OUR HELP AND OUR HOPE!!!!!!!!NDHDIUBGUGTRUCGNRTUGTIGRTIGRGBNRDRGNGGJNRIC YOU ARE OUR HELP AND OUR HOPE….RFSCNGUGHURGVHKTGHDKUNHSTNSVHGN YOU GOD……YOU ARE OUR HELP AND OUR HOPE!!!!!! OUR HOPE IS IN YOU FATHER……OUR STRENGTH FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS IS IN YOU FATHER……HELP US NOW……LORD WE DONT ASK FOR HELP FOR JUST THEM….THIS IS US….THIS IS A PART OF OUR OWN BODY…..
Several prayer posts with intelligible spellings continued to appear and visitors to Bynum’s Facebook page began questioning the text.
Bynum’s prayer posts soon caught the attention of the media, with one reporter at a spirituality and faith website speculating that the minister was communicating “in tongues.”
