The “Gospel of Getting Rich”

continues in the recession.

Kenneth Copeland, Jerry Savelle, Jesse Duplantis, Benny Hinn, Creflo Dollar, Joyce Meyer, Marilyn Hickey, Joel Osteen…are nothing but scam artists cross-dressed as Christian ministers.

Jesus told people not to obsess over money; the Proverbs is chock-full of admonitions about not desiring to get rich, even warning of the dangers of obtaining wealth too fast.

Jesus instructed the disciples to pray, “give us this day our daily bread”. The Greek word used implies subsistence, not abundance.

Jesus said that His kingdom is not of this world; He refused to arbitrate when a brother told him to force his other brother to split his inheritance; He told one rich man to give up everything to be a disciple (he refused); He lamented about the difficulty of getting to heaven with massive wealth; He once told a would-be disciple that “the Son of Man has no place to lay His head”.

Contrast that with the Copelands, who went out of their way to enlist contributors (the “CX Team”) to give more money, so Kenny could get a Citation X.

  1. In my book I pretty much affirm that there is not much difference between the Gospel of Getting Rich and the Gospel of Getting Married.
