"Just because you never heard it, doesn't mean it's not being said
Before we get into the conundrum that the body currently finds itself in...let us not forget that the work that is being done by the many continues to bare fruit.
Pray that in humility we make it through this new season and that our doings are anchored in Christ and him crucified. Save our children.
We have moved into a new season. Preachers attacking preachers by name and with passion. Reminds me a lot of the rap world....which is for your entertainment. The difference is this is not for your entertainment but men in leadership arguing and insulting one another in a public forum...(like the political debates...I guess) and getting extremely personal. The danger here is for those outside of the body, whom already look at Christianity with one eye closed. These men speak for themselves and do not represent or reflect a corporate view or voice of Christianity. Where is the Love? I certainly have learned over the years that as ministers our positions on issues change. This comes with revelation and wisdom by and from the Holy Spirit.
Based on the season we have now entered into, the shaking and sifting of the house of God has begun.
These reports on the Gospel of prosperity are interesting for their timing as much as there context. Preachers being prosperous is not and should not be the issue...more members, more giving, more revenue. The issue is the doctrine and ideology that is being preached. I know many of these men and women personally and I don't agree with the spirit of these attacks. Jan and Paul Crouch have helped to bring the Gospel to the world. Literally responsible for millions of souls being won and encouraged. Bishop Jakes has helped to put many families back together and has helped and supported the homeless and has helped the incarcerated for years to prepare for reentry and has lead thousand to God. If the only challenge you have with these men and women of God is their net worth, then your vetting and scrutiny is without merit and reeks of envy and jealousy. What roll does politics play here? Election year etc...
This new,"Tear Down Gospel" comes at a time when the Kingdom is under great scrutiny. We have to be careful and prayerful of the words we speak, because we are accountable.
Hate Gospel serves no purpose historically and is not of God. Is your ministry one of hate and separation? Listen to yourself and be judged by your own words.
