who lead my people astray,
they proclaim ‘peace’
if they have something to eat,
but prepare to wage war against anyone
who refuses to feed them.
6 Therefore night will come over you, without visions,
and darkness, without divination.
The sun will set for the prophets,
and the day will go dark for them.
7 The seers will be ashamed
and the diviners disgraced.
They will all cover their faces
because there is no answer from God.”
8 But as for me, I am filled with power,
with the Spirit of the LORD,
and with justice and might,
to declare to Jacob his transgression,
to Israel his sin.
This guy is trying to “steal and misuse money” and he lures them in with his smooth words and reverse psychology.
Do not be deceived.
Here is what these false prophets can do with the money they wrongly obtain from unsuspecting passers by.
He is trying to pressure his congregation by twisting scripture so that they will be happy to give HIM money so that HE can accomplish HIS goals.
Prosperity Gospel IS NOT BIBLICAL PRACTICE!
2 Corinthians 7:9
7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
Dollar is using compulsion to convince his followers to give him massive amounts of money. This is not how God wants us to give.
God also does not enjoy when false prophets, Creflo Dollar for example, try to take advantage of HIS people for their own selfish gain.
8 Lately my people have risen up
like an enemy.
You strip off the rich robe
from those who pass by without a care,
like men returning from battle.
9 You drive the women of my people
from their pleasant homes.
You take away my blessing
from their children forever.
Mark Driscoll explaining the wrongness of Prosperity Gospel.
