Greetings,The topic is drifting in and out of riches, prosperity, luxuries and pastors/ministries with large net worth, they get large salaries and sit on the donations provided by viewers, it is the latter we are focusing on.
They preach the blessings of giving, but do not practice what they preach.
They have massive worth (in earthly monetary value) yet still ask for more and more giving.
Now let me think, in our Lord's own words we have
Matthew 6:19-21 (NKJV)
19 "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal;
20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.
21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Like so many ministers, I use the word minister to cover all clergy no matter what denomination. Like so many ministers, they are educated, they are good speakers, they know how to talk the talk. They certainly know how to appeal for money!
You accused but have no proof.
You speak and yet have no understanding.
You use scripture and apply in ignorance of the True Facts.
The title is a joke brother.
The partners and members are not poor nor do they supply all the funds or material things.
How about finding out the real truth and stop agreeing with the worldly views.
Where do all the funds come from?
Where do they go?
What business men have Ben lead to give out of their multi billion dollar business es and continue to grow?
How much do these ministries put back into the kingdom of God and how many people have they turned their lives around?
Can you honestly answer any of these?
