Christian Post Reports Paula White’s Easter Sermon Offered ‘Resurrection’ for $$$$
I was not shocked, but I was absolutely infuriated to hear that this Easter Pastrix Paula White “offered her followers an Easter Sunday deliverance from a spiritual death sentence for a $1,144 ‘resurrection seed’ she says was set by God,” based a twisted rendering of the resurrection of Lazarus.
THIS is not Christianity! This is not true. Nowhere in the Bible does God say anyone can buy things from Him whether that is health, wealth, wisdom or more importantly than any of that — new life in Jesus Christ.
Repent of your sins, believe in Jesus and be saved. God will raise you to new life in Christ. You cannot buy that gift of God’s grace paid by the blood of Jesus.
Sadly, this is an utterly shameful, but all-too-common tactic of making big promises to people if they pour money into your church coffers. And sadly, plenty of people naively give and when nothing comes of it they think it was their weak faith at fault. I was just talking with someone about this yesterday and they pointed out the other problem: people who aren’t Christians see it and think that nonsense is Christianity and it repels them. For both of those reasons this sort of thing simultaneously infuriates and saddens me.
If you’re in a church that does this, run, do not walk to the nearest exit. And dig deep into the Scriptures for yourself so that you are not led astray by such people again.
Ultimately, God will hold people like White accountable. But true Christians need to do expose this for what it is. Thankfully, Fighting for the Faith often does.
UMC and Episcopals Grow Closer, Advocate Interfaith Cooperation Bordering on ‘Syncretism’
Both of these denominations have been compromising on Scripture for years, so it’s no surprise to see the United Methodist Church and Episcopal Church treading ever closer to universalism or full syncretism. Story by Joseph Rossell of IRD.
