Article Rich with Sadness and Poor Theology

The Miami Herald’s article A rich Jesus? Debate flares over his finances gives us the same ole story about the WoF prosperity “gospel”. The article states:

But when the Rev. Creflo Dollar looks inside that manger, he doesn’t see a poor baby. He sees a baby born into wealth because the kings visiting him gave him gold, frankincense and myrrh. He sees a messiah with so much money he needed an accountant to track it. He sees a savior who wore clothes so expensive that the Roman soldiers who crucified him gambled for them.

Same song with the same performers like Creflo above along with TD Jakes, Oral Roberts and Eddie Long. For a daily treatment of these folks taken to task go over to Pulpit Pimps and read some of what brother Melvin Jones has to say. The things Melvin documents are simply amazing.

In light of this heresy let’s worship on this Lord’s Day being thankful for all things great and small that the Lord has given us. Let us worship, not for what we can get out of it, but to worship God for His glory.

Remember, it’s not about legal tender but grace remembered.

Mark
