The Gospel of Bling Bling (Gospel of Prosperity)

20 Jan


1 Timothy 6:10, For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

I have seen and heard alot of these popular messages from many so-called men and women of God, who claim that the more money that you give the more God will return to you ten fold. On top of tithing many Spiritual Pimps refer to offering up a sum of money unto God and He will bless what they have given unto Him and return back ten-fold. They almost always quote from the Old Testament about the Israelites who were to give ten percent of what they earned, as a form of taxation to provide for the needs of the Priests and Levites in the sacrificial system( these scriptures consist of Leviticus 27:30, Numbers 18:26, Deuteronomy 14:24, 2 Chronicles 31:5.) This is a false teaching that worldly Pastors preach to rob many Christians of the money that God has truly blessed them with for their hard labor. This is what was spoken of in 2 Peter 3:3, “First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.” Since the Crucificion of Christ their is no longer a need for offerings in which to obtain the grace of God becasue our exceptance of Jesus grants us the pardon that we need by being that offering mankind so desperately needs. The New Testament nowhere states that the more money you sow, the more that you will receive. In fact in the New Testament, the Bible never states a 10 percent tithe to the Church, the Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 16:1-2, “Now about the collection for God’s people: Do what I told the Galatian churches to do. On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with his income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made. This verse does not designate and actual amount except that it should be, “in keeping with his income.” These are hard times for all, and the Holy Bible states in 2 Corinthians 9:7, “Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” The best way to take control of your money and see a true return is budget, and manage your money correctly. Pray and ask God to send a money wise believer into your life to help you with your finances. Take these actions so that you do not fall victim to these dishonest “men of God,” who take scripture out of context to fatten their pocketbooks at the expense of the Children of God. The Bible reads in 1 Timothy 6:5, “Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.” If this message is being preached in your Church or Bible Study have no part of it, becasue the only message that needs to be preached is that of Jesus Christ and Him crucified. Be blessed…
