The Prosperity Gospel: Man’s Version Of Truth

Did Benny Hinn just say that he’s renouncing the prosperity gospel? Did he just admit to lying for years about a gospel that is not written in the holy Scriptures? Is this a real conviction from the holy spirit or is this a fake apology?

The New Thought Roots of the Prosperity Gospel

What is Prosperity Gospel Theology?

A very basic definition of the prosperity gospel can be described as this: God’s plan is for you to live your best life now. Health, wealth, and happiness are guaranteed on Earth for all who follow Jesus. Heaven is simply the eternal extension of your temporal blessings. The prosperity gospel’s theological foundation can be traced to at least three twisted versions of biblical truths. Prosperity preacher’s twist these in order to legitimize their version of the gospel.

I just want to say we all have been hoodwinked into believing that God will supply all of our needs if we just give a $100, $200 or $1000 dollar seed. I have been through it and I know that many of you are still going through it. But while out pastors keep getting rich and we keep getting poor. They keep telling us that we would love a prosperous life if we just gave the last bit of what we got then god will meet us right there. But if you do The Hokey Pokey and turn yourself around that’s not what it’s all about. You see prosperity is the name, deception is the game.

This prosperity gospel have to be stopped. This is one of the reasonings why more and more people are not believing in the Messiah. You have these televangelist bouncing around on a stage that they call a pulpit claiming that God will supply all of your needs if you just give a $100 dollar seed. The reason why you are still in a financial rut is because, wait a minute yes lord, yes lord. Okay I hear the holy spirit saying if you will just give me your last I will blessed you openly and abundantly.

My God! They are taking and bending the scriptures for their own gain. They are selling you false hope. The heavenly Father didn’t just offer you hope he offered you life and mercy and grace. But I also take a step back and say that it is wrong to pray upon the vulnerability of man. It’s something about that name. I don’t care if you are a none believer. There is something about that name that makes you incline your ears and expect nothing but the absolute best.

While that is wrong to twist the word of the most high and he specifically said to not add or take away from the word.

Deuteronomy 4:2 King James Version (KJV)

2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.

Also

Revelation 22:18-19 King James Version (KJV)

18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Can You Fully Blame The Televangelist?

No not all of the blame fall in the televangelist shoulders. You also have to point a finger at the congregation as well. Most people that are in a religion don’t read about what they are apart of. You know that’s understandable because most of these fake false religions speak a feel good message anyway. They speak something that will tickle peoples ears. And you know who is to blame for that. It’s us. 100% our fault. We don’t want to hear the truth anymore because it doesn’t make us feel good. The world has gone very sensitive, no order, no conviction. Take for example some of these YouTube videos if you even talk facts about a situation you will get feed back of this is a free word. I’m not hurting anybody. I can do whatever I want. Positive vibes and Jesus is loved don’t judge. But we called to judge right from wrong. You just have to avoid being a hippocratic.

2 Timothy 4:3

KING JAMES 1611 BIBLE
[3]For the time wil come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but after their owne lusts shall they heape to themselues teachers, hauing itching eares:

So I don’t fully blame the televangelist. They understand how to sale a product to the viewing audience that they want to hear anyway. It’s very sickening and said though because people are giving hundreds and even thousands of dollars and most don’t have that in their savings account. They are standing in line being mocked. Purposely being made a fool of and if you were to ask any of them. They will tell you that no still to this day. They are still in the same financial, health and various other situations that they were previously in before giving something that they don’t have.

People are being taken advantage of and it’s our fault. We have strayed away from sound doctrine and moved toward our worldly lust of what makes us feel good.

Now I just want to clarify something. There is nothing wrong with giving to your church. There is nothing wrong with helping the pastor out. However, when you attach a dollar amount onto a person’s blessings, value and stature in the church. Then Houston we have a problem.

THERE IS NO WHERE IN THE BIBLE THAT IT SAYS TO GIVE A 10% OR A TENTH OF YOUR TITHES.

No, Tithes have everything to do with food and nothing to do with money. The ISRAELITES gave food instead of money because I will give a scripture to support what I am saying.

Old Testament

Lev 27:30-32 And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the tree, is the Lord’s. It is holy to the Lord. If a man wants at all to redeem any of his tithes, he shall add one-fifth to it. And concerning the tithe of the herd or the flock, of whatever passes under the rod, the tenth one shall be holy to the Lord

New Testament

2 Chronicles 31:5-6 King James Version (KJV)

5 And as soon as the commandment came abroad, the children of Israel brought in abundance the firstfruits of corn, wine, and oil, and honey, and of all the increase of the field; and the tithe of all things brought they in abundantly.

6 And concerning the children of Israel and Judah, that dwelt in the cities of Judah, they also brought in the tithe of oxen and sheep, and the tithe of holy things which were consecrated unto the Lord their God, and laid them by heaps.

Here’s a video I found that go further in depth and really drives home my point that I am trying to make.

People stop letting these lying devils make a fool out of you. Knowledge is power and key. Research what you are in so you can know if it’s something that you should stand for or be against.

So Peace

Wassup world. I am Keyshaun Jamel Collins and what can I say about myself. First thing is that I never thought that I would be sharing my life, thoughts, experiences, ideas, and dreams aka my business with the world. I’m simply an introverted guy who views the world differently but prefers to keep to myself. I graduated from college nine months ago with my Bachelors of Science degree in psychology. That’s a big accomplishment for me. Yet, that’s not about me. I am a Chicago native born and raised to a black dad and mom who are still married till this day. That don’t describe me. I got a Puerto Rican and Mexican fiancée; my guy friends I had to break free from them because they were jealous. Couldn’t understand how I had the tools to get that one girl, while they stepped up to the plate swung and missed. That’s not about me. Went outside day after day practicing on what started as a dream in hopes of one day becoming a reality. I did not have the mental strength to let this curricular activity go, so I could realize that this was meant to be metaphor to teach me life and prepare me for my true gift. Now that’s me. I am a firm believer in to whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). My goal is to give back, it is very easy to receive so much in life, but the real reward is to give back that knowledge so you can help the next fellow man under you struggling in whatever his/her situation may be. Through this website I have an opportunity to inspire, encourage and motivate. Paint a picture with my words while telling a story about my struggles, hard aches and pains; also the down falls and faults that I bare witness to everyday while I interact with numerous people everyday. How am I able to achieve this, simple I know myself. I know my self worth as a man because I envision it, claim it, speak it and walk in my authority confidently because I understand it. Like my dad and mom always say “If you don’t stand for something than you’ll fall for anything. Now that’s me.
