The Prosperity Gospel is a Pyramid Scam!

The problem isn't tithing but taking Malachi 3:10 out of context. The prosperity gospel loves taking verses out of context just to fill their needs. There is blessing in tithing but the problem is when the preacher says something like, "Tithe and your problems will be over. Tithe and you will get your best life now! Tithe and God will make you a millionaire. That's what Malachi 3:10 means that there won't be enough room to receive it!" It's already turning the tithes and offerings into crookery that giving your offerings means God will exempt you from the trials of life. No such verse teaches or suggests otherwise!

Let's take a look at the context of Malachi 3:10 with the rest of the Bible. The more I think of that there'st not enough room to receive it that it means you're to share your blessing with others. But it doesn't mean that God exempts the faithful from trials and tribulations in exchange for faithfulness. On the contrary, the more faithful you are to God the more the world will hate you (Matthew 5:11-12, John 15:18-19, James 4:4). The more the Christian will be faithful in giving money for the work of the LORD the more the world will say that the person is a lunatic for doing so. To be faithful in one's service to God is a huge loathsome sight to the world that loves sin.

How do crooked pastors work use the doctrine of tithes and offerings for their dirty work? It's not just merely emphasizing on giving tithes, offerings and first fruits. One may observe how these crooked pastors end up living in mansions because their pulpit willfully gives them that cash. Much cash is raked in for a pastor who appeals to their lusts (2 Timothy 4:3), who preaches only good things (Isaiah 33:10) and remember even today, people still love the ministers and false prophets who bear rule by their means (Jeremiah 5:31). A pastor after God's own heart may get tithes and offerings but it won't be enough to live in a mansion because he doesn't preach the prosperity gospel. But a prosperity gospel preacher can get all that money from the tithes and offerings because he preaches the prosperity gospel.

Here's what happens: the tithes and offerings aren't used for the glory of God and to do His work to reach others out for the Lord Jesus Christ. Remember the tithes and offerings in the Old Testament were meant to support the work of the LORD. It's supposed to sustain missions and charity work. But what these pastors do is to use the tithes and offerings for their personal use. What's worse is that while they misquote Malachi 3:10 yet they have robbed God. They robbed God in the tithes and offerings when they use the money for their personal gain. It's a huge misuse of tithes and offerings that not only have they conned people into paying up for promises God didn't make for those who lovingly give their tithes but also, they have used that money for their personal gain.

What's worse is that many of these prosperity gospel preachers actually work with the Vatican yet some Roman Catholics tend to deny it. Joel Osteen has been working with the Vatican for several years now and the fruits of his action are definitely not any evidence of being born again. He's not a born again pastor but a burn again pastor because his works show he's not saved to start with (1 John 2:19). He's definitely going to burn again and again in the Lake of Fire when he dies in his sins. Many prosperity gospel preachers will be burn again preachers that first they die and go to Hell and on the Great White Throne Judgment, their evil works will be exposed and that they'll be sent to burn again in the Lake of Fire.

Ken Ham's Illustrations on Spiritual Warfare Against Humanism

Dr. Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis made these beautiful illustrations to show what's wrong with the church today. Let's take a look at the two illustrations on how Christians engage their spiritual warfare. 
The first illustration reveals the following:
One member is asleep when he should be doing something.Another person is firing at the balloons because the person who's supposed to fire it is asleep on the job.Somebody is focused on deflecting cannon balls than hitting the source of the cannon balls.Somebody is treating the whole situation like a game.  
By doing so, humanism is victorious whenever the local church is asleep. This is the problem to why Christians tend to fall down in battle at times:
Ezekiel 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before Me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.
In short, if you're not going to stand in the gap on behalf of the land then who will? It's the…

The Ridiculous Roman Catholic View That Marriage Must Be Done Inside Their Church or It's Invalid

I remembered reading through the seven sacraments or ordinances of the Roman Catholic institution in a catechism. One of the teachings is that marriage must be treated as a sacrament. What it also implies is that if your marriage is done in a civil court that even if it was duly registered, that both couples were in a sexually pure union then it's not a marriage. So does that mean that a person can marry in a civil court, get divorced and marry his next spouse in the Roman Catholic institution?

Let's address the issue of civil marriage that is pure and holy. In short there was no incest, no adultery and it was between two people who are eligible for marriage. So why should the Roman Catholic institution even think that two people who got married with the sexually pure prerequisites in the eyes of God should be rejected. Is it because unless it's a priest who performs the marriage then the marriage can't be validated? It's a problem with how Roman Catholics have thei…

Don't Forget That the Roman Catholic Institution Has a Very Long History of Inciting Sedition

The Roman Catholic institution has its long fraudulent history of claiming to be the "One True Church that was founded n 33 A.D. - Holy, Catholic and Apostolic". The word catholic is a synonym for universal but the disciples were never first called Catholics in Antioch but Christians (Acts 11:26). Catholic was used as an old world for universal which some people today are allergic to that word because Catholic has been used to describe people who are members of the Roman Catholic institution. What can be talked about now is the fact that the Roman Catholic institution has had a long history of inciting sedition in governments. While they claim it to be doing the "work of God" or as the Jesuits say "Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam" or "For the greater glory of God." but is it really?

Doing some study of the history of the Vatican has it shown that the Inquisition and later the Jesuit Order have a lot of bloody rags to answer for. Did you know that many ki…

Understanding Ignatius of Antioch's Statement on the Eucharist

It's already expected that Roman Catholicism takes Scriptures out of context and/or purposely misreads it. If they can't even handle the Word of God with reverence then I don't expect them to handle anything else with reverence except it be the writing of the past Popes and the Roman Catholic priests. One such man is the Christian bishop or overseer. In case Roman Catholics want to argue that the term "bishop" would prove he's one of their kind then they are mistaken. To be a bishop according to 1 Timothy 3:1-7 is to be a church leader. Besides, the same passage says that bishops must be family men of moral dignity which is impossible for a Roman Catholic priest who's bound to celibacy. Please note 1 Corinthians 7:35-37 is not a command for priests to stay single all their lives!
Now here's a popular misquote from the very passage of Ignatius of Antioch to justify the doctrine of transubstantiation: They abstain from the eucharist and from prayer, bec…

Testimony of Former Jesuit Priest Victor J. Affonso

To Follow Jesus Without Compromise by Victor J. Affonso
Why I joined the Society of Jesus
At the age of 23, I was a successful commercial artist on the verge of going abroad where a job was awaiting me. I was happy at the prospect of leaving India and thereby also escaping the terrible anguish caused of seeing the misery of the poor in the streets of Bombay.
Political saviors like Gandhi and Nehru had failed in giving true freedom and justice to India’s poor majority. Murder and divisions assailed “independent” India, and so it still is today. All the social works were but a few drops of water in a desert. Yet there was still one solution left: The words of Jesus kept coming to me during prayer, “…For with God ALL things are possible” (Mark 10:27). “Don’t run away!” On another day I heard the words, “Follow My Son — Jesus!” This word finally led me to leave the world and join the Society of Jesus, a missionary order that promised by its very title, its “Spiritual Exercises” and its C…

What Does Pisseth Against the Wall Mean?

It's really getting bad for some of my Independent Fundamental Baptist brethren to actually even take the words "pisseth against the wall" which appears at least six times in 1 Samuel 23:22, 1 Samuel 25:34, 1 Kings 14:10, 1 Kings 16:11, 1 Kings 21:21 and 2 Kings 9:8 where the King James actually has the words "pisseth against the wall".  Now I am a King James only-ist but I do not support the stupid interpretation of "pisseth against the wall" by some IFB preachers who have become in some way similar to the Catholic Faith Defenders that they argue against when they should spend their time soulwinning.  Actually I even heard that rather outrageous "pisseth against the wall" sermon by Steven Anderson that was so taken out of context.
So what does pisseth against the wall mean? Let us take a look at these six verses and take it on a exegetic view NOT an eisegetic (out of context) view:
1 Samuel 23:22- "And so more also do God unto the ene…

God's Curse Upon Gambling!

One of the greatest hypocrisies that people are facing right now is the sin of legalized gambling. Why do I dare say it is hypocritical? It's because for one legalized gambling promotes all type of filth. We have laws against adultery but not against pornography, we have laws against stealing but not against gambling which is really a sin. Today, Christians must voice out not only against legalized prostitution and legalized pornography, they must also voice against legalized gambling. 1 Timothy 6:10 is true that in these days, the love for money is the root of all evil in the secular world plus gambling is mainly rooted upon the love for money. We ought to think that in every way, money is not evil but the love for it is really evil. Gambling in itself is fed because of the love of money. Pastor Mike Stahl a Baptist preacher had also revealed the ill effects of gambling, in truth it is a very lucrative business that sadly destroys lives. To be honest, gambling has been one of th…
