THE GOSPEL OF THE DAMNED
This is the same false prosperity gospel of Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, John Avanzini, Kong Hee, Joseph Prince, Brian Houston, Joyce Meyer and many others.
Christ’s apostles are clear:
“But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.” Galatians 1:8. (Emphasis added.)
This is the Apostle Paul giving a good summary of the Christian gospel:
“Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.
For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance:
that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
and that he appeared to Cephas, and then to the Twelve.” 1 Corinthians 15:1-5. (Emphasis added.)
For these men to make the claim that Jesus Christ died to make people financially rich is to make God himself to be a liar. Here is what God says about Jesus’ death:
“Now, however, I am on my way to Jerusalem in the service of the Lord’s people there. For Macedonia and Achaia were pleased to make a contribution for the poor among the Lord’s people in Jerusalem. They were pleased to do it, and indeed they owe it to them. For if the Gentiles have shared in the Jews’ spiritual blessings, they owe it to the Jews to share with them their material blessings.” Romans 15:25-27
When Christ died, we as gentiles received the Jew’s spiritual blessings. And these blessings are far greater than any material blessing.
Why do Christians claim these accursed men are legitimate ministers when the scriptures clearly expose them for what they are? What does Paul say about people like Creflo Dollar?
The Apostle has this to say about them:
“I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him. But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.
I do not think I am in the least inferior to those “super-apostles.” I may indeed be untrained as a speaker, but I do have knowledge. We have made this perfectly clear to you in every way.
[…] And I will keep on doing what I am doing in order to cut the ground from under those who want an opportunity to be considered equal with us in the things they boast about. For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.” 2 Corinthians 11:2-6, 12-15. (Emphasis added.)
Are you someone who puts up with Creflo Dollar “easily enough?”
