Yeah, you do that!

Let's see, the White's are spiritual leaders, counselors and mentors to thousands of their "followers". They are, supposedly, well grounded in the scriptures and constantly before God in prayer. They've made a decision - After much prayer I assume - to dissolve their marriage.

So your plan is to ignore their free-will decision and pray that they, instead, do what YOU want them to do.

Hhhhmmmm....

Now that I think about it your strategy actually does make perfect sense...

...to anyone who has undergone a frontal lobotomy.

How foolish can you be?

The Lord said,
Matt 19:[9] And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

How are they to going to get around this one ?

They use the church to get money to live like royality. They take the money from working people and stuff their pockets. They should have kept enough to live like everyone else and gave the rest to do the work of the Lord that they claim is the truly "Great one". It is people like this that give churchs a bad name. Just think about how much good they could have done if they were not so greedy.
Money is the root of all evil and just because you are a preacher does not make it any less true.
They are no better than Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker.
Their down fall is all about money. If you want to give your money to a church; try to give it to one that really does the Lords work.

You know what I am sad about . Is that alot of women that listened to the pastor found strenght in there or her teachings and found there relationship with God through them or her. I know people are saying what the bible says about them and all of that is true, but what about the ones that are babies in chirst? what about the ones that only knew god through there teachings the ones that where still growing? The ones that staying in there marriage because they want to please God? What about the reputation the stain on God,s name, the shame on his people heart? The lost hope, A another reason for people to leave there husband or wife because the people of chirst have done it, I didn't say hollywood I said christ. where are they to go now like parents living childern to survive on there own it is sad... No you are not to look to man or women ,Only to God .. But that is why he calls us and when he calls us please know that there is no turning back to the flesh it's either live right or don't take the Job. And I say pray for stronger and wiser men and women of God because the times are near and for our childern!!!

It appears that neither of these women submitted to their husbands. Once didn't even bother to carry her husband's name. That should have been a clue to the Body of Christ. After being sponsored by T.D. Jakes, both of these women went from being plain janes to Glamor Queens. They became too full of themselves,and made no room for humility and for preaching of the Gospel. They merchandised the gospel in exchange for their souls and misled millions of other souls.

They pimped God's word to gain worldly possessions! Jesus died and said it was finished. Stop paying these people for what God has already given freely.

This is what Jesus said:
(Matthew 21:12-13). . .And Jesus entered into the temple and threw out all those selling and buying in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. 13 And he said to them:“It is written,

‘My house will be called a house of prayer,’
but YOU are making it a cave of robbers.”

I Agree, They're trying to teach new Christians about Jesus and the Scriptures, then they go and do something that defies what the Scriptures say about marriage

"He who has not sin cast the first stone."
I believe that we all are in need of God's murcies.Pastors and church leaders carry a heavy burden,and they suffer just like normal people do.They also go through their struggles. It happens to the smallest and the greatest.
That is why we,(church) need to place our eyes on Jesus who is the only perfect one. Jesus will never fail you.
It would be wonderful if this marriage can be saved for the sake of the childern that suffers the most when a Divorce divides a family.
It would also be a testimony to the world, that God is able to put together broken marriges.
Our prayers are with them, as they seek guidance in this most important matter. It is time for the church to pray for them, instead of judging any one person.

too bad they are divorcing. They are role models to our children and youth, whether or not that was part of their vision, because they are in the limelight. They over overemphasized prosperity, but I am aware they used lots of their assets to help the poor. But,....Jesus preached the Cross, and people were healed and delivered. He didn't quit teaching the Cross to preach healing and deliverance, since these things were exciting and drew crowds. No, those great miracles were just what followed His preaching of the Word of redemption and salvation. The Cross includes those benefits, but any preaching on these things is so empty without repentence and the Cross. And, it leaves devastation in its wake.

Do you ever actually read (study) the Bible? Do you even own a Bible?

Ths scriptures are very clear on the duty of the church where judgement is concerned...

1 Corinthians 5:11-13 reads:

"But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?

But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person."

We are required to judge those in the body of Christ. This is not the same as the Great White Throne Judgement, but is intended to ensure that sinful behavior in the body of Christ does not go unchecked.

This is why leaders who fall into sinful behavior must be "sat down", instead of having their followers (worshippers) stupidly spouting "don't judge", "pray for them", "it's none of our business, God will handle it".

Try putting your faith in God/Jesus instead of putting it in the Paula and Randy Whites, Creflo Dollars, Fred Prices, T.D. Jakeses,, Kenneth Copelands, Juanita Bynums and other money-hungry, pimp preachers.

Try believing God for a better understanding of his Word instead of believing him for more money, cars, jewelry, designer clothing, boats, bigger houses, etc.

And, last but not least, stop making excuses for sinful, ungodly behavior on the part of members of the body of Christ.

"Abstain from all appearance of evil." - 1 Thessalonians 5:22

Jesus words:

Matthew 23:33)...Serpents, offspring of vipers, how are YOU to flee from the judgment of Ge•hen´na?

(Matthew 15:14)...Blind guides is what they are. If, then, a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit.”

I guess he was wrong, huh ?

You assume that we are giving our money to Paula White because we have compassion for her. The true test is when God will judge her. Not man. Man can destroy the flesh, but God can destroy both the soul and the flesh. Have some compassion and pray for the lady if you think she is a crook and stop repeating yourself on all these posts!
