Creflo Dollar's Prosperity Gospel finds followers and critics
Prosperity ministers preach that God rewards the faithful with wealth and spiritual gifts. Pastors such as T.D. Jakes, Dollar, and Joel Osteen have become the Prosperity Gospel's most well known preachers, building mega churches and business empires with a message equating piety with prosperity.
The list above states the names of those with their name in lights now, but many before have been passing this con along for close to 150 years or more.
The words of Jesus Christ dispel these acts. Thus what these prosperity messengers have done is told their congregations to follow them, not the Lord. To revere and honor the so-called House of the Lord built by the congregations charitable giving.
The prosperity messengers know that mankind needs a place to get married and buried in so that is what they promote.
When in fact the place of the divine presence today is in mankind that have followed the dictates of our King the Lord Jesus.
The other startling fact is that Jesus message was that of going out not staying in under the ruling of those who sought out and told others that they were Holy.
We cannot refute that those that have followed the dictates of our King need energizing from time to time by others for we do and that too has been declared and can be read in the Bible.

Um, not to many people show up at the gospel topix...I pop through ever once in a blue moon. But anyhow....my take on all these prosperity ministers is as follows>> bring back stake burnings and strike up some matches and get da torching and roasting. Especially for Creflo beat his daughter down like Rhianna/Chris Brown. He made a statement that all tithers that don't give in his church should be lined up and shot execution style which is an appalling statement but at the same time fitting since he appeared in the LUDICROUS "welcome to Atlanta" video like a pimp/gangsta. smh
