When Shepherds Devour the Sheep...




Nice.

What amazes me more than the greed and contempt for Jesus and for the true Christian Church is the cultish devotion of the sheep who are being sheared by these wolves. These "ministers" never seem to run out of victims, people willing to buy into their theology of glory. These self-servants are only able to carry out their avarice because people are willing to send them money.

It only serves to suggest that there is more than slick salesmanship afoot here - something more than meets the eye.

Hopefully, the people who will inevitably become disillusioned with this kind of thing will not give up on the real way in which God works: the theology of the cross.

When I was with the Pentecostals, I did receive Kenneth Copeland's Believer's Voice of Victory magazine. Duplantis would have an article regularly.

Considering how the Word of Faith churches work, this is what he'd might say:

"TOUCH NOT MINE ANOINTED!!1!"
"God wants the best for us. This house is proof."
"I confessed that I would get this house and plane, all for the Lord. To go against that is to be in league with Satan."

Jesse Duplantis is my favorite false teaching heretic by far!
