It’s a cold rainy Wednesday today in beautiful Corfu Greece. As much as I despise the rain it’s good to get a day off. Today could be the day my Toshiba returns from the shop but I’m not holding my breath!
Tonight at 10pm eastern I will be joining Michael Loomis on The Antithesis Hour. Despite our vast theological differences I really do enjoy doing the program. You can listen live on www.ad70.net or download it from either of our sites on Thursday morning.
Now for my yearly Paula White rant:-) Continue reading
In the video below, Jim Bakker is heard powerfully renouncing the prosperity gospel, which in reality is no gospel at all;
I have argued for years with WOFers, primarily the misuse of scripture this movement employs, with little effect, so let me try some simple logic.
The central premise of the faith movement is; to demonstrate your “faith” to God, you must give to the “camouflage Christian” till it hurts and by doing so, God will reward your faith by restoring and increasing your wealth.

Sometimes the things people fall for amaze me….particularly the folks who adhere to the “prosperity gospel. I’ve been what I generously consider “debating” the merits of the “prosperity gospel” with a severally deluded dude who honestly believes that 3John 2 is “God’s master plan for our lives”……
Yesterday I was commenting on one of the “prosperity gospel” blogs when the owner….a dude named Chee…. responded to my assertion that the Apostles were poor with this insightful gem “The idea of poor Apostles is a religious invention. The Bible has made it clear that Jesus died poor to make us rich. If the Apostles were poor, we can throw away the Bible because it is a lie.”
Now, let’s see what my bible says about the Apostles to see if they were indeed rich….. Continue reading
