Church Where's The Data To Support The Prosperity Gospel???


Reader the following post is a Facebook post from a young man who is asking the church to show data for all the money that they have collected over the years. He goes on to say he was in these churches and watched TBN for over 20 years and there was never any data to support the preaching of the prosperity gospel. When you preach "prosperity" based off of SEED giving (money) then by now there should be data sets of case study material that show how people in the congregation have amassed wealth.



 This can't be nebulous because people are giving tangible money, quantifiable monetary gifts that supply church budgets and pay salaries of the pastors and staff. How do you know how many members you have and the exact tithing records BUT you have NO DATA on how they are doing economically? This is GROSSLY unacceptable and belligerently negligent. 

This is not Kingdom "business". You know how many people are not tithing but you don't know how many people's net worth have gone up? You can't talk about tangible "kingdom" investment into the entity called the church and then tell people God will bless them outside of that entity. 

NOPE, that is not how investment works. If I invest in Nike I should get a return on the investment from Nike, not Apple. Oh, these are gifts, not investments, so how do you require a 10% tax/tithe as a gift? This is bad theology.

  1. Miss Ann,

    It has been established in the WORD of God that tithe was for the Levites because they had no inheritance in the Promised Land. The LORD God was their portion.

    “The priests the Levites, and all the tribe of Levi, shall have no part nor inheritance with Israel: they shall eat the offerings of the Lord made by fire, and his inheritance. Therefore shall they have no inheritance among their brethren: the Lord is their inheritance, as he hath said unto them. And this shall be the priest's due from the people, from them that offer a sacrifice, … The firstfruit also of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the first of the fleece of thy sheep, shalt thou give him. For the Lord thy God hath chosen him out of all thy tribes, to stand to minister in the name of the Lord, him and his sons for ever.” (Deuteronomy 18:1-5)

    When we come to the New Testament, Jesus Christ did not need to reemphasize tithe. Because he is now the High Priest (Hebrews 4:15) and his offering for our sin was once and for all (Hebrews 10:1-10).

    What the “properity gospellers” have done, is to flip the scriptures to their advantage. And they are smiling all the way to the bank (mega churches, holidays on cruise ships, enormous houses, private jets, black card access rights, and the list goes on ).

    And the church members?

    Well, if the preachers can keep them coming in to tithe regularly, that is well and good. Just give out a “free” vehicle or house; have a “member” (in this case an imposter), testify of how God has blessed them tenfold through tithing, every now and then. That’s all that matters.

    There will never be data. You keep asking for data and they will throw at you “touch not the Lord’s anointed” or “ye men of little faith” statements.

    Believers who have understood the WORD of God, don’t need to look for the data. It doesn’t exist.

    Y’all have been tricked.

    The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall NOT want…

  2. They don't want to keep no#s and data related to the prosperity gospel.

    Because they know the prosperity gospel (be it scripture or by the numbers) doesn't have a leg to stand on.

    Prosperity gospel mainly benefits the pastor and his family and occasionally the actual church building through better sitting, and a nicer parking lot.

  4. What Data there is none. Oh yes it is. The data is . The pastors mansions , designer's clothes, the Bentleys, the Mercedes-Benz, the Rolls Royce, the Aston Martin.The chauffeurs, the maids and butler's , the chef's, the wives everything they want and needs and don't needs but GREEDS for, the children and grandchildren PRIVATE schools. That's just the beginning. That's the only DATA that's available to the gullible people that keeps being fools by believing in paying. Tithes cause the pastor who is really trying to be the new Biblical Master of manipulation. It's time to wake up out of sleep. Stop paying tithes. JEWS don't pay tithes and they are TRULY BLESSED. I don't know a poor one. But I do some poor black folks that have to go to Jewish Family Services to get help. Cause there church they belong to, pay tithes to, give money to pastors birthday, pastors anniversary, wife birthday, wife sendoff for Women's International Convention won't do anything for them. Yes Lord !!!
