Do some serious research on Joel Osteen, Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland, John Hagee, Paul Crouch, and on and on the list goes, and you will soon find that these prosperity teachers are fleecing the flock of God - many of whom are giving out of their need to support them, while they are living luxuriously in their penthouses, flying extremely expensive private planes, owning multi-million dollar homes, giving money to their relatives as well as other perks including free housing and so on, staying in the most expensive hotels, wearing the finest suits, and wearing rolexes and on and on that list could go.
It is amazing to me that anyone could be so blind to what is going on when wolves in sheeps clothing live fat off their supporters knowing that a good number of them are barely making it month to month, and still give their hard earned money to support these pretenders.
Spiritual riches are vastly more important than material riches, and these people have twisted and perverted the gospel and they will have their just reward.
As the case was with Lazarus and the rich man, they have their reward in this life. Unless they repent they will reap the rewards in the life to come that the rich man in this story received.
For those who say we are not to judge. Study your Bible beginning with I Corinthians 2:15, I Corinthians 6:2-5, Matthew 12:33 and John 7:24. We are encouraged to judge by the Lord Jesus Christ himself as well as the apostle Paul. The judgment must be based on the Word of God and we are exhorted to judge "righteous judgment."
