Money Come to Me!!!

Here is a video of Leroy Thompson preaching at Creflo Dollar’s Atlanta church.  Not one time will you hear the name Jesus mentioned, and not one time will you hear a call to repentance before the righteous and holy God.  It’s all about MONEY.  When times get tough, and they will, let’s see how their god (money) saves them.  While watching this video, I said to myself, “These people are actually laying money on the altar.  They’re actually speaking to money!”  It tells you volumes.

Here’s another video from the same service:

    AND JESUS WEPT.

    HOW DO THEY JUSTIFY TALKING ABOUT MONEY ALL THE TIME. NO DOUBT THERE ARE A FEW PASSAGES THAT DEAL WITH GOD BLESSING OUR GIVING, BUT IT REALLY ISN’T A TOPIC THAT DOMINATES SCRIPTURE. THESE CROOKS CLAIM THAT JESUS SPOKE ABOUT MONEY MORE THAN ANY OTHER TOPIC, HOWEVER THOSE REFERENCES WERE OFTEN METAPHORICAL. OR IN SOME CASES THE ISSUE WAS THE LOVE OF MONEY OR GREED. HOW THAT TRANSLATES INTO EVERY SERMON BEING ABOUT MONEY AND HOW TO GET MORE OF IT IS BEYOND ME.

  2. Carol says:

    I find it ironic that this takes place in a church where the “leader’s” last name is DOLLAR!

    It reminds me of the strange fire offerings that took place in the OT and how God dealt with those leaders.

    Tragic.

  3. Carol says:

    They trust in silver and gold, but not in God!

    Truly serving a golden calf…an idol they made of their own evil desires.

  4. Jones says:

    The Word of God says,’Give and it shall be given unto you, good measure, pressed down and shaken together, shall men give unto your bosom’, Luke 6:38. Pastors Creflo and Leroy are acting in obedience to the Word of God. Your criticism has a big misunderstanding of Kingdom principles. If Christians do not the work of God, then who should? Do you think the world will? Definitely not.
    The Word of God say: ‘Believe in His prophets, and you will prosper’,2 Chron 20:20. There is no follower of Christ who will not be criticised by worldy people.
    Jesus was also criticised. The servant is not greater than the master. I will encourage the anointed men of God to continue to preach the incorruptible Word of God and not be bothered by worldy criticism. They must be Christians on God’s terms and not on man’s approval. I am not even an American, but I am a born again child of God who understands Kingdom principles. To you critics, ask the Lord to open your spiritual eyes that you may see.

    Jones,
    what does ‘it’ reference to in Luke 6:38? If you say money, material possessions and such, then what do you do with 1 Timothy 6:6-9 ‘But godliness {actually} is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment. For we have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of it either. If we have food and covering, with these we shall be content.’
    And what do you make of our Lord, who had no place to lay His head? Or the Apostle Paul, who was jailed, beaten, and all the while sang praises to God? And what about Acts 14:22 ‘strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying that through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God. ‘
    Nowhere in scripture does Christ teach this name it claim it garbage. It’s just the opposite, “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before {it hated} you.”John 15:18
    Proverbs 30:7-9, Two things I asked of You, Do not refuse me before I die: Keep deception and lies far from me, Give me neither poverty nor riches; Feed me with the food that is my portion, That I not be full and deny {You} and say, “Who is the LORD?” Or that I not be in want and steal, And profane the name of my God.
    That’s what God’s word truly teaches, be content with what you have, and quit looking for comfort and pleasure in this life.

    Laurie,
    God never intended for us to live in poverty and lack. The Bible says ‘He takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servant’, Psalm 149:4.
    In 2 Cor 8:6-9, the Bible says:’JESUS, WHO WAS RICH, BECAME POOR SO THOSE WHO ARE
    POOR COULD BECOME RICH’. God does not have a problem with us having money, he has a problem in money having us. Here are some more scriptures to help you.
    Deut. 8:18
    But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get
    wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this
    day.
    Isaiah 48:17
    Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God
    which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.
    2 Chron. 26:5
    And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of
    God: and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him to prosper.
    Genesis 24:40
    And he said unto me, The Lord, before whom I walk, will send his angel with thee,
    and prosper thy way; and thou shalt take a wife for my son of my kindred, and of my
    father’s house:
    2 RICHES MUST NOT BE OUR PRIORITY.
    It is not sinful for a Christian to be rich, as long as he is a good steward of God’s money. He can sponsor a crusade in which millions can get saved and know Jesus as their Lord and saviour.

    About the Apostle Paul, just read Philippians 4 and find out what Paul said about the gifts he received from his Philippian partners. He said he does not desire a gift from them, but he desires a fruit which abounds to their account, Phil 4:17.

    When we read the Bible, we need revelation and understanding from God. If we try to understand with the natural mind, we will be like the critics of Pastors Le Roy and Creflo. We will then miss what God has in store for us. If we don’t give as the Lord leads us, we will never walk in the fullness of our Godly inheritance. The critics also mistook the anointing of the Holy Ghost for hypnosis.

    Remember, natural things are naturally discerned and spiritual things are spiritually discerned.

      Jones, I have a question. What about the missionaries who live overseas who don’t have two nickels to rub together? What about our brothers and sisters in Christ who live in nations who are hostile to the gospel, and they are martyred for their faith, imprisoned, suffer with having their children beheaded, tortured… what about them? Did God not prosper them?

      The prosperity message is an American invention, it’s not Biblical.

  7. Laurie says:

    Jones,
    my bible reads Psalm 149:4 this way, ‘For the Lord takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with salvation.’
    How about this from Job 21:13, ‘”They spend their days in prosperity, and in peace they go down to Sheol. ”
    Either God’s word contradicts, or someone is misinterpreting scripture.
    Let’s take this verse from Job 36:11, “If they listen and serve him, they complete their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasantness.”
    We have a promise of prosperity here, so now we must get the proper meaning. The Hebrew term for prosperity in this verse is ‘towb’ which means ‘good, pleasant, agreeable’ {this is an adjective}. The verb use of towb means ‘to be good, be pleasing, be joyful, be beneficial, be pleasant, be favourable, be happy, be right’.
    NOWHERE does this reference to money, or personal possessions.
    When you go back in the original language, you will find the true meaning of God’s promise of prosperity.

    Jesus Christ taught this from Luke 9:23, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.”
    To deny self is to empty one’s self of his/her own desires, ‘what I want’, ‘what I think I deserve’, to be willing to disregard his own interests or to prove false to himself; to let go of everything he/she considers valuable and pick up their cross, die to self, be willing to die for Christ if need be, and follow Jesus.
    How can someone who desires the temporal riches of this life truly understand his/her dependence on Christ? How can such a person see a need for Him? How do you suppose those Laodiceans got into that lukewarm state?
    “Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’–and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked–I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, [that] the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.” Revelation 3:17,18

    ‘And Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How difficult it will be for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God!” And the disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said to them again, “Children, how difficult it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.”–Mark 10:23-25

    “There was a rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day. “And at his gate was laid a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, “who desired to be fed with what fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover, even the dogs came and licked his sores. “The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s side. [fn] The rich man also died and was buried, “and in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side. “And he called out, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in anguish in this flame.’ But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that you in your lifetime received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner bad things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish.” Luke 16:19-25
    Is being wealthy a sin? More often than not, temporal riches will lead astray those who desire such, their thoughts are continually on wanting comfort in the here and now. BUT, that is not the distinguishing marks of a true believer, “Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. ” 2 Timothy 3:12
    This world is NOT our home, we should continually strive to do the work of the Lord, living holy lives, and making Christ number one in our lives, not worrying about our bank accounts.
    What do you tell those believers in India, Africa, China, and such places…many who don’t even have a home…do you tell them God wants you to be rich and not them? Do you say, ‘good luck, take care, hope all goes well’?
    “for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’ “Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do [it] to one of the least of these, you did not do [it] to Me.’ And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” Matthew 25:42-46
    Prayerfully, from these verses you can see why there is no extreme with God. If you have an abundance, God expects you to take that abundance and give to those in need. That way, NO ONE is storing up wealth for themselves.
    The ‘prosperity’ gospel is NOT the true gospel, it is a gospel that leads all who follow it down the broad road to destruction. It is a gospel that says ‘it’s okay to be rich’, but that is not what Christ teaches.
    I urge you to repent of your desires for earthly wealth, and ask God to have mercy on you. Read Hebrews chapter 11:16-37 and see the true champions of the faith.

  8. Jones says:

    Laurie,

    I don’t think we understand the Bible the same way. I have given you scriptures that speak about prosperity but our understanding is different. The Bible says in Matthew 6:33, ‘Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be given unto you’. The Bible did not say Seek only the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. If you see prosperity as a sin, the I won’t agree with you. If all Christians are poor and miserable, then satan will laugh at the church. The evil one will know that it will be so hard for the church to fulfill the great commission of our Lord Jesus Christ of preaching the Gospel to all creation. There are countries in the 1070 window in which millions of people have never even heard the Word Jesus. Without the preaching of the Word, those souls will perish and go to Hell. I believe in God and His incorruptible Word. The aim was not to win the arguement, if you don’t have the properity revelation, I pray that the Lord will reveal it to you. Money is not sinful, it is the love of money which is the root of all evil. If we love God and obey His Word, the He will supply all our needs according to His Riches in glory in Christ Jesus, Phil 4:19. May the Lord be gracious to you. Grace to you. That will be my last response now, the choice is yours. I know religion taught me to please God by being broke and miserable, but the true Gospel of Jesus taught me that I will have a hundred fold return now, in this time, Mark 10:29. The Lord Jesus sent Peter to take the money out of the mouth of the fish, Matt 17:27. I thank God that I am in a church that preaches prosperity. I am not saying that Jesus is a quick fix. God will not make us millionaires if we haven’t matured in our Christian walk. But that does not mean it is sinful for a Christian to be rich. The rich man that Jesus said he will not enter heaven is the man who is owned by riches and not by God. Remember, Job was the richest man in the east, but He still loved God
    and revered Him.
    We can be rich and still serve the Lord and be obedient to His will. Maybe none of this will get through to you. I suggest that you ask the Lord in your quiet time whether the prosperity that is being preached is true or not. Get it from the Master’s voice. He said “My sheep hear My voice”, John 10:10. Once again, grace to you.

  9. Jones says:

    Chrystal,

    If you know missionaries who live overseas and don’t have two nickels to rub together, why do you not bless them? Maybe the reason is that they are challenged by the anti prosperity believers in those areas. Do you know that there are unbelieving believers? An example is believers
    who think they will go to hell if they can become wealthy.
    Read 3 John 2, “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers”. We prosper as our souls prosper.
    If your soul has not prospered in financial prosperity, then you will be broke for sure. You can pray for the sick and God will heal them if your soul has prospered in healing, but you will still live in poverty if you don’t believe that God can make you wealthy.
    The prosperity message is definitely not an American invention, I am not American. I did not get the prosperity message from Americans, I got it from the Incorruptible Word of God.Why did Apostle John pray that we may prosper IN ALL THINGS? Go to the Lord and ask Him if prosperity is His will for us or not. I pray that the Lord will give you a better understanding of the prosperity which He is willng to give to His obedient children. Grace to you.

    • Chrystal says:

      So basically, you’re saying these missionaries and Christians are poor and persecuted because they don’t believe in the prosperity gospel. What about Stephen? What about early church believers who were fed to the Lions? What about the Apostle Paul, who spent the last years of his life in prison? What about Jesus, who had nowhere to lay His head?

      Is our faith in God and our relationship with Him to be based on how much money we have?

  10. Laurie says:

    Jones~ I think you simply want to be comfortable in this life, which is in direct opposition to what God’s word teaches. Why don’t you ask a benny hinn, creflo dollar, joyce meyer, mike murdoch for a loan? See how far that gets you. You also say,” I thank God that I am in a church that preaches prosperity “. Too bad your church doesn’t teach God’s word.

    I feel I have amply shown the clarity of scripture teaching against wealth as the main issue, even going so far as to take it back to the original language. You can follow Joel Osteen’s ‘best life now’ propaganda, but it is not the true gospel.
    I like Paul Washer’s comment on false teachers, he said,
    “Their god is their belly, but, they look like sheep; how is that? How is it that they look like sheep? By their flattering, smooth speech that in an age of tolerance makes you think they are men most full of love.
    They will never contradict, they will never create a scandal, they will never be offensive, they will never speak forth things to anger men. They have the smooth tongue of a serpent, and they flatter men, and they give carnal men exactly what they want.
    Let me tell you something about false teachers, you think so many times that people fall prey to false teachers, and that, in a sense, can be true, at times. But, I think the dominant theme in scripture is just the opposite. False teachers are God’s judgment on people who don’t want God…but, in the name of religion, plan on getting everything their carnal heart desires.
    That’s why a Joel Osteen is raised up; those people who sit under him are not victims of him, he is the judgment of God upon them…because they want exactly what he wants, and it’s not God!”

    No one can understand what God’s word says unless He opens their minds to His scriptures.

  11. Jon says:

    Jones~

    I recently completed a study on riches, and what god thinks about them, I Post it here for your benefit.

    Throughout history there have been notable things that motivate men to extraordinary efforts and accomplishments. Humanity’s history as we know it is not remembered with highlights on the times of peace and contentment; instead historians gauge the time by the struggles for power that went on during that particular era.

    One thing people have always fought over is wealth. Not necessarily money, but possessions of land, goods, or money in abundance. So what can I learn about “Our Obsession with the Possession?”
    The most accurate and ancient book strictly historically speaking is the bible. Much more importantly however, it is written by One who is outside the influence of time, untruth, and, and mortality. “Jah” the only true God gave us a book, which chronicles in painful detail, and majestic language, everything you could ask about ourselves.

    With the previous thought in mind, I am going to find answers to one question

    A. What does God say in his word about the pursuit of wealth?

    First, I think a definition of the phrase “Pursuit of Wealth”, will be helpful.

    * Pursue* means: To seek; to use measures to obtain
    To proceed in without following another
    To follow with haste, to chase

    * Riches* means
    Wealth;
    Opulence;
    Affluence;
    Possessions of; land, goods, or money in abundance

    So we could say anyone “chasin the American dream” is:

    “A Hunter chasing worldly wealth”

    Believe it or not; is one thing that the bible and many modern studies agree upon. Numerous secular non-religious studies have recognized that happiness cannot be bought. *1

    It is recognized in secular media that those making the most money, often have the highest stress levels in their lives. People who are making a lot of money are concerned about it. Large amounts of money generally are safeguarded with utmost care. There is an old story concerning this subject, which follows the adventures of two bills. One bill was a thousand dollar mark, the other a five. The thousand dollar bill was gloating about his high status in life, while the five dollar bill felt very small and worthless
    After a time however the higher ranking bill soon renounced his exalted view of himself, complaining that, “I never see the light, so often am I locked up in a safe.” While I chuckle at the irony of the story, I see a truth in application as well. The thousand dollar bill was literally blinded to the light by his monetary value, while the five dollar bill saw a great deal of light.

    God’s word say’s something quite similar to the old story of the bills. II Cor. 4:4 says that Satan has blinded the eyes of the unsaved so that they cannot see the light. As I see it (no pun intended) getting people to pursue wealth is one of his most effective strategies for blinding humanity’s eye’s. From my own limited experience I have observed that people with a love of wealth, are often spiritually destitute. Matthew 10:17-23 details the story of a young man “Almost Persuaded” but who remained lost because of the hold wealth had on his heart.*2

    When studying out wealth in the Bible, several verses must come to mind immediately, the foremost in my case being I Tim.6:10 “The love of money is the root of all evil.” But the verse doesn’t end there and I think it is important that it did not; I don’t believe the Apostle Paul was just giving us an out of the blue, blanket statement about the origins of evil. Looking at the passage as a whole a much more pointed truth emerges. In Vs’ 6-11 Jesus tells the Christian:

    “But godliness with contentment is great gain.
    For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
    And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
    But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
    For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
    But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.*I Tim. 6:6-11

    I think it is interesting that God would repeat himself in different words but essentially saying the same thing. (Vs’ 9, 10) It sounds to me like God wanted us to get the point so much he rephrased what he was saying just so there would be no mistakes. I think it is pretty plain. If you wish to be rich, if you are looking for wealth, get ready to have a miserable life. This is further emphasized in both Proverbs and Ecclesiastes by Solomon. Quite possibly the richest man in the history of the world, he commands: “Labour not to be rich cease from thine own wisdom.” Proverbs 23:4
    Solomon had literally all that the world could offer him, and at the end of his life he said nothing is worth chasing but wisdom. (Ecc. 2:1-15)

    Is then the pursuit of riches wrong?
    Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter. Fear god and keep his commandments for this is the whole duty of man. And to this young and inexperienced writer, Lay not up for yourselves treasures on the earth seems like a commandment, and failing that, Labor not to be rich surely is.

    However Gods word does encourage the pursuit of spiritual riches. Jesus said, lay not up for yourselves treasures on the earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and thieves break through and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven where moth and rust doth not corrupt and where thieves do not break in and steal.

    God is encouraging us here to be as adamant as we can be about obtaining spiritual riches. As I once heard a preacher say, “Get miserly about your spiritual wealth”

    I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich…Re 3:18

    Mr. 10:17 ¶ And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?
    Mr. 10:18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
    Mr 10:19 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.
    Mr 10:20 And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.
    Mr 10:21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
    Mr 10:22 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.
    Mr 10:23 And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
    Mr 10:24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
    Mr 10:25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

  12. Jones says:

    Laurie and Chrystal,

    Just out of curiosity, are you born again?
    I hope you will not question that as well.

    • Chrystal says:

      I fail to see anything in my statement that would warrant you questioning my salvation. Laurie’s either. After a comment like that, you’re treading on thin ice. Attacking the salvation of my posters won’t be tolerated, not when they are giving you Biblical proof of their point. Anything else like that, and your comments will be deleted.

  13. Laurie says:

    Jones, Yes, I am saved, which is why I understand that the bible does NOT teach any prosperity gospel.

    My salvation didn’t come because I ‘claimed a promise’…it only came after God brought me to my knees and broke my prideful, arrogant heart. After He did that, I cried out to Him.

    How do I know I’m saved? Because God has done a work in me, an inward change. In doing so, His Holy Spirit teaches me all truth; not some flashy preacher in a fancy three-piece suit whose just had his teeth whitened, wearing a Rolex watch, while his ‘beamer’ is parked out front. This preacher struts back and forth across the stage, screaming, ‘G-a-w-d wants you to have it all! Listen folks! G-a-w-d wants to give you everything! Can I get a witness? Come on everybody, sow a seed! You can’t outgive gawd!”
    While this ‘banty rooster’ struts back and forth, he continually wipes the ‘sweat’ from his brow and shouts, ‘Can you feel the anointing on this place?’ What a huckster!! And the poor deceived folks who are digging in their billfolds and pocketbooks to ‘give til it hurts’, so Mr. fancy pants can take their ‘seed’ and spend it on himself.
    I look to the examples found in God’s word, like John the Baptist who wore a suit of camel’s hair and ate wild honey and locusts, or the Apostle Paul who bore the marks of Christ on his body, being in shackles; or Stephen, who was so filled with the Spirit that his face shown as they stoned him for preaching God’s truth…these men are shining examples of true men of God. When the truth is proclaimed, the majority of the people will rebel against that truth as well as the man giving it. The most glorious example is the Lord Jesus Christ Himself, as He hung on a cross, bloody, beaten beyond recognition, cries out “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.”

    I’ve yet to find anything in the bible that says I must sow a seed, but there again, that’s the difference sitting under the true Godly preaching/teaching the Holy Spirit makes.

    The true Gospel has nothing to do with self, or wealth…which is exactly why the Lord commanded, ‘deny self, pick up your cross daily, and follow me’.
    All who obey this command will not have time to worry about temporal wealth, nor will they desire it.
