Ever hear of Mark Gorman? Well, you’re about to.
If you’ve followed my blog for any length of time, you know that I feature two kinds of teachers here… the really good, or the REALLY bad. Mr. Gorman’s really bad.
The title of the featured video below is “How Much Can You Let Go of and Still Smile?” Now, one thing you need to know about Word of Faith (WOF)/Prosperity ministers is that they always have a pitch. Some are clever, some are laughable. So, how would I grade Mark Gorman’s pitch? Well, it’s not clever, and I’m not laughing. Here is a little of Gorman’s logic (taken from the beginning of the video):
“One of the things I’ve learned as I’ve studied the principles in God’s Word is this, that God wants us to prosper. But, the way He determines the level of our prosperity is based on how much we can let go of and still smile. So, if you can’t release that money and still smile, then you can’t be trusted with any more than you have right now.”
Wow! That’s quite the intro, isn’t it? Hold up, he’s not finished. He goes on to say:
“How do I prove I don’t love it? Can you let go of it and still smile?”
Guess where he wants you to “let go of it?” You guessed it….right in his hands.
I’ve heard many pitches, and his is no different, just wrapped in a different type of logic, and every bit of it is based in greed and fraud. See the video below and beware of him.
