Could you imagine the apostle Paul joining hands with the pagans in Rome to reach out to conquer such societal ills as fractured families and fatherless children? It’s a noble cause, to be sure, but that wasn’t Paul’s mission. His mission was to preach Christ and Him crucified.
Far too often, many make the mistake of believing that by cleaning up society, they can improve life. Sadly, this never works because even if there were no divorce or fatherless children, man would still be lost in their sins. You can clean up a pig, but it will still be a pig. You can dress up a sinner in their Sunday best, but they will still be a sinner. How sad our modern ministers don’t know this.
In an article on the Christian Post, Modalist and Prosperity minister T. D. Jakes stated:
“It doesn’t matter who you are or where you are in life, everyone is looking for answers, and MegaFest is the place to find them,” Jakes has said about the festival. “Whether you come on your own or with family and friends, one thing is for sure: people attending MegaFest will find joy, fun, great music, encouraging community and powerful messages of inspiration, hope and purpose.” (Online Source.)
With such speakers as New Age Priestess Oprah Winfrey, who famously said when referring to Jesus, “There couldn’t possibly be just one way!” T. D. Jakes, and Joel Osteen, one thing people attending will not find is the gospel.
