Are Prominent Preachers Under Attack ?

To be completely honest pastors now days have been criticized in many ways over money theology and expensive possessions like cars big mansions and having alot of money but not only pastors are criticized for having those things, entertainers actors and as long as you have alot of money someone somewhere will criticize you.

Prosperity Preaching

This is the most hottest topic of them all preaching prosperity now the bible does talk about having alot but it's not that specific tho it's pretty clear, but Jesus in the new testament did not sound like someone who would agree with prosperity preaching for an example in matthew chapter 19:16 when Jesus was approached by a rich young man who had alot of possessions he ask Jesus what good thing must i do to enter into the kingdom of heaven and Jesus told him to obey a series of commandments and then the rich young man responded i have obeyed all o those commandments what else do i do then Jesus said go and sell all your possessions and give to the poor and you may follow me and be my disciples, the rich young man left sad and grieved because of what he had own then Jesus said to his disciples that it will be truly hard for a rich man to get into the kingdom of heaven and as he said it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to get into the kingdom of heaven, so clearly it seems tho as if Jesus disagree with prosperity preaching does he? saying that being rich will keep you from getting you into heaven seems very awkward now think about what jesus meant by telling the rich young man sell his possessions and follow him as his disciple, if you are rich and you forget about God and couldn't care less about Jesus Christ you gained the whole world but you are going to lose your only soul that's what Jesus meant. Now preaching prosperity did not come from creflo dollar it has been preached for years but it was not a big deal mainly because of traditional christian beliefs, money is not something that is known for being preached in the church and yes i personally believe that we should embrace wealth and riches and material things but remember who made it possible for you to get it in the first place.


Prominent Bishops Televangelist or Ministers have been targeted not only for what they preach but also for what they have, so of course a multimillionaire pastor driving to church every Sunday in a Bentley does not sound at all typical but times have changed and we are living in a new era where anyone can be famous and capitalize on it like for an example Sarah Palin's daughter being on the show dancing with the stars? and only because she's Sarah Palin's daughter that's amazing now days with young kids with multimillion dollar websites and people who dropped out of college and became billionaires don't be so surprised to see a pastor driving a Rolls Royce.
