Heresy Exports to Africa!

Thanks to Phil Johnson for the heads up on this video. I know and have seen the true need in Africa for the pure, unadulterated gospel of Jesus Christ to be preached to those who have never heard. So, I am disgusted when I see the likes of Benny Hinn, Joyce Meyers, Kenneth Hagin and all the other false professors of Christ exporting the heresy of prosperity gospel to Africa. The poor people in this video have still not heard the truth, but they are mixing their own animistic religions with a veneer of “Christianity” with the hopes of becoming much better off.

I have personally watched charlatans like these seen in this video asking their audience to “give $100 US dollars in order to receive $100 blessings, $50 US dollars to receive $50 blessings, etc.” Yes, in America we have been blessed with much in the way of material wealth, but if all we are exporting is a false gospel, a few Africans will wind up wealthy, but they and their followers will only find themselves in hell forever.

  1. I was flipping through the channels a couple of years ago and landed on Benny Hinn. He some guy on there, I don’t remember his name, that was recieving a “word from the Lord”. They were trying to raise some money. The guy said something to the likes of this, “God is telling me that someone out there needs to send in $100″, then he went on to say “no, wait a minute, he is saying send $200″, this went on until the guy got up to over $1000.
    I changed the channels in disgust.
    I guess God seen that some poor sap was going to send in $100 so He figured He could get more out them and kept telling that guy to ask for more. Kind of like an auctioneer.

    2Peter 2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

    These prosperity guys do sell their blessings to the highest bidders. TBN telethons make me sick.

    What sad times we live in.

  2. That was heartbreaking! Only God can give true hope and if all they want is hope for the temproal (material things) then they have NO hope!

  3. The child of God who correctly understands his spiritual poverty before Holy God, sees the “material blessings” as more of a burden than a benefit. Indeed, wealth brings its own concerns, friends we never knew, and seduced many to build more barns rather than realize everything is of and for the glory of the Lord.

    This book http://epm.org/books/safely_homeDetail.php takes a deep look at the issue of security – true security in Christ and false security in wealth. It breaks my heart to recall the story line, just as this video does.

    Who is not spiritually bankrupt? Of what use is money to one who knows this? May God have mercy on us all – and those dear people in Africa who are being lied to.

  4. The very tragic thing to all this is: how many will turn away from the Bible, or anything “Christian”, when they are not so “blessed” with the material wealth they have so gullibly and trustingly believed they will receive from this “Christian” God? Thus innoculated against “Christianity”, how many will turn back to their cultural religions, making the job of the next missionary effort that much harder?

  5. Saw this yesterday and was in shock that this guy is so blatant. Seems the Western prosperity guys are, for the most part, a tad more subtle [these days, anyhow].

    This guy, the so called Rev. is a snake.

  6. It’s amazing how similar the behaviors exhibited in this video are to the same shenanigans seen in America. From the same damnable, heretical, Christ-less, cross-less gospel, the babbling tongues, the convulsing body movements, and even the wolf’s bright and ugly clothing (ala Benny Hinn). It goes to show that Satan uses the same tactics regardless of the content.
