Ed Young: Prosperity Preacher / Heretic

Ed Young doesn’t understand the function and purpose of tithing.  It isn’t to serve as little more than the purchase of a lottery ticket which God will add to and return to you upon your ‘investment’.

A Texas megachurch believes so much in the promise of God’s blessings that it’s offering a full refund to tithers who don’t experience it.  Fellowship Church in Grapevine, Texas, has launched “The 90-Day Challenge,” which promises churchgoers, “that if you tithe for 90 days and God doesn’t hold true to his promise of blessings, we will refund 100% of your tithe,” the church said in a description of the event on its website.

Many the theologically ignorant buffoon will fall for the scam.  But they need to be reminded that God isn’t your lottery ticket.  And if you give, or tithe, with mercenary intentions, just keep your stinking money.

  2. In Brazil a pastor, who has churches all over the country and a few in the USA and has been in jail in the USA (even as a Brazilian citizen) for finance mishandling, lying to the FBI and border authorities, is reported to have instituted a context in his churches to all rigorously regular tithers: every month they run a draw from among this tithers and whoever gets the “luck”, or “blessing” receives a certain significant amount of money. I wonder how long is it going to take for these heretics to do the same here in America! For once, at least in this case, foreigners may be teaching Americans how to further corrupt the Gospel instead of the customary reverse!

    I remember him as the guy who taught on sex…I guess if you appeal to the flesh in your preaching it will reveal itself in other areas too.
