Title: Conservative Christians pan 'prosperity gospel' Trump inaugural preacher

Prominent conservative Christians are up in arms about President-elect Trump's choice of a controversial televangelist to deliver one of the prayers at his inauguration on Jan. 20.

Florida's Paula White, age 50, will join Franklin Graham, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Rabbi Marvin Hier of the Simon Wiesenthal Center and other religious leaders in participating in the Trump inaugural festivities. Unlike the others, White is a proponent of the "prosperity gospel" — the belief that God blesses the faithful with health and wealth — who has come under attack for her theology, marital history and finances.

"Paula White is a trinity denying heretic," wrote conservative Christian commentator Erick Erickson. "She rejects the Council of Nicaea's creed that every Christian accepts. To reject the orthodoxy of the Nicene Creed is to reject Christianity itself."

"Paula White is a charlatan and recognized as a heretic by every orthodox Christian, of whatever tribe," echoed Russell Moore of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission.

"Paula White has a long history of bankruptcies, failed business ventures, and unsuccessful marriages, which makes her the perfect choice to deliver a prayer on behalf a president-elect who has proudly proclaimed that he's never felt the need to ask forgiveness from God for anything," complained Paula Bolyard in a post titled "Twice Divorced Paula White Praying at Trump Inaugural Exactly What We Expected."

White delivered the benediction on the first day of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July, where Trump was nominated for president.

The loudest voices against White are anti-Trump evangelicals who have been warning their coreligionists against the president-elect since the campaign. But many Christians regard the prosperity gospel as incompatible with Scripture and view pastors who promote it as likely to take financial advantage of their flocks.

White has drawn attention for her own lavish lifestyle, as the owner of expensive homes (including an apartment at Trump Towers) and cars. The Tampa Tribune reported that her broadcast business earned between $50,000 to $80,000 a week while a decade ago she and her then-husband were taking compensating ranging from $600,000 to $1.5 million a year.

Erickson argues that her theological problems go beyond the prosperity gospel to rejecting core Christian doctrines agreed upon across denominations, as evidenced by comments she made to worshippers that were captured on video.

"The President of the United States putting a heretic on stage who claims to believe in Jesus, but does not really believe in Jesus, risks leading others astray," he wrote. "Christians have an obligation to speak in defense of their faith. Trump letting this heretic pray in Jesus's name should offend every Bible believing Christian."

"I'd rather a Hindu pray on Inauguration Day and not risk the souls of men, than one whose heresy lures in souls with promises of comfort only to damn them in eternity," Erickson concluded. "At least no one would mistake a Hindu, a Buddhist, or an atheist with being a representative of Christ's kingdom."

In the "What We Believe" section of the website for White's ministry, she explicitly affirms a belief in the trinity.

While much of the organized Christian right supported Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio in the Republican primaries, Trump made peace with these organizations by promising to appoint conservative judges and generally hew to a socially conservative agenda.

Trump won 80 percent of white born-again or evangelical Christians, according to the exit polls. That was better than not only Mitt Romney, a Mormon, in 2012, but also evangelical George W. Bush in 2004.

But the president-elect had natural appeal to prosperity gospel preachers, as his own self-help advice is a more secularized version of that message. Trump's parents attended a church pastored by Norman Vincent Peale, the Methodist turned Reformed author of "The Power of Positive Thinking."

Peale's teachings were a precursor of sorts to the prosperity gospel. The preacher, who died in 1993, performed Trump's wedding to his first wife Ivana. Peale's successor presided over Trump's wedding to his second wife Marla Maples.

The prosperity gospel is also an opening to broaden Trump's appeal across racial lines, as the tradition has made inroads in the black church. White herself has led a megachurch with a predominantly black congregation.

White chairs Trump's evangelical advisory board. She has organized meetings between Trump and other pastors. White is one of six clergy scheduled to pray, speak or read at Trump's inaugural, including some who have disagreed with the president-elect on immigration.

White's second husband was the evangelist Randy White, with whom she partnered in ministry. Her current husband is Jonathan Cain, a member of the rock band Journey.

t many Christians regard the prosperity gospel as incompatible with Scripture

Luke 6:36-42: Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful. “Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven; give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.” He also told them a parable: “Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit? A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,’ when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother’s eye.

I don't think women are supposed to be preachers. But there are promises in the Bible that deal with prosperity.

I don't either. "Give not thy soul to woman lest she trample upon thy strength" is a a good principle to live by.

“You think I’m overreacting, a sore loser, or some such. And you know damn well that if Jeremiah Wright had said a prayer at Barack Obama’s inauguration you’d be publicly outraged and calling for Obama to reconsider the invitation. Jeremiah Wright’s black liberation theology and Paula White’s prosperity gospel are two sides of the same heretical coin.

“By being outraged about one and not the other, and admit it that you would be and you were upset by Barack Obama attending Wright’s church, you have reduced Jesus Christ to partisan team sport.”

"Dominion" @: .30

Dominionists, like Rafael and Ted Cruz. They seem to be on the verge of embracing Mohammad as a co-equal "son of God".

I don't know where you get that weird idea. To be a dominionist means you believe Christians and Christian nations are destined to have dominion over all the earth (except Israel which has been given to the jews) just as prophesied over 3000 years ago in Genesis. It is fast coming to pass. I predict that, very soon, Muslims (and atheists, et al) wont have dominion over didily squat.

Eventually there will be a one-world religion as prophesied in the Bible.

The religions will all unite under the banner of the anti-christ.

You are so full of it. There is only one antichrist and he was Hitler. His Third Reich (of Rome) is the third six of the 666 trilogy. The only religion that will rule all the world is Christianity. And I predict it will happen very, very soon.

You got to be kidding me! When did Hitler rule the entire world?

When did the entire world take the Mark of the Beast?

It was his plan to rule the whole world, and to not let anyone buy or sell except for his soldiers and officials wearing the swastika on their headgear, and civilians carrying a permit in their hand stamped with the swastika. For the sake of the elect, those days were cut short.

You are full of shit. You are a deceiver.

11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

The two-horned Lamb, like many things in the Revelation, can be interpreted two ways. Both are equally correct. In the Revelation, a lamb always represents Jesus and/or His Church. The two horns of the Lamb either represent the two Churches that supported Hitler (the Lutheran and Roman Catholic Churches) or the two Popes who supported Hitler (Popes Pius XI and XII). They provided Hitler with his power (i.e, the troops who killed Hitler's enemies with miraculous planes and bombs, and with miraculous subs, tanks, etc. And they caused the world to worship Hitler, and the image he worshipped, that is, the Aryan race.

The Third Reich, or third reign of pagan Rome the 6th head of Satan, was one man, Hitler, who arose after the first two heads of Rome were killed off.

You and all futurists are the deceivers. Jesus said over and over and over again that He would return quickly, and with speed. Yet you guys somehow construe that to mean 2000 years later. That's calling Jesus a liar. I'm going with the history books, which say Jesus returned with a kingdom in 312 AD. The 5 horsemen can be thought of as 5 dispensations of the second coming. We are the 4th horseman to rule the earth for Jesus and kill His enemies.

Hitler never ruled over all nations tongues kindreds. There was never a worldwide mark of the beast system.

I never said he did any of that. I said he planned to. If you don't believe that, read Hitler's Mein Kampf. And Jesus plainly said those days would be cut short for the sake of the elect. It was the US and our allies who cut those days short beginning with D-Day (the 6th trumpet prophecy) when we unleashed 200 million horses against Hitler (i.e, horses under the hood). The riders of the horses had breastplates of red, white and blue as prophesied. (Sulfur is white when hot).

Well, the Revelation is not translated very good in most English Bibles. Jesus is saying not everything the antichrist set out to do will happen. The Revelation says the great tribulation (aka WW II) will be cut short after 3 1/2 years. That is precisely how long WW II lasted (when calculated on the sacred Hebrew calendar used in all Bible prophesies). That is, it lasted precisely 1260 days (from Dec. 7, 1941 when the US entered the war until the death of Hitler on April 30, 1945. (A war is not a world war until the US enters it).

When it comes to the Revelation, it is the English translators who are the liars. To see what will happen to them, read Rev 21:18-19. If you want to read the correct translation of the Revelation, you have to buy my book. And hopefully it will someday be translated correctly into all tongues. Hasn't happened yet though.
