The Church of Prosperity

The sins of televangelism.
The likes of John Hagee and Jimmy Swaggart preach that the more you pay to the church, the greater your chance of redemption will be.
This is a total corruption of the Scriptures as the Bible says "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to buy his way into heaven."


This brings to mind another Biblical story that of the "Widow's mite."
A rich man made a great show of giving his donation while at the back of the church a poor widow hid the fact she could only afford a tiny sum, 
The worth of the amount given was more for the poor widow than for the rich man as she had so little to give, and yet gave what she could.

The modern televangelists have forgotten the Scriptures for it is written in the Gospels that Jesus turned the traders out of the Temple when he entered Jerusalem.
You cannot buy redemption - only you can give yourself redemption by being sorry for your sins.
