HOW PROSPERITY GOSPEL PASTORS TWIST BIBLE TO MAKE MONEY FROM PEOPLE – LUKE 6:38 (PART 1)
Luke 6:38 “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again”
Do you know and understand that this particular scripture (LUKE 6:38) which is very popular and the favorite of the prosperity gospel pastors is NOT talking about money at all! – If you read this LUKE chapter 6 with understanding. This scripture never mentioned money or to mean money by correct interpretation and right application but it is talking about “FORGIVENESS”! But many pastors have twisted it to mean money in order to make money from the unsuspecting, gullible, ignorant, deceived and poor church members.
Critical thinking questions:
(1)Why they twist scriptures or misinterpret Bible for money?
(2) How Nigerian church becomes money-making business centre?
Sold out to the god of mammon – transactional Christianity
The most potent, powerful weapon is the twist of scripture for money!!!
The prosperity gospel pastors have sold out all the unsuspecting church members to the god of mammon unknowingly. Due to their scriptural ignorance, the deceived members of the denominational church are made up of the unsuspecting majority of the congregation and these congregants are enslaved without knowing as they have been brainwashed and manipulated through wrong interpretation and incorrect application of Scriptures.
The prosperity gospel pastors have enslaved the minds of all the church members of the prosperity gospel church. it is an error. This error is unknown to them (the congregation) because they are too spiritually lazy to study scriptures on their own with the help of the Holy Spirit (the best teacher).
The errors of prosperity gospel pastors in the Christian community have put in place the tragedy of not thinking critically by the church members; the congregants have lost their mind and brain to the pastors.
The church members withdraw and suspend their mind and brain when the General Overseers and their senior pastors are talking out of the word of God, that is, talking in contrary to the word of God – misinterpreting and misapplying the scripture – introducing the doctrine of men; paganism, hypnotism, syncretism and subservience.
Their thinking faculty has been deleted by the manipulation, brainwashing and hypnotism/hypnosis of the General overseers and their senior pastors. The god of mammon allowed in the church by the General Overseers has blinded the mind of the church to the truth and right application of the word of God: 2 Corinthians 4:4 KJV “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them……”
The errors of prosperity gospel pastors make people work for particular denominational church empire thinking they are working for God!
In their individual capacities, the church members are laboring in their individual places of work after which the General Overseers and their senior pastors will use threat of curses, fear, subtle force and mind control to scam, swindle and defraud them of their hard earned money!
Congregants give thanks to God during the thanksgiving service which is right scripturally but the errors of prosperity gospel pastors will manipulate this thanksgiving service by laying the foundation of making people give thanks to God first during the thanksgiving service while at the same time the thanksgiving offering (cash or valuable goods) goes to the headquarters (the offices of General Overseer and his executive senior pastors)!!
The wealth of Nigeria’s top mega prosperity pastors comes from the system of extortion of various exploitative activities put in place in the church which twists and manipulates the Scriptures that brainwash congregants.
All the prosperity of the prosperity gospel church to the General Overseers and their senior pastors is at the expense of the masses in the church because the church members have given their rights to the General Overseers and their senior pastors as slave instead of giving their rights to the true practice of the word of God (true, practical Christianity in line with correct interpretation and application of the word of God) – Acts 6:4 KJV “But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.”
In slave camp, a slave has no rights – the rights of the slave are given to his master as it is applicable in prosperity gospel church. The prosperity gospel pastors take away the rights of the church members in order to enslave them without knowing.
The errors of prosperity gospel pastors delete the thinking faculty of the church members and paralyze their brains for critical thinking. If their mind and brain have not been deleted and paralyzed, their mind and brain would have exposed them to the doctrinal errors (doctrine of men), brainwashing, manipulation, misinterpretation and misapplication of the Scripture, paganism, syncretism, hypnotism / hypnosis, subservience, etc., going on in the church for them to see and understand.
The doctrinal errors associated with the silent, secret and unnoticed love of money being taught and practiced are possible because the prosperity gospel churches have been sold out to the god of mammon.
Products and services of the god of mammon in prosperity gospel church make the pastors to twist the scriptures for money!!!
These are the products and services of the god of mammon in Nigerian church: established hidden system of slave camp Christianity, hero worship, subservience, mind control system (conditioning and programming of the mind of the church members for the benefits of the General Overseers and senior pastors), syncretism, paganism, idolatry, hypocrisy, covetousness by the love of money, materialism, brainwashing, manipulation and misapplication of scriptures, deception, worldliness, wrong use of tithes and offerings, oppression of the poor church members (unlike in the early church where the poor were taken care of to the level there was no one lacking in the church), over emphasized miracles, signs and wonders over developing a personal walk and intimate relationship with God first, the false teaching of one day of favor is better than one thousand days of labor instead of hard work and dignity of labor with diligence, culture of men over true Christian culture, transactional Christianity instead of transformational Christianity, etc. Transactional Christianity is an outstanding product that is excellent and flourishing in prosperity gospel church in Nigeria through the twisting of the scriptures by the pastors.
Prosperity gospel is one the benefits of the kingdom of God. The prosperity gospel has power. The instrumentality of prosperity gospel makes Christianity attractive. The abuse of power of instrumentality of prosperity gospel leads to transactional Christianity instead of transformational Christianity that helps a personal walk and intimate relationship with God.
Doctrine of money answers everything is a scam in Christianity!
One of the grave errors of the prosperity gospel pastors / preachers is this: they will tell you the reason why you should not give to the poor. They will tell you that if you give to the poor, you will never rise to become rich and wealthy. They will tell you that instead of giving to the poor, you should give to the pastors. They will tell you that even, if you want to give to the poor, you should first give to the pastors. They will tell you that giving to the poor will make you poorer while giving to the pastors will make you richer! They tell you to sow into the anointing of the pastor in order to rise to status of the rich and the wealthy! This is absolute nonsense in contrary to the word of God: Hebrews 7:7 KJV “And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better.”
Let me ask you this question: who among the top 10 wealthiest / billionaires in the world sow money seed / seed faith into the anointing of pastors before they become the richest and wealthiest in the world?
This erroneous teaching by twisting the scriptures that is coming from the pulpits of the prosperity gospel pastors is a scam, fraud, unscriptural and unchristian.
They manipulate and misinterpret the Scriptures for money to have financial gain. They brainwash their denominational church members; they cajole, scam, swindle, and defraud them of their hard earned money. They twist the scriptures to support their pulpit banditry and corruption.
Nigerian prosperity gospel pastors have made Nigeria a religion economy where the country has more religious centers than factories. That is, the prosperity gospel preachers have substituted work for faith; instead of hard work and dignity of labour, faith for miracle money (the Holy Spirit or angels give money without people working for it!) is the order of the day – and this has destroyed the economy of the nation.
Seed faith offerings that will bring breakthroughs instead of hard work and dignity of labour is the message of the prosperity gospel pastors for their own financial gain or benefits by twisting the scriptures.

My write-up is all about making Heaven and getting the true children of God out of the hands of the prosperity gospel pastors who are into errors of false teaching and unscriptural practices by twisting the scriptures in order to make merchandise of the poor church members. My write-up is to make spiritually dead come back to life and spiritually deaf to hear and spiritually blind to see. It is to repair the damages done to the practice of true Christianity by the prosperity gospel pastors /preachers.
