Did you know that there is a verse which prosperity preachers do not mention? Well, yes, more than a verse, there is a text that tells us about the humility that we should have as servants of the Lord and it is good that we study it so that we do not fall into greed and become corrupted.
Something that “false doctrines” or false teachers have in particular is that they use bible verses that have nothing to do with what they want to express, taking them out of context so they to support something really don’t have support of the Scriptures.
Let’s see what 1 Timothy 6:3-10 says:
3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;
4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,
5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.
6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
This is nothing but the truth. Christianity is in trouble in Nigeria in the hand of prosperity preachers. They are big rich at the expense of their followers. They connection with great politicians and great congregation following them. Please, Christians in Nigeria need spiritual help. My name is Hezekiah Olanrewaju (pastor/evangelist. I need additional teaching materials from any part of the world that can help Nigerian Christians.
My Email address (uniam1920@gmail. com), please get me right, I am not asking for money to preach the gospel. I don’t need anybody’s money to preach the gospel, but knowledge, power and anointing. Thank you.
