Prosperity PimpsNovember 15, 2007
Here is a sermon by Donnie Swaggart, Jimmy Swaggart’s son, revealing the sin of the prosperity, health, and wealth gospel. He refers to prosperity gospel preachers as “prosperity pimps”, and rightfully does so. This is one of the most amazing things I’ve seen in a while.
Here are some quotes he said that stuck out to me:
“[Upset] when a preacher tells you that if you give so much that God has to give you so much in return… that’s a lie.”
“[Upset] when a preacher stands up and says the blessing of Abraham is wealth… that is a lie. The blessing of Abraham is justification by faith. The bible says “Abraham believed God and God accounted it unto him as righteousness”.”
“[In tears] we are selling Jesus… we are selling the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords… we are selling Jesus Christ, the one who bore the stripes upon His back, who took our punishment that we deserve… we are selling Him at bargain basement prices.”
“These prosperity pimps make prosperity a means of lively-hood. Have you ever noticed the only ones driving the Rolls-Royce is them and not you?”
