Ministry Marketing Scams! Beware!
“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily (insidiously) shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.” 2 Peter 2:1-3
The modern church world is big business but not the “Father’s business” which Jesus says He is “about.” (Luke 2:49)
Year after year people flock to the conferences of these scam clowns and yet still remain in bondage and wounded.
It’s real simple: Conferences alone are a multi million dollar INDU$TRY. This is not even to mention the multi-city tours of celebrity prosperity preachers such as “A Night with Joel Osteen.” They want you dependent upon them! Why do they not want you truly free? – Because then they lose you as a repeat customer! They do not want you truly set free as Jesus desires (John 8:31-32, 36). No they want you as their prey – their return CUSTOMER. Let’s get a clue saints.
Going in Circles – Getting Nowhere
“Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” 2 Timothy 3:7
Only Getting to the Root will Change the Fruit
God always wants to get to the root and yet the scam devils operating in the church industry want their gullible prey as return customers – every year to their costly conferences where they coddle you in your sin and cast or project the victim mentality on you. Many foolishly buy the package and never get delivered and are exploited by the wolves who are “making $merchandise$ of you.” (2 Peter 2:1-3)
