Are You Being Scammed?
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits…” Matthew 7:15-16
Todd Coontz and his RockWealth/Financial Solutions ministry is another false ministry which can be seen on TV, dredging funds from the audience. Coontz uses the seed-faith trickery as his tool to attempt to get people to give one thousand dollar seed offerings into his ministry. It seems clear from watching this TV presentation, that the whole program has one goal, and that is collecting money from the viewers using false testimonials from some of his beguiled participants to do so (see 2 Pet. 2:1-3).
“The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death. The robbery of the wicked shall destroy them; because they refuse to do judgment.” Proverbs 21:6-7
Todd Coontz’s whole ministry is based upon giving in order to get which is not the biblical reason we are to give. It seems apparent that every word and minute of Coontz’s ministry is for the purpose of preying upon and siphoning money from his audience. There is no talk in Coontz’s ministry about loving God in obedient and intimate relationship with Christ as first love – without which no one will go to Heaven (Matt. 7:21; 1 Jn. 2:4). There is no preaching of the full-counsel of God’s Word or even the desire for such. The only part of God’s Word he preaches is that part which he uses to manipulate people to give money to his ministry. Test it for yourself. Obviously Todd cares more about getting money out of those who listen to him than he does about feeding the sheep of God’s pasture which Christ’s bled to save. There is no outreach to the eternal souls who hang in the balance. There is certainly no talk of the biblical truth of God increasing and our decreasing, obedience, denying self, taking up the cross, and following Jesus.
“Beware.” (Matt. 7:15)
“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 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
