    Mr. Jared,
    It is not at all our business to judge a man of God, whether He has a jet plane or bicycle. You and I are not doing 10% of what they are doing, transforming live s and saving soul for eternity. Man looks at outer appearance but God looks at heart. Don’t judge, its not your job.


    • i disagree. it is our job to call out these greedy, mammon loving bums out. If Jesus said, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven, then how can a grotesquely rich pastor lead people to the kingdom of heaven?

      • Romil says:

        When Jesus said It is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God , He meant about the man’s priority about his wealth. You also can have jet plane and mansion if you don’t allow it to your head. Think about Heaven roads are made up of Gold and plarinum. Does God become so poor that other people of the world who don’t know Him as God , they all can have Jet planes and mansions.Why not His own children ? Be careful when you speak about anointed men or women of God. I again restate don’t judge them its not your job. Thanks

        • Elizabeth J Couture says:

          Romil, thank-you. I am very familiar with some of the people mentioned above. They started with nothing, they dedicated their entire lives to God, they stood on His Word, and God blessed them according to His principles of sowing and reaping. They have a strong faith and a deep love for God. Their “private jets” are strictly for the ministry, impacting millions of people spiritually and benevolently.
          Poverty isn’t a money problem. It is a heart issue. You can love money and have none, or not love it and have much.
          “The devil seeks to steal, kill and destroy. I have come that you might have life and have it to the full (more ABUNDANTLY)”…Jesus

          • Pastor Raymond Nassar says:

            Romil and Elizabeth, o my how far have we wandered from Jesus to get to where someone claiming a regenerated spirit can make such statements that are so ungodly, and have nothing whatsoever to do with Jesus, our savior. I am pastor and founder of a ministry in which I have been blessed with the prosperity of doing five gang extractions of young girls and boys from blood in blood out gangs, meaning I got the hell beat out of me by ten or more men to get the release of these children, five different times. The Lord enables me to be rich with the power of His Spirit to continue to get addicts off of heroin, meth, cocaine, alcohol, and sometimes I have to go into a dumpster for food, because these who are the flock that God has ging to tithe but perhaps their love and their appreciation, their lives in recovery and being the mothers and fathers of their children again. But most Christians in America attack me and pastors don’t want to see me in their church. Because they know the truth that God rewards me with may cost them money. What a shame you seem to heap praises on weak pastors like those jet owners, who want the world to see them and hold up their banners that they are doing somethign for God. What a bucket of —-.

        • There’s a complete difference between raking in millions by selling services/goods in comparison to acquiring obscene luxuries off of widow’s backs using scripture that intended to take care of “ONE ANOTHER’S NEEDS“. But you don’t see that because of the blinders over your eyes. All you can say is, ‘don’t touch God’s anointed… don’t judge…we can’t see their heart’, etc. Your defense is that the jet is for ministry, the mansion is honorable, and the Bugatti is God’s blessing as widow’s and children go without. Sure, you can have a plane and not be defiled in your heart; but the bible clearly states the purpose of our giving and how it is to be allocated. The proportion of distribution is a clear violation of scripture. Regardless of scripture saying it’s wrong, the world even knows it’s wrong. The only ones who don’t see the error are people like you which makes you just as guilty in your compliance.

          • Romil says:

            I think you are still living in a category called doubters , unbelief , religious ,
            self centered mentality.

            I belong to church where my pastor believes in naturally Supernatural.

            In our church we experience Glory cloud, golden dust falling on church members. Demons cast out , a man healed from Cancer. mute speaks, deaf hears , blind eyes opened.

            Becoz Jesus doesn’t belong to one group of so called religious people. Jesus honors faith and faith honors jesus.
            Where there is Jesus there is abundance.

            According to you , widows and orphans goes without a vehicle and gives offering to them. Its all upto them. Jesus is their Savior , provider ,
            they receive more abundantly. Its a principle of sowing and reaping. Sow into good soil.

            Pastors and preachers can’t be their saviour.

          • Wow! You respond like one who has already lost this debate. First, you bring my character into this discussion, then you setup a straw-man and start talking about miracles. Your deflections only validate my point of view. Here’s the definition of a straw man argument if you don’t know

            To address the one point you (kind-of) made on topic – I never said that widow’s wouldn’t be blessed for sacrificing. but what else would someone do who is defeated in a debate besides put words in my mouth so they can continue to deflect.

            I will repeat my previous statement in the other comment – “the bible clearly states the purpose of our giving and how it is to be allocated. The proportion of distribution is a clear violation of scripture.”

          • J Strothman says:

            Amen Brothers . I love the fact that some can still see the truth ,Ladies , why in the world if God is the one bestowing all these riches on these prosperity teachers, while souls are being lost mind you , why did Jesus not even know where he would lay his head at night , and usually didn’t have anything but the clothes he wore , Pleaseeeeee!

          • Abraham says:

            It is not a sin to have materials, ask an receive, whatever you ask for, The bible says whatever you ask in my name: ask an you will receive it/ Malachi 3: speaks of tithe & offering: Test me & see if I will not open the windows of heaven to pour out much blessing that you will not have room enough to receive. God is more than enough, when Jesus said I do not have a place to sleep he meant, in peoples hearts, they have not accepted him, that’s the issue of the heart. The main reason Jesus had desciples was to have the world taught how to do things through his word of life, to be taught how to fish an not be given the fish all the time.

        • Arthur Keeten says:

          Romil i got a scripture for you about these greedy Bastards that you call anointed men and women of God first of all God never called a woman to teach or preach his people that’s the first thing you need to understand man called woman ok. Second read this:
          13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
          14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
          15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

      • Arthur Keeten says:

        Amen Jared i agree some of these unlearned people that talk about judging these money hungry preacher don’t know the true and living God.

      • Russ says:

        Agreed! Please keep up the good work of shining the “light” on these charlatans. They are misleading people into the very pit of Hell!

    • Pastor Raymond Nassar says:

      That is incorrect Romil, we ARE to judge within the body.
      1 Corinthians 5:11-12King James Version (KJV)
      11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.
      12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? It is unfortunate how easy it is to spot “believers” who have not been discipled. It almost means every American.

  2. Denise J says:

    I truly believe we have lost sight of God’s “true” purpose. Matthew 28:19-20: Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
    Where were these guy when Katrina hit? The WTC crash? The Tsunami in Japan? The tornado in Oklahoma? The earthquake in Haiti, Japan or Nepal? Why aren’t they using these “ministry’ jets for ministry? I don’t see them caring food or medical supplies or even bibles anywhere not even to those in need in this country, BUT they have access for their personal use. God is not pleased because we are not the light He intended us to be!

    • Patrice says:

      Very good point…never hear of that. And I’m sure if they did we’d hear about it.

    • Elizabeth J Couture says:

      They were there. The media doesn’t capture every organization that helps out. I know that some gave $ multi-millions to various aids, plus food, supplies, and man-power. That is a big part of their ministries, and that’s what their jets are used for: spreading the Gospel in Word and deed. They are not used for personal use. They belong to the ministries.

    • Pastor Raymond Nassar says:

      Denise, do not take this wrong, but the fact that you have made an erroneous reference to Matthew28:19-20, and the type of error that it is, reveals one of the great problems that causes the divisions and illnesses in the body of Christ that is so evident specially in the American church. Missing from the word in your statement is that Jesus tells us to “make disciples of all the nations”. To disciple people is a very difficult task, it takes time, work, it is frustration, and usually does not bring in material rewards. I know because in the life that God has me living for His purpose, and with the people He has me serve, I do have a couple months of the year that the last week of those months I have to look through dumpsters for food. But it is my joy, for to be obedient and truly faithful and to experience the true changing of lives when people overcome heroin addiction, and other forms of bondage, to be able to hear others say things against me but know that we are getting the true victories. But yes, while seeing the things these so called pastors are doing with that money. Next time I am in a dumpster wondering if something is safe to bring home or not, I will think a thought of forgiveness for those lost arrogant and wrong teaching jet flyers.

    • J Strothman says:

      That’s right sister, If they were doing more , we’d see more , trust me big money preachers like the light … spot light I have seen them on TV dancing in there money on the lords alter … sorry . that reminded me of the filthy den of robbers Jesus ran out of his house . The salvation message is to be preached in Gods house not how you can get rich & live your best life now cuz your going to die someday .. THEN what ? God is Definitely not pleased

  3. Denise J says:

    They are called “private” for a reason. People in their own congregations are struggling on a daily basis. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. (Luke 12:48. Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus says the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?(Eze. 34:2)

  4. Amos R. Pudi says:

    What was Jesus mission on earth? Did Jesus come to gather riches, or he came to save mankind? Jesus heal the sick, make the lean to walk, and make the blind to see. Every man of God that is mention in the Bible, had a special gift that was given by God and they perform their earthly duties. But today all we can see from man of God is to ask the poor to sow seed into their ministries so they can own private jets! How many of them today that are healing the sick, the blind, and the cripple? Jesus said go into the world so that they can know you are my follower.

    • Elizabeth J Couture says:

      Father, forgive those who judge, criticize and condemn others who have dedicated their entire lives to You, proclaiming Your good news. They certainly don’t know their hearts, and they appear to be jealous of their success and wealth.
      If only they would grasp how much You love them, and how much You want to bless them too!
      Forgive them, for they know not what they do, and they will be judged accordingly.

      • …. and forgive those with ignorance who allow the vipers and wolves in sheep’s clothing to continue fleece the sheep. Please turn the tables over on these thieves. Please have mercy on those who are ignorant of the wolves and continue to defend them. For they know not what they do.
        – Amen

        • Sam says:

          My friend, I can see that you are a very bitter man. I am sure you have no clue about the principles of prosperity. You don’t know what to do in order to be prosperous according to the bible. So you go about judging and attacking those who are practicing prosperity principles and seeing the results through God’s bountiful blessings. Suck it up men!!!and start practicing the word of God yourself, so you can see some results. The widows that do sow, do also receive bountifully and increase because it is an established principle for those of us who are born of God. It is God’s way of transferring wealth into the hands of his children. All of us have access to the riches of God and we are suppose to appropriate it by faith. Those with bigger faith do draw more while those with smaller faith do draw little but they all invest it again in the furtherance of the kingdom of God on this earth. You seat and talk because you have not been in their shoes, neither do you run the same race that they run. When you have the chance meditate on these scriptures: Proverbs 11: 24-25; Luke 6: 34-38. If you have been practicing these principles and you have not been multiplying, then there is something wrong with you. Maybe you need to start practicing some love of God because it means your faith has not been active because faith works by love (Galatians 5:6). Sorry but it is true.

          • Not sure why i’m even going to waste my time responding to you, but widows are poor, orphans are hungry, members are seeking financial help and you defend the scum of the earth that is robbing them to feed their own gluttony. If one can be a glutton in the bible for their obesity, then why wouldn’t it be the same for those who hoard money? These vipers are not gluttons of food; they are gluttons of money. And here you are sitting right next to their blobbery, slobbery, fat, sweaty, morbidly-obese figure defending how they stuff their fat pockets with more monetary glutton. I’d even ignore their disgusting, putrid habits; but the problem is that they are stealing from those who have not to feed their addiction. They are no better than a fat man going into an orphanage and robbing the food off of children’s plates and sending them to bed with nothing while he lounges and gobbles up hoards of food into his oversized digestive system.

            If you want to be rich with a real job. Be my guest. If you want to get rich off the sacrifice of widows, then you are the scum of the earth. I’d put you right there with the pedophiles and sex traffickers because you use God’s name and his people to gain your riches instead of principles of work, which was the very first assignment he gave mankind on this earth.

      • Arthur Keeten says:

        Ms Elizabeth J Couture this is what Jesus gave to the Prophet Isaiah to tell the Blind Watchman.

        Isaiah 56:9-12 (KJV)
        9 All ye beasts of the field, come to devour, yea, all ye beasts in the forest.
        10 His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.
        11 Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.
        12 Come ye, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to morrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant.

  5. Delphina Meredith says:

    Jesus had NO WHERE TO LAY HIS HEAD because they were trying to kill Him!! and He had to keep moving from place to place! you guys making comments and don’t even know how to interpret the Bible…so one has NOTHING to do with the other…EVERY MAN and WOWAN God used was BLESSED (RICH) yes RICH!!!! READ YOUR BIBLE!! if it was a sin why would he want them to commit sin buy blessing them with riches!!! THE DEVIL IS THE ONE WHO WANTS YOU BROKE AND BUSTED! HE COMES TO STEAL KILL AND DESTROY!! God comes to give us LIFE and LIFE more abundantly. to give a a HOPE and a future..can’t have hope and a future! If you’re broke and busted there’s no hope and you certainly can’t plan for the future! God said my people will perish for lack of knowledge…you are what He calls blind and deaf! but he also says it’s useless trying to teach a FOOL! So with that , get your bible ask God for understanding through His Holy Spirit, if your not filled with the Holy Spirit pray you are…only then will the TRUTH be revealed!! He wants HIS people who are called by His name to be RICH! why so that we can be a blessing to other’s how broke Christians suppose to help other broke Christians..He said to Take care of the widows and children..can’t do that on foodstamps!! Praying that all nay SAYER’S ARE MADE FOOTSTOOLS!!

    • J Strothman says:

      what future do you think the lord was talking about .. Your old age.. Retirement ? The future he referred to was where we are to store up our treasure ,(HEAVEN )Not here on earth . where moth and rust destroys, HEAVEN where we will live in health and prosperity without poverty , Creflo Dollar said recently to his congregation , I don’t know about y’all , but I aint goin to Heaven broke .How Ignorant is that statement ? what good is his money to GOD ? Really lady .. Ignorant of the Bible .. no I am not , However you might want to check your mouth >> Matthew 5:21-22 “Whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire.” and be careful what you pray for .

  6. Delphina Meredith says:

    OH and the Bible is VERY clear on TITHING 10%…he’s also very clear that if you don’t you are robbing HIM not the church…and people want to get MAD because the preacher’s in force what the word of GOD already says!! people have a problem with it because the think it their money and worried about what’s going to be done with it ect. that is not your CONCERN…your concern is to be obedient to His word. he will expose the church is they are missing using it…trust and belive that and it’s usually small churches that are miss using funds, (Jesus preached to multitudes) so I’m leary of small churches (why isn’t God increasing your congregation?)But not all are called to preach to multitudes so I appreciate the church period big or small. The other reason people have a problem with preachers asking them to tithe is because they think well if I give this to the church the I can’t buy that purse of those shoes or new Nike’s or how they blame it on I have to pay bills…not trusting that God will reward them… GIVE and you shall RECEIVE!! and you reap what you sow (he’s talking about money) you sow sparing you will reap sparingly! He’s He will open the windows of Heaven and pour down blessing you can not contain (just buried In blessing) Where your treasure is so is your heart and He know’s money has a strong hold on a lot of people and that is why He ask us to tithe, so that money isn’t a strong hold..but don’t give to get…give because GOD said SO!

  7. Jeff says:

    It’s a smoke screen of jealosy. John MacArthur can bring down $500k per yr, but you fundys never say anything. Jesus had a treasurer ..crooked, that didn’t seem to be poor. Hank Haanegraffer has fianaicial issue and that is forgotten. Their is abuse, but also a lot of persecution and judgment. No one puts a gun to anyone’s head to give and when John Piper can take off a year …that’s prosperity few in 3rd world can afford. SBC denom took in $200,000,000 for missions yet none of you are crying foul? Which is it only your pharisee group get to be rich ?

    • Russ says:

      The difference is that the SBC leadership is not getting wealthy off of that money. The bulk of which is going to missions and missionaries. Not one person in SBC leadership has their own plane.

  8. Lynne says:

    The point is that people give to these ministries thinking that it’s going to be used for the ministry . When someone owns several homes worth millions , several nice cars, go on several vacations and live lavish lifestyles , someone is paying for it. It’s the givers. My question is why do they have to have all of that luxury ? They say the Lord blessed them or did they bless themselves with a high salery . Now I know the board sets there salery , in some cases , but who elected their board. Why can’t they turn the huge ndown . The fact that they think they are entitled to live like the rich and famous is an indicated where their heart is. Did you ever ask yourself why a 500k house is not good enough for them. That’s a pretty nice home . Or why they can’t drive one 40k car instead of several a80k to 120k cars. We’re not talking about having nice things on Gods money , we’re talking about living in luxury at the expense of others.

  9. shaggg says:

    I can’t give to any ministry when the person who is giving the word lives in million dollar mansions and drive rolls royces and Bentleys and not willing to put personal information about their income of what they make and where it comes from.if Joel Osteen says he doesn’t get a dime from the ministry but from his book sales and speaking then why can’t the rest. what’s to hide oh! Heavenly men and women of god.where is the honesty ???????

    • J Strothman says:

      Amen Sister Lynne , I have been sickend by this stinking thinking for so long , God Bless you !

  10. Lynne says:

    For the people that let these greedy preachers interpret the Bible for you instead of studying the Bible for yourselves and doing word studies , the word rich in the Greek and hebrew was never refuring to money , and the word prosper was always refuring to a journey they was getting ready to take in hopes that their journey went well and didn’t encounter any difficulty . But you don’t like to study the Bible for yourself because your lazy and would rather hand over your money to these preachers instead of getting out and doing ministry yourself .

    • J Strothman says:

      Amen Sister Lynne , I have been sickend by this stinking thinking for so long , God Bless you !

  11. Lynne says:

    I’m not judging anyone , because I was into the prosperity preachers myself until I went through the battle of my life and didn’t have enough of the true word in me to get me over the hump . That’s when I had to get into the word for myself and stop just reading the feel good scriptures that they twisted . Most of you needs to read the Bible from the beginning to the end to see what the gospel is really all about , because you will see the whole plan for man and see that Jesus didn’t die to make little rich Christians running around preaching ,to make more people rich . The word rich in the Bible was never about money and you will see that if you do a word study and read the whole Bible.

    • J Strothman says:

      Amen Sister Lynne , I have been sickend by this stinking thinking for so long , God Bless you !

  12. J Strothman says:

    jeepers sorry about all the multi posts ..yikes

  13. Sandi says:

    Jets, planes etc are tools that give ability to preach the word across the world. Why is it ok for secular businesses to have them yet not pastors, Christians for spreading the gospel. If you truly believe that having luxury items are wrong then you need to think about never buying a nice car, owning nice clothes, having a nice car. I see so much hatred and judgement here and you need to check your hearts and see why you are so indignant and bitter? Certainly, we are to be led by the Spirit as to where we should give as like in anything there are people who misuse money however let’s stop judging the Body of Christ. As someone whom for years was in darkness and thought poverty and illness was honorable to God, I sought truth and the blinds were lifted from my eyes.

  14. Lynne says:

    The difference between me owning a 20k car and tv preachers owning several 50k to 100k cars is that I didn’t ask for money for the gospel and then bless myself with several cars . if you can’t see the difference between owning a nice home and a nice car and even a ministry jet and .living a lavish lifestyle owing several million dollar homes and cars and vacation homes, that they bless themselves with out of the money that was donated for the gospel then it’s because you are coveting that lifestyle too and you know deep down that’s not what Jesus taught his disciples . Check your heart and read your Bible and you will see that Jesus didn’t die on the cross to make us all rich .

  15. Lynne says:

    Also I might add if you have an imagination picture this . The preacher looking at the books and thinking to himself hmmm should I take an 100k yearly salary or should I take 800 k yearly salary ? Hmm I believe I’ll just take the 800k . But oh wait I’ll just appoint hand picked people for my board that I know will give me the 800k and do it legally .

  16. Lynne says:

    Most of these preachers are older now and will leave all of their millions to their kids , that didn’t do anything for the gospel and some of them arn’t even Christians . But they would rather leave their money to their lazy kids then put it back into the gospel that the donations was meant for . ok im done now I got it all out !

  17. Arthur Keeten says:

    Lynn i don’t know you but i do agree with you i have read the old testament of the bible and i love it, most of the people that believe in this prosperity doctrine have not read the bible and most of them go to church on Sunday when the true and living God Jesus only went in the Synagogue on the Sabbath, Paul who most of them say that they follow his teaching was not rich none of the disciple was rich like these preacher of today, see lots of people today are New testament Christians.

  18. Lynne says:

    Arthur , I agree ! Most people who believe in the prosperity gospel is either too lazy to read the Bible for themselves or they covet the same lifestyle as greedy preachers or they might not have the intellect to comprehend what the word really is saying and don’t know how to do word studies in hewbrew and Greek . I’m not sure which it is , but it’s clear they don’t really know what Jesus died for.
