Yes it is bad. But it sells a lot of CD’s and books so people keep cranking out bad messages “in the name of Jesus”.

If you want Bible and sound Theology, don’t look towards Charismatics/Pentecostalism.

I still remember Oral Roberts comparing God to a soda machine...you put a quarter in and you get a soda out....you tithe to God (through Oral’s church of course) and you will get money back....It made me so mad.

Too often it is this type of ‘preaching’ that ends up blinding people to the real joy that comes from living a life that is full of grace and blessing—— and that means that my insides ( my psyche) is in the right place regardless of what the physicality of my life is. I can be poor and yet rich. I can be healthy and yet dying of a terminal disease. I can be happy in the face of all adversity.
