Pot to Kettle…Black!

Pastors often warn their congregations to beware of televangelists because, “Televangelists will take verses out of context in order to prove their prosperity gospel, or their seed-faith doctrine.”

It is not just televangelists that handle the word of God deceitfully. It is also pastors in many local churches. For instance,…

God said His required tithe is to be agricultural, (Leviticus 27:30,32) but pastors say God requires monetary tithes.

God said the congregation is not to tithe to the House of God. (Numbers 18:21-22; Nehemiah 10:29,37-38) But pastors say the congregation is required by God to tithe to the House of God.

God said that a biological descendant of Aaron the Priest must oversee the tithe when it is given. (Nehemiah 10:29,37-38) Pastors say to give the tithe even though a bloodline descendant of Aaron the Priest is not present.

God’s word says that Malachi is addressing the Priests of Israel. (Malachi 1:6-7;2:1) Pastors say Malachi is addressing the congregation.

God said His tithe is to be observed only after entering the land of Canaan to live there. (Deuteronomy 12:10-11) Pastors say tithes are to be observed all over the world.

Many pastors that point an accusing finger at televangelists for using Scripture wrongfully have three of their own fingers pointing back at them.

Pot to Kettle…”Black!”

2 Corinthians 4:1-2 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
