Money Equals Spiritual Worth

  According to this ignoramus money equals ones spiritual worth. If true, most Christians (including myself) aren’t spiritually worth $.02 

Televangelist James Robison hosted Daniel Lapin of Toward Tradition on today’s program Life Today… Abramoff Ally Daniel Lapin Says Money Equals Spiritual Worth

  1. Really, what struck me here was not the deceived Daniel Lapin’s gospel of Satan..equating wealth with spiritual maturity…[ Jesus must have been a backslider then, with no place to lay his head….]..but how far the once evangelical James Robison has fallen.

    This is the same James Robison who endorsed Glen Beck as a brother…and called him one on TV. This, though, has to be a higher level of goofiness….RAW DECEPTION….in your face greed is faith dung.

    Robison used to win souls with a real and clear blood-washed Gospel. Oh! How the mighty have fallen!

    John 3
    18.He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

    19. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

    20. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.”

    Very sad to see this.

    • Robison used to win souls with a real and clear blood-washed Gospel. Oh! How the mighty have fallen!

      Tom, the same thought here. 😦

      Do you remember when James Robison was considered the most on-fire Baptist preacher around? Boy i do…it was back in the early 1980’s.

      I don’t believe he even preaches at all now…

    • I’m sorry, but I vaguely remember back when James Robison had his “spiritual epiphany” and left the SBC. I saw a real lack of genuine repentance and a weird fixation on demons on his part at the time and have never taken him seriously since. He was also dealing with SBC churches in ways that I considered to be lacking in integrity and even seditious. There is nothing wrong with having a supernatural experience in the spirit and sharing it, but there is something very wrong when it is used in a divisive and less than sincere way to build a personal ministry at the expense of an established ministry by taking advantage of the trust granted by that established ministry which was exactly what Robison was doing. So the bad fruit showing up now is just what one would expect from the roots put down years ago.

  2. Not surprising. Religious people have always equated money with spirituality which is why the disciples asked Jesus “who then can be saved?” after he told them how difficult it would be for the rich to enter the kingdom of God (Mat 19:16-26)

    Our culture today is no different than theirs. When we see someone who has prospered we have a tendency to see that as the favor of God even if we know the person is not particularly Godly

    • Sadly you’re right, it shouldn’t be surprising. Somehow though, i was hoping Christians had finally put that lie to rest.

  3. Actually, there are two extremes going on among “religious” people. One, of course is this one, the belief that wealth equates to right standing with God. The fact that almost all of the super wealthy in the world today are openly self proclaimed atheists doesn’t seem to get through to these people. But the other is equally in error. That is the assumption that one has to be sworn to poverty in order to find spiritual life. The reality is that there are plenty of extremely wealthy people out there who are very genuine in their Christian faith and who count their wealth as a gift from God and strive to use it to the best of their ability in service to Christ and to the gospel. Thus, the reality is that it takes a miracle for ANY OF US to enter the kingdom of God and great wealth neither guarantees nor precludes salvation. Love of money, of course, is a whole different issue.

  4. I don’t think he is equating prosperity with spirituality. Or am I missing something?
