When the dollar rules the pulpit, the devil rules the pew.
And so it is. The worst of this parable from modern religion worldwide is that the preacher will leave off preaching about some topics so that no one is offended. It may seem to you that the begging and coersive tricks by preachers preaching on giving is the most agregious offense. Wrong! The most evil thing is all those sins the preacher will not preach against.
I watched a video of Piers Morgan interviewing Joel Osteen, and Piers, who seems to be a sodomite based on his obsession to slap any preacher he interviews about sodomy. Peres demanded that Joel Osteen tell him if he taught that sodomy was a sin.
Osteen waffled around, flashed his gorgeous teeth, and finally and carefully told Morgan that the Bible calls sodomy a sin. Then, Joel the waffle man, grinned like a drunk car salesman and said, "But, we are all bout love at our church."
HERE IS THE INTERVIEW
So, God hates sodomy, but Joel will not preach against it in his pulpit. Clearly, this is because his mega church in Houston, Texas is packed with a bunch of sodomites, and he wants their cash.
But, I also know of a small country church in Michigan where a preacher came along and was asked if he would pastor that church. He agreed only if the church deeded over the title of the church to him personally. After he was installed and owned the church property, he then started hammering the small congregation for buy him a new Lincoln Navigator, which they did, and the board member signed for the loan. Wow! What abject stupidity.
Finally the creep claimed the church was not doing God's will, and he sold the church, pocketed the cash, and fled to another state and did it again.
So, the devil's dollar lust is not only found in big churches like Jack Hyles' church and in the Vatican-- the devils's dollar rules supreme in churches of all brands and sizes.
Thus, at the suggestion of a Black brother friend of mine, I bring you the Dixie Hummingbirds and,
WHEN THE DOLLAR RULES THE PULPIT,
THE DEVIL RULES THE PEW
Did you catch that bit about paying your dues so that you earn the right to strut down the aisle. This is a guarded reference to the Freemasonic Lodge where about $2000 a pop will get you up another degree. That is how Freemasons, including the Prince Hall African American Freemasons, get up the 33 degrees.
