‘Heretic’ Prosperity Preacher Paula White Issues Defense After Selection for Trump Inauguration Criticized

Prosperity preacher Paula White, who was invited by President-elect Donald Trump to deliver the invocation at his inauguration ceremony on Jan. 20, has released a statement in defense of herself as some Christians have expressed concern over Trump’s selection of the female preacher for the event.

“I have been called a heretic, an apostate, an adulterer, a charlatan, and an addict,” she wrote this week. “It has been falsely reported that I once filed for bankruptcy and—my personal favorite—that I deny the Trinity!”

White said that she had been hesitating “to even address such patently false accusations about my personal life and my beliefs so as to not dignify them with a response.” However, since she believed the objections to her appearance pose “a potential distraction to an otherwise celebratory and historic time in our country,” she wanted to present her side of the story.

White, who leads New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, Florida, then outlined that she has “always believed in the Holy Trinity,” and in regard to being a prosperity preacher, she contended that the characterization is inaccurate as she has preached on both the good times and hard times in life.

“I also reject any theology that doesn’t affirm or acknowledge the entirety of Scriptural teaching about God’s presence and blessing in suffering as much as in times of prosperity,” she wrote. “In fact, I have preached and written as much on the lessons we must learn in times of trial in our lives as I have in times of abundance.”

As previously reported, White considers herself a life coach, authoring books such as “The Ten Commandments of Health and Wellness,” “Simple Suggestions for a Sensational Life,” “I Don’t Get Wholeness, That’s the Problem—Making Relationships Work” and “He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not.”

On Thursday, White told CNN’s Erin Burnett that her life isn’t “perfect,” and contended that there is none without issue. She acknowledged that she indeed did obtain a divorce, but said that she had tried to save it through counseling.

“God knew everything I would go through before I ever went through it,” she stated. “Not everything is perfect in my life, but I don’t think everything is perfect in anybody’s life.”

White has been married three times. Her first marriage was to Dean Knight, who she married as a teenager. The two have a son together, named Bradley. In 2007, White divorced her second husband, Randy White, and in 2015, she married Journey rocker Jonathan Cain, who has likewise been married three times.

During the CNN interview, which included discussion on her invitation to the inauguration, White called Trump a “man of God” and praised him for the diversity of spiritual leaders that he had selected for the event.

As previously reported, the ceremony is set to feature Catholic Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Franklin Graham, Jewish rabbi Marvin Hier of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, Samuel Rodriguez of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference and Wayne Jackson of Great Faith Ministries International, as well as White.

As previously reported, in September 2015, White was among a number of spiritual leaders, including televangelists Kenneth Copeland and Jan Crouch, who laid hands on and prayed for Trump at Trump Tower in New York. She specifically made a “faith declaration” that she was securing Trump’s “calling and his mantle.”

“Father, we just secure him right now by the blood of Jesus. We thank you that no weapon formed against him will be able to prosper and any tongue that rises against him will be condemned according to the word of God,” White, who leads New Destiny Christian Center in Florida, prayed as she touched his arm.

“All the days of his life, let him live well,” she continued. “I secure him. I secure his children. I secure his calling and his mantle.”

Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family released a statement last June that included notation that he had heard White led Trump to Christ a number of years ago. Trump had been a guest on her television program “Paula White Today” in 2008, where she discussed finding one’s passion in life.

She is expected to serve as the chair of Trump’s Evangelical Advisory Board during his presidential term.

But some have expressed concern over White, including her leadership of a church despite the biblical instruction in 1 Timothy 2:12, “But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man…” and Christ’s warning in Matthew 19:9, “Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.”

White also raised controversy in 2015 when she posted a photograph of herself and her new husband dressed in Halloween costumes.

“Little Red Riding Hood with the Big Bad Wolf,” she wrote, hashtagging “#love #marriage #life #fun #makingmemories.”

“By dressing up for Satan’s holiday, you are praising him,” one commenter wrote under her post, which generated hundreds of polarized comments. “This is righteous judgment, not pointing a finger. The enemy needs to be exposed openly.”

“I am very disappointed in you Mrs. White. You are a pastor and you are celebrating the devil’s day, why?” another asked. “Please take this photo down and repent. Why celebrate the day of God’s enemy and go to church on Sunday to preach, what wow.”

In a message the two delivered about marriage in August of last year, White’s husband advised, “Ladies, if you don’t know what he likes, figure it out. Get a book. … If he likes to watch porn, watch porn with him.” The clip, which has raised eyebrows, has been posted online as a warning to others.

    I am not necessarily against ‘prosperity preaching’. We all want our children and loved ones to prosper. Is the Lord any different? I think the main issue is seeking to Love and serve Christ whether He seems to be prospering us or allowing us to go through hard times. I don’t follow Paula White though I am familiar with her former ministry with and divorce of Randy White. I certainly understand the concern regarding her being a minister. Divorce, sexual failure of God’s people and the issue of homosexuality are just a few of the issues haunting the church. We desperately need strong men and women of God who are loving and gracious, yet firm in speaking out against our sins/failures and the harm it is doing to the cause of Christ. I am definitely not qualified to cast stones yet that does not lessen the seriousness of the issues the church is facing today.

    • Puppy

      You need to pray for ”Spiritual Discernment”, you’re exactly the type of Christian Satan is looking for, when you say I am not against ‘prosperity preaching?SATAN, REPLIES YES! Say it again! SAY IT AGAIN!!!! it means your faith is WEAK and you can easily be deceived by False Teachers that are Ministers of Satan. it would be WISE not to stand against Jesus Christ. The “Prosperity Gospel” is sheer heresy and promotes a Lavish Lifestyle,, which is Contrary to God’s Word. The Bible never teaches you can have a prosperous life in this world, in face it’s quite the opposite,. if you are a follower of Christ, you will be targeted for persecution by Satan himself. God’s GOAL is to shape,you into Christ-likeness not live a prosperous life. A different Gospel, means,a different Jesus who does not saved (2 Corinthians 11:4)

      One reason why, you should be against the The “Prosperity Gospel” is because it leads,peoples and lost souls to HELL , >MAKE SURE YOU READ >>>>Galatians,1:6-9 <<<,

      I am definitely not qualified to cast stones? Not sure where you got this silly belief from, the WORD of GOD warns us of false preachers and commands us to expose then, not sit idly by and watch them deceive peoples.Paula White is a Prosperity teacher that is LEADING lost souls to hell, souls that reject the truth ( Christ message) Titus 1:11,James 5:19-20, (1 Corinthians 5:11-13) Gives You the RIGHT TO rebuke her,and other false teachers like Kenneth Copeland.

    • Puppy

      We desperately need strong men and women of God? That is true Paula White,however denies that Jesus is GOD’s Only Begotten Son, She teaches Christ Jesus is the firstborn of creation, and we as humans can become ”LITTLE GODS”, She mangles the Biblical teaching of Christ’s Atonement on the Cross for our Sins & Turns the True Gospel into a teaching about Prosperity, Wealth and happiness that is Contrary to GOD’s Word. A different gospel that is different from what Jesus and apostles taught LEADS peoples,,and,LOST SOULS to HELL Galatians,1:6-9.

      A Different Jesus ( IS SATAN) DOES NOT SAVE! 2 Corinthians 11:4

      • Daniel Standeford

        Did you even understand what I wrote? Do you have any idea of what you are saying? You are very quick to judge and condemn with a self righteous attitude. I’ve been there, done that and I repudiate that attitude. I exercised spiritual discernment by not passing a final judgement because I have no association with or knowledge of Paula White’s ministry other than what I mentioned in my post. I have no intention of learning more of her ministry so I can play judge, jury and executioner. I have no interest in her ministry. She is not my servant. She as well as each of us will have to stand in the presence of the Lord one day and give an account of our lives. I have enough of my own struggles to deal with to go meddling in someone elses business unless I am directly faced with it.

        • Royce E. Van Blaricome

          “You are very quick to judge and condemn with a self righteous attitude. I’ve been there, done that and I repudiate that attitude.”

          How is it that you don’t even see the contradiction in those two sentences? Why is it that when someone speaks the truth and judges according to Christ’s clear COMMAND for His followers TO judge that so many self-professing Christians are quick to throw out the “self-righteous” card.

          By what ability do you have to KNOW whether one is self-righteous ESPECIALLY when they have said NOTHING that could remotely be taken as promoting their own righteousness???????????

          And how do you KNOW just how quick Puppy was to make their comments????

          If you go back and look at Puppy’s post, she made several very SPECIFIC claims/accusations. So go research. Find out if they are true or not, If they are, then so much for your “self-righteous” accusation and you owe her an apology for that sin. If they aren’t true, then you owe her a proper response pointing out where she has errored.

          But what you do NOT have the right to do is crawl up on the throne of God and make an accusation of “self-righteousness” and quickness to condemn others because there is NO way for you to know that.

          You say, “I have no intention of learning more of her ministry so I can play judge, jury and executioner. I have no interest in her ministry.” And yet you found the time to come on here, an article about Paula White and make a comment.

          Not only that but I would have to ask why it is that you have no interest in a wolf that is disguising itself as a sheep and causing harm to the very Body by which you claim to belong? What does God admonish us to do with those who are false teachers? Bury our head in the sand and ignore them? Or identify, mark, and avoid them?

          I dunno what your Bible says but I know what mine says. And btw, if you don’t believe Christians are accountable to one another then you really don’t know Christ or His Word at all.

        • Puppy

          So according to you, you believe Jesus is self righteous? Jesus dealt with hypocritical priests, religious rulers and false prophets and he called them out for what they really were.. There is a big difference between loving your neighbor and holding them accountable for their actions. Paula White is a False Teacher. The Bible makes it clear if false teachers peach another gospel, another Jesus and a different spirit than what is recorded in the Word of God, they are cursed Galatians 1:8 . When Jesus returns He will not know them Matthew 7:21-23 and they will burn in the lake of fire.False Teachers are held to a higher standard than other Christians because they are teaching us about the LORD, but they are not teaching us from the Bible.

          They are adding things and taking things away from the scriptures THE (WORD OF GOD) Jesus makes it CLEAR not to do that Revelation 22:19 and Deuteronomy 4:2. We ALL have struggles that’s what Satan does, the closer you walk with Jesus, the more SATAN will attack you that is why you are suppose to put on the armor of GOD. Satan is going to attack you 24/7 hours a day, 7 Days,A WEEK and 365 Days a Year until you die. JESUS still, expects the Church to hold others accountable and we wants you,to,CALL OUT these False Teachers within the Church!

          False Teachers do not come from GOD, they come from SATAN who pretends he is a Christian with his Counterfeit Christianity, Satan is Evil and a Murderer but he disguise himself as righteous, as God’s Children, his servants disguise themselves as righteousness 2 Corinthians 11:15

          they are adding things and taking things away from the scriptures. Jesus makes it CLEAR not to do that Revelation 22:19 and Deuteronomy 4:2…When these hypocritical preachers will all stand before God one day and will have to give an account for their evil actions. for leading countless numbers of people astray..God is a loving God but a jealous God. A wrathful God, a fearful God and does not tolerate or condone sin.

          • Daniel Standeford

            I did not concur with the charge that Paula White is a heretic, not because I think it false, but rather because the word of God instructs us to search out a matter thoroughly before making a judgement; something I have not done nor intend to do because she is not on my spiritual radar. I do not know why you feel the need to correct a perceived error on my part. Those of us who are very familiar with God’s Word run the risk of acting ‘pharisaical’, better and more holy than others. These are very dark time and growing darker. False teachers are out there, I come to know them as such only when they cross my path. Paula White does not.

        • Puppy

          Telling someone they are doing something wrong is not judging, we are to judge others who claim to be Christians. God says we will know them by their fruit they bear. We are not to judge non-Christian and leave that to GOD. Since Paula White claims to be Christian, we are to judge and hold her accountable for taking people’s money and living a high life,not,caring that the people who’s money she can take,barely make,ends meet. if a Christian is causing others to stumble then they are to be rebuked. Paula White twists the scriptures to suit her. God says do not add or subtract from His Word.

    • Royce E. Van Blaricome

      To answer your question you must first define what “prosper” means. When it comes to the “Prosperity Gospel” and preaching, it is a quite different meaning. The riches Christians have waiting for them is not of this world.

      All one has to do to see this is look at the life of Jesus and look at His followers. Name one that was “prosperous” as the prosperity teachers teach. One might also look at Ananias and Sapphira. They tried to hang on to their wealth and it didn’t workout so well for them.

      Apart from that the remainder of your comments are spot on. The church is severely lacking in discernment and reproof these days.

      One parting note, you might benefit from a study on the “casting stones”. Remember, Christ never contradicts Himself. The “casting first stone” is quite different from His command to judge.

      • Daniel Standeford

        I shy away from certain supposed ‘prosperity preachers’. I very much appreciate encouraging and uplifting sermons as long as Christ and His cross and our responsibility to live holy before him take center stage. We speak of prosperity preachers but mention no specific names. I can think of several that I think can be catero
        gized as such, but I am not interested in a witch hunt unless I am confronted with a situation and must make a decision.

        • Royce E. Van Blaricome

          I agree with all of that. I would only add that when you say, “as long as Christ and His cross and our responsibility to live holy before him take center stage”, you need to remember that “holy” means to be “set apart”.

          Set apart from what? The answer to that is key but at least a part of that is being set apart from lies, falsehoods, different Gospel, different Jesus, different God, etc. So setting apart oneself from the false teachers and who are leading people to Hell is part of being “holy”.

  • Joseph Delacasa

    Nothing wrong with prosperity when it comes by hard work, proper use of talent, investments… not by fleecing the gullible!

    As for the other stuff, scriptures have a lot of warnings for all of us,

    “God will repay each person according to what they have done.” Romans 2:6

  • Becky

    Christ, our Lord and Savior, once stated during His ministry that he had nowhere to lay His head (Matt8:20, 2Cor8:9), yet this lot (White, Osteen, Graham, etc) live like kings off of profits from selling God’s word. Christ commanded His disciples to preach to the lost sheep and stated, “Freely you have received; freely give. ‘Do not get any gold or silver or copper to take with you in your belts— no bag for the journey or extra shirt or sandals or a staff, for the worker is worth his keep.'”

    “I have coveted no one’s silver or gold or apparel. Yes, you yourselves know that these hands have provided for my necessities, and for those who were with me. I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” Acts 20:33-35

    • Puppy

      Amen Sister!

  • Judith Walker

    wonder why she didn’t mention her adultery with benny hinn…must have slipped her mind

  • Royce E. Van Blaricome

    I’d have to write a post as long as the article to address all the lies she’s said in just this one article.

    Hasn’t committed Adultery? Better check the Bible on that one.

    Never denied the Trinity. Do a simple Google search and watch the videos yourself.

    She says, “any tongue that rises against him will be condemned according to the word of God,” So she’s condemned my tongue and others like Russell Moore (which Trump did a pretty good job of that too in a tweet and what’s God say about that tweet?!), Albert Mohler, Max Lucado, and others.

    She says Trump is a “man of God” Trump a “man of God” and “praised him for the diversity of spiritual leaders”? In what capacity are these “spiritual leaders”? What man of God praises those who lead people to Hell? I’d say a man who picks a female pastor which Scripture clearly forbids whose husband tells a woman to watch porn! Gimme a break.

    I’ll admit that some of the criticism thrown at White is picking at nits but there’s plenty of serious stuff to show her for what she is and the criticism directed at Trump for choosing her is absolutely warranted.

    • Puppy

      Amen! , Paula White doesn’t care about criticism her GOD is Satan, the only goal she has,is as you already stated lead lost souls and those that reject the truth( the gospel of Christ right to hell in the Lake of Fire. She, Kenneth Copeland.Osteen,T. D. Jakes other wolves in sheep’s clothing are the reason why the church is in such a mess. They have done lots of damage in the Church have led peoples away from Christ.

  • Grace Kim Kwon

    Female ordination has been wrong to start with. God prohibited woman to have authority over man. Female ordination causes sexual immorality in churches. Jesus said, “But I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent…” ( Revelation chapter 2)

      Amen Sister! 😉

      • Jaycee Stillatanding Bradley

        People make comments all the time about the bible and have no clue its meaning. You have to be a spiritual person to discern the bible, as God is a spirit and all who worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. So if you have to worship him (reach him) in spirit and in truth you must do so for all things concerning him. Usurp means to take authority over, as in forcefully. I do not agree with everything Paula white does, but I do not agree with everything I do. Even paul said he found himself doing the thing he hate. However, the first preacher of the gospel was a woman (Mary) who went to tell the men , who had returned to their lives after Jesus died on the cross, that he rose. A woman carried the word of God first (Mary, Jesus mother). Thats about all you can handle now, just seek God for the truth and pray to come out of tradition.

        • Puppy

          Sister, My Friend! Your purpose in life is to please, serve and live for GOD, pray daily and ask him for guidance, we all struggle in this world, that’s what Satan and the World( SIN), does, keep YOUR FOCUS on Christ at all times he wants you to be on FIRE for him Revelation 3:16. it’s GOOD you don’t agree with all your choices deny yourself constantly and ask what does God want to remove in my life?GOD knows what’s in your best interest… Now as for Paula White she is going to be judge much harsher than by GOD compared to other Christians, she’s driving a bus full of people straight off the cliff to HELL in the Lake of Fire!. She preaches a false gospel that is,against Jesus Christ taught has made GOD’s Children wander from the truth. She and False Teachers are Wolves in Sheep’s clothing..

          Remember we have two choices, we can either be a Child of GOD or Child of Satan? Paula White chooses to be a Slave for Satan and she enjoys rebelling against God’s commandments. She has no real fellowship with Jesus as she walks in Darkness 1 John 1:6 and she is enemy of Christ stated in James 4:4. it’s why she called Paul a boring preacher her desires and pleasures are for the world.

        • Puppy

          Some are Counterfeit Christians, they might or might not know it depending on the person? They have a belief in God and don’t want go to Hell but they reject the” Lordship” of Jesus Christ by choosing to continue rebel against His commandments. their faith is lukewarm at best and don’t like to be judged to keep on living a sinful lifestyle. They choose to keep on tolerating sin and will comprise their beliefs on the Word of God TO FIT IN”With the WORLD. They care more about,clubbing, smoking, love of money, obsessed with career, cars,hobbies, bands, actresses,worldly things that will eventually perish. They no longer put up with sound doctrine and instead they suit their own desires, and listen to false teachers who will say things,they want to hear..

          They like to compare themselves to unbelievers thinking I’m going,to heaven and they unbelievers will burn in Hell. They lack compassion for others and aren’t interested in saving the lost Titus 1:16 speaks about other lukewarm Christians that live and enjoy the desires of the,world. They profess that they know God, but in their works they deny him They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good.

          This is why in Revelation 3:16 Jesus says I will spit you out of my mouth. Some Christians choose to be disobedient on their will they want to serve Jesus avold Hell but they want to serve Satan too, keep,on living that sinful lifestyle, fit in with the world and more.

      ” For this reason, God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie’Thessalonians 2:11).God will separate the people from one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats Matthew 25:31.

        That’s true but remember the “strong delusion” comes after the Man of Lawlessness has been revealed. And remember what the “for this reason” is referring to.

        • Puppy

          Yes”Amen! They also choose to blindly follow them and it’s willingly, I never thought someone would be willing to be deceived, but they are. They’ll even cuss you out, threaten and disrespect you, if you call these frauds out. Satan has also blinded the minds of the unbelieving(disobedient”Christians” are unbelievers too) Those that are lukewarm in their faith, Satan loves lukewarm Christians as they are easy to be deceived and manipulate. Paula White also claims she is a better preacher than apostle Paul! and claims one of the greatest preachers ever was boring. This is why peoples need to be careful,who they follow.

          The Devil will use God’s word, he’s very subtle and deceiving, he wants to be God he wants to be God Isaiah 14:12-14…

          • Royce E. Van Blaricome

            Yes, they do so “willingly” and yet at the same time they’re also just doing what comes “naturally”. See Eph. 2:1-4. At the root, or heart, of the matter is their rebellion against God and refusal to surrender to Him.

            You must remember, ever, to not get carried away with over-generalizations and sinful characterizations. Especially when it comes to Believers. “Disobedient Christians” are NOT necessarily Unbelievers. We are all disobedient to some extent but even those who are walking in the Flesh and being habitually disobedient by remaining in some sin can be restored. Paul makes this abundantly clear in many passages. 1st Cor. 5 and Gal. 6:1 are just two that come to mind. And let’s not forgot that God says He WILL chasten/discipline those whom belong to Him. Why does one get spanked? Disobedience.

            That said, I have found one mark of a true Believer is how they react when confronted with and reproved for their sin. Those who lash out as you said, are pretty easily identified as Posers. The true Believer has almost always been immediately broken, contrite, and repented.

          • Puppy

            Yes Friend,We were all Disobedient at one time as Paul stated Ephesians 2:2, and Titus 3:3..However, Jesus spoke very strongly against Lukewarm faith! He loathes them as stated in Revelation 3:16-17 and they Lukewarm Christians the ones that choose to be Disobedient are no different from unbelievers Titus 1:16. They deny,him in their works, are driven by their own motives and desires.KING Jesus is not given the authority to fully reign as Lord over their carnal lives. They don’t know him as they continue indulging in sinful,unholy lifestyle ( 1 John 2:3-4 and 1 Thessalonians 4:7– Follow by they are still walking in darkness (1 John 1:6) They choose to be Christians because they want to avoid going to HELL”,but they choose to live like inhabitants of Hell, whose words,deeds,minds are filled with wickedness, fithiness, evil desires,and carnalities (Revelation 21:8 & 27; Galatians 5:19-21

            They are fine to follow and enjoy the wicked desires of their flesh, when they keep on tolerating sin, living in sinful lifestyle. They think it’s okay to live a worldly life(among others,clubbing,smoking, love of money, obsessed with career, hobbies,bands,actress,cars, and,compromise their beliefs to fit in with the world. Worldly things,that will eventually perish

            This is Why?

          • Royce E. Van Blaricome

            Eph. 2:2 and Titus 3:3 is drawing a distinction between the Believer and Unbeliever. In NO way is Paul saying that a Christian is NEVER disobedient.

            Again, I agree with the overall premise that you make but let me ask you something to perhaps bring my point to the surface. Can you honestly say that you do not sin anymore? That there is NEVER any disobedience in your life? I’m pretty confident you will not say that is so.

            My point is that we must be careful not to all too quickly categorize one as an Unbeliever just because they may be walking in Disobedience presently. Rather we should simply do what God has told us to do in those cases.

            I can tell you’ve crossed the line because of this last post. You list things there that God does NOT call sin and yet you classify them as a “sinful lifestyle”. For example, where does God say that a Christian cannot have a hobby?? I don’t know how you define “clubbing” but suppose a Christian likes to go out to a “club” for a nice supper and perhaps a little dancing afterwards. Are you going to say they are a “FAKE Christian” because of that? Or maybe even just go to have a beer or two with some other Brothers? They’d be “FAKE Christians”? Or how about a Christian who likes to have an occasional cigarette or cigar or pipe or maybe even a pinch between the cheek and gum? “FAKE Christian”?

            Before you answer those questions I would exhort you to be very careful and do NOT place yourself in God’s throne where you condemn that which He does not.

          • Puppy

            Disobedient or Fake Christians are counterfeits their faith is Lukewarm , they have no real fire for Christ, they are not truly sorry for their sins nor do they want to change(repentance) and therefore reject Jesus and become his enemy due to such worldiness and carnalities they keep enjoying… (James 4:4). Jesus said why do you,call me Lord, Lord,and do not do what I say? They don’t want to be Separated from the world they want to FIT IN, they declared that they are citizen of the Kingdom of Heaven but the truth is they live like the Devil 6 times a week. They don’t like holiness and they have no interest in holiness as they are so allergic to the Word of God, they,don’t apply it to their lives

            ===============================================

            1. When it comes to Disobedient or Fake Christians their Christianity is,what can GOD do for me? How can he make my life better?

            2. *They don’t obey the word of God and even try to twist scripture to justify sin. They call obeying the Bible legalism or radical.

            3. They think they are Christians because they do good deeds or go to church. They live like devils 6 days a week and are HOLY on Sundays

            4.*They compromise with the world because it’s the most popular choice.

            5.*They only want to be Christians because they are afraid of hell.

            6.*They have no repentance. They are not truly sorry for their sins nor do they want to change.

            7.*They never or rarely share their faith.

            8.They care more of what others think than the Lord

            9.They don’t have new desires for Christ and never did.

            10. They think they are saved because they compare themselves to others around them like unbelievers

            11. They get offended by the Truth, like unbelievers and LOVE to say things like do not judge so they can keep sinning in peace.

            12. They do not like sound doctrine 2 Timothy 4:3

            13. Jesus Said Rev 3:14-16 – I will spit you out of my mouth,he was talking about all those fake and lukewarm Christians that choose to be Disobedient, they are not different from the unbelievers, they choose to enjoy the desires of the world not follow what the Bible says…

            Again, I hear what you are saying but you must be careful with your over-generalizing. Look at your list above. Have you ever been guilty of any of those while a Christian?

  • CINDY

    I don’t know why your upset Paula. You havent exactly been the greatest Christian role model the past 24 years now have you? Encouraging your congregation to watch PORN? Seriously that one takes the cake.

    Something’s really off here, possibly fake-newsy even.  I mean, if, as Heather Clark has bad-mouthed Paula White with the “Heretic” label – quote/unquote, of course – why not, while the journalist is at it, also smear Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Rabbi Marvin Hier, Bishop Wayne T. Jackson, Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, and Rev. Franklin Graham, with uniquely worded bad-bad-very-bad names as well?  Or, as I’m sure investigative reporter Heather Clark has already cross-checked and double-checked prior to printing, are the rest of these guys all above-board with no descriptions that come close to other remotely (un)related synonyms for “Heretic” – quote/unquote, of course?  Aren’t existing reports out there saying they’re all as controversial & critique-deserving figures as Paula White anyway?  For instance, take your pick, who’s this inauguration-participating guy, one Rabbi Marvin Hier?  So why pick only on her or, for that matter, even scapegoat anybody at all?!  Let me guess: Maybe the PaulaWhiteGate scandalizer-wannabes have only come from the pro-Hillary or anti-Trump voting Evangelical population in good ol’ America, who – God forbid – have been using conservative Christianity for liberal political ends?  Or maybe because, like, whereas White represents “White evangelicals … 81 percent of (whom) voted for Mr. Trump … (but) Only 16 percent … for Mrs. Clinton” (New York Times, November 11, 2016) – so that’s bad, bad, really bad – Rabbi Marvin Hier represents “over 71% of all Jews (who) voted for Clinton” (Haaretz, 11.11.2016) – so that’s very good, indeed?  No wonder the likes of Washington Post, Huffington Post and Salon are just loving this politically exploitable, anti-Trump situation stirring up within the conservative Christian communities, the majority of whom booted out Hillary Clinton. Hoping to divide & conquer them, maybe? – so as to avenge her pathetic electoral defeat & delegitimize PEOTUS.  Between the lines, isn’t this what Heather Clark’s present so-called news-reporting actually is all about?

      Probably better than you just keep your guesses to yourself. The only thing “really off here” is your comments. There was nothing profitable in them at all. I obviously don’t know what your desire was for stating all that or what you hoped to achieve but if it was to discredit Heather Clark then you really need to point out the error(s) in the story. Otherwise all you’ve done is discredit yourself.

    A false teacher who needs her eyes open to the true gospel of the Lord Jesus. Thankfully Franklin Graham will be there to share the gospel in his prayer and perhaps many throughout the world will repent, put their trust in Jesus, and be soundly saved.

    People make comments all the time about the bible and have no clue its meaning. You have to be a spiritual person to discern the bible, as God is a spirit and all who worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. So if you have to worship him (reach him) in spirit and in truth you must do so for all things concerning him. Usurp means to take authority over, as in forcefully. I do not agree with everything Paula white does, but I do not agree with everything I do. Even paul said he found himself doing the thing he hate. However, the first preacher of the gospel was a woman (Mary) who went to tell the men , who had returned to their lives after Jesus died on the cross, that he rose. A woman carried the word of God first (Mary, Jesus mother). Thats about all you can handle now, just seek God for the truth and pray to come out of tradition

  • Chet

    Pastor Jeffers and/or Rev Franklin Graham would have been the best to bring the invocation. And the black preacher who spoke on Trump’s behalf at one of the rally’s, whose name I am not familiar with, would have been the very best to do so. Hands down…

  • C Joseph

    She has COMMITTID to a third marriage which she acknowledges is adultery; then she should at least step down from the high position of preaching, because people lean by example.

  • IzTheBiz

    3 times married! That disqualifies her from teaching/preaching-period!
