When John the Baptist came preaching in Judea, he did not have even a shirt on his back. The Bible says:
“And the same John had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.” (Mat. 3:4)
The man was that poor materially. Moreover, John went on and preached, saying:
“He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise.” (Lk. 3:11)
When Jesus lived here on earth, the Bible says of Him:
“The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.” (Mat. 8:20)
And, pray, what have we here today? We have preachers who own private jets and million-dollar homes and cars and who claim to preach the same gospel that John and Jesus preached.
Aw, c’mon! C’mon!!
[Prosperity preachers are not much different from this fellow. Scheming and conniving to get their paws on their material “dues”]
Yes, somehow religion today has one purpose – to fuel the flesh! As Paul put it, if the flesh has been put to death, how can it still be served?
