(I personally saw and heard Creflo Dollar say this on a recent television ad)
Take a closer look at what is being said in the statement above (and in all Word/Faith theology). The idea is that the human is in control and not God. A review of the theology of Word/Faith teachers like Dollar will reveal that in their twisted world of heresy, man is his own “little god” who can order his own world, becoming materially rich by learning to think the right thoughts and saying/confessing the right things. This is not Christian whatsoever, but rather antichrist in that there is no need for Jesus Christ the LORD and Savior due to man being his own “little god” and the ruler and director of his own life and determiner of his own future destiny and “success.” This is purely a new age message that can be heard in any pagan success seminar/book.
Just who is teaching this? Really want to know? Here’s a partial list and includes all leaders who consort with these “evil workers” who are Satan’s “ministers.” (2 Cor. 11:11-15; Phil. 3:2) Here a partial list of those national leaders who comprise the word of faith or Word/Faith movement and its unbiblical teachings: Paula Transparent, Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, Joyce Myers, Jesse Duplantis, Fredrick K.C. Price, Joel Osteen, Marilyn Hickey, Jerry Savelle, etc.
This epidemic of men and women who teach this whole body of false doctrines is an ever-expanding enterprise in this late hour of the foretold famine and great apostasy (Amos. 8:11; 2 Thess. 2:1-3; 1 Tim. 4:1-3; 2 Tim. 3:13; 4:3-4). In general, they convey that man can be the architect of his own destiny and success in this life with little or no mention of the life to come. They teach that by employing certain principles, any person can have whatever they want, whether they are born again or not. Oh and if a person doesn’t possess certain material possessions, it is because they do not have enough faith. In WOF theology, all these things are taught without the emphasis or even mention of intimately knowing Christ more and more and obeying Him no matter what. So, why did Jesus Christ come to the earth? If such is true then Christ has been replaced by man. Man is his own savior with no need of the Messiah which would completely invalidate the claims of Christ and Christianity (Gal. 2:21). Nothing could be further from the truth. Sadly, this will end in eternal tragedy for those who follow these diabolical heresies.
The Son of God foretold us that not a few but “many” who currently (in their earthly life) call Him “Lord, Lord” will on Judgment Day hear horrible words of eternal termination from Him – “And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity (lawlessness).” Let’s review the passage afresh:
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity(lawlessness).” Matthew 7:21-23
A lawless person is simply a person who has not freely chosen to place himself under the authority of the LORD and His holy Word. If Jesus is not LORD, He is not Savior. Faith-filled obedience is the clear fruit of relationship with Him (Matt. 3:7-8; 7:21; Lk. 6:46; Jn. 14:15, 21; 15:1-10; 1 Jn. 2:3-6; 3:10). In verse 21 of this Matthew 7 passage, Christ gave us His word that only those who obey Him know Him in relationship.
If we are in control of our own lives that means Jesus Christ isn’t in control and we are considered lawless, rebellious subjects and under divine wrath. – “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other…” (Matt. 6:24)
The Bible tells us that there are those today who have a semblance or outward appearance of having a saving relationship with the LORD and yet it is only a facade or sham. When speaking of this phenomenon, 2 Timothy 3:5 uses the term “form of godliness.” Behind the thin veneer of their “Christian” “form” or formula is a depraved, uncircumcised heart that is full of extortion, greed, covetousness, selfishness, fornication, adultery, etc. Let’s look in Mark 7 where Jesus speaks to religious leaders:
“This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men…There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man. Mk If any man have ears to hear, let him hear…And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.” Mark 7:6-7, 15-16, 20-23
Beloved, the LORD Jesus Christ simply did not come to the earth to make every one of His followers rich in material goods in this life or ruler/lord of his own life. Wealth brings power – power to rule one’s own life. Perhaps this is why Jesus has frustrated our efforts to become rich in this world – He loves us. Why would we need Him if we could be our own lord, savior, or “little god”? Do you see how this diabolical theology replaces the need for Jesus Christ? If so, it is antichrist and so are those who teach these doctrines.
“But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” 1 Timothy 6:9-10
“He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase…” Ecclesiastes 5:10
It is obvious from listening to them that Creflo Dollar, Joel Osteen, and many leaders today purposely avoid speaking about foundational and prevalent biblical doctrines such as the holiness of God, the return of Jesus, tribulations, sufferings, the necessity of personal holiness, testing, fastings, intimately knowing and communing with God, judgment to come, fiery trials, temptations, repentance, desert seasons, persecution, etc. The Word tells us that any person who preaches “ANY other gospel” than the one on record in Scripture is “accursed.” (Gal. 1:6-9) The refusal of these men to preach Bible doctrines and actually grossly over emphasize minor doctrines identifies them as false (Matt. 23:23). In Jesus’ words, they are straining at gnat and swallowing camels. Paul told Timothy to “Charge them that they teach no other doctrine” and to “preach the word.” (1 Tim. 1:13; 2 Tim. 4:2) Yet, if one does not possess a personal understanding and knowledge of Bible doctrine, he will think these wolves are true Christian leaders. It is not only important to test what is being taught but also what is being left out of a person’s messages – and if we don’t know the Word ourselves, we don’t know what is being left out. Right? Remember that it is essential to know God’s Word for yourself or you will not be able to identify the myriad of hirelings and falsehoods circulating in the world of ministry today. These men are “enemies of the cross of Christ.” (Phil. 3:17-19) They love this present world and this is why they will not speak much of the “world to come” but rather “mind earthly things” like money (Matt. 12:32; Phil. 3:17-19). They call themselves “prosperity preachers” and will speak much about obtaining riches in this fleeting life and virtually nothing of that life to come which Christ and His apostles spoke so much about (Jn. 14:1-6; Phil. 3:20-21; 1 Jn. 4:17; Rev. 1-22). Any person who loves this present world is the enemy of God and the love of the Father is not in him (James 4:4; 1 Jn. 2:15-17). “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh”, so listen closely to what world these leaders speak of most – this one or the eternal one (Matt. 12:34).
Can a person who loves the world be saved?
“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” James 4:4
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” 1 John 2:15-17
Only “false prophets” or “false teachers” would lead their audiences to love this world and the things in this world by enticing them to covet this world’s goods and teaching them to strive for more “success” or “prosperity” as they define it by earthly things. Read 1 Timothy 6, 2 Peter 2, and Philippians 3:17-19 carefully.
The patriarchs of the LORD “confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.” (Heb. 11:13) They did not seek to grow deep roots in this fleeting world. In fact, didn’t the LORD warn us that if any man loves this world and the things in it, he does not possess the love of God? – is not saved (1 Jn. 2:15-17; 3:16-18). The faithful patriarchs of the LORD looked for a city to come and lived in this brief life as to please the LORD Himself through trials, sufferings, temptations, martyrdom, and a real faith that endured to the end of their lives on earth. Read Hebrews 11 and behold what authentic Christianity is all about and compare it to the padded palaces, poshly pampered pansies today who fill pulpits and parade their covetous wares day and night via the media as they lead astray millions. Of the “false prophets” and “false teachers,” God’s Word foretold us: “For when they (deceivers) speak great swelling words of vanity, they ALLURE THROUGH THE LUSTS OF THE FLESH, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption (greedy; covetous): for of whom a man is overcome (by false doctrine; lies), of the same is he brought in bondage.” (2 Pet. 2:18-19) Today many have been overcome by false teachers because they have not crucified the desire to be great or rich in this life and have therefore bought the lie that the LORD has nothing in mind but to save people and make them rich in this life (2 Tim. 4:3; 2 Pet. 2:18). God has therefore sent them a spirit of delusion and turned them over to the lusts of their hearts (Rom. 1:24; 2 Thess. 2:10-12). These have un-purged lusts in their hearts and therefore “heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears” and are turned over to fables like the greedy false prosperity message of the false prophets of our day (2 Tim. 4:3-4; 2 Pet. 2). This is the evil doctrine of present day Balaams like Creflo Dollar and all of the Word/Faith leaders who lead people to live in covetousness instead of contentment (Phil. 4:11; 1 Tim. 6:6-11). They are casting the stumbling block of iniquity in the narrow path to cause many to stumble and offend the Almighty in their sin (Jude 1:11; 2 Pet. 2:15; Rev. 2:14).
There are qualifications for leaders set forth in the Bible. Of leaders, the Bible says:
“Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous.” 1 Timothy 3:3
“Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre…” 1 Peter 5:2
Twice the Word uses the term “filthy lucre” which refers to the getting of dishonest gain through ministry. True under-shepherds are to be financially reward for their serving of Christ and His Bride with God’s Word and yet there are many leaders today who live in excess (1 Cor. 9:1-14; Gal. 6:10; 1 Tim. 5:17-18). There are those who drive Bentleys (from $150k and up), live in enormous, multi-million dollar homes, etc., from money obtained from the love offerings of the people. This is clearly exploitation. If a man (whether in ministry or not) obtains monetary gain via business or something he does personally, that is another situation, yet the Word warns of seeking “filthy lucre” or lavish monetary gain via ministry.
The prophet Isaiah said of these leaders who use the ministry as a place to obtain unjust gain and to entice or “allure” God’s people to love and covet the things of this fleeting world (2 Pet. 2:18). Those leaders who do such called are “greedy dogs.” (Isa. 56:10-12)
God’s Word goes into detail concerning wolf leaders.
“Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an example. (For MANY walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, thatthey are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.” Philippians 3:17-20
Let’s look at what the LORD says in this passage about those whom He says “are the enemies of the cross of Christ”:
Their “end is destruction” – they are going to hell (2 Pet. 2:3).
“whose God is their belly” – they serve their own selfish agenda and carnal desires and not the LORD. If they were truly serving the LORD they would be true to His Word.
“whose glory is in their shame” – these leaders glory in things they should be ashamed of, such as teaching people to relish the things of this fleeting life.
• “who mind earthly things” – they speak of things that pertain to this earthly life and not about eternal things (Col. 3:1-4).
It’s time to compare: In comparison to the modern prosperity preachers, below is a sample of what the Scripture records concerning the patriarchs of the LORD who possessed true saving faith:
“By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; Choosing (it’s a choice) rather to suffer affliction (ouch) with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of Christ GREATER RICHES than the treasures in Egypt (this temporal world): for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward. By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible. Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood…(Moses stayed under…the blood – he kept repenting and receiving cleansing)” Hebrews 11:24-28
God’s goal for you in this life is to make knowing and loving Him the supreme pursuit of your life. He is your reward (Gen. 15:1). The LORD’s desire is not to make every believer financially rich but to be content in knowing Him who is our “exceeding great reward.” (Gen. 15:1) The divine desire is that you might possess the true riches of knowing Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death on the cross that He might raise you up in His resurrection life now and forever (2 Cor. 4:10-11; Phil. 3:7-10).
Material wealth can actually distract us from laying up eternal treasure (Matt. 6:19-21). According to God’s Word, possessing earthly wealth derails most who have it and brings damnation to many (Prov. 1:32; Lk. 12:15; 16:19-31; 1 Tim. 6:9-11; Rev. 3:14-21). We must die to covetousness. “Thou shalt not covet…” (Exod. 20:17) Those who die with earthly riches, having not properly used those resources to serve the LORD by blessing others, will have that banked wealth testify against them on Judgment Day in the Supreme Court of the Universe (Lk. 16:19-31; James 5:1-3). Why would the very Savior who bled for our sins want to endanger our souls? Didn’t He warn us that it were “easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God”? (Matt. 19:24) Didn’t Jesus tell the rich young ruler to give away all his riches so that his soul could be saved? (Matt. 19:16-30)
We must kill the desire in us to be rich in this life. The Bible warns us that those that seek to be rich (greedily covet this world’s goods) will fall.
“But they that will be (covet to be) rich fall into temptation and a snare (trap), and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.” 1 Timothy 6:9-11
Possessing earthly riches in itself is not a sin, but coveting them is. Please read 1 Timothy 6 carefully. This is a chapter the Word/Faith gurus do not want you to know exits. Paul addresses rich believers and exhorts them to give richly for their eternal sake and so by this we are given to understand that that possessing earthly wealth in itself is not a sin (1 Tim. 6:17-19).
The errant goal of the prosperity preachers of today is “another gospel.” (2 Cor. 11:4) It is different than that original Gospel given to the saints by Jesus and His apostles which is to be earnestly contended for (Jude 3-4). These modern day prosperity leaders are placing the “stumbling block of iniquity” in the narrow path that leads to life. Their message is diametrical opposed to the message Christ gave us. These beguilers are drawing away disciples after themselves, luring them with the sins of covetousness, idolatry, and greed which are soul-damning sins (Acts 20:29-32; Eph. 5:5-7; 2 Pet. 2:17-19; Rev. 2:14).
Creflo Dollar Says -
“Some people get mad when I talk about money, They says ‘Whenever I see Dollar he’s talking about Money!’ That’s because you ain’t got none, I ain’t talking to you!” (TBN, Praise-A – Thon April 1, 2001)
Creflo Dollar Says -
“People get mad and say ‘All they want is your money!’ Well, you ain’t got no money anyway” (TBN, Praise-A – Thon April 1, 2001)
Creflo Dollar Says -
“The first miracle Jesus ever did was a miracle of luxury… somebody said the lord will meet your need but I don’t know about your desires. Well they didn’t need wine that day…Jesus showed up with an undeniable miracle of luxury and he turned water into wine. “He leads the people in a repetitive affirmation ‘c’mon shout it out I’ve got increase on my mind,’ ‘shout it out God has increase on his mind, ‘shout it out I’ll have increase,’ Now.”
Dollar’s “Little gods” Theology:
“Now I gotta hit this thing real hard in the very beginning because I ain’t got time to go through all this, but I am going to say to you right now you are gods, little “g”, you are gods because you came from God and you are gods. You are not just human . The only human part about you is this physical body that you live in.” — Creflo Dollar, Made After His Kind, Sept. 15, 22, 2002
Creflo Dollar, in the virtually exact form and spirit of Kenneth Copeland, acts as if his audience should take him at his word and believe what he says based solely on the fact that he said it. Yet, not everyone is so gullible. There are discerning Berean believers who search God’s Word diligently and daily and compare what mere men say against the holy Standard of the written and divinely-inspired oracles (Acts 17:11; 2 Tim. 2:15; 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:3-4, 19-21). As is evidenced by the millions who buy into this type of false theology, there are sadly multitudes who do not know the Word of God. So many are not “valiant for the truth” and do not possess a love for His truth, and are therefore being beguiled (Amos 8:11; Hosea 4:6; Matt. 22:29; 2 Thess. 2:10-12).
I understand that there will be those who read this and are offended. To those I ask: Who do you really serve? Are you willing to be open and honest toward the LORD and what His Word states? Or, will you compromise divine truth in order to continue to worship your “idol shepherd” and be turned over the
“And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12
Were we not repeatedly warned that “MANY false prophets” would “deceive MANY” in the final days? The very nature of deception is that the one who is deceived does not realize that he is deceived. Friend, if you have embraced any belief that is not found soundly rooted in God’s Word, you are deceived. The LORD is calling us to repent of any notion or theology we have believed that doesn’t originate and appear contextually in His Word (Hos. 4:1, 6). Read Matthew 24:3-5, 10-13, 24; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12; 2 Timothy 3:1-7, 16; 4:1-4; 2 Peter 2-3; 1 John 4:1-3; Revelation 2-3.
The following is from Dave Hunt’s ministry (thebereancall.org):
“Church of the Mighty Dollar
With houses of worship in Atlanta, New York City, Australia, Europe, Nigeria, South Africa, and Britain, World Changers Church International is one of the largest and fastest-growing churches in the nation. Led by Pastor Creflo A. Dollar, a flamboyant African-American preacher, WCCI has some 25,000 members and an annual budget of more than $70 million. His message, known as ‘prosperity gospel,’ implores followers to enrich themselves in every way, spiritually and financially, through the teachings of his church. Indeed, Pastor Dollar, whom critics have dubbed ‘Pass The Dollar’ and ‘Cashflow Dollar’ for his ostentatious displays of wealth, is not shy about his success. He owns two Roll-Royces and flies the country in a Gulfstream-3 private jet. Fellow Atlanta ministers, schooled in the humble tradition of Reverend Martin Luther King, have criticized the 43-year-old Dollar for putting money before ministry. WCCI members can tithe online by setting up automatic account withdrawals managed by the church. But Dollar’s message is resonating with many evangelicals, especially poor blacks drawn to the idea of pulling themselves out of poverty because the Bible willed it so. A new church in rented space in New York’s Madison Square Garden has drawn 5,000 members in the last three months. WCCI is adding between 2,000 and 3,000 members per year. It will soon launch a Spanish-language church led by a Mexican priest, targeted at Atlanta’s booming Hispanic immigrant population (‘Business Week Online,’ May 23, 2005). [TBC: ‘For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows’ (1 Timothy 6:10).]”
Creflo Dollar Says –
“Honey, If you aren’t willing to pick up the phone and sow that seed, keep it!” (Creflo Dollar, TBN, Praise-A-Thon, April 1, 2004)
Creflo Dollar Says –
“Somebody might say, ‘Well, I don’t believe it.’ Well, you probably wouldn’t with your broke self.” (Creflo Dollar, TBN, Praise-A-Thon, April 1, 2004)
Besides brandishing an apparently brazenly arrogant attitude, Creflo Dollar continues to publicly propagate the same preposterous fabled heresies of his master – Kenneth Copeland. His whole message puts mere man in control and supposes to posture the Almighty as limited to what man assigns and commissions Him to do. In Dollar’s theology, Jesus is seen as some cosmic bellboy who is at the beckoning call and command of the “believer” who is a “little god” and barks off God’s Word, sending the Almighty running to do whatever has been commanded of Him. This is after all, since God is bound and obligated to do whatever is commanded of Him from His Word. In other words, the Dollar teaches men that mere men can use God’s Word against Him by barking off things for Him to go run and do. Now ask yourself: who’s acting as the god in this scenario?
Creflo Dollar Says -
“Now religion and tradition tell us all of these things. You know? They tell us that your a filthy rag and unworthy. Your not that either.” (Creflo Dollar, “Made After His Kind,” September 15, 2002, Product Number: 3422093)
Who does Creflo Dollar resemble here? hint: his initials are K.C.
Seemingly, another observation is that Dollar is a copycat of Kenneth Copeland. This can be clearly seen in his teachings, mannerisms, and pronunciations, etc. Listen to him as he sounds off his rote version of “glory to God.” See for yourself if it isn’t a direct copycat of Copeland.
Like all Word/Faith deceivers, Creflo promises those who give financially to his ministry that they will “partake of the anointing on this ministry.” This statement deceitfully supposes to put his ministry in an elevated position of superiority over other believers. This is more evidence of the utter arrogance in the false prophets of the Word/Faith movement. Such a teaching (that people partake of the anointing of a ministry they give to) is in stark contrast to what Scripture teaches – that each and every individual believer has the Holy Spirit’s presence (anointing) residing inside them (Jn. 14:16-17; 1 Jn. 2:20, 27; 3:24, etc.). All born again believers partake of the anointed One Himself (Jesus Christ) as they are brought to repentance and faith in His Person and finished work of redemption (Jn. 1:12; 7:37-39; Col. 1:12-14; 1 Jn. 2:20, 27, etc.).
How does this arrogance line up with the Word? Jesus’ original twelve actually walked with Him for over three years and were and are infinitely more authoritative than any leader today. The Son of God told them that He Himself came not to be served but rather to serve and Jesus commanded them to do the same and said that the one who serves is the greatest in His holy eyes (Matt. 18:3-4; 20:20-28; 23:11-12).
Also, what I always wonder when I am watching a beguiler rant and rave with his contrived antics, is if he actually acts that way when he is walking around in his home. Obviously he doesn’t strut like a rooster around his house. What are his wife and kids thinking as they see their husband and father put on that acts on stage? Friend, I hope you know I am not attempting to be cynical but rather to ask simple questions to qualify a true observation as I see it. Jesus wasn’t a fake, nor did He put on an act for His ministry. He was real and authentic and lowly and down to earth.
Creflo Dollar Says –
“God is coming back for a church without spot or blemish so he is not coming back to a church in debt this revival must take place before Jesus can come back. He cannot come back for a broke church, he cannot come back for a sick church, he cannot come back for a church that is in debt that would be against his word. I’m coming back for a glorious church, without spot or wrinkle, so that means there’s going to be some quick transference going on.”
Where does the Bible tell us that being debtless is a prerequisite for Christ to return and for a person to be taken with Him? Nowhere. Without spot or blemish is speaking of being washed from all sin – pure (Eph. 5:25-27).
The term “the poor” appears 142 times in Scripture with never a hint that being poor or in financial debt would prevent one from going to Heaven. Now it should be obvious that being in financial debt is not good and yet there is no hint that it will prevent one from entering Heaven.
“Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?” James 2:5
We see in this verse that there are those who are “rich in faith” and yet at the same time “poor…and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him.”
Like many wolves today, Dollar gets people looking in the wrong direction and for something that’s not coming on an across-the-board basis. In his teachings Dollar gets people thinking that a miracle of money is going to happen, where they come into large sums of money (if they keep giving to his ministry of course). The same people the Word of Faith leaders have been telling this recycled lie to, are still waiting and most of will never see the fulfillment of this false promise which is giving people a false hope that will ultimately leave them distraught.
These are some of the “strange doctrines” that Dollar gets people off on (Eph. 4:14; Heb. 13:9). He could just as easily use his time teaching the contextual truth of the Word of God, laying the foundation with sound, fundamental Bible doctrine (Heb. 6:1-3).
Like all Word/Faith theology, Dollar’s message is man-centered and not Christ-centered. As you can see for yourself as you observe his theology, Christ is demoted and man placed in the place of commanding God to do what he (man) wishes for. This theology is false as those who use it for their own good feign to love God while using Him for their own selfish gain (Phil. 3:17-20).
