Trumps Spiritual Adviser, Paula White Wants “First Fruits”

According to newsweek.com, Paula White, who is part of Donald Trumps evangelical advisory committee, is asking for the first of peoples money:

Donald Trump’s spiritual adviser has suggested that people send her money in order to transform their lives, or face divine consequences.

Paula White, who heads up the president’s evangelical advisory committee, suggested making a donation to her ministries to honor the religious principle of “first fruit,” which she said is the idea that all firsts belong to God, including the first harvest and, apparently, the first month of your salary.

“Right now I want you to click on that button, and I want you to honor God with his first fruits offering,” she said in a video shared to her website, in which she encourages her followers to donate to her ministries to get blessings from God.

So I wondered what it was she actually said… It seems newsweek were watching the video that was on Paula Whites website:

Short version. Give money to my organisation. Good things will happen. Give more money, you’ll get more freebies from me.

It may be worth pointing out that a similar video was posted at the start of 2016, showing that the above is not a new way of thinking.

While I feel there are a few holes in what she says, can I suggest that if you do feel you should give something, how about giving me your local charity / local church something?

For more from Paula White, here’s a few words about how Donald Trump is under spiritual attack.

A Fresh Worship Idea?

Worship Leaders!

Are you looking for a new idea for Sunday mornings?

Are you looking for a fresh way to guide Gods people in worship?

Are you ready to Rock? for The Rock?*

Tim Hawkins has an idea… (and if you try it, I’d love to see a video of it being tried on an unsuspecting church congregation)

*sorry…

 

What Would A Christian New Years Resolution Look Like?

Christian New Years Resolutions (1)

Well with it being New Years and all, there is the obvious chatter about what New Years Resolutions people are making.

I pondered something about trying to get fitter.

But then I saw some fantastic comments on Twitter that made me realise that getting fit wasn’t spiritual enough.

Therefore I looked,

I listened.

And I figured that the above were the only right New Years Resolutions that a Christian could make*.

Are you making any New Years Resolutions, if so what are you aiming for, and do you have any plans to make it happen?

*I could be being a little flippant with all of this.
