Have you ever watched one of those TV preachers that talk more about needing you to send them money than talk about God? Worse yet, are those TV preachers that tell you to send them your last $100 or ever $500 and God will drop a bag of money on your head worth much more than what you sent in?
I have not seen a TV preacher yet that didn’t live in a multimillion dollar estate and live the lavish lifestyle of a rock star. But they keep asking for more money.
TV preachers know how to push your buttons and deceive everyone with all that snake oil kind of sell job. They sell their own greatness, not God’s word. Its too bad that all those people who walk around all day saying “I have accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior” don’t seem to understand that you actually have to earn Heaven by doing God’s word with actions. Jesus did not die on the cross in order for our sins to be forgiven so we could just continue sinning but go to Heaven anyway!
The father of all deceit and lies is Satan. And that is all he knows how to do. He lies, so you will believe what he wants you to, so he gets your soul. Deceit is his only weapon. Satan has a lot of helpers in this world and God gave you a brain to recognize them. God also gave you gifts, and He expects you to use them wisely. Listen to God’s word and not Satan’s lies.
