Pastors in Ferraris

Pastors in Ferraris

What happens when you marry the prosperity gospel with reality television? If you answered TBN, pat yourself on the back for being clever. But that 40 year-old horse is temporarily out of focus while people are anticipating Oxygen’s new series: Preachers of L.A..

If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the trailer that has been making buzz this summer.

In the video above, Bishop Clarence McClendon says:

“The Bible says I wish above all things that you would prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers. I believe that.”

Likewise, Bishop Ron Gibson declares:

“P. Diddy, Jay-Z — they’re not the only ones who should be driving Ferraris and living in large houses.”

An article in Christian Today cited the following last month:

McClendon, whose weekly international broadcast reaches some 250 million homes, believes “there is no other kind of Gospel” except the prosperity gospel, according to a release from the Oxygen network.

In contrast, here is a short audio blurb from John MacArthur worth checking out. There might be two sides to every coin, but there is only one true gospel of Jesus Christ. And the prosperity gospel isn’t it.

    Hi bro! Defenitely agree with you that the prosperity gospel is heresy, I’ve written about it myself here: However, I also want to note that MacArthur also preaches a lot of weird stuff, with his cessationism being especially unbiblical. Jack Deere has done a good refutal of this in his book Surprised by the Power of the Spirit. I understand that you don’t endorse the whole teaching of a pastor you refer to, but I still wanted to point this out.

    God bless you!
