Prosperity pimps and lessons not yet learned

Will these people ever learn?

If the recent 14 count federal indictment of Bishop Anthony Jinwright of Charlotte is any indication, the answer is no. Jinwright has denied all the charges and legally he is innocent until proven guilty. But we’ve been down this road so many times before and its almost certain that it will have an unfavorable end for Jinwright. Look here, here, here and here.

The scriptures explicity require that  bishops/pastors not to be greedy after filthy lucre (money, mammon) but it seems like some are intent on bucking God’s word and in the process he allows them to fall to punishment.  There are signs everywhere warning us against trying to appease the money god,  but some in the church continue to blindly ignore those warnings. Its not that pastors are any different than other people, but because they are leaders, the scriptures set a higher threshold of responsibility.

Consequently, such pastors are poor examples of episcopal integrity. Todd Pruitt at 1517 blog explains why:

The sinister “genius” of the prosperity preachers is that they have devised a way not merely to excuse their lust for wealth but to celebrate it. Their multiple mansions, private jets, and lavish expense accounts, they declare, are the very signs of God’s blessing upon them. They have “gotten” it. They have learned to live in “victory!” They have sown their seed and it worked. Now, if the rest of us would just buckle down and sow our seed in their ministries then we may be fortunate enough to reach similar heights of blessing.”

Below, Jinwright, claiming to be a spiritual grandfather threatens not to consecrate men who are not “spiritual sons”. Read more about this false teaching (which helps to rake in more cash) at Im Speaking Truth.

There are plenty more Anthony Jinwrights out there in churchland and just as many more wannabes. Over and over God shows them how this type of behavior will end. But they ignore it believing that it will be different with them. They are anointed, smart and working their plan. Please, if you read this, abandon your lust for money, fame, and influence.  Is your soul (and freedom) really worth driving leased luxury cars, renting luxury homes and lying about the money the people of God gave you?

  1. Djenk, they are working really fast to get everything about him off the net it looks like. I just viewed the video about 30 minutes ago. The videos are incriminating that’s why. They also have blocked access to his church website claiming it is being “updated”. Yeah, right.

    It came on and he sounded like he was ticked off, reacting to something someone said to him. He was saying “dont mess with me”.

    “Im this man’s (the pastor of the church) spiritual grandfather and I dont care how long you have been waiting we are not going to use any oil to consecrate you unless you are connected to this man” (again referring to the pastor.

    He said he was there acting on his spiritual authority.

  2. Sad to say but the pimps game only works on the one’s that don’t stay in tune with God and His word. We are in a society that is full of the latest fads and catch phrases, and this doesn’t exclude the church.

    So how does a pimp run game so long? possibly through the blindness of having a flourishing economy. Well we don’t have to worry about that as a nation any more, so it looks like the country is getting hip.

    I’m just glad to admit that I was saying, how long? when the pimps were quite obvious to me. Now what do they have to offer, I’m almost sure that they will come up with something!

  3. You know, I came from a church that used this language, even going so far as to call people who left the church spiritual bastards. But my question was and still is, if I am born of the Spirit, then how can I be a spiritual bastard? God is my Father. The rebirth is not of the will of man, but of God. If I am connected through Christ to His body, then where does all this talk of being connected to some man come from? No, I am not a lone ranger Christian, but this teaching is pure garbage, a doctrine of demons.

  4. I meant to add that this may as well be Catholicism, but I ‘d go to a Catholic church before I listened to this foolishness again.

  5. WOW! If this man was wasting money by leasing that house and cars for that amount of money a month then he needs to be sat down. What? is he stupid or something? Anybody with half a brain would know NOT to waste money of that kind of thing. This is ridiculous, if you’re going to pay $21,000 a month on a house, then at least let it be a MANSION not a house. That’s a house not a MANSION. He and his wife a IDIOTS.

  6. $21K/month for a house??! Do you know how fast I can pay down my mortgage?!

    Anyway, I agree with you that for them to plunk down this kind of money cannot be very bright.

  7. 1 Peter 4:17-18 (King James Version)

    17For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

    18And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

    Amen this is true. If the people of God are not saved, then what does the mean for the rest of the world? That is a scary thing!

    Matthew 7:22-24 (King James Version)

    22Many 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?

    23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

    24Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

    Their works are in vain and do not glorfy the Father. Judgement is coming down and we are beginning to see the “fruits” of these people come forth.

    Let’s pray that grace will be extended to them so that they can search for the Father while he is still patient.

    It is a terrible thing if the Creator says, “I never knew you” to anyone, but if these people coninute to work iniquity in the Body of Christ; then there is no hope for them.

  8. People, let that soak in. This man was spending 21,000 dollars A MONTH for a house he was RENTING. And he owned another he wasnt even living in! That’s just stunning excess and waste. How can any so called Man of God do that with any justification whatsoever?? Its not even fiscally sound. Jesus!

  9. The “justification” here is that they are spending SOMEBODY ELSE’S money! Of course, if the funds are truly “theirs” (of course, not receiving funds to the degree they are getting pillaging others), then this such a thing would not be happening.

    I agree totally that this is fiscally irresponsible–that kind of rental is more akin for a thriving business, not an unoccupied residence. My goodness!!

  10. You can take the man out of the ghetto. But you can’t take the ghetto out of the man.
    This is simply a good example of
    -Mike Tyson
    – M.C. Hammer
    – Jinwright
    – Baker

    etc, etc…when you don’t EARN your money, you always spend it diffrent. I anyone has children, just wathc how they spend their allowance and your money…

    God bless children and fools.

  11. This blogger has it all wrong.. (disgusting and sad) no mr blogger this country and the federal government is sad.. For years ive been waiting on things to change not just in my community but other communities that just as worse as ours. We the american people are dealing with problems such as swine flu, economy, katrina, gena six, inflation, war,drugs, aids, cancer and our school system.

    GCMW: Joseph, have you ever heard the saying two wrongs dont make a right? That’s the case here. Just because there are other wrongs in society, they cannot be used as justification for a “bishop” lying about the money he makes. And that’s the issue here. Jinwrights greed caused him to lie about the money and now he has to suffer the consequences.

    We have warriors going out and doing what they can within their power to change things and help in these situations.. bishop jinwright is one of them. He is no mc hammer or mike tyson. but one person i can compare him to is joe louis, a man that goes all out for his community his people, but get screwed by the very government that he than helped for so long, this blogger will state everything that he think is wrong but what about the lives he changed inluding mines,

    GCMW: What about it? The government are God’s ministers also so dont act as if they are intrinsically evil because Jinwright broke the law, intentionally. Stop trying to justify sin and crime committed by greedy church pimps like Jinwright.

    What about the children he did feed and the families he did help , and the ghetto he did bring to greater salam my family and our church.. so what he has a bently or maybak or house or funeral homes.. what have the feds done to help our situation, absolutly nothing but raise taxes..

    GCMW: The federal government did not put a gun to Jinwright’s head and force him to lie about the money he received. What about “thou shalt not lie” do you not understand?

    Dont it bother you that our bishop is the only one that was investigated.. I see a well established man that works very hard for what he has. a bishop that changed lives.. All you see is another black man living in the SOUTH living better than most.. The feds had a problem with that and have the power to take what he has.. But the also have the power to fix inflation, cut taxes, furnsish our schools, settle the economy, regulate aids victims and investigate oil companies but the want and why, because they are disgusting and sad to devote this much energy to ruin another brother thats actually doin somthing rather than spending tax dollors on things that dont really mean nothing..

    GCMW: You know what Joseph, you should start studying how to start a prison ministry. Then you can go and visit Bishop Jinwright while he is paying his debt for the crimes should he be convicted. After all, its probably time you paid him back someway for all that he has done for you. Trying to defend him on this blog is not much help at all.

    Bishop jinwright U are in our prayers and I think I can speak for everybody at new beginnings
