'Prosperity' Preacher Moves to Sell Jet
BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. (AP) ‚ÄĒ Dwindling donations to the Living Word Christian Center in this Twin Cities suburb have prompted its high-profile pastor, Mac Hammond, to put his private business jet on the market.

Church spokesman the Rev. Brian Sullivan says Living Word has also cut its hourlong Sunday morning television broadcast to 30 minutes to save money.

Sullivan said the church's problems could be a combination of the recession and the recent bad publicity about churches preaching prosperity gospel, which holds that God wants his followers to flourish financially. ...

Teh WORSHIP CIRCUS will go on because right behind the WoF -Word of Faith & other charismatic type churches which twist scripture is more offsrping from Gnostic churches, who say that we are all divine & we have not yet had the secret teaching that will show we can comman the material wrodl around us. Also emerging is the emergent church, a church that is rapidly reaching out to young people but have another liberal translation of the Scriptures. Brian McLaren & others take the gospel & share it in a postmodern milieu.
NO, Satan will not let the Gospel Circus stop because the whole purpose is to "BE spiritual" & take one's eyes off of CHRIST & look upon one's self.

Get Rich with God

Pastor Mac Hammond's suburban megachurch preaches heavenly financial rewards in the here and now ‚ÄĒ if you've got the faith to give till it hurts

by Beth Hawkins
City Pages
December 13, 2006

The following is an excerpt from Beth Hawkins article:

“Rather, the message that packs them in is the gospel of prosperity, the perfect marriage of almighty God and the almighty dollar. Also known as the health and wealth movement, the name-it-and-claim-it doctrine, or "Positive Confession," the creed has historically appealed mostly to poor people and minorities in rural backwaters and inner-city slums. But thanks to the efforts of a new generation of "pastorpreneurs" like Hammond, who preach in upscale suburban megachurches, the message has found a new, more prosperous audience.

This time around, the good word has been translated into the comfortable, familiar language of self-help and business-inspiration literature. And it's delivered without the things people find off-putting about church: the pews, the dress codes, the interminable sermons, and above all that gloom and doom about sin. God, it seems, wants these folks to go ahead and enjoy their riches in the here and now.‚ÄĚ

Oh, I really feel for him,
Acts 8:18:
Now when Simon saw that through the laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Spirit was given, he offered them money,

Matthew Henry wrote:
...Simon Magus was ambitious to have the honour of an apostle, but cared not at all to have the spirit and disposition of a Christian. He was more desirous to gain honour to himself, than to do good to others. Peter shows him his crime. He esteemed the wealth of this world, as if it would answer for things relating to the other life, and would purchase the pardon of sin, the gift of the Holy Ghost, and eternal life. This was such a condemning error as could by no means consist with a state of grace. Our hearts are what they are in the sight of God, who cannot be deceived. And if they are not right in his sight, our religion is vain, and will stand us in no stead. A proud and covetous heart cannot be right with God. It is possible for a man to continue under the power of sin, yet to put on a form of godliness. When tempted with money to do evil, see what a perishing thing money is, and scorn it. Think not that Christianity is a trade to live by in this world....
