Prosperity gospel televangelist and Trump spiritual adviser Paula White is raising eyebrows with a new scheme that involves urging her followers to donate a “first fruits” offering of up to their entire salary for the month of January to enjoy “blessings” for the rest of the year or suffer the “consequences” of failing to follow God’s command.
As reported by The Christian Post, White launched a “First Fruits” campaign on her website that asks her followers to ring in the new year by sending her their first month’s salary.
“Each January, I put God first and honor Him with the first of our substance by sowing a first fruits offering of one month’s pay,” White writes. “That is a big sacrifice, but it is a seed for the harvest I am believing for in the coming year. And God always provides! Every year many others join us and sow a month’s pay, a week’s pay, others give a day’s pay, but everyone gives their best- The results are miraculous!”
The heretic preacher told her followers that it’s important to donate money to her at the start of every new year because i”t helps you get off on the right foot with the Lord.”
“All Firsts belong to God,” she says. “When you honor this principle it provides the foundation and structure for God’s blessings and promises in your life, it unlocks deep dimensions of spiritual truths that literally transform your life! When you apply this everything comes in divine alignment for His plan and promises for you.”
However, White also warns that bad things could happen to followers who don’t send her money this month because to not do so would contradict God’s word.
“When you don’t honor it, whether through ignorance or direct disobedience there are consequences,” she writes.
The controversial TV preacher, who opened the National Day of Prayer Event at the White House last year, has drawn criticism from many Christians over the years, including her business in which she sells believers “resurrection seeds” that will grant them eternal life for the low price of just $1,144.
God help us all.
