hat tip to What Eric Thinks for the link…
Creflo (Cashflow) Dollar is one of the most prolific minstrels in the pulpit today. Cashflow and his ilk couldn’t exegete the Word of God if their lives depended on it. At best, Cashflow is a complete idiot in all things relating to sound biblical teaching. At worse, he’s a false teacher. Neither assessment bodes well for a man who claims to be a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ OR the sheeple who hang on his every false word. Maybe that’s why Cashflow looks so confused holding the bible in the picture above…moving along…
We already know that Cashflow hasn’t taken the time to study what the Word of God says about prosperity and material wealth, but now we know that he doesn’t even study the bible at all while preparing flowery prose to shake the loose change from his followers. Instead, Cashflow has decided that it’s easier to garner allegiance if he scares the hell out of you – or into you…literally.
Not Your Typical Negro has video of Cashflow yesterday, inadvertently preaching on a story he found on the internet. Take a look at the entire video before commenting:
I know, really compelling illustration, right? Except for the fact that the story that Cashflow is “preaching” is an internet hoax that was debunked a long time ago (links below have been upated):
- “Well To Hell” Hoax (Wikipedia article)
- “Well To Hell” Debunked (Snopes article)
- “Background on the Drilling to Hell story” (article where hoax admitted)
- “Investigation into the Sound of Hell” (audio analysis)
So, Cashflow is a lazy false teacher who doesn’t even take the time to research such a compelling claim. But why?
Could it be that by providing such compelling evidence that somebody actually “found hell”, Cashflow could literally scare the hell INTO his followers?
You don’t want to pledge allegiance to the mand of gawd? YOU’RE GOING TO HELL!
You want to “rob God” by not surrendering your money to Him (through Cashflow, of course)? YOU’RE GOING TO HELL!
You don’t want to join this church and be a faithful son or daughter to this ministry? YOU’RE GOING TO HELL!
This illustration could serve as yet another reason to roll your eyes at Cashflow and run in the opposite direction – were it not for the serious heresy and apostasy that spews from the pie-hole of Carlton “The Heretic” Pearson. Pearson denies that hell is a real place, and he’s taking his demonic roadshow to the airwaves to influence as many people as he can.
Pearson (whom I consider to be demon possessed) is a reprobate who denies eternal damnation as consequence of rebellion from God. Cashflow, who is becoming an unwitting accomplice to Pearson through lack of study, will turn yet more sheep away from God – and into the arms of wicked Carlton Pearson.
Once the sheep feel “duped” about being able to “hear tormented souls from hell”, they may very well doubt that hell exists. Then, they might start believing that “all good people go to heaven – apart from belief in Jesus Christ”.
And Pearson’s demonic work will continue.
Do you think I’m paranoid and “ringing a false alarm” ? Well, many people dismissed these false teachers long ago – “no one will ever believe their lies”…well, these false teachers pack their clubs every week, and the sheep swallow their lies hook, line, and sinker. Destructive heresy has crept in and become prevelant in the church because “astute bible scholars” shrugged off the potential impact.
Make no mistake about it, hell is a real place where the wicked and unbeliever will go when they die (Romans 6:23), and Jesus Himself speaks of eternal damnation in hell (Matthew 3:12; 25:41).Hell is a place of eternal fire, torment, and destruction (Mark 9:44-49, Luke 16:23-24, 2 Thessalonians 1:9, Revelation 14:10-11, Revelation 20:10), and many will find themselves there (Daniel 12:2). Those who find themselves in hell will still have to acknowledge God’s perfect will and their own part in their destruction (Psalms 76:10, Deuteronomy 32:3-5)
The ONLY antidote to eternal damnation is belief upon the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin and salvation (John 3:16-18,36) – and this is the entire reason that the Gospel message is preached in the first place. You can’t win people to Christ by scaring the hell into them – you may win some folks to take up seats in your sanctuary, but you won’t keep them there UNLESS you continue to come up with even more dramatics and theatrics to scare them all the more.
Now, Cashflow’s message will forever be known as the one based on a proven lie…just like his false teachings on financial prosperity and the “little gods” heresy.
