It appears as though the original “Pretty Paula” – the original Florida Gator pimpette – has slithered back into the “pulpit”. This should-be criminal has returned to the place where she and her husband have robbed so many people, a failing church club that continues to stand as a shining example of the bankrupt and morally corrupt “Prosperity Gospel”. I can’t help but think of scripture:
Proverbs 26:11-12 (New American Standard Bible)
11Like a dog that returns to its vomit
Is a fool who repeats his folly.
12Do you see a man wise in his own eyes?
There is more hope for a fool than for him.
Well, the dog has certainly returned to the vomit:
Charismatic preacher Paula White is stepping in as senior pastor of the Florida megachurch that she and her now ex-husband founded nearly two decades ago.
On Sunday, White was expected to officially mark the start of a new chapter in the history of Without Walls International Church, which once attracted 23,000 worshippers and was heralded as one of the nation’s fastest-growing congregations.
“It will be my first Sunday to officially preach and to minister to you as the mandate and the mantle that I’ve received for the great assignment for this city, for this ministry, and for our lives collectively as your new senior pastor,” White reported in an eBlast to the Tampa-based congregation.
A mandate from who, the Devil? Sorry…read on…
In an interview with the St. Petersburg Times on Friday, White said he was stepping aside as senior pastor because of health concerns and that he has been in and out of the hospital for much of the last seven months.
“I have some serious health issues right now,” the bishop said. “I’ve had six different doctors say that I had to take the stress, the pressure out of my life.”
As a result, Bishop White called up his ex-wife about two months ago to inform her of his health situation and to ask her to consider returning to lead the congregation they once pastored together.
After much prayer and counsel, Paula White decided accept the mandate and mantle of senior pastor of Without Walls International Church and the entire ministry organization, according to Paula White Ministries.
“Pastor Paula is very excited about this wonderful assignment and opportunity from the Lord,” her ministry reported. “We know this is the divine plan of God and that great things are in store!”
