The REAL APOSTLES died on the mission field:
2 Timothy 4:6-8 (New American Standard Bible)
8 in the future there (F)is laid up for me (G)the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on (H)that day; and not only to me, but also to (I)all who have loved His (J)appearing.
The FAKE ONES just fly their golden parachutes into “Emeritus” status and hand the reigns over to their Pimp Heir Apparents:
Pastor Dr. Frederick K.C Price, founder of the Crenshaw Christian Center (CCC) passed the baton to his son, Pastor Frederick Price Jr., recently during the church’s 35th anniversary celebration. Pastor Price, Jr. will be installed as pastor of the 22,000 member mega-church on Sunday, March 15, 2009, his 30th birthday.
“Fred will start his public ministry at the same age Jesus did. That is prophetic,” said the Elder Dr. Price who will be 77 next year. “I will still be around as your Apostle and working with the board of directors, but it’s time for Pastor Price, Jr. to get into the driver’s seat. I will still mentor him.”
Since when did “Apostles” need a “Board of Directors”? What is so “prophetic” about Lil’ Freddy stepping into his dad’s fuzzy fedora and fur trench coat at the same age that Jesus started His public ministry – does this mean that Lil’ Freddy is going to preach the TRUE GOSPEL OF JESUS, or that same “blab it and grab it” crap that his dad has been spouting for the past 30+ years?
I’ve already written at length about how much error surrounds “Apostle” Fred. Still, I had hoped that the sheep in his congregation would flee that heresy and sit under sound biblical teaching. Instead, Lil’ Freddy is going to add to his “success” as a “hip-hop youth pastor” and take his dad’s heresy into the stratosphere:
“Becoming Pastor of Crenshaw Christian Center is an honor of high esteem,” said Pastor Price, Jr. “To follow in the footsteps of my father, the Apostle of Faith, is a privilege and a challenge I look forward to taking on.”
“I will still uphold the same high standards of teaching and excellence my father brought to the pulpit” said Pastor Price Jr.
Is Lil’ Freddy going to try to become an “Apostle” too – or will he settle for just being the Senior Pastor Pimp? Come on, CCC’ers – if you never thought about running away before, you might want to start packing a bag now…
