Poor People Can Produce Lots of Money

by Staff
April 18, 2008

MEDIA ADVISORY, (christiansunite.com) -- The following statements are from a letter received from by The Christian Worker Magazine from a reader in Kampala Uganda. This one, like many others, tells of a reality hidden from the world's eyes. Driving Hummers and riding in Limousines, evangelists are spreading the gospel of wealth and greed to an audience who is eager to climb out of the poverty they live in. Poor African people can produce lots of money.

Preaching a powerful message, the well dressed evangelists summons to the isle men, to take a collection given to God. Eagerly pleading for more, his out stretched hands make motions as he speaks of the great blessing that God will poor out on the people. "If you give more, God will bless more; how much do you want to be blessed?" is the plea the audience hears. "It's all about the money," says the reader.

"Things are moving very fast and my observation is that 75% of Christians are conforming to standards to have material possessions and those who are poor are being condemned for not having faith in God."

Using one line from the scriptures, whole sermons are preached to fit the agenda of wealth and prosperity. "There is one pastor I know, in the suburbs of Kampala, who of recent became a millionaire within a single year; something has to be done!"

The term suburbs is genrally used when speaking about modern cities; never would you expect to hear people refer to the suburbs of Kampala, Uganda; yet suburbia is alive as African nations have modern cities being erected as commerce is helping to change African economies.

A devotional Bible study, The Christian Worker's Spiritual Food, is read throughout many countries in Africa. The difference it brings to people's lives is shocking. A simple verse by verse devotional study through books of the Bible is not heard of in most African churches. Yet this type of study is what makes Christians strong and able to see a counterfeit when they drive up.

"Since I subscribed to your teachings 4-5 years back my prayer life has never remained the same. I use the teachings for Bible study and devotions with friends and family groups. The study has brought us far from manipulation of many schemers of the Bible preachers."

When asked about the response received, Lou Austad, the Author of The Christian Worker Spiritual Food said, "Exegetical Bible Study needs to be in every church around the world. Starting at chapter one verse one, people need to not only read the scripture, but study the scripture to see how it applies to their life and to keep in the writer's intended context. Topical preaching is good, but exegetical preaching makes people sound in doctrine."

The Bible must be preached the way it is written. Missionaries and missionary organizations need to insist that the Bible is taught the way it was written. To find The Christians Worker's Spiritual Food Bible study see ChristianWorker.org.
