PROSPERITY GOSPEL FACTS

Prosperity Gospel Believers also have the biggest drop out rates, lowest education, lowest incomes. I'M NOT SUPRISED. The poor are always victims to messages/commercials about get-rich-schemes

Prosperity Gospel Believers also have the biggest drop out rates, lowest education, lowest incomes. I'M NOT SUPRISED. The poor are always victims to messages/commercials about get-rich-schemes

I came across a very interesting article on the Prosperity Gospel and the facts presented. These televangelist, like The Stockstills, get rich while their congregations either remain on an income plateau or mire in poverty because they gave too much and the church abandoned them once they in turn needed help. So without aid they are now underwater. Furthermore, the education level of most of the adherents are below average which is the root of their Biblical-Illiteracy which in turn caused them to believe the eisegesis.

I’ll let the original author speak for himself.

LARRY THE LYING $TOCK$TILL PT.3 Monday, Sep 28 2009 

hypocrisy

Larry Stockstill continues to have all the right words but all the wrong practice. As more and more people are fleeing from his authority and revealing the scams and coercion tactics of Bethany, he claims to have spoken with a represenative from the Billy Graham Ministry about their success. Lying Larry claims Bethany has ALWAYS followed a particular rule of not speaking against other ministries:

Finally, they would never criticize other leaders from the pulpit. Using the pulpit to elbow past your competitors is not the will of God.

That is EXACTLY what we are doing in the “Remnant” movement for pastors. Thousands of pastors are reading that book and resetting their values. It’s good to know that Billy Graham did that exact thing 60 years ago and is still going strong. I believe God will do it again for the new generation!(Sunday, July 19th, 2009 at 6:23 am)

The first and obvious thing we see is the continue promotion of his book “Remnant” not God’s book, the Bible(which is free) but Larry’s Book which he claims is getting these insufficient pastors to finally start “…RESETTING THEIR VALUES”. Lying Larry needs to start with his own house before he attempts to straighten out “THOUSANDS OF PASTORS….”. Both Larry and Joel have provided false prophecies and abuse of the Scriptures to steal money from naive christians.

Osteen's service is an uninhibited celebration that's part rock concert, part spectacular. There are no crosses, no religious symbols whatsoever. It's all taped and broadcast around the world. His service is seen in 100 foreign countries and is the most watched religious broadcast in America.

According to his CBS Interview, Osteen's service is an uninhibited celebration that's part rock concert, part spectacular. THERE ARE NO CROSSES, NO RELIGIOUS SYMBOLS WHATSOEVER. It's all taped and broadcast around the world. His service is seen in 100 foreign countries and is the most watched religious broadcast in America.(Click Here For entire article by CBS News)

Larry made the claim that Bethany “…WOULD NEVER CRITICIZE OTHER LEADERS FROM THE PULPIT.”. However, Joel Stockstill just condemned JOEL OSTEEN’S Church. Anyone familiar with Joel Osteen’s numerous interviews know that their Church is very liberal and does not display crosses or any religious relics or talk about sin, they only “motivate” people AND JOEL CONTRADICTS LARRY BY STATING:

“…when I hear PREACHERS say things like “our church doesn’t have a cross or anything like that in it” as a statement of relevance and persuasion to attend I GET DISGUSTED!(Posted Aug.29,2009. 11:19am)”

“No longer do LEADERS allow the gifts of the Spirit to operate in the gathering of believers on Sunday morning for fear of making some poor visitor uneasy. (most have no need to disallow because they couldn’t move in the gifts if their life depended on it!(Posted Aug.29, 2009, 11:19am)”

Joel’s criticizing The Osteens because they support Pres. Barack Obama while Joel promoted Sarah Palin/McCain during the campaign. Larry King’s interview has The Osteens stating that Pres. Obama “…DOING A GREAT JOB, LOVES THE LORD, I BELIEVE HE IS A CHRSTIAN“. Joel has yet to make any respectful statement(click here for entire interview with Osteens and Larry Kings):

“Larry King: Since you were last on, we have sworn in our first African-American president. What are your impressions [of Barack Obama]?

Joel Osteen: Well, I think he’s doing a great job. I’m impressed with his skill, his calmness, his just strength under pressure. These are tough times for him.

King: And you, Victoria?

Victoria Osteen: I’ve been really impressed. In fact, I’ve been impressed [with] the first lady. She stepped up, and she’s done a remarkable job.

King: Recent polls show 12 percent of Americans still believe Obama is a Muslim, and 35 percent say they don’t know his religion, but to most of them it don’t matter. Should it matter?

Joel Osteen: Well, it matters to me. It matters to me that I know he loves the Lord, and I think it’s important that he has convictions from his faith. So to me, it matters when I’m making my personal decisions.

King: Does it matter to you, Victoria?

Victoria Osteen: It does. It matters to me. … I believe he is a Christian.”

Instead Joel continues the paranoid statements made by white christians that Pres. Obama is the an agent of the Anti-Christ. This statement has never been made from Bethany until an African-American took office:

“Yes, there is a spirit of anti-Christ that would try to take over our govt and nation, but yet there is still a remnant of righteous men and women who have been placed there strategically by the Holy Spirit.(Click Here)”

Question to those who deify the Stockstills. Who’s the liar? Larry or Joel? THEY JEALOUSY IS ELBOWING PAST THE COMPETITION!! Bethany claims ony 10,000 members and national televised airing while Joel Osteen’s Church has 30,000 and international airing. But Bethany would never speak against another leader, LOL. The Stockstills are annointed, the problem is they’ve used dirty oil. As “Chris P.” commented in the blog “Joel Condemns Michael Jackson”:

“Ummm…Ovadyah you’re wasting your time with “The Remnant’ LOL,

The blacks you see that stayed behind at Bethany are “sell-outs”. The Stockstills could crap in their lap and tell em it’s an annointing and they will believe it. There’s no amount of proof that will open their eyes, I’ve been there. They use your state as a sinner against you anytime you speak against their prophet “status”.

Furthermore, look at the black leaders that remained. They have no soul!! They didn’t attend a (H)istorically (B)lack (C)ollege like Southern University, they don’t hang around blacks, they don’t know black slang, they don’t use black dialect, and they don’t even listen to black gospel music. That is how they were recruited by The Stockstills, they(The Stockstills) saw these negroes at L.S.U. and loved their “good-ole boy” demeanor and that will be the closest thing to a black minister.

I say all of that to say this. I understand your expose’ but blacks like the above will refuse to even look this way because the Stockstills have convinced them that God will punish any contesting. So, those of us who left enjoy your stance but the remnant that was bullied into staying, WILL STAY NO MATTER WHAT. You’re wasting your time trying to get them to think apart from what the Stockstills are telling them.

Joel Condemns Michael Jackson To Hell Pt.2 Monday, Sep 28 2009 

****IMPORTANT****DO NOT CONFRONT THE SO-CALLED “PROPHETS” AT BETHANY ANYMORE!! JOEL ADMITTED TO USING VIOLENCE(HERE) TO SUPPRESS CONFRONTATIONS! HE EVEN LAUGHED AT THE “BEATDOWN”SIMPLY TAKE YOUR FAMILY BY THE HAND AND FLEE TO SAFETY!! AGAIN DO NOT CONFRONT THEM********

SERIOUSLY DO NOT CONFRONT THE CORRUPT PRIESTS ANYMORE!! FLEE!!

GET BACK IN YOUR SEAT BOY!!

In part one(CLICK HERE), we applied the exact same double-standard to Joel Stockstill’s wife and the defendants cried foul. Why? Their claim was the same, Joel is above God’s Law, we’re aren’t to condemn whites(one standard for blacks another less critical for whites).

This hypocrisy is made evident by Joel Stockstill’s own admission! Remember the harsh standard he applied to M.J.? Well, HE DIDN’T APPLY IT TO HIS ALL WHITE BAND(HERE, called MUTEMATH)!! In fact, he admits that this all white rock-and-roll band is addicting to listen to. In his twitter entry on SEPT. 04, 2009 he states(click here):

“ok, im not big on any music that isn’t worship but the new Mutemath cd rocks! cant get enough!”10:38 PM Sep 4th from web

Wow….!! What a double standard! As his history clearly shows, if people in his black congregation start complaining, one or two things will happen when they confront him:

  1. He, like his daddy Lying Larry, will quickly point out their “disclaimer”

298_mutemath

Those who attend this cult where beatings are issued to anyone who contests Bethany’s Prophets please take my advice. DON’T CONFRONT THEM ANYMORE!! SIMPLY TAKE YOUR FAMILY AND LEAVE!! AGAIN DON’T CONFRONT THEM!! YOU’RE IN DANGER!!

Now, back to The Stockstill’s second damage-control tactic. Joel always places small disclaimers in his statements:

  1. politicians do the same to re-direct money in their pockets
  2. used car salesmen place them in their contracts to get you stuck with a clunker
  3. cellphone companies do the same to hit you with extra charges
  4. These “as seen on T.V.” pitch-men use disclaimers to push their faulty products
  5. Insurance companies use disclaimers to deny coverage after you’ve paid for years

IT’S A SCAM!! Joel’s disclaimer above will certainly be used as a disclaimer to those who see his JIM CROW STANDARD. Joel Stockstill stated, “OKAY, I’M NOT BIG ON MUSIC THAT ISN’T WORSHIP BUT…..”. Don’t fall for it, he totally cancels that disclaimer by the conjunction “BUT…”. He clearly used a double standard for this all white band.

If he used his white-standard on Michael Jackson nobody would’ve had a problem BUT just like he did with Palin/McCain during the campaigns, whites are always right according to his grading curve but blacks have to be perfect!!

This all white band that Joel finds addicting admits THEY CALL RELIGIONS LIKE CHRISTIANITY A “BARRIER” to music YET Joel Called them “CAN’T GET ENOUGH(click here)”:

For us, we just try to keep it simple. We’re obviously a band; that’s really all we ever wanted to be from the very beginning without catering to any particular genre or political or religious agenda. We just want to make music with no barriers.

Paul MeanyBoise WeeklyApril 11, 2007

On top of this, MUTEMATH SUED TIME WARNER FOR PUTTING THEM IN A CHISTIAN CATEGORY!! This rock band that Bethany’s Prophet finds “addicting” hates Christ so much they actually sued their parent company for marketing them as such!! Now that’s hate for Christ that should be exposed! BUT JOEL TURNS A BLIND EYE AGAIN TO HIS WHITE BROTHERS!! This white rock band said identifying them with Christ “HURT ITS IMAGE”, LOL, and y’all call Joel annointed??!!

“Mutemath has filed suit against their label Warner Bros. for breach of contract and negligent misrepresentation. While in negotiations with the label, they were told their releases wouldn’t carry the Word Records branding, a Christian imprint of Warner. Their first Warner album included the Word logo, which the band felt hurt its image, inspiring them to sue.”

Didn’t your self-proclaimed prophet just rebuke those who indulge in activities where Christ is not present? Did he not just condemn a black musician but later praise these white rock-and-roll musicians??!! This band admitted in the Boise Weekly that if they catered to a religion like Christianity it would be a “BARRIER”. Why is Joel praising this band and not “speaking the truth” as a man of God? The sell-outs at Bethany claim that Joel Stockstill is an annointed Prophet who speaks the truth, yet we continue to see he does so with a DOUBLE STANDARD. White rock-n-roll is praised while blacks like Michael Jackson are shredded to pieces. You wanna see blacks in modern day slavery who know their place? Go to Bethany, LOL. They know what will happen if they step out of line, again, in Joel’s own words “Can you say Big Mike….Beatdown!”.

Say Massa Joel Is Annointed Boy....Say It!! Say It!! He's Good White Folks!! Say It!!

Say Massa Joel Is Annointed Boy....Say It!! Say It!! He's Good White Folks!! Say It!!

y’all continue to swallow this poison and stay in your place or else….BIG MIKE will put you there!

Big Pimpin’ At Bethany.Com Friday, Sep 18 2009 

Joel Stockstill has went from failed prophecies to Big-Pimpin’ in a short time. As the blacks under this kid’s authority continue to make sacrifices to Larry Stockstill’s 20/20 Vision program,  Joel contiues to use their donations for material gain$. After receiving a fully loaded Honda four-wheeler his new toy is a black Cadillac Escalade with 22″ rims:

 

Joel's Continues Making Financial Sacrifices To His Father's 20/20 Vision Program and Practicing What He Preaches About Not Being Flashy With Material Wealth. Notice in his Twitter entry he doesn't say "Hey Church.." but "Hey World...."; Who else would be of interest which such Worldly possessions?! Certianly not the body of Christ!

Bethany's Prophet Joel Continues to contradict what he preaches about material possessions and defy his father's call to make financial sacrifices to Bethany's 20/20 Vision program. It shouldn't be of a suprise since Larry Stockstill doesn't even obey his own 20/20 Vision program. Who believes it? The gullible congregants who continue to make sacrifices, LOL!! http://www.yfrog.com/froggy.php?username=hippofloat

 
Notice in their prophet’s Twitter entry, he doesn’t call on the “Body of Christ” to lust over his worldly possessions but calls on the only entity that desires such material wealth, “WORLD look at my new lade….”. I had no idea that donations to a Not-For-Profit organization such as Bethany.com could spend such donations on Personal-Enrichment?! He even does a play on words about not lacking anything in HIS HOUSE or HIS GARAGE,LOL!! I CAN’T BELIEVE HIS BLATANT DISREGARD AND THE BLINDNESS OF HIS CONGREGANTS WHO CONTINUE “GIVING OVER AND BEYOND”.  Yes, I”m laughing at y’all!!
 
World take a look at my new ‘Lade. She’s sittin on 22″ & black as night. Nolack2 in the house (or garage) twitter link
 
Has anyone at Bethany, especially the Stockstillians who write in here, called Joel on this hypocrisy? Or has the double standard been applied once again?
 
THE OTHER CHILDREN IN MAC’ HEAVEN??!! 
Yep, while your kids in Baker can barely afford a computer their children all have their own Macintosh Laptops. Anyone familiar with technology will immediately know those laptops are the more expensive ones on the market. Again, why are you told to make sacrifices while they endulge in self enrichment??!!
Please Continue To Give $$$$ Our Kids Need More than yours!! Your Blessing Is Coming!! Ummm, oh yeah, THIS IS THE YEAR OF BREAKTHROUGH, have more faith. What's Larry's other one? Oh yeah, Your money is cursed, give more to "Reverse The Curse", LOL!!

Now from the man himself, Larry The Lying Stockstill, who instructs his followers to make sacrifices by postponing trips has recently announced:

“ON THE PLANE BOUND FOR SOUTH KOREA” http://twitter.com/larrystockstill/status/4991778863

 

It’s okay if The Stockstills’ lifestyle contradict their preaching! According to the Stockstillians who obey “The Stockstills Are Annointed!!”.

 

I'm annointed and divinely appointed when you go broke don't be disappointed. Your money is cursed and needs to be reversed by giving all to me your annointing will burst.  I know it's been a while and you gotta hungry child who is sick with diarhea, I can't help you now I'm chillin' in Korea, LOL.

I’ve also noticed the Stockstills are rarely in Baton Rouge during the weekday. I’ve been informed by those who decided to leave that after the Presidential Election, Joel and Larry have been very hard to reach to address their concerns BUT LO’ AND BEHOLD they pop up in time to collect offerings on Sunday??!! During the weekday they leave their house negro to “beat down” (as Joel puts it) anyone disturbing the waters.

Joel, G.I. Joe, Hypocrisy and Violence Tuesday, Sep 1 2009 

Joel Stockstill(Head Youth Pastor) has exposed his ultimate hypocrisy and status as a false man of God. As very well documented, he goes around condemning people for their actions and getting deified by those under his authority as “a true prophet of God, a man of God, etc.”. How can this be when he admits to spending God’s money to watch a movie filled with “violence….mayhem….profanity“?

Many sites that review motion pictures are upset at how Hasbro Toy Co.(targeting children) have corrupted this cartoon into a very violent fim.  HOWEVER, Joel Stockstill doesn’t(Like Frame By Frame.com) rebuke such entertainment. The further silence to such hypocrisy of their prophet is obvious, “IF JOEL LIKES IT, WE LOVE IT!! HE’S DA BOSS!“.  Do the youth of Baton Rouge not look up to their Youth Pastor for guidance and fruit of maturity and godliness, WHERE IS JESUS, JOEL? Practice what you preach. You condemn violence in your blogs but not in practice.

 

Joel Stockstill, Youth Pastor, Calls This "HIGHLY ENTERTAINING...FUN". Yet condemns the church and the world for low values and worldliness??!!

Parents need to know that this relentless action adventure inspired by the '80s cartoon/toy line is filled with extreme (albeit minimally bloody/gory) violence. Kids will want to see it because they're the ones who play with the toys, but there's no end to the parade of characters who are slashed, stabbed, shot, or dispatched in various other ways (it's important to note that, unlike in the similarly inspired Transformers movies, most of the victims here are people, not machines). There's also a lot of potentially scary medical imagery -- needles, scalpels, painful-looking procedures, and more -- and some intermittent strong language (including "s--t"). And Hasbro, the company that makes G.I. Joe toys, co-produced the movie -- meaning that the story doesn't contain product placement so much as the product placement contains a story.(THIS REVIEW WAS BY COMMONSENSE MEDIA@ http://www.commonsensemedia.org/movie-reviews/gi-joe-rise-cobra

 

   Joel Stockstill(A Youth Pastor at Bethany.com) in his twitter entry praised the violent G.I. Joe Movie as “HIGHLY ENTERTAINING” and “FUN“! This movie has been labed as “TOO VIOLENT” for our children. Even by the world’s standards it’s described as:

 

STRONG SEQUENCES OF ACTION VIOLENCE AND MAYHEM THROUGHOUT(CLICK DESCRIPTION FOR LINK)”

 

Questions for those who continue to deify this hypocrite:

 

  1. Why does the world have more godly standards than your prophet? Joel calls it “HIGHLY ENTERTAINING”  and “FUN“but the movie rating system calls is “STRONG ACTION VIOLENCE AND MAYHEM THROUGHOUT”.
  2. Why isn’t he being rebuked for praising such worldly and violent films?
  3. In his latest blog did he not ask the world  “Where is Jesus?(click here)”, so where was Jesus in this movie??!!

 

Furthermore, Joel’s own words convict him as a hypocrite in his blog “Where Is Jesus?”. In it Joel is rebuking carnal christians and rebukes those who display violent characters in sports and shames those who even have  “…a bad temper on the golf course”. YOU HYPOCRITE!! First take the plank out your own eye!! What about giving God’s money to go see a film too violent for the majority of youth under your authority. If 13year olds and under couldn’t even get in, WHAT ARE YOU DOINT THERE??!!  His own words convict him:

 

“His precious Word is being manipulated and torn apart to fit what itching ears want to hear and what scintillates the crowds.”

 

AND

 

“No longer are the fruit of the Spirit valued. (Anyone with a bad temper on the golf course is now deemed “competitive” and not simply carnal and lacking self-control.) No longer do leaders allow the gifts of the Spirit to operate in the gathering of believers on Sunday morning for fear of making some poor visitor uneasy. (most have no need to disallow because they couldn’t move in the gifts if their life depended on it!) No longer is seeking the Lord Jesus for His direction and heart something required to lead a church. With creative teams and multimedia presentations becoming our only focus there is no room left for the direction of the One we used to know as Master.”

 

You hypocrite and snake! Not only does that describe BEthany in general but Joel in particular! Joel has aligned himself with those he condemened. Even a liberal christian(who Joel rebukes constantly) site who recommends it for older crowds, WARNS:

“The biggest problem, for the younger kids, is the film is too violent and complicated to be a PG-13.(Click here)”

 

What Will Our Youth Think When Their Minister Finds Violence and Worldliness "HIGHLY ENTERTAINING......FUN"?

What Will Our Youth Think When Their Minister Finds Violence and Worldliness "HIGHLY ENTERTAINING......FUN"?

 

Yet, this so called youth minister never gave us this warning. Would he show this in church? I’LL ASK YOU THE SAME QUESTION YOU ASKED IN YOUR BLOG……”WHERE IS JESUS?” in this film you found “Highly Entertaining……Fun”??!!
