She led Trump to Christ

It was an early afternoon in late July, and Paula White was holding court before an audience of about 25 Southern Baptist ministers in an ornate diplomatic reception room in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. The televangelist was recounting one of her favorite stories — about when Donald Trump reached out to her in 2011 for guidance on a possible White House run. “Would you bring some people around me to pray?” she said he asked her. “I really want to hear from God.” White recalled that she and another pastor gathered about 30 ministers from different evangelical Christian traditions at Trump Tower in Manhattan. After the prayer session, when Trump asked her what she thought, she responded: “I don’t feel it’s the right timing.”

He listened, she continued, and the two talked and prayed about the matter over the next four years. When White again gathered religious leaders at Trump Tower in September 2015, she backed the decision he’d already made to run. Videos on YouTube of that event show her standing on his right, head down, laying hands on him as she prayed.

Trump is no Christian and Paula White is a heretic.

There are so many "issues" with Paula White I hardly know where to begin. But let's start with her "Prosperity Gospel"--the idea that certain Christians (if they give generously to the church) will prosper personally---and deserve it. You've probably heard the phrase "all good gifts around us come from heaven above".
Let's proceed to issue numero dos. White proclaimed Trump is "raised up by God" and then she compared him to Queen Esther...while she was a guest on the JIM BAKER SHOW. Jim.Baker.
Moving on. In 2007 White and several other "prosperity pastors" became the focus of an investigation because they refused to provide financial disclosures and seemed to be rolling in dough. Hint: Churches are non-profits.
AND....meanwhile, back at the White mansion, trouble brewed in paradise the Whites marriage ended, Paula's son became a drug addict and Paula started cranking out books proclaiming things like “Anyone who tells you to deny yourself is from Satan”.

I'm not surprised that Trump sought out Paula White. After all, she's beautiful. She's wealthy. She's successful....must be all that praying...but here's the thing. The pastors I have known and worked with don't live in a mansion. They live in a parsonage or get a housing allowance. They don't seek fame or power or money or presidential prestige.
Apparently gone are the days of my childhood--the days of the "Love your neighbor" gospel. The message of peace and unity has disappeared from the altar.
Welcome to the Trump-era, where each American is seen as either an ally or an enemy. Winners and losers. Most of us will be classified as losers.

I agree that there are people that pervert the Gospel for gain. However, there are still those that preach the true Gospel. Can we agree on that?

That we can agree on. Now as to what the true gospel is, that is where things fall apart.
