Prosperity health & wealth preacher Paula White, who is one of President Trump’s spiritual advisers, once asked her followers to give a “first fruits” financial offering claiming that there are “consequences” for those who don’t do so out of “ignorance or direct disobedience.” White urged people to click on a donate button to give their first fruits offering to her ministry. “I want you to click on that button,” she pleaded, “and I want you to honor God with His first fruits offering.” At one time there was a YouTube video of this but, not surprisingly, it’s no longer available. As well, any mention that she encouraged people to give a “first fruits” offering has been removed from her website (More here). Word of Faith/prosperity/health & wealth/name-it-and-claim-it beliefs are unbiblical. In fact, the prosperity gospel saves no one.…
Because Paula White insists on teaching the prosperity gospel, she is a heretic, right up there with her mentor, word-faith mogul Bishop T.D. Jakes. Hard to believe President Trump would choose Paula White, with all her baggage (which he’s fully aware of), to work for the Office of Public Liaison. In this capacity, White will oversee outreach to groups that help organize parts of the president’s base. Keep all this in mind as you read the The Hill’s report.
White, who has known Trump since 2002 and who has visited the White House several times, will work in the Office of Public Liaison, which oversees outreach to groups that help organize parts of the president’s base, The New York Times reports.
Her specific role will reportedly be advising the Trump administration’s Faith and Opportunity Initiative that aims to boost the voice of religious groups in certain government programs, The Times notes.
The Times notes that the move comes as Trump looks to maintain support from religious conservatives in the months leading up to the 2020 presidential election.
But while Trump has taken actions — including executive orders, cabinet appointments and judicial nominations — evangelicals Christians approve of, White is a controversial figure, meaning her appointment will likely become another source of contention among this group, The Times notes.
