The other day, I had this observation:
It seems like the majority of the time, Charismaniac preachers base their sermons out of the Old Testament. They base their teachings about tithing and giving out of the Old Testament. They rationalize their millionaire lifestyles by using themes and passages from the Old Testament.
They neglect what the New Testament has to say about humility, servanthood, and loving worldly goods.
When they prophesy, these same Charismaniac dudes (and dudettes) are lightning-quick to declare that Old Testament rules and regulations for prophets do not apply to them. They will not be held to Old Testament standards for truth or accuracy. They invoke what they see as New Testament protection for mistakes as they exercise their “prophetic” gifts.
What’s wrong with this picture?
