With a faith undaunted by the task at hand, this mother, humanitarian and beloved mentor is also the Senior Pastor of New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, Florida, a non-traditional church with a multi-cultural mission whose membership ranges in the thousands. A gifted exhorter and motivator, the core of Paula’s message is “delivering spiritual truths that transforms lives”.
As in secular life, the vast majority of the pulpit pimps are men. But there is an occassional woman among the ranks. Paula White, excuse me, Paula Cain is one of those women.
The parapgraph at the beginning of this essay is from her web site. It says she has “faith undaunted”. It says her message is, at the core, one of …”spiritual truths that transform lives.” And it points out that New Destiny Christian Center (that’s the name of her church) is multicultural.
I want to focus on “spiritual truths that transform lives.”
More than anyone, I know the marriage relationship is very difficult, even if you are totally dependent on the Sprit of God. We have been married forty years. I spent the first twenty-five (I was saved the whole time) stepping on every mine in the field and going back to check on a couple to make sure I covered them all. The next ten were spent trying to repair the damage done during the first 25 years. So yeah, marriage is difficult. It was mostly Peggy’s willingness to be obedient to Christ that kept the whole thing from blowing up.
I said all of that to say this: Paul’s “Ministry” is one that “…transforms lives.” In a couple of other places on her site, she says:
Paula White Ministries operates under the premise that the solutions to all of the problems we face in Life are rooted in discovering, nurturing, and propagating a lifestyle of engagement with God through Jesus Christ.
Paula is now in her third marriage. Her last one ended because of irreconcilable differences. Her hsuband is now on number four.
Sheeple are so gullible (I’ve been told I should say this rather than “stupid”.) But I guess if you go with Word of Faith and a women pastors, it’s not that difficult to ignore Scripture in a lot of other ways.
The woman preaches the power of God, but she lives like the unsaved.
I say this not to condemn her but to warn you sheeple to get away from her. For several reasons she is not qualified to shepherd a flock.
The most obvious and probably least agreed on by various denominations, is the obvious fact that she is a woman. Scripture says that a pastor/bishop/elder is to the hasband of one wife. So unless we are going to go lesbian, this is talking about a man. But even aside from this, Scripture lays out several additional standards.
The elder should be of good reputation. As I said, poor ol’ Paula is now working on her third marriage, with a fellow who is now working on his fourth. And she is rumored to have have been…um…intimately involved with another Word of Faith televangelist by the name of Benny Hinn, another person who talks alot about a life changing ministry.
But despite this, the sheeple continue to support her. They continue to see her as an anointed woman of God rather than just a pimpette, telling people what they want to hear and promising them what they want to get. They continue to send her a “seed”, be it $69 dollars based on her butchering of Psalm 69, or $20.15 becuase you want 2015 to be your year of Breakthrough.
Walk away from her, run to Christ. Walk away from her “ministry” and run to the Word of God.
