An Irreconcilabe Paula

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.

    Hey Melvin, it’s Paul Landry. How’s it going? I read this, and not to be nit picky, but there are a few typos. just wanted you to know. Thanks, I hope all is well. We need to get coffee or something soon.

    Love you brother.

    But no Uncle Mel…. you’re being judgmental. You can’t lay your hands upon the woman of God! Don’t you know that? Seriously, all of us are accountable for what we say and do. That includes how we interact with others. If anyone is unsure or has questions- go to the SCRIPTURE!!!!! line up what people say/do against scripture and you will know if you are following someone who is in the Will of GOD. You shall know them by their fruits- mega-ministry is not a fruit- its an attraction with limited accountability. Love, joy, peace those are fruit, check the scriptures. Holiness is a requirement and if we fail to live up to it, we fail to live up to Christ. IDK, just my thoughts.

    (MN: They seem like some pretty good thoughts to me. )

    Now now … touch not gawd’s anointed, Bruh! It’s a new day!

    This is part and parcel of the commercial, institutionalized Congregations today. Apostates is one of the harbingers of Christ return. The earthly but spiritual congregation that Christ spoke of in military terms in Matthew 16 has no ally among these harlot congregations. Except to call by the gospel the elect out of them. I loved the essay informative and helpful as always.

    • Martha Alexander Paskins Says:

      Darrell Hill, I definitely am with you. Pimps/Whores and Harlot congregations are just terms for describing the many in the contemporary church.

    • Anonymous Says:

      I agree and it’s so sad because this kind of foolishness and ungodliness seems to be spreading almost every where, like an out-of-control wild fire. It’s nauseous and toxic.

  6. Martha Alexander Paskins Says:

    You spoke the truth. I’m convinced that people want to be blind and gullible. They simply neglect the Truth of God’s Word, so they follow whatever is pleasing to their flesh. While it may be a new day, the Word of The Living God still stays the same, and someday, all will be accountable for how they handled This Word of Truth. Thanks brother, I enjoy your articles and commentaries.

    Wow…I didn’t realize that she was married again. But of course, I don’t keep up with her so maybe I wouldn’t know. I remember when she and her ex-husband walked out onstage before Sunday morning service and announced that they were getting a divorce. I thought that was rather inappropriate, but hey…what can you expect from wolves?

    Anyone who says a “second marriage” is not adultery is calling God a liar!

    “Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.” –Jesus Christ

    ADULTERY: Having sex with someone who is not their spouse.

    Jesus said: Anyone who marries a divorced person is having sex with someone who is not their spouse.

    “A husband must not divorce his wife.” 1 Corinthians 7:11

    “The Lord God All-Powerful of Israel hates anyone who is cruel enough to divorce his wife.” Malachi 2:16

    “The Lord was witness to the covenant made at your marriage.” Malachi 2:14

    “Thou shall not commit adultery.” Exodus 20:14

    “The man who commits adultery is an utter fool, for he destroys his own soul.” Proverbs 6:32

    “Adulterers…will not inherit the Kingdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9

    “Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.” Hebrews 13:4

    “For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God.” Romans 14:1

    “A woman is bound to her husband as long as he lives.” 1 Corinthians 7:39

    The bond of marriage ends with death. Romans 7:2-3

    Jesus calls remarriage after a divorce ADULTERY because…

    “A wife is bound to her husband as long as he lives. But if her husband dies, she is free to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 7:39

    “For example, by law a married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law of marriage. So then, if she marries another man while her husband is still alive, she is called an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is released from that law and is not an adulteress, even though she marries another man.” Romans 7:2-3

    Divorce does not make you single again.

    “A wife is married to her husband as long as he lives.” 1 Corinthians 7:39

    When a state court gives you final divorce papers that say:

    Jesus said, if you touch another person (remarry) AFTER you get those final divorce papers you are committing adultery.

    Do you really think the state court dissolved your marriage?
