The Blind Leading the Stupid

White and HarveyMore and more it seems the blind are leading the stupid.  We have T. Dexter appearing on Oprah’s show.  The Preachers are out there imitating the world.  And now, Paula White appears on the Steve Harvey Show to give marital advice.

A couple of weeks ago Ms. White was a guest on the Steve Harvey show.  She was there to counsel a couple who are having difficulties that revolve around religious differences.  She is a “minister” (whatever that is) and he refuses to go to church.

First, let’s remember that Paula White has been divorced twice and married three times.  While I am tending to give her a pass on her first divorce (she was a teenager and probably as dumb as most teenagers), her second one is more problematic.  We wrote an article on her here. last year.  You can see it here .  Her counseling a couple on making a marriage work wouldn’t be such a big deal except for the fact that she advertises her church as the place where she is delivering spiritual truths that transform lives.

Her life does not seem to be overly transformed (two divorces and three marriages; both of the later marriages to previously divorced men).

Steve Harvey keeps insisting he is saved.  While I can’t see the man’s heart and no one wears a label saying “SAVED” stitched to their forearm, I can hear his mouth and the sexual innuendos he continuously throws out during the show.   The latest one, for instance, had a male stripper giving a member of the audience a lap dance.  I guess I should be glad that at least the audience member was a woman.  These actions completely negate any confession of faith he may wish to present.  Last week he taught a woman how to tell people to kiss her behind (expletive cleaned up).

Finally, what about the couple having the problems?  There’s the husband, York, who doesn’t want to waste his time in church.  He’s an agnostic.  Either that or he is incredibly immature as a Christian.  I can see him agreeing to come on the show.  As an agnostic, he just doesn’t know any better.

On the other hand, the woman, Yvette, professes to be a Christian, a woman who loves God, who is so serious about it, in the words of the show’s producers, she became an ordained minister.  Why in the world would she go to either Steve Harvey or Paula White for advice?  The one good thing is her expression when Paula talked about having love and having God.  But we’ll get to that in a minute.

So we’re going to have Paula White, the woman who left her second husband because of “irreconcilable differences,” counsel them on reconciling their differences?  Really?  Why not have Bill Clinton counsel a couple on the need for faithfulness and monogamy?

While Paula was “counseling” the couple, she said:  ‘If you have love, you have God.”

What?  Maybe she meant if the love of God dwells in you, then God dwells in you.  Because only those who have God can have the love of God.  Maybe that’s what she meant.  The Bible says:  He who has the Son, has the life.  He who does not have the Son does not have the life (1 John 5:12).

Here’s the video.

Steve Harvey’s behavior is really inconsistent with his profession just on the most basic level.  James, chapter 3 tells us:

 9 With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God; 10 from the same mouth come both blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be this way. 11 Does a fountain send out from the same opening both fresh and bitter water? 12 Can a fig tree, my brethren, produce olives, or a vine produce figs? Nor can salt water produce fresh.

But he again shows his lack of understanding by inviting Paula White to speak.

For years, Steve Harvey has been professing Christ.  But I have to say he seems further away from that confession as each day goes by.

Paula White?  She is simply showing herself to be one who will do whatever it takes to have her fame, even if it is at the expense of those who tune in and take for true the swill she dispenses.

Stay away from these people.  Warn your Christian friends about them.  Talk to your unsaved friends for as long as they will listen.

    These are Hollywood preachers and reality show entertainer. Keep your heart and voice on the word and Holy Spirit or these people will drive you right into HELL!

    These two are the church playing church! Church mess!

    Just passing through the neighborhood and thought I’d drop by. Remember me? I have to agree with you on this one. These people are reprobates.

    (MN: I surely do! Good to have you back. )

  4. Tee Says:

    This situation was wrong on more than one level. First of all, if the wife claims to be a Christian, why would she EVER agree to go on a show that Steve Harvey hosted? Second, she would have to have been underneath a rock for the last 20 years not to have heard something about Paula White and her shenanigans. Third, if she wanted any counseling for her marriage, why didn’t she take it to the pastor of her church? This was foolishness beyond measure. But then, what would one expect? The lady says that she is an “ordained minister”…I won’t even get started on that one!

    Glad to see you are still around, Melvin…

    People of God: One of Paula’s strongholds on people of color is that she is perceived to, “preach like a pentecostal black preacher” and for many black folks, that makes her OK with them. No substance…just style but we fall for it each and every time. I wonder. Has anyone ever sat down with Steve Harvey and showed him a more Christ like way to express himself? After all of these years of professing Christ, Steve Harvey apparently has not changed a wit as to his growth in the Lord. The same ol’ Steve…trying to be cool with the world and not lose a paycheck and yet being somber about Christ when he needs to turn on that
    personality when it suits his purposes. Steve has no
    discernment if he invites the likes of Paula on his program.
    My advice: leave both Steve and Paula alone. In their current state, they have nothing to offer the Body of Christ.Nothing.

    Good Heavens! I see Tee and Aubrey up there! Anyway, on with my comment.

    I do not believe that people are deceived by Paula. I would say that most, if not all people know that a woman is prohibited from being a pastor over a congregation (unless it is over women and children only) and that a pastor can only have had one spouse (unless the previous spouse died prior to the subsequent marriage.

    People refuse to read their bible.
    People refuse to obey their bible.
    So, people are not deceived but rebels (IMO).

    Matthew 7:1-3
    1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

    2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

    3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

    and –

    Galatians 6:1

    Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

    14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.

    15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

    16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.

    17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.

    ****** Brother or Sister (as you have hidden your identity) (MN: I hope you read your bible more thoroughly than you do my website. The link “About me” tells you my name, where I live, my background and a bunch of other stuff. However, I know that you do not read your bible carefully just by your comment. If you would, tell me why Jesus, Paul, and others say we are to judge righteous judgment.)This style of bashing is wrong since you have not listed NO ONE prayer for them but tons of criticism. What scripture are we standing on as we wait for you to call there church offices to make good on the bible and meet “between you and him alone”

    I am praying the above scriptures for you. Love Veda

      The body of believers judge the Body of Believers:

      9 I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people. 10 Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. 11 But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner—not even to eat with such a person.

      12 For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside? 13 But those who are outside God judges. Therefore “put away from yourselves the evil person.”
