Donald Trump’s ‘spiritual advisor’ sells eternal life for $1,144 by stealing from Harry Potter

Published

on

Every president and presidential candidate boasts of having spiritual leaders in their lives, but Donald Trump’s is making money selling desperate Christians eternal life for the bargain price of $1,144.

Despite all of Trump’s statements mocking the religion of others, televangelist Paula White is apparently responsible for leading Donald Trump to Christ. However, she might have the same believability problem with evangelical voters that Trump has. Politico reports that a series of IRS investigations, business troubles, divorces and rumors of affairs in tabloids all plague Ms. White and have caused other evangelicals to question her authenticity.

Worshippers who streamed into the doors of New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, Florida on Easter Sunday got the surprise of their lives when their senior pastor offered them an opportunity to cheat death, the Christian Post reports. For a little over a thousand dollars, folks could purchase a “resurrection seed” she told them was set by God. Like the “resurrection stone” out of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, this seed would presumably resurrect anyone who has died.

“I don’t know what is dead. I don’t know what the enemy sent a death to. I don’t know what decision that caused death to come upon whatever the situation you’re facing, but I do know that God has sent me to you to bring resurrection life,” she told the crowd along with scripture on Lazarus. “To tell you that I believe that as we put our faith together before Easter Sunday on March 27, there’s gonna be resurrection life in your life.”

She told the audience that she doesn’t generally get so specific about money, but it was God that gave her specific instructions on the dollar amount.

“There’s someone that God is speaking to, to click on that donation button by minimizing the screen. And when you do to sow $1,144,” she told the crowd. “It’s not often I ask very specifically but God has instructed me and I want you to hear. This isn’t for everyone but this is for someone. When you sow that $1,144 based on John 11:44 I believe for resurrection life. You say, Paula, I just don’t have that, then sow $144. I don’t have that. Sow $44 but stand on John Chapter 11:44.”

Then like an infomercial proclaiming “but wait! There’s more!” White promised those buying the “resurrection seed” that they would also get some special prayer cloths that might cause “miracles, signs and wonders.”

“There have been times that I have taken prayer cloths that have been anointed as a point of contact. I put them in my loved one’s sneakers, I put them under their bed. I put them on parts of my body that I believe God for healing,” said White.

But if someone purchases the “resurrection seed” and finds that it has failed to resurrect anyone, White explained that it’s probably user error. “Cause there are things I’ve prayed out of ignorance or asked out of my own desire and I said God, but your will be done. ‘Cause I knew, His word is His will. See His will is for whatever is dead in your life to come back to life. How do I know? John 10:10. Jesus came to give you life and give you life more abundantly,” she explained. “So click on and minimize that screen and right now sow your miracle resurrection seed as we stand in faith together and I believe God for your miracle.”

Like Trump, when it comes to criticism of her controversial past there is only one to blame: The liberal media aka Satan. That’s what she preaches on today for Trump.

“I don’t know who she is, I don’t have any contact with her, I’ve never met her, never talked to her, the most prominent her name has been is, she’s tied to Trump,” said David Lane, an influential evangelical leader GOP candidates gravitate to. He also added that White’s brand of “faith” doesn’t represent the mainstream to traditional Christians. “She can’t move evangelicals,” he explained.

But it was White, not former presidential candidate Ben Carson or former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) who put together Trump’s evangelical advisory committee, as others have claimed.

White said that her special relationship with Trump has been one that has enabled her to see him interacting with common folk. White mentions a construction worker and Latino groundskeeper at a golf course she witnessed Trump shake hands with and thank for their hard work. This is evidence to her that Trump is a man of God.

“Paula White is a charlatan and recognized as a heretic by every orthodox Christian, of whatever tribe,” a recent tweet from prominent Southern Baptist leader Russell Moore reads.

White owns the label of a preacher of the “prosperity doctrine,” which says that God wants people to be rich. However, she rejects that the focus of her ministry is rooted in wealth. “Do I believe that God is a sugar daddy? Not at all,” she claimed. “Find your passion in life and figure out a way to make money,” she explained her teachings.

Despite decades in Florida’s religious community, White is still not very well known to Christians there. However, the IRS and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) know her for her ministry’s lavish spending habits that grew into investigations and a Congressional inquiry during the early 2000s. Despite a $2,300 contribution to meet Barack Obama, White claims she has voted Republican “my entire adult life.”

Trump raked over the coals by WSJ for ‘politically stupid’ racist comments debacle

Published

on

In a brutally blunt column from the conservative editorial board of the Wall Street Journal, the editors scolded Donald Trump for being "politically stupid" by wading into a dispute between factions within the Democratic Party that has blown up in his face.

Under a headline reading, "Defining Politics Down," the editorial seemed less concerned with Trump's racist attacks and more with the fact that he has made his racism front and center as the country gears up for the 2020 election.

Dear NeverTrumpers: Either help or STFU

Published

Bill Kristol Max Boot David Frum
Over the past few weeks, you may have noticed that the NeverTrumpers — repentant Republicans and conservatives — have been offering up lots of advice for how the Democrats can win the next election. Their jackhammer advice has basically been limited to urging the party to disavow its activist, progressive members in order to secure the contrarian swing voters who cast ballots for Barack Obama twice, then switched to Donald Trump in 2016.

Before I offer up a come-to-Jesus moment for the NeverTrumpers, let me say that as many of you know, I’ve defended members of this exiled faction in the past, and continue to stand by the idea that we need to form a coalition to close the loopholes exposed by Donald Trump’s malfeasance as a means of preventing another, perhaps more dangerous monster from sashaying through the Trump-shaped hole in the wall. To be clear: I’m not talking about conceding on policy or platform planks. I’m merely suggesting a detente between voices who all agree that Trump is a menace and his presidency is an existential national crisis.

Morning Joe panel brutally dismantles Lindsey Graham for doubling down and backing Trump’s extreme racism

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough was left speechless by Sen. Lindsey Graham's impassioned defense of President Donald Trump's racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen.

The "Morning Joe" host sat in stunned silence after rolling video of the South Carolina Republican defending Trump's tweets, and doubling down by hurling his own slurs against the first-year lawmakers.

"You call Americans in Congress communists?" Scarborough said, after gathering his thoughts, "and you say they hate America? And then your punch line to that is aim higher?"

Scarborough, who served alongside Graham as a Republican congressman, said the episode was a shameful new low for the veteran lawmaker.
