Prince is not the only one. I have seen charlatan prosperity preachers dare to use the story of Ananias and Sapphira to promote tithing! This story has nothing to do with money or tithing. It has equally nothing to do with God punishing unbelievers and protecting the church. In his sermon Prince actually said this story "consoles me" because it shows that God protects His church and that in "this age of grace" that God will deal with anyone who tries to harm the church. Apparently Pastor Prince does not own a television or computer. Churches across this world are being destroyed and the Christians martyred for their faith. I guess that doesn't fit in well with the pie in the sky hyper grace theology so better to turn a blind eye to it and pretend it doesn't exist. Better to take a biblical story that has withstood centuries of examination and have the gall to say that you know better than everyone who has ever come before you. I have news for Mr. Prince. Even though God still deals with the sins of man either through His decretive will or His permissive will, He does still protect His church; His bride. That however should not be a point of consolation to Joseph Prince. It should be a point of fear.
