That is a mighty sanitized revision of her history Mr. Grady. No mention of how she met Randy White when he was an associate pastor, married with three kids and White was still married as well. No mention how they divorced their spouses to marry each other. No mention how they built Without Walls Church by extorting money from their sheep, and then abandoned the church when the going got tough. No mention of how they had no cause to get divorced. No mention how Without Walls went from the seventh largest church in America to bankruptcy. Not even a care in the world for what might have happened to the 25,000 sheep you casually mention. No consideration for the 3.5 million dollars she spent on that condo in Trump Towers? None of this matters to us anymore as Christians? Wow.
"Fast-forward to 2019. Paula, now 53, restarted her life after her divorce from Randy. She married Jonathan Cain, who was a keyboardist for the rock group Journey. Since she began attending Oval Office prayer meetings and summits, Paula is often the only woman in a crowd of men wearing dark suits. It is beyond ironic that many of the conservative preachers in these meetings don't believe women can be pastors. Yet the president they support calls Paula his pastor. Paula's critics will most likely go after her with a vengeance now. They will ask why a female pastor would support a president who has been accused of being a womanizer. They will demand to know how she can tolerate some of Trump's statements that sound racist. Whether or not you like her preaching or her politics, I don't believe for a minute that you can pin a racist label on Paula. Ebony magazine pointed out in 2007 that Paula was the most popular female preacher on the Black Entertainment Network. Since she was called to preach at age 18, she has spent most her time building bridges of racial reconciliation." -- J. Lee Grady
Now Grady conflates his most recent pet issue, female pastors, with Paula White to avoid the elephant in the room, which is the fact that she is false. The fact that the unsaved and unrepentant president calls her pastor means nothing. When you consider her primary gospel is the prosperity heresy, it is actually no small wonder that Trump would like her. They both worship the same God, mammon. Grady then constructs one of the worst strawman arguments I have seen in a while. First he undersells the fact that the president is clearly racist by saying he has said somethings that merely "sound" racist. Then he somehow transfers that onto White, as if people are accusing her of the same. I have not heard one person accuse Paula White of being racist. She does not care what the race of her victims is. She is an equal opportunity exploiter. The important thing is while Grady has people chasing down these silly rabbit holes, the main topic gets avoided. Paula White as a heretical wolf who is devouring the sheep of the Lord. Just as a final thought here, God did not call Paula to preach at age 18. If He did, He would make himself out to be a liar but that is a conversation for a different devotional.
"Yet while a majority of African-Americans support Democrats in elections, Paula has been a staunch defender of President Trump. During an interview on televangelist Jim Bakker's program in 2017, she said if God had not intervened in the 2016 election, religious liberties would have eroded to such an extent that people would have to pray in underground churches within five years. "God says that He raises up and places all people in positions of authority," Paula said. "It is God who raises up a king. It is God who sets one down." I don't know how long Paula will last in a White House known for its high turnover rate. But instead of condemning her for her flaws, I will pray that God uses her in the halls of power. In this crazy season of spiritual surprises, this flawed woman preacher--who regularly prays for miracles--could possibly help our flawed president make wiser decisions, tone down his angry rhetoric and unite our divided nation." -- J. Lee Grady
Do you agree with White's absurdly hyperbolic statement about religious liberties and praying underground? Do you now support such demagoguery and fear mongering Mr. Grady? Does God not raise up leaders of both parties and use such for His own end one way or the other? This is the weakling God the NAR portrays. The God that always seems to need our help in dealing with those loathsome sinners in the world ruining it for the rest of us good and righteous folks. Except we are not good nor righteous. None are. All have turned from God. the world behaves as if they do not follow God because they actually don't. What is the excuse for the church that claims to?
Paula White does not simply "have flaws." J. Lee Grady used to know better. When we promote wolves, we lead the sheep right to them. Because the NAR has done a masterful job of conflating kingdom goals with utterly carnal ones, the apostate church cannot tell the difference anymore between right and wrong. I do not care about your politics. There is no party nor man in office that cares about the cause of the Lord. This president gets advice from a cornucopia of false teachers. Franklin Graham, Robert Morris, Jentzen Franklin, Cindy Jacobs, and of course his favorite money-making pastor -- Paula White. This should give Christians pause but instead the NAR celebrates it as if this president is the second coming of King Cyrus, with an Elijah mantle and a Deborah anointing. Are you serious? This is Paula White! She once said that anyone who tells you to deny yourself is from Satan! When selling her "first fruits" heresy she said:
'"When you honor this principle, it provides the foundation and structure for God's blessings and promises in your life. It unlocks deep dimensions of spiritual truths that literally transform your life. When you apply this, everything comes in divine alignment for his plan and promises for you. When you don't honor it, whether through ignorance or direct disobedience, there are consequences."' -- Paula White
So she is directly threatening her sheep with the wrath of God if they do not send her a portion of their January salary, if not all of it! She does not deserve our consideration. She certainly does not deserve our prayers. As the key verse teaches us we are to rebuke her. She deserves nothing but our utter contempt and the working end of the shepherd's rod.
