So sad is the perversion of scripture.
So, this church is using the pain and grief of others as a fundraising gimmick. Shame.
This is a scandal.
I think this family has stopped soliciting any funds and is preparing for the funeral. They collected over $60K!
I don’t know what they plan to do with all that money.
The nicest person in the world can be tempted by greed when faced with a Big Money Bomb. I hope they do the right thing and give the $ back.
No doubt the parents are in a profound state of grief right now. That church is definitely not helping address that.
Pastor must need to buy his wife a new Mercedes for Christmas.
I can imagine people being out of their right minds with grief, but their church is supporting this? And.. the girl “stopped breathing”? What happened? Too strange, too sketchy.
The spirit of antichrist revealed right where one would expect, in a mega church of dead souls who will be taken in by signs and wonders.
Megachurches - The biggest con artists around.
I followed Mark Marks, who runs a "healing ministry" whose primary "miracle" seems to be the leg-lengthing trick. When challenged on the effect of his particular prayers, the answer is: "So, you don't believe God can heal?"
I was a member of a healing church for years. I took what they had to say with a grain of salt, because I did believe that Holy Spirit was working, often in spite of the leadership. Finally I realized I would need a whole salt mine to buy what they were selling.
Not to me - I can't see any 'church' using such a thing to raise money. What a perversion of Scripture!
What the Hell?
On life support? ... at the coroner’s office? Likely she is in refrigeration preservation.
And there, in my opinion, is the central issue. Worship is NOT so that you can feel better about yourself; it is to give thanks and praise to God.
When a church reduces the gospel to being about what it can do for you, you're lost - or at least missing out on one of the most important aspects of Christianity; the turning of your hearts to Jesus and focusing on Him instead of yourself.
