...were the words I just heard, as I flicked through my TV channels.
I stopped to watch for a while and I was filled with such sadness, as the man on a pretty reputable TV broadcast, said that God had 'told' him that if people gave £213 in 2013, within 21 days, they would be healed, their financial situation would be turned around, their relationships rstored etc etc.
The woman stood beside him and then said that God had told her there were 'recording Angels' in Heaven. These 'recording angels' existed to write down everything we gave. She didn't say why or where that came from.
This stuff makes my blood boil. It is so shockingly manipulative for people in desperate circumstances. Many, many people watch these programmes out of sheer desperation and to my mind, it's nothing but heresy to suggest that giving a certain amount to a certain ministry, will ensure their healing.
I just cannot see any Biblical justification for this type of thinking or teaching.
