I first found this on the Watchmansbagpipes site, it’s a good one, worth sharing.
“Dave Ramsey should stick with financial advise and leave the Bible alone. “
This is a new site for me…I’ve only looked at the video referenced so I can’t vouch for other things he says but this is amazing….Provides a good reason why churches should not video their “sermons” if you can still call them that. Watch and weep. I am only surprised at how obvious this is. And yes it is present in many churches. I can’t help but feel that all the staff and pastor and guest do is just present a “Christianized” marketing ad….with all the trimmings of creating emotional desire, and guilt to direct you to buy into their product. What a sales game this is. Anyway perhaps in their other sermons they do present the gospel.
Notice that this is essential for maintaining mega-church, note the staff size comment, and the slide that shows Dave Ramsey’s $55m net worth…certainly works for him…but I’m sure he does give it away.
1Ti 3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
1Ti 3:8 Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;
Tit 1:7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;
Tit 1:11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.
1Pe 5:2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
