There is an evangelist named Paula White who asks her followers to send in an entire month’s salary to her so that they get off to a good start with their god in the new year. Failing to do so, she warns, has consequences. And that is not all the tripe that she peddles. She claims that she can bring the dead back to life.
White, who opened the National Day of Prayer Event at the White House last year, has drawn criticism from many Christians over the years, including her business in which she sells believers “resurrection seeds” that will grant them eternal life for the low price of just $1,144.
Eternal life for $1,144 may strike many people as a bargain. I wondered whether White offers a money-back guarantee if it does not work out. She does not but explains why it may not always work.
But if someone purchases the “resurrection seed” and finds that it has failed to resurrect anyone, White explained that it’s probably user error. “Cause there are things I’ve prayed out of ignorance or asked out of my own desire and I said God, but your will be done. ‘Cause I knew, His word is His will. See His will is for whatever is dead in your life to come back to life. How do I know? John 10:10. Jesus came to give you life and give you life more abundantly,” she explained. “So click on and minimize that screen and right now sow your miracle resurrection seed as we stand in faith together and I believe God for your miracle.”
Remember, these people’s religious rackets are all tax-exempt. It should not be a surprise that she is a ‘spiritual advisor’ to fellow huckster Donald Trump. They have both mastered the art of conning the gullible.
