RE: Joseph Prince
One of the things that is common with these types of groups is the asking for support and the more you give the more favour you have with God and of course the organization or leader. We saw similar with the Prayer of Jabez mentality > http://www.seekgod.ca/jabez.htm and Creflo Dollar, Hagin, Copeland etc.
In the teachings about giving money aka donations to Joe's organization, the more the amount given, the more special recognition is given to that person, and of course it is said more favor from God is given.
IN 2007 the partnership spiel stated:
Quote:We appreciate your decision to be a partner of Joseph Prince Ministries! As a partner, you will be blessed with the following partnership benefits:

Currently, 2011, the upgrade of favors and benefits givers of money receive is like this, with each getting a specified colored card--similar to a credit card:
Quote:Partner With Us:
Each 'giver' receives a little plastic card showing just how much they are favored, plus, to those special 'inner circle' partners, more of Joe's 'teachings' are the reward of increased favor with God.
THose givers of money get blessed and favored by God according to how much money each gives.
And the Scripture that supports that doctrine is, not suprisingly, totally missing.
Who says money can't buy everything you ever wanted.
I am so reminded of these verses:
Jas 2:1 My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.
Jas 2:2 For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;
Jas 2:3 And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:
Jas 2:4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?
Jas 2:5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
Jas 2:6 But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?
Jas 2:7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?
Jas 2:8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
Jas 2:9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
1Co 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
1Co 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
1Co 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
1Co 2:15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
1Co 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
2Pe 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2Pe 2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
2Pe 2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
3John 1:4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
