Dollar’s detox

Reputed American televangelist Creflo Dollar made the opening presentation of his three-day Empowerment Prosperity conference to scores of Barbadians at the Wildey Gymnasium last night, telling them he was going to detox them from bad religion.

The crux of his message was aimed at eliminating the confusion when it comes to mixing the requirements of the Old Testament with those of the New Testament.

Dollar, whose wife Taffi will also be making presentations, argued that while there are a lot of people who say they are Christians, they do not know the Word of God.

He dismissed the notion that a person was either an Old Testament Christian or a New Testament Christian.

“The New Testament is Jesus Christ revealed. The Old Testament is Jesus Christ concealed. Until you put on New Testament glasses, you would not be able to understand and see what you need to see in the Old Testament. And so, tonight and tomorrow morning, Taffi and I are going to take you through what we call a detox. We are going to detox you from bad religion,” the evangelist declared to loud applause.

Dollar said his approach to this Empowerment Prosperity conference would be different to traditional meetings.

“This is not one of those meetings where I am going to be preaching and sweating and waiting on you to give me a grade. It’s one of those meetings where we’ve got to convince you of the Word of God, that something has been drastically missing in your understanding of the Word of God and who God is.”

Citing a series of scriptures, Dollar informed those attending the meeting that the 10 Commandments no longer determined their relationship with Jesus Christ.

He insisted that the only aspect of the commandments which Jesus directs people to embrace was “love God with all your heart and soul and mind, and love your neighbour as yourself”.

Dollar reasoned that if a person loved God and loved others as themselves, they would not do any of the things prohibited by the commandments.

Dollar chided church leaders for perpetuating what he termed compulsive Christianity disorder, where people are constantly condemned and forced into fear when they go to church.

“People need to be free from this doctrine,” he said.

The Empowerment Prosperity conference concludes tomorrow with two sessions, one at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m., at the Wildey Gymnasium.

    If anyone else has a problem with keeping this dirty, dirty, toxified money that is polluting your soul, I do free money cleansing. I will clean all of it out for you, your family, everyone. It is a curse and a gift that I must use in the service of mankind. So release those paper and gold burdens. I will save you

    Thank God for truth! Many of these detractors ^^^ would never have been friends with Abraham, Job, Solomon or any other men who God blessed beyond measure in the Bible.
    Why? Because of the same bad religion of which Creflo speaks. He is right! You are not a Christian by association or by tradition. You are one because you have a relationship with God based on truth of Jesus Christ. We Bajans have been gullible in the past but only because we seek truth.
    Don’t try to stop people from seeking God because you are cynical. He says if we seek Him we shall find Him. He is not man that He should lie.
    Bajans need more than detoxification… we need blood transfusions! #thebloodofjesus

    PS Barbados Today disappoints me on this headline because it is not Dollar’s Detox. This is something God is using him to do.

    It is amazing how all three comments talk about either money or business. The man is trying to explain the gospel to us so we can hear and be healed of our problems. God can give us the solution to our problems if we would sit and listen to His Word. People are talking more about money than the preacher. Knowledge is valuable and those who value knowledge will find out the solution to their problems. Listen to what the man has to say and then you can decide whether to believe it or not.

    A televangelist named Dollar. Says it all but guess there will be many who will be happy to increase his funds even if it means they have to miss a meal or two.

    you do not need a foreign evangelist to tell you that the greatest Christian precept is to ” love God above all things and your neighbor as yourself”..and further we will be judged by the beatitudes..”when I was hungry, you gave me to eat etc”, and “whatever you do to the least of my brethren you do unto me”. Enough said!!!!

    The bible said, its easier for a camel to crawl through the eye of a needle, than a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.
