Pastor Leroy Thompson, preacher of the false prosperity gospel

When it comes to bad teaching about prosperity Leroy Thompson is one of the best examples.  When I looked at some of the videos on YouTube I could not believe how stupid people are to follow him and to believe in his false teaching and pure heresy. It is amazing to see folk throwing money at him and supporting his "work". It appeals to people's greed; it fleeces the flock rather than feeds them!

His message is not about Christianity at all. It is a disgrace. Where is the message of true discipleship, genuine repentance and sanctification?  Leroy Thompson is concerned about serving mammon and the love of money.

Jesus, however, talked about the deceitfulness of riches. Paul mentions the love of money being the root of all evil. 1 Timothy 6:6-10 needs to be heeded.

Godliness with contentment is great gain. We brought nothing into the world and we cannot take anything out of it. We should be content with food and clothing. Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap, and into many foolish and harmful lusts that plunge them into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
