This is the danger with the charismatic movement. Because they hide behind the symbol of the cross, and their mega churches seemingly good intentions,
they can get away manipulating and deceiving vulnerable people.
They cleverly twist scriptures around to suit themselves and only further their own agenda- which always seem to be Money and a ton of it!
These are the false prophets that Jesus warned about. And because these people know the wise will spot them out, they have to try to
overcompensate with charisma, knowledge of biblical scripture off of memory, they will speak in a condescending, aggressive and authoritative tone so
as to scare people into thinking they must be Men of God, to speak with such confidence etc... But Jesus said we would be known by our fruit. I'm not
judging, It is for God and only God to know each and everyone's heart, but I am not naïve. And I do not trust that any spirit that truly comes from
God would be so pre occupied with obtaining money and power in this life, when God's spirit's work is to transform hearts and get them focused on
the next life! Now I'm not saying we don't all have moments where we wish we had more wealth, but most of us just want that because we don't want
our loved ones or ourselves to suffer, we want to feel safe in the shelter of our own homes, have food on the table, not have to worry about financial
ruins putting strain on everything etc... But there is a difference between your average person who would want wealth to feel protection and want to
bless others with their wealth v.s Somebody who will inflict fear upon people, manipulate sacred texts within the bible for their own gain, and desire
power and wealth for complete means of control. People who desire this, normally end up becoming friends with the world- and thus enemies of God
