Furtick has made the news quite a bit lately. Recently, his church posted an idolatrous video, which has since been taken down, practically worshiping Furtick. It’s not unusual for Furtick to preach a message that totally distorts the reality of Jesus Christ, and twists his Word beyond recognition. (See here and here). He regularly partners with other known questionable teachers, such as his recent joining with Mark Driscoll and Perry Noble for a “leadership” conference.
Now he’s joined at the hip with none other than the king of Word of Faith himself, T.D. Jakes. Last weekend he preached at Jakes’ church for the #RunningReckless15 event. The event, as you can see from this video, has nothing to do with Jesus Christ, but all about “me.” It’s a man-centered event that encourages people to use God as a tool to create success and wealth for themselves. Pure heresy.
While Steven Furtick says that Jesus wouldn’t want him to reveal how much he makes off his congregation every year, it becomes obvious why that it is when he makes a production out of giving Jakes’ a $35,000 gift in Jakes’ infamous money wheelbarrow. This gift if more than his average congregant makes in a year. See the video below.
