Many of you may have never heard of Tamara Lower or know who she is. She is a motivational speaker and the founder of a money-making how-to course called Kingdom Builders. She regularly twists the Scriptures to make egregious claims such that God desires for all of us to be wealthy and rich and claims that she will teach you from the Scriptures how to do so if you will sign up for her academy. Lowe has a podcast on Charisma News
According to CBN, Lowe had a rough childhood which she was ultimately brought out of.
Tamara Lowe grew up on the streets of New Orleans. At age 10, she was taking drugs. She became a drug dealer at 12 and dropped out of school in the eighth grade. For the next decade, she went from one drug-induced high to the next. Then, Tamara had a life-changing transition – she got motivated.
She claims she has worked face to face with many well-known celebrities and world leaders, including Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, George HW Bush, and Bill Clinton, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Canadian Prime Minister Joe Clark, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, Billy Graham, Colin Powell, Joe Montana, George Foreman, Goldie Hawn, Charlton Heston, Bill Cosby, Christopher Reeve, Rudy Giuliani, Mary Lou Retton, and Mother Teresa.
Tamara Lowe is a false teacher. She teaches a false gospel–the Word of Faith and Prosperity Gospels as well as a heresy called Positive Confession. Positive Confession is the practice of speaking things into existence or using the power of your words to create and manifest your desires. Lowe is on the Elijah List, a forum for New Apostolic Reformation false prophets to proclaim what “God has told them.” Lowe prophesied the following:
GOD HAS GIVEN ME THE POWER TO CREATE WEALTH! I say that unapologetically. “Wealth” is not a four-letter word. In fact, at the risk of offending you, I’ll go so far as to say if you’re struggling financially something is very, very wrong!
Her teachings and false prophecy are diametrically opposed to the Word of God, which states that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God (Matthew 19:24). Scripture repeatedly asserts that often times the believer’s temporal life will be replete with suffering and calamity for the cause of Christ (Phillippians 1:29, 1 Peter 4:1, Acts 14:22, etc.). Further, the Scriptures teach us to lay up for ourselves treasures in Heaven rather than useless treasures in this life–they won’t last (Matthew 6:19-21).
Lowe has proclaimed several Health and Wealth “prophecies” which are archived on the Elijah List website.
Tamara Lowe is not someone a true believer should have anything to do with. She is a false teacher who seeks only to promote herself. She proudly claims that she preaches a “non-religious” gospel, which is evident by her associations with many other false teachers and her ecumenical alliances. You can regularly find her on heretical outlets such as TBN, CBN and Charisma Mag while associating with others of her ilk such as Joyce Meyer, Reinhard Bonnke, and Darlene Zschech. Regardless of where you find her, she will be surely accompanied by multiple ads and promotions asking you to sign up for her services while using the name of God, Scripture, and religious and secular celebrities to promote her false teachings.
