Paula White Asks God What He’s Hungry For, How She Can Feed Him

Paul White, who claims to have led President Trump to Christ, asked God on Facebook yesterday what he’s hungry for and how she might feed him.

White is newly married to her third husband, Journey rock musician, Jonathan Cain. As her marriage to Randy White ended, Paula was having a rather public affair with Benny Hinn, and as a result, it ruined his marriage as well. Nonetheless, “White-Cain” is still a prominent feature in charismaticism, and recently appeared on rapist and convicted felon Jim Bakker’s survival food infomercial.

Some gave obvious criticism to the ridiculous notion that God (the Father) eats, that God the Father is hungry, or that we are capable of feeding Him.

Psalm 135 reads, “The idols of the nations are silver and gold, the work of human hands. They have mouths, but do not speak; they have eyes, but do not see; they have ears, but do not hear, nor is there any breath in their mouths. Those who make them become like them, so do all who trust in them.

However, as the Psalmist writes, “For I know that the Lord is great, and that our Lord is above all gods. Whatever the Lord pleases, he does,
 in heaven and on earth, in the seas and all deeps. He it is who makes the clouds rise at the end of the earth, who makes lightnings for the rain
and brings forth the wind from his storehouses.”

The notion of a God that needs anything is absurd. The notion that God would eat anything taken off the hands of this woman is perverse. Any passage that may refer to God “consuming” sacrifice is anthropomorphic language. Furthermore, Jesus is the Bread of Life that has come from Heaven (John 6:25-59). If God the Father was hungry (and He’s not), Jesus would suffice.

Paula White’s god appears to be a needy idol. Perhaps she has to waken him up in the morning as well.
