However, they will need to move from one dimensional homily to multifaceted. Their sermons are not different from those of Paula White, Joel Osteen, Rick Warren, Rod Parsley, Juanita Bynum, Bonnke and other TV preachers. The little white boy’s theme is holiness while his black counterpart is the wellbeing of people. You listen to them no matter the passage they will take they will preach on those themes. That is the theme of predilection that they have. It may seem like inherited theology but it is not. As a child they need a simple message to handle and explain themselves. Remember there is nothing bad. In Christ there are various levels of Christianity: those who drink milk and those who eat bones. Most of the TV preachers are out for new babes and not for irokos. More so some are called evangelists and others are teachers, prophets and administrators. It is clear that the administrator will not preach on salvation like the evangelist nor would he teach like the teachers.
Teachers can teach the dullest of the dumbest a complicated concept and philosophy and they understand. They navigate from one theory to another and still land with ease. There comes a time when these kids are confronted with real theology then they will study to shew themselves approved unto God, workmen that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth by looking unto teachers like John Hagee, Jack Van Impe and other multidimensional preachers.
Therefore, the Bible says “touch not my anointed and do my prophets no harm” (I Chr 16:22). Since we do not know if they are truly appointed or called by God then we have to follow Gamaliel’s counsel: “refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God” (Acts 5:38-39).
Until then, no one can kick against the goads.
