The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Former pastor of Without Walls church, Randy White, arrested for drunk driving

The  former megachurch pastor who once led a congregation of 22,000 at the Tampa ministry,Without Walls, was arrested Saturday night for driving under the influence, Tampa Police said.

Randy White, 53, was stopped by police near Ashley Drive and Interstate 275 around 11:30 p.m.

When police tested White’s blood-alcohol level, he exceeded the legal Florida limit of .08 with blood-alcohol content of .093 and .095.

White was arrested and charged with DUI, but released Sunday morning on a $500 bail.

White had previously led Without Walls with his former wife Paula, before the two divorced in 2007.

According to the Associated Press, the ministry was investigated for three years regarding finances and personal use of church-owned airplanes, luxury homes and credit cards by pastors and their families.

The investigation wrapped up in January with no definitive findings of wrongdoings on the part of Randy or Paula White, however, it was mentioned that they weren’t cooperative during the investigation.

The church reportedly defaulted on a loan and nearly faced foreclosure. After Randy White stepped down citing health concerns in 2009, Paula took over the ministry.

Paula White's Without Walls Sues Former Pastor for 'Stealing' Members


Paula White's Without Walls International has filed a lawsuit against a former pastor from one of its sister churches for allegedly luring members from the congregation to his own place of worship.

In the lawsuit filed last week, Without Walls International Church (WWIC) accuses Randy L. Coggins of making "derogatory statements and allegations" about WWIC while serving as executive pastor at Without Walls Central church (WWC).

He is also accused of using church property and assets for his own personal use, as well as luring away congregants from WWC to his own ministry, Bridge of Hope Church in Lakeland, Fla.

White serves as pastor of both WWIC, which is located in Tampa, and its Lakeland branch WWC.

Coggins, who founded Bridge of Hope Church with wife Sandy Coggins, said he was surprised by the lawsuit, in which the plaintiff requests more than $15,000 in damages.

"I just pray this will be able to be resolved in a godly and Christian manner. These are churches we're talking about, and churches are not supposed to engage in this arena," Coggins told The Ledger.

Coggins, who uses the title "bishop," refused to tell The Ledger the size of his congregation.

On Friday morning, the Facebook page for Bridge of Hope Church had 87 "likes."

White and ex-husband Randy White founded WWIC in 1991, when it was named the South Tampa Christian Center. The couple divorced in 2007 and White took over as senior pastor of WWIC in 2009.

In April, White publicly discussed her decision to divorce her husband, which she has described as amicable.

In the summer of 2010, the WWIC pastor was accused of having an affair with televangelist Benny Hinn. White denied those allegations.

ANOTHER PAULA WHITE UPDATE: Video surfaces of White wrapped in Torah scroll by Eddie Long's 'rabbi'



THE FLORIDA COURIER STAFF: An Orlando-area rabbi, upset that Florida-based televangelist Paula White strongly denied participating in “scroll-wrapping” considered “repulsive and inappropriate” by some Jewish religious scholars, submitted a video that seemingly corroborates that such an act did occur. The video surfaced just hours after White’s attorney categorically and unconditionally denied, to the Florida Courier's publisher, White’s involvement in any such act.



White's 'wrapping' – allegedly symbolic of being “wrapped in the Word of God,” according to  Rabbi Ralph Messer on the video – is almost identical to Messer’s wrapping of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church's Rev. Eddie Long during a controversial, widely ridiculed ceremony that went viral on YouTube.

Criticism of Long was swift and severe from Jewish religious scholars and the Anti-Defamation League, forcing Long to publicly apologize.

White is now pastor of New Destiny Christian Center, founded by the late Zachery Tims. New Destiny is one of Central Florida’s largest churches. She is also pastor of Without Walls International Church, one of Tampa’s largest churches.

How it all started

On Friday afternoon, Feb. 3, the West Orlando News Online reported "rumors that Messer will be in Orlando over the weekend to crown pastor Paula White, new leader of the New Destiny Christian Center (NDCC), queen."

At 6 p.m. that Friday evening – just after the Florida Courier broke a story on the Internet addressing rumors of White’s possible ‘coronation’ – Messer became the focus of discussion on Orlando’s WEUS-AM 810, a local talk radio station.

Host Don Miller of “The Don Miller Show” harshly criticized both Long and Messer. One of the featured guests on the show was  Rabbi Ira Michaelson of the Beth Tefillah congregation in Clermont, just outside of Orlando.

About 10 minutes into the broadcast, Miller confirmed that he heard rumors that Messer was coming to Orlando “to do this” (another Eddie Long-style ‘coronation’) at another church.”

In response, Michaelson said, “He actually already did this to Paula White some years ago...this was after she was divorced from Randy White and before the scandal with Benny Hinn came out. He took her and wrapped her in a scroll and said the same thing - ‘I’m wrapping you in the Word of God.’”

For the remainder of the hour-long show, Miller and Michaelson continued to castigate Messer and Long. Keith Johnson, a minister, author, and former NFL Minnesota Vikings chaplain, spoke of his concern about Long’s New Birth congregation and the impact of Messer’s actions on the relationship between Black Christians and Jews.

(On Sunday, February 5, Johnson preached at an Orlando-area church about how Messer convinced Long’s New Birth congregation “to pronounce a curse on themselves. Click here for video.)

The Rev. Dr. Wil Gafney, an associate professor of Hebrew and Old Testament at The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia, spoke to Miller’s show by phone about how the New Birth ceremony was disrespectful of Jewish religious traditions.

Saturday morning call

In multiple phone calls and emails to Florida Courier Publisher Charles W. Cherry II, Daniel Beirute, Paula White’s attorney, unconditionally denied that White would be 'coronated' as was Long.

In response to Michealson’s quoted allegation that “He (Messer) actually already did this to Paula White some years ago...", Beirute wrote in an email to Cherry as follows:

“I don’t know where Rabbi Michaelson gets his information, but my client categorically and unequivocally denies that that ever happened.”

No longer a story

Based on White’s unconditional denial of the Super Bowl ceremony, Florida Courier editors decided that there was no longer a story and posted a “Final Paul White update with links.” But that was not to be the last word.

Rabbi Michaelson, concerned that White’s denial damaged his reputation, emailed a video to Cherry that seems to corroborate his statement about White.

The video opens up with various instances in which an energetic White picks up or drops Bibles on the floor while preaching. About 36 seconds into the video, a caption appears: “Notice Bible on Floor.” There’s more video of White preaching, speaking ‘in tongues’, and dropping more Bibles.

About two minutes into the video, another caption appears. “If Paula had thrown the Koran to the floor, she would have faced certain death. The Jews rejected her from speaking at their 2007 “day of prayer” (sic) because of the following sacrilege to their sacred scrolls," it states.

Then, in an undated broadcast that seems to be recorded from White’s TV show “Paula,” White agrees to allow Messer and another unidentified man to wrap White in what appears to be a Torah scroll. After saying the wrapping represents protection and being “hidden in the Word of God,” Messer tells White, “Out of something that was thrown off the tracks - like your life - God says, 'I’m going to raise it up and people will read from it and quote it for generations.'"

Messer then says to White, “...The Lord says, ‘You are so sacred to the Body of Christ, I’m wrapping you in the Word of God.’" The scroll seemed to be torn in the process. White appears to be overcome with emotion, then happily shakes Messer’s hand.

Paula White ‘wrapped in the Word of God' – click here for an abbreviated version posted on YouTube of the video submitted to the Florida Courier.

Megachurch Preacher Paula White Marries Rocker Jonathan Cain in Third Marriage

Megachurch preacher Paula White has married rock and roll star Jonathan Cain, making the occasion both her and Cain’s third marriage.

White, 49, is known for founding without Walls International Church in Tampa, Florida with her second husband Randy White. She turned the church over to him years after their divorce in 2007. White hosts the television show “Paula White Today,” which airs on TBN and BET, and now serves as leader of New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, Florida.

She also considers herself a life coach, authoring books such as “The Ten Commandments of Health and Wellness,” “Simple Suggestions for a Sensational Life,” “I Don’t Get Wholeness, That’s the Problem—Making Relationships Work” and “He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not.”

White’s first marriage was to Dean Knight, who she married as a teenager. The two have a son together, named Bradley.

Jonathan Cain, 65, is known for his roles in the bands Bad English and Journey, especially for penning the Journey hits “Don’t Stop Believin,'” “When You Love a Woman” and “Who’s Crying Now.”

His first marriage was to singer Tané McClure, who he divorced and later went on to marry Elizabeth Fullerton, with whom he has three children. Cain recently divorced for the second time, and married White last month.

Cain continues to tour with Journey, and posts about his concerts on his Twitter and Instagram accounts, such as he did earlier this month when he played a casino in Las Vegas.

    Connect with Christian News

“Journey is in the house. Craps anyone? @ The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino,” he Tweeted.

“I know you will rock it tonight,” White messaged to him.

She also shared a photo on her own Instagram, writing, “I love this pic of my baby rocking it last night @jonathancainmusic—missing him tonight.”

In addition to playing secular music with Journey, Cain is also a winemaker as a part of Finale Wines. He thanked Vegas’ Southern Wine and Spirits for carrying his wines in a status earlier this week.

White’s ex-husband Randy says he is supportive of her re-marriage.

“I am so happy for Paula and Jonathan,” he wrote on Facebook on April 20. “I pray they have a great marriage and do great works for the kingdom! I said I would never marry again until I made sure Paula married someone else.”

However, others have expressed concern over the matter, pointing to biblical commands against divorce and remarriage.

“She obviously thinks the parts in the Bible that condemn and severely restrict any justification for divorce (i.e., adultery) do not apply to her,” one commenter wrote.

“This is why the institution of marriage is mocked,” another stated.

Matthew 7:16  Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Mat 7:17  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
Mat 7:18  A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

FALSE TEACHER PAULA WHITE WANTS YOU TO SOW YOUR ‘LAZARUS SEED’ OF $1,144, SHE’LL SEND HANDKERCHIEF BACK

I honestly cannot image the extent to which someone's heart would have to be seared to be able to look into the camera and lie like that. To steal like that. Paula White is a double thief, because she steals from God's word in order to then steal from you.

PAULA WHITE GOES ‘EASTER PIMPIN’ FOR YOUR GENEROUS GIFT OF A THOUSAND DOLLARS OR MORE

“Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.” 1 Timothy 2:11,12 (KJV)

Nothing says Easter like begging for money from gullible, greedy Christians who think that if they somehow give large piles of money to the Laodicean false preachers and teachers, that God will ‘send them a blessing’ and give them piles of money, too. But guess what? It doesn’t work that way. Not even close. And when it comes to ‘holy begging’ for your ‘faith seed’, Paula White can pimp it out like few others can.



Did you see in the video, as she gets all choked up with emotion, that she is able to twist the amazing resurrection story of Lazarus into a springboard for you to write her a check? Girl, she is working it. And not just any old check, no sir. She wants the exact amount of $1,144 because that’s where in the book of John she is ‘claiming your resurrection’ from debt and financial oppression.

“And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.” John 11:44 (KJV)

I honestly cannot image the extent to which someone’s heart would have to be seared to be able to look into the camera and lie like that. To steal like that. Paula White is a double thief, because she steals from God’s word in order to then steal from you.

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;” 1 Timothy 4:1,2 (KJV)

If you have money that God is telling you to give, go find a missionary and his family standing on the preserved word of God, risking everything they have to witness to lost people about Jesus Christ. Help them to stay on the mission field, help them to buy Bible and gospel tracts.

God will absolutely bless that.

But whatever you do, don’t send another penny of your hard earned cash to advance the luxury levels of these paid ‘christian’ liars like Paula White.

Christian leaders say Trump’s inauguration preacher is a ‘heretic’ and ‘charlatan’

President-elect Donald Trump continued to make unorthodox decisions on the way to the Oval Office, and some Christian leaders are not happy about one such choice he made.  Paula White has been invited to deliver a prayer at the inauguration ceremony alongside other religious leaders.

White is a proponent of the “prosperity gospel” which says faith is rewarded with material possessions and wealth, but many Evangelical Christians consider this to be a heretical teaching.

Conservative Christian Erick Erickson was very vocal in his opposition to White, writing, “Paula White is a trinity denying heretic. She rejects the Council of Nicaea’s creed that every Christian accepts. To reject the orthodoxy of the Nicene Creed is to reject Christianity itself.“

The Washington Examiner listed other objections from Christian leaders:

“Paula White is a charlatan and recognized as a heretic by every orthodox Christian, of whatever tribe,” echoed Russell Moore of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission.

“Paula White has a long history of bankruptcies, failed business ventures, and unsuccessful marriages, which makes her the perfect choice to deliver a prayer on behalf a president-elect who has proudly proclaimed that he’s never felt the need to ask forgiveness from God for anything,” complained Paula Bolyard in a post…
White has been a long-time friend and supporter of Trump, whose own religiosity has been questioned by some critics. They cite his odd answers about who Jesus Christ is, whether he’s ever asked God for forgiveness, and his stumbling over quoting the second epistle to the Corinthians from the Bible as evidence that he is exaggerating the importance of Bible teachings in his life.

Supporters like “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson excuse Trump’s religious shortcomings by comparing him to his political opponents and competitors. Former Minnesotan Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann says outright that God has “raised up” Donald Trump to the office.

The inauguration for President-elect Trump will be held on January 20th. So far there is no indication Trump will change his plans to have Paula White pray at the ceremony.

Prosperity Gospel Deceiver Paula White Tells Followers To Send Her One Month Of Their Salary To 'Honor God'

Paula White, who heads up the president’s evangelical advisory committee, suggested making a donation to her ministries to honor the religious principle of “first fruit,” which she said is the idea that all firsts belong to God, including the first harvest and, apparently, the first month of your salary.

“The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?” Jeremiah 5:21 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: The Prosperity Gospel is based on half-truths, lots of lies, and appeals to the innate sense of greed found even in those of us who have been born again. One of the most shameless hucksters of this non-biblical and false system is Paula White. Watch as she looks into the camera, and tells you that the ‘Bible says’ you need to send her ‘one month’s salary’ as a way to ‘honor God’. If not, she warns, you will face non-specific consequences for not complying. Tithing is not for Christians, and no set amount was ever given to any believer in the Church Age by the apostle Paul. Paula White is a fraud, a con artist, and the ease with which she preaches these bold faced lies casts serious doubt on her even having been saved.

“Right now I want you to click on that button, and I want you to honor God with his first fruits offering,” she said in a video shared to her website, in which she encourages her followers to donate to her ministries to get blessings from God.
Pay Paula one month’s salary or face the consequences!

    “If God doesn’t divinely step in and intervene, I don’t know what you’re going to face—he does,” she said.

Explaining the principle of the donations, the Pentecostal televangelist, who has recently spoken out in defense of Trump’s mental health following claims in a tell-all book that the president is unwell, suggested that people would reap rewards after donating to her.

“January is the beginning of a new year for us in the Western world. Let us give to God what belongs to him: the first hours of our day, the first month of the year, the first of our increase, the first in every area of our life. It’s devoted…. The principle of first fruits is that when you give God the first, he governs the rest and redeems in,” she said.

“When you honor this principle, it provides the foundation and structure for God’s blessings and promises in your life. It unlocks deep dimensions of spiritual truths that literally transform your life. When you apply this, everything comes in divine alignment for his plan and promises for you. When you don’t honor it, whether through ignorance or direct disobedience, there are consequences.”

White was among a number of televangelists who were examined after Republican Senator Charles Grassley launched a 2007 investigation into the finances of ministries that solicit millions of dollars in donations. However, the report, published in 2011, did not draw any firm conclusions of wrongdoing.

In her newest video, Paula White encourages people to send her money, stating, “Each January, I put God first and honor him with the first of our substance by sowing a first fruits offering of one month’s pay. That is a big sacrifice, but it is a seed for the harvest I am believing for in the coming year. And God always provides!”

Those who send White money, which she suggests belongs to God, will see positive consequences, she claims.

“When you sow a First Fruits Offering of $75 or more, I will rush to you the book, the devotional and also a Paula White 2018 wall calendar! Track throughout the entire year prioritizing God with me!” her website says. source
THE BIBLE SHOWS THREE GROUPS OF PEOPLE WHO TITHED

The teaching of tithing for Christians is not limited to only the heretical Prosperity Movement, I have been in many ****, fundamental, King James Only Baptist churches that are constantly telling their congregants to “give their tithe”. So what does the Bible have to say about tithing for Christians living in the age of grace?

In the Bible, we see three groups of people who tithed, and they are as follows:

    Abraham
    Israelites living under the Old Testament Law of Moses
    The Pharisees as mentioned in Matthew and Luke

#1). Abraham’s tithe was a one time only event with a deeper meaning. The Bible records that Abraham, after the battle to return his capture nephew Lot, met in the way both Melchizedek and the King of Sodom. Abraham gave a tenth of Lot’s returned goods to Melchizedek while at the same time refusing to receive anything from the King of Sodom. The message here about Abraham’s loyalties are crystal-clear.

“And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God. And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth: And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all. And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to thyself. And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand unto the LORD, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth, That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich: Save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men which went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.”Genesis 14:18-24 (KJV)

When Abraham chose to give a tithe to the pre-incarnate Jesus Christ in the form of Melchizedek, and refused to accept anything from the king of wicked and soon to be destroyed Sodom, we see why he was called “the friend of God”. In the very next chapter, we see God rewarding Abraham for making the right choice:

“After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.” Genesis 15:1 (KJV)

No where in any of this account is a command given, and you will note that Abraham was not commanded to tithe. He did it as a free will offering. Hmm….just like a Christian in the New Testament.

#2). Jews under the Old Testament Law were commanded to tithe. The second time we see tithing is in Leviticus, and it is a command to tithe of the land and of the cattle.

“And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land,or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD’S: it is holy unto the LORD. And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof. And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD. He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither shall he change it: and if he change it at all, then both it and the change thereof shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed. These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.” Leviticus 27:30-34 (KJV)

You will note that the context of the passage shows us that tithing as a command was given by Moses to the children of Israel, the Jews. Christians in the Age of Grace are not the “children of Israel”. Born again Christians are the children of God, not of Israel.

“For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” Galatians 3:26-29 (KJV)

Interestingly, this verse shows up in the same context of Christians being called the “seed of Abraham” in verse 29. Abraham who gave a free will offering, and not figured as from Moses who commanded tithing.

#3). The Pharisees in the New Testament were tithers. When we read about people who tithes in the New Testament, it is of note to observe that they were being rebuked by Jesus Christ for their hypocritical following of the Law of Moses. Tithing here is mentioned in a very negative context.

“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.”Matthew 23:23 (KJV)

Need we say more? Let’s move on.
THERE IS NO NEW TESTAMENT COMMAND FOR ANY CHRISTIAN TO GIVE A TITHE TO THEIR CHURCH

Search the New Testament from Matthew 1 to Revelation 22 and you will find no commands for a Christian to tithe their money to their church. It does not exist. Paul, the apostle for the Church Age whose writings are our doctrine, only mentions giving a few times. Here is the main verse he wrote for us:

“Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7 (KJV)

And there you have the New Testament, rightly divided doctrine of Biblical giving for Christians in the Church Age.God leaves it up to the Christian themselves to determine how much and how often they want to give to the church. God wants you to do it because you have a sincere and honest desire to see the work of the Church continue. Not because you expect a blessing from it, not because some greedy pastor shamed you into it, but because you in your heart want to do it.

But the notion that Christians are to, every Sunday, sit down and write a 10% check of their weekly income and give it to their pastor is not only unbiblical but I believe demonic. There are millions of poor Christians who, because of false teaching on tithing, take the money that should be used to put food on the table and power the light bill and give it to a millionaire pastor living in a mansion. Churches need money to operate on, yes that’s true. But so much of today’s building programs and fund raising only serve to increase the personal wealth of the pastor and those at the  top.

If your church preaches on tithing more than once a year, find a new church and save your offering for people actually trying to get the gospel out. Take a moment and read some of the Bible verses never preached by the Prosperity Gospel crowd:

“But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”1 Timothy 6:6-10 (KJV)
