Scriptures says a double-minded man is “unstable in all his ways” (James 1:8).
Pastor Phil Pringle of the C3 Global Movement does not have honest doctorate credentials:
Is it any wonder we find him contradicting himself like this?
Eph 1:3-4 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ This is the grace (unmerited favor) of God – if you are in Christ, you have fulfilled ALL God’s requirements to bless you. In the Old Testament you had to keep all the law to qualify for blessing, but in the NT the plan is when you receive Christ all God’s requirements are satisfied!!! God has already blessed you. Believe this and you’ll walk into it! Every blessing God has available is yours, in Christ. Nothing can curse what God has blessed. Nothing can curse what God has blessed. Blessing will overcome cursing everytime. Even when people try to curse you, God will turn it into a blessing. There is no curse that will succeed against a child of God, someone IN CHRIST! See you in church!” - Phil Pringle, Blessed, not cursed, http://philpringle.com/BlogRetrieve.aspx?BlogID=5391&PostID=95332, 01/11/2009.
Pringle said about cursing,
“Yet from the days of your fathers You have gone away from My ordinances and have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return to you,” says the LORD of hosts. “But you said, ‘In what way shall we return?’ Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, ‘In what way have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings.” (Malachi 3:7-8)
To be right with God financially means to pay our tithes and give offerings to God-not just offerings and not just tithes, but both, as the Scripture above indicates. Tithes belong to God. If we are found with them in our hands, we are considered to be robbing from God. We cannot expect a financial breakthrough in our lives if we are stealing from God or withholding from Him what He has requested from us.
In 2 Thessalonians 3:11, Paul calls people who don’t work, “disorderly.” He says these people should get a job so they will have something to give. Some people will say, “I’m no thief,” yet they don’t tithe. Withholding from God places them among the very worst of thieves-those who take from God Himself! If we are not tithing, then we are stealing from God and from His house. Plain and simple.
The church is not an “organization,” it is a congregation of the people of God. If we as a body fail to bring the tithes and offerings, which belong to God, then as a church we are not right with Him. Once we have gotten right with God in this area, the curse brought on by withholding the tithe will be removed.
We must never be found to be withholding from God. Everyone must play a part in bringing the incredible financial breakthrough God intends to bring to His church. The breakthrough in the church begins in our spirits. When we break free from holding back the tithe, we will cause a breakthrough in the heavens over our lives so that such blessings will begin to fall upon us all that we won’t be able to contain them!
“And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,” says the Lord of hosts. (Malachi 3:11)” - Phil Pringle, Keys To Financial Excellence, 2005, pg. 76-77.
We will end with this scripture,
“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.” - James 4:8
