Having the Courage of One's Convictions

Lee Grady is the editor of Charisma Magazine. In his December editorial he wrote an excellent article on The Nativity movie. He writes:

"Unfortunately in today's church many of us have adopted Harod's values. We are impressed by fame, wealth and sophistication. We think God likes grand entrances, entourages and red carpets. We've been seduced by our celebrity-obsessed culture. Some misguided ministers have even reinvented the Christmas story to fit their self-centered theology.
"One prominent television preacher told an Atlanta newspaper recently that Jesus was actually very wealthy, and that He got much of His treasure from the magi when they visited Him as a Child." (J. Lee Grady, Charisma Magazine, December 2006, p. 6)
That preacher was Creflo Dollar in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on October 22, 2006. So, I browse through the rest of the magazine and what do I see on pages 46 and 47? - Two full-page ads for a new book by Creflo Dollar and a Creflo Dollar convention!

Lee, if you believe what you write, why do you keep promoting Dollar and other similar teachers on virtually every page of the magazine?

This is typical confused Charismania. I have been through pentecostal preaching where the preacher decries the Copeland health and wealth gospel yet in the same sermon he would be promoting the same thing but with slightly different words. It is confused theology because it straddles with subjectivity and uses it to determine truth
