Does this sound prosperous to you? Jesus said, you cannot serve God and money in Matthew 6:24.
It doesn’t appear his apostles were very prosperous either. Prosperity pastors teach a false gospel.
We are not, as so many, corrupting the word of God which is found in 2nd Corinthians 2:17. The word corrupting means making merchandise out of you. If you will recall Jesus chased the money-changers out of the Temple with a whip of cords. That would have been the prosperity preachers of today.
As The Indianapolis church grows So does the influence of the self Ordained Apostle and Teacher.His income also grows enabling him to Pursue his love of golf And it’s resulting 18 holies. He firmly believe that God is sending him Messages by way of rainbows. A Rainbow to Mike Peters Has become a sign for church planting. That led he and his Congregation From Vermont to Indiana. They all live in a commune on the north west side of Indianapolis. His latest Rainbow has led him to Columbus Ohio where he also plans to build a church. It’s a little Surprising that he has not named his church rainbow. His church has split Families apart. He counsels the woman to leave the husband. The man has absolute authority in his group which is the supreme mark of a cult. People should avoid this man like the plague.
This is Pastor Mike Peters of the Indianapolis Church who spends the majority of his time writing books, making tapes, and playing golf. He is the type of Pastor who if he hears a child crying during his sermon will walk out to the congregation and rebuke the child in the presence of all. If necessary he will paddle the bottom of the child in the presence of all with no one confronting him. I have seen him rebuke a woman in front of all to the point of Tears. To say that he has the autonomy of that service is most correct. He knows his Bible front and back and how to use it to his advantage in his congregation. They meet from house to house and on occasion rent a portion of the Indianapolis Zoo for their services which under the circumstances is quite appropriate. He allows no one to challenge him as his authority is supreme. I have seen him separate couples. To say that he has cultic tendencies is an understatement. I have made many attempts to contact him but he will not do interviews. What he will do is ask you to read his books or direct you to his website to purchase them. Most of the people in his congregation live extremely close to where he lives. Once the Indianapolis monthly publication went to his home to interview him. The street was full of people until he got out of his car and went to the door. He looked behind him and suddenly the street was deserted. He probably thought he was in the Twilight Zone. Peters would not answer the door. This is the type of Pastor that literally owns his congregation. And needless to say it is a very dangerous cult. If anyone knows more about him please leave us a comment.
