Linne names preachers like ike Joel Osteen, T.D. Jakes, Paula White and Benny Hinn in his new song “Fal$e Teacher$,”. He also explains why he chose to name names despite knowing it was “dangerous.”

“There’s always a danger in naming names,” agreed Linne, talking with Russell Moore, Dean of the School of Theology and Senior Vice President for Academic Administration at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Moore hosted Linne for his weekly podcast “The Cross & the Jukebox” on Friday, where they talked about the song on the rapper’s upcoming album titled, Lyrical Theology Part I.

“Had I only mentioned the teaching and not particular teachers, there would still be the possibility of agreeing with the song but assuming that this does not apply to these particular people,” Linne said, and added that he made efforts to be accurate and not to falsely label people.

Jesus said in Matthew 7:15, “Beware of the false prophets…,” Linne continued. We need to be aware of actual people, and “there’s Biblical precedence for naming names,” he said, adding he had watched the “prosperity gospel” teachers over and over again, and heard their teachings back to back.

My Comment:

I think Mr. Shai Linne did a good thing.

Bringing awareness to people about the wolves in sheep’s clothing is a great thing. Think about it. There are millions of people who sit down and listen to these false preachers, who distort the Word of God. And yes, they may speak the truth on “some” occasions, but I most guarantee having listened and read from these false teachers, that on the other occasions, their twisting the Lord’s Word to suit their own selfish need.

2 Timothy 4:3-4

For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.

It is the truth that we are living in the last days. And these false teachers, wolves in sheep’s clothing, liars are coming out of the wood work.

1 Timothy 4:1

Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons,

There are quite a few out there who will defend these teachers, and say we are judging. But your simply wrong. For the Word of God says:

1 John 4:1

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.

We must stand firm. Test. Put on the armor of God, and compare what these preachers preach to the Word of Jesus.

Ephesians 6:17

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,

    1. Dear supajohnny

      Shalom, and thanks for this comment.

      Sometimes, false teachers are not easy to discern. But often their folly is obvious. Every Christian must take a stand against the Prosperity gospel. Preachers of this money making ideology is perverting the truth.

  1. A friend of my son’s recently began attending a United Pentecostal Church (UPCI). This is a “Jesus Only”/Oneness church and extremely cultish we found out.Please join us in praying for this boy who refuses to believe that this church is not a true Christian church.

    God bless

  2. Shalom


    A wonderful post refuting the so called false teachers of prosperity theology actually Shai Linne did a wonderful work on his song because people are being deceived to follow this teaching

  3. Please can somebody kindly tell me the errors of jakes and co? Am surprised, although i haven’t heard their sermon’s before, yet i know them ‘cos they are popular pentecostal ministers.

    1. Chika,

      TD Jakes is not pentecostal. He preaches at his church, which he says his non-denominational.

      Why is TD Jakes a prosperity teacher? He’s famous for his sow a seed, and god would bless you teaching. That is a lie.

      Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

      God’s gift to us is FREE.

      1. Shalom

        Indeed he is a false teacher too and others like Copelands our African brothers have been decieved by this damnable heresy

        Ecclesiastes 1
        Humanity has had “itching ears”
        since the beginning of time. It does
        seem much worse these days
        By the world’s standards, And prosperity teachers Paul and
        John the Baptist would not be
        considered “successful”. John the
        Baptist wore animal skins and ate
        wild honey – pretty weird stuff. Paul
        survived numerous shipwrecks and
        prison stays.
        But they did God’s will – they served
        God with distinction. That is what
        we are called to do, regardless of the
        circumstances we find ourselves in

      3. Amen Tiva.

        I agree with all that you said, including the fact that it is worse now. Definitely has to do with the fact that we are even more closer to Jesus coming.

        God Bless

  4. Hi Gloria, In agrrements to what you are saying. But my question after watching the video of this rapper would be. Jesus said we would know the false teachers by the fruits of their actions. Has anybody actulely studied where their prosperity of wealth(God’s) they are making is going? Are they useing the 10% of earnings to exspand God’s kingdom? Or are they hourding the 100% I am in agreement of what he was saying about their mindset is that God is only for us and we are not here for God. Thats wrong. And He is not some jeanie in a bottle that we rub only when we need Him. We are here for His glory wheather He answers our prayers the way we want Him to or not. Their guilt tithing is wrong as well as their actions with God’s money if they are not being obediant in God’s will on how they spend it. Either way we all will stand before Him and have to answer to our actions.

    1. Hello dblwin,

      You said: Has anybody actulely studied where their prosperity of wealth(God’s) they are making is going? Are they useing the 10% of earnings to exspand God’s kingdom? Or are they hourding the 100%

      My comment: No one will accurately know how much these preachers make, unless we get access into their bank accounts. Though there wealth is pretty obvious in the homes they live, or what they have purchased.

      But in restrospect, even if a poor man preaches to me “you must sow a seed, to be blessed” , I would have a problem with that.

      Unfortuantely, too many in this world give these teachers money, waiting to be blessed.

      Romans 6:23 proves these false prosperity teachers are all liars.

    1. Benny Hinn owns his own airplane, million dollar homes, and such and pleads for people to give to his ministry so God can bless them.

      Paula White has said and I quote: “When you sow the seed of your first fruits . . . you will reap God’s power and favor in your life.”

      Jesus Christ says: His salvation is a free gift.

      Out of the above, it’s Jesus I’ll go with.
