Here is a letter from Paula’s son to Shai Linne. It’s in response to Shai Linne’s song, “False Teacher.”

Dear Shai Linne,

My attention was recently brought to your new single “Fal$e Teacher$” in which you say, “Paula White is a false teacher”.

This rhetoric is not new to me; I have heard it since I was a child. It is commonplace in our lives to be called “heretics”, “false teachers”, and “wolves”. Although “wolf” is vicious, it is still better than the oft heard cries of “whore”, “daughter of Babylon”,

and “servants of Satan” that so often come from the mouths of our ‘Christian’ brothers and sisters.

My interest in this is because I am Paula White’s son. I also manage her ministry Paula White Ministries. One would think that hearing these accusations all my life would make me numb to their stings… but that is not the case. After all, it is my mother. This is the woman who birthed me, nurtured me, raised me to love Jesus, prayed for me when I didn’t, and patiently led me when I finally embraced the truth of His loving sacrifice. So when I hear a fellow Christian leader, whom has never had a conversation with me or my mother, call her a “Fal$e Teacher” I wonder what “Fal$e Teaching$” I myself have been inculcated with since I, more than anyone else on the face of the earth, have been most exposed to her teachings.

Is it the love of money? Working well over 40 hours a week for a yearly salary of $44,200 is not a bad living, and I am thankful that I have the ability to take care of my wife and myself. However, it is far from greed. My position in any other company would offer me well over 6 figures a year. Yet I am not taking up offers or knocking on doors. I forego money for the opportunity to work for a ministry that I believe in, a ministry that I witness daily changing lives across the globe. Including and especially the continent of Africa you gave a shout out too.

Is it false doctrine? I love Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who atoned for my sins. I worship the Trinitarian Godhead with all my heart, all my soul, all my strength, and all my mind. I believe it is my responsibility to teach the world the beautiful truth that Jesus Christ is God and that he has given us the opportunity to be in eternal fellowship with the Creator of the Universe.  Undeserved Grace through Faith saves me.

Am I a heretic? My mother taught me these things. These are things she teaches whenever she speaks.  Where is her heresy? Where are her “Fal$e Teaching$”?

I pray you re-evaluate your stance. As of now, you are not operating according to the guidance of Matthew 7:16. You instead are falling into the trap that Titus 3:10-11 and Romans 16:17 warns us against.

Rapper Shai Linne has in turn responded to Brad Knights letter.

I know you love your mother, Brad. I love mine as well. I made Fal$e Teacher$ because there are many other sons out there whose mothers have had their lives greatly damaged by the false teachings of Paula White and the others mentioned in the song. I would love to hear that Paula White has repented and renounced the many false things that she has taught. I am praying to that end. But until she does that, I must soberly maintain that the Biblical category of “False Teacher” does, in fact, apply her. And those who follow her must be warned. And just so you know, I have your email address and will gladly take this conversation offline with you if you’d like.

grace and peace, shai

My comment:

Any teacher who sits down and preaches that you have to sow a seed (give money) for Jesus to bless you, is a lying wolf.

1 Timothy 6:10

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

I completely agree with Shai, and all that he has said. And I thank him for making us even more aware of this. May Jesus continue to guide and bless Shai. These false teachers need to be closely looked at, for many have fallen under their trap.

Matthew 7:15

Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but  inwardly they are ferocious wolves.

Paula White says and I quote: “When you sow the seed of your first fruits, you will reap God’s power and favor in your life. You have the power to release His blessings today by dedicating your first fruits to Him. Change the course of your entire year, perhaps your life today.”

That is a complete and utter fabrication. You have never needed to give anyone money to reach to out to God. Never! Jesus offers you the FREE GIFT OF SALVATION.

Ephesians 2:8

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this is not from  yourselves, it is the gift of God

I notice Brad (Paula’s son) never mentions what his mother teachers, but instead compares his life, and tries to defend his mom. He makes comparisons in the Bible, claiming that Shai is falling under the Titus 3:10-11 trap. And even when all is said and done, Brad still can’t see that his mother telling someone they must give, to be blessed is hugely wrong. I do pray that both Brad and Paula can see this soon, for when Christ comes with great power and Glory, he will be separating the sheep’s from the goats (Matthew 25-31:46).

  1. 1Tim 6:10 states “For the LOVE (upper case is mine) of money is a root of all kinds of evils..”
    Money in itself is not evil but it is a tool to be used (in this case) to pay for TV time, travel and living expenses etc. that an evangelist would incur in the course of spreading the Gospel of Christ.

    According to the Apostle Paul:
    1 Cor 9: 11 “If we have sown spiritual things among you, is it too much if we reap material things from you?”
    1 Cor 9: 14 “In the same way, the Lord commanded that those who proclaim the gospel should get their living by the gospel.”

    What Paula White does with the material compensation and how she manages it is a whole different matter – similar to sowing your tithes and offerings into your local church. You have done your part and you trust that your church will do it’s part in utilizing the funds wisely.
    Mal 3: 10 “Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house..”

    I’m thinking that some people just
    can NOT face the truth; therefore,
    lies are invented so need to be refuted and corrected this error causing many damage in the Church by Wof gurus

  3. Ivar,

    I am glad you are covering this subject because it is a poisen that has been injected into the body of Christ along with the one that says “you have to live up to a certain standard in order to be saved”.

    2 Corinthians 9:7 “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” …

    Tithing was part of the old covenant. As are the promises that went with it. It is not a part of the new covenant in Jesus Christ.

    This “sowing seeds” doctrine is false. It’s another attempt to lead God’s people to believe they have to buy what God has aready freely given.

    We are saved by a free gift, and we are provided for by God who gives freely. Nothing can be bought. And it offends God when we try to buy.

    Acts 8:20 Peter answered: “May your money perish with you, because you thought you could buy the gift of God with money! …

    Salvation and all provisions and blessings are given to us as an undeserved free gift. Our response should be out of love and gratitude. Not an attempt to earn or buy what God has already given us in Christ.

    1. Shalom

      Indeed those folks who teach and spread damnable and destructive heresy they need to be refuted they deceiving and robing people they money

  4. If you are claiming that Jesus never said “give and you will receive” or “you will reap what you sow” or thinking in your heart that we don’t have to tithe are mislead. A tithe is only the starting point to what should be a life if giving.
    God loves a cheerfull giver.
    It’s ALL His anyways.
    Where your treasure is your heart will be also.
    The local church and TV ministries that are doing the gospel need funding to continue the work. And yes God does provide,but he uses people(that are willing to sow) to do so. And last I checked He is doing a great job even without you (if you are not a giver)He will continue to do so until His return. You can be a part of it, or sit on the sidelines and watch it continue on without your help,
    and in that day if you make it into his kingdom you will wonder what your reward is.
    Salvation is free for us (but it cost God dearly) you don’t pay,buy or earn your way in. But your life should be full of giving in many ways time,talent and money.
    Look at your calendar and your checkbook and you will see where your heart truly is.
