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
You can also read Shai’s letter HERE.
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.
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.
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).
