Who is Trump’s spiritual advisor in the White House?  Give her $229 in order to receive “prophetic instruction.”

Why $229?  “In order to receive White’s instructions on defeating enemies, the televangelist asks followers to pay $229, which she says is “in accordance with” 1 Chronicles 22:9 in the Bible. The verse speaks about peace and rest from enemies.”

President Donald Trump’s personal pastor and spiritual advisor Paula White is asking followers to give her $229 in order to receive “prophetic instruction” on how to defeat the enemies in their lives this November.

Though she rejects the label, televangelist Paula White is part of the prosperity gospel movement, which goes by many names: “Name it and claim it.” “Health and wealth.” “Word of faith.” “Seed faith.” Even just “faith.” What these titles to varying degrees reveal and obscure is the transactional nature of this scam at the fringes of Christianity. God wants to give you money, good health, and happiness, the prosperity gospel preacher says, but you’ve gotta work with him a little first. You have to demonstrate the sincerity of your faith — do for him before he’ll do for you — and as it turns out, a really great demonstration of faith is sending a check to this very preacher, who just happens to be in the market for a new personal plane.

White also happens to be the latest Trump administration hire, reportedly brought on to advise on the White House’s Faith and Opportunity Initiative. This is exactly right. A shameless religious grifter is a perfect fit for this presidency, an administration built on giving desperate people false hope for personal gain . . .

The faces of these offers are people like White: shiny, rich, happy, and now officially ensconced in the halls of power. “Your FIRST FRUITS Offering for 2019” — namely, a donation to White’s organization (I refuse to call it a “ministry”), preferably of $75 or more — “WILL release you from your past and align your future for [God’s] blessing!” a page on her website claims. “I am decreeing and declaring 2019 will become a year of supernatural recovery and advancement, and I am agreeing with you now that with God all things are possible.” Sure, that $75 should probably go to rent, but White’s got a whole slew of context-free Bible verses she’s presenting as an ironclad contract with God to expand your bank account, if only you’ll expand hers first. (She has also promised donations will result in God harming your enemies and assigning you an angel.)

Surely she doesn’t mean harming Trump’s enemies of the people?

Do you think Trump has an intern in the Oval Office to block Paula’s metaphor, or a kind of witches’ flypaper hanging from the ceiling to catch them before he tweets them?

You mean at the core of most religions?
