You’ve got to love some serious ego. Now preacher Paula White is claiming to make the ground she walks on Holy.
This would utterly ridiculous except… Paula White until very recently lead a mega-Church in Florida called New Destiny Christian Center. And she is the leading Spiritual Advisor to the President of the United States. And she is claiming to make the very ground she walks on… holy.
Holiness is a characteristic unique to God himself. God can impart HIS holiness on us which he does through Christ, but we cannot impart that holiness on anyone or anything else. Thus any claim to impart holiness is a claim to be God himself. In the old days, we’d call any such claim blasphemy. And I don’t mean that is a societal or figurative senses, its blasphemy in a literal senses. Paula White is claiming be equal to God and that is really kind of scary.
Who will be deceived by these shenanigans? Does anyone really care? God’s holiness is serious matter, and it cannot be trivialized. As Jesus said “”Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good–except God alone.” Mark 10:18.
Devout Christians take seriously any claims to be Good or to be Holy, they are not words to be tossed carelessly around. Paula White has placed herself and her followers in grave spiritual danger.
