Cindy Jacobs, the self-proclaimed prophet and co-founder of Generals International, has claimed to turn metal into bone, help someone grow three inches instantaneously, and stop a typhoon. But her latest comments may raise more eyebrows than ever before.
In a sermon she delivered at a church in New Jersey last month, Jacobs preached the Prosperity Gospel and urged Christians to get rich. There’s a reason for that. If they become wealthy, Jews will look at them and convert immediately.
“I want to say to you,” she continued, “that one of the things I believe that’s going to bring a great harvest of Jews is the Christians becoming so profoundly wealthy … that it’s going to make them jealous. The wealth and the riches that we’re able to obtain is going to make them jealous.”
“Do you think our poverty is going to make a Jew jealous?” she asked. “Come off it! No, we are meant to prosper. Why? Because they understand, in their culture, that obedience to God brings blessing.”
Got that, Jews? You hate being poor, don’t you? Don’t worry. One day, you’ll see Christians getting rich because they love Jesus and you’ll fix yourselves.
If anyone else talked about Christians the way Jacobs talks about Jews, you can bet Religious Right groups would be calling it hate speech.
