As it does so, it offers a simplistic path to upward mobility through “claiming” God’s promises for health and wealth or through planting “seed” money, usually in the ministry of one of the prosperity preachers.The end result is what the apostles warned us about as early as the first century: predatory teachers who use a veneer of the Scriptures to prey on desperate people for their money or for sex, or for both (2 Timothy 3:1–9).That’s how I felt a few weeks ago when John Perkins, the revered preacher and civil rights activist, brought up prosperity-gospel pastor Creflo Dollar during a live interview I was conducting with Perkins at a summit on racial reconciliation.Perkins lamented that there are so few accredited African-American evangelical schools in the United States while at the same time Dollar is asking for money for a million dollar private jet. The more I’ve thought of that over the past few weeks, the more I’m convinced that Perkins is right.Once our relationship with God has been restored, we are called into his service: “[God] reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.…We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us” (2 Corinthians , 20).Russell Moore is the President of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, the moral concerns and public policy entity of the nation’s largest Protestant denomination.According to TMZ, Christina has been dating the family contractor Gary Anderson, while Tarek had a brief fling with their former nanny Alyssa Logan.Collins English Dictionary - Complete & Unabridged 2012 Digital Edition © William Collins Sons & Co. 1979, 1986 © Harper Collins Publishers 1998, 2000, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2012 Cite This Source "make friendly" (see conciliate).

According to the site, the mom of two — she shares daughter Taylor, 6, and son Brayden, 15 months, with Tarek — is remaining friendly with her ex solely for the sake of their children.
“We had an unfortunate misunderstanding about six months ago and the police were called to our house in an abundance of caution. We chose to get counseling to sort out our relationship.
Together, we have decided to separate while we reevaluate the future of our marriage.”The “unfortunate understanding” the HGTV stars mention seems to be referring to an incident that occurred back in May, when the Orange County Sheriff’s Department came to the couple’s home in response to a call about a “possibly suicidal male with a gun.”One of Christina’s pals told police she saw Tarek take a gun from his safe before walking out into the woods, but he claimed he was only carrying the weapon with him to protect himself from “mountain lions and rattlesnakes.” Since calling it quits, the TV personalities have been seeing other people.
