Paula White, a prosperity gospel minister who serves as President Donald Trump’s “spiritual adviser,” is apparently encouraging her followers to live in the dark if necessary to keep the lights on at her church.
According to a report by Mother Jones, White recently told followers during a sermon at her Supernatural Ministry School in Miami that they could earn God’s favor by sending her church as much money as possible — even if that meant they should skip paying their monthly electric bills.
White reportedly told parishioners, “Instead of writing [that check] to the house of God as I’m instructed to, then what I’m saying spiritually is, ‘FPL (Florida Power and Light), I have now established a spiritual law that put you first.’ So, FPL, save my family, FPL, deliver my drug-addicted son.”
“FPL, kill this cancer that doctors say is in my body,” she added.
At a Trump rally last June, White prayed for “every demonic network who has aligned itself against the purpose, against the calling of President Trump, let it be broken, let it be torn down in the name of Jesus!”
She made headlines last month when she prayed for “satanic pregnancies to miscarry.”
“In the name of Jesus, we command all satanic pregnancies to miscarry right now. We declare that anything that’s been conceived in Satanic wombs, that they will miscarry, they will not be able to carry forth any plan of destruction, any plan of harm,” she said.
In January, President Trump gave White an official White House job working in the Office of Public Liaison.
