Like I’m willing to bet most African kids were, I was brought up listening to ‘Premier Christian Radio’. It was in the mid 90s I was exposed to Billy Graham, Dr James Dobson, Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson. As the noughties rolled in I became aware of Creflo Dollar (what a fitting last name) and Matthew Ashimilowo. Were you brought up listening to these ministers and if so what are your thoughts on them? Pat Robertson is a billionaire, Creflo Dollar is a millionaire as is Matthew Ashimilowo. They all believe in prosperity theology. It is my understanding that Graham is the only one not living in a mansion, which I find very hard to believe. Is there evidence for prosperity theology in the Bible ♥

Before the 1500s everyone in Europe was a #Catholic, bar the people practising native religions, correct? Some people left #Catholicism and followed Martin Luther to Lutheranism but the biggest split came when Henry VIII wanted a divorce which caused Anglicanism to be born. If the Catholic Church and Church of England only split due to Harry wanting a divorce and not for any severe doctrinal difference what changed along the way? Why do we have such different views on contraception, the marriage of clergy members, Saints and penance ♥

Lucifer thought he could do better than God so God ordered Archangel Michael to bounce Lucifer out of heaven and Lucifer became Satan, correct? Which leads to these questions; what Bible verse is this in? I’m guessing somewhere in Genesis. And did Lucifer create hell or did God? How did they organise heaven and hell for good and evil respectively if Lucifer hated God ♥
