Christian Millionaires aren’t born they’re made.
But if you are diametrically opposed to being a Christian millionaire…good news you don’t have to be!
If fact, I’m going to teach you HOW NOT to be one.
Why? It’s not worth it!
This is based on hours of research of Christian millionaires (and billionaires). This is the exact opposite of what these people have done. If you don’t want to be one of “those people” follow this to the letter.
So here they are:
1. Don’t You Dare Believe in God’s Son
The best way to NOT be a Christian millionaire is to not believe in Christ. Throw that Bible away immediately!
You do not need any of these preachers telling you that Jesus is the only way to God. Forget what Jesus Himself said,
“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6 NIV)
Yes, you can be a millionaire without Christ. You CAN have fabulous wealth apart from God.
And yes even though these millionaires battle depression and don’t have the assurance or help that comes from knowing Christ…rest assured you don’t have to be one of those Bible thumpers who know when they die they’ll be with their God.
Again: put that Bible away!
2. Do Not Take His Promises At Face Value
Ok, so you didn’t want to throw away the Bible?
Ok fine. Keep that silly thing, read it if you want to, but whatever you do don’t take it’s Promises at face value.
Especially all those Promises of prosperity.
For example, if you see a Promise like this:
“The Lord your God will make you abound in all the work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your land for good. For the Lord will again rejoice over you for good as He rejoiced over your fathers.” (Deuteronomy 30:9 NKJV)
Don’t do a foolish thing like read it, believe it, study it, and…worst of all…thank Him for it!
No! No! No!
Don’t. Do. That.
Instead what you need to do is look at your bank account, lack of education, past mistakes, failures, flaws, and limitations. Be “realistic.” He obviously took NONE of that into consideration when He said that. That was a different time, era, and people.
That could not be for you.
Your problems are obviously bigger than Him, so why trust Him to fix your problems?
3. Do Not Commit to Lifelong Learning
If you went to school, great!
You don’t need anymore than what they taught you in school. Christian millionaires commit to the ridiculous habit of lifelong learning. They’re always trying to sharpen their skills, learn new skills, or get better at their craft.
Don’t you dare follow that nonsense!
Granted, the average consumer watches 4 hours of TV per day.
Or, 28 hours a week.
Or, 1460 hours a year.
Or, 61 days per year.
And yes the person who watches LESS TV makes more money per capita. Why do you need to be bothered by that nonsense??
Watch your TV, enjoy your shows. Don’t you deserve it? Don’t you work hard enough?
Isn’t Game of Thrones on???
5. Don’t You Dare Start Writing Goals
Christian millionaires are goal setters. They write specific, measurable, and far reaching goals. They have a precise idea of where they are going and what they want.
Don’t be bothered by all of that.
You know what they say: “Que sera, sera” or “whatever will be, will be.”
Enjoy your life. Don’t worry about thinking ahead.
It will all work out in the end.
6. Don’t be Bamboozled By All That “Tithing” Nonsense
There was a Social Capital Community Benchmark Survey — completed in 2000 — of about 30,000 people in more than 40 communities across the U.S.
It measured the giving habits of Americans. They found that people became wealthier when they gave. Christian millionaires and billionaires are givers. They tithe and give offerings. Not when they became wealthy but even before.
But you don’t be duped into this Tom-foolery!
Save your money.
God understands the bills you have to pay, the debts you’ve incurred, and etc. In fact, that “tithing stuff” is all Old Testament gibberish. Not relevant to you at all.
7. If it Gets Hard, Be Prepared To Quit
Let’s say you do make the foolish attempt to “go after your dreams.”
I guarantee you this:
You will have adversity.
It will get hard, you will have doubts, you will run out of money, people will call you crazy, and etc.
You could do what these Christian millionaires did and persist in spite of the adversity. You could tough it out and see your dreams through.
Don’t do it.
It’s a waste of time!
If it was “meant to be” it would’ve been easier. Don’t stress yourself out over it. Don’t fight for it it.
Quit. You heard me: quit.
Something else will come along that will interest you, start again, go after that, and IF THAT gets hard quit again.
8. Don’t Worry About Managing Money Properly
Just in case you didn’t listen to me with suggestion 1 & 2 and are reading the Bible dismiss this entire passage:
“These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the God made the earth and the heavens, And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.” (Genesis 2:4-5 KJV)
Basically, what this “passage” is saying is that God DIDN’T send the rain because there was no man to work the ground. In other words: God didn’t send increase because there was no man (or man-ager).
Apparantly in “His” Eyes: no management, no increase.
Christian millionaires (and billionaires) are people who manage their money.
But you don’t worry about that.
Spend your money, get that credit card, buy that car so everyone thinks you’re rich. You have one life to live…live it up!
9. Don’t Look Into Other Income Streams
Don’t rock the boat!
If you have a job that pays your bills, why would you need more than that?
Don’t be greedy!
These greedy Christian Millionaires (and billionaires) are always looking to create new income streams. Whether it be books, dividends, real estate, or other businesses they are always looking to diversify their earnings.
But not you. You don’t need all that. You don’t need to waste time, strength, and energy towards that. Be satisfied with what you have.
10. Do Not Forgive Other People…Ever!
Tyler Perry was trying to get his play off the ground.
It was called “I Know I’ve Been Changed” and it was a person learning to forgive their abuser.
It was a lesson he hadn’t yet learned. He never forgave his abuser: his father!
in 1998, while struggling to get the play off the ground he finally forgave his father. It was during a heated conversation with his father that everything he was holding onto spilled out. But after the heated exchange Perry told his father, “I forgive you.”
Two weeks later the play took off!
To this day he believes that when he forgave his father that’s when he succeeded:
“Maybe I visited the right churches, maybe I finally got the word out. But until I die, I’ll believe that when I finally forgave my father, the Lord blessed the play.”
As nice as that sounds…everyone is not Tyler Perry!
Some people CANNOT be forgiven. What they said or did can’t be erased with an apology. They hurt you too deeply. Somethings have to carried to the grave.
Believe me: God understands. It’s not like He’s ever had to forgive people who didn’t deserve forgiveness!
Remember what I said: hold onto it and DON’T let it go!!!
(This post was meant to be satirical. DO NOT follow any of this advice lol)
