I do not know why people keep leaving their comments in defense of Choo Thomas. I have said over and over, I will not allow it and have deleted dozens if not hundreds of comments from those who ignore what has already been exposed here, not only through this blog, but the many Christians who leave their own comments of discernment. However, I keep receiving them and I keep deleting them. As I have said, there is enough evidence to show she is wrong, and that either she was delusional or a liar.
I am amazed at those who call themselves Christian who are so afraid to test anything, lest they “touch God’s anointed” . It is highly superstitious and breeds fear. You may as well carry a rabbit’s foot with you. The following is one comment that I will address because there are many Christians out there who believe that if someone calls themselves a prophet, it must make them one. But no.
i believe strongly n cho nam’s heaven is so real because when i read it my spiritual eyes opened and i saw heaven myself. All what she described i saw personally i am also a prophet. She is an end time prophet. Where disobedient believers will go the desert is symbolic of hell. Dont misunderstand her please. Jesus said every little title of the law must be fulfilled. He didnt come to abolish the law. Tithing is part of it. Continue to tithe. Where else do you expect pastors to feed their families?
This person said she believes because her “spiritual eyes opened”. To which, I would ask, how does she know? What is the one thing she uses as her plumb line to measure if something is true or not? A feel good feeling, goose bumps, etc.? She wants us to just take her word for it when she says she saw heaven, also, after all, her spiritual eyes opened. She calls herself a prophet, which in her mind, puts her on the same level with Choo Thomas. Therefore, she assumes that will be cause enough for anyone else to believe she is a prophet.
My answer to the question of how pastors are to feed their families: The same as everybody else. By working. By not depending upon the hard earned income of their sheep. Paul was a tent maker and made himself no burden. Tithes were never meant to go to the pastor. If you want to bless someone financially, that is your right. But you are not obligated. Anyone who makes you feel you are, is a lying thieve or ignorant. https://redeemedhippiesplace.wordpress.com/2011/07/26/is-it-biblical-to-tithe/
She said, “He didnt come to abolish the law. Tithing is part of it.” Too which I say, the following shows exactly what is the fulfillment of the law:
For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. — Romans 13:9-11 —
No mention of tithing there.
But when the Pharisees heard that He had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together. Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying, “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”
Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” — Matthew 22:34-40 —
No mention of tithing there, either. Seems to me, love is the most important thing.
I close with this:
If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,
And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;
Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the Lord your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
Ye shall walk after the Lord your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. — Deuteronomy 13:1-4 —
