  • Absolutely nothing, she has no impact on my life one way or another. Atheism is nice that way.

  • I can listen to her for awhile; until she starts talking about herself; her experiences, her family, her life, her decisions. Then I turn the channel.

  • She preaches prosperity theology. A belief that if wealth is a sign of God's love of you. Which obviously means that if you are poor, God doesn't like you much.

  • adnilm do you listen to her? I listen to her every day and I have never gotten that from her . the main message i hear her say is Your thoughts affect your moods. you can chose to be postive. she has even told stories of being on a budget and living in a one bedroom with her kids. she is honest and her preaching has brought me much closer god and christ

  • Yup, I've listened to her. And her theology is wrong. She's a motivational speaker, not a woman of God. She teaches that Jesus was tortured in hell after crucifiction and that that is what is the source of our salvation

  • She teaches success as a monetary number, not a heavenly one.
    Paraphrasing St Thomas Aquinas,
    the good person who is deprived of material goods is actually being rewarded, since that deprivation opens him more and more to the spiritual dimension; and perhaps the wicked person who has every worldly benefit is actually being punished, since those material preoccupations close him to the only good that finally matters.'
