From a Hedge reader:
I unfortunately spent $60 for my wife and I to attend Katie Souza’s Denver show and production. What an awakening! We have never before witnessed such a sham, scam and travesty. It was BLATANTLY and shamelessly ALL about the money. She and the sponsoring pastor did nothing to conceal the fact.
The saddest part was the people that were hurting the most gave the most money in desperation, as I said, a travesty.
My first inclination was with all the hypnotic music, dancing, jumping around and “praising” going on for hours is there was no sign of the Spirit being present at all.
Second, was the rapid fire mention of certain scripture verses such as “John 5″ and “Luke 6″ and her ” interpretations” spoken too quickly for anyone to write them down. When we returned and looked up what we could, we found the verses were twisted to achieve her agenda- raising money. One example was Luke 19:8. She compared Zaccheus and his extra extortion of tax payments to our lack of tithing that has been cheating God. That is why our finances are cursed- because we “ate our seed”. We were therefore to “repent and pray asking the Holy Spirit if we should bring forth an atoning tithe.” Immediately, staff appeared everywhere with offering envelopes and the people who gave money got to parade around the room and meet Katie and receive her blessing.
She also singled out all the people who were her monthly partners in sending money and how they currently received the most special blessings. And that is not all. She is starting a monthly program where they can travel to Arizona and have a free lunch with her and her staff. That will be one of the more expensive ” free lunches” available.
I will watch the shearing of my alpacas in a few months, but last night I got to witness a big fleecing of the flock.
I urge everyone to avoid this two bit, bush league charlatan.
