Millionaires need to take our churches back so America can dream again according to a Facebook post from Michael Chitwood the lead person of a ministry called Potential Church.

Chitwood directs us to look to riches as a reason for hope. Scripture directs us away from hoping in riches.

1As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. 1 Timothy 6:17 ESV

Scripture also says those viewing godliness as a means of gain have a depraved mind and are deprived of the truth.

Teach and urge these things. If anyone teaches a different doctrine and does not agree with the sound[b] words of our Lord Jesus Christ and the teaching that accords with godliness, he is puffed up with conceit and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy craving for controversy and for quarrels about words, which produce envy, dissension, slander, evil suspicions, and constant friction among people who are depraved in mind and deprived of the truth, imagining that godliness is a means of gain. But godliness with contentment is great gain, for we brought nothing into the world, and[c] we cannot take anything out of the world.But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs. 1 Timothy 6:2-10 ESV

People like Chitwood need to call upon God and ask God to grant them repentance so they trust in what Jesus did for them, and not in riches.

If you believe in teachings like Chitwood’s please understand it’s not biblical, but is rather worldly and depraved. I used to believe in this nonsense too, but God was gracious enough to open my eyes to the truth and grant repentance. Call upon God, he’s more than willing to forgive and change your mind and heart too.
