This lady has been all over the television lately. I don’t know much about her teachings except that she seems sure that God wants me to send her 54 dollars a month for a year.
Paula White was raised in a small town called Tupelo, Mississippi. Until the age of 5, her life was what most people would consider typical, including a loving family and stable home life. At the age of five, Paula’s little world was thrown into a tailspin when her father committed suicide. The sudden loss of her father affected Paula’s entire family. While her family tried to cope with the loss and disappointment, Paula’s cries for love were muffled by years of sexual and physical abuse from the ages of 6 to 13.
At the age of eighteen, Paula was introduced to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Shortly thereafter, Paula began ministering in the inner cities of the Washington, DC area. By the early nineties, she was in post-riot Los Angeles, teaching Jesus to children whose neighborhoods had been hardest hit by violence.
Shortly thereafter? Is there an express line at Protestant theological schools these days?
