|The Church of Jezebel
Hijacking the Gospel
|The Church of Jezebel is a Christian suspense novel depicting the cult and counterfeit
side of some churches and televangelists. This book unveils some false doctrines and
manipulative techniques that often result in misplaced faith and spiritual abuse.

The Church of Jezebel, Hijacking the Gospel, weaves a
fictional suspense mystery that not only exposes false doctrines,
spiritual pride, misplaced faith and religious abuse but also
enlightens readers through Scriptures from the Bible.
This church has its own "trinity." It sells people the hope of
receiving tremendous financial wealth, super-natural power and
miracles, which is more self-centered than Christ-centered.
The Jezebel church has four major doctrines: 1) God needs us
as much as we need Him, 2) by faith you will command both
blessings and curses, 3) by faith your divine seed will grow to
become as God, and 4) the members of this church will have
dominion over the entire earth.
The main character of the story is Christina, age eighteen, who
is excited about being admitted to Bible college. Although she is
easily awed by the self-serving and charismatic power of the
doctrinal messages and prophesies, there is an unmistakable
sense of alarm from the first page.
Christina's roommate, Becky, is dating the pastor's son and
becomes pregnant. A few weeks later the college announces
that Becky committed suicide. However, a no-nonsense
detective informs Christina that Becky was murdered and that
Christina is a suspect in Becky's brutal death. Christina's
journey is fraught with twists and turns but she eventually
succumbs to the Jezebel spirit only to find that it almost destroys
her and her faith.
The gripping and gritty novel moves towards a missions trip to
Haiti, where everything is not what it seems, and concludes in an
ultimate confrontation that shakes the highest levels of this toxic
mega-church and Bible college.
The Church of Jezebel cites appropriate Scripture and
examines the Jezebel spirit, apostate church, false prophets,
word-faith doctrine, faith healers, seed-faith giving, prosperity
gospel, Christ-consciousness and other beliefs that are
promoted today by many popular televangelists, Christian TV
stations, churches and cults.

they get ‘goose bumps’ or it ‘tickles their ears’ then all the better.
This church, and others like it, is built on the trilogy of financial
prosperity, super natural power and miracles. This 'trinity' is
man- centered and not Christ-centered. People hear the words
'prosperity, power and miracles' and it ‘tickles their ears.’”---
