Talk:Name it and claim it

This sounds like a cartoonishly exaggerated illustration of Marx's "opiate of the masses" idea--don't do anything about your lot in life, just pray and keep sending us checks!--Filby (talk) 03:57, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

The comments regarding Catholic beliefs aren't very well supported. For example, some religious orders do take vows of poverty (such as the Franciscans), but how does that constitute the "inverse" of the "Name it and claim it" beliefs? There are some who have subscribed to Liberation Theology, but the Catholic church has specifically argued against those beliefs. My suggestion would be to just delete this particular section. — Unsigned, by: Shekhinak / talk / contribs (signed by bot) 18:48, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

So, uh[edit]

"name it and claim it" But how exactly? Are they supposed to name it in their prayers? How's it supposed to work? And how does this "name it and claim it" stuff relate to prosperity gospel (basically send money to the church and good stuff will happen to you)? Is that how you're supposed to 'claim' the thing you 'name'? Or is this about how televangelists will publically name something they want (e.g. "a private jet") and claim it through the power of their gullible followers' donations? 142.124.55.236 (talk) 11:31, 24 August 42015 AQD (UTC)

A message from the future?

Can the proponents name and claim each others' property and congregations? Anna Livia (talk) 17:39, 30 January 2018 (UTC)

Why do my edits keep getting overwritten? I’m posting my additions here then and may the Holy Spirit lead all who seek the face of God to where they need to be.[edit]

@AbrillianStar Your edits fundamentally changed the tone of the article, in addition I didn't feel they were within RationalWiki's SPOV. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 14:27, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

I pray against the spiritual cause of the truth being concealed about the “name it claim it” lie the name of Jesus.[edit]

I pray God’s will be done on the internet in the name of Jesus. Let the content of this web page be “first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.” James 3:17 in the name of Jesus. I pray once it is that it be the top search result on the internet in the name of Jesus. — Unsigned, by: AbrillianStar / talk / contribs
