Mike Murdock

Mike Murdock is the founder and Senior Pastor of 'The Wisdom Center' in Ft. Worth, Texas.

In its 'About Dr. Mike Murdock' section, the church's website states that "Dr. Mike Murdock is in tremendous demand as one of the most dynamic speakers in America today."

Among other things, we learn that Mike Murdock is the "[n]oted author of 160 books, including the best sellers, "Wisdom for Winning", "Dream-Seeds", "The Double Diamond Principle", "Secrets of the Richest Man Who Ever Lived", "The Law of Recognition", and "The Leadership Secrets of Jesus.""

Murdock has a weekly television program called "Wisdom Keys with Mike Murdock."

Controversial Teachings

Mike Murdock is controversial for his overemphasis on money. He preaches 'seed-faith theology' - the Word-Faith teaching which claims that for someone to receive anything at all from God, her or she must first donate money, known as a seed-faith offering. (If this ploy truly works, Mike would be sending you money; not the other way around).
