The Greek word for Jezebel means a false teacher. Much has been written on the Jezebel spirit as it applies to individuals but what if a church builds its entire doctrine on it? 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 Church of Jezebel, Hijacking the Gospel 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 spiritual abuse, misplaced faith, and spiritual pride.

This 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) its leaders will have dominion and power over the entire earth.

The Church of Jezebel not only exposes spiritual/religious pride, false doctrines and spiritual abuse among its leaders but also enlightens readers through Scriptures from the Bible. The main character of the story is Christina, an eighteen-year-old who is excited about being admitted to Bible college. Although she is easily awed by the charismatic doctrinal and prophetic messages, there is an unmistakable sense of foreboding from the first page. Christina's college roommate is dating the pastor's son and becomes pregnant. Weeks later the Bible college announces that Christina's roommate committed suicide but a detective assigned to the death is convinced it was murder.

The gripping and gritty novel travels to Haiti on a missions' trip, where nothing is what it appears, and concludes with a surprise ending that shakes the highest levels of this mega-church, Bible college and Christian media empire.

The Church of Jezebel cites appropriate Scripture and examines the Jezebel spirit, prosperity gospel, false prophets, word-faith doctrine, the apostate church, faith healers, seed-faith giving, Christ-consciousness and other beliefs that are sold today by many popular televangelists and churches.
