There is a great disconnection with God’s people in church on the weekend and who we are the rest of the week.  It is like we suffer from schizophrenia, we have multiple personalities.  We are one person when we go to church, a different person at work, at home, at social settings, when driving, etcetera.  The Apostle Paul was aware of this predicament in the church at Philippi, “Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling” (Philippians 2:12).  Paul is saying we must be consistent, no matter where we are or who is present.

            God wants us to live a consistent life everyday of our lives.  This book shows how we can accomplish this task on a daily basis.  The author starts off by showing why the disconnections exist in our lives.  He first deals with our human dilemmas, getting us to understand who we are, and some things we don’t have to waste time asking God for.  Then he addresses the ones who are responsible for the disconnections, dealing first with the individual and his contributions.  Like taking responsibility for his actions, utilizing his gifts, not living by bread alone and how not to be covetous. 

Afterwards he moves to the part the church plays in the disconnection.  How the Pastor, religion, traditions, politics, membership help to bring about and sustain the disconnection. 

The final section deals with how can we go about establishing the reconnection and maintaining it so that we can be who God wants us to be twenty four seven. Here he deals with developing long lasting relationships, becoming a disciple of Jesus, understanding and enjoying fellowship as we get involved in ministry.

À propos de l'auteur (2007)

About the Author


After twenty five years of pastoring, teaching, counseling, and conducting Seminars in the Caribbean and America, the Lord called Kennedy Vanterpool to begin Prosperity Ministry in 2003.  The Ministry’s vision is to mend the great disconnection between what is taught in the Bible and what is practiced during the week. 

The Lord again gave him a series of Bible Studies, out of which arose this book.  As God’s people we are disconnected because of a lack of understanding the Bible.  What we hear and what we do are so far removed it creates guilt and misery within.  A vicious cycle is produced and many become discouraged and give up.  Others live below their God given potential. 

He realized that there are many Christians who suffer from schizophrenia.  There are several who contribute to this awful tragedy, including the individual, Pastors, Churches and others.  

Kennedy graduated from Caribbean Union College, as president of his class of 1982.  Then married the beautiful and talented Esther Simmons, from St Lucia, a graduate of West Indies College.  The marriage produced three wonderful children; Kenesha, Kenesky and Kenesma. He attended Indiana State University where he completed a Masters Degree in Counseling in 1991. 

In 1994 He started the family business known as Kenes Company; they provide a wide variety of vending services.

In June 2006 he published his first book, “You are Prosperous Believe it or not!  I Believe My Personal Testimony” by Xulon Press. He deals with understanding prosperity from a Biblical prospective.

Pastor Vanterpool is available to conduct seminars in helping the members enjoy their Christian experience on a daily basis and avoid their disconnections.  You can call him at 281-389-6308, Email or you write to:
