The Prosperity Gospel Revealed

Anyone who knows me, knows of my disdain for the prosperity gospel. The people who preach this gospel are wolves in sheep’s clothing. Watch this video by John Piper and may it touch your soul as it did mine!

  1. Heretic says:

    I respectfully disagree.

    Prosperity is what God is about. However I will qualify that statement by saying that prosperity in His true Kingdom is not the same as prosperity in the kingdoms of men.

    God is not anti-prosperity. He is the God of abundance. He lacks nothing. He is good. He gives good gifts to His children. When they ask Him for bread He won’t give them a stone.

    If He can’t or He won’t, then He’s a liar. If He can’t or He won’t then He’s not all powerful. & If He’s a liar and not all-powerful, then He’s not worthy.

    Jesus came that we might have life, and that more abundantly. He came to set the captives free, to proclaim liberty to all who are oppressed. Here and now – TODAY! That is the message of the Gospel of the Kingdom. That is the good news. The Kingdom is not coming, it is here now. It is not just in word but it is in deed and displayed in power. Not for the glory of man, but for the glory of His name!

    Jesus didn’t die for me or you. He died that He might bring glory to the Father. He died that all men might be reconciled to God to the glory of His name.

    He came to bring prosperity of soul to all those who chose to live in the one true Kingdom!

    Blessings!

  3. Adam Smith says:

    In case it wasn’t clear, the prosperity gospel that I “disdain” is the one as the world defines, not God’s word.

    A perfect example is Deuteronomy 28:11. I think the world has misinterpreted this verse.

    That is only one example of the prosperity verses in the Bible. I believe these are not what the world is talking about.

    God is Love!

    In Christ, Adam

    The first time I watched this I had to do so without the sound! I just listend with the volume up and I have to tell you…this really blew me away! We are so easy to thank God for what we have, but when we have nothing…we say God where are you? Why are you not helping me? I feel ashamed at some of the things I have done this week. I am so glad that I watched this again! Praise God for all he has done and will do!
