I am not sure how this will be received. It is the truth, and seems to be all over the internet but if the Moderators don't want it to be talked about, I am sure they will respond as they see fit.

Now what he is saying is what a lot
2 Peter 2:3 ...'...…"
"And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you.'


What is the prosperity gospel? Exactly what it says, it teaches that you NEED prosperity in your material life. It doesn't preach that you need prosperity in your 'spiritual' life, which the Bible teaches, but in your material worldly life. All they are preaching is IDOLATRY, elevating wealth and possessions above God, and elevating created things above the CREATOR. This is 'another' gospel which Paul warned about ... Galatians 1:6 ...'...….
I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel. Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.'


1 Timothy 6:5-8 ...'...…...
"Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.'

There's a theological heresy implicit in too many Christians approach.

That heresy is that it is God's responsibility to provide the "good-life" to His people, with Him making our paths straight and easy to the goals we desire.

In reality it is our priveledge to be used to achieve His purpose. He does not 'inflict' trials gratuitously, nor withholds blessings. Somtimes He chastens us for our growth, Sometimes we dig our own pits.

Agreed!

We tend to do what we want to do and then blame God for what He allowed to do.
