“If you offer people what they do not consider foolishness in the natural man, you’re not preaching the gospel. And the prosperity gospel offers to people what they desperately want as fallen people, gives it to them, and grows huge churches, and we export it to Africa and the Philipines, flying in with our jets, bilking of there money and going back to our condos worth 3 million dollars. It is horrific what we export as Americans.”
My thoughts: We must always be careful that we guard our hearts and minds from believing that you can have “your best life now” apart from suffering for the gospel of the Kingdom. The so called “preachers” on TV won’t tell you the dangers associated with their theology, because to do so lowers their profit margin.
Jesus said, “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” The prosperity false-gospel preachers above all else urge us to serve the false god of money, sacrificing the lives of their followers on the alters of greed and comfort.
We must flee from them, or we will find ourselves with slit throats, being burned as a sacrifice to feed their coveting!
