The Prosperity Gospel


 

HI THERE AND WELCOME TO THIS PAGE. Please report dead links here. Thanks!

 

The Prosperity Gospel (or 'the health & wealth gospel' as it is sometimes called) is not the Biblical gospel, it is a bad gospel. A child of the 'Word of Faith Movement', it is a cancer of the modern day church. At its heart is a belief that God wants us to be healthy and wealthy; a personal development message dressed up with Christian terminology.

It's often just a news story - see TIME magazine, for example - but at it's heart is a different gospel. Didn't the apostle Paul have some pretty strong words about a different gospel?
