The Prosperity Gospel part 2
This is part two of my view on the prosperity gospel. I was given some questions by a good friend (Demetrius) that really blessed me in studying them and how they clearly expose the error found in the prosperity gospel. Check out the first video if you havent gotten the chance, and I pray that this video will help you to understand clearly the falling short and incompleteness of the prosperity gospel. I didnt cover all of the questions in this video, but I will list them below for resource use, in case anyone desires to use them in the future.
1.Does the Prosperity Gospel make men holy (separated from sin and its lordship)?
2. Does the Prosperity Gospel show that God is all satisfying or does it preach that prosperity is all satisfying?
3. Does the Prosperity Gospel empower one to love not the world? 1 John 2:15-16
4. Does the Prosperity Gospel cause us to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. Revelation 4:11 ; Colossians 1:16
5.Does the Prosperity Gospel cause you or the prosperity preacher on the circus church network to increase? It seems like the preacher on the circus church network is the one getting rich driving off with your money in his bentley. 2 Peter 2:3 says that through the means of covetousness these false prophets shall make merchandise of you. Do you ever notice that there are more and more gimmicks year after year to get your money.
6.Does this prosperity Gospel promote Jesus as Lord or Lackey. When Thomas saw Jesus he said My Lord and My God (John 20:28) he did not say "my servant and my genie".
7.Does the Prosperity Gospel warn you of Sin and its exceeding sinfulness and of the wrath to come. One of the primary works of the Holy Spirit working is that he will convince the world of SIN!! John 16:8
8.Does the Prosperity Gospel tell you that without holiness no man or woman will see God. Hebrews 12:14
9.Does the Prosperity Gospel tell you to deny yourself and take up your cross and follow him. Mark 8:34-36. From what I hear, it tells you that "money cometh, Jets flyeth, wallets filleth, and best outfits weareth".
10.Does the Prosperity Gospel make Jesus its portion, love, and end. Does it reveal His sacrifice for sin on the cross and propitiation Romans 3:24-26.
