Prosperity Preaching

Clay's picture

What is your opinion on prosperity style preaching? Many mainstream Christian preachers have jumped on the bandwagon with the "sew a seed" and reap a fortune from God fad these days. TV Evangelists seem to corner the market with this regard.

Do you believe it is theologically correct in giving more because you want more?

Does this style of preaching tend to be a protestant effort or are there Catholic preachers/teachers involved too?

If you disagree with the above, what do you think the end consequence will be for those involved? Will they suffer eternal damnation for emptying the pockets of vulnerable desperate Christians?

My personal opinion is that Jesus calls me to take up my cross and follow him.

These are our brothers and sisters in Christ

The teaching of prosperity teachers is based on so many scriptures that you cannot argue with the word of God. God has always prospered His people and any good father wants to provide for his children and God is the surpreme Father and if we obey him He promises to meet our needs.

So you must check your own heart and to the pure all things are pure and to the greedy ...... If you judge these brothers to be only greedy and after money you must check your own heart first. Because God's word clearly tells us that He will provide for us if we are not seeking only to prosper for our own lusts.

I hope this is helpful.
