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.

Presumtions

I'll be brutally honest in sharing that these preachers irk me only because I see them as being presumptuous with God. As if they have discovered a formula in getting God to respond consistently in a certain manner. Their preaching borders on the creature having control over the creator.

I don't like the fact that they irk me either which is why I avoid them. I don't like people having power to frustrate me.

That's funny...I just realized that my post is presumptuous about other people's presumptions ;-)

Regards,

Clay
