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.

sow a seed

I believe in sowing seeds ro reap a harvest, as that what the bible says, but to use it for getting money i think is manipulation. they alway s seam to use in in context with money, even in local church's for tithing. i also like to prosper than have a pauper way of thinking, after all we are childern of the most High, but to prosper is more that just about money, it is about your growth in the Lord, it is about having a richness in Spirit.
