Prosperity Gospel Taught to 4 in 10 Evangelical Churchgoers
About a third of Protestant churchgoers say their congregation teaches that God will bless them if they donate money.

Two-thirds say God wants them to prosper. One in 4 say they have to do something for God to receive material blessings in return.

Those are among the key findings of a new study on ‚Äúprosperity gospel‚ÄĚ beliefs from Nashville-based LifeWay Research, which surveyed 1,010 Americans who attend a Protestant or nondenominational church at least once a month.

The Prosperity Gospel has been a curse in many of the churches in the West, and imported wholesale into Africa, South East Asia, and South America, to the spiritual destruction of many.

Meanwhile in many countries all over the world, where there is strong persecution of Christians, the faithful assemblies, churches, house meetings and in some very severe cases such as North Korea, family churches and individuals meeting secretly in basements, caves and in forest places using whispered hymns and hand written copied pages from illegal Bibles carry on without reference to the heresies of the Prosperity Gospel, but instead taking up their cross daily and following the Lord Jesus Christ in their daily sufferings.

Christianaudio.com just made "Of Religious Affections," by Jonathan Edwards available as the free audio book download of the month. They renamed it "The Religious Affections" and I hope it's not the version that Finney (heretic!) abridged. Edwards painstakingly argues that charismatic influences, a love for attendance, or Scriptural reminders are not reliable marks of true convergence. Instead, he looks for genuine evidence of repentance unto life and the fruit of the Spirit. He did not include monetary wealth or gain in his list either way. The original is a good book, though, and it's free.

...The second foundation for Dispensationalism is a distinction between the Church and Israel. First Corinthians 10:32 says, ‚ÄúGive none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God:‚ÄĚ. There is a great distinction in Scripture between the Church and Israel. This has a powerful effect in the content of our Gospel. There are some who are presenting the ‚Äúprosperity gospel‚ÄĚ which in effect says, if you obey God, material blessings will result. Obviously this comes from confusing Israel with the Church. While Israel had spiritual blessings, their blessings were primarily physical. On the other hand, while the Church has physical blessings, our blessings are primarily spiritual. This ‚Äúprosperity gospel‚ÄĚ is taken to ridiculous heights, reducing the Almighty God to no[t] much more than Santa Claus....

if you bless them you will be blessed, sounds a lot like false prosperity gospel

what if, if you sow spiritual sodom then you will reap spiritual sodom?

solemn words for today

what of "you won't see tribulation, you will be raptured"... sounds like prosperity gospel.... instead of "you will see tribulation"

is the decaying baptist world just a mere consequence of faulty doctrine over many generations?

for the SBC certainly didn't start off dispensational or cultural mxst....

God is not opposed to prosperity--Joshua 1:8, Psalm1:1-3. Unfortunately, many professing Christians don't know what biblical prosperity is and are not willing to meet the biblical requirements for attaining it. Joseph prospered in prison (Genesis 39), but covetous men and women don't want Joseph's brand of prosperity. They want to use God to fulfill their carnal lusts.

If any man teach otherwise, and consenteth not to the wholesome words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness, he is puffed up and knoweth nothing, but doteth about questions and strive of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, froward disputations of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, which think that gain is godliness: from such separate thyself. But godliness is great gain, if a man be content with that he hath. - 1 Timothy 6:3-6
Amen QC, the gain that godliness brings will never be fathomed by the unregenerate.

1 Timothy 6:6 KJV
(6)  But godliness with contentment is great gain.

Philippians 4:11 KJV
(11)  Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

Contentment is a wonderful thing to have.

Some time ago, John MacArthur did a series of sermons on charismatic chaos. In fact it was turned into a book. He spent two sermons on the health and wealth part of this nonsense. See [URL=http://articles.ochristian.com/article2188.shtml]]]https://tinyurl.com/ze5r4al (Charismatic Chaos: Sermon 12 - "Does God promise Health and Wealth? (Part 1)")[/URL] and [URL=http://articles.ochristian.com/article2189.shtml]]]https://tinyurl.com/hcodt5v (Charismatic Chaos: Sermon 13 - "Does God promise Health and Wealth? (Part 2)")[/URL]

Now these are long and informative sermons. Well worth spending some time with.
