One of the major problems with the so-called “prosperity gospel” is they operate from a flawed premise. We were not called to health, wealth, and peace. We were called to suffer (1 Peter 2:20-21). You can’t pick and choose the verses you want that seem to support your idea and ignore the rest of God’s Word. The Lord said any man who takes away from His Word will not inherit eternal life.
Yet, Sunday after Sunday, the most popular preachers on the most popular stations and platforms espouse a gospel that is centered on you rather than on God. They twist and interpret God’s Word in such a way as to ignore the bigger picture, all with the hopes of drawing ever more people into their teaching and congregation.
