The Prosperity Gospel is not the Gospel of Jesus Christ

The Prosperity Gospel or otherwise known as

The Word of Faith movement

Name it Claim it theology

Health and Wealth Gospel

– that God wants all believers to be rich and always healthy and never sick and that you should not have any suffering or sickness, and you that if you are not experiencing that wealth and prosperity and health, it is your fault for not having enough faith.  These false teachers, such as Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, Joel Osteen, Creflo Dollar, and others, say that faith is a force, and that even God has to exercise faith, and they say that you can control your outcome in life by confessing positive things, these ideas are not Biblical ideas at all and are of the devil.

About Ken Temple

I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I am a sinner who has been saved by the grace of God alone (Ephesians 2:8-9), through faith alone (Galatians 2:16; Romans 3:28; 4:1-16), in Christ alone (John 14:6). But a true faith does not stay alone, it should result in change, fruit, good works, and deeper levels of repentance and hatred of my own sins of selfishness and pride. I am not better than you! I still make mistakes and sin, but the Lord is working on me, conforming me to His character. (Romans 8:28-29; 2 Corinthians 3:16-18) When I do sin, I hate the sin as it is an affront to God, and seek His forgiveness in repentance. (Mark 1:15; 2 Corinthians 7:7-10; Colossians 3:5-16 ) Praise God for His love for sinners (Romans 5:8), shown by the voluntary coming of Christ and His freely laying down His life for us (John 10:18), becoming flesh/human (John 1:1-5; 1:14; Philippians 2:5-8), dying for sins of people from all nations, tribes, and cultures (Revelation 5:9), on the cross, in history, rising from the dead (Romans 10:9-10; Matthew 28, Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24; John 20-21; 1 Corinthians chapter 15). His resurrection from the dead proved that Jesus is the Messiah, the eternal Son of God, the word of God from eternity past; and that He was all the gospels say He was and that He is truth and the life and the way to salvation. (John 14:6)
