Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves –Matthew 7:15
Unfortunately, many Christians have fallen victim to the “anything Jesus” culture; that any person or church proclaiming the name of Jesus is automatically righteous. This has led to some of the world’s largest churches being those that proclaim false gospels, namely the prosperity gospel. The prosperity gospel teaches that belief in God is accompanied by financial and physical fortune and that faith is in direct correlation with worldly blessing. These teachings can sometimes be blatant and sometimes be veiled, but they are always an anti-Christian gospel. The Bible calls Christians to be patient, humble, longsuffering servants who will obtain their ultimate reward in Christ not in this life but in the eternal life to come. To borrow from the mecca of prosperity teachers, Joel Osteen’s book, if “Your Best Life (is) Now” ….. then you are in trouble friend.
