Lie #1: The Prosperity Gospel is Legitimate

More destructive than many of today’s social ills is the lie commonly embraced within Christianity telling us that if we just have enough faith we can be healthy, wealthy and happy. The reason it is more destructive is that it is something promoted within the Church, by so-called preachers claiming to have a word from God about how you can have your best life now. And yet such teaching stands in stark contrast to Jesus’ standards regarding contentment and discipleship, encouraging a self-absorption that ends up leaving many empty, disillusioned, and, therefore, wounded.
