The historical origins of the prosperity gospel is from an Gnostic source: that of reading "beyond" the mere text of scripture to seek some "deeper," hidden meanings. Thus, the prosperity theology is a pleasure-seeking religion and utilitarian in nature: that of the avoidance of pain in pursuit of happiness. The proponents of the prosperity theology give a vague, but simplistic "revelational" answers to complex issues. Due to the prosperity gospel association with that of New Thought metaphysics is that of the core of its beliefs and values are theologically flawed in its explicit denial of the essential doctrine of the Christian faith. The Christ of scripture have been made to fit into the cultural context of Faith theology as to wear designer clothes, thus Jesus was a product of God's spoken word of faith. There is no precedence in the Bible that support the idea of the health and wealth gospels.

Review Text

  • By Music Lover on 21 December 2014

    Sadly, this booklet (only 50 pages) loses a lot of its impact because of the very poor standard of writing. With respect, I am positive that the author ought to have engaged the services of someone well-versed in English grammar, style and syntax to assist him to make the booklet more readable and comprehensible.Once you work through the text and sort out what the Pastor is saying, you find many strong and valid points, stressing how the "Prosperity" preachers are vastly in error and leading others astray. It will take considerable effort to read this booklet which, as it is, appears to be written in a kind of patois, almost by someone whose first language is not English. Pastor Miller speaks of "eisgesis" (his quotes); the word is eisegesis. OK, a small typo, but care should be paid to spelling, especially with such an important word.I hope there will be a re-print soon to put the booklet into good, easily understandable English, to strengthen and fine-tune the important message. We desperately need such material to combat the insidious "Prosperity" preachers such as Osteen, Hinn, Copeland, White, Dollar, Jakes, Thompson, Tilton, Dollar, Duplantis, Popoff, Parsley and others.
