I preached on this same subject on Sunday
In my sermon on Tradition, I hit upon what Piper calls an abomination in the clip above. I called it a heresy, but the effect is the same. Those who misuse the Gospel to feather their own nest are contradicting Scripture. And at is basic core, the Prosperity Gospel is spiritually destructive. If God wants you to be rich and healthy, and you get sick and go broke, what does that mean?
Does God lie?
Is there something wrong with you?
Are you not good enough?
How do you explain that to a broke 35 year old dying of cancer? It is an abominable heresy that is so destructive. Please, avoid any of the Prosperity Gospel folks on television and radio. They preach a false gospel, and one that you should avoid.
