Why Christians Must Continue to Guard the Truth of the Gospel

What about the so-called “prosperity gospel” should cause us concern? Is this approach to the gospel heretical? What should we do if we find ourselves in a church that preaches this view? In this clip from Pastor’s Perspective (KWAVE Radio), J. Warner addresses these questions and more.

    True, but we don't want to keep watching these prosperity preachers for more than 2 minutes

    The problem with topical sermons is that people are typically not skilled enough to actually be able to preach on a topic out of a text that is in context. Also, you have a tendency to over do certain topics based on personal preference. If you walk through Scripture book by book, you are bound to hit everything or at least everything that is covered in Scripture. Unless you are afraid of certain topics in which case you will probably just skim the passages you don't want to talk about anyways. I often here Pastors talk about how you should walk book by book through the Bible in Sundays. I have yet to see one model it.

    Apparently not because I'm broke.

    There’s nothing noble in being poor. I think God wants you to maximize your potential and be rewarded for the effort you exert in serving people. I was reminded by Margaret Thatcher who says the Good Samaritan without money would only have good intentions.

    THE TRILLION-DOLLAR QUESTION: Will you go to Heaven when you die? Have you lied, stolen, used God’s name in vain, or lusted (which Jesus said was adultery, Mt. 5:28)? If so, God sees you as a liar, thief, blasphemer, and adulterer at heart. If you die in your sins, you will end up in a terrible place called Hell. But there’s good news. Though we broke God’s Law, Jesus paid the fine by dying on the cross: “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (Jn. 3:16). Then Jesus rose from the dead and was seen by hundreds of eyewitnesses. He fulfilled all the prophecies of the promised Savior. Please, today, repent and trust Jesus, and God will forgive you and grant you the gift of eternal life (Eph. 2:8,9). Then, to show your gratitude, read the Bible daily and obey it, join a Christian church, and be baptized. Visit and

    Great points all.

    Can't wait for the video breaking down the stiff-neckedness of Cessationists.

    Confessional Lutheran and no doubt in other denominations the probably of dwelling on a few verses repeatedly is handled in a Synod ( denominational) level. All congregations of the denomination read the same verses. These will be either a two or three year cycle so the whole Bible is covered. This is usually three readings, one from the Old Testament, one from the Epistles and one from the Gospel. For at least two very independent confessional Lutheran denominations for the Easter season (Easter to Pentecost) the Old Testament reading is replaced by one from Acts. The verse the sermon is based on is also determined. The pastor may write his own, use a published sermon or modify a published sermon depending on his opinion of his skills. My uncle wrote several books of published sermons, I think they are out of print but some of his works are still on Concordia Publishing House's list.

    Prosperity gospel is nothing but counterfeit gospel. Yes, our God can prosper us materially, but thinking that I MUST be rich/wealthy just because I'm a Christian is simply wrong.

    If you live in the North Houston area, come to Church Project where Sunday gatherings are exactly what J. Warner talks about, line by line exegesis of the scripture. We also have 40+ small House Church communities scattered around the area that meet once a week for in depth study and fellowship. Church Project does church this way as that is the model for church we have in Acts and it works. We also have topical teaching at other times for groups that are interested in a particular subject.

    Does God want me to be rich? No. That is not my place in His plan. Each of us has a place in God's plan where we can best serve Him.
    One of the Prophets (I am too lazy to look it up) asked God for just enough for his daily needs. Not too much so he would take God for granted. Not too little so he would be tempted to steal.
    When Jesus tought His disciples, and us to pray the Lord's Prayer He tought us to ask for "our daily bread" which is food clothibg and shelter for each day's needs. No less and no more.

    You're more diplomatic than I am. The prosperity gospel is quite literally satanic. What else would you call truth contaminated by lies and the worship of the things of this world? Judging by their luxurious lifestyles and celebrity behavior, it's clear many of them know they're running a pyramid scheme.

    This is "what is your take on (blank)" questions.

    You know, what? Prosperity gospel is required to be investigated.
