It Promises Far Too Little

Al Mohler is really on a role this week.  His recent article on the Prosperity Gospel is a must read if you’ve ever encountered this satanic movement.  Mohler writes:

In the end, the biggest problem with prosperity theology is not that it promises too much, but that it promises far too little. The Gospel of Jesus Christ offers salvation from sin, not a platform for earthly prosperity. While we should seek to understand what drives so many into this movement, we must never for a moment fail to see its message for what it is — a false and failed gospel.

    Drew – Have you seen the movie “Facing the giants” ??http://www.netflix.com/Movie/Facing_the_Giants/70056416?trkid=931747
    It’s done by the same guys who did, “Fireproof”.

    We watched Facing the Giants the other night, and while it has some good messages in it, it seems it’s preaching the Prosperity Gospel. I don’t remeber that being the case in Fireproof, so maybe that’s not the director’s agenda, but it seemed pretty blatant.

    Thought I’d see what you thought, if you’ve seen the film.

    You know, I actually haven’t seen “Facing the Giants” yet, so I don’t really know. I do know that the prosperity gospel is out there in all kinds of subtle forms now, so you have to be on guard against it. The latest version is Joel Osteen, which isn’t quite as blatant as some of the old guard, but is equally as poisonous.
