First, the prosperity gospel is found nowhere in the Bible. The prosperity gospel is coldhearted materialism in religious disguise. It chooses Bible verses selectively to fit a name-it-and-claim-it theory, but it does not love God. It wants to use God for selfish, infantile purposes. Where does the prosperity gospel say, as the gospel clearly says in Philippians 3:7–11 (I will paraphrase it), “I have lost everything, and I’m cool with that, because I’ve gained Christ. I have been stripped bare. I have nothing left. All I have is Christ, and I’m happy, because he loves me, and that satisfies my heart”? That is the gospel, and that is true prosperity.
