The Danger of the Prosperity Gospel

The following video clip from John Piper and Desiring God explains the dangerous nature of prosperity gospel preaching. Much of the so-called-gospel preached in our city is this type of thing.  It is dangerous, and is, as he says, “another gospel.”

He does not overestimate its danger on the mission field. I was in Brazil last year, and Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyer were both the rage in Christian circles. They had a well-funded and well-organized machinery in place to 1) Promote their message 2)Pervert people’s understanding of American Christianity (i.e. this type of gospel is why America is so prosperous and you aren’t) and 3)Pervert the very gospel. Watch it. It will provide you with a wealth of understanding.
