“The Dangers of Prosperity Gospel to the soul”


Popular preaching such as “give and it shall be given to you” has been misinterpreted for personal gain. Preachers has used these tactics to acquire wealth for themselves and their families.

No wonder, pastors of today are so rich while their congregation and other people around them remain poor. We are stuck with a generation of preachers who claim that God is a rewarder of laziness and poverty.

The message from the pulpit shows that it is possible to reap where one did not work, meaning that, one can get something out of nothing if they can sow a seed. Then, why should a person choose to learn a hard way where there is an easier way?

Spreading the message of instant success and breakthrough has left a generation of people who are tasty for instant result and immediate relief. Attentions are more on what one can get now rather than what he or her will get later. Message of repentance, self denial, carrying of cross and eternity has been outdated.

Preachers will almost spent all the time on the pulpit talking about “tithing”, “sowing of seeds”, “breakthroughs”, “miracles”, “blessing” and “wonders”. They usually glorify riches acquired by miraculous sources.

They will instil fears to their converts with stories of what happened to people that robbed God through tithing and sowing of financial seeds. And what witches and wizards can do to those who failed to pay their first fruits.

Preacher usually used stories on how a brother or a sister become a millionaire by “sowing a financial seed” or “paying of tithes”. This is NOT the true gospel that Christ and His apostles had taught.

Preachers should give credit to those who succeeded through hardworking and commitment. Preachers should go back to the true gospel of Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Gospel of hardworking and productivity.

“Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you: Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us. For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat”
2 Thessalonians 3:8‭-‬10.

“Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth”
Ephesians 4:28.
