THE PROSPERITY GOSPEL OF GREED
BY RYAN HICKS
It is becoming evident today that much of what is taught as "prosperity teaching" is nothing more than greed and self-centeredness. I have heard an untold number of stories of the greedy "prospering" and claiming God blessed them. Let me digress a little by saying that the Bible does plainly teach prosperity for the child of God, but what is said to be prosperity teaching today is nothing more than using Scripture to cover up greed and love of money.
People are busy buying luxury cars, clothes, watches, etc. all in an effort to look like they "believe" God more than the poor saint. This is abominable and the sign of being unregenerate. There is a passage in 1 Timothy that I want to deal with because it is ignored by so many and the implications are of eternal significance to those Satan tricks into serving mammon under the guise of faith and biblical prosperity.
