Now I have got nothing against prosperity. God wants us to prosper that is true. What I have an issue with is when Preachers of the Gospel preach “you’ll be blessed with a car/house/plane” week after week after week. With not enough preaching on seeking God’s kingdom and its righteousness. The other things are added on to a believer after He has sought God and His Kingdom first.
What happens to the new believer who got born again because he heard that God will bless him with a mansion and 2 years down the line sees none!? Won’t he believe The God we serve is a powerless God!? Won’t he believe Salvation is a big fraud!? Yes he will. And he will run into an error because he has not been taught how to seek God but how to seek Stuff from God.
Every time a son of God presents God as the one who gives cars, houses, air plane etc we run an error of producing weak Christians. Then we begin to wonder why the church appears weak? It is weak because we have not matured enough in God to serve God out of Love but rather we serve because we are seeking God’s blessings.
Preachers of the Gospel need to realize that some sermons we over emphasize is putting the church at risk of losing God in pursuit of worldly things! The cars and the houses will come, but If the heart of a believer is not right with God, Instead if stuff drawing men to God it will pull them away.
