Is the Prosperity Gospel Biblical?

First, it's important to remember that the Good Samaritan would have disappeared into obscurity if he'd only had good intentions. He also had money or wouldn't have been able to help the man beaten and left to die at the side of the road. Seems money played a most important role!

If that doesn't convince you, check out Eccl. 10:19.

"A feast is made for laugher and wine maketh merry; but money answereth all things."

I plan to take those bits of biblical info at their word!

Have a prosperous new year. And thank you, Joel Osteen, for taking all this stuff mainstream.

(If you want to learn more about Joel, click on the title of this post. Remember this as well: He has many Christian detractors so be prepared for that.)
