The Poor and Rich

One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the firm purpose of showing his son how poor people can be. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family. On their return from the trip, the father asked his son, "How was the trip?" "It was great, Dad.""Did you see how poor people can be?" the father asked. "Oh yeah," said the son. "So what did you learn from the trip?" asked the father

The son answered, "I saw that we have one dog and they have four.We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us and they have friends to protect them." 

With this, the boy's father was speechless. Then his son added, "Thanks, Dad, for showing me how poor we are."

Too many times we forget what we have and concentrate on what we don't have. That is one person's worthless object is another's prize possession.It is all based on one's perspective. Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks to God for the bounty we have been provided by Him instead of worrying about wanting more.

Prosperity Gospel

I fear that one of the greatest catastrophic disasters of all time, in the history of mankind, is the Doctrine of Prosperity Gospel. The two fold part is it will take many non Christians away from the possibility of being reborn and lead them by the masses into eternal condemnation in Hell. The second part is that it will take Christians away, who have not yet been reborn.

The condemnation of a soul far outcries the lost of a life; by an eternity

Verse Reference and Definitions

11Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 

12Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. 

13Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

14Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

15Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 

16Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

14But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;

2Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

3For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

4And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Temptation: Lust of the Flesh, Lust of the Eyes, and the Pride of Life

Paul Washer talks about the Prosperity Gospel in First Part of the 15 minute Video.
Paul Washer talks with regard to the Prosperity Gospel preachers who tell  Carnal men they can have the good life now. Live now; die tomorrow. No salvation is necessary. The promise life is here on earth. Joel Olstein, with the largest Prosperity Gospel church, published a book on his version of Prosperity Gospel called "Your Best Life Now". Paul Washer begins saying he doesn't care about your best life.  Paul Washer says that if thousands upon thousands of Prosperity Gospel followers die now before having Jesus in them, Born Again, they will go to Hell. It is a sense of urgency from Paul Washer that I have never heard before. He is shook up and extremely concerned. Anyone who accepts the Prosperity Gospel, which focuses on wealth, power, and the flesh world, instead of Jesus, will be condemned.
John Piper talks about the Prosperity Gospel in the The Second Part of the Video
John Piper was hurt and angry when Joel Olstein, preacher of Prosperity Gospel, took parts of the Bible to create huge Christian churches preaching the Prosperity Gospel that man need not accept Jesus, be born again, but rather obtain riches beyond their dreams by the acceptance of God. The Prosperity Gospel preachers claim to be the salt of the earth. Get your rewards now. Get what you desire now as carnal men. No persecution, rebutting and as natural people with no salvation, just enjoy this life; the here and now. They manipulated Matthew 5:11-16 and John Piper points out this would mean 1 Corinthians 2:14 makes no sense at all.
This doctrine is spreading worldwide and to all the missionary countries. Governments are now refusing missionaries of sound Gospel to enter.

Paul Washer More on Prosperity Gospel 3rd Part of the Video
Paul Washer compares the Prosperity Gospel members to wolves and their God is their belly. But they look like sheep. He goes on to talk about false teachers. They are not just spreading false teachings. They are God's judgement on people who don't want God. The carnal men get the earthly things they want and that raises the Prosperity Gospel churches up to thousands upon thousands of carnal men.   The Prosperity Gospel doesn't have a ministry of reprove, rebuke, exhort from 2 Timothy 4:1-4, they teach they have a ministry of love, implying Jesus does not have a ministry of love because Jesus reproved (assertively chastise us), rebuked (reprimand), and exhorted (severely scold). Paul Washer reiterates that men are not so much a victim of false profits as false profits are the judgement of God upon men who don't want God.
Because of the Prosperity Gospel taking advantage of their citizens, Paul Washer has been told in many places now by their Governments to tell the people back in North America, "please don't send any more missionaries".
John McArthur talks about some of the details of Joel Olstein's Book on the Final Part of the Video.
John McArthur, on the last part of the video, talks of the largest Prosperity Gospel church of Joel Olstein with over 10,000 members. John McArthur goes through the book "Your Best Life Now" and explains the flaws in Joel Olstein's book and the manipulation of the Bible. According to John McArthur, the Prosperity Gospel follows the path of Satan: temptation of lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and pride of life.
