Prosperity Gospel

Asthma.  It sucks.  Literally.

So, here I am, up in the middle of the night... and with basic cable, my options on TV are mind-numbingly horrid.  I can either watch an infomercial or a religious program.... and neither of them are the "good" ones.

For the last little bit, I've listened to a man (who is quite scary) take scripture that I know and love and preach to his "flock" about how said-scripture will bless their families.... er, um... financially?


Several of you are familiar with the whole "Prosperity Gospel" movement... but let me tell you... it's... ummm... bullcrap.

Yes, God will bless you when you serve Him.  For sure.  But don't serve Him hoping to be blessed FINANCIALLY.  It's crap.

Wow, hot of the presses... he "sowed a seed" and was immediately blessed (just seven minutes later!) with a check for $20,000.  Guess I should quit blogging and go garden... my bank account needs it.

I also recommend the following book by Karen Spears Zacharias: "Will Jesus Buy Me a Double-Wide?: ('Cause I Need More Room for My Plasma TV"


I love you Becky Johnston! You can always make me smile in your blog posts.
