    Yeah, a lot of those who critique and criticize the Prosperity Gospel allow wealth to blind them. Most of the people writing the criticisms are well-off, Middle-Class, Bourgeoisie, and live in the Western world. They are worse than Prosperity Gospellers, being that they think their physical well-being does not have God as its cause, rather a seeming random event.

    So it’s easy for someone in clean clothes, with a home to go to, and a guaranteed, at least cognitively, paycheck to rant against the prosperity gospel. If you want to critique it, and it has some fundamental problems, then live poor and dependently.


  2. The problem with the argument that we can trust God too provide for our basic needs is that there are Christians in the world who do struggle to put food on the table or pay for vital medicines. God does not appear to be providing for their basics. Can they trust God?
