Nuggets from Occult Invasion |

This false teaching panders to a desire for riches, one of the basest human lusts. “Jesus was rich,” say Frederick Price and other “faith teachers,” and therefore His followers must be rich. Kenneth Hagin says that to drive an old car instead of a new Cadillac isn’t “being humble, that’s being ignorant [of God’s laws of prosperity].” Frederick Price agrees: “I drive a Rolls Royce…following Jesus’ steps.” Gloria Copeland writes, “You give [us]…$1,000 and receive $100,000…. Mark:10:30 is a very good deal.” Oral Roberts promises “PROSPERITY MIRACLES” for those who “take advantage of the hundredfold return….” How does this differ from Catholicism’s sale of indulgences? Each is simply a different form of running “greedily after the error of Balaam for reward” (Jude 11). How does Pat Robertson’s statement that when you “confess blessing…and success, those things will come to you” differ from John Marks Templeton’s statement that “your spiritual principles attract prosperity to you…material success…comes…from being in tune with the infinite…”?
