PAUL WASHER – THE TRUE PROSPERITY GOSPEL

( JOEL OSTEEN )
“See the Bible says that we can grow in favor,” said Osteen in his sermon “Increasing in Favor” “I believe one of the main ways that we grow in favor is by declaring it. It’s not enough to just read it it’s not enough to just believe it. You’ve got to speak it out. Your words have creative power. And one of the primary ways we release our faith is through our words. And there is a divine connection between you declaring God’s favor and you seeing God’s favor manifest in your life…You’ve got to give life to your faith by speaking it out.”

In keeping with the erroneous idea of using some positive thinking to get what you want in life, Osteen preaches the Kenneth Hagin/Charles Capps idea that we can get what we want from God by our faith-filled words. This entire sermon was on how as a child of God we should be receiving “preferential treatment” by everyone. He testified about how he had been pulled over a couple of times for speeding but when the officer saw his last name was Osteen, no ticket was issued. He said the same can happen for every Christian who wakes up declaring they have God’s favor. By following this method Osteen says he has been able to get the best parking spot in a crowded parking lot, a first class seat on a crowded airplane with no boarding pass, and priority seating at restaurants.

This is a far cry from what the treatment the Bible says true believers will receive from the world. Jesus warned in John 15:18-19, “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.”

The Bible also seems to quote these new prosperity “Christians” word for word in Revelation 3:17 — “I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing.” But Jesus responds, “you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked.”

And yet that is the cry of the prosperity gospel — one whose god is the goods of this world — what the Bible calls “lovers of mammon.” The apostle John in his first epistle reiterates his warning against chasing after this world’s favor:

“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him” 1 John 2:15.
