Gospel and Culture—The American Gospel

I Peter 1:1-11

5 errors of the Prosperity Gospel(David Jones)

• The Abrahamic covenant of Blessing is a means to material entitlement

• Jesus’ atonement extends to the “sin” of material poverty

• Christians give in order to gain material compensation from God

• Faith is a self-generated spiritual force that leads to Prosperity

• Prayer is a tool to force God to grant prosperity.

Telos: The Prosperity Gospel is a false gospel because it denies basic doctrines of faith.

1. The Prosperity gospel is false because faith produces fruit (1-2)

2. The Prosperity gospel is false because our wealth is not worldly (3-5)

3. The Prosperity Gospel is false because suffering is not from sin (6-7)

4. The Prosperity gospel is false because Jesus is everything (8-12)
