What Scripture Says About Prosperity

What Scripture Says About Prosperity

Wealth is not a sign of faith. 

God gives wealth to wicked and godly people alike. 

The prosperity gospel has no Biblical basis. Those who teach it take Scriptures out of context and ignore passages like those below:

What Scripture Says About Prosperity
1. We can't focus on money and still serve God (Matthew 6:24-33).

2. We're commanded to store up our treasures in heaven, not on earth (Matthew 6:19-21).

3. Christ was homeless (Matthew 8:20), and He said wealth often interferes with people's devotion to Him (Matthew 19:21-24). 

4. Jesus suggested we sell our belongings and give to the poor because life isn't about possessions (Luke 12:13-34).

5. The Apostle Paul, a man of great faith, sometimes struggled to feed himself. He said Christ gave contentment, not wealth (Philippians 4:10-13).

6. Scripture says poor people often have more faith than rich people (James 2:1- 7).

Our finances are in God's hands. We don't know what tomorrow will bring (James 4:13-16).

  2. You are so right! The world has it wrong and they teach that money is the sign of favor.
