How does Joel Osteen reconcile his wealth with Matthew 6:24? You cannot serve God and money. Yet, he does anyway! Osteen is not alone at this. There are hundreds of Prosperity preachers out there. Ordinary People support these hucksters. They take their money and run or fly in their high-priced Jets. They are literally laughing all the way to the bank at your expense. According to the Bible a pastor must not be greedy for money. The Prosperity Gospel stays away from the New Testament and uses prosperity verses from the Old Testament. The reason why is simple. The word prosperity is not found even once in the New Testament. What it all boils down to is that the people that support them are biblically illiterate. They have no discernment whatsoever. These pastors that bilk their congregations have a warm place in Hell reserved for them. Since Prosperity preyers love the Old Testament so, hear these words from Zephaniah 1:18. Neither there silver Nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord’s Wrath. And that is the end game for those of the Prosperity Gospel.
