Prosperity gospel

I don’t know what you think about the so called prosperity gospel. It seems to exist in so many shapes all from people who say that if you only do certain things God will prosper you and give you health, wealth and security to those who hold the same theological position but seem to say that God will give you all of these things just because he loves you.

On the other end of the scale we find those who rather would endorse self-chosen poverty or perhaps shared ownership as the Christian ideal.

Personally I do believe we need a theology that gives room for the rich and the poor together as one, where principles such as generosity and contentment reign as well as allowing ourselves to hold a theology that gives room for suffering.

I’ll share a video of John Piper sharing his view on this subject. It is very well worth listening to. What do you think about this?
