The Great Sadness - Bob Arnold on Prosperity Theology
Bob concludes our series on the Great Sadness by speaking truth to one of the major contemporary cultural heresies called "Prosperity Theology." At it's essence Prosperity Theology promises health, wealth, and wisdom - the idea that you'll have everything you need as you journey towards upward mobility. But the prosperity that the Gospel offers is not financial but spiritual, and often this comes through great suffering. Nowhere in the Gospel does Jesus guarantee financial prosperity. People's notion of God tends to fall apart when they encounter great pain and suffering, due to our distorted notion from the prosperity gospel. Bob illuminates how following Christ is more often a path of descent than ascent, and reminds us that Jesus himself was willing to go there. Will you join him?
