Spreading the Prosperity Gospel in Singapore...

I'm going to disable comments for this one because somehow I know what some of you are going to say. Treat this as a general knowledge posting to foster greater understanding of the teachings of some of our (mega) churches.

"Prosperity theology (also known as prosperity doctrine, the health and wealth gospel, or the prosperity gospel) is a religious belief found among "tens of millions"[1] of Christians centered on the notion that God provides material prosperity for those he favors.[2] It has been defined by the belief that "Jesus blesses believers with riches"[1] or more specifically as the teaching that "believers have a right to the blessings of health and wealth and that they can obtain these blessings through positive confessions of faith and the 'sowing of seeds' through the faithful payments of tithes and offerings."[3] - Wikipedia, "Properity Theology".





I guess that if you have faith, every single good thing that happens to you has to be a gift from God. My browser crashed when I typed this post...hmmm....
