Three Minutes of Righteous Anger

John PiperSome time ago, I posted a video unloading on “Prosperity Pimps”.  Now it is Pastor John Piper’s turn to pop open a can of righteous wrath on those who peddle the poison of prosperity on television and in our pulpits.

This last week, I had the misfortune of hearing the following things screamed from a conference pulpit:  “Whatever you give tonight, God will return to you 100 times more!” – “If you plant a financial seed, you will never be in debt or sick again!” – “I activate angels right now to bring blessing into your lives!”, and on and on and on…

But what does Pastor John Piper, of Bethlehem Baptist Church, think of the “prosperity health and wealth” gospel?  Turn up your speakers, put your seatbelt on and get ready for Piper to “get his smitage on”!

  1. 1 Timothy 6:3-12

    If anyone teaches false doctrines and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching, he is conceited and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions 5and constant friction between men of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.

    But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

    But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

    WOW! Don’t know what else to really say….. AWESOME!!!!!!! I wish there was a way to download this video… cuz I would send it to everyone I know on dvds or cds so they could play it in churches and stuff. It is sooooo true… the pure and simple truths of the Gospel has been lost amid the commercialism that plagues America.

    We need more people that are willing to dig the garbage away and clean it up again and bring it back to where its supposed to be… simple and IN YOUR FACE truth!

    Keep up the awesome work! God Bless you!
