Theologian Al Mohler Confronts Prosperity Theology
We had a lively day on the blog with yesterday’s humorous post about Victoria Osteen’s non-sensical drivel. As a followup to that post, I thought you might like to read a thoughtful response from a serious theologian, Dr. Al Mohler.
God’s pleasure in his human creatures centers in his desire and will that they come to faith in Jesus Christ and be saved. The great dividing line in humanity is not between the rich and the poor, the sick and the well, or even the happy and the unhappy. The great divide is between those who, in Christ, have been transferred from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of God’s glorious light.
Mere happiness cannot bear the weight of the Gospel.
P.S. Be sure to check out Matt Walsh’s similar thoughts on the matter.
