“Test The Spirits”

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.” – 1 John 4:1 (ESV)

I was waiting for a program to start on The Church Channel on Sunday night and the show that was ending flashed a message on the screen:

“You must believe that poverty is a curse.”

A curse ? What an awful thing to say.

You may have already seen this, but John Piper has his own take on the prosperity “gospel”. Click on the link below to see a passionate plea from Dr. Piper as to why this is so wrong…
