The prosperity gospel teachers and their followers are like Judas Iscariot (the disciple, who betray Jesus).
In that, they use Jesus for personal gain…. status, networking
They don’t want the real Jesus, The suffering, persecuted and dying Jesus.
We are called to deny self, agendas, dreams and so forth, Pick up our Cross and follow Jesus.
Following Jesus has a cost.
The cost of following Jesus outweighs the suffering and persecution, we will receive now. For those who follow Jesus will receive eternal life.
