The gospel can get you rich
What about this for a new year’s thought – prosperity gospel? Yes, preaching to people so that they can be rich. I don’t mean the usual exhortations by politicians at political rallies. Those are uninspiring. Nor do I mean the EDPRS, although I know that this readily drops from the lips of some people in certain positions of leadership as proof that they are in the fight to banish poverty. I mean the Christian gospel, preached from the pulpit. Yes, it is not a sin to want to be rich, according to some preachers. Actually, it is their moral and pastoral duty to encourage their flock to aspire to be rich.
