Lately, I have found myself at odds with much of what Matt Walsh has been writing, but on this post…he knocked it out of the park!!!
I was a member of a church, not that long ago, whose Pastor began to follow Joel Osteen’s philosophy of Christianity. He was worshipping at Joel Osteen’s feet, not at the Lord’s. I am thankful that God opened my eyes and removed me from the prosperity teaching. I pray that this post will help remove the blinders from other people’s eyes and expose the truth of the great harm being done by those who are preaching the prosperity message.

“Nothing — no faith at all, even a passionate hostility to faith — is vastly preferable to a faith in a perverted Christianity. An atheist is easier to save than a heretic. Put another way, it’s better for someone to reject Christ than to make up their own version of Him. It’s better for someone to hate the true God than to construct a fake one out of pieces of the real one and fall in love with their creation. It is better for us to be one or the other — Christian or not — than to find some supposed middle ground in between. As the book of Revelation puts it: “I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
