That is, the doctrine holds that material prosperity, particularly financial prosperity and success in business and personal life, is to be expected as external evidence of God’s favor.

    I love this Piper’s message here! Do you know if this is something he said recently? I ask bc I am only in the past few weeks seeing it in the bolgosphere…

    You may also be interested in Justin Peters ministry. see: http://www.justinpeters.org and be sure to watch “demo.”

    Its on this same topic, but a little expanded… Justin spoke at my church and comes highly recommended by my pastor, Dr. John MacArthur.

    God bless you!

    PS: I also loved your article on “time.” Amen and amen!

    Good article. Sometimes people forget that they should be responsible for what they get in life. Prosperity is a style of life. So people never should forget to work hard and be socially responsible. Warm regards,
