Prosperity Theology: A Robust Examination
In session four of the Theology of Money course, Alcorn answers the question, “How would the apostle Paul respond to Prosperity Theology?” by examining multiple scriptures in Paul’s letters that address the topic. He then examines the New Testament understanding of wealth as a danger and the contrasting riches of another kind presented in the New Testament. Lastly, he examines some of the half-truths and heresies of prosperity theology by asking, “Did Jesus promise prosperity in this life?” and, “Is God our genie or our master?”
