Poor Christians are deluded by 'grab it' gospel
"We" look so bad when we preach only prosperity. "We" miss God when we look only for prosperity. God looks so bad - when calamity and trials come as purifying agents, when we suffer like He did, in order to make us more like Jesus. The balance is that we need God, and in life's junk we discover how much. Don't throw away the junk, because it's the very thing that will make "true prosperity" real in life. Amen?
