God or Mammon?

The Snare of the Prosperity Gospel

Robin Compston

'Who would have predicted that Christian churches would be infected by teaching as blatantly unbiblical as the Prosperity Gospel, an error which contradicts head-on the tenth commandment, and to which all believers should have an instinctive aversion? Yet this teaching has made strong headway'.

So begins this startling unmasking of the heresies of the Prosperity Gospel  movement. Fourteen crucial principles of Christian teaching are shown here to be thrown aside and substituted by opposite ideas.

Here is the book that could deliver many earnest believers from falling prey to the prosperity teachers.
