John Piper and the Prosperity Gospel

Read Galatians 1:6-10.

I'd like to share one of my favourite YouTube clips. The speech audio is the voice of John Piper speaking about the "Prosperity Gospel". It sounds like an extract from a sermon; I'm not certain of the context. The music, images and text that have gone into the production of this video clip are very effective in driving home the core message.

I invite you to spend three minutes to watch this:

I'll tell you what my thoughts are.

It's been the best 6 minutes I've spent today. I say 6 minutes because I watched it twice.

Yes! Yes! And yes again!

Blessings,
Terri

Brilliant. Had me on the edge of my seat. Thanks for pointing me to it.

Have posted it on the Presbytery website too - cq.presbytery.org.au - partly because I couldn't get it to work on my CCPC website. Thanks Bernard.
