Why hatred is not an overreaction to the prosperity gospel

But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.

– Paul in 1 Timothy 6

Truly, I say to you, only with difficulty will a rich person enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.

– Jesus in Matthew 19

John Piper explains why he abominates the prosperity gospel.

Benny Hinn provides a case in point on why Piper’s hatred is justified.
