The Prosperity Gospel vs. Taking Up Your Cross

“God has a big dream for your life. God is positive, there is nothing negative about him. God wants to increase you financially, by giving you promotions, fresh ideas, and creativity.” —Joel Osteen

“If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart, I have overcome the world” —Jesus.

The two quotations above were both spoken by men who have preached the gospel. One section represents the true gospel, and the other a different gospel. One section contains the words of Jesus and the other contains the words of Joel Osteen. By reading the words above, you can identify which selection represents the true gospel and which one is false.

We are living in the days when feeling good about yourself is king.
