The Prosperity Gospel in Africa

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]velvetpage)

I got this link from RealLivePreacher, for whose blog I have an RS feed. It's disturbing to say the least. I've talked about this particular heresy before. It's the Calvinist principle taken to its ultimate extreme: if you are a real Christian, God WILL prosper you, and if he doesn't, it's because you're not doing it right. Now that massive distortion of Christianity has taken root in Africa, and I have no doubt it is causing great harm there.

EDIT: There doesn't seem to be a link for Prosperity Gospel. Is the link under a different title?
