Health and wealth in this lifetime was never a promise of the gospel. Unfortunately, health and wealth theology has been marketed since the days of Simon Magus (a 1st century charlatan) and has been made more prominent by 20th teachers who subscribe to that theology and use the electronic media to promote it.

That aside, there are many preachers and teachers who hold to the essentials of the Christian faith and do not teach non-biblical doctrine. They are not flashy or pretentious and they may differ on secondary issues, but in core theology one will find them true to the Christian faith, as taught in scripture.

A brief personal study into the teachings of the New Testament will provide the needed discernment to tell the difference between the true and the false.

Kindest Regards

Lets not forget a study of the Old Testament too, to come to a true understanding of the New Testament one must understand the Old Testament too. In order to understand what God is trying to teach us requires a knowledge and understanding of the whole Bible and not just a portion of it.

It would be nice to stay somewhere near the topic of the thread. :)

Is SA worth $11.99? For some, the answer is yes. For others not.
If you want to bash TV preachers, start a new thread.
