Everything that the Bible teaches contradicts the idea that being a Christian is supposed to make someone rich, healthy and happy.
Everything that the Bible teaches contradicts the idea that being a Christian is supposed to make someone rich, healthy and happy.

Consider the following Scriptures from the Bible:

John 16:20, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy."

2nd Timothy 3:12, "Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution."

John 16:33b, "In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."

James 2:5, "Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?"

Luke 16:20,22, "And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried."

1st Corinthians 4:11, "Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace." —THE APOSTLE PAUL

Matthew 8:20, "The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head." —JESUS CHRIST

Hebrews 13:5, "Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."

Covetousness is all we hear about from prosperity preachers . . .

2nd Peter 3:1,3, "But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not."

The Scriptures warn us to beware of preachers who appeal to our desire for personal gain and prosperity. With suave words and cleverly crafted presentations they exploit people to “make merchandise,” i.e., make a profit. In my humble and honest opinion as a born-again Christian who loves Jesus Christ, Bernard Jordan is just another false prophet who exploits Christianity for his own personal gain. This is exactly what Benny Hinn, Don Stewart, Mike Murdock, Jimmy Swaggart, Peter Popoff, Pat Robertson and so many others false prophets do! They sinfully make merchandise of people by appealing to their covetous sinful nature.

I never write articles to be unkind, God forbid. I simply want people to beware of smooth-talkers like E. Bernard Jordan who claim to be of God, but are really of the Devil. Mr. Jordan sells his “master teachings” that he claims will bring a person health, wealth and prosperity if followed. Jesus told us to pick up our cross and follow Him to be crucified . . .

Matthew 16:24, "Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me."

If you follow Christ, you will be hated by the world . . .

John 15:18,19, "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you."

Yep. The health and wealth, "best life now" "gospel" is a lie from the pit of hell.
The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.

The Bible is more of a political-historical document than a spiritual or religious text.

If you want religion and spirituality you have to look past the bible. If you want friendships fellowship temporary peace and a good book that you can use to justify your distorted dysfunctional view of the world, well then the BIBLE would be a great book for that.
