Language & Logic of Prosperity Gospel

Joseph Prince in his book, Destined to Reign, remark that there is no such thing as Prosperity Gospel. The only true and one gospel is the one that teaches prosperity. Joseph Prince is of course not the only one who misunderstand the meaning of Jesus' gospel.

Eddie Fearon posted a brief analysis of the language and logic of prosperity gospel.
"...there is a fundamental failure in prosperity teaching to understand the truly ‘eschatological’ nature of GOD’s mission. We still await the full presence of GOD and his reign on earth including the full transformation of our bodies and hearts and minds and lives... Prosperity teaching seems to operate with an “over-realized eschatology”, when the fullness of the personal aspects of salvation, along with the social and cosmic still await realization in the future."
Right on.
