Joel Osteen vs. Rick Warren on Prosperity Gospel

După Mark Driscoll vs. Joel Osteen  (AICI), în privinţa Evangheliei Prosperităţii, urmează Rick Warren vs. Joel Osteen.

Does God want us to be rich?
When I hear that word rich, I think people say, ‘Well, he’s preaching that everybody’s going to be a millionaire.’
I don’t think that’s it.
I preach that anybody can improve their lives.
I think God wants us to be prosperous.
I think he wants us to be happy. To me, you need to have money to pay your bills.
I think God wants us to send our kids to college.
I think he wants us to be a blessing to other people.
But I don’t think I’d say God wants us to be rich. It’s all relative, isn’t it?
Joel Osteen (Source)

This idea that God wants everybody to be wealthy?
There is a word for that: baloney. It’s creating a false idol.
You don’t measure your self-worth by your net worth.
I can show you millions of faithful followers of Christ who live in poverty.
Why isn’t everyone in the church a millionaire?
Rick Warren (Source)

Cum înţelegem locul durerii, a suferinţei, a relaţiilor rupte şi a anxietatăţii în experienţa unui creştin?
Mark Driscoll şi Joel Osteen sunt doi păstori foarte cunoscuţi cu viziuni diferite asupra acestor subiecte.
Am ales acest videoclip, pentru a asculta punctele lor de vedere.
Nu personalitatea lor contează, ci modul în care părerile lor au sau nu bază biblică.
