Prosperity preaching is ‘nonsense’ – Bishop Dag

Outspoken Presiding Bishop of Lighthouse Chapel
International,  Dag Heward-Mills says prosperity preaching is false
religion and nonsense.

“Today Christians are into happiness preaching – everything to make
you happy – Christ did not come to make us happy – Christ came to save
us from our sins  – and to put happiness and prosperity as the reason
for Christianity is a false religion – that is not Christianity.

“Let us not follow comfort – to be a good Christian you cannot be
comfortable – to be a good Christian you cannot always try to be happy –
this prosperity, money gospel is a nonsense gospel that is not why
Jesus came to this world…” he said.

Bishop Heward-Mills made the statement during his Easter message to
thousands of church members who gathered at the Independence Square for a
Good Friday Convention this Easter.

Preaching on the topic “the token of the blood”, Bishop Dag
Heward-Mills noted that Jesus did not come to make people happy and
comfortable but to save man from his sins.

He said some preachers have made the gospel about prosperity and
money and are therefore directing the attention and trust of Christians
off Christ and God to the extreme desire for comfort, happiness and
success in secular life, rather than in things that pertain to God.

The Bishop said the focus on comfort, happiness and prosperity is a
sign of a backsliding Christians and God will bring judgment on such

Bishop Dag Heward-Mills contended that because of the extreme focus
on prosperity preaching, most Christians have placed their businesses
and politics above God and they lie, steal, cheat and do everything for
business and political success, without thinking about pleasing God.

“Today when a Christian says ‘I am blessed’ it means business is
working – today a lot of Christians will sacrifice anything for business
to work – you put aside Christ, you become a liar, you become a thief –
you cannot see the difference between Christians and non-Christians
because of business,” he said.

The outspoken corruption crusader also warned Christians who are into
politics not to place politics above God and rig elections because “God
will bring judgment on you if you did that.”

He said it is about time people saw the clear difference between Christians and non-Christians in all aspects of life.
