“Adversity makes men, and prosperity makes monsters”

The Kingdom of God is not seduced by materialism
Men need adversity—
However today prosperity is making ‘monsters’

Today prosperity means having lots of possessions
At my disposal for my well-being and enjoyment—
This thought pattern represents the apex of the END TIME SOCIETY
This mindset is also seen in the church—
Extreme self-centeredness is a common theme in
The life of a Christian in the 21st century--
The Bible did warn us about this (2 Timothy 3)
Many people believe that money can buy anything—
With this type of mindset people will ask the question
“Who needs God?”
Christians also display this attitude!

“Today many churches are building more and more
Church structures are getting larger,
More money is being stacked up in the banks,
Airplanes are being bought,
More church vans and church buses are being acquired,
More land is being purchased, and in the eyes of many
This is considered as prosperity or the blessings of God”

The church in the 21st century is seduced by materialism
However the Kingdom of God is not seduced by materialism
Psalm 24:1 declares the simplistic view of the earth
Therefore there is no need for greed--
The poor are never condemned in the Bible
However the rich are warned and the Bible also warns
About the danger of having two Gods

The beast of prosperity is alive and well and
He is dragging many into hell--
Often God splits a church to save them from destruction

Today prosperity means having lots of possessions
At my disposal for my well-being and enjoyment--
This thought pattern represents the apex of the end time society
This mindset is also seen in the church

The Kingdom of God is not seduced by materialism
Men need adversity—
However today prosperity is making ‘monsters’
