Quote of The Day: On The Prosperity Gospel III

Joel Osteen, Prosperity Gospel, Theology of Glory, Theology of the CrossSo who needs Christ?  At least, who needs Christ as “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (Jn 1:29)? The sting of the law may be taken out of the message, but that only means that the gospel has become a less demanding, more encouraging law whose exhortations are only meant to make us happy, not to measure us against God’s holiness.
