Description

The concept of wealth prosperity centred Christianity is often reasoned by many as a belated discovery of an integral part of the reality of Christianity. Some other schools of thought, notable of the Old generation orthodoxy, decry the trend. In the distant past, Christianity was a religion on welfarism. It was the welfare of the soul, where the objective of the preacher and the laity was to find rest to the soul in the bosom of our Lord God. Now, Christianity is still based on welfarism. It is rather the welfarism of the material wellbeing. It is even considered a superior welfarism, which mocks at the old ways of the soul, and claims it is a factor of lack of learnedness in the scriptures. It has its roots in Judaism, far into the Bible days: And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him. And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. (Luke 16:13-15) ...Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled. Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed. (John 6:26-27)show more

About Godfrey Okoro Godfrey

Godfrey Okoro Godfrey, is a brilliant writer and an author of many books. He has continued to pursue his passion for truth in a world of many contradictory religious views, that has come to make religion a gate-way to hell. With many adherents blinded by faith, most of which are unfounded, Godfrey embraces religion with the empiricism and objectivity that the Lord God wants man to exercise to be able to sieve the truth in a world ruled by religious bigotry . Godfrey has held many positions of importance in the church, and has been a member of some church groups. Thus he may be defined as experienced in many matters relating to the church. Godfrey was a victim of the influence of erroneous church doctrine, and understands the multi-dimensional approached to this. He therefore makes every effort to save the world from the snares of religious bigotry.show more
