Join us as we skewer the deception behind this movement of twisted Christianity. Are we right on or completely wrong? Tune in to find out.

John Oliver vs Prosperity Gospel

Talk about hitting the nail on the flippin’ head. John Oliver does it again.

The prosperity gospel has been a favorite target of mine over at Snarky Faith Radio. Not only is it a fun (and regular) punching bag, it’s also messing up people’s lives and denigrating those actual churches who are doing good work in communities. Snake oil salesmen? Perhaps, but I’d liken them more to those peddling ponzi schemes on Wall Street. It’s a straight up cash grab in the name of Jesus.

It boggles my mind that you can still call an organization ‘non-profit’ when your pastor/CEO is making at least a million dollars a year. Doesn’t sound much like suffering for the Gospel.

Any thoughts about what should be done about this?
