Prosperity Gospel or Proverbs 30:7-9?

John MacArthur has posted on one page a wonderful series of Grace to You blog posts called Blog Series: The Lies of the Prosperity Gospel. It always amazes me how the false teachers (Prosperity Gospel, Dominionism, Emergent church, etc.) twist Scriptures out of context. MOST of the time, if you go to the Word, as you should (Acts 17:11) you will find they used Scripture in ways completely unrelated to what God's Word says.

On the other hand, prosperity theology flies in the face of Scripture.

Proverbs 30:7-9 is just one example. A prayer, NOT for riches, but for whatever will keep him glorifying God. For this we were created, not for big houses, big cars and big hair!

7 Two things I asked of You, Do not refuse me before I die:
8 Keep deception and lies far from me, Give me neither poverty nor riches; Feed me with the food that is my portion,
9 That I not be full and deny You and say, “Who is the Lord?” Or that I not be in want and steal, And profane the name of my God.
