Prosperity Gospel

From Kook Science

Prosperity Gospel is an interpretation of the Bible, originating in American Pentecostalism and New Thought, that holds prosperity in this world, in the forms of financial wealth and physical health, is the guaranteed reward of faith, and thus that the prosperous are divinely blessed, as the providential inheritors of grace, and, in consequence, the impoverished may be thus seen to be sinners and accursed through their own lack of faith.
