I know of many adherents to the Word of Faith/Proserity Gospel are now filing bankruptcy due to their walk out in faith to get home they couldn’t afford, cars they couldn’t afford, and jewelry they couldn’t afford. These pastors, like Larry Dean Stockstill, claim that if you give over and beyond and step out in faith, you’ll be blessed without a doubt. Yet, this message has turned many against Christianity and have created a surge in homes being foreclosed, cars repossessed, utilities unpaid, savings depleted, and christians disgruntled.
