Success, Sorcery and Prosperity Gospel Dangers

A closer look at Quantum Faith, Positivism, Mind Power, Law of Success, Positive Confession, Creative Force and Money Preachers

What is a successful Christian ministry? Does it include false teaching, making merchandise of people, and invoking occult powers in the name of "Jesus"? Are Christians really called to "create your own reality" and "name it and claim it" and "write your own ticket with God"?

This instructive biblical seminar explains the dangers of Old/New Age occult practices masquerading as the Word of Faith movement, otherwise known as the Prosperity Gospel. It also soberly clarifies God’s condemnation upon all occult practices, including those that are hijacked from the world of the occult and “Christianized.”
