OK, after seeing these adverts on the bus, I saw another advert on a bus yesterday and to be honest it made me quite mad. I saw KICC’s advert about ‘Empowered to Prosper’. Well to be honest I just saw the word ‘Prosper’ as those were the words that were large and that could be seen from where I was. Click here for details of this event. For those who dont know KICC is the UK’s largest church.

This is such a misrepresentation of the gospel and it plays on peoples desires for material gain

Can you not see the vast difference in the adverts? And I always say this. Compare the messages on the two buses and you will see that the big giveaway is that KICCs message is man-centered.

The event is based on Deuteronomy 8:18: But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is He that giveth thee power to get wealth…

On the link, scripture is twisted when it says

Many believers are caught in a trap of lack. This is a direct contradiction to the Word of God which states that God wants us to prosper and be in health even as our souls prosper.

This is taken from 3 John 1:2 which is simply a greeting, our version of ‘I hope everything is well with you’ and should not be used as a doctrine on prosperity. (Bro Phil expands on this nicely here). Well that means that the apostle Paul was not a good example of a christian for us. His ministry was marked by suffering and not prosperity. But of course, thats not a popular message today

This is NOT the gospel of Jesus Christ

  1. Alan,

    Excellent example of what I consider “cherry picking”. These wolves will try anything to convince people that they are supposed to prosper financially….

    This dude used to live in my backyard so to speak. Their former “megachurch” building is like 5 minutes on foot from where I live.
    KICC is an embarassment to the Gospe of Jesus Christ, but hey, anything to bring in the money right???

    Sorry if I’ve missed it but I couldn’t see anywhere above what KICC stands for..? Is it anything to do with the Kensington Temple? – Hopefully not, my ex pastor came from there!

    I also wasn’t aware ‘Word of faith’ preachers travelled about so much – I see TD Jakes is on the guest list!?

  4. Alan Higgins says:

    Laura, it stands for Kingsway International Christian Centre. Yes, every year they bring in the ‘big names’ at this annual event

  5. Stephen Olan says:

    KT had Rodney Howard Browne a few years back so Colin Dye and co are not too far off.

    *Shaking my head*

    Why is Cash-imolowo promoting prosperity more than the GOSPEL? A true church would advertise Christ instead of earthly prosperity.
