Text: Mark 13:1-23
“But be on your guard. For they will deliver you over to councils, and you will be beaten in synagogues, and you will stand before governors and kings for my sake, to bear witness before them." Mark 13:9
Scriptures like Mark 13 are the reason why I'm so adamantly opposed to the so-called "prosperity gospel." The "prosperity gospel," also known as the "health and wealth gospel" or the "Word of Faith" movement, claims that God rewards increases in faith with increases in health and/or wealth.
