Authentic Discipleship

Main Article Content

David Lumpp

Abstract

The prosperity gospels must be considered first in the context of authentic discipleship, which is herein defined and unfolded thematically (from both Old and New Testaments) as a life of worship; devotion and loyalty in the form of faithfulness, renunciation, mercy, and love; and self-sacrifice.  So understood, such discipleship is the antithesis of personal status, worldly privilege, and/or temporal power--in other words, it is the antithesis of the kinds of status, privilege, and power falsely claimed by the prosperity gospels.
