Did Jesus Come to Give us Prosperity, Spiritual Encounters and Abundance?

The link to the longer video is found here:

John 10:10 says: “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” In the New Age, this scripture (among many others) I heard used regularly to promote the idea that Jesus taught that His purpose was to give us a prosperous and abundant life, overflowing with blessings and riches on Earth… But is that what it *really* means?

A constant question I get asked is what scriptures really mean when they’re misused in such ways by so many. I asked Mike to come on my channel a while ago and break down 10 of the most misused scriptures from the Word of Faith camp and the New Age. I gave him the scripture and explained how it’s interpreted by someone in the New Age and Word of Faith. The then breaks down the passage and explains what it actually means.

There are a lot of scriptures that are used to support WoF (Word of Faith) new age/new thought teachings. This is just one and the ones that I see mostly misused in churches and from new age/new thought teachers.

About The Author

Melissa Dougherty I'm a Christian artist who loves apologetics and Jesus! A lot of my videos are aimed at the newer Christian helping them understand tough questions about Christianity in a simple, loving and fun way, while not compromising Scripture. I'm an ex new ager, and have been in a counter cult ministry to Mormons and Jehovah's witnesses, so many of my videos will appeal to my background in it. I just started actually using my YouTube channel in the fall of 2018. So far so good! Thank you to everyone who supports anything I do on here. My channel is a mix of both apologetics and one of my passions: painting. You'll see some art here, some Jesus there... It's who I am.
