Prosperity Gospel

Those who don't have enough, or the have-nots, seem to be attracted to the prosperity gospel.  One can always find a bible quote, the one here being, "I have come to give you life, and to give it more abundantly."  There is no service commitment to one's neighbor, or the suffering person here.  John 10:10 translates into, "Ask not for what you can do for God, but what God can do for you."  Religion can then become the art of the ultimate deal, in this case with God.  Maybe one tithes, or attends services, but always to get something back.  I am more drawn to the cheerful giver.  I am not one, but am a wannabe.  I would like to prosper in love.  It is a work in progress.
