Failed Gospel Tract
by Lee Shelton IV, 02 Mar 2009

Mark 8:34-36
If anyone would come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it. What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?
Phil 1:20, 21
I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
John Piper re-posted this pic on 19 Apr, with the title "Corrective Tract for the Prosperity Gospel".

Guess his point was, where is the place of suffering and persecution in the theology of churches that promotes the "health and wealth" or prosperity gospel?

What says you?
