The documentary American Gospel explains it well. You can watch an hour of it free on YouTube. Many people that go to church have not even read the Bible or taken the time to study it and understand it. So, they get caught up in the prosperity gospel and the New Age Spirituality practices and still believe they are Christians. Many people think that because they believe in Jesus Christ that they are going to heaven even though they are living a “worldly” lifestyle. I believed the same thing.
I used to get an emotional high from feel good prosperity sermons from pastors like Joel Osteen. Just think positive and feel good and what ever you ask for you will receive. It’s an trap that many of us fall into.
