Acts 14:22…”‘We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,’ they said.” Paul and Barnabus were preaching the gospel and encouraging the believers in Lystra, Iconium and Antioch (South Galatia then, Turkey today). For prosperity gospel teachers/preachers here again is a portion of scripture exposing their heretical view that suffering is not for the Christian. According to the bible, not only are we guaranteed to suffer in this life (1 Peter 1:6-7), it MUST happen for us to enter the kingdom of God. This is how the Lord tests our faith, and according to James 1:2-4, it’s how he makes us more like Christ. Flee from any teacher who is telling you that suffering should not be part of this life for the Christian. Just because they weave in some scripture to their messages doesn’t mean they are safe to follow. Their gospel is fool’s gold, and the false hope they peddle includes perfect health and abundant wealth in this life. Our real treasure if we’re saved is Christ, and we look forward to being with Him forever in heaven.
