What is the Prosperity Gospel…Really?

I know that Religious Science and other New Thought theologies have been labeled as the Prosperity Gospel theology. I read some derogatory remarks and essays about this, stating that this was an “evil” thing and not at all aligned in what God really means in our lives.  I don’t want to get into all that, but I would like to express what I know is the Truth for me.

I really don’t care what others think about what I believe. I know my intentions. I don’t need anyone’s approval. I only know what has worked in assisting me to have a full and loving life. I also know that through my example I have assisted many people who have struggled in this life. I’ve assisted and continue to assist in guiding them back to their true selves, that self which is Power, Light, Love, Joy Beauty, Life and Wisdom. With all these attributes as the essence of who we are there is nothing standing in the way of living a magnificent life filled with health, wealth, amazing relationships and full creative expression. If this is the Prosperity Gospel, then I say “amen”

The world has lived too long in suffering and turmoil. I do not see that it has made us greater or closer to God. A new dawn is coming. People are waking up to their power, their voice. Heaven is here if we choose it. The Divine Presence cannot be submerged anymore.

To me, the Prosperity Gospel is this: I am an individualized point where the Infinite Universe expresses. I am an individualized expression of Divinity, a Divine Idea in the Mind of God/Source. Because of this, I have the freedom of choice to co-create the life I desire. I paint my life every day with my thoughts in action. There is nothing in my way besides myself and my belief about myself.

I believe we are God getting to know Itself through us – as a flower, as a person, as a whale in the ocean. God expresses and that is Love – the self livingness of the Spirit in terms of creation. If there were a such a thing as the Prosperity Gospel I would say it is what Jesus taught. It is what the Buddha taught. It is what all the great mystics taught. I and God our one. As I recognize this I just can’t help wanting to express more and more of it. As I expand into It, It is bound to bring me into a state of health and wealth. However, let’s not mix it up. I’m not seeking health and wealth. I am seeking to get to know and express God in my own unique way in expansion.

Love and Aloha,

Rev. Rita
