The gospel of wealth and other timely essays

Many in the word-faith movement treat God as if He is a God simply there only to cater to our every wish as we ask it and that His entire purpose in heaven is simply to do our bidding. Kenneth Hagin has even written a little booklet entitled, " How to write your own ticket with God ". This is the same presupposition that Charles Fillmore of  Unity School of Christianity  had with regard to prosperity. H. Terris Newman, writing in  Pneuma: The Journal of the Society for Pentecostal Studies , Vol. 12, No. 1, Spring 1990, p. 45, records Fillmore's rendition of Psalm 23: "The Lord is may banker; my credit is good. He maketh me to lie down in the consciousness of omnipresent abundance; He giveth me the key to His strong box; He restoreth my faith in His riches; He guideth me in the paths of prosperity for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk in the very shadow of debt, I shall fear no evil, for Thou art with me; Thou preparest a way for me in the presence of the collector; Thou fillest my wallet with plenty; my measure runneth over. Surely goodness and plenty will follow me all the days of my life, And I shall do business in the name of the Lord forever."

Words of wisdom from American philanthropist Andrew Carnegie

Focusing on Carnegie’s most famous essay, “The Gospel of Wealth,” this book of his writings, published here together for the first time, demonstrates the late steel magnate’s beliefs on wealth, poverty, the public good, and capitalism. Carnegie’s commitment to ensuring and promoting the welfare of his fellow human beings through philanthropic deeds ranged from donations to universities and museums to establishing more than 2,500 public libraries in the English-speaking world, and he gave away more than $350 million toward those efforts during his lifetime. The Gospel of Wealth is an eloquent testament to the importance of charitable giving for the public good.
