Christian Science and “prosperity gospel teachings” are poles apart!

Evan Mehlenbacher’s lecture “Living in abundance” is a great talk to watch for anyone who has ever confused the God-centred Christian Science approach to healing problems with “supply” to the “me-centred” attitudes of the “prosperity gospels”.  The video is an hour-long Christian Science lecture on facing down all kinds of problems, including financial problems, through a prayerful understanding of God’s all-loving nature, and it is all good stuff!  If you only have a few minutes to spare, however, and are curious to understand why Christian Science isn’t a prosperity gospel approach to problem-solving, scroll forward to 38 minutes into the lecture.

Thanks for a great talk, Evan!
