I Really Do Hate the Prosperity 'Gospel'

My Sunday School class had a discussion on the prosperity gospel last week.  They all know how I feel about it (I hate it), but not all have heard many explanations beyond the very brief as to why I hate it.

This short video clip is from John Piper, and illustrates through a video-style interpretation a short clip from one of his sermons on the problems with the prosperity gospel.

I don't think I can make it much clearer than that, other than to try to get folks to read all the passages replete in both testaments of scripture on how suffering is part of God's plan, and not punishment for sin or lack of faith.
