I was delighted to be joined by Dr. Richard C. Leonard to discuss some articles he had written defending the Prosperity Gospel. In truth, it has been hard for me to find someone willing to defend the Prosperity Gospel, so I really appreciate him coming on and arguing for it. My main contention is that neither a "Prosperity" Gospel or a "Poverty" Gospel are THE Gospel. I think you'll find the exchange respectful and interesting.
Why the name “Sin Boldly”? Martin Luther wrote to his friend Philip Melanchthon in 1521: “If you are a preacher of mercy, do not preach an imaginary but the true mercy. If the mercy is true, you must therefore bear the true, not an imaginary sin. God does not save those who are only imaginary sinners. Be a sinner, and let your sins be strong [sin boldly], but let your trust in Christ be stronger, and rejoice in Christ who is the victor over sin, death, and the world.” To sin boldly, therefore, is not to seek unholy living, but to follow the course we believe the Bible demands even if the world is against us. And if and when we sin, trust in an even greater savior.
