Is the gospel of prosperity part of the Bible?
In this respect we want to address those to whom the word of the Bible is unreservedly regarded as the inspired word of God and who are therefore ready to accept it as this. Because “All scriptures are inspired by God (that is, inspired by God) and useful for instruction, conviction, correction, and education in righteousness; that the man of God may be prepared, equipped for every good work”(New Testament,Paul's second letter to Timothy, chapter 3, verses 16-17). In this context we cannot avoid making it clear that without a clear turn to the Lord Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for our sins and rose again, according to the statements of the Holy Scriptures it will not be possible to do spiritual things at all detect; the Bible clearly states that anyone who wants to understand anything about the kingdom of God must first be spiritually born again. “The human soul, however, accepts nothing from the depths of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness to him. And he cannot know them because they can only be explored spiritually” (First letter of Paul to the Corinthians, Chapter 2, verse 14).

1.1. The tithe lie. Approx. 130 A4 pages in four chapters.
Please read for yourself.
„God no longer blesses if I don't tithe.“We will investigate this question in a smaller treatise on about 10 pages and thus come primarily to speak of God's ordinances regarding the provision of the members of the New Covenant - the church. How did the development come about as we largely have it today? What wrong paths are there, how can we leave them, and which path should we take? The whole thing can be read as a supplement to the above text, but certainly also separately for those who have a little less time, but still want to deal with the topic.

2. The reins of God - On the error of belief in vision. Approx. 8 A4 pages.
This is about the statement that has become widespread in many charismatic, Pentecostal and religious communities that a church has a “vision” need in order not to become self-indulgent and to stay on God's way. Is this belief actually based on what the scriptures say, or is it based on a misinterpretation? What is to be made of it?

3. Rich and poor - the judge at the doors. Approx. 25 A4 pages.
Thoughts on the letter of James taking into account various doctrines of the so-called faith movement. With notes.
What is wisdom Why is active charity so very important? How does God think of us when we put our desires above the needs and needs of our neighbors? May we say that we are in the sight of God „correct” because we are wealthier than others, and thus condemn those who have nothing? What does God's Word say about those that exist in many circles „Prosperity” really?

4. From the Way of Cain or The Wounded Love. Approx. 11 pages A4.
Thoughts on the Temple of God.
Is sacrifice more important to God than love for brother and sister? The Bible firmly denies this. What is church, and what are the members of which you consists? Whom shall we serve? Do we have to help in any case, and what are the limits? What about the path of Cain, and where does fratricide begin? How can we prevent bitterness in our siblings' lives?
5. Don't you know? You are the temple! Approx. 20 A4 pages.
Thoughts on the concept of the church in the New Testament.
With numerous notes and comments in the appendix.
How did the church come about that the Bible describes not only as the body of Christ but also as the spiritual temple of God? How should the term “local church”, which is much used today, be assessed? What is church really, and where do sects start? Why are there so many different churches and names when God wanted his own to be one? Isn't it the many names that do the body split and split?

7. The assignment of heads - thoughts about man and woman
A meditation on Ephesians 5. 22-31. Approximately 9 pages A4.
What Does Scripture Really Say About Marriage, Heading, and Submission? What does it mean when Paul writes that woman is subordinate to man, but that man should love her just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her? Both are therefore mutually dependent and belong very closely together! Is it still love when submission is simply demanded? This publication would also like to do away with common prejudices and indeed centuries-old, but still wrong, doctrinal concepts in this area!
The dividing wall * Israel desires a king: apostasy from the living God and the right to kings (taken from “The Tithing Lie”) * “Schools of the Prophets” and “Discipleship Doctrine” - Old or New Covenant? * Elia and Elisa: When will “Your Elia” be taken from you? * Of the sons of the prophets and other stupidities * Of the incompetence of God's called: "Woe to me - I am perishing!" * Untrained and ignorant, but together with Jesus: Do you desire Him?
Of the peace of God or: When the order is turmoil * Be silent when the brother speaks: From the part of the whole to the whole of the parts * Decency, expression of love * two ways * pay attention to the brothers: look up, don't look down * the poured drink: from death to life * support of friends, distance in blessing: see! * Distance, the pride of Sunday speakers * One over all, all through all, all in all
Robbed and led away: Apathy, the silent cry for help * The service of death: Frozen pillars of salt * From wounding to healing: guard your heart * Spiritual attitude: victory over death * „...and the LORD my Lord are the outcomes of death”
