10. The Prosperity Doctrine teaches that the parable of the sower promises that if you give money to the church God will return it to you 30, 60 or 100 fold.   The parable is actually talking about:

A.           Multiplying your money

B.           Winning souls to Christ

C.           Growing food

D.           Jesus performing a miracle



Matthew 13:18-23

18“Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: 19When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path. 20The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. 21But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. 22The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful. 23But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”



B. Winning souls to Christ



  • This scripture is used out of context to imply that if you give money to the church God has promised to multiply it.  Jesus clearly explained that the parable is about winning souls for Christ..

Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed; and in this I rejoice.
