Increasingly evangelical Christians are attracted by the so-called health, wealth and prosperity "gospel." The central claim of this teaching is that a true believer in Christ can count on being blessed by God in all areas of life. Accordingly a believer should not have to be sick and will lead a long, wealthy and prosperous life. Since Christ has conquered sin, Christians no longer have to experience the consequences of sin: pain, suffering and poverty.
