The Desires Of The Flesh

Needs a lot of square footage. What a wanker.

But this post, which links to a NY Times article pointing out the sordid details of the lifestyles of the rich and infamous only highlights the truth about the prosperity gospels, all prosperity accrues to the top. Hardly an imitation of Christ, but a demonstration of the traditions of men.

It also highlights the fact that the sins of the flesh are not exclusively sexual in nature. For birds have boughs and foxes have dens, but the son of man has nowhere to lay his head. According to the prosperity gospel, apparently these men are more favored by God than Christ.
