Will it preach?

A Photographic Art Exhibit on the Word Faith "Gospel"

So-called Christian preachers are living in extravagant wealth while preaching a self-centered ‘gospel’ of prosperity. Two of the most popular proponents of this false gospel of wealth and self-centeredness are Joel Osteen and Paula White. We’ve taken the artwork for their ‘messages’ and taken them out of their American context to see if they will “preach” in war torn Iraq, Darfur and Rwanda.

Paula White’s message is “Celebrate You”.
Joel Osteen’s message is “Your Best Life Now”

Compare this to the Message of Biblical Gospel

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus...” - Romans 3:23-24

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” - John 3:16 -17
