- voice of a Namibian Christian in obedience to the WORD.

The apostle Paul is very clear about what constitutes the Gospel (the Good News)*.

"Now I make known unto you brethren, the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye received, wherein also ye stand,
by which also ye are saved, if ye hold fast the word which I preached unto you, except ye believed in vain.
For I delivered unto you first of all that which also I received: that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
and that he was buried; and that he hath been raised on the third day according to the scriptures;" (1 Corinthians 15:1-4)

Myles Munroe differed from this. (Click on Munroe's "gospel")

Munroe not only clashed with Paul, but with Jesus Himself who clearly taught that His whole purpose of coming was the cross in order to save sinners from their sins that they might inherit an eternal kingdom! While on earth we already honour and love our King... and can be sure of suffering for His name! We endure this with joy, because our present afflictions can't be compared with the glory to be revealed! (Romans 8:18ff)


The health and wealth preachers do not preach the gospel about the redemption from sin through the merits of Christ, but a diluted message which connects with the sinful man's ambitions to obtain greatness for himself. It is not a cross message aimed at the glory of God but rather a tower of Babel motivational talk, helping man to become great!

"Born in one of the poorest suburbs in the Bahamas, Munroe rose to prominence as a preacher, motivational speaker, consultant and leadership mentor with a multi-million business empire."

Yes, maybe a successful businessman, but has he ever preached the Gospel?
