  The Real Gospel vs. The "Prosperity Gospel"
I have always had problems with the so-called "prosperity gospel" and it's proponents, like Robert Tilton. The prosperity they seem most interested in is their own and their isn't much emphasis on the gospel, that is, the good news that Jesus Christ died to redeem us from our sins.

The latest "star" in this version of "Christianity" is Joel Osteen. Now, when I first saw Osteen on television his style was very charismatic - all "aw shucks" bumpkinism and "God loves yew!" There was a noticeable lack of real Bible teaching and no call to repentance. A lot of "God has a wonderful plan for your life," but missing the "No man comes to the Father but by me."

Brad Huston at "Broken Messenger" really tackles Osteen and his reluctance to preach the real Gospel. I urge you to go visit. Read his other posts while your there. You might learn something. At the very least it will give you something to think about.
