Among the heroes of faith in Hebrews 11, some claimed their rewards on earth, while others had to suffer, were persecuted or killed, and failed to realise their rewards on earth. But, all heroes of faith—past or present—will eventually claim their rewards when they pass into eternity.
At this juncture, it would be appropriate, to let this passage indicting those who love the world—epitomised by the proponents and adherents of the ‘prosperity gospel’ —to speak for itself:
The question we need to ask is whether prosperity gospel proponents are really doing God’s will or are they loving the world and using religion as a means to prosper themselves at the expense of their followers? Are they akin to those whom Paul described—people “depraved in mind and deprived of the truth, imagining that godliness is a means of gain" (1 Timothy 6:5)?
