Prosperity theology has remained a religious phenomenon contemporary Christianity still contends with. This teaching is justified by those who argue that Jesus came to liberate the “poor” from the bondage of poverty and brought healing to all areas of a believer’s life. Healing, it is believed, was linked to the work of Christ on the cross and demonstrated his victory over all forms of affliction. The Prosperity Gospel is the doctrine that God wants people to be prosperous, especially financially. Adherents to the Prosperity Gospel believe that wealth is a sign of God’s blessing and the poor are poor because of a lack of faith. Those who are less educated, however, are more likely to seek out Prosperity messages. Overall, the Prosperity Gospel is a flexible theology that is well suited to be adapted to varying social locations, particularly in a society like Nigeria.
