Editorial Reviews

Presumptuous or prophetic, Brian Houston takes the bull by the horns and addresses a subject that affects everyone. His sharp wit and clear perspective tackle the various attitudes and perceptions on wealth and prosperity, dealing with wrong thinking passed through religious tradition. Money is a powerful tool in the hands of Bible-believing purpose-driven Christians. Brian challenges you to look beyond yourself, live according to the principles of God and see His blessing on your life as you become a money magnet.

In this book the pastor of Hillsong Church in Sydney shares his concerns about money. He believes that Christians have a low view of money and wealth. He believes we should not only have a positive view of these things, but that we should enjoy them as well. As such his book offers an Australian spin on a unique American teaching that has developed over the past several decades known as the Prosperity Gospel

Pastor Houston is concerned that many Christians have a `poverty mentality' which keeps them from enjoying all of God's blessings. This may well be true for some: just as there are those who take pride in their great wealth, there are some believers who take pride in their poverty. But in materialistic, consumeristic Australia, I would guess that the real danger is not thinking negatively about money - it is thinking about it too much. That is, most Australian Christians, like most Australian pagans, are far too materialistic and money-hungry.

According to You Need More Money, much of the problem of those Christians who are struggling financially comes from their negative thoughts about money. If they would only think and speak positively about wealth, much of the problem would disappear. Now there is some truth to the positive confession teaching. Even secular folks recognise that having a healthy positive attitude can be helpful. A person who keeps telling himself that he is lousy will probably act and feel lousy. But applying this to health and wealth becomes problematic when held up to Scripture. We have no record of Paul telling the poor saints of Jerusalem to just stop their negative thoughts about money. He does not chew them out for being outside of God's perfect will for their lives. Instead, he takes up a collection for their needs.

There are many interpretation problems in this book. The author has not seriously studied the Scriptures, but simply read into them whatever he so desired. There is not one reference to any commentator in the whole book or any other scholarly resource. The author has greatly disrespected Scripture. He has skewed interpretations of the parable of the prodigal son, numerous verses in Proverbs, the rich young ruler, etc.

I would suggest to not buy this book, because that way, you'll have more money!

In this book, Houston teaches that the Bible tells us that God promises us health, wealth and prosperity, which is DEFINITELY DOES NOT! Houston misinterprets the Bible and joins the long list of tv evangelist scammers who are touting the "prosperity gospel". Sadly, these "Asssemblies of God" Pentecostal preachers are all moving into the "Word Faith" cult of prosperity teachings. It is no longer about Jesus but about money and riches. Houston joins the likes of Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth Hagin, Paul Crouch and the rest of the swindlers.

Please do not support Brian Houston, Hillsong Church or their band, Hillsong United.
