12 “I want to pray over your seed and it would be ridiculous for me to pray that God give it back to you.

But God is going to give you some more on top of that....” Don McClain 13 W. 65th St church of Christ - May 25, 2008

23 “I'd always quoted 3 John 2, saying, "Above all things God wants you to prosper.“ I loved that Scripture.

24 “I began to look up all the Scriptures used in prosperity teaching, such as "Give and it shall be given unto you."

He was teaching us that by the same measure that we forgive, we will be forgiven.” Don McClain 24 W. 65th St church of Christ - May 25, 2008
