Moralistic Therapeutic Deism is Not Christianity

What is Moralistic Therapeutic Deism?

Moralistic Therapeutic Deism (MTD) defines God as a “cosmic therapist” who wants us to be kind and happy. MTD has the following belief system:

  1. God is real, and he watches over to ensure we’re happy and fulfilled.
  2. He wants us to be kind and take care of others as well.
  3. Life’s purpose is towards man’s happiness and fulfillment.
  4. God does not involve himself in men’s life unless needed.
  5. Good people go to heaven when they die.

MTD is lukewarm Christianity

Although they use the Judeo-Christian Bible in their faith, their definition of God and His intentions are Luciferian by nature. Atheists, Freethinkers, and Progressive fake-preachers follow the same path—we should be happy, devoid of accountability.

Somewhere in between true Christianity and atheism is MTD. It’s lukewarm Christianity whose end goal is “I, me, and myself.” Isn’t that Luciferian enough?

Examples of MTD

Joseph Prince said, “You are destined to reign in life… I want you to know that it is not the Lord’s desire that you live a life of defeat, poverty, and failure.” In contrast, Jesus said “…In this world, you will have trouble.”

Oprah Winfrey and Joel Osteen

Oprah Winfrey is a kind and sincere person. She believes there are many paths to God, aside from Jesus. Like Joel Osteen, they preach on “positivism,” that God’s desire for us is to be free from hardship and live a happy and prosperous life.

Part of the reason people embrace MTD is because of the promise of wealth, hence prosperity gospel. But Jesus said the opposite, “We should not seek after these.” (Matthew 6:19-21)

Non-denominational Christian church in the USA, Lakewood church, who promotes prosperity gospel.
