Cabins in the Corner of Gloryland

It is so refreshing to observe the spirituality of word of faith prosperity preachers. Jesus said (John 14:2 NIV) “My Father’s house has many rooms.” But the mark it and park it crowd is apparently better off here on earth than they will be their father’s house in heaven. (See the above houses, in order clockwise, of Kenneth Copeland, Creflo Dollar, Benny Hinn, and Joel Osteen).

The scream it and redeem it boys have even figured out how to be more spiritual than Jesus. After all, Jesus said himself he didn’t have anywhere to lay his head. But the blab it and grab it bunch have got plenty of places to lay their heads!

The call it and haul it guys have provided a great advance in American Christian spirituality. Remember the bad old days when somebody could sing “A Cabin in the Corner of Gloryland,” and no one would call him out for his lack of faith and his poverty complex?

Don’t need no mansions, nor earth’s sinking sand
Just give me a cabin in the corner of glory land.

One wonders if the earth might sink around the palaces of the speak it and keep it crowd. If it might open up and swallow the inhabitants whole, like Korah and his rebels. The rest of us could cordon off the area, sell tickets, and get rich, too. And wouldn’t that be fun?
