In May, 2008 a missionary serving in Italy was thrilled to see his first Italian convert after four years of ministry in one small town. After this young man trusted Christ, he was thrown out of his house by his Roman Catholic father for “wasting his life.”

The prosperity preachers in America cnanot identify with this kind of testimiony. According to the prosperity gospel, God wants you to be well, happy and content. This young man came to Christ and discovered difficulty, not prosperity. He understands what Jesus meant when he said, "For I have come to turn “‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law" (Matthew 10:35, NIV).
