Description: The Prosperity and Health & Wealth cults propagate the belief that Jesus was rich and died poor so that we may be rich, successful, influential and happy in this life. A defining doctrine of prosperity cults is the binding, anti-Christian tithe doctrine. This doctrine teaches that if you do not tithe to God, you are cursed by God himself or bound by the devil/devourer/creditor.

(NOTE: While the WOF may be prosperity focused, they emphasise speaking prosperity into existence and pop-psychology practices. The HAW movement teach you must tithe to obtain prosperity among other rituals or formulas.)

Beginnings: Unknown.
