Prosperity Gospel #1: Net worth $800 million
Heat-embossed velvet, Artistic Churchware® brand offering plate, and LED string light
12 x 12 x 3 inches

Prosperity theology proposes, among other things, that material and financial wealth are acts of divine favor directly from God. In his piece Prosperity Gospel, Fields has heat-embossed the faces of the 5 wealthiest American pastors onto previously-used, authentic church offering plates. LED lights illuminate the backs of the plates with a heavenly glow. Each piece is then titled simply with that pastor’s estimated net worth.

How much would you pay for eternal salvation? Would you be able to afford it?
