I know this picture has been floating around for sometime, but I wanted to post it here for anyone who has not seen it yet. It is, of course, a picture of Christians in the Roman coliseum about to become martyred for their faith. If you read Hebrews 11:35b-38 you can see that people of faith sometimes end this life in a fashion that is less than desirable. The error of the ‘prosperity gospel’ is that those who proclaim it appear to think that vv. 33-35a where the author’s only word on the subject of living by faith.
