Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The fast growing Mormon church even seems to equate material success with divine favour. Church of Mammon, more likely.

I don't know about the Mormons, but prospority theology is a Christian thing.

Prosperity theology (sometimes referred to as the prosperity gospel, the health and wealth gospel, or the gospel of success) is a religious belief among some Christians, who hold that financial blessing and physical well-being are always the will of God for them, and that faith, positive speech, and donations to religious causes will increase one's material wealth. Prosperity theology views the Bible as a contract between God and humans: if humans have faith in God, he will deliver security and prosperity.

Oh it's definitely true of the Mormons.  I'm in the front row and front line here.
