Photo ~Joel Osteen is an American preacher, televangelist, author, and the Pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas. His ministry reaches over seven million broadcast media viewers weekly in over 100 nations around the world. The prosperity preacher from Houston has just moved up from his $2m mansion to a $10m mansion.
According to Joel Osteen – Pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, these first century apostles are wrong and outdated and he has come out boldly to infer indirectly that Apostles Paul, Peter, and John whom wrote much of the New Testament were wrong and need to be corrected and rebuked.
When asked directly if people whom are openly practicing homosexuals are accepted into the Kingdom, Joel Osteen responded with “Absolutely, anybody is.”
We all need to listen carefully to the words that this “man of God” speaks as he goes on interviews so we too can find the errors in the preaching of the first century apostles.
Joel does acknowledge that some things are “sin” but says, “I don’t address these things from the pulpit. They only come up in interviews.” When asked if openly practicing gay/homosexual people will be accepted into heaven, Joel Osteen responded, “I believe they will.”
I don't mean to be a Debbie Downer, but the language quality of this piece is pretty bad. It reads like my 7th grader wrote it in an attempt to sound more educated than she actually is, and I should hope Gloria.TV would take the five minutes necessary to proofread this before publishing.
The author uses the object pronoun 'whom' twice, and both times it's wrong. Who wrote much of the New Testament? Paul, Peter, and John did. Just as you wouldn't say "Them wrote it." you wouldn't say "whom … [More]
I guess he DOESN'T read the bible. I'll help him with a couple of references from GOD. If he DOESN'T listen then we'll know he's NOT a man of GOD. So he must be one of those false people Christ warned us about.
Leviticus 20:13 If a man has sexual relations with another man, they have done a disgusting thing, and both shall be put to death. They are responsible for their own death.
Leviticus 18:22 ---> No man is to have sexual relations with another man; God hates that.
Smiley Wolf in sheep clothing, Apostles Paul,John,Peter who wrote the New Testament were inspired by the Holy Spirit of God and everything included in the Bible.Your claim that they were wrong and need to be corrected and rebuked.You should change your Lakewood Church to Lakewood "Hell" when you deny the Holy Spirit of God. Satan you will burn in hell.
Perfect example of not saying anything too controversial but just enough to make people feel Christian so the donations roll in. What a disservice to people seeking the Truth. Con men are always likeable, charming, and persuasive.
