ATTENTION OSTEEN DEFENDER: Simple challenge: Please provide literal proof – in his own words – that Joel Osteen is preaching the original Gospel of Christ. Do YOU even know what the Gospel is? Do you realize that Osteen is “accursed” for speaking something other than the original Gospel – a new age message? (Galatians 1:6-9) Are you aware that you only like Osteen because you are still serving the god of self and have not truly repented? You like him because he is telling you what YOU want to hear instead of what God says.
Joel Osteen has been a false prophet from the very beginning of his “ministry.” He’s become rich off of those who want their ears tickled (2 Timothy 4:2-4).
Naturally, most of us want to believe that most pastors and leaders in the modern church are true. But such is not true and we must be transformed in our thinking. Jesus and the apostle John use the words “MANY false prophets” and never, not once do we read the words “many true prophets” (Matthew 7:15; 1 John 4:1). So we need not play the “nice guy” but rather the biblical guy and know that most leaders are false, by deduction. Foretelling this final hour, the apostle Paul writes: “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” (2 Timothy 3:13) Predators in Our Pulpits
Any person who believes Joel Osteen is a Christian pastor or even a Christian, is completely deceived and knows nothing of what God’s Word, the Bible, teachers.
Those who follow Jesus lay down their lives – denying self, taking up the cross, and following Him – as He prescribed (Luke 9:23-24).
JESUS never panders to your whining whims. No, that’s what wolves like Osteen (and MANY others) do in order to seduce, control, and use you! Examples: 1. Think of how the demoNcrats promise and give away everyone else’s money in order to get themselves votes. 2. Think about how deceitful false leaders make promises God never made – such as perpetrating the lie of un-conditional promise (God’s promises are conditional). Think about how charlatans promise that God is going to give them a lot of money if they give to that ministry. Lies.
The Gospel is not about you – IT’S ABOUT JESUS! Time for us to lay down our lives! False teachers make it all about you in order to get you focused on self, “not holding the Head” (Col. 2:18-19; 3:1-4).
The Lord is showing his Mercy by uncovering this vile lying wolf who has deceived Millions for many many years and made himself rich in the process.
“The Bible gives us plenty of good examples of true preachers. Jesus Christ and the apostles we have no excuses for following false teachers like this.” Steve Sumner
ANY person who thinks Osteen is a pastor for the LORD is completely deceived and has no slight clue to biblical Christianity. It’s time to repent and get into God’s Word.
Many today fund and defend the evil wolves due to a cross-less congruence of evil in both hearts – 2 Timothy 4:3-4 …. Osteen’s covetousness of heart is what is in the hearts of those who support him
In relation to this Houston flood, Pastor Mark Herridge Sr. writes:
“In times of disaster such as Texas is experiencing the need for truth is even greater. We should not compromise the truth simply because of difficulties. Many times these are the best opportunities we will have to share the truth of the Gospel with others. Of course we should always do so with compassion but we should never falter in our commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ. Remember it was Jesus that set the example by stating to those listeners that day this verse: Luke 13:4 says: ‘Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?
Luke 13:5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.’ Jesus used this tragedy as a platform to warn others that the Judgment of God is sure and the only antidote is repentance.” Pastor Mark Herridge Sr.
Michael, was the Son of God slandering when He violently overthrew these same money changers in the temple? Was the LORD’s apostle Peter slandering when he warned us of this very thing? “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.” 2 Peter 2:1-3
Slander is unconstructive criticism. Protecting Christ’s sheep at His mandate is not slander. You are not rightly dividing the Word. That would make Jesus a slanderer for exposing the pharisees.
Sounds like you need to repent and get your life right with LORD: “Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.” Hosea 10:12″
“What gets me is these people who keeps backing these millionaire preachers and many of them know better. It’s the feel good preaching that most of them like. We need preachers to preach on Hell because Hell is just as real as Heaven. And this God is good messages all the time coming out of many pulpits is going to cost some preachers dearly. Our God is a loving God but there is another side that should put fear in His children because He says I will chastens those who I love. The children of Israel could tell us the other side.” Keith Wise
Warning is a manifestation of the LORD’s love protecting His sheep for whom He died! Satan’s deceit is seen in those who pretend to be loving while covering for Satan’s agents. Beware.
“Yes Osteen’s deception is pretty easy to see though, if you know the Word. So many not feeding themselves, to have eyes to see.” Laura Bonitz
Jim Borge writes: “One person recently upbraided me by informing me that Abraham was very wealthy, so riches is a sign of God’s favor. I told him that in Abraham’s day wealth was measured by the number of camels and donkeys he owned. These were a nomadic people, so Abraham lived in a tent-just like all the others who traveled with him. Abraham was indeed blessed by God because he was a man of faith. Even Abraham couldn’t imagine living in a 10.5 million dollar estate. I do not believe that Joel Osteen’s wealth is a sign of God’s favor.”
Why are some judging believers while saying they’re judging Osteen and other obvious wolves? They are accusing others of doing what they are doing to them….. do believers who see that Osteen is misleading man not have the right to have their own opinio/view about Osteen even though it differs from others? ….. and, I believe theirs is more biblically based than the wolf defenders. Be encouraged to get a King James Bible and begin diligently studying God’s Word for yourself. This is the only way your eyes will be opened – by the LORD Himself.
Any second grader knows that Joel Osteen doesn’t preach anything remotely close to the original gospel
No truth-seeker on the planet believes that Joel Osteen is anything but a lying wolf.
Joel Osteen is on TV trying to patch things up to keep the faithful gullible faithful…. we should wonder how much he paid $$$ to get these advertisement slots.
Osteen has been deceiving – LYING – to millions of people for many years and yet you don’t believe he’d lie to cover this up? How gullible can one be?
Gina Mondello writes: “I just finished reading a book on the early church!…have we ever changed!!..and 30-40 minutes of a sermon on sunday mornings is not enough!…they spent a lot of time together! they helped each other!….today in many churches it’s all about “popularity” and “entertainment”…and a lot of jealousy over positions…they are very territorial over positions yet everyone should be serving some how…very sad!”
See Acts 2:42-47 saints!
For those who still defend Osteen and false gospel: The burden of proof is upon you fully to prove Joel Osteen is preaching the original Gospel. Do you know what the original Gospel is? Can you define it by Scripture? What’s the first command/word of the Gospel Dennis? Hint: Matt. 3:2; 4:17; Acts 2:38, etc. Does Joel ever preach or even mention this word? No. Case closed – Osteen is “accursed” – Gal. 1:6-9
NO such thing as a true man of God who lives in a million dollar home (Mark 10:23-25; Lk. 12:15-21; 16:19-31). True men of God pour out their lives for Christ and His sheep and do not over embellish themselves in this fleeting world (Phil. 3:17-21).
WE are to shun and depart from any person who equate gain/money to godliness – “If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;
1Ti 6:4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,
1Ti 6:5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.” 1 Tim 6:3-5
If warning is evil, you’ve just called Jesus, Paul, all the prophets and all the apostles of Jesus false.
MESSAGE RECEIVED FROM AN OSTEEN DEFENDER:
“Nah man, I won’t dare put my mouth on anyone’s anointing.
Matthew 7:2- For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
Psalm 105:15- “Do not touch my anointed ones; do my prophets no harm.” Lamar
EVERY true, born again saint is anointed. The anointing is the divine Person of the Holy Ghost, not some clown whose convinced the gullible that he’s ‘THA MANNNN.’
Listen to Christ’s apostle John speaking to every born again disciple under the whole New Testament era:
‘But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.’ 1 John 2:27
In Matt. 7:1-6, Jesus is speaking of HYPOCRITICAL judgment/condemnation. Jesus further says “JUDGE righteous judgment.” (John 7:24) Paul says to the true remnant of Christ of those professing believers who are living in unrepentant sin – “do not ye judge them that are within?” (1 Corinthians 5:12) …. “Anointing”? not of the Holy Spirit. Lamar, friend, the burden of proof is on you to produce the actual words proving that Osteen is preaching the original Gospel. If he’s not (and that is obvious) he “accursed” – Read Galatians 1:6-9. ..DIVINE MANDATE: “do not ye judge them that are within?” Jude 3-4
IF YOU have no problem that your favorite wolf lives in a multi-million dollar mansion, you’ve got some serious problems in your own heart. Fact: Jesus and His holy apostles made themselves poor in this world – they poured out all to help others. They left it all on the table to bless others! “Double honour” yes but not lavish riches (1 Timothy 5:17-18). What Does “Double Honour” Mean? The Bible Uses the Phrase “Double Honour.” What Does that Mean?
“Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?” Ezekiel 34:2
Elizabeth Tyrna writes: “How can a man who claims to be a man of God hoard millions in personal wealth? Osteen is just one of many many ‘shepherds’, sitting on millions. How can this be right in God’s eyes? I feel guilty for having a few hundred tucked away for emergencies. The greed and lust for money is a terrible sin. I never want more than I need to survive and give what I can. Money in almost all cases shipwrecks most of the lives of the wealthy. I am just trying to understand this and see it from God’s eyes.”
BOTTOM LINE: Those who refuse to obey Christ by laying down their lives in this fleeting world are being misled by the “MANY false prophets” Jesus told us would invade Christendom in the final hour (Matthew 7:15; 24:11, 24, etc.). Eternal hell irrevocably awaits all who aren’t denying self, taking up the cross, and following Jesus DAILY! Heresies have a divine purpose. Did you know that? Read 1 Corinthians 11:19.
IF YOU are a cross-less, self-serving coward who refuses to sound the alarm on the wolves who are destroying souls, you will suffer the same eternal damnation as they do! (2 Peter 2:1-3; 2 John 10-11, etc.). Time to repent before it’s too late! When you do, you will be full of the holy fear of God and not men! Beware of the wolf defenders.
“I have heard his sermons;many have encouraged me.”
“This is an obvious point. Only those who have made a conscious decision to believe a lie extol Osteen’s brand of religiosity. Wake up! Time is of the essence, and you still are not right with God. Only CHRIST can and will save you!” Nick Novello
“I am at a lost for words. I’m just dumb founded by the god people have built for themselves. Peace and love but no judgement.. PLEASE! I’m seriously utterly at a loss for what to say!!” Sherry Todd
