Don’t call Joel Osteen pastor it’s a insult to real pastors. He’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing

A bit harsh for a personal called “pastor” by the 20,000+ members of his church, eh? Alan N Carla Smith

I do enjoy listening to him. His words are inspirational and good motivation to me. He is not like his dad, but we should not judge him. Certainly,no one is perfect, but his sermons challenge me to be a better person and minister.

Joel Osteen…..pastor?…..laughable suggestion….and yes we are to judge his so called preaching and teaching….he is a wolf in motivational clothing. The biggest cop out because I don’t want to offend anyone in modern Christianity is the saying, “we shouldn’t judge”, when the Bible clearly says otherwise…

Not addressing the issue any have with Joel. How about what the writer of the article is saying about the grieving? I do believe that God created us as emotional beings and that we will and must go through the grieving process but I do not believe that He intends for us to live in grief. Please, understand, I am not being insensitive. I know text and words on a screen lack the true emotion of the person commenting. I believe God who created us comforts us. He is the God of all comfort. I believe his Spirit binds up the broken hearted. Not to say we still won’t miss our loved one (s) but we can be healed. We can be comforted. I may not understand totally what some are going through but I do know God is able and willing to heal his children who may be facing this.

waiting on more info to post.
IF Joel Osteen is pleasing The Father, I’m on-board BUT if he’s just tickling ears and pleasing man just count me out.
I’ll let John Bartlett judge ;-o

20,000+ born again Christians call him pastor. Is it in vain?

Alan N Carla Smith [06/26/2015 11:06 AM]
oh, I thought we were judging his preaching and teaching.

No one has any business posting this and talking about it. Your as bad as he is if he did any wrong. Whisperings and backbiting is sin.

John Kissinger [06/26/2015 5:52 PM]
Can we at least ask questions or this is sin as also?

False prophet. And. A sinner..

Pastor Phil Muncey – who left his own ministry to join Lakewood, wrote a Charisma News article in 2014 to set much of the controversies about Joel Osteen to bed:

(Lakewood is) where some 45,000 people attend weekly at one location. 50,000 people receive a new believers book at the altar calls each year in the Lakewood services. 6,000 volunteers are trained in Christ-centered ministries makes the 53-year-old Lakewood Church one of the healthiest churches in the country.

Joel touches 40 million people monthly through television and other media. His books have impacted over 30 million people and counting, including 5 New York Times best-sellers.

Joel is not a televangelist. His dedication as a pastor is reflected in this interesting fact. In the past 14 years, Joel has missed an average of just two weekend services a year. Even though Joel speaks at 38 of those weekends services annually, you’ll still find him sitting on the front row (including Wednesday nights) when not speaking, faithfully serving his flock and being a humble example (including shaking hands with the guests and new converts for one hour between services).

Joel and Victoria and Lakewood Church are ambassadors of the gospel—the hope of Christ. Since 2004, Joel and Victoria have held over 130 live “Night of Hope” events around the country and overseas. These monthly events have brought over 1 million people to a public confession of their sins and Christ as Lord!

Each month, Joel’s family and the Lakewood team hit city after city with the message of hope. Joel’s 16-hour nonstop Friday begins with meetings with local pastors, media interviews, then time preparing for the event. Joel and Victoria exhort and preach the majority 3-hour event, which ends with 30 to 50 percent of the mostly unbelieving and unchurched attendees standing and confessing their sins and Christ as Savior.

I owe many men. I don’t expect to pay them what they deserve. I hope that on that great day they may stand with me loving and forgiving all
