I know we should bare good fruit. It's a good way of identifying the brethren but I don't know about anybody else but I have ran into some who were barring some awesome fruit and thought surely this is my brethren. Come to find out he was far from being my brethren. Point being, they're are many who bare good fruit who aren't even saved.
Joel olsteens messages are centered around self loving messages. They're all about me, myself, I, mine it's all about me. They need to take their ale yes off of themselves and put them on THE LORD JESUS CHRIST and what's he's done and still doing. His ministry if that's what you wanna call it, is straight apostasy. As a preacher, he is to preach the whole council of GOD and not this self centered love myself, it's all about me junk.
When I read about false scammers like this man I can't help but wonder why don't the true brothers and sisters in the faith put a good foot in rear end of folks like this instead of sitting by and allowing this to go on.

I'm with him on the stand against homosexuality, and the evils of this world. I'm with him on baptism and works. They're both right and they are good but they absolutely are not what saves us. I'm all for turning from from ones old wicked ways but that's not what saves a man.
