Osteen reveals keys to becoming a 'better you'
Popular televangelist Joel Osteen, whose smile is known to millions worldwide, hits stores Monday with his second anticipated book – Become a Better You.

Following the huge success of his first published work, Your Best Life Now: 7 Steps to Living at your Full Potential, the bestselling author has on shelves 3 million copies of his latest work – the highest first printing for a hardcover book in history of publishing house Simon & Schuster. Osteen is currently on a national media tour.

Like Osteen’s first book, Become a Better You is mainly taken from the megachurch pastor’s weekly sermons which are positive messages without the traditional teachings of suffering or what critics call the prosperity gospel. Osteen believes his newest work is better than his first, which sold about 5 million copies. ...

Ann of Oregon, thank you for that link, there is so much truth in your article. These apostate teachers, preachers, prophets are springing up like uncontrollable, unwanted weeds everywhere. The meaning of Christian is so broad and watered down, that those who are truly born again according to God's power and the scriptures might want to consider a different name, perhaps 'bondservant'.

Again, yours is an informative read with much truth tucked away, God bless you sister.

Ah, I thought I would comments on some more of the antics Joel Osteen. Apparently he, Pat Robertson, got together and are now supporting dietary restrictions of the Old Testament. This is The Doctrine of Apostates, and I would add, he is still Nullifying the Gospel's Saving Power. These fellows never get closer to the Gospel, but farther away from it.

Billy "Joelsteen" is deceiving millions with his karaoke worship.

His call to the ministry:
"They sat at the bar and put bread in his jar and said 'man, what are you doin' here?"

It is beyond comprehension how Joel Osteen can stand in his pulpit Sunday after Sunday giving varying teachings on "his" same old message -- and people sit there listening to the same prosperity doctrine time and time again...

In the beginning they all hold up their BIBLES and say their little mantra --- "This is my BIBLE I am what it says I am..." -- they don't know how TRUE that statement is !!! -- GOD'S WORD talks all about those who hear only what they want to hear...

Joel Osteen has carelessly redused GOD, HIS LOVE AND THE FULL GOSPEL TRUTH to his own warped good times message...

This young man has been duped by reasoning that is *contrary* to THE TRUTH and has become an ambassador of tWiStEd theology...

CONSIDER THE TOTALITY OF GOD'S TRUTH CONCERNING ***THE CROSS***, **JESUS' BLOOD AND HIS BATTERED AND BRUISED BODY**, **JESUS AS THE *ONLY WAY* TO THE FATHER**, **THE MANY LESSONS SET FORTH TO those WITH DISCERNMENT [FROM COVER TO COVER]**, **HELL** AND **THE MANY WARNINGS TO those *IN* CHRIST**... and then WEIGH young Osteens message for the vacuous bluster it TRULY is.

I Love Joel and though I am upset with his lack of UNDERSTANDING it is my *sincere prayer* that his Heart WILL BE OPENED TO THE TRUTH --- ALL OF IT !!!

Veritas Vincit !!!

*IN* Christ, KK

I saw this book in K-Mart on Saturday. Flipped through it. Very sad that that religion has come to this. Horrifying that anyone would rely on what's in the book for spiritual guidance. Makes my stomach hurt that I haven't heard anyone in the Christian world denouncing this book publicly. Anyhow, the book contains the sort of shallow nonsense you'd expect. There's no point in even reviewing it. Nothing there to review. He just cut and paste some psychology and Word-of-Faith stuff together into a "new" book with his picture on the cover, but there's nothing new in it.

Are you saying you dont believe in OSAS?

OSAS ... ... Not the way men have construed it.

The "Baptist" denomination and others have taken this idea of "OSAS" to the point of perversion...

GOD'S WORD IS CLEAR --- SOW to the flesh *OR* SOW TO THE SPIRIT --- a man is going to SOW to something --- you CAN ONLY HAVE ONE TRUE LOVE --- anyone who CHOOSES to **persistently** follow after his own lustful desires for "self" [going against "CONSCIENCE"/"MORAL SENSE" BEING GUIDED BY THE SPIRIT] walking contrary to THE TRUTH (**mocking** GOD AND HIS SON) -- will be cut off, turned over to his own devices and become a recipient of GOD'S WRATH AND JUDGEMENT !!!

SOMETHING America IS ABOUT TO FIND OUT **THE HARD WAY**

It seems that the nature of man is to be forgetful and HEEDLESS

HISTORY TRULY DOES REPEAT ITSELF -- all because of the foolishness of men

OSAS ONLY APPLIES TO those LIVING IN RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AT THE FOOT OF THE CROSS ***LOOKING INTO THE REFLECTIVE LIFE GIVING WORD*** SEEKING FIRST HIS KINGDOM... *IN* CHRIST !!!

I'm not an eloquent man -- just a man who has HEARD --- FAITH COMES BY HEARING AND HEARING ***BY THE WORD OF GOD*** AND without ACTIVE FAITH IT IS impossible TO PLEASE GOD

Think it not strange that we have "wolves" like Osteen in the pulpit. The bible speaks of it long before they showed up on the scene. The answer is "born again Believers", must not dwell in ignorance. We must test the spirits, and study to show OURSELVES approved...."

2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

Matthew 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world and already exists now.

Let's just get right to the bottom line !!!

IT'S ALL ABOUT GOD'S WORD [*IN* CHRIST] !!!

2 Timothy 3:16,17
EVERY SCRIPTURE IS GOD-BREATHED --- GIVEN
BY HIS INSPIRATION --- AND PROFITABLE FOR
INSTRUCTION, FOR REPROOF, AND CONVICTION OF
sin, FOR CORRECTION OF error AND DISCIPLINE IN
OBEDIENCE, AND FOR TRAINING IN RIGHTEOUSNESS
[THAT IS, IN HOLY LIVING, IN CONFORMITY TO
GOD'S WILL IN THOUGHT PURPOSE AND ACTION], SO
THAT THE man OF GOD MAY BE COMPLETE AND PROFICIENT,
WELL-FITTED AND THOROUGHLY EQUIPED FOR EVERY GOOD WORK.

IT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN without GOD'S WORD !!! -- ALL OF IT !!! -- NOT JUST THE PARTS men like, BUT THE FULL COUNSEL OF THE LORD !!!

America has plummited into this moral societal cesspool due to the failure of men to HEAR FROM ON HIGH...

Men refuse to ***SPEAK FORTH THE WHOLE TRUTH*** --- every denomination is guilty of each their own perversion of THE TRUTH !!! -- Believe it -- it is TRUE !!!

Men seem to love their own doctrinal twists more than GOD'S TRUTH -- AND HIS TRUTH ***INCLUDES ALL THE WARNINGS TO those *IN* CHRIST*** AS SET FORTH IN HIS WORD !!!

Men have systematically removed THE TRUTHS that don't agree with their ReLiGiOuS mind-set.

BEST WAKE UP !!!

OSAS ... ... many have been decieved by blind men.

I dont want to be a better me. I struggle to die to my flesh every day. Though I know God blesses us, its not my opinion that he is concerned with us being perfectly happy, but instead being content, taking up our cross and following Him. His ways and thoughts arent ours, and I am thankful for that. The best "me" I can attain is still nothing compared to Christ in me.

Jesus dying on the cross for the remission of our sins is more than pretty sweet!

'My Sweet Lord,' a chocolate statue by artist Cosimo Cavallaro of a naked Jesus hangs at Ranieris Sculpture Casting studio in this March 29, 2007 file photo in New York. A new casting of the sculpture that infuriated Catholics before its April unveiling was canceled, returns Oct. 27 to a Chelsea art gallery, its creator said Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2007.

http://ca.news.yahoo.com/photo/17102007/11/photo/sweet-lord-chocolate-statue-artist-cosimo-cavallaro-naked-jesus-hangs.html

John 6:53-55 Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.

Don't know what God thinks about Joel Osteen or an artist who makes a "chocolate Jesus"? All I do know is the best attainment is to Love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. To love your neighbours and show mercy. To feed not only those whom you deem worthy, when you see them hungry, but also your enemies.

May we all have the mind of Christ!

Joel Osteen.

He is so popular. So much to offer to the 'world' in little appealing 'smiles'.

The sad part? His preaching is useless to the saved and will not work for the unsaved.

For example. If I hate some one who really, truly, hurt me, but was told this hatred can hurt me, preventing my happiness, and I should love them. Although I follow the necessary steps for forgiveness etc., I cannot, apart from being saved, do this.

No one can.

The sad truth? This person is only deceived for a moment, and feels, just for a moment, hope. This moment is extremely valuable to the lost, therefore the world loves the possibility 'Joel Osteen' will work.

Psalm 7:11
" God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day".

Joel Osteen and Opra have several things in common. They both have a false religion, and a very large audience.

They both provided a scheme to validate an itchy ear.

Opra (New Age) - You create a God that best fits your life.

Joel (Prosperity Gospel) - Follow my God and you can be as rich as I am.

Amen, Jim. Steps would be laying works for salvation. If Osteen has done this, he's adding to Christ's work. True conversion has no steps, only a broken heart made right with God at the moment of saving faith....and on that only.

There are no "steps" to the Gospel,

"Mark 1
14. Now after John was delivered up, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God,
15 and saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe in the gospel.
Acts 17
30 The times of ignorance therefore God overlooked; but now he commandeth men that they should all everywhere repent:"

Scofield, "
Repentance is the trans. of a Gr. word (metanoia-metanoeo) meaning "to
have another mind," "to change the mind," and is used in the N.T. to
indicate a change of mind in respect of sin, of God, and of self. This
change of mind may, especially in the case of Christians who have fallen
into sin, be preceded by sorrow..."

Olsteen and Co.

"Nullifying the Gospel's Saving Power"
