Joel Osteen and the rise of megachurches

Lines of traffic filed into the parking garage and people rushed into the Amway Center in excitement as if they were going to a rock concert.

But inside, they were watching a preacher.

Joel Osteen, the televangelist and pastor for Houston's Lakewood Church, inspired thousands during his Night of Hope Event in December.

Many in attendance were there to not only see Osteen, but their own pastors take the stage as well. ...

You might want to humbly prayerfully consider the typical 'its all about making my life better' megachurch with what David Platt says well in a clip for his book RADICAL

One glance even most very stupid sheep would know Osteen was of the canine genus. No, it is not Joel that was the wolf in sheep's clothes. Did YOUR Pastor preach on Revelation 17? Rev 18 ? Of course not.. He kept the cattle sick, diseased and blind like Lord said they would do all over the scripture. Did you Pastor ever dare to tell you the Papacy was Antichrist.. ever preach a sermon on Vatican II ? Oh, but I expect your Pastor tells you all the time he believes the same doctrines as Spurgeon, Bunyon and Matthew Henry. John Gill? Tell him what THEY said about Antichrist and suddenly will come a lecture about the elders spiritual authority, hints about rebellion and how reading the Internet, classic Bible commentary, the Westminster Confession or systematic theologies may be too confusing and that is taking away from your ability to understand scripture and you must rely only upon your God appointed elder. He avoids to 1Co_2:13 .
Anyway, Osteen. After Vatican II AC funneled $$ into all these mega churches and fake Bible versions the Antichrist consumed the nation. Protestant pulpits bought off became silent and Jesuits had free reign in government. Now we have wealth redistribution by way of tsunami of illegal alien invasion. Judgement is upon us because of the Pastors.

Larry king ,asking Joel what a Christian looks like.Well................Larry ........ I just don't know........... I guess...what it means for me, is being a superstar.. I think Jesus wants us all to be super stars.... Larry... Ps.... This guy is a mockery to the Christian faith. These ear Itching lost covetous sinners, are walking on the path to destruction.

Well it is so hard to find 'good' entertainment these days.

And Joel Osteen fills that gap for the nearly religious.
