Joel Osteen: I'm 'for Everybody' but Same-Sex Marriage Is Not in the Bible

Megachurch pastor Joel Osteen cited the Bible in his belief of marriage being a union between a man and a woman in a television appearance Friday, which also saw the televangelist comment on "The Bible Series" and speak about reconciling the belief in a loving God with the existence of human suffering.

Osteen, who leads Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, appeared on "The Lead With Jake Tapper" on Good Friday and the host referenced the Supreme Court taking on two cases this week involving the Defense of Marriage Act and California's Proposition 8, both of which have far-reaching consequences for the traditional definition of marriage.

Tapper asked Osteen if same-sex couples should be afforded the same rights as heterosexual couples, and the pastor cited the Bible to explain his beliefs about marriage.

"You know, Jake, it's a fine line. We're for everybody. But of course as a Christian pastor, ...

I am reformed, no doubt. However, the reformed brothers that trash Osteen .. including Paul Washer and John Macarthur have much evil remaining in their heart. These learned men don't hold a iota on how Osteen applies the word and build people up in Gods kingdom. I wish these dead reformed churches would reform their pastors.

I don't know what Osteen is smoking, but it isn't evangelical theology. It is even obvious to some in the secular world that Osteen isn't Christian. Does God Want You To Be Rich?--Time Magazine

Apparently he's like a (former) preacher in Indiana, who practiced Red Hot Preaching -- minus sin, which means Joel had even less substance and more noise.

Osteen just put 50% of Evangelical Protestant theologians in his pipe and smoked them. Osteen +1.

Osteen has a very liberal base, so this statement could hardly be a pleasing one to them.

Good job Joel for standing up on this issue

Ezekiel 33:11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live:...Ezekiel 33:19 But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall live thereby.

Actually it is not a fine line. It is a bright wide tall unmistakeable line set ou in Scripture about marriage. He came close to uttering the forbidden word but did say God was a God of mercy. Could that have something to do with s--i--n? Come on Joel you can say it.
