Joel Osteen Tackles Why Christians Suffer

Famed preacher Joel Osteen is oft-times criticized for being too soft on theology, but in an interview with TheBlaze he made it clear that he believes embracing Jesus is essential. Just being a moral person, Osteen argued, isn’t enough — in the end it’s all about the connection one has with Christ.

“To me, it’s very good to be a moral person — that’s very commendable. But our message is about a relationship with Christ,” he said. “You know, to me, that’s when you have salvation, your connection with the Creator of the universe.”

Experiencing God and the love of Christ, he says, opens up the human heart and allows people to enjoy “a new level of really being able to love people.” ...

To both the commentators before me --

Osteen, is false as long as he doesn't talk about sin, and How to Have Victory Over Sin

Christians suffer, as does all mankind, because of the actions of the Adam and Eve, The Consequences of Adam's Sin.

This is a false prophet. We are to called to judge with righteous judgement. Joel is clearly a people pleaser, nothing like the apostle Paul or Peter etc... He tells peopke what they want to hear not what the need. I feel sorry for him and pray he repents and truly comes to know The Lord. America is filled with many false converts, including those in "leading" positions.

I didn't see anything in this article about repentance, Christ be crucified for our sins, or anything of the sort in this article. Of course he wouldnt have thousands of members in his corrupt congregation, or make his millions if he were to preach anything negative. Christians are supposed to suffer for the Lord. Life doesn't turn into a bed of roses when you get saved it gets harder. This is a fallen world due to mans propensity for sin, and that's the reason for all the suffering, and evil in the world. Its not gonna get any better until our Lord Jesus Christ returns.
