"These are facts, at the opening of every broadcas, Joel reveres the Bible, not some other scripture. "?

What exactly does Joel Osteen say at the opening of every broadcast?
What do you mean by revere?
Does what he says in any way esteem or honour the Scriptures?
Does what he says honour the Scriptures given to us by a holy God?
What is the gospel?
How can a sinful man be reconciled with a holy God?

I'm glad to see that I am no the only poster who actually likes Joel. This is all my opinion but here is my take on him. He is very sincere, he is a Christian, and he has been an instrument in leading many to Christ; far more that I ever will.

He should have spoken plainly in interviews to say Christ is the one way to God and that certain behaviors are sinful such as homosexuality. He didn't. I feel he does not want to scare people off of the gosepel, but again that is my opinion.

These are facts, at the opening of every broadcas, Joel reveres the Bible, not some other scripture. At the close of every broascast Joel invites listeners in to a relationship with Christ, not Muhammad, Mary, or Budaha, but Christ. He also asks that those who make a decision to find a local Bible believing church, not a mosque or tabernacle but a Bible believing church.

I concede that Joel is about as substantial as whipped creme compared with a steak, and that most will never go deeper spirtually, but our main goal as Christians is to win souls and I think Joel is very good at that. Plus, whipped cream is good sometimes.

Joel’s approach to THE GOSPLE is somewhat of a mistery to me...

I liken his dilivery to that of a man holding a guitar plucking on one string, But NEVER Utilizing The FULL IMPLEMENTATION OF The Other Five Strings IN CONJUNCTION WITH The MULTITUDE Of COMBINATIONS OFFERED When COMPRESSING The Strings Against The Neck, MOVING Through The Fretwork, That The HEARERS Might Partake Of THE COMPLETE EMBODIMENT Of SOUND That Was INTENDED For Their LISTENING PLEASURE That They Might Be TOUCHED And MOVED By THE RICH INTERACTION Of All THE NOTES In Their DEPTH And COHERENCY...

One Note ??? --- That is shallow playing...

I Love Joel, but I am concered for him...

He and so many others *NEVER* Speak Out About the dark issues of the day, the censorship of Christian values, the homosexual/lesbian/trans-gender agendas, sodomy, Sodom and Gamorrah, abortion, the HELL To Come, the deceitfulness of *SIN*, The Fact that there WILL BE Suffering in this life, adultery, fornication, being drawn away from THE TRUTH, THE CROSS, Christ Being THE ONLY WAY To GOD, etc...

This is not meant to be critical, BUT it is meant to SHEED LIGHT ON a problem that is A GREAT DANGER !!!

May GOD OPEN Our Eyes To SEE WITH **TRUE SIGHT** That Which We ARE CALLED **TO DO** In THE FULLNESS Of HIS WORD...
