Joel Osteen Believes Homosexuality Is a Sin, but Won't Preach On It

Megachurch pastor of Lakewood Church and televangelist Joel Osteen was a guest on Larry King Now in Los Angeles to talk about everything from Duck Dynasty to Obamacare -- and, of course, his views on the gays came up.

King asked Osteen, "What are your views on homosexuality?” to which Osteen replied “The same that they’ve been. I believe that scripture says that it’s a sin but I always follow that up by saying you know what, we’re not against anybody.”

King pressed him to explain, commenting, "How can it be if we don't know what causes it? You don't know why you're a heterosexual."

"There's a lot of things Larry that I don't understand- so I just don't want to preach on it, preach about it," Osteen said. ...

And they are allowed to call themselves Christians because the church has not practiced church discipline for 100 years or more,the "judge not" movement made sure of that.

Robert Shuller is nauseating to listen to,like a fried Snickers bar,his mannerisms always reminded me of Buckwheat.

Not Preaching Against Sin  Find all comments by Not Preaching Against Sin
Is Sin Itself:

"Therefore To Him (Joel Osteen) That Knoweth To Do Good (Preach Against Sin / Preach For Righteousness & Holiness), And Doeth It Not (Preaches Not Against Sin / Preaches Not For Righteousness & Holiness), To Him (Joel Osteen) It Is Sin."--James 4:17

Thus, Joel Osteen, By Virtue Of Knowing That Sodomy/Homosexuality Is Sin; Yet Not Preaching Against The Sodomy/Homosexuality That He Knows Is Sin, Is Therefore Himself Perpetually Sinning IN NOT PREACHING AGAINST THE SIN OF SODOMY-/-HOMOSEXUALITY !

WHEN ONE PREACHES *AGAINST* SIN, ONE AT THE SAME TIME PREACHES *FOR* RIGHTEOUSNESS !

AND, WHEN ONE DOESN'T PREACH *AGAINST* SIN, ONE AT THE SAME TIME DOESN'T PREACH *FOR* RIGHTEOUSNESS !

"Righteousness Exalteth A Nation: But Sin Is A Reproach To
Any People."--Proverbs 14:34

The Above Analogy Is Very Similar To The Analogy Of:

"IN ORDER TO FULLY PREACH *FOR* CHRIST, WE MUST FULLY PREACH *AGAINST* ANTI-CHRIST !"

Joel Osteen Is Not Only Perpetually Sinning *AGAINST* Christ--He's Also Sinning *FOR* AntiChrist !

As An ADVOCATE FOR SIN, THE ANTI-CHRIST &-OR THE MAN OF SIN: HE'S FOUND TO BE A FALSE PROPHET IN LEAGUE WITH THE FALSE PROPHET:

"For Such Are False Apostles, Deceitful Workers, Transforming Themselves Into The Apostle Of Christ." 2 Cor. 11:13

Right on...my initial thought was his megachurh itself. Serms to me that he fears speaking up and out on sodomy because he knows, internally, that he will lose membership, which means money. I have to wonder then, if this is an accurate part of his apprehension, what kinds of people he has sitting in his church each week. Seems to me that anyone who doesn't want to hear the truth, in this case about homosexuality, have some secrets of their own and I have to wonder what types of lives they are living outside of the church; secret lives. Maybe I'm breaking it down too far but he obviously fears offending someone.

If he preached against it, he may not fill as many pews, or sell as many books. He only preaches what appeals to those with "itching ears" (2 Timothy 4:18).
