Skip to comments.TV preacher Osteen ventures into reality TV
Posted on 11/30/2011 1:50:02 PM PST by rightwingintelligentsia
Nationally known TV preacher and evangelist Joel Osteen is slated to join Mark Burnett, the producer of the popular Survivor show, to create new primetime network TV show together. Burnett and wife Roma Downey are good friends of Osteen and wife Victoria. Their show would feature people who join Osteen to start fixing things throughout the United States.
Osteen is viewed by more than 10 million people each week. He broadcasts from his Lakewood Church in Houston TX and could probably reach an even wider audience with the new venture. "We don't just want to do a reality show. We want to do something that inspires people and makes them better, you know," said Osteen. "It's not always entertaining and fun, but have some kind of message, make someone else's day today."

No thanks, I’ll pass.
He can make my day by going away.
Well, I guess at least it will be better than the “All-American Muslim” show.
Reality TV? Hasn’t he been doing this for years?
My creepy meter goes off when I see this guy.
Yeah but his wife is a screaming hot sorority babe.
“Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes-Benz”
This supposed preacher of the gospel says he wants to do something that will inspire people and make them better.
I prefer a message I hear in a real church. That people without Jesus are going down into Christless graves every day and this soon to be destroyed world is not our home, the signs are all about us that we are in the judgment hour and our redemption draweth nigh and unless a person is born again and repents of his sin, he can be the “best” person this world has to offer but he or she too will go down into a Christless grave where their eternity without God is sealed.
But I guess that wouldn’t be a popular message for people with itchy ears wanting to hear a soothing gospel instead of end time truths.....
Yeah, and she knows it. I hear she’s a bit of a prima donna.
If money is your problem, send ME your problem.
If Osteen is closely involved, this will be successful. He has the Midas touch. If he offers some sort of watered down Christianity angle to it and doesn’t offend someone, it will make a lot of money.

I think this is the first time I've heard or read the REAL gospel message, with anything regarding Osteen.
Preach it brother.
Rather than the Gospel, the only thing Osteen preaches is feel good psycho-babble from the book of 1st Imaginations.
“If he offers some sort of watered down Christianity angle to it and doesnt offend someone...”
Sorry, buddy. Too late.
Amen! I guess my point is that nobody will ever confuse Joel Osteen with John the Baptist, Elijah, and certainly not ole brother Noah ey?
True, but I meant specifically in the show.
Lots of this these days:
2Ti 3:5-6 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. (6) For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
Lots of silly women led astray to part from their money. Osteen truly is a brand. By the way, if every day was a Friday, I’d never have a day off. That would be a bummer.
With this guy everything is just wonderful as long as you don’t preach about sin. I regret I’ll be missing his program.
What you said FRiend. Amen.
Yes. About sin. I wrote this when I was beholding Him, wondering about the exact cause of death. (Sort of a CSI Jerusalem thing). He died of a broken heart. That’s ‘physically’ why John mentions water coming out of the stab. Osmosis is a mechanical event, occurs even after life leaves.
Osmosis = ‘particles suck’ (water). What particles in his side (the pericardial cavity) attracted water? The pieces of His heart. It physically broke. And that broke me.
Christ the Coke Machine
Then confessions coin rolls in.
sweet can of forgiveness.
We drink it all down with barely a frown
for myrrh-mingled wines sour business.
with quick feigned repentance,
unmindful of looming death sentence,
forgetting in sips,
rejecting with gall
pursuing next pleasure,
by thimble our sins we do measure.
Run doggedly hide
fist clutching blind pride,
leaving clear water treasure.
deaf to empty can crinkles.
Flap clokes thin disguise
Slaked saccharin lies
tasting vomit satisfies
while angels holding holy pens
thoughts silent scenes.
Recording pretense and pretend.
Thornd thickets convict
sharp briers, skin nicked
a side flowing red will soul mend.
Ho! Come to the water, its free,
Winds quarters cant count up the fee.
Blood pure washed away
to weeping streams where pebbles pray,
a hushed choking crying forest
the broke coke machine
to a tree.
