You sound like one can’t make it to Heaven without Joel. I don’t need someone to tell me what’s in the Bible. I can read. And I wonder about T.V. evangelism. I think if Jesus wanted it on T.V. He’d start up KGOD on Mt. Ararat.
God instituted prophets teachers and pastors in the church to exhort, comfort and strengthen, not to read the Bible for us.

Whoa, that's a stretch. I was talking about spiritual warfare. In fact that's what a lot of this discussion is really all about. Satan (and the Pharisees) hate effective, joyful, powerful Christians (many besides Joel - Osteen just happens to be the latest lightning rod) who are effectively helping God's people to to have faith, hope, love, and joy in their lives as they overcome the world, the flesh and the devil.
Satan (and the Pharisees) also hate effective means of communicating God's message. If you don't think God, in these last moments before his coming has not ordained mass media in his mercy to spread the good news of the Gospel ans far and as wide and as quickly as possible, then I think you serve a fairly weak God.
