A crown of joy and God's favor is what the scripture says and what Joel preaches.

On the subject of "moolah", haven't you ever read, 3 John 1:2 "Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers."

I you don't like it, take it up with God, it's His Word. He certainly won't force you to take what his Word grants you.

So what are the Christians in Iraq doing wrong? Their churches are being blown up by Muslims and they have no jobs. I don't see much prosperity in their future. Just a crown of thorns. Do they need to get themselves a copy of Joel's book? Will that fix the problem?

How about the Christians who were martyred behind the Iron Curtain. What was their problem? No faith?

Osteen's shtick might fly in the air-conditioned comfort of the Compaq Center but it won't fly in the real world.
