Joel is a super nice guy, and dedicated Christian.

But he seems to preach that all life’s problems will just disappear when one becomes a Christ follower, and that is just pie-in-the-sky not true.

In fact, the world often turns sour on true Christ followers... and problems certainly do not go away even for the most faithful Christ follower.

For me, believing on Christ Jesus certainly regenerated my mind and life.... but problems don’t just disappear.

Vincent: Want some bacon?
Jules: No man, I don’t eat pork.
Vincent: Are you Jewish?
Jules: Nah, I ain’t Jewish, I just don’t dig on swine, that’s all.
Vincent: Why not?
Jules: Pigs are filthy animals. I don’t eat filthy animals.
Vincent: Bacon tastes gooood. Pork chops taste gooood.
Jules: Hey, sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie, but I’d never know ‘cause I wouldn’t eat the filthy m-fer. Pigs sleep and root in shit. That’s a filthy animal. I ain’t eat nothin’ that ain’t got enough sense enough to disregard its own feces.
Vincent: How about a dog? Dogs eats its own feces.
Jules: I don’t eat dog either.
Vincent: Yeah, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal?
Jules: I wouldn’t go so far as to call a dog filthy but they’re definitely dirty. But, a dog’s got personality. Personality goes a long way.
Vincent: Ah, so by that rationale, if a pig had a better personality, he would cease to be a filthy animal. Is that true?
Jules: Well we’d have to be talkin’ about one charming m-fn pig. I mean he’d have to be ten times more charmin’ than that Arnold on Green Acres, you know what I’m sayin’?

I have a problem with a “man of the cloth” accepting a $14,000,000 advance on his book deal.

Like Benny Hinn who says he went to Heaven and he’ll sell you a dvd describing it. If God allowed me to see Heaven I don’t think I’d be charging to tell about it.

Bottom line: I have a problem with any preacher who’s on T.V. If God wanted that he’d have put KGOD on Mount Ararat.

Actually, there are many good devoted preachers of Christ on TV.

I learn a lot, and I believe many people have become dedicated saved and transformed Christians thru Christian TV.

Unfortunately it costs a lot for TV production.

I either watch or DVR Joel every week and I just got through watching this week's program. It was one of the most uplifting messages that I have ever heard him give. He was talking about how God is in control and can affect your life in a supernatural way. It in no way was a message about financial prosperity (pork).

I wish that people who constantly disparage Joel would actually watch his program for a few weeks! Just as Rush does, Joel gets a lot of criticism from people who are repeating what they have heard from others and not what they themselves have experienced. Just catching a few minutes of the program as you flip through the channels is not the same as watching the entire program for a few weeks.

My daughters (who introduced me to Joel when they were teenagers) went to see him in person when he came to Raleigh, NC, a couple of years ago. It was a wonderful experience. He will be in Charlotte, NC, on September 11, 2009.

Wow! What an idiot! The fact that a pig digests quickly helps the pig to ELIMINATE the toxins, not store them. It’s precisely because the diet of the pig is a bit nastier that the pig doesn’t spend 24 hours absorbing the contents of its food. In the video Osteen treats it as if somehow spending LONGER absorbing food contents will mean that other animals (cows, sheep, etc.) will absord LESS toxins.

Besides, the pig’s diet has nothing to do with why it’s not kosher. It’s the hooves. A pig is cloven-hoofed, meaning that the soft flesh between the hooves can make contact with the ground, and pick up trichinosis and other parasites.

You didn’t even peak at the video did you? He wasn’t talking about stimulus “pork.” He was spreading lies to people to scare them away from eating pig meat.

I watch his message quite often also. I truly love him.

I felt guilty after saying tough things about him on FR.

But I truly think he goes overboard in painting this rosy scenario of what it means to be a true Christ-following Christian.

I had a 10-minute Youtube clip of one of his sermons, and he was literally promising that anyone who was born again would suddenly become wealthy within one year.

He was sounding more like a self-esteem class than a Christ follower.

Christ transforms us from the inside out, not the outside in.

That is my only point, and it is not really a deal breaker with me and Joel Osteen.

Just a comment.

Which of course is the opposite of what Christ taught. The prosperity gospel that Osteen promotes, is false teaching.

I just listened to the clip.
Osteen is completely wrong about pigs, and how they are raised and fed. He is spreading false information about the pork industry.

Pigs have not been fed this way for over 100 years. And they take much longer than 4 hours for food to pass through them.

Actually every point that he made is completely wrong.
And the Bible does not prohibit us from eating pork. At least not the New Testament, if he follows it’s teachings.

Interesting you say that. Joel, to me, comes across like obommie - very slick and self serving. His mannersisms including that little smirk and closing his eyes turn me off to his charlaton ways.

I always enjoyed the late Dr. James Kennedy and recently discovered Dr. David Jerimiah. Both related biblical teachings to the modern world. Dr. Jerimiah just completed a series on the threat & danger of islam including allah not being the God of Abraham.

Og! Now that I think about it, I’m not sure that it’s trichinosis that cloven-hoofed animals get. I’m going from memory too, and I’m not 100% positive that trichinosis wasn’t merely a presumption when I read about pork getting parasites through the hooves.

Doesn't really matter. The old covenant proscriptions regarding food have nothing at all to do with personal health. It was merely part of the (temporary) cultus of ancient Israel as a distinct people of God; like the wearing of fabric from two different sources or the length of one’s beard. Osteen doesn’t get it because he is a success-oriented preacher. Anything that might interferes with temporal success is to be avoided.

Now, while we should not knowingly do direct harm to our bodies (say, shooting oneself in the head), the suggestion that buying nice pork shoulder at the grocery store and making some deeee-licious BBQ is somehow to be avoided for health reasons, or worse yet, is offense to God, is absurd.

I have no problem with Osteen “keeping kosher” for personal reasons. When he starts preaching it from the pulpit from a position of bad theology, then he is to be opposed.

I’m certainly not going to say you’re wrong. But whereas how circumcision establishes a distinct people, I’m not sure how the prohibition of eating cloven-hoofed animals does that. You’re general point is correct: Christians aren’t bound by the Mosaic dietary code. A lot of the sexuality code seems really weird when you make it about setting apart a chosen people, but makes sense when you get into epidemiology of STDs.

Our Lord put the subject of what goes in and what comes out of us quite clearly in Mark 7:9-23:

9 Then he said, “You reject God’s laws in order to hold on to your own traditions. 10 For instance, Moses gave you this law from God: ‘Honor your father and mother,’ and ‘Anyone who speaks evil of father or mother must be put to death.’ 11 But you say it is all right for people to say to their parents, ‘Sorry, I can’t help you. For I have vowed to give to God what I could have given to you.’ 12 You let them disregard their needy parents. 13 As such, you break the law of God in order to protect your own tradition. And this is only one example. There are many, many others.”

14 Then Jesus called to the crowd to come and hear. “All of you listen,” he said, “and try to understand. 15 You are not defiled by what you eat; you are defiled by what you say and do!”

17 Then Jesus went into a house to get away from the crowds, and his disciples asked him what he meant by the statement he had made. 18 “Don’t you understand either?” he asked. “Can’t you see that what you eat won’t defile you? 19 Food doesn’t come in contact with your heart, but only passes through the stomach and then comes out again.” (By saying this, he showed that every kind of food is acceptable.) 20 And then he added, “It is the thought-life that defiles you. 21 For from within, out of a person’s heart, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, eagerness for lustful pleasure, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness. 23 All these vile things come from within; they are what defile you and make you unacceptable to God.”

I used to live catty-corner from his lair, across from US 59. Since we had no church at the time, my wife would cajole me into going. I'm not a Bible-y kind of guy, but I tightened my gut and went. I tend to have slight ADD, so as I lost interest in the sermon and looked around the stadium I found that the ceiling lights are AWESOME, and change colors every few secends. That is the biggest selling point of the event for me.

Oh, and the other selling point was J.O.'s sermon that if you are a good Christian, God will reward you with excellent parking.

Actually, no one is bound by the Mosaic dietary code, because the ancient nation to whom it was given no longer exists. They ceased to be binding at the appearance of the One to whom all these laws pointed, Jesus Christ. Christ set aside the temporary aspects of the Mosaic (e.g., Levitical) code once for all time, since they had served their purpose in identifying the Messiah of the new covenant (cf. Hebrews 8:13). The Levitical priesthood (and all rites and practices associated with it) has been set aside in favor of the greater High Priest after the order of Melchizedek.

“And the Bible does not prohibit us from eating pork. At least not the New Testament, if he follows it’s teachings.”

Kinda, sorta.

Jewish converts to Christianity are encouraged to continue to follow the dietary restrictions of the Law, as most clearly noted in Acts 21:

When we arrived at Jerusalem, the brothers received us warmly. 18The next day Paul and the rest of us went to see James, and all the elders were present. 19Paul greeted them and reported in detail what God had done among the Gentiles through his ministry.
20When they heard this, they praised God. Then they said to Paul: “You see, brother, how many thousands of Jews have believed, and all of them are zealous for the law. 21They have been informed that you teach all the Jews who live among the Gentiles to turn away from Moses, telling them not to circumcise their children or live according to our customs. 22What shall we do? They will certainly hear that you have come, 23so do what we tell you. There are four men with us who have made a vow. 24Take these men, join in their purification rites and pay their expenses, so that they can have their heads shaved. Then everybody will know there is no truth in these reports about you, but that you yourself are living in obedience to the law. 25As for the Gentile believers, we have written to them our decision that they should abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality.”

26The next day Paul took the men and purified himself along with them. Then he went to the temple to give notice of the date when the days of purification would end and the offering would be made for each of them.”

As a complete aside, IMHO, “meat sacrificed to idols” would include Halal meat, as it is sacrificed to the pagan “god” allah.

Kosher meat, of course, is fine.

The problem is the single gut of the pig.

Pigs, rabbits, etc, don’t chew their cudd. That’s why they get worms. In a cow or the like, the multiple guts destroy the larvae.

...then, at the end of the show, quotes a brief bible verse, and says something nice about God.

Pork is loaded with parasites, and cooking doesn’t kill the cystic forms, do a colon cleans, you’ll see, I stopped eating pork long ago, the number of parasites per square inch in there flesh would boggle your mind. My uncles were all hog farmers, they lay in their own waste, neck deep, and the meat smells just like, visit a real hog farm and that will do more to educate you than anything. Hogs = parasites in humans, that is the real truth of the matter, if you don’t you have parasites you’re leaving in a fantasy, and if you eat a lot of pork, cancer is waiting on your doorstep because the waste products of the parasites in your body will cause terrible fungai to grow, then through plemorhpism it will change to cancer, don’t bother arguing with me about it, you want to eat pork then it eat, but for those who listen, this post was for you.

Partly by enforcing a division in their minds: "We don't eat what those other people eat." It would also keep a scrupulous Israelite out of pagan religious feasts.

Cows are absolutely load with fluke worms, you have no idea, the anti-parasitcals used in farming is tremendous and they are getting into humans as well, the liver fluke especially from cows.

Americans in general know nothing of parasites, they think Americans don't really get parasites, how much more wrong could they be.

CDC Reports Prevalence Of Worms Transmitted By Dogs And Cats To Humans Is Higher Than Previously Understood

There are only a handful of parasitologists in America, and they know nothing of parasites frankly. Go tell you doctor you think you have worms, he'll ask you "Have you been out of the country?" and refuse to test if you say no. Why, because the belief is America is above parasites, this does not bode well for the health of this nation. If you are lucky enough to get a test, the test has less than 1 in 1000 of finding evidence of parasites and they only check for like 20 to 50 types, ie, is a miracle if you get a hit. Wake up America. Like the CDC report states

About 14 percent of the U.S. population is infected with Toxocara, or internal roundworms, contracted from dogs and cats. This is especially true of children, and hookworms and other very dangerous parasites are getting into children, in fact, parasite infection is becoming the leading cause of blindness if children in America. America's love of pets is coming home to roost, every American yard full of cat and dog crap is loaded with parasites and odds are your children are infected.

I can understand you're wanting to live with Blinders on, even the Medical establishment is horrified by the prospect and wont even approach the subject. I know this first hand, I know doctors that walked out of offices when patients were seen to have worms coming from their skin and ask the people to leave.

I thought all the replacement theologians were executed at Nurenburg.
