I imagine that Paul, Peter, and John would do the same to Mr. Osteen.

The Apostle Paul: But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ. For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, you bear this beautifully. (2Co 11:3-4)

As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed! For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ. (Gal 1:9-10)

Homos have lots of money. You can’t expect Joel to alienate that much market share.

"We’re not trying to judge their sin. We want to encourage them and love them. You’re only going to win people by reaching out to them.”

Clearly by "win people" he means "get their money".

You look at Joel Osteen’s work and career as a money-grubbing shyster enriching himself by exploiting peoples’ fears and promising them materialistic rewards if they send him money, and what you’re offended by is his stance on whether God will let gay people into heaven?

Yep. He is a phony. Money is more important than the words of Jesus. How can people be caught up in his lies?

Romans 16:18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

I suspect thee doth read too much into Joel Osteen’s brief answer to an interviewer’s question.

My hunch is that he means simply that, yes, sinners do go to heaven.

I could be wrong.

OK There’s my concrete proof. (I strongly suspected before but frankly didn’t care enough to pay attention to him)

Joel Osteen is NOT a Christian

Revelation 3:15-16 (KJV)

15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

he has come out boldly to infer indirectly that Apostles Paul, Peter, and John whom wrote much of the New Testament were wrong and need to be corrected and rebuked.

Imply. And "indirectly" is assumed in either "imply" or "infer."

There are no crosses in his church. I bet there isn’t many KJV’s either.

Joel Osteen Hoax: Man Allegedly Behind Ploy To Discredit Leader Wants Televangelist To Change His Message (VIDEO)

Famed televangelist Joel Osteen may not be losing his religion, but he is the target of an elaborate hoax attempting to discredit the powerful megachurch leader and “motivate him to talk about more serious subjects.”
