JOEL OSTEEN ARTICLES
(listed below are all articles that mention Joel Osteen on our website)

Back to homepage
False Preacher
We get a lot of criticism for discussing Joel Osteen, but Joel has elected to spare the people the Gospel Message and to continue to be a "Motivational Guru" instead of a purveyor of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  more

Preaching a False Positive
In the 2004 Charisma article, -it stated, “With his father sick in the hospital, John asks his son, Joel, to preach for him that Sunday. Initially Joel balked at the idea and said “no.” He then relented and here are Joel’s own words concerning his preaching that day: I just got up there and told stories. I was so glad when it was...more

Apostasy Watch
This is a report about three of the False Preachers who are heading up some of America's largest churches.

Joel Osteen Joins the Ranks of Modern Day False Prophets
The letter reads very closely to the letters I receive from other "prophets" like Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland, Marilyn Hickey, etc.  The letter states: "And I encourage you to receive this special word personally..."...more

Joel Osteen's Rock Show
Joel Osteen's new digs in Houston.  No offense to anyone in particular here folks, but this looks a lot more like a rock show than a Church....more

Become a Better you
As I thought about Joel Osteen's new book, Become a Better You, I was reminded of that sad, pathetic little loaf of bread because this book, like that bread, is form without substance. This is Osteen's second book, and the follow-up to his bestselling Your ... more

Joel Osteen’s Church Has a $90 Million Annual Budget
Mega-pastor Joel Osteen may not know theology very well, but he sure knows how to rake in the bucks. To put it another way, Osteen is an expert at getting your down-on-their-luck relatives to hand over their money to his "ministry." The proof is in the pudding, so they say, because the Houston Chronicle is ... more

Joel Osteen says Mitt Romney & Mormons are Christians
Below you will see Word Faith preacher Joel Osteen say that he believes Mormons are “true Christians.” This incredible statement from an alleged evangelical pastor came during Osteen’s December 23rd appearance on FOX News Sunday With Chris Wallace....more

Joel Osteen's Sugar Coated Gospel
I watched Joel Osteen, pastor of Houston's Lakewood Church and author of the enormously popular book, 'Your Best Life Now' being interviewed on 60 Minutes Sunday night and again on Monday's Good Morning America - and I have to say, I really liked the guy. I tried to dislike him - honestly, I did - but he was just too charming, humble and nice! I felt like a kid listening to Mr. Rogers. And...more

Joel Osteen Ticket Prices
Here are some screen captures from the Internet of various ticket prices being offered for some Joel Osteen tour dates.  These prices are unbelievable.  I would think ...more

Joel Osteen answers his critics
Joel Osteen's positive, upbeat can-do message has turned him into America's most popular preacher and earned him the title of most influential Christian in the country. He pastors ...more

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU BUY IN CHRISTIAN BOOKSTORES
It’s understandable that free-market conservatives are deeply troubled that Barack Obama has taken the reins of power. Already we see America moving even closer to socialism than before. But to me what’s even more troubling than what’s going on in Washington D.C. is the clear and present danger in Christendom. Let me spell out the problem as I see it: A-p-o-s-t-a-s-y. ..

Are Preachers Lazy?
A look around us should bring anyone with a bit of sense to realize that we as a people have become extremely lazy.  Remote controls even keep us from having to move a lousy 10 feet to change a channel on our TV sets.  Microwave ovens make preparing a meal quick and easy.  Electric windows on our cars make sure we don't get any unnecessary exercise by having to roll down our own windows.  Escalators and elevators keep us from doing too much walking.  Watch a commercial sometime and study the wording.  You will hear things like:...moreThe Low Informational Evangelical...part 1
While reading Wright's rant against the organized left (and rightly so) it occurred to me that evangelicalism is dealing with the same sort of crisis low-information people with high-profile power and/or influence. So for the purpose of this piece I'll refer to them as low-information evangelicals (LIE...more

The Low Informational Evangelical...part 2
Appearing in The Low-Information Evangelical (LIE), Part 1 is the phrase low-information voter (LIV) which is oft used by a popular radio talk show host.  The host suggests that those who make up this population set are individuals who vote for a candidate or important issue having little or in most cases zero knowledge about either.  LIVs are highly opinionated even when they have no idea what....more

“The Purpose Driven Church” – Spiritual Cotton Candy
All the work of all men contains error.  That I perceive error in Rick Warren’s work is not note worthy.  But the repeated patterns of false teaching over 20 or more years and 25 million or so books combine for something to take notice of.  This book proclaims an Armenian, man-centered view of the world and its Creator, claiming all the while to be a Biblically sound God-centered work.  I think it is actually Biblically bankrupt, gilded with the false gospel of pragmatism.  As subtle and dangerous as the ...

Are Baptists Really Better Together?
On October 11th, 2007, The Christian Post reported the following in an article titled," Southern Baptist Head Expresses Concern Over Negative Image:
Southern Baptist president Frank Page is speaking to fellow Baptists across the country with a resolve to pull together a denomination that has been wracked with divisions....

Good for nothing Christians
"Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men." (Matt. 5:13 KJV) Jesus said that salt without savor is "good for nothing." Savor is the ....

Some Christian news blogs and high-profile leaders overlook the truth
When I heard that Jan Crouch died of a massive stroke, to be quite honest, I was not saddened by the news. Why? Well, for one thing Jan and her deceased husband Paul promoted the worst sort of heresy imaginable: Word of Faith. But you wouldn't find that out by reading the Christian Post's puff piece. Janice Crouch was a controversial figure to be sure. But inquiring minds learned nothing about that from CP. Certainly part of the reason for the controversy was the ...more 

TBN Praise-a-Thon
IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN! Well, here we go again! It’s Praise-A-Thon time! If you tuned into TBN during the week of October 31st, you saw the parade of stars…the spiritual elite stars that is!  Among them were Paul and Jan Crouch, Juanita Bynum, Paula White,...more

Seed Faith---Is it Heresy?
But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. What do you think it means to deny the Lord? Many would say that any person or group that doesn’t believe that Jesus was ....more

Being a Watchman
I am hoping to open people’s hearts and minds to an area that is very much needed in the Church, but has been given very little freedom or acceptance.Being a Watchman on the wall can be very challenging.  Most people categorize you as being a heretic or demon-focused.  But what most don’t understand is that your focus is shaped by your Call.  It doesn’t really matter what you are called to, you will find ... more

TBN Share-A-Thon 2006
IT’S SPRING AGAIN; TIME TO SOW YOUR SEED! Now, I am not talking about planting seeds in a literal outdoor garden, rather it’s time to sow a seed in the form of a financial donation to, what some would call, the one and only means of the Gospel being preached to the entire world, that is the great Trinity
Broadcasting Network (TBN for short). During the week of April 17
th TBN held the first of two annual fundraisers they call ...more

Where has the Word of God Gone?
I suppose the better way of saying this would be; Where has the Word of God been left?  It has been left in the Bible, hidden away beneath the different ideals of men and women who claim to know a better way of getting to know God and a better way of releasing God's ... more
