Your Best Ham Now!

Seriously! Does this man OWN a Bible?

Joel “The Mouth” Osteen cannot seem to harmonize scripture or even use basic hermenutical principles. Let’s play shall we?
Thou shall not eat pork, shellfish, bat, etc.
Whatta weird dream!
It’s official!

Okay… After reading those we have a supposed contradiction. God says don’t eat pork, etc. but then says, “Go ahead!” So what changed? The Covenant! The prohibition on such foods fell under the Mosaic Covenant which bound the Israelites to a the Law. Part of that law was to abstain from certain foods for reasons which gave God glory. After the death and ressurection of Christ, God’s chosen are now in a Covenant of Grace. We are not bound by law, but by grace. If you take the New Testament as a whole you see certain principles laid out which echo law from the Old Testament. These tend to me in the area of morality. While our salvation is not in keeping the law, God still desires His people to be moral. All this is lost on Joel Osteen who seems to think that we are still under a law/works based covenant. We are not! Joel’s wretched theology will send anyone who follows it to hell. Paul was firm on the seperation of works for sanctification and grace for salvation. Look at Galatians 5:1-15, especially verse 3. If Joel wishes to keep the Kosher Law then he had better be prepared to use his wealth to start buying livestock! But be warned, God may not like them. The Law, the sacrifices have been taken care of by Jesus the Christ. To detract from that and (especially) to preach otherwise is to invite damnation upon oneself.

Joel Osteen repent of your sins and trust in Jesus Christ ALONE for your salvation.
