Joel Osteen lied…

February 9, 2010

Or he told a mistake. One of the two. Perhaps, “mislead his flock by not studying to show himself a workman approved by God” would be better. I mean, that’s not news to most of us who strive to understand what Scripture says, with a basic understanding of theology, etc. So… do you remember when Joel Smiley said thus?

A Prophetic Word for Perry Noble, et. al.

THUS SAYS THE LORD!

The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel; prophesy, and say to them, even to the shepherds, Thus says the Lord GOD: Ah, shepherds of Israel who have been feeding yourselves! Should not shepherds feed the sheep? You eat the fat, you clothe yourselves with the wool, you slaughter the fat ones, but you do not feed the sheep. The weak you have not strengthened, the sick you have not healed, the injured you have not bound up, the strayed you have not brought back, the lost you have not sought, and with force and harshness you have ruled them. So they were scattered, because there was no shepherd, and they became food for all the wild beasts. My sheep were scattered; they wandered over all the mountains and on every high hill. My sheep were scattered over all the face of the earth, with none to search or seek for them. (more…)

An Open Letter to Joel Osteen

May 6, 2009

Mr. Joel Osteen,

I will not waste your time, nor mine, with undeserved pleasantries.[1]

I hate your message. What you preach is not the gospel found in holy scripture[2]. What you preach is a different gospel which is no gospel. It is man-pleasing at its best and heretical and blasphemous at its worst.[3] Those who follow you will find themselves hearing the saddest words ever spoken on the Great Day, “Depart from me. I never knew you.”[4] Even worse, those who would hear such a false gospel and one day fall away from it will then be in worse state than ever and it would be better had they never entertained your idea of “salvation.”[5]

I am shocked and appalled that you, who call yourself a pastor, would take pride in hardly using Scripture. Further, I am down-right livid you would place your “Notes of Encouragement” alongside Scripture. It is obvious by your preaching[6] that you do not understand the Scriptures[7]. The fact that you jokingly ask your congregation not to be rebellious while violating Scripture[8] is not just sad, but damning[9].

You claim to give people hope, but the hope you give is no hope at all. The hope you give makes this world just a better place to go to Hell from. It is a hope which you will gladly give to anyone, but the hope is devoid of the resurrected Jesus which is true hope.[10]

Let me ask you, would any one die for what you are preaching? Would the Christians in North Korea, China, India, and the Middle East be martyred so that others can live their best life now? No sir. They would not. At no point in Christian history has any martyr gone to glory cheering how he or she had become a better them and loved their life. No sir. They despised even the garment stained by flesh.[11]

I close with this as I can no longer bear to examine the damnable heresy you preach: Repent! You, who call yourself a pastor, face strict judgement[12]. You have taken the birthright that is the gospel and traded it for the porridge of worldly self-esteem, self-help, and works-righteousness. Because of that God hates you.[13] Your false teaching of wealth and the best to Christians is false teaching and explicitly warned about in Scripture.[14] Repent of your damnable, heretical false doctrine before your heart becomes like that of Pharaoh, hard and impenitent[15]. Today you have heard (through Scripture) the voice of God. Do not harden your heart![16] Believe in the only Gospel that can save! Preach the only Gospel that can save!

His Unworthy Slave,
Berry Davis

Some there are who cannot teach and will not learn, and it is because they will not learn that they cannot teach. I believe aptness for being taught is at the bottom of aptness to teach. The psalmist had both. He says, ‘Make me to understand the way of thy statutes.’ There he would be taught. ‘Then,’ saith he, ‘I will talk of thy wondrous works.’ There he would be teaching.

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.
