St Paul was wrong in Acts 16, where Paul cures a slave girl of a demon that had given the girl the ability to fortune-tell and made money for her masters.
Now preacher Joel Osteen Pastor of mega church Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas has upped the ante by claiming, not only was St Paul wrong but also St Peter and St John in their gospel of non-tolerance, according to Joel.
Reading briefly through his claims it appears Mr. Osteen has a theology of "everyone gets to heaven, so don't sweat the SIN aspect"....kind of.
Okay, I can see a glimmer of "Love the sinner hate the sin somewhere deep inside that message...somewhere, but here's where Pastor Osteen goes off the cliff.
He claims the the chosen Apostles, chosen by Jesus himself to be teaching an incorrect gospel.
Really? 2000 years after the death of Christ and the establishment of his Church, we find out that we started off on the wrong foot and that Joel Osteen is going to set us straight?
This private revelation of pastor Osteen my shine with truth for his congregation and for those that don't want a change of heart or life style away from sin.
And St Peter, St Paul and St John were wrong?
Matt. 16-19 And I will give to thee (Peter) the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatsoever thou (Peter) shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and whsoever thou (Peter shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Was Jesus wrong too?
What about Gal 1-9: As we said before, so sy I now again. If any man preach anyh other gospel unto you than that which you have received let him be accursed.
Hey why change when I can go to a church that says, come as you are to our "feel good about yourself" church and be welcome.
Oh and please make all checks out to Pastor Joel Osteen, Lakewood Church...visa's accepted.
