Benny Hinn is correct when he says that he will remain rich as long as people don’t read the Bible. The prosperity preachers can only find the word prosperity in the Old Testament and it was based on Israel’s obedience to God. The word prosperity is never once found in the New Testament. How can Prosperity preachers justify their behavior when the word prosperity has nothing to do with the body of Christ? These are people destitute of the truth who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself. Instead the Bible illiterate withdraw their money to send to these hucksters. Benny Hinn wants his congregation dumb. But he is actually the dumb one because does he think that God is blind to what he is doing? The prosperity pastors have a lot to answer for before Jesus. I can’t believe that the prosperity preachers are so blind to what they are doing unless God has already sent them strong delusion that they should believe the lie. If so that would explain a lot. Still, what about the illiterate congregation? I sometimes think of that in regard to Joel Osteen and his congregation. If the blind lead the blind both fall into a ditch. And believe me, that ditch is going to be plenty full even to overflowing.
Does anyone with an ounce of discernment really negate Paganisms strong influence on Catholicism? It is here we have an honest Cardinal that verifies Paganisms influence on the RCC. You begin to see a bizarre connection between the Two. I DO NOT WANT YOU TO HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH DEMONS. In truth, the RCC is consumed with paganism. I will have even more in part two.
John Hagee associated with some of the worst pastors such as Benny Hinn and Jesse Duplantis and now Joel Osteen. Hagee has no discernment whatsoever. What he does have is false prophecies such as a blood moonHagee and Osteen these two should be avoided at all cost. They are both part and portion of the Prosperity Gospel. Did they ever hear the words of Jesus? You cannot serve God and money. Enjoy the video.
Who is the queen of the New Age movement? She loves to give away cars and you know her as Oprah Winfrey. But one of her escorts will surprise you as he seems to have his hand in everything but Christianity. Yes, Joel Osteen himself. What is he doing promoting the New Age movement? He’s probably courting a huge donation from Oprah Winfrey? How about an initial comparison chart between the New Age movement and Christianity? I will have more in part 2 of this series.
My home Church paid our pastor $50,000 a year. He also received a parsonage as part of his benefit package. Our new pastor wanted more so he rejected the parsonage and bought himself a larger home complete with a bar and that should have told us all something. A few churches don’t pay their Pastor any salary. They work at a secular job and preach on Sunday. The separation of church and state began largely to assist small churches succeed. It was never intended for mega churches. Why? These two” parsonages” belong to Joyce Meyers and Joel Osteen. Are they living anything like their members?Why wouldn’t someone want to be in Ministry with perks like this? It all goes back to Jeremiah 5:30-31. An astonishing and horrible thing has been committed in the land. The prophets prophesy falsely, the priest rule by their own power, and my people love to have it so. Do you see the problem? Those that support the pastor love to have it so. Jesus and his apostles and the Apostle Paul suffered hardship during their life. Jesus had no place to lay his head and remember there was no room for him at the inn. It looks like he might have had a little room for himself at either Joyce Meyers or Joel Osteen’s home. I’m starting to believe the churches should pay their fair share of tax.
This is John Osteen, Joel Osteen’s father. He was once a Baptist pastor but his congregation asked him to leave because he began teaching the sign gifts. That’s when he started Lakewood church. He was a close personal friend of Kenneth Hagin and was preaching the signs and wonders gifts even before Oral Roberts. Unlike his son he did preach Jesus Christ but he failed to recognize that Jews request a sign from 1st Corinthians 1:22. He wanted the spectacular in his church. By the way did you know that Joel Osteen has no biblical training? If you heard him preach you know what I am talking about. His father was big in the signs and wonders movement. There was enough of Hagins Council that caused the Elder Osteen to err in his theology. Unfortunately both Osteen’s have led many people astray.
The Prophet Elijah Cast his mantle upon Elisha who took over for him after Elijah was taken by a whirlwind into heaven. Today we seem to have generational mantle’s within a Ministry family. There are been three generations of Schuller pastor’s, three generations of Swaggart pastor’s, and other such as John Hagee and son and Fred Price and son plus many more. I thought Ministry was a calling and not a generational gift. Another thing about Ministry involves spiritual gifts. There are those that believe that you can pick any spiritual gift you want but that is not scriptural. The Holy Spirit distributes the gifts according to First Corinthians 12:11. He provides us the gift of his choice and it never mentions multiple gifts. Some believe the gift of tongues is very important to Ministry but it is listed as one of the least gifts. Do all speak with tongues? 1st Corinthians 13 says that tongues will cease. I’m getting back to generational Ministries I would like to see the scripture that cites that argument? God does the calling not the parents of the son. Nowadays it seems that Ministries are a family affair including women which is quite unscriptural. Take Sheila Coleman Schuller for example. She not only took over the Crystal Cathedral for a while but turned it into a Pentecostal service. At that time many left the church. That happens when you do things in an unscriptural manner. Even young Bobby Schuller started off while on its own but now he’s wearing his grandfather’s robe for one service a week and he looks so unnatural in it. But he’s conforming rather than transforming. He’s really not his own Pastor yet as he is still under his grandfather’s shadow which even he says was very different than his theology. That’s like willingly standing under a dark shadow. He should know better. Where is his discernment? Ministry is not a generational issue it is a calling from God. Maybe we should all listen to that?
Joel Osteen says there’s a wideness in God’s mercy. Jesus said. Wide is the gate that leads to destruction and many go in by it. Pope Francis also believes in wideness. This video will help explain this principle.wideness
Joel Osteen’s Church should be called the Abracadabra Church. It should also be on TBN which I call the bologna Network. The word Abracadabra in Hebrew means to speak into existence and that’s exactly what the majority of TBN pastors do. They use words to speak into existence whatever they want. I don’t believe Joel Osteen does that but his preaching is about as weak as it can get. He always holds the Bible but do the words of the Bible hold him? He preaches the non offense gospel because he doesn’t want to offend anyone. Of course the one he offends most is God. Preach the word. Be ready in season and out of season. Joel Osteen changes that a little bit because when he preaches the word of God is always out of season. For the time will come when they will not endure sound Doctrine, because they have itching ears, they will Heap up for themselves teachers like Joel Osteen that will turn their ears away from the truth and be turned aside to Fables. What you hear from Joel Osteen is Osteen’s Fables. Whereas a pastor is not to be greedy for money, Joel Osteen most certainly is. He is a compromiser like Rick Warren. He believes that Mormonism is a Christian faith even though he says some of the things they do he cannot agree with but he doesn’t get specific. My guess is he knows very little about Mormonism. I would stay far away from this Abracadabra pastor.
Last year Houston was inundated with rain to the point where the whole city was flooded. Joel Osteen’s Church was very slow in reacting to the crisis. Other facilities began taking in the homeless but not Joel Osteen’s Church which was very slow to respond and only after public criticism. It brings to mind a good question. Why don’t all the mega churches in America have some sort of arrangement to build large homeless shelters in their cities? It would seem the homeless do not come to mind with mega churches. Perhaps even some of the pastor’s humongous salaries could be put to use to build those shelters and fund them. That would seem far more practical then buying Jets for those ministers. Jesus himself had no place to lay his head. Would he have been ignored by the mega churches as well? Mega churches should be helping the poor of their communities over that of supplying their pastors with luxurious homes and jets.
There is a new Bible out that kicks the Father and the Son out of the Bible. They are replaced by Allah and the Holy Spirit. I have a video for you today about how Pope Francis is trying to unite Christians, Islam, and Judaism together into one body. chrislam
This is the Bible without God and Jesus Christ. Can you imagine that?
Jesus was only a man and not God? International Bible students and Christadelphians would love this book. At the Pope’s recent Summit Rick Warren and Joel Osteen present. God help us all!
The Unholy three of Pope Francis, Rick Warren, and Joel Osteen are trying to con the world into Chrislam. Don’t be fooled by this deception and remember imposters will grow worse and worse deceiving and being deceived.
TD Jakes and Joel Osteen both have adjusted their views on homosexuality. They now believe that even though they are personally against it, they see nothing wrong with the government sanctioning it. In effect, both Osteen and Jakes take silent approval of homosexuality. And what does Romans 1:32 say about that? Each pastor take silent approval of homosexuality and by so doing, they applaud the action. How far away from the biblical core are these two pastors? They either stand on the word of God or they don’t.
A PASTOR MUST HAVE A GOOD TESTIMONY TO THOSE WHO ARE OUTSIDE- 1st Timothy 3:7. Does Jimmy Swaggart?
I HAVE SINNED O LORD! So why is he still preaching? He had sex with prostitutes while being married. Doesn’t anyone follow the Bible anymore? AND MY PEOPLE LOVE TO HAVE IT SO- Jeremiah 5:31. What about Jim Bakker? He was sent to prison for 5 years for fraud.
MY PUNISHMENT FROM GOD IS EATING MY HORRIBLE AND YUCKY SURVIVAL FOOD! Does Bakker Have a good testimony to those that are outside? And My people love to have it so! Oral Roberts played Let’s Make a Deal With God by staying up in this Prayer Tower until a certain amount of money was raised. He later claimed to have a face-to-face encounter with a 900 foot tall Jesus Christ. And my people love to have it so! Paula White has been divorced 3 times so does she have a good testimony to those that are outside? She also had an affair with Benny Hinn. And My people love to have it so! During the Houston flood Joel Osteen’s Church failed to open its doors for several days as a shelter for people that had lost everything. Why the delay Joel? Was that a good testimony to the people of Houston? And my people love to have it so! The list goes on and on in Pentecostal circles. But I have a question for you. When are God’s people NOT TO LOVE TO HAVE IT SO????
