Joel Osteen Confronted By Soledad O’Brien On CNN

22 Sep

If you haven’t watched this interview, you missed a great opportunity to see Joel deceptively squirm, crab crawl, slyly dodge, waffle, then bob and weave. To say that Osteen was uncomfortable is putting it mildly.

Personally, I was embarrassed and righteously infuriated to watch such ill-equipped handling of life’s hard questions from unbelievers. Joel’s anti-biblical clichés, soft shoe anecdote’s, and selective abstraction of biblical texts simply were no match for the CNN panel.

Osteen’s uncharactered ethos of “lifting up” resulted in him encountering full force “smack down”. Think that’s to harsh, watch it for yourself!

      Shirley, Thanks for dropping by antagoniz and taking time to share.
      In response to your question, full gospel by definition isn’t aperson but a message. The implication is that the “Whole truth of the Gospel” is believed and procplaimed without reductionism or selectivism. By Joel’s own definition, he refrains from preaching the “fullness of scripture” [whole counsel of God] andneither does he proclaim anything akin to the Gospel.[Christ sinless life-substitutionary atonement on the cross for man’s depraved sinfulness-repentanceetc] In fact, I challenge you to forward me any video of an interview or television program where Joel proclaims The Fullness of the Gospel in a public domain.

    Forming a mega church is easy. You start off by telling people “I’m okay, you’re okay” introduce some atmosphere and feel-good music…abracadabra. All one needs to do is scratch some itching ears and before long a mega church is in the making. “Be in the world, not of the world” is turned on its head for the sake of drawing people in, but drawing them in to what? A group of people who gather every week to feel good about who they are and what they do before God and men. Is this a place for spiritual regeneration? We use the term mega “church” very loosely then…no need to capitalize here.
