Joel Osteen Admits He Is A Universalist

Christian Universalism is a damnable doctrine espoused by the likes of  Carlton Pearson, Skip Moen, and now Joel Osteen. The heretical view is predicated  on the New Testament declaration that God was in Christ, reconciling the entire fallen world to Himself. This  “wider mercy doctrine” of  comprehensive Inclusion teaches that death of Jesus redeemed all of fallen humanity back to right relationship with  God. In effect, Jesus became the way that God provided for every person he created to be fully accepted by him. They need never know Jesus. hear of Jesus, or come to saving faith  in Jesus. The way has been  provided so that  all religious roads could be accepted and Jesus is that way. Here are the heretics in their own words.

Carlton Pearson: “Every human being in the history of the planet was created in the image and likeness of God…God sees Himself in everybody, in every belief system…Jesus is the open door through which all of humanity accesses God, including Buddha and Muhammad or Gandhi.  We all go through the same door to access God…”    [Beliefnet Interview]

Professor Skip Moen: “What about the Muslim who truly desires to serve God and who embraces all that he knows about God, but all that he knows is what Islam teaches.  As far as he is concerned, Messiah Jesus is a Christian mistake.  All he knows of Jesus is the animosity Christians have displayed toward Islam, beginning with the Crusades.  Does this man really know Yeshua?  Hardly!  He knows a caricature of the real Yeshua; a caricature that he rightfully rejects.  Exactly the same argument could be made for Torah observant Jews.  What do they know of the real Yeshua?  They only know the “Jesus” that the Church has portrayed, a Messiah that they must reject because that Christian Messiah stands in opposition to everything they know about God.”

“…when Yeshua says “No one comes to the Father but through Me,” He is stating an eternal truth, not an evangelical criterion.  The eternal truth is that without His pre-creation sacrifice, no one, not even Abraham, comes to the Father.  But this is not a requirement of confession.  It is an ontological reality.

“… The evangelical claim that you must confess this person or miss the blessing is myopic and misleading”   [Posted Article]

Joel Osteen: In this interview with Oprah, Osteen parrots  components advocated by both Carlton Pearson and  Skip Moen when he states,”Jesus is the only way, but there are many roads that lead to Jesus.”

Joel Osteen is a Heretical Pelagian and Universalist!

Jennifer LeClaire, news editor at Charisma writes about Joel Osteen’s comments made to HuffPost Live host Josh Zepps about  gays this week. The interview is more than telling and confirms Osteen as a heretical Pelagian and Universalist. Carefully note that he frames Universalism in his “the wider mercy” doctrine.

It’s past time for high-profile, credible ministers to call out Joel and hold him biblically accountable for his flagrant heresy and pseudo gospel that eternally damns the unrepentant and unregenerate.

“…The mega church preacher, whom HuffPo describes as a “spiritual star,” was on the show to talk about his new book Break Out! 5 Keys to Go Beyond Your Barriers and Live an Extraordinary Life. Zepps read a line out of Osteen’s book: “It doesn’t matter who likes you or doesn’t like you, all that matters is that God likes you. He accepts you. He approves of you.”

Zepps then asked Osteen if that was true of homosexuals. “Absolutely,” Osteen said. “I believe that God breathed life into every person and that every person is made in the image of God, and you have accept them as they are on their journey. I’m not here to preach hate or push people down.”

Osteen also said, “We’re not trying to make this a little bitty narrow thing. Anybody’s welcome. We may not agree 100 percent on doctrine and theology, but the Catholic Church, our church, it’s open for everybody. … I believe God is big and His mercy is very wide.”

Joel Osteen Confronted By Soledad O’Brien On CNN

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!

Does Joel Osteen Even Know The Gospel?

On his new CNN program, Piers Morgan questioned  Joel Osteen about the issue of homosexuality. For the first time, Joel answers that homosexuality is in fact a sin.

But Morgan presses Joel further by bringing up Elton John and his homosexual partner. “Why are they sinners in your eyes?” he asked Osteen.

Wow! This is awesome! The Pastor of the largest church in America is publicly invited to take  the opportunity to boldly proclaim Paul’s enscripturated Gospel from the book of Romans concerning the  depravity of  man.

 In an instant Joel Osteen has the ear of millions of unbelieving listeners both nationally and internationally. Surely he is prepared to give an articulate,word filled, spirit infused answer concerning the condition of fallen man with the hope that is found in  Jesus Christ.

Did  Joel lovingly and winsomely  invoke “it is written” in order to explain the love of God in the cross of Christ, the  substitutionary death and the powerf of God in raising Jesus from  the dead as narrated by Dr. Luke throughout the book f Acts?

Weeeeell….can you say “awk–ward?”

Seems ole Joel just can’t bring himself to live out the promise of Christ to those who   represent Christ and his words truthfully and courageously.

“You will be hated for my name’s sake. . . . A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master. . . . If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more will they malign those of his household.” (Matt. 10:22, 24-25)

 Osteen’s  laughable,ignorant,hollow core,empty chested, cowardly response was not only utterly shameful, but once again demonstrates why Joel should be “behind the camera” rather than in front of one masquerading as a Spirit Empowered Minister of the Gospel!

rgh

[Morgan]…. “Why are they sinners in your eyes?”

[Joel]….”Well, it’s strictly back to what the scripture says. I mean, I can’t grab one part and say God wants you to be blessed and live an abundant life, and not grab the other part that says, you know what? You know, live that kind of life. So it comes back to the scripture. I’m not the judge. You know, God didn’t tell me to go around judging everybody.”
