Default Mega Church Scam

I saw this on the news this AM about Mega Church Pastor Joel Osteen over in Texas. Just shows you how the devil works and to be careful about "members" who try to misrepresent or discredit GOD's word.

Joel Olsteen is a snake oil salesman. If you've ever watched his sermons you would know that. He only spews cotton candy, rainbows and gumdrops. I've never heard him preach the gospel. That's his job, not making people feel good about being greedy.

No matter what you feel about him, you slander any business like that with social media be prepared for a HUGE court battle, and I hope Osteen sues the dog crap out of them !!!!!!!!!
As far as him and his church, it has always been hard for me to see pastors who are multi millionaires, but bottom line is the bible says to go forth and spread the gospel, bring all unto me, he has done that, got rich in the process ? Sure he has, but I can show you where his church and there millions do PLENTY AROUND THE WORLD to help others.

I've never heard him spreading the gospel, just his "God wants you to be rich." sermon.

He is a good motivational speaker but not much of a preacher. Biblically speaking, he is very weak (theologically) and tends to preach a man-centered gospel. Therefore, he does not preach the gospel.

Yep and if I'm not mistaken Joel made 30 million off the gullible last year.
