Lights, Camera ... God Entertainment INC - Devotional 52
Lakewood church is a church based out of Houston Texas. Pastor Joel Osteen is a well known author and tele-evanglist preacher. He preaches his version of the so called "Prosparity Gospel." Osteen gives his advice as he wishes to motivate people for God. I don't have a problem with telling people that God is good and loving. But for Osteen that seems to the one way traffic. Its very good to motivate people about God, so they can make decisions for Christ. But what is missing is the teachings of sin, redemption and forgiveness and over all understanding the rules, and why sin is destructive. I'm not saying to club your church followers over the head with DEAD = SIN, SIN, SIN! Infact thats Osteen main reason he tries his best to preach the way he does, He doesn't want to beat people over the head. Mr. Osteen Lifting God is what the CHRISTIANS must do, indeed. But without the mention of sin and redemtion. You will no doubt have false converts. Have you ever read Peter 5:8? If you haven't let me explain my feelings behind this. Behold your enemy the devil will go about like a roaring lionm seeking who he may devour." When people are facing tough times, sometimes just staying postive just doesn't work. When people face spiritual warfare , how will they comfront the forces darkness. Furthurmore, without any mention of Sin how will people begin to recgonize what sin is, and how will they learn to turn from it.?
Mr. Joel Osteen its not about what God can do for you... Its about recgonizing why the world needs Jesus!
If you continue with so called prosparity gospel , you will become what scripture says in the 2 book of Timothy.
2 Timothy 4:3-4 (New International Version)
3For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.
