“One of the underlying tenets of the false prosperity gospel is the teaching of “positive confession,” or speaking and thinking positively about things you want to see come to fruition. Essentially, it’s a worldview that mimics a Disney movie with a genie-in-the-bottle far more so than Jesus Christ.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) Joel Osteen preaches the prosperity gospel. The prosperity gospel is categorically false, unbiblical, anti-Christ, and has been declared such by all sound Bible teachers and leaders in orthodox Christian evangelicalism.
Joel Osteen is a false teacher, a ravenous wolf in sheep’s clothing, and with a nice smile on his face, leads people straight to the pits of Hell daily.
I got to meet you all in Houston at your church right before the service. But what you don’t know was that the first time I was really exposed to your husband’s ministry was at Yankee Stadium…I have never really heard the two of you, I just get little bits and pieces. We took a bus out to Yankee Stadium with some friends and I was so impressed with everything, but with Joel’s message and how he brought the gospel in at the end and he’s inviting everybody in to accept Jesus…I got very angry at people who criticize your husband…there are people out there who are just vicious or angry, I don’t know what it is…because I was there, I can say categorically that that’s a lot of nonsense.
