Joel Osteen Exposed The latest "star" among apostate Christianity is Joel Osteen, pastor of the non- denominational Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas. Osteen currently claims the nation’s largest congregation with over 47,000 members, earning a “Gigachurch” status. Lakewood has purchased the colossal Compaq Center, formerly home of the NBA’s Houston Rockets, to house Osteen’s church, with an additional $95 million in renovations. New York Times (July 18, 2005) reports Lakewood’s 2004 revenue’s of 55 million dollars. Osteen’s book of self-esteem, "feel good," self-help-guide titled, Your Best Life Now: Seven Steps to Living at Your Full Potential, has ranked number one on the "New York Times" best-seller list. Wxyz.com writes of Osteen’s enormous popularity, "In the world of religion, he’s achieved the status of a rock star. . ." In an interview with Larry King, KING asks: What if you’re Jewish or Muslim, you don’t accept Christ at all? OSTEEN: You know, I’m very careful about saying who would and wouldn’t go to heaven. I don’t know . . . KING: “If you believe you have to believe in Christ? They’re wrong, aren’t they?” OSTEEN: “Well, I don’t know if I believe they’re wrong…But I just think that only God will judge a person’s heart. I spent a lot of time in India with my father. I don’t know all about their religion (Hinduism). But I know they love God. And I don’t know. I’ve seen their sincerity. So I don’t know. I know for me, and what the Bible teaches, I want to have a relationship with Jesus. Hindus love Jehovah God, and worship Him as Scripture commands? All sincere souls go to heaven?...” Link to Joel Osteen Mitt Romney/Mormonism interview: http://www.mazeministry.com/frontpage/osteen2.htm The Leaven of Lakewood http://www.discernment.org/LeavenLakewood.htm Joel Osteen: True or False http://www.av1611.org/osteen.html Joel Osteen: Smile When You Lie http://www.apprising.org/archives/2005/10/joel_osteen_smi.html Joel Osteen Can't Tell You the Gospel/Doesn't Know Who's Going to Hell On June 20, 2005, Osteen sat for an interview with Larry King on CNN’s The Larry King Show http://www.rapidnet.com/~jbeard/bdm/exposes/osteen/king.htm Pastor Joel Osteen continues to lead people away from Jesus Christ, as he calls Mormonism a true Christian faith! NEWS BRIEF: "Joel Osteen, Interviewed by Chris Wallace of Fox News December 23, 2007 Transcript of this Interview: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,318054,00.html "WALLACE: And what about Mitt Romney? And I've got to ask you the question, because it is a question whether it should be or not in this campaign, is a Mormon a true Christian? OSTEEN: Well, in my mind they are. Mitt Romney has said that he believes in Christ as his savior, and that's what I believe, so, you know, I'm not the one to judge the little details of it. So I believe they are. And so, you know, Mitt Romney seems like a man of character and integrity to me, and I don't think he would — anything would stop me from voting for him if that's what I felt like." Not satisfied with Osteen's initial response, Wallace continues, taking a much stronger stand, one which is founded on more knowledge about Mormonism than Pastor Osteen evidently possesses! "WALLACE: So, for instance, when people start talking about Joseph Smith, the founder of the church, and the golden tablets in upstate New York, and God assumes the shape of a man, do you not get hung up in those theological issues? OSTEEN: I probably don't get hung up in them because I haven't really studied them or thought about them. And you know, I just try to let God be the judge of that. I mean, I don't know. I certainly can't say that I agree with everything that I've heard about it, but from what I've heard from Mitt, when he says that Christ is his savior, to me that's a common bond." As we have pointed out so often, Mormonism is a counterfeit Christianity whose roots lie deeply in Freemasonry and Black Magick Witchcraft. I find it incredible that a pastor like Osteen, who commands the respect of many tens of thousands at least, should declare to the world that Mormonism is true Christianity. Further, even if Mormons profess Jesus Christ, they do not believe in the biblical Jesus, for they teach that Jesus and Lucifer are brothers, and that Jesus was only a fine World Teacher. Sadly, Osteen falls simply in the category of apostate, Liberal Christianity. Please watch this video all the way through, so you can hear the facts, that Joel Osteen does not mention the Bible or Jesus in his popular messages and his even more popular books. When asked what he does during his morning devotion, Osteen does not say that he reads the Bible or prays; rather, he simply says that he searches his own heart to see if he is on the right course. He does not say that the Bible is his guide for such searching, and he certainly does not say that he relies upon prayer. The Bible clearly states that there is a way which seems right to a man, but the end of that way is spiritual death! By this positive-thinking teaching which is totally devoid of Biblical foundation, Osteen is opening the door to the appearance of Antichrist! Pastor Osteen needs to repent of his unbiblical christian teachings and get back solidly to teaching and preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus will not be impressed that Osteen preached to tens of thousands. http://cuttingedge.org/detail.cfm?ID=939 The Mormon Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah, was built to honor Satan, inside and outside. For the person who knows Satanic symbolism, the very outside of the Temple proves that Mormonism serves Lord Satan. No Christian symbols decorate the walls of the Mormon Temples. Schnoebelen, former Satanist, sets out to expose the Satanic roots of Mormonism, made especially urgent because Mormonism pretends to be Christian. The Mormon Temple is the spiritual focal point for devout Latter-Day saints, but the vast majority of them have no idea that each temple is specifically designed to be a "Magnet For Demons". In fact, while most people have never heard of this term, Satanists consider it most important when creating architecture. This video is most important if you are to truly understand Mormonism and the deep, dark Satanism which underpins the entire church. Only a former Satanist could ever tell this story!
