    Default The Lakewood Church

    Many people don't like Joel Osteen and will argue about him until the day they die.
    That's too bad for them.
    Joel Osteen is on TV for 25 minutes every week.
    But one can view "live" the Sunday morning Lakewood Church service in it's entirety every week with 2 Sunday morning live services that will replay if you miss the time.
    And they generally last around 1 1/2 hours.

    This church has excellent praise and worship music, mixed with altar calls and guest speakers, and finishes with what is usually a 45 minute sermon by Joel and then a big altar call at the finish, not like the one you see on his 25 minute show.

    So yes, I say don't watch Joel Osteen anymore.
    If you don't have a home church or are just home on any given Sunday morning, then watch the Lakewood Church service
    and see why many believe the Spirit of God moves in this church and see the real reason why he has close to 50,000 members.

    That's Lakewoodchurch.com

    Ive watched it.
    It's very uplifting.
    Sometimes this is what one needs at the end of a week.

    Or the beginning, your choice.

    All i ever heard him say is "oh yes the lord wants to make you rich the lord wants to bless you as soon as you donate to me" 10 of 10 sermons same thing.

    honestly i think all tv preachers are satanic and those who watch them dont know the spirit of the lord. this might sound harsh but my breed are kicked around here all the time and i figure its time your kind hear some truth. we see it clear behind his screw face and crooked smile. His church is COVERED with pagan symbols too. He even admitted that he runs a business and the product is the lord and he only tells people what they want to hear, he said this on tv. Do you think people who make billions and donate nothing go to heaven?

    The lord never says he wants you to be rich and have no problems. Why do people pay billions for him to tell him that? While they walk past the guy in downtown preaching truth for free. The guy who has nothing cause he gave all he had to the lord. I am sorry but.... I dont think me talking is going to do any good.
    The only way I can explain it is you can just see through things when you learn how to see and the whole worlds divided by this. I cant explain why nobody likes the tv preachers to somebody that doesnt already see it. Its just a aura of darkness, no other way to really explain the way people see it. Its those who believe that kind of stuff that I really cant understand.

    I generally used to just accept him with a grain of salt. I figured he had his niche and that anyone with a brain and sensitvity to the Holy Spirit would realize that.
    When he lost me was when he said on the Larry King show that Jesus was not the only way to heaven.

    he preaches this kind of stuff everyday and people love to hear it but none of it has anything to do with the bible or goodness at all. its all about self serving.

    Actually anybody who knows anything about 'satanic' practices knows this is the foundations of the mindstate that he teaches. To create your own reality like you are your own diety.

    AND LOOK AT HIS FACE! If you trust a face like that stay out of the streets and away from casinos cause you dont have a chance. If you cant call that a liars face you dont know what one looks like. Seriously.

    Yea Joseph dude woships something thats not Jahovah. This is just hints hes putting out. Like I was saying I have dabbled in other beliefs. I am not even christian but I used to be and I know what its all about and I try to warn Christians when they are being misled. This here is evidence hes trying to creep in another path and he already set their mindstate straight to 'pagan' ways.

    Allen,
    There are some very ill people in this world, and just like Joel said, we simply have to let Jesus deal with them.

    Allen ~ He did not get where he is because the holy spirit moved. He got his inheritance and his 'business' from his dad who was also a famous preacher.

    Willie ~ Yea I am sick and what do I know about it. I just live directly across the street less than 0.1 miles away and seen things going on there you cant imagine. Also my stepdad lives down the street from his house. After what I have seen and you have not the only sick things is calling other sick when you have not ever even seen him and I see him in his personal life. Its not the same image you are sold I can say that much. The liar face should have told you that.

    You and your stepdad both live in that same fancy neighborhood? Shouldn't we, then, group both of you with Joel? After all you are both affluent neighbors of his. (You said it, not me.)

    Are we really going to attack each other over Joel Osteen? Osteen is a smooth talker and more of an inspirational speaker (tool bag). He knows how to make people feel good. Prosperity gospel is a crock and not biblical. If you can refute that, please cite the scripture that supports otherwise. I can guarantee there are more scriptures speaking of idolatry of money then there are about going out and cashing in big time...

    Not attacking this guy. But he claims to also live on Del Monte Drive...... and if you know anything about Houston, I don't have to say a word more.
