Why not stand?

July 17, 2008

Very interesting article on our favorite recipient of a Heresy Horn, Joel Osteen, and his empire.  Worth the read.  Written by a non-Christian.  The last paragraph is telling.

How tempting it would be to just stand and turn my will and life over to Jesus if, in exchange, I will be led down a righteous path of prosperity, taken in hand by Jesus, and Joel, and delivered to my gilded acre of the American dream. Yes, yes, why shouldn’t I stand? Because who am I not to want to be saved? Who doesn’t need a little bit of Joel in their life, tonight, every night, forever, leading us from this dark place to our promised land? Together, hands joined, shoulder to shoulder, we will march forward into our glorious future. Delete the negative thoughts, Joel preaches. Yes, yes, delete them.

From Megachurch Preacher Joel Osteen
