Okay, not really.
It’s easy to take cheap shots at well known mega pastors especially when some of them are under an official Senate probe for alleged financial misconduct. While the probe doesn’t include Joel Osteen – labeled by the media as America’s Pastor, he seems to get his share of lowblows and potshots. C’mon, admit it – you’re an Osteen Hater.
Maybe it’s the books, the smile, the Houston Compaq Center for Lakewood’s worship service, the mullet hair, the self help therapy sermons, or the 38,000+ attenders in his church.
I don’t know what it is but you want to find fault and then you read something like THIS.
Are we too quick to judge? For sure if you abide by Osteen’s philosophy:
“While I never like to hear negative things about friends and other ministers, I choose to believe the very best in them,” Osteen said.”
Ok, so I don’t love Joel [I’m on a first name basis now] but my level of respect for him has grown.
