A Confused Message of the Most Dangerous "Evangelical"
Joel Osteen dangerous? Yes he is! Don't let that smiling face fool you. He is indeed a danger sign of "DO NOT ENTER" on the evangelical highway. This is because Americans unfortunately enter into his ministry via media, and his church service is watched on television by more people than any other Televangelist's worship service. Because of this, his ability to spread dangerous false teaching is magnified! In this clip, Osteen is saying something about pork being unhealthy or toxic, and that he eats only turkey or cows- but what is toxic is his misunderstanding of the gospel. Giving people dietary advise in church may be interesting, but it's not the job of the preacher. His job is to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ which is the power to save human souls from the wrath of God. This is to be our message to the world, not helpful hints that can make you physically feel better. Getting people healthy is okay I guess, but lowering people's cholesterol won't save them from hell.
