8.59 Million fans on Facebook and 50,000 packed into his megachurch is only the tip of the iceberg for Joel Osteen empire, which is about to beam its Name-it-Claim-it prosperity "gosepel" to satellite listeners everywhere on his new channel. Millions tune in from around the world each week to Osteens webcast. His big reach will only get bigger at the end of this month, as Joel Osteen Radio launches on SiriusXM Sept. 29th. That means his Lakewood Church services will stream LIVE on the all new Joel Osteen Radio channel 128.
To advertise the event and get more ticked ears to tune in, he is giving away 2 tickets to SiriusXM's "exclusive invitation-only Town Hall event with Joel and Victoria Osteen on September 29th – including round-trip airfare and two nights hotel stay in NYC."
Unfortunately, the "gospel" Osteen shares is not really the Gospel of Jesus Christ at all, which makes Osteen a very dangerous teacher indeed.
Last week, Joel posted on his Facebook Page the following:
Never mind that Moses was dead for the miracles Daniel and Joshua saw, or that 52,000 shared this post.
Just the week before, his wife Victoria opined this, with Joel standing next to her and cheering her on:
"I just want to encourage every one of us to realize that when we obey God, we're not doing it for God — I mean, that's one way to look at it — we're doing it for ourselves, because God takes pleasure when we're happy. That the thing that gives Him the greatest joy.
So, I want you to know this morning: Just do good for your own self. Do good because God wants you to be happy. When you come to church, when you worship Him, you're not doing it for God really. You're doing it for yourself, because that's what makes God happy. Amen?"
Neither Victoria nor Joel have retracted these statements or repented of this unbiblical theology.
