Lakewood Church: "Stand Up for False Prophecy, Sit Down for God's Word"

These 5 minutes (from Joel Osteen's sister) say almost everything you need to know about the gigantic, slick, well-funded, man-centered and extremely popular apostate church:


  • False definition of a "Pastor."
  • False understanding of what The Word of God actually is.
  • False understanding of how God speaks.
  • False "Word of Faith" teaching that we can declare and decree things into existence.
  • Complete elimination of God's corrective Word-this "word from god" is more like something from a slick fortune teller who knows how to work the crowd and build up enthusiasm.
  • Puffing up the crowd with false hope and vague promises that can't be tested.
  • Blaspheming God by having the crowd stand up for this lady's "pile of Shemitah" false prophecy but then having them sit down when she (eventually) reads a Bible passage.

    An appalling and horrible thing has happened in the land: the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule at their direction; my people love to have it so, but what will you do when the end comes?
    — Jeremiah 5: 30-31

    Jesus asks "What Do You Want Me to Do for You?" says Victoria Osteen


    Here's a 44 second clip from Victoria Osteen where she describes Jesus more like Santa Claus or a genie in a bottle than the Sovereign LORD of the Universe:


    Victoria says, "When he walked through the streets, everyone he came in contact with, a positive change occurred in their life."

    Really?? Hmmm...

    Jesus answered, ‘If you want to be perfect, go sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.’ When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.
    — Matthew 19: 21-22
    The Pharisees came and began to question Jesus. To test him, they asked him for a sign from heaven. He sighed deeply and said, ‘Why does this generation ask for a miraculous sign? I tell you the truth, no sign will be given to it.’ Then he left them, got back in the boat and crossed to the other side.
    — Mark 8: 11-13
    ‘And there were many in Israel with leprosy in the time of Elisha the prophet, yet not one of them was cleansed-only Naaman the Syrian.’ All the people in the synagogue were furious when they heard this. They got up, drove him out of town, and took him to the brow of a hill on which the town was built in order to throw him down the cliff.
    — Luke 4: 27-30
    ‘Woe to you, because you are like unmarked graves, which men walk over without knowing it.” One of the experts in the law answered him, ‘Teacher, when you say these things you insult us also.’ Jesus replied, ‘And you experts in the law, woe to you, because you load people down with burdens they can hardly carry, and you yourselves will not lift one finger to help them.’ (vs. 53) When Jesus left there, the Pharisees and the teachers of the law began to oppose him fiercely and to besiege him with questions, waiting to catch him in something he might say.
    — Luke 11: 44-46; 53
    ‘Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him. Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live forever because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven. Your forefathers ate manna and died, but he who feeds on this bread will live forever.’ He said this while teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum. On hearing it, many of his disciples said, ‘This is hard teaching. Who can accept it?’ (vs. 66) From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.
    — John 6: 56-60; 66

    Joel Osteen's "Power of I Am" Book = New Age Pagan Book


    Wow! Where does Joel Osteen get these clever book ideas?!... 



    Oh yeah, he's copies his ideas from New Age/Non-Christian books...



    Olsteen has the same ideas as some real interesting people...
