joel osteen

Recently I preached a message at Crossroads wherein I "called out" a number of people who are ostensibly Bible teachers. I was in the midst of telling people that they have to think for themselves; they have to test everything they hear a preacher or teacher say against what the Bible says. Just because somebody's holding a Bible it doesn't mean what they say is authoritative. Just because they quote the Bible doesn't mean they're using it right. So I mentioned a few names - Joel Osteen, Creflo Dollar, Joyce Meyer, and Benny Hinn. Now I don't think it would take much convincing to show people that Benny Hinn is cracked out. There are a number of people at CR that do listen to Osteen and Meyer; I'm not sure about Creflo Dollar but I think there are a few that do.

Anyway there was a bit of rumbling after I mentioned those names - people thinking that I was overstepping my bounds and being judgmental in calling someone out. I wrote up the following thing on Joel Osteen, which you may want to read if you're so inclined. These are some of the problems I have with what he teaches. Link here.
