Another Televangelist Falls from Grace

Joel Osteen preaches at Lakewood Church in Houston, considered the largest church in America, in this undated photo.

Before this revelation, I had the highest respect for this man, Joel Osteen.  Well, apparently, you cannot trust anyone anymore.  Joel Osteen is just another in a long line of fallen televangelists such as Jim Bakker, Jimmy Swaggart, Oral Roberts, Ted Haggard et al.  If Osteen’s beautiful wife, Victoria, is not in on this sham and scam, she should be constantly chewing him out for destroying their successful venture.  It was only a few months ago, upon watching his television commercials, I said that here is an honest man who does not do the things that the typical televangelists do.  Well, I was wrong.  The only one to maintain his integrity throughout his life is Billy Graham.  His son, Franklin, follows his footsteps.  Go, Franklin!

The only way I have personally found to remain clean is never to take any money or pay whatsoever for all of your volunteer activities—particularly religious and church activities.  I served as the pastor of two different congregations for a total of over 10 years but did not take a salary.  I had a job and lived on that salary with a family of five people.  In fact, I paid to the church approximately 15% of my income.  I continue to live hand-to-mouth even today.  I believe that is how Jesus did it.

Serving in Congress should also be an unpaid, community service activity.  That way, we would not have so many liars, cheaters, crooks, sex perverts, drunks, drug addicts, killers, and power-hungry career politicians in the Congress.  Sounds like a good idea?  Remember, the love of money is the root of evil.  To find out how a politician gets to be a multimillionaire in a few short years, just follow the money trail.  You will find graft, bribery, kickbacks, and shady deals.

      There is no physical healing in modern Medicine nor spiritual healing in Organized religion as both are corrupted by greed and inhabited by “business cons”.

    • JKnTX

      Why would anyone even semi sane ever “beleive” in any of these con artists?

    • Dragonslayer

      the person/CEO who runs the church/COMPANY writes the rules/SETS THE POLICIES.

      … and a vault to hold the church offering.

    • Mayhem

      … and US$600,000 was just a portion of the offering from that week. I’ve just about got the Bible down pat so if i had the looks and charm i could be raking in some serious coin. Meatloaf didn’t say what he thought about ‘one out of three’ :lol: and he ain’t bad to look at compared to what the mirror says about me. :roll:

    • max jones

      ….mayhem….Do you think you could do a con-game, using people’s trust to take their money? No you could not. It is certainly not bible knowledge that got him a half million per week. It is dark knowledge….the ability to look in a person’s eyes…and lie to him. You ain’t got it in you…… :cool:

    • Mayhem

      I could learn :grin:

    • max jones

      ….not in a million years….. :cool:

      I can’t remember who said it, but “A fool and his money are soon parted”
      “There’s a sucker born, every minute” -P.T. Barnum.

      If people are willing to give money to a religious figure OF ANY STRIPE, they have it coming. Can’t feel bad for people who think God has spending issues.
