"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

The Dangerous "Gospel" of Joel Osteen

This video from "Sixty Minutes" does a good job of capturing what's wrong with the Joel Osteen's "megachurch" self-help philosophy that substitutes for the Gospel of Jesus Christ for so many Americans.

Hat tip to Treading the Grain.

you and your church spend quite a bit of time criticizing others. Isn't bringing people closer to Jesus in any manner a valiant pursuit ?

The mere fact that his broadcast is family oriented and not divisive, in this day and age, is an achievement, though. And he has gone back to quoting scripture now and then, which he stopped doing for a few years.
