First of all, let me say that I just found out about EXMinistries this year. It is a BLESSING! I have learned soooo much from G Craig Lewis! About the Joel Osteen clip: I had seen his broadcast only a couple of times. I’ve noticed he never opens or reads from his Bible. Someone made the comment that he just seems like a mere motivational speaker. I totally agree! & by Piers Morgan calling Osteen for a follow-up interview, he was luring him into making that statement. It was already a part of Osteen’s belief, so Morgan pulled it right out of him, making a mockery of the Church. Church, let’s pray for those who call themselves men and women of God but denounce what is in His holy word.
I was really disappointed that day, and as a christian watching it with some non believers friends, I wanted to hide myself under the couch, ashamed of seeing a so called ”pastor” denying our Saviour, Jesus-Christ, and not standing for his word. So, why does he say that he serves the Lord? !!!
What a jelly back coward! If he can’t even stand for Christ when someone is only asking him questions, how will he stand if his, physical wellbeing, livelyhood, or even his life was threatened because of his faith. The only threat that he faces is the threat to his image, and the lose of those with itching ears in his congragation. At least Peter faced the true possibility of death when he denied Christ. But of coarse he repented and eventually was crucified for Christ.
We have to truely ask ourselves, are we willing to proclaim Christ even in the face of death. I ask myself that question all the time. If it really gets that bad, am I willing to die for my faith, even to the point of offering up my neck as some martyrs for Christ have done. If we deny Christ, Jesus will deny us in the presence of the Father!
WOW!! does he really know how many times he compromised the word of God????? He is good at beating around the bush, but eventually that bush will die and then what will he have to hide behind….what hypocritical statements….Oh well, if you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything…..what does he really believe?????????
He doesn’teven know himself what he believes in or stands for, you should listen to his Oprah and Larry King Interviews, if you can watch it all the way through. This guy is no preacher, it’s sad how he’s misleading so many people. BTW, I think Joel might be “trapped in the closet” himself. He always came off a little fruity to me.
You can’t serve two masters!!! Choose a side Joel and Victoria. The answer to that question should have been…..I would council those individuals on the word of God and show them what is written in The Holy Bible about homosexualality. And ask God to deliver them from evil! That is if you truly meant what you said about believing in the word. Is it really that you will lose a percentage of your congregation which translates into losing a percentage of your monetary revenue?
HES TOO YOUNG TO BE A PASTOR! COME ON THESE PEOPLE DIDN’T EVEN FOLLOW THE BIBLICAL PROCESS TO MAKE HIM A PASTOR! WHAT D U EXPECT! HE AID HE WASN’T A PASTOR BUT MORE OF A MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER! I can understand him feeling awkward about it, it’s a sticky subject, but he can’t excommunicate the homosexuals if they TRULY want salvation, because where else will they go if they can’t go to the church?
Why some of you seem to be mad at Piers for prodding joel with the question? He did the right thing! Instead of you being misled by what you think of Joel as a “so called man of God”, you heard it first hand, because someone was direct and bold enough in his profession, to ask the question. Was Joel bold enough in his “profession” to answer “thus saith the Lord”? What happened to being bold in Christ and not compromising to please man? Some of us Christians need to be bold like Piers! Piers is being 100% effective in his field! Are we Christians? Don’t place any blame on Piers because at the end of the day Joel’s answer would still be the same, only differnce is a man of the world made him confess!..How sad! I still love Joel! Love the sinner, not the sin.
May God have mercy on Joel and open the eyes of his spiritual heart! See to be an effective man of God , one cannot be timid and gentle…you must have guts! Joel is afraid to offend the majority of his congregation so he is answering in the safe mode which is very sad. I understand his love for family members or friends who may be gay and infact he can love the sinner but not the sin, so to say he would go to the wedding is putting his feet in his mouth. What he should say to them is I love you but I cannot support you on this one because it is against what the word of God says, so don’t expect to see me there! As a matter of fact he was stalling to answer the question when his Eve (wife) answered it for him and he joined in agreement with her. If he goes to a gay friend or relative’s wedding, what will he be able to say to them? “I’m happy for you?”, “congrats?”, “May God bless your union?” What???? What will be his purpose at that wedding? Seems as though he would stand for them rather than stand for God!
There is a reason why so many are against it, because we all agree that the marriage is wrong. Silence is agreement and if he chose not to speak up then that does speak volumes about him; but that’s his choice. How will it play out when the minister (whoever is willing to ordain such said gathering) asks the congregation, ” If someone feels that these two should not be married, speak now or forever hold your peace…” – and he says nothing????
Ultimatley its between him and God, I only hope and pray that those who choose to follow his teacings are not blinded by the hype and propaganda.
Excellent view Yahweh37 what does one say when they show up to a LGBT wedding and claim to be a follwer and proclaimer of the gospel. It looks like we as believers seem to have lost our back bone and became jelly backs going with any wave of doctrine or lack of doctrine. I was reading Luke 23 and our Lord graciously let me see something for the first time. Those who were present and demanded Yahshua be dealt with accused him of perverting the people. He did no such thing! They also made a choice to have a man who was imprisioned for murder among other things freed instead of him. That scripture would most assuredly apply to many today, we will side with darkness in light of standing for and obeying Yahweh’s word! Sad, sad thing going on here. Joel is not a chosen of Yah man of Elohim, he is chosen of the people, the people who do not want to be reminded that we were all born in sin, shapen in iniquity and capable of doing the vilest things, that is if we are left to our own desires, which his type of preaching promotes for no one is held accountable. It is too all our benefit that we as a body of believers, read and obey the written word of Elohim. Be not afraid to proclaim and speak exactly what he says in every situation he places, allows or we find ourselves in. By the way why the name Yahweh37? Many think those who call on God by his name(s) are in a cult or under false teaching when the word clearly says in Psalm 91:14 there is a blessing for those who know his name, there are many gods or elohims however he is the only Living Elohim and he has more then one name, I am greatful to be learning more of him and calling him by name and not just title.
This man is as lost as a needle in a hay stack ! How can you say you believe what the Bible says about homosexuality and yet not come against it ? The fact that he doesn’t preach against sin period tells me this man is not full of the HOLY SPIRIT ! Their is no repentance without the truth of Gods word being preached ! The Holy Spirit came to reproof the world of sin, and if you do not preach against sin , then the HOLY SPIRIT DOES NOT abide in your ministry ! And if you don’t preach against it and you allow it in your church, then you must agree with it .
People are so mislead and does not understand that sinners were not part of the Church of Jesus Christ ! The church consist of people that are born of Gods Spirit and have forsaken their sins ! Not people that live in homosexuality , fornication, and in sin !
THIS IS THE PROBLEM IN AMERICA !!!!!!! What we call the church is not the church ! How can this man or anyone call their ministry a church of Jesus Christ , if sinners are comfortable coming in and even joining the church, still living in sin with no regard to what God says about sin ?
Wake up people ! STOP CALLING SINNERS THE CHURCH ! We are so politically correct today in the church we don’t even want to hear the truth . Lets make this plain !
A homosexual, fornicator, whore monger , drunkered , ect… is not the church !
I mean people are afraid to hear the word false teacher, or false prophet these days ! We have many of them and according to Jesus Christ and the letters of Paul , they are among us !
Homosexuals can’t and won’t stay in a Church where the pure-unadulterated Word of God is being preached…I gua-rone-tee you that!!! That demon that’s in um’ gets hot and bothered. They’ll go where nobody is preaching against their abominable life-style…where homosexuality is tolerated!!! Again, I gua-rone-tee you that…those of you who have these under cover homo’s in your church just preach the pure-adulterated Word of God and watch them and their supporters start to disappear…
Everyone knows who Joel’s daddy is so why would anyone be surprised that he who attend a “gay and/or lesbian” wedding!?! To attend such an ungodly event means that you are in “agreement” and condone it. Christians can’t take pleasure in such abominations. He’s NOT a minister of the Almighty God of the the Holy Scriptures! Anyone who condones same-sex marriage, when the Holy Scriptures CLEARLY states that the union of a marriage is between “a man and a woman”, is NOT a Christian! That’s just plain filthy, vile and disgusting!!!
Have you ever looked into the audtience and see how many people worship at this mans church, this is scary… I wonder if these Pastors take seriously the position of pastor what it really means to be responsible for all these people souls is something that no one should take lightly…
Wow…Piers is right on point here—he gets my respect for both interviews. WATCH OUT—They gonna’ mess around and give him an unflinchingly, sold-out-ambassador-of-Christ to interview, and a multitude of folk will likely convert/get saved!! We know the enemy don’t want that!
Actually, by admitting to even having friends tells me he is in agreement with the lifestyle and not the Word of God. I wouldn’t be friends with a LGBT or any other fornicator. Attending an LGBT wedding is not the same as attending a wedding of an unsaved man and woman. While those two are living in sin, their marriage is not sinful. An LGBT wedding is SIN.
Piers was trying to break Joel. Joel was trying to stand firm. Victoria with that Jezebel spirit broke him by saying she would go to a gay marriage. When his wife said that Joel should have corrected her but because he is so weak he didn’t . If a preacher would attend a gay marriage they 100% agree.
I agree that he was trying to break Joel. I hate when reporters try to “trap” christians by continously asking questions that they’ve already answered. he kept saying that based on his beliefs and the foundation of the scriptures that he wouldn’t change his mind and that he believed the word of God didn’t change. and i believed he should have stood on that. Victoria should not have said she’d attend a gay wedding and stood on the word. Piers was starting to annoy me saying that 100 years from now gay marraige may be legal. Joel should have said: WELL IF IT IS IT’S STILL AGAINST GOD! GOD DOESN’T CHANGE! I wish joel had a little more backbone and let these people have it when they start questioning him about his faith. People are always saying Christians are the ones judging, but to be honest, it’s a lot of THEM judging us. I’m sick of it!
I mean is he a christian because he says so ? Or should we look at the scripture to see what God says ? A tree is none by its fruit . You will know them by their fruit ! Be a doer of the word and not only a hearer, lest you deceive yourself !
To Bree: No God clearly tells us as Christians to follow the law given by man but no where does the law state you need to attend a gay wedding. God’s word is not confusing to those who follow it. He never comes against mans law and expects us to follow it. As far as how he wants us to live. If you’re close with God you wouldn’t have confusion.
Whaaaat? At one point I heard him say,”..that’s not what I stand for..” when he was talking about that he’s not the kind of person who who would basically outright speak against homosexual marriage. But my question is, Pastor Joel Osteen, what do you stand for???
So sad that a Pastor could not take a stand and stand firm on it! Attending a wedding is saying I agree with you and the choice you have made. And, the insult to God about respecting the person(s) I am just wondering how dark it must be for him. Shame, reproachful and utterly disgusting to say the scripture says and not really have a firm enough hold to stand on it no matter what question was presented. A leader who can’t lead! Shame, saints we really need to pray, there is so much deception in the church, the world don’t have to mess with, tempt or try to destroy us, we are allowing it to be done from within. Father have mercy and bring us to the place you would have us to be, walking in the like submitting to your will and bringing you glory and honor with our whole life. amen
JOEL OSTEEN IS SOOOOOO WHIMPY! Why do he call himself a minister? He couldn’t cast dirt out of a rock!
JOEL and his wife are unstable and they are dangerous to christianity. You mean to tell me he would attend a homosexual marriage where 2 men or 2 women kiss each other after saying I do? A real christian should cringe at the thought of homosexual marriage…………I do! GOD never anointed him to become a minister anyway,He is just doing what his father and mother wanted him to do. THE people who attend his club isn’t interested in knowing the truth, It just makes them feel like they are good people because they attend church.
This is a classic sign of Adam and Eve on what just happen here. Did anyone recognize the fact that his wife answered the question first? She said she would attend and it seems as if Joel was trying to support her by saying I would but I wouldn’t go for everyone. That was him back tracking on what his wife just sunk them into……Eve beat the apple and gave to Adam who was not tempted and ate too.
The thing that bothers me the most is that someone could have been struggling on attending a gay wedding, and they just might go, because of what he said. We got to be careful of what we say because it can really mess someone up.
Let’s face it, he is all about the dollar. When your “god” is mammon you will do anything to get it and keep it. If people only would see these wolves for who they really are, there congregations would not grow like it is. Then again, the bible would not fulfill itself if these itchy ear, reprobated, lukewarm christians did not do the things they are doing……Jesus is so soon to come. Sign of the time. End of the end times.
I’m against homosexual marraige, but I will attend a homosexual wedding to “appease” my friends, WOW! Joel and his wife are something else. It’s not a surprise – they are chasing what most people are chasing, MONEY! When you allow Oprah to speak at your church, enough is said!!!!!
I will pray for these people, it is much needed, but I am concerned about the many that are led astray. WAKE UP!!!!! Sheep are being lead to the slaughter.
What we see happening now must happen and we will see more and more of it manifesting from the “chruch” in this nation – What’s in darkness will be brought to light.
Well Joel and Joelett, after this interview, you can probably bet that your homosexual members will not be paying their tithes any more and that you will probably have to call Oprah and her friend DR. Phil to figure out how to get your homosexual friends back after this interview.
for a minute there i thought Joel had developed a backbone but then it couldnt last. Fakes will always getexposed. what a joke. totally disgraceful. If you accept an invitation to a gay marriage then you approve it. Roms 1:32
Thank you so much to the warriors who gave their candid, and pain-filled testimonies. Any true warrior of the Lord is going to have them. This is what Joel, and those who are of his mindset don’t want, but woe unto those folk if they don’t turn. The burning lake of fire awaits…My God! Let us stay encouraged in the love of God, and by the victories of those in the Heroes Hall of Faith, in the book of Hebrews. Hallelujah & Amen!!!
please before u all start bashing joel osteen how many weddings have u attended of people who were sleeping together before marriage or people who constantly lie? sin is sin whether its being gay or lying. please people listen to his context of attending the wedding. he made it very clear that he would attend out of respect for the person not because he approves the lifestyle. he also said he would not just attend any wedding it has to be of a person close to him.lets bear fruit by loving pple not being inspecters all the time
REPLY: please before u start go bashing the law of God pick up the bible and read it.
When you go to a wedding, that states that you are in “agreement” with the marriage, whether between man and woman or same sex. If you believe that homosexuality is a sin, then WHY would you go to a same sex wedding??? It doesn’t make sense!!! Just admit it. Joel Osteen is a WHIMP! He does not serve our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!!!
When attending some one wedding then you are showing your support of their marriage.This will also make him a witness of this abomination. Why would a Pastor go to a wedding of a homosexual couple, when God says that it is an abomination? So, them getting marry which is impossible for them to do I don’t care who says it is, because God will not acknolwledge it, so that makes it impossible; they will still be in that same sin. So, why would he want to show his support for something that God is against. Shame on Joel and shame on you. I can understand if he goes to a wedding of a heteorsexual couple if the the marriage is Biblically sound. I know that there are some heteorsexual weddings that I would not attend, because I believe what God says not man. If someone slept together before marriage then, they were in sin, but if they get married then they have came out of that particular sin. So what are you talking about. If someone that once was in sin comes out of that sin, then I would be estatic. There is no justify this, try as you may. Also why would he be friends with anyone who is living a sinful life?
John the Baptist was a great example here. He would never have gone to Herod’s wedding because Herod married his brother’s wife. He calls them both sinners she was a bigamist. He told them to REPENT! I guess Joel is no John the Baptist. He is weak and is showing a bad example to the rest of the body.Not just him but he has a larger platform
I knew he’d say that. Why would he go back to Piers Morgan’s show after he made a fool of himself the first time? This is what the world will do to pastors—allow them the stage and call them out on their biblical beliefs or lack thereof. The fact that he went back and admits this shows his true colors, but then some misguided people will continue to back him.
You know, Piers Morgan wouldn’t bring a REAL pastor up there, because they will stand for the truth! Joel Osteen is so DUMB! Why would you go back to the same show that humiliated you just to get humiliated all over again?? He is just showing how weak he is, and I pray that people who go to his church will wake up, wipe off the mud off their eyes and LEAVE! JOEL OSTEEN IS A WHIMP, PERIOD!!
reminded of the stance of an older prodestant priest from NY. a caribbean fellow, his daughter is gay, and he loves her. but, going to her wedding was not an option for him, for he does not support her lifestyle. asking a gay professor for guidance in her field? definitely. asking that sme prof for spiritual/moral guidnace? no. but understand that sin is sin, is sin. so don’t ever half step. call things for what they are.
he already denied the lord. they ask him is Jesus d only wayt and didn he toldem he didn want offend nobody. and Jesus was telling his disciple dont b afraid of and wat they can do is only harm d body , and hesaid who ever deny me i also will deny. mattew 10, 28-33
THIS SLIMY WEASEL! He has jelly for a backbone! If you seen his whole interview, he didn’t take a stand on ANYTHING – he kept saying, “I don’t know”, “I’m not sure”! He also said that there are a lot of gays that attend his church! That confirms that he doesn’t preach against sin!!!
I think that his wife sways his opinion on most things, there’s something evil about her….reminds me of Ahab and Jezebel!
What does anyone expect from Osteen?!? He knows nothing about the Lord which is why his messages are empty and he would attend a homosexual marriage. Don’t be surprised if he one day officiates at one. The man is an inclusionist and is of the world. God help us all!
Why would he attend an LGBT wedding, when he believes the scripture says that it is wrong? Your attendance tells the couple that is getting married that what they are doing is all right with God. My daughter met some guy a few years ago, and after three months she said that she was going to marry the guy. I advised her against it but to no avail. She continued to plan for this day and she called and asked me if I would give her away at the alter. I told her no,that I would not even be there: she got mad and hung up the phone. A week later she called me back and said she had a change of heart, that the thought of her father not giving her away and me not even being there opened her eyes and caused her to think about what she was getting into. Same with Osteen, his absence of not attending his dear LBGT friends wedding should cause them to think about what they are getting into. He said that he has friends that are gay, and you mean to tell me that they have no conviction about their lifestyle being around you?
I wish that I could say the same about my family. My sister got married and I did not attend for the same reason. She asked me to give her away and I could not because neither she nor her now hubby (who have been divorced before) did not have biblical standing to get married. My sister got married anyway with believing family members present. I was called names that did not line up with my Lord and drew the ire of family.
Things will never be the same between me and my family, even if there is peace. But I did what was right in the eyes of the Lord and stood for His principles. the problem is that Osteen does not stand because he does not HAVE any principles. If he did, he may have only 300 people at his weekly gathering vice 30,000.
I have people in my life who are homosexual and in homosexual relationships. I love them and pray for them. However, they know where I stand, and that my allegiance is to to the Law of the bible. I do not hate them, but I do not participate in weddings, and anniveraries. Why would i do that, and then say, but I don’t agree with this lifestyle. I mean even if you are that jelly back, at LEAST keep it consistent. I went to school with ppl who came out of the closet and we are still in touch, but they knew my stance then and they know it now. My point? they wouldn’t even INVITE me to thier wedding…they wouldn’t! they know i wouldn’t come. They love me, I love and pray for them…but they just know. It makes a very distinct line in our realtionships. I don’t hate humans, but I can’t be around your sin..Just like i don’t accompany my heterosexual unsaved friends to the club, and guess what?!?! they don’t invite me there! Ifyou have homosexuals in your life, they should know where you stand. And guess what? Once they do, they will taper off or jsut simply decide to leave you out of a lot of things! and i appreciate that. they still call me for prayer though when something’s “wrong”. those prayers are ALWAYS.. show them the truth of your word. You have to take a stand. Jsut stand and ppl will get where you are coming from. top confusing the masses. I mean we clearly see Joel is of his father SAtan. But he’s confusiong the heck outta the “non knowers’/
My question is how can he have friends that are of this world? I have a aunt that is a lesbian and is living with another woman. She dresses like a man and acts like a man and I am not friends with her. If I see her I speak to her and then go on about my business. I love her but I just can not be her friend or have any kind of relationship with her. One day I was visiting the church my mother attends and she showed up with her female friend. I spoke to her and she told me to call her Miss and her first name. I thought to myself that this woman has be insane. I don’t ignore her, but we don’t have anything in common except the fact that she is my aunt and I am her niece. We are walking down two different roads.I grew up with this woman and we use to be pretty close. She was not always a lesbian at least I don’t think she was. All I can do is pray for her and minister the truth to her. I think that what Joel and his wife said spoke volume, but I wander did any of his members listen. I just pray that the scales will fall from the members of his church eyes. This is really sad and it makes me angry.
Osteen has good intentions, but he shouldn’t attend a homosexual marriage if he wouldn’t conduct a ceremony for a homosexual marriage. Attending would open up a can of worms that would hurt what he truly believes and the ministry.
Kudo’s though for saying he is against homosexual marriage on national t.v. and standing for the truth of the Word of God. We just need to keep him, his wife and all our pastors that stand for the truth in prayer. The times are getting tougher and we Christians will be under more pressure and persecution than ever before.
Good intentions? Do you realize how many people watch this blatant antichrist garbage? First of all if he is who he is saying he is why does he keep putting his self in the position of mocking God’s word. If he is indeed who he says is he would not be on there unless God told him to go there and if God told him to go on there then God would be the one speaking through him by way of the Holy Spirit. I just can not believe how decieved people really are. This man frequently goes on these worldly shows and make a mockery out of God’s word. Yet and still you says he has good intention. If this was about God there would be a different outcome. This is about self proclamation. So, please do not keep giving this man a pass to mock the word of God. Somebody needs to hold his feet to the fire.
I have a cousin and she and I were raised together so we are more like brother and sister. I was there when she was baptized and filled with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tonges. However some years later after attending college at Spellman she and a female friend of her’s decided to experiment and engage in a lesbian relationship. This started her down a wrong path that she has not made it out of. When she and her friend decided to have the “Commitment Ceremony” my cousin invited me. I responded to her that I loved her but I did not agree with her lifestyle according to the Word of God and that I felt attending her ceremony would be a show of approval and I would not be apart of that. Our once brother/sister relationship has never been the same and it hurts. But I would rather side with the Word of God than be an enabler and a co-signer to an alternative llifestyle. Please pray for my family as I pray for you and yours. We must continue to take a stand against this abomination!
In case you’re not aware, Spelman has chosen to take out God from their former motto “Our whole school for Christ”…New slogan: “A choice to change the World.”
Though you still see it as motto on Wikipedia, it’s missing from homepage. My classmate went back to reunion & was appalled by the absence of God in word, action and bookstore paraphernalia (new slogan without God, all around). Only mention of God was on Sunday & it was obligatory). Instead, the focus was on obtaining donations for the school and using the status of some few “successful” alumni to recruit unsuspecting females.
At the bottom of their homepage–right now, they are spotlighting a faculty member that just won a national publication for her book that details sex tourism in Brazil from various perspectives…”from foreign tourists and tourism industry workers and sex workers who engage in ambiguous liaisons with foreigners, to everyday Afro-Brazilian men and women who must contend with foreigners’ stereotypical assumptions about their licentiousness. ”
Spelman encourages lesbianism and fails to prepare women for a meaningful, God-fearing life. It is all about who you know and what you can do for me-the blind ambition is sickening…
Senior art show I saw filled with nudes-two of them I remember being of openly gay students,very visible couple on campus. Atmosphere so charged by it, students should EXPECT to be propositioned at least once. Being a dedicated wife/homemaker is frowned upon or not even seriously discussed.
Years ago, gay club in walking distance to AUC (Atlanta University Center), God only knows what all has cropped up since. Please don’t send your kids here if you care about their well-being and please don’t give them a dime-this is not a Christian institution!
Let God be true and let man be lie.He has clearly chosen man’s friendship more than the truth of God.This is called blasphemy against the word of God.Father we commit this kind of people in your hands holding the truth of God in unrighteousness.Romans 1,18
To Piers, heaven and earth shall pass away but God’s word will stand forever more … SN: I am glad that Joel at least says it’s wrong and that he would never marry a gay couple but why then would he go to the wedding … its like giving a good bucket of milk and then kicking it over …
Joel, you are wishy washy!!! I don’t care if you are my sibling, close relatives etc, I will not be at any stinkin gay wedding!!! That is still supporting that life style!!! If he truily believed the scriptures then he would follow it 100%. I have a few gay cousin of which one has been crying out for help an asking me to help her be delivered. I have not held back or watered down scriptures to appease her. I come straight out with scriptures that would open her eyes and set her free. Yes I am compassionate, but not to the point of comprimise. The word of God says, you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free John 8:32. How is Joel and his wife friends going to know the truth when they are there witnessing two grown nasty same sex couple kissing each other at the altar???? Joel, you and your carnal wife need to come out from among them and be seperate 2 Corinthians 6:17. Further more if gay folks still sitting up in your church and not being set free, what is that saying about you??? You ain’t got no power or Holy Ghost fire to convict and bring people to repentance. Shut your church down if it’s just a social club. Just saying!!!
When I think about the latter part of this interview, it quickly reminded me about James 1:8, A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. Look how easily this television host made Joel and Victoria Osteen rebut the word of God. The Word of God is the same yesterday, today and forever! I pray that the blind are pulled off of their eyes before it is too late…..
I beg to differ on only one point: the host didn’t MAKE them rebut—they just refused to stand! If the fire of God is in you and you hate what He hates (the sin), then ain’t nothing gonna’ come out of you but a CLEAR position & correction, where needed! Be ye hot, or cold, but not lukewarm!
Just by attending the wedding, doesn’t that say you agree with the covenant that the two are entering into? I’m so tired of this guy, I wish he would just repent and turn or find a seat and shut his mouth!
This guy is a punk !! That is not truly standing up for the Christian faith. What he’s doing is trying to please people and trying to make sure he doesn’t lose his church’s membership SMH Ridiculous ! Romans 1 :16
I’m not sure why ayone would be suprised at this… we all know that althogh Joel professes to be a Christian he teaches a watered down, feel good message anyway so of course he would go to a LBGT wedding… after all he wouldn’t want to offend anybody! I’m glad I go to a church where my pastor isn’t afraid to “offend” people with the Gospel.
Respect to people means telling them the truth, and not condoning sin in their life, Attending a gay wedding is like condoning it or giving it credibility. If God said not to do it, does that mean we show up to watch people disobey him? What if someone was going to rob a bank and invited you along for the ride? Forget the law of the land. Think of God’s Law. Is the law of the land more important that God’s Law? So MUCH confusion in Christendom.
