I for one do not understand how any Christians can think that Joel Osteen is a sound biblical teacher. I have watched his TV program and thought to myself ‘Where is Christ in all of this?’. Why does his book ‘Your Best Life now’ appeal to so many people?

The reason is because Joel’s message is simply the gospel of YOU and is a man-centered message which appaeals to the flesh and not a Christ-centered one which demands that the flesh is crucified with all its sinful passions.  Your transformed life is NOT the gospel and sadly, this is what many people think especially those who go to these type of chruches . Listen to this video as John Macarthur explains why Joel Osteen is a false teacher.

    I watched him on tv once. Time after when I read and heard criticisms of him, I looked back, and realized that his “evangelist” message didn’t talk about the Cross (if it was mentioned, it was brief, or I just forgot…), it was abut happy stories and how you can have a good life.

    I agree, thank John Macarthur

    As long as we are incorporating Christ into the messages that are “preached” then there is no problem with hearing messages on how we can have a good life.. Without Christ, life is meaningless.. Without Eternity in mind as our ultimate goal, life is pointless… God wants us to enjoy everyday of our lives as best as we can (in a fallen world) and live fruitfully and joyfully (nothing wrong with that), but we must always have an eternal mindset and live in relationship with our Heavenly father… That is, afterall why God created us.

      Butthe problem is where you put the emphasis. Joel puts the emphasis on us having a good life and no emphasis on what our biggest problem is which is sin

        It’s too bad he doesn’t preach the gospel. I feel sorry for those attend his show, because in twinkle of an eye their lives could end and never have had a chance to accept Jesus as truly their Lord and Savior.

    from Lebanon,
    I really feel sorry for a such poor Osteen who has many followers, if gays go to heaven, than satan will enter heaven too.
    go back to God’s words.
    Blessings,
    Touma
