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.

Ouch!! John MacArthur doesnt pull any punches on this one at the Ligonier Ministries’ Christless Christianity 2010 conference. THIS IS A MUST WATCH/LISTEN.

Some of the most popular preaching in America presents a message of positive thinking. The alternative Gospel of Joel Osteen and the prosperity preachers forgoes the cross and advises us to merely “do our best.” At its heart, this is pure legalism of the worst variety. In this message, Dr. John MacArthur examines the alternative gospel of the prosperity preachers and explains why legalism-lite is still legalism.
