    Amen 100%

    By reading some people view of God, one would almost have to believe that Jesus never died, and there was no cross, no judgement 'laid upon Him'.
    One would almost have to wonder why on earth He came, lived and died. As "nothing changed" from the old covenant to the new covenant :rolleyes:

    But, if that is the God that they expect to meet, ...my bible says Matt 7
    2 "For in the same way you judge others, ( including God) you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."

    I would not wish to be in their shoes!!

    @Preacher4Truth Thanks for posting this and there are tons of other interviews that show similar. I really just can't bring myself to go look up anymore Osteen stuff, much less watch more of some of his 30 min+ motivational speeches. :eek:

    Why is it you request others to do the work for you while you pronounce you don't have the time? You requested one to summarize a video for you which he offered as proof against your assumption. Seriously you told him to offer a summary because you refused to take the time to listen. I even gave you a 4 minute video summary and you haven't addressed it.

    Goodness sake...

    After revisiting your post, I agree that Kindergarten Teachers are very important in a very young child's beginning of life. Get a bad Teacher and this child's life/mind can be messed up for the rest of it. Children are so very impressionable at this age. Same for New Believers In Christ. It's terrifying to think that Osteen may have "first dibs" at some of these children's minds.

    Please spend some time and summarize it so it can be readily brushed off for your efforts! Others cannot be bothered to listen and suffer correction.

    This exaltation of an angry vengeful judgemental God constantly discourages people from searching for Him. But coming from staunch Calvinists who believe that God decided a long time ago who He wanted to save, with the rest destined to judgement

    I disagree. Everyone has an opportunity to choose Christ! I don't believe God decides. However, he is already in the future and knows who will choose his Son.

    Agree...be merciful as your God is merciful. Forgive as you have been forgiven. Love your neighbor as yourself. And even His making clear that includes your enemies. Maybe I’m confused but doesn’t that whole passage on the Father's perfection say God loves not only those who love Him, but also those who do not love Him. All of it just gets skipped over ...the tunnel vision being wrath and condemnation. Vessels hell bent on destruction. Fitted for it even.

    same here. “with the same measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
    Matthew 5:7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

    regarding the “Sissified needy Jesus”.
    I have a question. Sons are sometimes instructed by fathers and mothers that it takes more strength to walk away from a fight. Heard before it takes a greater man to control his tongue and keep his anger under control then it does to let loose on someone. Is that not true and it only promotes sissy boys who can’t defend themselves? He came for those of low estate. Yet we look at vulnerability and weakness as if they are the ones with the problem. Which takes more strength and power: Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not” ...or wrath?

    Luke 23:34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.

    Why do you make an accusatory statement and not provide the evidence to back it up?

    With all do respect and with Christ love, I believe you were given, 1 example of many, and provided with evidence to back it up, with the 4 min video. Until you watch the 4 min video, I think there is nothing else that needs to be provided.

    The issue is not who is in charge but who is deceiving others. Christ warned of deception even though He is in charge.

    And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many... And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. (Mt 24:4,5,11)

    Joel Osteen is a false prophet and a false teacher. There are many critiques on his preaching and his Word of Faith philosophy.
    He has been quoted from the Larry King Show as saying this: ‘I know that I’m not a traditional pastor in terms of I’m just going down teaching scripture by scripture, because a lot of what I would teach is just how to live a great life.’ But Scripture is about how to live a saved life and a righteous life. More importantly it is about how to glorify God and Christ, and obey their commandments.

    You can ignore the biblical revelation of God, and then make caricatures of the position however it will not in any way alter the truth.
    God has purposed to save all the Father gave to Jesus.
    The rest are left in their sin loving ,God hating rebellion.
    That is why evangelism should take place.

    You need to watch the video,however it looks as if you are content to avoid truth.

    I suspect that the poster has already viewed the video's, cannot find a loophole. Now want to deflect and hide till it goes by and they continue to promote false teachers as valid.
