He is not like your typical evangelist. His is a positive, feel good message, inclusive of everyone. I always make time to watch him every Sunday. Once Covid is over, I hope he brings, a Night of Hope back to San Francisco again soon. The 2015 celebration was a not to be missed experience.

He’s a salesman selling a product. And he’s damn good at it. The guy is a millionaire several times over. (A hundred times over, IIRC.) For all the preaching he does, it’d be nice to see him put his money where his mouth is. But I doubt that’ll happen anytime soon.

All of religion is a scam. It's all bs because you could get the same release of neurotransmitters by meditating for free or running in the woods or hugging your child. If this system in which another person works to trigger your neurons to fire up that good stuff is beneficial to you, then I see no problem with you paying for it. It's a service no different than having a life coach. Joel just appears to be charging premium rates.

This one made me chuckle a lot back in the day.
"HOUSTON, TX—Although Joel Osteen took flak over the weekend for closing up his church to flood victims and all but disappearing during the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, the megachurch pastor reportedly returned to the city on his luxury yacht “S.S. Blessed” to make amends Tuesday by tossing copies of Your Best Life Now to stranded flood survivors."

What the fuck is wrong with you people - during the hurricane in Houston he refused to open his church to offer shelter to people - kind of the opposite of what a Christian should do. He is a slimy dirt bag getting rich off of his flock - what pastor should have millions of dollars and a private jet?
|by Anonymous||reply 23||02/21/2021|
R20, More from your link: Osteen also paused for brief photo ops with several families, the smiling pastor briefly allowing them to board his yacht as his professional photography team got shots of the pastor together with the sobbing, distraught flood victims, though the pastor was careful to not stand too close to the mud-caked refugees.
Sources confirmed that the pastor then had his assistants help the families back into their makeshift lifeboats or tree logs on which they were floating through the city.
Once thought his motivational speeches inspirational, although I would NEVER send him any money. Now I realize he's a selfish, self-righteous 100% phony.
Most preachers/pastors spend time visiting the sick & distraught, counseling the needy and connecting them to community resources. Some churches serve as informal employment agencies or centers for AA meetings. Osteen is an example of what's wrong with some of today's spiritual leaders.

He wouldn't open his church, which is the size of a stadium, to help flood victims of Hurricane Harvey. Meanwhile, mosques around Houston opened up to provide shelter and help, even on a muslim holiday.
And where is he now, with so many Texans in dire straits?
But oh, you bet, as soon as they are ready to drop cash into his collection baskets, he'll be open for business again.
Tell me again what there is to admire about him?

He’s a total charlatan. His “prosperity gospel” is really “prosperity for me!” gospel. He lives in a McMansion in River Oaks (Houston’s original, and continuing “ high society “ neighborhood. He is constantly hawking some sort of shit, gets paid a fortune for his touring shows and syndicated services, and generally using religion as a means to make himself richer.
At least he learned a little something from his hurricane Harvey PR disaster and opened the church as a warming station during the horrible freeze this past week.

Every ten years or so there's another televangelist scam artist who comes along. Different suit, different medium, different face, same scam.
They all get caught after questions are raised about either inappropriate financial management or about sexual indiscretions.
It surprises me how people forget the past and follow whatever new televangelist comes along.

He had gayface for days when he was younger. I always thought his wife was pretty but has a heavy dark brow, which looks good on their son. As far as preachers go I never minded Osteen. But they're all hypocrites and small minded.
