What do you think of Joel Osteen as a spiritual leader?
I think he is like a visit to a cupcake bakery in a nice old pedestrian part of town on a nice evening. His cupcakes are so good they're decadent. Indulge in the decadence of his spiritual food.
His lessons become a problem if that's all your nutrition.
People need lessons on
How to Think (Reasoning, maybe some Socratic dialogues)
The Occult and the Paranormal
Scorecarding the G7 (G8 or whatever number you want to use) countries
= = =
Yes, there is a richness in God's love.
Yes, there is prosperity in God's love.
Yes, there is favor in God's love.
But there is a lack of wisdom in his packaging of scripture.
Yes, he is a healthy looking man.
Yes, he is a beautiful looking man.
Yes, he speaks beautifully.
He is idiosyncratic, so don't get me wrong.
In conclusion, don't be mislead by his sweetness. Success for the spirit is more complicated than his message and more complicated than the Bible.
