According To Victoria Osteen: "When you worship (and obey) God, we're not doing it for God, we're doing it for ourself, because that's what makes God happy"??


Seriously, Victoria Osteen, I don't know what to say after watching this clip.   This is just the sort of stuff that gets the church so confused. These folks are successful, they look good, they sound good, they have a huge church and following...... But that doesn't make them right.
 Victoria Osteen Do good for your own self? Do what makes you happy? Come to church for yourself and not God? That makes God happy? Wow!"When you worship (and obey) God, we're not doing it for God, we're doing it for ourself, because that's what makes God happy!" AMEN!  Somebody help me up off the floor.

  1. So if I
    Drive drunk
    Sleep with every woman (or man) I want
    Slap my Mama
    As long as it MAKES ME HAPPY!?!?
    That what GOD WANTS.

    So when I Come to church singing
    "I worship you"
    "Amazing grace"
    I am singing it FOR MY SELF?

    Such is the message of the false gospel.

    1. Cop, I can't get over the idea that she said we don't go to church to glorify and uplift God but we do it for ourselves. We go to worship God. They are teaching false doctrine!

  2. Wow! The New Age influence has invaded the Christian church and if you don't know the Lord/Word for yourself then you can become so confused and "tossed to and fro by every wind and doctrine" The Word of God isn't changing! 1Corinthians, Isaiah 43:7-21 , and many , many scriptures let us know that we were created to worship and praise God the Only True and Living God. It`s evident that when Victoria Osteen opens her mouth to "preach" duck and dodge the lies that may fly out. Paul said " I die daily"....so why would we live to please ourselves when it`s clear we are to please our Heavenly Father. You see what happens when we try to create another "Jesus". It sounds like she is showing her own lack of commitment to Orthodox Christian Faith. Since when do we live to please ourselves, since we couldn't save ourselves. She sounds like a spiritual "Air-Head".

  4. When people get caught up in the "feels good" moment, they cease to hear with their ears the words of the False Prophets. Osteen is one of the largest False Prophet organization in the nation.

    God gets the Glory! Not us! Self - worship? Ear ticklers! Beware!
    I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. 2 Timothy 4:1-5

    I have always been critical of Joel Osteen's ministry, not for what he says but because of what he does not say; meaning his sharing of scripture seems one-sided and incomplete.
    Today, I realized there is false prophecy being preached. PLEASE be careful with whom you seek spiritual counsel.

  7. Just read this post and it confirms everything I ever suspected about Joel Osteen and his wife being the antichrist we are warned about in the books of 1 John and 2 John (not to be confused with the dude in the book of Revelation). I am disgusted!

  8. Seriously?? I've heard a lot from Joel and Victoria Osteen I don't particularly agree with, but I can't believe I just heard this! No, it's not taken out of context, I just recorded this. "When you worship (and obey) God, we're not doing it for God, we're doing it for ourself, because that's what makes God happy!". Wow...

    2. We did. And we as the Body of Christ in the US need to stop peddling this mockery of Christianity. It isn't just Mrs. Osteen...many of us promote a very watered down gospel, while other Christians, both here and abroad, are experiencing soul-searing persecution. We would do well to humble ourselves and share the full counsel of the Gospel. Trying hard to speak and live the truth in love...

    2. Anonymous; You are free to think and believe what you chose to believe. At the end of the day will you come to Christ or will you choose to believe half truths and lying spirits. Your agreement with Victoria Osteen isn't based on the truth of the Holy Bible , but it`s based on words that may appease your guilty conscience. You are free to choose a LIE over the TRUTH any day of the week. However , If you don't know what name to call on when your leaving this world or if you want to give you heart to Christ, HIS NAME IS JESUS. There is absolutely no other name under heaven whereby men may be saved. Your attachment /hunger to false doctrine & false Teachers will not save your Soul nor give you real joy and peace with God.

      What Mrs Osteen is saying SOUNDS GOOD when you've got a crowd of people shouting amen as she stands on stage.

      However compare with what she said (WITH NO SCRIPTURE REFERENCE) with these scriptures written by God inspired men.

      He must increase, BUT I MUST DECREASE. (‭John‬ ‭3‬:‭30)

      And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him DENY HIMSELF, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will LOSE HIS LIFE for my sake, the same shall save it. (‭Luke‬ ‭9‬:‭23-24‬ KJV)

      Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him DENY HIMSELF, and take up his cross, and follow me. (‭Matthew‬ ‭16‬:‭24‬ KJV)

      NONE of these scriptures mention anything about doing what make you happy, feels good or coming to church for yourself.

      If anything these scripture (along with 20 others)are saying the total opposite of what Mrs Osteen believes.

    4. Ecclesiastes 3:12 I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. -------------is that God inspired? Nowhere does she or the Bible say ----just do whatever if it makes you happy...because that makes God happy.

      God knows our fullest happiness is and will be found only in Him....Our obedience makes Him happy. Our giving Him glory makes Him happy. Our happiness from drawing near makes Him happy...on and on this goes toward our happiness. God is not dependent on our worship --- but we certainly are! So I think we do worship for ourselves - for our own eternal salvation. Praise be to God for being a Father who commands it - because humans are fickle and will worship anything and we have to be told what to do.

    5. I am sure God wants us happy, but does he want happiness to be priority over everything else (spreading the gospel, confronting sin, praising his name)

      And if we are going to church FOR OURSELVES then we need to stop singing worship songs for our Lord and savior, and get rid of all the crosses in the building.
      (FYI- the Osteen's "CHURCH" has already done away with the crosses)

      This is nothing more than low fat version of the prosperity gospel.
      Down play Jesus, lift up ourselves
      Jesus is NOT THE ONLY WAY
      Do everything FOR YOURSELF
      Because our HAPPINESS is MOST IMPORTANT

      ALTHOUGH the 12 disciples who were martyred may disagree with the Osteen's.

    6. Well after reading these comments, I realize that I had confused our choice to believe in God with the reason why believers worship God. I stand corrected. As pointed out, we worship God because he is worthy. We are to worship him through the good and the bad and acknowledge him as the omnipotent power and authority. I totally misunderstood what she said and commented to soon. I do not agree with her assertion. Thank you all for really explaining and correcting me.

    1. I can't believe she said that. I always thought that we worship God because He is worthy of all worship.. we do not worship God for ourselves. God seeks His own glory above everything else. I wonder if Victoria ever read, "If you do not die to yourself daily, take up your cross, and follow me you cannot be my disciple." I cant imagine what it is going to be like for these imposters on judgment day when they are called to stare into the eyes of the Jesus depicted in Revelation whose eyes are like flames of fire..

  14. Anyone following these two clowns will surely be lost. This is a different gospel than the one preached by the apostles. The whole duty of man: fear God and keep His commandments. God isn't concerned with our happiness, He is concerned with what's in His will for us whether we are happy with it or not. God isn't a simpleton like we try to think He is. She reduced God basically to a cosmic teddy bear who is here to make sure we are happy....basically the gospel of IDOLATRY!

    1. I know what Joel would say.

      "I know they killed your family"
      "I know your locked up and scheduled to be executed yourself"
      "I know the daily Beatings aren't Gods best"

      Then he'll make up some story about a young man who didn't make the high school basketball team to try and relate to there situation.

      Followed by "YOU JUST KEEP HOLDING ON. GODS GOT A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE"

      And he will say it all with a big grin and his country accent.

      THANKS JOEL.

    The Osteens preach a "gospel of self." Jesus, on the other hand, said, "If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me" (Matthew 16:24). Denying ourselves means taking ourselves off the throne of our lives and making Jesus Lord, following Him in obedience and submission. The crazy (as in, crazy-beautiful) thing is that when we follow Him by abiding—staying connected and dependent on Him, He flows HIS joy into us: "These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full" (John 15:24). Denying ourselves and abiding in Jesus leads to a supernatural degree of happiness and joy—but it's not the kind of "God wants you to be happy" we see in Mrs. Osteen's teaching.
