Of Course Israel Houghton Should Think His Pastor Is The Real Deal !

I understand why some in the Christian community are up in arms over a comment made by Lakewood worship leader Israel Houghton concerning  his pastor and friend Joel Osteen. Especially when considering the many labels  that have been placed on Pastor Joel Osteen. But in all  honesty  shouldn't  we all not view the man of God who feeds our soul weekly as being the real deal?  There's nothing wrong with seeing your pastor/preacher/teacher as a man of God doing the work God has called him to do.

Rick Warren and Joel Osteen Are Part Of Oprah's Latest 'Lifeclass' !!


Oprah Winfrey's Life class program, just taped an episode in Houston that will feature Rick Warren and Joel Osteen.   As part of a six-week series of road stops to visit spiritual leaders and inspiring teachers, Oprah will launch a global discussion about self-worth struggles and dead ends with Pastor Joel Osteen of Houston's Lakewood Church and Pastor Rick Warren of The Purpose Driven Life fame, filming in the Hobby Center's Sarofim Hall.

While there has been no official confirmation that Oprah herself was there and everything has been kept very hush hush, she has made every other road stop in the Life class series. The FAQ information sheet for the Houston taping also asks that ticketed audience members do not bring any gifts for Oprah as they will not be accepted.

Crooks and Homos in the Pulpit!

There's a new book out “Crooks and Homos in the Pulpit.”By national talk show host Reuben Armstrong...Who is Essence Magazine # 1 best selling author...He's also the author of “Snakes in the Pulpit." In this book Mr. Armstrong has put T.D. Jakes, Joel Osteen, Eddie Long and Creflo Dollar under fire once again......Talk is that Mr. Armstrong has also come under fire for exposing what he perceives as the lies and deception of ministers, Pastors, church leaders and parishioners.
The book focuses on Mega pastors such as Bishop T.D. Jakes, Bishop Eddie Long, Joel Osteen and Creflo Dollar. Critics are calling Armstrong's book controversial and an a wake up call to the Body of Christ.

Armstrong who held a private conference with some prominent ministers and church leaders to discuss the book and his concerns about the rampant spread of homosexuality and thievery that has taken over the lives of many pastors and ministers.... According to Armstrong, "Crooks and homosexuals are spreading their lies and deception throughout the churches and the community like peanut butter on bread."

“Too many churches have forgotten about saving souls. That's because the pastors and ministers are only thinking about how many women and men they can sleep with inside and outside of the church, and how much money they can steal from God's people," said Armstrong. He also pointed out that pastors and ministers are misleading their congregations by teaching more about prosperity (material things) than about having a personal relationship with God.
I am not one that will purchase or read a book of this type....But I'm sure there are many who will....I also believe that there is an audience out there that will grab it no matter what the contents...How can you make such strong accusations like those without providing substantial evidence to support it? Can't you be sued for that?
Synopsis of the book:
Do church leaders such as Bishop T.D. Jakes, Bishop Eddie Long, Dr. Creflo Dollar, Joel Osteen, or reported homosexual Pastor Ted Haggard truly understand God's Word? If so, why have they become corporate CEOs, allowing money, greed, and materialism to take over their souls? These leaders are whoring God's people from the pulpit, while teaching legions of pimps, crooks, liars, and homosexuals, who pose as pastors, to follow in their footsteps. In "Crooks and Homos in the Pulpit," author Reuben Armstrong exposes the false doctrine of prosperity and "feel good" message that Mega pastors and Megachurches are using. You will discover what the Bible says about false leaders such as these men and the judgment they face. Armstrong points out that too many churches have become corporate meet and meat markets. Through extensive research, he outlines what really goes on inside the "house of worship." He exposes the shocking lifestyles of prosperity preachers, the sexual favors given in pastoral studies and Sunday School rooms, and the church "hoochie mommas" and "puff daddies" these leaders attract as their groupies.
