Joel Osteen has a Mass Cummunications degree and no, I repeat no academic background in theology.

He is one step away from L Ron Hubbard.

I believe that Joel,s message is right on time. Let's face it, there is A LOT more to knowing God than making Jesus Lord of your life and repenting of sin. I feel that many pulpit ministrys focus too much on salvation and leave Christians void of the principles necessary to live a full and complete Christian life.I can't see anywhere in his message that the principles he is teaching are not Bible based.The true test of time will prove, i believe, that Joel is God's preacher called to preach and teach the true and living attributes of His nature. "You will know them by their fruits..."

Your service is like phsycologists do.It focuses on how to eliminate stress from people.You know people of USA are full of stress.
The organization you are leading is potential to influence people to your financial goal.
To the best of my understanding you are forming yourown disciples not the disciples of Jesus

I try and start my day off with Joel Osteen's e-mail to me every day. I look forward to it and it inspires me to be a better person. I love listening to him because I feel like I'm not alone feeling the way I do. I want the best for my family and also for mankind. Its a scary world out there, but I try and focus on the positive, that God is with us and watching over us and I always remember that God will never give us what we can't handle. I admire Mr. Osteen and I hope he continues to live the good life...

Repenting of sin and accepting Jesus in you life is what it is all about not being told what you want to hear to make you feel good. stick to the basics.

I stay away from TV evangelists like the plague, but I find Mr. Osteen's messages full of good, common sense advice. His articulation is easy on the ears and he never gets "preachy" like a lot of his colleagues do.
