Well' Osteen is teaching people how to be happy and how to live a better life. And the Bible does say, "If ye who have ears, let them hear; and if ye who have eyes, let them see." It's been given to us all to see and hear the Word of GOD. All you have to do is accept and receive the Word of GOD. I mean, what more can you ask for?!

Happy, happy, happy! Happy, happy, happy! Happy, happy, happy, happy, haaappy!!

Well, if you are wondering what I'm doing here, I am going to ask you, what are you doing on the Black Forum? Is it okay for you to be on the black forum and yet, you are questioning me about being on this forum? I think not!! Hee, hee, hee!

Any who!!!! Most televangelist are considered false prophets now-a-days!! Especially since the incidences with Jim Baker and Jimmy Swaggart back in the late 1980's. They are televangelist and at the same time, they are business people as well. Televangelism is how those preachers earn a living!! And there is nothing wrong with how they earn a living per se, but it is what is associated with televangelism now-a-days. Some of them have gotten caught in adultery, homosexuality, cheating the church out millions of dollars, and etc. But it does not mean that all televangelist are sex perverts and dishonest thieves! You are suppose to judge individual by their works, not by other people's works.

Me personally, I try to be around other Christians who are giving and compassionate in the Lord with love and kindness. And Christians who are sincere about their faith and beliefs in GOD. So I don't need to be around Christians who are wishy-washy and selfish!!! Hypocrites!!! Sneaky!!! Lying!!! And Greedy!!!

And although Joel Osteen is trying to get paid, so far, I have not found any reason to judge and attack his character!!!
