    I am certain that someone with Gutfeld’s whit, intelligence and sense of humor will make this a must read. Let’s face it, in a world where a Professor Calls For Climate Change ‘Deniers’ To Be Imprisoned. (Seems quite reasonable to me) we need a little common sense and a lot of humor.

    You are dead wrong about this. Here is a video of Phil Robertson saying they WERE asked to stop using the name Jesus by A & E. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_0XS1vaX-M

    Her comment’s did address the unborn. The comment about “investing” was about more than education. Here is the full statement, “Kids belong to whole communities. Once it’s everybody’s responsibility and not just households then we start making BETTER investments. Remember, MHP is a radically left abortion activist who has often lamented over the cost of raising a child. If this was just about education then she would have said MORE investments, not BETTER investments. So if the collective decides you have enough children or the situation according to the collective, isn’t worthy of that expense, then the BETTER investment would be an abortion. On education that also means the community knows best regarding what you should pursue. If the collective feels that you are better suited to be a plumber, than the BETTER investment would be plumbing school, not medical school.

    The rest of the story on MSNBC AD… The ad on MSNBC does address the unborn. The comment about “investing” was about more than education.

    Here is what Osteen said about suffering:

    “There are some groups that say we should suffer for Christ, I don’t see it that way” – Joel Osteen.

    Here is what Paul said about suffering:

    “And if children, then heirs–heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, PROVIDED WE SUFFER WITH HIM in order that we may also be glorified with him.” Romans 8:17

    Here is what Paul said about prosperity:

    “He is puffed up with conceit and is depraved in mind and deprived of the truth, imagining that GODLINESS IS A MEANS OF GAIN.” 1 Timothy 6:4-5

    And both

    ” For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ.” -Philippians 3:8

    None of the apostles had health, wealth or prosperity. A pastor’s job is NOT to make people feel good, it is to amplify the light of CHRIST and teach them to do the same. That is certainly not what Osteen does.

    Apparently you are ignorant of scripture, as someone in his 3rd year of seminary I offer some scriptures and thoughts:

    “There are some groups that say we should suffer for Christ, I don’t see it that way” – J. Osteen.

    “He is puffed up with conceit and is depraved in mind and deprived of the truth, imagining that GODLINESS IS A MEANS OF GAIN.” 1 Timothy 6:4-5

    How about the entire context and words in the bible and Christ’s word about suffering? “And if children, then heirs–heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, PROVIDED WE SUFFER WITH HIM in order that we may also be glorified with him.” Romans 8:17

    If you think that’s out of context, look up “suffer” in your concordance. People should leave church determined to be more like Christ, not just “feeling good about themselves”. There is no talk of repentance. What Osteen preaches is Christless Christianity.

    What I am saying IS NOT a “Hellfire and Brimstone” message, it is the contextual message of the bible. Paul says here,

    ” For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ.” -Philippians 3:8

    None of the apostles had health, wealth or prosperity. If I were to pick one verse I would like Osteen to hear it would be the one above.

    Let God’s word convict you. I pray for the people who swallow his message. A pastor’s job is not to make people feel good, it is to amplify the light of Christ and teach

    Sound familiar?

    Wow they have removed every post I made. That’s what I get for criticizing Hallowell for his creme puff interview and giving a thorough biblical rebuttal of Osteen. That is unbelievable

  • July 26, 2012 at 6:17pm

    Amen, Spurgeon was awesome, reformed and dead on right!

  • July 26, 2012 at 1:43pm

    I find it interesting that you contradict what Joel said. He said he was open to criticim. I think you are right though, nothing we say will deter him.

    Clearly the issue is not that we should just seek another church. No one who criticizes him goes to his church. Yet for those of us who follow the bible it is devestating to see the false gospel being preached and accepted by a million people. what evidence do I back that up with? Much but I will just quote these two verses from 1 Timothy:

    “He is puffed up with conceit and understands nothing…and is depraved in mind and deprived of the truth, imagining that Godliness is a means of gain.” 1 Timothy 6:4-5

    Doesn’t that sound like the guy you listen to every Sunday? I have heard him preach and It does to me.

  • July 26, 2012 at 1:33pm

    For everybody claiming that Christians shouldn’t say anything negative about Joel Osteen:

    Here is what the bible clearly says,

    “[We] must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that [we] may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to REBUKE those who contradict it.” Titus 1:9

    The doctrine of prosperity is an abomination. The evidence?

    “He is puffed up with conceit and understands nothing…and is depraved in mind and deprived of the truth, imagining that Godliness is a means of gain.” 1 Timothy 6:4-5

    Who does that sound like?

  • July 26, 2012 at 1:19pm

    Beautifully said. A Pastors job is to amplify the light of Christ, and make disciples who will do the same. Osteen is just proud that “people go home feeling good.” The same could be said of a prostitute.

  • July 26, 2012 at 1:14pm

    You are so right. They are promoting this “Restoring Love” event and then meet and have this creme puff interview with Osteen, HUGE mistake. A sure way to get real Christians to stay away in droves, by appearing to align themselves with this guy.

  • July 26, 2012 at 12:47pm

    He is not a “fellow follower of Jesus Christ”, that’s the point. God didn’t create you to decide whether you like Him or not. “Romans 9:21 “Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for dishonorable use?” Your actions will have consequences.

  • July 26, 2012 at 12:39pm

    You say he has omitted the cross but he is “A-OK in your book.” Wow. I think I’m puking in my mouth. I am sure I don’t want to read YOUR book.

  • July 26, 2012 at 12:28pm

    Hallowell that was the biggest creme puff interview ever. I thought you were going to genuflect and kiss his ring. What a disservice to your readers. Pitiful.
