“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” — Jesus, Matt 7:15.
Joel Osteen is speaking at this year’s Hillsong Conference 2013. Recentlly, Chris Rosebrough decided to tune into Joel Osteen’s 2013 easter sermon. Here is a snippet of what Joel Osteen said in his easter sermon.
“I am not a victim. I am not at a disadvantage. I am full of resurrection power! Well you say, “Joel, I don’t feel very powerful. I don’t feel very strong”. But you can’t go by what you feel, you gotta go by what you know. Your feelings may change every other hour.
What you’re up against may look bigger, stronger, more influential, more powerful, that’s okay. The bigger they are, the harder they fall. You have an advantage. It’s called resurrection power. Even though you may not feel powerful, you got to put your shoulders back and start acting like your powerful. Fake it til you make it.
Act like you’re strong. Act like you’re well able. Act like you’re more than a conqueror. Don’t go through life intimidated when you have the most powerful force in the universe on the inside.” - Joel Osteen, Lakewood Easter Sevice, http://0352182.netsolhost.com/F4F/F4F051013.mp3: 56:56, 2013.
According to Joel Osteen you have the most powerful force of the universe? According to Joel Osteen you have to “fake it til you make it”? And he decided to teach this in his sermon on Resurrection Sunday?
Jesus warns people about the leaven of false teachers like Joel Osteen.
“Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. Therefore whatever you have said in the dark shall be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms shall be proclaimed on the housetops.” - Jesus Christ, Luke 12:1-3.
So why is Osteen teaching believers that they need to “Fake it til you make it”? Is this how Joel Osteen made it big as a ‘Pastor’ of America’s biggest church? Is Hillsong inviting a faker to speak at their conference? How can we trust Joel Osteen for what he’s worth if he’s prepared to ‘fake’? How is Brian Houston ‘championing the cause of the local church’ by inviting such a heretic to speak?
