Joel Osteen: Poster Boy for the Evil that Lurks in the Human Heart

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Pastor Joel Osteen has gone viral in all the wrong ways.

evilThe Houston megachurch leader has seen his name trend repeatedly in the days since Hurricane Harvey brought floods to the city, in large part because his 16,500-seat Lakewood Church wasn`t open to those seeking shelter.

Osteen insisted there were `safety issues` caused by the flooding, but he also said it was because the church was never asked by the city to become a shelter.

`If they would have asked us to become a shelter early on, we would have prepared for it,` he told NBC`s `Today` on Wednesday."

Huffington Post

Prior to Hurricane Harvey televangelist Joel Osteen wasn`t really in the national consciousness, he was just a nano second of brilliant teeth as we channel surfed, but now he`s become the poster boy for the evil that lurks in the human heart.

Pastor Joel Osteen has gone viral in the worst way, he (deservedly) has elicited more venom on social media than Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump.

As a frequent critic of televangelism I`ve been aware for decades of how Osteen fleeces God`s flock by peddling his heretical Prosperity Gospel, but now the entire world knows the frightful extent of his wickedness.

While mosques, hotels, department stores and other public buildings were opening their doors to the victims of Hurricane Harvey, without being asked, the door of Osteen`s church remained closed.

It`s a blessing that Osteen`s anti-Christian nature has been exposed; I can only pray that his evangelical empire, that has been built on the backs of the elderly and the foolish, will crumble.
