Wrote one of the least controversial articles in my recent memory.
And created a boatload of controversy.
Controversy requires opposing viewpoints.
An angry, semi-coherent screed isn’t actually a ‘viewpoint’.
Just like banging a drum isn’t actually music.
(Try to identify a piece of music without the vocals and other instruments…I defy you.)
I’m going to say this as gently as I can…
…some of you Christians are embarrassing.
I’m going to attempt (one last time) to explain what’s going on with the ‘Osteen Scandal’.
For the record, I am NOT a fan of Joel Osteen.
I am a HUGE FAN of critical thinking.
Critics of Joel Osteen hated him long before the hurricane.
Years before the flood waters hit Houston, folks called Osteen a selfish, egotistical, huckster.
The storm attracted national attention and the critics seized the opportunity.
There was NO WAY Osteen would get credit for doing the right thing.
If he opened the doors of the church…he didn’t open them soon enough.
If he handed out groceries…he didn’t hand out blankets.
If he handed out blankets…he didn’t hand out shoes.
No matter what Osteen does…it isn’t what Jesus would have wanted him to do.
During a disaster, Joel Osteen’s sermon notes are irrelevant.
He’s a ‘false teacher’.
I get it.
When you harp at Joel about God’s will for the Lakewood Church building…
…you’re officially a ‘false teacher’ too!
You’re just less successful than Osteen.
The Bible contains no specific hurricane protocols.
Osteen said he was praying for the flood victims.
But God is telling you that he should do more.
God is talking directly to you about Joel Osteen’s faithfulness.
Your personal contribution to flood relief…
…is explaining how Scripture clearly opposes Joel.
Then, you turn around and accuse me of being JUDGMENTAL!
If you still can’t see your stupidity…beg God for wisdom.
Hypocritical Christians are bigger than the KKK!
The Ku Klux Klan is a hateful group of closed minded nitwits.
But the KKK wears robes and hoods, so they’re easy to spot.
You hypocrites don’t wear hoods so you think you’re better than the KKK.
You’re just as hateful and closed minded as the clan.
However, you’re a bit more arrogant.
You don’t think the rest of us can see you.
