Back in 2006 I wrote a critique of Joel Osteen’s book, Your Best Life Now. I wrote this for my own edification and have never posted it – until now. I am regularly asked about my take on his teaching. I have placed this (nearly 9,000 words long) in “Your Turn” – a page on the desk of this blog. Here is the link for your convenience:
I do not take lightly the arrival of viewing Mr. Osteen as a false prophet; his words reveal what he thinks about God, Man, and the Scriptures. With no intention other than to inform and instruct, and maybe, even to persuade, I encourage you to soberly consider his words with Scripture as I have done. If you have questions for clarification, please ask – I’ll do my best to answer.
