Joel Osteen comes to Belfast on July 3. He is a big star in the Evangelical world but his message is one which is not the full gospel of the Bible. He attempts to leave out anything that might be perceived as negative and then adds some of the materialistic and humanistic elements of the charismatic movement. Therefore God's people need to be warned against his influence
Useful. This was a very useful message. Very good argumentation in the presentation of errors.
Great Sermon! Dear Pastor Gordon Dane,
This sermon open my eyes about the false teachings of Joel Osteen.
I hear your preaching for the first time and I thank God we have the access to the internet to hear good doctrine.
God Bless You

Great Sermon! I needed to hear this sermon. I have heard so much about how great Joel Osteen is but I did not know enough about him to respond. After hearing this sermon I now know his message is dangerous and of the flesh, centered upon self and not the Lord.

Great Sermon! I'm glad I'm not the only one who recognizes the error of Joel Osteen's half-hearted teaching. Charles Spurgeon said, "If the Lord's bearing of our sin for us is not the gospel, then I have no gospel to preach." Joel Osteen certainly does not preach the Lord's bearing of our sin.

A necessary warning - heed it! I urge anyone who has gotten involved with Joel Osteen or his form of religion to listen to this message and compare Osteen to what the Bible says. Osteen is not preaching the same message, a fact which this sermon makes very clear. The true gospel is nothing like the lite "cotton candy" preaching of Osteen, but is instead mighty to save.
