Perhaps, you should take your own advice?

I've listened to several of his sermons. He's just a bit "off".

You can judge me as you will but I am defending his preaching which is all about the gospel.

Coming from vizio, being a "bit" off is actually a complement.

And, you can defend any thought, not at variance with your own expectations.
But that does not make it the Gospel of Christ, rather it's the gospel according to men.

Why the personal attacks?

I'm a bit leery of someone that claims to have conversations with God. He also tends to lean toward the Word of Faith heresy.

“It all began in1997, when I was on vacation with my wife, Wendy… I distinctly heard the voice of the Lord on the inside. It wasn’t a witness of the Spirit. It was a voice, and I heard God say clearly to me: “Son, you are not preaching grace.”

I said, “What do You mean, Lord? That’s a low blow. That’s a real low blow!” I added, “I’m a preacher of grace. I have been a grace preacher for years, and like most preachers, I preach that we are saved by grace!”

He said, “No. Everytime you preach grace, you preach it with a mixture of law. You attempt to balance grace with the law, like many other preachers, and the moment you balance grace, you neutralize it. You cannot put new wine into old wineskins. You cannot put grace and law together.” He went on to say, “Son, a lot of preachers are not preaching grace the way Apostle Paul preached grace.” He then ended emphatically with this statement that revolutionized my ministry: “If you don’t preach grace radically, people’s lives will never be radically blessed and radically transformed.”

That powerful word from the Lord jolted me, and I realized for the first time that I had indeed been preaching a grace message that was tempered with the law. I returned to my church with a strong mandate from the Lord and I began to preach grace radically.” - Joseph Prince, Destined To Reign, 2007, pg. vii-viii.

Just because he received a revelation or vision from the Lord doesn't mean it happened in an actual conversation. Don't you believe that God can give you a revelation that can speak many words to you in a moment? Of course this will happen to believers and especially for those who are in a position to preach the gospel to hundreds of millions of people. God wants the true gospel preached.

Pretty much any preacher on TBN is suspect.
