I am a very socially liberal Christian, but I really like Joel Osteen. I don't watch him religiously (LOL), but any time that I have seen him on TV, he's always had such an uplifting and inspirational message.

He's coming to my town on the 2nd and I just purchased a ticket- got a great seat- almost front row center.

Has anyone else seen him in person? How is he in RL?

Are there other socially liberal Christians who like him?

Here is something to consider when listening to or buying a ticket to see any modern day "preacher" or "pastor".

Research the lavish lifestyles of these "godly" people on TBN or other networks. All are 501 (c) (3) "churches" which means they sought "permission" from the federal government to operate their "non-profit" "business". Sounds like these people have given themselves as slaves to the State. We cannot serve two masters. Matt. 6:24. Any government creation, like these "churches", are subject to the federal government and all its rules and regulations. Do you think the federal government is in line with the Divine Word of our Father in Heaven? How can we be loyal to both? We cannot, the scriptures tell us so.

Are these the people we want to follow?
Are these the beliefs we want to hold as true?
Should we ask any government's permission to spread God's word?
Should we listen to those that "preach the word" for profit?

Research and study the roots of what you claim to be true. If the truth is your honest and genuine desire, then your prayer will be answered.

Hif, I LOVE Joel Osteen! He is my most favorite pastor, EVER! Did you know you can go to his online site and watch free podcasts? I hope you have a great time!
