Joel Osteen's 10 million dollar mansion
Joel Osteen’s 10 million dollar mansion

Yet another reason why religion is bad. Does Mr. Osteen know that what he’s doing is against everything Jesus stood for? I do remember reading about Jesus throwing men like him out of temples for their greed. How people still attend his mega churches and bask in the goodness of Jesus when the world is not yet at peace? I guess, all of the world’s problems have been solved.

    He practices the teaching, shares the words of Christ, teaches and transforms millions of lives. This is the secret formula to becoming a millionaire that all who are willing to commit and just do it can also have.
    Religion is bad when you become sheeple and can’t and won’t think for yourself. If you ask God to work through you, your gift will be shared with the world and money doesn’t become the obstacle instead it becomes the tool. Which is all money is a tool.

      If I recall, Jesus did not live in a million dollar mansion when he preached. Money is a tool, but it should be used not for personal wealth but helping those in need. A $5 hammer will drive a nail just as good as one that costs a million dollars if you can find one. Riches on earth won’t buy a mansion in heaven.

    in the old testament king Solomon had more money than anybody after offerings were brought to him regularly. no one would dare criticize king Solomon. If he makes his money off books he sells then so be it. Rest assured if he is benefiting in a way unbecoming of the Lords work , God will let him know. But don’t rush to judgment or think that everything you here applies to your walk with Jesus. Many of us live modest life styles compared to him. But even so we are wealthy compared to others in the world who are starving and hungry and how much do you or we give out of our abundance. Surely the Lord will reveal the truth in his time. But don’t forget as with Solomon it takes real wisdom to discern what the truth is. The media loves to assault Christians and tear them down for any reason. Satan rules this world and he would have it that we think we know everything pertaining to some ones circumstances and can judge them without really knowing them. Don’t forget discern for your selves and walk your own walk. Don’t let someone promise what you will or won’t have in life. This is still Satan’s World and it won’t be set straight till Jesus returns. But don’t be easily stirred to criticism till you know a little bit about something. God will show up when he’s ready and straighten out the truth. We all will cross the door of death. Then we will see in full the truth of it all.
