Who hasn’t heckled Joel Osteen? Instead of being arrested these people should have been applauded and everyone in Osteen’s audience (I refuse to use the word congregation because that would imply Osteen pastored an actual Church) should have joined in the heckling and then walked out.
“The moment he started to preach, somebody gets up and they yell “Joel Osteen you’re a liar,” said Anwar Richardson. Richardson shot video of a security taking one of the hecklers out. you can hear the congregation clapping as pastor Joel Osteen attempts to move along with his sermon. but the disruptions continued. “After the sixth time that it occurred, my son was sleeping in my lap, and I looked at my wife and she was nervous and we just decided we have to get out of here,” said Richardson.
Good decision. Better decision- not to attend Heretic Osteen’s Audience.

It’s as though they sat down and thought “hmmm…. what can we call our gathering that will both misuse the notion of Reformation and bastardize the historical movement which occurred in the 16th century which sought to purify and improve the Church… Oh, I know, let’s call it the ‘Reformation Project’ because…”
Good God in heaven. I have many many words floating around in my head and not a single one of them are really suitable for a G rated blog. The perverseness of this perversion is simply repulsive. It’s time to enter into a season of imprecations. Let’s go:
Give ear to my words, Yahweh, spare a thought for my sighing. Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God! To you I pray, … You are not a God who takes pleasure in evil, no sinner can be your guest. You hate evil-doers, liars you destroy; … Not a word from their lips can be trusted, through and through they are destruction, their throats are wide — open graves, their tongues seductive. Lay the guilt on them, … since they have rebelled against you. (Ps. 5)
God, do not remain silent, do not stay quiet or unmoved, God! See how your enemies are in uproar, how those who hate you are rearing their heads. They are laying plans against your people, conspiring against those you cherish; they say, ‘Come, let us annihilate them as a nation, the name of Israel shall be remembered no more!’ They conspire with a single mind, they conclude an alliance against you, the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagrites, Gebal, Ammon, Amalek, Philistia and the Tyrians; even Assyria has joined them to reinforce the children of Lot. Treat them like Midian and Sisera, like Jabin at the river Kishon; wiped out at En-Dor, they served to manure the ground. Treat their leaders like Oreb and Zeeb, all their commanders like Zebah and Zalmunna, for they said, ‘Let us take for ourselves God’s settlements.’ My God, treat them like thistledown, like chaff at the mercy of the wind. As fire devours a forest, as a flame sets mountains ablaze, so drive them away with your tempest, by your whirlwind fill them with terror. Shame written all over their faces, let them seek your name, Yahweh! Dishonour and terror be always theirs, death also and destruction. Let them know that you alone bear the name of Yahweh, Most High over all the earth. (Ps. 83)
Too much? Hardly. This movement is as heretical a sect as the Church has encountered since Arius rose as a Bishop for the schismatics. While they adopt Christian sounding themes, their goals are nothing less than to rid the world of Christianity itself and replace it with a secular humanism the likes of which would please Marcion. False Christians promoting false Christianity to a world more than gleefully happy to see the truths of the Faith twisted into unrecognizable form and all for the sake of their own sense of self importance.
I’ll turn it over to Luther. He knows how to vent-
You cowardly slave, you corrupt sycophant, with your sickening advice!
You run against God with the horns of your pride up in the air and thus plunge into the abyss of hell. Woe unto you, Antichrist!
What devilish unchristian thing would you not undertake?
I think that all the devils have at once entered into you.
You say, “What comes out of our mouth must be kept!” I hear it – which mouth do you mean? The one from which the farts come? (You can keep that yourself!)
Pentebabbleist Mega Church Hillsong Doesn’t Want Self Aggrandizing Heretic Mark Driscoll on its Program…
The head of Pentecostal mega-church Hillsong has dropped US preacher Mark Driscoll from the lineup of the church’s 2015 Australian and UK conferences, saying furore around his controversial sermons – including some describing women as “penis houses” – would be an “unnecessary distraction”.
Brian Houston said on Sunday after “personal interaction” with Driscoll he had decided to rescind his invitation to the events, the Australian version of which is expected to draw 30,000 this month.
This strikes me as odd. Why would pentebabbleist heretics not embrace a self aggrandizing heretic? A gathering of heretics unwilling to embrace a fellow heretic? Just odd.
Driscoll resigned from Seattle’s Mars Hill church in October after its board found him “guilty of arrogance, responding to conflict with a quick temper and harsh speech, and leading the staff and elders in a domineering manner”.
But uproar in recent days has focused on the content of his so-called “testosterone gospel”, including one sermon in which he told churchgoers: “Ultimately, God created you and it is His penis. You are simply borrowing it for a while.
“Knowing that His penis would need a home, God created a woman to be your wife. And when you marry her and look down you will notice that your wife is shaped differently than you and makes a very nice home,” he said.
That’s vintage Driscoll- Mr ‘Anything For Attention’ Driscoll has been saying things that disgusting for a long time. Hillsong knew all that when they invited him in the first place. So their ‘parting of the ways’ is just bizarre.
A weird ‘church’ asking a weird ‘preacher’ to be involved in its conference isn’t odd. What is odd is that they’ve changed their mind.
It’s their money and they can spend it on a $65 million jet if they want to, the board of directors for Creflo Dollar’s ministry said.
“We plan to acquire a Gulfstream G650 because it is the best, and it is a reflection of the level of excellence at which this organization chooses to operate,” leaders of World Changers Church International said.
And they’re right. If people are foolish enough to give this self-aggrandizing heretic their hard earned money so he can live like a Saudi Prince, he can spend it however he wants.
And, given the depravity of Dollar and his flock, he’ll continue to rake in the cash. Because. Invincible ignorance amongst the sheared sheep.
