The other day someone compared me to Joel Osteen, favorably. They figured if I was like Joel I must be good. I thought, "Uh, who is this guy?" He's on TV, and I checked the web and he is pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston, and he's 39. That's all I know.
I tried to watch him once, but I have this aversion to TV preachers, I couldn't stay with it for more than 2 minutes. I pretty much figure that if you are on TV then you are a Word-faith teacher.
What do y'all know about Joel Osteen? Is he a Word-Faith guy? What's up with his church buying the Compaq center in Houston?
