The Joel Osteen Attacks

Anyone who knows me knows that I am not a Joel Osteen fan. But we better be real careful in pointing our fingers and assuming to know his heart. Wake up and smell the hypocrisy in the air. There are a lot of little Joel Osteens ministering in our own areas. They may not have mega churches and the stardom that Osteen has, but their messages are to push their own agendas and their concern for the people of Texas will not interfere with their comfort zones. The meme that is going around right now stating: "God will not ask me what Joel Osteen did; He will ask me what I did" is the best one in a while. That is what we need to remember. We are not accountable for Osteen. We are accountable for ourselves and the only person we need to be analyzing is our self. I have learned in this last year, that instead of spending time trying to point out the faults of other religious leaders, I need to spend that time getting to know God. I need to focus on my relationship with Him and get off my know-it-all, holier-than-thou high horse. Our time is so much better spent doing and being what God has ordained for us personally. I am sure someone will let me know if this post is inappropriate. If so, I will take it down. My heart right now just screams we need to quit beating each other up and just do what is right. We must take a stand for right. I am all about that, but to spend our time finding ways to tear others apart, who are not threatening our freedoms and life, is pointless.

I agree. I'll try to do the right thing. What others do I don't want to judge.
