In the video, Joel Osteen does an excellent job not standing up for anything.
Admittedly, at one point in this interview I was almost proud of Joel for making what seemed to be a solid stance on the word GOD.
Initially Osteen stated that he believes homosexuality is a sin — but he quickly backpedaled away from this when confronted by the passively aggressive fellow in front of him.
When the moderator asked Osteen about an Interview he did where he implied that Homosexuals are “Sinners”, Osteen replied…
“I don’t necessarily focus on that (in service)
— I only talk about that in the interviews”
As the conversation progressed, Osteen was asked his stance on “Equal Rights” for homosexuals and whether the youth should be taught to accept homosexuality.
“I think I have an important voice, but I think part of my success is that I’ve stayed in my lane — And my lane is lifting people’s spirits”
The interview proceeded, and things continued to get worse for Osteen.
As the others continued to rip into Osteen about his “Non-Stance” stance –his own belief system seemed to have been reduced down to nothing more than a few inspirational quotes along with a “Children are our future” world-view.
Honestly, I can imagine that a train wreck would have ended more gracefully than this interview for Osteen and for all Christians watching.
Although I cannot speak for everyone, as a Christian — I for one was embarrassed when Osteen essentially conceded that Homosexuality or Heterosexuality is NOT a choice.
Every day we can observe where a person changes their sexual preference not just once but SEVERAL times throughout their life-time. Therefore how can it not be a choice when it constantly changes?
As if that was not enough, The sentence alone is in direct contradiction to the fundamental belief-system of Christians everywhere!
“In the Beginning GOD created Adam and EVE.
He did NOT create Adam and STEVE.”
Just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse, Osteen finalized this video clip by implying that he virtually has NO IDEA whether homosexuality is wrong — when he stated…
“And I don’t understand all those issues and so,
I try to stick on the issues I do understand.”
QUESTION: What happens when 1 blind man leads 45,000 blind men?
Let this be an excellent example to Christians everywhere — either you believe the Bible or you don’t. If you try to play both ends of the field, you will end up looking ridiculous.
