Today I want to give a prime example of someone not preaching the full gospel. Joel Osteen is in fact a false teacher. He preaches to the masses about health, wealth, and prosperity. You will never hear Joel Osteen preach about the dangers of sin. You will never hear him preach about God's terrifying wrath. All you hear is niceties and Joel saying how much God loves you and what God wants to do for you. This is a prime example of the false prophets in the old testament. They tell the people what they want to hear instead of telling them the truth.
All men of God warn both the church and the unbelievers about the consequences of sin, the wrath of God, and they place Jesus above everything. All that they say leads back to Jesus and how you can run to Him. Sinners must understand that they are not OK with God. That His wrath abides on all who continue in sin unwilling to repent and place their trust in Jesus Christ.
Dear readers be careful who you listen to. Do not believe everything you hear coming from the pulpit. Be diligent in your search of scripture. Make sure you have the right Jesus. The Jesus that saves His people FROM their sin. Jesus does not leave His people IN SIN.
A key to look at in discerning false prophets from true ones. Almost ALL false prophets ask for money and are covetous. If not all of them. Some do it and hide it from people. They also will not lead you out of sin but affirm you are OK in it.
May God Bless and Keep you,
Your Brother In Christ,
