Joel Osteen presents himself as a famous pastor trying to uplift others and offer encouragement contrary to the traditional ways of preaching that condemn everything people do in the world… This wouldn’t be a horrible way to try and inspire people, if it weren’t for the way he plays on people’s faith and demands money in return for his useless sermons.
Osteen has offered to pray for others, but there is a price of $20 to $50 for each prayer. He claims that the money will be spent on the church, and that by spending your money there you are pleasing God almight… But the money goes straight into Osteen’s pocket. Becaue he is manipulative and uses people’s faith against them, and to rob them of their own hard earned money. To give you an idea of how much money this rat has stolen from people, here’s a picture of his insanely large house:
Ben Palmer, a comedian, recently went on Osteen’s Facebook page to talk about the amorality of this man’s faith based business. Many of Osteen’s devout followers rushed to defend this money grubbing monster, while others were left wondering how legitimate Osteen’s faith-based-robbery-scam actually is…
The worst part about all of this, of course, is that Osteen isn’t the only preacher doing this. All over America Christian television preachers are taking untaxed “donations” from their devotees and using them for whatever-the-hell they want to. It is absurd, and hard to believe that it’s legal – but it totally is, and crooks like Osteen have been getting away with it for years.
