I was perusing Twitter and found this little lump of sugar from Joel Osteen:
Now, that’s deep.
He has the largest church in America; he pulls in an audience of 35,000 corporately and millions across the earth, and this is all he has?!?! What exactly does that mean, anyway? I’m not an accident? Who said I was? I didn’t wake up this morning and say, “Daggone it, I can’t go to work today. I’m an accident.” What I did say was, “Oh, no! I can’t believe I slept through the alarm… I’m gonna be late!!!” But, I digress…
Just think about this, gang – Osteen has the largest church in the country… that’s right… his syrupy-sweet message attracts that many people. Think that’s an accident? Think again. This is hard evidence of the lateness of the day and hour. What Osteen’s message does is make sinners die happy sinners. Give me a message that cuts me to my heart and brings me to my knees!
I’ll take that any day!
As I browsed his Twitter feed, I found an interesting exchange between Osteen and a gentleman named Peter. Well, I don’t know if you could actually call it an exchange – Osteen tweeted, Peter responded, and Osteen did not respond back, which leads me to believe someone may do his tweeting for him. But, as I was saying, it wasn’t much of a conversation, but I found it amusing. Check it out:
Given the message Osteen preaches, Peter is perfectly reasonable to ask for $100,000 in small bills. Osteen says it works… I’m wondering if Peter received that “increase” yet.
Nah, most likely not. I’m thinking Peter didn’t expect it either.
