We met a bunch of folks from all around Colorado to witness at the Joel Osteen concert the other night. It was great to see everyone again and to serve the Lord with them. Steve Bauer organized the thing and made up million dollar bill Gospel tracts. See below.
The local TV station mentioned that there were “around 3 dozen protestors” there, and their remark was probably pretty accurate. We were protesting the false gospel preached by this false prophet. It was so sad to see all of these deceived people paying money to hear the worldly things that they wanted to hear. Joel Osteen says that he starts his day reading 5 different newspapers to get material for his events…so the worldy teachings of Joel Osteen are exactly how the Bible describes the unsaved condition of this false prophet and the people that attend things like this….”they are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them” (1 John 4:5 ESV).
These people that are attending Joel’s “church” and attending his concerts are not victims. They willingly go to hear this stuff because they love the world and the things of the world. James speaks of these unsaved folks in his epistle, “You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hatred towards God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world is God’s enemy”(James 4:4). The Apostle Paul also describes what is going on in his epistle to Timothy. “For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths” (2 Tim. 4:3-4).
So we preached the truth and handed out these Gospel tracts. We also handed out “The Biggest Question” DVD and some 180 Movies. It was a great night of fellowship and a great time of glorifying God in proclaiming the truth of the Gospel, so these people may be saved. Thanks for prayers!
