Joel Osteen: Mitt Romney Is a “Believer in Christ Like Me”

Lakewood Megachurch Pastor Says Presidential Hopeful’s ‘Confession’ of Christ Is ‘Enough”.

Joel Osteen has no objections to all who claim "Christ" being son of God.

Joel Osteen, pastor of America’s fastest growing megachurch, has reiterated his opinion that GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is a “believer in Christ like me” and that the former Massachusetts governor’s confession of Jesus as the Son of God is “enough” for him.

Link to the CBS video:

Osteen, senior pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, told CBS’ Charlie Rose Monday morning:

 “What I see about Gov. Romney is that he says ‘I believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He’s raised from the dead and he’s my savior.’ I see him as being a believer in Christ like me.”

And “that’s enough for you?” Rose questioned.

 “That’s enough for me,” Osteen stated. “There’s differences in all religion. I realize that Mormonism is different from Christianity, but you know what he’s a man of faith and values. And to me that’s strong.”

My comment:

I have earlier warned Christians that Joel Osteen is not a follower of Jesus of the Bible.  This statement of Osteen is just another example of the deception he represent.

 2 Corinthians 11:4
For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.

1. The “Jesus” of the  prosperity gospel is inspired by the devil and his demons.
2. People who stay put in World of faith congregation are either corrupt, or understands nothing.
3. Teachers like Joel Osteen will support the One World religion. His only demand he has is that people must confess some kind of faith in “Christ”.

  1. Ivar,
    With each passing day it becomes easier to see how there could be a great “falling away” of believers in the last days. Perhaps, someone should remind the “church” that Yeshua is returning for a spotless bride, not a whore!

  2. you are so right…These tv Pastor need to read the word….
    and people better start reading the word or they will fall prey to demons and their word

  3. ANY person who thinks Joel Osteen is even saved needs to get saved. What is it going to take!? How many times does this moral coward have to deny Christ publicly for people to see this scam for what it is? Actually, God has a place for false prophets like Osteen. He uses dupes like this to set a hook in the jaws of all who do not truly love Him and therefore are not willing to lay down their lives to serve Him. … “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. 3For the time will come when they will not endure (hold themselves accountable to) sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
    4And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” (2 Timothy 4:2-4) safeguardyoursoul . com

  4. Mitt Romney is a Mormon, therefore he believes in many Christs. Which one is Osteen referring to? Certainly not the Jesus Christ of the Bible.

    • Sorry, you are greatly misinformed about The Church of Jesus Christ, Mormons. We believe in one Christ, from the Bible. It is just that we have a second witness of the divinity of Jesus in the Book of Mormon.

  5. Someone should ask Osteen if he also believes (like the Mormons) that Satan is Jesus’ brother and that we will one day ascend to godhood? I find it incredible that Osteen knows so little about Biblical faith (or Mormonism, for that matter) that he is willing to compare the two. The Great Apostasy is no doubt here and is spreading rapidly. The “big name” pastors have obviously been seduced by the lure of wealth to “deny the Lord who bought them”. They have their multi-million dollar mansions and their private jets, but do they have Jesus—the real Jesus of the Bible?

    • Ellen, of course We are all brothers and sisters, the children of God. Satan fell from the presence of God because he did not believe in free agency. He along with One third of the hosts of Heaven fell, our brothers and sisters, because they defied Gods will.

  6. this is the great apostasy, Who is on Yahweh side stand up, for Yeshua- Jesus. 2 cor 4: 3-4 But if our gospel be hid it is hid to them that are lost. come on men and women OF God, do not be dupe in to False Teaching. Love IN YHWH

  7. I can remember even ten years ago, we used to be able to talk to neighbors or friends etc and they would listen etc. but now they won’t at all. that the broad way which is getting broader is happening all over the world. and G-d tells us that narrow is the way that leads to everlasting life but NOT Many will even find it. I think one of the big things today is not many even read the bible, just take the pulpits decide for them. the bible says preachers would get worst punishment, but that the ones like Osteen would not enter in the gates of heaven and that would be also where G-d says that those who comment adultry and all sexs sins would not enter in.. I think to myself, how in the world can they take HIS Word lightly, He is the WORD.. I can still remember John Paul 2 on TV and he said: after going to the statue of Mary that he would thank her for healing..and then when he got back said, I have to go to purgatory for some sins an then I will go to heaven and stand at the right hand side of the Father , pray to me..I all but fell off the couch. then once he said to the muslim Iman, why do we fight, we serve the same god as you. and in the catecism spelt wrong..it says allah is the same god. what blasphemy not to mention that Yeshua said to his diciples that HE had to go after the cross so HE could send the Holy Spirit to lead us into all truth. and the bible says, IF we ask the Holy Spirt the word would not come back void and would lead us into all truth that HE IS THE TRUTH. and to call NO ONE FATHER but ME. yet the pope thinks he took the aurthority of Christ and says he is the one on earth. what blasphemy.. but T-d cannot look upon sin. people I hope will repent and turn to HIS TRUTH because HE says HE is the ONLY ONE , the truth and the life PERIOD. I saw osteen on tv once. when Hannity and clomes was on together , Colmes I think his name was asked osteen if he did not except Jesus he was going to hell. and Osteen said, hey, I am not G-d to say who is going to hell or not..,,I thot, why did he not give the scripture that says that is truth that anyone who doesn’t except the real Jesus is going to hell, G-d said it. it is the truth. how sad that the apostasy is so world wide as G-d said it would be..till He decided it would be over…and it is the Jews that are getting saved, reborn now as I think it is about time the L-rd said when the times of the gentile would be over and HES eyes would go back to the chosen people. Micah 7:19 says HE would AGAIN have compassion on Jews..and HE will as HE says whether anyone wants to believe it or not. that is why in HIS stated plan HE is bringing them home. not to kill them but to bring Redemption as HE set them asside for us heathen so we would have the power to become sons of G-d, we owe them a debt and are to suport them Romans nine tem an eleven. no one repleaced Israel as we were grafted into Israel not the church , HE said Israel which is the root. and HE tells us when HE stands on the Mt of Olive, brings up the dead even and they see who they periced they wold mourn like for a first son and every knee would bow and confess HE IS G-d and He said, I will give them a heart of flesh, pour pure water on the and take away all their sin and ALL Israel would be saved. we all need to read All the bible, not take scriptue out of context as leaves us with pretext which is a lie..we are to tell the world three times and if they reject the real Jesus , from such turn away..keep praying and stay in the word. it will change your life and eternity forever. hell is forever..except HIM and spend eternity with HIM
