Joel Osteen can not understand why “denominational names” shall separate Baptists and Catholics.
This is recorded in Christian Post:
When I grew up, at least in my household, there was the Baptists, the Methodists, Catholics and others. And we never crossed over. But this is a day where it seems like the denominational names mean less and less, and I mean that very respectfully, but they’re not separating us.
My church now is filled with people of every denomination. Victoria grew up in the Church of Christ, so I think in that sense it’s changed for the better – there’s not so many things separating us. Here at Marlins Park, I’m sure there will be every denomination. I had somebody at my church Sunday who came by afterwards to say, “that was a great sermon,” and coming from an Atheist that means a lot. Continue»

I do not know why I keep taking this preacher seriously. Not being able to see why Baptists and Catholics are separated, Joel Osteen remains spiritually blindfolded.
It is a mystery how Osteen can have missed that there is a Baptism with full emersion in water, after people are confessing faith in Jesus. And there are Catholics who sprinkle water of infants, and declare them saved.
It is also a mystery that Osteen do not know that Roman Catholics believe in an infallible Pope, pray to saints and the “Queen of Heaven:”, and worship bones, skulls and corpses. True Baptists do non of this. For obvious reasons.
2 Corinthians 6:13-15
Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common?
Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?
What harmony is there between Christ and Belial. Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?
Since these kind of issues does not matter for Joel Osteen, I guess no doctrinal differences will affect this man, as long as the cash comes in. Many moneymakers proclaim that “God is good all the time”.
1 Timothy 4:16
Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
Please do not listen to this lawless man.
