Did you see Joel Osteen’s interview on 60 minutes this past Sunday? It wasn’t that useful. News shows work in soundbites that lack content. Also, Mr. Osteen has never seemed to understand (or doesn’t want to understand) the problem with his message well enough to engage it, nor do TV interviewers. Osteen’s moneymaking prowess indicates that few are offended by moralism.
Pastor Riddlebarger sums it up succinctly: Osteen is an evangelist without an evangel.
