Default Joel Osteen resigns! Cites "Lack of faith"!

Joel Osteen is leaving the Christian faith.

No seriously, this isn't a joke.

His official youtube video:

"No God worth believing in is going to send you to Hell for not believing in him. Not even the worst sinner and scum of the Earth deserves eternal torment in Hell. In fact, God is more likely to congratulate you upon entering Heaven for doubting, questioning and not believing the religionists and their flimsy facts, demands of blind faith and lack of hard evidence."

6 users laughed. The question is: Are they laughing with you, or at you?:
This user agrees. But then, who wouldn't, right?

I think it is fake.

http://www.inquisitr.com/608507/joel...s-faith-video/

Quote:
So in case you were wondering why the website has only one “e,” it’s because it was the only website Osteen is able to control.
The website: http://www.joelostenministries.com/

His own name is mispelled (Osteen).
If you go to that page and click "About" it is the default wordpress (This is an example of a page. Unlike posts, ...).

The Youtube video looks like it references major news sources (CNN, etc...).
They are all faked. I can't find any of them.

This is a hoax.

Considering that this was dated April 2 (a day late and a dollar short?) and that there is a blog post dated April 5 at www.joelosteen.com, yeah, I think it's a hoax.

Joel Osteen took over the reins of Lakewood Church, which his father, John Osteen, had founded. The senior Osteen started the church in 1959 and Joel took over as senior pastor upon his father's death in 1999 despite the fact that he had preached only once before -- the week before his father's death.

Lakewood is the largest congregation in the United States, with about 44,000 in attendance each week in multiple services, held in a 16,800 seat auditorium.

I would like to announce I have infact walked away from my Christian faith in theory. I don't reject my beliefs but have given up on any type of Church completely. I have been attending a small UUU Church. I find it boring but a more tolerable people.
