John MacArthur Exposes Joel Osteen VIdeo

If you want to hear the problem with this kind of church listen to this video by John MacArthur. The largest kind of churches are led by a False Preacher who is leading people to Hell.

The fleshly part of us like to hear nice preaching that makes us feel good, but there is no truth in Christ in the Sermon.

False religion is the most heinous of all sins because it’s a violation of the great commandment, “Love the Lord your God, the true one, with all your heart, soul, mind and strength,” and false religion that borrows His name but creates a false God and borrows the name of Christ but creates a false Christ is the worst kind of blasphemy. (Click here for full sermon.)

"And by the way, I’ve said these things in a letter to the people at TBN because I know that they would hear this and I put it in a letter. They weren’t too happy about it. But I need to say that. Do you understand that this is a burden for me?

And I think preachers like this who preach this stuff, hate the true God. I really believe that. I believe they hate the true God and they’re afraid to death that somebody might find out who He is

  • That He’s a God of absolute sovereignty,
  • that He’s a God of absolute knowledge.
  • He is a God of perfect wisdom.
  • He is a God of perfect holiness,
  • He is in perfect control of everything, absolutely sovereign over everything.
That kind of God terrifies these kinds of people. And He is a God who is concerned about fulfilling things in a spiritual level whether you ever receive anything on a temporal level. I think they have hatred for the true God.

They hide the true God from the eyes of their followers and they put in His place an idol of their own making with the same God.
