Greetings True Christians!
In the news today, we find out that Joel Olsteen had nearly six hundred thousand dollars stolen from a safe at his megachurch. While the atheists will likely mock him for this fact and have much fun with it, the truth is, Christians should view it as a lesson to be learned. Joel Olsteen is one of the world’s most successful televangelists. Olsteen’s big tent has become big money. Olsteen was once a True Christian, and in fact, still teaches some good Christian concepts.
However, Olsteen has made money his false idol. Jesus tells us that the poor in this world will be rich in His Kingdom, and that the first shall be last. Rather than building up spiritual treasures in heaven, Joel Olsteen has focused on building up monetary treasure in this world. The money that Joel Olsteen makes should have been used to feed the poor and clothe the naked. Instead, there it was, sitting in a safe in Joel Olsteen’s fancy megachurch while Joel was likely lounging in his mansion.
Remember what the Holy Bible tells us about the wealthy. Jesus Himself tells us that it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than it is for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven. God inspired this theft to happen as a way to weaken Olsteen’s pride and force him to repent. While we do not condone criminal acts, we do realize that God may have been acting through these thieves. Olsteen needs to give up his wealth and lead a True Christian life if he ever hopes to enter heaven. Having 600,000 dollars just floating around in a safe doesn’t seem very Christian to me…
Repent Joel Olsteen, before God takes away more than that from you. Repent!
We are praying for you.
Your True Christian Friends,
Jim Solouki and Martin Baker.
