Maybe Joel Osteen Should Open Up That Bible of His… September 19, 2014

Maybe Joel Osteen Should Open Up That Bible of His…

Pastor Joel Osteen gets a lot of criticism for not using the Bible very much when he preaches — though that’s also part of his appeal. He might want to take a second look at it, though, since a recent Facebook post hinted that he doesn’t know his own biblical history:

God said in Numbers 11:23, “Moses, is there any limit to My power?” He was saying, “Moses, you saw Me part the Red Sea, stop the sun for Joshua, keep three Hebrew teenagers safe in a fiery furnace, don’t you realize that I can bring water without rain?” There’s no limit to God’s power.

The paraphrase is where he gets in trouble, because it turns out Moses, in fact, did not see him “stop the sun for Joshua” (Joshua 10:1-15) or keep the teenagers safe in a fiery furnace (Daniel 3:19-25).

Moses was dead when all of that supposedly happened.

Minor detail, I know.

Facebook commenters have done a good job of explaining all of that on his page, but Osteen probably can’t hear them over the sounds of his $10,500,000 mansion.

Somewhere, someone sitting in seminary school just shed a single tear.
