Why do so many Christians, including Baptists, watch and read Joel Osteen? I know of several people in my Sunday School class, and in my church, who are strong Christians who watch and read Osteen. I want to ask them "why", but I never do. Why would so many Christians read and watch a man like Osteen? A man who does not preach the Word but rather preaches, by his own admission, what makes people feel good. Why would any Christian watch him? I just don't get it. Maybe someone here can help me understand.
