More Confusion And Deception

This is what Pastor Joel Osteen of Lakewood Church in Houston also said during his recent interview on CNN’s “The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer” about Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith:

“When I hear Mitt Romney say that he believes that Jesus is the Son of God — that he’s the Christ, raised from the dead, that he’s his Savior — that’s good enough for me,” the pastor proclaimed, going on to say that he wants to be “inclusive” and welcoming to those who claim they accept Christ.

While Pastor Osteen did differentiate between Mormonism and “traditional Christianity,” he maintains that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints adherents do, indeed, fall into the Christian realm. Despite some differences, Pastor Osteen claims that he sees Mormons as “brothers in Christ.”

My question to Pastor Joel Osteen is this: Just because Mitt Romney, who is a Mormon, says he believes in Jesus Christ, is that good enough for you, that you even see Mormons as your brothers in Christ? Doesn’t the Bible say in James chapter 2:19 that if “you say [...]

“I believe with all my heart that he’s a Christian, as he says he is,” Osteen maintained. “Again, I wouldn’t try to push people away. That‘s just the opposite of what we’re supposed to do…my personality is, I give people the benefit of the doubt.”

Yesterday, President Barack Obama said during an interview on ABC News Broadcast that he has concluded that it is important for him to affirm that he thinks same-sex couples should be able to get married.

Pastor Joel Hunter, an evangelical pastor who President Barack Obama calls his spiritual adviser, says he’s disappointed in the president’s decision to endorse same-sex marriage.

Hunter, who is the pastor of the 15,000 member Northland church in the Orlando, Florida area, told The Associated Press that Obama called him before the broadcast. Hunter said he told the president he disagreed with his interpretation of what the Bible [...]

Prophetic Sign

“And this is the sign from the Lord to prove that He will do as He promised” Isaiah 38:7 NLT

About a week ago, I was spending some time with a brother in one of the cities we are having our Bible school (Teaching Center) in Norway. After driving him to his house, he asked me if I would come in and have some tea with his family, but something inside me told me that it was time for me to go home. So I said goodbye to this brother and drove off. It was raining that day and as I was driving uphill on this winding road, I saw a big cloud of smoke coming from the left side of the road. I felt God telling me to stop and go take a look at what was going on. I ran to the scene and looked down over the railing and saw that a car went over the embankment down into a bunch of big trees. The car was completely destroyed.

I quickly made my way down, and found a [...]
