Al Mouler breaks-down the recent interview of Piers Morgan with Joel Osteen aptly entitled, “Dragged Kicking and Screaming into the Modern Age? Lessons from Piers Morgan’s Interview with Joel Osteen.” As I watched the video, I couldn’t help but feel terribly sad for those who look to Joel and his wife, Victoria, for spiritual nourishment and guidance.
The challenge of living God-centered in a world so hostile to truth, the challenge in applying thoughtful and rigorously sturdy answers to people in need is a high calling that should be demonstrated by a pastor providing confident answers that drip with Biblical clarity. Unfortunately, Joel Osteen should be in a church learning truth rather than being a teacher dispensing truth. Both Joel and Victoria are just so over their heads and it seems like Piers Morgan knows it.
