    Are you saying Joel Osteen is a phony?

      Nah. 😉 But Paula White sure is. I don’t think Joel has had cosmetic surgery..yet.

    I think people follow Joel because he gives a positive message–but I believe his lifestyle is relatively humble considering his success.

    Anyway, at least he is selling books and not healings (or indulgences).

    Never heard of Paula White.

    Ah, you should Google her. Very interesting stuff. She’s the one who gave TD Jakes a Bentley for his birthday. A Bentley! Jeesh.

    Anyway, Joel may be a wonderful guy, and humble in spite of his millions but neither one of them is preaching Jesus’ gospel. Or living it. They both go to great lengths to present a persona that is beautiful (including cosmetic surgery in Paula’s case), stylish, powerful, expensive and so….cheerful. Like TBN it’s all showbiz.

    And it’s not like they made their millions by inventing the light bulb or corn flakes.

    A Bentley for His Bishop-Sake?

    Hmm. Well, TD always said he wouldn’t live out of the collection plate.

    Here is a link to an AOL article on Megachurch life
    (including Osteen).
