Denise:

abondservant, I guess I'd be reluctant to use a lower-case 'g' on a theology that to a large degree is the OT, with Peter's quote of Joel at Pentecost.  

Now you probably think I'm defending Mr Osteen. Not.

My only point is that Logosians seem far more comfortable with resources that question God (upper-case 'g'), the writings, etc,  than they are with an individual down in Houston with a comparatively small church (compared to Houston, compared to any of the denominations).  My guess is the emotionalism of doctinal 'apostasy'.  Ditto with Bart.

And regarding sheeps clothing, I'd view the Logos platform direction with far more concern than Mr Osteen.  (Recognizing I agree with the Logos' direction;  I'm just surprised the evangelicals are so comfortable).

Plus we have to keep William happy with his popcorn.

Getting ready to pop some myself.

I am going to reserve my comments for a thread on christian discourse should someone start one :)

He is the pastor of the largest congregation in the U.S. -- 43,000 members. Plus millions who watch him on TV.

The word "evangelical" encompasses a broad spectrum. While plenty are fine with the broadening of Logos's catalog, some aren't and have griped about it, and probably many who aren't keep their mouths shut or have abandoned Logos because of it.

The Houston-wonder-boy probably has a closer reading, than the well educated seminarians.

I seriously doubt this.

http://www.freerepublic.com/

"According to Joel Osteen – Pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, these first century apostles are wrong and outdated and he has come out boldly to infer indirectly that Apostles Paul, Peter, and John whom wrote much of the New Testament were wrong and need to be corrected and rebuked."

Guessing this thread will likely have a "Bram Stokers Dracula" level backlash. 

How did you ever know?
