In continuing with my laziness of posting videos instead of actually taking the time to write something, here are two clips of two very different styles of preaching.
In one clip you will see a preacher preach the word of God, telling us that we are nothing, that we deserve nothing, that we deserve hell, and that we are literally destitute (this is exactly what the Bible teaches); that of course is not the end… well just watch the video. This is real powerful clip from Paul Washer.
The second clip is one that will preach to the “self,” that will tell us what we have favor and are free from poverty. This of course is a clip from Joel Osteen. Yes, I have put Joel Osteen clips on two blogs in a row. I can’t believe it either. Not only is he preaching a false gospel, he is leading people straight to hell.
How dare you Joel Osteen? How dare you make God into our servant who works for us? God is Almighty God and we were created to worship Him and to bring Glory to Him.
Again, as you watch these, don’t be impressed by who these people are…they are just men. Watch for the true presentation of the gospel and the truth of God’s word.
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” – Romans 1:16 (ESV)
