Please Stop The Hatin’ on God’s People

If you do a search on YouTube for any well know minister like Joel Osteen or T.D. Jakes you will see a ton a videos of them preaching or interviews they have done on TV. You will also see a number of videos that attempt to pick apart, attack and tear down their ministries.

The creators of these videos claim that they are trying to expose these ministers as “false prophets”. They are trying to save us from getting caught up in many well know ministries. The teachings, doctrines, and motives of many well-known ministers are constantly being called in to question.

You can call me crazy, but from my perspective, ministers like Joel Osteen, T.D. Jakes, Creflo Dollar, Joyce Meyer, Paula White, and Jamal Bryant all share the same goal of leading people to Christ. You may not agree with their theology or their methods of delivering the Gospel. Does that really matter? Differences in theology are one of the main reasons why there are so many denominations today.

Yes, many of them make a lot of money in the process. So, are we supposed to hate on them for that? If you don’t like their ministry, don’t watch them on TV and don’t support them financially. It is that simple.

As believers, we should spend more time focusing on taking down the enemy instead of “exposing” each other. If any of us wants to make significant progress for the kingdom of God, there are much bigger fish to fry than Joel Osteen.

If you want to make a video, make a video that speaks against the dangers of idolatry, porn addiction or alcoholism. Leave God’s people alone. If you think something shady is going on in their ministries, pray for them and go on about your business.

Please take my advice, use your time and effort confronting things that are clearly against the will of God.

What are your thoughts about this? When we speak against ministers of the Gospel are we dividing our house?

    I hope you dont mind me posting on your blog.

    I have seen some of the video’s you have mentioned, and a few of them do cross the line as far as I am concerned. However, there are a few videos that question a pastors sermons and beliefs and rightly compare them to the word of God (the Bible). They seem to do a good job in separating the truth of God to the flawed teachings of a preacher.

    It’s true (and I dont think your crazy) that the preachers you mentioned may all be seeking to bring Christ into the lives of others. But if some of their teachings are misleding people to have a false image of who God trully is then it should be brought to light.

    1 JOHN 4:1 tells us to test the spirits because there are MANY FALSE PROPHETS that have gone out into the world. Also the book of JUDE is all about dealing with those who do not know the truth of God’s word but are teaching others THEIR version of the gospel.

    In ACTS 17:11 the Berea’s listen to the Apostle Paul preach AND THEN compared it to scriptrues to find out if what he preached was true(And Paul was one of the Apostles).

    And you also dont have to look deep into the Bible to find people questioning who Jesus was and what he represented.

    We all have heard preachers and men of God alike preach some wild things, and they should be tested with the word. All of the minsters you mention have even spoken out against other beliefs (Except for Joel Osteen who, for what ever reason never speaks out about anyone or belief)

    I am sure if a peacher was to say that God wants us all to leave our wives and/or husband and marry someone else, several people would stand up and compare scripture to dispute it, as we should.

    Again there are some great videos that aren’t hating on the peacher but questioning their teaching.

    sorry for the long post, just wanted to get my point across.
