Joel Osteen is a false teacher. He preaches the heretical prosperity “gospel” and tells people to live their best lives now. This fact alone should ring alarm bells throughout the psyches of Bible-believing Christians, but it’s actually much worse that that.
Allen Parr teaches mostly sound doctrine from what I’ve seen so far on his YouTube channel. There are differences in understanding and interpretations, but the general message he delivers is proper and even in areas of disagreement, I can appreciate where he’s come from on the matter.
Parr took the time to make a video calling out six examples of how Osteen is a false teacher. Among them is one that should really boil the blood of any Bible-believing Christian. He believes there may be other ways to salvation other than belief in Jesus Christ. This type of new age teaching has become more prevalent in and out of churches across America. It’s completely false.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. – John 14:6 (KJV)
There’s nothing ambiguous about that. Jesus said and his apostles reiterated that there is only path to salvation: Believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. How that belief manifests can be debated, but what cannot be debated is the notion that people who denounce Christ by not declaring Him as Lord and Savior are not saved. That’s it.
If you’re one who listens to Joel Osteen’s teachings or has considered him to be a proper leader in the Christian church, please watch this video by Allen Parr. It’s not fun to learn of false teachers, but it’s important that we do.
