When Kanye visited Joel Osteen’s church last weekend on the tenth, it drew all attention on to Kayne’s own salvation. Some said that associating with known and obvious false teachers was a sign that Kanye was not really saved. Otherw saw this as an opportunity to preach the gospel to an unreached audience. But Kanye is a baby Christian. He has shown thus far he does not yet possess discernment capabilities with his comments on Mormons and TD Jakes sharing the same gospel as mere Christianity.
So, for him to accept an invitation to Lakewood Church is disappointing but unsurprising, but Kanye does seem to otherwise comprehend and articulate a Christian worldview. This isn’t about Kayne. This is about the danger of a wolf in sheep’s clothing preying on new lambs.
Joel Osteen’s message is a humanist Prosperity Gospel, antithetical to the Christian life. Yet his Twitter is perhaps the most followed “Christian” account on the publisher. Are all of Osteen’s 9.2 million followers on Twitter unsaved? No. Not everyone recognizes the danger he poses, the difference between right and almost right being uninvestigated. But we need not dig deep to into Osteen to find the Gospel is lacking. He does not preach on sin and repentance; therefore, he most obviously does not preach the gospel. Noted as being the smiling preacher, Osteen preaches self-love and having life abundantly. Of course, the abundant life Jesus is talking about is the eternal life. But you would not understand the bible in context listening to Joel Osteen.
Baby Christians, in particular, are vulnerable due to a lack of developed scriptural knowledge. We can have faith that the Holy Spirit will rescue the misled faithful. Part of this entails those gifted with discernment substantively calling out false teachers. And so, we can trust in the Holy Spirit to guide Kanye’s growth.
The need for self-love appeals to those with shallow spirituality, but the Bible largely assumes that mankind has no problem loving themselves because our rebellion against God is that we want to be our own gods. Thus, a preacher that promotes self-love is furthering mankind’s rebellion instead of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Among other things, the Prosperity Gospel brings a false sense of love, peace, faith, and a distorted view of the promises of God. The good news of Jesus Christ brings love, joy, peace, purpose, and clarity. In seeking these things in following Christ, baby Christians may fall for counterfeits. The best way to identify counterfeits is to study what’s real.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
