Steve Camp on Osteens new book

I have ever shared with you all how much I love Steve Camp. What a blessing Steve is to me. In the piece he brings tremendous clarity to the false teaching of Joel Osteen.

Here are a few things that brother Joel Osteen unwittingly left out of his most recent book, “Become A Better You”, that I humbly suggest should have been included.

Seven Truths to Living Faithfully:
1. Apply the gospel to yourself daily by denying yourself, taking up your cross, and following Him; counting the loss of things rubbish in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus the Lord (Matt. 16:24-26; Phil. 3:7-11).

2. Have a continual life of confession of and repentance from sin (Psalm 66:18; Psalm 32:1-5; Psalm 51; 1 John 2:28-3:9).

3. Read and study your Bible every day (Psalm 119; John 17:17; Jude 3; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; Psalm 19:7-11; Eph. 4:11-16).

4. Developing an effective, fervent daily prayer life in the Holy Spirit (Eph. 6:18-21; James 5:16f; Luke 18:1; Col. 1:9-14).

5. Proclaim the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and make disciples of all the nations (1 Peter 3:15f; Roms. 1:16f; 1 Cor. 9:1-18; Matt. 28:19f; Luke 24:44-49).

6. Live sacrifically by serving others as a committed member under the accountability of the local church (Eph. 5:21; Phil. 2:1-4; 1 Tim. 6:1-6; John 13; Phil. 4:10ff; Acts 2:40ff).

7. Do all things to the glory of God – living “out loud” the two great commandments (1 Cor. 10:31; Matt. 5-7; Luke 10:27).

    Thank you so much for introducing me to Steve Camp! I will run out on my lunch hour and find his book at the closest Christian book store. I am reeling from all of the things God is revealing about the “Word of Faith” ministers. Living in Tulsa, OK and working right down the street from ORU, I have been hit really hard by all of the press. Even though I am completely heartbroken by all of this, I thank God for His faithfulness in drawing the line so that no one else will be taken in by these false prophets. Thanks again! God bless. Laura.

    Once again, Joel Osteen’s utter failure to uphold Christian truth in an age of apostacy only further supports what is all too clear about his teaching: it is spiritually bankrupt.

    Here is a link to articles our ministry has created on Osteen’s heretical compromise that is anointed as “Christianity” today.
