Pastor Walks Back On Words… But Doesn’t Take Them Back
Aug 26, 2018 // By:Gary // No Comment
Victoria Osteen, wife of evangelical megachurch speaker and author Joel Osteen, is standing by her remarks that called upon congregants at Lakewood Church to “do good for your own self” because obedience, the church and worship are not for God as much as for self-happiness.
“WHILE I ADMIT THAT I COULD HAVE BEEN MORE ARTICULATE IN MY REMARKS, I STAND BY MY POINT THAT WHEN WE WORSHIP GOD AND ARE OBEDIENT TO HIM WE WILL BE BETTER FOR IT,” SHE STATED. “I DID NOT MEAN TO IMPLY THAT WE DON’T WORSHIP GOD; THAT’S RIDICULOUS, AND ONLY THE CRITICS AND CYNICS ARE INTERPRETING MY REMARKS THAT WAY.”
