Joel Osteen “news flash”!


This audience for this blog post/link is Christ-followers, but some non-believers may find it funny, too.

Even if you don’t know who is Paul Washer, this satirical article will be funny, but if you have ever heard him (and what he has said about Joel, which is not funny) it will actually be uproarious! (My son was trying to read it aloud to me and was struggling to get through it.)

HOUSTON, TX—What seemed to be a harmless mix-up in mistakenly scheduling missionary and preacher Paul Washer to speak to Joel Osteen’s congregation at Lakewood Church turned into tragedy Sunday, as Washer’s fiery sermon saw thousands brutally slaughtered where they sat, sources reported.

From what investigators have been able to piece together so far, Lakewood’s Coach of Vision and Teaching had contacted the agent of deceased actor Paul Walker to schedule a motivational speech, not realizing he had passed away. Walker’s former representative assumed the coach had meant to schedule Paul Washer for the church service, and made the arrangements for Washer to deliver the Word that Sunday.

If you would like to get better appreciation for why it’s funny, here’s a link to a relevant YouTube video:

[BTW, if you have ever rolled your eyes at the (not all, but most) fake preachers on TV and then changed channels, you’ll like the vid, because he’s right.]

[2nd and 3rd BTWs: Oh, and in case you can’t tell, that pic from the article is modified AND the video’s background music was added by the person who uploaded it because I know the full vid, and Paul would never have that kind of stuff.]

Oh, and some of you will be offended. You have been warned.

    This is what happens when Elijah takes Ahab’s pulpit. True prophets are as rare as hen’s teeth today.
