Joel Osteen gets his own SiriusXM channel

NEW YORK (AP) -- Texas pastor Joel Osteen is getting his own channel on SiriusXM satellite radio, which will air his sermon at Yankee Stadium this Saturday live nationally.

Osteen, who preaches to 40,000 people each week at Houston's Lakewood megachurch, already shows his messages on the Trinity television network. The new SiriusXM channel will feature live call-in shows hosted by Osteen and his wife, fellow Lakewood pastor Victoria Osteen, along with rebroadcasts of Osteen's past sermons.

SiriusXM said Monday that it will announce later when Osteen's new channel will begin operation.

Sirius has some 25.8 million subscribers worldwide.

I know God loves us and wants us to be happy. Joel Osteen Is going to have to answer to God why hes not preaching on Sin or asking his people if they were to die today would they know 100% that they would go to heaven? The fact is there is a Hell and not just bad people that go there by our standards.

We are all sinners and need to ask Jesus Christ to forgive us and be our personal savior.


For the last 10 years I been a member of a independent Bible Believing Baptist Church That preaches on Sin regardless what this nation or other churches are now saying.

This dude always has a smile on his face. I guess I would have a smile on my face if I received close to a million dollars a week from weekly donations. That's $52mil a year just on weekly donations; all in the name of Jesus.

According to the Bible, there's this thing called "tithing" that is demanded of all Christians. It is the giving of 10% of your earnings each month for church support. Osteen is not asking anything of parishioners that hasn't already been put forth to Christians for thousands of years. You can take issue with that all you want, but it's hardly a basis for which to accuse Osteen of being a "con artist."

 

That being said, he does not take a dime from the church. He hasn't since his first best-selling book, and even then, he puts a great deal of the money he makes back into the church.
