 16,000 attend the grand opening of Joel Olsteen's new Lakewood Church, including Texas Gov. Rick Per


Best selling author and evangelist Joel Olsteen presides over America's largest church, the Lakewood Church, in Houston, TX. The Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) reports that Lakewood recently became the first church in the United States to average more than 30,000 worshipers weekly, and estimates that over seven million tune-in weekly to listen to Osteen's message.

The church recently moved to the Houston Compaq Center, which has a seating capacity of 16,000. The facility was filled to capacity on July 19 during the grand opening, broadcast by TBN. ...

 Re:

What struck me about this story was the involvement of Rick Perry. I've been very wary of him. He doesn't sit well with me. Look for his presidential bid to come into play, despite his so-called "hesitance." He will be a front-runner.

I think the Biblical reference is speaking of true believers. (and thats not to say there are no believers there... there is usually a remnant.)

 Re:

It really hurts to see us so quick to point fingers at everyone trying to find out whos the bad guy, in a community of grace we sure do point fingers a lot. I'm not saying everyone is a good guy but that none of us deserve our Lord Jesus and to pick out who He doesn't except is wrong.

I was thinking the exact same thing and was trying to figure out a way to word it but you said it perfectly! ... "in a community of grace we sure do point fingers a lot."

God bless,

PS: It wouldn't hurt me a bit if Greg decided to close all the discussion threads.

 Re:

I am not sure if closing down the discussion threads is a good idea. They do serve a purpose to inform of what is going on in the wider community. I have posted on the persecuted church to raise awareness of it. The key is looking at the admonitions to pray before we post. Something I don't always do. Something I will do. If we did that, pray before we post, the quality of threads will be better.

Indeed, I would dare say that posting negatively about another christian, saint?, that maybe wrong in some way is a dangerous thing. Should you want to be measured by that same measuring stick? I don't want to be for sure. Cater Colin did a sermon on "angry watchmen" speaking about beating up the bride of Christ. I know that there are wolfs out there, however Jesus did send His disciples out amoungst them. He didn't however tell His disciples to attack them...

Please, I'm not meaning to come across as hurtful or angry, I'm hurting inside to see His body so against one another, so ready to point the finger with accusations, so paranoid. We can have the right theology and still be nasty people. We can have tons of works but they are still filthy rages. We are to be known by how we love.
