Good News! Joel Osteen Admits That There Is Sin!

In a stunning turn of events, Joel Osteen has come out and admitted that there is something that is actually sinful. In an interview with the Huffington Post, he bent over backwards to say that homosexuals are approved of God. That is no real surprise, but then he went on to say the following:

“The Bible said a sin is pride, a sin is selfish ambition. We tend to pick out these certain things,” he said.
I am actually dumbfounded at this amazing turn of events. I wonder if he will ever get around to tell us the solution to our sin problem. But wait, it gets even better than that, Osteen actually took a stand on Scripture and admitted to even reading Scripture at all:
“I believe the scripture says that being gay is a sin. But, you know, every time I say that, Chris … people say, well, you are a gay hater and you’re a gay basher,” Osteen told Wallace during the interview. “I’m not. I don’t – I don’t dislike anybody. Gays are some of the nicest, kindest, most loving people in the world. But my faith is based on what I believe the scripture says, and that’s the way I read the scripture.”
This truly is shocking news. Given his views on life, God and life, I never really thought he read Scripture at all. But it gets better. He went on to say that the pope is a swell guy, but said he and the pope differ on theology. This is amazing. I didn’t think Osteen actually knew the word theology. Look what he said:

“I think the pope is fantastic, his tone, his humility,” he said.

“We may not agree 100 percent on doctrine and theology, but the Catholic Church, our church, it’s open for everybody. I like his tone, not pushing people away.”

This is clearly a sign of the coming apocalypse.

  1. It could just be me, but I’m pretty sure Scripture doesn’t say “being gay” is a sin. I’m pretty sure it refers to the behavior and those who engage in it. One might call this quibbling or semantics, but when speaking publicly, being specific about such things is important, especially as it concerns what Scripture actually says.
