Aug 9th 2008 8:02AM PS. TV church is broadcast by pastors who have their own "real" churches which hold them accountable
Aug 9th 2008 8:00AM Do you really think that such a ludicrous incident could be the beginning of the downfall of this ministry? I hope that people have a little more intelligent judgement than to hold this against the Osteens. Even if Victoria behaved inappropriately this is entirely forgiveable. None of us is perfect. Not even our ministers. The work they have done should supercede and cover this human error.
Aug 9th 2008 7:58AM This outrageous incident is a sign of our times. It should never have come to court, wasting our tax dollars.
Certainly something happened to spark this. None of us is perfect - not even the Osteens. It is possible that Victoria Osteen, feeling pressure from travelling or the pressure of being in the public eye, may have expressed some probably well deserved annoyance inappropriately. But the stuardesses' claims that Victoria elbowed her and had a resulting loss of faith are absolutely ludicrous and show her tendency to exaggerate.
A smiliar experience happened to me some years ago as I was returning home from a long business trip and was overtired. The flight attendant on board was particularly aggressive about enforcing rules regarding the placement of my luggage (which had been placed where other attendants allowed.) I became annoyed and expressed my annoyance to her but then did as I was told. When I arrived at my destination the airport police came on board to escort me out of the plane and interrogate me about my behavior. I could not believe it! One of the other passengers on the plane voluntarily came to the police to tell them that I had done nothing wrong and that this was not sensible. She also wrote me a letter which I later attached to my complaint against the attendant. Of course, Northwest Airlines, in this case, stood by their staff and threatened to place me on a blackball list. They didn't, and all was well tho in retrospect I probably should have sued them.
This will pass and God will protect the Osteen's. It is just the enemy attempting to limit and destroy this powerful work of God. He won't. And the Lord will take the evil intention and turn it into good.
God Bless you Joel and Victoria!
