    One of those kind that hit you over the head and you are "healed"?

    They are amusing. Just like magicians.

    No, but there's an interview he did with Larry King where he basically doesn't stand up for what Christians believe, instead relying on the old "I can't judge their hearts" move to avoid stating outright if he believes you can only go to heaven through acceptance of Jesus. KINDA important to Christianity, ya know.

    thanks for your concern, but watching him on tv, the things he says and the way he says it makes sense to me. plastic or not, i figured it is worth a try. anything to stop the downward spiral.

    comtrad, if you dont know him then you should at least do a little investigation. like i said, if he has my attention, he has something special.

    You're better off finding a small, local church instead of the Super Bowl revivals hucksters like Osteen put on.

    You can Google the clips and analysis of Osteen's appearance on LArry King, including his apologies when the backlash occurred.

    *my opinion*

    if you have to watch a guy on TV to become a Christian, you have bigger issues in your life than needing religion.

    I'm just saying, that's all

    i don't HAVE to watch him on tv to become a christian. i was flipping through the channels and saw him on and remembered my mom mentioning him so i decided to stop and watch for a minute. like i said, the things he says and they way he says them make sense to me. i do have issues bigger than what he or any other church/man of god can do for me, but i figured what could it hurt.

    not gonna pay him any money. i am just desperately trying to better myself for my benefit and the benefit of everyone around me. if it turns out that he is a "plastic god", then i will move on and keep trying to better myself however that may be. like i said, what could it hurt?

    no. i think what he really does is take scriptures from the bible and repeats them in Lyman's terms for people to understand better. it works for me so far.
