Dr. Michael Horton will appear on 60 Minutes this Sunday, October 14, to discuss the ministry of televangelist Joel Osteen and whether or not Osteen's motivational message is more about self-help than a true representation of the Christian faith. 60 Minutes airs on CBS Sundays at 7 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings).
When the producers of 60 Minutes asked Dr. Horton about the amazing success of Osteen's ministry, Horton replied, "The Christian gospel is not determined by success, but by faithfulness to the original message of Christ and him crucified. That may not fill stadium-sized church gatherings, but it's the message that true Christianity is centered on."
The Rev. Dr. Horton is professor of systematic theology and apologetics at Westminster Seminary California, the host of the nationally syndicated broadcast of The White Horse Inn radio program (Salem Radio Network), editor-in-chief of Modern Reformation magazine, and a minister in the United Reformed Churches of North America.
I don't normally watch 60 Minutes (my mom does),
but I'm definitely going to make an exception in this instant.
We have preachers following Osteen, believing that's what a successful church is.
God is not coming back for an edifice.
He's coming back for PEOPLE.
YOU ALL BETTER RECOGNIZE!!
