Osteen: Mormons Are Christians Too

Lakewood Church pastor Joel Osteen generated a ton of news last week with his statement that Mormons are Christians.

Here’s an interview with CBN later last week right before his “Night of Hope”

Osteen also insists Obama is a Christian. That fallacy was cleared up back in 2008 by conservative columnist Cal Thomas:

Some insight into Obama’s “Christianity” comes from an interview he gave in 2004 to Chicago Sun-Times religion editor Cathleen Falsani for her book, “The God Factor: Inside the Spiritual Lives of Public People.”

“I’m rooted in the Christian tradition,” said Obama. He then adds something most Christians will see as universalism: “I believe there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people.”


Essential reading for worship leaders since 2002.
