I am not sure but I think Joel Osteen’s Church is the Church of the Prosperity Gospel. I understand that he and his wife are worth mega millions each in their own right apart from the assets of the Church which is Osteen’s family business. Joel, not even a theology student, inherited his father’s business when he died suddenly.
Kanye West was a crude rapper but seems to have had a conversion to the Church of the Prosperity Gospel. He got a gig at Osteen’s Church and hopes to sell mega millions of dollars of Gospel music which he is now recording in a rap sort of fashion.
I wonder if Joel, in helping his new found prosperity buddy, Kanye is getting a cut of the goodies by promoting him at his entertainment complex in Houston?
Are Joel and Kanye the modern version of Peter and Paul who are the almond joys of the Church of the Prosperity Gospel?
Can the Catholic Church learn from the J & K Church?
