I know there is a general distrust of guys like Pastor Osteen, however, I find that I benefit a lot from listening to his talks. They just started up Joel Osteen Radio on SiriusXM and I have been listening and I think there is a lot a Catholic can take from Mr. Osteen.
Now, of course, he isn’t Catholic and at times he’s going to say things that don’t jive with our faith but his very positive motivational style and how he works the bible into solving everyday problems is something that I have enjoyed.
Now, like I said, you have to be able to tune out the stuff that doesn’t work for Catholics but I’m one who believes that Catholics can learna thing or two from our non-Catholic Christian brothers and sisters. I don’t find any shame in borrowing from other faiths so long as it doesn’t offend my Catholic faith.
What say you?
