Joel Osteen Helps Inaugurate Houston's First Official Gay Mayor

by Lillian Kwon, The Christian Post

HOUSTON, TX - Pastor of America's largest church, (Joel) Osteen was invited to offer the opening prayer at the inauguration of Houston's elected city officials on Monday. While praying for the 14-member City Council, he also specifically thanked God for the new mayor, Annise Parker, a partnered lesbian.

"She's our mayor. Joel doesn't view Annise through a gay lens," Don Iloff, Jr., spokesman for Lakewood Church in Houston, told The Christian Post. "He sees her as a person."

"Annise says she's a believer. Let her stand before God; that's kind of where Joel is," Iloff noted. "He's not going to tell homosexuals they can't come to our church. If the Holy Spirit convicts them, then they'll change."

That is, in the current lingo, "messed up".  Christianity is not about all inclusive love only, its also about righteousness and speaking out against sin.  What is the church coming to?

I think the Church has been far too agressive as it relates to calling out sin in judgement.  It is one thing to be led by the spirit and in love address sin in someone as oppossed to being self-righteous and addressing sin in judgement.  The problem is that for the longest time when sin is addressed it has been done in the flesh and from a law perspective which brings more death.  If the spirit is moving and the motivation is love I think conviction comes which brings life.

It actually hasn't been aggressive enough.
