Someone just gave me a booklet that Dodie Osteen wrote about her healing from cancer. It is an amazing story of faith and victory over disease. She is the evangelist's wife that Herb Mjorud talked about when he explained that he was inspired to speak out scriptures on healing each morning in order to obtain his healing from cancer as well.
Dodie Osteen is Joel Osteen's mother. I wrote about Joel Osteen and I just want to make clear since I have written about more than one minister who seems to be infected with the love of money and has compromised the pure gospel because of it, that there is more to them than meets the eye.
Joel was raised by godly parents, and Dodie has a real and vital faith which saved her from death. Joel's foundation through his parents was definitely solid and biblical. I just don't know what happened.
Mac Hammond teaches many good things on healing and faith and does many good things for people. And I wouldn't want to discredit him or throw out the many good things about his ministry just because of the emphasis on money that I found at his church.
We need unity in the body of Christ. If or when persecution comes, people like Joel Osteen and Mac Hammond will be targeted and subject to persection, and I hate to think that any of us, fellow members of the body of Christ would be happy to see them hurt in any way.
