Greetings Travellers!! Christian or no christian I would think that everyone has somehow heard of the televangelist Joel Osteen. He is one of the most popular preachers on earth next to TD Jakes and Benny Hinn. Now, a very well constructed elaborate Hoax attempted to portray Joel Osteen denouncing Christ as the lord and savior and resigning from his church as preacher. The story was believed by millions at first but it is as false as ever.


The hoax includes a fake Twitter feed, a YouTube video from "ChristianityNews" containing mockups of news websites trumpeting Osteen's loss of faith, and a fake website that looks similar to the pastor's own site.
                 
                     -->

"Deep down in my heart, for a number of years now, I have been questioning the faith, Christianity, and whether Jesus Christ is really my, or anyone's, 'savior,'" the fake Osteen writes, thanking his wife, his congregation, Texas, "and my close friends, Oprah Winfrey and Larry King," and pledging to devote his efforts to environmental issues from now on. Lakewood Church officials say they are aware of the hoax. NPR has tracked the website to an entity called BMG Enterprises in Milwaukee.

So Joel Osteen is still a proclaimed christian and still serving the Lord. But imagine if this was true...hmmm. Anyway it doesn't change the fact that my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed
