Apparently God is the IRS

This morning on televangelist Joel Osteen's program:

"You learn you're gonna get a refund on your income tax. That's not a lucky break, that's not a coincidence. That's God letting you know you're on his mind. He's directing your steps, orchestrating even the smallest details of your life."
No, I think it means you've been having too much deducted from your check every week.

And didn't athiests also receive the $600 stimulus checks? What is that, a bribe from God? Hush money? C'mon, Joel. We need answers.

Joel Olsteen is nothing but a charismatic salesman.

But I wouldn't buy a car from him.

i find it ever so interesting that no matter who the "evangelists" are, they preach on christianity but really without financial support, they could NOT continue to bring you the word of God. funny, but last time i checked, speaking was free. oh, i get it, they must really mean that with out the financial support, they couldn't "drive the cars and live in the luxuries and wear the suits and travel all over" to preach the word of God. they wanna do it in STYLE, so it will mean MORE. after all, their instructions come directly from the maker himself because they are THE chosen ones. take from the poor to support the rich. ah yes, it's in the bible, right? and God will hear you better the more you donate, right? well parden me but i think organized religion is all bullshit because the God i believe in doesn't care about materialistic facts, money, nor social stigmas. he hears me just fine even if i'm naked in the tub when i do my praying. do evangelists really seriously think their words are heard louder just because they are backed by money and prestige? yeah, right, and THEY blend......
all i see on TV evangelistic series is a business. it's a business to make money using God as collateral. shame on them. sorry to go off like that but i agree with ya dave, and if you'll KINDLY send me your 10 percent donation, i promise you will be blessed tenfold. amen.
