Joel Osteen And Homosexuality: Does Joel Osteen Believe That Homosexuality Is A Sin?

There has been a great debate regarding Joel Osteen and homosexuality in Christian circles for many years now.  In interview after interview it has seemed that he was just extremely hesitant to come out and say that homosexuality is a sin.  Well, now that has changed.  In a new appearance on the Piers Morgan show, Joel Osteen very clearly comes out and says that homosexuality is a sin.  In fact, as you watch the interview you almost get the sense that he was fully prepared for that question.

Do does Joel Osteen believe that homosexuality is a sin?


That debate is now settled.

However, if you watch this new interview you also get the sense that Joel Osteen is almost apologizing for having to take this point of view.  As Piers Morgan continues to press him on this point, it is obvious that Joel Osteen is very uncomfortable and that he would much rather be talking about something else.

The following is footage of the conversation about homosexuality that Piers Morgan had with Joel Osteen.  It is really fascinating to watch....

However, it is important to note that Joel Osteen calls homosexuals "good people" during the interview.

So what is wrong with that?

Well, the Scriptures tell us that none of us are good.

Romans 3:23 tells us that "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."

The truth is that we are all sinners and we all need a Savior.

But we should applaud Joel Osteen for at least being willing to take a stronger stand on homosexuality and for finally being willing to clearly say that it is sin.

We all need to stand up for what the Word of God says.  It is only going to become more difficult in the months and years ahead.

God takes sin very seriously.  It is not something that He just "brushes under the rug".

For much more on sin and judgment, we encourage you to check out an article that we have published on another website entitled "What Does The Bible Say About Judgment?"

So why should we care about what God has to say?

Well, because heaven and hell are very real.  If you don't believe this, you might want to consider the testimony of some people that have been to those places....
