Osteen’s Trivialization of God by Dr. Michael S. Horton

Osteen’s Trivialization of God:
  According to Osteen… According to Christianity…
God: A source of personal well-being; used rather than worshipped Sovereign Creator, Judge and Redeemer
Our Problem: Lack of success in life God’s holiness and justice and our sin
God’s Solution: Principles for walking in God’s Blessings Christ’s death, burial, resurrection as one-sided divine rescue
The Goal: Our Best Life Now Suffering now, glory at the end
Scripture: Catalogue of Practical Advice (the Bible as fortune-cookie) God’s Law and Gospel (exposing our sin/announcing God’s grace)
