Last night my wife and I were watching Hannity & Colmes on Fox News, when suddenly who should appear to give religious consolation to the viewers, than Joel Osteen and his wife, Victoria.
They asked the Osteens how people suffering in the California wildfires can find hope. The Osteens talked about trusting God despite trouble, being better rather than being bitter, staying positive, and not blaming God. What they said was fine, but it was what they did not say that struck me. Not once did they mention Jesus Christ. They were on the air for several minutes, and were asked multiple questions by both Sean Hannity and Colmes. The door was wide open to share the gospel, but they never did. Despite being asked about the meaning of suffering and how to find hope, they said nothing about the cross. Nothing about the resurrection. Not a word about Jesus. I guess they didn't want to offend anybody.
