Joel Osteen Compares God to a “Spare Tire” as He Lectures Poor People on Contentment

Talk about cultish! Joel Osteen, false teacher and fake pastor, is most definitely a cult leader. The followers of Joel Osteen’s ministry do not follow Christ, they follow the man and they are in it for no other reason than to hear the man tickle their ears with his motivational pep talks and uplifting speeches.

Joel Osteen, one of the world’s most famous and prosperous false teachers–estimated to be worth about $100 million–appeared on the Today Show to lecture people who don’t have the luxury of owning a 17 thousand square foot home with an Olympic size pool on how to be content with what you have.

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore. This reduces our traffic and causes us to move more of our work exclusively to Substack. Members who subscribe to us on Substack will gain exclusive access to all of our work, free of ads and other annoying pop-ups, as well as member-only access to our podcast archive and controversial moderated content.

Osteen, a prosperity gospel charlatan who has made millions of dollars bilking unsuspecting people who continuously give money to his organization in the hopes of receiving material gain from God in return, went on to compare God to a spare tire that you can use as back-up when things aren’t going your way.

“I think sometimes we’re waiting to see what the day is going to be like, if things are going to go our way,” Osteen said. “But I think if you’re going to be peaceful, you have to make a decision at the start of the day that no matter what comes against you, you’re going to stay in peace, you’re not going to let things take your joy.”

He continued, “I think of it like you have a spare tire in your car. You’re not planning on having a flat, but you have provision just in case something happens. I think the same way, we’re going to plan on having a great day, but we may bump into some, you know, people that are rude, or our plans may not work out.”

“We may get a negative report,” he added. “But you have to make the decision before, ahead of time, that today is a gift from God. I’m not going to get rattled. I’m going to stay in peace, knowing that he is in control.”

Osteen’s message of prosperity through self-motivation is deeply rooted in the Word of Faith heresy which is essentially a Christian-themed pyramid scheme of “sowing seeds” of faith through financial giving where typically only the people at the top of the pyramid–like himself–actually reap any of the benefit.
