After being completely exposed, Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church now opens its doors to the public, and they’re doing a LOT of explaining.
HOUSTON, TEXAS — It seems that Osteen has picked his soul up from the ground after it was stomped on by the general public for a day.
Joel Osteen, the pastor of Lakewood Church, agreed to open the doors to the facility just hours ago.
Thank you Houston. Your response has been overwhelming. We cannot thank enough the hundreds upon hundreds of volunteers who came out today! pic.twitter.com/hI1jl5Sry8

As could be expected, most interviews weren’t done by Joel, himself. Instead, his brother, Dr. Paul Osteen, stood in the gap on Joel’s behalf.
***CRAAAAAZY how things don’t even look wet in there, huh?***
If you didn’t know any better, you’d think that was ol’ Joel himself with the fade. An uncanny resemblance, right? But yeah, that’s Joel’s older brother.
According to Paul, they didn’t have precautions set in place to accommodate such an influx of people prior to officially opening the doors.
Taking a hint from the situation at the Superdome after Hurricane Katrina, it’s quite understandable they’d want to have those measures in place.
Actually, that’s commendable of them to have those security measures in place before opening the doors.
If that was the case, why didn’t they just say that from the jump? Why not give their congregation and the public an update or two about “the plan”?
Instead, they left everyone in the flood waters without a shimmer of hope. And now, they’re backtracking and attempting to “save face.”
Well, better late than never.
Still though, Joel Osteen’s reputation is probably down the drain for now. Who knows? People might forget about it all sometime down the line. But as of right now, dude’s contributions have possibly plummeted.
And maybe THAT’s what got him to act. As the saying goes, people don’t really start to hear you until you mess with their money.
