Two of America’s most popular Christian pastors, Joel Osteen of Lakewood Church and Rick Warren of Saddleback Church, participated in live tapings of Oprah Winfrey‘s “Oprah’s LifeClass” show for her OWN platform. Apparently Osteen attracted serious traffic to the Houston, as reported by KHOU-TV.
In this short piece, the KHOU-TV reporter asks Winfrey if she’s a “priestess;” Winfrey “defends” Osteen’s naysayers; and they compare who has the “better hair” … to which Winfrey responds: “He does. He’s young and white.”

Not everyone who tuned in to watch Osteen and Warren on “Oprah’s LifeClass” were fans, as some of these comments from Sola Sisters’ Facebook page shows:
Suzanne Kuta “I watched the Rick Warren segment. He and Oprah preached the social gospel and the common god of Universalism. In his last words he told the audience to invest their lives on that which will outlast their lives. He said people will last forever so invest in people. He then said to love God and serve people and you’ll get the task done. Sickening.”
Emily Hope Baker “Nick said people need hope ‘not just for this life, but for the one to come,’ and that we need to “stop looking everywhere and just look up.” Sounded like he was winding up to share the gospel and both Rick & Oprah cut him off right there.”
