Joel Osteen Blasted For Not Opening Church Doors To Flood Victims

Folks all over the nation are pretty displeased with Houston Megachurch pastor and motivational Christian speaker Joel Osteen. Even though Houston is the home base for his worldwide, multi-million dollar ministry…somehow, his Sanctuary’s doors aren’t open to those in need during record flooding in his city.

The location for Osteen’s Lakewood Church was once upon a time the Compaq Center sports arena — home of the Houston Rockets — and can comfortably seat nearly 17,000 people. But, now that thousands in the city are in distress, displaced, and in need of a safe dry spot to go…the church’s doors are locked.

Apparently, Osteen and crew report to TMZ that the reason the church isn’t open for those in need is due to flooding of the roads in the area. But let social media tell it…

SMH! Look, we aren’t weather or road experts over here…but that definitely looks like useable space for those in need of help.
