My Last Osteen Post, For A While

Ok, I'm still upset that I missed Joel Osteen's visit last week. Last night on the way home I tuned in to BB King's song When Love Came To Town on the radio. I found myself substituting the name Joel for the word love, and isn't that just easy to do? So when I got home I penned this little diddy that should be sung to the previously mentioned tune. Enjoy the musical version of Your Best Life NOW.

I felt like a sinner, lost you see
The weight of God’s law was just crushing me
I just wasn’t happy, didn’t seem to have faith
That was before Joel Osteen showed me God’s grace

When Joel came to town he taught me to see
God’s preferential treatment was owed to me
I’m living favor minded, no more keeping me down
I’ve changed my thinking after Joel came to town

Joel told me to enlarge my vision, live to give
Your best life NOW you must now live
You can be happy and fulfilled, starting today
Just believe in yourself, get out of God’s way

When Joel came to town he taught me to see
God’s preferential treatment was owed to me
I’m living favor minded, no more keeping me down
I’ve changed my thinking after Joel came to town

God’s keeping a record of every deed you’ve done
He’s kept a record of every seed you’ve sown
It didn’t go unnoticed, God saw it you see
So it’s time to cash in, it's your time of need

When Joel came to town he taught me to see
God’s preferential treatment was owed to me
I’m living favor minded, no more keeping me down
I’ve changed my thinking after Joel came to town

No more looking to the cross, I’m thinking positively
I’ll maintain an attitude of expectancy
I’ll look for God to start spreading those miracles around
But I used to think differently before Joel came to town

When Joel came to town he taught me to see
God’s preferential treatment was owed to me
I’m living favor minded, no more keeping me down
I’ve changed my thinking after Joel came to town

I know what your thinking, "no theology of the cross, no gospel Frank". But isn't that really the point? There really is no need to apply Pr. Wilken's diagnostic scrutiny. It's just a song, right?
