God does catagorize sin!
Joel Osteen once again proved his ignorance of the truth when he appeared with Oprah. Who knows why except that she is an all embracing, tolorant individual whose new age beliefs allow her to stand alongside anyone who isn’t a real Christian. It is clear that Mr. Osteen represents another Jesus and Paul said in Galatians 1:8 “But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!” Mr. Osteen is in grave danger.

Now remember that she also sits at the feet of another antichrist, Ekhart Tolle. It is clear that she has an ear for anyone other than a true Christian. And the bible speaks of those who won’t endure sound doctrine but will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.
As for Osteen, the scriptures are plain enough. Paul, speaking in 1Corithinians 6:9-11 gives a list of sinners who will not make it to heaven. The list includes fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, effeminate, homosexuals, thieves, the covetous, drunkards, revilers, and swindlers. These will be excluded from heaven. The reason…SIN!
Revelation 22:15 declares that Outside (of the kingdom of heaven) are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying.
1Timothy 1:8-11 gives another list of sins which are judged by the law of God. Included in this list is homosexuality. Then we can turn back to Genesis and see how God views the sin of Sodomy, homosexuality in the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. At one time the plain was like the garden of eden. But when the sin of the cities of the plains reached its zenith, God wiped out the entire area and today no one lives there. Sodom and Gomorrah are used as examples of the judgment of God against this sin which is the lowest that men can go.
God hates sin, is of purer eyes than to behold evil and has created hell as the final depository for those who will not repent of their sin.
But lest you think I am leaving sinners with no hope, I conclude with 1Cor 6:11 which says, Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God. You see, there were former homosexuals in the Church at Corinth. They had repented of their sin and had been cleansed by the Blood of Jesus.
Turn ye, Turn ye for why will you die when there is forgiveness and salvation to be found in the person of Jesus Christ.
