Joel Osteen is one of the most popular evangelist on TV and owns a megachurch in Houston, Texas. For the past several days, folks on social media have been blasting the well-known preacher for not opening up the doors to his church, which is stadium that seats over 16,000 people. Joel Osteen is a staple for the people of Houston so this comes as a shock to its residents.
Joel Osteen Tweets During Houston Storm
Joel has taken to Twitter the last few days, posting his usual cryptic banter. With every tweet, he has been getting backlash from the Twitter world. Even people in different states have called out the motivational preacher. By this action alone, Osteen may have sealed the fate of his local celebrity status. Once this storm blows over and the city of Houston goes back to normal, he will start getting media backlash like he has never seen before.
Here is an earlier tweet posted by Joel Osteen:
Victoria & I are praying for everyone affected by Hurricane Harvey. Please join us as we pray for the safety of our Texas friends & family.

People are reminding Joel Osteen how the Saints opened up the Superdome in New Orleans and how another local Houston celebrity, “Mattress Mac” McInvale opened up his two furniture stores that are let’s just say, HUGE in size.
Makes you wonder if there is any flooding around Joel Osteen’s house….
