The link to Osteen’s website was not accessible and further proof that the whole article was indeed a hoax. Osteen has never made such comments and has continued to post positive, uplifting, Christian messages on his Twitter account and his actual website.
“Halfway through his morning Sunday service he dropped to his knees and began crying, and then announced, ‘I am God! I am just as much a God as our Lord is!’ The 10,000 members in attendance appeared stunned,” the fake article claimed.
“This ministry is committed to helping people from all walks of life experience the unconditional love and unending hope found only in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ,” Osteen’s website states.
“Now more than ever, people need hope. Together, we want to offer the miracle of unconditional love and unending hope found in Jesus to the world,” Osteen posted on the site.
