TD Jakes and Joel Osteen: Living the American Dream, Through God

We all know TD Jakes and Joel Osteen as two of the most popular ministers ever to preach the good word of the Lord, and they’ve benefited from it well.

With CD’s, DVD’s, TV programs, roadshows, movies and even a record label, these two preachers have formed mini-conglomerates through their love of Jesus Christ.

MSNBC interviewed Jakes and Osteen about their successes and the ever expanding “Christian Market” in this video.

Can You Be Cool and Still be Down with Jesus Christ?

Can you be cool and still be down with JC? Of course you can! There is no rule saying that as a Christian you have to live under a rock and isolate yourself from the world. 

Being down with Jesus Christ doesn’t mean you have to give up your interests in pop culture. It’s quite the contrary. The reality is you have to deal with the spiritual and secular world on a daily basis. A Christian is someone who believes in the teachings of Jesus Christ. To be cool is to be aware or show involvement in new trends or styles.  A Christian can definitely fit into both categories with no problem. 

Reach Magazine TV co-host J.O., a born again Christian, says “I’m still gonna kick it with all my homies on the block but my actions gotta show something way different than what they are used to seeing.”

Many people have their own image of what a Christian is supposed to be and how they are supposed to act. Just remember, all individuals are different and yes this includes Christians.

In today’s society young people have to adapt to a variety of situations.  In the words of J.O., “Christians are called to be chameleons, we are called to blend in, but not sin.”

We can all be up on the latest fashions, sports, and music and still go to church, read the bible, and praise the Lord.  There is a misconception that Christians must forfeit being cool in order to serve God, but that is not the case. 

 Many celebrities like Beyonce, Tony! Toni! Tone!, Common, and Ving Rhames have a strong belief in Christ.

A word to the wise;  hold strong to your faith in all situations and around all types of people- that will make you cool and down with Jesus Christ.
