Lakewood Church leader and best-selling author Joel Osteen has encouraged Christians to be careful of what they watch for entertainment, as negative images and violence will “depress” their spirit and prevent them from entering fully into God’s rest.

In a recent blog post, Osteen, 53, wrote that the apostle Paul encourages Christians to “enter into the rest of God” in the New Testament book of Hebrews. However, it’s not always easy to maintain internal peace when every day brings new temptations and challenges.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?


If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
