[QUOTE=LittleMissMagic;1099089]Isn’t the controversy with him that he lives a frivolent lifestyle?
I used to go to a megachurch in Upstate SC (it’s actually branched out to GA and Coastal SC, now - Newspring Community Church), and we actually had him as a guest pastor once. He’s a good speaker.[/QUOTE]
The controversy with the Olseen’s is that they teach a version of the prosperity gospel. And yeah they do have a pretty opulent lifestyle (he doesn’t take a salary from the church and lives off the sales of his books and speeches, he is also is up front about tithing trying to lead by example) but he earns the money and does a lot of good things.
I agree that he is a good speaker and inspirational. He isn’t my cup of tea as I like to be challenged in my faith.
