Joel Osteen does not have any sellable skills. Yet he is worth millions. How much personal wealth does Osteen as well as other preachers need. Not that Muslims practice this but the Qur'anic passage stated: "They asked you how much (of their money) they should give away in charity. Tell them all that they don't NEED". I am not making a case for the Qur'an or Muslims because there are matters there too that can be objectionable. Personally, I think that the preachers of all religions are a bunch of crooks who instill the fear of sin and hell in peoples' minds so they can bleed them. Politicians do the same.
