Joel Osteen, Lakewood Church Win Copyright Lawsuit: Is This God's Doing?


If you recall, the wife of Joel Osteen, Victoria Osteen won a lawsuit that was filed against her for allegedly and violently throwing flight attendant against the airplane's bathroom door, Shannon Brown back in 2006, according to Fox News.  Now, the Joel Osteen and Lakewood Church has won another lawsuit for using a song,"Signaling through the Flames," written by Richard Cupolo and John Emanuele.  They were accused of using the song after a year's time past the expiration date of the copyright agreement.  They were suing for $3 million dollars.  The average person whom profess salvation may think God is on this couple's side, but that is not necessarily so. There are ministers of the gospel whom are allegedly serving the wrong god and if they made a discreet pact with Satan, they will seem as though everything has been working in their favor.  We are not saying that Joel and Victoria Osteen are Satan worshipers, but according to reports, they both seem to have offended and mistreated people and not allegedly made peace with them.  These rich and famous preachers of mega ministries many times win their court cases, because of their money and who they know in the judicial system, not necessarily because they know God.  Therefore, if they have not done these people right in both cases, God will give them a worse judgement they were suppose to get while on earth.   We do not wish anything on this couple, but Joel and Victoria Osteen seem to be like many celebrity pastors or mega ministries, they seem to think they are above the law, we could be wrong, but it does not look right for them to win both lawsuits without any of the other parties being compensated for what they claim was not right, according to the law.


You see, this is why a lot of people do not have a lot to do with the church these days.  It seems like many of these popular ministers are loved by God more than people when they do not treat people right and compromise in a lawsuit, if they know they are wrong.   God is not pleased with them being able to win cases against people whom request they abide by the agreement or to keep their hands to themselves.  It is not fair, but God sees it.  They may act as though God is on their side, but the very people they allegedly offend will rise above their offense, because it is not right if they have done wrong .   Those whom appear they are following Jesus Christ are not necessarily doing His will.   So don't fool yourself, just because these plaintiffs may not have a household name, have millions of dollars in the bank similar to celebrity ministers does not mean God does not love them any less than Joel and Victoria Osteen

We hope and pray the plaintiffs, Shannon Brown,Richard Cupolo and John Emanuele are discouraged from serving the Lord, because of their past court cases in the favor of Joel and Victoria Osteen.  Furthermore, we pray that God will guide Joel Osteen to be like his late father, John Osteen who led a full gospel ministry, not one that is necessarily one that seems to be a an alleged mega ministry built off of fame and fortune.  It would be nice to see Lakewood Church organized under the full anointing of complete holiness and righteousness.   If it is, we apologize for missing it.



Joel Osteen, Lakewood Church Win Copyright Lawsuit
By Katherine Weber , Christian Post Reporter

A federal judge ruled in favor of Lakewood Church last Tuesday in a copyright court case involving Senior Pastor Joel Osteen and his wife, Victoria, versus Richard Cupolo and John Emanuele, who perform as indie music duo "American Dollar."

Cupolo and Emanuele filed the suit against the Osteens and Lakewood Church in Aug. 2011, arguing that Lakewood Church continued to use the duo's song, "Signaling through the Flames," after the year-long copyright agreement had expired. The duo sought $3 million in damages.

A 58-second clip of the song was used in advertisements for the DVD "Supernatural," which features Joel Osteen offering...Read full article, here.
