What Is The Difference Between Joel Osteen and a Fortune Cookie?

I'm not trying to be mean-spirited with this post. I'm linking somebody else's work. Tim Challies ate Thai food and read the fortune cookie. From Tim:

 I thought "This fortune sounds like something Joel Osteen would say." And then it struck me–there is very little difference between Joel and those fortune cookies (except that the cookies are delicious, of course).

Tim then sampled some of Joel Osteen's work, and created a 12 question quiz to compare the two. You can take the quiz on his blog. Let me know how you do in the comments.

  1. I got a fortune cookie recently that read: “It is useless to spread a net in full view of all the birds.” My wife told me that it was in the Bible. Sure enough, It was Proverbs 1:17. Should we stop reading the Book of proverbs now?

  2. I’m not sure I can help you. Can you point me to any hint in this post where I might have suggested the book of Proverbs become invalidated by Tim Challies’ exercise?
    All this had to do was with was another blogger’s post comparing fortune cookies to some of Joel Osteen’s sayings. Nothing more, nothing less. There was no other motive or agenda involved.
    Proverbs is a wonderful book and I try to read a chapter from it each day.
