Israel Houghton Fired by Lakewood Ministries


Earlier this week gospel singer Israel Houghton caused a firestorm after he was spotted on the beach in Mexico with Adrienne Bailon just weeks after announcing he was divorcing his wife after 20 years of marriage [click here if you missed that].

Now its been revealed that Israel has been removed from the leadership team at Joel Osteen's Lakewood mega church...

Lakewood Church officials tell Radar Online
“Lakewood Church released Israel Houghton from his responsibilities as a worship leader [in February] and placed him on indefinite leave. Since that time, he has not been featured in any Lakewood Church related activities.”
“Lakewood Church is not at liberty to discuss publicly any details regarding Israel’s personal situation, but stands ready to provide Israel with spiritual counseling and guidance should he choose to seek it.”
Meanwhile the Lakewood Church has removed all traces of Israel from its website.

Welp. If you are in a Godly leadership position, you are called to higher standards and though we all fall short of Glory of God some things are just not appropriate or acceptable.

Lakewood Church is a satanic entity. Throw thy cash to thee. These clowns inspire you to give up your funds when you know the most high care not for these things. The will get another master manipulator and move right along.

@9:49 - Exactly. If someone in ministry doesn't understand this, they are in worse shape then they think and shouldn't be leading anyone in anything having to do with God. I wonder if he spoke with Joel about all this before posting all his business on social media. I'm not a big fan of the Osteen's, but I give them credit for distancing themselves and their ministry from this buffoonery. The adultery, divorce, vacation with a woman not his wife, and social media posts are indicative that he needs to step back and reassess God's purpose for his life.

He is pimping with his side ho, and Joel is pimping his congregation. Joel is protecting his income as you have to "act" above reproach, when pulpit pimping.

Joel Osteen is a fake, fraud, money grubber. Joel Osteen should also be fired and stoned.
