Joel Osteen’s church was robbed earlier this month for $600,000 and the theft has put churchgoers everywhere on edge. The large sum of funds collected at the Lakewood Church was over one weekend and so far the thieves haven’t been located. According to Charisma News on Wednesday, there was a $25,000 reward posted for the help in getting the recovery of the funds.
On Wednesday, we exclusively spoke with sources at the Lakewood Church to find out an update on this story. Due to the fact that this is an ongoing investigation, the facts remain the same. The money is still missing and the police are searching for suspects. People are encouraged to call Crimestoppers if they have any information or tips.
Isn’t it interesting that someone would have been bold enough to steal $600,000 with God watching? Obviously when one steals from a convenience store it is essential to cover their face with a mask to avoid detection from cameras. Yet, it begs to ask the question of how does one hide with when God looks down and sees his cash being carried off?
In the Bible, Ananais and Saphria were struck down for stealing and God could see they weren’t telling the truth about it too. While we might not be the biggest Bible thumper in the business (that is Joel Osteen’s job,) it’s pretty obvious that if the cops don’t catch these thieves then God most certainly will.
The idea someone would be so bold to steal from a church is cold. Add Joel Osteen’s status of a celebrity which made the church an easy target and it’s really quite mean. This sum came for hard working people who are doing their part to better the world.
Watch here for updates as we plan to follow this story as developments come up. Just as a friendly reminder, the right thing to do is return the funds or give up the thief’s name. It’s God’s money and it should be returned to Lakewood Church immediately. And, if that isn’t enough of a concern for the thieves then they should look up because God can see them with ease.
