The New York Post: Joel Osteen criticized for closing his Houston megachurch amid flooding

Televangelist Joel Osteen cancelled services at his Houston megachurch Sunday and has yet to reopen its doors — despite the fact that thousands of flooded-out residents are desperately seeking shelter.

The perpetually smiling pastor told followers on Twitter on Monday to lean on their faith.

“Jesus promises us peace that passes understanding,” he wrote. “That’s peace when it doesn’t make sense.”

Jesus promises us peace that passes understanding. That’s peace when it doesn’t make sense.

He later tweeted a message seeking flood-relief donations to his church.

Our hearts break as we see the damage and destruction in our city.
