HOUSTON, TEXAS - Pastor of Lakewood Church Joel Osteen has revised his "This is My Bible" poem after seriously considering what it said. "I was reading over the poem and realized, I don't believe this. My congregation doesn't believe this. So I decided to revise it", Joel Osteen said.
It was Joel's custom that before he would preach, he would hold up a Bible, recite the poem with the church, than put the Bible back down and start the therapy session. "Next Sunday, I will be sharing the revised version of the poem with the church. I believe it is more reflective of who we are and what we believe."
Joel was kind enough to give a copy of the revised poem to The Holy Wit. Here is what it said.
"This is my Bible. I am not what it says I am. I can do what it says I cannot do. Today, I will be taught. I boldly confess: My mind is alert, My heart is receptive, my ears are ticklish. I will be the same. I am about to receive The incorruptible, indestructible, Ever-living seed of positive and wishful thinking. I will be the same. Always, always, always. I will always be the same. In Jesus name. Amen."
Joel plans on releasing an amplified version of the poem later this year along with a commentary and 12 week study course explaining what it means.
