    Then they should check their facts. Five percent of the population in England is Muslim (please note the correct spelling). I would not call that 'overflowing'. I regularly pray that Christians in England would pay even half the devotion to their faith that many Muslims apply to theirs.

    Since you say (in relatively small type, compared to the font in the meme), "In an alternate timeline," should we assume that this is a fictional "quote" that Osteen never actually said or wrote? I just want to be clear in my understanding.

    Not sure I can get my tongue around that word, "enhypostatized"!! :laugh:

    The trouble with the written language is that it is always very difficult to identify a sarcastic/humourous tone! If you are genuinely asking, Osteen never actually said or wrote that, I imagine it's a quote from some great church father or something along those lines. Can you imagine him saying that to his millions of listeners instead of the usual televangelist stuff! Hilarious.

    Enhypostatization, to make one dilly of a noun out of it, is a very abstract Byzantine theological-Christological concept that relates the theology of Palamism (specifically the essence/energies division, the rejection of the Latin idea of created grace, and so on), to Chalcedonian hypostatic union Christology.

    The joke is that Osteen is today's probably #1 light-weight heterodox pop preacher, and in his mouth is put the most obscure abstract trivia of medieval Byzantine theology.

    Oh, ok, thanks for 'dumbing it down' enough so I could get it. :thumbsup: I was really scratching my head over that one! I guess the joke was too Byzantine for me! :D
