Liturgyworks, Joel Osteen is totally off the reservation. He is not a good representative sample of the Word of Faith group; he has departed from orthodoxy. If that is who you're looking at, I can fully understand how you arrived at your assessment. But as one who has attended not just a church but a WoF Bible college, I can assure you that Joel is an outlier. Jesus' statement that "the gates of hell shall not prevail against" His church is not at all indicate a guarantee of that church's perfection. We all have reasons to think our personal choice of denomination is the best, but claiming perfection for any of them is, shall we say, a bit 'over the top.' One might ask which Orthodox Church is perfect, as there are several. If "having perfect theology" were a strict requirement for entry into heaven, not one single person would make the cut. Think about it.
