You can believe everything on the Internet, right? Wrong. Just ask Lakewood Church pastor Joel Osteen. A recent posting on a fake website, made up to look like the Lakewood Church site, announced that Osteen had resigned from the church due to his “lack of faith.”
According to the Houston Chronicle, the site also included fake news reports from major sources like CNN, Yahoo and the Christian Broadcasting Network, complete with a fake YouTube video and Twitter page.
A Lakewood Church representative says the church is aware of the hoax and false rumor.
You can see the fake video below.
