HOUSTON, TX—According to sources from within Lakewood Church, the largest congregation in the country, a church staffer was seen adjusting the numbers on the church’s “Days Without A Reference To Jesus” sign after the church’s 11:00 a.m. service Sunday.
The sign, proudly displayed in Lakewood Church’s massive foyer adjacent to its Jeremiah 29:11 mural, was updated from 332 days to 333 Sunday afternoon as Pastor Joel Osteen’s sermon went off without a hitch, and without a single reference to the Savior. Likewise, no mention of the name was uttered within the large ministry building.
“Great work, team! Let’s keep this streak alive!” one of Osteen’s assistants reportedly beamed as the sign was updated.
One Lakewood Church source claims the figure is a new record for Pastor Joel and the Lakewood staff, continuing their impressive streak after shattering their old record last month of 297 days without once mentioning Jesus Christ or the forgiveness from sins that He offers through His sacrifice on the cross within the walls of the church building.
