    He seems to be a very very popular preacher these days. I heard him interviewed on the Today Show some time back. He , or his church, bought the Compaq Center in Houston for their church. He wears a perpetual smile and espouses a theology of things are going to get better for you. I was curious what his website (www.joelolsteen,com) was like so I logged on.

    Merciful Jesus, has it come to this. A "Christian" website with links to ringtones, applying for credit cards, buying cars, realestate.

    Forgive me, skeeter. Jesus wept.

    Would Jesus Wear A Rolex

    Woke up this mornin', turned on the t.v. set.
    there in livin' color, was somethin' I can't forget.
    This man was preachin' at me, yeah, layin' on the charm
    askin' me for twenty, with ten-thousand on his arm.
    He wore designer clothes, and a big smile on his face
    sellin' me salvation while they sang Amazin' Grace.
    Askin' me for money, when he had all the signs of wealth.
    I almost wrote a check out, yeah, then I asked myself

    (chorus)

    Would He wear a pinky ring, would He drive a fancy car?
    Would His wife wear furs and diamonds, would His dressin' room have a star?
    If He came back tomorrow, well there's somethin' I'd like to know
    Could ya tell me, Would Jesus wear a Rolex on His television show.

    Would Jesus be political if He came back to earth?
    Have His second home in Palm Springs, yeah, a try to hide His worth?
    Take money, from those poor folks, when He comes back again,
    and admit He's talked to all them preachers who say they been a talkin' to Him?

    (chorus)

    Just ask ya' self, Would He wear a pinky ring,
    Would He drive a fancy car?
    Would His wife wear furs and diamonds, would His dressing room have a star?
    If He came back tomorrow, well there's somethin' I'd like to know:
    Could ya tell me, would Jesus wear a Rolex,
    Would jesus wear a Rolex
    Would Jesus wear a Rolex
    On His television show-ooh-ooh?

    Actually, RevK, that site has nothing to do with your preacher. It's just a landing page that some traffic hungry webcorp set up, since they probably scooped the domain after an expiration. Every link goes through someting called "searchportal.com", and may have tried to install browser hijackers on anyone unlucky enough to start clicking links.

    This might be what you're after:
