The last time Osteen spoke with Larry King was in 2005 on "Larry King Live," after which Pastor Osteen was accused by Christian viewers of suggesting that Jesus was not the only means of salvation.

"Well, yes. Well, I don't know if I look at it like that. I would present my way, but I'm just going to let God be the judge of that. I don't know. I don't know," Pastor Osteen told King during the 2005 interview when asked if it was "wrong" for others to believe differently than he does.

"I'll let God be the judge of who goes to heaven and hell," Osteen added. Read a transcript of the infamous 2005 interview at CNN.
