As Houston recovers from Hurricane Harvey, a new controversy brews amidst the storm waters.

Megachurch pastor Joel Osteen is under fire for allegedly rejecting victims and closing the doors of his Lakewood church to victims. Osteen tweeted Saturday that he and his family are praying for the victims affected by 30 inches of rainfall and catastrophic storm damage.  

Critics wanted more than prayers. 

But the church claims that there was substantial flooding near, around and inside the vicinity.

"We have never closed our doors. We will continue to be a distribution center for those in need," the statement reads.

The statement adds: "Lakewood will be a value to the community in the aftermath of this storm in helping our fellow citizens rebuild their lives."

However, Twitter refuted those claims with more photos.

So, what is the truth? 

As of Tuesday, August 29, it has been reported that Osteen and his church have finally opened their doors to the masses.
