Pastor John Gray is one of the Black pastors who embarrassed himself by participating in a bizarre photo-op with  President Donald Trump. Gray idly sat by while Obama was insulted and Trump was called the “most pro-Black president,” which has resulted in backlash. A week later, Gray, who led 45 people in prayer at the “press conference,” is now comparing his meeting with Trump to a meeting with Jesus.

Pastor Keith McQueen, the founder of Powerhouse Church in Indianapolis, responded to another pastor defending Gray, claiming that people hated the megachurch owner.

“We don’t hate @realjohngray We love him,” McQueen wrote on his Instagram. “However we can’t respect his decision to condone the behavior of an egotistical, misogynistic, narcissistic clown that has turned our country into a circus with his quarrelsome and divisive rants. He has affirmed the behavior of this man by sitting at the table to ‘discuss’ prison reform and urban revitalization with a man that has never cared for urban populations and incites hatred towards minorities that are targeted and often locked up unjustly.”

He continued: “We disagree with him on the behalf of young black men, women, Mexican #immigrants and their children #lgbt people and citizens that prefer a government that isn’t illegally influenced by Russian leaders.”

Dear @travisgreenetv we don’t hate @realjohngray We love him. However we can’t respect his decision to condone the behavior of an egotistical, misogynistic, narcissistic clown that has turned our country into a circus with his quarrelsome and divisive rants. He has affirmed the behavior of this man by sitting at the table to “discuss” prison reform and urban revitalization with a man that has never cared for urban populations and incites hatred towards minorities that are targeted and often locked up unjustly. We disagree with him on the behalf of young black men, women, Mexican #immigrants and their children #lgbt people and citizens that prefer a government that isn’t illegally influenced by Russian leaders. The Bible declares in the 1st Psalm to not sit in the seat of the scornful. The Bible declares in Proverbs 14:7 to flee from the company of fools. He took the influence given to him by God and affirmed by his following and sat it in the lap of @realdonaldtrump We don’t hate him. Hatred is the essence of #45 not the Church. The same Holy Spirit that he claims told him to attend should have opened up his mouth in the same essence that the Holy Spirit spoke through John the Baptist to Herod!

Well, Pastor John Gray decided to respond, actually comparing his meeting with Trump to Jesus.

“Sitting at a table is neither affirming, endorsing, agreeing or aligning. If so, Jesus certainly couldn’t have sat with zaccheus or been in the company of lepers. High Priests couldn’t go near lepers,” he commented under the post. “Jesus made clear that He came eating and drinking and was a friend to sinners, tax collectors and wine bibbers. Was he aligning or affirming their behavior? Of course not. And an initial conversation doesn’t portend for what could be produced in the future. I could never presume to know your calling or assignment since we don’t know each other.”

The OWN reality star didn’t stop there.

“But scripture does outline for us what believers should do if they have a disagreement. It starts with a one on one. Then get two or three witnesses and then take it before the church. None of that happened before you posted about a fellow believer who had everything to lose and nothing to gain by being obedient to the God who sent me. That I didn’t voice the accumulated pain of 400 years of REAL BROKENNESS in our black and brown communities is something I wish I could do.

Some moments call for a level of wisdom that my emotions would rather do away with. ‘Come, let us reason together’….perhaps next time try to reach out to me first and dialogue before utilizing your platform to hit your brother in Christ. I don’t mind people who don’t believe what I believe saying whatever they want. What I wasn’t prepared for was friendly fire.”

So Gray is taking no responsibility for showing up to meet with a president who has refused to meet with the NAACP and Reverend Al Sharpton? t’s all God’s fault that he made a fool out of himself on national television? Furthermore, to compare his meeting with Trump to Jesus is pure blasphemy.

McQueen apparently thought so, too.

“The difference between Jesus and you sitting with @realdonaldtrump is that Jesus sat with the oppressed and not the oppressor,” he wrote. “Jesus confronted the political figures of his day. The process of addressing disagreements between leaders is a process between believers and not preachers to politicians. The book of Jude speaks of those that are divisive and full of dissent and says HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM.”

In case you missed the round table with “20 inner city pastors and faith leaders,” see Gray’s prayer with Trump below:

    What a IDOT!!! I know you cannot compare a photo op with a compulsive liar to a meeting with Jesus.
    HAS JESUS EVER LIED TO YOU?

  2. Fat ass sellout Trump used You and the other Toms for an photo op pretending he’s going to do something. He has no intentions of doing anything for prison reform. You all should’ve learned from the Black HBCU Presidents meeting two years ago. Trump wanted y’all black MF to kiss his stank ass and you did Stupid black MF ‘s you got used.

    Hmmm, wondering what Oprah has to say
    about Pastor Gray not only meeting with
    #45 and referring to #45 as a meeting
    with Jesus whom Oprah relies on? We’re
    waiting to hear from you Oprah. We know
    how loyal you are to your friends. Is
    there a disparaging word?

    This is why the Bible said Trust No Man. Jesus did sit and speak with those people BUT he also CALEED them OUT for who they are and what they were. Every last one of them even his two disciples Juda, Peter, the woman at the well, the Pharisees and Sadducees ext. Every last ONE OF THEM. How can you compare a man to Jesus. This is Wrong on All kinds of levels. The Church need A Soul Searching Revival. This is Really Sad and All this Confusion, Lies and Attacks on people and the children in cages come on! Trump constantly doing and you compare him to sitting down with Jesus. The Greatest LOVE story ever written…Shame on You!

    Amen Keith McQueen, First that title from BAW is very misleading, but Jesus’ visit with the OPPRESSED wasn’t to gain anything from them. He sat with them to show them way to salvation. HE went to them to teach them God’s word. And “Jesus confronted the political figures of his day,” HE did not condone the behavior of those figures

    I’ve been to his church in SC and I listen to him but like the other comments I don’t believe he should had compare that racist pig to Jesus; our father in heaven came in peace to change people heart and bring them closer to God. There’s no way Donald Trump represent peace, love and understanding he is the anti Christ so instead of sitting with him and talking about reform let us reform what the real meaning of faith is it’s not your money, or how much you have or who you sit with it; it’s putting and giving all to God to work it out

    @RealJohnGray Pastor with all due respect (I guess). Are you Freakin Kidding me. Foremost the comparison to Jesus! Is your middle name Judas? Second you don’t see the hate, the crime the lies pedophilia He’s NOTHING LIKE JESUS. U SHOULD BE ASHAMED!!!!

  9. Passing Through!! on said:

    Basically John Gray is just like any other pulpit pimping preacher he couldn’t resist the temptation to go to the white house because he’s looking at what’s in it for him and his church financially. Then he tries to explain his pimping through the use and abuse of scripture and bible literature, typical religious hypocrite, but blame the black sheep who will continue to follow this fraud.
