Pastor John Gray Sings "Thriller" By Michael Jackson With A Christian Twist At The House Of Hope!


Reader Real John Gray preached today in the pulpit of The House of Hope Atl,  in front of  hundreds, if not thousands.  Why in the middle of the sermon, without warning, he turns—and launches into a full-body rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” “His name is Jesuuus, Jesus Christ,” he belts to the tune of the iconic song. “Bled and died and rose just to give eternal life.”  According to those in attendance WHAT a great message with a lot of comedy. The clip below is from his Thriller at Lakewood Church which is similar to the one he did at HOHALT, today.  What do you think?'

  1. It was funny and cute with a great message. However, he does have to be mindful of those in the audience which takes the things of God seriously.

  2. The very first line of thriller says "It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking In the dark.

    Is it ok for me to take any secular song and change the lyrics and call is acceptable worship to God? Wouldn't the very nature and theme of the song thriller be an unclean song? Doesn't the Word say in 2 Corinthians 6:17 Therefore, "Come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you."

    Why would I even want to touch this song and attempt to scrub it of all its filth and then say "Here ya go God, a clean version of the song Thriller written just for you and for people who need to be saved.

    Go somewhere and sit down sir!!!!

  4. I somewhat agree with Christian Pentecostal, even though most of the music in the Pentecostal church is highly rhythmic that they use to put many in an altered state of consciousness, leaving many open to suggestions. This is scary, at least in mu mind.

    But as for this dude singing "Thriller" with some Jesus in the lyrics, I've concluded, it's just no stopping this type music in a lot of these black churches. The theology of music is, it doesn't matter the tune or the beat, as long as the lyrics has Jesus in them. This approach is not biblical at all. The Bible is clear we should sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs who would say the sacred songs of the past were borrowed from bar tunes, so there is no real biblical guidelines for doing music biblical. They make the claim Martin Luther and the Wesleys used tavern music. It is important to note however, Luther was extremely conscious of the dangers of using the world’s music and he rarely borrowed from secular music. When he did (not bar tunes though), He’d change it to remove all worldly influences. Luther carefully changed the music to fit the Christian message. Of his 37 chorales, only one came directly from a secular song, and it was later replaced by a new tune he had written himself. “By avoiding dance tunes and ‘de-rhythming’ other songs. And when Luther wanted to write spiritual songs that were pleasing to young people, he was careful to wean them away from fleshly music.

    And as for the Wesleys, they did make use of secular music as hymn tune, BUT VERY VERY rarely. And when they did, the music always was from sources of recognizable beauty and excellence. In every case where they use of secular music for their hymns, it was always of the highest caliber, never a little ditty, jingle or disposable contemporary pop tune of the day that would be cast aside as soon as the next one was penned.

    1. Sorry but it’s your very type of thinking that keep Christianity from expanding, that holds it back! I showed a few friends of mine who aren’t Christians and they loved it and one actually said to me “I didn’t realise that Christian preachers could be so cool!” Which struck a cord because so many are held back from coming to know the Lord because we as Christians are refusing to adapt and find new and modern ways to speak to the world.
      I mean seriously your attitude is what turns people off, now I’m not saying we abandon all the teachings and just change in ANY way just to get them to come to church in fact that’s the very thing that has affected and destroyed so many churches that have become too accepting of anything and everything.
      It’s a very fine line because we want people of all backgrounds to attend, we want gay people to come to church and be made welcome and be saved but at same time we must ensure that we are clear that we believe that we do not agree with that lifestyle. The same can be said of any people from either dubious backgrounds or current situations. It’s such a fine line but we MUST NOT become a church that quotes scripture like a law book at people, whether to those we go out to find and save and to our own members.
      That doesn’t mean we are saying no forget the bible we will go our own way about things cos that will never work.
      Does this sound confusing? Is my point difficult to understand?

      YES it is - that is the life of a Christian, but I propose this - think on this way of thinking and try it out — If Jesus walked the earth in these times now, where would he be? What would he do?

      I tell you now he MOST DEFINITELY would NOT be sat with the “top leaders” of Christianity

      He would not be staying with and dining etc with the Arch Bishop of Canterbury ! (I’m British by the way hence the reference / the Arch Bishop is the highest leader in the Church of England - which birthed modern day Christianity and gave way for different denominations aside from Catholicism. It is also the biggest and most recognised Church in this Country, one of which I’m not part of by the way i am from a Pentecostal Church. And in fact the Church of England is a prime example of what happens when you don’t tread the fine line carefully - they constantly go back and change church principles so as to not be forced to answer the hard questions and challenges thrown at it by unbelievers - example - the Arch Bishop currently is homosexual..... so this is why I’m not just disagreeing with you lightly)

      Anyway he wouldn’t be sat with the Pope (for many other obvious reasons too lol)

      No he would, I believe, be on the streets with the addicts, prostitutes etc he would dine with the reviled etc

      He would not judge the people in sin, he would find ways in this modern time to connect with them - and im sure there would be many people like yourself disagreeing with his ways! Throwing verses at him, yet really he is fundamentally honouring the laws of God yet at the same time being able to connect with people in ways they can relate to. Lots of people back then disagreed with his methods - methods that if bought and adapted into modern culture would look like this - ok maybe not Jesus singing MJ thriller!! Lmao but still

      This was long message and you may disagree and you are perfectly welcome to but really this guy did not sing this out of disrespect he found a way to connect with a lot of people I’m sure and many others who aren’t saved may have just taken notice to this, when normally if any other regular song was sung they probably would have just phased out, turned the channel, stopped watching but no now I’m sure many would have looked st it and thought like my friend did

      Now surely even if there was only a Handful of people that did this, I’m sure God would be happy to welcome into his kingdom if it aided in their path to become saved, considering it’s not like it was s huge deal anyway. So yeah anyway
      Lol good song lool
