Joel Osteen -- Dr. Murray Invited Himself

5/10/2010 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joel Osteen's people are ticked ... saying they didn't invite Dr. Conrad Murray to Osteen's service yesterday -- Dr. Murray invited himself.

Joel Osteen
According to sources connected with Dr. Murray ... TMZ first reported Osteen personally invited Dr. Murray and even gave him a secret code to enter Osteen's Houston church. 

But Osteen's rep tells TMZ they were approached by Dr. Murray's people who said the doctor was in need of prayer and Osteen agreed to pray with him. 

One of Osteen's reps griped to TMZ, "It seems like this was more of a PR move than seeking actual prayer."

UPDATE: A rep for Murray says the good doctor attended the service "at his own free will." Murray, in a statement to TMZ, said, "I was grateful for the blessings, prayer and words of encouragement I felt during services.  It was a spiritual moment for me, personally ... I sincerely express my thanks and gratitude and will continue to remain strong in my faith."

Murray is obviously getting really desperate. The sign of a guilty man. As for Joel...hopefully he'll be praying for some better dental work.

When you combine a hypocrite with an evil advocate you'll get what's called a stuck up Christian.



Justice for Michael.

Conny the Killer knows he's guilty and he's getting really desperate. Too late.... It's all a massive PR job on his part. Shame on this lying piece of s***.

The most common lie is the lie one tells to oneself, nevertheless, tricks and treachery are the practices of fools, they don’t have the brains enough to be honest!

Haven't decided which one is more "creepy" ! ! ! One of these persons took thousands of dollars from people to put them to sleep. And, . . . Dr. Murray is fairly scary, too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

wow, whatever the reason, seeking spiritual help is personal, the reason behind it is not up for us to interpret, that's Gods job. I wonder if osteen outs others that come to him. sorta what that pseudo religion ( scientology ) did to tom cruise. i mean God has the power to turn a bad thing into good. does osteen not practice the thing he preaches , be patient, wait on God

His lawyers do not help either. So full of making a public show. I so wish they were smart enough not to make this into a show.



Anyway, i questioned this from day one.....what was Ed Chernoff doing there with Murray? Doesn't that speak for itself? And that doesn't leave Osteen out of being a media-whore as well. Both of them are just looking for attention. But i have to say Murray's desperation is not helping him much. It makes him look so very guilty.
