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."

Welll, well, well... at least there's some TROOT coming out Dr. Murray! publicty stunt, not SURPRISED but glad they couldn't buy Olsteen. Okay will reconsider Olsteen again, although hopefully this can be used somehow in the trial showing how the good ol' Doc used any tactic to look remorseful, remorseful he didn't get paid probably prayed to get some money.

HumanNature Heeyyyyy!!



Getting kinda desperate are you Murray? Guess going to your own church would not have helped enough. Not enough exposure there so you have to pick the largest church in Texas to get media coverage.




There will be no plea deal HN. DA has already commented on this. We don't want no darn plea deal anyhoo. This man needs to serve the maximum sentence for his crime.

Oh so first he was personally invited and now he went on his own free will. If so, then why did you and your PR people make it news worthy? Why not just go and seek Gods help without having it put in the news? Come on, tell the troot, it was a PR stunt wasn't it.

Naturally Conrad would agree to go along with the Osteen camp change of story.....and say that it was his own free will (which of course it was also)..
Conrad knows what it's like to live in fear for his life because of Michael Jackson followers. He would not wish his own situation to also infiltrate and involve or jeopardize Joel Osteens life and security.
Conrad Murray is just that kind of person. Joel Osteen knows that.
And they both are well aware of what evils lurk in this world and are smart and aware enough to heed the warning signs.
After all who in their right mind could miss or ignore them.

So you are say that a man of God who preaches to thousands of people to put their trust in the Lord will lie to avoid bad press or angered fans?
