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."

Since when do you need assistants, reps, and press releases to go to church?



If he was sincere, he can find God anywhere- not just in a very public service.

I'm a Christian & Osteen should not be leading any church. He gives a distorted biblical message. He also is weak in the looks dept.

Conny is soooooo guilty and is clutching at any straws to try to save his sorry ass. This is nothing more than a publicity stunt and a very transparent one at that. The quack is finished, washed up and it's time to face the music. He's guilty of killing his patient.

Since when does looks have anything to do with being a Christian or a preacher? I have watched his show before and he is a good speaker. He makes it easier to under the bible by the way he tells stories to compare with.

47. To HumanNature:



We are ALL SINNERS which we inherit sin from Adam and Eve!!!!!
THAT MAY BE TRUE.



ONLY A GUILTY CONCISOUS WOULD SEEK PRAYER!!!!
THAT IS NOT TRUE.




There's nothing funny when we ALL stumble and seek out FORGIVENESS FROM GOD!!!!!
THAT DEPENDS ON ONE'S POINT OF VIEW.



PS: NUMBER OF EXCLAMATION POINTS AT THE END OF A SENTENCE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH VALIDITY OF THE STATEMENT ITSELF.



Have a nice day!

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




Justice for Michael.

That is such a lie about what you said! That is not true whatsoever! I am a Christian and you should know that we are human beings just as much as people tht dont believe in God! also everyone makes mistakes no matter if you are Christian or not...so get your facts straight before you judge



Justice for MJ! this guy is just doing this for a publicity stunt or maybe not...we dont knw...but all i knw is he needs to reap what he did...accident or on purpose..he needs to pay the consequences for his actions

He HAS to invite himself to places. Nobody will ever want to invite this killer to anything ever again. He's bad news and nobody wants his company. Would you want a killer in your company? What a loser. Time he realised and admitted his crime.

I've never heard the word "invitation" and "church" in the same sentence. Does one have to have an invitation to attend a service at this church? If so, that's very ****ed up. A house of worship should be open to everyone. At least that's what I was taught.
