A preacher has come out swinging against ‘Satan’s Shoes” – the red pair of Nike shoes made in collaboration with Gay Rapper Lil Nas X and MSCHF that is alleged to contain a drop of human blood – describing them as a “direct affront to believers,” but he may not be one to talk.
The pastor in question, John Gray, released an Instagram video where he explained:
They’re selling shoes with human blood in them. And they’re selling for a particular amount which coincides with a Scripture reference to Jesus saying ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning’ – a direct affront to believers, disrespect and dishonor to people of faith during resurrection week…
I defy the devil who’s trying to snatch a generation, and the silence of the church because of fear is not okay with me! I’m not okay with it…Nobody fears the church. They don’t respect us as a people.
Speaking of affronts to believers, Gray is a former associate pastor at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church. He left there and joined Relentless Church in South Carolina in 2018, moving into a $1.8 million
mansion “parsonage” paid for by said church. This is quite prescient, as ironically the only thing he has been “relentless” about is cheating on his wife while staying employed and wearing expensive clothing. That may have something to do with why “they don’t respect us.”
While Gray complains about a set of shoes being “an affront to believers,” a typical Sunday morning outfit from Gray may cost as much as years worth of rent for some of his congregation members, with Gray being a shining superstar on Preacherssneakers.
There is the $1145 sweater, the other $770 sweater, the $4005 shoes, the $9625 parka, the other $3721 pair of shoes, and then finally these bad boys
“Satan’s Shoes” may be blasphemous and offensive, but a bit of introspection about other acts of deviltry might go a long way.
