Michael Jackson announces intention to convert to Islam   

ynetnews.com

American pop star Michael Jackson has officially announced that he has been following the five tenets of Islam and intends to convert to Islam, according to a report on the website of Arab-Israeli newspaper Panorama.

According to the report, Jackson’s announcement noted he is moving to Bahrain and has purchased some real-estate on an artificial island there. The singer said he decided to convert to Islam because he is convinced it is the closest religion to his personal beliefs.

Jackson also noted he intends to soon move all his assets and his studio from the U.S. to Bahrain, and expressed his hope to be rid of various legal troubles and enjoy the kind of freedom he says he does not have in America.

Notably, if the reports are correct Jackson would not be the first member of his family to make the move to Islam. His brother, Jermaine, who moved to the Gulf nation of Dubai, is also a convert.

According to the sources, Jermaine was the one to provide his famous brother with books about Islam and encouraged him to convert. The report says the pop star read the books and even added his comments on some pages.

Jackson was the center of recent controversy after it was reported that he referred to Jews as “leeches” in a phone message to a former business partner.

Referring to Jews, Jackson was heard saying that "they're like leeches…I'm so tired of it…They start out the most popular person in the world, make a lot of money, big house, cars and everything. End up penniless. It is a conspiracy. The Jews do it on purpose."


(Is he really speaking about Jews or it that a self portrait?)

Feeling guilty I'ld say. He's going the wrong direction to take care of that though.

I thought he had been living in Behrain for a good while already. At any rate, I read the other day that he's being sued for non-payment of a personal loan (HUGE loan, can't remember the dollar amount), in which he claims was a gift and didn't need repaying... he's in trouble (again) and grasping at anything to "escape". Yes, he's heading in the wrong direction and there's ONLY ONE who can help him turn him in the right direction...

Michael Jackson announces intention to convert to Islam  


As far as Michael Jackson becoming muslim, I think he needs to find Jesus.

Referring to Jews, Jackson was heard saying that "they're like leeches…I'm so tired of it…They start out the most popular person in the world, make a lot of money, big house, cars and everything. End up penniless. It is a conspiracy. The Jews do it on purpose."



He is sounding like Hitler, there has to be a scape-goat, and Micheal seems to think Jews are his scape-goat. Boy is he going to find out how wrong he is!!

His own mismanagement of his funds are his own fault, not the Jews.

Brothers and Sisters,

These last few posts made me think of several outstanding TESTIMONIES FOR CHRIST I've heard recently from famous people. I realize that young people many times try to mimic famous people and look up to them as role models, so it makes me happy when Strong Christians serve as good role models for our children. In fact, we should all try to serve as GODLY role models for our children whether we're rich and famous or not. It's amazing to find out what children see, hear, and try to mimic. As Christians, this is part of our LIVING TESTIMONY FOR CHRIST.

Bluntly, Michael Jackson and many other stars like him have hurt children in more ways than we know - LITERALLY!

There are many Christians who still achieve FAME, and I'm happy to know that most of them simply give it to the LORD! They use their fame to give a TESTIMONY FOR GOD, and they know how it hurts children when they do something wrong. It could be sports, politics, or you name it. YES - I said "politics". I've heard several wonderful testimonies for CHRIST from politicians over the last few weeks. They already know that it isn't very smart for most politicians to take a stand for CHRIST these days, but they do it regardless. SURPRISE! - Many voters still EXPECT a pleasing Testimony for CHRIST from the politicians they vote for.

NOW - back to the bad side of the coin. Most famous people are horrible examples for our children, and Christians need to know things like this before TURNING THE TELEVISION ON. As Christian Parents, we have a responsibility for our Children THAT GOD WILL HOLD US TO! SO, we need to take things like this seriously.

Love in Christ,
Tom

Galatians 5:22-25 NASB  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.
