King of Pop towered over his critics

  • Follow Letters

This letter is to all the self-righteous critics who revel in the shortcomings of the late, great Michael Jackson.

Michael was the host for those parasites to feed from. He was the strong man in the arena. Critics were the obnoxious, belligerent spectators. It was men such as Michael Jackson that gave those big-mouth spectators something to talk about. Michael was a doer. Critics were just talkers. Well done is better than well said. Even at his lowest moments Michael Jackson still towered over those critics.

President Theodore Roosevelt summed up the fault-finding critic by saying, "It is not the critic that counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

"The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who errs, and who comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of great achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory or defeat." ...

Kevin Palmer, Martinez

MJ said himself that he slept

MJ said himself that he slept with young boys and called it "sweet". Responsible adults don't do that. One of the many reasons why responsible adults don't do that is because they wouldn't want children to think that was normal and acceptable. He was a selfish [filtered word]who only thought about himself. And while many people thought he was the King of Pop, he could never hold a candle to Smokey Robinson, who started performing before MJ was even born.

many royalties, etc. God came

many royalties, etc. God came as a thief in the night and the only thing that he wanted was their soul saved. That's the beginning of salvation and ETERNAL LIFE. Now those 84 million dollars of tickets that were "sold out", my suggestion for you is to 'sell out" to the only King and Godfather and that is Jesus Christ. Don't let the FINAL CURTAIN of your life catch you in wrong standing with God. Watch the videos and see the trillions of people lifting their hands and really worshipplng. who are they worshipping? Who actually loved Mr. McNair and his mistress to lead them to Christ? All we can do is serve and obey the Lord while we still have time. These comments are so rude and hurtful even to the dead. Man is an UNSAFE EXAMPLE SO FOLLOW JESUS. Jesus is soon to come. Please listen while he is yet speaking. Your appointment of death (and mine too) might be near. Will you be caught judging others or leading others to Christ? I suggest we read Romans 10:9,10 and Psalm 51 and repent while we still have time. WE ALL HAVE SINNED (AND STILL ARE) AND COME SHORT OF GOD GLORY.The only trime we should look down on a brother is when you are picking him up with your arms stretched wide.AMENAMEN

The first part of my message

The first part of my message did not go through. That is fine because there is always someone criticizing. It stated that Michael Jackson, (KING OF POP) James Brown,(Godfather of Soul), God is SOVERIGN and he will not give his glory or name to another. Those trillion of fans now will have to direct their attention to THE ONE AND ONLY LIVING GOD WHO ALONE CAN SAVE THEIR SOULS FROM HELL. Let's stop hating on and judging each other. Jesus is coming again SOON. Don't be caught treating your brother or sister wrong and judging them. Michael, James, Earrah, Ed, etc. and the rest of the dead billionaires now have their ETERNAL LIFE. Their ETERNAL LIFE is wherever they chose it to be. Only God knows. Jesus is coming QUICK AND IN A HURRY. Be ready. Don't be caught criticizing each other. Let's walk in Love. As long as I have been posting, I have never criticized anyone but tried to show Love. Jesus loved his enemies so why can't we? Peace, joy, love, and happiness in the holy ghost to all of you. Repent and live holy. Holiness without, no man shall see the Lord. Be blessed!!!

Always remember that Michael

Always remember that Michael Jackson and James Brown had pure hearts. I do believe. Only the pure in heart shall see God. When you are dead, would you like your name blashphemed all over the place? Let God do the judging. From reading some of these postings, we yet have a long way to go. I pray that God does not return for our souls and find us in this messed-up state. No matter what, I love all of you unconditiionally and there is nothing that you can do or say about it. Let each man be persuaded by his own opinions. PEACE AND LOVE TO ALL!

Out of the heart the mouth

Out of the heart the mouth speaks. Did he speak of Jesus. What comes out of our mouth tells all the world what is in our heart.
