Carl Lentz, lead pastor of Hillsong Church in NYC, recently met with Jay-Z along with NBA star and Christian Kevin Durant and apparently defended the controversial rapper against Illuminati claims…while simultaneously taking shots at his Roc-A-Fella Records label?
Pastor Lentz shared this photo online recently, writing:
“Solid Monday.. Excited for @easymoneysniper and S. Carter and what lies ahead..We also called Santa Claus who texted the Easter Bunny who confirmed what we thought about the Illuminati. Those guys def know the truth. Waiting on a smurf to get back to me..#stopit #occupyallstreets #theROCKhasalwaysbeeninthebuilding #isaiah26:4″
“EasyMoneySniper” in this case is Kevin Durant, who was apparently baptized by Lentz at Hillsong NYC. Durant wrote his own message in a share of the photo:
“HGB’s (Hillsong Gangster Bloods) #LoveThyNeighbour”
But, back to Pastor Lentz, who apparently believes the Illuminati rumors that have been plaguing Jay-Z (and many other recording artists) for years are laughable and pure fantasy… like Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny.
He also referenced Isaiah 26:4 while using the hashtag “the ROCK has always been in the building.” The Bible passage reads:
“Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.”
Needless to say… the photos sparked debates over Jay-Z and the existence of the Illuminati on Durant’s account, while Lentz’s page was over-run with suggestions that he is a poser or being unbiblical by hanging out with Jay-Z.
