Taking to Instagram after a woman with whom he reportedly had an “emotional affair” released embarrassing audio tapes of the two of them speaking, a former associate of Houston megachurch pastor Joel Osteen defended himself and blamed the devil for his predicament.

According to Ebony, Pastor John Gray of the Relentless Church in South Carolina urged his followers to believe him and not their ears, writing, “The last three months have been the hardest of my life. So many things said about me. Some of it true. Most of it not.”

According to the pastor, who was sent off into the world by Osteen to build his own flock, “I didn’t sleep with anyone. Period. God is my witness. And anyone who I’m accountable to will tell you that when I’m wrong-and I’ve been wrong many times-I’ve admitted, repented and moved forward.”

Gray then complained that he is a target and those coming after him are after “blood.”

“People wanted blood. And on the spiritual side the devil wanted to mute me. That will never happen,” he professed. “If I never knew the power of The Blood, I do now. And I’ll always preach Jesus Christ as the power of God to eradicate the penalty of sin for those who choose to fall at the foot of the Cross.”

In one of the audio tapes the woman, whose name was kept anonymous, is told by a man identified as Gray, ““When you get this message, delete it. My wife saw our text messages from Friday. She knows you were in the same hotel as me and she does not know that I went to your room. She doesn’t remember me leaving. She’s got your number.”

It is no secret President Donald Trump loves to bask in MAGA glory at his rallies, but a new survey shows his campaign blitz may be backfiring as voters wonder if the president bears responsibility for hosting potential super-spreader events while COVID-19 batters the Midwestern United States.

A new survey, compiled of voters in six battleground states—Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin—found that a great number of voters view Trump "much less" or "somewhat less favorably" due to his continued behavior amid the coronavirus pandemic, reports US News. Despite alarming upticks in cases across the Midwest, Trump has continued to visit vulnerable states and hold massive rallies all while disregarding COVID-19 mitigation practices.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe shreds Jared Kushner for bragging about Trump’s COVID-19 disaster

Published

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough blasted Jared Kushner for bragging about actions that resulted in tens of thousands of deaths from the coronavirus.

President Donald Trump's son-in-law and White House adviser told reporter Bob Woodward the president had wrested control of the pandemic response away from the doctors, and the "Morning Joe" host said that admission was damning.

"We actually have the 'Perry Mason' moment," Scarborough said. "We actually have the person on the witness stand who is actually testifying against interests for himself and for Donald Trump. They deliberately, deliberately 'freed' America from the doctors and the scientists, so by the end of this, 400,000 people will be dead. Almost as many Americans who died in World War II."
