People sing Christian music on the plane, sparking debate

A video of a group of people singing Christian music on a plane has gone viral and sparked considerable debate on social media.

According to TMZ, the video comes from a Facebook post by Jack Jensz Jr., who appears to be a pastor. Jensz is one of the founders of Kingdom Realm Ministries.

While the original post has since been deleted, numerous reposts are flooding the web. A repost by Twitter user @davenewworld_2 currently has over 18.6 million views.

In the video, two people can be seen in the aisles of an EasyJet flight singing Christian songs. Other people seated can be seen singing.

It’s unclear when this video was taken, but Jack Jensz Jr. posted the same video to his Instagram page on April 9.

“#Jesus takes control of this flight,” he wrote in the caption of the video. Comments for this post have been disabled.

TMZ reports that Jensz Jr. and Kingdom Realm Ministries appear to have traveled across Europe to support refugees leaving Ukraine.

This is verified in several Instagram posts by Jack’s wife, Lilly.

In one post, Lilly and Jack can be seen handling a large amount of groceries, which they say they collect for refugees in eastern Ukraine.

“Church, thanks to your generosity, we were able to provide a van full of medicine, food and hygiene products to two pastors who welcome refugees to their towns in eastern Ukraine as well as help their congregation and their city because the products are impossible to obtain now. in their region,” she wrote in the caption. “They were overwhelmed by your generosity!”

“We continue to pray for Ukraine and do what we can to help,” she concludes.

However, it also appears that the band’s in-flight singing may not have been a one-time event.

Preaching on transportation is a theme for the group. In another Instagram post, Jack says a family “made the decision to follow Jesus while preaching the gospel on the train!”

The couple also posted a video of one of their gospels in train.

“During one of the Quirk calls, the Lord completely healed a woman of her stomach and back pain,” Jack claims in the video’s caption.

While the charity of Jack and the Kingdom Realm Ministries is appreciated, their method of spreading the gospel has sparked debate on social media.

“As a person of faith, I beg you: don’t do this,” one Twitter user wrote. @kimlockhartga. “St. Francis of Assisi said it best: preach the gospel every day, and only if you have to, use words. That kind of thing discourages people, and rightly so.

“They did this knowing it would annoy people,” the user said. @Cessecce. “If nobody complained, they would tell their young followers ‘people love it when you stand up for God’, and if it went wrong they would say ‘look how much people hate Christianity, we have to stand up for God’.”

Others speculated that if a Muslim had done something similar, the passengers would not have stood idly by.

One of the people who have speculated about this is Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar. She reposted the video to her account with the caption, “I think my family and I should have a prayer session next time I’m on a plane. How do you think this will end?

However, some Christians claimed they would be okay with such a performance.

As a Twitter user @OnthaileM_99 wrote: “I find nothing wrong with this video. On the contrary, I have a huge respect for people who play and sing. ‘Preach the gospel to all the world.’”

Jack Jensz Jr. did not immediately respond to Daily Dot’s request for comment via Instagram DM.
