A video of a Christian pastor and singers singing a Christian song, “30,000 feet in the air,” isn’t only making rounds online but has sparked a heated debate about the nature of worship. It’s unknown if the flight was a commercial, if everyone was traveling was of the same religious group, or perhaps if permission was asked of others beforehand.
The airline, in which a man was spotted playing the guitar, was believed to be going to Germany.
And so far, some people on board seem not to be impressed by the impromptu inflight act. In particular, comments online have since pointed out one man’s reaction, saying he appeared furious as he looked directly into the camera in the short clip which pans over the cabin. “Poor guy in the green and blue plaid shirt. Figuratively, I am him. He is me.”
According to Daily Dot, Mr. Jensz [picuted with his wife], who appears to be the pastor, describes himself as the founder of the religious organization Kingdom Realm Ministries, based in Philadelphia in the United States.
Jensz’s social media opines he spent part of the past week in Germany and across Europe, where his flight might have been headed. He and his wife had also posted about working along the Ukrainian border over the past few weeks. While the now-viral video was shared a week ago, it has sparked a social media debate as some argued the act was pushing beliefs on people.
A few suggested Jewish or Muslim people would have gotten major backlash if they were to do the same.
Ilhan Omar, the US representative for Minnesota’s 5th congressional district, who is Muslim, has since reacted to the clip.
However, Mr. Jensz was again slammed for posting another video on TikTok, where he and his wife Lily encouraged people on a train to become religious. They had said: “When you invite Jesus in your life, not only do you get eternal life, but you also get a peace. With God, it doesn’t mean bad things won’t happen but it means that we don’t have to be influenced in our hearts.”
