Most of the gospel artists of today are performing at gay affirming churches and God is not pleased. If these gospel music artists do not prefer righteousness and oppose God's Word, just so that they can continue to sell more tickets at their concerts and keep fans, then-there is no reason we should continue to listen to their music. Tell us, if they oppose God's Word, then why should they sing His songs? What do they have to sing about, if they choose money and favorable recognition instead of righteousness?
Furthermore, we have no business supporting ministries like Bishop Eddie Long's church, New Birth who invite these gospel artists to perform at their conferences. True children of God, God is not pleased and if judgment should come upon these specific gospel artists, do not be surprised, because when they had a chance to do right and properly represent the Kingdom of God, they chose fame and fortune instead. Even if we have gospel artists who refuse to say anything about this controversy involving same sex marriage, which is supported by President Barack Obama, they will be in trouble with the Lord, for He told us in His Word, homosexuality is a sin and it is an abomination. No gospel artists of this era should remain silent, but they should speak out, so those who support their music will know where they stand on this issue.
We already assume Karen Clark Sheard is for same sex marriage, since we learned last year she did not appear with Pastors Deitrick Haddon and his wife, First Lady Damita Haddon at National Organization for Marriage and also, allegedly her daughter Kierra "KiKi' Sheard performs at gay clubs. Now folks, these are COGIC affiliates who backed out of the NOM rally, the very organization that preaches against being unholy and separating from the world.
First Lady Karen Clark Sheard backed out of the National Organization for Marriage last year and since then, she has said nothing to the press about her decision. Does she stand up for righteousness or choose to remain silent on the issue for fame and fortune, instead? It does not matter to God that her daughter, Kierra "Ki Ki" Sheard allegedly performs at gay clubs, He expects for her to now choose to support NOM or admit that she is for same sex marriage, because it has been some time since she backed out of attending that rally. Since she is married to a man, it would make sense for her to do what is right in the eyes of the Lord, only supporting marriage between one man and one woman. Making her choice heard in respect for the Kingdom of God, which opposes homosexuality. Also, she should stand up as a woman of God who ministers through song, not as an entertainer who is equal to her daughter, but one who shows a better example as a minister in song and a first lady of a holiness bishop.
Perhaps, this reveals to us Sheard's weakness, she is more of a follower and not a leader, preferring to be like the other gospel artists who would rather make money from the gay and lesbian community instead of following Jesus Christ.
We suppose Pastors Deitrick and Damita Haddon realize too many souls are at stake and this is why they do not mind being different, by standing up for righteous. We assume they choose to honor and respect the God's Word that does not condone homosexuality and therefore; he expects these gospel artists who claim to love God in their song to choose to be a supporter of NOM, an organization that rallies against same sex marriage instead of performing at gay churches, gay clubs and even gay rallies. God is not pleased with the gospel music industry and it is a shame that Detrick and his wife, First Lady Damita Haddon are among the very few who has joined the National Organization for Marriage to oppose same sex marriage. We say, if there are more gospel artists who choose to be followers of this evil world and not followers of Jesus Christ, then, they do not deserve our money or attention, but they should get what they deserve and that is, only fame and fortune from a rebellious people who are not in agreement with these following scriptures:
- 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."
- Leviticus 18:22 - "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable."
- Leviticus 20:13 - "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads."
- Romans 1:26-27 - "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion."
True men and women of God, start supporting the National Organization for Marriage, immediately.
