When Gospel Music Artists Appeared On Soul Train, Why Couldn't They Win Don Cornelius to Jesus Christ?


We are sadden that another black celebrity has one into judgement, this time because of an alleged suicide.  Don Cornelius is respected among many rich and famous African American celebrities and has even included awards at the annual Soul Train Music Awards event for gospel music artists.   Many alleged gospel artists have performed at the ceremony: Mary Mary, Bebe and CeCe Winans, Kirk Franklin, Dorinda Clark Cole, (First Lady) Karen Clark and KiKi Sheard, Donnie McClurkin and many others.   We want you to know each and every last gospel artists is assigned to ministry and should not have mingled with the secular music industry to be like them as celebrities.   Now that Don Cornelius is gone, we wonder if any of them think about how they could have witnessed to him about salvation?   There should be some sort of remorse for performing on the Soul Train Music Awards and competing to win, instead of only aiming to win Don Cornelius to surrender his soul to Jesus Christ.  If they have, praise God for it, but we doubt it.


For many years, many gospel music artists have made the mistake of struggling to gain fame and fortune without focusing on using their music to gain souls for Jesus Christ.   During their spotlight at the Soul Train music awards and even on Soul Train's televised show, we cannot help but wonder did Don Cornelius recognized and admired any sort of holiness within the spirits of gospel artists as they performed.   Of course not, because how can those who proclaim salvation act just like those within darkness?  Many of these gospel artists will have to answer to God, if they do not repent for mingling with secular black music artists and desiring to be so much like them, they may not have even offered Jesus Christ to Don Cornelius.  There has been great danger for gospel artists desiring to be more like celebrities, instead of just ministering in song for God.   Many of them, have yielded to secular music promoters like Don Cornelius instead of showing the true light of Jesus Christ and that is, to simply separate from the world and perform outside of the Devil's territory.   However, since the have not shown any difference between themselves and worldly music performers, then how could they ever tell Don Cornelius about Jesus Christ?  There would be no way for them to do so, since many have not included the name, 'Jesus' in their gospel lyrics.


Don Cornelius may not have committed suicide if there was just one minister of music to offer salvation to him.  Unfortunately, many gospel artists do not see themselves as ministers, they see themselves only as performers who are just entertaining their fans, similar to hip hop music artists like Beyonce, Jay-z, Rihanna, Kanye West and many others.   One of the main reasons why they may have failed to so so, is because they want to make the same money and receive the same recognition as celebrities.   Dear readers, God is not pleased, every year many black celebrities mingle with gospel artists are there is no excuse for any of them not see a difference and be offered to know Jesus Christ as their personal savior.   While many gospel artists were making an effort to get on the Soul Train Music Awards over the years, Don Cornelius was struggling with depression, so much he could no longer cope.   Therefore, there should have been more witnessing and less of an effort for gospel artists to prove they can perform like secular artists and become just as famous, God is not pleased.

Over the years, the Winans family, BeBe and Ce Cee Winans seem to have allegedly made an effort to be seen with some of the biggest names among black celebrities, Glady's Knight (whom was a good friend and business partner with the late Ron Winans, Anita Baker (who was on a previous recording with 'The Winans', Whitney Houston (who sang on a previous album with BeBe and CeCe Winans) and Opray Winfrey who had mingled so much with the Winans family, she allegedly was at Pastor Marvin Winans church before Ron Winans passed away.   There is no fine line between those within the gospel music industry and secular industry.  Many of them are so allegedly focused on fame and fortune and their colloboration with secular entertainers, they have forgotten this following scripture in I John 2:15 that says: 'Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him (or her).'   


Now we hear Mary Mary allegedly has announced they want to collaborate their music with Beyonce.  You see they did not seem like they cared about how much their fans were allegedly upset with them for going to a concert, featuring Beyonce, they allegedly became greedy and want to go a step further.  Now in March, you will even see them on their own reality show.  


Do you see what we are trying to reveal to you?   People like Don Cornelius should have never even though about suicide if gospel music artists were truly saved and revealed complete holiness and righteous.   They cannot say they feel no sort of remorse.  They should feel very bad, because their greed to make it big like secular music artists has taken the focus away from the purpose of gospel music and that purpose was never meant for any of these gospel artists to go on the Soul Train music awards to act like those whom are lost in the world of sin.  Don Cornelius may have made a way for gospel artists to be seen on his show, because of his network, but obviously he was so unhappy, he needed someone to pray and witness to him, not prove they are like he and those secular music artists he promoted over the years.   You see, the greatest mistake of the average gospel artists is they would rather be more accepted by worldly secular music artists and celebrities, than to be accepted by Jesus Christ and witness for him through their music while remaining holy as He instructed for all of us to be.  Gospel artists are always making an excuse for why they mingle and collaborate with secular music artists, claiming they are being like Jesus Christ.  Really?   Then, how could this great man, Don Cornelius go into judgement without knowing God loved him?  Obviously, he did not know because he killed himself and as you can see, his fame and fortune was not enough to make him happy.  Tell us, how can any of these gospel artists claim to know Jesus Christ, if they do not properly represent themselves or fail to witness to sinners whom happen to be black celebrities, the way He expects them to do?

In I Peter 1:16, it says this: 'Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.'
