Queen Latifah Set To Headline Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride Festival: Gospel Artists Stop Associating with Queen Latifah and Other Secular Entertainers


As we all know, Kirk Franklin and other gospel artists starred in the recent movie, 'Joyful Noise' with Queen Latifah.   We have been forewarning gospel artists time and time again that God has scriptures against their association with those whom are not followers of Christ.  If you are a gospel artist, shouldn't you live your life as a righteous believer in Christ?   It is time for gospel artists to realize they are not entertainers and they are not to associate with unbelievers like Queen Latifah who is allegedly supposed to host this year’s annual Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride Festival on May 19, according to HuffingtonPost.com.   This is a wake up call for the gospel music industry to return to only associating with gospel artists whom are living holy and decent lifestyles.   Because of carnality among gospel artists whom have combined hip-hop and rock music with their gospel music, God seems to have taken away their anointing and so they are unable to understand how important it is for them not to have any association with secular artists like Queen Latifah.   

It does not matter how much money was offered to Kirk Franklin or any other gospel artist to star in the movie, 'Joyful Noise', no money is enough to save one's soul from hell.  The Bible says in Mark 8:36, it says: 'For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?'  Gospel artists have gotten so far away from being holy in their performances and associations, they do not even know how important it is to test every spirit, be holy and separate from worldly affairs.  In I Peter 1:16, it says this, 'Because it is written, You will be holy; for I am holy.'   How are these gospel artists truly saved if they associate with homosexuals?   God told His children to be holy.  Therefore, any gospel artists whom associates with gays, lesbians or transgender people are not holy neither is their music, although it maybe labeled as gospel music The downfall of the majority of the gospel music industry is that they think that just because they get an offer to appear in a movie with a popular movie star or entertainer, they feel it is a blessing from God or they feel they should associate with other African Americans regardless if they are living for Jesus Christ or not, simply because they are a rich and famous black person whom has paved the way in the entertainment industry.   However, gospel artists are not supposed to concerned with those issues, because it is no longer important of having pride of black people paving the way in Hollywood or the whole entire music and movie industry, the only relevance is that they make sure they are holy and they reach out and get souls for Christ and reaching souls for Christ is not associating with those whom support the gay, lesbian and transgender community. It does not matter how rich Queen Latifah maybe, how much money she has in her bank account or how popular she is among the black elite in Hollywood, she is supporting sin that God does not condone in His Word and gospel artists have no business associating with her.  They should only offer an invitation to cease sin and accept Jesus Christ as her personal Savior, nothing else.

There is a need for ministers whom are truly living holy lifestyles to encourage gospel artists to also follow this specific scripture and preach it in their churches for congregations to acknowledge how God feels about us associating with the world.  In  I John 2:15, it says: 'Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.'  No longer should preachers be concerned about losing members, popularity or how much money is going to be given in tithes and offerings, they are supposed to preach what is right.   Therefore, they should begin instructing their church members to no longer support gospel artists whom associate with secular music artists and entertainers like Queen Latifah.  Also, pastors and bishops should no longer allow gospel artists to perform at their churches if they associate with gays and lesbians, even if they star in a motion picture that may gain them a lot of fame and fortune.

One of the main reasons why gospel artists should distance themselves from mingling with Hollywood celebrities whom support gays and lesbians, is because God's Word does not condone homosexuality.   Look at this following scriptures that should be preached in every church and practiced in every Christian household: 
  • Leviticus 18:22 - "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable."
  • 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 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."
