Update: Gospel Music Artist Michael Winans Jr. charged with Ponzi scheme

RGA readers, we do not know if you recall the previous story about Michael Winans Jr. Ponzi scheme,  a few years ago.  Now we are bringing you an update to inform you he has now been charged. You can see that previous report at  To our knowledge, his father, Michael Winans, Sr. was also being allegedly investigated a few years ago and we have no update on his charge.  However, we wanted to share our thoughts, regarding the Winans family.

Sisters and brothers in Christ, since the 1980's this family has allegedly took the substance out of God's music, real gospel music.   He has not been pleased with their carnality.   If you recall the previous documentary of Bebe and CeCe, their parents, Mom and Pop Winans were originally not in favor with their type of music.   Remember, the old cliche, 'money talks.'    Eventually, after they became a success, we could imagine all of the things they could do after contracts were sign by mainstream record companies and their producers.   When you are able to live better than usual and not struggling to make ends meet, regulations according to God's Word began to cease.  Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy (I Peter 1:16).   Also in I John 2:15, God's Word reminds us, '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.' As you know, this happened with many other gospel music artists, they changed for their record companies, instead of remaining the same for Jesus Christ.   Now, we want to let you know these alleged charges of Michael Winans, Jr. running a Ponzi Scheme does not surprise us, because after this longtime rebellion among some Winans family members refusing to present God's music with complete holiness for so long, no telling what they may give into.

When Michael Winans, Jr. got caught in this Ponzi scheme, it was around when we started in this national recession.   Therefore, if everyone else in this country was feeling the economic strain, then possibly so was the entire Winans family.  As we all know, this recession has been so bad, many celebrity music artists, even secular ones have also financially suffered, but it does not make it right for any of them to get caught up in an illegal scheme.   Now, we are aware,
not all of the Winans family members have been involved in this Ponzi scheme.   However, God is not pleased and if any of them were having financial hardships, there is nothing wrong with any of them being seen working behind the counter at McDonald's or sweeping the floor at Burger King or even being maid in the Governor's mansion.  Michael Winans could have done any of these things, if he was not making enough money like his aunts or uncles, who also may not be making enough income these days.

Most gospel artists of this era are always making mockery of traditional gospel music, but they fail to recognize back in the early 1980's, 70's and previous years, there were no reports of any family in the gospel music industry breaking the law and involving themselves in Ponzi schemes.  Now, why do you think that is?   Simply because, gospel artists in those days were more into God, they were more sincere and did not even mind having some real church during their gospel music concerts or even in church during their recording sessions.   Gospel artists back in the day, glorified God and were more holy and sanctified.   There should be a difference between church music and worldly music.   No telling, what else we may hear in the media like Kirk Franklin allegedly being addicted to porn, several years ago.   Gospel music artists of today are making music in the flesh and not in the spirit, do not be surprise what else the Devil may get them to do.
