Mary Mary's Tina Atkins-Campbell Forgives Her Husband After His Affair




We know usually we do not think of Mary Mary as anointed an anointed gospel artist duo, but this time we have something good to say.  We think Tina Atkins is being an example of a real woman of God by forgiving her husband, since this is something we cannot say about Deitrick Haddon, a man who was once married to a woman and stood against gay marriage with Damita.

You see, Tina and her husband, Teddy are showing an example of how marriage within the family of God should be.  Husbands and wives are supposed to forgive one another and work through it.  Neither one should ever get even, just because one cheated.  

We thought we would never say this, but we really admire Tina Atkins-Campbell of Mary Mary, because she is really showing how a really Christian spouse should behave, after her husband makes a mistake.  May God bless them both, including her sister.

Mary Mary's Tina Atkins-Campbell Says 'the Prayers of the Righteous' Helped Her Forgive Her Husband After His Affair

It is a wife's worst nightmare to be cheated on by the man she has committed her life to. While the dreaded infidelity issue pops up in lots of marriages, few know how to release hurt and repair...Read full article, here.

Gospel Artist, Kirk Franklin Criticizes the Prosperity Gospel


We are very shocked Kirk Franklin would have anything negative to say about the prosperity gospel.  Actually, we thought hip hop gospel artists and the prosperity gospel went hand and hand, you know rich preachers paying them to perform while banking millions.  We suppose Franklin could be one who does not agree with the prosperity gospel. 

 According to BlackChristianNews.com, multi award-winning gospel recording artist Kirk Franklin is apologizing after upsetting some citizens of the Republic of Uganda by classifying them as "poor" in a tweet--one he says was intended to convey his disapproval of the kind of Westernized theology that heavily focuses on prosperity preaching.  

We sincerely hope Kirk Franklin is going to be an example to the other gospel artists who are allegedly being highly paid by some of these rich and famous preachers.

Eddie Levert Admits Gospel Artists are Competitive During Performances


It certainly takes a person who sings secular music to admit the realities within the gospel music industry.  On a recent interview with Eddie Levert, Roland Martin asks him if they are beefs between gospel groups, in so many words.  He responded, 'they're the worst ones,' and we agree with him. One of our journalists recalls growing up in the black church and whenever their was a solo or someone leading a song in the choir, someone would take the microphone and try to outdo the other person. 

You see, Eddie Levert grew up in the church and used to sing gospel music, so he knows how it was years ago and how it still is, no doubt.   We are so grateful he's honest about it, because we would never hear anyone say it, especially someone from the gospel music industry.  You've got to hear the interview for yourself.

This must have been a very interesting show, CeCe Winans interviewing Richard Smallwood on TBN.  Although we have not seen the show, we could imagine them going back in time, from the beginning of Richard Smallwood's career.  Richard Smallwood's unique style is truly a gift from God, so we cannot hear what he has to say about gospel music, overall.

Homosexual Activists Get Gospel Artist, Pastor Donnie McClurkin Kicked Out of King Memorial Concert


We do not think Dr. Martin Luther King would approve of Pastor Donnie McClurkin being kicked out of his memorial concert if he was alive, today.   Whoever is responsible for having this legendary gospel artist kicked out, just because he admits to being saved and delivered from the curse of homosexuality is in trouble with God.   However, do you honestly think Dr. Martin Luther King would be for homosexuality if he were alive? 

According to BlackChristianNews.com, Pastor McClurkin was scheduled to perform at the D.C. government-sponsored concert with other singers at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial during the "Reflections on Peace From Ghandi to King" event. But at the request of Mayor Vincent C. Gray (D), who fielded concerns from the activists Friday, the Grammy-winning singer decided not to perform, a mayoral spokeswoman said. 

If this is what the King Memorial Concert is all about, then maybe its God's will that African Americans be divided, the righteous no longer affiliating with those whom condone homosexuality against God's Word.   For a lot of our race to oppose God's Word and yield to homosexuality means there is no chance for unity, ever.   Furthermore, we honor Pastor Donnie McClurkin, because he is the only gospel artist who has admitted to being delivered and set free from the demon of homosexuality. 


Matthew 5:12 says, 'Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.'  Many gospel artists are not willing to be persecuted like Pastor Donnie McClurkin, because they would rather make money and keep silent on the issue of homosexuality, so obviously they are not looking to go to heaven. 

Biblical Scriptures against Homosexuality 
  •  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." 

Homosexual Activists Get Donnie McClurkin, Who Said God Delivered Him from "the Curse of Homosexuality," Kicked Out of King Memorial Concert

Who's left of the New Jersey Mass Choir, just Donnie Harper and one choir member?


RGA readers, of course we acknowledge gospel music no longer has great mass choirs like many years ago.  However, it's very sad to see Donnie Harper, the founder of The New Jersey Mass Choir standing alone.   Just because mass choirs within the black church is not as popular within this era, it does not mean Donnie Harper cannot rebirth New Jersey Mass Choir.  

We shouldn't love multiculturalism so much, we lose our gift of real gospel music, which has already happened among most artists within the gospel music industry.  However, New Jersey Mass Choir was one of those choirs that brought us authentic gospel that stirred our souls back in the day and since Donnie Harper is yet alive, there is still hope.

It seems like when he had one hit with the New Jersey Mass Choir, 'I Want to Know What Love is,' Harper's choir began to fade away like the rest of them.   We sort of felt that was going to happen, since God does not want us mixing our talent with the world.   If we remember correctly, that song went mainstream.  In that particular year, 1985, that's when gospel music began merging into a contemporary style.   Around that era, the Winans were coming out with their jazz style of gospel and even Tramaine Hawkins came out with the song, 'Fall Down,' and church people called themselves exercising, then pretty soon they were eventually dancing to it, just like sinners.  Speaking of Tramaine Hawkins, she had another hit after that one, 'In the Morning Time', which also went mainstream, because it sounded worldly, although the words included, '...wake up singing hallelujah in the morning time...'  Teenagers from the black church who loved gospel, but were becoming weak to listen to secular music realized some gospel artists' music could now be heard on secular radio.   Many of them were not too happy about it, because they wanted to hear the real thing, just secular music created by worldly music artists.

Yes indeed, we can recall the time when Harper's song came out as The New Jersey Mass Choir seemed to shrink.  No more would we hear more than one hundred voices like his first album that was recorded at 'The Ritz'.  That seemed to be the first and last album when Donnie Harper's mass choir was having church and the anointing sure was flowing on every song.  There was no carnality and people were heard praising the Lord without embarrassment.  After you listen to the following videos, you will hear the New Jersey Mass Choir in concert like they are having church, something the average choir would be afraid to do today, since the multi-cultural trend within many black churches are now trying to be mega churches with much sophistication.

God has still blessed Donnie Harper to be here, that's the main thing.  Many founders of mass choirs from years ago are now dead, but the anointing is yet here for those whom want it.   The memory of mass choirs does not have to be something of the past, but we have got so much riddles and jukebox beats in gospel music, in order to please rich celebrity preachers that will pay them to be like the some other weak puppets within the gospel music industry.  We have a lot of cutesy gospel, which is now wash down bubble gum tunes to bring in money without focusing on Jesus Christ.   Therefore, we really wish Harper would refuse to stand alone and bring back The New Jersey Mass Choir like it was at "The Ritz."  However, God is looking for him to be a leader and re-invent what now has been lost, not a follower who is afraid to be holy.  We believe many new gospel artists will follow him and avoid the trend of being a hip hop gospel or Christian rap artist who just want fame and fortune.   

May God bless Donnie Harper of The New Jersey Mass Choir and we will be praying for him.

Christian Rapper Lecrae Comments about Criticism Over His Music


You know how the Word of God says we can't serve two masters in Matthew 6:24?  It should be obvious that the scripture is so accurate after hearing the news about Lecrae commenting on criticism coming from the church and the world.  The reason why he is not satisfying neither group, is because God's Word says he rather we be hot or cold than lukewarm and that scripture is found in Revelation 3:15. 

According to BlackChristianNews.com, Lecrae's music has been called, 'worldly' by the church and non-Christians called his music, 'too Christian' or 'too pagan.'   However, after viewing Lecrae allegedly making satanic hand signs, in our opinion his music is not Christian in any form.   Of course, the world is going to identify his music with being 'too Christian', simply because they don't know any better and they do not see many examples of true holiness among the performers in the gospel music industry today.  When they world listens to their type of music, they want pure secular, nothing hypocritical.    

Furthermore, if Lecrae is a part of the Illuminati, sold his soul to the Devil, his music is not Christian and does not represent God in any form or fashion.

Black Church News: Darlene McCoy Rebukes Prosperity Preachers Using Beyonce's Song


We think Darlene McCoy's creativity to rebuke prosperity preachers is very unique.  She used Beyonce's song, 'Irreplaceable' to speak directly to them, which many gospel artists could be afraid to do.  We never knew there was one left so strong to rebuke these slick pimp preachers.  In our opinion, McCoy sends a clear message out to these greedy preachers to 'stop misusing church members while enjoyimg your fame and fortune, prosperity preachers.' 

Darlene McCoy might as well be the one to rebuke these prosperity preachers, because the average gospel artist is so afraid, they will not get requested for a concert at the average mega church.   Anyway, we are living in an era when so many prosperity preachers are enjoying their wealth, some of them do not care about morals or even rebuking hip hop gospel artists for their carnality.  So, thank God McCoy using her talent, which God appreciates, because He's already spoken through certain ministers, He's is not pleased with these ministers preaching for fame and fortune.

Gospel Music Artist CeCe Winans Want Fans to Help Get Nephew out of Prison


We cannot believe the arrogance we are actually witnessing by CeCe Winans asking fans to sign a petition to get her nephew out of prison.   She allegedly claims Michael Winans was targeted because of his name.   What name is greater than the name of Jesus?  It's certainly not the 'Winans.' 

You see this is the problem within the black church and gospel music industry, there is too much pride.  Many gospel artists are living like celebrities and enjoying so much fame and fortune, they think they can live however they want to and still say they are save.  We come to tell you, they've got to live what they sing and God is tired of all the hypocrisy and carnality among them.  They cannot continue to offend God and hurt people and expect Him to bail them out of trouble.  Now, if Michael created this ponzi scheme and never returned one cent to these victims, then he needs to pay for it.   It's time for people to realize that God is not pleased with many family members of the Winans, because just by CeCe Winans plea to fans, it seems as though they think they are above the law.  Let us remind you that the Bible clearly pointed out that the law is for the lawless.   Therefore, if Michael Winans committed a crime, he has to pay for itThen, she allegedly had the audacity to mention she's believing God for a miracle on her Twitter account "Please help my nephew Michael Winans Jr to stay free from prison. Praying for Gods mercy, believing for a miracle!"  Let us ask you, what type of God is this woman and her family serving?  Is He a God who puts Michael Winans ahead of the average prisoners?  Absolutely not!   Her request is ridiculous and she is allegedly lying on the victims, accusing them of targeting her nephew, God is not pleased.
