Could God Be Forewarning Gospel artist, Erica Campbell of Mary Mary Through Stroke Scare?


For too many years, some gospel artists have passed on from various diseases.  Many times, it was because some of them did not eat right, but other times it was because of the way they lived in their personal lives.  Now today, we question could it be because God is not pleased with some of them blending gospel with Satan's music?  As you know, Erica Campbell of Mary Mary recently opened up about her stroke scare, meaning she could have a stroke.  Now, we are not pointing fingers, but this article is for all gospel artists to get right with God and stop mixing God's music with secular.  God's has His own music and does not need to mingle borrow music from the Devil's territory to make His artists successful.

We are sincerely praying for this sister duo, but in our opinion, Mary Mary music allegedly has been very offensive and has violated the scripture that instructs the body of Christ to be different.  Gospel music artists should not have to be seductive in their performances to win the world to Christ.  First, in 2 Cor. 6:14, the Bible says, 'Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?'  That particular scripture is not just speaking of relationships, but in everything we do.  Therefore, when we create gospel music, it should be absolutely distinct.   That scripture is very clear and there should be no one to say, they cannot understand it.   As we've told you so many times before, the Bible also clearly forewarns us to be set apart in I John 2:15: '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.'

All of you gospel artists whom are out there making your money with your hip hop gospel, you need to seriously think about how your music may offend God.   If you cannot live a long life and enjoy your wealth, then you need to think about how you can recreate it.   It does not pay to twist God's gospel to make a quick buck and live a short life.  Now, we do not know why Erica Campbell has allegedly had symptoms of a possible stroke, but it is time for all gospel artists to realize God is looking at the entire industry and if it is not fully to glorify Him, then it needs to be completely shut down.

In the meantime, we keep Erica Cambell of Mary Mary and her sister in our prayers.

In a performance only two greats could deliver, McClurkin and Baker perform “Ain’t No Need to Worry” writen by Marvin Winans. This was a touching performance. We remember when Anita Baker sung this song with Marvin Winans years when the song came out.
