Church, Israel Houghton PR Team Did A "HELLUVA" Good Job!
Reader I truly hated to hear and read this news yesterday. Grammy Award-winning gospel artist Israel Houghton announced to the world that he's officially divorced from his wife of twenty years, Meleasa Houghton, because of his indiscretion. Me, myself and I want to thank Isreal Houghton for not allowing his sins to sting the church at large by way of scandal & prosecutorial uncovering. I think he's a very talented individual. When one is given a platform like he has, one must do EVERYTHING possible to keep scandal and such from erupting. His PR team did a helluva job in handling this..... Isreal Houghton has one of the largest ministries in the country. I don't want to come off sanctimonious and self-righteous, which some may read into this post, but that's not it at all. I'm noticing how many of the church community are now lining up to show support and salute Israel on his "transparency." While that has its place, it's TRAGIC that he will now be considered a good spokesperson for the kingdom of God, while men and women who fight DAILY to keep their flesh under subjection, and their marriages intact will be dismissed....because they are not Israel Houghton. This generation of "believers" have embraced will arms wide open those who slip and slide their way into the kingdom, and turn their noses up at those walking in integrity. Whether folks want to believe it or not, the body of Christ and those representing Him are held to a much higher standard.....ESPECIALLY those in ministry.
His statement reads:
