Apostle David A. Rodgers Serves Up The Real Tea About Fantasia Barrino and Kendall Taylor!
FANTASIA BARINO: Can someone answer me this, would THIS be a STORY, had she decided NOT to WORSHIP GOD? If I told you her new HUSBAND, is a YOUTH MINISTER and MENTOR in the MOVE PROGRAM, in North Carolina and is SAVED, and has led hundreds of YOUTH to salvation would that matter? If I told you that FANTASIA turned down a LARGE, SECULAR RECORDING CONTRACT because her and her husband have decided she would best serve the Kingdom by doing GOSPEL MUSIC, which has been a staple in her concerts since entering the music industry anyway, would that matter?
If I told you the reason she is singing her old music now is because she has contracted concerts that were signed years ago and that she must meet those obligations just like the SECULAR EMPLOYMENT you work at everyday, would that matter? In the grand scheme of things, Fantasia didn't ask you to LIKE her WORSHIP nor her OUTFIT. She has decided to make her exit from the secular arena by taking her Audience WITH HER into the Kingdom. While we condemn and judge her for breaking protocol at her JOB, to WORSHIP GOD, I have to ask, why are you so upset?
The people who PAID big money to attend a SECULAR CONCERT, didn't BOO, STORM OUT or DEMAND their MONEY BACK! They LIFTED THEIR HANDS and WORSHIPPED WITH HER. They WANTED the WORSHIP!! None of them questioned her outfit because they were focused on the KING. I wonder how many other ARTISTS feel CONDEMNED and JUDGED and unable to find LOVE and ACCEPTANCE in the "CHURCH" because of our EXTERNAL JUDGEMENT of them. How many of our greatest worshippers WANT to come IN to the church but have met RESISTANCE instead of LOVE? The woman with the alabaster box had the same problem.
The PHARISEES questioned her AUTHENTICITY and attempted to STOP HER from ministering to JESUS because of what they knew about her BACKGROUND! JESUS made no such prohibition and she washed His feet with her TEARS and dried them with her HAIR! JESUS ACCEPTED HER WORSHIP and promptly FORGAVE HER! Maybe, just maybe, those who work behind the enemy lines are as necessary as those who work in PULPITS! Maybe just maybe, Fantasia, is on an assignment in an industry that is in NEED of the GOSPEL, and you don't have what it takes in DESIRE or SKILL to reach them.
She does!! Never mind. Carry on, back to your religious arguments that never amount to ANYBODY getting saved. SMH “And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.
Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner. And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on. There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty. And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both.
Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most? Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged. And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head. Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet. My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment. Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little. And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.” Luke 7:37-48 KJV
