Bishop Marvin Sapp Is Finding Out That SELLING The Gospel Message Of Christ Is Not As Profitable As Thought!


Reader in a bit of anger yesterday Bishop Marvin Sapp took to his Facebook page with the above comment. Gospel music as much as I love it doesn't have the draw of secular music for most people. Bishop Sapp is comparing apples to oranges here.  I understand the gospel artist wants to be successful and rich, but the gospel artist needs to pick a master. And I think that may conflict gospel music consumers. If I go to see Al Green, I either want gospel Al or R&B Al. I don't want the mix.

Bishop 
Sapp, also talking about accepting the questionable lifestyles of some of these gospel artists homosexuals, ho-mongers, drunks, druggies singing the gospel that ain't changed them (what good news they talking about)? 

Somebody should tell the good bishop the idea that the world supports its own isn't new by any stretch of the imagination. It has always been and will always be.  I am a huge supporter of Gospel Music, but the problem for me is that a lot of Gospel Music releases today are not worth buying. Enough with these shallow repetitive songs with no spiritual depth or inspiration from the Holy Spirit.

  1. HE NEEDS TO SHUT UP. HE'S SAME PERSON THAT MADE A HIT RECORD OF.NEVER WOULD HAVE MADE IT WITHOUT YOU.AND IT'S PLAYED IN THE CLUBS AND EVERYWHERE. WHY WHY WHY. CAUSE THAT SONG DOESN'T ACKNOWLEDGE OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. AND HE MADE MONEY OFF OF IT.SO WHAT HE IS SAYING IS LIKE THE POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK. HE SINGS SONGS THAT ARE CROSS OVER HE IS GOING TO DO WHATEVER HE CAN DO TO MAKE MONEY. HE HASN'T LEFT HIS RECORDING LABEL COMPANY AND SIGN EXCLUSIVELY WITH ONE THAT'S GOSPEL MUSIC ONLY. LIKE ERNEST PUGH MUSIC. GO TO THE GYM AND LOSE WEIGHT.

  2. Miss Ann,

    It's amazing how Sapp continues to misrepresent the WORD of God. It is all about keeping the commandments of God.

    That's why he can't quote scripture to wiggle his way out of this.

    Trying to compare himself to Jay-Z. Why as "man of God" would he stoop so low? Hasn't he as a "Bishop" read in his bible not to be conformed to the world (Romans 12:2)?

    1. Shepherd I agree my biggest issue with his comment is it totally ignores what a questionable lifestyle does to a great message and testimony when the world catches on. It tells the world it is okay to be hypoctitical in how you live your life.

      Sapp is a fool to attach worldly accolades and $$$ to the Gospel of our LORD Jesus!

  3. YOU CAN'T TELL PEOPLE'S HOW TO SPEND THERE FINANCES.IF JAY Z FANS WANT TO SUPPORT HIS MUSIC THAT'S THERE PREROGATIVE. SAPP OR NO ONE ELSE SHOULD BE CONDEMNING FOLKS ON WHO THEY SUPPORT WITH THERE FINANCES. HE SUPPORTS WHO HE WANTS WITH HIS FINANANCES. WITH THE UNBELIEVERS YOU ALREADY KNOW THERE LIFESTYLES THEY LIVE THERE LIVES IN THE OPEN MOST OF THEM. THEY DON'T PROFESSIONAL THEY ARE SAVED. BUT THESE SO CALLED SAVED AND SANTIFIED AND HOLY GHOST FILLED GOSPEL ARTIST'S SOME OF THEM ARE LIVING SOME RATCHET LIFESTYLES AND IT'S A DISGRACE IN GOD'S EYESIGHT. SINGING AND PROFESSING THEY LOVE GOD. AND ARE WHOREMONGERS,LESBIANS,HOMOSEXUALITY, PORNOGRAPHY ADDITIVE, MONEY LAUNDERING, PICKING UP PROSITUTES MALE OR FEAMALE, PREACHING. BIPOLAR DISORDER LYING PROPHETS.YET THESE FOLKS WANT PEOPLE'S TO SUPPORT THERE FOOLISHNESS. AND WILL SAY TOUCH NOT MY ANOINTED ONE. GET IN THE PULPIT AND TELL YOU GOD HAS FORGIVEN THEM AND THEY AIN'T GOING NO WHERE. SO I GUESS THAT'S OK. WELL NO IT ISN'T. SO YOU WANT FOLKS TO STILL SUPPORT ALL THAT FOOLISHNESS THAT IS GOING ON IN THE HOUSE OF GOD. AND IT SHOULDN'T BE. BUT THE SINNERS ARE SUPPORTING THERE OWN WHO IS LIVING THERE LIFE ALREADY IN THE OPEN. I THINK THE CHURCH, THE GOSPEL MUSIC INDUSTRY NEEDS TO GET ITSELF TOGETHER BEFORE IT STARTS JUDGING ANYONE OR ANYBODY OR ANYTHING. YES I AM A CHRISTIAN WOMAN. BUT THE TRUTH IS JUST THAT THE TRUTH.

    1. Agree Mike it sounds like a little envy to me. Also, as someone said in the comments for the article, Jay Z lives by what he puts in his songs for the most parts. His music is authentic or at least perceived as authentic. I think that is all that fans of gospel ask and expect. If Sapp focuses on that and less on personal albums sales it will all fix itself. Problem is you can't ask your fans to buy your "Holier than thou" or "full of faith" music if you aren't living or trying to live holy or by principles of faith.

  6. Sapp says "support the message of gospel music".

    I SAY DO NOT SUPPORT THE MESSAGE OF GOSPEL MUSIC.

    GOSPEL MUSIC is worldly and carnal, lacks truth that uplift JESUS CHRIST, is NOT SPIRIT LED, SIMPLE, UNFRUITFUL. UNGODLY and COUNTER PRODUCTIVE.

    Its Artists and MUSICIANS (Sapp included) are PERVERTED CONTROVERSIAL, IMMODEST, BIBLICALLY Illiterate, MATERIALISTIC, CONFUSED, FULL OF ILLICIT LUST, UNHOLY, GREEDY, FULL OF JEALOUSY, ENVIOUS, SEEK RECOGNITION, COMPETETIVE and FULL of ARROGANCE and PRIDE.

    Sapp will NEVER EVER get paid like JZ. I'm GLAD the LORD is judging the evils and crookedness of gospel music, so their artists remain beggars, and their fake Christian supporters pockets continue to be emptied. Gospel Music bear no real fruit.

    Lastly I say in truth, to the true saints of God - "Don't fall for ANY of SAPPS tricks here, as he (SAPP) ONLY seeks to inflict GUILT through manipulation".

    DON'T BUY HIS ALBUMS. DON'T buy into his SCHEME!!!

  8. Isn't he overseeing a CHAIN or over 100 churches all over he country?!?!

    How does he have time to write, produce and COMPLAIN about the gospel music industry???

  9. 1. Jealous
    2. Intertwined in the RECORD INDUSTRY.
    3. Reality: his record company said to him "Marvin, our records indicate that sales for the Inspirational Music division are down _____ %. You need to speak to your target audience to garner more support/sales.

    Translation: You better move more units or we'll be forced to drop you. You see the cuts taking place at ESPN and other companies...
    5. Sapp is not over 100 churches. If he was, he wouldn't need a record contract.

  10. So essentially this Sapp is saying, don't question our lifestyle, just buy our records!
    Really???

    Maybe he should Sapp something from God's word instead of trying to guilt trip aware measuring believers into being "Sapps".

  13. Some believer won't buy gospel music of some artis because of their presumed flaws and questionable life.
    -Marvin Sapp

    Let's take a look....
    Hitting your wife with a barstool is not questionable, it's assault (James Fortune)
    Getting lit and cussing on Periscope is not questionable (Leandria Johnson)
    Taking nude photos and paying your mistress to be on staff at your church is not presumed, flawed or questionable, it's adultery (Charles Jenkins)
    God hates divorce. That's not questionable. (Israel Houghton, Deitrick Haddon..________ insert name of numerous other gospel artists)
    Whoremongering, fornication homosexuality, etc.. is not questionable (Tonex, Tye Tribbett, Wess Morgan)
    Car commonly known to be seen around the city at houses at 2 am, then getting jumped andyour pants ripped off at the gas station the next day is not a questionable life (Marvin Winans)
    Ok Sapp(sucker) I gotcha..

    2. Can you be more plain spoken about the Winans incident? What are you saying? His car is not the only one that was made. Is it possible someone else has the same car? Being in the neighborhood and then getting pants ripped off--I'm not connecting the dots on this one.

    3. Marvin Winans car has been known to be seen parked outside parishioners houses (mostly female) at 2 am for "prayer"
      When he got carjacked at a gas station awhile back, the locals in the neighborhood were the gas station was said they had seen his car parked several late nights at a young ladies house. Winans said he had been "counseling" her. Seems the locals caught him at the gas station and....

    4. Thanks for the clarification. That doesn't sound like the Pastor Winans that is a holiness preaching, tongue talking, shouting, dancing,singing, praising and continuously raising money to build a new church that I am familiar with.

      I don't think Pastor Winans is stupid enough to jeopardize his name and reputation by hanging out in the hood at a female's house. Especially with an expensive SUV parked out front! They jumped him at the gas station in the afternoon--broad daylight.

      Delete
    5. Even if the people you mentioned were indeed guilty of those things isn't it still gossip? Im not saying we should not call out pastors/leaders when they're wrong because we should. But we don't know if they've repented of those things and if they have we shouldn't keep bringing them up.

      Delete
    6. I googled the story about Pastor Winans being carjacked, beaten and robbed. None of the three defendants mentioned anything about Pastor Winans being in the neighborhood late at night. They did say when was assaulted, he started talking about Jesus! I do not want to call you a liar, but I do not believe the late night tipping stuff. Certainly, Pastor Winans would not be that dumb!!

    7. 1 is an accident
      2 is a problem
      3 is a trend.
      Pastor Winans fornication passed trend long ago, similar to Jamal Bryant.
      However, you are free to believe as you wish.

    8. It might be wisdom not to stop for gas in Detroit on Linwood and Davison St in a high end Lexus.

    9. There is a difference between opinions and facts. Fact: Pastor Winans was driving a 2012 Infinity Q56 SUV when the incident took place. Maybe he has fallen 3 times, but he hasn't been tipping in the hood with his luxury car parked out on the street to be a target for thieves. The Bible says a good man falls seven times. What you going to do with that verse?

      Delete
    10. You can state your FACT all you want. Still doesn't compare with the TRUTH. SO don't come here with your HALF truth to make YOUR POINT. State the entire verse. IT says "For a just man falleth seven times, AND RISE UP AGAIN: but the WICKED shall fall into mischief.

      And since you want to talk FACT as you put it, YOU don't know it to be a FACT "he hasn't been tipping in the hood with his luxury car parked out on the street to be a target for thieves". So don't get caught talking about others as nonfactual, when you are as you charge them to be.

      He as a Bishop, should be blameless, and should have been able to take care of His own household.

      Delete
    11. I stand corrected on the scripture; I was going from memory, you are correct. The Bible does say a bishop is to be blameless. It has been put on the record that the breakup of his marriage was not entirely his fault. His ex has a you tube out taking some of the blame.

      No I don't know for a fact that he hasn't been tipping in the hood because I wasn't there. The defendants didn't make that statement on the record. And as I said before, it does not sound like the Bishop that I am familiar with and I still don't believe he would be dumb enough have done that.

      Delete
    12. I hear ya Anonymous. You just never know about anyone who call themselves a bishop these days. The call of a bishop is a godly call, and folks just don't become a bishop because they can sang. Scriptures are clear the qualifications of a bishop. People who desires to become one should really consider the character a bishop should possess.

      Delete
    13. The word bishop used in I Timothy refers not just to Bishop in the context we now associate with it. It means a pastor, leader, overseer. The Lord has called all who serve in ministry to walk in a lifestyle of holiness AND He requires those who name the name of Christ to walk in a lifestyle of holiness also.

      I feel that a lot of folks took on the title Bishop to stay up-to-date with the hope they would remain relevant (Jones Syndrome).

      It is commonly reported that a prominent denomination will make you a bishop if you pay the fee which is thousands of dollars.

      It has gotten so bad that folks are being made auxiliary Bishops and they don't have a church and not over any churches, but they get to wear their colars, colors and chains after they pay their coins.

      Delete
    14. Justsayin you are correct. The I Timothy bishop definition applies to pastors, leaders and overseers. And yes sadly one can simply pay to be a Bishop (sometimes for as little as a few hundred dollars) with no churches to oversee or fruit of Bihop qualities stated in Scripture.

      Delete
    15. Amen Justsayin and Richard Lee.

      Thing is most these so called bishops refuse to teach the Spirit of God gives all believers spiritual gifts as recorded in Romans, I Corinthians and Ephesians. No one gift is better than the other.

      Many think they possess a five fold ministry that causes them to operate in pride. Each believer needs to know they are gifted and the Holy ghost hives them gifts as He will and chooses. Churches have failed in helping the saints know their gifts and do not encourage them to minister accordingly. Another problem I see is many thinking "singing" is a gift. You will never find that to be the case from Scriptures.

      I couldn't agree with you more, the ideal of a bishop is highly misused in many of these churches, COGIC is prime example.

      Delete
    16. As long as believers stay out of their Bibles, they will remain ignorant. Yes, God has given all believers spiritual gifts. Some in ministry want us to look to them and not seek and know God for ourselves. I thank God that I was, saved and grew up in a Word and Holy Ghost filled church. Half the so-called preaching I hear makes me shake my head and a lot of it is flat out false teaching.

      Delete
    17. Amen again Justsayin. I'm so glad the LORD gave you to know the truth. I always say if you know the truth, you can smell a lie a mile away. It's been a pleasure reading your responses. GOD BLESS YOU and may the LORD use you as his vessel to personally grow in Him, edify His body, and reach the LOST.

  14. Jay Z's album sold over a million copies in less than one week due to a corporate deal with Sprint, not because of actual record sales. In general, record sales have been down for a very long time. Secular artists aren't selling tons of records like they used to either. There are and will always be certain artists in every genre who does better than everyone else. For instance, Tamela Mann's recent albums have outsold many well established r&b artists. Marvin Sapp needs to understand that the business has changed. Scolding the audience isn't going to increase record sales. But it will turn people off to you.

  16. Yall haters can sit down, he's absolutely right. Does anyone ask Beyonce, Rihanna, Adele, Justin Bieber or Stevie wonder what they do in their personal lives? If a man is in Christ, he is a new creature. It doesn't make him/her perfect cos we are all a work in progress. If these artists have decided to bless us with music, we should support them because we are one family. They sing to God and edify our souls. God uses people in spite of their "questionable lives". Not supporting them doesn't do anyone any good!

    1. His music blesses NO ONE! I challenge YOU,since you seem to be a great SAPP supporter, tell us how his music blessed YOU! You want to be blessed, hunger and thirst after righteousness, become meek in spirit, be merciful, be a peacemaker, and pure on heart. These are the VERY words of Christ. Somehow YOU think "never could have make it" is more gospel than Jesus' VERY OWN teaching. I will never buy that LIE. AND here is another one for you, you should have learned in SUNDAY SCHOOL, "it is more BLESSED to give, than it is to RECEIVE", again the WORD of the Lord. Those cute little songs with the silly little lyrics that gets you to tear up and choke up is not a blessing. Many cry just to be in the presence of THE LUKES OF Beyonce and J.Z.

      Thank you Get Outta Here, I agree unlike preachers, Jay-Z is not preaching to the masses about living a holier than thou lifestyle and being a hypocrite. The reason why gospel music is on life support is because the masses are no longer buying into the hypocrisy of the Black church. Jay-Z was always honest about what he did in the past.

      Delete
  17. Gospel music is fading because the industry is breaking its neck trying to make it appealing to the masses......aka.....the Jay-Z fans, etc. It'll be a cold day in hell before I ever purchase a Jay-Z record but massive sales don't indicate that he's doing something drastically "right" at all. True, he never claimed to be a moral figure but there IS a greater level of responsibility that should be placed on his shoulders in terms of influence.

    I'm not gonna play the "bash all things church" game that many social media dwellers play without equally bashing Jay-Z for not better utilizing his influence and platform to help motivate more younger blacks in a positive direction.

    But neither Jay-Z's popularity of Gospel music profitability (which rakes in billions of dollars, by the way) are anything to brag about. There are ways to reach the masses without compromising your belief and still staying true to the integrity of God's word. I'm not sure neither Sapp or Jay-Z will ever realize that.
