Did The Gospel Community Provide R. Kelly A Hiding Place??
Good Monday morning online congregation, I’ve never really cared for Bishop Marvin Sapp’s music, my husband is one of his biggest fans, I'm not. My prayer is that one day FINALLY the church, gospel artists, and pastors/bishops stop running up to collaborate with folks like R. Kelly. He should’ve been canceled YEARS ago. But I guess if they cancel him, many would have to cancel themselves. Marvin Sapp “Listen” dropped Sept 29 2017. Why even was this record made? R Kelly is tied up with a bunch of artists Gospel and Secular. He writes for these people, helps produce their music, as far a Marvin Sapp goes, they had the same band for tours for the longest. Listen in what Sapp had to say to Erica Campbell about not taking R. Kelly off his latest recording.
This is what bothered me the most: “ He goes through some of the stories in the bible, recalling the flawed men that God chose to carry out some of his biggest tasks (like Noah’s ark, for example), and spread important messages. Marvin explains that therefore, it’s not his responsibility to condemn him, only to pray for him.” Marvin Sapp is conveniently leaving out one important aspect of the “flawed” individuals he describes in the Bible. All of those individuals acknowledged their sins and repented for them...meaning they turned away from their ways. This was all about money as usual. Kelly is an active predator in our society that is still ruining the lives of young women and their families and has not come close to stopping this sick behavior of his. Sapp is another Church going money sell out.
