Karen Clark-Sheard (What Is a First Lady ?)


Question: Has anyone seen the video on YouTube of, Karen Clark-Sheard  trying to explain the role of the First Lady in many churches? Karen, who's a well-known gospel artist and "First Lady" to John Drew Sheard senior pastor at Greater Emmanuel Institutional Church of God in Christ in Detroit.

One comment in particular has caused an uproar among some church goers. In the clip, Karen said that the first lady should be the best dressed.  Now, I totally  understand what Karen meant and what she was saying when she made the comment about dressing up.


 But, I also believe the idea of the best dress among church women is another form of game, contest and competition within the church body. Competition among godly people  breeds pride!! God hates pride and the high look so He condemns it  among His people.

  The first lady is a  role of distinction that I believe places one woman above other women in the church. I believe it creates the type of cattiness and animosity in the minds and hearts of women and girls within the church environment.      What is biblical or holy about one feeling they need to be the best dressed at the church?


For all who don't know "The First Lady" is a title given to the wives of pastors in many Black Churches. There is not ONE SCRIPTURE in the Bible that briefly suggest anything about a first lady.
