Da Truth Admits To Affair!

Gospel rapper Da’ T.R.U.T.H. announced that:
“in light of a moral indiscretion in my personal life, I will be taking a sabbatical from music ministry and teaching upon fulfilling my current commitments to work closely with my pastor, church, and restoration team.”

When we sin and fall down is it best to just be quiet about it and let it be discovered or put it out there and let's deal with it? What's done in the dark always comes to the light...Da' Truth could have hide this from his wife and the public but he chose not to....But by taking this path it seem to say that he's more honest, more repentant and more mindful of the path to recovery and restoration...Mine-you he was the first one to come forward and admit that he fell.... I respect Da Truth a lot more because he came out and said something... Right now, there’s talk going around about Tye Tribbett…Right now he’s not acknowledging or admitting to anything...But if it turn out that he did get someone pregnant who was not his wife and he has lied and denied his sin and wouldn't take responsibility for his actions, let’s just say I’m not gonna be a fan any more....That's how Jay Moss lost me as a fan of his music....You can not receive from someone you don't respect bottom line....Da Truth is not justifiying his actions... he acknowledges they're wrong and he's not leading people in the wrong direction by kind of excusing his behavior.... Out of all the mess that's come to light lately.. so far.. this one has been handled the best....Right now marriage is under attack!

The Church Is A Mirror Of Our Community.

When I heard that Bebe Winans was arrested on domestic violence charges.... for allegedly shoving his ex-wife to the ground during a heated argument... I am kinda waiting for the church community to speak out against this behavior, or will they?.... I don't see that taking place any time soon do you?....fact is domestic violence is a issue among the church community. Why do the church community be fronting like every thing is alright when in reality it's not? Why do some pastors say they believe in the teachings of Christ, but behind closed doors do something total different? We are taught in a biblical marriage the husband loves the wife like Christ loved the church.... we know how much that was because He gave His life for it. Therefore, you should not find a follower of Christ teaching hitting ,shoving, kicking or attacking his wife. The church community sometimes love to misquote the Bible by saying that the wife “submit” to her husband because the “Bible says so.” This incident is nothing new to The Black Church. Growing up in the deep South I have never heard a sermon on Domestic Violence. But I have seen wives of deacons with black eyes. There are some pastors in some churches who can not preach against domestic violence because they are doing it. Domestic Violence is one of the black churches worst kept secrets. some women we are aware of and some not.....Some chooses to stay and endure believing God wants them to. If there is anything good that can come out of this is maybe more churches will start looking at this problem that plagues our community. If it's in the community it's in the church.
