Open letter to Dr. Bobby Jones

Dr. Bobby Jones
P.O. Box 190681
Nashville, TN 37219

Dr. Jones,

As we have become aware of your appearance in the homosexual movie Dirty Laundry, we thought it prudent to bring to  your attention just how many people are deeply offended by your participation and “enthusiastic” endorsement of this movie’s message. What’s more, you have made statements which contradict the truth of God.

You have brought great shame to the Body of Christ and its time you humbled yourself, believed the gospel and repented for the time is fulfilled and the kingdom of God is at hand (Mark 1:14-15). We have been inundated with messages from people who have said they were and are disgusted by your conduct and had no other choice but to not watch your show. Do not think that your popularity is with people who do not know the difference between what is holy and unholy. You are being carried by those whose god is flesh, talent and popularity. This has nothing to do with the gospel of Jesus Christ, but rather is a reflection of your own selfish desires.  Dr. Jones, the best thing to do is just rename your show the Bobby Jones Talent Hour. That would best describe what you currently do.

You claimed that you are “too intelligent” to know that homosexuality “isn’t entirely behavioral.” Where did the scriptures tell you that? Is your alleged intelligence greater than that of God who created man in his image and likeness? Does your education eclipse that of the Almighty? Does your intelligence prevent you from seeing what is clearly revealed in scripture or do you despise God’s word and its truth? God and His relationship with Isreal in the Old Testament was never characterized as a same gender relationship. Neither is Christ’s relationship to the church in the New Testament.  Yet, you ignore this forward truth and instead in your “intelligence”, claim that unnamed “talk shows” and “experts” have been the basis of your beliefs.

From that, we can deduce that you have indeed been deceived. We call on you to ask God and His church for forgiveness that you have allowed the enemy to use you to influence people against the truth.

Dr. Jones, your participation and endorsement of the evil message of this movie and those responsible for it, breaches the standards of righteousness established by God. By aligning yourself with individuals who revel in sexual immorality against the good and perfect will of God, you’ve demonstrated that you do not represent Christ, but your own error-laden ideology.  Further, this should be considered antithetical to the cause of Christ. He came to reconcile man to God through love and obedience.

Please don’t think that your popularity with certain people,  your alleged high media ratings and your longevity in front of the camera are beyond the rebuke of God. According to Romans 2:4, He is —in mercy– simply allowing you time to repent. God has pulled down much greater people with much greater accomplishments simply for denying Him the glory due to His name. The alleged “rift” between the homosexual community and the church is nothing more than a trojan horse issue. The rift occurs first with God, whose standards of sexual morality the gay christian and political movements seem to eschew.  You cannot heal that which is reproachable to God. And you cannot reconcile the church with sin. There is to be no peaceful co-existence of the two.  The more pressing need is that you recognize that you have been in error for far too long and that it is time for you to make a change. We will no longer be silent while you priss, primp and pretend that you are representing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Sadly, your “fans” in the gospel music industry have feted you as an “ambassador”. You should know that the praises of men are deceptive in that they seek to exalt self above the throne of God. The consequence is a great fall. A true ambassador would only represent the interests of the one who has sent him. Your actions, comments and public lifestyle clearly show that you have not been sent by God.

Lest you and those who have emboldened you to make these decisions think otherwise, our admonition should not be construed as hate, but clear admonition directed by scripture. We do not claim to have any enforcement, that is in God’s hands alone.  It is your choice to weigh it in the balance and make amends.

  1. This letter is absolutely piercing, convicting, painful and flawless! The truth of the matter is, if the shoe was on the other foot, the gay activists would do the same, if not come down harder on the perpetrator. They are relentless. You see what happened to Isaiah Washington.

    Anyway, back to the point….GREAT LETTER!

  2. Well written letter for your target audience. As usual they’re eating it right up.
    Somehow I get the feeling I’ve read this letter before. I know… the last time was when the good white folks down south were coming up with all sorts of reasons why slavery shouldn’t end and why Jim Crow should remain legal, because the bible said so. Ephesians 6:5 Slaves, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in the sincerity of your heart, as to Christ.

    It’s quite convenient for some Christians to cherry pick scriptures to persecute marginalized groups of people with and to evolve their interpretation of scriptures like the one above that kept black people in physical bondage for years.

    The word of God should never be used as a weapon to destroy his people. While all of you are busy playing “Christians” and trying to destroy Dr. Bobby Jones’ reputation by creating unecessary controversy over a cameo appearance in a movie, I want you to know that in spite of your efforts this film is going to save the life of a gay child who was ready to end it all because of the rejection and fire and brimstone messages he’s heard from people like you. Families will be healed after digesting years of biblical dogma that has led to disowning their own flesh and blood.

    So despite all of the negative press you’re giving the film it will still serve it’s purpose and Dr. Bobby Jones and his ministry will continue to be blessed for doing exactly what Jesus did… embracing all people.

    GCMW: Darian, it sounds like you have been elected to run defense for Dr. Jones and counterspin for the movie. We hope theyre paying you well 🙂 It also sounds like you don’t have a full understanding nor acceptance of God’s Word in its full circle purpose. Nevertheless, we’ve already addressed the slaves issue here. The infamous cherry picking and other crimes of the spirit are addressed here here and here.

    ……The word of God should never be used as a weapon to destroy (judge) his people.

    Please read John 12: 46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
    47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
    48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
    49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
    50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

    BTW is this going to be a family movie?
    …..I want you to know that in spite of your efforts this film is going to save the life of a gay child who was ready to end it all because of the rejection and fire and brimstone messages he’s heard from people like you….

  4. Pastor DL,

    Did you send this letter to Bobby Jones personally? I hope so. It would be better if you would schedule a personal meeting with him. If not, this “open” letter will only be read by frequent visitors of this blog. Dr. Jones will not feel the conviction that others may feel when reading this. He may not read this blog at all. He will not heed to the Word of God if it is only read “by the choir”.

    It would be powerfully convicting if you faced him one-on-one as a witness of the transforming power of the Gospel of Christ reminding him of the reason why he sings.

  5. Good Job Elder Foster and GCM Watch.

    I am excited to see someone finally address the mess that has been happening openly for years. This move is the tool that was used to bring up the true issues. God has his own apponted time to deal with the Sins of a people.

    So that Darien may understand truth and how God deals with people, God throught the Bible would rather expose, humble, chastize and everything else BEFORE a person or GROUP of individuals are turned over to destruction. In fact God was and is so serious about saving man from the condition of sin that God through Ezekiel dealt with the whole process of warning, turning and repentance in both Chapters 3 and 33.
    After reading that you should know that as Saints we have the DUTY to warn the SINNER of his ways. This is NOT about personal preference, it’s about SIN…SIN condemns people to HELL, which is, at it’s heart, utter seperation from God. NONE of us have been in that place yet so it’s hard to fathom what HELL actually is…no matter how dark and dank things are or have become in our lives…HELL is beyond imagination.
    With that in mind why should we or anyone else who loves the Lord allow Dr. Jones or any HOMOSEXUAL go to HELL without displaying the Love of God and warning them BEFORE destruction?
    You see, in essence, YOU love the persona, stage presence, and the accolades of men that he has received. WE love the SOUL so much that we can’t just sit and let it go to HELL.
    So the facts are that WE, THE TRUE CHURCH, Loves Dr. Jones and EVERY HOMOSEXUAL More than you will ever give credit for. We’d rather place our personal reputations on the line, be hated among fellow ministry associates, and be called everything BUT a child of God JUST SO THAT HE AND THOSE ASSOCIATED WITH HIM DON’T GO TO HELL. THE SAME GOES FOR EVERY SINNER WHETHER HOMOSEXUAL OR NOT.
    In the process, we must set a standard for ALL men and women to see the TRUTH that God has required which is complete subjection and adherence to his word.
    Finally, to clarify your understanding and the understanding of them that read, every document that MAN interprets CAN be used wrong and against anyone. The US Constitution is a PERFECT example. Where is the IRS and what does the second amendment really say?…How the Bible or any other document was used at a point in history IS NOT the issue. In fact it is a “strawman” argument to say that because the Bible was once wrongly interpreted that it has no validity. Why? Because TRUTH has been revealed and we know how to use it more correctly NOW than ever before in history. Therefore, we can walk in the light that we have been given.
    The real issue is are we convinced of God’s Bible revealed TRUTH…The key to the whole matter is that NONE of these SINS will send a person to HELL…ONLY UNBELIEF DOES THAT. People continue in their sins because of UNBELIEF…Heb. 3:15…People DON’T come to Jesus because of UNBELIEF…So, in short Darien, this is not about any mans reputation, stage show or ability to make money, it’s about SALVATION! The real question to you, Dr. Jones or any homosexual or other sinner that reads any of this is, WILL YOU BELIEVE GOD AND TAKE HIM AT HIS WORD?
    If so, he’ll wash and DELIVER you from your sins if you’re willing and bold enough to repent. It’s really that simple.

  6. Jason, the full effect is in motion. It will include emails, hard copy mail and phone calls, plus much more. The original posting will be updated later today.

  7. Look, anyone paying a small amount of attention over the past 50 years knows what a problem homosexuality is in the black community. Statistically, no one can deny that there is a MUCH HIGHER presence of practicing homosexual males in the black community than in ANY OTHER racial group. (HINT: Have you heard the DC stats on HIV/AIDS lately?).

    So, all of you who choose NATURE over NURTURE as the cause, you must now be forced to admit that you believe the black race is genetically predisposed towards homosexuality above all races. NEXT HINT: Make sure your engine is warmed up and the road ahead is clear whenever you make that statement, cause if you’re in the black community when you say it, you’re gonna need to bolt out of there for your very life. But, I digress.

    Is there anyone out there who doesn’t believe that James Cleveland, the revered predecessor of all things black gospel music to “Dr.” Bobby Jones, died of complications due to AIDS? Talk to ministers from the 60’s on who knew what was going on behind the scenes at the GMWA conventions and you’ll hear story after story of Cleveland’s d’alliances with young black males. I don’t know if these stories are true, or not. However, I do know that the stories exist. Why were/are these rumours so persistent? Certainly makes one wonder.

    Was Bobby Jones involved or influenced by these situations? No one seems to be willing to say for sure. But you can’t help wonder given the similarities and proximities between the two.

    Whether any of this is true or not, what is true is that the black men of our culture (US and abroad) are dying from AIDS at a much more alarming rate than any other race. We had better figure out what is ensnaring these precious young men quick or, as a black race, our future is in deep trouble. Already more black children are born out of wedlock than any other race. Is that nature, too? I think not.

    Whatever the answer is, I know what the answer is not: We do not need to do ANYTHING to encourage young black men, or older black men for that matter, that ingesting, or otherwise assimilating fecal matter into their body (no matter how “pleasurable” it seems) is anything other than a death sentence for them.

  8. It would seem that Darian had a few homosexual issues his self. Darian do you remember why God destroyed Sodom And Gomorrah? I’m shocked that a man that claims to be a man of God would do a part in a movie like this. What has our pulpits come to? They will stand before God one day and He will say depart from me I knew you not

  9. GCMW:

    You guys are powerful, and on point. Some people want to believe parts of the bible. Human behavior does not change God’s laws. I also believe that gay people should have every right they want.

    BUT the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. Revelation 21:8

    Some people have to die twice… They might as well live it up now.

  10. Let’s let the Bible speak for itself. When in doubt God’s word has the answer.
    Romans 1:18-28

    I’ve never in all my 50+ years of listening to preachers, bishops, elders, reverends, singers etc. heard this scripture. (Except from Jehovah’s Witnesses) Probably because it gets right to the point. If it were ever taught and used as support to show that God has given them over to a depraved mind to think they are right and that God says they are deserving of death, the church would suffer the loss of hundreds of thousands of members. And you know they ain’t about to mess with their tithes and MONEY!

  11. i agree with the letter i saw the movie i do not see the point of the movie.the movie seems like a comedy nothing related to christ.what was hids point of being in the movie he does no withnessing that show he did the movie for the money and he supports gay people.we all gave bobby jones the benfits of thout but he show that theirs something fishey going on with him.i just don’t understand mabey this is his way of comming out and who know mabey his members supports him and his lifstyle he need to stop preaching to the people cause he is sending the wrong message someone mad a point he do need to call his show bobby jones gospel talent hr mabey he will get more respect and we will know its all for show

  12. Why have not our respected “prophets” of today like: Rod Parsley, John Hagee, Eddie Long, Prophet Clement, Joyce Myer, etc. the list goes on and on;spoken on this issue and publicaly said something about this man’s actions? If what Dr. Jones is doing in the public eye then the so-called mega ministries and preachers should address this sin issue and call sin-for sin and tell this person to REPENT>

    I do repent if our web sit is still under construction
