Yesterday, I came across this youtube video of Sunday’s Bobby Jones Gospel Show on BET. Reading the comments, one would think that the Lord himself had descended with a shout and the trump of God. The consensus of those commenting was that the last time they “had church” like this on BJG was back when Moses parted the red sea (sarcasm needed to make the point).
From what I can see, the hype over the show came not because people repented and turned from their sins, but because there was a lot of pentecostal-flavored histronics, better known as “shouting and dancing”. The song, “One More Chance” by Ricky Dillard and his group New G(eneration) had a powerful message. But I failed to see how someone as controversial as Ricky Dillard (Dilliard performed on an album benefitting the LA Gay and Lesbian Center) could sing such a song and continue on as if it is nothing but simply a good, hot church performance. He says at the end, “Some of yall dont know your cue.” I guess the “cue” wasn’t to repent, but to dance more.
They would not allow my comment which questioned where Bobby Jones was and why the lead singer conveniently forgot to sing/preach about homosexuality which was such an obvious transgression? Did she avoid it because of Bobby Jones and Ricky Dillard?
After looking at the video and reading the comments here, tell us what you think.
