Despite making a colossal error by appearing in and endorsing a homosexual movie, Bobby Jones is going on with his gospel show. Jones is best known for his 25 year run on BET.
Jones refused to acknowledge the calls for repentance for his enthusiastic endorsement of the movie’s message that homosexuality is normal and should be accepted by the church.
What’s even more disturbing is that the roster of so called gospel stars currently in heavy rotation on Jones gospel entertainment show (emphasis on entertainment) have been just as mum. Like the klan’s good ole boy network of the civil rights era, industry artists like The Clark Sisters, Martha Munizzi, Tye Tribbet, J Mossand others havent said a word. How could they? The homosexuals pulling the strings behind the scenes of the gospel music industry would blackball them without a second thought. It highlights why reform of the gospel music industry will never happen from anyone you are currently seeing on television.
The Gospel Music Channel the “Christian MTV” was falling over itself on announcing that on May 4 Jones would “bring his explosive and colorful personality” to their network via another reality show entitled “Bobby Jones Next Generation.” With all the talk of “stars” and “performers” today’s bastardized gospel music industry has little to do with Jesus (except to co-opt his name to sell records.) and more with ego-driven personalities. If you think thats exaggeration, just look how those in the gospel music industry snorkle for pompous, “regal sounding” titles: “King of Gospel”, “Prince of Praise”, “Ambassador of Gospel”, “Crown Prince of Praise”, “Queen of Gospel”, “Rose of Gospel”, “Princess of Praise”, ad naseum.
These titles do nothing but divert attention away from the REAL KING, Jesus and the REAL PRINCE of Peace, Jesus. It diverts attention away from the fact that we are called to be AMBASSADORS of the Kingdom of God, not the gospel music industry.
“We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.”
(2 Corinthians 5:20)
Said Jones: “As I do with all my other endeavors, I plan to immerse myself in the new show, and I hope that it will be uplifting, joyous and meaningful for GMC viewers.
Yes, the SHOW must go on. With or without Jesus, the SHOW must go on.
