More gospel music industry workers are coming out and embracing the seductive heresy of gay theology (marketed as inclusive, progressive religion) as the church in America continues its overall slide into apostasy. GCM Watch has documented the fornication of black gospel music industry with homosexuality for quite some time and now its illegitimate children are coming of age. But does it matter?
The latest to sign up for a gay church gig: Campbell and Daryl Coley, a black gospel music industry worker who begin his career singing backup vocals for famed 70s drag performer “Sylvester”. Campbell and Coley appeared at the first conference of the United Progressive Pentecostal Church (click photo to enlarge) held in Atlanta mid June.
Sources told GCM Watch that former prophetess turned “empowerment” guru Juanita Bynum was present at a meeting of the same organization, but was unclear of her purpose there.
The UPPC as it is called, is an obvious scratch off name from the United Pentecostal Church (UPC), aping its apostolic doctrine and pentecostal church services but including a belief that homosexuality is acceptable sexual expression for Christians.
A Los Angeles music minister told GCM Watch he believes this is one of the crisis issues of today’s church.
“I think they [black gospel artists] are continually pushing the envelope. I can even see them coming to convocation to protest because they are gaining more emphathy in the church. And they feel justified. I’m just waiting for the day when a gospel artist will openly announce his or her same-sex marriage. I wonder what will happen then?”, said Rev. Rod Hines.
In a 2001 interview with GospelFlava, Coley decried the commercialism controlling gospel music.
“Sure it can be musical, it can be colorful, but it needs to maintain a separatism from what’s already out there. I think the industry, to be very frank, is embracing more commercialism than it is spiritual aspects. And I think it’s because those that are spiritual are not in charge. They finally realized that Gospel music is very marketable, they looked at the numbers and saw that millions were being made from Gospel. “
But shouldn’t Coley also recognize that the gay christian movement is under the control of something other than Christ? Perhaps all of this is just about a paid performance to them. If it is, then it should be called what it is: religious blackface shows.
For those who think there’s nothing wrong with “ministering” at a gay church its a flagrant disobedience to the scriptures.
1 Corinthians 5:9-11
I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people. Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner–not even to eat with such a person.
Some have claimed that if God says go, you should go. I would agree, but with several conditions. (1) We would need to first acknowledge that such individuals are living in open rebellion to the will of God (2) they are teaching false doctrine and leading others to hell and should be admonished to repent (3) acknowledge that God has never sent someone to such a group of people to enjoy VIP parties and get compensated yet no repentance occurs. What’s more the Word of God is clear: two people cannot walk together unless they are in agreement.
