Repent Gospel Artists: Can Gospel’s Karen Clark Sheard and Sister Dorinda Really Give Advice to the Church?
We have been discussing in our meetings that we really need to speak more on gospel artists who are really not showing a difference in the church from what’s going on in the world. It never ceases to amaze us how gospel artists think they are ministering to the church and young people but how are they showing a difference between how they perform and how secular artists perform? These days- you really can’t find many gospel artists doing it the right way.
Well, before we go into that we just want to ask a question: Can a gospel artist really give advice on how people should dress in the church these days? We ask this question because apparently gospel artists Karen Clark Sheard and sister Dorinda Clark Cole feel they have the expertise to do so. Now, we’ll give them credit for singing gospel music since they were young children but oh how things have changed.
On the first video below, both sisters are being asked to address how women should dress in the church. They both covered the areas of women covering themselves more and wearing “spanks” and girdles namely in front of Karen’s husband, Bishop Sheard.
But we find an issue with them making any statements about how the church should dress. We do agree with their statements but if they do worldly dances and “crunk” in their performances, can they really speak and be effectively heard?
We thank God for Youtube because you can find just about anything you want to prove a point. We found other videos of Karen dancing inappropriately on stage to so called gospel songs. The Clark Sisters have also collaborated with rapper and producer Missy Elliot on their albums. So how can anyone minister effectively and be respected about dress and attire, when gospel artists are singing and dancing like all other hip hip artists in the world? The answer is they can’t do it. Young women who are rebuked for dressing skimpily in church can’t respect gospel artists or church leaders when they allow other inappropriate things in the church. This is just how people think.
If we really want people to respect us and do what is right, we have to SHOW A DIFFERENCE in everything we do. Then and only at the time, will our followers see the light of Jesus shining on us and will do what we do for God.

(NOTE: We apologize but the video below was removed and quickly set to private mode just hours after we posted this. Apparently, the owner of the Youtube account took to offense what we stated. This clearly gives the body of Christ a message of denial and not wanting us to discuss the accountability of living a righteous life overall.)
