Should Prince Songs Be Turned into Gospel Songs? Trey McLaughlin Did [VIDEO]
I’m sorry but I hate when the church does this. I don’t think its right to change secular songs into gospel songs. A gospel group leader Trey McLaughlin thought it was ok when he changed Prince’s “I Would Die For You” into a gospel song called “Jesus Die for You”. For one, its tapping into the spirit of the song: Secularization. It’s worldly as it comes and then the church thinks its ok to change it into a gospel song. We can’t change secular into gospel and use the same beats and rhythms and call it gospel.

Authorities Confirm Gospel Singer Marvin Sapp As Primary Suspect In Case Of Missing Doctor
We know that the police have stopped looking at Marvin Sapp as a suspect in the woman who allegedly stalked him named Teleka Patrick. We still believe Marvin Sapp has something to do with her disappearance and possibly her death. There is no way he can just be thrown off the case when it definitely appeared to be a cover up.
We certainly feel like he had the church and anyone else at his disposal who would make sure his involvement disappeared out of thin air. We will update you when we find more on a possible cover up.

How The Church Mistaken the “Anointing Vs. Talent” of Pastors and Gospel Artists

He can move our spirits and warm our hearts in a way that surely is the anointing of God.
But what would you say if it wasn’t the anointing but more like talent?
