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

Isn’t it amazing how some gospel artists can ‘move us’ in the spirit? They stir up some feeling or emotion in us that equates in our minds as the anointing of God. How about our a sermon from a pastor?

[NEW] How Gay Gospel Artists Left a Tainted Legacy for Today’s Generation [Part 2]
This is part two of this article about how gay gospel artists left a tainted legacy for our generation today.

Gospel music has turned into a industry of hefty money makers and revolutionaries. Though many artists from the early 1960’s and earlier sang gospel music because they ‘love the Lord’, grew up in the church and wanted to spread the gospel, it quickly turned into a money making machine that created more than just records.

Let’s speak on the sexual part because this is what is taking over our society today through homosexuality and gay rights.

We’ve had this weighing heavy on our hearts when it comes to gospel artists from yesteryear and the impact it has on our generation today. When we speak of our generation, we do mean for all of us living today not just for the young folk, as some may believe.
