Well folks, it looks we have another situation going on in this world we call gospel music or more so the “church world.”Â I’ve always maintained and believed that although our beliefs and value systems are and should be different than the rest of the world, at the end of the day, this is the world we live in… (I know a few of the saints will take it a step further and go “we’re in this world, but not of this world.”! Ha! But it’s true.) So with that, the church is simply a smaller sample of the larger world and will have many of the same elements. You have nice people in the world; you’ll have nice people in church. You have mean people in the world; you’ll have mean people in church. You’ll have liars, cheaters, thieves and freaks in the world at large, and the church has some of those too. So, needless to say I guess that the church isn’t immune to legal issues.

Before I begin, I’d like to say that this situationÂ is a perfect example of why so many people are jaded and/or can’t be bothered with “church.”Â You’ll see what I mean. Read the rest of this entry »
