Who Are We Really Looking For?
Watch “Finding God at a Beyoncé Mass” on YouTube
Within the last two generations, secular music has been boosted by gospel artists and we were good with it; loving the contemporary sounds as the name of GOD is mentioned less. Now we are mad at this video and other scenarios alike – claiming it’s gone too far. When the door was opened and the cross-over took place what did we think was next? Some of the comments mentioned in regards to this video state that this is idolatry at its best. Well, truth is, we idolize everyday with TV, music, food, money, sex and so much more. Their blatant false worship is just as wrong as our subtle and often disguised ones. So while we are in scrutinizing/judging mode – might want to make sure we self-analyze… is our TEMPLE completely together and in order?
GOD will be coming for the PURE Church! Clearly we are missing the mark as what we have been doing is not IT – long before this video. Churches with their traditions and rituals… folks steadily selecting scriptures out of content to justify and mold into their sanctimonious beliefs… folks self-absorbed with titles and positions… bi-polar personalities (act one way inside the church and another outside)… CONDITIONAL LOVE (because we have been brainwashed to believe that love feels good all of the time)…and the list can go on. How do we profess our LOVE for GOD when we can’t love our brother and sister (and the thought of loving our enemies is atrocious and preposterous)…when we are stuck in the dark depths of bitterness, unforgiveness and anger… when we tread in carnal mindedness and refuse to change our behavior and thought process?
LORD, please forgive us if ANY of our actions or comments has been contradicting to YOU-Selah.
Words are meaningless without intent! We can pray all day for strength to change; however, our actions must accompany the desire to do so or else we are only abusing the GRACE! ~ Respectfully, LanDenise
