THE CHANGING OF THE GUARD… THE SECULAR TAKING OVER THE CHRISTIAN WORLD… SHIRLEY CAESAR’S DRESS AT THE GRAMMYS…

Yeah, I remember the days when you could not sit in a black church with your skirt riding hqdefaultall the way up to your hips… not even while sitting in the back row.

But sadly those days are gone.   And back in the day it didn’t matter what you were wearing in our church they trained you that you could not sit like some man in a cowboy movie…  or anywhere else, and I do mean anywhere.   They trained us to be ladies… and to sit like ladies.0607-Savage-BlackChurch-550x3581

I just recently saw a picture of 1 of our general board bishop’s wife who was sitting with her legs wide open.

And it did not matter what you had on… since in our church you were never suppose to have on pants anyway.   Nor did it matter where you were.   Agains, they trained us to be ladies and to always sit with our ashanti-3.jpglegs closed.

Sitting with your legs wide open was just not tolerated.  It was not an option …nor our clothes pulled all the up on us so people could see everything we had either.

But today is a different story.

Even these preachers… young and old… are marrying worldly women who have never had any type or form of church training.   Then how are they …these women to know how to train any women in the churches they are becoming the first lady of how they should carry and hold Meagan-Good-Bet-Awards-2013themselves… if the first lady does not know?

Oh, I see where they all have start to carry large handkerchiefs to throw across their legs now.  But that can’t hide what is going on above …in the exposing of their breasts.

Everybody it seems want to be naked.    I take that saying from my father… who called any woman not dressed appropriately ‘naked.’  And I guess daddy was right… because the more and more as time has progressed
the more ‘naked’ they have become.16729487_10207929340142286_941661490743467775_n

Take long time gospel music queen Shirley Caesar at this past Grammy’s and what she was wearing.  But if the truth be told Shirley’s shoulder lines have been dropping for a while.

1434034_tsb_sexy_jpgc03ecd522f38eb8c4009b5cd08900855It is 1 thing for the hot little floozies on the corner to be dressed in nothing, but to see gospel legends to begin to strut their stuff is a bit too too too much.   Particularly when they are old women and women who had been highly respected in the
gospel world for years, such as Mother and Pastor 1482230345ey-caesarShirley Caesar.

76eb43abb5b5a2949184fec249dd147aAnd you have these pastors who are marrying women who they are proud to flaunt on their arm and during church services, women who look like they could be in the local club or bar… sitting on a bar stool and inviting any old body to come and taste some of their cheap goods.

2012+BET+Awards+Red+Carpet+1weNNFtZKSXlI was trying to find this dress I had seen Yolanda Adams wear some years 340d09308e664af669482111919e10ebago.   It made me wonder as to whether or not she too had decided to leave the gospel world for secular music fairyland?

It is one thing when you watch the Oscars or whatever and see these women who are not saved… but when the unsaved seem to display more discretion in their dress than some of these gospel divas… then there is a problem.

20130208-062721How could anyone forsake such a standard and code of the church as to the proper dress of a religious or church woman.   Are not these things spoken of in the Bible as to what is or bui38is not acceptable?

So, then why would Shirley Caesar after years of covering up properly while in public stoop to what she put on for the Grammys this year.   When she saw it she had to known, (1) that that dress was not first of all age appropriate for her, and (2) that it was certainly not something she should have put on…exposing her breast as it did.

Shirley-Cesar-1481389760-640x465For years Shirley Caesar had held up the standard for women in the gospel world.   A ACH003247827.1354683344.580x580standard she was taught by those who had come before her… and had undoubtedly been in  the church in which she grew up in… as many of us had been trained and nurtured.   To wear our clothes as to not intrigue anybody.  Nothing hanging off your shoulders, no slits ShirleyCaesarStandsOnHerNewlyUnveiledHollywoodWalkOfFameStar-238x300up the side, especially nothing too short or anywhere above the knee… and certainly nothing exposing our breasts.

To this very day I find it hard for me to want to walk into a church… any church with a pair of pants on.   Though I only wear pants occasionally… more or less sweat pants when I do.  But my training was women did not wear pants.

article-0-16BD736B000005DC-945_638x821I was also trained that you just did not walk across the pulpit… for it was holy ground.   Even if I am summon to come into the pulpit I go reluctantly… and if I am asked to say something or to speak… I prefer to do from the floor and not in the pulpit.   It is not that I am not saved… erica-campbellsbut God declared certain areas in his sanctuary to be holy
or holy… where only the high priest was allowed enter.   Since we no longer have those inter chambers that only the high priest could enter into… we do still have His pulpit.   And it is holy.

So, when I see this trend where not only are gospel singers moving towards Kim-Burrell-2_652x367the secular world… just as R&B singers went towards becoming crossover artists… or better known to become pop artists.   The gospel artist today are also forsaking not only their roots …their music and their original audience, which fed and celebrated them 2280962for years… and now they are casting them aside and their clothes to go half naked before the world… just like the world.

We have cast off following God… to chase mammon and all his friends.

maxresdefaultWell, see how much music Shirley will continue sell.   I don’t think it will come anywhere near what she used to do… for she has forgotten the Lord her God.   And we all know how He handles things like that….yolanda-adams-bet-awards-2012-01

article-2555030-1B511DB600000578-535_634x710I personally do not see what is wrong with representing the Lord and/or the Kingdom of God as we should… because we honor Him.   If we love Him and Yolanda-Adams-1not the world… then why would you want to follow the ways of the world?my picture croped

“Choose ye whom ye will serve.”

Well, God bless….    We’re back into cold weather now.   But then it is March so it would be no surprise if between now and some time in April we get dumped with a ton of snow.

So,  tell your friends, co-workers and family… everybody even the man down the street and … “pass it on… ” http://www.bsmith101.wordpress.com ©2017
