Many people have been eager to offer their opinion on Snoop Dogg doing a Gospel album. It’s not my place to judge who God chooses to use. I will say this…


  1. Many of our most beloved Psalms were inspired by God through a man who killed thousands of people, and had a man killed so he could have his wife (King David)
  2. It’s interesting how some of the same church people who accepted R. Kelly’s, “I Believe I Can I Can Fly”…some even including it in worship are critical of a Christian or Gospel artist who sings a love song. (Song of Solomon proves there’s nothing wrong with a love song, especially in a Christians marriage).
  3. Even though God strictly forbids the homosexual lifestyle along with other sins, many of the Gospel songs that touch the hearts of countless people, and have even led people to Christ were very likely written by homosexuals. (That by no means excuses or justifies the sin, but the truth is the truth).
  4. Even the apostle Paul said that some preach with ungodly motives and others with a sincere heart…but he was just thankful that Christ was preached and despite the selfish motives, people received the word.

Philippians 1:15-18 (NKJV)

15 Some indeed preach Christ even from envy and strife, and some also from goodwill: 16 The former[a] preach Christ from selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my chains; 17 but the latter out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel. 18 What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is preached; and in this I rejoice, yes, and will rejoice.

So, if Snoop Dogg recording a Gospel song(s) that sincerely inspires someone or strengthens someone’s connection to God…then to God be the Glory. It’s not my place, not matter how evident it may seem to me by his current and past ‘fruit’, to judge what is in Mr. Calvin Broadus Jr.’s (Snoop Dogg’s) heart. That is between him and God.





You finally got it! That promotion you worked so hard for, or it may be that you didn’t earn or deserve it. Either way, you got it.

The first thing you want to do is make sure that it’s from God. But, how can you tell? It’s really very easy.

Here are 7 quick ways to tell whether your promotion or job is a blessing or a curse in disguise.

Make sure the expectations of your new duties don’t…

  1. Make you behave contrary to God’s will.

  2. Make your compromise God’s character and integrity.

  3. Prevent you from attending regular worship service.

  4. Force you to make a choice between your career/occupation and your calling.

  5. Force you to be disrespectful to others

  6. Force you to endorse, encourage or excuse ungodly lifestyles.

  7. Did you pray about it first?

Number 7 is really big. I probably should have put it first, but it would have messed up my transition:-) How can God bless something that you didn’t pray about first? Making any decision, but especially big decisions without God is foolishly stepping out on your own.

Remember, no matter what your role, job title, or job description…you are God’s representative at work. You are His ambassador…

2 Corinthians 5:20(NKJV)

20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.

Even in an ungodly culture, God has sent you behind enemy lines to set the standard of behavior in the most difficult circumstances.

If God gave it to you…Congratulations!

If not, you would be better off with less money if it comes between you and God. And, any influence you may have lost in the world is multiplies in God’s Kingdom.

Mark 8:36-37 (NKJV)

36 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?37 Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
