Snoop

 

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.

 

BE BLESSTIFIED!

God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
