High profile Gospel artist and pastor, Kim Burrell has come under heavy attack across social media after a video of her preaching about homosexuality was was leaked. The video has since gone viral with the 44-year-old accused of using hateful speech.
Kim Burrell may be under fire today and being used as an example to silence the church about preaching the word, but be reminded this war is beyond Kim Burrell because it is a war against Christianity. There is reason for us all to be concerned because there is a demand for our faith and belief to be compromised. It’s not enough that your beliefs can’t influence society; you must also embrace society’s beliefs. As Jonah Goldberg noted in USA Today, the opposition to many Christian values has become an “if you’re not with us, you’re against us” mentality.
Whilst others remain silent or simply join in the persecution and condemnation of Minister Kim Burrell, know that God cannot be mocked. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, whilst in the blazing furnace remained courageous and their faith was intact and now have become legendary.
Our message to Kim Burrell is of support and encouragement. Today you may be a captive of Hollywood and Social media but we want to remind you of the daring exploits of Daniel. Daniel’s dreams and his faith in God, even in the face of death in the lion’s den he was not shaken.
What you have in common with the above mention is that, they too were once captives of the Babylonians: But God was in there situation as He is in yours. Remain steadfast and don’t apologise or compromise, you are sponsored by Grace and nothing can destroy what God is holding together. You serve an all sufficient God.
God bless and keep you
