Da Truth Admits To Affair!
“in light of a moral indiscretion in my personal life, I will be taking a sabbatical from music ministry and teaching upon fulfilling my current commitments to work closely with my pastor, church, and restoration team.”
When we sin and fall down is it best to just be quiet about it and let it be discovered or put it out there and let’s deal with it? What’s done in the dark always comes to the light…Da’ Truth could have hide this from his wife and the public but he chose not to….But by taking this path it seem to say that he’s more honest, more repentant and more mindful of the path to recovery and restoration…Mine-you he was the first one to come forward and admit that he fell…. I respect Da Truth a lot more because he came out and said something… Right now, there’s talk going around about Tye Tribbett…Right now he’s not acknowledging or admitting to anything…But if it turn out that he did get someone pregnant who was not his wife and he has lied and denied his sin and wouldn’t take responsibility for his actions, let’s just say I’m not gonna be a fan any more….That’s how Jay Moss lost me as a fan of his music….You can not receive from someone you don’t respect bottom line….Da Truth is not justifiying his actions… he acknowledges they’re wrong and he’s not leading people in the wrong direction by kind of excusing his behavior…. Out of all the mess that’s come to light lately.. so far.. this one has been handled the best….Right now marriage is under attack! http://theoldblackchurch.blogspot.com/2009/11/da-truth-admits-to-affair.html
Ask yourself why?
Matthew 14v27 says,”….STRIKE THE SHEPHERD AND THE SHEEP WILL BE SCATTERED.”
The enemy could come after each and every one of us individually but he knows his time is alomost up. The Bible says like a thief comes in the night so shall the son of man. No one knows the exact day of his coming but from the state of the world we know that the coming is near. Thus for the devil to beat you he attacks your LEADERS, those who teach you the word. Those who pray and fast for you and encourage you to hold on and trust in the Lord even when you think there is no hope. Unfortunately we seem to forget that they are only human. They have weakness just like we do. King David a man whom we all admire did at some point fall as well. He fell into lust and adultery as well as having the blood of his soldier Uriah on his hands. This was not an easy time for him when the Lord sent the prophet Nathan to tell him that he had wronged him. He dropped to his knees and wept. He sought the Lord and asked for forgiveness and the Lord our God forgave him.
If our Righteous God who knows no sin can forgive them. Who are you not to forgive them. All of a sudden we forget what they have done for us we look away from all good and focus on these short coming. The enemy is winning but we are too arrogant and self righteous to see this. If a church scatters will the non-believers consider joining us? What of if we would stick together as the BODY of Christ and seek the Lord and intercede for these leaders. Where there is unity God commands his blessing. Does the eye leave the head because it is aching? Does the toe leave the leg when it bleeds? Why then does the body of Christ break apart when a part is troubled? Is it not Jesus our Lord who said they should know us by the love that we have one for another?
I think it’s time we grew up and not be BABY Christian for ever. Take your place and STOP running all over the place like a headless chicken…Do not be like a LEAF that is SHAKEN by every WIND that BLOWS, instead be deeply ROOTED in your FAITH like MOUNT ZION. Come rain come thunder it is not shaken…AMEN
I believe this has ministered to you share it with some believers and edify the body of Christ.
God Bless and Much Love
