According to an article written by thegospelguru.com “Gospel powerhouse Kierra Sheard’s BRL Experience 2013 drew to a close last night! While there, Sheard showcased new music from her forthcoming album as well as a christian rendition of a Kendrick Lamar hit. Check out the 26 year old rock out to her rendition of Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe.”

It seems as though every time a celebrity mentions the word sin, God, Jesus or Church in their lyrics we some how find a way to embrace their music but avoid addressing their lifestyle. We use code words & cliches like “much grace, don’t judge and God ain’t done with them yet”. In the music and entertainment industry, the minute a celebrity quotes a scripture we lift them up, invite them to our platforms and sing their songs.

Lecrae Moore with Kendrick Lamar - in "the mission fields doing indigenous missionary work."

Lecrae Moore with Kendrick Lamar – in “the mission fields doing indigenous missionary work.”

Lamar is an up and coming rapper who mixes his brand of music with sacrilegious themes and clever hooks. He was first discovered by Lady Gaga.

With his first album still climbing the charts, popular “christian Hiphop” artist such as  Lecrae, Propaganda and others have publicly express their affections towards Lamar’s brand of rap music and/or ability to perform 16 bars. But getting back to Sheard, lets carefully examine the original lyrics to the song she covered/remixed during her performance.

 

 

[Hook] I am a sinner who’s probably gonna sin again
Lord forgive me, Lord forgive me things I don’t understand
Sometimes I need to be alone
B**** don’t kill my vibe, b**** don’t kill my vibe
I can feel your energy from two planets away
I got my drink, I got my music
I would share it but today I’m yelling
B**** don’t kill my vibe, b**** don’t kill my vibe
B****don’t kill my vibe, b****don’t kill my vibe

[Verse 1] Look inside of my soul and you can find gold and maybe get rich
Look inside of your soul and you can find out it never exist
I can feel the changes, I can feel a new life
I always knew life can be dangerous
I can say that I like a challenge and you to me is painless
You don’t know what pain is
How can I paint this picture when the color blind is hanging with you
Fell on my face and awoke with a scar
Another mistake living deep in my heart
Wear it on top of my sleeve in a flick
I can admit that it did look like yours
Why you resent every making of this
Tell me your purpose is petty again
But even a small lighter can burn a bridge
Even a small lighter can burn a bridge

[Bridge] I can feel the changes
I can feel the new people around me just want to be famous
You can see that my city found me then put me on stages
To me that’s amazing
To you that’s a quick check with all disrespect let me say this

[Hook]

[Verse 2] I’m trying to keep it alive and not compromise the feeling we love
You’re trying to keep it deprived and only co-sign what radio does
And I’m looking right past you
We live in a world, we live in a world on two different axles
You live in a world, you living behind the mirror
I know what you scared of, the feeling of feeling emotions inferior
This s*** vital, I know you had to
This s*** is vital, I know you had to
To die in a pitiful vain, tell me a watch and a chain
Is way more believable, give me a feasible gain
Rather a seasonal name, I’ll let the people know this is something you can blame
On yourselves you can remain stuck in a box
I’mma break out and then hide every lock
I’mma break out and then hide every lock

[Bridge] + [Hook]

[Outro] You ain’t heard a chorus like this in a long time
Don’t you see that long line
And they waiting on Kendrick like the first and the fifteenth
Threes in the air I can see you are, in sync
Hide your feelings, hide your feelings now what you better do
I’ll take your girlfriend and put that p***** on a pedestal
B****don’t kill my vibe, B**** don’t kill my vibe
Walk out the door and they scream it’s alive
My New Year’s resolution is to stop all the pollution
Talk too mother***** much, I got my drink I got my music
I say B****don’t kill my vibe, B****don’t kill my vibe
B**** don’t kill my vibe, B**** don’t kill my vibe

[Death to Molly]

Fanatics respond to Kierra's remix

“I thought this song was perfect, don’t repeat what he (Kendrick Lamar) though he said what he said in the lyrics,”  said Sheard. “There was a struggle there, even in Kedricks lyrics. Theres a struggle there, a desire to want to be right. Because he admitted that I’m (Lamar) a sinner and he’s probably gonna go do it again”… Sheard without a doubt had to first at least learn the song before she created her own version.kendrick-lamar-jay-z

In the video (original video) you saw a method often used called text painting. Text painting – the style of music should match what the words are trying to say. In this case the imagery tell of several mixed messages.

The video or lyrics don’t reflect repentance nor does it emulate the gospel as we know it. As a matter of fact they mock water baptism as it is written in scripture. So for Sheard to justify her remix version “Flesh Don’t Kill My Vibe!” is either an insult  to the gospel we preach or she’s just that naive. The music (song) is sick or immoral and can not be regurgitated into to something appropriate for church or ministry.

Now in this case adding lyrics that contain a christian ideology or theology doesn’t change the original intent or vehicle. Religious jargon with immoral music all together mixes influences.

Daniel 3:4-6 says, “Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages, That at what time ye hear the sound of the CORNET, FLUTE, HARP, SACKBUT, PSALTERY, DULCIMER, and ALL KINDS OF MUSIC, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up: And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.” There was a mixture of sounds as describe that was familiar to the children of Israel and unto the pagans. So we’ve taken the sound of the world under false pretense, thinking we’re getting people to acknowledge God. But “when they hear the sound, the acknowledge Kendrick Lamar.”

Sheard has summons what she’s serenade. She took the music of a song with a message that’s  perverted and made an attempt to change the message to positive or inspirational (gospel). It’s  impossible to do because your brain has already accepted the songs message. You mind has mind stamped “B*** don’t kill my vibe” frequencies and related them to the original message. (alcohol, sex, death) It is impossible to change that stamp, even though she sung new words – “flesh don’t kill my vibe” with her mouth, her body and chemicals have recorded Kendrick Lamar’s original message, its still prevalent in mind of the listener.

What she has done in this case is offer her platform to Lamar by affirming his influence and music. Now youth and young adults if not already in church, will go out and purchase his music. An album full of corrupt communication, sexual immorality and by the way, a few religious references and themes.

The world already knows they are sinners so why are we so fascinated with them when they are content with their spiritual condition.  Everyone is waging the christian flag but are not converted and because of our compromise and desire to be where they are – they never witness Christ the way they are suppose to. What they see is the same spirit that’s in them.  But sadly this is once again a failed attempt at trying to be relevant.

1002975_10151448531130741_1556158601_n

This is grievous. The so called gospel industry continues to mix the worlds song before the people justifying it as ministry. A bad cocktail (pun intended). Sheard is deceived just like many who keep trying to manipulate people into accepting their music.  What’s next a Two Chain remix, how about a Drake or Nicki Minaj version. Have we become more concern with covering and remixing the worlds music than honoring God. It is not our mix that draws them, its the HOLY SPIRIT. So if your music reflex an anti-christ spirit then who’s being drawn back to what?

In Ezekiel Chapter 40 God judged the Levites for taking musical talent from the Chaldeans. They took what belong to the heathens. Recruiting their  practices and talents. (Ezekiel 44:12-13 Because they ministered unto them before their idols, and caused the house of Israel to fall into iniquity (perversion) therefore have I lifted up mine hand against them, said the Lord God, and they shall bear their iniquity And they shall not come near unto me, to do the office of a priest unto me, nor to come near to any of my holy things, in the most holy place: but they shall bear their shame, and their abominations which they have committed.) Although there are no longer Levitical priest there are still consequences when we mix influences. It’s evident that Sheard wasn’t singing unto the Lord a new song but one of old wineskins full of perversion.  (2 Corinthians 6:17, 1 John 2:15-17, Ephesians 5:19)

Ri’Shard | Oh my gosh!!! Ya’ll are soo judgmental. Its MUSIC!!! It aint like she sang the lyrics. She REVAMPED AND DID IT TO GLORIFY GOD!! SHE DIDNT GET UP AND COVER THE EXACT SONG!! SHE TOOK THE WORDS, AND USED IT TO ATTRACT THE YOUNGER GENERATION. The BRL Conference is a youth conference! Most of the kids there were under 18 I promise you that they listen to the song the original version! Their are certain things that attract certain people to the word. It was something to attract to the youth.

Wayne harmon I will be the first to say it. This “ministry” does nothing but harm people. If there is so much to grieve about in this, why don’t you pray for her if you this is so wrong. We as Christians quickly throw stones, and others jump on the bandwagon because they lack the strength to stand on their own and come up with an independent opinion. Again if you feel this way stop capitalizing and start praying. We are ONE BODY, but we cannot be effective if we continue to cut off the head to spite the face.

Marcell I personally think this is being made into a bigger deal than what it is. I agree, today’s music is going downhill and brainwashing many but I don’t see an issue with her turning the song around and making it about God. Are we not supposed to try to reach those who are unsaved? Too many “Christians” today like to sit on their high horse and look down on those who aren’t saved or aren’t as spiritually mature and THAT is the issue. You never know who could be reached with that song. I also don’t see any issue with Lecrae. How can you make a difference if you only try to interact with those who are saved? It’s time to go out and reach others and bring them into the kingdom of God. Let’s not judge and start acting.

John | I love how yall can judge this lady who u don’t even kno, but ppl can’t commet on how stupid you and this article is. It’s n**** like u that make ppl not want nothing to do with the church, thenget mad when ppl like Kierra try to go where they are and clean up the mess you made. Getcho life! Anybody tryna hear this stupid a***** is just as whack as the n***** who wrote it. Keep ya mouth off ppl you don’t know.

    The church falling away, trying to be exactly like the world. Now the church is in no place to help anyone. The world looks at the church and says, “The church is mimicking us, so we’re good, we don’t have to change, we don’t have anything to fix.” its sad. the church has completely lost its way. It’s hard to find a true church of God. Lets just call it what it is, a “World Church” that accepts any and everything.

  2. rebecca

    My jaw is so low down to the ground I can’t even bring it back up!!!!!! She’s gonna include God into this mess???? The video shows Kendrick and his friends standing before a casket and dancing and drinking not mention Kendrick being “baptized” in liquor and she’s gonna make some sort of connection between that and God????????????? Then she says sometimes its not the devil that should be crucified but ourselves?????? WHAT HAS THE WORLD COME TO!!!!!!! I bet the demons were having the time of their lives laughing themselves silly for all that utter nonsense!!!!!!!! It just shocks me still that many could be so misguided!!!!!!! Going as far as to defend satan!! Wow!!!! I just cannot believe this!!!!!

  3. Tony

    christian artist just dont get it…..YOU CANT TURN A SECULAR SONG INTO A GOSPEL SONG! covers just aresnt going to work. her message and what shes saying about the christian struggle is relavent and would have been conveyed better if she made her own music, but the fact that she covered lamars song just did not work and messed it all up!

  4. Angela Wright

    You are totally right on this, i used to sing in Choirs in several churches, we did a lot of research on the Levitical Priesthood,so I kn ow what you are saying is true, you mentioned the so many things that i have studied,the sound the inferences of the sounds in relationship to the original thought,there is so much to that! those secular sounds have satanic beats,words,tempos,rhymes and all over content,some of these are actually chanted over. keep up the good work!

  5. Anthony

    This season is a season of fire you will either be on fire for GOD or for the enemy(devil).i see a lot of so called christians doing anything to get money and calling it Holy unto GOD or worship.its all self worship and of this world these songs are not new songs for worship and praise these people just wanna be seen.its entertainment for the flesh not worship for the MOST HIGH GOD pray for them in JESUS name.

  6. Judy Milner

    I knew this was coming when the reality show “The Sheards” aired. J Drew was already given over to the world with his previous album & Kiara was on there saying she wanted to be like ” Beyonce”. I was stunned that their mother & father would allow. These people are of a reprobate mind. A homosexual I know(George) is also on the show & has bragged about the gay influence & following if the church & the Clark sisters. Everybody wants to be a star! They will die & go to hell for fame…so sad…

  7. D. Preston

    How long will we (the Church) continue to walk between two opinions? We offer up to God strange fire and not the worship He requires. We love the world too much and it shows when we “Praise God”. This is a sad thing. I could not watch the entire video; it made my heart ache. May our eyes continue to open by the truth of The Word of God.

  8. Min. Robert Murrell

    It saddens me in the day we live in when “saved” folks refuse to live holy, sanctified and free from sin. Romans 6 Paul says, being made free from, how can we live any longer in it? He says to also put to death the misdeeds of the flesh and make no provision for it. I wish everyone had a copy of TTBHH or at least one of the volumes, doesn’t matter which one, because you’re going to get the truth of Gospel. Ms. Sheard should no better, her daddy is a preacher, so why folks still want to take from the world instead of using the creativity that God gave us to bless Him. She wasn’t praising God, she was cursing herself by opening up herself to the attack of the enemy. That’s what happens we we subscribe to the enemy’s dainties. We wonder why we can’t stay delivered, or when God delivers us from sin we desire to go right back to Egypt. Jesus delivered us from sin and he gave us the power of the Holy Ghost to stay delivered. Staying delivered is a choice, some of us just don’t want to stay delivered.

  9. Marlon

    Ermm…wow. This is really hurting my head, what is wrong with these “Gospel” artists man??!!! Just Pastor Craig said once “why listen to Lecrae if I can listen to Tupac” (I doubt that’s his exact words but he’ll know what I mean), when I listened to her version, all I can hear in my head during the chorus was “…. dont kill my vibe” it’s just silly, and wrong. It’s time for a boycott believers.

  10. MISS LADY

    That was pure foolishness, but I’m not surprised.

    1) She had to look at her cell phone while singing/rapping to make sure that she didn’t sing the original words.

    2) Most of the musicians that were playing for her also tour with very popular secular artists.

    3) Their church is full of homosexuals.

  11. Patricia

    It is the misconception of believing what the church is. There is so much apostasy that is going on in the buildings that suppose to be a church. Behind some four walls people are being taught that once you are save then you are always save. So, you have folks believing that they can live like the world and still go to heaven. It is the deception that enemy has so cunningly sold. The said thing is people are buying into this foolishness. You can not love God and love the world.

    I Peter 1: 16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

  12. Shawn

    This is sad. I didn’t even think this was a church service. It is painful to watch someone go through this all for the fame and money. Approval addiction is a dangerous drug, and more deadly than most forms of recreational ones out there. Lord help us as your church to stand and remain faithful.

  13. Tip

    She trying to justify using Kendrick’s lyrics at the end of her concert..wow. The youth today are so lost and deceived by strong delusion’s of the secular music industry.

  14. Joseph Edward Nether

    she is of the great falling away,her whole fam is(recording with lesbian missy elliot)so this does not surprise me,the late j.o. patterson openly preached on them all and rebuked him at his last convocation ,they were probably glad he died too,cause since then no but the likes of francis kelly has called them out! everyone else has embraced there harlotry,this is the same jez who performs openly in the homosexual clubs all over atlanta,nope,not surprised at all

  15. shayshay

    Well the sheard familly is all about MONEY and FAME… KeKe was engaged to a some years back to a Pastor but because he didn’t make enough money her father made her break it off with the young Pastor and her father stated that she needed to marry a millionaire. The young man was hurt behind it as well but what can he do but shout and tell the Lord thank You for making away of escape because he would of got in some mess…

  16. shayshay

    dont forget keke and her mother re-did jill scott’s song he loves me but they said it unto the Lord not sure what Lord they are talking about.

  17. Arthur Black

    I like Ex ministry and you all do a great job of exposing evil. However, it seems as if you focus more on the works of the devil, than on Jesus Christ. I rarely if never seen you all preach the gospel, or talk about Christ. Yes we must address the issues going on but point people to Christ. For every problem we must give a solution. I pray that you all take this into consideration. God bless

    1. exministries

      Arthur Black (if thats your real name) it’s very unfortunate that you’ve failed to do your due diligence. To make these kinds of accusations lets us know you don’t know the ministry at all. EX Ministries is a ministry of helps a specialized ministry. Our mission is to equip the body. If you had visited our website http://www.exministries.com you would have found over 300 free downloadable sermons, discipleship training, you would have know about Adamant Believers Council (ABC) – Yes our church and you would also been informed about our efforts in evangelism, intercessory prayer and other ministry involvement. Every ministry group (EX Ministries, ABC and True Church Prospective) preach the entire council of the bible, the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. For nearly 20 years this ministry alone has impacted the lives of young people world-wide. Souls have been saved, marriages/families restored, communities changed and churches transformed. Please be advised. God bless!

  18. Diandra

    People are offended because they enjoy this blasphemy. They like these artists and/or pastors and it shows where they are spiritually. Don’t get mad at The WORD for going forth and exposing, just accept the cut from The Holy Spirit’s sword and get ready for the healing! 😀 Tell it Ex Ministries!! Free us from these lies, disortion and confusion

  19. Chrissy

    This isn’t Kierra’s fault that she has digressed to this but it is the secular “church” that serves a “type” of Christ but not the true and living God. Once we stop labeling these people as gospel artist then it will begin to make sense. They are under a demonic influence called “counterfeit Christianity”. There is no need for the enemy to fight us from the outside because we have let everything from the inside destroy us.

    Understand that a lot of the people who enjoy “living on the fence” support these folks because it makes them comfortable in their own mess. I attended a very well known church in Atlanta and watched a homosexual choir director destroy our music department by sleeping with the male musicians and turning one guy “out”. After the pastor finally “caught the vision” that this dude was evil, they fired him. A few weeks later, I saw this dude singing back up for Karen Clark Sheard on a gospel music show!!! I was appalled and in disbelief.

    I have enjoyed the Clark Sisters throughout the years but it seems as if they lack discernment as to who they connect with. For example, Dorinda sung on Eddie Long’s CD right before he was exposed. Because these people are “mainstream” gospel, they need people to intercede for them. Not to sell more music but that they will get it right before it is too late. I still watch their old performances online but recently it seems as if they are just making music to simply “market” their CDs.

    I challenge everyone here to begin to intercede for their souls. As we look at what the world sees as gospel music artist, it should sadden our hearts.

    It seems as if they lack modern-day Nathan’s in their lives to basically pull them aside and say… HEY… LET’S PRAY ABOUT THIS BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR NEXT CD AND CHECK OUT THE WORD OF GOD… It is a sad day when you have people around you who have a lack for the love of the truth. The Clark Sisters and their children need prayer.

    MANY gospel music artist may stand before the Lord and have helped minister and save many but will ultimately lose their own souls. LORD PLEASE HELP US!

  20. Darkeisha

    You know what I am not mad at exministries for exposing the truth. Honestly Kierra Sheard was my favorite gospel artists, her album free really ministered to me and I felt the anointing was all over her when she sung it. She represents for people around my age bracket but I to have also noticed how she is starting to compromise. When I saw her on 106 and park the other day flipping through the channels my mouth dropped, and I just knew pretty soon I would see an article about kiki on exministries soon enough and I was right smh. I cant argue with scripture and get mad with the ministry because they have called out my favorite gospel artists im just glad that they are taking out the time to open my eyes. I agree 100% with everything this ministry talks about and its not because of person its because of scripture and what it says, if they could not back it up with what God says then yea it would be pointless. My eyes are open enough to see that the majority of the gospel industry is about compromise now these days and its just not the same, and I look at who is producing their music and its the same people who produce the satanic music smh some of this is called common sense, and im so sick of people getting so offended if you come against their favorite gospel or secular artists, the question is why do you not get that way when someone talks or says anything negative about your JESUS??

  21. Fred Rochester

    Great article. Anytime professed believers need to use the words, music arrangements, and lyrics of a worldly song and then revamp it to make it sound like a Christian song, it is an indication that the devil has achieved his goal. No distinction. In other words, people can’t tell the difference between light and darkness.

    God is original. He doesn’t need the former worship leader of heaven to express righteous songs.

    So if you are a professed believer, the place where you will get an original sound from heaven is in prayer and fasting. It’s about getting in the secret place and not come out till you hear from God. Not to mention the fact that you better be clean and holy, free of contaminating influences of sexual immorality of porn and self gratification.

    Otherwise, you are compromised and all you are about it you and not God.

  22. NodReid

    First of all God bless you all @EX Ministries. This is the first time I’m posting on your blog. I live in Barbados and this lacrea poison has infected down here as well. I’m one of the few that stands against this wickedness that started with satan and now they want to offer it to God. That smell would burn the nostrils of God because that worship is pure poison and filth. Now this lady took that filthy song and is trying to pass it off as gospel???? Lord have mercy. But as a brother said in the comments, the apostasy is well in motion. The falling away is in full swing just to gain the world and loose their souls,what ignorance! EX Ministries please know this, for every hundred that is against you, 50 is standing with you. Just as Elijah thought he was the last prophet, God had some reserved for Himself. Continue to expose these servants of the devil who pose as angles of light. I stand with you brothers and sisters. Remember God is the only one we need to please.

  23. Patricia

    @Arthur Black. Aren’t these people suppose to be Christians? It is the Laodociean church that God spoke about in Revelation. God will lead us into all truth…that is if we want to be led. Some folks have made a choice. And that choice is the world. I keep wanting to put Matthew 24: 4-13. But I feel the spirit saying Roman 1: 18-32. So here it is. 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

    19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

    20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

    21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

    22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

    23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

    25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

    30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

    31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

  24. Tala

    Isaiah 5:20
    Woe to those who call evil good and
    good evil, who put darkness for light
    and light for darkness, who put
    bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.
    When will people get in a uproar and defend Jesus like they do these “artist” It’s no secret that the music industry is a dirty game run by satanist. It’s no surprise that “gospel” artist drink from satan’s cup. It is sad that folk are following/defending these people. Jesus will draw the young, old, and everything in between. How where young people drawn BEFORE “christian hip hop” came along? That excuse is played out! Thank you EX ministries for ALL that you do, please continue to expose these thieves in the temple!

  25. Mrs. Cheryl Bernard

    This is really crazy!!! How in the world could a real believer think that this is okay? I just don’t even understand how someone could even or want to justify what she is doing when God already said, PLAIN AS DAY ” FRIENDSHIP( taking on the lifestyles, doing what the world does etc…..UNGODLY, UNHOLY AND UNCLEAN, PROFANE) WITH THE WORLD IS AN ENEMY TO GOD!!!! WHAT ABOUT THAT? DO SO-CALLED CHRISTIANS DON’T UNDERSTAND!!! If they would spend more time reading the Word of God then they would know what His(GOD) says word about JUDGEMENT. IT IS PLAINLY WRITTEN IN His WORD) AND THOSE OF YOU THAT TELL US NOT TO JUDGE!!! AREN’T YOU JUDGING US BY TELLING US NOT TO JUDGE???? IT’S IN THE WORD PEOPLE JUST REAAAAAAD ITT!!! BLOW THE DUST OFF YOUR BIBLES AND SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES. DISCERNMENT PLEASE. GOD BLESS EXMINISTRIES FOR NOT COMPROMISING AND TAKING A STAND FOR TRUTH OF GOD’S HOLY WORD.

  26. Evelyn

    You guys are mighty men who I greatly admire. I know your call is real. You’re living the Word, which causes me to see where I have fallen short. My prayer is to get over the manly matters and focus on the will and work of God for my life, which is ultimately for His purpose. Time is too short. Thank you for keeping me in your prayers as I continue to pray for EXM.

  27. Ronnie Ronye

    Ex Ministries simply expresses one thing about God,…God is an ABSOLUTE GOD HE WANTS NO COMPROMISE FROM HIS PEOPLE AND WANTS BE PERFECT AS HE IS. ANY SHORT OF THAT IS QUENCHING HIM AND ALLOWING THE ENEMY TO REIGN IN HEAVENLY PLACES. COULD THIS LADY GIVE HER BEST TO GOD BY CONCENTRATING AND COMPOSING AN ORIGINAL SONG ORIGINALLY MENT TO TARGET THESE YOUTH OTHER THAN USING KENDRICK.

  28. Karvelis

    Exministries awesome article! It’s sad but most of these artist are showing who their God is (mammom). It’s time for the Church to stand up and quit being mindless puppets and following after these people. Just because they cry Jesus don’t mean they are saved because their fruits would show! Even the demons believe and tremble. Music is something very important to me and when I see artists (because they aren’t true minstrels had they been, this would have ever occurred) it sickens me and brings me to a holy rage because the House of God is blindly giving them their money and not realizing that they are sowing into the kingdom of darkness when they purchase foolishness like this! We must hold these singers accountable because if they are representing the kingdom then they must do better! It’s sad that people will still fight tooth and nail in their defense when things are clearly being exposed in front of them. Sad to say it’s no longer fans but some of these people have crossed over to idolatry in regards to some of their favorite “gospel artist” because they will over look every ungodly action and try to turn it in to something good. God can’t take what is unholy and make it clean. The fly is in the apothecary and it’s starting to stink up the place!

    This message is to all those who want to to be critical of the truth that is spoken by Ex-Ministries. I have one thing to say, “SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP”!. I have never come across a ministry that speak the truth no matter what kind of backlash they will receive like ex-ministries.I thank God for them because they love the lord and care about his people. Stop appeasing your flesh and maybe you would be able to receive a word from the lord. You cannot be a friend of the world and be a friend of God, either you will hate one and love the other. I’m tired of the fake watered down church goers. That’s all you know how to do is go to church and bible study every week , but still live in open rebellion against God and have the nerve to rebuke real saints of God. Once again “SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP”!!!

    EX ministries, DONT stop preaching the Truth. Please keep going. Dont ever compromise! Keep doing what you all do under the POWER of the Holy Ghost. Enough is enough. People are making excuses. GOD can’t get the glory if we mix the sacred with the profane. Why dont these artist go in there secret closet and allow the Holy Spirit to bring forth PURE lyrics and PURE music to minister? Why borrow from the “world” to reach the “world”? It’s the ANOINTING that destorys the yokes!! God is soon to return. God is taking a church out of a ‘church’ and preparing His Bride. I want to be ready!!!

    The more I study and read the more evident it is that people are allergic to the truth and many don’t want to be accountable. The men who are willing to stand up and say For God I live and for God I die are labeled as haters, and evil. I don’t hear anyone from EX Ministires trying to say that the people who they speak out about can not be saved, or that we shouldn’t want what’s best for them, but in order for something to change you have to realize it’s not right in the first place. thank you for at least sharing that we have to look deeper and compare everything with scripture. If I have any questions about what you write or share I look to the word, not my fellings, not the world opinion, not my family and friends, i look first to the word, I ask god to show me and teach me and guide me and so far, I have been blessed with eyes to see that the scripture that says Everything of the World is corrupt, includes the music industry.

    Come out people.
    God Bless!

    Exministries, that was a great response to Arthur. If anyone really follows your ministry they would know that you preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. I listened to the True Church broadcast just this past Sunday and I was truly blessed. I just wish that I could contribute more financially. It’s been a little tough living on one income and feeding 4 little mouths, but I know the Lord will make a way for me to bless you all abundantly very soon. My husband and I truly love your message of truth. And you know what else? There was a time when I would’ve thought what Kiki Sheard did was really cool. I even would have defended it just like the others that made those comments above. I truly believed that these gospel artists were “reaching the lost”, and that people like the ones on this site were “too judgmental”. But I was also one of those “Christians” that was going to church every Sunday, getting down in praise and worship, and clubbing, drinking, smoking weed, and fornicating. I erroneously believed that “God knew my heart”, and that all the church attending and Bible reading I did cancelled out all of the wrong I did. I was deceived!! The only person who didn’t know it was me. It wasn’t until I fully surrendered my life and will to Christ that my eyes were opened to His truth, because I really wanted the truth. I pray that the ones who made those comments will truly surrender their lives to Christ as well so He can do the same for them. God bless you all!

  33. Ashley

    WOW! Mouth wide open… I agree with what everyone is saying. She USED to be one of my favorite artists… but now ugh I’m disappointed. As a 21 year old I’m glad I can say that Jesus means MUCH more to me than my favorite singer. She has shown who she serves so How can I even enjoy her? This is disheartening

  34. Iris

    Everything that God made IS GOOD, everything, including Music. It is Man who has taken that which is holy and perverted it for his own gain and pleasure. God does not need, want, expect or condone His Children to take the thing that has been perverted and try to change it back to holy. God is quite able to give inspiration through His Holy Spirit to the true music-prophets, to create music that is wholly acceptable to God. Artists of any type who try to give back to God something that is already perverted is an artist who does not Know what God finds acceptable. But let us not be discouraged….even the prodigal son realized before it was too late that he needed to return home, return to the truth, return to his Father. Let us pray that these artists do a 2 Chron. 7:14 before its too late for them as well. Peace!

  35. SamJ

    Thank you ExMinistries for restating the truth once again about the comprimise by this type of “so-called gospel music”. This is such a powerful exposition of speaking truth to compromise that I can use to share the gospel to others. People who try to defend using secular music, throw in a few “in Jesus name”, “praise Him” and call it gospel is either decieved or work for the kingdom of darkness. Hopefully it’s deception so that the truth can shake and wake them up before it’s too late. The family’s “unreality show” was a prelude to this latest compromise. We are seeing the Word of God fulfilled every day as the great falling away continues. Thank you so much ExMinistries. We will continue to support and pray for your ministry. God bless you.

  36. Freedom

    A few years ago God gave me the acronym E.L.E.C.T. (Exposing Lies (of the) Enemy (through) Christ’s Truth) I feel like this ministry is for the Elect people of God, for those who truly desire to hear the truth of God’s word, know the word of God and live it out and because of that it will be impossible for us to be decieved. God bless you all and keep speaking the truth!

    Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

  37. Pocopat

    I showed “The Truth About Hip-Hop” EXMinistries series to my College-aged Bible Study group at church. I was awestruck by their reaction. One erased all her MP3 music; another confessed still liking Alicia Keyes but forbade her younger siblings from listening to Hip-Hop; others were aghast at the “spiritual” proclivities of the ‘artists,’ vowing to remove the genre from their repertoire. Lives were CHANGED!! (Thank you, Brother Craig)

    However, Lo, and Behold, we left class after one of the DVD’s and what did we experience? The Teen Ministry group performed a Hip-Hop dance to some contemporary religious song at the beginning of the worship service. I was devastated. I tried to check out the reactions of my students and they were just staring. They have love for the children so I guess they just observed. Not wanting to be the confusion source, I didn’t ask for their reactions next class. How do you approach this when the church they attend has sanctioned this; and especially when the children of the Pastor and Minister are participating?

    I do always teach that every time the Israelites dragged in pagan practices, they went downhill as a society and incurred the God’s judgement. I do believe that they put two and two together and the message stuck. I keep them lifted in prayer and can see their growth from being exposed to the Word which is Truth.

    “Ri’Shard …. The BRL Conference is a youth conference! Most of the kids there were under 18 I promise you that they listen to the song the original version! Their are certain things that attract certain people to the word. It was something to attract to the youth.”

    Certain things that attract certain people to the word? If you care about your soul at all there should only be one thing(person) that attracts you to the word. That remix can’t save you

  39. Min.TJ

    I watch her show & I witness the process of the [pride of life] enemies influence, and the inticing of her flesh aswell as her brother. The lack true leadership from the father, and DISCERNMENT was lacking by both her parents. She had a snake in her mist, pusher her ouside of her norm [worship leader]. She ended up in places that even made her uncomfortable… but she continued to persue her dream. My grandmother told me this, “don’t do anything and then hope God blesses it later” words to live by. Dreams can be things we recieve from people & our own flesh… “but” God gives Visions of His will and it always lines up with the word.

    Thnx, Pastor Lewis
    I’m praying for you and the ministry
    [keep on pushing] I’m right with you.

  40. John

    I love how yall can judge this lady who u don’t even kno, but ppl can’t commet on how stupid you and this article is. It’s niggas like u that make ppl not want nothing to do with the church, thenget mad when ppl like Kierra try to go where they are and clean up the mess you made. Getcho life! Anybody tryna hear this stupid ISH is just as whack as the niggas who wrote it. Keep ya mouth off ppl you don’t know.

  41. K

    Ex Minstries Thank You for your faithfulness of honorably serving the Kingdom of GOD.
    Pastor Lewis I appreciate your biblical responses of GOD’s truth and order .
    Unfortunately,we live in a time where people want Jesus to conform to their current
    lifestyle rather than conforming their lifestyle to Jesus. As followers of CHRIST
    we must FOLLOW CHRIST and not the world’s system. This is why a true understanding
    of Kingdom is crucial . Understanding Kingdom will afford
    true followers of CHRIST the proper context of HIS teachings. Sadly, we
    are living in a time were people live their lives according to their emotions
    and understanding rather than what GOD’s word teaches. If GOD’s word is paramount ,
    as it’s required to be for HIS followers, then their can be no debate.
    Again, thanks for keeping us informed. Correction can’t come if the error was never communicated.

  42. The messengerman

    I agree that we should not take what the world has created and remix it. The sound of the song only takes the person back to the original. I am an aspiring christian rapper and i believe that every beat and sound must be original. I know the effects of listening to a remix, you just want to hear the original that much more. I don’t see why we can’t let the Holy Spirit give us the beat and sound for each song, atleast that’s how it works for me.

  43. The messengerman

    Also the term Christian Hip Hop is an oxymoron. It is two religions put together. You are either Christian or hip hop, not both. That is why i tell people I am a christian rapper or better yet a preacher using music to minister in rap form. People need to do research about the hip hop religion. It says don’t worship God, cause you are a god. Totally left field from what the bible teaches.

  44. Jeane K

    Re: King
    “The church falling away”, I totally agree with what you’ve said here, and TOO MANY christians forget that the Lord Has given us the authority to ‘judge’ in certain cases when it comes to how the Gospel is being presented (Matthew 7:24). Also, guess not to many know that True followers of Christ Will help to judge mankind as well??!!
    Lastly, if you think this is something, look at how christian motivator Joel Osteen just ‘rebuked Apostles, Paul, Peter and John in an ‘open’ forum. The apostate church is growing stronger folks, and Jesus Is coming back again, SOON. God help us.

  45. lindsei

    I don’t think Kierra Sheard did anything wrong at all everyone wants to like her until she comes out with somthing different! She is still praising God but in a different way she didn’t use his words the message of the song is totally difffernt from LA Mars message and there are people who listen to gospel music and hip hop music so how is she promoting him he is his own artist he promoted himself she didn’t write please don’t kill my vibe Kendrick Lamar did and I think its wrong that you could even say that she is promoting young people to go buy his music

    1. lindsei

      No its not. And I’m confused on why you think it is. I’m only 13 this the 21 century and things have changed but some of the older generation is stuck in their ways and they don’t want to accept change. I think she did nothing wrong. She is not perceiveing Kendrick Lamar message there is a new message because the song had been changed. That’s what I was saying and reading my first comment I didn’t see it as a joke so I dont see how you did!

  46. kayla

    Im only 13 can tell u that I thank god for people like Ms.Keirria bcuz she let the youth know who god is a lot of young people won’t even listen to gosple but bcuz of people like he kids do so the hell with her doing a cover to don’t kill my vibe I hope y’all don’t kill mine with comments if u won’t born in the 21centry u should understand. Me We gotta learn to stop judging because God approved of us before we came to earth

  47. lindsei

    @christina no its not! Tell me how you think its a joke! I’m 13 we are in the 21st centery music has changed and I don’t think she did anything wrong. The older generation is stuck in their old ways and doesn’t want to except change. So again how is MY comment a joke!

  48. Jessica

    Ok. First off, I’m a 16 year old girl. I absolutely HATE the fact that she tried to remix this song. I was there that night when she sang it. Nobody was really paying attention to her lyrics because for one, the music was too loud, and second, everybody was excited because it was a song they recognized. A couple of people around me were even singing the original version (w/o the curse words of course). Nobody cares that she changed the lyrics because everybody hype off the beat. Aren’t we as Christians suppose to be separate from the world? My REAL question is, why is she listening to his music in the first place? She says that she had an “alter call” after this song but really the alter call had NOTHING to do with the song, it was because she went into worship afterwards. Tell me this if u agree with her remixing the song.. does her version make u cry and worship God ? Does it make u want to give your life to the Lord and want to be saved? Does it make u want to do unholy dances? Or does it make u want to go and listen to the original version? I’m a young person and i know other young people (even some who were at the conference) that didnt like the fact that she did that. If these “gospel” songs these young artists are coming out w/ make u want to twerk or throw it back then clearly something is wrong. And yes, there were people doing the dougie, south dallas swag, and other non-christian dances. But yall say this is ok right? Well im here to tell u IT IS NOT!

  49. Jessica

    Also, everybody keeps saying that she has to “appeal” to her younger audience. If i see that she listens to rap music, then that tells me that i can listen to it too! Did Jesus go and do things that the world did to “appeal” to other audiences? Do u think if Jesus was alive today he would channel Beyonce and Rihanna and a bunch of rappers to “appeal” to other audiences? If Kierra is gonna go this far, then what is wrong w/ her twerking and saying she twerking for Jesus? She’s trying to “appeal” to the young people right? Ha!

  50. Ruva

    my questions are…what motivated her to do this? what were her intentions? and why did she choose this song in particular? Jesus said you will know them by their fruit…not by how many scriptures they can quote or know.. watch the fruit before you get impressed by how many scriptures they can quote

  51. Tiffsellshomes

    As Believers in Christ, we are to be examples to the world, not the other way around. Yes, we are to go into the world, but not be of it! This day and age, I understand she is trying to reach out to the youth and all. I just don’t see how that song really ushered anyone in to a worship? I have been noticing after she got in her late teens and watching the reality show, she has started drifting from the gospel music roots she was raised up in.

    Nothing is wrong in being creative in God, but not go get something secular to remix and call it worship music. We are more than able to be inspired by God for HIM to give us a new song!

    We have to decide which side we are truly on, there’s no lukewarmness in God for fame or to get ahead in your music career!

  52. Mrs.Tyson

    You know people are not willing to take reproof,rebuke,and correction they are ALWAYS willing(eagerly) to accept exhortation,edification,and exaltation without a problem, yes I must admit when I first starting following Exmin.I thought to myself that you guys were a little judgemental however I appreciate rebuke,reproof, and correction and I have learned that you can’t grow in the Lord if you can’t digest the truth, so I said all of that to say, they don’t have understanding neither do they fear God because if they did, wisdom and discernment would be the key element of growing in the Lord, I appreciate you all exposing artist who are not able to take rebuke because that just tells me that they are at a place in their lives where they are unwilling to be taught and they only have itching ears, God bless you Pastor Lewis.

  53. mrsantbirdie

    Praying yall continue to hold up the blood stained banner for Christ, without you our family would be deceived. We desire truth. Please continue to expose the devil.

  54. vanessa mccurdy

    Change of heart, Change of mind and Change of attitude. Without these there is no true repentance. The scripture let’s us know, A friend of the world is an enemy to God!!!

  55. Geneva

    We as Christians are supposed to point out this very stuff out, how will babes in Christ, know its not right, and changing he lyrics to a secular song and think its godly is wrong,:-)
