Webster's dictionary defines perversion: "the process of improperly changing something that is good; sexual behavior that people think is not normal or natural." Tragically, both of these definitions apply to a young girl named Miley Cyrus who needs prayers and counsel before she self-destructs.
Recently we took my 90-year-old mother-in-law to the Johnny Cash museum in Nashville. As a young performer he got entangled in a lifestyle of drug abuse which would have undoubtedly destroyed him had he not repented and returned to his Christian roots.
Miley's father, Billy Ray Cyrus, also followed a similar path. Raised by a charismatic minister, he exploded on the music scene with a global blockbuster, "Achy Breaky Heart," but the adulation seduced him onto destructive paths until he repented. Getting back on track he later recorded a gospel album. more >>
Instead of giving up on their dreams, three men are taking a second chance at being crowned the winner of "Sunday Best All Stars," and win or lose Clifton Ross, Dathan Thigpen and Zebulon Ellis are witnessing God's power move throughout the BET gospel music competition.

The top 10 finalists who were given a second opportunity on the show glorified God with powerhouse voices. But only three men remain after withstanding judgement from tough industry veterans, which include Pastor Donnie McClurkin, gospel singer Yolanda Adams and fellow gospel songstress Kierra Sheard.
While Ross, Thigpen and Ellis are excited for the opportunity to win a recording contract with one of the biggest musicians in gospel music, Kirk Franklin, the journey throughout the competition has proven to be just as fulfilling. more >>
Preachers deal with the same struggles as the rest of the world once they step away from the pulpit, and the BET premiere of the new movie "Let the Church Say Amen" showcases many of those challenges with the help of an all-star cast.
The film is adapted from the novel written by ReShonda Tate Billingsley that bears the same name, and features "Waiting to Exhale" actress Lela Rochon, who plays the film's first lady "Loretta," of the fictitious Zion Hill Church.
Rochon, who portrays the reverend's wife who's working hard to keep her household and the church together, describes "Let the Church Say Amen" as the type of faith-based film that will appeal to Christian as well as secular audiences. more >>
