Probably the only way huge celebs like this even get a chance to attend church is by surprise drop-ins, because you know good and well they probably wouldn't even get a chance to get a seat themselves if it were pre-announced. This can be problematic to a celeb who is also seeking a church and closer walk with God. The congregations should remember that celebrities have souls to be saved, too!

Reading these comments...So many haters. And so sad. People are missing true blessings because God doesn't show up in the package they are accustomed to. Just because someone makes a living singing mostly what some people refer to as secular music, does not mean that God is not working through them to bless people and ultimately get the praise Himself. There are plenty of artists, like John Legend, who may not have "God" and "Jesus" in their lyrics, but their message is filled with truth and light and love. If you don't like it, that's fine, but don't judge someone else's praise. Have several seats!!!!

ericb92280 Don't play that "actions speak louder than words" card brother. I'll tell you why. Because what is at hand is a convo about the principles of worship and praise. You don't me and how I act, and I don't know you and what you live day to day. But what is established by God, his word, can't be changed. If there is someone that is honestly concerned about topics of worship and praise - that's what we are doing - talking. If there is someone that feels a connection with John and feels compelled to "defend" in this comment segment - don't do it. Because what he went to do to this church was not relevant and it did not have anointing. So he can't be defended.

Amen to that !!!
JUZZY BOXX God, the God of the Bible a demands that true worshippers MUST worship him in spirit and in truth.... offering up ourselves as living sacrifices....that is what demands for as the only acceptable worship. Anything else that we do is in our pockets.
