Not all gospel singers are Christians – Moses OK

Ace gospel musician, Moses OK, has intimated that not all musicians that compose or sing gospel songs know God or have a relationship with the Holy Spirit.

According to him, people may sing about God, but that does not mean that they do know God or have been called into that ministry.

The ‘Osori Taa Wakyi’ crooner made these remarks during an interview on #TheZone Monday.

He was responding to a question on the fashion sense of some gospel musicians, which many see as indecent and ungodly, especially during performances and in music videos.

In his submission, he paraphrased a chapter in Luke 17 vs 1-4, “The Bible says that the thing that causes people to sin will certainly come, but woe unto anyone whom through that person that a person falls.”

He noted, “from my point of view, it is not appropriate, it’s not right for a child of God, who knows God and has the spirit of God in him. We have to understand this, when a person is singing a gospel song, does that not mean, not all people who sing gospel songs are Christians or know God. Some people may sing about him and not be…”

One reaction towards gospel artistes who seemingly dress ungodly is disappointment. Many Christians expect gospel artists to be exemplary in every aspect of their lives, including their dress sense. They believe that gospel artistes should dress in a way that reflects the values of the Christian faith, which includes modesty and simplicity.

This conflict in his view has most often discouraged many from enjoying gospel music especially, those of some Ghanaian gospel musicians.

However, Ok, thinks people who are easily discouraged to enjoy gospel because of the acts of its singers are being harsh. He explained, “we have people making such statements but it’s very wrong. You shouldn’t have to conclude or judge the whole industry or ministry by one or two or three people doing some of these things.”

“You need to understand, as I said there are people who do not have a relationship with the Holy Spirit because when you truly have the spirit of God in you, the spirit of God will prompt you. He will let you know that what you are doing is not glorified, it does not glorify me.”

He added that, before he got married to his wife, the Lord ministered to him to prompt his wife about some dresses she should not wear, because people will be watching them and they are to set an exemplary life for the world.

Moses Ok is out with a brand new song dubbed ‘ENE MENKO’.
