Romans 1:22- 24 (NASB) says, in part: "professing to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the GLORY of the INCORRUPTIBLE GOD for the image in the form of corruptible man.....therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity"
Former Christian singer Ray Boltz left the Faith of our Lord Jesus Christ in 2004, when he left Contemporary Christian music. The same man who sang the perennial favorite "THANK YOU" and the great "PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE LAMB" not only chose to break his marriage vows with his wife of over 30 years, but commit abomination in his being against Holy God.
He made a conscious choice in both choosing the path of mortal sin in the flesh to immortality with Christ and by joining with the ultra-leftist Metropolitan Community Church (MCC)- the most outrageously gay religious group in America - he questioned the tenets of the Faith of Hebrews 11, and turned from us.
His ex-wife has joined the gay activist group Soulforce, whose goal is to disrupt solid Christian institutions like colleges and every single Southern Baptist Convention Annual Meeting. His interview with the secular gay Washington DC paper is troubling in its content and shows the lack of direction of Contemporary Christian Music and the Gospel Music Association (GMA).
Even more troubling is the GMA's reaction to the revelation. They said they do not comment on the "LIFESTYLES" of their artists! WHAT? They said they are a "TRADE GROUP"! Okay....THEN DROP THE NAME GOSPEL FROM YOUR NAME! YOU HAVE NO RELATION TO THE GOSPEL, GMA! By the way, in case one thinks I am all wet, listen to some of the "contemporary Christian music" on Christian radio today, from this "trade groups's members" and see if you find any Gospel there either!!
Finally, while it is sad to see Ray Boltz go the way of the flesh and condemn himself as an unbeliever, it is a wake up call for the rest of us. Let us never think we can walk in the world and THEN Walk with the Lord! Ain't going to happen, hoss!
