Mary Mary‘s Erica Campbell stands tall as one of the leading voices in Gospel music, moving mountains and setting records as one half of the aforementioned act.
Now, after doing the same with her uplifting material, the vocalist has struck up a conversation about an issue many in the Church community still consider to be a taboo topic.
Find out what she has to say about it below…
In an interview with ‘Team Curtains’ Campbell was quizzed on her feelings towards the LGBT community in the Church.
Here’s what she had to say about it:
I believe sin is sin and it exists and God forgives it just like everything else.
The Bible says that God so loved the world — it didn’t say the heterosexual or the homosexual; it didn’t say the Christian, the saved or the unsaved. It said for God so loved the world that he gave his only son, that whosoever should believe in him, should not perish but have everlasting life. So that’s the only thing I can stay confident in.Keep sharing, keep loving, keep opening the doors of our churches, keep embracing and let God do the changing. I think a lot of times we try to be God. We try to make the change. Everybody has an issue. Maybe yours is lying and we can’t see your issue. We all have something to work on. My job is to love, not to judge.
Her comments come after her fellow Gospel singer Kirk Franklin weighed in on the same issue last week.
