I really don’t like doing these types of posts, and you guys know that I never post anything for the sake of gossip or rumor mills. As always, I’m bringing this to you so that you can be aware and so that you can do ONE thing Electric Teapots in response– PRAY.
On November 2, 2009, gospel hip-hop artist Da’ T.R.U.T.H. posted a public apology on the homepage of his official website (full statement at http://www.datruth.net/). In the written apology, he indicates that, “in light of a moral indiscretion in [his] personal life, [he] will be taking a sabbatical from music ministry and teaching.”
He further states: “I have repented first to God and then to my wife and family. It is my prayer that my family, supporters and the brethren in Christ will collectively be able to forgive me.” He asks that, in the days ahead, he and his family’s privacy be respected as they take the appropriate steps necessary to heal and regroup together as a unit.
Done and done.
The details of this situation are not relevant for me, and I pray that none of us begin to microscopically scrutinize his life for the sake of appeasing our own lust for dirt. God’s grace is more than sufficient for Da’ T.R.U.T.H’s situation, as it is for each one of my own. Let’s do what Christ calls us to do in this case– let’s love on him.
Who will join me in prayer for our brother?
