Christians Take a Stand at the Grammy’s

We all know that the devil will get a foothold in this world wherever he can. Books, movies, television shows, and… music. Which is why famous Christian singer and American Idol finalist, Mandisa, spent January 6 at home.

Nothing about this should stand out particularly, but January 6 mandisawas the night of the Grammy’s- the night that Mandisa was awarded “Best Contemporary Christian music song and album.” In response to question of her absence, the singer Facebooked, “I have been struggling with being in the world, not of it lately. I have fallen prey to the alluring pull of flesh, pride, and selfish desires quite a bit recently.”

She went on to explain that the reason she stayed in her home, “rocking purple sweats,” was not because of the horrific displays of satanic music and sexual fornication, though she confessed she wished she could erase these things from her mind. She said, rather it was because of her own personal struggles to do what she knows is right in God’s eyes.

Mandisa’s competitor for the award, gospel singer, Natalie Grant, did attend the Grammy’s with her husband, but left early. Not saying what performance had driven her to leave, Grant said only this: “We left the Grammy’s early. I’ve had many thoughts, most of which are probably better left inside my head. I’ve never been more honored to sing about Jesus and for Jesus. And I’ve never been more sure of the path I’ve chosen.”natalie grant
