Yolanda Adams Says Gospel Singers Can’t Wear “Sheets and Moomoos” To Avoid Looking $exy

2012 BET Awards - ArrivalsBy Staff Blogger

Erica Campbell of the gospel singing duo Mary Mary recently found out that sometimes the Christian community can be just as harsh as the rest of the world. Campbell wore a form fitting dress for a photo shoot, which she thought was both flattering and tasteful and was disappointed to find out that many in the Christian community thought otherwise.

The gospel singer’s dress caused such a stir that she eventually had to respond to all the criticism, almost apologetically and explain that she did not mean to offend anyone.

Recently, in an interview with Think Positive magazine, gospel singer , Yolanda Adams came to Campbell’s defense and even had some words of advice for those who feel like they get too much criticism. She said it was important to take the criticism with a grain of salt and reminded everyone that being a curvy gospel singer did not mean they did not have the right to wear what they wanted.

Adams said,

“I know for a fact that Mary Mary—because I’ve known them for years—they don’t try to be $exual. Some of the things that they want to wear, they’re in style.”

The gospel singer also added that being a tall woman herself who is als curvy, her desire when choosing her outfits was to be tasteful.

She said,

 “I’m very respectful in everything I wear. I think about it…I’m tall. I’m thin, but I have hips. A gown my graze me in a place where somebody may find it offensive, but it’s not $exual. That was not my intent. We can’t walk around with sheets on and moomoos. Then, they’ll talk about [that]. You have to take criticism with a grain of salt because you’re never going to please everybody.”

Is Yolanda Adams right? Will women of God get criticized no matter what they wear?

  1. If you look at all the movies that portray Jesus; the woman never wore garments of such. According to the scriptures, Jesus is to return. Would sisters wear garments that show off their beauty and adornments or would they dress as modest as possible in his presence. Nothing personal, but be in the world and not of it. Some preachers, pastors, bishops can not properly teach the word because of wondering eyes. I love Gospel music, but as a “natural” man, it is our nature to admire a woman’s beauty and her adornments. But, I would love it even more if she saved that for her husband, because the truth about it black woman, you are the most beautiful entity that The Creator has given us men. Your attraction is magnetic for men.
    In Ezekiel Chapter 16, The Creator is telling the Son of Man about certain types of women and what they have become, not to mention the chastisement to come upon these type of women. Not that Mrs. Adams fits the description by far, but please remember that our daughters are watching you and looking up to you as a vessel for the word of God that is coming to them in song. If men were wearing sagging paints and what not in the house of The Creator, I would feel the exact same. Once again scripture says: “Be in the world, but not of it..
    IJS (A concerned servant and follower of The Exalted-Christ)
    Thank All-Mighty Jehovah for the Black Goddess…

    • You do understand that the women of Jesus Christ era weren’t Christians right because it wasn’t a religion, faith or even a cult yet & the women of the “Middle East” still dress similarly & about 85% still aren’t Christian to this day. Their attire was due to the climate & weather more so than faith or modesty, did you ever take a second to wonder why the men & women dressed so similarly but I’m sure your ignorant self has never actually been to the “Middle East”. Your comment lacks any thought, knowledge or understanding, its just plain “ignorant”

      • With all due respect Mr. Hill., the name ignorant does not fit into my character, personality or spiritual knowledge. But you are more than entitled to operate your first amendment. No one is asking Mrs. Adams to portray women in the Middle East, it is just modesty that I want my daughters to one day achieve and dressing the part is one of them. Let’s leave religion for one moment and deal with reality. Rape has increased tremendously from our darkest days of slavery against each other. That can be attributed to the lust that men have in their hearts for women and the showing of cleavage, buttocks and markings that point to “sexual” areas. If you had a choice, what type of woman would you choose: 1)A woman that does not display the above aforementioned or 2)A woman that does display that. How would you want your daughter or even mom to dress for that matter. We have been so Europeanized and Caucasianized, that we have put down the customs of our fore-parents and took on the dress code of the skunk of the Earth. The major problem is that we do not produce anything from underwear, shoes, skirts, jeans, or even something as simple as toilet paper. So suffice it to say, that we are living the custom of a race that taught and held the bible from us for over 300 years and taught you from it as a means to keep you mentally, spiritually and morally dead, deaf and blind as well as a means for servitude perpetual slavery. The fact about it, Jesus never told you to be a Christian and his last name was not Christ. But he did say follow me and you will do even greater things than I (Jesus) have. If you feel that Mrs. Adams is doing the right thing, I respect your so-called opinion. I am far from religious, but I am totally spiritual in ever aspect of the word and am a child and servant of the Most High on any name you prefer to call Him. There is a scripture that says and I am paraphrasing: “When I was a child I acted and understood as a child, but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” But I do thank you for your reply and you still are my brother hopefully in faith. This subject is the reason why I posted to my blog site: “The Divine Value of Woman in Furthering God’s Kingdom” http://brotherregie.wordpress.com/2013/12/27/the-value-of-woman-in-furthering-gods-kingdom/?preview=true&preview_id=3&preview_nonce=58bd5aeef4&post_format=standard

        You can then read it and let me know if being ignorant is still a good character trait for me. As Jesus always said when greeting and leaving the lost sheep: Peace be unto you.
        Deuces, Brother Regie…

        • Ignorant means “lack of knowledge or experience” & to equate the “dress code” of biblical era women with Christianity or Jesus Christ is quite “ignorant” & to associate “Rape” with a women`s dress attire or behavior & not entirely on the dysfunction, selfishness & evil of the rapist makes you also “stupid & evil”. I have spent time in the “Middle East” unfortunately as a US Marine during time of “War” but I also attended Graduate School in “Engineering” so many of my “classmates, friends & colleagues” are also from the “Middle East”, “India” & “Africa” & one of there biggest plights is the rape of women even in cultures were they dress very “modestly”. Evil needs to provocation or excuse to be evil, just like your “stupidity”. FYI, my 1st job out of college was as a Cook County Sheriff Deputy here in the city of Chicago, I also have experience with rape victims

          • I DIGRESS MR. HILL BECAUSE IF YOU THINK DEGREES AND UNFORTUNATELY BEING A KILLER INNOCENT PEOPLE ARE WORTH SHARING ON ANY LEVEL, THEN YOU ARE WORKING FOR SATAN (AGENT) ANYWAY . YOU ARE TRYING TO DEFEND A STANCE IN RELIGION, YET YOU A MURDERER AND MISCHIEF MAKER AND NOT WORTH ANYMORE OF MY “STUPIDITY”. JOHN 8:10-… I HAVE 3 DEGREES: COMPUTER INFORMATION SYSTEMS(Florida A&M University), PARALEGAL LAW STUDIES (Hillsborough Community College) and BUSINESS MANAGEMENT (University of Phoenix). THEY ALL ARE SECONDARY TO THE “UP-LIFTING” OF MY PEOPLE. YOU NEED TO STOP POLICING IN COOK COUNTY AND DONATE TO AN ECONOMIC BLUEPRINT AND BUILD A NEW FUTURE FOR THE NEXT GENERATION TO COME, BECAUSE CHICAGO IS A WAR ZONE. http://WWW.ECONOMICBLUEPRINT.ORG AND TAKE A MINUTE AND READ THE BLOG.

          • I left law enforcement in 1997 & after 10 years in “Corporate America” got my Masters in Computer Engineering & own & operate a “It service provider company” & a “trucking company” here in Chicago. I’ve never killed or fired on a child & have no remorse or regret for those I did fire on, because some of us “Men” need to be doers & protectors & not watchers & pretenders like yourself, & you have made no valid or coherent argument against any supposition or statement, I’ve made, your an “ignorant” “stupid” “pretender” & your more aware of this than anyone

          • LMBO… I love it… now I know a little something about AL.. black men show hate to communicate but they do communicate amongst each other… all you gotta do is set back watch and observe… hum… what a sad horrible world we live in especially living in our skin…

          • Humm you never know… I discern much at all times and some azz-holes get paid to spy… sit their sorry rabbid assets around like a funky plant in dried up soil 24-7… you never know who mutha-buzzards are these days… I like to hit nerves…

          • All Hill….
            He is somebody of importance because I have observed his name show up at the top of many post only quoting very very very few words. Sometimes meaningless bullshyt, bottomline his spying ass is just fuking present for some damn reason…

          • To my surprise, Al is in a Greek Letter Organization just like me and we are neither Greek nor so-called Jew. But I now know where the disrespect or “wisdom” on women in his message comes from. ’06.

      • I agree with you. The comment that he made lacked knowledge and understanding. The first couple of sentences had me confused. He’s talking bondage

    • Religious church folks just need to mind their own damn business… God never needed mans help to do what he needs to do in somebody elses life…
      Religious minded church-folks are always over-rating and trying to control other peoples lives while their clergy suck all their money out of their pockets while their busy judging and draining innocent peoples lives to act and live false lives like them / land of the lost… All of you need to go find Jesus / God on a more personal individual level and stay the hell out of Yolanda and Erica’s business period.

        • Good Morning Reggie…

          Let Redbone be 100% with you for a minute. I glided through your post, and what your saying makes a whole lot of sense because: (I HAVE EYES TO SEE), everybody don’t, that’s why our people are out of control right now especially our black women, and I’m a proud black women also, but I’m livid and tired of all the BS concerning: *(Waking Up Being Black In America)… But don’t get me twisted: *Our black men are totally out of control too, but this article is about the way we dress and portray our image.
          I have an Instagram acct, the clothes /outfits I see our sisters wearing (literally f*kn BUTT-NAKED) from head to toe, no undergarments just funky-a** naked, leaves nothing to the imagination of a man /down-right whorish period… its sad.
          I communicate with a lot of african american men from the city to the system behind bars who are not pleased with the behavior dress-code of many african american women, from the demonic looking spike finger-nails, loads of hair-weaves, piled on make-up, to over-rated butt-naked form-fitting clothing attire, its endless. ***Our black-men are speaking out: (THEY DON’T LIKE IT…)
          We have totally allow the Media and the spirit of Idolatry to ruin our lives. Anytime a women step-out of bed in the morning look at herself in the mirror , pick-up the paint brush and start aultering her face: *SHE IS NOT PLEASED WITH WHO SHE SEES IN THE MIRROR… that’s a real-live-wire self-esteem problem, and she doesn’t understand that she has now crossed over into her God’s business of her creation.
          The painted up Black-Women is actually telling her God that she is not pleased with what he created in her or about her…
          God didn’t make no mistakes when he created the black-women, so truth be told we are taring down our own-selves image and the images of our daughters / seeds period, our little boys too.
          I believe this is one of the biggest reasons black-men nolonger respect the black-women, because this is one of the concepts of breaking our God’s laws…wink!!! Everything we do in the natural realm rather its good or bad has an effect on the spiritual realm because we are truly spirits housing a body of flesh only for a temperal moment.
          A naked exposed body in the public-eye only draws the spirit of sex/lust of the flesh and not respect.
          It makes me real angry when I hear other women say it is the black-women who shapes the fate of our black-men, then here comes a black-man who mis-treats black-women and try to use the QUOTE for a d*mn excuse for his negative action towards black-women… *But when you look at the big picture its the truth, sad but its the truth, and truth be told (WE ALL FALL SHORT) because the word of God says: We are all one body fitly joined together as (ONE), if the finger is hurt the whole body is hurt. We cannot rightly divide the words and laws of our God… this is the main reason and the BIG PICTURE of why african american relationships / aka: community is all screw’d up and on SKID_ROW. We have totally walked away from our God, and we honor and respect mans LAWS more then our own GOD’S LAWS…
          We as african americans have not gotten the true understanding and concepts of the Ten Commandments that was given to us from our God when our forefathers were wandering out in the wilderness…
          When we break laws in the natural realm of society we have to pay the judge in some kind of form… and we are so d*mn clueless and lost to have the f*kn d*mn nerve to believe that breaking God’s laws don’t come with consequiences….plezzz!!! Bottomline is our people don’t wanna wake their d*mn donkey’s up and change our whole program getting back to our true and living God’s business… The 4 wall religious churches in our black communities are one of the main factors at fault behind the down-fall of being black in America… and many of us are so d*mn PRO-BLACK and militant that we can’t even see that America is truly not our home in the first place, and we continue raising the f*ukn dead during our black history month. I’m not saying don’t celebrate but some shyt we take to far and its called (RAISING DEAD-MANS BONES)/ WE ARE FIGHTING DEAD BATTLES that God has chosen for us to fight in a different manor, but we have funky nasty wax in our d*mn ears, and money in our visions… just f*kn lost people due to laziness and ignorance concerning our God’s business… Serve our God is a way of LIFE, its totally not the the way of the 4-wall church…Amen!!!

          • Alas, an awakened Sister in the cause of our plight here in the wilderness of North America. Let me just say thank you for your sincere (100%) response. Let me also apologize to you and all who have seen this grudge match or dialogue play out with Mr. Hill. I am not judging Mrs. Adams, because she is so amazing to me regardless. But, this was a platform that I chose to get involved with because I received it in my inbox. To be even more real, I love Beyonce, but Blue Ivy is going to hear the xxx-rated lyrics in her latest album one day as well as see the revealing outfit(s) she wears in the name of entertainment. How is she going to explain it, I am not sure. I have some past demons or skeletons in my closet and I hurt everyday because my 2 daughters know about some of them. So, writing and doing positive things is one way I can help them overlook the negative and see the positive in their dad. I (Brother Regie) love you Black Woman and will do all in my realm of possibility to support you no matter what. Remember this, “there is no such thing as a no good woman, because every no good woman was made no good by a no good man, and a Nation can not rise higher than its woman or women” (THEM). I will be on a panel radio show tonight at 9 PM central time concerning Black male-female relationships. Stay tuned for more information and once again Ms. Redbone, thanks for keeping it “100”.

          • Brother Regie…

            Bless you so much for your response. I only communicate what the spirit of God lead me to say, and brother let me tell you its not easy at all.
            If you don’t mind it: I copied and paste your response to me in another form room (Article: about single black-women having babies and raising them with no fathers in the home. The room has so much devastation posting in it. There is a serious war going on behind that article. Its so sad… I will post / copy paste it to you. They needed to hear your message /response to me… It was very very very up-lifting…

          • My Beloved Sister Redbone:
            I thank The All-Mighty Creator for you and all those who have awakened to the knowledge of self. Our sisters are in a dyer need of support more than judgement. We have let you all down so many times that yes, the woman has to play both Father and Mother. But, God sees everything and hears everything. He will not let your enemies’ deeds and actions go unpunished. You say that you let the Spirit lead you to say and do what you feel is correct. That is the best method in my humble opinion to deal with the wiles of satan and his agents. Jesus did refer to someone coming after him in the Bible. He said” But when He comes, the Spirit of Truth, He will lead you into all Truth. Falsehood and Truth can not hang out together, so the time has come for Truth to bust the brains out of the well dressed lies that have been force upon us. Let me digress for a moment to say that the black male too, is a victim of this White Supremist Society. If you recall in the Bible, on two occasions, the rulers (Pharoah and Herod) plotted to kill all boy or male babies and spare the female. Well, a good portion of the Bible rather religious folk believe it or not, is prophesy that is playing out today. It all started in 1713 on the coast of Virginia at James River, that Willie Lynch put into motion the complete and utter destruction of the black male. He suggested such tricks like, putting the male against the female, putting the lighter against the darker, the old against the young, the straight hair slave against the corsed hair slave and so on.. That pyschological engineering has reached full circle and it is playing out today in this wicked society run by the same demons or devils that bought our fore-parents to the shores of North America. In 1985, Ronald Reagan started the process called: The War on Drugs. It was designed strictly for the black male. Possession and sell of crack made the judge sentence those involved to lengthy sentences versus powdered cocaine. Our brothers were going and still are being incarcerated at alarming rates because of this wicked plot by the modern day Pharoahs and Herods. First of all we do not own any planes and anything as small as a canoe to traffic anything. Yet, we lead the numbers in all categories when it comes to the “justice system”. We are either incarcerated or on some type of criminal supervision. Not only did it destroy families, it destroyed an entire generation in what seemed to be overnight. The prison industrial complex is another form of slavery and our men go in as men and come out something different. Many of them sleep with their roommates, thus you see prevelant homosexuality double since 1985. Then they go home with an infectious disease and give it to our women at home. This is not by accident, it is all a part of the initial plan to keep us a servitude people. They mocked us by selecting not electing Barack Obama as president just because he is black, but his goal is not to help our condition. His goal is to keep those who paid and selected him in office fed and happy. Since he has been in office, look at the alarming rates that black people have unfortunately endured. Well, I can go on talking about this demonic devil for 8 days straight, but too much of this type of information will take away from what I really wanted to say. By the way, I am not making excuses for us males, because some of us don’t even try to uphold the standard or torch that the ones who’s blood, sweat and tears were scattered to get us to the level where we have the freedom to dress like Europeans. We are going to be a beautiful people once again, because God has not bought us this far to drop us off here. So stayed prayed up and get ready for the show down between Satan and our Angels. In fact, Satan knows he is in a lose lose battle. It is imperative that our sisters wake up and reclaim the Kingdom of God, because Heaven lies at the feet of the Woman. Without you, there is no us.. We need to invest our time in the youth and not so much so the older generation. Moses led his people out of bondage and they wanted to go back to Pharoah, so God let them die out in the wilderness and let their children inherit the land of “milk and honey”
            It is my pleasure and an honor to have you copy and paste anything I print. I am just flattered that you think it is worth it. All praises be to Jehovah, Jah, Allah, Christ, or whatever we call The Creator of the Heavens and Earth and everything in between the Universe. I am going to the link you sent to my email to see what our sisters are thinking over there. Remember, we are not dead, we are just sleep. Just like Lazarus or lazy are us..
            May God’s continual peace be upon you and yours my Beloved Sister.
            Your little,
            Brother Regie

          • Wow!!!
            Brother Regie you are so awesome!!! I am a chosen of God, I won’t go any farther then that in this room, but I will share somethings with you God showed me because I do walk in the gifts of dreams and visions also.
            Its what you said about the women that brought this dream back to my spirit tonight: 15 years ago God brought me back to my home-town and laid me to sleep…
            In the dream women ascended from on high… they came down out of the sky dressed in pure white suits like Trojin warriors… all uniformed and powerful standing on skate-boards seemingly with no wheels… when they hit the ground the ground shook but they didn’t shake or waver.
            When they came upon the scene it was by surprise, so powerful men could not compel against them because they came straight from the kingdom of God almighty, then I woke-up…
            In that 15 yrs span God put me away in the deep south of Arkansas for 3 1/2 yrs, I thought I was dying lord help me / let me out of this place.
            God sent me back to my home town again (VEGAS) and gave me another part to the dream: I was standing in the desert with a host of other women, the bushes, sand and stones were clean and clear… then all of a sudden we ended up at the edge of this cliff, and the clouds open up and God was sitting at his desk with a scroll… his assistants were standing amongest us on the edge of the cliff giving us instructions from God to jump off the cliff… Regie if you know anything about the spiritual realm; communication is done by spiritual discernment / some type of mental-telepathy is the best way I can explain it / aka: now communicating by the mouth, its all spirit… anyway our assignment was to jump off the cliff and some of the women were mumbling about it: I told them *(its a test, God is here, and he’s not going to allow anything to happen to us, so just jump off the cliff and get it over with, either your going to trust him or your not, I’m out of here, and I jumped off the cliff and left all of them standing there debating)… LMBO!!(I landed flat on my feet), then I woke-up. 3 week later after that dream revelation I was at a womens convention and the speaker got up and started talking about the dream and gave the scripture ref for it… blew me away!! So Brother Regie I know something is getting ready to go down, and the rapture of our God is only to be understood by the spirit… I can’t wait to see what God is getting ready to do, but its going to be awesome because brother Regie I’m one tired sister in the spirit behind waiting and walking through the fire and sharing in the sufferings of Jesus Christ. I’m so set-apart now that I don’t fit-in anywhere anymore. I can’t even find home anymore… Anybody can buy a house, but you can’t just make it a home just because you purchase it with hard earned money, its a spiritual thing when it comes to God’s business.

          • All praises be to God All-Mighty for you sister. What you have just shared with me is not foreign to me at all. I overstand what you experienced and you are right, something is about to go down. Your vision is a witness or testimony to the power of God. In fact, you experienced the highest form of spirituality known as meta-physics. Not many persons who claim to be Children of God experience these type of spiritual journeys or visions. Suffice it to say, the Bible puts it this way: “Many are called, but only a few are chosen”. In my humble opinion, you are in that number and must surround yourself with like-minds. Otherwise, the illness and deep sleeping spell that is on our fellow brothers and sisters will disturb your spirit and rock your soul to the point of being extremely angry, non-tolerant and the thought of hopelessness for them. We must remember, that all of us remain in need of forgiveness from God because we still live in a sinful wicked system that is on its way out. In fact, our righteousness is as filthy rags in the eyes of the Beholder. As I said in an earlier post, Jesus was told that his brother and friend in faith Lazurus was dead. That part of the Bible contains the shortest verse of Jesus’ Gospels wherein it says: “Jesus wept”. So Jesus asked them to take him to where Lazurus was and he called out to Lazurus 3 times to come forth. I know Lazurus was sleep, because the tone that the spirit put on my mind was that Jesus’ tone went from low, to medium, to a shout. After the 3rd time, Lazurus came forth. Suffice it to say, our brothers and sisters are in a 6,000 year deep sleep and those that are chosen will be called into the priesthood mainly with the 144,000 Saints or Angels that will govern the Kindom of God on Earth and not in the sky. You have Angels or Servants of God watching you and protecting you, so when you follow the low still voice in your head, It is the spirit of God coming to you from the whispering of the Angels that surround you at all times. Remember, God is within, heaven is a state of mind and hell is a state of mind and condition. God is a spirit and not a spook and should be worshipped in spirit and in truth. That is why we are referred to the heirs of the Kingdom made in His image and after His likeness. Another scripture put it as simply as this: “Ye are all God’s, children of the Most High”. Continue to claim your Sainthood or Priesthood and never give up on the “Lost Sheep of the House of Israel” or our soon to be awakened brothers and sisters. That will require complete submission to the One true God and His will.
            On that note, I would like to exchange contact information with you, because my spirit tells me that we are upsetting the evil forces that Jesus ordered to enter into the swine. “Wherever there are two or more gathered in my name, so am I”. So we have pleased at least two people by taking this “negative” article and putting a positive but Godly spin on it. In other words, we went to church and I would love to continue this service or communion on a different platform.
            May Jehovah God continue to pour out His peace and blessings on you now and forever more. Keep seeking the Kingdom of God and its righteousness and everything you desire will be added unto you.
            Your little,
            Brother Regie

            LMBO!!! AL you are too funny!!! and I do hear you more so then you realize, and I hear Regie too!! but I’m laughing because the two of you don’t really hear yourself, but its very very entertaining to Redbone because I love to hear REAL BLACK-MEN articulate / communicate… *(Both of you are real STRONG BLACK-MEN)…
            Most Black-men don’t articulate, they only quote, and they can’t stand a Black-Woman who knows how to articulate with them and on their level, so both you guys have Redbones full attention…

      Ladies: What We Do To Our Kids When We Raise Them Without Their Fathers

      Mom and sons and daughterBy: Krystle Crossman

      There is a trend that is becoming too much the norm in society right now. That trend is being a single mother. No father in the home means that the children grow up without a male figure to look up to. This can be extremely damaging to a child even if they seem like they are fine. Here are some statistics about children that grow up without a father in the picture.

      I totally agree with u brother Reg, as a Christian woman, God wants us to be sexy, however he wants us to do it classy and of good taste, we represent him, we’re his children, and we as ladies and women are to be totally covered up, we don’t have to be wrapped like mummies, but God doesn’t want us to be exposed either, I use to wear revealing clothing until I began my close intimate relationship with Christ and he taught me the way women should be adorned. However, this has to come with ones personal relationship with God, ask him and he’ll teach you the right and proper way to be. I hope all women and men get a personal relationship with him, he’s an awesome God and he will never fail anyone. Stay blessed and strong in Christ.

  2. “Wearing a moomoo” was not suggested. That is a non sequitor. The issue is that she was not dressed modestly however you want to slice it. “Religion” has nothing to do with it. It has to do with what the Bible says.

  3. A petson know what they look like when they leave home. If you proclaim to be a. Godly woman your attire should speak what you are proclaiming. Period.

  4. Yolanda Adams, Mary- Mary, Desiree Sheffield and the rest who will say you represent christ…”Dress the part” .It’s when you wear a dres 2 sizes to small or pants like you’ve been poured into them forgetting what you’re an ambassador for and too.A woman and Lady is one not a female. She’s dignified and set apart from average. A rare jewel and just because you are popular with a voice sexy is classy not revealing or looking like you’re at the club or confusing send mix messages to 7-16 yr old girls who admire you too duplicate your dress code. My neice stretch her eyesand gawk in shock at the dress code Gospel Singers “Think” its ok to wear.God hear and see your motives…(hip-hop) or Classy Lady who don’t succumb to the world’s standard.You can’t serve two Gods.Your relationship with God should be first abd only. My grandmother and mother were very well built and proportioned but still dressed Lady like. Air between the skin and dress not painted on them like Ms.Adams or the rest . I’m sure her grandmother did not teach her this…I speak in respect, clarity and love from a gentleman. The difference between a church woman and a female in the street:One advertise the other does not…Zephaniah 1:8.On Sundays Best Ms.Adams…where is Love and kindness towards human decency…Cold and harsh statements. My point is something is wrong and deeply wounded too someone’s soul to dress so casual ;being a woman of God and speaking so harshly. My Grandmother said :Look in the mirror the dress will let you know…and if not God will “Sho’nuff” let you know !!! Smile and walk off to use her common sense she taught as to say:Where is your common sense she trained you and “Don’t forget”.Women lead with”Respect-Integrity and Dignity”!!! GOD have standards. Not low self esteem. Give it some thought.

  5. people are going to find wrong in everything because it makes them feel better about themselves, Erica look good and some people are just jealous.

  6. You are sexy in coveralls. You don’t have to be lusty to be sexy. In fact everyone can’t be sexy. I guess sexy gospel singers like yourseft will have to stop smiling. These hateful hypocrites are out to make sexy a bad word. I think Erica Campbell is beautiful and her choice of clothing takes nothing away from her message

    Many of the comments are arguments stray from the simplicity of the situation, and because of the modernization and worldliness of Christianity and the church comprehension may not come to many. Gods word is indisputable, the minute you start taking apart, reformulating, modernizing, redefining Gods word to fit into this time, is the moment you cease to be a true believer and Christian. Christianity is about sacrifice, it is about being set apart, and different, it is not able to assimilate, it is silly to use the dress code of biblical/historical movies to argue dress code, clearly that point of reference is no longer accurate. However in this day and age clothing has various meanings, and representations, it is a form of regulation and classification. When I dress I am able to choose what style and message I want to convey, from weave to toe nail polish – it is silly for females to lie and state anything otherwise. I know when I look sexy, in fashion and desirable, and I know when I look humble and church presentable PERIOD!! There is nothing in Yolanda’s point of view that speaks or endorses Gods mandate, her argument is worldly. She is blatantly professing the need to compete and assimilate with the people of this world, and her fear to be the ‘other’ to be ‘set apart’ in something horrid as a moomoo (how sily and world to say that the opposite of having your breast out and extreme sexiness is a moomoo, what nonsense!!) and thus her position and motivation is not only evident but sad. I’m a female, I am not speaking from a manly point of view(no lust to be activated here), nor an uninformed one so when I tell you that we as females are wrong and it is not a small error that can easily be changed because its roots are embedded within the material structures of the church, the family and society. Within our various churches we can see many examples where the separation (being set apart) is not found, an erroreous choice that the ministerial body makes often for material and financial gain, membership increase, etc., which then makes the complaints about garments seem petty, but true nonetheless. Anywho I started off saying it was simple, so lets keep it so, ladies its wrong, and one needs to allow themselves to search and accept when found the reasons why.

    Cheers!

    • Humm!! Really, and God said: Behold I stand at the door and knock and the 4-wall church wouldn’t even let him in, and they still won’t let him in… so God said he would go out to the highways and byways and gather up the down-trodden clean them up and set them at the table of feast… He also said the church will be the (LAST) to enter into the kingdom of God and the spirit of RELIGION is a bytch and not apart of our God’s agenda, matter of fact its a sin, and its the spirit that has fooled the very ELECT OF GOD in the last days, and you said what Sister Pristine!!!? Your Point IS????????

  9. Church folks are some of the most judgemental people on the planet. Remember that your relationship with God is personal. Live your life.

    • Your relationship with G-d is indeed personal but the space between your CD and a buyer is rather public, and that public has every right to decide on what basis they will support you. If you built a fan base on a certain image and then decide you prefer another fan base, live with your decision.

      If sisters of faith can’t demonstrate that there’s plenty between a moo-moo and a spandex outfit, who can?

      And too, women with “more to show” than others need to dress accordingly.

  10. Erica Campbell’s dress was too form fitted and too tight. Period. End of story.

    This is not about criticism, people-pleasing, curves, moo-moos and it certainly ain’t about jealousy. Yes, Erica Campbell is a beautiful sister– but it ain’t about that either. Sex has become so ingrained in our society and in our psyche that some people can’t discern what’s appropriate and what isn’t.

    The first thing that popped out at you in her photo was her figure- her titties and her hips. And the only reason you didn’t see her ass bulging out of the dress was because she wasn’t turned around. There is no way in hell that anybody can say that-that image is a presentable representation of God. Those that have are lying to themselves.

    Since when did it become acceptable for a Christian woman to sport a “bootylicious” image.

    And some Christian’s act dumbfounded and clueless as to why they are constantly the target of so much criticism…because of straight foolery and ignorance such as this. How can you sit and defend and justify that and call yourself a Christian with a straight face.

    The next thing we’ll see is Christian strippers and they’ll be some Christians trying to justify that. “Well you know as long as she’s spreading the word at the strip club in between working the pole, she’s still anointed and sanctified with the holy ghost.”

    Straight ridiculous….

  11. The bible says women are to dress modestly.
    Our church defines that as not wearing tight or
    revealing clothing. We as Christian women are in the world not of the world.
    The litmus test for me is would you wear that attire if you met Jesus?

    The first thing that popped out at you in her photo was her figure- her breasts and her hips. And the only reason you didn’t see her *** bulging out of the dress was because she wasn’t turned around. There is no way in h*ll that anybody can say that-that image is a presentable representation of God. Those that have are lying to themselves.

  13. Erica Campbell looked beautiful in her dress! If she was wearing baggy jeans and tee shirt, y’all would have something negative to say about that. Her dress was NOT too tight. People always try to put others down when they are feeling good about themselves. Stopping always judging other people because you are not happy with yourselves. It didn’t shock me that some of those so-called Christians that talked bad about her were just rude and ignorant when they did so but yet they profess to be God-fearing. Yeah right! If they were they wouldn’t have been judging her. She looked absolutely amazing. Some of those same Christians are the ones that fling their tailbone up in the club drinking and coming on to men they don’t know and then be up in church Sunday morning pretending to be so spiritual. Give me a damn break!!!! Stop always judging everyone. Fix your own home and leave people with well intentions alone. Damn!

  14. What amazes me & causing me to leave this discourse is this “Brother” equated the rise in Rape to women dressing provocatively & I am the only one to address him that “Rape is about the selfishness & evil of the rapist” & nothing to do with the women’s attire or sex & he & 2 other “Sister’s” are the only 2 to address me. I fore one believe its what’s in your heart & soul that gets you into heaven & not what’s on your back. One author here insinuated that you all are a bunch of “fat, jealous, insecure, Christian hypocrites” I believe they may be correct. If he made that comment on a “White blog” white women would have been on him like “ugly on a gorilla”

    • It does not surprise me that you would know how white women would respond. PSA/FYI The website is entitled Healthy BLACK Woman. Your or my opinion is not the all and be all. Heaven, just like The Kingdom and The Creator is within. I love the Black Woman more than any creation God has blessed the Universe with. In fact, I proceeded forth from the womb of a Black Goddess of the Universe. Enjoy your misery Mr. Al.

      • So your issue is with Mr growing up in an integrated neighborhood & not “Rape”, I know what you are you pathetic piece os miscreant & raising a 18 year old Black man my son here in Chicago & if he made that statement I would give him a “right cross” to the jaw along with his mother who’s a “Black female” officer here. You dysfunctional lying piece of Sh!t

    • I know what you are Dude “your not running to salvation your running from your demons” how badly has your arrest record hurt your career & did they trust you before you wronged them

      • It hurt me (misdemeanor arrests) enough to be an entrepreneur, free lance writer, mathematics tutor and mathematics coach, reading/writing tutor and coach and a computer applications tutor. I taught at an inner-city charter school in Tampa, FL and with the dedication of the students, the school went from an F standard school to a B+ standard school. It’s not about me or my minimal accomplishments, it’s about uplifting the younger generation and generations to come of young men and women, if God allows me to be here long enough; Mr. Straw man. By the way, you don’t know me, you might only know of me.

        • ********LMBO*******

          You guys need to stop!!!! LMBO!!! where the hell is my switch!!! Get your butts over here and drop them right now!!! AL Hill I ain’t never heard so much from you LMBO!!! Wow!! So much energy!!!

          Both of you guys need to stop before yall lose the Holy Ghost…!!!! Your both making my day!!!

          • He knows I see him for who & what he is, this article is about women’s clothing & yet every post he’s made is about himself. I oppose the statement that the increase in “Rape” is about women dressing scantily & just because of “evil rapist” & every post since is about attacking me & Himself. I’m 44 years old born in Jamaica parents moved from there to Mississippi in 1971 then to Chicagoland, been in “Black Fraternity since 1987, played football through high school & college & was a Marine Corps reservists, I know team players & dangerous psychotic selfish individuals, everything is about him “this is that guy that takes you out to dinner & because he spent a few dollars on a women you owe him & she doesn’t matter because its all about him” the police officer I once was in me & most of my family is tells me he has a criminal record for some deviant stuff

          • AL…

            Brother you got me rolling on the floor!!! both of you guys do!!! Al your young even though you’ve covered a lot of ground. I thought you were an much older gentlemen.. see you never know who your communicating with.
            I’m 53 yrs young, not old by far because God has been good to me. There is so much ignorance going threw these post rooms its sometimes not even funny! I’m learning how to choose my battles and ignore the rest because when your up against a d*mn blind fool its like bumping your head up against a d*mn wall.. YOU CAN’T WIN at all, its not worth-it.
            The biggest mishaps come forth due to the huge *(GENERATION-GAPS)… What my eyes see and my spirit discern is above and beyond the norm of everybody else. WORD: Paul said I wear all shoes: meaning he could communicate to the kingdom of God in the natural realm on all levels from the rich-man to the poor-man…wink!!
            To Redbone vulgarity comes in all forms: from the most education to the high-school drop-out. I see people post information using their higher-education fluting vocabulary, and it just pisses me off because they’re message is so d*mn dead it can’t even reach the people.
            Don’t get me twisted education is great, but what good is a message if its always falling on deaf-ears, people just stop reading it. Sometimes a little so-called vulgarity mixer helps a good message even though many people will disagree, its not even about a mis-spelled word.
            The major point is not about the words used, its about getting the message across to the people / being heard…wink

            My oldest daughter is engaged to a Jamacian guy, and my youngest is with a Gianese /african… I’m just praying to God for their relationships to workout and head towards marriage because I’ve seen that these 2 men are family orientated and do not dis-honor my daughters by slipping around with other women.. building relationships in black america is not easy at all.. and AL there is a lot of info I cannot talk about in my post (Americanized black-woman vrs Americanized black-man), you can just read between the lines of the info I shared with you about my daughters.
            We are requested to Jamacia for my daughters wedding in one year… I’m looking forward

  15. Wow. The strongest charge I have is not paying a Taxi Cab fare that one of your near island brothers(Haiti) tried to get me to pay. He overcharged me and the second highest is being caught with a blunt. Thanks for your research. I am in the Alpha of Alpha fraternity and pledged in 1990. I graduated in 1987 with a football scholarship (quarterback). It figures, you are an islander and some of you just can not get along with blacks over here. I lived in Chicago in 1990 and learned alot about your police force. It is apparent that you did not read the article I wrote on “The Divine Value of Woman in Furthering God’s Kingdom”. Not only that, but I was invited by two spiritual sisters to be a part of the panel on their talk show tonight. You need to listen to that too. I feel sorry for you. You sound miserable and misery loves company. I said it is not about me, but the youth.
    This has turned comical now and I am not a comedian. I must repent and atone for this nonsense.!!!!!!!
    Dueces Al Hill II LOL

  16. Why are you people “bearing witness” on a “Black Entertainment Blog” is it because your lying asses don’t have or go to a church to do it in or the people around you know the pathetic heathans you really are & so off topic or does that matter with the stupid. I heard how “Ghettofabulous” this site is & if your communicating with someone through a Blog stream its because you don’t know or trust them to give them your phone number or email address & your truly lonely & sad, just wow

      • I wouldn’t allow you to wash the rims on my truck nevertheless “give you the time of day” I have lonely ugly pathetic fools who live in a make believe cyber world like you “worship me” Tanya Jefferson on Facebook, just sad really, the “real world” is fun, join us

  17. Hi,Al in response to Yolanda’s original comment about Ms. Cambell s’ attire. No one should expect women of the gospel to wear sheets or moo moos, but what we do expect according to the standard of the gospel is to listen to the Holy Spirit when adorning yourselves. There are a lot of unsaved women watching us. The bible say’s if meat offends your brother then don’t eat it. We as women of God need to stop dressing like the world and calling it holiness. The scripture is clear on its position of these questionable matters, and that is: Come out from among them and be ye separated. “Them” meaning the world or any kind uncleanness or ungodliness. Women generally do dress to entice men or whomever they want to draw to themselves. I have the hips and the chest that could be very enticing if I chose to be. Inward lust can be displayed outwardly in your attire. Holiness can also be depicted by your attire as well. The bible speaks about the righteous lifestyle or conversation or behavior of a (spouse) for an example can change the other .So then why is not possible for women to adorn themselves in a Godly manner and influence men women and children’s lives WHY? The lord knows about our curves he created us, but he never meant for our bodies to entice anyone but your spouse, not men who could look upon you to lust. Don’t be a stumbling block for someone else to falter.
