Christian Faith:Vince Gil Was Told He Can’t Sing About Jesus, So He Steps On The Grand Ole Opry Stage And Belts Out Famous Gospel

Featured Story

The term Christianity seems to imply a religious system in the same way that Islam and Buddhism are religious systems. Within religious systems are core beliefs, along with codes, rules, and standards that must be mastered in order to achieve the desired end. Christianity does not fit that definition and therefore the term can be slightly misleading.

When Vince Gill stepped onto the Grand Ole Opry stage to sing along with Little Big Town, no one expected him to openly defy the instructions he had been issued with regarding his performance. The man went on and delivered a stunning rendition of Why Me Lord alongside the quartet in a manner that will not be forgotten by many.

At the end of it, everyone stood up to give them a standing ovation, and no one particularly seemed to care about the fact that he had sung about Jesus.

Born in 1957, Oklahoma, Vince Gill started out as a country singer in a rock band that was then known as the Pure Prairie League. Later in the eighties, he became a solo artist and completely transformed to gospel country music.

He has since climbed his way to success and has won tons of awards along the way including eighteen Country Music Association (CMA) awards, Grammy Awards and has even been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame along with other singers such as Dolly Parton.

His father was a lawyer and a judge but he also played in a local country music band. The man taught Gill to play various instruments and played a major role in encouraging him to pursue music. Many would have expected him to follow his father into law but young Gill was adamant about his music. Lucky for him, his father was very supportive.

Gill has had his fair share of misery. His father had a son from a previous marriage. The half-brother was called Bob Coen, and Gill loved him dearly. He never once referred to him as a half-brother. To him, he was a brother.

The two lived happily together until things took a nasty turn of events. Bob was involved in an accident that put him in a coma for three months then left him with permanent head damage. He died shortly and Gill was devastated. He wrote a song for him and dedicated his album to him.

Gill also had problems with his marriage to Janis Oliver and got divorced in 1997. He met Amy Grant and the two got married in 2000. He has two daughters from both marriages.

When Vince Gill was invited to perform along the Little Big Town in their induction to the Grand Ole Opry, it was evident that he had been asked not to sing about Jesus. He joined the group of four in an astounding religious performance that was awarded a standing ovation by everyone present.

The man had just demonstrated that no one was going to shake his faith. It is a bold move that not many people would have the courage to show. People all over the world are always put in situations that compromise their faith, and most of the time, they are forced to choose between their religion and something else.

Everyone, no matter how senior their positions are, is supposed to learn to respect other people’s beliefs and religious practices as long as they are not cultic. Such respect will foster good relationships and cooperation from people of all backgrounds. Anyone can agree that it was wrong for the award’s managers to ask Vince not to praise Jesus.

Jesus did not come into the world to start another religion. There were already plenty of religions (see Acts 17:22–23), including Judaism, which had begun as a relationship with Almighty God (Leviticus 20:12) but had deteriorated into another religious system on par with idol worship (Matthew 15:8). Jesus came to bear witness to the truth (John 18:37), to seek and to save the lost—those separated from God by their sin (Luke 19:10)—and to “give his life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:32). With that said, those who follow Christ do share some core beliefs.

Biblically speaking, Christians are those who are forgiven of their sins and who have entered a personal relationship with Almighty God through faith in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8–9Romans 10:9–10). In order to become a Christian, a person must fully accept as part of his or her own personal worldview the following core beliefs:

• Jesus is the Son of God and is equal with God (John 1:149Luke 22:70Mark 3:11Philippians 2:5–11)
• Jesus lived a perfect, sinless life (Hebrews 4:15John 8:29)
• Jesus was crucified to pay the penalty for our sins (Matthew 26:281 Corinthians 15:2–4)
• Jesus rose from the dead (Luke 24:46Mark 16:6)
• We are saved by the grace of God; that is, we cannot add to or take away from Christ’s finished work on the cross as full payment for our sin (Ephesians 2:8–9) Source

It is impossible to find anyone in the Bible who was a power for God who did not have enemies and was not hated.

“Pedophile priests” have reverberated throughout America. But beneath our anger and revulsion, a fundamental question pulsates: Are those who abuse their positions of trust to prey upon children—a category certainly not limited to those in religious orders—sick … or are they evil? We need the answer to that fundamental question. Because, without the truth, we cannot act. And until we act, nothing will change.

My job is protecting children. It has taken me from big cities to rural outposts, from ghettos to penthouses, and from courtrooms to genocidal battlefields. But whatever the venue, the truth remains constant: Some humans intentionally hurt children. They commit unspeakable acts—for their pleasure, their profit, or both.

    The Bible says that Judas “repented” (Greek: metamellomaiin, meaning, “to regret”) in Matthew 27:3. Yet, Jesus said Judas had a devil (John 6:70). Judas didn’t repent toward God in faith to be saved; but rather, he felt regret that he got caught for betraying the Lord. Judas brought the 30 pieces of silver back to the Pharisees, but they refused it. Judas cast down the coins on the floor and went and hanged himself (Matthew 27:5). Turning from the act of sin is not salvation. The false repentance of Judas evidences this truth.
