A while ago, Meagan Good’s Pastor Husband, came at a fan for criticising his wife’s dress sense. DeVon Franklin said,
“She’s not gonna cover up, she’s gonna wear what she wanna wear in the name of Jesus, amen? She’s gonna wear what she wants to wear.”
The actress who chose to stay quiet then, has spoken up. Speaking to ESSENCE, Meagan noted that some Christians can be “backwards.”
According to her instead of focusing on the subject of celibacy that she and her hubby are preaching, they’d rather focus on her wardrobe.
“The crazy thing is how backwards some of us can be as Christians”. “Hubby and I are doing all we can to go out into the world with a God-given message in an area that many of us secretly struggle with, and some others have attempted to discredit a much needed cultural conversation and reduce it to a wardrobe choice… A choice that is and always will remain between me and God.”
She also added this message to the one woman in particular who claimed that “God sent her” to shun Meagan.
“When my husband said that I’m going to ‘wear what I want to wear in the name of Jesus,’ he meant that it is between me and Jesus. While I don’t believe she had ill intent, I can’t believe God would tell someone to publicly humiliate another person. I believe if God told her to share something with me, He also would’ve given her the wisdom to do so and I don’t think her approach reflected that. But, nevertheless I have nothing but love for her. And for anyone who may disagree with me, I ask that they pray for me in love instead of slandering or attacking me. I believe that is the true essence of who God has called us all to be—lovers. I believe He can handle the rest.”
What do you think about Meagan’s choice of clothes?
