Gospel Sounds from the Road: “Ka-Ching”

In God we TRUST... not God's folkWell, many pseudo-Christians looking to resurrect their careers deny it (i.e. Gary Busey, Axl Rose, Chyna), but when if they want to keep it real, (just as noted here), it’s “All about the Benjamins.”

FINALLY! Someone has just come out and said it. Enter acclaimed 80s rap group gone ‘Jesus Freak‘ Christian band, “DC TALK“.

Note this lovely ‘behind the veil’ story in LarkNews.com.

For 1000s of preachers, ministers, bands and artists, they would rather cash in souls, but for D.C. Talk, it’s about just cash. Note their quotes:

From Michael Tait:

“This is a great opportunity to energize our solo projects, if we can stand being on stage together for a little while,” he said by phone from a rest stop near Wichita. “It also wouldn’t hurt to goose back-catalog sales, ’cause I bought into this whole real estate boom thang.”

Yeah, that sounds like the mission field. How about from ‘front man’, Toby Mac:

“If Sting could tolerate Stewart [Copeland] for one more tour, I guess I can get along with these guys,” says Mac.

FYI – Sting left The Police for a GREAT solo career and the other guys didn’t do to shabby writing scores for Academy-award nominated movies. However, why the long-awaited reunion? Money.

SO, while DC Talk “guesses” they can get along for one more down-the-road, Body of Christ understand this one thing… this ain’t about the glory days (pun intended), playing their greatest hits for the fans or even serving the Lord. Folk gotta’ pay the bills. Enjoy the $75 cover charge, HiScrivener will keep with the CDs.

    DJ, I agree. And you would be surprised what I know about them. Dedicated to the “craft”, indeed. But after the bruises and battering, dedication to the ministry is what I was questioning.

    Artists? Great. People? Good as well. Servants for the Lord? Seems to be distancing. IJS.

    that’s a lot of smoke to blow out your butt.

    if you genuinely knew anything about the 3, you’d know just how dedicated they are to their craft. the fact that they are human, and have bills to pay as do we all, does not take away from the caliber of persons and artists that they are.

    rather than attempting to sound some jesus-sell-out alarm bell, it would do you good to research these men so that when you write you appear credible.

    your blog simply sounds like that of a bitter betty.
