People are really up in arms about “The Sisterhood”, the new reality show which features the lives of a few of Atlanta’s ‘Pastor’s wives’.
The show has drawn protests from “Christians” who feel that it portrays the first ladies of the church in a negative light. There’s been an ongoing debate about the show, with some calling it ‘blasphemous,” while others were thoroughly entertained.
Someone even created an online petition to get the show off the air event though only ONE episode has aired so far.
In light of all the strong emotions, a real Pastor recently posted a video sharing his thoughts on TLC’s controversial new reality show and he has a surprisingly level-headed response to the drama.
Pastor Rod Lumpkin says that instead of praying to remove the show from the airwaves, it’s probably best to allow the Lord to do his work using that platform.
…and let the church say “Amen”!

the real church wives of Atlanta The Sisterhood…
My prayer is this… let’s not fight over was the show appropriate or not. Where we need to concentrate our prayer is that THE EDITORS that edit the show will not edit the “Christ” out. That’s what the real battle is.
He goes on to issue a prayer…
My prayer is this… that when all is said and done that ‘The Sisterhood’ will touch somebodies lives, that somebody will see an example of a godly woman and a godly man, and a godly marriage.
And that Christ will be glorified in the end and that the editors will have no control of that message coming across.
That’s really what we need to be praying.
