“A worldly song should not be played in the house of God”
Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah, general overseer of Glorious Word Power Ministry International has chastised gospel musician Sonnie Badu for dancing to secular music “Adult Music” during his wedding ceremony with Ann-Marie last Saturday, August 23rd in Northumberland, London.
Speaking to Kwame Nkrumah ‘Tikese’, host of the ‘Ade Akye Abia’ morning show on Okay FM, the man of God stated that playing secular music in the house of God is against the word of God..
“A worldly song should not be played in the house of God. If a christian is marrying in the presence of God and pastors in a church premises, you cannot play child’s game there. No matter the status of the person in the society – whether pastor, musician or anybody, if you are getting married in the house of God, you should never play secular music” he stated.
Owusu Bempah further added that he would have ordered them to stop the music if he was the pastor officiating the wedding ceremony.
“If the song was played at an event after the wedding ceremony outside the church auditorium, it would not have been a problem. Even with secular songs there are stages in it. There are some songs which sends out a good message and others, otherwise.”
“All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient. So if we say we are Christians, why should we play secular music in the house of God? It is not a good example.
I will never agree with anybody who plays a worldly song in the house of God where children of the Most High have gathered,” he stated.
Sonnie Badu who was answering a question posed to him by a fan on twitter asked the mistake he committed in dancing to the song “Adult Music” by Kwabena Kwabena which featured Samini.
