Everything Is Going Down, But The Word Of God……In a recent interview Kim Burrell reveals her authentic truth.
According to EEW:
For those who think Pastor Kim Burrell has been hiding out in fear and shame after a sermon snippet of her condemning homosexuality went viral and sparked major backlash, think again.
Despite being dragged through the mud, in a newly published interview, the award-winning gospel-jazz vocalist, who has kept a low profile since Dec. 30th of last year, is bold as ever, and is letting it be known, “I would never apologize for preaching against sin—never.”
Burrell gave her first exclusive interview with Jerri P. Beasley on the “Keep the Morning Moving Morning Show,” where she talked about the recent controversy, the death of her brother, and what’s going on in her life now.
“I need the people to know, don’t ever expect an apology from me,” said the 44-year-old, whose sermon called gay people “perverted” and prophesied certain death this year on leaders that hypocritically proclaim the gospel while living a homosexual lifestyle.
The exclusive post-controversy interview, which was recorded Saturday, Feb. 18, the day before a tribute concert to Burrell’s late brother, Kevin Jordan, who died of complications from a massive stroke on Feb. 6, solidified the singer’s position on the matter once and for all.
“I have to please God,” the global artist said. Even though she is cast as hateful, bigoted and mean-spirited by mainstream media, she says doing God’s will is her only focus. “In all my ways, I have to acknowledge Him and He’ll direct my path, just as everybody else,” she said.
It has unquestionably been a rough ride for the pastor of the Houston-based Love and Liberty Fellowship Church, whose home was swarmed by media in the initial days following the uprising.
“I have not interviewed. CNN has called me. Every outlet you can name—every outlet. Think of any of them in the world. They have called me since Dec. 30th. They’ve been outside my house with cameras pulled. They have been on top of my house with helicopters,” she said.
At one point, Burrell shared that her close friend Stevie Wonder, who has been a comfort to her in the wake of her brother’s death, flew her out to Los Angeles so she could gain refuge from the media’s relentless assault.
