(Reported By Ricky Scaparo) I could not believe my ears yesterday when I heard Mo’nique and her husband in a recent interview on the new program called “The Preachers”. Mo’Nique has been quite open about her open marriage with husband Sidney Hicks, But now has revealed she was the one who suggested the unconventional relationship from the start of their ten-year marriage.
She went on to say “It was my idea,” she proudly proclaimed during an appearance on the new talk show. So what was here idea and solution to a successful marriage”? She was referring to having and practicing an “Open Marriage” which the Word of God clearly defines as “Adultery”. She even went on to say
“There may be times I want to be with other men,” the Precious star said bluntly, before adding her motivation was out of respect for her husband, “I wanted to be open and honest with the person I was going to spend the rest of my life with.” Her husband Sidney was in total agreement with her idea, he’s also not the controlling type. He added: “Who am I to tell her what she can and cannot do?” Or who!
What’s even more shocking is the fact that Jamal Bryant, Who is the pastor and founder of Empowerment Temple AME Church in Baltimore, Maryland commended the idea and never rebuked it nor tried to sway the couple from their decision! This immediately reminded me of the Church of Corinth and how they were rebuked by the Apostle Paul when it was reported to him of a sexual relationship taking place in the Church between a young man and his mother-in-law. Did Paul commend the relationship? No! He rebuked the Church for commending it and turning a blind-eye to the sin! He then went on to give instructions to the pastor of what to do about it!:
1 Corinthians 5: 1- 9 – It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife. And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you. For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed, In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, To deliver such one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:
The part of all of this that sickens me is the fact that this was broadcasted on National television and has set an example to other believers to follow! And to top it off a pastor stamps his approval of it! how long will the Church continue to allow this type of “Leaven” to continue to spread in the body? Surely the “Falling Away” is picking up speed as we speak!
