Ya Gotta Love the "Personal God" Idea .....

MSNBC headline caught my eye as I started up the computer this morning – God Wants Blige to Wear Bling:
Mary J. Blige says she has found religion, but she makes no apologies for her earthly materialism. In fact, she says God has willed her to wear bling.

"My God is a God who wants me to have things," the singer tells May's Blender magazine. "He wants me to bling. He wants me to be the hottest thing on the block. I don't know what kind of God the rest of y'all are serving, but the God I serve says, 'Mary, you need to be the hottest thing this year, and I'm gonna make sure you're doing that'."

I might actually laugh at this if it weren't actually sad once I stop to think about it.

Hmmm...a God who wants people to have bling. When did God change his name from Abba to Cartier?

Gospel of Mary J. Blige Chapter 1

1. Hear me O Lord,

And make me like unto Mary J Blige. 2. Rain blessings upon her, for her
mighty witness Lord. 3. For she hath shown your servant the error of his
admiration of the Bonhoeffers and Mother Teresas of this world. 4. She
hath taken a stand against all that is meekness, and lowliness, and she
hath shown forth your bling, mighty God. 5. Let the bling of her
holiness shine, as the sun o Lord of Glory. 6. In a world hungry for
your love, let the bling cover the earth, as the mink covers her back.
7. Who is like her o lord, who trods in Prada, and Gucci? 8. Her fame
is spread among the heathen, and her righteousness is shouted from the
hilltop. 9. Mary J Blige, shall reign in splendor, her fame shall be
preached to the generations. 10. From the lineage of Claimit. 11. For
Nameit beget claimit, and claimit beget Hagan. Now Hagan beget Copeland,
12. and Copeland beget Paul, who looked upon Jan's pink hair and was
pleased. 13. Now Jan was found with child. And when the season of her
delivery was at hand, she brought forth a daughter, 14. And she wrapped
the child in designer furs, and laid her in cash. 15. And the child
did grow in grace, and did teach the heathen, that it is the money that
is salvation. 16. Make me like unto Mary J Blige, o Lord. 17. for she
hath shown that it is not bread for your people to be without.
