American Idol Jordin Sparks a Christian Single

American Idol Jordin Sparks is now one of the top 9 Idol finalists. She is also a dedicated Christian single girl who sings to bring glory to Christ. In fact, before trying out for American Idol, Jordin Sparks toured with Michael W. Smith, one of Contemporary Christian Music Radio’s top stars. I guess that’s why Michael has been actively encouraging other believers to vote in Jordin Sparks as this year’s American Idol winner.

Jordin Sparks and Other American Idol Christians

That’s right, Jordin Sparks is not the only Christian American Idol Finalist. Last week three other Christians joined Jordin in the top 10: Chris Sligh (unfortunately he got booted out last night), Phil Stacey (my fellow student at Liberty Seminary) and cutie pie, Melinda Doolittle, who also happens to be a single Christian.

You would think with all this positive press that gives Christians a worldwide stage for sharing about Jesus, believers would be supportive of these folks. Nope. Instead you hear attacks from some that question their faith and commitment for singing a secular song. Give me a break!

My take on all this nonsense is best expressed by American Idol Chris Sligh. In addition to having been on American Idol with Jordin Sparks, Chris serves as worship leader for his home church in South Carolina:

“I am first and foremost a Christ-follower. I am also a rock star. I don’t feel the two are diametrically opposed. If you do…I feel bad for you.”

Bible Verse of Day

-Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving-Colossians 3:23,24

    There is another Christian idol, who got eliminated, this season: Sabrina Sloan. She was recommended by my pastor Rick Warren (Saddleback Church (saddlebackchurch.com ). She may not be as vocal as Jordin, but it’s good to know that there is an emergence of Christ-centric people in mainstream television.

    I also refer to the golf professional that recently won, Zach Johnson, who is a devoted Christ follower, along with his fellow competitor, Aaron Baddeley.

    I’m sure there’s a list of others on the net.

    I completely agree with the statement above concerning Jordin Sparks. As a personal believer myself, I know how it feels to be completely bashed and scorned for listening or supporting the music of certain secular artists like Jordin Sparks. Don’t get me wrong here, I’m not saying to go out and listen to explicit music that condescends and blasphemes God but music about love and the hurt that may sometimes come with it. Jordan Sparks exemplifies the kind of artist I would listen to because she sings very tasteful love songs with NO COMPROMISE. I think Christians have a problem finding the fine line between secular (which, by the way, means “worldly”) music and just genuine and innocent harmless songs (like some love songs you hear).
