EEW MAGAZINE MINISTRY NEWS
Super star rapper DMX, who has had more than his fair share of legal trouble and struggles with drug addiction, made a surprising revelation. He has been ordained as a Deacon at a Christian ministry in New York State and is looking forward to delivering his very first sermon soon.
DMX made the stunning announcement during an interview with website Globalgrind.com.
“I read the whole bible. I just been made a deacon at the church I used to go to—Morning Star. I would like my first sermon to be there or in Yonkers.”
Though the controversial celebrity is still grappling with many personal issues, apparently, authority figures at Morning Star in upstate New York believe he is ready to take on a leadership role in the ministry.
DMX, interestingly, muses about what it means to be ready for true transformation and realizes that reading the Bible is not enough.
“The biggest step is not in the studying, reading, but the wanting to change the way you live. Wanting different things for yourself, and making that change because if you still want to drink and smoke, you could read as much as you want, that doesn’t mean you’re ready.”
In 2009, DMX, real name, Earl Simmons said he would pursue preaching in Jersey City, NJ and he also completed a Gospel album prior to his incarceration.
Despite multiple jail stints and highly publicized turmoil in his life, the rapper maintains that he desires to serve the Lord, eventually retire from music, and settle down as a preacher.
