Meagan Good is easily one of the sexiest people in Hollywood, and we’d like to argue, around the world. This is a woman who exudes sex appeal, and that’s even when she’s covered from head-to-toe. She was simply born that way.
In fact, at the BET Awards this past Sunday, Meagan showed up in a midnight blue dress that hugged her curves, had a plunging neckline and slit on the side.
She was the sexiest woman there, and with that, the Christian community became enraged that she has the audacity to call herself one of them.
It seems that ever since she’s become more adamant about expressing her love for God and subsequently married her preacher hunk and Columbia Pictures executive, DeVon Franklin, devoted Christians and much of the public are up in arms.
Why? Well, when you think of God and holiness, you don’t ever really add sexy, sexuality, and sex appeal into the mix, do you? Women of the church are instructed to be modest.
So does God and sexy mix? After people attacked her on Instagram, Meagan Good answered that for us:
“@adriannacolbert That’s the thing Girl- is that I don’t feel convicted about this at all. my spirit is saddened that our people only know one way to think and process things..
I’m not any less holy because the dress I wore -I may not be who people think I should be -but I’m morphing into exactly who God wants me to be.. My excuse is never “I’m going to do me” and I don’t feel that I need to make an excuse or defend or what I wore .. I know I have a responsibility -and I’m working daily to fulfill the full potential of all God has created me to be..
A dialogue was started about my character, integrity, my walk with God and my Husband -simply based on a dress that I wore.., Of course I’m going to have a reaction to people saying negative things… It’s just sad..
Makes me sad not regretful.. My heart and spirit is always open to whatever my Father would want to share with me… And my spirit tells me to be exactly who I authentically am -because that’s what’s going to reach who I was authentically designed to touch.. people like me who are often misunderstood and told their cut of God’s promise -because they don’t look the role …when God doesn’t care about us “looking the role”..he has always cared about bringing us in -and us being whatever we need to be to bring Those left out in ..
And it just makes me sad that us as Christians can’t see beyond our initial reaction and don’t seek God before they attack other brothers and sisters …and never think for one moment that: God knows what he’s doing and he uses everything for his glory .. and he has a plan for every specific situation.. I [didn’t have] intentions on anything .. Merely picked a dress I saw and loved … God knows my heart and that I didn’t do anything wrong .. And he will use even people’s thoughts to bring him glory.”
Well said Meagan. Keep getting your sexy on!
