So Whitney is dead, but what about Bobby Brown?

There has been many talk about Whitney Houston’s death and my prayers go out to the family at this testing time but in all of the commotion, what about Bobby Brown? Yes, I understand that he has made some mistakes and he will probably be villified by the world for the rest of his life for ‘contributing’ to Whitney’s death and he is facing the consequences for a lot of his actions but I had to ask myself, what should the Christians response be to Bobby Brown. It can be so easy for us as Christians to forget that some of us were sinners and it took God’s grace to come and rescue us.

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (1 Cor 6:9-11)

Someone took time to share their faith with us, someone took time to give us that gospel tract, someone took time to bear with us while we was doing crazy stuff, someone prayed for us continually, someone had compasion on us when we was in our madness, someone listened to us while we was hurting inside and no-one knew about it, someone understood while we behaved why we did because of negative things that happened to us early in our life.

Lets pray for Bobby Brown as God’s hand is not too short that He cannot reach him even when to us, it may look hopeless. With God, all things are possible.

  1. Good thought, Alan. People are always ready to throw away the sinner but aren’t we all glad that Christ didn’t throw us away? We are all sinners! I don’t know what Bobby did to influence Whitney. God still says we are responsible for our own actions despite who led us astray. I pray that God will help and heal Bobby and bring him to the truth of Jesus Christ.

    • I have called you back from the ends of the earth, saying, ‘You are my servant.’
      For I have chosen you and will not throw you away. Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you.I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.

      Isaiah 41:9-10

    Let’s talk about forgiveness.

    Whitney, for whatever reason, was fragile and was taken advantage of by her husband.
    It is a widely held belief that Bobby Brown introduced, and encouraged, drug use to Whitney Houston. It also seems that she was sexually addicted to him.. This was an unhealthy and unChristian marriage. In fact, something really evil took place that turned her from her Christian roots. I’m particularly worried about her daughter. But should we excuse and forgive evil?
    It’s difficult to reconcile Bobby Brown’s actions and attitude vis a vis forgiveness. I don’t think it is really within my power to forgive at this point. I can only pray that he repents and the power of the Holy Spirit descends upon him.

    But the man did not even have the humility to accept his place at her funeral and walked out.
    Lord have mercy…
