Meagan Good slams critics of her blue dress from 2013 BET Awards

2013 BET Awards - Backstage Winner's Room

“@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 is 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 had 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.” 

This is not the first time that the Good has defended expressing her sexuality.

    This is the self taught vision of a 1st Generational Christian who is a Babe in Christianity. She does not understand that her body is a temple and you represent so much more. Your are a Lamp to those who walk in darkness; if your are walking just like darkness..you can’t be the Light. Be Patient with her as she grows. The Mother’s of The Church have not done their Jobs effectively.. It Takes Time..Judge Yea Not!

      I wouldn’t expect The Mother’s of The Church to be doing The Priest (Devon Franklin) of the matrimonial home job.

    I really don’t care what she wears, her sins are her own responsibility. I am very offended that she misused the word “convicted” where she should have used “conflicted” looking uneducated and ignorant in the process. She should stick to using simple familiar words!

      She used it correctly as in meaning that her attire it isn’t something she feels God has condemned her for.

    Yes, be patient with her. She will get there. The dress was cute our assets are not for everyone to see. You want to be respectful in all things.

    I agree with being patient with her as she learns more about The Lord and what he expects of us. Whatever we do & however we present ourselves is for the glorification of The Lord & not our sexuality. We want to attract souls to Christ & not our sexuality. We make mistakes & learn as we grow in Christ. It’s not about us
