2 Thessalonians 1:12 speaks of a prayer that Jesus would be glorified through the life of His people. It is a similar prayer that every member of the Body of Christ should pray, so that His name be lifted and others be drawn to Christ.
Whether or not reality TV accomplishes this goal is debatable. Recently, Omarosa Manigault, 40, who first made a name for herself on “The Apprentice” in 2003, weighed in.
In an interview with The Jasmine Brand during BET’s Celebration of Gospel, the woman known as the biggest villain in reality TV history, expressed her view that “anytime you can get people talking about the church, reflecting about religion, reflecting about their relationships with God,” whether the behavior played out on screen is good or bad, “we’re winning.”
Some argue, however, that negativity, drama and cat fights undermine the message of faith, thereby neutralizing the effectiveness of the media platform.
Not so in Manigault’s mind.
Despite her bad reputation, she is an ordained minister and assistant pastor of Weller Street Missionary Baptist church who is adamant that reality television “is a vehicle to introducing, reintroducing people, and encouraging people to be a part of the Kingdom.”
