Meagan Good Responds to Haters and Christian Critics “I Am Not Any Less Holy”

meagan good dress bet awards 2013

Just because she’s saved, doesn’t mean she cannot be sexy. That’s the message Meagan Good wants to share with the dozens of fans who commented on her Twitter and Instagram accounts lashing out about the sultry dress she wore to the BET Awards.

The wife of film executive and Seventh Day Adventist minister, DeVon Franklin, has been criticized for over a year about her provocative style of dress by those who feel that it’s inappropriate for a First Lady. But Meagan isn’t bowing to the pressure.

She released the following statement to push back.

What do you think? Do you agree with Meagan?

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 the 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 ..

The MEDIA is absolutely not a way to get your point cross to her. Many of the comments are callous. Love covers. Allow God to do what he does, balance. She is first lady by marriage, not by choice. If you think she needs prayer, (and WE ALL DO) then hold her down in prayer that she continues to grow is grace and you in mercy. As far as her marriage, let her and hubby get down with that and deal. Again, Love Covers

For those who wish to put them selfs on public display such as hookers or some other carnal profession, but for a person and especially her pastor husband the dress was totally inappropriate.There are principles and standards that christians must abide by. We can be in the world but we have to seperate our selfs from the world.

There is no condemnation in Christ Jesus.  The dress was hot & she looked fabulous in it, however, it's inappropriate for a wife, not just a pastor's wife, a wife period.  Her husband may have been okay with it but he as a man should have asked her not to wear it.  She allowed other women husbands to look upon what is sacred to her & her husband. When you know better, you do better.

You're suppose to give God your best and dress modest. That was not a modest dress. Any decent woman not claiming to be a preachers wife would have class and wear a dress  that leaves something to the imagination. But they are not Biblical, or following the Bible so it does not matter.

I have attended Church functions where many women included the preachers wife wore sexy dresses.  People who always find the time to complain, need a life.  Stop hating ii isn't a good look
