We are going to start this post off by informing you that it's very wrong for this COGIC family to judge Bishop Corletta Vaughn for her position in the ministry and is not living up to the standard of pure holiness. If you have been watching 'Preachers of Detroit', you will recall Pastor Don Shelby Jr discussing the name of his children's gospel group, 'The Shelby Five', (as stated on their church website, (Burning Bush International). First of all, why do they have to model the name similar to 'The Jackson Five, a secular family group? Why can't the Shelby children allow God to give a name that not only represents complete holiness, but also originality.
To be honest with you, we've been holding off discussing the issue with this family since 'Preachers of Detroit' Episode 1, but we must finally give you our opinion. Whenever there was a discussion in the presence of Bishop Corletta Vaughn or without her being present, First Lady Bonita Shelby allegedly mentions in her own words she believes in standing by her man, not being in the forefront. As a COGIC woman since she has such a traditional value as the first lady, why is she and Pastor Don Shelby allowing their children to perform in such a worldly fashion?
