Amy Grant Cashes in Once Again on Jesus Coat-Tails

Jesus made her famous, now Amy Grant cashes in one more time.

In case you hadn't heard, singer Amy Grant is hosting a new "reality TV" series for NBC called "Three Wishes." It's slated to air beginning September 23. In the show Amy travels to a town and finds people wanting a wish fulfilled-think Pseudo-Christian Pop Star meets Aladdin's Magic Lamp.

I'm sure she is getting a nice paycheck for her hosting duties.

Why am I so tough on lil 'ol Amy?

She has become the typical "Christian" celebrity?she can divorce her husband of 16 years, decide (despite Biblical prohibition*) to remarry Vince Gill, parlay her Christian notoriety into a lucrative endorsement deal with Target, decided to "cross over" from singing about Jesus to singing about "whatever".

In an interview with Christianity Today**, Grant talks of her detractors:

"Some day, this is all going to play out in heaven, and everybody will see the full picture, and it won't even matter."

While I agree that it will all be sorted out in heaven, I suspect that a healthy respect for Jesus and morality here probably will pay off there too. Maybe Amy sees Jesus as her "big buddy" who just overlooks all our willfulness.

Plastic Dashboard Jesus.

Amy and Vince, it's time to repent. Surely someone will quote the adage: "You can't unscramble scrambled eggs." True, but you can repent and return to celibacy. Isn't it time a famous Christian actually took responsibility for their hedonism?

I won't be holding my breath.
