NEW COUPLE ALERT? Is Marvin Sapp DATING "BBW:LA" Star Imani Showalter?

 

 

"Basketball Wives: LA" star Imani Showalter may be trading a basketball for a Bible real soon.  Sources say the reality star is now dating Gospel-singer Marvin Sapp.  Get the deets inside.....

HipHollywood reports that Marvin Sapp and Imani Showalter began dating shortly after meeting at Verizon’s How Sweet the Sound choir competition on Oct. 28 in LA.

A source said, 

“The two exchanged information and immediately started corresponding after the show. A week or so later Marvin flew her to Grand Rapids to visit him and so she could experience his church."

The source added,

“They’ve been spending quite a bit of time together. They’re definitely falling in love and I wouldn’t be surprised if they ended up getting married."

Since October, Imani has been spotted with Marvin at various concert dates and preaching engagements as well as the Stellar Gospel Awards.

So far, Marvin's church accepts Imani, but they want her to stop tweeting risque photos! 

One member was quoted as saying:

“If she seriously wants to be with him and plans to become the First Lady of his church, the last thing she needs to be doing is tweeting risqué photos of herself.  That’s just a big no-no!”

Hmmm...

The Randomness:

1.  Keisha Knight Pulliam is getting SUED by her former agents for over a quarter of a million dollars!  STORY

The requirement in the vows

The requirement in the vows states "until death do ye part". He is free to date whomever he wants. When did dating become a cardinal sin. It is best that each of us work out our own soul salvation. Let's not judge Pastor Sapp too harshly. As a matter of fact, why don't you read the story of Hosea and Gomer in the bible. Be blessed and not judgemental.

Oh please...get off your high

Oh please...get off your high horse. He is a human being. Stop idolizing men and putting them up on pedestals like any of us are infallible. Besides, nobody knows for sure if anything is going on with these two. All this is purely conjecture. If there is anything going on, she will only be a rebound...y'all can quote me on that.

What difference does it make

What difference does it make how long his wife has been? She's gone and is not coming back. You don't the plan God has for him or how he's going help turn this young lady around. AND, I'm sure he's not going to miss your support of his music, considering there's a lot more people out there who's less judgmental and support HIS right to date whomever he likes!!!

I know Marvin Sapp is lonely

I know Marvin Sapp is lonely and it is time he starts dating. His wife died in 2010 but this girl is not pastor's wife material. What kind of church does he pastor? She leaves nothing to the imagination. She is letting it all hang out. If he marries her he could change the name of his church to Church of the Hoochies!!

What kind of example is she

What kind of example is she setting for young women. I wouldn't want my daughter posting crap like that. A true women of God shows by her character and her respect for her self and others. She is not ready to be a pastors wife. I. Think he would lose a lot of respect from the gospel community by chosing someone that doesn't care how they expose themselves.

I'm not judging because I am

I'm not judging because I am not God and I don't know either of them personally to say much about it.. but all I know is he's supposed to be a Godly man and from what I've seen on BBW I don't think I would excatly call Imani "Godly". However, I don't remember her being as rachet as the rest either... What I do know is the Bible says not to be "unequally yoked" ..so I hope Mr. Mavin Sapp knows what he's doing and she's not playing him. Other than that, if she has developed a close, sincere relationship with the Lord and Marvin isn't compromising what he believes, and this is an honest relationship.. then I wish both of them the best of luck.

Remember Jesus did not com for the GODLY, but to save the ungodly among us. Let he who is without sin cast the 1st stone!!!!

Nicely put. I don't at all

Nicely put. I don't at all think you were being judgemental. Sometimes people need to learn what judging is. If I'm looking at something that looks just like a duck walks like one and quacks like one I would imagine its a duck. It doesn't matter how much a person talk about God and like you said we don't know them personally but what we're seeing with our eyes doesn't look Godly. If she do call herself save and sanctified why be on such a show showing her flesh like that and posting these pics. The bible says to not let your good be evil spoken of. I don't think getting with a God fearing man can change a woman thats something she should be working on herself. And I do hope that this is all for the right reasons and he's not jeopardizing his salvation for no one. It's possible to still be in vulnerable state of mind especially if your wife hasn't been gone that long. Whatever the outcome I hope both are in it for the right reasons.

My sister in Christ you are

My sister in Christ you are still being judgmental. None of us can say what her personal relationship with God is. Marvin Sapp has the right to date and remarry, as long as God approves. And we don't know who God has chosen for him, that's none of our business. His deceased wife would want him to move forward with his life; she wouldn't want him to continue his journey alone. We need to support each other, not crucify one another. Christ died for all of us. His music is very instrumental to many hurting souls. He has been an open book and testimony for what he has gone through. He music will continue touch lives.

I agree with the lady who

I agree with the lady who said that if you see evidence of something, there is nothing wrong with calling it what it is. The bible makes it clear that Christians are to judge, but righteously so. It is the Word of God that does the judging ultimately. As Christians, we should not be okay with just anything that goes on. If we did not judge according to God’s word, the unsaved would remain unsaved. If you know that someone is engaging in ungodly acts, if you are a Christian, not a hypocrite, then you should minister to that individual. You have to see the sin and acknowledge the sin to address the sin. The problem is when someone tries to make the determination that another individual is surely going to hell. We have no way of knowing that because we may see an individual in sin, but may not be present when they asked God for forgiveness and decided to not sin in the same area again. However, in the case of Marvin Sapp, we do not know that he is sinning. I don't think anyone is condemning him or Imani, but based on the EVIDENCE some have noted, it may be that the two are unequally yoked. According to 2 Cor 6:14 we are to “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?” It is for Pastor Sapp to evaluate this and make a Godly decision. Pastor Sapp knows whether they are equally yoked or unequally yoked. I just hope he does not allow his flesh to lead him in this matter. Being that he is in ministry he has to be careful about the decisions that he makes, especially publicly. He is representing God and there are many who are looking to him as being an example of the way they should live. True Believers, especially ministers have to be careful that they do not lead people down the wrong path because of the example that they set. As far as his late wife, unless you talked to her, you could not possibly know if she wanted him to move on. Some people believe that you marry once and once only. I personally believe there is nothing wrong with him choosing to remarry, if he so chooses, but can't say his wife would have felt the same.

Godly is a funny word. We are all human. I'd rather a genuine person than a "1 day a week phony pious person ".If she is "whipping it" on him-then he isn't what he stands for. why not just say, they met, had some things in common, good luck to them. Men are men. Im sure preachers look at hoes the same way that they look at the "godly phonies" on Sunday .
