Since I no longer really float around in this part of my world anymore I missed his announcement a few months ago that he has incurable cancer and only has a few short years left to live:-( So what is he doing about it? Going out in a big way. Taking the Gospel to as many as he can. Many props and prayers for him. He stood out among many of the, and I hate to say it, lame Christian artists that are out there or where out there back in the late 80’s/early 90’s. He broke the mold and was as top notch as any secular act. Just maybe with a more important message. Crafty and Witty and about twenty years ahead of his time for Christendom he pushed the limits that needed to be pushed in his message and how it was presented. He basically was the head in Entertainment and not the tail.
I still think he hid has “preference” like several others in the christian world and I don’t see what the big deal is anyway if he did. But that’s between him and God. You can’t deny how much good he has done and people’s lives that have been changed and continues to change.
From his facebook page:
“I used to go to movies in the afternoon, now I go see doctors,” he said.
The singer listed three reasons for his post: “First, I want to put an end to all the rumors. Second, I ask for your prayers. And 3rd, I want you all to know that I will continue to minister and win souls until I can’t do it any longer.
“My life has always been about ministry,” he explained. “I have a call of God to touch lives with the gospel of Jesus Christ and that’s what I will do until the Lord calls me home.”
He asked his Facebook followers not to fill his page with cancer treatment remedies, but encouraged them to come see him the next time he’s in their area.
“Bring someone who doesn’t know the Lord or who needs to be healed,” he wrote. “I will always pray for the sick and I’m also going to step up the intensity of my message at these events. I will not leave this world quietly and I want the devil to know that he put cancer on absolutely the wrong Italian.
“I have a few good years and before it’s too late I want to see your faces, shake your hands and hug your necks. But mostly I want to see one of you get healed of what threatens your future and I really want to see someone you love come to Christ. Now lets get back to business, we have to work while it’s day for soon the night comes,”
