Native American ministers in music
"Though Peter is proud of his Native American heritage," said Perkins, "he will tell you that he has found his true, eternal identity in Jesus Christ through his new birth, and his study of the truth of God's word, the Bible. He understands the heartaches that life can bring, and God has used the pain in his life to make him a wiser, humbler man."
"Music is a vehicle, allowing me to cross barriers that would not otherwise be open to me. I want what I do to make a difference in people's lives. Jesus is the life difference."
I don't know, but I believe studies have shown that the "red states" (aka the most Christian states) have the worst "family values." That suggests Jesus is indeed the "life difference"--but not in the way Whitebird meant.
