Things You Need To Know About Bullwinkle
His Rise to Fame
Bishop Bullwinkle is an American soul singer and has attracted a huge amount of attention from all around the world because of a video he posted on his YouTube channel that went viral and was watched by lots of people. It made him more popular even though the video was received with mixed reactions from viewers based on individual reasoning and interpretation of the facts he presented. The title of the song and video was “Hell 2 Da Naw Naw” and in the video, Bishop Bullwinkle, dressed in a white suit and sunglasses with a white hat, addressed the issue of hypocrisy in the church.
The video had over 3.5 million views and over 4,000 likes over a short period of time after it was released. The song was talking about the hypocrisy of preachers and what is going on in many churches today that many people are unaware of. He implored the use of a different approach to bringing out the long overdue truth of some deeds that are happening in so many churches today.
A Preacher Slept With His Wife
In the song, he cited the fact that many pastors and bishops are not doing what they are supposed to do. He said some are after the money which they get from the congregation and some even go as far as taking advantage of single sisters, married women and also widows. In his next song titled “Some Preacher”, Bishop Bullwinkle also exposed the corrupt things that happen in the inner circle of the church. He even mentioned the fact that he has been a victim too; a preacher, like the one he described in his song, slept with his wife.
Bullwinkle believes in calling things as he sees it. He is a man that is not afraid to say his mind. He is very bold and has shown how much he hates the hypocrisy that is in the church today. So he thought of a way to expose these ills to the society and these line of thought is what has brought him the fame he enjoys today.
Despite the fact that there are some churches (and pastors) that are guilty of the things mentioned by Bishop Bullwinkle, there are really good pastors and preachers out there who are still interested in preaching the gospel with sincerity and truly concerned about the interest and well being of their followers. So it will be unfair to tag all preachers as “hypocrites” but at the same time, people ought to be aware of all these ills so that they can take note and not become a prey at the hands of these conmen.
