Against this grossly oversimplified but I think accurate characterization of the pop-God axis comes "U Saved Me," the new single by R Kelly. It precedes the two albums that Kelly will release next month: one, Happy People, will consist of "step"/dance numbers, and the other, U Saved Me, will contain only "inspirational" songs, according to the release notes. The "U" of the album's title is, of course, Jesus Christ, and the single, which I first heard on one of your standard Infinity Broadcasting "urban" stations, is as nakedly evangelical a song as you are likely to hear on secular radio.
