Reverend Marvin Winans -- the guy who MC'd Whitney Houston's funeral service -- should NOT have been driving when he was carjacked last week ... because his license was suspended.

In fact, Winans is a wanted man -- with an active warrant out for his arrest, this according to DetroitNews.com.

Marvin -- whose family members are gospel music legends -- reportedly lost his driving privileges on May 9th after failing to pay 2 tickets issued back in December ... one for impeding traffic and the other from a previous driving on a suspended license incident.

After missing his court date, a judge issued a warrant for Marvin's arrest on March 15 -- two months before Winans was carjacked at a Detroit gas station.

As we previously reported, Winans claims he was approached by 4 men ... who roughed him up and jacked his Infinity SUV.

Winans' rep released a statement saying, "The issue is being addressed ... A lot of that is handled by his administrative team, not by him."

Fun Fact -- according to DetroitNews.com, Winans has been ticketed 11 times since 2009.

Maybe getting carjacked was gods way of telling him to stop driving the fricken car.

It's a suspended license. It's not like he was arrested for picking up a prostitute. Should have got it renewed but not really that big of a deal. But of course, people are about to and are going to bring up his position in the church because they have nothing better to do.

It's being handled by his "administrative team". LOL ... Yeah, like he's wayyyy too busy to pay his own traffic tickets. He must spend all his time trying to convince people that he's important!

According to other sources, the man has quite a few skeletons in his closet and it's believed that the carjacking was a set up by someone he owes money to.

Everything about this con man is bad news, including the B.S. carjacking on a car I bet he was behind in payments on.

Great way to represent the black people Reverend! Wait.... did rednecks beat him up and steal his car? Nope. Once again the black population disappoints. Get your crap together! Stop breaking laws! Stop killing and hurting and stealing!!

Okay, I've seen Parking Wars: Detroit and they DON'T PLAY.
Now on a more serious note, this man is no Christian. I don't give a crap if his family are all ministers and gospel singers, a true Christian obeys the laws of the land , whether it's taxes or vehicle laws. This clown puts a black eye on all Christians.
