The Black Church Title For The Senior Pastor Wife Will Never Die!



Reader, since "First Lady" is not a Biblical concept, but a created title that distinguish the pastor's wife from other women in the church, some folks are somewhat offended by this. Growing up in the constructs of the black church I can still remember how sometimes the pastor's wife can be the loneliest person in the Church.

Pastor Jamal Bryant: Burying A Bishop Eddie Long, Cremating An Issue?

Reader I'm some what surprised that any high profile pastor would speak so candidly about the Eddie Long issue as Pastor Jamal Bryant has done in the below video. Pastor Jamal Bryant is discussing the church silence on dealing with homosexuality & abuse in a humanistic fashion.

Some say that Bishop Eddie Long death is the judgment of God cleaning His houses from the pulpit first to the Pew and, it's a warning to all other ministers, preachers, and teacher, etc that's living as a double agent.

Donald Trump Inauguration Team Tries To Land Black Gospel Singers For Inauguration Gig, Was Vicki Yohe or Martha Munizzi Not Available??


Reader it looks like Donald Trump Inauguration team are trying to get some of the hottest Black Gospel acts today to perform at his Inauguration. According to the latest press release Gospel Singer Travis Greene, Jonathan McReynolds and R&B singer Chrisette Michele have been asked to perform at the festivities on Jan. 20. 

To be honest, I thought that most likely, only country music acts would be about the only acts Trump would be successful at getting for his inauguration. Anyhow, Jawn Murray posted the following question to his social media page last week and again today:

Teen Defends Woman Who Kidnapped Her From Hospital At Birth And Raised Her.



Reader, I've literally read this story 6+ times since seeing it on the news yesterday.  Each report with a little more detail than the previous... I feel so bad for that baby girl and both of the families involved  More details about the 18-year-old, who was kidnapped at birth REVEALED! The woman that kidnapped her was a social worker who went to church every Sunday... Although she's willing to meet her real mother, she's still defending her kidnapper... The girl claims the woman is her mom and not a FELON.

I hope that this young lady realizes that she is in fact a victim. That the woman who kidnapped her was selfish and disobeyed the law, that this is the worst crime that anyone could do to a mother and to her "the baby". 

Can God Be Using Steve Harvey???

Reader Steve Harvey is coming under some major fire for the meeting he had yesterday with Donald Trump. According to social media Trump has tapped Steve Harvey to create an African American initiative with Ben Carson. Black folks are really in their feelings about this meeting, but in my mind, I'm thinking why in the heck can't God be using Steve Harvey?

Thank You Rev. Anthony Evans President Of The National Black Church Initiative For Publicly Supporting Pastor Kim Burrell.


Reader 😁😁, the National Black Church Initiative (NBCI), a faith-based coalition of 34,000 churches comprised of 15 denominations and 15.7 million African Americans, is sending a powerful message to those who will berate, denounce and condemn Pastor Kim Burrell.

Anthony Evans President of the National Black Church Initiative says, “I am not sure what has happened to Black folk, that they are willing to denounce ministers who have prayed for them, who have supported them and who have loved them and healed them because a white lesbian says that they are evil.

Rumor On The Street Is The Black Church "Pimps Our Homosexuality Talent And Damns Their Souls At The Same Time"!!!

😯😯 Reader the LGBT community is still speaking out against Pastor Kim Burrell. Rev. Irene Monroe weighs in the timely issue of LGBT folks in the Black Church. In her latest Op Ed, the Rev. Irene Monroe pinned a reminder telling us how the Black Church uses, and abuses gay Christians. And, according to many the article is absolutely right! The church has been pimping gay people for years for their talent. The church has been condoning their lifestyle because you've been using them for so long to direct our choirs, and sing our songs. Clearly the church has some explaining to do for this.

Atlanta Pastor Criticized For Carrie Underwood Performace!


Reader,😐😐sometimes it's hard living in a world of hate. Not all who call themselves Christian follow the true teachings of Christ. Carrie Underwood jumped on stage with David Crowder during Passion Conference in Atlanta last week, they sang a worship song together. Then everyone involved is getting blasted for allowing someone with a "pro LGBT" stance to participate in the worship service.

Lord Have Mercy, Black Pastors Defend Sen. Jeff Sessions, Urge Senate to Confirm Him as Attorney General!!

Reader this a head scratcher for me, these men obviously aren't members of the NAACP who took over Jeff Sessions' office last week. I can't recall in my mind a group of white clergy doing a press conference to support any controversial black politicians. Has that ever happened in the history of America? I don't think so!  Yet, these men came together to support Donald Trump who was sued for discrimination against black people and lost.

So The Gospel Music Community Is Ok With Kim Burrell Being Asked To Not Take Part In The BMI Gospel Music Event????

Reader I wasn't aware that Pastor Kim Burrell has been 'uninvited' from the trailblazers of Gospel Music Awards Ceremony this month and will not be honored alongside Marvin Sapp and others.  In my humble opinion as a real Christianany Gospel Artist/Preacher/Pastor/Teacher that participated in the BMI after this should be ashamed of themselves.
