If You Were The Pastor Wife What Would You Have Done? Wife of pastor charged in child sex case arrested!

Image
Reader what would you have done if you were in her shoes and had gotten word that the FBI was about to come for your spouse?  I hope this young lady does not have to do time. It's unfortunate that she responded in the way that she did, I always say you never know under pressure what you will do until you stand in those shoes. She was charged with obstructing because she called her husband and told him what was just told to her on the phone by the child's foster parent about the text messages between the two of them. She was not accused of sexually assaulting the young lady along with her husband.

Are Black Men The Least Churched Demographic In America?

Reader interesting, this up and coming church won’t take money from its members and the church will also forfeit tax-exempt status so its leaders can speak on political issues.

Image
Reader shaking my head, I saw this on my twitter feed, I really don't know what to think when I see big churches do things like this. Bishop T.D. Jakes and the Potters House Church family are selling chicken and waffles after Watch night services, Dec 31, 2017.

Another General In The Faith Has Fallen Robert Charles "R.C." Sproul!

Image
Reader my deepest condolences to the family and extended family of Robert Charles "R.C." Sproul, the Reformed theologian, pastor, teacher, and lecturer who founded and chaired Ligonier Ministries and authored close to 100 books, including "The Holiness of God," he met Christ face-to-face Thursday (Dec. 14). Mr. Sproul was 78.

R.C. Sproul was known for delivering uncompromising messages on the holiness and sovereignty of God in his writing, video teaching series, and as a regular speaker at Ligonier's national conferences in Orlando, Fla. Ligonier's mission is "helping Christians know what they believe, why they believe it, how to live it and how to share it," he once said.

Fix It Jesus: " Love After Lockup".

Image
Reader I swear you can't make this stuff up. So WETV has a new show advertised "Love After Lockup" which apparently follows six couples who have to transition from love behind bars (supervised visits) to the altar after the offender's release. I know as a mother, nothing would make me happier as to know my daughter got to marry the felon of her dreams. SIGH! Lord have mercy, it's shows like this that have totally eroded our national common sense.

How Roy Moore Tested White Evangelical Allegiance To The Republican Party!

Image
Reader if there was any doubt left, it's gone now, white evangelicals have proven that they're the WORST people in America (again). These are the same type of Christians who would have been standing in the door of the school shouting segregation now, segregation forever.

The major difference in my home state Tuesday election is that black people voted against him. Not that white people didn't vote or voted against him. People who don't normally vote -- did. Whites -- as usual -- voted party and ignored a complete lack of morals and character. For a group of people who claim moral high ground all the time -- they certainly don't consider that when voting for ANYONE with a R beside their name. Shameful.

Interesting read:
Roy Moore’s failed run for Alabama’s Senate seat tested white evangelicals’ allegiance to the Republican Party. Would they vote for a candidate who shares their conservative views on social issues even though he was accused of sexual misconduct by…

Omarosa Manigault speaks out about White House exit: 'I have seen things that have made me uncomfortable'!

Image
Reader, I wanna know what's this "community" she speaks of? I'm kind of glad she's doing this we need to see the other side of the coin. 

 Former reality-TV star turned White House staffer Omarosa Manigault today on "Good Morning America "tried to set the record straight on her reportedly dramatic exit from the White House Tuesday and alluded to situations in the White House "that have made me uncomfortable.”

Shout Out To Black Women In Alabama!!

Image
Reader remember those three things we're supposed to beware of as Christians? The World, the Flesh and the Devil? Politics is corrupted by all three. It doesn't mean some Christians aren't called to be active politically, but it does mean that worldly power and political influence should never be sought for their own sake. Anyhow, I want to shout out the "REAL MVPS OF ALABAMA" is all the black women and folks of color who made up for the 65% of white women and majority of white men who wanted to go with the alleged pedophile for Senate.

Atlanta's Megachurch Pastor Names His Successor.

Image
Reader prominent Atlanta Pastor Charles F. Stanley on Sunday recommended a pastoral succession plan to the congregation of First Baptist Church Atlanta. The plan, which was approved by the congregation, was unveiled at both morning services.  It officially provides for the orderly transition of the title, duties, and responsibilities of the role of senior pastor of the church from  Stanley to Senior Associate Pastor Anthony George at “such time in the future, known only to God, that Dr. Stanley ceases to be the senior pastor of the church,” according to a post on the church’s 
Facebook page.

Even if I didn't like his treatment of President Obama, I have always liked his teaching style: Very direct, clear and effective; no hoopla, rhetoric, or fanfare. He merely preaches and teaches the Gospel, with no inhibitions, or reservations.

Thank You Apostle Brian Keith Williams: Can A Prophet Of God Say Any and Everything????

Image
Reader have y'all ever in your life heard a “prophet” speak with such vulgar language when teaching the word?? I use to follow this young man and his wife on Periscope about a year ago. But I stop because he kicked his pregnant wife out on the street. He left her with no food, no money, and nowhere to go. In my humble opinion, he's not a man of God. Stuff like this is an embarrassment to the Kingdom of God.

Charlamange The God And The Handling of Scripture.

Image
Reader Ernest Cleo Grant II a contributing writer for "The Witness," a Black Christian Collective wrote an interesting article on Lenard McKelvey, or Charlamange the God misrepresentation of the Scripture. This is a well written article.  The fact that Charlamange is inaccurate most of the time when he handle Scriptures, what I love is this- he is a person of influence, largely to an audience that will never step inside of a church. 
he's obviously searching for Truth and answers surrounding Christianity and culture, so he doesn't shy away from talking about spiritual things- I think he is very much conflicted within himself about what to really believe.

Good read. Charlamange and the Handling of Scripture

Do Children Belong In The Main Sanctuary??

Image
Reader there is a movement in many churches today to always have children separated from adults. Although children should have a children’s church where they can learn and worship God, they also need to regularly be in the main service with the rest of the church body.

Do you agree??

Why did someone who got caught on tape brutally knocking his then-fiancée unconscious give a talk at a Christian University?

Image
Reader what does a former abuser talk about at a Christian college? Repentance. Former NFL star Ray Rice spoke to Liberty University students last week about domestic violence, addressing the 2014 video of him beating and dragging his then-fiancée out of an elevator. On February 3, 2013, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was riding high. That was the day he helped his team win the Super Bowl in a historic game against the San Francisco 49ers. But just one year later, Rice hit rock bottom after being caught on camera brutally knocking his then-fiancée unconscious in the elevator of an Atlantic City casino.
