Why Are White Christians Upset With Hillsong NYC Pastor Carl Lentz For Supporting Black Lives Matter?

 Reader, we are waking up watching and taking notes. Why are white Christians so offended by The Black Lives Movement? Is it because they have never seen the mistreatment of a young black man a first hand?

Kudos and high five to Pastor Carl Lentz, love and respect what he had to say about Black Lives Matter.  In my opinion, if your church is in an urban community and you have anti-black  attitudes, then that attitude will be reflected in those people. I'm not anti-white and I love and respect all religions and ethnic backgrounds.

Right now we as a community of people are hurting and there are some very insensitive Christians who will never ever identify with that hurt because they have chosen not to.

 It is crazy people are upset with " black lives matter" it is not saying no other life matters.  I can never wrap my head around the so call Christian that can turn their noses up at those in poverty, in the ghetto, the Hood, in situations that seem hopeless.

Keeping A Legacy Alive: How Dr. Myles Munroe's Children Are Keeping His Legacy Alive!


Reader, does what we start in life die with us? Most pastors today believes the church is their family business and they expect their children to take over once they are no more. I'm seeing with my own eyes the way some pastors who are in the public eye raise their kids really do matter. I'm guessing also the key to a standup child is to let your child be instead of forcing them to be who they are not.

With the November 2014 news that Dr. Myles Munroe and his wife Ruth had died in a plane crashed shocked Christians around the world. In addition to devastating their children, it shook the congregation Dr. Munroe pastored in Nassau, Bahamas. Today the children and his church are growing with a new passion to keep Dr. Munroe's legacy alive.

Check out this great interview here:

So, They're Planning A Rally For Officer Shelby Who Murdered Terence Crutcher.


Reader talking about a kick in the face, this is like celebrating a public lynching. White folks in Tulsa have scheduled a rally to support Officer Betty Shelby who shot/killed unarmed TerenceCrutcher. This woman murdered a man in cold blood. Terence was unarmed and was surrounded by 4 police and a helicopter. This is terrible, the disrespect that's been directed at Mr. Crutcher's family.

Facebook: While I can agree that "Police Lives Matter Too", I wouldn't go about trying to make that message by supporting a murderous police officer. That's like saying Germans aren't bad people by trying to make Hitler look good.

 Doggone shame!

The T.D Jakes Show Tapes Episode On Charlotte Unrest!


Reader the protests and unrest in Charlotte have grabbed plenty of national attention as media from across the country have traveled here to cover what's been taking place. The T.D. Jakes Show, which airs on WCNC, was in Charlotte Monday as well, and NBC Charlotte's Dan Yesenosky traveled around the Queen City with their crew today as they taped an upcoming episode on what this community has been experiencing. Monday morning, Bishop Jakes spoke with Dr. Patrick Graham of the Urban League of Central Carolinas in uptown's Marshall Park. "Is the community satisfied with how the mayor has released information and does the responsibility rest at her doorstep or is it more a concern to the chief of police here?" Jakes asked.

Fix It Jesus: LGBT Community Claims First 'Transgender' Birth!


Reader the LGBT community is lauding what is being described in the media as the world's first "transgender" birth. An Ecuadorian transgender couple — comprised of a "husband," or a female pretending to be male, and a "wife," or a male pretending to be female — gave birth to a son in June in what is being touted as the world's first known transgender birth, despite neither of the two having undergone gender reassignment surgery and the child having been conceived naturally and carried to term by a biologically female individual.

Lord Have Mercy, Fantasia Issue A Statement Regarding Her 'All Lives Matter' Cancelled Concert in North Carolina!


Reader it's the concert that never happened over the weekend in North Carolina. And that probably has a lot to do with the name and promotional material for the show. Fantasia, Anthony Hamilton, John P. Kee and Dennis Reed had been slated to perform at an “All Lives Matter” concert Sunday, but the concert was postponed for whatever reason. 

Anyhow, I believe the majority of society keep speaking incorrectly about the BLM movement just to silence us. The phrase "All Lives Matter" is 100% inaccurate. The correct term is "All Lives SHOULD Matter" because until "Black Lives Matter", All Lives DO NOT Matter. Some people keep missing that point.

In Fantasia case I remember black lives mattering for her when they were her only fan base and core support when she admitted to her struggles with illiteracy. She obviously has a lot more learning to do. Look at this misguided and misinformed statement.
"I understand that our people are still in poverty and we’re not getting certain things that we deserve. I understand that, but the only way we’re going to get it is not through tearing up buildings," she said while sitting next to her husband, Kendall Taylor. "Two thousand years ago, Jesus ended the debate on which lives matter. He died for all us. All of us. Martin Luther King stood for love and unity for all people. United we stand, divided we fall. Let’s all stand together. So black lives matter, yes they do. All lives matter.”

Alfred Street Baptist Church Donates $1 million to African American Museum!


Reader, I wish that I were able to contribute to this wonderful cause.  Alfred Street Baptist Church (ASBC), one of the nation’s oldest historically African American churches located in Alexandria, Virginia is a founding donor for the Smithsonian's new National Museum of African American History and Culture, committing $1 million in donations to the museum. The senior pastor, Rev. Dr. Howard-John Wesley, tells CBS News about the church's donor base and why the members wanted to get involved in the historic project.  The $1 million donation to the museum is the largest from a faith-based organization to date, thus allowing the church to be designated as a founding donor of the museum.

As A Believer, Cookie Johnson Reveals Accepting Son EJ’s Sexuality ‘Was Very Hard’!

Reader while I can't imagine having trouble accepting my own child, especially if I was a woman who had accepted my husband contracting HIV by repeatedly cheating on me, it's wonderful to see a family be supportive of an individual who faces intersectional discrimination. While on the other hand, some believe that any parent who is experiencing this, it's like a death because the child you gave birth to, the dreams for that person, etc., no longer exist.

 Do you agree?

 In a new episode of 'Super Soul Sunday' Oprah Winfrey sat down with Cookie Johnson to discuss her feelings about her son EJ being gay. Johnson became emotional as she revealed to Oprah how she learned to accept it ——> cookie johnson reveals accepting son EJ's sexuality “was very hard

Boycotting All Churches In Detroit, Starting First With Solomon Kinloch Jr,

Reader, what do yall think about the following statement?

For the month of October, I'm calling for a #BOYCOTT of all churches in Detroit. If you decide to go to church for praise and worship DO NOT TITHE. In October we are scheduling a meeting with every major Pastor in Detroit starting with Solomon Kinloch Jr. The church is not what it was in the 60s. Under the 501c3 the church has become a joke, a sex meeting place and pastors been pimping the people. Get out of your brainwashing this has nothing to do with God, church is a business and we going to make this business work for the people. — with Bk K Waters.


Tulsa Oklahoma, The Supposed Buckle Of The Bible Belt, Is The Home Of The Worst Race Riot In American History!

Reader Bishop Carlton D Pearson has taken to social media with a powerful commentary surrounding the Tulsa Oklahoma police killing. According to Bishop Pearson Tulsa Oklahoma, the supposed buckle of the Bible Belt, is the home of the worst race riot in American history.  In a 60 Minutes Interview in 1966, Dr Martin Luther King Jr said: “I contend that the cry of "Black Power" is, at bottom, a reaction to the reluctance of white power to make the kind of changes necessary to make justice a reality for the Negro. I think that we've got to see that a riot is the language of the unheard. And, what is it that America has failed to hear?

Racist Donald Trump And Sean Hannity To Hold Town Hall Today On Black Issues!

Haha Reader this is too darn funny. Trump & Hannity. Can't wait to see how the community reacts to these two right wing racists. According to Faux News tonight bigot, Donald Trump will hold a Sean Hannity–hosted (yes you read that right) town hall at a black church in Ohio to “discuss the core issues and concerns surrounding African-Americans this 2016 election cycle.” In my opinion, for that to work, Trump will have to hope they’re willing to ignore his well-documented history of doing and saying racist things.

How Prophetess Christina Glenn Weeks Built A Thriving Online Ministry!

Reader, the world we live in today is undergoing a big shift. Just as early Christians availed themselves on Roman roads to spread their message far and wide, today’s churches and ministries are now using the Internet to communicate their message.

 Once upon a time people lived their lives immersed in their local communities, but now people exist as individuals networked into far-flung and loosely connected groups of people. The Internet, wireless communication, and social media have made this shift possible. This shift fundamentally changes the way that churches and ministries relate to the people they serve.

In my humble opinion, Prophetess Christina Glenn Weeks is a prime example of that shift that's taking place in the world today with her forthcoming voice in the kingdom of God. It is evident that God is using her to build His Kingdom in this cyber and millennium age.  Lives are being empowered by the cutting edge approach to the Word of God she presents to the believers. Prophetess Christina Glenn Weeks has virtually built her brand and following online. 

Chaos Erupts In Detroit Church After Protest During Service!


Reader New Era Detroit holds this church accountable for not giving back to the community. On Sunday  New Era Detroit staged a protest that turned into a brawl, caught on camera. Mind you, this is the same church that recently hosted bigot republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.


 But this protest is about more than politics. New Era Detroit is calling it church accountability - taking congregations to task for not serving the community as churches should. They say something doesn't add up when a pastor makes a lot of money, drives a luxury car and the people who live near the church are in poverty.

 

US Pastor Steven Anderson Kicked Out Of Botswana!

Reader the internet is claiming this morning that Botswana government has taken a good stand against the wave of religious extremism that threatens peace and stability in Africa. This "new" wave of missionaries from the US who peddle extremist views about homosexuality is worth talking about.

The Facebook page for the Botswana government posted on Tuesday that is set to deport US pastor Steven Anderson for his remarks on a local radio station that homosexuals should be "stoned to death.” Anderson is a preacher from the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Phoenix, Arizona. The Botswana government declared him “a prohibited immigrant” and wrote of its plans to deport him from the country.

Why Are White Evangelical Christians Silent About Police Violence???


Reader Terence Crutcher was a 40-year-old pastor shot and killed by Tulsa officer Betty Shelby. I don’t even have words… On this past Friday night, Terence Crutcher died at a hospital after being shot by the police. He was unarmed and had his hands up. The police murdered him in cold blood.

I heard a white preacher preach recently, that he recounted having been stopped by the police with a weapon in his glove compartment. He talked about how jovial the officer was, how they laughed together, how he even wanted to invite the officer to dinner. He said something to the effect of these young men need to comply with the police in order to save their own lives.


This INNOCENT pastor and father of four children whose vehicle broke down in the middle of the streets, honestly thought he could seek help from police officers.... that maybe the police would park behind his vehicle with their lights flashing to avoid any accident.... BUT the pastor would never imagined that the police officers would be his executioners... instead of #SERVE and #PROTECT him, they mercilessly gunned him down and murdered him in the middle of the street.

Lord Have Mercy:Televangelist Benny Hinn Claims True Revival Is Coming To The World When False Teacher Billy Graham Dies???


Reader white evangelicals are somewhat upset with TV Personality Benny Hinn and are calling him a false minister and faith healer.  Benny Hinn, is one of today's best-known televangelists. His theology is based largely on that of the Word-Faith movement, with a heavy emphasis on the so-called "Prosperity Gospel." His teachings, behavior and practices have made him controversial among Christians and non-Christians alike.  With that being said, I'm not saying what is being reported by  Benny Hinn is right  are wrong,  but what I will say is that Billy Graham is in fact, a part of the 33-degree freemason in which he has fooled a whole lot of folks including me is noteworthy.

According to Benny Hinn,  the church is hiding away like Elijah in the caves, a group of prophets but not for much longer. “We are coming into perhaps the most significant day in church history,” according to a statement made by Mark Chirona who tells Benny Hinn. goes on to say “That’s the day when the church breaks away from her hiding place and explodes around the world.” According to Benny Hinn, the thing that will provoke the Church to come out of hiding will not be persecution but the “Death of Billy Graham.” He says “This will be the sign.”

Is The People Bishop T.D. Jakes Leaving His Dallas Church For Hollywood?


Reader Bishop T.D. Jakes responds to the question of whether he's leaving his Dallas Church for Hollywood. He tells ROLLINGOUT.COM, when asked if he’s working on his replacement at his church, The Potters House in Dallas, he says, “No, no, not right now. This is not an either-or. I am basically planning on pastoring my church and doing this show. If the show continues to be relevant, I want to continue to do it and I want to continue to pastor my church. My children are all grown. We are empty nesters. We can pack a bag and run out the door without any apprehension or anxiety. It’s the season in our lives where we can travel again. I love what I am doing.”
