What Does It Mean To Say That The Black Church Is Dead?
Posted by Ann Brock
Eddie Glaude’s recent “Huffington Post” piece that pronounced the death of the black church...The article have provoked a heated debated with plenty of comments...Through research I found out that Mr. Glaude was once part of the “State of the Black Union” featuring Tavis Smiley....And if not mistaken he was part of the panel that discuss the church on C-SPAN....I don't think he mention anything about the Black Church being dead....Personal I see this as nothing but fodder to be use against the black church and its people for their support of our president....This attack against the black church started with the nomination of the president and it has not let up....The Religion Dispatches has an update article with a response from Eddie Glaude...I am just wondering when will the Cathoic Church die?...Its funny how people want the church to do everything except for what it was founded and commissioned to do....A holy God sent His Son, Jesus Christ to die on a cross.... Jesus got up with all power and He's coming back again.... Above all, churches should be concerned about the eternal salvation of men....We're an ungraceful people who have turned from a HOLY GOD.... And have the nerve to call The Black Church dead....Why? because it refuses to embrace certain lifestyles?....I don't for one minute accept the black church as dead....Lacking power! maybe....I believed that's because of who we have allowed to lead it.... Its no longer lead by the Spirit of God, its lead by a materialistic culture with a PHD.
