The Black Church has historically been a source of hope and strength for the African American community.

The Man Who Finds A Wife Finds A Treasure, And He Receives Favor From The LORD
I'm straight up old school and will never embrace the idea or believe in women taking on men roles and chasing after them.....the biblical definition of the roles of husband and wife has been rejected as outdated and old in today's liberated and enlightened society....I'm thinking part of the reason women struggle so hard today is because of their desire for headship...I know some don't like to here this but here goes: after the fall of Adam and Eve, God told Eve, "your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you" (Genesis 3:16b)....in other words God was saying, things will be different now, Eve....you are going to have a bend in your nature, as will Adam, that is a direct result of the curse of sin.....that bend in a word is selfishness.....the word for "desire" in the verse means "to compel, impel, urge, or seek control over....." God was telling Eve she would have a sinful and selfish desire to seek control over Adam, to usurp the place of man's headship.....when God told Eve that Adam would rule over her, He meant that man would seek to dominate and control the woman. (that control does not mean manipulate)
Now I caught the re-run of the reality show love and hip-hop last night.....and was take aback, floored shock, when this beautiful young woman ask her man to marry her.....come on present generation of young women.....were is your faith, worthy,esteem, respect dignity? I believe any woman that will ask a man to marry her is the same kinda woman that will sleep with a man on a first date......this is the same kinda women who will be complaining that her man never takes her out....she will be hollering he don't respect me, he don't show me love he don't treat me like a wife...that's because he didn't ask you to be his wife.
Y'all you never know when it'll be your last time. I've met this young man once, but I follow him on social media. He was an anointed preacher, pastor and singer who loved God and was committed to the kingdom. To hear of him passing last night while performing is a hard one. He was one of gospel music rising stars and a powerful preacher.
So how about that, Paula White's son says members are leaving their church because they disagree with his mother being a spiritual advisor to 45. It's being reported that they are losing hundreds of members and thousands of dollars in weekly donations from the predominantly black congregation at New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, Florida.
Reader so Pastor Ron Carpenter wife Hope Carpenter on Sunday had the nerve to put up a controversial post that she now has been force to take down.....but not before it was screen shot. The post is below and it sends a mix messages to a mix congregation. Mine you, Redemption Church is a multi-cultural church that some described as "65 percent black."
Reader for years I believe that Minister Farrakhan was a closet Christian. The Bible says that one day every tongue must confess that JESUS is Lord. Listen to Minister Louis Farrakhan say he knows his redeemer lives, and that Jesus, the one who conquered death for him. The minister comment has caused some confusing among his followers and has caused quite a stir on his Facebook page.
In my opinion, the minister knows his time is near and close he's setting the record straight. He's confessing with his mouth and believing in his heart that God has raised Jesus, the Christ, from the dead, Who redeemed us, thou shall be saved. He has received the gift of salvation. He will see Jesus. He is also repenting for his wrong teaching cause he knows he has to be held accountable, for we all will sit in the judgment seat of Christ. He said he will take a loss to win in the end. https://www.facebook.com/OfficialMinisterFarrakhan/videos/1419395434834391/
Reader tell me if you agree with the following statements:
"Want to know why so many people are confused about Christianity? Not because Snoop Dogg has a 'gospel album' coming out! Oh no..... It's because so many professing Christians are defending and co-signing it!" -Anthony Hall
To read these comments makes me so sad that people who claim to be "Christian" are standing and fighting for Snoop making a gospel album, is truly mind boggling.
Charles Humphrey: There is no doubt in my mind that the project will be a commercial success for a multitude of reasons including his talent, his team and his tenure in the rap industry. I am not hating on him putting out a gospel project and I hope God can use it to transform lives and not just have people "bumping to it". As believers we must rely on the transforming power of Gods Word and the power of the Holy Spirit to convict people of sin so there is true repentance. Those elements are central to the &q…
Reader my deepest condolences to Family and extended Family of Bishop Frank Summerfield. Bishop Frank Summerfield was the senior Pastor and founder of Word of God Fellowship Church in N.C. A powerhouse in the Lords Church one who will be greatly missed by many in the Christian community. You never know what tomorrow brings. Lets keep the family in our prayers. https://www.facebook.com/WOGFC/
Reader once upon a time "The Black Church" was the center of the Black community. There were a lot of tradition but there also were family and a sense of community. Both of my parents use to smile as they spoke of their childhoods and grandparents growing up during hard times. I cherish their stories.
Reader good Thursday morning to everyone I'm praying everyone reading this post have a wonderful day, in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I guess R. Kelly and Apostle Matthew Stevenson is the Facebook topic for the last couple of days because it's all up and down my timeline.
All I'm gonna say is that after watching all the different broadcasts and attacks against Apostle Matthew Stevenson the church needs to get it together. Everyone interprets the Scriptures differently, every pastors is not for everybody. In my opinion, the rebuttal last night by Prophet Carn, the yelling and name calling by Dr. Earl Carter and the personal attacks on the man and his ministry by Bishop Ronzel Pretlow was not necessary. I'm at lost with this whole Apostle Matthew Stevenson situation. The religious folk had reported Apostle Matthew Stevenson video so many times that Facebook took the video down.
Reader I saw a few posts about Pastor Steven Furtick leaving Elevation Church to sign a contract with Lakewood Church for millions of dollars. It's NOT TRUE, he said so himself.
A website that publishes works of Christian satire is behind false reports that Steven Furtick is leaving Elevation Church for a $110 million contract with Lakewood Church.
The article appeared at The Babylon Bee on July 28, 2017, under the headline, “Steven Furtick Signs 6-Year, $110 Million Contract With Lakewood Church.” In a “stunning” move for evangelicalism, the article reported, Steven Furtick would be preaching alongside Joel Osteen.
