Mali Music Signs With Akon!

There's noise in "The Christian Community" about Mali Music signing with Akon....In the video I have posted below is the manager of Mali Music Holly Carter.....Ms. Carter said she knew this conversation  was going to take place...So she's out front with her own message.

Sex Education Is Not The Problem, It's Lust!

As "Christian Parents" what do you think about the department of education in New York City recommending high schools and middle schools students be taught everything there is to know about sex?and in addition to teaching them about sex they won't to also teach how they can protect themselves from STDs and unwanted pregnancies. 


For me this is the most ridiculous mess I ever heard...."Have sex in a healthy way" just what does that mean? how can children have healthy sex? parents or guardians have the responsibility to teach their kids, not the schools.
so, my question is what do you do as a Christian Parent who have taught and is teaching  your child to flee lust just like Paul taught young Timothy?....but instead to pursue what's right in the eye sight of GOD... I’ve always realized that the ungodly have long held the monopoly on sex education, and that what they are indoctrinating us and our children with is terribly wrong.

Girl Scouts Allow 7-Year-Old Boy to Join Because He is ‘Living Life as a Girl’

Bobby Montoya 
What do you think about "The Girl Scouts of Colorado"allowing a 7-year-old boy to join a local troop because he is “living life as a girl?”


 “We make the distinction that if a child is living life as a girl and the family brings the child to us and says my daughter wants to be a Girl Scout, we welcome her,” Rachelle Trujillo, vice president of communications with Girl Scouts of Colorado told CNSNews.com.

I Disagree With Mr Osteen Mormons Are Not Christians.

This is a Quote from Joel Osteen in the Washington Times:
“I believe that [Mormons] are Christians,” Mr. Osteen said. “I don’t know if it’s the purest form of Christianity, like I grew up with. But you know what, I know Mormons. I hear Mitt Romney — and I’ve never met him — but I hear him say, ‘I believe Jesus is the son of God,’ ‘I believe he’s my savior,’ and that’s one of the core issues.“I’m sure there are other issues that we don’t agree on. But you know, I can say that the Baptists and the Methodists and the Catholics don’t all agree on everything. So that would be my take on it.”


C'mon Joel how can Mormons be Christians when they don't believe Jesus is God's Son?

 The thing that I find so fascinating is that this young man has mange to land a paying job and not just any job but a modeling job....just how crazy can things get in this world? Check out the clip below!

Why Is Tyler Perry Burning The Bridge That Bought Him Over?

 I'm a huge supporter of Tyler Perry.....I've seen every movie Tyler Perry ever made including his plays....back in the day when Tyler Perry was not a house hold name......me and my church sistas  would drive hundred of miles just to catch  one of his stage play.....I believe Tyler Perry decision to cast Kim Kardashian in his next movie "The Marriage Counselor" is one of the worst decision he has ever made......I would not pay one cent to see this overexpose person try-in act.... now I've defended Tyler Perry on my blog many times before....but his decision to cast Kim I can’t support…I am one of Tyler Perry many church fans who right now has one finger in the air saying excuse me, pardon me, forgive me,  but I am exiting Tyler Perry fan wagon.....my admiration for Tyler Perry has always been the fact that he stayed true to who he was and to the folks who showed up in support of his work......Tyler Perry have always had the support of the black church community so why in the world would he decided to burn the bridge that brought him over?...just like oil and water don't mix Kim Kardashian and Tyler Perry don't mix in my opinion.

There's Power In The Pulpit Of The Black Church!?!

The Grio ask a wonderful question: Did Eddie Long Lead  Parishioners In Ponzi Scheme? I don't know if he lead them or not but I do believe he's responsible,liable,and accountable for allowing it to take place.....and for that Eddie Long should be sued for his role in allowing the so call Ponzi Scheme to take place at his church.....I believe Eddie Long should be held responsible for his members losses out of his own pocket....he allow this alleged  marketing /business scheme to take place from his pulpit while   under his watch.....it's every bit Eddie fault and he's every bit responsible for any and all things that have happen  to members under his leadership....Eddie Long been part of the black church construct long enough to know and realize that there's "power" in the pulpit of the black church.......back in the day pastors would not allow just anybody to step foot in their pulpit....unless they had been personal vetted by the host pastor.... any pastor that will promote illegal gambling from with in the church house need to be made to pay for all damage that result from said activities.

The Christian God Don't Like Sin!?!

Actress Nia Long is on the cover of November's EBONY magazine pregnant and unmarried....and is causing a big stir among other Christians....in the magazine interview Ms. Long claim  she ask God to bless her with another child and He did:
"I honestly asked God for this.  I remember I was driving home from the doctor, and I called Ime, and I was like, ‘Babe, I’m really kind of sad right now … the doctor actually said if I wanted to have more children, it would be hard."
I’m probably going to get holler,scream, yell at, for saying this, but God does not bless sin…sex outside of the confines of marriage is sin....any one who think that the God of the Bible would bless sin is wrong....now Ms.Long is pregnant because she had unprotected  sex.....plain and simple. Yes, children are a blessing from God but we can’t “rearrange” the bible to suit our lifestyle....for example we can’t pray…Lord God I’m about to go hook up with my man to have sex please bless me and give me a baby cause I want one....the God of the Bible is not part of that foolishness....the God of the Bible will not operate outside of His Written Word....sex outside of marriage is a sin!

Let God Be Your Husband or Your Wife?

Christian actress Meagan Good, is speaking up and out  in the November issue of Sister 2 Sister magazine about being  Christian, celibate and looking for a Christian man to marry....Meagan says she has met someone special, but you know what? I'm so in love with God right now, I'm focused on being married to God....I'm celibate.....When I hear people make silly statements like that.....I just say to myself another Spiritually Unlearned Christian.

Let me say this about being married to God.....it's absurd, dumb,foolish, stupid and ridicules.....I have heard many single young Christians like Megan Good making that crazy statement...Meagan! you cannot be married to God .....I don't know where Christians get this crazy idea from but....one thing I can tell you  it did not come from the Written Word of God. Jesus said in John 4:24, "God is a spirit." God can no more be a husband or a wife, anymore than He can be your auto mechanic if your car break down or your hairstyles if you needed a new do.

Would You Support A Pastor Who Preached In High Heels!?!?


Well apparently high heels for men are becoming fashionable, so they say.....and according to the New York Times and blogs like "Men in Heels"......more than a few men are venturing into the land of high heels.  after doing a Google search of "Men in Heels" and reading some of the comments....I was totally surprise that so many folks were very accepting of the look of a man in heels.....so my question is what do you think about men wearing high heels? could or would you support a man of  the cloth who preached  in heels on a Sunday morning? could a "Man in a pair of Christian Louboutin's" one day become an acceptable sight  in our pulpit?  what if the men in your life, husband or son won't to wear heels would/could you support them?

Occupy The Church?!?

Candice Benbow is a young lady I follow on Twitter  who love all things Black Church....and one who is also highly critical of all things Black Church....Candice say  we the black church  can do better...because we have done better...we are doing better and we will continue to do better...Candice did a piece on her blog call "Occupy The Church" in which I personal finds very interesting.

"When was the last time we experienced a movement that held the Church accountable to its mission of outreach and social justice? With the rate of unemployment climbing and the problems associated with that unemployment continuing to plague minority communities, it is time to demand accountability from our religious institutions. The mission of and mandate on the Christian church is to be like Christ. Those who followed Jesus, and those who did not, never ceased in soliciting assistance from them. And he gave it. His church is to do the same."

Why Some People Are Healed And Others Are Not?

At least three people in London with HIV have died after they stopped taking life saving drugs on the advice of their Evangelical Christian pastors...the church the women attended encourage them to stop taking the antiretroviral drugs in the belief that God would heal them.In one example, the church’s website claims: 
“Mrs Badmus proudly displays her two different medical records confirming she is 100% free from HIV-Aids following the prayer of Pastor T B Joshua.”
“HIV-Aids healing” is listed on the church’s website among “miracles” it says it can perform.“Cancer healing” and “baby miracles” are also advertised.
The church’s UK website promotes a monthly “prayer line” for which it says: “If you are having a medical condition, it is important you bring a medical report for record and testimony purposes.”It has posted videos on the internet showing its services in south London, in which participants who claim to have arthritis, asthma and schizophrenia say they have been healed after being sprayed with “anointing water” provided by the church.

Why Is New Destiny Christian Center Allowing Paula White To Hang Around?

New Destiny Christian Center doesn't seems to have any idea or structure in place as to moving the church forward.....the fact that  the church board would even consider Paula White for any say or role in the church is a mystery to me....I know Paula White claim Tim's as her "spiritual son" but do that give her special privilege in how the church is to move forward? if so why?  you can tell by the action of New Destiny Christian Center they were unprepared for the shaking it receive a couple of months ago with the death of it senior pastor Zachery Tim's....what's going on right now with New Destiny Christian Center is a  prime example of what can happen to any church when a pastor suddenly dies and the spiritual mother takes over.

Can A 2 Year Old Understand The Work Of The Holy Spirit?!?

Can a 2 year old understand sin? can a 2 year old commit sin? can a 2 year old understand what it mean to be convicted of sin and repent of said sin? can a 2 year old receive the Holy Spirit?  after watching the video clip below of a 2 1/2 year old baby speaking gibberish in tongues.....I have to say shame on the folks who put her in front of a congregation and  to claim she's speaking in tongue.....this is mockery to the Holy Spirit....why are folks clapping and applauding this foolishness?......come on folks every spirit is not from GOD....we have to be careful with this kinda of foolishness.....the little girl in the clip is doing a wonderful  job of imitating someone....her mom or another adult preacher like maybe pastor Chris.

Should Weddings and Shower Invitations Be Sent Via Face Book?

Is it proper etiquette to send "ANY" invitation via face book or email?

Should Churches Be Paying To Add Women As Tokens To Pulpits?

What do you think about the idea of churches getting cash for bringing in women candidates for senior pastor? Well a group of Missouri churches who have cut ties with the Southern Baptist Convention have decided to do just that....offer cash to churches who interview women.....this wonderful idea by the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Missouri offers to pay costs for such things as travel and interviewing by a female candidate — even if they’re not really top candidates....the aim is to drum up interest in hiring women as pastors and to encourage search committees to include a woman candidate in the process....even if she not the top candidate....you know what the nerve to pay a search committees to consider women as top candidates....is bad enough but, paying them to treat a woman “as a top candidate even if she isn’t actually one of the top candidates is a slap in the face....someone seems absolutely desperate  to get a woman in the pulpit.....I wonder if women looking to be pastors  would even consider this foolishness?

Occupy Wall Street Until "HIS" Return!

I  agree with the Occupy Wall Street protesters and truly believe it will only get worse; wait until people really get hungry....I have watched with interest as the Occupy Wall Street movement is heading  into its fourth week....I sympathize with their frustrations and believe they certainly have a right to be piss....the American dream has become a nightmare for so many...especially for the younger generation....the banking system did received a lot of money from us taxpayers and now are unwilling to help those who are in need of help.

Did The New Yorker Disrespect Steve Jobs Religion?


 I believe the New Yorker cover is disrespectful to what Steve Jobs believe in as a Buddhist....I'm sure that they meant well.....The New Yorker has released its October 17 edition of its magazine in a tribute cover of Steve Jobs....in a blog post  The New Yorker shows that the cover will depict Steve Jobs standing at the pearly gates with Saint Peter using an iPad to see if he will be admitted to heaven or not....some Buddhist and Christians are offended by this....but this is the problem for me it's like saying every path leaves to heaven.....Steve was a practicing Buddhist who did not believe in the concept of heaven.....In Buddhism, there is no heaven, but a similar concept is that of Nirvana..... Buddhist religion believes that after   re-incarnations, a person's soul will ascend to a higher realm free of suffering. Question did The New Yorker disrespect Steve Jobs faith with the cover?

Should Voters Pick The President Like A Church Picks It Senior Pastor?

 I read the comment above on a message board and it got me to thinking.....would I myself being a christian vote for a (Mitt Romney) Mormon candidate for presidency?.....my answer is yes I believe I  would vote for a Mormon if that person was the best candidate for the job....the reality is that the office of the President is a political and governmental office, and it shouldn't have anything to do with one religion....it's not a good thing when a persons religion becomes the primary reason that a person votes for or doesn't vote for a candidate...a candidate political record and their platform should be the main deciding factors in whether to vote for them or not.

More Black Men Converting To Islam and It's The Christian Church Fault?!?

There's a new book out making a claim that I find very hard to believe.....grant it I have not read the book but the claim the book is  making is some what surprising to me....it claim the U.S.Church have failed African American men; causing them to convert to Islam....I don't understand how this problem could possible be the church fault...Am  I missing something here?

Can Halloween Be Shape Into A Christian Holiday?

For me on a personal level this is the worst idea that have ever been introduce by any Christian Organization....Jesus Ween (Oct 31st) is expected to become the most effective Christian outreach day ever and that's why they are calling  it "World Evangelism". What do you think about Halloween becoming a Christian holiday?

Would You Attend A Gay Wedding?

Joel Osteen did and interview the other night with Piers Morgan....in which Joel stated that he would attend a gay wedding if they were good friends of his....Joel said in the interview that if he respected a person, even though he doesn’t respect their homosexuality, which he believes to be sin, he’d go to their wedding.....if ask I probably would've  answer the question the same way Osteen did....especially if it were my son, daughter or a close friend who were gay and getting married...I believe the real question here isn’t about the morality of the gay couple...it's more about the condition of the heart of the attendee.  question would you attend a gay wedding?

Why Won't New Destiny Church Embrace Ms.Riva Tims Vision?


I notice on September 28  Reva Tims posted to her Face Book page....in respond to the many requests for her to lead New Destiny Church. 
"In response to so many of your inquiries..I have gotten an overwhelming response from my New Destiny Family to come home and/or at least minister to them.However, I have not been contacted by NDCC staff to return or to assist in the transition. I will continue to pray and cover NDCC, that the vision Zack and I birthed will continue! Thanks for all of your love and prayers.”
Let me say this and  I know some folks ain't going to like it but here goes....is it possible that that particular vision died with Zachery? we must be careful when it comes to following people visions and their interpretation of visions....in everything   we must keep in mind that the Bible is finished and it tells us everything we need to know....the truth of the matter is that if God gave a vision to Zack and Riva it going to agree completely with what He has already revealed in His Word.....no man\woman visions should be given equal or greater authority than the Word of God.....God’s Word is our ultimate authority when it comes to our Christian faith and practice....if you follow behind someone vision make sure it's in agreement with the Scripture...the members of New Destiny Church needs to be asking the why question: why and for what reason have Ms.Tims not been invited or contacted  to return as New Destiny Church leader? the way I see it if her vision is in line with Scripture....and the church embrace women  pastors....what's the problem?

Steve Jobs, 1955-2011!

It's sad to here that Steve Jobs, the CEO and founder of Apple, died today at the age of 56.....presumably from pancreatic cancer which he was diagnosed with in 2008.

The First Lady Conference!


 Now I don't like the idea of calling the pastor wife first lady....this idea has never went over well with me and it probable never will.....but in my opinion there's only one first lady in our country.....and right now that first lady happen to be Michelle Obama....this is my opinion and in no way  do I mean to be disrespectful  to Ms.Lois Evan or any other pastor wife who are recognize by that title....I have read Ms. Evans testimony of how the idea for this conference came about.....and I think it's good she's  able to encourage other wives with her conferences....it's the conference name that I don't care for...why not just say a conference for pastor wives?
My husband, Dr. Tony Evans, could go to conferences and network with other pastors, but there weren't any things like that for me. At first, I struggled to live up to an image of what a pastor's wife should be. But when Tony told me he just wanted me to be me, it represented a real turning point.My experience led me to create the First Lady Conference for senior pastors' wives, so these often overlooked women could be educated and encouraged.  
(p.s) Kirk Franklin with be tonight speaker....didn't know Kirk did speaking engagements!

How Can You Preach Against Something That You're A Part Of?

There's a new debate raging over at "Latter Days".  It look like Pastor G. Craig Lewis  is planning to tape a new session of the Truth Behind Hip Hop series at Crenshaw Christian Center this October. Yep! you read the statement correctly. Pastor G. Craig Lewis is going into Babylon the enemy camp to shoot his next DVD series.   Many in the Christian community know that Crenshaw Christian Center is now being run by Dr. Fred Price Sr.'s son Fred Price Jr.  Any one who have followed the work of Pastor Lewis no that Lewis have no love at all  for Hip Hop within the church. Therefore folks are questioning his motive behind such a move:  
Is Roman Catholicism a Babylonian deception masquerading as true Christianity?  Absolutely!  However, how is it possible to preach against Babylon, from Babylon, while in agreement with Babylon? While I have not followed Fred Price Jr.'s ministry, I am aware that it was passed to him from the mantle of his father, who is still listed as an "Apostle" over that church.  There has been no separation from the deceptive doctrines taught by his father, but rather, that legacy has been falsely promoted as a shining example of Christian service.  As Min. Lewis states, it is a satanic deception to lead people into following after Babylon under the guise of representing the real church.  Yet, that is just what Dr. Fred Price Sr. has done.

Would The Jewish Community Support A Politician Who Had a Swastika Sign On Their Property?

The answer most likely not.  So, why can't black folks speak up and address things they view offensive as other groups have done? As of today I am not a supporter of Cain but that don't mean I can't change my mind by 2012.    Any way I read a comment that was kinda of disturbing to me. The comment  was that Herman Cain might have killed his own campaign for speaking up and out about Gov. Rick Perry's  ranch. Now the comment below is one that I find very interesting and I found it  over at Booker Rising Which by the way is one of my favorites sites to read when it come to politics. 

Why Is The Doctrine of The Trinity So Hard To Explain?

Do you have a hard time explaining  the doctrine of the trinity to unbelievers? The doctrine of the trinity is one of the most  mind blowing teaching there is in the Christian church.  Any one who's a student of the Bible know the word "trinity" is not found in the Bible.  But this does not mean that the concept is not taught there. The words "omniscience," which means "all knowing," "omnipotence," which means "all powerful," and "omnipresence," which means "present everywhere," are not found in the Bible either.  But we use these words to describe the attributes of God.


Some of my peeps in the Christian Community are highly upset with James MacDonald and Mark Driscoll for inviting Bishop T.D.Jakes to one of their leadership forum in January. The controversy  is surrounding the doctrine of the Trinity.  A number of people who support the idea of the Elephant Room, could not support the invitation of Bishop TD Jakes to be part of the conversation. The primary reason for concern centers on whether or not TD Jakes actually believes in the historic doctrine of the Trinity.

Have Angela Simmons Embrace Eastern Philosophy Thinking?

After becoming a vegetarian last month Angela Simmons sign a pledge with  PETA that she would not eat meat.  Angela Simmons is the younger daughter of Rev. Run and is one of the Pastry shoes designers.   Young Angela decided to promote her vegetarian lifestyle with a strong message: “Eating Meat Is a Sin”. 


Let me say if you're young and you get a wild idea you would like to pose nude for the world to see.  At least do it in good taste like Angela did. The“Adam and Eve” inspired ad for PETA features Angela posing with a single vine down her body, holding an apple.  Personal I think the pictures for the ad are done in good and wonderful taste.


 Now lets talk about her idea that "Eating Meat Is a Sin." I really believe Angela has mixed up her Christian belief  with her Eastern thinking. The Bible never stated that eating meat is a sin.
"I really want people to know what happens to animals … Animals have feelings, and I think it's important we take action," Angela explains. Angela believes that God's creatures deserve love and compassion and wants to raise awareness about the billions of cows, pigs, chickens, and other animals suffering on factory farms.
