Jesus Fix It: Bishop Oliver Clyde Allen III, Rides A Horse In The Sanctuary!

Lord have mercy, preachers PLEASE stop all these show antics and just fulfill the assignment of the Gospel. Anyway, during this past Sunday's service, Bishop Oliver Allen lll, decided to use a HORSE and its handler for the following sermon illustration:
 "Your vision should be like a wild horse that broke out of the gate! Don't waste time. Stop making excuses. Do something out of the box in 2015!" 

Update, Bishop Oliver has responded to the media hype:

 To all CREATIVE and INNOVATIVE leaders and people, communicate God's truth with passion, innovation and creativity! Every New Years Eve service, at the end of the sermon, I use an illustration to further communicate the the Gospel. 
The 2014 sermon was, "Break Out the Gate!" (John 8:36). 15 seconds of the sermon illustration has received great attention for which I am proud! However, the sermon points before the illustration are most important! Here they are: (1) in 2015, STOP WASTING TIME! (2) in 2015, NO MORE EXCUSES! (3) in 2015, LET YOUR VISION OUT OF THE GATE! 
At the end of the sermon I mounted a thoroughbred horse to illustrate "let your vision out of the gate!" It was effective and I am honored to have a congregation and leaders who fully embrace creative approaches to communicating The Gospel! I pray that you will do just what the sermon illustrated! 
Take the limits off in 2015! This is your season to let your vision, creativity, innovation, gifts and calling out of the gate! Create opportunities, create inspiration, create educational opportunities for our youth, create a space for health and wellness and create a better world around you! Remember, some people will not understand you, but God will send those who will invest in you! 
Your assignment is to follow God no matter what! So, break down every barrier that stands in the way of your CREATIVITY, GIFTS and INNOVATION. Master your focus not focus on your fears. Now break out of the gate! A creative communicator.
 Bishop OC Allen


  1. See this why I don't have a church home, they do it for the Vine a little to much for me. And I can't let nobody lead me to hell.

    1. My friend, i do encourage you to find a loving christian community of wonderful believers. This picture is discouraging but not the essence of all churches. Being a part of a local body is testament of sharing with other believers who have the same desires you have and that is to live a life pleasing to God and to lead our fellow man to Christ. Thanks for your transparency

  2. I found this to be a distraction from the message, unnecessary and very dangerous to the congregation if the horse would have gotten upset in that cramped/crammed space!

  3. This is not of GOD. Its plain ole TOM FOOLERY at its best!

    1. I agree look at all these people smiling in the background those yes sir yes sir flunkies this is not a house of God this is the house of man when they saw that fool come into the church on that horse they should have left this is crazy and they wonder why the people are leaving young and old people are waking up to the fact that the Word of God is not being taught its mans interpretation on how he wants you to live and how many people is he sleeping with that's not his wife how much is a congregation's ties offering going in his pocket who paid for the horse

  4. This was for Watch Night service, and you have to hear the message to understand the horse. Further more you have to know the pastor to know that he is not taking money from anyone to pay for a horse. And if youre ever in Atlanta. ..go visit for yourself and then judge. Ok...i digress.

    As pastors, we are to follow the example of Jesus. We are told to preach the gospel. Everything we do and preach should be done to glorify God and lift up the name of Jesus!! God's house is to be used to minister the gospel and to meet the spiritual needs of the people by preaching and teaching directly from the Word of God. Any pastor is to hear from God concerning what to preach from His Word. Jesus said in Mark 11:15-17 And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves; And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple. And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves. God's house is not to be made a mockery of. God is a Holy God and His House, the church, is to be treated as a place that represents His Holiness. Luke 4:18 Jesus said,
    The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. This should be happening in God's House. Jesus is the example we all are to follow!! Jesus said in John 8:31-32 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. The problem in most churches is they have gimmicks, activities, games, etc., and little or NO TRUTH. Preaching and teaching truth keeps the focus on where it needs to be; on Jesus and His Word!!! Faith in God's Word and the Knowledge of it; is what will set people free; not riding in church on a horse. I doubt very seriously if anyone was focused on Jesus! YOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH WILL MAKE YOU FREE!! Test and judge everything by the Word of God. God says to put NO FAITH IN MAN!! Trust God and live by HIS every Word!!!

  6. When "Leaders resort to "gimmicks" to draw people, they are not drawing them to the Lord Jesus Christ.
    1 Corinthians 2:2King James Version (KJV)

    2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. Jesus said in St. John 12:32King James Version (KJV)
    32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me " Gimmicks are employed by "Frauds" ! Many church going people are fascinated by this foolishness because we live in a "church culture " that wants to be and needs to be .....ENTERTAINED ! Entertainment is a viable option, when you have a so called " Leader " that does not, will not, refuses to....SEEK GOD! There is so much foolishness in the "Black Church" and " Church " in general, that we have Grieved God`s Holy Spirit.

  7. Lighten up people! Every church is different and this pastor's style of preaching may not be for you. If it's not then find a church who does things the way you'd feel most comfortable with. Some churches have very elaborate choreographed performances by the choir. Some churches do not have a choir at all. The congregation sings songs out of a hymn book. Both are presenting the same message and attempting to touch people's hearts and souls. They just have different ways of doing it. It doesn't mean one is right and one is wrong.

  8. Y'all talking about a message and a horse, I can't get past the fact that he living a homosexual lifestyle and preaching to people and leading people !!!! THIS WORLD IS DEFINITELY COMING TO A END!!!
