Folks Are In Their Feelings About Michelle Obama Attending "BLACK GIRLS ROCK"!

Lord have mercy, we're damned if we do and damned if we don't. Why in the world should this be an issue? Young black women need inspiration just as much if not more. Geesh!

He Who Has Ears To Hear, Let Him Hear: Civil Rights Activist and Former SPLC President, Julian Bond Speaks!

Julian Bond experienced businesses refusing him service because of his race and now he associates the same kind of disturbance in the ‪religious freedom bill in Indiana and around the country. Mr. Bond was at the forefront of the civil rights battles of the mid-20th century. He says the 'religious discrimination' bills now cropping up all over the nation are a return to the institutional intolerance of those days.
"I have seen discrimination. I have stood inside businesses that would not serve me because of my race, and I have been told that the rights of those business owners were more important than mine. I countered that logic then, as I do now. We have no crisis of religious discrimination; we have a crisis of fear.  I stand against these bills and with those who are fighting to stop them. I refuse to allow discrimination to cloak itself in a shroud of faith. I refuse to give into fear."" Op-ed: 'Religious Discrimination' Laws Have Nothing to Do Wit…

Preachers Of Detroit Repackaging Faith!

Folks are highly upset with Pastor D Alexander Bullock. According to Facebook, this just posted on D Alexander Bullock timeline. What is this all about? Also according to the same source David Bullock is doing what the TV show executive tell him to do. The executives of the show made clear the preachers on the show, male and female are not to promote the church through scripture or bible readings. They signed an agreement stating as much.

Help: For Pastors/church elders and members (San Marcos.)

Lord have mercy, the above ad is a Craigslist ad. I'm thinking this guy whoever he is, is really confused about the working of the church.  I guess when you are out of options and faced with an emergency the church should be the place of hope.

Prophet 'Arrested Over Pregnant Wife's Death'!

A Ghanaian pastor, Prophet Eric Isaiah Adusah, domiciled in the United Kingdom (UK), has been arrested in connection with the death of his pregnant British wife, Charmaine Speirs, which occurred in Koforidua last week. The couple, who are pastors of Global Light Revival Ministries with branches in London, Manchester and Edinburg – all in the UK – had travelled to Ghana to attend a church programme organised by the House of Prayer Church International in Koforidua, the Eastern Regional capital.

Update: The case of a British woman allegedly murdered by her pastor husband in Ghana took an astonishing twist last week when a court was told that she died of a heroin overdose.

Stevie Wonder Stops By New Salem Baptist Church!

New Salem Baptist Church in north Minneapolis were surprised by  Stevie Wonder during Sunday's service.
“I just want to give all thanks to God for the opportunity to be here,” Wonder said to the congregation at New Salem Baptist Church.Stevie Wonder wows north Minneapolis church with a gospel tune.


Facebook: Looks like the biggest thing to happen at the 30th Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards was the reunion of Destiny's Child members Michelle Williams, Kelly Rowland and Beyonce Knowles-Carter. For years, we have preached a cheap gospel and peddled a soft Savior. We have taught salvation without self-denial and the crown without the cross. We have catered to the unsaved and compromised with the world. Now we are paying the price.”

Jesus Take The Wheel:Pastor Makes Alleged Death Threat from Pulpit!

Presiding Bishop Jeremiah Reed makes gruesome kill threats during a CATIF convention sermon on 3/20/2015. In the below clip, Presiding Bishop Jeremiah Reed, pastor of Christ Apostolic Temple of Des Moines and Leader of the Christ Apostolic Temple Fellowship, makes the following statements:
 "There is no one in the world that can't be hunted down".. followed by making the statement, " I got folk that will hunt you...put you in the corn field or drop you in the river and put a weight on you...or cut your tongue out and leave it on your chest, those are the kinds of connections that I have... I want them to know, Im not a playboy, if you push the wrong button jack..." Online rumor have it that the alleged threats were aimed at the pastor own grandson. 

Killing Jesus?

Listen up America, Jesus did not come into the world to "make people better."Jesus came into the world to proclaim the Kingdom of God and the need for salvation.  Please don't waste your time or money on this foolishness here. Check out this quote:
 "because the main teachings of Jesus were to teach men how you could become better."  Sorry, I won't be watching, Bill O'Reilly stated in an interview this week that Jesus died ONLY because of politics of those days and that Jesus was NEVER referred to as Christ until after HIS resurrection. Am I having a hard time believing that? YEP!

Jesus came into the world to live a sinless life and then be crucified and rise again. If you remove his miracles and his resurrection, and the entire story falls dead. Apart from his power and presence as the divine and eternal Son of God, there is no message.

Didn't Know The Church Of Today Held Mortgage Burning Services For It Members?

First time seeing this! When one makes the final payment on a   mortgage, it can be a joyous time for a family. Saying goodbye to mortgage debt calls for a celebration but I've never seen a church burn the mortgage note for its members. Have Yall?   Congratulations are in order for the Thompsons as they burned the mortgage 14 yrs early. 

Happy Palm Sunday:

Palm Sunday Is The Path To The Cross. Today official ends the "Lent" season and begins "Passion Week." Back in my old church we would celebrate Palm Sunday by laying palm leaves up and down each isle of the church in remembrance.   Palm Sunday celebrations are the Triumphal Entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem. It's the week before His death and resurrection, some churches call it Passion Sunday.

Passion Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week, which concludes on Easter Sunday. The Bible reveals that when Jesus entered Jerusalem the crowds greeted him with waving palm branches and by covering His Path with palm branches. Immediately following this great time of celebration in the ministry of Jesus He begins His journey to the Cross. Does your church celebrate Palm Sunday? Happy Palm Sunday!

Jesus Take The Wheel: The New “Radically Inclusive” Church Says Bring Your Own God?

Lord have mercy, Bishop Earl Paulk is rolling over in his grave at the latests antics of his son D.E.Paulk.  Bishop Earl Paulk son D.E. Paulk has gotten quite a bit of attention lately for leading worship at a church that recognizes “all gods and prophets, including Mohammed”.

Question For Today: Is Reality TV Making Church Celebrities Out Of Pastors?

Yesterday a much-heated debate took place on Facebook surrounding the shows Preachers of Detroit and Preachers of LA. The main argument was that these shows are all about branding the image of the preacher/pastor/teacher and the trafficking and selling of self.(Ezekiel 28:16-18) The end game is covetousness, selfish ambition, idolatry and the pride of life - All in the name of Jesus. These pastors are not representing God but instead they are representing themselves by producing CHURCH CELEBRITIES.

Why Can't Harlem's Only Black LGBT Church Find A Home?

Senior Pastor Vanessa Brown of Rivers of Living Water says they're having a hard time finding a space for church. Living Water has become a place of refuge for African-American LGBT Christians, but it's a church without a home. The Harlem church declares itself "radically inclusive and open and affirming" of the LGBT community, and the majority of its congregation, along with its entire ministry, is LGBT.  And unlike the few other Harlem churches that open their doors to gay members, Rivers of Living Water performs same-sex marriage ceremonies. But embracing the LGBT community has come with a cost: Rest Here!

So Kirk Franklin Is Now Questioning Someone's Character???

Critics are not yet done blasting Pastor Creflo Dollar’s controversial campaign to raise $65 million for a luxury private jet. This time around its gospel artist Kirk Franklin who is weighing in on the matter. Kirk Franklin recently penned an op-ed for, in which he's questioning Pastor Dollar’s character, as well as that of other leaders in the Christian community and society as a whole.
“When a pastor wants people to buy him a private plane while a missionary in Somalia bathes children with sores, that’s a shortage of character.”Facebook: I'm thinking Kirk Franklin was wrong here in attacking Pastor Creflo Dollars character. When personal, I find fault with and question a lot of things that I've seen Kirk do and say. For one, it's that pink lipstick he wore in the video smile.  Therefore, in my opinion, Kirk needs to go sit down somewhere cause anyone with a porn problem, can not talk about the character of others.  Do you agree?

God Instructs Dancehall Artist To Get Real Goat Horns Implanted Into His Head So He Could Stand Out And Be A Bigger Artist.

Okay folks, these are real horn implants inserted by a surgeon and attached to this Nigerian artist's skull. What I find interesting is the idea and claim that he didn't do this alone. He believes wholeheartedly that he got some form of prophetic instruction from God.


Lord he prayed for millions around the world. Now we ask you Lord to return the blessing of healing and divine health back into his body in Jesus name, amen!

Faith Broadcasting Network requests that all of its partners stand in agreement for the healing power of God to touch Pastor Benny Hinn as he lies in ICU after suffering a serious heart condition. Let's unite in Faith and believe for his healing.

Question: Does Today's Black Church Still Have A Role To Play In The Fight Against Social Injustice?

According to Dallas Texas Megachurch Pastor T.D.Jakes, they do. Whether it’s Mike Brown’s funeral or weighing in on Trayvon Martin, Bishop T.D. Jakes is ready to tackle the social justice battles being waged throughout the country. In Dallas, Bishop T.D. Jakes says he participates in a council of churches, comprised of black and white churches, that address social issues in the community.

The days of the black churches spearheading a movement the way the did during the Civil Rights Movement are gone, Jakes says, but black churches still have a role to play in the fight against social injustice.

Church Mess: Fighting Breaks Out At New Galilean Missionary Baptist Church After Pastor Ousted?

Lord have mercy, it was an ugly scene outside of a Jackson Mississippi church Sunday morning. According to reports and church members at New Galilean Missionary Baptist Church. Around 7 a.m. Sunday morning they voted out and asked their newly elected pastor Orlando D. Franklin and his board to leave the church premises.

It's a sad day when there is just as much hell being raised in God's house as it is in the world!!!

Church Announcement: The Preaching And Teaching Of Pastor Creflo Dollar Is Life Changing.

Does a God-directed life really make a difference? Is there anything more powerful than one own personal testimony?  I stumble upon this well-written blog post of a young lady who feels that her pastor and church family have come under unjust and unfair attacks from the media.
"I thank God for a ministry that serves around the world, a place that builds homes and feeds millions every year, a place that goes into the sex trade industry and saves souls, a place that is so big, but yet so small. A place where my pastor preaches every week in New York on Saturday, just to fly back in the middle of the night, to preach in Atlanta, Ga on Sunday. A place where we give toys and back to school items in the thousands every year, a place where people line up every year to get free turkeys and food for thanksgiving, a place where my pastor doesn't receive a salary, but still pays tithes off of his individual earnings, a place where every week they break down the budget, what was spent, …

Does Easter Sunday Morning Church Really Need Glitter To Shine? Isn't Christ Enough?

As a celebration of the resurrection of Christ from the dead, Easter Sunday is one of the most important days of the Christian life. This coming, Easter Sunday morning many megachurches will be doing it up in style, without any emphasis on Christ.  I just don't understand the concept of having high profile guests for Resurrection Sunday?

I often wonder why churches would have "Special Guest" for Easter Sunday? Statistics tell  us that most all churches have more guests sitting in their pews on Easter Sunday morning than any other Sunday of the year. So, why not have Christ as the main attraction?

An Open Letter to Franklin Graham And His Foolishness!

I was appalled by the foolishness last week of Franklin Graham's comment blaming police brutality on bad parenting and disobedience. According to Graham, the problem of violence at the hands of police is “simple.” It can be reduced to victims' lack of obedience and bad parenting. People of faith responded. I'm so impressed by this well-articulated response coming from members of the religious Community. Open letter to Franklin Graham. 

Hall Of Shame: Pastor Who Targets People Who Need Help!

Lord have mercy, another example of how some people are wounded by the church. This man was trusted by the most vulnerable people and he took great pleasure in taking advantage of a situation.

This low life of a pastor said he worked with THAW, the Detroit charity that helps thousands make it through the winter. According to reports that have been filed, the pastor said his church and THAW had a power program that would cost them a fraction of their current bill. They instead ended up with a shutoff notice.

Jesus Take The Wheel: "Allegation" Of Corruption In The Church Greater Grace Temple!

When a pastor or a church member hurt us, our very first action should be one of prayer. But, of course, that's not always the case. For some, it's to upload a video clip to social media. A lot of times, when we experience hurt in church folks L O V E  to tell us that we have no reason to feel bad and we just need to get over it. The hurt we feel is real and to pretend like you aren’t hurt isn’t going to bring healing.

This is an interesting account of a young woman who was in her words "black balled" from the Church. What are your thoughts? What could have led to this? Are there times when people need to be sat down in ministry? If so what is the proper way to do it? And what is a reasonable reason to tell someone their attendance at church is Not Required?

With an allegation of corruption being leveled against his church and congregation by a disgruntled "pew sitter". Preachers of Detriot Bishop Charles Ellis lll, has taken to his social media page to pe…

Franklin Graham Is Such A Hypocrite!

This privilege white man is such a hypocrite that it's not even funny. How about he has spent a great amount of his time and years disrespecting the highest authority in the land (President Obama) now all of a sudden he speaks of respect? Get out of here with that foolishness, talk about a lack of credibility. The would-be heir to Billy Graham’s white evangelical dynasty took to his Facebook page Thursday in an effort to call the president out after two police officers were shot in Ferguson riots this week. I agree 100% with the facebook comment below.

Facebook Comment:  It must be nice to be a mid-class white person and live in america especially to be a middle-class white male, the world looks so simple and easy but for the rest of us, there is another truth. The truth that it doesn't matter if you follow all the rules you still are a target just by being born with color in your skin or poor. Until we as a society are willing to do away with racism and classism we will conti…

Lord Have Mercy: Personal Grudges Causes Two Women Of The Cloth To Bump Heads!

Fix It Jesus: Because Of Social Media Backlash Pastor Creflo Dollar Force To Remove His Donations Page!

After a huge social media backlash, a web page from Pastor Creflo Dollar Ministries soliciting $65 million for a new Gulfstream G650 jet has apparently vanished. Despite the disappearance of the "Project G650" page from the Creflo Dollar Ministries page, supporters are still able to donate to the project via the ministry's donations page.

Jesus Take The Wheel: Preachers Of Detroit Pastor Bullock Passes Out Condoms in Church!

Lord have mercy these reality preachers are doing to much. This Friday (at 8pm E/P) on Oxygen’s “Preachers Of Detroit,” Pastor Tim Alden and Pastor David Bullock hosts a teen program focusing on the principles of abstinence and purity. But the room heats up when Pastor Bullock begins to distribute condoms as a “just-in-case” alternative if temptation arises. Source:

Or You In? Pastor Creflo Dollar Needs 200,000 People to Donate $300 Each So He Can Buy $65M Ministry Plane!

Update: Florida Church Loses Tax Exempt Status Over Raunchy Wet-n-wild Spring Break Twerking Parties!

I mention what this church was doing a couple of days ago. From the look of thing, they have lost their tax-exempt status.  A Florida church that hosted naked paint parties and slumber-party Sundays featuring the "sexiest ladies on the beach" has lost its tax-exempt status. The News Herald of Panama City reports The Life Center: A Spiritual Community has been operating a seven-day-a-week party called Amnesia: The Tabernacle since Feb. 28.

Get Out Of Here: Church By Day, NightClub By Night!

A youth ministry or a nightclub? It's what many Bay County residents are asking about what's now running nightly out of The Life Center church.  A sign and ATM popped up outside of The Life Center, A Spiritual Community in Panama City Beach. According to Bay Co. Sheriff Frank McKeithen, it's advertising a nightclub inside the church, Spring Break Amnesia: The Tabernacle. But Tabernacle's promoters are saying something different. They wouldn't speak on camera, but representatives told NewsChannel 7 the church by day is a youth ministry by night. But some people are not buying it.

FOX News Hires Alveda King, Who Is Anti-Abortion and Anti-Divorce Despite Having Obtained Several of Each Herself!

Lord have mercy talk about out of touch. Fox News has signed Alveda King, the niece of civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr., as a contributor, Fox president Roger Ailes announced [on Friday].

King will provide regular social and cultural commentary. I tell you what, this move so reminds me much of when Michael Steele was made chairman of the Republican National Committee. Symbolism is very important to those that attempt to deceive.
