Fix It Jesus: When In The World Did James David Manning Became A Prominent Pastor?


In my opinion, these low ranking Negros pictures above are bought and paid for uncle toms. Nobody knows who they are nor what black community they represent. Also in my opinion, any time one can find David Manning among a group of supposedly prominent folks, you know ain't sh*t to that group.


I applaud the CBC for their stand and also think they are 100% correct for boycotting Netanyahu's right-wing speech.  Which has nothing to do with religion, I  might add. Are these same Negros preachers going to "school" the two Jewish congressmen who plan to boycott all so? I'll wait to see that! Source Here!

RIP Def Jams’ Pastor JE Jones!


A major record executive with Def Jams and Uptown Records, Pastor James E. Jones A.K.A. PJ, died on Sunday, February 22, near Atlanta, Georgia.  Pastor J.E. Jones’ death and funeral were announced on Twitter and Facebook by his widow and co-pastor of his church, Caron Jones.  Pastor Jones made a name for himself in the `90s working with acts ranging from Mary J. Blige and Heavy D to serving as A&R chief for “The Nutty Professor” and “Rush Hour” motion picture soundtracks.


Over the last few years, he’s served as an Atlanta area pastor while also producing top tier gospel acts such as Mary Mary and Tye Tribbett. When Pastor J.E. Jones was a part of Def Jams Records, it was headed by co-founders Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons — but there is no online evidence of formal condolences from his former bosses. Regardless, this does not mean that the music industry forgot about Pastor J.E. Jones after he retired from Rap and R&B to focus on Gospel music. Source:Inquisitr.com

Jesus Take The Wheel: Pastor Yvonne Capeheart Says She Was Called To The Show SexBox By God!


How wicked! The racy new show called "Sex Box" is where a mix of gay, straight, married, and unwed couples enter a sound proof box on a set in front of a panel of judges and a live audience, then they give details to three "sexperts.   I'm really disappointed to see Dr Yvonne Capeheart participating in this talk show. The marketing enlists several types of sexual relationships that are not of Christian foundational instruction.

Facebook:

One of the "S E X P E R T S" Pastor Yvonne Capeheart told CBN News she was called to the show by God. The God of the Bible did not call this sister to watch people have sex and then comment on it or "counsel" them afterward.  I  Wonder how much money it took to change her mind?

Death of a False Prophet, John Paul Jackson!


Lord, have mercy someone has written a blog entry calling the man who once had the gift of interpreting dreams a fake and false prophet. On Wednesday, February 18, 2015, international speaker, author and founder of Streams Ministries International in Flower Mound, Texas, John Paul Jackson, passed away due to medical complications.
"The man, John Paul Jackson, who I once took my dream interpretation training from has passed away. The man was a proven false teacher and false prophet, and I am floored and grieved at this news. And unless he repented and found the truth, he stood before God in judgement, without Christ. Unfortunately, his work in deceiving masses will continue. Please be aware of who you follow and test everything through the perfect teaching of the bible, which will never fail us."

Does Branding, Marketing And The Church Belongs Together?


So, am I the only one to think that the church shouldn’t market itself? Meaning the church shouldn’t use deceptive tactics or dishonest methods and shouldn’t misrepresent itself to get people in the door. According to the internet, the Christian Embassy Worship Center is the place to be for the 2015 STELLAR AWARD WEEKEND.  Veteran industry executive Greg “Uncle G” Lyons along with the Mary's sister Goo Goo Atkins will "showcase" the latest gospel music talent.

Pastor Allegedly Assaulted Grieving Woman!


A pastor sexually battered a woman in his home while counseling her after the death of her father, the alleged victim claims in court. Kadijah Davis sued Nathaniel Small, Jr., Barbara Small, and Greater Friendship Baptist Church, in Chatham County State Court.

After Small conducted the funeral service for plaintiff's father in January 2013, he offered to provide "bereavement or grief counseling" to plaintiff, who was not a member of his church, she claims in the lawsuit. The counseling sessions took place in Small's home, at his wife's request, Davis says. Source: Courthouse News

Has The Black “Gospel” Music Industry Flatlined?


Well written article we have over here. I feel the exact same way as the writer of this article. My list of Gospel artists has dwindled down to a small remnant. It's a shame how so much is tainted and not of God but yet presented as if it is from God. Great read!

Christian Publisher Cancels Author’s Book Deal After He Comes Out Queer!


Fix it Jesus, A Christian book publisher has scrapped an author’s book deal – after he came out as queer. Evangelical writer Brandan Robertson had signed a deal last year for Destiny Image to publish his book, ‘Nomad: Not-So-Religious Thoughts On Faith, Doubt, and the Journey In Between’. However, after Mr Robertson appeared in a TIME article last month in which he identified himself as queer, the publisher approached him with “concerns” about his “media attention”.

Should Women Be Featured Speakers At Men Conferences??


Lord have mercy the debates among some Christians about women’s roles in the church and home still rages on. This past Friday through Sunday, a Men's Weekend "Under Construction" conference was held at Reid Temple AME Church.  And Pastor Riva Tims had the honor of being one of the one's ministering to the MEN of Reid Temple. And of course everyone not on the same page when it come to women speaking to men in a church setting.  What do you think should more women be featured speakers at all men conferences?


Also, the other featured speakers were, Bishop Rudolph McKissick, Jr., Bishop David G. Evans, Rev. Bill Lee, Bishop Eric Freeman, Rev. Dr. Walter Malone, Rev. Tony Boone and Rev. Tony Lee.

Alabama Governor Robert Bentley Agrees To Follow The Law Of The Land!


Lord have mercy, the governor of Alabama, has come under fire for his stance. The governor who also serves as a deacon and Sunday school teacher at First Baptist Church Tuscaloosa, says that he will obey the recent federal court ruling striking down the state’s Sanctity of Marriage Act as being unconstitutional.

Gov. Robert Bentley told Politico on Friday while attending a meeting of the National Governor’s Association in Washington, D.C. that he believes he must obey the courts even if he disagrees with them personally.

Church Announcement: Preachers Of Detroit Main Purpose Is The Unchurched Audience Not The Church!


Apostle Stacey Woods, ask the following question via her Facebook page yesterday:
 Another question if you please, why would preachers want to showcase their shortcomings on national T.V.? I really don't get these reality shows that make all preachers look like hypocrites. It's embarrassing and it actually angers me. I won't be watching.
Bishop Corletta J. Vaughn answered with the following comment:
A soft answer turns away wrath.. so here's why I am on the show.. my story, my life includes my struggles.. in the context of Preachers of Detroit, the unchurched is our audience not the church... my story will help, heal, and my struggles will show how My Faith sustains through it all. Now, because the bible we both love is filled with human struggles, sin, mistakes, and we openly preach it all.. now the medium is television.. I don't understand why we shouldn't be as transparent as our biblical heroes. Open conversation...
I guess that makes sense!

Bishop E.W. Jackson Want The Negro To Forget About The Past!


According to the Christian News Wire, Wednesday, February 25th at 7 PM in the Congressional Auditorium of the Capitol Visitors Center, Bishop E.W. Jackson will host a National Reconciliation Service entitled REKINDLE THE DREAM.
"We cannot allow the future of our country to be mired in the politics of racial division," says the Bishop. "We need a new generation of spiritual and legislative leaders who will bring us together."
In my opinion, this man is a con artist, that's profiting off of right wing hysteria. By no means would I support this foolishness. He isn't a threat to progress or justice. He's just an embarrassment to the church.

How Can Anyone Take Franklin Graham Seriously As A Minister?


Lord have mercy, in my opinion, Franklin Graham is one of the most harmful, damaging, destructive, pernicious faux Christian Dominionists in the nation, who isn’t yet done destroying his father’s legacy.  For him, being Christian is all about business and prestige and not about Jesus Christ. Graham, who is one of the self-appointed spokespeople for the right wing of the Republican party sure have been busy (google him) lately.

In my opinion, his mission is to spread hate and division between faiths, period so that his brand of Christianity will triumph in Dominion over all the world. If the president helps protect Muslims, then he must be denounced because it interferes with Franklin's power march.  Bigotry is terrible, whether religious or racial. The would-be heir to Billy Graham’s white evangelical dynasty keeps marching on.

2015 Top 150 Influential Women Of Church Of God In Christ!


Do you know a woman of God that inspires, encourages, is an example to those around her and uses her influence for good? If so, nominate her for COGIC'S 150 Influential Women.
ELIGIBILITY: 
The nominated woman must be a current member of The Church Of God In Christ, in good standing with her pastor, and active in one or all of the following areas: local church, district, jurisdiction or national church.   

Question: "Is there a difference in the function between a ‘minister’, a ‘preacher’ and a ‘pastor’?”


The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan answers the above question on his Facebook page:

 "Well, some preachers are more evangelical than pastoral. An evangelist is one who preaches The Gospel with the spirit and fire of The Gospel, spreading The Gospel; and you will see thousands coming to these great evangelical preachers. But after one has accepted Christ, then the next thing is to nurture them into Christ Consciousness and Christian Living. So the pastoral side of it is the more difficult side, because now you’re dealing with the weaknesses and strengths of the person who wants to be a good Christian."

 Good food for thought!!

Megachurch Pastor's Defamation Suit Against Son Advances!


According to Courthouse News Service, Fathers don't sue their stepsons for defamation every day. Even less often do pastors of large churches in California's Central Valley sue their stepsons for what they term a "cyber-bully hate campaign." But Bob Grenier, the senior pastor at Calvary Chapel in Visalia, Calif. - and an author and Christian radio host - did exactly that.

Courthouse News Services

Grenier and his wife Gayle sued Alex Grenier, Gayle's son from a previous relationship and whom Grenier raised from the age of three, for defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress after Alex created a website detailing his life with Pastor Bob.

Church Announcement: God Still Hate These Seven Things!


LYING WITNESS WHO GIVES FALSE TESTIMONY - 6th of(Seven Things GOD Hates) Bearing "false witness" means telling lies about an innocent party. You don’t know or understand the truths of God, but are spreading around untruths to others and not allowing them the right to grow.

I came across some disturbing stuff on social media earlier today.  One thing I have learned in this thing call life.... When folks show you that they are "morally corrupt" you best believe them.  The seven most hated things by God are the sins that deal with the deep heart motives of the individual. The writer of Proverbs points the finger straight at our hearts and our sinful thought processes. Some folks are just nasty!

Lawd Have Mercy Is There An Agenda Under Foot To Weaken The Blackman?


Do you believe there’s an agenda to make black men effeminate? Is the government and other people working to destroy the black man image in America? Black men in drag, dressed as women is nothing new, but to see black men strutting down a fashion runway dress as women's, is a sight to see. Is this a new tool?

Get Out Of Here: Rob Bell Says Churches Are Seconds Away From Embracing Homosexuality!


Rob Bell and his wife, Kristen, talked about marriage during a Valentine's weekend episode of Oprah Winfrey's "Super Soul Sunday" television show. The former Mars Hill Bible Church pastor made it clear that his advice applies also to gay marriage. Here's an excerpt from the show that aired Sunday, Feb. 15.


 "One of the oldest aches in the bones of humanity is loneliness," Rob Bell said. "Loneliness is not good for the world. Whoever you are, gay or straight, it is totally normal, natural and healthy to want someone to go through life with. It's central to our humanity. We want someone to go on the journey with."

 Rob Bell on gay marriage: 'We're moments away' from church embracing it.

Fix It Jesus Ash Wednesday For The Sinners!


Where are the Christians? Today is AshWednesday‬, which mean 40 days of ‎Lent‬ sacrifices begin today. Are you giving up anything? If so, W H A T? Does this day ring a bell in your spiritual life? If so, W H Y?


Facebook: 
According to tradition, now that the parties, the gluttony, and the drunken chaos that was yesterday is over, people are suppose to somehow stumble their way into a church, get ashes smeared on their foreheads, and all that was done is supposed to be forgiven? Does some one want to explain to me what I'm missing? No, I sincerely want to know why we preserve traditions that seem to separate us from and contradict the word of God. I promise...I really want to know.

Jesus Take The Wheel: The Death List For 2015!!


Lawd have mercy the devil is a liar. There's a site that predicts the death of people they feel will die in 2015. The death list site contains 50 celebrities that it considers most likely to die this year. The list for this year includes Billy Graham, George Bush SR, Chuck Berry, etc... How in the world can people go round listing people on a list, then crossing them off as if they are simply tallying up a score? Death and life are in the power of the tongue.  What do y'all think about a site like this crazy or not?

Mardi Gras 2015: Should Christians Celebrate?


To all of my Mardi Gras celebrating Christian readers... Can you tell me in the comment section below, W H Y  you celebrate this holiday? Mardi Gras (also called “Carnival” in many countries) is a time of unrestrained merrymaking, in which participants passionately indulge every fleshly desire.


Celebrated predominantly in Roman Catholic communities in Europe and Latin America, pre-Lenten carnivals are spreading in the U.S. Some of the most famous celebrations occur in New Orleans, Louisiana; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago; Nice, France; and Cologne, Germany.


 I'm not here trying to judge nor criticize or condemn  anyone, but I was taught in the old school long ago that this holiday is something that Christians should have no part in.  I just want to know, W H Y do Christians celebrate Mardi Gras?

Fix It Jesus: "Married Christian Couples Who Don't Practice 'missionary' Sex Will End Up In Hell"


Lawd have mercy, A Nigerian pastor based in the United Kingdom, Olugbenga Oladejo has said married Christian couples who engage in different sex positions practiced today will go to hell. Oladejo who pastors Complete In Christ Church (CICC), in the United Kingdom claims he was shown a vision by Jesus Christ of what will happen to Christian couples who end up in hell.
