Why Didn't Tasha Cobbs Show Up For The Woman of Gospel Event In Toronto Canada Last Night? Was It About The Money?

Reader, there are two sides to every story. People have heard one side and have become the judge, the jury, and the executioner. You cannot come to a conclusion just based off of one party allegedly telling the truth-that is nonsense. 


Anyhow rumors are being put forth on social media that Tasha Cobb refused to perform last night in Canada, because the venue hosting the event didn't have all her money.   What is in the dark, always comes to light. 



Trip Lee On Whether A Christian Can Love Jesus But Not the Church???

 
 
Reader this is a wonderful truth. I hope someone will tell white evangelicals that there is no way you can have hate in your heart and be a Christians....it's impossible.  I used to tell my youth that there are no "SUPERMAN" Christians (then I had to tell them who SUPERMAN was πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚). Collectively we are the body of Christ. Individually we are sinners saved by grace.

Anyhow, Trip Lee, teaching pastor at Cornerstone Church in Atlanta, answered in his latest interview with The Gospel Coalition whether or not a Christian can love Jesus but not the church. Trip, who is also a hip-hop artist, released a new album titled The Waiting Room last week.

What do you think?

  2. @Ann, what is your beef with Caucasian Christians? It seems like a lot of your posts lately has been attacts against our Caucasian brothers and sisters in Christ.

    Every since Trump won the presidency, a lot of African-American Christians have been attacking Caucasian Christians because they didn't vote for Hillary Clinton (The alleged lesser of two evils)...

    We must get away from this separation... there's no black, white, yellow, or orange Church... there is only One Church universal...

    Truth be told, we have a lot of African-American Christian leaders who are fleecing the flock and really don't care about the congregation apart from what they can get out of them.

    As for the question: the brother is right, we can't love God and hate the Church...

    1. The title of this blog is "the old black church" and I think that ms. Ann dies a great job of covering topics on a range of subjects.

    2. Rev. come on now so you don't want us to call out racist white evangelicals who operate in hate? How can we continue to build bridges across racial divides with those who have demonstrated, in overwhelming numbers, that they will partner with a person endorsed by the Ku Klux Klan? (TRUMP) First thing first, I want to make it clear, I don't have a problem or a beef with any of my white brothers and sisters in Christ who are trying to make a difference in the world. Matter of fact I'm still a big follower of quite a number of them and their teaching by way of social media. But what I do have a problem with is racist white evangelicals like the 81% that voted for racist, misogynist Trump. When I see stuff like this I'm going to post about it because it's out there: "White Evangelical Are Upset That The Movie The Shack Depicts God As A Black Woman." Acting like some white evangelical are not racist will not make it disappear nor make it go away.

    4. Rev.what is your problem? Anyone who voted for a self conceited pig like trump and call himself an evangelical is like calling himself a muslim and eating pork.We black folks do have a right to call out these racist white evangelicals. Good job Ms. Ann!

    5. I'm beginning to think like Ms. Ann that many "White Evangelicals" are just plain racist, who hate black folks.

    7. Ms. Ann,

      I have no problems with being against racism, but if we are going to use the verse 1 John 4:20 "If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? " , we gotta keep in mind GOD"S words that ALL "black" folks are not the "brethern" of the "white" evangelical Christian.

      It is the duty of the "black" Christian" to love the "white" Christian, just as much as it is the "white" Christian to love the "black Christian". Bottom line... "Christians are to love other Christians because this is how the world will know they are His disciples. If we are going to be against "racism" don't use this inspired biblical verse as a spring board to speak judgment against "white" evangelical Christians, their hatred for Black people because they voted for TRUMP.

      Also, please be fair. The KKK not ONLY supported TRUMP. Ku Klux Klan Grand Dragon Will Quigg endorsed Hillary Clinton for President. According to Mr. Quigg he liked Hilary because of her "hidden agenda."

    8. Yes, I'm against any racism from black, white, latino, whoever. Our focus still needs to be on continuing to love even our enemies as difficult as it may be. That's what Jesus did. Am I personally going to point it out in every breath I breathe, no, however there are racist ministers BLACK AND WHITE I've personally experienced. Especially being a musician. But I gotta say this; as I said before Ms. Ann, that Shack movie if it was a dog being depicted as "God" that is just as out of order as a black woman, white woman or whatever is way off. Anything outside of the Bible is wrong, period. I know what take pride in our struggles and what we've overcame, but it gets ridiculous at times when we totally leave scripture for artistic sake and to take pride in something that causes us to stick our chest out and make us feel warm and fuzzy inside. Just saying. Stick with the Bible none of this hollywood salacious junk.

  3. First of all Rev.KAC, Don't come on this blog attacking Lady Brock or others about how we feel about White Evangelicals. We are not RACISTS. I am a BIRACIAL Educated Woman. And I am a Republican that didn't VOTE for TRUMP. That's right I voted for HRC. Yes I am a Christian. And you can't say that you LOVE JESUS and HATE your Brother or Sister. I have no respect for the Black Preacher's either that take advantage of the congregations. They are no better than the White Evangelicals that spew hatred. Sin is Sin. Stealing is Stealing. Money Laundering is Money Laundering. Not following the Ten Commandments is the same for everyone. This blog is called the. Old Black Church for a reason. If you don't like what it stands for . Then stay off it. And start your own blog. But for the rest of us. Lady Brock keep up the good work. The Truth Shall Set You Free. Shalom

    1. @Anonymous, my sister doesn't need your defense, Mrs. Ann knows me by now.

      @Betty Sue, the same could be said about anyone who voted for Hillary Clinton. How soon we forget how the Clintons are responsible for the mass incarceration of African-Americans, Hispanics and Latinos... (For the record I didn't vote for Trump or Cinton)

    1. First of all, quit hitting the reply button TWICE. We don't need to see your double posts. Post one time, COPY what you typed using your mouse (or finger if you have a smartphone) THEN hit the reload button to see if whatever you typed posted. If it didn't post, then *copy* all that you typed into the little box at the bottom.

      Now, Bro. Kareem isn't attacking Miss Ann, he asked a question..and she responded. Many people like me have no interest in starting our own blog. Why would anybody start their own blog to spite Ms Ann? There are thousands of blogs out here, why would I start a brand new blog, when this one is doing fine as it is.

      There have been people who disagree with Ms Ann and IF they disagree respectfully, then those people STILL choose to visit here and say what's on their minds. You and others don't need to ask "OMG, what is wrong with you?" for just asking a question. That makes you look Childish.

      And as for "money laundering" WHAT about the MILLIONS of dollars stolen by the Clinton Foundation in Haiti? Don't want to talk about that...do you?

    3. @TooProtected... Mrs. Ann knows us by now and we the uphold truth at all cost... my grandmother used to tell us the old parable, "There are three sides to every story; your side, their side, and the truth."
      Sadly many have brought the side the government controlled media has sold.

    4. Everybody should know that the bottom line is Rev. Kareem ain't for no racism. Now, that's out the way. What I'm pretty sure what he's saying is that if we all constantly keep our minds, emotions, heartfelt sorrow as to who we thought should've been in office, we will become absolutely consumed by the race stuff and the CONTROLLED MEDIA will keep us all sucked into this vacuum of what satan loves 24/7. RACISM. It'll get to a point to where when we see a white person we'll look at them in disgust instead of loving them the way Jesus would. This race thing has almost brought us back into the 1960's and how ironic it seems that it got elevated with the 1st black Prez in office. Amazing. I'll deal with that subject at a level like many of you've never seen before when that posting comes. Ya'll will straight up not like me afterwards, lol, but I gotta get it off my chest. Anyway, we as black folks will not roll over and die all because Trump in office. We're a strong people that have overcome a million in one obstacles. The #1 attack will be not against a certain race, but the Christian faith. I'm telling ya'll and I promise, the controllers of this system in this world hate Jesus. He is their #1 threat and the Bible is their enemy. So while many of us are tripping on this Trump this and Trump that and the white evangelicals this and that....there's a demonic master plan at work and if we're not led by the Holy Ghost, it's over. Not too many preachers are talking about Genesis, the book of Daniel and Revelations and the technological advancements satan has delved himself into within this world's system. Destiny, favor, harvest, purpose, blessing, get yo house, get yo new car...etc. Open your eyes folks cause the clock is ticking. It's not a fantasy like the atheists who have gravitated themselves like never before into the media want you to believe.

  5. You people have NO spiritual discernment. To not see that a skin problem is a sin problem but to continue to talk about racism shows the level of spiritual understanding that is lacking for some who profess Christ. I guarantee that racism, sexism, ageism or any other ism will be here long after we are gone if Christ does not come back first, it is a sin problem plain and simple. Please don't come back with some foolishness about "white Christians" because there is no such thing just like there is no such thing as the "Black Christian" Christ died once for all. Like on this blog, just because someone says they are Christian does not mean that they are. Jesus said you will know them by their fruits. So if someone says they are a Christian and are racist then obviously they are not Christian just like anyone on this blog says they are a Christian and spout hate toward anyone then they are not Christian.

    James 3:9-13King James Version (KJV)
    9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.

  6. This is how racism is perpetuated from one generation to another - Racism has to be identified and called what it is - we can't continue putting other faces on it or dismissing it. Bottom line it's unacceptable behavior.

  7. Keep STANDING for the TRUTH, Rev.Kareem & Bro. Ira...I'm with you. As John 1:1-12 points out; HE (Jesus) came unto HIS own, and HIS own (people) did not receive HIM....SAD! When you speak the TRUTH, you WILL be persecuted...Jesus said it. So-called church folk are blind because they have not the MIND OF CHRIST. Anybody can talk religious and think they have a relationship with the Holy Spirit but are blind. I will say, YES, racism/hatred does exist, but look in the mirror...ALL OF US. Jesus is looking for a PEOPLE W/O spot or blemish... RIGHTEOUSNESS! SO, IF, my 3 BI-RACIAL kids would EVER disrespect their WHITE (German) mother (or the WHITE side of this family) I will get in their face...PERIOD! GOD is TRUTH and EVERY man/woman a lier...Having A form of GODLINESS but DENY the POWER (HOLY SPIRIT) there of. In Christ Alone, RLR.
