COGIC Women Should Boycott The UpComing Women's International Convention?????


Reader Bishop Earl Carter of the 7000 Club Fellowship, Inc is back in the news with his latest video.....in which he's encouraging the COGIC women to boycott the upcoming women's convention in May....due to the firing of the General Supervisor of the International Department of Women, Mother Wille Mae Rivers. 


According to Bishop Carter, Mother Rivers has served as General Supervisor of the International Department of Women of the Church of God in Christ for over 20 faithful years......and because of her service and gratitude, she should have been allowed to die out in her appointed position instead of being forced out.

    1. Maybe you can help me out. What were her assigned duties as General Supervisor of Women? Were these duties backed by Scriptures? What would you deem it effective, given her position? Inquiring minds want to know.

    2. I agree with Bishop Earl Carter. Mother Willie Mae Rivers was the 6th General Supervisor for the Dept of Women for the Church of God in Christ. Each of the previous Supervisors served the church well until they were transitioned to be with the Lord. Mother Willie Mae Rivers has done an outstanding job serving the Women's Dept. The most active and the most traveled Supervisor the church has ever had. At 91 she should have been allowed to finish this her way. I am very disappointed she was asked to resign. Yes she is 91 years old, but Mother did her job with a spirit of excellence. So she will be the first General Supervisor that has been replaced for no other reason than someone else was desired.

    3. Everyone has an opinion on this but in reality I agree with you COGIC Bishop, not in our history has a supervisor been asked to step down. I pray our Presiding Bishop has prayed about his new appointments and that this grand ol church will prosper and not be a hinderance to the body of Christ.

    4. Let me clear somethings up, she was granted Emeritus Status. She was not replaced. She served faithfully and had no problem with releasing the leadership with all of the responsibilities of the Office of General Supervisor to another. Mother is 90yrs old , she is in reasonable Health , now shes able to cease from the rigorous traveling in and out of the Country and share her quality years with her family. This was not done to harm Mother after 20yrs of phenomenal service , she will continue to be loved and highly respected.

    5. OK Bishop. We get it, the procedure. She was not replaced. She was granted Emeritus Status. We get all this. But how was all this done? Was she given notice? Did she agree to transition? Was there a meeting with her and the board? Is there going to be an APPRECIATION SERVICE (COGIC is BIG on that) for Mother Rivers? Will she be publically be recognized by the COGIC for her years of services?

      If none of these are to take place Bishop, I'll conclude here that YOU are indeed full of rhetoric, and are carrying the same Spirit of Blake. No need to troll this site, or any other site to come to a defense of all this COGIC debacle.

      Everything in God, should be done in decent and in order.

      GET OUTTA HERE BISHOP!!!

  2. He's not telling a LIE. He's telling the gospel TRUTH. They had the COGIC Leadership Conference in January. Blake got up and commented how Saintly Mother Rivers was and how the young. middle age and the senior women love her. And how she is teaching the young women's about Holiness. Usually that's when all the appointments are made. Then they are installed in April during the April Call Buisness Meeting. Well Blake and the General Board had a Retreat in Arizona that nobody knew about except a select few. That is where he made the changes. He wasn't even man enough to call Mother Rivers and talk to her. He did and then put the letter on the COGIC Website. What kind of leader let alone a man is that. We all know that his wife Mae Otis Lawrence Blake wears the pants in the family and helps run the church. Mother Rivers is about Holiness or Hell. She has served COGIC Women's International Department faithfully. She is a True SAVED Woman of GOD. They dont like that. Blake has always been disrespectful to the Elderly of the COGIC. He is all about self. Yes folks are very upset about how he did it. The BIBLE States that everything should be done in decently and in order. We are praying for Mother Rivers and Mother Lewis she is going to need it.

  3. No one is saying that Mother Rivers should have stayed in the position of General Supervisor of Women COGIC for LIFE. But truly she deserves to be RESPECTED. Get duties are to make sure that the Women's of the COGIC are doing what they are supposed to be doing Biblically. Mother Rivers has stated over and over again. That these preacher's wives needs to be more loving and kind, let the Mothers of the Church teach the women's like it States in the BIBLE. That Salvation is a lifestyle not a career. That they needs to tone down there make up, dress modestly. That folks should know that you represent Holiness. They don't want to hear that. Mother Rivers isn't perfect nobody is. But she teaches that 45 and under class it is always packed to capacity. So that should tell you something. There are some women's that want to be taught. The majority these COGIC Churches aren't teaching the women anything except. Worshipping the no Biblical base title First Lady it's all about her and what she wants and needs. Mother Frances Kelly and The Prayer Warriors used to have 1 1/2 hour of prayer Blake changed that. If you missed the Morning Prayer of the Women's International Convention you have truly missed something. Mother Elsie Shaw, Mother Frances Kelly,Bishop Clemmons,Bishop James the old pioneer's of the church. We have always been taught that COGIC was a Holy Church, Santified Church, Hand Clapping, Tongue Talking, PENTECOSTAL Church Of God In Church. Blake let's Majic Johnson son come to church dressed as a woman. God is not pleased with all this foolishness. It was prophesied years ago that Blake would get to be the PB but it would be so much scandal under his leadership. That it would take that for the people's to turn back to GOD and to the Old Landmark. And it is truly has started happening. He should have never ever did what he did to Elder Earl Carter. It's Holiness or Hell. If you ever went to a COGIC convention especially Holy Convocation and the AIM . It's disgusting how the Homosexuals and the Lesbians are openly and bold. The folks be complaing , the hotels be complaing. They can turn a church service into a circus. Mr. Obnoxious William Mc Cray he never ever never writes anything BAD about Blake or the Sheards. He knows better than that. Evangelist Denise L. Young California Southern First COGIC Jurisdiction

  4. Miss Ann,

    It seems that the COGIC fruit is not the good kind. Elder Carter may have something to say about the recent changes, but COGIC members who are believers in Christ should heed the call of "Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues" (Revelation 18:4).

    COGIC is clearly no longer about righteousness.

    The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall NOT want...

  5. At the International Women's Convention last year in Detroit on that Friday night which is Bishop Blake official night. It's on You Tube. Mae Blake was so disrespectful all week to Mother Rivers but that night was the cake topper. She got up talking about her husband was a Real man they had 3 children and calling Elder Earl Carter the devil. She went on and on for over 45 minutes. Folks were walking out. Blake and his wife and the backstabbing folks that was running for reelection. Blake knew that HE was going to take Mother Rivers down. But he also knew that if he made that statement he wouldn't have been re-elected as The PB that is the bottom line. Blake had been on the General Board for so so long but never getting to be the PB. His wife only came to the Holy Convocation during Election year. Bishop G. E. Patterson made Blake his 1 assistant cause he didn't trust him. He always said keep your enemies closer. If you look at Bishop Patterson funeral tape. Blake looks at Bishop Patterson in his casket and smiles and smirked. Blake is a very evil person. He has made more folks unqualified for Auxzillary Bishops and Jurisdictional Bishops. So they can VOTE for him. If you make them Bishops then they can make folks elders and other positions so they can be eligible to vote for Blake and who he tells them to vote for during the election years. Cause they OWE him. Blake has replaced Bishops that don't agree with him. State Supervisors have been replaced that preached Holiness or Hell. He replaced Bishop Carlos Moody over the International Mission's Department who served faithfully and spent his own finances. All the folks that were in positions that really truly worked hard in the positions and used there own finances and truly loved and had the heart of GOD . And a heart for the people's Blake replaced them with folks that will do whatever he says do. They worship him and the positions. He put them all on 6 figure salaries, travel expenses and hotel etc. Mother Mc Coo Lewis will be on a 6 figure salary plus expenses. Mother Willie Mae Rivers wasn't.If Blake likes you and especially if his wife Mae L. Blake like you . You don't have to worry about nothing. And of course she will HELP put together the new . International COGIC Women's Department. And yes there are some folks that needs to be replaced in the Women's Department. Olive Brown, Diane Bogan, Angie Rivers, Artaska King, Lucille Spann, Edith Mc Grew, Just to name a few. You Reap What You Sow. I think some folks no matter who they are forget that.

  6. I agree with Elder Carter on this one... I've been COGIC all my life and we've always had our issues but Bishop Blake is really on a mission to tear this organization apart. I see another major split in the works soon. The only reason he's Bishop is because Magic Johnson, Denzel, Samuel Jackson etc goto his church. I never understood how he got so far because he can't preach and he reads all his sermons from a notebook word fir word.. huh???

  7. Bishop Blake if youre reading this, these people are trying to take your crown, they trying to come for you. Like they tried to come for Bishop Caesar.

    But NONE of them know you or your fruit!!

    Everyone of yous needs to SIT down! I am only one person I can't hold these "dogs" off with a stick forever. Any other supporters out here?

      Sorry man. I agree that Bishop reads his sermons.

    2. Yup...

      AND although, for the most part most, messages from COGIC preachers lack any real substance, and most of their messages are simply all over the place, the one thing that COGIC preachers can do, at least a good one, is speak in a way to get the emotions of the audience going.

      BLAKE, however, with his mode of speaking to appear as intellectual, speaks in a real stiff manner, and his messages too, lack real substance with him seeming to force his "annointing" to get folks spurred emotionally. BLAKE IS A DUD!!!

      All these ministers in there pulpits are a JOKE. Most of them are not skilled at all how to prepare a good sermon.

      If THEIR leaders can't get it right from their greatest platform (the pulpit), no wonder so many of these such brush fires occur, and they haven't a clue how to put them out!

      And by they way, the women will not boycott this conference. If they do, they'll suffer from major withdrawal.

      Please elaborate on Blake's fruit.

    4. There is so much dis-respect with Black people it is ludicrous! I have a sense that you don't respect the office or title that the blessed, beloved Bishop has earned... Because you keep referring to Bishop Blake by his LAST NAME! This ain't some man from down the street, this is the one and only BISHOP Charles Edward Blake we're talking about! And referring to BISHOP Caesar as ol' girl Shirley is very vulgar.

      Maybe Blake's timely messages are too DEEP for you and your ilk. Blake doesn't speak in a stiff manner, as you call it! To answer the other question, one of Bishop Blake's fruit is *joy*! Like I said, maybe BISHOP Blake is too deep for the likes of you.

      Enjoy the pond where the minnows and toads are. Let the DEEP Christians swim in the DEEP waters.

    5. @ Minnows and toads,

      One of the fruits of the Holy Spirit is joy. "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace..." (Galatians 5:22). Now we all know that Blake is NOT the Spirit.

      Our LORD Jesus defined what the fruit of the false prophets shall be - evil fruit (Matthew 7:15-17). If Blake's fruit was good fruit, I'm sure many of the respondents on this blog would say so.

      If we do not title Blake, we are NOT being disrespectful. Believers shouldn't get so hang up on titles and forget the essence of why Christ died for us. In Matthew 23, Jesus instructs us that there is only one who is Lord over us - Christ.

      I would strongly advise you to read the WORD of God, it is for life, preservation, wisdom, knowledge, and understanding (Psalm 119). It is by the WORD of God that we are warned of evil (Psalm 19). The WORD of God has been tried, tested (Psalm 12) and found to be true (John 17:17). And Blake is in no position to teach you such truth except the Spirit of truth (John 16:13).

      The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall NOT want...

    6. NOPE...YOU WRONG..

      I don't disrespect titles God ordains. I DON'T however, cater to the likes of Blake and Ol' Girl Shirley, using these titles, given their ungodly conduct.

      LOOK...You really need to sit back and note your own hypocrisy. You say I was disrespectful referencing your PB as "Blake", when you did the same thing.

      TALK All your want about Blake being DEEP. THIS dude is not a great handler of Scriptures. MOST in COGIC knows he is boring and no real fruit comes out of his messages. Somehow, you want to walk in your own blindness, or be in denial.

      Man your comments are always so disrespectful. You need to get a life.
      Ms. Ann please start blocking this troll from your site. This person is bitter and has way too much time because he comments on EVERYTHING and talks disrespectfully about everybody. Get a life dude!

    8. Sorry Son...I call these false prophets (BLAKE, KIRK, JUANITA,PAULA,JAKES, YOLANDA, MARY MARY, and YOU if you are one of them...I do applaud BISHOP EARL CARTER though) as the Bible calls them. All these workers of iniquity just so happen to pop up here on OLD BLACK CHURCH, a BLOG mind you...CYBERSPACE OK where people Comment, Respond and reply. YOU REALLY NEED TO CHILLAX!!!

      MANY LIKE you would say Jesus' words were disrespectful when he called the Pharisees and SADUCEES snakes and vipers. Or maybe Peter when he called some foolish and bewitched and brute beasts with pernicious ways.

      YOU sir are the product of that Joke of a Bishop, you choose to be your leader. Talking about a waste of time, you just wasted your time pleading for Ms Ann to block me. Since you identified yourself as being a part of their Men's Dept, why not come to the OLD BLACK CHURCH, and at least quote a Scripture PER the subject matter at hand. If you choose not to do that, at least post something intellectually, cause I don't believe Ms Ann is going to honor your request.

      I posted to say here about BLAKE, his messages are trite. This after one of your sisters said HE CAN'T PREACH. I've been a part of that organization and was dying spiritually until the LORD GAVE ME LIFE, knowing the real truth about His Son. No need for me to "get a life" as YOU in your childish way suggests. I have been given life by the ONE who spoke to say I AM THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE! No man,nor death, nor life nor principalities NOR YOU can separate me FROM THE LOVE OF GOD.

      You better get your life right. Stop sinning, repent and ask God to deliver you from evil. Only through the Savior, you will ever be made glad.

  8. Lady Brock, This is truly sad . No there's not going to be anything done for Mother Rivers. She was FORCED OUT. Blake nor the General Board even talked to Mother Rivers before they did anything. They had that retreat in Arizona and all the Dirty Low Down Dealings was done there. He just saw Mother Rivers in January at the COGIC Leadership Conference in January in Arkansas. So why didn't he and the GB do it then ? Cause that's when all the appointments are made. But he nor his flunkies wasn't man enough to do it. Mother Rivers is in better health than Blake and some of General Board Member's and even Mother Lewis. Mother Rivers isn't a THIEF so they needs to STOP spreading that LIE. She is truly a SAVED WOMAN. Blake is nothing more than a money hungry, position happy, Hitler , Black Church Gangster him Brooks and Macklin. The only real men on the GB that stands up to Blake is. Bishop Daniels, Bishop Wells and the late Bishop Frank O. White. The rest are punks they are just out for themselves. Bishop Sheard got what he wanted Dorinda got the position. Church Politicians are just like the regular politicians. And no she wasn't offered to be Emeritus Supervisor. Mother Rivers isn't a fool she knew that Blake and his flunkies and his followers didn't like her. But Mother Rivers is a SAVED WOMAN and she let's GOD do what HE has to do. Blake can't preach he has always been boring his wife does a better job than him or his sons. But the wife has such a NASTY personality. The way they did Mother Rivers was wrong . Even Ray Charles could see that. If they truly wanted to do it properly and correct by Mother Rivers. They should have sit down last year. And announce it to the people's. And let this year's COGIC Women's International Convention be her official sendoff. Mother Rivers deserved to be treated better than what they have done to get. Blake knew if he did that he wouldn't be the PB he would be out. Blake day is coming, Brooks day is coming, Macklin day is coming. You don't treat your senior citizens and saints in the church the way these charlatan have. And Mae Otis Lawrence Blake her day is coming she didn't even treat her own Mother and Father right so what do you expect from her . She has been disrespectful to Mother Rivers every since Blake became BP. And Mother Mc Coo Lewis I wouldn't want the position she knew what was going to happen her day is coming also. God don't like ugly. And God don't care nothing about pretty. You Reap What You Sow. So all you Blake followers and flunkies that come on this blog staring lies and foolishness. Y'all needs to ask yourselves what kind of so called man of God would treat a Senior Mother Rivers the way he has. Oh yeah I know the same one that. Paid for a Maid, Nurse, Sitter for his Mother to stay with his Brother cause Lady Blake didn't want his Mother in there. Beverly Hills Mansion. Even though it was larger. And his Brother and his family had to make sacrifices for that. That's called a PUNK. IJS

  10. Blake will not be giving Mother Rivers a pension. Yet when Assistant General Secretary Carolyn Fryson was put in retirement. They gave her a pension, she gets to go to the Holy Convacation for free plus other benefits. They didn't give that to Bishop Moody , General Counsel Enoch Perry, Mother Luceille Spann, Bishop Winbush just to name a few. And they aren't giving my aunt Lady Vivian Haynes nothing. Blake is just destroying COGIC. He is nothing but a Black Mafia Capone. Mother Rivers is a Senior citizen and she is a saint that belongs to GOD. Touch Not My Anointed. They keep saying something happened last year. That's CRAP. Why didn't they called a meeting then. No those gangsters knew that the Women are the ones that truly have the power in the church. But those silly women want positions and titles so bad. They settle for being less than a woman for. St. John Knits, Money ,Hats, Mansions, Vehicle's, Adjutants. And that false title . First Lady. And State Supervisors, District Missionaries. Those things are more important than there SOULS, Self Respect,Womanhood. They won't boycott the convention. If they do that they can't compete against each other. For who has the biggest hat, the best outfits. Blake wanted to be the Presiding Bishop again so he waited until he got back in for a full 2 complete turn . Then he and his flunkies started there plot to destroy. The Saintly Mother Rivers. Had he announced his intentions before the voting he knows that he wouldn't be the Presiding Bishop anymore. You don't go around mistreating our seniors . Mother Rivers is loved and respected by everyone. She carries herself in a SAVED HOLY WAY that a SAVED WOMAN should. And she teaches that to the young and they love her wisdom. Mae Blake will never ever be a Woman of Character, A Woman of Love, A Bishops Wife that the people's love like . Mother Louise Dowdy Patterson. Mother Patterson has class, she shows genuine love and kindness to the people's, she is friendly, she can preach, she has never forgotten from whence she came from, she is always open and honest with the people's. We will always and mean lifetime always love Mother Patterson and Mother Rivers. They aren't phony , evil ,mean wicked and nasty towards the people's. We don't needs Hollywood folks to make us feel like we are something. We already know that we are somebody cause GOD don't make junk. We be tired of Blake bringing in these celebrities in for $250 dinners , conforences,these folks aren't saved. They just got money. Start preaching holiness in your church Blake and see how many stay and support you. Blake and his family needs to stay in Los Angeles and leave the church . And let a True SAVED HOLY GHOST FILLED Presiding Bishop FILLED that position. So that COGIC can get back to the Old Landmark. Before it's too late.
