Church News: Pastor Dennis Meredith An Affirming Pastor Becomes Bishop Of A Once Traditional Black Church.


Reader Bishops are the exception rather than the rule with black Baptists, but over the past couple of years, some Baptist churches have elevated pastors to bishops, citing biblical precedent and their ministers' influential leadership. Bishops already are incorporated in historically black denominations such as the Church of God in Christ and the African Methodist Episcopal Church.



 Last weekend Atlanta's Tabernacle Baptist Church consecrated its first ever gay affirming bishop Pastor Dennis Meredith.....Atlanta’s Tabernacle Baptist Church, is home to many of the city’s LGBT Christians.  



I am having an extremely hard time understanding why becoming a Bishop is so popular amongst non denominational churches? There is no biblical based for the title. Pastor H.B.Charles Jr, of the Shiloh Baptist Church Jacksonville FL, wrote a interesting piece on this subject a couple of years ago.( Read it here)




Anyway, Sunday, Tabernacle Baptist Church broke with Baptist tradition to consecrate the Rev. Dennis Meredith as bishop, the first in the congregation's 100 plus year history. As Meredith laid prostate on the floor bishops from a variety of denominations, including Pentecostal, laid hands on him, ratifying his spiritual authority as bishop.

  4. This whole mess stinks in the nostrils of God and the church is falling for it. The reason this bishop title is so popular is because the church has elevated this title as the "all knowing knowledgeable one" over all churches. And practices of the demonic catholic church has crept in and these churches are following the same methods.

  5. Paul Morton started this madness and it has split Black baptists across the country. Immorality is never appropriate in the house of God and for this man to become a "Bishop" is unbelievable. Stay in prayer for these individuals.

  6. Miss Ann,

    The title bishop exists in the WORD of God. I can't believe this is even a point of contention.

    "For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls." (1 Peter 2:25)

    "This is a true saying, if a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre: but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil." (1 Timothy 3:1-7)

    I for one have purposed to follow the Bishop in 1 Peter 2 (Jesus Christ); because I know for sure the bishop in 1 Timothy 3 doesn't exist. (Please note the difference between Bishop and bishop).

    Back to the issue at hand. Meredith has been consecrated as a bishop but he isn't the bishop as defined in 1 Timothy 3. It is a worldly title he has received and going by the pictures, all those robes and rituals take his congregation straight back to Rome (who have been known for covert homosexuality). He is, therefore, right where he belongs.

    As for the leading gentleman, them shoes.... LOL!!!
