Powerful Viral Image, Of Russell & Ciara Wilson, Worshipping.

Image
The above picture of famous couple Russell and Ciara Wilson, supposedly taken at church yesterday, has gone viral sparking an online conversation. Some people are saying it's wrong, for the picture to be posted online while others are saying it's actually a testimony of God's Glory. I'm kind of sure the Wilson doesn't mind. As Jesus said what I speak to you in the secret places, shout it from the rooftops, and if anyone is ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of them. Light is meant to be seen not hidden under the table. This is beautiful and it encourages others that no matter who you are or where you come from, whatever situation you face, rich or poor, the reality is that we all need Jesus. At the foot of the cross, we are all the same.  Question what are your thoughts, should the picture have been posted online? 

The Church Of The Highlands, In Birmingham Alabama, Has Cut Ties With Minister Accused Of Rape🐾

Image
Church, you just can't make this stuff up, even if you tried. Why were this man's credentials not surrendered before he could do more damage? Where is the accountability in the Church of the Highlands? Why is there apparently no board oversight to prevent harm? While I believe people can be rehabilitated, there is NO excuse for putting someone in a position of authority with direct access to vulnerable people who trust them when they have a history of sexual abuse. Not disclosing that history is even more suspect.   Anyhow, two years ago Micahn Carter stepped down as the lead pastor of Together Church in Yakima, Washington, and there were rumors as to why, but no explanation from Micahn or the leaders of the church. He disappeared from social media and every piece of information on what happened was scrubbed from the internet. Now, there's a Reddit thread on the issue, and Mary Jones, the woman that Micahn had an affair with, has written her side of the story for the world

News Website Owner Gerald Jackson Allegedly Convicted Of Trying To Blackmail Jacksonville Attorney🐾

Image
Mr. Gerald Jackson, me, and my blog are once again fully supporting you through your hard times. A number of people have emailed me the information concerning you, so I decided to address it on my blog. I have been knowing Gerald Jackson for a while now mostly by messenger and online interaction, we are both from the great state of Alabama. I'm hurt and disappointed in what is being alleged and has transpired in the news concerning Gerald Jackson.  I have linked to a lot of Gerald's work in the past on my blog. Gerald Jackson is the owner of the news website “ The North Carolina Beat ” located in the state and city of Onslow North Carolina. It's being reported that Gerald will spend the next 11 months in state prison for allegedly trying to blackmail an attorney. Anyway, Gerald who lives in Jacksonville was found guilty on Tuesday of extortion after a jury trial in Onslow County. The prosecutors are alleging that he tried to extort $4,500 from a Jacksonville attorney in exc

Anti-black Pastor Voddie Baucham Accused Of Plagiarism😏😏

Image
Church plagiarism by pastors has been the topic of discussion in Christian news recently. Now Anti-black Pastor Voddie Baucham has been allegedly caught in serious plagiarism. Voddie's book Fault Lines has swept the minds and hearts of white conservatives and white political evangelicals alike, but a careful look at it reveals several deep and troubling problems. It’s hard for me to understand the desperation of a black man to resort to plagiarism to disprove CRT. I'm offended at Voddie's academic dishonest. I don't give a rat butt if we see eye to eye on race or CRT but don't be dishonest. This hurts the credibility of the church. VODDIE USES FALSE QUOTES and PLAGIARIZES 1) Not only has Voddie Baucham attributed false quotations, but he has both done so repeatedly and it appears he plagiarized some of the material he included. This is not acceptable. https://t.co/dTVvQ4lmPJ — Lambs Reign (@LambsReign) July 30, 2021

Survey Shows Trust In Nonprofit Groups Declining🐾

Image
 The climate we are in right now makes it easy for me to believe that our trust is declining for nonprofits and philanthropic organizations. A survey by Independent Sector , a coalition of nonprofits, foundations, and corporate giving programs, says,  while expectations for the sector remain high — 84% of respondents said they think nonprofits can strengthen American society and 65% said the same of philanthropy — only four percent of respondents said they currently trust major philanthropists or foundations, down from 15 percent the year before. The top factor contributing to people’s trust in an individual nonprofit is its ability to demonstrate purpose and integrity, and 45% of participants said they trust nonprofits to “do what is right,” down just 2 percentage points from 2020. Donors, volunteers, and voters as well as older respondents were more trusting in the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors, while Generation Z, those born after 1996, reported a significant trust decrease.

Why Christian Men Prefer Dating A Non-Christian Woman?

Image
 Church Judi Mason ( you can read it here )asked a couple of years ago why do so many Christian men prefer dating a non-Christian woman? The answer these men gave was extremely surprising.  In her article, she references some of the high profile Christian pastors and leaders who have turned to Hollywood to find their mates (Pastor Devon Franklin and actress Meagan Good, Gospel artist Israel Houghton and singer/talk show host Adrienne Bailon, Pastor Jamal Bryant, and whomever, Kenion Henderson and Shaunie O'Neal, etc.)  In that particular article, she said that she spoke with single Christian women to get the reasons they’ve encountered as to why they were being overlooked for less-traditional church girls and women outside the church altogether, as well as the challenges they face with Christian dating. Little did she know that a single Christian man would be so vocal regarding this topic.  She received countless emails, social media posts, and instant messages. The men were ready

Conservatives Are Enraged That Converse Unveil Designer Shoes With Satanic Symbol Replacing Brand’s Star Logo.

Image
  Back in the day, I literally had about 20 pairs of converse, in so many colors and I even had the platform ones. Chuck Taylors have been around for a very long time. Why ruin an awesome brand? After reading the article, the designer said it is a pentagram and there's an occult following in today's youth so yeah, he's aware of what he's doing.  Some online Conservatives are upset that Converse is collaborating with fashion designer Rick Owens, through his brand, Drkshdw. Converse has teamed up with Satan worshippers and is now using the pentagram to sell sneakers. The limit edition sneakers will feature a pentagram in place of the iconic Chuck Taylor star.  

AME Zion Bishop Staccato Powell Found Guilty, And Disrobed 😏😏

Image
Source Here: Church I thought that once you’re consecrated, it can’t be taken away??.. Wow. Learn something new every day.  According to online sources, the 51st Quadrennial Session of the AME Zion General Conference meeting in Atlanta, Georgia after conducting a fair trial, reviewing extensive documentary evidence, hearing witnesses, and providing an opportunity for a full defense, has voted to convict Reverend Staccato Powell...who was found guilty of the violation of church law, among other charges. He has been disrobed from the Office of Bishop in the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church. A core principle of Methodism is accountability. No position, regardless of prominence, is beyond this proposition. Our Discipline states: “A Bishop is consecrated for life, or so long as their spirit and practice are such as become the Gospel.” Further, it informs that “Bishops are set apart to serve as models of servant leadership and must exercise their responsibilities consistent with an e

White Evangelicals Resist C***d-19 Vaccine Most Among Religious Groups😏😏

Image
Well, this is not shocking....the group who made a traitor into their messiah and who systematically reject science in favor of their dogma are the ones refusing the vaccine? Who would have thought?? We really need to completely rethink the educational system in this country, something has gone terribly wrong. How can we the citizens of this great country forget about all the vaccines; we had to take or we wouldn't have been able to go to school?  Polio vaccines, Diphtheria vaccine, Tetanus vaccine, Pertussis vaccine, Smallpox vaccine, Measles vaccine, Mumps vaccine, Rubella vaccine, and the Smallpox. And to think most of those vaccines were never tested. White evangelicals resist COVID-19 vaccine most among religious groups https://t.co/0WsqqMZ2se — Slappy san (@Slappy_san) July 29, 2021

Pastor Jamal Bryant Is Accused Of Owing The IRS Nearly $800,000 In Back Taxes.

Image
Church it's been alleged by Radar Online that the IRS has placed a lien against New Birth Senior Pastor Jamal Bryant, Baltimore property, which is owned by his parents, John and Cecilia Bryant. As of today the lien remains active and has yet to be released by the IRS.  When the news broke Pastor Bryant was over at Jordan River doing the work of the Lord. Also while in Israel for the week praying, reflecting, planning, journaling. When praying at the Wailing Wall. Pastor Bryant told his followers,  I’m praying for you today tell me your last name for me to leave on the wall. Heaven is open and GOD is listening.  

DC Police Officer Daniel Hodges Told A Congressional Committee The January 6 Terrorists Perceived Themselves To Be Christians😏😏

Image
Church today four Capitol Police officers gave their sworn testimony to members of Congress convened to investigate the Jan. 6 terrorists attack, as the officers defended the Capitol from a violent mob.  “ I saw the Christian flag directly to my front. Another read, ‘Jesus is my savior, Trump is my president.’ "   Hodges said the crowd massing at the US Capitol brandished banners steeped in Christian symbolism along with those bearing the name Trump. In my opinion, Jan 6 was one of the darkest days for our country and our democracy....alone with slavery.  Those who refuse to support this investigation are as much a danger to us as those who stormed the capitol. These testimonies are truly heart-wrenching especially Ofc. Daniel Hodges.  I would encourage every citizen of the USA to watch and listen. The truth is hard to cope with, however, we must know the truth.  

Pastor Greg Locke Tells The Congregation He'll Throw Them Out If They Take C***D Precautions😏

Image
White supremacist pastor Greg Locke says that if anyone in his congregation shows up to church wearing a mask, he'll kick them out. I'm out of words in describing these so-called faith leaders. So, basically, if the entire congregation decides to use their brains this pastor would be broke. Once, you start messing with the church's money. Money bet you, this butthole has already been vaccinated. You got to be a special kind of stupid to followers of folks like this.    View this post on Instagram A post shared by TEA N THE SHADE 🌴 (@tea_n_the_shade)    .

Is COGIC Partnering With Facebook To Charge Users $10 Per Month For Exclusive Content, Such As Messages From Their Bishop😏?

Image
What do you all think about this? It's a good idea until a church goes against their “community guidelines” and is put into FB jail. Facebook has started partnering with churches to make the platform a virtual home for religious communities and to help their message and services “go further farther on Facebook.” In my opinion, most of the "churches" in America don't even preach the Gospel anymore anyway, hence Facebook feels comfortable teaming up with them. This falls on the "churches," not on Facebook. Facebook is a business, the church is supposed to be about winning souls.   The Times reported that Facebook has been courting religious groups since at least 2018, but it's made even more effort over the past year. The Times spoke with the Leaders of the Church of God in Christ church, which recently trialed two new tools from Facebook to help it make money. The first let worshippers donate to the church while watching live-streamed services, and the

Liberty University Sued By 12 Women Claiming School Policies Made Sexual Assault And Rape More Likely.

Image
A new class-action lawsuit was just filed against Liberty University by 12 sexual assault survivors, who say the evangelical school founded by Jerry Falwell has encouraged an unsafe environment that enables campus rape. When women spoke to Jesus, he listened -- and he believed them. Christians need to do the same thing today, calling out the harm done in our name to replace it with Christ-like love and compassion.   

If A Church Isn’t Growing, Should The Pastor Be Fired?

Image
Church recently, Bishop David A. Oyedepo a Nigerian pastor has allegedly fired more than forty of his pastors. His reason? Low church growth.  Now, in my opinion, pastors can preach a Salvation message to a lost crowd, however, the pastor cannot make that lost crowd get saved. That is the work of the Holy Spirit, not the pastor. The Holy Spirit is the force that convicts the heart of man. Pastors can only preach the word. Firing pastors because the church is not growing is crazy to me.  If the pastors are preaching a Salvation message and the people still are not getting saved, it is not the fault of the pastor... ...it is the fault of the people being preached to. They are not responding to the Spirit that convicts. Pastors should never be released from their duties because "the church is not growing." Rather, they should be released from their duties if they are not preaching the truth as it is written in the word of God. What yall think? This is the Twitter thread

A Married Pastor Has Been Arrested After Allegedly Drugging, Grooming, And Then Raping A 15-year-old Girl In Texas.

Church here we go again with another pastor out of control. People are saying that he should never have been counseling this young girl alone. Anyhow, a married Texas pastor who claims he was only counseling a 15-year-old girl, and her family is now in jail after police say he groomed her, gave her methamphetamines, and then raped her multiple times in the last month, including at church. The teenager was hospitalized after her most recent encounter. Brian Pounds, 45, who was listed as the lead pastor at First Assembly of God in Vernon along with his wife, Amy, has been charged with sexual assault of a child and delivery of a controlled substance to a child, according to his redacted arrest warrant.

The Evils Of America!

Image
This nation has ALWAYS taught half-truths while trying to maintain, a reputation amongst the international community, that they are people with standards, morals, and above all, God-fearing. Yet, their HISTORY, speaks volumes as to who they really are. I found the below post on my social media timeline and thought it was an interesting and disgusting read. " She was Thomas Jefferson's slave. Called his "mistress," but how can you be a mistress when you were a slave, a child, and could not consent? Had absolutely no choice? She bore him 6, perhaps as many as 8 children. He kept her locked in a basement room. The room was recently unearthed, and DNA evidence has proven the lineage of Sally's children. She was between 12 and 14 years old when he started raping her, and Jefferson was in his forties. He freed the children that he had with her, but not Sally. Her daughter had to free her mother after Jefferson passed away. This is not taught in schools. This side of hi

Hillsong Church Member and Graduate Stephen Harmon Who Mocked The Coronavirus Virus, Has Died.

Church Hillsong Church member and graduate Stephen Harmon, who mocked the Coronavirus Vaccine with much foolish faith talk, and who tweeted 'I Got 99 Problems but a Vax Ain't One' dies after month-long severe battle with the Coronavirus plague and a final 'Pray for Me' message. This man who joked about not getting vaccinated died of the coronavirus a little more than a month later. Stephen Harmon's death was announced by the Hillsong Church founder Brian Houston on Twitter on Thursday. Houston wrote on Instagram that Harmon was in his early 30s, a graduate of Hillsong College, and a "vital part of our church in California." "He was one of the most generous people I know and he had so much in front of him," Houston wrote.

Dr. Tony Evans Explanation Of CRT🐾

Image
I've been doing this blog thing for a long time and in my long time of blogging, there has never been a black pastor with more influence among the white evangelical community than Dr.Tony Evans. However, Dr. Evans influence on the white evangelical community, in part, (some may argue a large part) is because they've always perceived Dr. Evans as a Republican who aligned with their ideology.  Now,I listened to Dr. Tony Evans Bible Study from July 14 as he explained  CRT and he explains it perfectly. It is educational, powerful, and clears up all misunderstandings.  Dr. Tony Evans gives a thoroughly Biblical perspective on Critical Race theory, explaining why misunderstandings and incorrect assertions are being combined with CRT and thus creating confusion. Dr. Evans proposes the solution the Church should be focusing on: Kingdom Race Theology. It clears up confusion and helps Believers focus on what we should be focusing on please listen, learn and consider what it is to focus o

Wholesome Southern Values Strike Again.

According to Julie Roys, the former campus pastor of a Southern Baptist megachurch in Jacksonville, Florida, has been charged and jailed for allegedly grooming and sexually molesting a girl from the time she was 12 until she turned 17. Jeffrey Bedwell, 38, former campus pastor of Chets Creek Church, was arrested and charged on July 8 with four counts, including molestation and battery of a minor, and transmission of material harmful to minors. Bedwell committed the alleged acts from 2013 until 2018 while serving as a youth pastor at Chets Creek. “(We are) shocked and devastated to learn of the charges,” said Chets Creek Senior Pastor Spike Hogan. “Right now, our primary focus is to pray for any person who has been harmed and support them in any way they need,” he added. “Please pray with us as we are once again reminded that we live in a dark world that needs help and hope that only God can bring.”  

Another Catholic Bishop Is In A Whole Lot Of Trouble.

Image
The top administrator of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, Monsignor Jeffrey Burrill, has resigned amid allegations he was a regular user of Grindr and frequented gay bars. Catholic news site The Pillar was the first to report the claims and said it had access to Burrill’s cellphone data that showed he used the LGBTQ+ dating app. Burrill’s resignation from his position as general secretary came in a memo from Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles to the bishops of the United States. ‘On Monday, we became aware of impending media reports alleging possible improper behavior by Msgr. Burrill,’ wrote Gomez. ‘What was shared with us did not include allegations of misconduct with minors. However, in order to avoid becoming a distraction to the operations and ongoing work of the Conference, Monsignor has resigned effective immediately,’ he added. Before taking on the top job at the US Bishops’ conference, Burrill was a parish priest and a professor.

Ben & Jerry Makes A Gutsy Move!

Israel's Prime Minister called the move "morally wrong" and vowed to fight it. The U.S. wants so badly to ignore what Israel does to Palestinian territories, destroying their homes, kicking people out into the street. It's not right and makes us complicit. I applaud Ben and Jerry's for standing up for what's right. All good people should.
