So There Was Christianity In Africa Before The White Man Even Got There?

Image
Reader I absolutely loved this article! Well written and a great approach to this new trend. I see it a lot here in Jacksonville, FL. It has a strong presence here, as I would imagine many other metropolitan cities have as stated in the article. For those that still think Christianity is the white mans religion or that it was bought via slavery you may want to read these truths.

The Word Network Announces New Tavis Smiley Show “The Upside”!

Image

Kenneth Copeland Adds New $36 Million Dollar G5 Gulfstream Jet To His Air Fleet!!

Image
Reader if anyone "preaches" the kind of fake "gospel" that justifies them buying a $36M jet because otherwise they'd have to fly on a "long tube of demons," run the other way. Fast. This kind of theology is destructive, dangerous and idolatrous.

According to report, some of the 13 Turpin children were found shackled with chain and padlocks in their own home. They were also emaciated and pale. Thankfully, the 17-yr old daughter was able to escape and notify authorities.

The Arrest Of Apostle Darrell Yancey!

Image
Reader according to Leonard D. Robinson II, at Church Folk Revolution there's some good news......Apostle Darrell Yancey has been arrested. For that many women to come forward and say that he raped them as children and even IMPREGNATED them, and did it in the name of the Lord. He's sick and have been turned over to a reprobate mind. I pray that he be dealt with fairly and may the Lord God deal with him merciful.

Dr. Tony Evans On Reversing Discrimination Consequences!

Image
Reader "Reversing Discrimination Consequences, Part 1", is a new teaching series by Dr. Tony Evans. The truth is, even Christians who believe we’re all equal under God can treat some people like they’re “more equal” than others. Tony Evans will talk about why fairness ought to begin within the family of God and why dealing with discrimination should take seconds instead of centuries.

Lord Have Mercy, Another Testimony Gone Wrong😡!

Image
☝Reader, I'm not knocking this lady testimony at all but I'm asking why in the world would anyone stay with someone who attempted to kill them? 👇Below is a clip of District Missionary, Lucy Hill's testimony about her husband who tried to kill her back in the day.  

Say What, Dr. Todd Hall, Satan Is Not The Author of Sin!!

Image
Reader this is some what of an old clip of Dr. Todd Hall teaching that Satan is not the author of sin. Now I'm one who believed that sin originated in heaven, when Satan rebelled and wanted to be worshipped. He said. “I will ascend in the heavens and set my throne above the stars of God and I will make myself like the Most High.” As you Bible readers know he led a heavenly rebellion against God and took a third of the angels with him. So in my understanding sin originated in heaven. Itis men like Todd Hall that proves how simpleminded some folks really are. I have watched preachers like him for years talk really slow while saying really elementary crap and some folks act like fools to impress them. Come on my people - Stop Shouting and start studying and you will cease to be impressed!

Pope Francis: Says It’s A Sin If Fear Makes Us Hostile To Migrants!!

Image
Reader Pope Francis reminds us why and how we ended up with 45 as the President of this great country and all that it implies. I have no doubt the Pope is right on this. Pope Francis seems to think that there are no sh**holes, only a**holes. 
“Having doubts and fears is not a sin,” the pope said. “The sin is to allow these fears to determine our responses, to limit our choices, to compromise respect and generosity, to feed hostility and rejection.” Francis elaborated: “The sin is to refuse to encounter the other, the different, the neighbor,” instead of seeing it as a “privileged opportunity” to encounter God.

Pastor Rick Warren Lit A Fire Under Some Of His Followers When He Tweeted Psalm 36:2-4!!

Image
Reader Pastor Rick Warren has lit a burning fire under some of his followers early today when he tweeted Psalm 36:2-4. Some are accusing him of attacking 45 with the tweet. All I can say is the best thing about Scripture is it speaks for itself, convicts the heart when necessary, and so many other things... but the best thing is when it’s spoken/read it does not return void. Stand up Rick to the racism that you see and hear from him. Haha, I'm waiting for other local ministers to speak out lest they alienate some of their "flock".

Trump "COON" Advisory Finds Biblical Justification for “Shithole” Comment??👿🐾

Image
👿Reader, like I, said before you can make the Bible justify and say anything you want it to justify and say.🐾 "COON" Preacher Mark Burns will defend anything 45 says and does, no matter how awful it is, and his latest effort led to a shouting match on CNN. 

The Stockholm Syndrome is extremely strong with this "COON" and I’m not totally sure why because he has everything to lose and *will* lose once 45 reigns of terror are said and done. I also don’t like the narrative that surrounds immigration issues that suggest only certain kinds of immigrants are worthy of making the cut (doctors, lawyers, engineers, ect...or coming from a stable or wealthy country). A janitor from Haiti is no less a human than anyone else. Do you not agree?

Is Cover Up The Reason Why Churches Haven't Truly Had Their Own #MeToo Moment??😅

Image
Reader, this is an interesting read👀. Is it time for the church to take hold of sexual sin and drag it kicking and screaming into the light? When a tearful and shaking woman whispers, “me too,” is that our cue to stand up and shout on her behalf, “Never again?”  It's scary to think about the number of pastors who publicly pleaded with young ladies to "save themselves for their husbands" and then sexually assaulted them in private.
