Charlamange The God And The Handling of Scripture.

Image
Reader Ernest Cleo Grant II a contributing writer for "The Witness," a Black Christian Collective wrote an interesting article on Lenard McKelvey, or Charlamange the God misrepresentation of the Scripture. This is a well written article.  The fact that Charlamange is inaccurate most of the time when he handle Scriptures, what I love is this- he is a person of influence, largely to an audience that will never step inside of a church. 
he's obviously searching for Truth and answers surrounding Christianity and culture, so he doesn't shy away from talking about spiritual things- I think he is very much conflicted within himself about what to really believe.

Good read. Charlamange and the Handling of Scripture

Reader check out the new Instagram message from the Gray family: 

Do Children Belong In The Main Sanctuary??

Image
Reader there is a movement in many churches today to always have children separated from adults. Although children should have a children’s church where they can learn and worship God, they also need to regularly be in the main service with the rest of the church body.

Do you agree??

Why did someone who got caught on tape brutally knocking his then-fiancée unconscious give a talk at a Christian University?

Image
Reader what does a former abuser talk about at a Christian college? Repentance. Former NFL star Ray Rice spoke to Liberty University students last week about domestic violence, addressing the 2014 video of him beating and dragging his then-fiancée out of an elevator. On February 3, 2013, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was riding high. That was the day he helped his team win the Super Bowl in a historic game against the San Francisco 49ers. But just one year later, Rice hit rock bottom after being caught on camera brutally knocking his then-fiancée unconscious in the elevator of an Atlantic City casino.

Church Announcement: Pastor Jamal Bryant To Alabama Voters, Y'all Cannot Let Roy Moore Get Elected.

Image
Reader according to PastorJamalBryant Alabama voters cannot let allege child predator Roy Moore get elected. For much of the rest of the country, Alabama’s Senate race hinges on whether voters will elect an accused predator of young women — Republican Roy Moore. But many African-Americans in this state are less concerned with Moore’s sexual misconduct, which he denies, and more with countering a former judge they think is bent on returning the state to its segregationist past. The world is watching ....spread the word.

Is Denying The Trinity A Salvation Issue?

Image
Reader, can you become a Christian if you deny the Trinity? Do you have to understand God's nature in order to be saved? If you don’t believe in the Trinity, then do that mean you don’t understand who God is?

I saw this on my timeline earlier in the week. The Vigilant Christian Steven Bancarz sat down with Marcus Rogers, a Oneness Pentecostal, to debate the topic of the Trinity and demonstrate why denying the true nature of Jesus Christ can be a salvation issue. Some say that they are glad people are standing up for the Trinity. And that this oneness stuff is how people like Bishop Jakes have managed to mislead entire congregations.

Dr.Juanita Bynum Has An Online Meltdown Because Facebook Took Down One Of Her Videos.

Image
Reader let us pray for our sister Prophetess Juanita Bynum, I'm for real. She's like sobbing throughout the video. Juanita is a veteran in ministry. I'm not saying that the load of ministry can’t get overwhelming, but feeling rejected from a secular community shouldn’t get this response from her. I hear deep pain in her voice. I listened to and watch the below video and don't know what to say. Apparently Facebook took one of her videos down and this is her response. It makes me sad to see her this way. It appears as though she is adopting the vegan lifestyle and she feels the devil is trying to stifle her message of healthy eating.

Let's pray for her. 

(This is the video Facebook took down)

Trump Promised The White Evangelicals He Would Do This.

Image
Reader whether you “believe” in it or not but is there anyone reading this versed in end-time prophecies? Especially the role that the events in the Middle East/Israel play in the whole deal? It’s kind of funny that after 8 years of hearing white evangelicals claiming President Obama was the anti-Christ, here 45 is about to move the US Embassy to Israel.
The white evangelical leaders must have added this to their wish list when they negotiated with Trump to give him their valuable voting bloc loyalty. They think it will hasten Armageddon, the war to end all wars, and then shall the end come. They are using Trump, he is using them, and Israel is using them both, and they'll all get the war they want so badly. IJS! (Facebook)

Who In The Hell Left The Gate Open? Roy Moore Visited A Black Church?

Image
Reader I cannot believe Roy Moore had the nerve to accept an invitation to visited a black church on Sunday. Who in the hell left the gate open and let in a foul stink like Moore? There's a reason why predators visit our churches so much. People who are as humble as a lamb make great sitting ducks.  This pastor should be fired for this foolishness.  This just goes to show that most blacks churchgoers worship the ministers, why would a black pastor have someone come to speak to the congregation and that person doesn’t have the pew sitters best interest in mind?

http://www.al.com/news/index.ssf/2017/12/roy_moore_speaks_at_a_black_ch.html


Bishop Jim Lowe, of Guiding Light Church, thanked Moore for accepting his invitation and applauded the former judge for his conservative values, including his 2003 fighting to keep a Ten Commandments monument posted at a state building. “The law said he should remove them. He said, ‘no, this is the word of God.’ He wouldn’t support same-sex marriage. …

Skimpy Dressing Worship Leaders!!!

Image
Reader, I found this on my timeline tell me what y'all think, is it inappropriate wear for a worship leader?  "Vicky Yohe at Paula White's church (fleecing center) this morning. She forgot the rest of her dress while she leads "worship".


Y'all remember during the summer in a viral video, Dr. Juanita Bynum addressed the issue of how the women of God in this hour doesn’t want to put on clothes and by dressing inappropriately draws attention to oneself. 

"I can’t even get to the concept of somebody preaching and leading praise and worship with no stocking on. With thongy, stringy shoes on with your legs all greased up. What kind of message are you trying to send us? Because to me, that looks like somebody that got a spirit”

‪So Franklin Graham Has Confused Christianity With White Supremacy?!?!?!

Image
People of faith Y'all need to speak up whether you like it or not and START speaking out against your Evangelical brethren when they’re WRONG.

Should we confront offender's and how many have the courage to do it?

Image
Y'all this young sister outs the man who molested her at age six at a family funeral. Out of death can come life. Parental discretion is advised. I'm sharing this and I hope this continue to stay viral in case something happens to this young sister. This is what happens when families push their mess under the rug and protect fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers and cousins who molest children. Yes, it's horrific to watch your assailant sit there with no remorse on their faces. Mothers who believe their boyfriends and husband instead of their children. This is what happens when children are not allowed to heal. When will adults especially the black family start protecting our children?

Referring to a passage in Leviticus 19:28, Lentz said it’s important to hold a balanced view of the Old Testament moral code, neither dismissing it out-of-hand, nor holding to every, single instruction.

The Praying Grandmother Still Exist!!

Image
Reader do you or did you have a praying grandmother? I remember years ago when I first heard this song or testimony it made me think back to my own grandmother. I read somewhere that Chance the Rapper had turned into a mess when his grandmother marched him in and prayed a prayer that left him wondering if it was a blessing or a curse. It seems that Chance popularity was spiking as a young hip-hop artist, but his grandma was not impressed.
