When Church Members Become Free Of Debt They Will Give More To The Church?

The Rev. Clyde D. Talley, the pastor at the Belmont African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church in Worcester,has a long term goal is to get his members out of debt. The pastor  said one of the biggest obstacles to people donating to the church is their debt load. “Without the problem of debt in our congregation, we can focus entirely on the ministry,” Rev. Talley said. “Parishioners will be able to donate more money to the church, and then we will be able to reach out more to help the overall community. That’s our long-term goal.” Article Here!

Jesus Take The Wheel They Are About To Serve Beer In Your Name!

A beer at church will put a new slant on Sunday services. Pastors Calvin Culverwell and Vic Francis are turning Albany Sports Bar into a make-shift church starting this Sunday. Members of the Protestant Albany Shore Vineyard Churches have been working on the project for a year. They aim to help people reconnect with religion in a relaxed place. You can even have a beer during the service - providing you pay for it - and pizza and fries will be provided.

I'm Not A Fan Of Sunday Best!

I'm sorry but I cannot embrace Sunday Best! I've tired but it's not working for me. Christianity is all about service, not personal or corporate advancement.  I cannot and will not embrace anything that produces envy,jealous, and anger within the body of Christ. For me personal I believe that's exactly what this show does. If you do a research on the these two words, competition and comparison you're  be very surprise at just  how they go hand in hand.  I believe this type of competition is not healthy for the body and it disrupts our relationship with God and others.

Sunday Best is one of BET’s highly rated shows which seeks to find America’s next great gospel singer and is hosted by Kirk Franklin alone with judges Donnie McClurkin ,Yolanda Adams , CeCe Winans and Kim Burrell the celebrity mentor/audition judge. The winner this season  will receive a national recording contract with Music World Gospel, a cash prize, and an exclusive prize from Ford. I just don…

Question of The Day: Should Christian Women Read Erotic Fiction ??

Hey everyone, unless you been hiding under a rock most likely you have read or heard of the new book fifty shades of grey by E L James, in which many have dud 'mommy porn.' Fifty Shades of Grey is a erotic fiction trilogy, that is rocking the book industry. Reaching number one on the New York Times Bestseller List and topping it for the last three months (largely by discreet e-book downloads),E L James, the author of the Fifty Shades trilogy of erotic novels, has become the first author to sell more than one million copies via Kindle. Retail analysts said sales of erotic novels for women were booming because electronic devices such as Kindles allow discreet downloading and reading.

I have heard of the book but don't think I'll  be reading it. I cannot understand how someone who claiming to be a Christian  could read it with a clear conscience. It's  a sad commentary on our culture today when books like this is on the New York Times Bestseller list.   I don't …

White Baptist Church Congregation Said No To Black Couple Wedding!

It's a doggone shame that folks with this kinda of hate in their hearts are still around.  It was to be their big day, but a Jackson couple says the church they were planning to wed in turned them away because of race. Now, the couple wants answers, and the church Pastor is questioning the mindset of some of his congregation members who caused the problem in the first place. They had set the date, printed up and mailed out all the invitations, but the day before wedding bells were to ring for Charles and Te'Andrea Wilson, they say they got some bad news from the pastor. "The church congregation had decided no black could be married at that church and that if he went on to marry her, then they would vote him out the church," said Charles Wilson. The Wilson's were trying to get married at the predominantly white First Baptist Church of Crystal Springs. A church they attend regularly, but are not members of. Source Here!

Cities Nationwide Warning Chick-fil-A to Keep Out Over Biblical Marriage Support!

A number of cities and now universities are warning the popular restaurant chain Chick-fil-A to keep out following recent statements made by its president, in which he reiterated his support of Biblical marriage. One of the most outspoken opponents of Chick-fil-A is Boston mayor Thomas Menino, who is working to keep the company from opening a restaurant near the city’s Freedom Trail.

Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy's recent comments against gay marriage has  generate back lash  from various factions.   In addition to Boston mayor Thomas M. Menino's promise to block the Atlanta-based chain from expanding in the city, and the Jim Henson Company pulling its kids' meal toys, seven universities have launched petitions on demanding the removal or prevention of Chick-fil-A franchises on their campuses. The petitions target officials at the University of Illinois, University of Kansas, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, Ball State University, College…

Long Time Pastor And Wife Being Sued!!!

A prominent black Republican pastor who received a "faith award" at a Glenn Beck rally fraudulently transferred his church-owned home to his wife to duck a $75,000 judgment, an accounting firm claims in court. MacFarlane and Associates sued Pleasant Grove Missionary Baptist Church, its longtime pastor C.L. Jackson and his wife, Bettie Jackson, in Harris County Court. "In the last few years, Pastor Jackson has become a nationally recognized public figure," the complaint states. "In 2010, the Houston Chronicle described Pastor Jackson as a 'prominent black pastor and civil rights leader who attended Martin Luther King Jr.'s legendary 'I Have a Dream' speech 48 years ago.'Source Here!

Do Mitt Romney Still Believe The Black Man Is Curse With The "Mark Of Cain"?

Now let me get this right,Mr. "Etch and Sketch" is going to repair the Anglo Saxon relationship with Great Britain,because Obama can't comprehend or grasp it,  because his father was a   African? It's a doggone shame that once again this man will use his belief and up bringing to attack the black man.  From that  statement alone, I'm inclined to believe  Mitt Romney still  believes that black folks are curse with the "mark of Cain" and it's  impossible for Negroes to be on the same level as himself.Article Here!

When You Plan To Attend A Christian Conference or Event Do You Take Into Consideration The Lifestyle of The Speaker Or Musical Artist That Will Be Performing At The Event? I'm Just Asking!!

Some famous gospel pastors/prophets and famous gospel music artists will gather at the Mount Calvary Word of Faith Church during the week of Aug 6-10 to help honor it's founder Pastor Shirley Caesar. It's the 40th Annual Conference of the Shirley Caesar Outreach Ministry were events include seminars, workshops, afternoon worship services and a founder’s banquet on Friday in honor of Pastor Shirley Caesar.

I love, respect, and honor Pastor Shirley Caesar and I love how Shirley Caesar have made such a wonderful contribution to the uplifting  and  building of the kingdom of God with her voice,gift  and talent. But if I were in Raleigh, North Carolina or surrounding area during this particular event, I would run the "HELL" the other way. To me personal I  believe Shirley Caesar staff need to be haul into the office for loading this event with so many folks with questionable lifestyles and to much  extra baggage.

The major problem I have with this event is not the music …

Why Do Some People Wont To Take The Country Backward??

Concerned Women for America have launched She Votes 2012, a grassroots organizing initiative aimed at getting conservative  women to vote in the November election. Penny Nance, president of Concerned Women for America said:
“We need conservatives to turn out in great numbers in order to get legislation passed that will move our great country back to secure footing,” I'am thinking to my self, just how far back in the past do these sisters really wont to go?  I never thought I would live to see the day when Christian folks would actual campagian to go backward. When in reality the word of God in Job 17:9 said:  “The righteous keep moving forward, and those with clean hands become stronger and stronger.” (NLT) Source Here!

SISTERALL 4, October 18 - 21, 2012, Atlanta, Georgia

The SpiritHouse Project calls on Black women to participate in SisterAll 4, the first 21st century National Assembly of Black Women in America. We will gather to understand the explosion of racism today as exhibited by anti-Black violence, racist language and advocacy for unjust laws and public policies by Tea Party members, conservative politicians, and radio and media talk show hosts. No Black person, including the President who is routinely called a monkey, is excluded from these assaults.

 At SisterAll 4, every woman's voice counts and all of our lives matter in a conversation about racism. We are united in our common status as Black women in America. How we unite, analyze, strategize, organize and mobilize form the heart of SisterAll 4 through civic education and public debates. It is imperative that we resume our places as front line warriors, who protect our community today as well as leave our children a world where they are safe, educated, employed and productive comm…

Church Leaders Won't The Government To Vet Churches Before Allowing Them To Operate.

A section of church leaders are calling on the government of Kenya to put in place mechanisms to vet churches before allowing them to operate. The clerics under the auspices of Interdenominational Gospel Association says lack of proper registration mechanism, has led to the mushrooming of backstreet churches that have turned out to be extortion cartels.

Joe Paterno Tried To Protect The Evil Deeds Of One Man And Lost!

This is a doggone shame that what was once one of the greatest legacies in college football has been destroyed because of ego and turning an eye to evil.  When our ego is on the line, we have a tendency to put a positive spin on things while ignoring all evidence to the contrary. The danger is, over time we lose sight of what’s actually happening around us and the end results can be crushing.

  A statue honouring Penn State football head coach Joe Paterno has been torn down as the university bows to massive public outcry. Penn State ordered the removal of the statue of Hall of Fame coach early on Sunday morning. Workers lifted the statue off its base and used a forklift to move it into Beaver Stadium early Saturday as the 100 to 150 students watching chanted, 'We are Penn State.'

Sex in the City, Part II The Black Man’s Kryptonite: The Booty

Let me tell you something, most men have struggled or do struggle (shoot some don’t even “struggle” at all because they see it as second nature) with lust. For those of you who haven’t or don’t, God bless you, but this aint for you. This isn’t just an issue that men who don’t have a relationship with Jesus struggle with. I have seen saved men struggle with the same syndrome that many unsaved men struggle with on a daily basis. While many unsaved men are “afforded the opportunity” to look without their conscious convicting them, saved men have to carry around guilt for failing yet another test when an attractive woman walks by them. I have been saved for over a decade and it even took me some time to get over the syndrome. What syndrome is that? I call it the “domino” syndrome, the “head turning” syndrome, or the “daaaaaaaannnnnnng, look at that butt” syndrome. The above piece is from Brother Preacher blog . To tell you the truth this posting  has got to be one of my favor reads in a …

AMBER ALERT:Ms.Katherine Jackson Is Missing.

Katherine Jackson, 82, was officially reported missing Saturday night by a concerned family member amid a dispute over the estate of her superstar son. She is the guardian of his three minor children, Paris, Prince Michael and Blanket Jackson. But our go to man  Roland Martin is reporting that the rumors are not true.

Is God The Author and Creator Of Evil??

My heart felt prayers go out to every person who was or is affected in any kinda of way by the tragic that took place Friday morning in Colorado after a  gunman open fire at a crowded movie premier and  killed a number of people.

When things like what happen Friday take place people love to point fingers and ask questions. Pastor Rick Warren came under fire for the tweet posted below after the tragic. I think I understand what the pastor meant by the tweet even if some don't. One of the most common reasons people use for rejecting God and the existence of God is due to the presence of evil in the world today.  They can't understand how a perfect loving God would create a universe in which evil exists. Some claim that since God created everything that God must have also created evil. Some people use these Bible verses to say God created evil:(Isaiah 45:7, KJV)(Amos 3:6, KJV) (Lamentations 3:38)
I for one don't believe evil to be a created thing so there's no way I can …

Who Put The Brakes On The First Lady?

Remember Centino Kemp, the fifth young man who had accused Bishop  Long of wrong doing and had threatened to publish a book about his relationship with the bishop and how he saw himself as the other "First Lady?" Well that particular book will no longer be forth coming. That's according to Centino Kemp,the book deal is dead. Mr. Kemp tweeted Monday that he has closed that chapter of his life and he's moving on.  This rightly could be the reason for him canning the book deal but, one got to wonder if the bishop legal team didn't help him to see that a book deal might not be a good idea.
@CentinoKemp: For people who have been asking about #fisrtlady and when its coming out the answer is never I ended that part of my life on to the next.

Today's Gospel Music World Is Being Rock By Scandal After Scandal!

I'm some what shock that I'am finding my self standing  in agreement with Pastor G.Craig Lewis with his calling out the so-call gospel music industrial for what they really are, a bunch of FAKE fraudulent and misleading bunch of folks.  I tried very hard to keep an open mind when it come to the gospel music industrial  but, it ain't working! Everyday second,minute,week,month and year someone in the gospel music industrial is being exposed or lied on depending on who the artist is and who doing the exposing/lying.

I found a comment that had been posted under a article over here concerning  Earnest Pugh, and I find  it to be some what troubling for me. It seems to me that some folks have developed  such a strong love for some of today's  gospel music artists that they will go out of their way to prove  accusations against them are not true, simply because it had occurred in the past. But,truth is truth, rather past or present you can not change truth.

Preserving The Late Bishop J.O. Patterson Sr legacy!

The late Bishop J.O. Patterson Sr,is one of the most important American religious figures of the 20th Century and he doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page. There’s no monument, memorial or historic marker to the man who molded the world’s largest Pentecostal denomination, not in Derma, Miss., where he was born, not in Memphis where he based his lifelong ministry. His widower Mary Patterson is hoping to change that by getting more people interest in her late husband’s legacy and by doing so she hope she can preserve it. Source Here!

Young Kyle Glover Have Pass From Time To Eternity,Where Time No Longer Exist.

Praying for his family! Just a reminder, let us enjoy the people God have given to us because one day He will require them back.

You can hear the Gospel preached and discussed in a lot of places. But if you want to witness the Gospel with all of its power to proclaim hope amidst the horror of sin and death, perhaps that message is most clear when it is spoken amidst the pain and sorrow of a funeral.  RIP little Kyle!

I Applaud Meek Mills For Taking The High Road, No Pride Found!

While on 106 and Park the other day, Meek Mill apologized and regret at having caused trouble for anyone who was offended by his latest single, “Amen.”
“People find all types of stuff offensive. I don’t think no preacher or no church approves of any type of rap music — because rap music, period, is a lot of bad stuff said,” the MMG rapper said. “But at the end of the day, it’s real life. And me, I wasn’t trying to disrespect no religion or anything like that. My whole family is Christian. I have a half Christian, half Muslim family, the situation, the song, that’s what energy it felt and if anybody feel disrespected, I ain’t do it in that way…I did it just because it was a good feeling — that’s the feeling it gave me so I said, ‘Amen, church.’ I didn’t do it with bad intentions at the end of the day.” Pastor Jomo K. Johnson responds to his apology below.
This apology was the condition for lifting the Call-To-Action boycott. Therefore, I want to say as a follower of Christ, that I com…

What In The World Could Be The Cause For The Rapid Rise Of "NONE" In A Christian Nation??

Unbelief is on the uptick. People who check "None" for their religious affiliation are now nearly one in five Americans (19%), the highest ever documented, according to the Pew Center for the People and the Press. Source Here! The rapid rise of "NONE" — including atheists, agnostics and those who say they believe "nothing in particular" — defies the usually glacial rate of change in spiritual identity. What I find  interesting  about the survey is it has gone up by almost 25%...15-19% in just 2 years.

 I personal believe the high profile evangelists have influenced the trend  of "NONE"  the most and they have also contribute highly to the huge growth in "NONE", mostly because of the high negatives associated with the present day church. Take for example the Catholic Church dealing with pedophile scandal, the Evangelical Church dealing with scamming the public, you got the Protestant Church dealing with it sex scandals.

How Do You Handle The Plan of God When It Include The Killing Of Our Love Ones At The Hand Or Hate??

I wasn't going to say anything about what George Zimmerman said the other night on the low life hannity show. But,the more I read and see how this guy is prospering off the killing of this young man the angrier I become.  This guy pulled a 9mm gun, shot and kill a unarmed minding his own business young man,then have the nerve to say it was God plan. And then to top it off go on this show and say to the parents he had no regrets about ending the life of their child. No regrets at all. None about getting out of his car, none about having a gun,none about shooting an unarmed teenager with one bullet to the chest. Saying all this was God plan is a bunch of bull. I agree with Trayvon’s father, “We must worship a different God, because there’s no way MY God would have wanted George Zimmerman to murder my teenage son.”Most of the written commentary here is from this guy post. Great piece!

Is The Bahamas Christian Council Being A Bit Hypocritical In Allowing Bishop Eddie Long Into The Country??

Is the Bahamas Christian Council being a bit hypocritical in allowing Eddie Long to hold his conference in the Bahamas? Some folks in the Bahamas think so and is questioning why the Bahamas  Christian Council  are  allowing Bishop Eddie Long in to the country without hesitation and any fussing or protesting but, will  kick up dust when rap/reggae artists come to the shores because of their lyrics.

Our Prayers Go Out To Rev. Jerome McNeil Family!

Rev Jerome McNeil tragically shocked his congregation last Sunday after he fatally collapsed moments after delivering an animated sermon. The church's senior pastor of the last 21 years collapsed moments after delivering his sermon to a packed sanctuary last Sunday whose membership totals 6,000. Exiting his pulpit, he passed a plaque reading: 'Preach as never to preach again. As a dying man to dying men' - a quote by the 16th century English church leader Richard Baxter. How sad!

Michael Vick~Finally Free!

God said, “I will turn their mourning into joy. I will comfort them and exchange their sorrow for rejoicing.” Michael Vick is an example and proof,that if we ask God He will and can transform our past from pain and give it meaning. He can help us to look back with gratitude, then forward with confidence.  Michael Vick is a prime example of God transforming power.

  Michael Vick is planning to release a new controversial 304-page book in September 2012 called "Finally Free". The autobiography is a memoir that he wrote after serving nearly two years in prison for running a dog-fighting ring. During that time, he nearly ruined his football career, but has recovered since.

Side Eye Post Of The Day:First Lady Sheree Fletcher!

First Lady Sheree Fletcher stars on the new reality TV show “Hollywood Exes” on VH1, but she also is First Lady of the City of Hope International. Sheree explains on the show that because her husband was called to pastor in San Diego and her life is in Los Angeles that they usually see each other on the weekend. 

Question: How can this lady effectively fulfill her role as pastor wife,help mate or have a good relationship  with the church if she's not in the home or church until the weekend? Unfortunately this kinda of leadership in the church today is becoming the norm.

Parents Allow Child To Switch Gender.

The parents in question are Sarah and Yuri Brown, who have cut their daughter's hair,  changed her name from Sophie to Jake.  And to top it off, they have  asked teachers, friends, family and their church to treat their daughter as their son.

Sarah and Yuri Brown believe Jake, now five, is a little boy trapped in a girl’s body — the youngest-ever case of its kind. By the time she was two, Sophie was repeatedly insisting to his parents: “I really am a boy”. By four she refused to wear dresses. Source Here!
