Jesus Take The Wheel: Prophet Brian Carn Says Laymen Do Not Have The Authority To Correct A Prophet??? In Other Words Keep Your Mouth Closed!

I thought this was very interesting.

Jesus Take The Wheel: Church Going Men Would Appreciate Less Cleavage in Church Too, You Don't Say!

I like this article!  Women and their "cleavage" is somewhat of a hot topic among some within the Christian community this week.  The question being ask Is this a problem among christian women (or so called christian women)?  This young lady have called out ‘MATURE BELIEVERS' who claim to be ‘BORN-AGAIN, BAPTIZED, BLOOD-BOUGHT' TONGUE-TALKING members of the Christian Church!

Heartbreaking: Conservative Black Chick Crystal Wright Attack Trayvon Martin Mom!

This is sad on so many levels,  out of all the articles and comments surrounding this incident....this for me has got to be the worst.  I believe it to be the first to attack the mother for loving her child.  If anybody out there still wondering why black Americans have no desire to  be part of the GOP or Conservatism......well look no further than this chick right here.  It amaze me the things some folks will say in politics to get attention.  In my "PERSONALLY" opinion  this chick went way too far! Ms. Wright could have made her point  without even mentioning Trayvon's mother - that was totally unnecessary.

Did A Religion Based In Homophobia Caused This Man To Abandoned His Wife And 5 Kids?

Lord have mercy, how in the world can anyone do this to their family and live with themself  afterward? This man handling of this situation was to the extreme to say the least. 

Eric Myers says he first realized he was gay at age six, but it took running out on his wife and kids and faking his own death to finally allow him to admit it. I guess when all else fail blame the church.

Jesus Take The Wheel: Abortion Contract' Surfaces Between Christian NBA Player JJ Redick and Vanessa Lopez!

The latest buzz coming out of the Christian Community is surrounding Christian NBA player J.J. Redick.....who reportedly had an “abortion contract” with his now ex-girlfriend, Vanessa Lopez.

Is Chante`Moore New Song "Jesus I Want You" Too Erotic To Be About A Holy God?

I hate Jesus is my "BOYFRIEND" kind of songs. And for the record, I'm well aware that some folks who visit or stumble upon this blog may not like what I say and others might say I have "ISSUES" when it come to certain things within the Christian Community. You know what?  That just may well be true but guess what? It's my opinion!  One of my issue or struggle as some may call it is with the idea of calling Jesus beautiful beyond description as if He was a lover("Jesus I Want You").

"Another bootleg preacher who sings and has made millions from us. We may need to revamp this thing and try to wean out the counterfeit preachers, pastors, evangelist, bishops and vocal artist who think its cool to use a law to get someone off for murder. We may be headed in the wrong direction. God may be trying to tell us something through his words. It's clear he stands for nothing but his pocket."
"Coming from a Pastor why would you state a Negative Status? I took this as being very Condescending."
"Really sad comment and I hve a lot of respect for you!! We are always letting others push us over!! I dnt care why folks are jumping on the wagon just as long as they are on and you should be to!!"MORE HERE!  In the wake of George Zimmerman‘s acquittal for the shooting and murder of 17 yea…

A Big Ole Church Mess: Members Of Charlotte Church Protest Pastor’s Leadership!

Tensions ran high at a north Charlotte church Sunday morning as members protested Pastor Andrew Rollinson’s leadership, saying he was fired nearly three months ago but refuses to leave.

 “Rollinson must go!” about a dozen people chanted outside Morningstar Baptist Church at 5623 Phillips St., off West Sugar Creek Road in the Derita area. “When? Today!” Rollinson said he has no intention of leaving the church. He said the members who fired him did not follow church bylaws, and therefore the decision is invalid.

Sunday Best Is The Boasting Evil Spirit Of Competition!

I'ma say it one more time, shows like Sunday Best should not be accepted  supported or embraced by the Christian community. The spirit of competition among Christians should be frown upon by all.

The spirit of competition is the dominant spirit of this world. It's the spirit that force men to feel superior to others  while at the same time striving to be “better” than others.

Anyway Gospel recording artist Lisa Page Brooks and husband-producer-songwriter Michael Brooks of Commissioned......daughter Tasha Page Lockharts appearance tonight on BET's Sunday's Best have caused some on social media to question whether this is fair to the othercontestants?

Rumor has it that the wonderful singer Tasha Page Lockhart was/or is part of the dynamic singing gospel group witness. If this is true then I definitely think it's  an unfair advantage to the other contestants. What do you think?

In The Black Church Community Being A Pallbearer Is Considered An Honor!

In the traditional Black Church community it's consider an honor to be ask to be a pallbearer by friends and/or family of the deceased.  I was not aware that some pallbearers have to do this as a job that's frown upon.

Lima's peculiar tradition of preferring black pallbearers harkens back to slave traditions and points to current racism and discrimination. WOW!

Jesus Take The Wheel: Meagan Good Is Rebelling Against Her Conservative Husband And The Christian Church Community With Her Latest Shenanigan,Loud Purple Hair???

Lord have mercy, Meagan Good latest shenanigan comes in the form of loud purple hair, of which she shared with fans and followers on her Instagram page.   In my personally opinion and judging "SOLELY" by and "FROM" 1st lady  Meagan Good  latest shenanigan, this young lady is in a state of "REBELLION".

 Meagan Good has joined the club of celebrities who sends strong messages when they make drastic changes to their hairstyles and dress. 1st lady Meagan has shaved off half of her hair on one side of her head much like the secular world is doing and has also dyed it a loud shade of purple.

 In my personally opinion the message Megan is sending is one loud and clear and it's main aim is to her critics and haters within the "Christian Community":
  Just because I'm married to a conservative preacher/ pastor/ teacher don't mean a darn thing to me.....I don't have to look like your version of a conservative preacher/pastor/teacher wife …
