Some In The Christian Community Are Upset That Tonéx Have Announced A Comeback To Gospel Concert! Is That Good?

According to "The Gospel Guru" Tonéx‘s back and ready to blaze the gospel stage.  The 38 year old megastar has announced that he'll be performing at his first concert under the Tonéx moniker in 10 years at the historic Howard Theatre in DC on September 15th at 1PM.

Of course everyone not please to hear that the prodigal son is returning to his gospel roots .(read the comments here)  Some church folks are crying shame on  the church for not covering and encouraging Tonéx in love while he was going through his hurt. Others are saying he's still lost and he need  to chose today.

I agree we all have fallen short and at one time or another turned our backs on God. But through it all God never turned his back on us. I believe Anthony Williams, aka Tonéx / B.SLADE is one of the most talented singers out there now. If he wants to do a gospel concert...then more power to him.

Young Prophet Manasseh Jordan Said Touch His Hands And Receive Blessing In Jesus Name.

We Christians use many scriptures out of context.  The principle of touching and agreeing has absolutely NOTHING at all to do with one's healing or one's financial situation. Young Prophet  Manasseh Jordan has instructed his Facebook followers and friends to touch and agree for their blessing.
 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 18:19 KJV) I want you right now to touch and agree! Touch my hands so we can agree for your blessing! As you touch my hands with your hands and ask the father for you blessing so shall it be!

Beginning With The 2014 Tax Season IRS Says Same-Sex Couples Can File Joint Returns!!!

According to the IRS beginning with the 2014 tax filing season any same-sex couples possessing a marriage license from any U.S. state that allows same-sex marriage can file joint federal tax return. This is following up on the Supreme Court’s ruling in June striking down a key section of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act.

Starting with the 2014 tax filing season, the IRS will use a “state of celebration” standard for recognizing same-sex marriages. Couples can file joint federal tax returns even if they move to states that do not permit same-sex marriages — although they may have to file their state tax returns as if they were not married, depending on state laws. Same-sex couples may also file amended tax returns for 2010, 2011 and 2012. Source Here!

Jesus Take The Wheel: Man Fired For Not Working On The Sabbath??!?!

Todays job market is extremely tight.  So how does one go about getting every Sabbath off from his/her job? Especially when the job calls for Saturday/Sunday work? What if your employer refuses to accommodate you?

The chain store Dollar General is being sued for firing a manager who refused to work on the Sabbath because he is a Seventh-Day Adventist.
The man claimed that he had stated on his July 2010 application for a manager position at the Dollar General in Sicklerville, N.J., that he "would never be available to work from sunset on Fridays to sunset on Saturdays" because his religion required him to observe the Sabbath. Source!

I really have some mix feeling about this. I know  people have to work on Saturday/Sunday, because I do. I'm thinking if you don't  want to work on Saturday/Sunday then you should get a job where it is NOT required.

Should The Christian Church Used Their Non-profit Resources, Material, Equipment And Non-profit Employees To Promote The Evils Of The Secular World?

The current economic difficulties have made it hard for a lot of non-profit  organizations to make ends meet. Some say a nonprofit is no different than any other business in that you must make ends meet at the end of the day or otherwise your charity will cease to exist.

 But the question that's being thrown around on social media is should non-profit organizations used their materials, resources and equipment to promote the "ungodly" ways of the secular world? We've all  seen some of those disgusting night club flyers that can make you sick on the inside.

 I stumble upon this article today while doing research for another article. I'm surprise at the things that's taking place in some mega churches far as business goes, that's completely hidden from people who give willingly to them.

According to the article the Jimmy Swaggart Ministries is a registered non-profit organization with its own print shop that is responsible for the printing of ministry mate…

According to five preachers from the Atlanta area  are claiming Saturday night they were kicked of the renowned Atlanta city night spot ‘Magic City’ after attempting to pass out biblical materials to customers.

Jesus Take The Wheel: Another Pastor Accused Of Adultery COZA’s Senior Pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo!?!?!??!

This is a doggone shame! This sister is telling it all. This controversial article has become a trending item on the social media with many crucifying the pastor while others faulting the girl for giving into a man of God ‘free-of-charge.’

 All I can say is another man of God is being dethrone because of the spirit of lust.  I am shaking my head at this story. As it is being told by the lady in the  above pic  who goes by the name Ese Walter.

 In the piece by Ms. Ese Walter, she alleged that she was seduced by her pastor and she admitted to having an affair with him. Ms. Ese stated that she has since been plagued with guilt and an extremely heavy heart as she constantly sees her pastor preaching. This  will  leave you wondering what in the world is going on in the house of God?

Jesus Take The Wheel: Bishop Paul S. Morton Sr, And Bishop Joseph Walker III, Are About To Do Damage Control In Nashville Sunday!

From the look of the above flyer it looks like this is a last ditch effort by someone at damage control.  According to the Presiding Bishop of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship "twitter page" it's going down this Sunday morning at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Nashville.

Some folks are suggesting with Bishop Neil Ellis walking away from the Full Gospel Organization, and taking a whopping 18 churches with him is  serious business. And if Bishop Paul S. Morton wants  to save his organization and reputation than he need to do something quickly or he'll be going down a disgrace.

Rapper Prove That The Spirit Of Bragging & Boasting Will Get You Every Time!

When I read about the Brooklyn Rapper’s Instagram post which lead to the largest gun bust in NYC history. I automatically thought about all the years that  I've taught and warned my Sunday School class concerning the spirit of bragging and boasting. The Lord wants us to boast and to brag!  BUT "HE" forbids us, however, to boast and brag about "OURSELVES."

Brooklyn rapper, Matthew Best, took to his Instagram and posted pictures of guns and cash, leading the NYPD to make the largest gun bust in New York City history, reports the NY Daily News.

 Best was bragging about selling guns on the social networking site, when narcotic investigators spotted his posts and passed the information along to an undercover officer, who then became aware of the man behind a multi-state gun smuggling ring.

Don't get me wrong Best is no different than a lot of us.....everyone wants "to be something or somebody of importance that others notice and appreciate. But, you'll…

Jesus Take The Wheel: Measles Scare At Kenneth Copeland Megachurch!

Measles is rarely fatal in children, but can be very dangerous for adults. A case of measles has been linked to a megachurch in northern Tarrant County where a congregant recently traveled overseas. Pastor Terri Copeland Pearsons delivered the news via sermon last Wednesday:

"There has been a ... confirmed case of the measles from the Tarrant County Public Health Department. And that is a really big deal in that America, the United States has been essentially measles free for I think it's 10 years. And so when measles pops up anywhere else in the United States, the health department -- well, you know, it excites them. You know what I mean I don't mean. I don't mean they're happy about it, but they get very excited and respond to it because it doesn't take much for things like that to spread."

Eagle Mountain International Church, is about 50  miles northwest of Dallas. Pearsons is the eldest daughter of mega pastor Kenneth Copeland, and her church Eagle Mo…

Would You Show Your Appreciation To Your Pastor On His Big Day With A Gift Like This???? NO WAY!

I found the above and below pics posted on a young lady Facebook page
earlier today. The young lady followers & friends were discussing the upcoming October "Pastor Appreciation Day" for their which the young adult dept. would be given the chance to present their love gift to the pastor.

For those who don't know October is considered "Pastor Appreciation month" for many churches.  This is the month that has been set aside by the church to show appreciation to the pastor for his love and ministry over the past year.  It's doing this time of the year when most pastors receive an  abundance of monies that the IRS don't know anything about.

The church might take up a love offering for their pastor on that day. Many churches put a basket in the vestibule for members and visitors to place cards in with kind sentiments they want to share with the pastor.
Back in the day some churches would even have a dinner or a reception, a nice time to ge…

Church Of Christ Church In Tennessee Bans Family After Daughter Wins Same Sex Benefits From Town!

Get out of here!!! What a great "example" to the rest of the congregation....  60 years of faithful dedication and services to a church down the drain. This is unbelievable! 

  After 60 years of attending a Tennessee church, a family in Collegedale has been exiled because they supported their daughter while she fought for same sex benefits from the town where she worked as a police detective. Earlier this month, Collegedale became the first city in Tennessee to offer same sex benefits after Detective Kat Cooper was initially denied health benefits for her wife, Krista. The couple was married in Maryland earlier this year. Update!

Bishop Eddie Long And The New Birth Missionary Baptist Church Is Still Reaching and Fighting For The Kingdom Of God!

Two of the greatest evangelistic tools known to mankind is death and one's own testimony. I'm believing that the sudden death of the Creekside High School football player who died in a scrimmage game Friday night was weighing heavy on these young men heart and mind.

According to AJC.COM.  De’Antre Turman, an 11th grader and cornerback for the Seminoles, died after being hurt on the Banneker High School field in College Park, the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office confirmed on Saturday.  Turman, 16, died of a broken neck later Friday night at Grady Memorial Hospital. The Medical Examiner’s Office said Turman’s death resulted from his neck vertebrae being broken “due to blunt force trauma.”

 According to the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church Facebook page. Today was one of  the greatest and the biggest move of God for their ministry.  They ask their facebook friends and followers one beautiful question: Do you believe God can save a football team? If not here's your …

HIV Patients Told By Pentecostal Pastors 'To Rely On God'????

The BBC is reporting that some young HIV patients are giving up their medicine after being told by Pentecostal Church pastors to rely on faith in God instead, doctors warn.

 Medical staff told the BBC a minority of pastors in England were endangering young church members by putting them under pressure to stop medication. Healing is central to Pentecostalism, a radical belief in the power of prayer and miracles. But one pastor denied people would ever be told to stop taking their medicine.

The Bible Says Children Are A Blessing From "GOD" But Time Magazine Asks: Who Needs Kids, Anyway?

There seems to be some mumbling and grumbling coming from the net surrounding  the Time Magazine August cover story.  Some Christians  are upset and  terribly concerned that selfish Time Magazine might be trying to encourage  a new generation not to have children. (NOTE) This article is not aboutABORTIONS! 

Some say God’s original design calls for women to be life-givers and for marriage to bear children. But the Time Magazine article seems to be pushing against that idea.

Now for me I'm more curious about the Christian couple who have refused and who have made the conscious decision NOT to ever have children! WHY? That I don't understand!

 I'm not asking nor am I questioning couples whose wombs God has chosen to close they can't have children that's understandable. I'm thinking more about how a Christian couple can have a solid grasp in Bible teaching and still be able to KNOW you don't want to have kids?

 How is that possible? I asking because Time Maga…
