Home Going Services, For Archbishop (DR.) David Huskins!

Today the "Homegoing services" for Archbishop David Huskins were held at the Cedar Lake Christian Center (CLCC) in Cedar town, Georgia among a standing room only crowd. Archbishop Huskins, an Atlanta-area pastor who led a network of charismatic churches was found dead at his home Monday of what sources say was a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Bishop David Huskins had acknowledged suffering from heart-related health problems and recently talked about taking time off. The above pic was posted to social media with the following heartfelt caption:

We could have filled it up a 1000 times and still not been able to accommodate all the lives you touched!   Archbishop Huskins, a father, pastor, prophet and apostle and above all else, Archbishop Huskins was a servant of God. He was a true apostle from God who carried a prophetic mantle. He served as the presiding bishop of the International Communion of Charismatic Churches (ICCC) and Internat…

Church Announcement: Alleged, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome's Wife, Anita Files For Divorce In The UK Over Adultery.

Some, Nigerians are highly upset about the latest news and rumors surrounding their spiritual leaders.  Nigeria’s most powerful Christian couple has gone public about their marriage and, have decided to call it quits. The leaders of Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and Rev. Anita Oyakhilome are regarded as two of the richest and most influential pastors in Nigeria.

 Pastor Oyakhilome and his wife, co-author one of the fastest-selling Christian daily devotional, Rhapsody of Realities. According to online reports, the dissolution of the marriage between the two has entered the final messy phase. The wife is seeking a divorce on the grounds of “unreasonable behavior” and “adultery”.

Question Of The Day: Should Long Time Girl Friend Loretta Ask Bishop Noel Jones To Marry Her?

According to Sister2Sister, Bishop Noel Jones received a shock during the “Preachers of L.A.” after the show when his longtime “friend” Loretta Jones expressed her true feelings about their relationship. Loretta told Noel while co-stars Ron and Lavette Gibson looked on.
“I’m happy the way things are, but if he proposes to me, I will accept.” I, know times have changed, but there are some issues that are definitely not up for compromise. Now, in my honest opinion Loretta should not have to propose to Noel Jones.... and if she is ever forced to go down on one knee like the sister done in a picture,  that was posted and went viral last month online, then Bishop Jones doesn't deserve her.

So the question that's being thrown around on social media, should Loretta ask Bishop Jones to marry her?

Lord Have Mercy Man Arrested For Acting A Fool Inside Lakewood Church Bookstore!

According to KHOU11 News, a man was taken into custody yesterday after going on an odd rampage inside the bookstore at Lakewood Church. Police said the 30-year-old suspect, Michael David Fletcher walked into the bookstore around 9:15 a.m. and began knocking some books off the shelves, throwing books and overturning display stands all while referring to Bible verse Matthew 21:12:
 Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves.   Security personnel escorted the man out of the store, and when he attempted to get back inside, they held him down for police, a Lakewood church spokesperson said. No one was injured.

Posted below is a comment I found on Pastor Crouch, Facebook page that stood out to me, it's somewhat bothersome to say the least.  Why in the world would anyone take this time to promote "TB Joshua, Anointing Water"?

According To Victoria Osteen: "When you worship (and obey) God, we're not doing it for God, we're doing it for ourself, because that's what makes God happy"??

Seriously, Victoria Osteen, I don't know what to say after watching this clip.   This is just the sort of stuff that gets the church so confused. These folks are successful, they look good, they sound good, they have a huge church and following...... But that doesn't make them right.
 Victoria Osteen Do good for your own self? Do what makes you happy? Come to church for yourself and not God? That makes God happy? Wow!"When you worship (and obey) God, we're not doing it for God, we're doing it for ourself, because that's what makes God happy!" AMEN!  Somebody help me up off the floor.

FBI Files Link Christian Televangelist To Mafia, Gun Running, Narcotics, White Supremacism!

"The FBI file also states that 'Paul Crouch, along with Reverend Earl Paulk and Oral Roberts were anti-Semitic and white supremacists. Crouch and the others have supposedly received funds from the PLO to 'run guns.''"Source:

Got Questions: Is It Possible To Sell Your Soul To The Devil?

"Got Questions Ministries", have posed yet another thought provoking question: "Is it possible to sell your soul to the devil?" I've stated on this blog in time past, that the idea of anyone being able to sell their soul is a lie straight from the devil. How can you sell something that you don't have ownership of? In reality, ALL SOULS BELONGS TO GOD.

Whether you or I, believe in Jesus sacrifice or not, one thing will be true always and forever... Our soul was bought at a price, and that price was the precious blood of Jesus Christ.  Great question!

Are The Children The Reason For Deitrick Haddon To Say His One Year Marriage Have Been More Successful Than His Previous Fourteen Year Marriage?

Talk about messy, this should have never came out of Deitrick Haddon mouth. The idea of him saying that just one year after his marriage to his current wife, Domonique, has been “more successful” than the 14 years he spent with Damita, is just down right nasty. In the interview he kept mentioning his kids, it's alleged that his first wife could not have kids she had some painful miscarriages, if that is true, what a  CHEAP SHOT. And,  just to think ex wife Damita  gave this fool 14 long years of her blood, sweat, and tears, her body, soul, and mind, and he has the nerve to say that. Low blow!

Question Of The Day: Should Floyd Mayweather Be Made Fun Of To This Extent?

Lord have mercy, many have no problem mocking others.  Rather, a person is an unbeliever or a believer, mockery have the same effect, it's painful to the person being mocked. It's a form of contempt and it's wrong, no matter how many laughs one might get. We all can agree that Floyd Mayweather has a long history of arrogance, conceit, pride, self-importance, egotism, bad mouth, and so on. But do that constitute Floyd, being humanity to this degree, scale, level, magnitude, scope or extent by his peers?  "TWITTER" is currently going crazy about Floyd Mayweather and his apparent difficulty with reading. This past week, instead of the ice bucket challenge, Rapper 50 Cent has challenged Floyd Mayweather to read a page out of a Harry Potter book. You know what happen next...someone has uploaded a clip that shows Floyd Mayweather struggling to read. This is heartbreaking!

Jesus Take The Wheel: Former Mars Hill Pastors File Charges Against Mark Driscoll!

Lots going on at Mars Hill lately. According to the internet rumors, this upheaval in the church was instigated by a Mega Pastor in Texas who planted his operatives in the church to create this mess. I don't know how much truth is in in the rumor, but it does look like someone is trying to gain power by destroying Mark Driscoll.

A group of former pastors from Mars Hill Church have filed formal charges against the church's Senior Pastor Mark Driscoll. All 21 pastors have left or been let go from the church. The 11-page complaint filed with the executive elders at Mars Hill alleges Driscoll's abusive and intimidating behavior toward church leaders, staff and members. Source:

UPDATE: Megachurch founder Mark Driscoll will step down for at least six weeks while Mars Hill reviews formal charges lodged against him from previous pastors.

Is Christian Rapper Lecrae Right: You Can't Fight For Equality While Singing About Lawlessness??

Question: Is the above tweet damaging?Do you agree with Lecrae comment, that members of the Hip Hop community cannot ask for equality and justice while at the same time making music about murder, misogyny, and lawlessness.

Lord Have Mercy: People Are Suggesting That Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr. Cancel The 107th Holy Convocation In St. Louis, MO?

Some folks on Facebook are suggesting that Bishop Blake, should, abandon, scrap, drop, ax, scrub, cancel, nix, the 107th Holy Convocation, that's  slated to be held in  St. Louis, Missouri in November.  The old church has issued via it's social media home page a call for calm and  prayer in the wake of what's happening taking place in Ferguson St. Louis. So the question become, should Bishop Blake, even entertain the idea of canceling the 107th Holy Convocation? Thoughts anyone!

(August 12, 2014) The Church of God in Christ (COGIC) joins the family of Michael Brown in asking for calm and peace in the aftermath of the shooting and killing of their son. Eighteen year old Brown, known as a “gentle giant,” was only days away from beginning his college studies. It is imperative that the community resist the temptation to retaliate by looting and rioting in our own neighborhoods. Instead, we must allow the St. Louis County Police Department and the FBI’s investigations, regard…

Jesus Take The Wheel: Pastor To Challenge Church Board On Female Preachers!

A Nashville pastor's decision to license female preachers in his church may cost him his credentials, and could cost his congregation its affiliation they have held for more than a century. Frank Stevenson, senior pastor at St. Luke Primitive Baptist Church, said he won't back down.

 "I knew we were going against tradition," Stevenson said. "Quite honestly, I'm surprised it went to this level and moved so quickly." Stevenson recently received a letter informing him that he could lose his ordination credentials at the church he helped grow from 50 members to more than 1,200 in the past decade. More Here!

Rhetoric 2014: "The Fall" How Sin Changed The History Of The World.

"I can still see the apple stuck in your throat. Adam, swallow your pride" snap! snap! snap!

RHETORIC is the largest and the fastest growing spoken word event in the world. The event last week sold out and had to turn people away at the door. If you missed the highly anticipated performance by Jackie Hill-Perry and husband Preston, then you are in for a real unique and creative treat entitled "The Fall". Adam and Eve let sin change the history of the world. At first their inclination was to accuse one another. Hear Preston and Jackie take us into the fall and how through humility and forgiveness, no sin is too great to reconcile.

 Goodness it's so great to see how far God has brought this couple. Awesome!

Jesus Take The Wheel: Multimillionaire Pastor Sends Plane Load Of "Holy Water" To Cure Ebola???

According to the online chatter, it's being reported that  multimillionaire faith-healer T.B. Joshua had sent a planeload of "holy water" to Sierra Leone because it will cure Ebola. Sierra Leone just got a big gift from a strange man.

Bishop Noel Jones Defends 19 Year Relationship With Long Time Girlfriend!

Bishop Noel Jones explains why he's in no rush to wed longtime girlfriend Loretta. The "Preachers Of L.A." star Bishop Noel Jones has received a lot of criticism for his relationship with his longtime girlfriend who he may or may not be intimate with, but he explained why he’s not rushing into marriage.

“Paul wasn't married. He was probably one of the greatest progenitors of the Word of God,” Noel told the V-103 radio in Atlanta recently. “Many significant Bible characters were not married. Marriage is not a prerequisite for being in the pulpit.”

Jesus Take The Wheel: Dispute Between Queens Pastor and Hotel Owners Turns Violent.

It's a doggone shame this incident went down the way it did, but I can understand the bishop frustration and anger. I've read a couple of blogs and Facebook pages, about the many good things done by Bishop Taylor, who has done work to fight for jobs and decent treatment for people living in the projects.

A disagreement between a local pastor and employees at a hotel in Queens quickly turned ugly, and the entire incident was caught on surveillance camera. Pastor Bishop Mitchell Taylor went to the Howard Johnson in Long Island City on August 8 to confront the owner about a promise to hire locals at his business, but things then spiraled out of control.

Following ‎BET Sunday Best, Bishop TD Jake's Will Be Honored For 35 years Of Ministry!
