Beyonce Photoshoot Sparks Controversy Among Christians???

Reader, kudos to Beyoncé for giving her fans an African history lesson with her latest photoshoot announcing the news of her baby bump. Incase you haven't heard are don't care, Beyoncé is pregnant again with twins. 

Most of you like myself probably don't give a rat's behind about this news, which is totally fine, as Beyoncé probably doesn't play an important role in either of our lives. Anyhow, here's the African history lesson of  the images of Beyoncé dressed as the Orisha Oshun giving birth to the orisha Ibeji, the first twins. 

Below the cut is a post by Cora Jakes Coleman (the eldest daughter of T.D. Jakes) addressing the idiocy of all this. 


African spirituality Yoruba, is a polytheistic religion, meaning there are multiple “gods” in the religion, not just one. The gods in Yoruba are called Orisha, and Orisha are spirits that represent specific manifestations of the divine. Each Orisha have their own origin story, many of them were always spirits while others were real people who lived their lives in such a way that upon death they were regarded as Orisha. Which orisha were real people is not known, but for the sake of this history lesson, we will assume that Oshun and Ibeji were real people and now are fine spirits. Oshun is the orisha of love and rivers. She is often depicted as a happy woman in a yellow dress, surrounded by water. She was in love with the orisha of thunder, Shango, who was in a polygamous marriage with her sister the orisha Oya. Oshun was a woman who truly valued love and happiness and would give of herself infinitely to see others happy, but she often never felt like others would do the same for her. When she felt particularly hurt by others, she was known to destroy entire villages in a mad rage. Even while on her rampages however, Oshun was still always known to be smiling and laughing as she destroyed everything in her path. When Oshun got pregnant by Shango, she gave birth to the first twins in history, Taewo and Kehinde. Taewo and Kehinde shared the same soul and as orisha, they are known as one spirit, the Orisha of the Twins, Ibeji: Source Tiameca Oshun Hollins 


This leads me to my next point. I've seen a few random people make posts or comments going against the photo & saying quite rude/judgmental things. (some whom are Christians) I just don't understand how people are so negatively affected by this that they feel the need to post about it and how "bad" it is. 

Thoughts?

  1. I'm split on this one.

    On one hand, I fully agree with Cora. On the other hand, doesn't her father have nearly the same cult-like following as Bey?

  2. Miss Ann,

    FYI, all this African history lesson is a snippet of what the Yoruba (part of present day Nigeria) believed in, just like Greek mythology. I can assure you, this is NOT the total sum of the history concerning Africa as a whole. Trust, I would know!

    I don't care for Bey, but I'm wondering why Cora would call out "Christians" like that. Isn't she the one who's been trying to have babies for a while?

    Why doesn't she remind the "Christians" she is addressing about the importance of living according to the precepts of God? Than talking about people spending money elsewhere that could have been spent in church?

    She should have kept quiet. There is wisdom in silence (Proverbs 17:28). She would've known this if she read the WORD of God.

    The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall NOT want...

  3. First of all Bey isn't SAVED and she doesn't confess to be. Do she wouldn't be addressing the SAINTS. Lady Jakes Coleman should have just kept her mouth SHUT. And prayed. Her father is T.D. Jakes he is a cult leader,Money Lauderer,False Prophet, Prosperity Preacher. She doesn't have the right to tell nobody where to spend there money. I am not a Bey fan so I could care less what she does or think. So my question is ? Why is Cora Jakes Coleman a minister following Bey and why she find it her Christian duty to address it. Even though Bey isn't SAVED she does give plenty of Money to charities and to churches. Just ask Bishop Charles Blake of West Angles COGIC. IJS

    2. Anonymous,

      "Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble." James 2:19

      The fruit the Beyoncé is putting out doesn't reflect that she lives according to the precepts of God.

  5. Well if Bey claims that she knows Jesus Christ everybody knows who HE is but do everyone confess HIM to be the There Lord and Savior Jesus Christ of there life. And we know by her lifestyle and her music that. JESUS Christ isn't the Lord of her life. Action speaks louder than Words. She wouldn't have posted herself with the witchcraft information posts if she truly loved GOD and HE was the center of her life. She's into the Illuminati.But so is Jakes Dad.

  6. WOW! What concerns me is that 'ANYONE' would even 'THINK' that this LOOSE LOOKING WOMAN & HER HUSBAND have anything to do with being a follower of Jesus Christ. She can post whatever she wants with ALL of her being half naked. Why would ANYONE even 'THINK' her character is acceptable to God. As a matter of sayin'..Are you kidding me?? I would RUN from this woman. SO SAD! She REALLY needs to get delivered and set free & her husband. That's my spiritual insight by the Word Of God. ONLY JESUS! In Christ Alone, RLR.
