"Should Christians Go To Nightclubs? Is Clubbing A Sin?"

Image
Reader, I'm sure we have probably discussed this topic once before here but...should Christians go to nightclubs? The above picture of Worship Leader Israel Houghton and new wife Adrienne Bailon were found on my Facebook feed.

The bible refers to partying and clubbing as part of our “sinful nature” and anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.(Galatians 5:18-21).

Should Christians Join The Masonic Lodge?

Image
Reader this debate among Christians will forever be taking place, Christianity should avoid all appearances of evil. Christians should not be members of a Masonic lodge.

Lord Have Mercy, Vice President Mike Pence Is Being Criticized For Honoring His Wife???

Image
Reader so the Vice President is being criticized for honoring his wife? I can't see how this is creepy as some are trying to make it out to be. It's part of his faith and even though I don't agree with Pence I respect any religion. People are trying to pull Jesus into the debate but, don’t understand they are not Jesus, Jesus had no sin, we have a sin nature.

Is The Church The Answer To Racial Reconciliation??

Image
Reader Jesus washing the feet of the disciples (John 13:1–17) occurred in the upper room, just prior to the Last Supper and has significance in three ways. For Jesus, it was the display of His humility and His servanthood. For the disciples, the washing of their feet was in direct contrast to their heart attitudes at that time. For us, washing feet is symbolic of our role in the body of Christ. With that being said please join me in thanking Victory World Church for this beautiful message and illustration. The pastor washes the feet of a young black man and explains why he thinks the saying "Make America Great Again" only applies to one set of people.

Is It Possible For Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake To Have Great Success With Influencing The Thinking Of Donald Trump, Like He Did In The Past With President Obama?

Image
Reader, what are your thoughts about the above comment which was posted by a COGIC elder? Do you agree, Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake is an example of a servant in leadership who has become a voice to the nations to uphold the standards of holiness?
 He is known to many as being an eloquent, compassionate and practical leader, as well as a humanitarian and an advocate with a God-given gift for ministering to the whole man. Thoughts??

The Gospel Jumpoff With Guest Host Mr. Andrew Chad Caldwell, Was Andrew Used To Mock The Church, At This Event???

Image
Reader, while church folks are yet talking about Mr. Delivert, Andrew Chad Caldwell he's making money from the church crowd. Someone booked Andrew to host an event this past weekend as part of the Gospel Stellar Award in Las Vegas, which didn't go over to well with some Christians. Check out some of the more elite and famous Gospel names on the flyer. Folks are laughing at him but the church is who's raising him up and paying his bills.



I personally like Andrew even though I have never met him in person. Please check out the video below and tell me if you think Andrew was being used to mock the church, as some are suggesting.  A mocking spirit make fun of our God-given identity and purpose in life to limit us! 

Question Is Oral Sex Biblically Wrong Within A Christian Marriage??

Image
Reader there's a downside to having a large social media presence, and a lot of people are finding that out.....once it's out there it's out there. Some Christians have come for Minister Heather Lindsey over a IG post she posted last year.  Tell me what y'all think about the way Minister Heather Lindsey answered the above question? 

Some on social media are calling her out for the flipped-way in which she answered the question without giving biblical supporting scripture to back her up.  Others are saying that most pastors like her give their personal opinion on this subject and preach it as doctrine. Instead of being real and saying I'm not really sure because it's not clear in the Bible.

What Is The Parables Of The 10 Virgins?

Image
Reader, among the teachings of Jesus, the parable of the 10 Virgins, found in Matthew chapter 25, ranks as one of the most notable. In it, the Lord presents a warning, namely that some of those who set out with the best of intentions to find the kingdom of God will not enter it, but will find themselves turned away in the end.

Many Young Adults Are Turning To Witchcraft As A Way To Rebel Against Their Conservative Christian Upbringings.

Image
Reader, a recent Barna Group study found that only 4 percent of Americans aged 18 to 29 have a Biblical worldview. Only 4 percent. The shocking truth is that the values of most Millennials much more easily fit into pagan spirituality than they do into most evangelical Christian churches. If you want to sleep around with as many people as possible, that is okay in witchcraft.

Christian Cussing, Swearing, & Profanity Is It A Matter Of Opinion?

Image
Reader, cussing, swearing, and profanity is it a matter of opinion,when it comes to the Christian? Is cussing, swearing, and profanity a sin according to Scripture? While some Christians seems to think it is no matter what  society says or accepts why other Christians think not.

When Lying On God Go Wrong: Pat Roberston “Mark My Words, God Told Me The Republican Health Care Bill Will Pass”!??!!?

Image
Reader, do these people have even the slightest idea what Christ embodied? Love, compassion, kindness, charity, humility etc. are the attributes of a truly Christ like person, NOT obliterating the poor to benefit the rich. The hypocrisy is sickening. I would certainly hope they're able to be Christ like one day soon.
I'm a Christian, but I believe a lot of so called Christians are just racist bigots in sheep clothing. These people will be held accountable, God is good and sees all. 

"Prosperity Gospel Makes God Look Like A liar."

Image
Reader, not a fan of the Southern Baptist crowd  for all the obvious reason.   But do with all respect like what Dr. R. Albert Mohler Jr. had to say about "The Prosperity Gospel" a couple of years ago. He said it well, the prosperity gospel is a false and failed gospel, which makes God look like a liar.


Will The Removal Of Senior Pastor Chris Hill Bring Harm To Bishop T.D.Jakes Brand!?!??!

Image
Reader, a bad decision or choice can quickly destroy an entire life's brand. Well here we go again with another church scandal that will surely challenge and test our faith. In my opinion, some pastors rise up to fame from within the church and often time do a lot of damage to the flock before they are confronted.
 If they do leave, they always take a lot of unsuspecting people along with them who are angry at the church for being so unloving and judgmental. Case in point, some on social media are upset because rumors have it Bishop Jakes sit Pastor Chris Hill Down, for a season. (You can read about it here


Church Standing Behind Pastor Who Is Released From Jail After Sexual Misconduct Charges With Underage Family Members.

Image

The Roanoke Times reports:

Get Out Of Here: 45 Has Been Announced As The Liberty University Commencement Speaker!!

Image
Reader, aren't commencement speakers supposed to give great advice to graduates about their futures and how to succeed? We all know those students want be getting that from 45, he mostly going to talk about himself and how "great" he is, microwave cameras, poll numbers, etc. To think, they consider themselves to be a "Christian University" to let a sexual assaulting, lying, racist narcissistic person like 45 speak there?

Here We Go Again, Fake Christians Give Outrage Over The New Power Ranger Movie!??!!?

Image
Reader, in a bold and progressive move, the upcoming film Power Rangers - which is a reboot of the beloved '90s children's television show - features both a gay character and a character who is on the 'autism spectrum' according to The Hollywood Reporter.  Superhero movies generally are not known for including LGBTQ characters, but the new Power Rangers film is going in a new direction. Power Rangers Movie director Dean Israelite said the film is saying "all of the kids have to own who they are and find their tribe."

The Rebranding Of Brian Carn Ministry!

Image
Reader, what do people generally think of when they think about certain high profile teachers of the Gospel like Brain Carn, Creflo Dollar, Joel Osteen, T.D.Jakes, etc? People often times connect these high profile men of God names to a personality and church.  I do believe Prophet Brain Carn is one who now is dealing with that question along with a branding issue. 

In the last couple of months, Prophet Brian Carn Ministries,  have been less visible on all social media outlets. And, yes, I did see the scope where Prophet Carn stated that God told him to leave all social media for a season, which seems kind of strange to me, oh well.  His leaving social media is considerable quite noticeable for someone who had built his present day generational following by way of social media. People are noticing the lack of presence. 

You Have To Stop Letting The Enemy Sit You In The Corner And Beg For What Is Yours- ARREST HIM!

Image
Reader, I can not tell y'all the last time I heard a sermon preached like this sermon which spoke directly to my present life situation.  Bishop Jakes Sunday morning sermon title “Arrest Him,” tells the hearers and doers of the word how opportunities are built on accessibility. If you’re not accessible, you will and can lose the opportunities to be used.

This message hit me in the heart because I'm starting to lose my faith and sometimes question why God won't' get me out of my  bad situation. I'm feeling like my time is running out. I'm trying not to give up faith or stop worshipping GOD because of my growing bitterness. 

The struggle is real.

Big Announcement:

Image
Reader, I will not allow anonymous comments any longer on my blog.  I'm taking this position because I'm sick and tired of the "TROLLS'. This will stopped anonymous and the trolls from commenting and trying to take over my comment section.

I think if  you write something worth reading, it should have a name attach to it.  There is just too much foolishness going on the web and elsewhere to keep giving someone an opportunity to post anonymously.  I thought about moderating, but then, I would be making it my responsibility to sort out the exceptions. From this point on if you want to leave a comment under a post MAN UP and own your comment by using your government name.

The Attack Against Financial Guru Suze Orman!!

Image
Reader Suze Orman hasn't until yesterday talked about politics on her Facebook page, until the new proposed BUDGET by 45 administration was made public. Suze Orman has always been about educating people about money & finances. 45 proposed 2018 federal budget has alarmed many, with its drastic cuts to health research, the arts, and programs that aid the poor. And one of the most alarmed is financial guru Suze Orman, who took to her Facebook page to say how terrible this would be. But some of 45 supports and uneducated voters didn't like what Suze had to say on the subject told her to shut up and leave politics along.

“The budget that was presented this morning targets the poor and literally takes away vital financial help that many people cu…

Is Oprah Right On Psalm 37:4? What Do You Think It Truly Means To Delight Yourself In The Lord?

Image
Reader, Oprah Winfrey has claimed that her favorite bible verse Psalm 37:4 states that “that if we delight ourselves in The Lord (which is really a sense of goodness, kindness, love, etc) then good things will happen to us".
