Reader with September here, harvest time has set in and the proliferation of songs to stream, cherish and replay are finally falling like manna from Heaven. Travis Greene, Tasha Cobbs Leonard and Anthony Brown have all bestowed the believers with music to last a lifetime, or at least the next 30 days. Still, there are some notable gems that have emerged like Mount Everest. The list is actually longer than what appears here…but here are 7 rock solid new gems to enjoy until the cows come home.

Check out the list here:

New Salem Missionary Baptist Church Voted To Fire Their Pastor.


Reader good Wednesday morning to everyone, I 'm praying that everyone reading this post will have a wonderful and awesome day in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

FBI to meet with church leaders about allegations against Rev. Henry Lyons, former head of the largest Black Baptist Organization, accused of fraud Again. 
Church leaders have accused 75-year-old Henry Lyons of misappropriating funds for his personal benefit, and voted last Thursday evening to remove him as pastor, ending what had once looked like a story of personal redemption. In the 1990s, before fraud prosecutions took him down, Rev. Henry Lyons enjoyed some what of a prestige and favor life with presidents and leaders throughout the land.  
Thanks Mike for the link:

  1. I wasn't going to comment on this post but one sentence in the article had me scratching my head.

    "Lyons, who had been at New Salem since 2004, served nearly "FIVE YEARS IN PRISON" after convictions in STATE and FEDERAL courts for (Here it goes) GRAND THEFT, RACKETEERING,
    TAX EVASION and
    other charges 😳
    in 1999 stemming from his time as PRESIDENT 😳of the National Baptist Convention and as pastor at Bethel Metropolitan Baptist Church in St. Petersburg."

    So to break it down for you.
    This church basically picked him up after he was released FROM PRISON and threw him in the Pulpit with ACCESS to the churches money and business so he could commit the SAME CRIME "AGAIN".

    In this case, I don't even blame the pastor (if you want to call him that).
    I blame the STUPID PEOPLE (and they are stupid)that hired him in the first place. You knew what he was before he got out of prison.

    I am dumbfounded that this church is somehow SURPRISED that he committed the same act AGAIN In their church.

    "Ray Melendez, chairman of the church trustees board. "We are all just shocked.'' (REALLY!?!?)

    If the church staff is so foolish to hire THIS MAN as pastor despite major red flags like PRISON!!! Then they should lose whatever money he stole. Cause they are EXTREMELY POOR STEWARDS OVER WHAT GOD HAS ALLOWED THEM TO HAVE.

  2. Having known Rev. Lyons personally, this is nothing but a witch hunt and personal attack by some members who want power. For those who are unfamiliar with Dr. Lyons, he was the scapegoat for the crimes done under his leadership of the NBC USA, Inc. He's guilty of adultery and tax invasion (By not looking after and reporting his own taxes) but he's not guilty of theft.

    The vote to dismiss him as pastor was done illegally and I believe the members were blind sided by those who wants control of the church. And they are using his past against him.

    1. Dr. Lyons was no scapegoat in that NBC USA, Inc. debacle. Everything starts from the top and he was the leader, right???

    2. So you say He's ONLY guilty of adultery and tax invasion???

      Even if that's true, I am not sure that makes anyone think more highly of him.
