The Power Sermon Series.


Reader lets talk about this, what are your thoughts when it come to pastors getting their inspiration for their Sunday morning sermon from shows like POWER and EMPIRE?  I know Pastor Jamal Bryant is kind of big on using these kind of illustrations. For me I always found it to be problematic.  

Power is an American crime drama television series airing on Starz. The show was created by Courtney Kemp Agboh and is produced by the rapper Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson. The series follows James St. Patrick (Hardwick), nicknamed "Ghost," owner of a popular New York City nightclub "Truth." In addition, he is a major player in one of the city's biggest illegal drug networks. He struggles to balance these two lives, and the balance topples when he realizes he wants to leave the drug ring in order to support his legitimate business. He also has to keep his marriage with Tasha (Naughton) and his relationship with AUSA agent Angela Valdes (Loren). With help from his partner in crime Tommy Egan (Sikora), he tries to manage a double life.

  1. It is awesome to connect popular, urban culture with scripture. These series do connect young people with what they watch to the scriptures. However, our messages as pastors SHOULD come from the Bible through the help of the Holy Spirit. Series like these are fine if it is three or four messages, but not a full series. Pastors should take in consideration both shows are often a poor reflection of blacks in the media and be prophetic in denouncing these story lines.

  2. I don't keep up with this foolishness so I have no idea what this is about. I take my preaching and teaching: from the Bible, straight, with no chaser. Praise the Lord.

    1. I gotta keep a close eye on you, ever since you said you agreed with Brian Carn and all his twisting of Scriptures. I don't know of you are for real or not. You are much better than William Thomas and Johnny Hopkins though.

    2. Miss Ann,

      We are truly living in a time when surely there are those who are not able to endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts have these false teachers making them turn away from the truth and unto fables (2 Timothy 4:3-4), like the TV series.

      The church I used to attend recently had the senior pastors preaching on "love, money and sex". What was odd is that their flyer had a private jet in the background, a limo parked next to the jet stairs, and a couple in the foreground wearing fancy clothing. It looked straight out of a movie. And now this - adultery, drug dealing, murder, lies, etc that the TV series of Power embodies.

      There is a foul spirit among the pastors!

      If a senior pastor has run out of ideas to preach repentance, for the Kingdom of God is near (Matthew 3:2, 4:17, Mark 1:15), let him resign and take several seats!

      "Preach the word: be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine." (2 Timothy 4:2)

  3. IF YOU HAVE BEEN CALLED BY GOD TO PREACH THE WORD OF GOD.HE WILL GIVE YOU WISDOM AND KNOW AND UNDERSTANDING OF HIS HOLY WORD. FIRST PRAY AND FAST AND SEEK GOD FOR WHAT NEEDS TO BE PREACHED AND TEACHED. THE BIBLE IS RIGHT AND EVERYTHING ELSE IS WRONG. HE NEEDS THE INDWELLING OF THE HOLY GHOST TO GET SAVED AND DELIVERED SET FREE. THAT'S WHY SOME ARE CALLED SOME ARE CHOSEN SOME CALLED THEMSELVES. THESE FOLKS DON'T WANT TO WORK ON A REAL JOB TO HAVE TO ANSWER TO ANYONE. SO THEY DECIDE TO BECOME PREACHER'S. SALVATION IS A LIFESTYLE NOT A CAREER. IF YOU DO WHAT GOD TELLS YOU TO DO IN MINISTRY AND NOT WHAT SELF WANTS TO DO .TO GET ACCOLADES FROM MEN. THE PEOPLE'S WILL COME. HOLY AIN'T SEXY NEITHER IS BEING A HIP HOP CULTURE PASTOR. THOSE FOLKS ON THOSE SHOWS DON'T REPRESENTING HOLINESS BUT SINFULNESS. STOP TRYING TO BE LIKE THE WORLD. WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE SET APART WE SUPPOSED TO BE DIFFERENTLY.
