Why Does A COGIC Bishop Regrets Remarks Made By Frances Kelley At 111th Holy Convocation?

Image
Good morning online congregation, the debate goes on, should the church stand behind its own truth? I wasn't going to say anything about this incident, but since I've received a couple of emails asking me for my opinion. "God can’t use no men trying to be women, we call ‘em faggots,”  Evangelist Frances Kelley of Memphis' Pentecostal Temple COGIC says instructing a man in a moment of prayer at the denomination’s recent holy convocation in St Louis.  In my humble opinion, this is not the first time a “gay slur” has been mentioned in church and it sure heck most likely will not be the last, (it should be). What I do not agree with alone with the uses of the gay slur is saying something then taking it back when outside pressure is applied. If you say it, stand behind it, and quit being wishy-washy and quit scaring people away from seeking God. We must "OPENLY declare [our] faith." We can't be wishy-washy, acting one way around one group and a completel

Have You Ever Witness A Pastor Doing This??

Image
Online congregation, what yall think? some are saying that this great act of giving by Pastor John Gray and Relentless Church family should have been done in a private setting, away for the cameras. I disagree, maybe the world need to see the church in a different light.  In my opinion, the members should be able to get more than enough help from the church instead of the government. The church is a multi-billion dollar industry, if they get rid of some of the overhead then maybe, just maybe they can do more, they should be the first point of contact when their members are in need.  Good job Pastor John Gray and Relentless Church.   Here's the backdrop to the post, during this past Sunday morning, worship service Pastor John Gray called people in need to the altar and they got money from the baskets, that was provided. I think it was actually a good thing, Pastor John Gray and the Relentless Church family did, I don't see it being a problem by doing it before the cameras. B

Apostle Nate Holcomb Transition From Life Unto Eternity Where Time No Longer Exist.

Image
Good morning online congregation, my heartfelt condolences goes out to Bishop Nate Holcomb family, friends and church family. I was privileged to have heard him preach a number of times at the church that I was once a member of.   The founder and longtime pastor of the Christian House of Prayer in Killeen, died Tuesday, according to the church and members of the congregation. He was 66 years old. On its Facebook page Tuesday evening, the church posted a photo of Holcomb with a statement on his passing. “Our Beloved Apostle, Bishop and Pastor Nate Holcomb received his promotion this afternoon and is now in the presence of the Lord,” the post read.

Would You Support A Pastor Who Beat and Abused His Wife?

Image
Online congregation tragically, studies reveal that spousal abuse is just as common within Christian churches as anywhere else. This means that about 25 percent of Christian homes witness abuse of some kind. These so-called men of the cloth, with anger issues, need to sit down and get some psychological help. Some of them need to be in jail.  This is alleged Pastor Ryan J. Fontenot beating his wife 4 days after she got out of the hospital. Sadly, this is not new to the church community.  We cover everything up in the church and our community. The only difference is that we can now capture it with technology. My heart breaks for this young mother.  Abused women are in a very dark place and feel alone, especially when kids are involved.  In my opinion, he shouldn't be pastoring anyone's church. This young lady and her kids are in danger.

Ever Been Asked These Questions?

Image
Good morning online congregation, I found the following on my timeline and thought that it would be good to post them here to see what you all think: if living righteously does not exempt me from the same pain and suffering that the ungodly experience then what is the point of trying to obey God? Why do bad things happen to Good people... if God is a good God? Thoughts?

Now We Tear Gassing Migrant Children!??!?!?

Image
Good morning online congregation, so this is 45's version of America? As one coming from the deep south, move over George Wallace and Bull Connor. We now have a sitting U.S. President who is willing to inflict more evil on innocent children than you two. It takes a special kind of soldier who is willing to tear gas small children in diapers in the name of defending America. Sadly, 45's hatred of migrants of color is out of control. He has morphed into a despicable third-world dictator. This photo above shows how a "Christian" nation filled with the descendants of European immigrants treats the "least of these." This is not who we are as a nation. This is who we have become under 45. Where are our Christian leaders? Why are they silent? When will they ever stand up for the human rights of children? Oh, I did forget for a second, they do stand up as long as they stay in the womb.

What Tom-foolery Is This? The Church Is On It's Last Leg!

Can A Man Really Be Tried For The Sins Of His Father? Hillsong Church Founder Under Police Investigation!

Image
Online congregation good morning! I don't know if any of you reading this post have been following the Brian Houston/Hillsong case out of Sydney Australia,( You Can Read About It Here ) but I have. Can a man really be tried for the sins of his father? This is apparently the case in Australia where the founder of the Hillsong Church is being investigated for allegedly not informing the authorities about sex crimes committed by his father. It seems that the case has been reopened against Brian Houston, Hillsong Australia’s founder for hiding his father’s, a known child molester, "pedophilia crimes."  It's so hard to understand how such evil can be done to children. Parents got to protect their children, and stop trusting everyone to their care just because they say "Jesus." Today many church buildings, sadly are pedophilia haven as so many remain quiet. Kids should feel safe, care and love, but if we as a church are not doing, what the Lord has called us

You Can Now Record With Bishop Marvin Sapp For A Small Fee!

Image
Online congregation I saw this on my timeline, tell me what yall think is this is a good idea or a good hustle? Bishop Marvin Sapp says that he has always considered himself a conduit and a springboard for those who have a gift but no opportunity. So he and his team came up with an idea that you the fans can record with Bishop Marvin Sapp for a small registration fee of $250.00 with there being only 300 spots available, with 100 singers per day. With a special guest panel of judges. The contest winner will receive: 1 song recording with the 11 time grammy nominated Marvin Sapp ( as a duet ) The song will be place on ITUNES 3 Months of radio promotion/marketing.  It's a 3 day event TAKING PLACE IN GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN | MARCH 27 - 29. A WINNER WILL BE SELECTED. *ALL TRAVEL AND ACCOMMODATION ARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CONTESTANT. Is this a good idea or a good hustle??

John Chau's Family Says They "forgive those reportedly responsible for his death."

Image
Online congregation, what you all thoughts about this? As you may have heard, John Chau, a U.S. missionary, was killed while attempting to evangelize the Sentinelese people. My heart goes out to his family. I truly respect people that stand firm in their beliefs regardless of the dangers they face. But in reality, he should have listened to the warnings and reasoning why he shouldn't have gone there. This might not be the right or the correct thing to say, but him going to this isolated tribe’s land illegally and getting several locals arrested for it in the process is part of what’s wrong with Christianity, today in my opinion.  I call it the ‘arrogance of one's  faith.’ He wasn’t just trying to share Jesus with those people, instead, it seems as though he had a God complex - thinking he was invincible and above the law.

Why The Double Standard, Apostle Ron and Hope Carpenter Passed The Baton To John and Aventer Gray The Christian Community Was All For It..

Image
Online congregation, I'm going to say this and then, I'm leaving it alone. I'm really surprised at the number of hateful comments I've read in the last day of so about the decision made by Pastor Jamal Bryant to leave Empowerment Temple in Baltimore, MD, and head to New Birth Atlanta GA.  Mind you, most of the backlash I read has come from the black Christian community. One of the many questions is who leaves a church ministry they founded? 🙄  I'm surprised like everyone else that Pastor Bryant would leave a church he founded and grew to such magnitude and leave the city of Baltimore because he REALLY loves that city. But if not mistaken, Apostle Ron Carpenter and wife Hope did the exact same thing but with very little pushback at all. WHY? I've argued in many online forums that it's a double standard happening here. Anyhow, I love the comment posted below from Pastor Mark Moore:

Pastor Jamal Bryant, Just Gave One Of The Greatest Exit Speeches,Thankful For Empowerment Temple And Grateful For New Birth!!

Image
Online congregation, yesterday Pastor Jamal Bryant took to his social media page with one of the greatest exit speech I've ever heard. He poured out his heart before the world....let's continue to pray for Pastor Bryant, The Empowerment Temple Church, and the New Birth Family.

Tasha Cobbs Leonard Is Using Her Platform To Address Depression!!

Image
Good morning online congregation Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I sometimes wonder if this is one of the reasons why so many Gospel artists are dealing with depression, is it that they are trying to serve two masters Jesus and money?  God is a jealous God and He will not accept compromise.

Bishop T.D. Jakes Will Eulogize Kim Porter In An EXTRAVAGANT Homegoing Service!!!

Image
Online congregation, first off my sincere, heartfelt, wholehearted, and profound prayers go out to Kim Porter's family and friends, on her unexpected death.  Y'all, I have questions about online sources ( You Can Read About It Here) that are reporting that Bishop T.D. Jakes will be conducting an EXTRAVAGANT FUNERAL SERVICES for Kim Porter? What exactly does one mean by an extravagant funeral service?   Does this mean that they're planning something so outraged that it will have Kim's name trending on social media for days?   The world says live lavishly, go out extravagantly. For someone like Diddy who's rich and powerful, this would be the last and final opportunity to flaunt immense wealth, for a loved one. There has always been a sort of unspoken rule when discussing death, it should always be done in a respectful and mature way.

Congratulations Dr.Jamal Bryant!!

Image
Online congregation my inbox has been blowing up about this latest news ( You Can Read About It Here ) and this is what I have to say! CONGRATULATIONS GOES OUT TO THE NEW BIRTH FAMILY & DR. BRYANT. New Birth Church family made a choice for their church and I support them 100% whether we like it or not. I don't know Dr, Bryant personally but do celebrate his new journey. I do believe he will be a great fit. Folks can say what they want....Pastor Bryant leaving the city of Baltimore is a huge blow to the faith community. Some of the people who live there are saying that he's engaged civically in the community and they don't know of any church that does more for the community than Empowerment Temple. He has his issues but so does other pastors. So pray for him, souls are on the line.

So, Is It True That Pastor Antonio Rocquemore, Lied On A Sixteen Year Old Kid?

Image
Online congregation here we go again another pastor allegedly caught lying. This is an update on the viral video of an incident that happened two weekends ago. Sources are now reporting that Senior Pastor Antonio Rocquemore of Power House International Ministries in Chicago, has allegedly lied about his interactions with a 16-year-old kid whom he publicly shamed by putting him out of HIS church. According to the victim 16-year-old Antwan Haywood, who was on live with Larry Reid last night, said he and the pastor never had a conversation before. He said once the church mother told him he didn’t need to dress like a girl and he felt like that she said it because he had a book bag.... he also alluded to the fact that when she said it most of the members looked and basically just said she was mean. Also doing the live which you can watch below starting at the 2:55:00 mark; we also found out that the woman standing behind the pastor in the viral clip looking like a male was actual the pa

Dave Ramsey Says Pastor Must Stop Telling 'Broke' People To Tithe!

Image
Good morning online congregation, I think the entire point of the below post of Dave Ramsey’s criticism is that some preachers out there will actually make a person feel guilty for not tithing when their finances are not in order at all. If they were on a budget and they were able to get to a point where they wouldn’t struggle to give, their giving would be MUCH more joyful. People who give from the goodness of their hearts probably give MORE than 10% many many times. Dave Ramsey's point is to teach them to budget so they can be joyful givers. Being in debt is also not okay according to scripture. You can’t pick and choose which parts you want to focus in on...it is all-encompassing.

What Y'all Think About This: One of Jesus’ Most Famous Lines Wasn’t In Original Gospels!!

Image
Good morning online congregation, Y'all this is fascinating. The widespread ignorance of basic Bible knowledge by Christians allows such utterly misleading headlines to fan the flames of anti-Christian nonsense.  Some say that they didn't have an idea that the story of the woman caught in adultery isn’t in the original manuscripts. I learned this about 20 yrs ago. My understanding is it was kept because it underlined true grace through Christ. Even more fascinating is why its absence didn’t matter to the early Church. That "most famous" line about "judge not lest you be judged" has never been part of that story and is not from John's gospel, at all. It is found in Matthew 7:1 and Luke 6:37 (In both cases, that "famous line" was undeniably part of the original writing.

Pastor Jamal Bryant Is Stepping Down As The Senior Pastor of Empowerment Temple.

Is he going to be the new pastor at New Birth missionary Baptist Church? Rumor has it that Pastor Jamal Bryant is stepping down as the Senior Pastor of Empowerment Temple, effective December 2, 2018!

What Y'all Think, Should Cellphones Be Banned In Church Services????

Image
What are yall thoughts on banning cells phones from church services? Whether or not it is okay to use cell phones in church depends on the situation and the reason. We cannot say that it is always wrong to use a cell phone in church, any more than we can say it is always okay to use a cell phone in church. Different situations warrant different answers. I would say that sometimes it's okay and sometimes it is not, depending on the circumstances. Let's consider two different viewpoints. Some are saying that the use of cell phones during church service has gotten out of hand. Why others are saying telling people (in the last quarter of 2018) to not bring cell phones into the church has got to be the dumbest thing they ever heard. I have posted below two different viewpoints from two different young men of  God on the subject of cell phones in the church. I find myself agreeing more with the thinking of Minister Mark Moore on this.

The Obamas Are ‘Becoming’ A Billion-dollar Brand, Good For Them!

Image
There's some strong online grumbling over the Obamas getting paid for their worth. I say more power to them. They earned it - they didn't inherit it. Isn't that supposed to be admirable?  The Obama's are intelligent highly educated why not get paid for there work? They make money the old fashioned way...they earn it. They also pay taxes, bills, just like the rest of us! Who knew? Private citizens can work in the US.  I'm glad for every million they make they deserve it. Hahaha, why don't they just be like the %%% and steal from charities and money launder millions from Russian mobsters? Again what's wrong with the Obamas writing great books and giving great speeches and making money by working for it?

Dr.Juanita Bynum This Might Not Be A Good Idea!!

Image
Y'all help me understand the above flyer it has me kind of lost for words. So I did some digging and found out that some churches usually have investors. (I'm going to blog about that later) I follow Dr. Juanita Bynum on social media so when the following post came across my timeline it caused me to pause: Build Your Vision and Leave a Legacy for Family. Join me, along with industry experts, as we bring Real, Practical, and Life Changing Empowerment to your Financial Life... The Dream is Free but EXECUTION requires investment and strategy. Sessions include Investing in your Health; Investing in your Self; Investing in your Future, and I’ll be imparting the process of Investing in your own Vision!! Dr. Bynum might need to stay in her preaching lane and leave the investing thing to the expert. This reminds me of how Bishop Eddie Long, the senior pastor of New Birth Missionary Church in Atlanta, got caught up in that alleged scam with Ephren Taylor. For all who do not know,

Thank You Pastor John Gray For Clarifying Your Early Comment!!

Image
Earlier this week, I wrote about the comments Pastor John Gray made while being interviewed on Sister Circle regarding his 8-year marriage to his wife Aventer and how she endured more pain raising him as a man than she did birthing their two children, which set social media on fire.  Pastor Gray spoke about how Aventer was a coat that was two sizes too big for him. He said that to mean that not only was she a covering for him in their relationship, but he had to grow into her. Well, Pastor John Gray has come back to social media to try and clarify what he meant. I love this video clip:

45 Proposes a New Way Around Birth Control Mandate!!

Image
How is it possible that in 2018, birth control is controversial?! It has been pointed out so many times that birth control pills are used for many different reasons by various women; not all of them having to do with contraception. This is yall president, taking it 1 step at a time to undermine peoples access to birth control by “making it easier to exclude birth control from health insurance benefits.” Oh, and it does say that if your employer denies you coverage for contraceptives, that you can go to a family planning clinic. Good luck finding one though, not many are left, and just keep in mind that according to this article you have to be in the “low-income bracket” to be considered a priority! 😬 let’s do our best to get this idiot, moron, fool, imbecile out the door in 2018, shall we?

Bishop Hezekiah Walker Says Follow Your Heart Not People

Image
There are many calls to “follow your heart” in movies, novels, slogans, blogs, and memes. Related pieces of advice are “trust yourself” and “follow your instincts.” Rather than trust our hearts, we are to commit our hearts to God: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:5–6). This passage gives an explicit command not to trust ourselves. And it gives the promise of guidance to those who choose to follow the Lord. Anyhow, Bishop Hezekiah Walker, Isreal Houghton, Yolanda Adams, and Bishop Noel Jones caught some serious backlash from the Christian community a couple of weeks ago for agreeing to perform at this non-Christian event. ( You Can Read About It Here ) Some were saying that if these folks are saved, there is no way they would agree to support such an organization that says Jesus failed.  I say money and power are very persuasive, deceptive, and destructi

Farm Animals May Soon Get New Features Through Gene Editing!!!

Image
"New features"? I understand selective breeding to reinforce the desired trait. Farmers have been doing it for centuries.  But "new features" doesn't sound like a desirable thing. A company wants to alter farm animals in the lab with gene editing. It says its goal is to ease animal suffering.  Cows that can withstand hotter temperatures. Cows born without pesky horns. Pigs that never reach puberty. The company wants to alter the animals by adding and subtracting genetic traits in a lab. Thoughts???

This Should Be The Testimonies For All Churches That Hold Up The Banner Of Christ!!

Open the church doors wide and be careful who you throw out. Throwing folks out of the church because you don't like their lifestyle or the way they dress should be frown upon.

Are The Jehovah's Witnesses A Cult???

Image
I watch this for the first time last night, I was floored. Why would anyone want to be Jehovah's Witness? I never understood it. If one should do some online research they will be quite surprised at what they will find, in terms of this group. The Witnesses make many claims in their attempt to convert folks to their faith. They profess to have the only true Christian church, to be the only true representatives of God, to have the only correct biblical teaching, and to be the only true announcers of Jehovah's coming kingdom. Former Scientologist Leah Remini has started the third season of her docu-series on the Church of Scientology on A&E. On Monday night's episode of SCIENTOLOGY AND THE AFTERMATH, Leah Remini for the very first time meets with former members of a different organization—the Jehovah's Witnesses. In the 2- hour special episode, a panel of contributors open up and shared their personal stories of growing up in this secretive organization. There we

Come On Pastor Jonn Gray A Wife Is Not A Covering!!

Image
I’m sorry Pastor John Gray and I mean no disrespect to you at all but sometimes I think you love to hear yourself talk in (rambling) parables. Using trickery words is becoming your go-to game. I guess you are going with what sells. I saw this and screamed in horror cause I never heard no man say I've let my wife grow into me or anything like that.  Yesterday Pastor John Gray joined the ladies on Sister Circle Live and made some outlandish claims. Like him saying that his wife has experienced more pain “birthing him” than she has their two children?? Everything about this conversation confused me and gives me worry. A wife is not a covering for the husband, the husband is the covering, that's according to the WORD.  According to the WORD she's a helpmate and has the ability to make intercession on your behalf, have insight into things you may not be able to see or comprehend be of assistance in helping you fulfill your God-ordained purpose, but a covering I think not. An

Thanks To Overseer Deitrick Haddon, Christians Now Have Baby Making Music!??!?!?

Image
On Sunday, November 11, 2018, Overseer Deitrick Haddon officially launch Hill City Church  Houston. He spoke a prophetic word over the house in Houston. Also in an earlier part of the week, He introduces the Christian world to his next music project, which has stirred up a lot of online buzz.  Remember this is the same man who said you can have sex out of wedlock.  Some say this is not appropriate for a Pastor to be singing, plus it has nothing in the world to do with Christmas. In my opinion, all Overseer Deitrick Haddon is doing just expressing his lust through music. Check out the clip below:

Church Announcement:Church of God in Christ (COGIC) Holy Convocation To Return To Memphis, Tennessee In 2021👌👌

Image
Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr., the General Board, and the General Assembly, the legislative body of the Church of God in Christ (COGIC) have all voted to return the Holy Convocation to the City of Memphis, Tennessee in 2021. The convention has been held for the last nine years in St. Louis, Missouri. The Holy Convocation will be held in Memphis through 2023. Presiding Bishop Blake, says “the Church of God in Christ since 2010 has held our largest convention, the Holy Convocation in St. Louis, MO and today we voted to move the convention in 2021-2023 to the city of Memphis, TN. Bishop Blake also states, “The City of Memphis has special significance in the spiritual and cultural life of COGIC and we are pleased to return to the place of our origin.” The Holy Convocation will be held in St. Louis through 2020.

Is This Pastor In Order, Or Out Of Order?

Image
Yall I was reading the comments under this video and it was said that this Pastor had asked the young man to dress according to his gender whenever he comes into the church house,  this was done in a private conversation prior, and he continued to dress in women attire..and then this happened...I really don't like how this was done but, if I was told I was not welcomed to come as I am, I would not come at all.   Questions did the pastor just "Lose a Soul!?!?" Did the pastor handle this in the appropriate way!?!? Or was this "Out of Order" NO DISRESPECT TO ANYONE!!! Let me know what y'all think.

Pastor Still Keeps Job, After Coming Out As Atheist!!!

Image
This is insanity if she does not believe in God, what business does she have pastoring a Christian church that does? First, it’s Christian witches. Now we have atheist pulpit pastors? A Toronto United Church minister that identifies as an atheist will remain ordained and continue to minister in her Toronto congregation after a three and a half year battle.  “Pastor ordained in 1993 and had served as minister of West Hill United Church since 1997, has been upfront about her atheism and non-belief in the Bible for years.”  What message are we sending to believers and the world? God help us. Nothing against this person but I fail to see how the Church can have a pastor over one of their churches and leave an example of God to them when they preach they don’t believe the Bible or His existence?  That's why many don't take churches seriously these days and why many of them dishonor  God. What kind of a 'church' is that, which would let an atheist 'pastor' thei

Larry Reid was allegedly BAN from all COGIC event(s) he said because of that ban it has piqued his interest.

Can The Marriage Bed Be Defiled???

Image
What Y'all think, can the marriage bed be defiled?  Or, does anything and everything go so long as husband and wife are in agreement with their sexual activities? Well, it looks like there's an online disagreement brewing between these two pastors concerning the question. It looks like the Senior Pastor of Ex-Ministries G Craige Lewis think that the marriage bed cannot be defiled while Pastor Gary Price and his camp of Omega Ministries, seems to think differently. Check out the conversation below:

Many Pastors See Bump In 2018 Giving But Black Pastors More Likely To Report Decline!!

While some 42 percent of pastors, in general, are reporting a bump in giving to their churches over 2017, an equal amount of African American pastors say giving has gone down for them over the same period, a new survey from Lifeway Research says.

Looking For Ancient African Religion? Try Christianity!

Image
Very very interesting writing by Pastor Ernest Cleo Grant II.  It's not a new thing but it's a growing thing because of the failure of the Church to properly confront racism and White Supremacy, and of others refusing to listen; which has helped to make Black People more vulnerable to certain things. Even though more young black people are leaving organized religious institutions, that doesn’t mean they are not spiritual. Steadily, it seems like when blacks move away from the Christian church, they tend to move towards less organized spiritual practices based on traditional African spirituality. There have been no knocks on the door, no pamphlets, no billboards, no late-night hotlines, no viral video campaigns. And yet, an unnamed spiritual movement reimagining African tradition and nature-centered spirituality have been growing among young black Americans.

Megachurch Pastor Ed Young Stated That We As Democrats Are Godless!!!

Image
Online congregation Megachurch Pastor Dr. Ed Young Senior, called Democrats "some kind of religion that is basically godless" during a Tuesday night election watch party impromptu speech.   Here is one of the biggest churches in Houston. This is what churches have started to represent, hatred. And they call the Democrats godless for caring for others. People like Ed Young are the godless one for being in the church for the money alone. I'm really disappointed with Young. He cast a wide brush and " painted " ALL Democrats one color. Thanks for revealing your TRUE heart Dr. Young. "Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks". Matthew 12:34. He basically said if you are not with the fool in the Whitehouse then you are against God. Now I’m sure his congregation is mixed of Democrats, Republicans, and Liberals how dare him.

What's So Wrong With Dr. Creflo Dollar Offering A $19 Per Month Online Bible Study Subscription ?!?!?!!?

Image
Good morning online congregation, I don't think this is a bad idea. Dr.Creflo Dollar, the senior pastor of the Mega Church World Changers Church International, has come under fire once again this time for offering a $19 per month online Bible study subscription that he says will help people make withdrawals from God’s metaphorical bank account. The announcement was made Via Video “So many of us are living our lives with unmet needs, although God has already freely given us access to his heavenly accounts to make those withdrawals,” he continued. Now in my humble opinion which is not the most popular one, whether or not anyone agrees with his teachings or not, I am wondering what the problem is with the concept of paying for a class? I'm used to making an offering at Bible Study, so I don't see this as any different.  Now I don't get it, would folks pay for a Christian book or tape? Would folks pay for a class at bible school? So, I'm guessing the problem folks

Online congregation according to Larry Reid, speculations are swirling about Bishop Patrick Wooden’s sermon that echoes Earl Carter’s from 4 years ago that introduced us to Andrew Cardwell’s “I like women”. In this clip it’s alleged that he was referencing some ordained elder in the COGIC. What do you guys think?

Get Out Of Here, Bishop Victor Couzens Compares Himself To King David!!

Image
Good morning online congregation, oh my God, Bishop Victor Couzens is at it again. This man is something else. In the latest clip uploaded to social media, Bishop Couzens is trying to justify sleeping with two women at the same time and lying to both of them. What this guy forgot to add to the story is that God judged the sin of David and it cost him two children..one that was a child and the other a grown man who betrayed him...this pastor is going to be judged as well ....the bible says that judgment starts in the household of faith! Stop trying to JUSTIFY SIN!! Folk always try to justify their sins that found them out, especially from the pulpit. The difference between him and David is David did not try to make his wrong right.

Dr. Creflo Dollar Said That God Want Us To Prosper Financially? Is There Scripture To Support This?

Image
Good morning online congregation, some folks are calling Dr. Dollar latest tweet an unbiblical view of Christianity. And that Jesus never promised us wealth and health. Prosperity is referring to our sick and dying souls that is why Christ died for us. Jesus promised that in this world we will have tribulations and trials. (JOHN 16:33) "Follow me and pick up your cross". (Matthew 16:24)"You will be hated for the world hated me first".(John 15:18) "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth" this is just a natural greetings of John to the church. This is not a teaching or a doctrine. Some say that Dr. Dollar is a false prophet sent from hell to deceive gullible people that are seeking after a "get rich quick scheme". A con-man always has to gain the confidence of his victims in order to deceive them.  What are your thoughts, do you agree with Dr. Dollar?

Millions Of Gospel Fans Know Richard Smallwood's Music. But Not His Struggles.

Image
Good morning online congregation, Richard Smallwood is a bona fide Gospel music legend and I appreciate this level of vulnerability coming from him.  I've loved his music since childhood. It has carried me through some difficult times. Real music ministers to the soul and lasts throughout generations. This is an old write up, but a beautiful one. I'm encouraged by the healing he experienced. In the late 1990s, Richard Smallwood found himself having difficulty getting out of bed. He wouldn’t bathe. Wouldn’t shave. Couldn’t write music. He’d be alone, sobbing, not wanting to leave his house. He thought about ways to kill himself. “I had no desire to live,” he says. “I was consumed with suicide most of the day.” In 2002, he was finally diagnosed with clinical depression. “I had no idea. I just thought I was unhappy a lot,” he says. “It was debilitating. I knew Jesus probably longer than some folks have, and I suffered. It’s an illness, like cancer, or diabetes. You can’t ju

Why Did Will and Jada Smith For Years Deny Being Apart Of Scientology???

Online congregation this is an interesting episode . I didn't know they were secretly beefing and I need to read up on Scientology to really understand what they are talking about because I'm totally lost. Y'all this is one of the many reasons I love America. The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution says that everyone in the United States has the right to practice his or her own religion, or no religion at all. It's been rumored for years that Will and Jada Smith were apart of Scientologist. Anyhow, after years of not speaking, Jada Pinkett Smith and Leah Remini meet at the Table to discuss their very public dispute over Leah’s accusations that Jada and Will Smith are Scientologists. It has long been rumored that Jada and husband Will Smith are or were at one point linked to the Church of Scientology, the religion made famous by Tom Cruise and one that Leah practiced for decades until she left it in 2013. In 2017, the latter actress told The Daily Beast that
