We claim VICTORY and are praying for Damita and her family.

Here We Go Again, Young Preacher Ladies Night Edition!

Image
Online congregation early this month, Bishop Greg Davis hosted "Young Preacher" a television special on The Word Network with over 40 young preachers from across the country, to discuss relevant topics as they relate today. Well, that show went so well that he's doing it again but this time with a women-only panel. After that panel discussion, a lot of young Christian women were asking what about the daughters of the house? When do we get our say? We are often times boxed into evangelist and prophetess. I guess Greg Davis heard them.

A Group Of Funeral Directors In South Africa Say They Will Sue A Self-styled Prophet Who Claims To Have Resurrected A Dead Man.

Image
Good Wednesday morning online congregation, Pastor Alph Lukau of Alleluia Ministries International (South Africa) raises a man from death and cancels his funeral.....they're claiming that the man had been in the mortuary for 2 days. Now a group of funeral directors says they will sue the self-styled prophet for lying in claiming to have resurrected the dead man.  A viral video of Pastor Alph Lukau shows him shouting "rise up" to a man lying down in a coffin who then jerks upright to cheers from worshippers.  The funeral companies say they were manipulated into being involved.  The spectacle, seen outside Pastor Lukau's church near Johannesburg, has been ridiculed and condemned by many.

The Word Network Is Under Fire For Allowing False Prophet Joshua Holmes On To The Network Without First Vetting Him!??!!?!?

Image
Online congregation what do yall think about this? The Word Network is coming under online fire for allowing false prophet Joshua Holmes to interview on the network. Some in the African American community are saying that Bishop Greg Davis and Bishop George Bloomer both should be removed from the network for not screening, examining, or vetting the false prophet before allowing him to appear on the network. Holmes who has a leaked viral video recording showing himself indulging in explicit sexual activity with two women who are not his wife.

Does It Matter How The Preacher Dresses?

Image
Online congregation, I like the premise of this article. We have become far too casual with an almighty God. I believe that giving your best to the Master includes looking your best.  I know I lean toward the older, more traditional end of the spectrum, but I remember growing up hearing that if we were going to meet the President, how would we dress? Going to church is preparing to go before the Lord and worship/meet with Him. I’ve always kept that in my heart and mind. What yall think does it matter how your pastor dresses?

The United Methodist Church Vote, No To Same-Sex Weddings, And No To Gay Clergy!!

Image
Online congregation yesterday the United Methodist governing body voted to reject the LGBT-friendly "One Church Plan," in a move that surprised many of the plan's supporters. "We are committed to finding ways to make justice and mercy a centerpiece of all of our ministries," said Neil Alexander of Uniting Methodists, a group that backed the "One Church Plan. Some are saying with this move,  "They have chosen to stay in the past.  This will hurt them in the future.  When people or their family members don't feel welcome,  they will leave. The younger generation is already moving away from organized religion because of attitudes like this."

Bishop Jakes Said That We Have Many Teachers, But Not Enough Fathers,Let It Out!!

Image
Online congregation this took place last week at The Lighthouse Church of Houston TX, under the leadership of Pastor Keion Henderson.....they had a revival were, Bishop T.D. Jake was the speaker of the hour.  This is why preachers, evangelists, Bishops, Apostles and even members of a church etc....Can't afford to "play" church. People in low positions, high positions, and no position are in need of a word of encouragement, strength, help, and healing, in these last and evil days.

The More I Study Scripture The Less I Have In Common With Modern Christianity,Who Agree?

Image
Good Tuesday morning online congregation, I certainly would not lump one of these guys with the rest of these. Anyways, this particular meme is making its way around the internet and is gathering a lot of comments some good and some not so good. One commenter stated that it is a very unfair criticism to link Pastor Rick Warren with the picture and that Saddleback has baptized over 50,000 people since 1980 and sent missions teams to every single nation in the world. What is “Reformation Charlotte” actually doing to win people to Christ? All I can say is that folks don't like for you to call out their favorite man of God. What yall think?

Why I Believe Jussie Smollett Could Be Telling The Truth?!?!?!?

Image
Online congregation this is my meek, lowly, humble opinion on the Jussie Smollett story, I don't even know if we have the full and true story yet, but for some reason, I believed him. I have no reason not to and is kind of angry that the police questioned his account. Now I'd be hurt if he supposedly exploited both the Black and gay community for his own gain. Not to take everyone down memory lane but does Ryan Lochte ring a bell? He lied too, he said he was rob at gunpoint during the Olympic but the video showed the truth, I do not remember him ever being arrested or locked up for his lie. In my opinion, the police chief's story never made sense for me. It sounded more like a pissed off chief giving his opinion before he had all of the facts. He claims to have all of this evidence although from day one he said the camera that would have shown the attack was facing in the opposite direction. The check says what the money was for and not for what the police chief insist

New Birth Missionary Baptist Church Citywide Wedding Was Everything!!

Image
Good Monday morning online congregation, yesterday was monumental at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, not just because 230 people joined the church. They had a celebration of black love with a mass wedding ceremony for couples who wanted God covenant in their lives. Special thanks to all of the sponsors who donated everything from gowns, tuxedos, rings, cake, flowers and more. Check out the clip below:

Pose Star Billy Porter Brings The House Down With His Oscars Appearance!!!

Image
Online congregation, Pose star Billy Porter who was raised in the Pentecostal church, stunned the world at the 91st Academy Awards in Los Angeles, California when he defied fashion norms by stepping out onto the red carpet in an unapologetically fabulous gown by Christian Siriano. It’s very well constructed as a dress. The creativity of the designer is on point. What do you all think?

COGIC Pastor Arrested For Shooting At His Daughter!!

Image
Online congregation an Iowa COGIC pastor is facing charges of child endangerment after police said he shot at his daughter while two children were in his vehicle. Police said Michael Cameron Sr., pastor at the Revival Center Church of God in Christ, was following his daughter when he shot at her. Another family member filmed a video from the scene and explained why Cameron was chasing after his child. "(He was) trying to keep her from getting into a fight. He came to pick her up,” the family member said while recording. The family member was upset with how many police officers were at the scene. Cameron denies firing his weapon. But Des Moines Police Sgt. Paul Parizek said it’s not unusual for a large police presence to respond when shots are fired. ( You Can Read About It Here)

Le'Andria Johnson Checked Herself Into Rehabilitation Center.

Image
Online congregation I see Le'Andria Johnson has now checked her self into a rehabilitation center, good for her.  We in the Christian FAITH community must understand how to restore our broken and fallen. Because if we come to judge one another let it be done righteously. For how we judge others is how God will eventually judge us. I'm so glad she's seeking professional help. It's not just about the alcohol, it's about the addiction and the underlying reasons for the addiction. Most treatment facilities incorporate 12 steps....and those 12 steps are miraculous. I wish her all the very best. Her honesty and candor is NECESSARY considering all the false teachers populating these churches. Let us pray earnestly for our sister.

Jessica Reedy Is Back With A Hot New Single "Can't Hold Me Back", Talk About A Come Back.

Image
Online congregation, I love this young lady music, this is some what old news for me and I'm totally surprise by it none the less. Gospel singer Jessica Reedy got her musical start early. Her grandfather, a pastor, would frequently call her up to sing after his sermons when she was only four years old, and soon she was singing everywhere she could, at church and in local talent competitions, a pattern that continued all the way through her public school years.

New Children’s Book Series Inspired By Will Smith "Fresh Prince" Character!!

Image
Online congregation Entertainment Weekly announced that Will Smith has partnered with Harper Collins Children’s Books and author Denene Millner for a three-book deal that launches with Fresh Princess, which brings to life a brand new picture-book character who will remind readers of Smith’s most iconic role. The book follows Destiny, a cool, energetic, and strong-willed girl who approaches every day with her own signature style — that is, until she moves to a brand-new neighborhood, where nothing looks quite the same as it did at her old house. Even with new challenges and new friends to make, Destiny always has a plan. She’ll stop at nothing to find the perfect chance to jump in and bring the fun to any situation.

Was 45 Pandering To Black Folks With His Raised Fist Gesture???

Image
Online congregation the above meme is being shared all over the internet of the lie that 45 did a black power fist raised during yesterday's White House reception honoring black history month. This man literally had to be sued by the Federal Government to allow black people to rent an apartment from him.That is not a black power gesture.

Online congregation, I love me some Pastor, San Franklin I am officially one of her Facebook church members. Can't wait for this live recording to be released.

Here We Go Again, Children’s Minister Suspected of Child Porn Commits Suicide!

Image
Good Saturday morning online congregation, sexual abuse has always been, but it's being exposed more and this should be the focus or major concern of leaders. I don't think it is good that this scumbag felt the only way out was to commit suicide. I DO think it was good that he was caught.  It appears that a Florida detective and children’s minister, Vernon Allan Richardson, committed suicide on February 19 while under investigation for possessing child pornography.  “Nobody in a million years would have ever believed something like this [was] possible,” Rick Baldwin, the pastor of Riverstone Community Church, told Jacksonville station News4Jax. Richardson and his wife led the children’s ministry at Riverstone.

Get Out Of Here, Two Followers of False ‘Prophet’ Joshua Holmes Does SEX Tape With Him!!!

Image
Good Friday morning online congregation, i f you're gonna make a sex tape, don’t do one like false prophet Joshua Holmes did. Joshua Holmes is teaching God's people with a whole sex video of him with two different women, and neither one of them is his wife.  The self-proclaimed false prophet has garnered a large following of fans, some of whom consider him to be Jesus in the flesh, while others consider him to be a great sex partner. False prophet Joshua Holmes has a GRAPHIC sex tape that has surfaced, which is causing his whole kingdom to crumble at the moment. This is a special message to all of the messy people in ministry, i.e Bishops, Missionaries, Deacons, Prophets, Apostles, etc, God is going to bring your kingdom down.

Growing Number Of Black Women Leaving Churches For Witchcraft!!

Image
Online congregation for most, worship is a tradition that predates all of us. There is another, more ancient art of worship, but it's not to God, The Father, The Son or The Holy Ghost but to spirits and deities that span the oceans and dates back to pre-slavery days in Africa. Over the past decade, white Millennials have embraced witchcraft in droves. Now a parallel phenomenon is emerging among black Millennials. While their exact numbers are difficult to gauge, it’s clear that African American pop culture has started to reflect the trend. In the music industry alone, there’s Beyoncé’s allusion to an African goddess in Lemonade and at the Grammys last year; Azealia Banks’s declaration that she practices brujería (a Spanish term for witchcraft); and Princess Nokia’s hit “Brujas,” in which she tells white witches, “Everything you got, you got from us.”

Get Out Of Here, Church Returns $25,000 Check to Casino: ‘We Can’t Keep This’!!!

Image
Good Wednesday morning online congregation an Alabama Baptist church that suffered building damage during a tornado is returning a $25,000 donation from a casino, citing a conflict of interest.  On January 19, the First Baptist Church of Wetumpka was hit by an “EF-2 tornado” – classified as a storm with winds of 135 miles per hour. The church was heavily damaged. The church’s adjacent youth and ministry complex will likely need to be razed and entirely rebuilt. The Poarch Band of Creek Indians, the only federally recognized Native American tribe in Alabama, owns and operates three Wind Creek casinos in the state. One is just a mile away from the First Baptist Church of Wetumpka. The tribal group sent the religious organization a check for $25,000 following the tornado. However, last Sunday, the congregation voted to return the money, as their religion doesn’t embrace gambling.

Scam Alert: Prophet Manasseh Jordan,Robot Calling Folks!!

Image
Online congregation, it seems like there is a never-ending stream of new and old swindling tricks being played to cheat people out of their money. In many cases, these are Christians who earnestly believe they are giving to a good cause. In other cases, they are just being swindled. A new swindling is now upon us and it’s a robot-call from “Saint Mary’s Prayer Center Ministry”, and they are literally asking for you to pay them to pray for you.

Thank You Le'Andria Johnson For Such A Powerful Testimony!!

Image
Good Tuesday morning online congregation, quick question for you, how did the church get away from testifying? On Sunday during service Leandria Johnson confesses to alcoholism and spending 30 days in jail. Some folks are asking should she have kept it to her self? I say no, every time we tell our testimony we give honor and glory to God, and He is pleased with that. Our story — regardless of how “spectacular” or “ordinary” we might think it is — is a story about God’s character. It is our eyewitness account of how God rescued us from sin and death through Christ and changed our life as a result. When we share our story with others we help them get to know what God is like and what He can do. Listen to Le'Andria testimony it will bless your life! ‭ “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death.” ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭12:11‬ ‭KJV ‬‬ View this post on Instagram

New Birth Missionary Baptist Church Has Just Added Jonathan Nelson To Their Staff.

Image
Online congregation is this just another business move to attract members who are infatuated with gospel stars? In this year 2019, which is so far been filled with change and progression, more sweeping change comes through the gospel industry as Gospel Music artist Jonathan Nelson has decided to relocate from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to Atlanta GA. In 2009 the lifelong native of Baltimore MD, left his hometown church Empowerment Temple to head up the music ministry of Bishop Henry Fernandez. ( you can read about that here )

RIP Bishop John Cherry, Founder Of From The Heart Ministries Worldwide.

Image
Online congregation another general has transitioned from labor to reward.  Dr. John A. Chrerry was a great Bible teacher, I grew up watching his Tuesday morning bible service for many years. Dr. John A. Cherry, Episcopal Pastor Emeritus and Founder of From the Heart Ministries Worldwide, has transitioned from labor to reward. Condolences to his family and congregations all around the globe. From The Heart Ministry is a church located in southern Prince George’s County Maryland in Suitland.

Black History Fact: How We Got, Homecoming/Family and Friends Day!

Image
Good Sunday morning online congregation, this is my 6th installment for black history month. The tradition of church homecoming appears to have begun in the South and intertwined both the African diaspora and the migration patterns of our people in search of better social and economic opportunities. A homecoming celebration is a Baptist tradition, with roots primarily in the South.

Another South Carolina Pastor Is Out Of The Pulpit!!

Image
Online congregation here we go again, a pastor who has served several churches in South Carolina, including one in Spartanburg County, has been accused of sexually assaulting a Dorman High School student at an athletic event on the school’s campus. The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office arrested Lorenzo Renard Washington, 48, of Lexington, and charged him with third-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor and second-degree attempted sexual assault with a minor. On Jan. 22, a Dorman student told school officials that a member of the booster club sexually assaulted her in a concession stand on campus, according to a statement from Lt. Kevin Bobo. The alleged attack occurred at a sporting event after normal school hours. In an incident report, a Sheriff’s Office investigator wrote that Washington inappropriately touched the victim over her clothes and that he kissed her on her neck and mouth. The school contacted law enforcement, and Washington was placed on trespass notice from a

The First Annual Christian Witches Convention Will Take Place During Easter Week!

Image
Good Saturday morning online congregation, there is no such thing in my opinion as a Christian witch 😡. Now this foolishness right here is so demonic. (This is not the frist time Ive mention this witch ) First...she say she converted from a Jehovah Witness to a witch... making her a Christian Witch??? Ms. Lady you are NOT a Christian.... as a Jehovah Witness, you didn't  believe in the person of the Holy Spirit. You don’t believe all who call on the name of the Lord will be saved and will go to Heaven. You don’t believe Jesus was God in the flesh. You don’t believe Jesus rose physically. You don’t believe in a literal Hell. That’s an occult. You are a witch that’ll burn in the lake of fire if you don’t repent and receive salvation! Lightness and darkness can’t dwell together.... There is still hope for all of you, Jesus has His arms opened wide! But do not try and combine wickedness with righteousness.

Black History Fact: How We Got The Black Church!!

Image
Good Friday morning online congregation, in my opinion, the church is a mirror of the community, it is in.  This is my 5th installment for black history month. It behooves me to see how willfully ignorant some of us can be when it comes to our community, history, and culture. I can't count the number of times black folks have come at me with this idea that there's no black church, even thou history has proved that idea to be incorrect. Black churches rose among the horrors of slavery to allow African-Americans a safe place of spiritual equality and self-expression. Today, churches all across the country continue to be the nucleus of black communities.

Elect Lady Dorinda Clark Cole People Need To Hush Up And Pray!

Online congregation why do we blame everything on the enemy? We have to take responsibility for the part WE played in the family being destroyed. The enemy didn’t do it, WE helped. Check out what Dorinda Clark Cole had to say about her family drama.

Congratulations To 1st Lady Kamilah Stevenson💋

Image
Online congregation, "All Nations Worship Assembly" is a fully functioning "Five Fold" body, under the leadership of  Dr.Matthew and Kamilah Stevenson. They have about 30 prophets that make up the company of the prophets. On February,22,2019,  Dr.Matthew Stevenson will be releasing his wife to the South Suburbs of Chicago, into her purposes for the work of the Lord. Dr. Stevenson just doesn’t know how encouraging it is to young women everywhere to see this. Congratulations Apostle K.

United Methodist Church, A Turning Point In The History Of The Denomination.

Image
Online congregation the United Methodist Church is about to gather and make important decisions about the future of their denomination and the lives of LGBTQ+ people. Later this month, a special session of the United Methodist Church’s legislative assembly may vote on whether to drop language in its rulebook that bars “self-avowed practicing homosexuals” from being ordained as ministers and forbids ministers from officiating at same-sex weddings. Many expect the conference to be a turning point in the history of the denomination. Already, an organized conservative group, the Wesleyan Covenant Association, is openly working to separate from the denomination if the rulebook is amended.

When Over 4,000 People Pray And Fast Together...This Is What Happens.

Image
Online congregation big shout out to Alfred Street Baptist Church who donated over $100,000 it had raised via a church-wide fast during the month of January — paying the debts of 34 students at Howard University. I salute this House of Faith for being God's hands and heart to these students.

Black History, The Storefront Church.

Image
Good Thursday morning online congregation, this is my 4th black history installment. A long time ago, the storefront church was a church housed in a storefront building. They were called storefronts because they were buildings that were once small stores that went out of business. The inside of the building was converted by putting in chairs and a makeshift pulpit. The storefront church also served as a hub for many poor African Americans to see leadership in an all black arena. The storefront church phenomenon is familiar to historically black American communities. During the Jim Crow era, community-based churches were a crucial source of social and spiritual support for many Southern blacks—even the poorest church was an institution that was black-led and provided much-needed space for community participation. Black churches in the South formed separate congregations and associations after the Civil War, refusing to join white-led churches, where segregated seating arrangemen

Tom Brady Says His Wife Is A 'Good Witch' And Her Rituals Help Him Win.

Image
Online congregation what yall thoughts on this? New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady while holding up the Christian banner, shocked attendees at a charity event in Boston last week after informing the crowd his wife uses witchcraft before his games. Before every game, she sets up an altar, makes him chant mantras, take drops she makes, give him protection stones, and makes him wear a special necklace. Well, she is Brazilian, they practice Yoruba, Santeria, etc...this is not too far fetched.

Harvest Bible Chapel Senior Pastor James MacDonald Has Been Fired From The Church He Founded

Image
Online congregation I am sad to read this, I really did enjoy his preaching on Christian radio. We got to be careful no pastor, Christian man or woman is above obedience to God's book, The Bible. You can preach the Word but also you must obey the truths of the Bible. Harvest from what I read and understood did have a plurality of elders, the so-called senior pastor system without a plurality does not always work. In the midst of efforts to reconcile with longtime critics, Harvest Bible Chapel fired its founder and senior pastor James MacDonald for “engaging in conduct … contrary and harmful to the best interests of the church.” Harvest elders announced this morning that they were forced to take “immediate action” on Tuesday to end his 30-year tenure. “Following a lengthy season of review, reflection, and prayerful discussion, the Elders of Harvest Bible Chapel had determined that Pastor MacDonald should be removed from his role of Senior Pastor.

Noted Pastor HB Charles Sings The Gospel!!

Image
Good Wednesday morning online congregation, now this my kind of carry-on, I'm a big ole fan and lover of old church Hymns, especially when they are song the right way.  Already recognized as one of the nation's most dynamic preachers, expositors, and author, Pastor H.B. Charles Jr. has now expands his ministry reaches into Gospel Music as he has produce his first LIVE recording...Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs. Pastor H.B. Charles, Jr. is the musically inclined and widely respected pastor of Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church. Under his leadership, Shiloh has grown to over 5,000 members, with five services held every Sunday. While Charles has operated with the title of “preacher” for decades, he can now add the title “recording artist” to his resume. His first solo album, Psalms, Hymns & Spiritual Songs, debuted in the Top-10 on the Billboard Gospel Sales chart when it was recently released. The single, “I’ll Fly Away,” is adding a dose of the traditional Gospel m

Should This Pastor Be Charged With Felony Child Abuse??

Image
Good Tuesday day online congregation, this is a developing story out of Memphis TN. According to the "cussing pastor" Thaddeus Matthew, it's been alleged that Apostle William”Bill” Anderson was arrested on Sunday for the brutal beating of his 15-year-old daughter.  It's also been alleged that the pastor has only to this point been charged with domestic violence but the daughter's mom Dr.Tonya Lyons is working to have those charges upgraded to felony child abuse.

Pastor Smokie Norful Shade The Grammy's For Giving Tori Kelly The Gospel Category!??!?!?!

Image
Online congregation, last night on Instagram, Pastor Smokie Norful open up a can of worms when he suggested that Tori Kelly shouldn’t have even been in the Grammy’s Gospel categories. The argument is that Tori Kelly is not a gospel artist, just because she made one album with Kirk Franklin. Check out what he had to say below.

Some Disappointed Fans Say They Won't Tune Into Season 4 Of ‘The Book Of John Gray’ On OWN?!?!?

Image
Good Monday morning online congregation, will yall be watching the return of OWN dramedy docu series "The Book Of John Gray"?  Some are asking how can Pastor John and Aventer Gray give spiritual advice on their OWN reality TV show, The Book of John Gray, when their own life—no pun intended—is a mess? Former supporters of the Relentless Church pastor are venting their feelings as the public anticipates the premiere of Season 4 of their docuseries on the Oprah Winfrey Network. For those who are unfamiliar with the program, the show is described by OWN as a “dramedy docu-follow hybrid about the life of John Gray and his uniquely humorous way of helping people.” Previously loyal viewers are now saying there is nothing humorous about a Christian leader and perceived moral authority stepping out on his wife, and intentionally deceiving the public, and worse, defiantly abusing the grace of God. As of today, there is no news of a renewal for the show in sight.

Black History Fact: Whatever Happened To All Night Prayer Service , Shut In, Tarrying Rooms?!?!?!

Image
Online congregation this is my 3rd black history installment, long, long time ago, there used to be, tarrying rooms, all night prayer service, and shut-in, in many Pentecostal churches, where believers would "tarry and pray" all night for the Holy Spirit. The idea of "tarrying and praying" for the Holy Spirit came out of the Pentecostal Revival which started in 1906 around the turn of the 20th century. Now there were many in the Pentecostal movement in those days that believed, preached and taught that you had to tarry to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Also, the idea of “tarrying and praying” for the Holy Spirit is rooted in Luke 24:49 and Acts 1:4, and finds a historical counterpart in the Pentecostal Revival which started in 1906 at the Azusa Street Mission in Los Angeles. There, according to His promise to restore all things, God began to pour out His Spirit upon all flesh, manifesting "the Gift" and "gifts" of the Holy Ghost - e

Investigation Reveals 700 Victims Of Southern Baptist Sexual Abuse Over 20 Years.

Image
Online congregation thanks to one of my faithful readers for sending me this item. Since leaders of the Southern Baptist Convention have declined for more than a decade to create a list of sexual predators from affiliated churches, the Houston Chronicle, and San Antonio Express-News decided to assemble one of our own. The newspapers spent nearly a year building a database of church leaders and volunteers who pleaded guilty or were convicted of sex crimes in the past 20 years. Most are now in prison or are registered sex offenders. More are from Texas than from any other state. The cases tracked by the newspapers affected more than 700 victims over 20 years. Their stories are wrenching. Victims of sexual abuse had pleaded for the SBC to act, saying it was allowing predators to move from church to church. But the SBC in 2008 rejected all proposals to produce such a registry, saying the organization could not tell its 47,000 member churches whom to hire or ordain. About 220 church
