First Lady Torri Jones Now Has The Chance To Tell Her Truth On Why Her Husband Pastor Corey Jones Asked Her For A Divorce😏😏

Image
Online congregation it's being a long time coming for the former First Lady Torri D. Jones of Tabernacle Baptist Church (TBC) in Burlington, New Jersey, to tell her truth. Two years ago, in a two-minute video (you can watch the video below) she announced with class, that her husband does not want to be married any longer and had asked for a divorce. She thanks the congregation for their love and support and all of the things she did as the First Lady with young girls and the community. In the video, you can hear grunts from the congregation saying 'The devil is a liar's. Anyways she has now agreed to be interviewed by Larry Reid Live on one of his upcoming shows.I know this interview will help our new era pastors wives.

Pastor Anthony Haynes Gets Life In Prison For Trafficking Teenage Girl After Begging Judge For Mercy 😏😏

Image
Online congregation, former leader of the Greater Life Christian Center in Toledo, Ohio, Anthony Haynes, was sentenced to life in prison Thursday even though he pleaded with U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman to have mercy on him for grooming a teenage girl to have sex with him and then going on to share her with two other pastors. “I don’t deserve life. I don’t deserve life,” Haynes argued during his sentencing for grooming his then 14-year-old victim, according to the Toledo Blade. “Like I said, I’ve been doing life for 27 months while I’ve been away from my children and this hurts ... my need today is for you to have mercy on Anthony Haynes.”

Church of England's Gets It First Black Female Bishop😏😏

Image
Good Sunday morning online congregation, Rose Hudson-Wilkin, a Chaplain to the Queen, has been appointed the First black woman Bishop in the Church of England. Rose Hudson-Wilkin has been appointed as the next Bishop of Dover, making her the Church of England's first black female bishop when she takes up the position in November. She succeeds the Rt Rev Trevor Willmott following his retirement last month. Rev Hudson-Wilkin is highly regarded as the Chaplain to the Speaker of the House of Commons, a key pastoral role in Parliament that she has held for nearly a decade 😏😏.

Should pregnant women be criminally liable for their unborn children??

Image
Online congregation this is outrageous, Marshae Jones was 5 months pregnant when she was shot in the stomach. Her fetus did not survive. On Wednesday, Jones was charged with manslaughter, with the police saying she was culpable because she started the fight that led to the shooting. I read the article and I still cannot understand how an unarmed pregnant woman, even though she started the argument, was such a threat to the other woman that she felt the need to shoot her? And why the other woman wasn’t convicted? She was unarmed and may have started the altercation but the other person was seeking to end it permanently by shooting her. Self-defense or not, the baby would not have been lost if the other person had not shot her. What yall think?

Thanks Dr Evans For Continually Dropping Spiritual Nuggets!!

Image
Good Saturday morning online congregation, there are so many names in the Bible for God and each one has a meaning for us in our lives. We need to know the redemptive names of God but the ultimate name we must know is the name of Jesus. At that name, every knee must bow. Watch as Dr. Tony Evans explains this below!

Deitrick Haddon Explains Why The Church Should Be Progressive!

Image
Online congregation, progressive or worldly? Deitrick Haddon stops by the DL Hughley Show this week to talk about how the Christian church should become more progressive. In my opinin, this is part of the reason why the church is dying now. We should not be progressive to the point that we have lost our light. We should not be worldly either.  People have gotten away from God because they’re too afraid of what man may say. As people of God, we’re not supposed to care what people say. We are not supposed to conform to the world. That’s what’s wrong with the church now. Too many people are too afraid, to tell the truth. Yes, we are supposed to invite the world into the church, but we’re not supposed to let the world change the church. We are supposed to change the world. Check out what Deitrick Haddon had to say in the clip below.

Say What, Snoop Doggy Won The ”BET 2019 Gospel Album Of The Year Award?

Image
Good Friday morning online congregation, just finding out that Rapper and songwriter Snoop Dogg won a BET Award Sunday for best gospel song, joining a list of past winners that includes gospel gatekeeper Kirk Franklin, Lecrae, and Yolanda Adams. The win surprised many viewers, who apparently did not know Snoop – a leading gangsta rapper in the 1990s – had released a gospel album. “Snoop Dogg... gospel... huh?” one person tweeted during the ceremony. What yall think of Snoop Dogg win? Snoop Dogg Takes Home Best Gospel at 2019 BET Awards https://t.co/koDpqaZuUQ pic.twitter.com/fKlkInsI5C — The Source Magazine (@TheSource) June 26, 2019

Sex In The Sanctuary??

Image
Online congregation who want to see their pastor's son performing oral copulation on another man, who happens to be sitting in the sanctified chair of his father's in the pulpit? The past two weeks, a series of videos have surfaced of two separate incidents of people engaged in homosexual sex in and outside of the church house which has sent the Christian Community into a state of nervous excitement and agitation. Many have expressed outrage and indignation that someone would desecrate a sanctuary with such a vile act. Check out what Bishop Yvette A. Flunder had to say about one of the incidents and Bishop Hezekiah Walker said about the other one.     How about we go back to preaching, how not to do things that cause us to have to be exposed...too much sugar coating of scripture. You can find more on both conversations on Larry Reid Live Facebook Page.

Evangelicals Are Fighting Over Whether It's Christian To Hold Child Migrants In Awful Conditions!!

Image
Online congregation the idiot in the White House is doing Gods work, at least evangelicals seem to think so. Funny how they are against abortions but no help of a child when it's born. This is one of the more unfeeling responses to the way migrant children are being treated that I have heard, and from a Christian leader, and it's aimed at an officer of the Southern Baptist Convention.  On Tuesday, Russell Moore, a prominent evangelical Christian theologian and president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, deplored how the U.S. is treating detained migrant children, suggesting that "we can do better than this." Jerry Fallwell Jr., a prominent evangelical leader who heads Liberty University and is famously friendly with the idiot in the White House, decided to publicly disagree, calling Moore "a bureaucrat" who has never "made a payroll" or "built an organization of any type from scratch."

Did Joel Osteen Attend The Lady Gaga LGBT Pride Event?

Image
Good Thursday morning online congregation, what yall think about this? it's not satire, this really happened. I just found out Pastor Joel Osteen has attended a Lady Gaga Pride event. Still, think he’s a “man of God”? Well, partly it’s true as he serves the god of this world, not the God of the Bible. Pastor Joel Osteen, was seen at Lady Gaga’s pride celebration at Apollo Theater on Monday night. The New York Daily News reports. Over the years, I've been heavily criticized for posting on Pastor Joel and his water down gospel, many have attacked me and accused me of being jealous of him or too “harsh”. 

Overseer Kenneth Moales Jr. And The Cathedral Of The Holy Spirit Family Seek Your Prayers.

Image
Online congregation and yet again another black megachurch is been foreclosed on, this time, it is Overseer Kenneth Moales Jr, Senior Pastor of The Cathedral Of The Holy Spirit, Bridgeport, Connecticut.  Please keep the church in your prayer this week as they go to court, and pray for their leader Overseer Kenneth Moales Jr. and the entire church family.

Willow Smith Said What, She's A Child!!

Image
Good Wednesday morning online congregation, I’m saddened and angry about this at the same time. This little girl is so mistaken.  In the latest "Red Table Talk," Willow Smith opened up about her sexuality and thoughts on "unconventional relationships." Now I like Will and Jada but come on Mama and Papa, please quit promoting little Miss Willow and let her grow up. She is a child, she does not have the wisdom or experience to speak about the things her parents put her on a platform to speak about. I stopped watching "Red Table Talk" because I was tired of Willow saying “Aa-ha” over and over like she knows what she is talking about. It's obvious she shouldn't be apart of most of the conversation taking place at that table. They have tried forever to make this young lady relevant instead of just letting her grow up. She works my nerves.

🛑How Do You Handle A Conflict With Your Pastor Or Spiritual Leader??

Image
Online congregation, here we go with another interesting Tuesday Night Bible Study, with COGIC Bishop Elijah Hankerson. What do you do if you feel called to ministry? You go to your pastor for guidance on how to get started. Then he tells you, "ministry is DEFINITELY NOT your area; you need to find another means to serve God."    If you are a pastor, what strategies do you personally use, to cope with people leaving your church?   Some doors open up in another city and you are led by God to leave town. But, your Bishop just came off a fast and he says, "God told me to tell you to stay or you'll be cursed?" What do you do?    You are a pastor and you have a few disgruntled members who are keeping confusion going. You've had numerous meetings with them, but the confusion continues. Do you have yet another meeting; or address it openly from the pulpit in your upcoming sermon?  These and other scenarios will be discussed on TUESDAY NIGHT LIVE 6/25/19 @

Is Anything Wrong With This? A Church Employee Dresses Up in Drag and Reads During Children’s Hour In Worship Service.

Image
Online congregation what do yall think about a "church" that allows this or condones this? Would you say it's not the TRUE CHURCH?  The building caretaker of a Presbyterian church in Cincinnati, Ohio dressed up in drag to read a book in scheduled children’s time during the Sunday, June 16 worship service. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Dan Davidson dressed up as “Sparke Leigh” complete with a purple dress, makeup, high heels, and “a glitter beard” and stood at the Mount Auburn Presbyterian Church door greeting members and visitors.

What Would You Do?

Image
Good Tuesday morning online congregation, tell me how would you handle the above situation? Personal, I think every musician should get paid, but as soon as you tell a church that you don’t play for free they’ll say “what happened to playing to the lord and not unto man.”

Jesus Take The Wheel,Pastor Charged With Sex Crimes Involving A Mentally Incapacitated Man.

Image
Online congregation here we go again, police said a West Virginia pastor has been charged with sex crimes involving a mentally incapacitated man.( You Can Read About It Here )  The Bluefield Daily Telegraph reported a Mercer County grand jury indicted Anderson H. Martin II last week on charges of third-degree sexual assault and second-degree sexual abuse. Bluefield Police Sgt. K.L. Adams told the newspaper that the victim is 25, but has the mental capacity of a 10- to 12-year-old. Adams said Martin is the pastor at Greater Tabernacle of Faith Apostolic Church. In a criminal complaint, Adams said Martin told police he was trying to tell the man how to wash himself and denied touching him. It wasn't immediately clear whether Martin has an attorney.

Tyler Perry Delivers Powerful, Uplifting Speech to Standing Ovation😘😘

Image
Good Monday morning online congregation, last night at the BET Awards Show, Tyler Perry brought the audience to its feet with an empowering speech as he accepted the Ultimate Icon Award. Awesome job Mr. Perry! May the good Lord continue to bless you and your family.  Check out what Tyler had to say in the clip below.

How Can A Pastor Be So Arrogant To Say That They Can Do Anything Under The Sun And Still Be Book?

Image
Online congregation, something is wrong with this picture, what this pastor said in the below video clip has really irritated, annoyed an angered me. How in the world can you be a representer of Christ and be so arrogant to say you can do anything and it will not get your bag stopped? Vondell Robinson, the Senior Pastor at The Prayer Center, in Elkton, MD said in a live video that basically he can do whatever he wants to and he'll still be book, his bag can't be stopped. Come on church leaders, we got to do better, we got to stop these puffed up men from thinking that they can do anything they want to do in the world and still be invited into the pulpit.

College Of Prophets, How Can You Have A Generational Gap Panel Discussion With Only One Side😏😏?

Image
Online congregation what is the generation gap and does it exist in today’s church? Are today’s youth really that different from their parents? What are the implications for reaching young people with the gospel? In my humble opinion "The College of Prophets" is going nowhere because the main people at the helm Sinegal and Carn are NOT highly accountable, neither are they Biblical Scholars. It's no secret that the generation gap in the church community seems to be widening daily, but how can you find a solution with only one side at the table? It's obvious that it is more of a cultural gap than anything else. The Baby Boomers and the Millennials are in a struggle for power in business, religious, and political cultures. One of the tools the devil attempts to use to destroy local congregations of the body of Christ is the "generational gap" to set the old against the young and vice versa, with one side doing all the talking.

COGIC Bishop Elijah Hankerson Has Been Summoned To The Chamber!

Image
Online congregation will yall please join me in congratulating COGIC Evangelism President Dr. Elijah Hankerson for taking his Tuesday night live bible studies to another level. Personal I enjoy his Tuesday night live bible discussion, I would like to encourage him to keep reaching outside of the 4 walls of the church, I believe today's trend shows that social media is the coming future for all teaching setting. One of my favorites live was when he discussed the accusation that some Bible characters were homosexual. Anynow today Bishop Hankerson posted the following to his Facebook page: When God gave me Tuesday Night Live as an additional means to "evangelize the world" (Mark 16:15) "edify the believer," (Ephesians 4:11-13) I had no idea it would impact so many lives. Chairman, Bishop John Henry Sheard, and the Board of Bishops of the Church Of God In Christ, Inc. have taken note and has summoned me to "the chamber" to do an hour-long teachin

Good Saturday morning online congregation, on Thursday, June 20th the founder of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship, Bishop Paul Sylvester Morton Sr. did some of his best preaching and singing at the 105th Holy Convocation for the 1st Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of Southern California.  Check out the video below.

Good Call By Harvard For Rescinding Its Admission Offer To Racist Kyle Kashuv😏😏

Image
Online congregation, a white teen that called African-American athletes “jock n*ggers” and wrote “kill all the f*cking Jews” has unsuccessfully attempted to defend himself after Harvard chose to rescind his admission over gross displays of bigotry. 18-year-old Kyle Kashuv, who made the racist remarks when he was 16 years old, is arguing that who he was back then is not the same person he identifies himself as today. Kashuv, a survivor of the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre in Parkland, Fla., claims he has made a complete about-face while condemning his own language as “egregious,” and “callous’. According to the Washington Times and Huffington Post , classmates said the well-known gun rights activist repeatedly used the N-word. Article Here By Rebecca Johnson~ EEW Magazine  In my opinion, this kids was sixteen years old when he made these racial slurs he knew better, plain and simple. When you choose the behavior you choose the consequences,  and not

New Alabama Law Permits Church To Hire Its Own Police Force😕😕

Image
Good Friday morning online congregation, Alabama passed a new law this week that grants a church the right to set up its own law enforcement agency to cover its sanctuary, seminary, and school campuses. Some critics charge that the church has a history of racism and homophobia. Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed into law Wednesday a measure granting the Briarwood Presbyterian Church the right to set up its own law enforcement agency to cover its sanctuary, seminary and sprawling school campuses, despite criticism that the measure was unconstitutional. “Briarwood is one of the largest and most influential churches in the entire Bible Belt and has a long history of racism. In 1973, 260 churches with congregations totaling 41,000 members split from the Presbyterian Church in the United States. The mostly Southern congregations seceded from the larger PCUS after the PCUS decided that it would allow black and white parishioners to worship together."

"Do You Support Reparations?"

Image
Online congregation do you guys support reparations? That's a yes for me,  I personally think that monetary reparations are necessary. The issue is not slavery, specifically. The issue is stolen black wealth that has taken many forms over many years. If reparations are going to happen, which I doubt, they need to be reframed as compensation. The fact of the matter is reparations are about REPAIRS to the system that has been created to steal from a certain population of the American people! We intrinsically know those are BLACK and BROWN people! You don't have to go back 100's of years! You can look at Puerto Rico and see how they were forced to go without electricity for almost 1 year!!!! The wealth that was lost due to the idiot in the White House racism must be repaid and the system must be repaired as every other property of the United States. You can look at Ferguson, MO and the exploitation of the Black population by police giving out tickets and fines so exorbita

Cracker Barrel Won’t Let Pastor’s Church Meet in Restaurant😮😮.

Image
Good Thursday morning online congregation, you gotta be pretty bad to be turned away from the cracker barrel. They're known for their discriminatory practices. A Cracker Barrel restaurant in Cleveland, Tennessee has rejected an upcoming gathering of the All Scripture Baptist Church headed up by anti-LGBTQ preacher Grayson Fritts, a former Knox County Sheriff’s Office detective whose sermon calling for the government-led execution of gay people recently went viral.

Once Again, 45's Spiritual Advisor Paula White Prays A Useless Prayer😆😆

Image
Online congregation the idiot in the White House spiritual adviser Ms. Jezebel herself Paula White, said in her powerless opening prayer before his campaign kickoff rally yesterday in Orlando, Fla., that “demonic networks” have aligned themselves against her president. And she wants those demonic networks that have aligned itself against his purpose, to be broken, and to be torn down in the name of Jesus.  She declared that the idiot in the White House will overcome every strategy from hell and every strategy from the enemy, she added, according to a video of her remarks. She who has no power said that she secures his calling, she secures his purpose, she secures his family, and she secures victory in the name which is above every name … the name of Jesus Christ,” she said ending her prayer. The idiot in the White House on Tuesday kicked off his 2020 reelection campaign at a rally.

Le'Andria Johnson Is Joining Iyanla Vanzant On Her “Acts of Faith Remix” Tour!!!!!

Image
Good Wednesday morning online congregation, Iyanla said in a Facebook post that acclaimed Grammy and Stellar Award-winning artist, Le’Andria Johnson, has done the work and she's joining the Acts of Faith Remix Tour — a LIVE stage event — as their featured guest artist in Brooklyn 6/19, Philadelphia 6/20, and Newark 6/21. According to one commentator, Iyanla practices a lot of beliefs that go against our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. So though this may seem like a moment to congratulate her it’s really a time to pray for her even more. Not every gig with a popular name is God sent. Congregation do yall agree with this commentator comment?

Get Out Of Here, ‘Wives Are Not Equal To Their Husbands Because Husband Means Master’ – Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Online congregation this is an old post from Christ Embassy Facebook page, which is causing a heated debate. The article claims that husbands are masters over their wives and wives are not equal to their husbands. Check out the article and tell me what you think?

Will Steve Harvey Be Forced To Cancel His Sand And Soul Festival In The Dominican Republic😏😏?

Image
Good Tuesday morning online congregation, a lot of people are headed to the Dominican Republic in October for Steve Harvey Sand and Soul Festival and he has not talked about these incidents once. Why is that? Steve Harvey is hosting a jazz festival in the Dominican Republic in October at the same resort where at least two US tourists have died in the last year. The third-annual Steve Harvey Sand and Soul Festival is taking place from October 10 to October 14 at the all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Punta Cana. The resort recently made headlines after two families came forward to say their relatives died while staying at the resort within the last year. You can read about it here:

Joel and Victoria Osteen Son Jonathan Makes His Debut In Houston.

Image
Online congregation for the first time ever, Jonathan Osteen delivered a message on the Lakewood Church stage usually occupied by his father, Joel Osteen. Jonathan Osteen stepped into his parent's shoes on Saturday night, speaking for the first time. The 24-year-old son of Joel and Victoria Osteen spoke from the pulpit with a Father’s Day message at services at 7 Saturday evening and on Sunday morning at 8:30 and 11. The University of Texas graduate traveled with his parents recently on their Nights of Hope tour. Check out Jonathan preaching at the 1:08:48 mark in the video.

When They See Us😡😡!

Image
Online congregation have yall watched this film? 'When They See Us' it has been the most-watched series on Netflix in the US every day since it premiered on May 31. Even if you’re afraid, you should watch it. Even when you cry, watch it. Even when you get mad, keep watching. It’s not merely a movie, it’s real life. A real “justice” system failed real boys. And guess what? It happens every day, still. Many have exhibited in the ignorance that privilege affords and though it may be comfortable, the apathy it produces ain’t pretty. Films like this can break our world in two, helping us see that equality is a myth for most. Thank you Ava DuVernay making something that’s hard to see. Maybe it’ll create a world in which it’s easier for brown boys and girls to live.

🛑Are Wives Supposed To Submit To Their Husband???

Image
Good Monday morning online congregation, here we go again with another great Tuesday night Bible discussion, with COGIC Bishop, Elijah Hankerson. W e've been hearing for umpteen of years how wives are supposed to "submit" to their head. But when are THE HUSBANDS gonna do the SAME to THEIR HEAD????? (Christ). Wives are not supposed to blindly submit to the husband, especially if he does not know God. The Bible does not just say, "Husbands love your wives." Instead, it says, "Husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the church and gave himself for her (church)" Ephesians 5:25. So, how can  wives realistically submit to a husband if he doesn't study the Word enough to fully comprehend just how much Christ loved the church?"  Below is the Tuesday night live Bible discussion bullet points:   Does a husband have the "final say" in a household? Was this a command from God or were the apostles expressing a cultural norm of their ti

🛑Can A Christian Be A Mason?

Image
Good Saturday morning online congregation, I don't know how in the world, I missed this controversial Tuesday night bible discussion by COGIC Bishop Elijah Hankerson. Can a Christian be a Freemason, Shriner, or Eastern Star and be right with Jesus Christ? It's disgusting how Freemasonry is also another dangerous infiltration in Christian churches. It's done through pastors and deacons who are Freemasons. Note that many of these Masonic pastors openly admit they are Freemasons. The answer to the question is absolutely not because the two are irreconcilable. Amos 3:3 warns that can the two walk together except they be agreed. Is Masonry demonic? Does the Bible condemn “secret societies?" These were the many questions that were discussed in this TUESDAY NIGHT LIVE!

Kirk Franklin Is First Artist To Ever Top All Five Gospel Charts Simultaneously!

Online congregation congratulations to Gospel Music Gatekeeper Kirk Franklin for becoming the first artist to simultaneously top all five Billboard gospel charts: Top Gospel Albums, Hot Gospel Songs, Gospel Airplay, Gospel Streaming Songs and Gospel Digital Song Sales.

Shame On Black Pastors In Birmingham Alabama For Going Against The Poor Community Of That City.

Image
Online congregation where were these same folks when the mothers of this city were calling for justice for their children?  Planned Parenthood has more to offer than abortions. Some of them don't even do abortions in the office. It's mainly for people who can't afford to go to the doctor the traditional way. Planned Parenthood is cost effective for people who may not have any insurance. They also offer services for men. An interdenominational group of Birmingham-area pastors and clergy on Thursday held a press conference at the site of the under-construction Planned Parenthood abortion facility in the Magic City, with faith leaders of different genders and races coming together to say “all lives matter.”

Is Systemic Racism A Distraction For Christians??

Image
Good Friday morning online congregation, should Christians address systemic racism? According to Pastor G Craige Lewis Facebook post, we in the house of faith should not focus on Systemic racism mind you persists in our schools, offices, the court system, police departments, and elsewhere. Why? Think about it when the majority occupy most positions of decision-making power, people of color will always have a difficult time getting a fair shake, let alone getting ahead. I disagree with the say nothing do nothing approach to this issue which Pastor Lewis is seemly suggesting, it's the cowards way out. Pastor G. Craige Lewis: Systemic racism can be a distraction. The powers that be are controlling a narrative thru the media, that is pushing a race war to basically end our existence. We must focus on the freedoms we have and pray for others. We can’t pay back racism with counter racism. Many of those that were enslaved before us prayed for our freedoms and hoped that we would have

Is Common Law Marriage Acceptable Before God?

Image
Good Thursday morning online congregation, most of us know what common law marriage is. This happens when two people, who are afraid of commitment, shack up for so long that they become legally recognized as husband and wife, by the government and other people. These types of couples tend to consider themselves to be married when it suits them, and not married when it doesn’t.  It is a false commitment or an oxymoron at best because you cannot be “committed” in a non-committed relationship. "shacking up," is the state of an unmarried couple living together as if they are husband and wife. Anyhow the situation suggests that a shacking couple is a couple having sex, or facing the temptation to have sex.  The below post was found in one of my Facebook groups tell me what yall think; is common-law marriage acceptable before God?

Your Destiny Is Chosen By God, But Its Fulfillment Is Decided By You 💋

Dr. Munroe says in his message that making it to the end of the destiny that God has put in front of us is, our responsibility and no one else's. The future is nothing but the end trapped in the beginning. Our success has been guaranteed all we need to do is to make it Manifest. Check the message out below.

Here We Go Again, Ex-Preacher Sentenced To 10 Years In Prison For Embezzling $800K.

Image
Good Wednesday morning online congregation, here we go again, a former minister was sentenced to ten years in prison Monday for stealing more than $800,000 from Houston First Baptist Church, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg announced. “There was a sad abuse of trust,” Assistant District Attorney Lester Blizzard said. “People looked up to him, and now he is being held accountable for his actions.” Jerrell Altic, 40, pleaded guilty to a first-degree felony of Aggregate Theft. He used the church’s money for among other things, groceries, overseas travel with his family, and tuition for a doctoral degree from Lancaster Bible College, according to court records. Blizzard said Altic had been cooperative with authorities and repaid more than $500,000.

🛑Is Having Weight Loss Surgery A Sin?

Image
Good Monday morning online congregation, here we go again with another great topic for a Tuesday night bible study. Courtesy of COGIC Bishop Elijah Hankerson,lll.  Is any kind of cosmetic surgery a sin: "tummy tucks," implants, feet, teeth, facelift, etc? Is God against Botox? Since the Word hates every false way (Psalm 119:104) are false eyelashes, colored contact lenses, hair dye, wigs, extensions, etc a sin? Is it wrong for men to wear girdles or for anyone to wear a body-shaper? These and other questions will be discussed on Tuesday Night Live, 6/11/19 at 6 Central!

Does Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta, Make Black Women Look Desperate For A Husband And Shows The Black Church In A Bad Light 😈😈?

Image
Online congregation Lifetime has put a contemporary spin on a literary classic with Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta, which reimagines Jane Austen’s iconic novel as a church-based drama in present-day Georgia.  Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta stars Jackee Harry (Sister, Sister) as preacher’s wife Mrs. Bennet, the author of a self-help book on how to find the perfect husband. Because of this, she isn’t pleased that her own daughters remain single. Anyhow some readers of EEW Magazine, the nation’s leading publication for women of faith and color, are irate. Why? What is all the fuss about? Well, according to the film’s harshest critics, it makes black women look desperate for a husband and shows the black church in a bad light—as if it were only a place where lonely women go to snag an eligible bachelor, instead of a destination to worship God, learn His word, and be a positive force for change in the community. “We are not that desperate!” said Colleen, a 36-year-old African-American A

Why Does God Discipline Some Christians with Death?

Image
Online congregation Retired Author and preacher John Piper receive lots of spiritual questions through his website “Desiring God.” Recently, he responded to a question from a reader about why God would “punish” some of his children by ending their lives early. Some in the online Christian community ain't feeling what Pastor John had to say on the subject.....saying that this is not good theology, in fact, it's HORRIBLE theology and anti-Christ. Death does NOT come from God. Death is the enemy of God. Christ revealed that God restores and does not destroy. Someone else stated that the twisted theology that Piper and crew are speaking of here is what has led to so much of the power hungry, abusive, and sin speck finding fear that is so prevalent in the church. This is what makes the church look like we are not loving... because we worship a God who isn't loving. What yall think?

Would Jesus Attend A Pride Parade??

Image
Online congregation what yall think? In response to a tweet by a Catholic bishop, The View co-host Sunny Hostin said she knows Jesus would attend a pride parade “with pride,” further contending that “being at a pride parade would be much safer for a child than it has been to be in a Catholic church for many years. Sunny Hostin, co-host of the daytime talk show “The View,” slammed the Catholic bishop for his anti-LGBTQ tweet he posted last weekend. Yahoo! Entertainment reports that during Monday’s show, Hostin brought up the bishop’s tweet, which called on Catholics not to participate in events during June’s Pride Month. Tobin added that he felt the festivities were “especially harmful to children” and “are contrary to the Catholic faith.”

Should Christians Listen To Joel Osteen??

Image
Online congregation is Joel Osteen a false teacher? Should Christians listen to Joel Osteen? What exactly does he believe and what does he teach? In the below video this guy discusses 6 facts about the teaching of Joel Osteen to provide a simple way for us to assess whether or not we should or should not be listening to Joel Osteen.
