United Methodists Float Plans To Split Denomination😒😒.

Image
Online congregation good Monday morning, an LGBT advocacy group has introduced a proposal for the United Methodist Church's General Conference aimed at splitting the UMC into a four new denominations. UM-Forward submitted their proposal called the New Expressions Worldwide Plan that, if approved by General Conference next year, will create four different Methodist denominations. The new plan is being introduced as a way to resolve the years-long divisive debate within the UMC over the mainline Protestant denomination’s stance on LGBT issues.

It Was Reported To Me That Kanye West Is Done With Secular Music, and Will Only Make Gospel 😏😏

Image
Online congregation it looks like Kanye West has truly been reborn, spiritually and musically, and the worldly Yeezy as we know him maybe no more. Kanye's new album Jesus Is King is set to drop today Sunday (Sept. 29), but a select few have already been privy to the project. I've learned from those who've heard the LP that Kanye reunites the Clipse on the album's final song.

While Speaking In Tongues Pastor Perry Stones Stops To Check His Phone😅😅.

Image
Online congregation good Sunday morning, freedom of religion is one thing, but do people seriously follow folks like this charlatan? The video is both sad and hysterical. I always thought Perry to be somewhat of a con man. The Friendly Atheist shared a video of Perry Stone leading a service at Omega Center International in Tennessee this Thursday, and it shows Perry Stone praying and rattling off gibberish, as he repeatedly checks his phone. At one point, he’s seemingly distracted by the phone so much that his prayers melt into a prolonged moan.

Pastor Donnie McClurkin's 60th Birthday Celebration, Why Do The Pew Sitters, Feel The Need To Pay To Attend, The Senior Pastor Birthday Party??

Image
Online congregation maybe yall can answer the following question" why does the pew-sitters feel the need to pay to attend the senior pastor birthday celebration?" Someone sent me the above flyer, via messenger, asking me what I thought about the idea of charging a fee to attend a pastor birthday celebration? To be honest, it has become quite fashionable in some circles for churches to have big birthday celebrations for their man/woman of God....then charge the pew-sitters a fee to attend. It's nothing new, and it's not a surprise. Anyhow on November 16, 2019, Perfecting Faith Church will be celebrating their Pastor Donnie McClurkin 60th Birthday at the Reverend Dr. Floyd H. Flake church with an All-Star Concert Tribute and they are inviting you to join them. Tickets for the event went on sale last Monday.

It Was Reported To Me That Bishop George Bloomer Was Fired From "The Word Network" For Stealing!

Image
Online congregation this Bishop Bloomer thing is getting interesting, to say the least. Ex-COGIC Pastor Earl Carter has now jumped into the conversation with an uploaded Youtube video that is claiming Bishop George Bloomer were indeed fired from the Word Network for stealing, and that Bloomer tried to use the race card as his defense. Go to the 40:00 mark in the below video, were  Carter tells how Bishop Bloomer side hustle cost him his job.  Carter said  Bloomer was caught bringing some guests on the network at a reduced price and got whack by the owner.  

Marvin Winans Celebrates Perfecting Church 30 Year Celebration and Gala😐😐.

Image
Online congregation good Saturday morning, according to EURWeb , Pastor Marvin L. Winans and the Perfecting Church Choir shined brightly as musical guests at the recent Democratic Presidential Debates held at the Fox Theater in Detroit, Michigan. Winans created special arrangements of, “America the Beautiful” and the “National Anthem” that was performed and aired live on CNN’s domestic and international platforms. Pastor Winans has now turned his attention to the Perfecting Church 30 Year Celebration and Gala on Friday, October 11. The black-tie affair is being held at the historic Henry Ford Museum 20900 Oakwood Blvd. located in Dearborn, Michigan. 

The Black Secret Society Founded To Defend White-Supremacy And Frustrate Black Freedom.

Image
Online congregation interesting article, read and re-read. I have been hearing about this when I read up on Marcus Harvey and WEB DuBious. What yall think? Is there a "Secret Society" to defend "White Supremacy" and frustrate Black Freedom? It needs more investigation about authenticity but would not doubt the possibility of it being true. There is no actual proof or smoking gun. Just observation and speculation.

Man Talks Being A Pastor While Still Appearing In Adult Gay Films!!

Image
Online congregation good Friday morning, now I thought I've heard and seen it all until this came across my newsfeed.  This guy Ali Savage (google name at your own risk) who performs in gay adult films as well as preaches from a pulpit on Sunday explains how he does both. He also goes into detail about how who we are physically attracted to has nothing to do with our faith or our capabilities as members of society. Video here:

Mattel's New Gender-neutral Dolls Can Be A Boy, Girl, Both Or Neither😕😕

Image
Online congregation what's yall thoughts about this? We hear that toys are toys and boys can play with dolls and labels shouldn't matter, but for the first time, there is now a gender-neutral doll where kids get to play around with gender expression and just PLAY. For the first time, gender-nonconforming kids can see themselves in a doll. For the first time, a toy is available to help start the conversation about gender and cultural norms. Or you know, just to play with and have fun. So kudos to Mattel for their commitment to evolving with the times and creating opportunities for children to see themselves represented, and more importantly, to see representations of people not like them.

Calling The Called Preaching Competition😒😒

Image
Online congregation good Thursday morning to you all. So Dr. Cindy Trimm has done went and got her self a new gig in South Africa.  A new reality TV series, "Calling the Called", which talent-scouts pastors, has been launched. The Calling The Called preacher talent search is the first South African TV program focusing on uncovering talented preachers. Calling The Called showcases gifted, yet undiscovered preachers of the gospel from townships to rural areas, suburbia and beyond. As a first of its kind, this show will highlight existing potential pulpit talent that exists in South Africa, yet has been ignored for so long. Almost 80% of South Africans subscribe to Christianity, indicating an appetite for fresh and innovative content directed at this demographic. For 13 weeks, contestants will be put through “rigorous challenges” for over 1 million worth of prizes, which includes a new car, a television contract and a chance to study towards a degree in theology or related

Should Kanye West Be Allowed To Promote Himself In The Church?

Image
Online congregation Pastor G. Craige Lewis says Kanye West entering the church with his blasphemy is the fault of pastors; the gatekeepers are letting him in why is Kanye West emulating the church? Why has the church opened itself up to allow blasphemy to enter in? Should Kanye West be allowed to promote himself in the church? Is he genuine in his claims of being born again? Why are so many pastors and churches deceived by this? In this interview, G. Craige Lewis discusses the deception of Kanye West and his plight to grow his influence in the church!

Congrats To My Internet Pastor Dr. E Dewey Smith😁😁

Image
Online congregation good Wednesday morning to you all.  Congratulation is in order this morning for my internet Pastor Dr. E Dewey Smith who has been selected as an Inductee for the “National Black College Alumni” Hall of Fame!! The National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame Foundation, Inc. is a 501(C)3 organization founded in 1986 by members of the National Council of Alumni Associations.

Relevant Magazine Founder ‘stepping away’ from role!

Image
Online congregation I mentioned this item in a post on yesterday. The founder and CEO of Relevant magazine is “stepping away” from the evangelical Christian publication just days after several former staffers raised concerns about his past behavior, which they described as racially insensitive and toxic. Relevant founder Cameron Strang announced his leave of absence in a post published on the magazine’s website on Monday afternoon (Sept. 23). He did not dispute the accounts of former staffers and apologized for his past actions, which he repeatedly described as toxic.

Bishop George Bloomer Claims He Quit The Word Network Because Of A Retweeted Picture by Kevin Adell, Owner Of The Word Network!

Image
Online congregation on last night Larry Reid Live, Larry had Bishop George Bloomer on the platform to explain his hasty departure from the "Word Network". According to Bishop Bloomer the owner of the Word Network, Kevin Adell, who just happens to be white, retweeted the above picture to his many followers. Bishop Bloomer claims that he told the network owner on several occasions that the picture wasn't good and not to do it again, but he did it again. Bishop Bloomer says he quit, while others say he was fired or pushed out. The four men of color in the picture are George Bloomer, Creflo Dollar, Kirk Franklin, and Joshua Holmes.  Bishop Bloomer also said that Adell referred to him as “Tattoo”, the little man assistant from Fantasy Island.

COGIC Bishop Patrick L. Wooden Sr, Call Out Cam Newton For Dressing Like A Woman.

Image
Online congregation good Tuesday morning to you all, now this just blows my mind, North Carolina COGIC Bishop Patrick Wooden really get up in the pulpit to just rant. Not preach, but rant. I just don’t understand. They said that he spends time before each sermon sharing monologue and disdain for current events. This past Sunday it was for his disdain for Cam Newton’s non-masculine attire and all things queer. Sir, ranting ain’t preaching.  “Body built like a Greek god; 2 percent body fat; muscles everywhere.” I bet if Cam was giving all his money to the church. Then he’ll be the faithful giver. I’m so sick of y’all church folks with your judgment selves. Jesus was compassionate and loved all. Some of all just like the people who caught the woman in adultery. Pointing out someone else sins. Without checking to examine yourself.

Pastor William McDowell "The Cry" A Live Worship Experience.

Image
Online congregation thanks to Pastor William McDowell, and so many others for another gift of inspiration and encouragement to all of us out here praying for a move of God in our generation like we have never seen before. The award-winning gospel singer and pastor, William McDowell has released his latest project, The Cry on this past Friday in hopes the new album will help others cultivate a cry of desperation, inviting God’s presence to stay with his people and igniting a global revival. Love his music.

Relevant Founder Cameron Strang Accused Of Creating Racially Insensitive Workplace.

Image
Online congregation good Monday morning, so I’ve been following this story and the collaborating accounts from former employees following Andre Henry’s expose . While the difficulties appear to center on race perhaps the bigger issue here is the marketing of Christianity based on worldly dispositions and leadership. It would seem that running a Christian company would look different from what transpired here. Sadly, it’s not the first time I’ve heard of a Christian company that puts out Christian material operating in such a manner. Cameron Strang, the founder, and CEO of Relevant Media Group found himself under attack from a host of former employees last week who accused him of behavior they said was racially insensitive and changed depending on his mood. Relevant Media publishes a Christian bimonthly geared toward young white evangelicals, as well as a website and a network of podcasts. It was the allegation of racial insensitivity that came in a Twitter barrage on Wednesday (

Have The Word Network Fired Bishop George Bloomer??

Image
Online congregation good Sunday morning, here is a story that is still developing. Rumor has it that Bishop George Bloomer has been fired from the Word Network for speaking out against Pastor Benny Hinn and the prosperity gospel....some are saying that it could be a political move. In my opinion, the Word Network should have came under fire early this year for allowing false prophet Joshua Holmes to be interview on the network. ( You can read about that here) At that time some in the African American community along with my self were saying that Bishop Greg Davis and Bishop George Bloomer both should have been removed from the network for not screening, examining, or vetting the false prophet Joshua Homes before allowing him to appear on the network. Holmes who had at that time a leaked viral video recording showing himself indulging in explicit sexual activity with two women who were not his wife. Update: Bishop George Bloomer Speaks On His Departure From "The Word Netw

Church Votes Unanimously To Kick Out Lesbian Couple.

Image
Online congregation I know I’m a little late to this party about Gracewood Baptist Church. I just read the letter that was written to the gay couple that was unanimously voted out by the staff that they would not be allowed to return to that church. I was shocked to see the wording in that letter. To each their own, but I wonder if they would do the same to someone who wasn't gay but living a hellish lifestyle? Some online folks believe the church did it the right way by letting them attend hoping Gods word and fellowship would bring them to repentance. What are your thoughts? Did the church handle this in the right way?

Le'Andria Johnson Ministries Presents....

Image
Online congregation good Saturday morning to you. Back in the days of old, Christians who professed Christ as Lord and was serving in ministry, that publicly sinned, were “sat down,” meaning they were relieved of duties for a period of time to get themselves together. Gospel singer Le’Andria Johnson might have benefited from such a practice. According to the above flyer, Le'Andria Johnson just might be getting ready to revised her now-defunct ministry.  I am very proud of her for the work she did for herself. 

Isn't New Birth Church Considered Good Grounds To Sow A Seed?

Image
Online congregation good Friday morning, I'm going on record and say that I have always disliked prosperity teaching & money lines for the highest bidder in church for personal gain. It makes me uncomfortable for several reasons, but I think either people don’t realize or don’t care how much EFFECTIVE ministry cost. It cost to do ministry. Never has a generation boasted so much &  produced so little. It looks like New Birth church Senior Pastor Jamal Bryant had to do a little correcting via Instagram Wednesday evening.  T.I. and KillerMike was on a podcast Wednesday speaking their dislike of the church seeking a second offering during Sunday morning service. In my opinion, New Birth has done a lot of great things recently in helping and feeding the community, even the Bahamas. Would it have been so bad to sow an offering, even if it was a second offering? It’s definitely good ground to sow and it would help with the future community projects they have planned. Not

Y'all Remember This Story? Welp, Here's An Update.

Image
Online congregation according to Larry Reid it looks like the members of Inspirational Baptist Church where Victor Couzens is the pastor are just now finding out online that their church is up for sale. Almost a year after Larry Reid interviewed Andrea Garrison and 8 women and one man who came forward on the show to alleged sexual relationships with the church leader. People have left, employees laid off, daycare dissolved, and now 9 payments behind. Allegedly the church is in his name and he paid 1 Milly for it but asking for 8 Milly?   Yall can read about it here

Fantasia Barrino Interview On The Breakfast Club, Just So We’re Clear, The Man Isn’t The Head Of The Household, The Husband Is!

Image
Online congregation I've fixed Fantasia Barrino blooper she made yesterday while interviewing on the Breakfast Club. She errored in her comment when she said that the man is the head of the household, she really meant the husband is the head of the household. Headship of husbands is a controversial issue. Headship is hotly debated in church and culture, often misunderstood, misinterpreted, and abused. A lot of online folks are giving Fantasia a hard time over her blooper. Fantasia has not forgotten about her gospel roots and is vocal about her serious relationship with Jesus Christ—something that influences her career and marriage. The GRAMMY® Award-winning vocalist stopped by Power 105.1 in New York City for a candid chat about how she learned to submit to her husband and why prayer is so important to her. The prayer conversation began with the 35-year-old North Carolina native asking “The Breakfast Club” co-host DJ Envy if he ever prayed with his wife. When the popular syn

What Constitute A Best Preacher? Who Decides The Best Preacher?

Image
Online congregation good Wednesday morning, tell me what you guys think about this, the "best preacher???" Bishop T.D.Jakes is currently working on a special to identify the best preacher we’ve never heard. He's asking if you know a great preacher or would like to nominate one, just click the link in the bio and tell them more. Tag a preacher, even if it’s yourself. For me, this seems weird for some reason. God has called preachers to be faithful rather than successful. What constitutes a best preacher?

Y’all see this?? Who Can Vouch For Kanye West Discipleship??

Image
Online congregation I'm shaking my head at the number of church folks jumping on the Kanye West bandwagon. Western Christianity loves celebrities. We often feel we need big names to make the Gospel more attractive.  Don't get me wrong, I have no doubt about the power of God to convict and change even the worst sinner, but I also know that in these days we will see false teachers. I'm not gonna just jump on the bandwagon because Kanye releases a gospel album or "preaches" a sermon. I've seen plenty of people who call themselves a preacher who didn't live a life that had any resemblance to a Christlike life. I'll withhold my opinion for a while. God will not be mocked. If it's real, we will see it. If it's not real, we will see that too. Last night during a Facebook live Q&A Damon Richardson the founder of UrbanLogia Ministries, a highly sought after speaker, Bible teacher, and Christian Urban Apologist, pointed out some interesting stu

Dallas Megachurch Puts On Mass Wedding for Dozens of Cohabiting Couples.

Image
Online congregation for the past decade, this Texas pastor has stressed God-honoring relationships among his 9,000-member congregation and sought to resist the cultural forces making living together an acceptable substitute for walking down the aisle. When couples join the 90-day program, Concord Church offers them 11 weeks of intensive marriage counseling, a married couple to mentor them for the next year, and an all-expenses-paid wedding ceremony at the end of the journey—thanks to artists, musicians, hairstylists, and financial benefactors within the congregation.

Why are churches placing men, who are so candid about their current brokenness, in positions of leadership?

Image
Online congregation what are you guys’ thoughts on this? I am genuinely curious. The below viral Facebook post by Dale Partridge have caused an uproar within the Christian community.  Dale said that the Bible gives us very clear instructions regarding the qualifications of a shepherd in the church (1 Tim 3 and Titus 1). They call for a man to be sober-minded, self-controlled, doctrinally sound, disciplined, tested, holy (the list goes on). Church, it is not accepting or tolerant or understanding or compassionate to hire a man to shepherd a flock of God’s people who is openly struggling with mental illness. It’s unbiblical, it’s reckless, it’s dangerous, and as we’re seeing, it’s an easy target for the enemy to reign down national tragedy on the church. If your pastor has admitted to a state of mental illness he needs to be disciplined not discipling others.

It Cost $723.20 To Have Dinner With Bishop TD Jakes At Nairobi summit.

Image
Online congregation a couple of weeks ago Bishop T.D. Jakes appeared at the Soar Africa Leadership Summit in Nairobi, Kenya. Tickets for an eat-and-greet session with the bishop costing 75,000 shillings—$723.20 USD—were sold out. Those tickets were out of reach for the average Kenyan considering the per capita gross domestic product of Kenya is $2,010.  In 2017, Bishop Jakes released the book Soar!: Build Your Vision from the Ground Up. Amazon advertises the book with the lie "But it's never too late to get your dreams off the ground!" Tell that to the person on his death bed. Jakes' book promotes vision casting, which is a popular topic in secular leadership classes and at conferences for pastors. Ministry consultant Jim Wideman defines vision casting as "simply communicating the vision so others make your vision their own." https://nairobinews.nation.co.ke/news/it-will-cost-you-sh75k-to-be-in-the-same-room-with-televangelist-td-jakes-at-nairobi-sum

TBN Was Successfully Sued!!

Image
Online congregation Carra Crouch, the granddaughter of TBN’s late founders Paul Sr and Jan Crouch, has won her case against TBN. In 2012 Carra sued TBN because she was raped by a TBN employee and Jan Crouch covered up the rape. After a jury decided in her favor, TBN appealed the court decision. Last week a three-judge panel unanimously affirmed the lower court ruling. TBN must pay Carra $900,000 and cover legal fees. Law.com reports, “Carra’s attorney David Keesling of Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig in Tulsa, Oklahoma said it wouldn’t shock him if TCC appealed the case, which has been ‘litigated to death.’” However, the California Supreme Court is unlikely to hear the case it is appealed again. Since 1997, TBN has spent more than $40 million settling lawsuits.

Pastor Jamal Bryant Of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church Believes God Has Called His Church To Invest In The Welfare Of Seniors And Other Vulnerable Populations.

Image
Online congregation good Tuesday morning, billing New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Stonecrest, Georgia, as the “largest land-owning church in America,” pastor Jamal Bryant announced plans Sunday to build affordable housing for seniors as well as a medical facility on the church’s campus that will serve the uninsured and underinsured. “As you all know, we are two weeks away from making our headway to becoming a debt-free church. … We are the largest land-owning church in America. And next year, y’all get ready, 'cause it’s gonna be construction trucks all over our sanctuary, all over our campus. We’re looking to build right on our campus, affordable housing,” Bryant announced in a service that would later host rapper Kanye West’s Sunday Service. SOURCE: Christian Post, Leonardo Blair

Does Anyone Have A Pastor's Contract???

Image
Online congregation I found the above post in a Facebook group and thought it to be interesting to say the least, tell me what yall think about what this person is asking. In my opinion, if a Pastor decides to leave a religious organization, for example, COGIC and the members follow him/her without coercion or persuasion; why is that considered stealing. The pastor can’t help that people want to follow him. The Bible says I will give you pastors after my own heart. Not organizations! What yall think?

Gizelle Bryant Is Back For Her Role As First Lady.

Image
Online congregation good Monday morning, I’m here for this & happy for them. I know the girls are ecstatic. Sometimes the word on the street is actually true on The Real Housewives of Potomac. Gizelle Bryant confirmed the rumors that she is back together with ex-husband Jamal Bryant are true during Part 1 of the RHOP Season 4 reunion Sunday night. However, it wasn't easy for host Andy Cohen to get to the bottom of Gizelle's love life during the reunion at first. "There's somebody that I have been committed, that I've been, yes," before clarifying her "strangest answer ever" by saying, "There's someone that is heavily pursuing me, and I am enjoying the pursuit and I am open to it."

You Guys Remember The Larry Reid Story???

Image
Online congregation I support Larry Reid, even though he's still locked up in Facebook jail as I type this post, but every Monday you can catch him LIVE and in living colors on his website LarryReidLive.com and Periscope. Now I did talk with Larry via email Friday, and he told me that he has won two of his cases and needs to win the last case and charge that is against him. A Young Youtuber by the name of  Conscious Tv has uploaded a powerful video detailing exactly what happened and how Larry Reid got caught up in this mess. The way I understand it, all Larry was doing was trying to help a young lady get justice for an alleged rape she said that had taken place four years ago that was connected to the megachurch in Georgia. 

Bishop Amere J May Sr. Have Set Off A Firestorm On Social Media With The Following Pictures!

Image
Online congregation Bishop Amere J May Sr., pastor of Abundant Faith Worship Center, Huntersville, North Carolina have set the Christian community in an uproar over the above pictures and the following post to his social media page:  "Kanye isn’t Baptist, AME, Apostolic or COGIC! He’s having church outside the church! Every preacher especially if you’re a Pastor answer this, how can we talk about Kanye and we allow some men to attend church dressed like this? Do you see men dressed like this in a mosque? What we’ve allowed to come into the church is so out of order! Kanye shouldn’t be on our agenda until we clean up in house! That hat is for my Momma or wife! Long fingernails, what? Now this post has nothing to do with gay men, that’s their choice! This issue is what we’ve allowed into the church!" Update : The good bishop is now back-peddling, he has removed the original post. 

Why Did New Birth Atlanta, Have Prosperity Gospel Teacher I.V. Hilliard Address The Congregation Today??

Image
Online congregation good Sunday morning, “Name it and claim it" is the core tenet of the prosperity gospel it's telling God what you want and believing that you will receive it. Prosperity Health & wealth Gospel preacher and to some false preacher I.V. Hilliard of New Light Christian Center Church in Houston, Texas was with Pastor Jamal Bryant and the New Birth family in Atlanta GA, today. In all honesty, after watching this live stream I find myself disappointed. What a missed opportunity to show God's love to all those people that showed up for the show and instead got a word about money. He showed pictures of pastors who give over a certain amount or ask for 'over and above' offerings. So disheartening. Everyone asks why millennials don't go to church they want an experience with God, not a show. I have my thoughts on Yeezy's worship services but I'll summarize. He's reaching people and helping them worship in a way some may not have

Kim Kardashian Tells 'The View' Kanye West Is 'Born Again, Saved By Christ'!

Online congregation reality star Kim Kardashian West was a guest on “The View” Thursday where she spoke about her husband's religious beliefs and revealed that he sometimes hosts pop-up churches around the country through his music ministry, Sunday Service.

Stop It, Suicide Does Not Mean Hell For The Christians!!

Image
Online congregation like clockwork, a young pastor commits suicide this week, the question people ask does he go to Hell. Some preachers and Christian's say he has gone to Hell. I say he gone to Heaven because he was saved. Now if you hold the view a Christian can lose their salvation like certain Christians believe and teaches which is unbiblical, then I see how a person sees suicide as a ticket to Hell. But it's not. Gods forgiveness covers all sin in a Christian life including suicide.  No Christian can go to hell. They are covered by the blood of Jesus. God says he has never lost one believer. And he never will. it's sad the lack of compassion some Christians, and preachers have for those who deal with depression, and mental illness, which can lead to suicide. 

Kanye West Brings His Sunday Service To New Birth.

Image
Online congregation good Saturday morning, what else won’t the “church” do for filthy lucre ... I’m disappointingly not surprised at all.  According to Larry Reid, Kanye West Worship will be this Sunday in ATL at New Birth where Jamal Bryant is the pastor. Last week it was at Charles Jenkins church in Chicago. What do you guys think of churches opening up their sanctuaries to this worship experience?

This Sunday, September 15th, Is BACK TO CHURCH SUNDAY.

Online congregation good Friday morning, this Sunday, September 15, 2019, join 13,000 churches and be a part of the national movement to invite everyone in America back to church. Now in its 11th year, National Back to Church Sunday is a single day focused on involving everyone in the Church in an effort to reach out and invite everyone to give the church a try.

Something In The Milk Ain't Clean: Avoid Sarah Jakes-Roberts In 2019!

Image
Online congregation there are many false teachers I've seen being shared by Christians over the year this article talks about a few of them. Listen with discernment guys, Sarah Jakes-Roberts co-pastors One Church LA, is now taking her show on the road. I ran across this well-written blog post, last year that detailed just how off Sarah Jakes Roberts really is when it comes to the word.  Sarah and husband Toure' Roberts at one time were pastoring one of the fastest-growing churches in Los Angeles, much like her father, T.D. Jakes, Sarah Jakes-Roberts is a poised, articulate speaker who seems to possess a wealth of life wisdom for a 31-year-old. She appears pensive, and she speaks in paced patterns that suggest she is sincerely delving into the Word of God with great care and divine guidance. Yet, also like her father, she merely employs oratory techniques and leans a lot to her own understanding.

Transformation Church Buys Unused Spiritbank Event Center For $10.5 Million.

Image
Online congregation here is an interesting conversation piece that came across my newsfeed earlier today. Rumor is this pastor has made some folk really mad with his purchase. And if what is said below is true...ie this expensive building was bought in a "whiter" area, spending resources that may have been better used to serve a poorer blacker community.  In the clip, the pastor said they were up to 5 services. That can and does wear down a team and pastor. I say they will have to work hard to continue connectedness and community, but it seems like they are growing organically. I enjoy his sermons being shared online.  I was excited to see them get a permanent space that is big enough for all. The question that is being thrown around a lot is did pastor todd make this decision on his own or did he take a vote up with the congregation? I can honestly say that if there were 5 services then yes expansion is needed but to move the church 20 miles south of the community is

Gay Pastor 'Tom Anderson' Goes Off After Backlash Of Him Coming Out The Closet!!

Image
Online congregation good Thursday morning, Gay Pastor 'Tom Anderson' got angry with Christians for questioning his homosexual lifestyle. Tom also threatened to expose other down low Pastors that are in his DM's. Gay Christian Pastors are no longer hiding they're sexuality. In my opinion, he should have zero members after this rant... I understand the frustration but pull up, you know my address, etc. ... what happened to pastors after Gods own heart and not their own selfish pride, what happened to God our defender, what happened to blessed are the peacemakers. Warning there are lots of cussing in the video clip.

So Black Girls Rock Is Being Attacked By LGBTQ Activists For Not Including Black Transwomen.

Image
Online congregation this is interesting, to say the least, now members of the LGBTQ are going at the "Black Girls Rock" ceremony because of its lack of inclusion of black trans women. What is your take on this situation?  B.E.T’s annual Black Girls Rock! Awards aired Sunday night and honored incredible women like Angela Bassett, Regina King, and Ciara. Since 2007, the award show has done an amazing job at showcasing the talent and beauty that black women possess but, for the 12th year in a row, they’ve failed to acknowledge black trans women. And it didn’t go unnoticed. Pose star and trans rights activist Angelica Ross called out the award show on Sunday night. 

My Thoughts And Prayers Are With Pastor Jarrid Wilson Family!!

Image
Online congregation good Wednesday morning, so once again I regret to inform you that yet another pastor has taken his life.  Jarrid Wilson, a California church leader, author, and mental health advocate died by suicide Monday evening (Sept. 9) at age 30. Wilson, known as a passionate preacher, most recently was an associate pastor at megachurch Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California. A co-founder of the mental health nonprofit Anthem of Hope, Wilson was open about his own depression, often posting on his social media accounts about his battles with the mental illness.

Apostle David E. Taylor Said Pastor Benny Hinn Platform Is Done Here In America.

Image
Good Tuesday morning online congregation, David E. Taylor will do anything for attention. My opinion he’s a demon from hell.  Shock value and similar antics to get the people’s attention. He's a huge joke.  Taylor said last night in a live video, that Pastor Benny Hinn is done in America as told to him by an angel, his platform is done here.
