Is Sesame Street Trying To Indoctrinate Our Children? Billy Porter Will Appear On Sesame Street This Season.

Image
Now we really don’t know what Billy Porter will be doing on the show so why are folks already with the hate? Sesame Street has ALWAYS been about diversity and the American Experience. Billy Porter is an award-winning actor & singer. Some are suggesting his appearance on the show will indoctrinate our kids, I haven't a clue about that. Sesame Street announced yesterday that actor Billy Porter was going to appear on an episode and the right is already outraged. Porter, who is known both for his portrayal of Pray Tell in the series Pose as well as for his extravagant red carpet outfits, was featured in some pictures that Sesame Street posted to social media.

Leaders Of Apollo Quiboloy’s Church Charged With Trafficking!!

Image
An FBI investigation into human trafficking and immigration fraud culminated in Wednesday’s arrest of three U.S. leaders of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. This is the latest in a string of legal troubles for the Philippines-based church, led by Pastor Apollo Quiboloy. After raiding KOJC’s Los Angeles-area offices, federal authorities arrested three administrators for allegedly forcing immigrants to participate in a fundraising scam. As far back as 2013, say investigators, KOJC secured visas under false pretenses for church members. Once these volunteers, often called “miracle workers,” arrived, their passports were confiscated and they were forced to solicit money on streets. Though donations supposedly were being collected for poor Filipino children, the FBI’s Laura Eimiller says, “In reality, we believe the money is going to fund the lavish lifestyles of the leaders of this scheme."

Should You Allow Registered Sex Offenders in Church?

Image
Do yall think that churches should allow registered sex offenders to attend their church? A Tennessee lawmaker has introduced a bill that would allow registered sex offenders to attend church with permission from the church leader. I want to know yall thoughts?

You Can Pray And Seek Counseling At The Same Time.

Image
This is an interesting article, how Bishop Joseph Walker lll and his lovely wife Dr. Stephaine Hale Walker and their church, Mt. Zion Baptist Church, are helping to remove the stigma associated with getting mental health counseling. As we know mental illness is still a very taboo subject in the black community. Not only are many African Americans not willing to speak on it, but a lot find it to be a personal weakness. “Black people don’t go to therapy we pray about it” or “depression is a weakness, stop complaining about your life” is thrown out there a lot. Pastor, Bishop Joseph Walker, address in the article how he had also suffered in his own mental health journey and talked openly about it from the pulpit.

Shout Out To The 6th Episcopal District Of The AME Church For Carrying Out The Vocation Of Justice By Speaking Truth To Power!

Image
Yesterday Morris Brown College Chairman Bishop Reginald Jackson and MBC President Advisory Board member, Dr. Jamal Bryant along with members of the 6th episcopal district, went to the Georgia Capitol to call on Govorner Kemp to pass legislation to prosecute hate crimes. In an hour where white supremacy is surging, there must be protection for minority communities. To take money away from defense attorneys to give to prosecutors is just HATE. MBC is not only educating, but also involved in social justice and politics!

Bishop T.D.Jakes Pray For Gospel Singer Micah Stampley, In His Grief After Having Lost His Child.

Image
Church let's continual pray for Gospel Singer Micah Stampley healing and strength. On Sunday in his grief after having lost his child Bishop T.D Jakes prays for him, he began to sob and broke down. Just a few months after his 15-year-old daughter died from a seizure, international worship leader Micah Stampley publicly broke down in front of an audience at the   Potter’s House of Dallas, following the 48-year-old guest songstress’s worship set, Jakes prayed for Stampley, leaving the grieving father sobbing on his knees. “We love you. We love your family. We’ve been praying for you,” Jakes directed his comments to Stampley over the microphone immediately after he had completed a powerful medley of songs. Jakes told him, “We’ve been praying for your family. We love you, man. We stand in agreement with you [that] the strength of God envelope your heart even as you serve and you give out to other people, that God would replenish you, and renew your strength, and comfort you, and l

The Clark Sisters,The First Ladies of Gospel!!!

From executive producers and Grammy Award winners Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, and Missy Elliott come the authorized musical tale of the incomparable gospel singers, The Clark Sisters. The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel recounts the story of the highest-selling female gospel group in history and of their trailblazing mother, Mattie Moss Clark (Aunjanue Ellis).

The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel will air Easter on Saturday, April 11th at 8pm eastern and pacific, only on Lifetime.

Did Prophet Brian Carn ForTell The Death Of Retired Basketball Legend Kobe Bryant??

Image
On Sunday a penetrating sadness set in across the Nation(s) as we learned of the untimely death of a recently retired basketball legend, KOBE BRYANT, his beautiful and talented thirteen-year-old daughter, and other precious souls who did not survive a helicopter crash. Some church folks are online and sharing the below clip of Prophet Brian Carn prophesying in 2011 about the sudden death of a particular Basketball Star - Kobe Bryant. Some are saying that it's a totally accurate prophecy no matter the year.  However, everyone has failed to listen to the 1st Part of the Prophecy about a “Politician” that would tear this government apart.

Who In The Hell Left The Gate Open Allowing Andrew Yang To Sang With A Black Church Choir???

Image
Yall hear about the uncalled for backlash Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang is getting on social media for going to a black church, putting on a robe, and singing in the choir to pander to black voters?  He was my other choice for president, now I'm not so sure. I wish black people required more than pandering for a candidate to get our vote. "Hamilton, who is African American, was in the Iowa church as the Yang campaign's faith outreach director. She told CNN that the candidate's moment in the choir, which lasted all of two minutes, was spontaneous, genuine and joyful. The choir invited Yang to sing with them, she said. One of its members offered him a red and blue robe. So Yang -- a candidate who has crowd surfed and stuffed whipped cream in volunteers' faces -- did what he does. He joined in. "It was wonderful," Yang told a gaggle of reporters afterward. "Because in my mind it's always better to be participating in activity t

Coming Soon A Tribute To The Church Choir.

Image
Church I’m a church girl and love choir music. This tribute concert is going to be awesome, it will be held in Nashville, TN, April 25, 2020. I really miss a good church choir. The church choir's job was not just to sing beautifully, but rather it was to minister to the congregation and to each other in a variety of ways, helping to change the world into a more loving and peaceful place. Bring back the church choir.

Trump's Bobble Head Spiritual Advisor Paula White Praying For The Abortion Of Satanic Pregnancies, Whatever That Is.

Image
Bobble Head Paula White is dangerously corrupt. She's not a Christian, she's a dangerous and unscrupulous charlatan who has ZERO business being in the White House or anywhere near it. The 'WH Spiritual Advisor' is not only a rabid 'Prosperity Gospel' preacher but is apparently a full-blown nut.  On top of this, rumors have it that she is apparently under investigation for tax evasion - how appropriate for this WH. This administration is an endless source of crazy and corrupt the mud just gets blacker as you go deeper.

Through A Scripture Tattoo I Manifested My Husband????

Image
Church who knew Jeremiah 29:11 tattoo would lead this young lady to the altar. For some manifestation is real. Speaking positivity into your life can change the way you think & the way you speak and watch how your life changes. Very interesting post check it out and tell what yall think.

Is Aaron Rodgers An “Atheist”???

Image
Church what's yall reaction? Now, in my opinion, faith, or lack thereof is a personal matter and he is entitled to share his beliefs the same as any other person. Respect is a two-way street, and I feel no disrespect was given to those who believe differently than himself. I feel it is most disrespectful by anyone to hound, dog or otherwise push someone to convert to any faith system they do not share. I have found most Christians believe in freedom of religion, as long as it's their religion.

Pastor If You Cant Preach Over A Child Then Maybe You Shouldn't Be Preaching,Tennessee “Pastor” Gets Annoyed, Kicks Mom And Baby Out Of Church.

Image
Church I had a “pastor” call me out in front of the whole church one time. I was a young mother, lost, & not in church regularly, 1st and 3rd Sundays. My daughter made a little peep....she did not even cry. I didn’t go to the nursery & leave her with people I had never even met, I left.  We didn’t go anywhere for years. I still remember going to church as a child we didn't have nurseries, mom and dad took care of children in the safety of the sanctuary, and I never heard a pastor complain about one. This pastor is enjoying himself a little too much in my opinion. I tell you what, Jesus is coming and it won't be long before HE split those Eastern Skies. What in the world is this world coming to? Now you have this church in one city asking all older folks to leave and now you have this church in Tennessee with the pastor kicking out a mother and small child. What's yall think was the pastor out of line?

Image
Church on Sunday, January 19, 2020, congregants were left shocked after their pastor Reverend Bassie Jackals, passed away while delivering a sermon at African Methodist Episcopal Church in Kuruman, Northern Cape. A viral video that has been circulating online shows the pastor going to sit down in the middle of his powerful sermon, members of the church are seen applaud him, thinking it's all part of the sermon. However, the Northern Cape reverend then falls to the floor. He is survived by his wife Puleng Christina Jackals and four daughters. The video clip can be found on youtube.

Church I'm not surprised at all about the number of our skinfolk who support this right-wing thinking university and doesn't say a mumbling word about the foolishness that takes place there.  Grammy Award Winning Musician Tasha Cobbs Leonard will be back at Liberty University 2020 Convocation for a third time.

Pastor Noel Jones joins FOX SOUL host, Dr. Sean, for a conversation surrounding life, religion, and today's society. We all know that Millennials are leaving the church in record numbers. They better figure it out quickly. Bishop said in the interview that people want the true Gospel. They want to see God work.

The programs aim to celebrate black culture and deal with real topics that impact the everyday lives of the black community through frank and insightful dialogue with local and national influencers.

Cause Of TobyMac's Son Death Reported As Accidental Drug Overdose!!

Image
Church hearts and prayer to Toby and his family. Tragic.So sad. The news was expected due to the length of time it took to come out, but certainly never an ending you want to read about. Addiction is real, and it hides in many forms, and it eventually leads to death. But there's always hope. It requires a sudden awakening, intense honesty and immediate action but there is always hope. Always. Most overdoses are accidental. There is no "safe" dose for fentanyl and these other literally "controlled dangerous substances." That is why they are either completely banned for medical use or are only supposed to be used in highly controlled medical environments.

Benjamin Watson Says He Will “unveil the truth about abortion.”

Image
First off, I do not endorsement abortion, I DO NOT BELIEVE IN ABORTION. With all due respect to you sir, I have followed you somewhat for years, even with some differing views. Pro-Choice is just that, the choice of a woman to make decisions about her body. No one should ever force a person to do anything with their body they don’t want to be done. This is not for an argument, it’s just the way I personally feel. Living in the US affords me these rights, just as everyone else is afforded the same right to their opinion. During my childbearing years, I would have never ever chosen abortion for my self, because it goes against everything that I believe in. In an upcoming documentary featuring interviews with people like Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Alveda King, pro-life New England Patriots tight end Benjamin Watson says he will “unveil the truth about abortion.” Watson, who is an outspoken Christian and pro-life a

There's A Shift Taking Place In The Body Of Christ, The Generals Are Getting Younger!

Image
Church if you ever wondered WHEN the generals of the church would start it shift from older men toward younger men? It looks like it's happening now. Well, that's according to Minister Mark Moore's viral Facebook post, that the shift is taking place now, with the announcement of three up and coming young pastors. Moore said in the viral post, that's gone are the days of waiting until you’re 60 to be valid and viable, get ready for promotion! You’re not next...you’re now! Check out the post below, and tell me if you agree or not.

Vatican’s Legion of Christ at Center of Scandal!!

Image
Church the administrator of the elite Catholic school in Cancun, Mexico, used to take the girls out of class and send them to the chapel, where a priest from the Legion of Christ religious order would sexually abuse them. “As some were reading the Bible, he would rape the others in front of them, little girls aged 6 to 8 or 9,” said one of his victims, Ana Lucia Salazar, now a 36-year-old Mexican television host and mother of three. “Afterward, nothing was the same, nothing went back to the way it was,” she said through tears at her home in Mexico City.

'blackish' The Bible Edition.

Image
Church the Bible is a multicultural book. This statement may sound controversial but archeology, history, and the text prove it to be true. A couple of years ago this controversy played out in the media when viewers of The Bible miniseries were upset that Samson was played by a black man. A second controversy occurred when a Fox News broadcaster confidently declared that Santa Claus and Jesus were white, yet when people researched original depictions of Saint Nicolas, they found pictures of a dark brown man. It appears that our faith has been distorted. Anyhow with all that been said, coming soon to a campus near you Dr. R.A. Vernon will unearth black presence in the Bible and the impact people of color have had on Christendom. In the spirit of the late great Dr. James Cone, the goal of this series is to help us see the beauty of blackness in the Bible.

Cottage Grove United Methodist Church Ushers Out Grey Haired Congregants In Order To Attract Younger Folks.

Image
Church, if I'm understanding this right Grove United Methodist Church in Cottage Grove Minnesota, is not allowing anyone with grey hair to attend their church after it closes in June and reopens in November because they want to attract young families. Members of Grove United Methodist Church is upset enough that their church is closing in June. What makes it worse is that their church is reopening in November — pretty much without them. The church wants to attract more young families. The present members, most of them over 60 years old, will be invited to worship somewhere else. A memo recommends that they stay away for two years, then consult the pastor about reapplying. Rumors has it that the Methodist Conference is paying them $250,000 to "restart" the church - but only if they kick all the previous older members out.

A Fall From Grace!!

Image
Church Actor, director, and producer Tyler Perry says his latest film, Netflix’s “A Fall from Grace,” was birthed out of his own experience clinging to his faith and prayer in times of pain and uncertainty. “I just want people to know that no matter how dark, no matter how bad, no matter how dismal the scene or situation you’re in, there’s still hope,” Perry told The Christian Post in a sit-down interview in New York City. “I say that even from my own life, realizing that I was in some of the darkest times in my life and didn’t even know if I was going to make it. But as long as it held my faith and held on to hope and prayer and God and believing, it all came together.”  

Oprah ‘spiritual partnership’ With Long-time Love Stedman Graham!!

Image
Church is Media Mogul Oprah Winfrey who professes by her own mouth to be a Christian, out of order for living with businessman Stedman Graham for over 34 years and never felt the need to marry him? The media personality feels that if they would have gotten married, their relationship would not have worked out. According to Oprah, she has a 'spiritual partnership' with Stedman, whom she calls a 'genuine gentleman.'  Anyhow I argued in the post below that they are already married they just didn't choose the legal way by signing a piece of paper.

Woman Accused Of Altering a $10 Dollar Check From A Dayton Church To $632 Dollars.

Image
A woman was accused by a Dayton church of altering a charitable check to be paid directly to her and changed the amount paid by hundreds of dollars, according to a Dayton police incident report. A member of the Westminster Presbyterian Church in downtown Dayton reported a fraudulent check was cashed and electronically deposited from an account the church uses for charity, investigators said in the police report. The check was originally made out to the Ohio Treasurer BMV for $10, and the funds were intended to help a 41-year-old Dayton woman obtain a state-issued identification card, church officials told police. After receiving a notification from their bank, the church found the check has been completely altered. The church first accused the woman of changing the amount of the check to $632. In addition, the church said she changed who the check was made out to, from the Ohio BMV to herself and the date the check was issued from Dec. 6, 2019 to Jan. 6, 2020, the report states

Whose Interests Are Multiracial Congregations Serving???

Image
Church this confirms what I've felt for some time. And I would argue there will never be such a thing as a multi-cultural congregation....except for maybe the catholic church. I would argue that a “multi-cultural” church is really a myth. As a black Christian, I used to think that multi-ethnic congregations were a good thing, but I no longer think that....white supremacy is so deep in most white churches and it's the ugly effect it has on the Church. I hate to advocate segregation for black Christians, but I think it might be a necessary one, to not have to deal with white supremacy, but two, to affirm our blackness. What do you think?

Dr.Jack Van Impe Has Moved From Time Into Eternity, Where Time No Longer Matters.

Image
Church after doing his last broadcast, January 10th, 2020, Dr. Van Impe fell, broke his tailbone and was called home on January 18th, 2020, a few days before his 89th birthday. A giant in ministry who memorized one-third of the Bible, preached the Gospel around the world, first with massive Crusades and then on television to 247 nations. He authored dozens of best-selling books and his ministry saw over 8 million people give their lives to Jesus Christ. Jack Van Impe, faithfully served in ministry for over 70 years. Please pray for his beloved wife and lifelong ministry partner Rexella and their families as they grieve this immense loss and for wisdom as she and the Board lead the ministry in the days ahead. Further details about Dr. Van Impe’s homecoming celebration will be published later.

Did Oprah Winfrey Network Drop Pastor John Gray To Protect Her Brand??

Image
Church I'm thinking Pastor John Gray is in serious need of a new PR team, in my opinion, his present PR team sucks at representing him and his church. What yall think? Anyhow, 2020 has started badly for Relentless Church Senior Pastor John Gray. From his church facing eviction to being sued for $75K in unpaid wages to now having Oprah's network canceling his TV show.  The Oprah Winfrey Network has announced it's canceling Relentless Church pastor John Gray's television show, "The Book of John Gray," as he faces down two separate lawsuits including one that seeks to evict him from facilities owned by pastors Ron and Hope Carpenter.

Should Christians Watch The CBS Series Evil?

Image
Church what yall think about Pastor Fred Price Jr. Facebook post from last night? It's interesting, to say the least, and here's why. These are crucial times where we must do discernment and examination of consciousness to ensure that we are not sending our good intention in the wrong way, we are Christ’s hands and feet and we must spread Gospel and evangelize to others.  I really think for a Christian pastor, young Price Jr. is to invested in the demonic world. ( yall can read about it here ) Now, I have been following Fred Price Jr. on social media for quite some time now, way before his daddy-sit him down for a short season. And for starters I never believe Fred Price Jr. cheated on his wife or anything like that, I believe he was sit-down because he had become "woke" and was beginning to question some of the doctrines that he was taught growing up. If you ever followed any of this young man teaching then you would know exactly what I'm talking about a

Here We Go Again, Another Bishop Go To Jail, Bishop Richard “Mr. Clean” White!!

Image
Church according to William McCray Bishop Richard John White was arrested on Thursday Night for assaulting his daughter. According to McCray's source that's close to the father said that the father and daughter had gotten into a heated argument when things took a turn for the worse.    The father is said to have taken a vase and smashed it over his daughter’s head that required her to go to the emergency room. It was added that this happened in front of his grandchildren, which added to the felony charges he is facing. The recent widower is being held in Fayette County without bond and most likely it will be Tuesday before he can go before a judge to be bond with Monday being the King Holiday! This could have been worse that what it is. I hear he is a gun-toting pastor who threatened his members about not paying their tithes back in the '90s. http://www.obnoxioustelevision.com/uncategorized/bishop-richard-mr-clean-white-is-in-jail-being-held-without-bond/

Kanye West Joins Prominent Anti-LGBTQ Crusaders As Headliner Of Prayer Rally ‘Awaken 2020’ In Arizona:

Image
Church as long as Kanye West rapped colorism and misogyny against black women he was a "Genius" now that he has taken his hatred and bigotry to a Joel Osteen/Pat Robinson level and now everyone shocked. The LGBTQ community are rightful upset that he West has decided to hitch his wagon to some prominent anti-LGBTQ preachers/pastors/teachers.  Kanye West announced that he and his Sunday Service choir will take part in Awaken 2020, a prayer rally featuring dominionists Lou Engle, Ché Ahn, Cindy Jacobs and other evangelists that will be held Saturday, Jan. 18 at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona. According to one report, West’s announcement sparked such a flood of people registering for free tickets that the event website crashed. Some religious conservatives believe that West’s highly publicized conversion and his traveling “Sunday Service” will help spark the Great Awakening, a revival that religious-right leaders have been trying to set in motion for years. To them, the

But If You Do That Then You Have To Allow Prayer In Schools?!!!

Image
Church talk about pandering, Trump held an Oval Office event today aimed at reminding public schools that students have constitutional rights to prayer – and that they could risk losing federal funds unless those rights are protected. Now I don't have a problem with anybody praying as long as everybody of every faith is giving the same rights to pray to their god. As a matter of fact, I would encourage ALL students of different faiths, other than Trump, to go all out to exercise their rights to their kind of prayers and worship. Trump and followers will not like it if it as it is not their brand of faith. It would be great to have reinforced protections AGAINST prayers in school for those who are not religious. It is a PUBLIC institution... if you want religion in school, send your child to a private school associated with their religion. We have to appease ALL people in public institutions. Get Religion out of Government. Period

Joe Biden Speaks At The National Baptist Convention In Arlington, Texas.

Church tonight approximately 1000 National Baptist Convention delegates welcome Former Vice President Joe Biden to their mid-winter board meeting in Arlington Texas. Joe told the audience “I hear the pain, the division, the fear of too many of our communities.” Today, it’s not firehoses and snarling dogs that have brought America to an inflection point.

New Birth Donation Wipes Out Medical Debt For 1,200 South DeKalb Residents!!

Image
Church a donation from New Birth Missionary Baptist Church has wiped out the debt of more than 1,200 south DeKalb residents, thanks to a partnership with RIP Medical Debt, a New York-based nonprofit organization. Senior Pastor Dr. Jamal Bryant directed the relief efforts to individuals residing in the 30038 ZIP code, which includes Stonecrest and Lithonia. Church officials said nearly $1.3 million in medical debt was erased through its partnership with RIP Medical Debt. The average resolved medical debt was $1,065.  “We are blessed to be a blessing and this effort has truly helped families start the New Year without the stress, worry, and concern that often accompanies looming medical bills and calls from debt collectors,” said Dr. Bryant. “When a medical issue occurs, the subsequent bills can wreak havoc on a family’s finances leading some down a path of bad credit or left with reservations about even seeking medical attention for fear of the costs for services.”

Should There Be A Separation Between Church And Space?

Image
Church where do you stand? Is it appropriate to include Christian themes in military ceremonies, or should the Space Force remain secular? Those are some of the questions some are asking after a recent swearing-in ceremony for a commander of trump’s newly minted “Space Force” that included strong religious themes. During the ceremony, the commander was reportedly asked to place a hand on a Bible while an Episcopal bishop said a blessing. As news of the incident spread, many took issue with the decision to use the Bible to swear in a member of the military – a practice historically reserved only for members of congress and other public officeholders. But the wording of the blessing also caught people’s attention: "Accept this Bible which we dedicate here today for the United States Space Force, that all may so diligently search your holy word and find in it the wisdom that leads to peace and salvation, through Jesus Christ our Lord, amen."

Tuesday Night Bible Study: Do Christians and Muslims Worship The Same God??

Church COGIC Bishop Elijah Hankerson is back with another great Tuesday Night Bible Study ”DO CHRISTIANS and MUSLIMS WORSHIP THE SAME GOD?” By 2050 Islam is on course to surpass Christianity in numbers and become the world’s largest religion.  Is Allah and the LORD the same God?  Does the Koran acknowledge Jesus?  To be saved; are there certain things you have to believe about Jesus?

Is Toure Roberts (Sarah Jakes husband) A Modalist??

Image
Church the doctrine of the Trinity is the Christian belief that: There is One God, who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Other ways of referring to the Trinity are the Triune God and the Three-in-One. The Trinity is a controversial doctrine; many Christians will admit they don't understand it, while many more Christians don't understand it but think they do. In fact, although they'd be horrified to hear it, many Christians sometimes behave as if they believe in three Gods and at other times as if they believe in one. The Trinity is a concept that is impossible for any human being to fully understand, let alone explain. Anyhow folks online are angry and are calling (no preaching Sarah Jakes husband) Pastor Toure Roberts out for a clip that he's in that's going viral, with hundreds of comments:      Did he get the Trinity wrong? "The entire video is here"
