Can The Church Survive? The CDC Document Outlines Guidance For Reopening Of Churches!!

Image
Church some of the recommendations here are ridiculous. They claim that they aren't infringing on religious liberties, but they know that with the psychological impact this has had on folks that some Church members will insist on some of the more extreme measures take place, i.e. "Promote social distancing".  If a Church promotes social distancing by implementing these measures, it won't be long before that Church is lost or even gone completely. When that happens the church loses. If all of these measures are put in place it will put more stress on the foundation of the Church; one more crack. Enough cracks in the foundation and the Church fails.

A Multiracial Church Which Never Confronts White Supremacy Is A White Church.

Image
Church I totally agree with the above post. I never really bought into the idea of a multiracial church, I just don't think that they exist.   My sister's husband and family were part of a very diverse church for many years,  when I went home to visit from time to time I would visit.  Then came Trump and folks I thought I knew and was "like-minded" in Christ made me stop going and re-evaluate the company I had been keeping the last couple of years. Phrases like.."we just focus on Jesus in this church" were routinely used to tiptoe past dealing with real issues. It's been a few years since I last visit,  I'm still social media friends with many of them and I see the things they like "like and share" ๐Ÿ‘€ I now see how very naive I was.

Church Heather Lindsey is no stranger to this blog( you can read about her here )nor her organization Pinky Promise. There's allegation circulating online that her and husband Cornelius Lindsey, their church Gathering Oasis are under fire. Whispers of spiritual abuse in their organizations have been going on for years. Now an investigation is being done to put stories together. Sharing this in case anyone has been impacted by their ministry. There is a form in the details of the below video.

Trump Administration To Redirect WHO Funding To Evangelist Franklin Graham's Samaritan's Purse

Image
Church this is a doggone shame before God. The idiot in the White House administration is laundering federal money into a 501c3 nonprofit that doesn't pay taxes. That money could have been spent on vaccine/treatment for COVID-19.  He couldn't have picked a nastier, more bigoted, intolerant, ignoramus than, Franklin Graham.

This Is Beyond Disturbing๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜•.

Church Gospel Artist Troy Sneed was one of my favorites gospel music artists. According to online sources, he made his transition this morning from time unto eternity due to complications from Covid-19. Me, Myself, and I send condolences to his family, friends, and the gospel music community...Rest In Heavenly Peace!

Black Pastors Say They Are Not Receiving Funding from SBA Loan Program Despite Applying And Are Struggling Because of It!!!!

Image
Church this is not a surprise at all, I made mention of this conversation in an early post .  So why is it always a struggle to help people of color and minorities? The point is that some better off white churches are getting money and poor, often black churches are not. It should be all or none. This new government program that funnels taxpayer money to churches, synagogues, and mosques has brought welcome relief to some financially stressed houses of worship while leaving others — many of them serving communities of color — still struggling to survive. Not surprise at all.

Pastor Jamal Bryant Is Opening Up New Birth Missionary Baptist Church Million Dollar Studio To Local Pastors, For Free!??!/

Image
This is awesome, Pastor Bryant said to whom much is given much is required.....that God has blessed them to be a blessing. New Birth Missionary Baptist Church has just completed a million-dollar studio and the Lord impressed upon his heart after reading this article to be a blessing to other pastors in Dekalb County. If your church needs help in this pandemic crisis have them send an email NOW. Tag your pastor or church! Our churches MUST come together!

Are Church Members Comfortable Going Back To Church Services And Being Exposed To The Crowds????

Image
Church what are yall thoughts? Some internet saints are highly disappointed that Bishop T.D. Jakes would use his platform to vote over whether or not people should adhere to health precaution measures. "People are DYING from this.....50.000 people died and still counting. How in the world should this be up for debate? Please do not use your influence and authority to put people’s lives in danger. Create a survey for medical professionals in order for them to give an opinion-whether or not it is safe for people to gather together in a great multitude at this point." In my opinion, they should stay closed. It shouldn't even be a debate. They do not have this thing under control yet. Why take the risk??? There's no reason to put anyone in Jeopardy.  What do yall think?

Several Memphis Pastors Want To Get Tested For COVID-19 To Remove The Deep Mistrust Of The Testing Process.

Image
Church several Memphis pastors are signaling a growing concern within their congregations. Many members, they say, don't trust the testing process for COVID-19. The Memphis pastors told The Commercial Appeal on Friday they're worried about their congregations. Too many, they say, have a deep mistrust of the testing process. And that distrust, they fear, will directly result in lives lost to COVID-19. To combat the mistrust, these pastors are planning to get tested for COVID-19 and videotape the process, hoping that if they show their congregations they trust the testing process, more will follow in their footsteps. COVID-19 testing is for symptomatic residents. It's not immediately clear how the pastors, who are not symptomatic, could get tested, but it is clear to them that someone in their congregation they trust needs to pull back the curtain around the testing process. In my opinion, it is just not their church members, I would say a vast majority of the taxpaye

DMX Hosted Virtual Bible Study on Instagram Live and Fans Want More!!!

Church the rapper DMX took to Instagram Live, where he hosted a virtual Bible study. During Friday's session, X decided to help people come to terms with the coronavirus pandemic by reading several scriptures from the Bible. Fans and followers were moved by X's enthusiastic reading of Ecclesiastes, leading them to show their appreciation on the timeline.

North Carolina Police To Prophet Brian Carn You Can No Longer Have Church!!!

Image
Church according to Social Media Influencer Jawn Murray,  Charlotte police have FINALLY told North Carolina pastor Brian Carn he can no longer have church after audio surfaced of him admitting he had Coronavirus but still held services. Not mentioned in this news report is that this so-called “prophet” was exposed in 2016 for delivering a new year’s “prophecy” to a church that was stolen verbatim from an online psychic!  Watch the news video in the story.

Did Prophet Kim Clement Prophesied Kim Jong Un Death????

Image
Church it is rumored that the North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, is dead or at least very sick and bedridden. The internet is going in overdrive over the news. In a video (which was taken from service in Washington state on 4/4/2009) Kim Clement prophesied the following:  ๐Ÿ”‘ KIM JONG UN WOULD BECOME BRAIN DEAD  ๐Ÿ”‘ THAT HIS DEATH WOULD MARK THE UNIFICATION OF NORTH & SOUTH KOREA  ๐Ÿ”‘ THAT A GREAT OUTPOURING OF THE SPIRIT WOULD FOLLOW THIS.   The question that's been asked is now the time for this prophecy to be fulfilled??? As of yesterday, according to news sources, Kim Jong Un has suffered complications while in surgery and is brain dead. What is that yall think?

Church Donations Have Plunged Because Of COVID-19 Some Churches Won’t Survive.

Image
Many churches have been dealing with the effects of  COVID-19 for the past several weeks. Doors have been closed as many congregations have held services online. Among their challenges has been bringing in funds to keep the churches running.  A number of congregations and church-sponsored organizations report sharp declines in giving during the COVID-19 crisis, while others say donations have held nearly steady in spite of church doors being closed since the middle of March. Churches that already had online giving platforms in place had a jump-start on helping members continue to donate. Other congregations that relied on passing the plate at Sunday services had to play catch-up and are only recently offering online platforms for donations. Though many churches haven't set a date to reopen, many congregations are looking ahead at what they're going to do once they begin holding in-person services again, and if people will come back.

Televangelist Jim Bakker Is Asking People To Send Him Checks After Credit Card Companies Cut Him Off For Selling Fake Coronavirus Cures!!

Church Who y’all got? Bishop Hezekiah Walker or Pastor John P Kee?

Image
Church who yall got? This should be interesting. Bishop Hezekiah Walker has challenged Pastor John P. Kee to a battle this Sunday night at 7p.m. Two of gospel music icons are stepping into the Instagram battle ring. In a social media post shared Thursday (April 23rd), John P. Kee confirmed that he and gospel legend Hezekiah Walker will be battling out their greatest hits Sunday (April 26th). This battle announcement comes amid the series of ‘Verzuz’ battles that have occurred over the course of the quarantine period due to COVID-19. All of the battles have been over IG Live with legendary producers and artists showcasing their greatest hits and songwriting credits.

What Can The Church Pastor, Do While Pastoring During A Pandemic!??!?!

Image
Church the COVID-19 has brought the entire world to a shocking standstill, yet the church must go on. Ministry must continue to go forward but what does that look like post-pandemic? How are our communities impacted and how will they recover? How do we address health disparities that are now even more prevalent? Join Bishop Joseph Walker lll on the Mount Zion Facebook Page Monday, April 27th at 7pm (cst) with several leading faith voices as they address the issues at hand and ahead directly.

Bishop G E Patterson Calls Out A False Prophet!!

Image
I use to watch Bishop G.E. Patterson every Sunday morning before heading off to Sunday morning services. This is the first time I have seen him in this mode. He exposed, called out, rebuked, and then told security to escort the false prophet out of the Sanctuary. Establishing order in the Lord’s house. Today's Church folks don't know anything about that...they seeker-friendly and everyone is a prophet.

Feds Go After Self-described Church In Florida Selling Bleaching Agent As Cure For COVID-19๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜•

Image
Church last week a federal judge secured a temporary injunction against one organization, known as the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing, for marketing a product equivalent to industrial bleach as a remedy for coronavirus. A federal judge in Miami issued an order on Friday blocking the sale of an apparent hoax-cure for COVID-19, which the Justice Department says was actually industrial-strength bleach. Several Southwest Florida residents, through a self-proclaimed religious entity, had been marketing a "Master Mineral Solution" (MMS) on their affiliated websites, stating fanciful claims about its potential applications. The Genesis II Church of Health & Healing provided that MMS could alleviate COVID-19 through "sacramental dosing." It instructed adults to take six drops of "activated MMS" in a glass of water every two hours.

Joyce Meyers Followers Are Upset With Her๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž

Image
Church I found the above picture on someone's Facebook page that I followed and decided to post it here. Check out the post below and tell me what yall think: "Joyce, I am so disappointed in you that you would use the money from the ministry that people send to your ministry and use that money for your face because you don't want to look old. To get plastic surgery for your face. I've seen you on Fox and Friends one day and I couldn't even recognize you I'm disappointed.   God did not give the ministry to you to take advantage of the money. You should be ashamed of yourself being irresponsible. think about the story in the Bible where Jesus got really mad the way they were using God's Temple for gambling. Do you remember how mad he got? So think about how you're using that money the same thing as the people using the synagogue for gambling for their own gain. they use the temple for the wrong reasons as you use the money for the wrong reasons and f

Pastor Jamal Bryant Said Georgia Opening The State Is Like Opening Caskets!

Image
Church New Birth Missionary Baptist Church outspoken  Pastor Jamal Bryant has slammed the Georgia governor's decision to begin reopening the local economy by Friday as akin to an "assault on the minority community” and “contrary to God’s will” amid the coronavirus pandemic. “Gov. Kemp, if you have a decibel of moral integrity before Friday comes, I am pleading on your conscience, even when the evangelicals remain silent in this hour, I stand and cry aloud and spare not, that what it is you are calling for is contrary to the will of God who declared openly ‘I came that you might have life and have it more abundantly,’” Bryant said in a live Facebook Post. Thank you, Pastor Bryant! That stimulus money is burning a hole in some people's pockets. They can't wait to get hair and nails done. They don't care about social distancing. Please stay home. Be safe and Be Blessed!

Did Prophet Brian Carn Continue To Have Church During The Pandemic And Caught The Virus????

Image
Church there is a troubling story in the Daily Mail about  North Carolina pastor Brian Carn who apparently has COVID-19  per audio he sent to members, but STILL conducted services. According to Carn, he has been suffering from pain, shakes & a cough. He ignored orders to close his Kingdom City Church in Charlotte, NC, and held a packed Easter service. Now worried worshippers shared copies of the audio.

How Many Churches In Georgia Will Be Opening The Doors Of The Church This Sunday?

Image
Church AME Church, Bishop Reginald T. Jackson is not in support of opening AME churches this Sunday. In a very well written pastoral letter from his desk, the Georgia AME Church Bishop wrote to his parishes. On Monday the governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp ended his call for churches to be close during the Coronavirus Pandemic, meaning churches will be allowed to gather in worship beginning this Sunday.

Pastor Tony Spell Was Handcuffed And Taken Into Custody By Police On Aggravated Assault Charge.

Image
Church this the "pastor" that NOT only challenged people to give their stimulus checks to church but is in blatant defiance of a public mandate. He has been charged with aggravated assault? Louisiana authorities arrested Pastor Spell on an assault charge on Tuesday after he admitted that he drove his church bus toward a man who has been protesting his decision to continue holding mass gatherings at church in defiance of public health orders during the coronavirus pandemic. The police department in Central, a suburb of the capital of Baton Rouge, said on a posting on their Facebook page that Tony Spell, the pastor of Life Tabernacle Church, turned himself in to the department and was arrested on charges of aggravated assault and improper backing.

Gospel Singer Erica Campbell Warns “It’s The End Of Times”๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Image
With the coronavirus pandemic spreading across the globe, a lingering question has resurfaced: "Are we witnessing the end of the world?" The coronavirus pandemic has some of the country worried about if the pandemic is a sign of the end times. The pandemic has also left people wondering when things will get back to normal. Gospel singer Erica Campbell who is a member of the gospel group Mary Mary is also feeling these concerns. Erica Campbell posted a clip to her Instagram that she retweeted from another page. It is a clip from the ‘Today’ show from July 2017. The segment demonstrated the installation of a microchip inside of the hand of an employee at a store called Three Square Market. 

The Coronavirus Has Been Beyond Devastating To The COGIC Church Family.

Church keep the Sheard family in your prayers. Ms.Willie Mae Sheard wife of Bishop John H. Sheard, and mother to Bishop J Drew & Evangelist Karen Clark Sheard has transtion from time unto eternity.  This is another great loss for the COGIC family. The Coronavirus has been beyond devastating to Detroit and the Church Of God In Christ, Inc. Bishop Sheard recovered from the Virus but Unfortunately Mother Willie Mae Sheard his wife of 64 years didn’t.

COCID-19 Has Killed Multiple Bishops And Pastors Within The Nation Largest Black Pentecostal Denomination.

Image
Church the main vectors for the spread of the coronavirus: nursing homes, sporting events, religious gatherings. "The Church of God in Christ, the country’s biggest African American Pentecostal denomination, has taken a deep and painful leadership hit with reports of at least a dozen to up to 30 bishops and prominent clergy dying of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. Officials from the denomination did not return requests for comment, but media reports and interviews with experts who study the denomination show the deaths of leaders in states including Michigan, New York, and Mississippi. Those are regions where the Church of God in Christ is prominent and the coronavirus has hit hard. Among those who died after reportedly contracting the virus were: First Assistant Presiding Bishop Phillip A. Brooks, a legendary preacher and leader from Detroit who was No. 2 in the denomination and whose death was reported by the Detroit News; Bishop Timothy Scott, a leader

Couple Goes Viral For Being Engaged and Virgins.

Image
Jeremiah Chase, 28 and Brandi McCrae 36 Church remember a couple of months ago ( you can read about it here ) when rapper T.I. says he makes annual visits to the gynecologist to make sure his daughter is still a virgin. Some folks were outraged, while others thought it was smart parenting. Well here's a lovely couple who are both virgins and are engaged. This is lovely. Truly it is. They are a beautiful couple. The age is a little surprising but at the same time not. I wonder if her being 36 and getting married and beyond older has to do with her parent's upbringing and choosing to wait until marriage to have sex.  Because a lot of men aren’t willing to wait and thus, she had to wait for someone who was willing. That is encouraging and discouraging at the same time if I’m just being honest.

Bill Gates, At Odds With The Idiot In The White House On Virus, Becomes A Right-Wing Target๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜’

Image
Church Ray Charles and any other blind man could see where the latest rage against Bill Gates is coming from. A "We The People" petition calling on the federal government to order Congress to investigate Bill Gates for "medical malpractice" and "crimes against humanity" has reached the required number of signatures for an official response in just a few days. Bill Gates slammed the idiot in the White House decision to withhold $500million in funding to the World Health Organization, saying it's 'as dangerous as it sounds'. The tech magnate, worth $104billion, tweeted Wednesday saying the US' involvement with the WHO is more necessary than ever. 'Halting funding for the World Health Organization during a world health crisis is as dangerous as it sounds,' he tweeted Wednesday.

Is Payola Alive In The 'gospel music" Industry? Tye Tribett Said That God Did NOT Establish The Gospel Music Industry?!?!?!

Image
Church I just watched Tye Tribett on Instagram and he's saying a lot. Apparently, he’s been asked to compromise his faith by the big wigs in the music industry in order for them to put his music on certain platforms. We never know what these folks are going through. But, stay strong Tye Tribett. Also in the clip, he said that God did NOT establish the Gospel Music Industry and he’s not willing to keep putting the music and songs that he birth in the hands of an ungodly industry. He’s tired of it and is speaking out about it.

Could COVID-19 Be A 'genocide' Against Black People??!?!

Image
Dr. Kizzmekia S. Corbett is being investigated for implying in a couple of shared tweets that doctors would overlook black Americans if ventilators are in short supply, which could cause them to die. If not mistake there are thousands of tweets about the virus because each one is giving their theory into what is going on. I intend to believe that the doctor may be on to something if an investigation is being launched. Why not investigate what was reportedly said why the investigation of her? This woman gave her thoughts just like the rest of us, so why is she being singled out? She did not give away any research info, so something is going on. Dr.Kizzmekia is a viral immunologist and research fellow at the Vaccine Research Center at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health. She has gone viral over the past few weeks after the news broke that she is leading the team of scientists working on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Charles E. Blake, Sr. Presiding Bishop Of The Church of God In Christ, Once Again Spoke To The Churches Under Him, His Directive Regarding COVID19.

Image
Church the whole world is watching the churches right now, to see how we handle things...I want to salute the leader of the Churches of God in Christ (COGIC) organization, Bishop Charles E. Blake Sr. for representing his Pentecostal denomination well during these trying times. I salute the statement he made on April 16, 2020. The global COVID-19 has confirmed cases topped 2 million with 159, 510 deaths. Of those numbers, 732,197 are confirmed cases in the United States and 38, 664 deaths. On April 16, 2020, Charles E. Blake, Sr. Presiding Bishop of the Church of God in Christ, once again spoke to the Church’s his directive regarding COVID19. 

Zondervan Publishes Quran With Commentary To Help Christians "interact more with Muslim"๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜•

Image
Church some white evangelicals are not feeling this idea at all.  Zondervan a Christian publishing company has decided to published an English translation of the Quran with Christian commentary to help Christians evangelize to Muslims. From my understanding, it is from an apologetic perspective. Some who are in favor of the idea say that this could be a real weapon in evangelism while others have an issue with it. The issue for most is that so many Christians hate this idea. Why do so many of us who claim to be Christians have to be "unlearned"? I understand new/baby believers, but to those of us that have been in Christ many years that still DO NOT know how to talk to people about Jesus and you got the nerve to be angry when people try to help others to come to Christ.

Some Say The Government Has Gone Too Far With The Stimulus Package By Covering Clergy Salaries.

Image
Church the coronavirus stimulus package signed into law last month not only serves to bolster individuals, families and for-profit companies impacted by the ongoing pandemic but also offers relief to churches and ministry staff as well. The Southern Baptist financial services company GuideStone published an explainer document produced by its legal team to lay out how the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act, passed last Friday, applies to churches, pastors, Christian nonprofits and small businesses.

Kierra Sheard,  is currently on a virtual promo trail for the project, and her new self titled album which arrived on Friday (April 17). During a chat with Hollywood Unlocked's Jason Lee, she was quizzed on her thoughts of fellow gospel singer, Kim Burrel.

Dr. Phil Says COVID-19 Is No More Pervasive Than Car Crashes, Drownings๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž

Image
Lord have mercy Faux news network appears to be promoting a former psychologist who hasn't been licensed in more than a decade, with no public health training, over the country's top infectious disease doctor who's served in that role under five presidents. Faux News is the worst thing for our country at this moment, why in the world people keep watching Faux escapes all logic. We really need to be careful who we trust when it comes to news and experts.  Would it be ok to "risk some lives" in support of the economy if that life was your husband, wife, parent or child? Our family is suffering economic hardship but I would not risk a beloved family member in support of the economy.

Six People In South Carolina Die Of COVID-19 After Attending Same Funeral!!

Image
Church six elderly South Carolina residents — including a married couple — died of coronavirus a few weeks after attending the same funeral, according to a report. All six of the deceased were African Americans and over 60 years old, both categories at high risk of contracting the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, according to The State. Just to think that 90% of Americans have not been tested.

Social Distancing Has Changed The Way We Approach All Aspects Of Life And Funeral Services Are No Exception.

Image
Church with the rites of death, wearing masks, gloves and keeping socially distant has made the moments of farewell for many black Christians even more difficult. The coronavirus has brought plenty to a halt, but there are some life certainties that a national emergency cannot stop. Funeral directors are facing unique challenges with families planning to memorialize their loved ones who have died amid a national emergency with measures in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The biggest challenge is the fact that gatherings in most states are now limited to 10 people, and even those people are encouraged to remain several feet apart and not touch one another.   Condolences to the Legget family. The below video is of the funeral last weekend of COGIC Bishop J Wayne Legget.

Three California Churches Sue Government Over Stay-at-Home Order Banning In-Person Services๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž

Image
Church three churches have filed a lawsuit against California Gov. Gavin Newsom and local officials over the state’s stay-at-home order, which they say violates their freedom of religious practice.  I am tired of reading that churches are suing the government for closing them down because of this virus and the government is doing it to keep up all safe. One person in that church could be a carrier and then many other people get sick. Stop being so selfish and start thinking about your churchgoers. Some houses of worship across California and the country have disobeyed government orders and continued to meet, including one church in Sacramento that was shuttered last month after dozens of parishioners and a senior pastor tested positive for the virus.

What Is Holiness? The Miseducation of Holiness!

Image
Church Holiness is not a dress code, what church you go to, or denomination but its a lifestyle, Romans 12:1.  The Clark Sisters biopic has created a lot of buzz, noise, and conversation online, surrounding what it means for one to be holy. It’s interesting that God never describes Himself as holy until He has delivered the children of Israel from Egypt. When they were camped at the foot of Mt. Sinai for a month of instruction on how they are to live as His holy people, God says for the first time, “You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy” (Leviticus 19:2). The holiness He demonstrated in Exodus, He now states in Leviticus. This is going to help so many people.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo Takes Credit Over God For The Number Of Coronavirus Cases Going Down.

Image
Church I can't believe New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo one of the most respected men in politics just said God has nothing to do with people getting better. He just damned himself.  "The number is down because we brought the number down. God did not do that. Fate did not do that. Destiny did not do that. A lot of pain and suffering did that.” Psalm 14 King James Version (KJV) 14 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.  2 Chronicles 7:14 King James Version (KJV) 14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Evangelical Pastor Dies From Coronavirus After Holding Packed Services๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜•

Image
Church he had previously promised to keep holding services "unless I'm in jail or the hospital." - I guess he forgot to add “the grave”. Our God is a gracious God but we are created as people with free will and not free from the consequences of our choices? Was it important enough to die for?  A Virginia evangelical pastor who defiantly held large worship services even as the state's governor forbade more than 10 people from gathering in one place has died from coronavirus. Gerald Glenn, the pastor of Richmond's New Deliverance Evangelistic Church, died just a week after being diagnosed with the illness. He had previously promised to keep holding services "unless I'm in jail or the hospital."

When The Church Disobeys?!?!?!!?

Image
Church so Pastor Tony Spell held Easter Sunday service at his Life Tabernacle Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, defying the governor's orders to cease holding in-person gatherings. Some in Baton Rouge Louisiana are calling him a clown that's just trying to stir his name up to fill the void left by Jimmy Swaggart in East Baton Rouge Parish. And that he will be running for office after this screaming my constitutional rights in a Republican-heavy district. This is a textbook example of how Louisiana nutjob politicians are made. Screw the community, let's accelerate the spread because it's not about following Christ's commandment of loving your neighbor, it's about giving a democrat governor the finger while using the church as a prop on Easter Sunday. The sad thing is the media will give this clown endless airtime.

Wealthy Black Pastors Are Accused Of Not Doing Enough FOR COVID-19 Relief๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ 

Image
Church I had made mention of this last week( you can read it here ). And, now that African Americans are becoming the face of COVID-19 the question that is being asked is what is the black institutional church doing about it? In all honesty, what if they have fed, sheltered, informed, or financially helped their flock and the community they serve, we don't know if they have or have not.  Since the start of the COVID-19, or the novel coronavirus pandemic, numerous organizations and institutions have come forward to provide relief to the millions of Americans impacted by the virus. While many brands and even celebrities are stepping up to do their part to help, some are wondering if wealthy pastors within the black church community are doing the best they can to help their congregations in their time of need! Do you agree or disagree...your thoughts!
