Gospel Legend Rance Allen Has Transition From Time Into Eternity, Where Time No Longer Matter😢.

Image
Church something about the Name Jesus it's the sweetest name I know. Y'all I'm heartbroken and saddened by the news of Bishop Rance Allen’s transitioning. This man was a legend. My prayers and heart are with his family and the whole gospel music community who has been influenced by his amazing ministry. Bishop Rance Allen was the pastor of New Bethel Church Of God In Christ in Toledo Ohio, since its July 1985 establishment. In November 2011, Rance Allen was elevated to the office of Bishop in the Church of God in Christ, for the Michigan Northwestern Harvest Jurisdiction. Stellar Award winner he will be greatly missed.

U.S. Shatters Record With More Than 100,000 New Covid Cases In One Day📌

Image
Church in spite of Trump's continued claims that the country is "rounding the corner," the United States reported 100,233 new Covid-19 infections on Friday, the most ever reported by any nation in a single 24-hour span, with coronavirus outbreaks engulfing large swaths of the country and 48 of the 50 states trending in the wrong direction. All I can say is vote safely, vote early. Wear a face mask to help prevent the spread of this awful virus. Face masks make a difference. Your vote makes a difference. Support Democrat candidates up and down the ballot. The Republican governors and senators that have stepped in line with our horrific president need to be removed from office. Let’s get this done.

Mask Use Was Not Required At Church Events, And Many Attendees Choose To Not Wear One, They Are Now Paying The Price.

Church a COVID-19 outbreak, infecting 58 people thus far, has been linked to an Oct. 11 church service in Eaton County. Barry-Eaton District Health Department confirmed that the outbreak is associated with Liberty Church in Grand Ledge. Thus far, five have been hospitalized, with more cases being identified. Four are currently receiving inpatient care, none in the intensive care unit. Health officials are imploring people to talk to them. “Some people associated with this outbreak have been reluctant to speak with the health department, and we request that community members please answer the phone and speak candidly with our investigators. This helps us to stop the chain of transmission to others. The identities of COVID-19 positive individuals are held confidential.” Meanwhile, on Thursday, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services revised its epidemic order to target indoor gatherings where COVID-19 has spread most rapidly - but church services are exempt under the order.

Jerry Falwell Jr. Has Sued Liberty University, Alleging The Evangelical School Founded By His Late Pastor Father Damaged His Reputation.

Image
Church Jerry Falwell Jr. has sued Liberty University, alleging the evangelical school founded by his late pastor's father damaged his reputation in a series of public statements that followed his resignation as president and chancellor in August. Right. Because a $10.8 million severance wasn't enough. 🤦🏻‍♂️ This isn't the behavior of a man who fears God or whose conscience is shaped by the Gospel of Jesus.

Stop The Lie, Trump Is Not Doing Better With Black and Hispanic Voters📌

Image
Church everyone is trying to figure out why Black male voters are flocking to the idiot in the White House. The answer is simple: Black male voters are actually NOT flocking to the idiot in the White House. There are more that support him than there was the last presidential election, but it's not the majority by a long shot. We can't let them hijack the narrative to try to sow divisions within our community. Overall, black men are doing what they need to do regarding the election. We all can do and be better. This is why you do your homework.  “ In fact, Trump earned a smaller percentage of the total Black vote than any president in the last 40 years. Less than Reagan. Less than Romney or McCain. So, yes, Trump got 14 percent of the Black male vote but it was 14 percent of a smaller pool of Black men. “

Thousands Of The Idiot In The White House Supporters Stuck On Freezing Cold Omaha Airfield After Rally📌

Image
Church apparently they are willing to give their lives for the idiot in the White House. Between Covid, the already freezing cold weather, these people have a lot to look forward to in the next few days. Feel sorry for the children that got dragged into this mess. Anyhow, hundreds of the idiot supporters were left in the freezing cold for hours after a rally at an airfield in Omaha, Nebraska, on Tuesday night, with some walking around 3 miles to waiting buses and others being taken away in ambulances.

So Hillsong Church Is Bringing Their Gig To Atlanta📌

Image
 Church according to an online source, Hillsong Church is launching a new location in Atlanta, Georgia, led by husband-and-wife duo Sam and Toni Collier, the first-ever African-American lead pastors of a Hillsong church. “ We want to start a movement that not only changes Atlanta, but changes the world, ” Sam Collier, author, an adviser to the MLK Jr. family, and founder of A Greater Story Ministries, told the online source.  “ Just like God did with Martin Luther King Jr. in Atlanta nearly 60 years ago, there was a model that was built that went on to impact the entire world. We want to be a model of unity and understanding and bring about revival. ” The mission of Hillsong Atlanta, Collier told the source, is to “ reach and influence the world by building a large Christ-centered, Bible-based church, changing mindsets and empowering people to lead and impact in every sphere of life. ” “ Hillsong Atlanta is the marrying of many different worlds, racially, and even politically, to

Devon Franklin Hosts Faith-based Voting Event For Biden: We Need To Bring Back Justice, Civility📌

Image
Church this past Sunday, Christian TV and film producer DeVon Franklin and his beautiful wife, actress Meagan Good, hosted a virtual faith-based event in their endorsement of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. The event has caused some fake Christians to become super angry. Remind you that Donald Trump's track record for 4 years No healthcare plan, higher middle-lower class taxes, Rich people pay no taxes, over 224,000+ dead Americans, 11,000,000 unemployed Americans, 8,000,000 more Americans in Poverty, while Donald Trump used well over 100,000,000 in tax money for golf. Tell me again why we should vote for him?

Are Christians Who Observed The Sabbath On Sunday Lost?

Image
 Church you know I’ve seen a lot of talk about the SDA and this concept about the Sabbath. This should be interesting, I've been watching the conversation surrounding the Sabbath Day play out online for over a week now. And I’m just wondering if those who feel like they are keeping the sabbath (specifically Saturday) believe that they are truly keeping the sabbath. Another question I’m wondering is do they understand how to track the sabbath day. I would say from the many conversations I’ve seen about this discussion that those who claim that they are properly keeping the Sabbath especially on Saturday are wrong.  Me thinking that the sabbath for the Jews is the seventh day, Saturday, and for most Christians, it is the first day, Sunday. In either case, it is a day set aside from the other six as the day God himself blessed and hallowed, "because on it God rested from all his work which he had done in creation."   Tonight Tuesday, October,27 SDA Pastor Ivor Myers and SD

Pastor Accused of Urinating on Passenger Identified as Daniel Chalmers of Love Wins.

Image
 Church thanks to my friend Gerald Jackson at the North Carolina Beat for this news. The “well known” North Carolina pastor accused of urinating on a female passenger during a Delta airlines flight earlier this month has been identified as Daniel Chalmers, founder of a prophetic, itinerant ministry called Love Wins. Chalmers also is an ordained minister at Catch the Fire Raleigh-Durham, and according to his website, was trained at Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry. Chalmers's identity was published Monday night by The North Carolina Beat, which received a redacted police report from the Wayne Metro Airport Police Department after submitting an FOIA request.

North Carolina Megachurch Says It Won't Reopen until There Is a COVID-19 Vaccine📌

Image
Church one of North Carolina’s largest churches, World Overcomers Christian Church, says it will not hold in-person services until a vaccine for coronavirus is developed.    “ When our people are able to come back together, they’re going to want to greet one another and hug one another, and in my estimation, the risks are too great, ”   Pastor Andy Thompson, the senior pastor of the 15,000-member church, told CBS 17.    “ We have to figure out ways to minister to people beyond just them risking contact in the middle of a pandemic. ”  According to an online source, the church pointed to a recent report from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, which showed an increase in clusters of coronavirus cases linked to social gatherings. The department defines a cluster as the occurrence of five or more epidemiologically linked cases within 14 days of each other.

The Rise Of Christian Nationalism Under Trump.

Image
Church these all-white Patriot Churches, are springing up all over the country as part of a rapidly evolving network of start-up congregations that say they want to take the country back for God. What is Patriot Churches, you ask. Patriot Churches are about loving Jesus and loving this country. They belong to what religion experts describe as a loosely organized Christian nationalist movement that has flourished under Trump. What's puzzling for me is why are these hate-filled folks adopting black children? I believe that being a “Patriot Church” is contrary to the Gospel. Anyhow, below is this great article by Sarah Pulliam Bailey about the rise of these churches.   From his lectern during the worship service, Pastor Ken Peters railed against perceived attacks on First Amendment freedoms, decrying government mandates and calling masks “face diapers.” 😷 https://t.co/SmTdEcqUFf — Sarah Pulliam Bailey (@spulliam) October 26, 2020

Three Seventh Day Adventist Pastors Accused of Rape.

Image
 Church a young woman, named Danielle Simmons is bravely sharing her story of how after losing her parents in a tragic car accident at the age of 23, in 2008, she was left vulnerable and was allegedly preyed upon by so-called men of God.  Ms. Simmons names Pastors Herman Davis Sr, Marcellus Howard & (no first name) Bates , and a technician by the name of Clement Hunte r. She stated that Herman Davis a married pastor, made her feel comfortable under the guise of taking care of her as she grieved for her parents. Their ‘relationship’ took a turn when he made her feel uncomfortable, by holding her hand, stroking her, kissing her then eventually, ‘taking her virginity’. He then passed her on to his friend ‘pastor’ Marcellus Howard who then had his way with her too. She was later passed on to Clement Hunter who was a technician for the church. ( I'm the first blogger reporting this story, you can read it all here)   Saturday during services Pastor Marcellus Howard had the nerves t

White House Chief Of Staff: 'We Are Not Going To Control The Pandemic'

Image
Now we know the idiot in the White House strategy, to let as many people die as necessary so they can “Open The Country.” History for sure will reflect horribly on this idiot with FACTS. This is why you see him and his administration, encouraging folks not to be afraid of COVID, not wearing masks and holding super spreader events. They want everyone infected. Herd immunity because the Stock Market is a priority. This is evil in it’s clearest form. Over 225,000+ Americans dead. 2,000,000 projected with herd immunity. And, no one knows if you can even become immune. Which means we can all get this virus more than once.”  They’re prepared to let millions die as long as it will keep the stock market high. 

Congratulations To Cardinal-elect Wilton Gregory, Who Is Making History.

Image
Church Pope Francis said Sunday that he would raise 13 men to the rank of cardinal, including Archbishop Wilton Gregory of Washington, D.C., who will become the first Black American to receive the honor. Cardinal-designate Gregory’s promotion reinforces his standing as a major Black American leader at a time when the U.S. is debating the legacy of historic racism and many across the country are demonstrating for racial justice. He will be the first American cardinal named since 2016 when the pope elevated Cardinal Blase Cupich of Chicago, Cardinal Joseph Tobin of Newark, and Cardinal Kevin Farrell, head of the Vatican office for family issues. The pope made the announcement from a window overlooking St. Peter’s Square, following his customary recitation of the noon Angelus prayer. He said he would make the men cardinals in a ceremony called a consistory on Nov. 28.

Seven Day Adventist Church, Is A False Movement From A False Prophetess.

Image
Church Neffer Nitty was rejected by the urban apologetics community because she was discovered to be an undercover Seven Day Adventist. Her background means that her beliefs are counter to the movement of the apologetics community, according to the Urban Apologetic Community Founders Dr. Eric Mason and Damon Richardson . I have been watching this saga unfold online over this past week.  Some saints are upset that she was asked to leave the apologetics community. It appears many of the saints are confused about the SDA teachings and how they are different from the true gospel.  Some people believe this is just about the sabbath day, but no the deception is much greater. This is a different gospel. The four major cults are Christian Science, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormonism, and Seventh-day Adventist.    Christian apologetics is a field of Christian theology aimed at serving as a form of defense against certain objections that may be brought up against it. The defenses that Christian

Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Alicia Garza Was Potential Target of Armed White Supremacist Nabbed by FBI📌

Image
Church it never ceases to amaze me that with white Supremacy, gerrymandering, money, power, looting, stealing, massacres, voter suppression, burning, and lynching that white hate still needs to plot a complete takeover. Greed is a deadly sin. Anyhow one of the co-founders of the Black Lives Matters movement says she was notified by federal authorities about a possible violent plot targeting her.  Just a reminderAlicia Garza tweeted Friday afternoon about the potential threat to her life and others and used it as a rallying call for voters to help get Donald Trump out of the White House. The news followed recent reports of foiled plans to kidnap governors and overthrow state governments just days ahead of a presidential election that has a nation braced for an outpouring of anger no matter who wins. Garza, who along with Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi founded Black Lives Matter in 2013, tweeted that the FBI paid her a visit to tell her the federal law enforcement agency had arrested

An Abatement Of Imminent Hazard Order Has Been Issued To The United House of Prayer For All People Due To The COVID-19 Outbreak.

Image
Church this is an update to a story I did early in the week. It's been reported that 4 people have died and over 100 people have been infected with Coronavirus due to a convocation at the church.  Today October 24, 2020, Mecklenburg County Public Health announced that an Abatement of Imminent Hazard Order has been issued to the United House of Prayer for All People due to the COVID-19 outbreak associated with the convocation events that were held Oct. 4-11, 2020.  The convocation was held at the 2321 Beatties Ford Road Charlotte, NC location. The Imminent Hazard Order is a tool available to public health officials to use to further prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The order will be used at all House of Prayer for All People locations in Mecklenburg County. The order says that 4 people have died due to getting Coronavirus at the convocation. Over 100 people that attended the event now have Coronavirus. Mecklenburg County Public Health Director Gibbie Harris says: “We ha

On Nov. 14, Tammy Franklin will discuss her life-story and her support for husband Kirk Franklin on his road to stardom.  See the trailer below:

Salute And Respect To Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake On His Retirement.

Church congratulations to Bishop Charles E. Blake on his retirement from the COGIC organization.  May the Lord continue to richly bless him and his lovely wife. A great leader and an awesome example for Christians all over the globe. Love Bishop Blake and lady Blake. According to Sir William McCray, Bishop Blake will petition the General Board for emeritus status after 32 years on the General Board, 13 years as Presiding Bishop/Chief Apostle, and 35 years as a Bishop in the Church of God in Christ. With his retirement, COGIC is now guaranteed a new leader as well as at least (4) new members of the General Board. Indeed, 2020 has been and continues to be an unbelievable year. Credit William G.

Coronavirus Outbreak Strikes Rebellious Pastor John MacArthur's LA Megachurch📌

Image
Church John MacArthur megachurch in Los Angeles that has defied L.A. County public health orders and held indoor worship services for the last several weeks has been struck with an outbreak of the coronavirus, public health officials confirmed Thursday. Grace Community Church in Sun Valley has seen three confirmed cases, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. Public health officials are investigating the outbreak and said they will work closely with the church to help limit the transmission of the coronavirus in the church, which has an estimated attendance of 7,000. The county did not provide any further details about whether the cases were confirmed among staff or worshipers. Attorneys for Grace Community Church did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Pastor Michael Todd Is Right, Sin Does Not Send You to Hell, Rejecting Jesus Does!

Image
Curch many Christians assume that sin is what sends a person to hell. But sin has been paid for by Jesus, therefore the only thing that condemns a person is rejecting the payment for sin. Jesus was the payment. God provided the way in Jesus so to reject Him you are rejecting the only way for salvation. In other words, to leave this earth without accepting Jesus as your Savior, hell is your destination. It's not what you did but what you didn't do.   Moving right along the saints have been dragging Transformation Church Senior Pastor Michael Todd ever since one of his sermon sound bites made its way on to social media.....the young minister of the Gospel made a statement during his sermon that "Sin does not send you to hell, but unbelief does"....because of his comment during his sermon all hell has broken loose concerning the statement. If you don't understand the plan of Salvation then you will not  get what he is talking about.   View this post on Ins

Two People Dead And At Least 68 Sick As A Result Of A Black Church In Charlotte Being Open During The Pandemic.

Image
Church The United House of Prayer For All People, founded by Bishop Charles Manuel “Sweet Daddy” Grace was holding an annual gathering the weekend of Oct. 10, according to county commissioner and church member Vilma Leake. The events were held Oct. 4-11. Included in the confirmed cases mentioned above, is a cluster of six cases at Madison Saints Paradise South Independent Living. The facility reported that all residents have been tested for COVID-19. The idea that after all this time you still have pastors and parishioners believing the only way to feel Jesus is to be in the building. As a pastor, what do you say at the funeral of the person you killed? Was it worth it?

Pope Francis Did Not Embrace Same Sex Marriage, He Embrace Civil Union Laws For Same-Sex Couples📌

Image
Church Pope Francis announced his support for same-sex civil unions during an interview for a new documentary — a papal first and a historic shift for the Catholic Church. I’m not giving him credit for declaring his partial but incomplete acceptance of same-sex relationships. Civil unions are a consolation prize for people he still sees as not deserving of equality. A civil union is a legal matter & not a sacrament. It provides for such things as health insurance & life insurance coverage, beneficiaries, health care proxies, power of attorney, wills, etc. To recognize a civil union legally is not the same as marriage, which is a sacrament. Two gay people joined in a civil union are not married. There is no sacramental or religious component or recognition. Therefore, there should be no problem in recognizing a civil Union because it does not in any way change the definition of marriage.

I Look Forward To Reading This Obituary.

Image
Church, live your life in such a way that people don’t celebrate when you get a dire disease. When you peddle hate and fear, karma will eventually show up to collect. I have never been a big fan of dancing on people's graves, but I will state one fact. Rush Limbaugh is a man whose life has been so vile, the world will be a better place when he is not in it. A lifelong smoker and oxycontin user Rush Limbaugh announced via social media that his lung cancer has "gone in the wrong direction." Remember, this waste of flesh ridiculed the murder of Eric Garner saying, "I can breathe because I follow the law." Well, how you breathing now? Conservative racist talk radio show host Rush Limbaugh says he's had a setback in his fight against advanced lung cancer. Limbaugh, 69, said recent scans show "some progression of cancer." It's "not dramatic, but it is the wrong direction," he told listeners Monday, according to a transcript posted on his w

I Kid You Not, These Trump Christians Held a Huge COVID-Denying Event To Whine About Being “Non-Essential”😕

Church hiding behind God to not take responsibility for your own actions. classy. So this past weekend racist Christian right-winger franklin graham daughter held a "Non-Essential" event in which they focused on the importance of right-wing Christians voting in the election and the issues they should consider. The event was held at Calvary Chapel in Chino Hills, California, with a live audience. Other faith leaders and panelists were chosen to be speaking. In my opinion, if we had more understanding of science, we could have avoided all of this last January-February. When we missed that, we could have limited the damage with a country-wide response. We are an exceptional country, alright - exceptionally stupid.  Christians Held a Huge COVID-Denying Event to Whine About Being “Non-Essential” https://t.co/pxs52l7gIR pic.twitter.com/VbP3wTOqsg — Hemant Mehta (@hemantmehta) October 19, 2020

Thank You Alfred Street Baptist Church and Pastor, Rev. Dr. Howard-John Wesley!

Image
Church I love this young man, ministry, I'm so glad he's not apart of that cookie-cutter crowd. Alfred Street Baptist Church (ASBC) has donated $1,079,287 under their Tithe-the-Tithe Initiative to 69 community-based and national organizations to support COVID-19 relief and other needs. On Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020, ASBC’s pastor, Rev. Dr. Howard-John Wesley, announced in his sermon that 10% of all tithes raised will be donated to the community. “I believe that the black church has the opportunity and the obligation to reach into segments of our community that is always overlooked by government,” he said. “We’re taking 10 percent of everything that is raised every week and donating it to organizations that are on the front lines fighting and dealing with the coronavirus.”

When Joe Biden Wins President Dr. Fauci Will Move Us Past This Pandemic!

Image
Church I just learned yesterday that the idiot in the white house attempted to throw Dr. Fauci under the bus effectively blaming him for the spread of Covid in the United States. Made it sound as if Dr. Fauci just recently started telling people to wear a mask. It’s been months. Months. And we know that interview that Trump had back in February showed that Trump was fully aware of how lethal this pandemic would be. I don't care what anyone says, the buck stops at this idiot. The over 200,000+ Americans who have died because of his poor leadership belongs entirely to him. This president is responsible for 90% of the Covid deaths in the United States. Look that up if you doubt it. 

The Tragedy of Stanley Crouch!

Image
Church Journalist and Jazz Critic, Stanley Crouch (who I didn't even realize was still alive) died last month. I've never ever really cared for Stanley Crouch who in my opinion mind was infiltrated by white supremacy and vicious self-hatred. In the late '80s and early '90s, I used to see Crouch on television a lot, and I would wonder how could anyone hate themself so much. Crouch was the first person I ever knew of who was label by the black community as an Uncle Tom. He specialized in personal attacks against other Black writers and artists and was aligned with neocon and victim-blaming ideology. He was elevated by whites, aligned with neoconservatives, working for white supremacy. Anyhow, I saw this article and thought, "I know he was a divisive figure, but who would write a hit piece on Stanley Crouch a month after his death," and then I saw it was Ishmael Reed and knew I was in for a treat. Below is Ishmael Reed's piece on Stanley Crouch, released yest

Church Announcement: Don't Be Dissuaded From Voting.

Image
Church this year’s election arrives at a time when our country is in the midst of a once-in-a-century pandemic with over 200,000+ dead from very, very poor leadership, we’ve been warned will worsen in the coming months. Our economy is severely depressed. Our American house is deeply and dangerously divided. Fear, anger, and mistrust run rampant through the body politic. Civility is in short supply. Social media, talk radio, and cable news fan the flames, bringing out the worst in some. Public discourse has sunk to a new low. Facts, evidence, and truth no longer seem to matter as much as they should.  Anyhow, a group of Black scholars and activists have banded together to rebuke misinformation, alternative facts, and other means of dissuading African Americans from voting in the 2020 presidential election. The National Black Cultural Information Trust, a Pan-African initiative led by Washington, D.C.-based cultural communications specialist Jessica Ann Mitchell Aiwuyor, aims to counter

Did Gospel Singer Kim Burrell Really Contracted COVID 19?

Image
Church COVID 19 is not something that we need to make light of, and I don't think that's what Larry Reid was doing with his post last week. Anyhow last week Larry Reid Live did a Facebook live in which he said that he thinks that Kim Burrell might have had contracted the coronavirus. Kim did a live tonight 10/18/2020 to address Larry's post, Kim said that someone hurt Larry in his past and that is why he talks about and slander others, she then apologizes for them, whoever that is. She says he has too much talent to be doing what he does. She said she didn’t reveal she had covid because she didn’t want to alarm anyone. She's mad at Larry for saying she allegedly had Covid.

So Knot Head John MacArthur Is Urging Pastors To Reopen Churches Despite COVID-19 Restrictions📌

Image
Church John MacArthur is a knothead begging churches to open so their members will all but certainly contract a potentially lethal virus and die.  I suppose his bottom line is hurting from the lack of tithing and he doesn’t want to look selfish so he is encouraging everyone to do the same. How quickly folks forget that we’re the church and we can meet in the back yard. I wouldn’t go to an assembly anywhere that would hold meetings in the middle of a pandemic, and I sure wouldn’t care what Knothead McArthur says. I lost all respect for him years ago when he showed that he was a racist.  He just wants that money coming in. He has expenses you know! The way “Christians” are acting is driving people AWAY from Christ! Inexcusable!

What It Means To Pack The Supreme Court?

Image
Church growing up my mom would always say it's more that one way to skin a cat. I'm not going to lie to yall but this is interesting to me "Court Packing." The way the brother in the below video explains it is awesome. The US population has increased by one hundred times since we last expanded the Supreme Court to 9 justices. Judicial workload has increased exponentially. I agree that it is time to add more justices. 19 would not be too many. Democrats need to play like Republicans. For those not aware of this suddenly trendy term that dates from the FDR administration Court Packing is NOT appointing judges you approve of to fill open spots. Court-packing specifically refers to adding new seats to the court to give you the ability to appoint multiple new judges at once, shifting the balance. When the then seated supreme court was looking like they were going to rule all the new deal programs unconstitutional, FDR let it be known that if they blocked his programs, he

Bishop A. Wyoming Bazemore Jr. Facebook Live Meltdown.

This young man and his wife of a couple of months are in a position of leadership in Knightdale, North Carolina. He took to Facebook hours ago to lash out about his ungrateful wife, and how she's planning on aborting their baby. The young man has made an unsuccessful attempt at suicide lately. Some of his friends have asked him to cut the live off and not destroy his witness in this way but he flat refused to do so.

Whites Only Church😒

Image
Church kudos to that town’s residents for showing up and speaking out against this proposed relocation into Minnesota. The town residents oppose a permit for a whites-only MAGA church listed as a hate group which says it wants the future to be 'blond hair and blue eyes.' The Asatru Folk Assembly is applying for a permit to hold services in an abandoned Lutheran church in Murdock, Minnesota. Plans by a little-known whites-only church to open in a small Midwestern town drew sharp opposition Wednesday from residents, who don't want their community known as "the hate capital of Minnesota." Nearly 50 residents of Murdock filed into a town hall to largely voice opposition to the Asatru Folk Assembly (AFA) which wants to establish its Midwest regional center in the western Minnesota city that's home to less than 300 people. The AFA, based in Brownsville, California, calls its teachings an "expression of the native, pre-Christian spirituality of Europe."

Guy Breaks Stereotypes By Wearing A Skirt And Heels😕

Church this is a happily married straight guy who believes that skirts and heels are not just for women. Photos of a man sporting a variety of rather unusual combinations of men’s and women’s clothes and footwear have been doing the rounds online and sparking debates about unisex clothing. It's a no for me! I have been married for a little over 30 years and to think that I came home to find my husband dressed like this would not be such a good idea. 

Get Out Of Here, Billboard Use Words Straight Out Of Trump’s Mouth To Condemned Him.

Each image is accompanied by the text: • "Turn the other cheek". vs "I'd like to punch him in the face"  • "Blessed are the peacemakers" vs "I'd bomb the S**t out of them"  • "Blessed are the poor". vs. "If they stay poor for generations...

Here We Go Again, Contemporary Christian Music Singer Accused Of Playing With Little Boys.

Image
Church a well-known (never heard of before now) contemporary Christian music singer and songwriter Chris Rice is now facing “credible” allegations of sexually assaulting a former male student, Tates Creek Presbyterian Church in Lexington, Kentucky, announced Thursday. In my opinion, it's great to see a church do the right thing in having a truly independent investigative firm, investigate the allegations against Rice. Most churches do not and instead go into self-protection mode, including with PR ploys.  Robert H. Cunningham, the church’s senior pastor, said the allegations against Rice, who is known for hits such as “Smile,” comes in the wake of a 2019 investigation of one of their former pastors, Brad Waller, that proved he had abused “multiple students in our youth ministry.” Although Rice was not an employee of the church, he was close friends with Waller and had been hired on multiple occasions between 1995 and 2003 “to lead worship at our youth and college retreats,” Cunning

He also shared his dream of expanding Redemption into a national presence, citing Lakewood and Hillsong as examples. Carpenter founded Redemption in 1991, leading the church until he and his wife, Hope, moved to San Jose, California, in 2018. On the West Coast, they rebranded the Jubilee Christian Center megachurch under the Redemption name, and last weekend, the ministry celebrated its 29th anniversary. Some on social media are suggesting that Pastor Ron is once again lying on God, and when you don't listen to God this is what happens. If God told you to bring Gray in, guess what that was a lie. God would not tell you to leave your sheep in the hands of an adulterous low life of a man. All both of you need to be delivered with that disobedient lying spirit. WOW!

Pastor Raphael Warnock Defended Pastor Jeremiah Wright!

Image
Church Pastor Jeremiah Wright is in my opinion one of the most gifted pastors that this country has produced. Folks say that Obama was nervous to defend Pastor Jeremiah Wright during his ‘08 campaign but Pastor Raphael Warnock had no problem taking the lead after Wright’s “God damn America” sermon. Georgia’s Democratic Senate candidate Rev. Raphael Warnock was one of a number of pastors who defended Rev. Jeremiah Wright in 2008 after a tape emerged of a sermon in which Wright said “not God Bless America, God damn America.” Warnock, the pastor of the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, is in a close race with Sen. Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga., and Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga. He has picked up high-profile support from former presidents Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama.  It's been reported that some of the Faux News watchers are out to get Warnock using some Obama-era tactics after Warnock takes a lead in recent polls. They are now calling him anti-Semitic because he will not denounce Jer

Pastor Frederick Price Jr. Statement About Not Voting Was Not Received By His Followers.

Church people are looking for some kind of direction when it comes to voting from preacher/pastor/teacher like Frederick Price Jr. But instead are getting messages like don't vote at all. Most white evangelicals are speaking loud and clear while black churches are silent. Yesterday Fred Price Jr. posted a video encouraging folks not to vote and ask the question would you stop supporting a ministry over politics? The pushback he received in that post was so strong he had to do a counter post to address the people's concerns. Price made claims in the second post that California voted on gay marriage, then the court reversed the vote is the best example of why we should not even vote. What you all think, is he right? I can believe people would quit following a church because of an opinion. I don't agree with his stand on not voting. I understand why he feels that way, but I don't agree with it. I believe as Christians, we are supposed to vote. This is an extremely importan

Eli Lilly And Johnson & Johnson Pause COVID Trials✔

 Church with the death of over 200,000+ Americans because of poor leadership from the present White House administration a rush for a cure for COVID 19 has put others in harm's way.  Just six days after they said they were filing an emergency approval application for its COVID-19 monoclonal antibody drug, Eli Lilly has paused the drug’s clinical trials, citing “potential safety concerns” as the reason. October 7, 2020, Lilly touted the drug for being “effective in reducing levels of the virus that causes Covid-19 in patients, and also appears to prevent patients from visiting the emergency room or hospital,” and that it had already begun talks with the FDA on getting its emergency use authorization, according to Business Insider. Regarding the trial’s sudden pause, “multiple officials told researchers to stop adding volunteers to the study out of an ‘abundance of caution,’” according to The New York Times, which added that requests for comment from the company’s testing centers wer

This Is How Race Shapes The Way Christians Vote📌

Image
Church I think this video is by far one of the best I've seen and think that every Christian in America should watch it, rather Black or White.  This quote sums up the racial divide in politics and Christianity. Said Vischer, “The best way to explain why white Christians vote for conservative candidates and Black Christians vote for progressive candidates may simply be this: what do we see when we look in the rearview mirror?” When white Christians think of the past, they think of a time where abortion was illegal, gender roles were clearer, there was prayer in schools, and most Americans went to church. Black Christians, said Vischer, see something “very different”: fire hoses, lynchings, and church bombings. They also see politicians like Strom Thurmond fighting integration and white Christians supporting him to the point of keeping him in the Senate for five decades until he died in office at age 100.

Way To Go, Yelp To Flag Businesses Accused Of Racist Behavior📌

Image
Church I love it, Yelp has announced that it will start issuing warning labels for businesses that have been flagged for racist behavior. This means that any business receiving a verified complaint about racism will have a huge banner at the top of the screen saying that the business acted in a racist manner. Yelp told the publication Eater that this includes “the use of racist language, symbols, or sentiment that clearly discredits the Black Lives Matter movement.” The move comes after Yelp noticed a rising number of reviews alleging racist behavior from businesses. The site recorded a 133% growth in incidents spurred by media reports or social media posts compared to last year. The company says they have already put up over 450 alerts on business pages.

Pastor Marvin Sapp Talks About New Album And Dealing With Pandemic At Church.

Church I'm not a Marvin Sapp fan and have never been one, but I can say that I really enjoyed the interview he did with The Philadelphia Tribune. ( You can read it here )  The 11-time Grammy nominee is best known for the platinum-selling hits “Never Would Have Made It” and “The Best In Me.” Last year, he resigned as pastor of the Michigan-based Lighthouse Full Life Center Church, where he remains a chairman of the board of directors. He made the move to Fort Worth, Texas, where he is pastor of Chosen Vessel Cathedral.
