Dr. Juanita Bynum What Are You Doing?

Image
  Why did Dr. Bynum post this online? Is this a working altar, as some have suggested? I know that this is her honoring the Jewish Holiday Rosh Hashana....which the Jews are now entering the 10 Days of Repentance before Yom Kippur, I was just thrown by this. I’ve seen plenty of Christians have Passover Seders which is also one of the major holidays but never have I seen the holiest day of the Jewish year appropriated.  Is this appropriate for a Christian to do?

Maverick City Music Has Put The Axe To Dante Bowe🐾

Image
Rumor has it that Dante Bowe of Maverick City has been cut from the movement.  I am trying to figure out why Maverick City Music cut ties with Dante Bowe? I found the answer! 🤔🤔🤔 Sources say he was seen in a video partying with some secular artists and has been in the news over such claims a couple of times. Do you think it's a good decision for the leaders of the music group to embark on this likely ex-communication route?  

Why Should Pastors Preach On Hell?

Image
Why should pastors preach on hell? I thought warning people about Hell is a big part of preaching the gospel? I have seen the below OLD video clip going around of Dr. Matthew Stevenson saying to pastors to stop preaching HELL and preach JESUS. You can not preach the entire Gospel without messages on judgment and eternal damnation. I'll be careful about preachers who always avoid HELL.     I've listed below five good reasons why HELL should be preached:    1 . It’s in the Bible. As difficult as the subject is, pastors must proclaim the whole counsel of God.  2 . It acts as ballast for their ministries. It’s easy for pastors to drift off track by making a good thing the main thing. Preaching hell reminds us that there is no more urgent task than proclaiming to the world the good news that forgiveness of sins is offered through Jesus Christ!  3 . It reminds Christians of what’s truly at stake. Too often, Christians follow the world in thinking that this life is long and eternity i

Bishop T. D. Jakes Daughter, Sarah Jakes-Roberts, (Who Can't Preach A Lick) Was Anointed To Take The Woman Thou Art Loose Movement To The Next Leve.

Image
 Women Thou Art loose passes the torch to Woman Evolve. In the most tear-jerking, heart-soaring tribute, Bishop TD Jakes brought his daughter Sarah Jakes Roberts to the stage and promised to always cover her. He anointed her head with oil and passed the torch and his mic to her. He announced that the Women thou art loose conference was not so much leaving - but EVOLVING!!!! Before passing the mic Jake joyfully explained that where he was the voice of his generation.... she is now the voice of this new generation. Bishop Jakes shared that from the 1st day Sarah took the stage, to introduce him at a WTAL conference, he know that she would be given a Divine assignment.  He explained that this didn't happen simply because she was his daughter, it happened because of the anointing that God placed on her. So for those of us whose hearts broke when we heard that WTAL was no longer...we can now rejoice in the knowledge that our chains are broken and we still have a place to come toget

The Keynote Speaker For The Path To Prosperity Mega-Conference Is Non-other Than Bishop T.D. Jakes. Bishop TD Jakes Has Denied Being A “prosperity preacher.”

Image
What do yall think? The keynote speaker for the Path To Prosperity Mega-Conference is non-other than Bishop T.D. Jakes. Bishop TD Jakes has denied being a “prosperity preacher.” It’s interesting that in the ad for the “Path to Prosperity Mega Conference” his monikers do not include “Pastor” or “Christian.”

Bishop Charles Blake Steps Down, and Charles Blake II Is To Be Installed As Senior Pastor.

Image
Bishop Charles Blake steps down, and Charles Blake II is to be installed as senior pastor. After 53 years of heading one of the largest congregations in Los Angeles, Bishop and Lady Blake of West Angeles Church of God in Christ are stepping down as spiritual leaders and will pass the mantle to their son, current Co-pastor and Pastoral Designee Elder Charles Blake II, and his wife, Lady DeAndra Blake.   Announcing the leadership change on Sunday, Sept. 18, the Bishop said, “It has been our deepest honor and greatest joy to serve as Senior Pastor and First Lady of West Angeles Church for 53 years. After a long fulfilling journey filled with God’s love, His blessings, and miracles too numerous to count, we have made the decision to retire from active pastoral ministry.” You Can Read About It Here:

Get Out Of Here, TikTok Suspends Pastor Mark Driscoll For Saying ‘Men Can’t Have Babies’🐾

Image
Mark Driscoll, founding and senior pastor of Trinity Church in Scottsdale, Arizona, has dealt with the controversy surrounding his ministry since planting Mars Hill Church in 1996 and then Trinity Church in 2016. TikTok temporarily suspends Mark Driscoll for keeping it real. Driscoll, who has been accused of bullying staff members, elders, church leaders, and congregants throughout his years of ministry, has never hesitated to tell it as he sees it—even sometimes screaming it in his sermons.  This time, the world of social media took issue with Driscoll. TikTok temporarily suspends Mark Driscoll from posting on their platform for, according to him, arguing that men cannot bear children. The video appears to have been removed from the platform. “What happens on TikTok when you say that men can’t have babies,” Driscoll tweeted alongside an image of his TikTok account status, which indicated that he had been temporarily prevented from posting due to “multiple violations” of TikTok’s commu

Does Going To Church Guarantee A Healthy Relationship With God?🐾

Image
Of course not. Too many believe attending church is synonymous with having a personal relationship with God, but that’s not true. Having a personal relationship with God involves more than just attending church. God doesn’t only want us to attend church; he wants a personal relationship with us. I don't think for one minute Dr. Evans meant that the only relationship you can have with God is at church. Having a personal relationship with God can be done anywhere.....being aware of God’s presence in our lives and knowing that he is always with us, it’s talking to him through prayer and allowing Him to speak to us through the bible. It’s leaning on him, confiding in him, and trusting in him over anyone else.  People say, “I don’t have to go to church to be a Christian,” and they are right. Salvation is through faith alone in Christ alone. You also don’t have to go home to be married—but stay away long enough, and your relationship will be affected. - Dr. Tony Evans .  I like this thou

Christian Nationalist Al Mohler Says Evangelicals Who Don’t Vote Republican Are Being ‘Unfaithful’

Image
Southern Baptist leader Albert Mohler says Christians who don't vote for Republicans are “unfaithful” to God. This comes years after he (rightly!) said voting for Trump would “allow a national disgrace to become the Great Evangelical Embarrassment.”Recently it's alleged Mohler said he was a Christian nationalist. Now we have him saying that anyone who doesn’t vote his way is an unfaithful Christian. Well, at least we now have him on record saying this out loud. Just to remind everyone, Mohler voted for Trump in 2020. And I also wonder what this means for the identity of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary over which he presides? Are there any faculty members who vote Democrat? Are there any faculty members who oppose their president’s belief that we must try to change the world through the pursuit of political power? Are those who reject Mohler’s Christian nationalism? If so, do they have the courage to speak? Mohler talks about winning people to Christ. When he discipl

Christian Rap Artist Lecrae Has Reignited Debate About Deconstructing Faith🐾

Image
In a series of posts on Twitter, musical artist and producer Lecrae has challenged the notion that Christian 'deconstruction' is always bad, arguing that there are two types; one 'healthy' and the 'dangerous'. One type of deconstruction is healthy and involves "using scriptures to deconstruct unhealthy ideas and practices" and the other is unhealthy because it "questions the bible on account of it not lining up with culture. He’s got a point. Western civilization Christianity is so watered down. We need to dig deep, unpack, take apart and figure out the workings of the faith. Something tells me pastors are going to have a problem with this because it’s going to interrupt their “teachings.“  

The Heat That Dr. Juanita Bynum Is Getting For Charging For Her Prayer Training Institute😏

Image
Now, I wasn’t gonna say anything regarding the whole Dr. Juanita Bynum Prayer Institute Registration thingy that seems to be taking social media by storm. I'm not sure why people are so shocked by the $1500 fee for the prayer class when Dr. Juanita Bynum back in the day had a $1000 prayer line at Mega Fest and she made it crystal clear for all the people who were walking down the isle that “if you have $100, this is NOT your line.”  Oh yea, I remember well. I believe overall the marketing is the reason for the social media backlash. When it comes to marketing an event presentation is key. When it comes to paying honorariums for events you have to be clear.  Not only for Gospel artists but secular artists, authors, politicians, and more. Everyone has a fee. It’s just how you present your brand...which in this case is what causes the problem.   Anyhow, some supporters of Dr. Juanita Bynum are saying that she has labored extensively in the kingdom over the years. And along the way, sh

Auntie Stacey Abrams Is Coming To New Birth😏

Image
This Sunday New Birth welcomes the Democratic nominee for Governor, Stacey Abrams. It is always impactful when black people who are seeking public office can show they have skin in the game, & not just skin color. Black people need access to resources.  As the next governor of Georgia, Stacey Abrams will fight to ensure safe and legal access to abortion in Georgia.  "As a church and as a community, we are fully engaged and look forward to hearing her vision for a better Georgia for everyone. Join us this Sunday and hear from one of the greatest leaders in our nation. After service, join her for a special appearance at the New Black Wall Street for an open discussion, this event is open to the public! Tag a friend and tell them Auntie Stacey is coming to church."

Is Brett Favre A Welfare Queen Are A Criminal Fraudster?

Image
Low Life Former NFL quarterback Brett Favre, who enthusiastically endorsed the former idiot Donald Trump in the 2020 election, has been implicated in a potentially fraudulent welfare scheme in which funds intended for Mississippi's neediest residents were used to build a volleyball center at the University of Mississippi, where his daughter was a student who just happened to play volleyball. Reacting to this scandal, Fox Sports analyst Shannon Sharpe raked Favre over the coals for being involved in a fraud scheme even though he is personally a multimillionaire thanks to his lengthy career in the National Football League. "You've got to be a sorry mofo to steal from the lowest of the low!" Sharpe thundered. "Mississippi is the poorest state in our country... Brett Favre is taking from the underserved! You made $100-plus million in the NFL." Sharpe then read off some damning text messages that Favre sent to former Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant in which he fr

Christians Against Halle Bailey The Little Mermaid😣😣

Image
  Disney’s next live-action movie will be released next year. It’s The Little Mermaid and stars Halle Bailey as Ariel, the title character. There’s just one problem: Halle is black. So, of course, the racists are losing their minds. This group caught my attention, with the best bit of their description being the “REAL” mermaid is white. Using the beliefs of Christians to boycott a beautiful great actress from being the little mermaid because she is black.  Help me make this make sense??? The little mermaid is a fictional character. Seriously, there are people who took the time out to create a Facebook group against the Little Mermaid being played by Halle Bailey and of course, they had to be Christians. 🤨Umm.. not sure if they know the definition of a Christian.  

Low Life California Pastor Pleads Guilty For Illegally Exploiting More Than $100,000 In Homeless People’s SNAP Benefits😏😏

Image
Four leaders of a California church have pled guilty to participating in a labor trafficking scheme that forced homeless people to give up their welfare benefits and panhandle. Victor Gonzalez, pastor of Imperial Valley Ministries and his wife, Susan Christine Gonzalez, and two other church leaders, Jose Diaz and his wife Mercedes Gonzales, pleaded guilty in federal court last week to recruiting homeless people in San Diego and other cities, then forcing them to participate in raising money on behalf of the El Centro-based church, The Times of San Diego.  

Toledo Pastor Pulls Gun On The First Lady🐾

Image
A Toledo pastor is charged with aggravated menacing and domestic violence after  pulling a gun on the First Lady. According to a court document Pastor Charles Ross "loaded a firearm and stated 'is it going to end while he held the firearm in front of the victim." He pleads not guilty to the charges. He was fingerprinted and told to stay away from his wife. The church will decide if he will be allowed back in the pulpit.   

Marshall Mathers, Professionally Known As Eminem Is "Billboard" No 1 Christian Chart Song.

Image
I hate what has happened to the Christian Music industry. The world has just about all but completely now been surrounded by deception. What's sadder is that the Christian music industry acknowledges it. Using God as a gimmick to sell records is a fashion right now. Mainstream sees there is an audience and a following in the Christian community so, of course, they will make a crossover song.  Rapper Eminem has earned Billboard's recognition for No. 1 song for over 20 years since he released his first album, this time on the Christian chart. Eminem, born Marshall Mathers III, added his own verse to DJ Khaled's remix of Kanye West's song "Use This Gospel," released on the rapper's gospel album in 2019. It is also Khaled's first No. 1 song on the chart, and West's fifth. (You Can Read About It Here)

Britney Spears Says "I don't believe in God anymore"🐾

Image
Britney Spears has revealed she no longer believes in God because of the way her family has treated her The pop star, who was baptized as a Southern Baptist as a child, declared in a voice message posted to her Instagram page on Monday that she had rejected religion as a result of ongoing tension between herself and her sons Preston, 16, and Jayden, 15, following the termination of her conservatorship last November. "It saddens me not one of you has valued me as a person," she stated. "You've witnessed how my family has been with me...Honestly, my dad needs to be in jail for the rest of his life. But as I said, God would not have let this happen to me. If a God existed. I don't believe in God anymore because of the way my children and my family have treated me. There is nothing to believe in anymore. I'm an atheist y'all."  

More Than 100 Students Baptized Without Parents’ Permission At North Carolina School😏😏

Image
I’m actually against this and think that the school definitely overstepped its boundaries. Baptism is an intimate decision that takes a lot of consideration and at least some studying before going through with it. It’s one of the most important, if not the most important choices you will ever make. For a school to baptize children without telling their parents is in my opinion the same overstepping of parental rights as teaching the students against their family beliefs. The parents are the owners of their children (after God) and for a school to do anything without parental knowledge and consent is unethical and should not be done nor allowed. You don’t just up and emergency baptizes kids that aren’t yours. I firmly believe baptism is probably the most important decision one can make. But you can’t force that decision on someone as it invalidates the legitimacy of the choice, and you certainly shouldn’t overstep parental rights. What do you all think about this? Do you agree with t

Should A Pastor Preach Differently Depending On The Congregation?

Image
On Sunday I made a Facebook post saying that I was totally surprised that Pastor E Dewey Smith had preached at Steven Furtick's Elevation Church that following morning. I note that Steven Furtick is considered to be one of Bishop T.D.Jakes's spiritual sons in the ministry and some say so is Smith. Under the post in the comment section, I had to clarify why I was surprised by this I didn't want folks to get the wrong idea. Smith and Furticks have two very different congregations and styles of preaching.     

Billy Graham Said That “God Does Everything In His Power To Keep You Out Of Hell” Is He Right?

Image
I posted the below clip on my Facebook page last night. It has gotten a couple of shares with plenty of folks being in disagreement with what Billy Graham said, “ God does everything in His power to keep you out of Hell.”  Some are accusing Graham of preaching a god who fails. When the Bible doesn’t reveal God as someone who fails. I agree with Billy Graham, the Bible teaches that God did not create hell as a judgment for humanity. God created hell for the punishment of the devil and his angels. Hell was not created for humanity, but it is the destination for those who reject God’s salvation in Jesus Christ. Some say that Hell is not a geographical place, but a state of existence, that's neither here nor there.   Jesus spoke of it as a place of eternal punishment.  

“Honk for Jesus, Save Your Soul” It's A NO For Me🐾

Image
I am so disappointed with the movie “Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul.” I was expecting a comedy. It was a bit too serious for me. It poked & made mockery about situations that are way too serious to laugh at. I get what (who) the movie was based on but something was just off to me. I loved all the characters/actors on there and they did good but it just fell flat to me. The acting was phenomenal but the storyline was a bit much to laugh at. Honk for Jesus was set in Pastor E. Dewey Smith's beautiful Decatur’s House of Hope.   Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul. is a satirical comedy starring Regina Hall as Trinitie Childs - the proud first lady of a Southern Baptist megachurch, who together with her husband Pastor Lee-Curtis Childs (Sterling K. Brown), once served a congregation in the tens of thousands. But after a scandal forces their church to temporarily close, Trinitie and Lee-Curtis must reopen their church and rebuild their congregation to make the biggest comeback that commo

Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans Are A Threat To The Very Soul Of This Country.

Image
President Joe Biden warned the nation during a rare prime-time address last night that the idiot trump and “MAGA republicans” who continue to claim the 2020 election was stolen pose a big threat to America’s democracy. President Biden made his arguments ahead of the midterm elections while GOP leaders accuse him of dividing the country. Thank you President Joe Biden for defending the Soul Of The Nation from the threat of extremist MAGA Republicans.  Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans are a threat to the very soul of this country. — Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) September 2, 2022
