The Jezebel Spirit Is Born Of Witchcraft And Rebellion.

Image
The New Destiny Christian Center yesterday officially announced  what had been widely rumored that Rev. Paula White has been selected as the successor to Zachery Tim's.   Paula White will assume her duties as senior pastor during the mega church's annual New Year's Eve services on Saturday.  Article Here!

 I believe with the appointment of Paula White and  all her baggage to head New Destiny  Christian Church is  proof positive that we as Christians no longer value the BIBLE good book.  We as a Christian Society have adapted Scripture to fit a changing world and society. There's no Scripture available what so ever to support the decision of this board.  God in all His wisdom said I change not.

Nicki Minaj Does A Little Evangelizing Via Twitter Christmas Morning.

Image
What is Evangelism? It's simply telling others about the Gospel of Christ. Now I know most folks  think of evangelism as something that the preacher is paid to do on Sunday morning.  But of course the  Bible doesn't  teach that.  It do teach  that "EVERY" Christian has a mandate  and responsibility to evangelize were ever they go.  "Always be ready to make a defense to every one who asks you to give an account of the hope that is in you." 1 Peter 3:15.
Question is it possible to evangelize via "Social Media"? Is tweeting  Bible verses a form of Evangelism?

There's an interesting article over at  The Christian Post that state on Christmas morning Nicki Minaj heart was touche in a special way when she decided to tweeted to her thousand of twitter fans the Bible verse John 3:16.  One of Nicki many fans posted a comment in response to a another comment  made about the lifestyle of Ms. Minaj:
In this situation it doesn't matter whether she is …

Some Foolishness Will Cause Jesus To Stand Up???

Image
Some of the foolishness that's taking place in our community and world today will make Christ stand up.  Alot of this foolishness have so convince me that Jesus promise to His disciples that He would come again is in fact fast approaching  sooner than we can think. The almost riot that have taken place  over a pair of shoes and the murder of a young man over a piece of candy is about the saddest thing I have heard in a long time.

A Church Member Hired Private Security For Church Service?????

Tensions between members of Friendship Baptist Church in York have escalated to the point that one of them had asked for police presence at the church on Christmas Day.
Two men in brown sport coats and the word "security" on their black turtlenecks were standing outside Friendship Baptist Church Christmas morning.
They identified themselves as employees of Morgan Investigation Services and said they were contracted by the church's board of elders.

That  Radio One has made the decision to take all Matthew Knowles related songs off the air.  Matthew Knowles’ Music World Music is listed in a lawsuit file by Ms. Hughes because his company brokered a deal for the Essence Music Festival that's broadcasted on TV One. His company is being accused of re-issuing the content to BET, MTV and BET’s Centric Network despite TV One’s four-year exclusivity agreement. article here!

Why Can't We Love What God Love?????

Image
I am burnt-out, dog-tired and exhausted with this discussion foolishness 'Light Skin vs. Dark Skin' with-in the black community. How in the world can we as a people make a claim to love God and at the same time hate the skin color HE preferred,favor,desire,chose to seen us to the earth in? It's crazy and it's a slap in the face of a loving God. In researching for this article I found a very sad blog post title I Hate Being Black.

In 2009 the Pew Research Center's Forum on Religion and  Public Life released a new analysis that paints a detailed religious portrait of African-Americans. The analysis finds that African-Americans are markedly more religious than the U.S. population as a whole on a variety of measures, including reporting a religious affiliation, attendance at religious services, frequency of prayer and the importance of religion in people's lives. article here!  Sometimes  I have a hard time believing we are people of faith.

Paula White Is Now NDCC New Pastor?

Image
According to the quote posted below Paula White is the new pastor of NDCC. Also according to Joy 105 it is true.
 I went to NDCC but no more. We were very upset when we heard the announcement Sunday and no one was happy. I’m absolutely appalled by T.D. Jakes for not standing up for righteousness and saying something! He’s her spiritual father so he could’ve told her not to do that to us, but I guess people were right about him. 1st Eddie Long, now Paula White. Furthermore, it’s been circulating around New Destiny that they actually did pick one of the candidates but Paula stepped in and said she’ll take over. So much for praying and getting God’s wisdom and someone with Pastor Zach’s DNA. I’m taking my membership and moving on. I love you NDCC family, but of something doesn't change I’ll never go back, and others feel the same way.Well, Well now  I understand why Bishop  I.V Hilliard resign from the  bishop panel that was form to recommend  a new pastor.  So the  allegations of mis…

Do The Role Of The First Lady Include Fighting!??

Image
At New Salem Missionary Baptist Church last Sunday a fight broke out in the church during the Communion services.    Members watched as a brawl broke out right in the middle of service and the police had to be call. The police have now launched an investigation. A couple of message boards are reporting it was the first lady and the pastor mistress who got into the fight. There are also reports that pastor Frank E Ray is known for this kinda of church foolishness. This is not the first time that a incident like this has taken place under Ray's leadership.

The fight was  between two women near the church's choir section which turned into a brawl between the two families, according to a police report. When officers arrived, only three people from the brawl were left and they're all listed as both suspects and victims.
Question why won't black folks do a better job of vetting  these pastor/preachers before choosing them as leaders?

Christian Nightclubs Are Becoming Popular!

Bishop I.V.Hilliard Said He Will Not Compromise His Integrity!?!?

Image
The video message that is posted below the break  was one recently sent out by Bishop I.V. Hilliard of New Light Christian Center in Houston, Texas.  In the clip below  Bishop I.V. Hilliard tells his church that he has decided to step down from the Bishop’s Council Committee that was designed to help New Destiny Christian Center of Orlando,Florida. The church of the Late Pastor Zachery Tims with their transition and selection of a new pastor. From my understanding of the clip it sounds as if  Bishop Hilliard is saying something in the milk ain't clean.  And for him to continue with his involvement in the committee  would  corrupt his integrity. There's another bishop who have  decided to do the same. Check out the quote and clip! Source.
“After being involved for sometime in the process, I have decided to resign my position on this Bishop’s council. My commitment to integrity will not allow me to support something that I believe is deceptive and compromises the previously agree…

The Church Have The Right To Fire You For Living In Sin.

Image
An appeal court in Santa Ana has upheld the decision of a lower court ruling in favor of Red Hill Lutheran Church of Tustin for its firing of preschool director, Sara Henry. Who was living while unmarried with her boyfriend with whom she had a child.   I think the court was correct in its ruling in favor of the church in this case.     Ms. Henry signed an agreement before she was employed by this church to live a lifestyle that was pleasing to the church and she fell to holdup her end of the agreement.

Newt And King David?!?!?

It's amazing to me that a man like Newt Gingrich who have cheated on his bedridden cancer-stricken wife. Can even be consider in the same thought and breathe as King David is beyond me.  This low life of a man served  his ill wife her divorce papers in her hospital bed.  And now "The Conservative Evangelical" circle are trying to hold him up as a "family values" candidate by comparing him to King David is just down right crazy. Now if not mistaken David was reprimanded and loses his first child as punishment for his sins.  Can someone tell me exactly what  have old Newt lost for his sinning ways?  Don't get me wrong  God still bless Daivd and his dynasty; with a second child (with the wife he stole) Solomon, who goes on to build the first Jewish Temple.

Have Today Church Made Jesus Needy?!?

Image
Every Christians know that Jesus has "Supreme Authority" and in that He don't need us. In the sermon that I have posted below the break is a awesome and wonderful sermon preach by Voddie Baucham of Grace Family Baptist Church.  I heard about the teaching of this powerful man of God back in 2008 when he came under fire for criticized the Palin selection as being anti-family.

The Jesus that Pastor Baucham is preaching about out of the book of Revelation is not the Jesus that is sung nor preach about in most of our churches today.  In the book of Revelation Jesus is“King of kings, and Lord of Lords.” He is riding triumphantly on a white horse—a symbol of conquest (19:11-16). He is faithful and true and, consistent with his holy character, he will “judge” and “make war.” The judging will be between the godly and the ungodly; this is the war that signifies  the punishment to be inflicted upon the rebellious those who reject Christ. The title of the sermon is "Brokenness&…

Bishop Jake's Call Out The Conservative Right For Their Foolishness!

Image
Bishop T.D. Jakes, pastor of The Potter House in Dallas Texas, call out the conservative right for supporting former House Speaker Newt Gingich. Because they are leery of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's Mormon faith.

Appearing Sunday on TV One's "Washington Watch with Roland Martin," Jakes said he's mystified over how people can question Romney's religious faith but can back the thrice-married, twice-divorced Gingrich who had an affair with a congressional aide - now his thrid wife - as he was leading the charge for impeachment of then-President Bill Clinton over his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

Am I The Only Black Person Who Don't Like The Temptation Version Of Silent Night?!

Image
For me on a personal level this is the worst version of this song I have every heard. I don't no if my dislike for this version of "Silent Night" is solely link to my hearing  it in the night clubs growing up or what. But back in my BC days this version of Silent Night was the most played song in almost every night club in the south doing the holidays.   For some unknown reason I didn't like it then and I don't like it now. I especially don't care to here this version sung in church. I was once at a church musical during the holiday season when a group representing a well known church in the city had the nerve to sing this version. I almost threw up in my mouth. I have always embraced and loved  the Temptation music but I just can't get with this one song. Now the lineup for this version was Otis Williams, Dennis Edwards, Melvin Franklin, Richard Street and Glenn Carl Leonard. Question Am I the only black person who don't  like Silent Night by the…

Lowe's A Coward For Pulling Ads From TLC Show "All-American Muslim Show"

Image
It look like the hardware retail giant Lowe's has pulled its commercials from all future episodes of TLC's reality TV show "All -American Muslim" the chain said last week. Now, I am a Christian not a Muslim.  I have to say, I just don't understand why there is so much hatred for American Muslims and why would Lowe's cave in to this foolishness coming from the Conservative Right?  It's clear to me that Islam as a whole is not against America and it's values. It's the "extremists" that are in and are part of Islam that are pushing the hatred toward Americans. The group that made Lowe's bow down is The Florida Family Assocation which  has a long history of not only attacking Muslims but also President Obama, entertainment companies and the LGBT community. Shame on Lowe's!

Should The First Lady Go Down With Her Husband-Pastor?!?!?!?

Image
It look like the city of West Palm Beach Fl is not only questioning  Bishop Harold Ray of Redemptive Life Fellowship Church. They also might be looking at the spending of the first lady. In an effort to prove that  4.1 million dollars federal money meant for 30 low-income homes didn't get used to line Bishop Ray  and first lady Brenda Ray pockets.  Now some folks on  A message board that I visit sometime were discussing Bishop Ray and  first lady Ray over the top lifestyle. The members on the  board mention that they had read a article that stated  the first lady had ran up a 40,000 credit-card debt on lavish cruises and high fashion. And  according to the board first lady Brenda who's a prominent preacher mostly bought jewelry, Louis Vuitton bags and Chanel clothes that she now appears unable to reimburse. Question if the bishop is found guilty of wrong doing should the first lady go down with him? Article here!

Have Your Church Decided To Cancel Christmas Morning Services?

Image
Is cancelling Christmas on Sunday December 25  a good or bad idea? There's a debate raging online about this crazy idea of having "No Church on Christmas Day" Some Christian Churches are confused about what to do. I believe I can speak for most black churches in saying  there will be church as usual on Sunday December 25, 2011.  If you desire to come out and worship with the saints on Christmas morning  by all means the doors of our church will be open and you are welcome.  By the same token if you decide to stay home and open gifts on that morning know this  the worship service will continue with or with out you.   If you know me, you know I was raise and reared  in the construct of the black church. I am  not ashamed of it nor am I embarrassed by it. I have never heard of any church in my community cancelling church because of Christmas. The very idea not to have church on Christmas is a sign, to me, that the Christian Church have watered down the birth of Christ to t…

The Top 5 Regrets In Life Before Dying!

The article I have posted below is  written by  Bronnie Ware, a palliative care worker who has worked with a countless number of patients who are sadly seeing their last days on earth.

Eddie Long Must Go?!?!

Image
Who said Eddie Long must go? If the people who are doing the protesting at New Birth Church are not the members of that congregation. Then they don't have a leg  to stand on nor do they have the power to force Eddie Long out. From what I understand these people are not members of the church.   In no way do I support nor do I embrace this kinda of foolishness. This protesting  that's taking place at New Birth Church is in no way biblical.  If  I am wrong here I would like for someone to point me to the Scriptures that do support this. The only people who have the power to force Bishop Eddie Long out of his pulpit are the tithing  members of  his church. If the tithes dry up then that particular church building will cease to be. Protesting because a man won't leave a church is harmful counterproductive to me.

Ms. Vanessa Long Have Decided To Leave Her Marriage.

Image
Vanessa Long, the wife of Bishop Eddie Long has made a decisions to exit her marriage. Ms. Long has filed for divorce and it was announced today. Bishop Eddie  Long married Vanessa Griffin in 1990. They have three children together Edward, Jared and Taylor. The lawsuit dismissals, first reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, prevent the four defendants from suing Long again for the same alleged offense. The accusations made against Long by Anthony Flagg, Spencer LeGrande, Jamal Parris and Maurice Robinson alleged that the bishop used his influence, trips, gifts and jobs to coerce them into sexual relations.

"After a great deal of deliberation and prayer, I have decided to terminate my marriage to Bishop Eddie L. Long. Accordingly, I authorized my attorneys to file for divorce on December 1, 2011," Vanessa Long said in a statement. Also in Vanessa Long's statement: "It is my sincere hope that this matter can be resolved expeditiously, harmoniously, and fairly. …

Is The Spirit Of Lust To Blame For The Take Down Of Herman Cain?

Image
Why do great and powerful men like Herman Cain who have work so hard for 20, 30 or 40 years to build their career then allow the spirit of  LUST to destroy everything they have work for? I ask that because Ginger White, the Atlanta businesswoman is claiming she had a 13-year affair with GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain. Ms. White was on "Good  Morning American" this morning repeating that it was an affair. Ms. White told George Stephanopoulosthat “I can’t make this stuff up not in a million years could I make this stuff up.” Now for some reason I'm believing Ms. White more than I did the other women.  I'm not saying she's telling the truth but I believe there's more truth to her statement than the others.    I also believe Lust is the number one weapon in Satan arsenal of supplies that he uses to destroy the believer. All students of the Bible are familiar with the fall of Samson and David because of Lust.

The news of their partnership was reported early by TMZ. Article Here!  A reality show without any drama. I wonder how that will go?!?

Is The Black Mega Church Responsible For The Surge In Atheism?!?!?

Image
I wonder what's going on? With the latest poll stating there's a strong belief in God among African American. Then on the other hand you have more African American attending church on a regular. So, just how is it that  the  black atheists of America are one of the fastest growing groups on Facebook and the internet with over 2,793 members? Someone stated in a article I read  that the black church and the mega church are partly to blame for the surge in the lack of belief in the existence of GOD. Now I don't subscribe to nor do I support that statement at all.    I don't believe you can reason with anyone who have embraced the idea there's no GOD. But  to blame the church is a little far fetching to me. People who claim atheism always  remind me of  the old testament  King Nebuchadnezzar i really don't know why that is.
