Rev. Harold Carter Jr. to Preside Over Funeral for Freddie Gray; Rev. Jamal Bryant to Deliver Eulogy

These two great men of God will be working together at Freddie Gray's funeral. However, we sincerely hope they both encourage African Americans to love and unite.  We believe God has allowed black men to be gunned down, simply because too many black people have not served Him nor love and respected each other.   Therefore, in the 21st century, history seems to be repeating itself.

According to, funeral services are to be held on Monday for Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old black man whose death from a spinal cord injury while in police custody has set off protests that took a violent turn over the weekend.

May Freddie Gray among other black men rest in peace.

Kirk Franklin Want First Lady Erica Campbell Haters To Leave Her Alone!!

Gospel Artist Kirk Franklin has announced for all haters of Erica Campbell to leave her alone.  One of the things we realize is this, those who judge her should examine themselves.  Most times, people who focus on others do not even know how to love and forgive.  We agree with Kirk Franklin, let's just thank God she's still here and reaching out to lost souls.  If her songs are unholy, let God examine her and let's just pray.

GoFundMe Shuts Down Campaign for Christian Bakers Asked to Pay $135,000 Fine for Refusing to Make Cake for Gay Wedding

The popular website, GoFundMe shut down the account, in support of Aaron and Melissa Klein who once owned a bakery.   The Christian couple was trying to raise money, after being fined by a judge for declining to make a wedding cake for a same sex couple.

According to, Fundraising site GoFundMe has closed the account that was set up to raise money for Aaron and Melissa Klein, Christians and former owners of a bakery in Gresham, Oregon, who were ordered by a judge Friday to pay a fine of $135,000 for declining to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian marriage ceremony.

Just like in the cases of the owner of the pizza restuarant in Indiana and the florist in Washington, God can send people to donate money to this Christian couple. In the meantime, we will keep Aaron and Melissa Klein in our prayers.

Pacific Mount Olive Church of God in Christ to Celebrate 92 Years of Christian Ministry and Service

When you do research on various black churches in America, you will be amazed of how long they have existed.  Pacific Mount Olive COGIC has been around for 92 years.  Supt. Milton and Lady Belinda Joyner are the leaders of this sanctuary in Los Angeles and the church members are very proud of their heritage and they should be.

According to, the Pacific Mount Olive Church of God in Christ (PMO) will celebrate 92 years of service to God and to the community on Sunday, April 26, at 4 p.m., in the main sanctuary located at 1385 East 21st Street in Los Angeles.  The church was organized in 1923 during a house prayer meeting. Elder Johnny Robins was the first pastor. Later, Bishop Charles Harrison Mason, founder of the Church of God in Christ denomination, assigned the late Bishop E. B. Stewart to lead the congregation. 

We pray that Pacific Mount Olive COGIC is around for 100 more years, for their is a need for the black church to remain in holiness, which is not a doctrine, but God's Word.

Alabama Megachurch's 'Secret Church' Gathering Receives Threat; Moved to Undisclosed Location

We are not sure why the Church at Brooks Hills were receiving threats, but there were so many, the church has been now holding their services at a disclosed location.   God does not want his people to be afraid.  No matter how many people may send threats for speaking the truth against sin or for whatever reason, we are supposed to be strong.

According to, the Church at Brooks Hills in Birmingham evacuated the entire campus Friday after receiving a threat of violent acts hours before its planned Secret Church event, which was to be led by International Mission Board President David Platt. The gathering was instead held in the night at an undisclosed location amid police investigation.
"We want to ensure the safety of our staff and members, and all those who are going to participate," Chris Kinsley, the Church's communications director, told Yellowhammer. "We live in a world where our fellow Christians around the world face threats on a daily basis. We're lucky enough to live in a country where that is unusual, but when it does happen we want to take it seriously but also not allow it to cause us to shrink back from the message we have to share."
In the simulcast, Platt covered the topics of slavery and sexuality, based on Leviticus 25:35-43 and 1 Corinthians 6:18-20.

What Does God think about Strippers Performing at Funerals??? Lord Jesus, Help Us!!

In China, stripping at funerals is becoming popular, but the Chinese government does not condone it.  We must say, according to Ecclesiastes there's nothing new under the sun.  No doubt, stripping at funerals will possibly cease.  God does not agree with stripping at funerals.

According to The Old Black Church, the funeral industry in America overall is moving towards a life celebration and those that adapt and work to honor the deceased last requests will continue to succeed. In the United States, in the last couple of years there has been a growing trend towards personalized funerals and while they are often interesting I have yet to see a request of this kind. But I am sure in the coming future if that is a person's last wish someone will be willing to honor them.

We will keep you posted on any further updates, if necessary.
