Celebrity Hollywood News: Tommy 'Tiny' Lister will plead guilty to conspiracy to commit mortgage fraud


Celebrity Tommy 'Tiny' Lister is facing up to 5 years in prison for conspiracy to commit fraud.  He bought a home back in 2010 for $2.5 million dollars in Calabasas, California, the same town where Katherine Jackson and the kids of the late Michael Jackson reside.   He and his co-conspirators are allegedly guilty of defrauding lenders out of millions of dollars.   The fact that he had plead guilty in federal court is a positive thing, because most people who break the law, do not admit they have done wrong.  However, Lister has claimed to know Jesus Christ, so it does not surprise us that he is an honest man and has a conscious, although we do not agree with his profanity in previous movies.

According to TheExaminer.com,  Tommy 'Tiny' Lister has been accused of conspiring to commit fraud, allegedly scamming banks out of millions of dollars. Many celebrity's homes are going into foreclosure, this is how bad the recession is, so we would not be surprised how many more celebrities may get caught like Tommy 'Tiny' Lister'.  The reason we feel this could be possible is, some celebrities will do anything to keep their image up with those whom are not financially in debt.   There is a great possibility that Lister wanted to make sure he would not be facing poverty and the media would find out about it and so he allegedly joined his conspirators on this mortgage fraud.   For whatever reason, he will not have to face a judge for what he has done.

In the meantime, we will be praying for Tommy 'Tiny' Lister and hopefully, he has repented for what he has done and God will intervene on his behalf.

Christian Pastor Turns Atheist: God gives everyone a free will to serve Him

 Fonza asked us to remove photo, it's removed.

It surprises us how many African Americans have left God, after He freed us from slavery in America.   We pray for this ex-pastor of the United Methodist Church, Dr. Annalise Fonza, because her journey seems to have been a very hard one, possibility not understanding God, but being confused by man-made theology.   You know, God is very real and created so many things around us to prove His existence, regardless of the evil we face in this world.   First, humanity of every race, animals, heaven and earth.   Specifically, God has proven His existence to African Americans by releasing us from the satanic forces of slavery.   We must not forget our ancestors were in bondage for over 400 years and He made a way for us to receive His Word.  Now, no matter how our ancestors received God's Word, we got it and He set us free, just like the children of Israel, after they called upon Him.

Before African Americans were free in America, atheism was unheard of within the black community.   It is so sad to admit, but the fact is, when African Americans had a much difficult time in this country before the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, it was not a popular thing for them to become an atheist.  It was the black church that united in prayer against white supremacy and they believed God for us to some day be free and have the same equality as white Americans.   The black church was a place to run whenever there was friction within our society and God was present every time a soul called on Him to escape racial conflict across the nation.  Now, we have become so diverse, there seems to be a great falling away and many spirits of black people have agreed with other races of unbelievers, there is no God.   Therefore, through various prophecies, there will be a national disaster in the future as we have revealed to you through Prophet John Paul Jackson and if that is what it is going to take to get many people to repent and backsliders to turn back to God, then so be it, because again, God is very real and earth belongs to Him and He created the people within it.

Those of us whom love God with all of our hearts, minds are souls feel troubled when we hear of someone walking away from God, after spreading the message of Jesus Christ, but we have to remember, God gave everyone a free will.  We can witness to people, but we cannot make them serve the Lord and definitely those whom once preached God's Word like Dr. Fonza must be led by their own spirit to make a decision to return and accept the fact, we did not create ourselves and there is a higher power and His name is Jesus Christ.   Jesus, the Son of God at one time really walked this earth and when He did, there were many whom did not believe in Him and then, after His resurrection, thousands of years later, there are still many whom do not believe in Him and some whom once preached His Word walked away for their own reason.  Why?   Because each and every person has a chance to accept Him.  If not, they are risk takers of what could happen, according to God's Word after they die.  Therefore, Annalise Fonza must allow God to to prove Himself to her, which usually happens when a person is caught in a trap and needs for God to come to their rescue.

In the meantime, we will be praying for this former pastor, Dr. Annalise Fonza, because God loves her and so does the body of Christ.

There appears to be more to the story about Bishop Paul Morton's concern about Full Gospel's name and the man behind the HIV sex drama in his church organization.

In part 1 of Bishop Paul Morton Expresses Concern Over Pastor Craig Lamar Davis HIV Scandal , we provided the tweets about Bishop Paul Morton's concern about this scandal that has now hit his church organization as presiding bishop of Full Gospel Baptist Fellowship.  He stated that his executive assistant's husband had HIV and now she does too.

Bishop Paul Morton Concerned Over Pastor Craig Lamar Davis Scandal (Part 1)

The bishop is very concerned that the Full Gospel Baptist Church name is being drug in the mud over the recent news of Pastor Craig Lamar Davis and his alleged spreading of HIV to church members. Apparently, the woman, Ronita McAfree, who broke the story with her famous letter about Pastor Craig Lamar Davis has slept with Bishop Paul Morton's executive assistant's husband. 

Consequently, Morton's executive assistant now has HIV as well. Bishop Paul Morton also states Pastor Craig Lamar Davis was never a pastor in Full Gospel.

Thanks to our friends at Joy 105 for the heads up. Take a look at the tweets below and what we have to say as well at the end.

Georgia School System Defends Football Coach Mark Mariakis, Regarding Prayers


The football coach at Ridgeland high school, Mark Mariakis is defended by school officials.   We are so very happy to see this man of God refusing to back down while boldly facing the enemies of Jesus Christ in the press.   After he survived a brain tumor a few years ago, Mark Mariakis remembers God's love for him and this is where his strength comes from.   Most people forget how good God has been to them, but Mariakis refuses to stop saying prayers with his football team and taking them to church.  It cannot be understood why anyone would attack him for having prayers with his team and spreading the message of Jesus Christ, but we live in a demonic society and Satan likes to work whenever souls are being won into God's Kingdom.

In the meantime, we will continue to pray for our dear brother in Christ, for God to keep him strong in this evil time.  Satan is just mad, because he could not kill him through sickness, so he's attacking him, along with other strong warriors for Christ whom should have the freedom to speak about God, read His Word and lead souls into His Kingdom.   After all, this is the history of America, the Framers believed God.

Celebrity Hollywood News: Oprah Winfrey Tops Forbes' List Of The Highest Paid Celebrities Regardless of Lost Millions


Oprah Winfrey made it to the top of Forbes' list of the highest paid millionaires in show biz.   Although, she may have lost over 100 million dollars since she launched her OWN network, she is still making a lot of money.  Interim, many celebrities have had their mansions foreclosed, she has not lost one home, if anything she is allegedly selling the condominium in Chicago.   Oprah is not hurting much as we thought, although over 100 million dollars is much less than what she would have kept as a daytime talk show host.

According to Access Hollywood, Oprah claimed she ended her daytime career as a talk show host after 25 years, because she wanted the next level.   However, she really has nothing to complain about while many homeless people are waiting for her and other celebrities to open up a shelter for them.  Oprah brings in about 165 million dollars over other celebrities.

Celebrity News: Donald Trump allegedly raised rent to $100,000 on apartment in his building just to keep out Arianna Huffington


Over the years, we have heard Donald Trump w sometimes offend people, but it is very hard to believe he would be so cruel to purposely raise the rent over $100,000 just to keep Arianna Huffington from living in his apartment building.   We have even seen Donald Trump's harsh criticism on The Apprentice, but this just cannot be true.   There are powerful people in business, but to hate someone so much to keep them from living on their property is not only hard to believe, it's childish.

Allegedly, according to various sources, Donald Trump even called
Arianna
Huffington ugly on his Twitter page.  Since social networks have existed, we cannot believe Donald Trump and other celebrities have time to tweet all the time, but according to DailyMail.co.uk, look at the below snapshot.


Do you you really believe he could get away to do a thing like this to a tenant?  Is he this powerful to keep such a successful woman like Arianna Huffington out of his apartment building by raising the rent?

Celebrity News: Hip-hop manager Chris Lighty dead after shooting himself outside his Bronx apartment


We do not like to deal much with secular music issues, but when it comes to tragic news, we must post our opinion on a spiritual level.  Allegedly, Chris Lighty who was a very successful hip-hop manager shot himself in the head, after an argument with his estranged wife.  Lighty was known to many of the elite music artists, but obviously his personal life and depressed him so much, he did not know how to deal with it.   According to NYDailyNews.com, Lighty shot himself, right outside his Bronx apartment.

Chris Lighty, a music manager to many elite rappers and hip hop artists allegedly was facing millions of dollars in debt with the IRS and his wife filed for a divorce last year.   It may look like celebrities and those whom manage their careers enjoy better lives than ordinary people, but this is not necessarily true.    They have their own troubles in their relationships and even financial problems.  When many of them whom may not know Jesus Christ face their own struggles in life, most likely it can be very difficult for them to cope and they cannot continue to carry such emotional pain, alone.

This news of Chris Lighty is very sad and may he rest in peace.  Our prayers go out to his wife and family.

Why are some women in the black church willing to risk catching AIDS from preachers?


As you know, two days ago, we received the news about Pastor Craig Lamar Davis alleged previous love affairs with his victims.  Two women allegedly came forward, accusing the former pastor of Full Gospel Baptist Church in Atlanta of not informing them of his HIV diagnosis.  We must continue to discuss this issue, because for some reason there are still some black women whom will risk their lives to sleep with preachers of the black church, even if they know they are married.   Is lust that irresistible to these church women not to think about the possible fatal consequences that not only will cost them their lives, but also cause more pain on the wives of these preachers whom maybe also infected with the AIDS virus?  Unfortunately, it seems like the only time we could get a lot of preachers of the black church to talk about AIDS, is after the famous author J. L. King wrote his book, 'On the Down Low', but now since many of them are trying to advance to the celebrity status while gaining more money through tithes and offerings, the issue seems dead.

Unfortunately, it seems as though many black pastors and evangelists are worried about their image as they are yet trying to keep up with the big time preachers.  They are more concerned with keeping their favorable recognition and association with pastors and bishops of mega ministries.  Many of them have avoided any further discussions of black men infecting black women with AIDS, possibly it is because their colleagues could be also infected with HIV and they just do not want anyone to find out.   However, there have been consequences for the discretion of many preachers of the black church whom desire to remain silent on the issue that has been yet killing our black women.   As some of them remain preaching sermons on motivation, the subject of abstaining from sin has been irrelevant.   They live as though there is no God having any authority over their ministries and the sermons they preach while some of them are secretly having sexual rendezvous with men and women.  In the meantime, their wives are suffering while hiding their secret of carrying the AIDS virus, they share with their husbands.   These first wives of preachers within the black church whom could be infected with AIDS often face their husband's followers as though they have a perfect marriage with an air of prestige.   However, when one of their husband's lovers come out and confess their past affairs and possibly being at risk for HIV/AIDS, they do not become activists for black women, instead they remain very silent and obscure. 

The question is, why are some women in the black church willing to risk catching AIDS from some infected preachers, after the fact many other women have died?  To be honest with you, many women within the black church are in love with titles, they want the type of men who has a big title behind his name with a big position.  Although, they my acknowledge some of these men are bi-sexual, it is still enticing to them to have discreet sexual affairs. In many cases, many black women whom were infected and died of AIDS, caught it from preachers in the black church and before their deaths they disrespected other black women for the men whom infected them.   In some cases, we know some of the deceased black women caught it through birth through a blood transfusion in the early days of AIDS, but specifically in some cases within the past 15 years, some black women were full of lust and some married these infected preachers and did not know he had AIDS.  In this case of Rev. Davis, he has a wife and possibly some children and these women who allegedly claim they had affairs with him had no respect for his marriage.  Now, we do not know how Rev. Davis caught HIV, if it was from a man or woman, but either of these black women could be at risk for AIDS and possibly more.   

One question we need to ask is this, since these women are supposedly churchgoing women how did they think God felt about their discreet affairs with Rev. Craig Lamar Davis?  They both were not only ignoring how his wife may have felt about their discreet sexual affairs, but also God.   No doubt, they often were spiritually fed the Word of God through this man.  The fact remains, Davis status cannot cure them, if someday they should catch the disease.  

SCR message to all church women in the black church is this, after you have had you repeated  15 or 20 minutes of fun sessions with a preacher with a title behind his name, do not act as though you are innocent.   You had forewarning after warning when you heard of many of these black men in and out of the church infecting black women with AIDS over the years.  You knew many black women died and you were not willing to wait on God for your own man.   You knew many black women died of AIDS when you continued to go into that bed with that preacher.   Also, you knew God was watching you and whatever you did in that bed with the preacher, whether he was married or not, you knew God did not close his eyes when both of you were naked.  After you accept Christ, you belong to God and He always has his eye on you, beholding the evil and the good.   If you have been sleeping around with these black preachers in the pulpit, repent now woman, thus the Lord, for many black women are yet dying, because of their rebellion and so are the men.  Many of you are seeking lustful pleasures, instead of being righteous and not avoiding fornication and adultery and God says He is not pleased.  Repent, women in the black church before you end up like thousands of other black women whom had lust in their hearts for the preachers, rather than a hunger for righteousness.

Furthermore, many of you women in the black church whom have had affairs with these preachers who have not been tested, we would advise you to do so, immediately.   Just because the pastor, bishop or evangelist you slept with may preach as though he is holy, it does not mean he is not infected with AIDS, you better do the right thing and go to the clinic.  If you are infected, do not put all the blame on him, accept your partial responsibility for not only having unprotected sex, but committing fornication or adultery with him.  Do not ever think what has happened to thousands of black women would never happened to you, just because the man you slept with is a preacher. Realize this is how many women in the black church caught AIDS and died.   You do not know how many other men and/or women he could have had sex with and don't be silly, just because he is married, it does not mean he is the most healthiest person.  Believe us, if he had an affair with you outside of his marriage, there were possibly many more.

UPDATE on August 30. 2012:


We have recently been informed by someone claiming to be a representative of Apostle KC Sparks, that he is making anew of himself. The representative, we will call them K.E., stated that he is making an effort to restore and rectify some of his business and/or personal dealings with others. According to K.E., the apostle is restoring some relationships (we are not sure if they are all business or also personal), and wanted to restore his name from what many people have stated here and on the web about him in a negative light.

77-Year-Old Pastor Accused of Trafficking Oxycodone: No preachers in the black church should be drug dealers


We do not mean any harm, but we could not believe this pastor was a woman, which is why we can understand the scripture found in Deuteronomy 22:5 and cannot understand why certain  preachers of today within the black church and others oppose that specific commandment.  We will deal with that further along in this article, but first, we also are shocked this pastor was caught allegedly selling drugs.  Her name is Gussie Smith, an elderly Florida pastor who has been accused of trafficking Oxycodone.  She's 77 years old and is highly respected by residents who do not believe she has been dealing drugs, although they have seen her mugshot.   We say to them, facts don't lie, but we understand she is innocent until proven guilty.   They may not want to believe it, but obviously God has been watching Pastor Smith all along and she got caught in her mess.

We once heard of a fly by night baptist evangelist dealing drugs out of the pulpit many years ago, we could not understand how any church could respect him or even discern his double life.   It is the same with this 77-year-old pastor, Gussie Smith.  Why do the residents in the neighborhood near her church find it hard to believe?  It does not matter she has been preaching for years there, God always brings a person's dirt out to be revealed, although it is an embarrassment to His Kingdom.

Another question, what sort of people would follow Pastor Gussie Smith?   For this reason, just by looking at her she does not look like a saved woman, she looks like she could have been living a hard life of sin for a very longtime and it seems to be more than drugs.  We are so tired of these celebrity preachers spreading their false philosophies over the true Word of God, claiming we are not supposed to properly represent God by our appearance.   If they would stop preaching these lies, then we would not have pastors like Gussie Smith selling drugs.  There should be some sort of authority examining spirits whom think they have the right to preach.   It does not matter if she has been preaching for years, there should have been someone who knew Smith's double life before police arrested her.  Did people in the neighborhood feel so sorry for her, they would go so far to protect her? 

Can God use anyone?  Of course, He can, but as followers of Christ there are scriptures that instruct us to be holy.  In I Peter 1:16 it says, 'Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. As representatives of Christ, whether we be preachers, gospel artists, ministers of music, bishops or pastors, He expects us to not only act holy, but look like we are a part of His Kingdom.  This is why young people are confused today, because many preachers in the pulpit are not just confusing them with modern age trends, but they are not presenting themselves as Christ told us to do.

This is why we always encourage ministers whom claim to be full gospel preachers to go back to restrictions within the (black) church, because pastors are supposed to be examples to our youth and she does not appear to be an example of a holy woman, inside and out.   You modern age ministers say, 'it does not matter what you look like, it's what's in your heart.'   Can you look at the above photo and say the same thing?  Don't lie and say you can, because you know that's not true.  It does matter how you carry yourself on the outside and as well as being righteous in your soul.  This is why we previously applauded the young Texas teen who stood up against wearing pants on her first day at Burger King, because she was simply obeying this following scripture found in Deuteronomy 22:5, “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.”   There is a reason why that scripture is in God's Word and it is not to be ignored within the black church or any other ministry.

In the meantime, we will be praying for Gussie Smith.  We pray she gets her soul right with God and stop allegedly selling drugs, because at her age, no telling when God is ready for her life to come to an end.  She has to be righteous when she stands before Jesus Christ and His angels.  Therefore, we hope she repents before it is everlasting too late.

Church Scandal Report: Pastor Exposes Fights Against Sexual Abuse

Church Scandal Report: Pastor Exposes Fights Against Sexual Abuse

We were delighted to find this article about a pastor who is sick and tired of sexual abuse on men, women and children. We get a lot of people wanting us to put the brakes on airing the dirt on pedophiles and even pastors in the church who prey on women and children. This time, its not about sexual abuse in the church, but rather a pastor who is determined to 'turn the lights on' on sexual abuse of any kind.

Read below what positive things he's doing to help those victimized from sexual abuse:
Gary Morgan, pastor of Cowboy Church of Ellis County, applauds any effort to "turn the light on" and expose sexual abuse. He recalled how, in one recent month, three adult women stopped him at the end of Sunday morning worship services, asking to talk about issues that stemmed from their abuse as children. One senior adult told him she was certain she was going to hell because of something that began happening to her as a child and continued through her teen years.

Celebrity News: Tamia And Grant Hill Celebrate 13 Years Of Marriage, It's God they both are also still here


This is just wonderful to see, a celebrity couple's marriage lasting 13 years, but we were are also happy to see they both survived two different illnesses that could have took their lives.  Through their struggles of health issues, it was nothing but God they are yet alive.   In regards to their marriage, not even in the church, do we hear of many long-term marriages.   This marriage lasting 13 years reveals that men and women can make it work, but only when the marriage is joined by God and obviously Grant and Tameria were meant for one another.

At Tamia World, we noticed Tamia suffered with Multiple Sclerosis (MS)  and he suffered MRSA in the same year of 2003.   Do you realize they both could have been dead?   However, we were disappointed to not read anything about the goodness of God, after surviving those two illness.  We wonder do either of them believe in God and are they Christians?  If not, they need to realize God is the One they have survived two life threatening illnesses, and it would be wise that they both serve Him and testify of His goodness.  Therefore, it is not just their marriage we celebrate, but also their existence.  If they both are children of God, we would like to know about it, maybe we missed it somewhere on Tamia World website or even Grant's website.

In the meantime, we will be praying for this married couple, Grant and Tamia Hill and hope they remain together many more years. They make a very nice couple.

Pastor Craig Lamar Davis: 7 Things To Consider Before You Sleep With a Married Pastor

We have to give it to our friends over at Hicktown Press. They wrote about the story circulating the web, as we did, on the arrest of Atlanta pastor Craig Lamar Davis and his charges of spreading HIV as reckless behavior to women in and out of the church.

We just posted the story yesterday and found our friends at Hicktown Press and their thoughts on the subject. We have to say we agree 100% with their analysis. Like them, we cover stories about false prophets, pulpit pimps, sexual abuse among pastors and church children, whore-munging men and women of God all of the time. It's so easy to blame the pastor or leader of the church because they should represent the purest in our communities and not the adversary they claim to pray against!
In reality, we have to look at both sides. It takes two to tangle. The old saying is true. If we don't want to be victimized, as adults there are steps we can take to avoid some things. We aren't speaking of young children and the very vulnerable of our society. We are speaking about, in particular, women in the church who will sleep with a man of God... just because??

Celebrity Hollywood News Update: Alleged LL Cool J Burglar Pleads Not Guilty


The man who broke into L. L. Cool J's home, Jonathon Kirby, 56 pleads not guilty and it has been said he is still in the hospital, recovering from his wounds.  If you recall, when the famous rapper and NCIS Los Angeles actor caught the burglar in his home he broke some bones.  In honor of our Savior, Jesus Christ, thank God both men, L. L. Cool J and Kirby are still alive.

>As we have said before, to God be the glory, this man was not able to harm L. L. Cool J. nor his family and it was God who gave him strength to protect his family.  For without God, he would have no strength.   It is such a blessing no harm was done and he was physically fit to hold Kirby down until the police arrived at his estate.

In the meantime, we will be praying for the burglar and for him to eventually accept Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and we pray for L. L. Cool J. and his family as well.

Atlanta Pastor Craig Lamar Davis Arrested for Spreading HIV to Women

Georgia church pastor Pastor Craig Lamar Davis is facing accusations of allegedly spreading HIV among his church members, namely female church members. Reports say at least two members have come forward to press charges.

Pastor Craig Lamar Davis of Full Gospel Baptist Church in Atlanta was arrested for reckless conduct after investigators discovered he was sleeping with several women in the church. Reports state Davis actually admitted to investigators that he’s HIV positive and that he willingly chose to have unprotected sex with these women.

One woman, Ronita McAfee, says she met Davis on Facebook and it wasn’t long before the two started meeting to have sex.

Black Media Scoop states:

A few months after the affair kicked off, Ronita says Davis called and told her that one of his ex-girlfriends called and said she tested positive for HIV. He told Ronita to call her doctor and that if she is positive it is not a death sentence. He also suggested some over the counter drugs she could take so that she would not get infected.

Why Don't we hear Joel Osteen speaking in tongues or even mentioning the Holy Ghost like his late father?


When you hear the late father of Pastor Joel Osteen, John Osteen speak about receiving the Holy Ghost, you will realize we have not been spiritually fed through his son's ministry in the same way.   Pastor John Osteen was a holy man and he was not ashamed about mentioning the importance of receiving the baptism of the Holy Ghost.   It is so scary to hear the late father of Joel Osteen on the first following video talk about how the church world has lost sight of the baptism of the Holy Ghost, signs, wonders and miracles.   Therefore, you will see how Satan is allegedly deceiving through the modern day ministries of Joel Osteen and many other like him today. Thousands of people are being motivated, but it does not seem like they are receiving the same message similar to the late John Osteen and that is, the importance of being filled with the Holy Ghost, the evidence of speaking in tongues.

Now, of course, we do not go to Lakewood Church, but some of the sermons by Joel Osteen we have heard on television does not compare to his father, the late John Osteen.   We sincerely believe John Osteen would roll over in his grave if he knew people were allegedly hearing more sermons about motivation instead of more sermons about the Holy Ghost.  Yes, of course you can be motivated, but absolutely not without the Holy Ghost, who is the keeper and comforter of our souls and without the Holy Ghost, we cannot survive in our Christian walk, plain and simple.  In I Thess. 1:5, 'For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the holy ghost.'  Also in Acts 1:8, it says, 'But you shall receive power, after the Holy Spirit has come upon you: and you shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.'  Furthermore, if you go to our source, you will see, there are over 100 scriptures in the Word of God that speak about the Holy Ghost; therefore, it ought to be mentioned more into today's church very often. 


On this following first video, you will hear the late Pastor John Osteen talk about how much the church changed back then, but he would be very shocked of how much his own church has changed under his son's leadership as pastor of Lakewood church.   You will also hear Pastor John Osteen mention why there were no signs, wonders and miracles and it is even much worst in this era, after his death.   It is such a shame we do not hear similar sermons through his son, speaking about the Holy Ghost or even hear Joel Osteen speaking in unknown tongues on television, maybe we missed it.   If so, we are very sorry.

Celebrity News: Fire Breaks out at Tyler Perry Studios a second time


Although, Tyler's Perry representative allegedly stated this was a small fire, it is quite strange, there has been a fire at his studio for a second time.   It seems as though since Tyler Perry has built his studio and there was some previous trouble there, that's when the fires began, including his writer's car exploding last year.  We wonder what could be the cause of all these fires?

In the meantime, we will keep Tyler Perry, including his staff in our prayers.

 Research Say 'Christians Getting High Off the Megachurch Experience?'

A new University of Washington study has recently made claims that megachurch worship services are like drugs and it creates a spiritual “high,” which keeps people coming back for more and more.
EEW reported:
The study, "'God is like a drug': Explaining Interaction Ritual Chains in American Megachurches," was presented August 19 at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association in Denver. Researchers observed services and conducted 470 interviews and about 16,000 surveys at 12 megachurches for the University of Washington study to gather these findings.
"We see this experience of unalloyed joy over and over again in megachurches. That's why we say it's like a drug,"...

The Rev. Greg Laurie Preached at Harvest Crusade to Thousands

Pastor Greg Laurie's Harvest Crusade attracted thousands of people this past Saturday.  It is obvious, He is chosen for this appointed time.  God is really using Rev. Laurie to reach many people in the 21st century.   Of course, not many ministers of the gospel are calling people into repentance, but it seems as though Rev. Laurie is un-apologetically  allowing God to use him.   

Not many ministers preach of God's agape of love for humanity, but Rev. Greg Laurie informed souls the importance for them to repent, regardless of the sin, according to The Church Report.  It is wonderful to hear a man of God talk about focusing on God and not let negativity get in the way, regarding Christianity.

Thank God for Rev. Laurie's Harvest Crusade and we sincerely hope it spreads across the nation, so lost souls can humbly yield to God's expectations for repentance and full obedience to His Word.  Furthermore, we will continue to keep Rev. Greg Laurie in our prayers.  

Harvest Crusade Packs the House

ANAHEIM -- The Rev. Greg Laurie warned a crowd of 41,000 at Angel Stadium on the first night of the annual Harvest Crusades Saturday night, Aug. 25, to not break God's commandments -- but then told of God's forgiveness for any transgression, no matter how grave.

“Even when we're sinful, God loves us,” Laurie said. “Whatever you've done, God loves you.”

Laurie's sermon was entitled, “How to Find Personal Happiness,” and he talked of celebrities' desperate attempts to find pleasure through...Read full article, here.

Celebrity Preacher, Bishop T. D. Jakes, Internal and External Philosophy in the Black Church: What happened to preaching against sin?


After watching Bishop T. D. Jakes yesterday we learned a lot about having a changed mind.  During his sermon, he mentioned that old church were more about the external and that was teaching the church to look and dress holy.  Respectively, we have videos to prove that is untrue, simply because back in those days many preachers preached more about sin than today.   In our opinion, Bishop Jakes is a very good motivational speaker, getting people to come out of negative habits.  However, after hearing the testimonies of two women who died and went to hell, they both heard Jesus Christ tell them, He desired for today's church to go back to the old church.   Therefore, if it was more about the external, why does Jesus Christ prefer the old time church, more than today's church?

When we listened to the testimonies of Ministers Bernada Fernandez and Angelica Zambrano, they both mentioned Jesus does not like how the church is behaving in so many words and both of those video clips can be found on our videos page.  Therefore, the (black)church years ago was more about righteousness and living holy, which included both the internal and the external.


If you are 35 years or older, you can recall when preachers in the black church and even the white ministers used to preached against sin.   That's another subject Jesus Christ mentioned to Mary K Baxter.  He was angry that preachers were not preaching what He told them to, according His Word.  That testimony can also be heard on our videos page.   It is very scary to hear Bishop Jakes or any other preacher claim that preachers in the old time church used to focus more on the external, because if you will listen to the first Pentecostal preacher on our videos page, Apostle Johnnie Washington, you will find that to be false.   Apostle Washington and various other preachers preached against sin, holy living and also looking holy.   Yes, we are all for changing the mindset, but our souls must be cleansed from iniquity and we must reveal the light of Jesus Christ, after He has cleansed us from all unrighteousness.  We feel it all must be preached, for we are living in an age when little children are changing their sexual identity, something we did not see back in previous years.   We as children knew what we were and we did not question it neither did we request our parents to change our sexual identity.   We are living in a very dangerous age, too dangerous to not to be obedient to Jesus Christ request that we go back to the old way of having church and holy living. 


Of course, we cannot deny we feel motivated every time we listened to Bishop T. D. Jakes, but we cannot deny that he an alleged acquaintance of the president who condones gay marriage, which is against God's Word.   We wonder will we ever hear Bishop Jakes preach on these following scriptures?   Will we hear him admit his stance in the pulpit at The Potter's House or at any other church he preaches at?   Lastly, have souls been set free from homosexuality through the ministry of Bishop T.D. Jakes?  Years ago, the preachers of the black church were not afraid to publicly preach against homosexuality among other sins and they quoted these following scriptures, along with looking and dressing holy.

Note:  In all fairness during his sermon, Bishop Jakes did allegedly say, 'if you're not selling, keep it down.'   

Biblical Scriptures against Homosexuality 

  •  1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God." 
  • Leviticus 18:22 - "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable." 
  • Leviticus 20:13 - "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads." 
  • Romans 1:26-27 - "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion."

Celebrity News: Tameka Foster Speaks Faith on Twitter after Usher wins Primary custody of their two sons


When you read Tameka's tweet below, you will realize she is a strong woman, even after losing her son, Kyle Glover.   We know she must be still grieving over his death and even worse, now that two sons are no longer in her primary care.   Whenever you read the words of a woman who says, 'money can buy many things...But in the end.  Truth and goodness will prevail,' it is certainly God's strength within her to speak faith.

No matter what negative things people are saying about Tameka Foster she yet holds her head up high and is putting her trust and full confidence in God.   No, she may not have the wealth of Usher here on earth, but because God sees her pain, His wealth is much greater from the throne of God and eventually He will intervene on her behalf, regardless of how the majority of people, including the judge are in favor of Usher.   This is a clear sign, God has brought Tameka to this point in her life for a testimony and to help other women whom have been ostracized by others, even from her own race and other women.    Like it was mentioned on The Souls of Black Women blog, God is not looking at how Tameka may have behaved before Kyle's death, He is looking at her future and He uses such women to draw other women whom are judge as the lowest within our society to bring others unto the throne of God.  Therefore, we believe, 'all things work together for the good to them who love the Lord,' as our Word tells us in Romans 8:28.   We know Tameka loves God, because she mentioned Him in a previous tweet.   Therefore, we as true children of God must embrace this woman in love, just like Jesus embraced certain women in biblical times whom were pushed aside because of their personal flaws.   It may look like a closed chapter to all whom idolize Usher, but to all of us whom worship God, Almighty, it is never a closed chapter when a woman such as Tameka Foster has cried out in agony, after losing her son, Kyle Glover.

In the meantime, we will continue to pray for our dear sister, Tameka Foster for God to continue to keep her strong.  Furthermore, we really do pray that Usher comes surrenders to Christ and repent for allegedly wounding her through an alleged previous affair and also taking their two sons from her by proceeding with this previous custody battle, after she lost Kyle.
“A woman’s loyalty is tested when her man has nothing… A mans loyalty is tested when he has everything!” Tameka wrote.
“Don’t fear the enemy that attacks you… Fear the fake friend that hugs you. There’s not much worse.”
“Money can buy many things… But in the end. Truth & goodness will prevail. I must continue to believe this. Stand firm.”

Burger King Fired Pentecostal Teen, Ashanti McShan for not wearing pants: Shouldn't the (Black) Church Return to Obeying Dueteronomy 22:5?


Pentecostal teen of Grand Prairie, Texas was allegedly fired form Burger King, because she refused to show up for work in pants.    Seventeen-year-old Ashanti McShan claims when interviewed by another employee, she was told she would be able to wear a skirt to work.   We think very highly of this teen, simply because many teens in the black church and any other church are not biblically trained and are allowed to dress anyway they please, even in the house of God.   Many preachers are preaching 'it is not what you wear, but it is what's in your heart,' but we have more cases of child molestation and sexual immorality in this era of the church, more than ever.  Evidently, Ashanti McShan goes to a full gospel church that is preaching holiness, according to biblical standard.

In Deuteronomy 22:5 the Bible clearly states, 'The woman shall not wear that which pertains unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are an abomination unto the LORD your God.'   We are living in an age where many teen girls and teen boys are changing their sex, it is ludicrous for today's church to ignore that scripture.   It would be a good idea for a new breed of ministers to rise, so we can return to complete holiness in the the church and teens can be obedient like this young lady, Ashanti Mcshan who was not ashamed to be different in the workplace.   We need strict discipline among our youth and to avoid such false doctrines that try to excuse why there should be no dress code.  This young lady has proven God wants women to be distinct from men in their attire and the same thing goes for the men.  You see, this is why we have so much rebellion in today's church when it comes to the subject of sexuality, because most preachers are not preaching to be holy and dress, according to God's Word. This is the time when the youth within the church need to depart from unsaved youth in the world, some whom are changing their sexual identity and being allowed to cross-dress.  In the age when many youth are questioning their sexual identity, why not return to obeying God's commandment in Deuteronomy 22:5? 

Therefore, Ashanti McShan should win her lawsuit and be given her job back, for she is indeed a child of God and her religious belief should be respected without prejudice.  In the meantime, we are praying for her to remain strong and also pray for God to intervene in her case against Burger King.


Teen Ashanti McShan sues Burger King

By

A Texas teenager is suing Burger King for religious discrimination, saying that the fast food giant fired her, a conservative Christian, for wearing a long skirt, rather than uniform pants, to work.


Ashanti McShan was a 17-year-old high school senior when she applied for a job as a cashier at the Grand Prairie Burger King in August 2010, according to the lawsuit filed on her behalf this week by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. During her interview McShan, who is a Pentacostal Christian, said that her religious beliefs forbid women to wear men's clothing, so she would need to be...Read full article, here.

Pastor Garry L. Tyson Shot in Road Rage Incident: Why are ministers violently attacked in the (black) church?


We are not just referring to the black church, but all ministers of the gospel have been violently attacked all sorts of ways, recently.   If we want God to halt these tragedies, we have to get down to the root of the possible reason why several pastors have been shot in cold blood, either if they were robbed at gunpoint in their homes or even discovered dead in their pulpits, like the case of the late Rev. Carol Daniels in Oklahoma.   We do not know this couple, so we are not insinuating why this pastor, Rev. Garry Daniels was shot for no reason, but spiritually, there is an answer to all of these horrific situations that have occurred over the years.

People were stunned in the previous case that occurred back in 1991, involving the very prominent pastor of Houston, Rev. Paul Jones whom was shot dead in his house.   However, Jones knew the person, a younger man who had stories to tell in court about their discreet alleged acquaintanceship.  In this case with Pastor Tyson, he did not know his shooter.   Therefore, whether a minister knows his shooter or not, there is a spiritual answer as to why he or she could have been violently attacked or brutally murdered.  Of course, we live in an extremely evil world and Satan is out to destroy those whom are spreading the message of Jesus Christ.   If you will recall, lately, several ministers have been spiritually attacked just for holding Bible studies in their homes or even praying with their football teams.   Things have gotten much worse for ministers within the black church or any other church, and it is time to adhere to God's expectancy.  What is the expectancy?  To no longer put up with foolishness in the house of God, which is carnality within the modern day church.   As a man or woman of God, we cannot be afraid to be different and that is, to be holy.   Many well-known ministers are opposing holiness, twisting it as though it is tradition, when in fact, it is absolutely not tradition, it is God's commandment for all true Christians to live righteous in and out of the House of God.  In I Peter 1:16, the Bible says: 'Because it is written, You will be holy; for I am holy.'  There is a spirit that has been trying to destroy ministers of the gospel and as you can see, this pastor did nothing wrong, but walk up to a dark-tinted window when he was shot and almost killed.   Therefore, this shooter was demon possessed and he soul was on an assignment by Satan to take this man's life.   Overall, the entire body of Christ needs to return to revival and constant fasting and prayer.  The hip-hop gospel and christian rock movement in the church is not going to bring the anointing to stop such horrific tragedies from taking the lives of God's preachers in many pulpits today, across America.


Thank God, Pastor Garry Tyson's life was saved and as you will hear on this following video, he admits he could have been laying in a casket, his wife a widow and his children, fatherless.   However, we want the entire body of Christ to take heed that the Devil is on a mission and he has not stopped trying to take the lives of our ministers in the pulpits of many black churches and also pastors of other churches, across this nation.  Like Pastor Tyson said, if he had not of turned, he would have been dead, but it was most definitely God that controlled his body to turn, so he would not take the bullet in another area of his body.   God uses various chilling situations, such as this one to get the entire body of Christ attention.   He wants all churches to yield to His will and to His way and not compromise with the world, such as agreeing with homosexuality and gay marriage.   Pastor Garry Tyson and his wife, First Lady Nicole Tyson probably are very sincere Christians, but God may use innocent people to get the attention of the rest within the (black) church to wake up and start living holy and preaching complete holiness.  Let us assure you, this is not just an issue for the black church to take heed, but there are also other several prominent pastors whom were shot dead through home burglaries and other incidents.   What did the Bible say about always being alert for the enemy?  In I Peter 5:8, it says: 'Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour.'



In the meantime, we will be praying for Pastor Garry Tyson and his family.  We praise God he survived this violent attack and the shooter has been caught by police.   We also pray for the shooter to surrender his soul to Jesus Christ and to repent for what he has done not only to this pastor, but possibly to other victims.

Celebrity News: Usher's ex-wife, Tameka Loses Custody of 2 sons


Yes, it is true that most likely because Usher is a famous celebrity, he allegedly gets sole custody of his two sons.   However, in Atlanta, men are more favored than women and this why it does not surprise us that this female judge ruled in his favor.   Those of us who have been to Atlanta know how women are mistreated in general and often times, other women do not have favor for the woman whom is in emotional distress, because of a no good man, whether it is her husband, brother, boss or even a neighbor who hurts her.  

This is very sad, that Tameka Foster loses two more sons, after permanently losing Kyle Glover.   This is not only sad, but it is really dirty for Usher to have continued this custody battle, after she had to grieve, even worse, she is probably still grieving after Kyle's death.   What type of man would have the guts to take a woman's two sons, after she has lost one to death?   What type of judge would award Usher custody of his two sons, after his ex-wife lost her own son?   This world is very evil and this is why it behooves all of us to fully dedicate our lives to God, for those we marry or even those whom should understand how it feels to be a woman will not even care, even after we have mourned the loss of a child or loved one.

In the meantime, we will be praying for Tameka Foster and her two sons.   We also pray that Usher repents and surrenders his life over to the Lord, because God sees how he has allegedly not considered her pain, after losing Kyle.
