Black Church News: No more Prosperity Gospel Celebrity Preachers, watch the film, 'Popped In Oakland'

SCR readers, this documentary was filmed back in 2008, but we have seen some alleged footage that reveals things have not changed there in Oakland.  We realize the problem of street crime within the black community started after the civil rights movement.   We also realize it is a spiritual matter, simply because after African Americans were freed from slavery and got equal rights, after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, it seems some blacks chose to switch places with white supremacists by selling drugs and killing their own kind with no remorse.  Therefore, it is time for the black church to get serious and start revivals, not just in Oakland, California, but all over America.

What is revival?  Merriam Webster: 1. An improvement in the condition or strength of something: "an economic revival". 2. An instance of something becoming popular, active, or important again.
(1) : a period of renewed religious interest (2) : an often highly emotional evangelistic meeting or series of meetings 2 restoration of force, validity, or effect (as to a contract) 

What is a conference? Merriam Webster: a : a meeting of two or more persons for discussing matters of common concern b : a usually formal interchange of views : consultation c : a meeting of members of the two branches of a legislature to adjust differences d : caucus 2 also con·fer·rence : bestowal, conferment 3 a : a representative assembly or administrative organization of a religious denomination

Do you see why the black church needs to return to having revivals, instead of these sophisticated conferences that is not necessarily winning souls for the Lord, but making some celebrity preachers very rich?  There is a complete difference between a revival and a conference.   Back in the 1960's, 70's and 80's, many pastors within the black church were more humble, they had revivals for God to revive people and there was no fee to get in, just offerings, if attendees had it.  The main purpose for running revivals back in those days was for people to be set free from sin, not mainly to win the youth and teach prosperity.

Respectively, if the black church really wants to see the death rates decline among black men and black women, then the sophistication the prosperity gospel must cease. Thousands of souls are going to hell daily, simply because many black preachers have chosen to become more accepted among white preachers and no longer reach out to lost souls within the ghettos of America.   Since the prosperity gospel, there have been more conferences that earns the average celebrity preacher millions of dollars, but now, they have been very ashamed to run revivals that save and deliver souls from demonic strongholds, which has been either labeled as 'traditional' and 'old fashion'.   They would rather rub shoulders with white preachers whom are also enjoying and sharing the wealth they receive from hard working church goers who faithfully give through tithes and offerings, instead of going out witnessing from door to door or even passing out tracts. Some of these celebrity preachers want to allegedly make quick money like drug dealers, but they do not want go out into the dangerous streets and witness to them, for they would rather insist on their church members to do it for them.  What happened to the black preacher who used to go out and witness to lost souls, instead of holding conferences at these big stadiums, allegedly converting them by using the hip hop culture?  With all the millions some of these celebrity preachers are earning, there are still a lot of drugs and a lot of gun violence within the black communities across the country.  Hip hop gospel is not stopping the street wars and single black women are still grieving over losing more than one child.   

This is for every black preacher whom maybe enjoying your fame and fortune, you may enjoy rubbing shoulders with your rich white friends in ministry, but God is looking at you allegedly forgetting about winning lost souls in the ghettos of America. He's keeping record of you showing off in front of your huge congregations, making friends with worldly celebrities while innocent little children are dodging bullets in the streets and sometimes getting shot in their homes.   Your first family, your wives and children maybe safe as they enjoy living in the big mansion you bought for them and even are able to drive down the suburban streets in a Bentley or Mercedes Benz, but God allegedly told Bishop Earthquake Kelley in heaven, He's not pleased with you doing ministry for money.   Furthermore, your wealth won't last forever, God is giving you time to repent for your selfishness and greed.  God is giving you enough time to repent for not witnessing to all of those black men who died because of drugs and all those black women who died because of prostitution.  Instead of going out witnessing to them in love, you chose to mainly welcome the youth who could bring more money in the church with the trend of hip hop gospel and christian rap.  God is not pleased and one day, you will have to give an account in judgement.  When Minister Mary K. Baxter went to hell, she allegedly claims she saw and heard preachers who were forever burning, because they preached for fame and fortune and did not preach what God told them to preach.   If this following video, if this reality of these drug dealers in their caskets, don't open your eyes, we don't know what will.
