Black Church News Update: Allegations of a sexual relationship being investigated in death of pastor

Sisters and brothers in Christ, there are alleged claims that Pastor Ronald Harris, Sr. who was gunned down while preaching was having an affair with the deacon's wife. Then, there is an alleged claim that Woodrow Karey (shooter), wife filed a police report, accusing him of rape, which may not be true. Now, it's still very bad Woodrow Karey Jr. did not have respect for God and murdered this man in front of his congregation.  

According to wistv.com, "Mr. Karey stated that he had received some inappropriate text messages from his wife to the pastor," Mancuso said.  What a shame, sometimes this wife could be partially the blame for what happened.  She possible only filed a police report, claiming rape, because she did not want her husband to hurt Pastor Harris.  So said to admit, it's too late.

Saints of God, this is a very sad situation, because allegedly Pastor Harris and Woodrow Karey were good friends.  Aren't those the ones who hurt you the most, sometimes?  However, there is never an excuse for ignoring God's Word that clearly tells us not to kill (Exodus 20:13).

According to ChristianPost.com, on the crusade's last day, Sunday, Laurie shared a message titled, "Home Before Dark," based on his own experience, and reminded the crowd that life is short-lived.

Black Church News: Louisiana pastor shot and killed while preaching

Saints of God, this man, Woodrow Karey walked into a church in St. Charles, Louisiana and shot a pastor dead.  Whatever Pastor Ronald Harris Sr. may have done to offend Karey, there is never an excuse to take his life.  Now, Harris' wife will have to remember her husband preaching his last sermon, then falling to his death.

According to CNN.com, during his arrest, Karey directed the deputies to two guns he had discarded in a wooded area. One of the firearms was a shotgun and the other was a pistol, police said. Police have not said which weapon was used to kill the pastor.

May Pastor Ronald Harris, Sr. or Tabernacle of Praise Worship Center rest in peace.  At least he died preaching God's Word.

Celebrity News: Christian Parents Upset After School Gives Students 3 Days to Study Jay-Z Lyrics

Thank God, there are Christian parents in this era who are taking a stand against Jay-Z lyrics being taught to their kids.   A group of them are very upset that a school in Mississippi insists on their students studying Jay-Z's lyrics.  It's time for us to take dominion over the public school systems in America, because our children should not ever be forced to study lyrics of a secular artist.

According to BlackChristianNews.com, the students spent three days learning about Shawn "Jay Z" Carter and tested on their knowledge of his "resilience."

Let us not leave our children in the hands of the public school system, but many of you Christian parents should be joining the boards of the school districts across America, so God will have more control over what is taught to our children.  You see, we must began using wisdom, because we are powerless if we do not govern all organizations on God's land.

Black Church News: African-American Pastors Launch 'The Front Porch'


These three pastors have created a platform called, 'The Front Porch' to discuss the Bible.  We agree it's time for the black church to get serious how they used to be about the Word of God.  We are living in a very evil age and the modern age of the black church should realize the Word of God is the sword and it is the only way to fight the enemy.

According to ChristianPost.com, leading The Front Porch along with Anyabwile, the senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Grand Cayman (Cayman Islands) and Gospel Coalition blogger, are Louis C. Love Jr., pastor of New Life Fellowship Church in Vernon Hills, Ind., and Anthony J. Carter, lead pastor of East Point Church, in East Point, Ga.

We look forward to this becoming a huge experience for the black church to return to biblical principles.

African-American Pastors Launch 'The Front Porch' to Encourage Biblical Faithfulness in the Black Church

Using the familiar and familial motif of the front porch as a gathering place, three African-American pastors of the Reformed tradition have launched a platform to host conversations about winsome and troublesome aspects of the Black Church in an effort, according to one, to "hold fast to those things that are good, and to do away with those things that are not worthy of our mission."

Bishop Paul Morton preaches about silence in the church against Same Sex Marriage


You really need to watch this video of Bishop Paul Morton Preaching his sermon, 'Rebuilding With the Right Stuff.'   He really tells the (black) church we need to go back to enforcing deliverance ministry without fear or shame.   He even points out we can't even get a coalition of preachers to combat same sex marriage, but the gay community has come together to win more states to win their vote in support for gay marriage.  

Just like Pastor Patrick Wooden allegedly said, when they pass rights for same sex marriage, we are going to hear of more groups fighting to get their right, regardless if it's wrong, which is the same thing Bishop Morton allegedly states on this following video.

Bishop Morton also points out that many pastors forewarn congregants about paying tithes, but they won't denounce same sex marriage.  Many want to be motivational preachers, but do not want to preach what they Bible says.

God really is going to bless Bishop Paul Morton, because he's not afraid to stand up for what's right unlike many preachers within the black church today.

Black Church News: Why Reality TV Will Only Embarrass and Damage Christian Ministry

Washington Post columnist, Rahiel Tesfamariam speaks the truth about reality TV in the church.  We certainly agree that it will shame and damage the christian ministry, overall.  However, it saddens us to realize these ministers who specifically star on 'Preachers in LA' are spiritually blinds and can't see it.  Allegedly, they are more focused on fame and fortune and the damage afterwards could be irrelevant to them.

According to Black Christian News, this new phenomenon of church leaders as the focus of reality television shows is seen by some as a rare, needed look into the guarded lives of pastors. For others, it will further the embarrassment of an already ridiculed church community. My thoughts lean towards the latter: I question what's behind this growing trend and what potential damage it will do to Christian ministry.

In the meantime, let us pray for God to let these preachers who star on this show, Preachers in LA and other reality shows to see the light and to realize they are doing more harm than good.  God wants them to save souls not show off what wealth they possess to the world.  Too many souls are already burning in hell and the eternal flames are waiting for more.

We admire this young lady, LaShonda Matlock. We think all children in her situation should do the same. It's not easy to oust a man of God who has babies with women in the church or those he never intent to marry.

They never acknowledge them and continue to preach the word of God like they have never done a thing wrong in their lives. They leave a tainted image of the church and the man behind the pulpit; let alone a scarred group of children...

South Carolina Church Hit By 16 Bullets was targeted says police, allegedly


Someone shot at this church in South Carolina, Legacy Outreach was shot by 16 bullets.   Saints of God, we are living in an evil age.  Of course, we've heard of church burnings, that's bad enough, which is something we'll never get used to.  However, the Devil creates all sorts of ways to destroy God's house and these people who work for him are very insane and overflowing with evil.

According to ChristianPost.com, Strickland entered the church's sanctuary on Sunday, Sept. 15 and found dust covering the back pews, the ceiling in disrepair and several bullet shells on the floor.

We sincerely pray for people who like to destroy God's house, because in judgement, there will be severe punishment for them.   You may wonder why would anyone do such a thing, but shooting bullets at a church bullet is no different than burning down a church.  Furthermore, enemies who try to attack God's people are demon possessed souls.

In the meantime, we will keep Legacy Outreach in our prayers.

Celebrity News: Christian Broadcaster Craig James fired by Fox Sports for Opposing Gay Marriage

Now it's time for we as saints of God to pray against this demonic warfare that is using people to take jobs us.   The famous christian broadcaster, Craig James has been fired by Fox Sports for opposing gay marriage.  Now, he's accusing them of discrimination, because Fox Sports has violated Freedom of Religion.   

We pray Craig James not only fights this in court, but moves on with his own show.  We suppose why we've heard some celebrity pastors mention we need to take over the television industry in the world.  Now that we've seen what has happened to our brother in Christ, we certainly agree with that fact.

According to ChristianPost.com, a day after his first appearance on air, however, Fox Sports Southwest's general manager Jon Heidtke who had hired him, told James he had been fired. Top officials at Fox Sports, he said, were informed about comments James made about same-sex marriage during his failed bid for a seat in the U.S. Senate in 2012 and were uncomfortable.

Former Pastor Ken Smeltzer Fired for Marrying Gay Couple


We don't know why this former pastor is complaining that he was fired by his church, it's very wrong to marry gays even if it's legal.   The Bible strictly denounces homosexuality and there is no way to exempt that fact.   Furthermore, the Bible also strictly forewarns that we should never add nor subtract from God's Word. 

According to NBCPhiladelphia.com, the county clerk issued 174 same-sex licenses since July before he was court ordered to stop earlier this month by a Commonwealth Court judge who said Hanes didn't have the power to decide whether Pennsylvania's Defense of Marriage Act is constitutional. The law defines marriage as between one man and one woman. Hanes plans a state Supreme Court appeal. 

 There is a worse punishment coming for Rev. Ken Kline Smeltzer, much worse than getting fired by his former congregation. God is not pleased with his gay affirming behavior or any other pastor who is guilty of it.
 
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."

The Georgia native is not the first to take his own life and we are so afraid he won't be the last.  It seems since we've heard about this brain injury among various players, there has been too many fatal incidents, like in the case of Jovan Belcher, for example. 

According to Bleacherreport.com, Oliver was a fourth-round selection for San Diego in the 2007 supplemental draft out of the University of Georgia. He played for the Bolts through 2010 before signing with the New Orleans Saints prior to the 2011 season. Oliver never played a regular-season contest with the Saints, though, as he was released. He eventually re-signed with San Diego.

Joel Osteen's ministry is really doing something wonderful, they have expanded their ministry to reach out to the poor and convicts on the streets.   We know God is pleased with Lakewood Church, because too many mega ministries are not giving back to the communities.  No doubt, this is why we have so many bitter people against the church.

 According to ChristianPost.com, Sandra Harris and Irma Ferriz co-lead the church's volunteer efforts at Feed the Children and coordinate the 20 to 30 members who, in a three-hour shift one time a month, will package 800 to 1,000 boxes that are filled with food, and hygiene and Avon products that will be distributed to families in need.

God is really going to bless Pastor Joel and Gloria Osteen for giving back.

What is this age of the church coming to?   Christian Swingers? This is terrible and we know God is very angry.  There is no such a thing as a swinging Christian!    We cannot believe we are seeing this with our on eyes.   For those of you who try this, you will be in trouble with God, don't even think about it.

According to ABCNews.com, this swinging site for Christians also invites gays and transsexuals.

Associate Pastor Arrested For Alleged Sex Abuse Against more than 20 Women


Pastor Jorge Juan Castro is accused of sexually molesting more than 20 women at a Los Angeles church.  The associate pastor must have thought he had so much power, no one would say a word.  However, these women must have stood together and took courage to make sure police do their job to stop him.  Saints of God, God is very unhappy about too many ministers taking advantage of their congregants. 

According to CBSlocal.com, Castro, who works as an associate pastor and counselor at Las Buenas Nuevas Church in Norwalk, is accused of sexually assaulting more than 20 women, between the ages of 18 and 39, from Oct. 2004 to Sept. 2012, officials said.  

In the meantime, we pray Pastor Jorge Jaun Castro repents and some of you ministers whom maybe guilty of doing the same thing, please realize you can't hide your dirt forever.  God will reveal your hypocrisy, so stop and repent before you bring yourself to shame.
