Christian Florist Who Refused to Make Arrangements for Gay Wedding Request Court to Dismiss Lawsuit

Christian florist, Barronelle Stutzman has been going through this trial for over a year now.  We don't know if you recall, but we've been covering this story since it started.  Stutzman is one of the Christian business owners who has been dealing with this issue of gay marriage when she refuse to service for a gay wedding.  She has been allegedly sued ever since, but now ask judge to dismiss the lawsuit

According to ChristianPost.com, the motion claims the suit was filed "based on an unprecedented interpretation of the Washington Law Against Discrimination…and the Consumer Protection Act." It also says the suit should be dismissed "for lack of primary jurisdiction, failure to exhaust administrative remedies as required by law, and lack of standing."

In the meantime, we will keep Barronelle Stutzman in our prayers.

New Jersey Church Rebuilds 100 Homes for Hurricane Sandy Victims

We do not hear of churches being able to rebuild after a hurricane often, but this church in New Jersey is doing it.  After Hurricane Sandy destroyed many homes, Gateway Church is building 100 homes for the victims.  We pray God blesses more churches to reach out to other victims across the country the same way.  In God's Kingdom, we should have more than enough to help.

According to Sanctified Church Revolution, Gateway Church's Lead Evangelist, Carl Williamson, said that his and his wife Alicia's first response after the storm hit was to consult God about how to assist victims.

God is certainly going to bless this church for being a blessing to these victims.  This is how God wants it, we should have to depend on the government for assistance, we should be the government will billions of dollars to assist people in need.

Celebrity News: Mother of Rapper Nicki Minaj, Evangelist Carol Maraj Gives Women Hope

It's so wonderful to acknowledge Nicki Minaj's mother is a woman of God.  We love to hear it when secular entertainers come from a background of Christianity.  However, Evangelist Carol Maraj gives a testimony about how Minaj's father allegedly tried to kill her.

According to BlackChristianNews.com, in a 2012 interview with The Trinidad Express Newspaper, Carol opened up about Robert's crack addiction, erratic behavior, and the shame she felt over being an abused woman.  "One winter night, in December 1987, he went into a rage, he was demanding money, he was so angry, and I didn't have any money," she said.

Three North Carolina Churches Drop Boy Scouts of America


Three churches in North Carolina have dropped their affiliation with Boy Scouts of America.   Although we should continue to rejoice each and every time a church leaves the Boy Scouts of America, we still should deal with the issue of homosexuality within the church.  You see, many young teens in churches across America are battling with this alleged demon and it's time for revival. 

According to the ChristianPost.com, Calvary Church has hosted the Boy Scouts for 20 years, however, Rev. Jim Pile, pastor of family ministries, recently explained that the church wanted to narrow its programming to something that had a specific spiritual formation angle. He did not specify if the church's decision had been a response to the BCA's policy shift on homosexuality.  

It's certainly a wonderful victory whenever a church drops their affiliation with the Boy Scouts of America.  However, let us run revivals against this demonic issue that has crept into Christian households and the church.

Pastor Gilbert Deya Arrested, Charged with molesting 14-year old girl and raping a church member

Before we get started with our article, we want to tell you, we don't know who would follow any 'so-call' preacher who claims to have power to create babies from mothers without necessary intercourse. Any man or woman who sits and listens to this man needs psychological help.  Obviously, Pastor Gilbert Deya couldn't continue to get away with his mythology, after raping a 14-year-old girl and raping a church member. He's now been arrested and charged with sexual offences.

According to Zimeye.org, Pastor Deya appeared at Camberwell magistrates court on Friday and will duly appear at the inner London crown court for a preliminary hearing on 8 November.

The article went onto allegedly report this pastor allegedly has over 35,000 members in his ministry.   Let us assure you, no wonder the church is so messed up, not just in America, but in other parts of the world.  Pastor Deya or any other person who preaches a false gospel to molest children and women in their congregations should not be in any pulpit preaching God's Word.

Man falsely accused of Disrupting Church Services at First Baptist Church in Alabama and gets arrested

Now, we are not quite sure of all the details of this young man who was arrested in a church parking lot in Alabama.  However, police allegedly accused this young men of disrupting church services, but First Baptist Church allegedly released a statement saying they never asked the young men to leave. Is there anyway to fight racial profiling or police brutality in the 21st century? 

According to al.com, Joshua Chukwuedozie Ude, 23, was arrested in the parking lot of the church, located at 600 Governors Drive, after Huntsville police said he was questioned about disruptive behavior during a service inside. Police said he became uncooperative and refused to leave.  
  
In our introduction, we asked you brothers and sisters is there anyway to fight racism or police brutality in the 21st century?  Our answer is very simple, this is an ancient demon that cannot be fought like back in the days of Dr. Martin Luther King.  Why?  First and foremost, we are in a spiritual battle and this ancient demon of racism has been stubborn for too long.   God is calling on the black race, including the black church to fully submit and surrender to him.  It is going to take revivals to run across the country and preachers are to stress the importance of salvation and complete holiness.  That's the only way we are going to handle any problems in this country.  

In the meantime we will keep this young man Joshua Chukwuedozie Ude and his brother (as it says on the following video) in our prayers.

Did you know Bishop Eric McDaniel Could sing good gospel songs?



After listening to Co-pastor Subrenia preach a sermon that blessed us, we wanted to see what was her husband up to lately.  If you recall the McDaniel's previously took over Bishop Joby and Dr. Sheryl Brady's church in Durham, North Carolina until there was an alleged accusation against the man of God, Bishop Eric McDaniel.  After that situation, the McDaniel's never stopped preaching God's Word and continued on with their own church.

We just happened to find this video on You Tube of Bishop Eric McDaniel singing like they used to, in the black church.   You cannot even find black preachers singing the way he is singing on this following video, because they have been so focused on fame and fortune, they are no longer blessed to sing with with the anointing.  Furthermore, most black preachers have gotten so sophisticated they would be ashamed to allow God to use them, the way we see Bishop Eric McDaniel singing with the anointing.  Also, we just remembered, Bishop Eric McDaniel is a gospel artist, but he's not like the average one.

Bishop TD Jakes says There Are More People in Theaters on Friday Than in Pews on Sunday



Bishop T. D. Jakes gives an important reason for using the media to preach God's Word.  Allegedly, he says more people are in the theaters on Friday than in the pews on Sundays.  We can agree with him, although it's been that way for a longtime.  Christian television has been around for many years, since the late 60's and early 70's.  If people love God enough, they will seek him.

 According to BlackChristianNews.com, Jakes says, "The great commission calls Christians to go into the world and spread the Good News, we can use television, we can use books, but there are more people in the theaters on Friday nights than the pews on Sunday morning." 

Yes, it's very important for us to use the media to preach God's Word, but it is also very important that Americans and people in foreign countries continue to attend church every Sunday and through the week.

SCR Take on 'Preachers of LA: Tea and Sympathy'


First and foremost, we want to express how displeased we are of Bishop Noel Jones relationship with his lady friend, Loretta.  How can you be a man of God, preaching His Word to lost souls and your lost yourself?  Now, we have heard hearsay of Bishop Noel Jones alleged affairs with different women, but we never thought we would actually see it on this show, 'Preachers of LA.'

Bishop Noel Jones nonchalance about Loretta showing up at the tea party as his lady friend is a clear sign God's church needs to return to complete holiness.  Again, as we always say, it is not tradition to be holy, it is God's way.   God is sick and tired of men and women preaching his word with all the filth and carnality in their own lives.  Just what do you have to say to a sinner, if you are allegedly sinning yourself.   If you are fornicating, how can you preach to the fornicator?  If you are fornicating, how can you preach to the murderer?   Sin is sin and any preacher who has a girlfriend or boyfriend on the side has no business in the pulpit.


As for Deitrick Haddon's fiance who is now his wife, Dominique should have never been invited, because she is with a man who is allegedly too carnal and the both of them know nothing about being holy.   This tea party should have been strictly for holy women, married to holy men.  There is a woman who was the first wife to Pastor Haddon and she, Damita who should not be ever forgotten about.  She was the woman who stood by him to fight same sex marriage, let's not forget.  So, if they fought something so unethical together, there's no reason why they should not have remained together.  First ladies of the church should not carry on as though the first wife does not exist.  There should be prayer for reconciliation, but if not, the new woman should never be invited any tea party for first ladies if she did not meet her man in the guidelines, strictly according to God's Word. Furthermore, there were alleged nude photos of Deitrick Haddon surfacing the internet, so this is an unholy couple and not an example of how a pastor and first lady should be for today's church.  Therefore, Dominique should never be accepted in the circle of first ladies, especially if they are living strictly according to God's Word as holy women.

Christian Woman Offered to Pay Groceries for Man who stole her wallet


Jessica Eaves approached a man who stole her wallet while shopping in the store and requested he return her wallet.  She even offered to buy his groceries for him.  This is an amazing story. Most women would scream and cry for help, but Jessica's courage caused her to remain very calm and polite.  Where did that courage come from?  Most definitely, God. 

According to ChristianPost.com, Jessica Eaves, who is also the leader of the Christian outreach team at First Christian Church in Guthrie, reportedly walked up to the man she suspected of taking her wallet and demanded it back with an ultimatum that made it impossible to refuse.

Former Homeless Man Now Pastor Sleeps in Dumpster to Help the Poor

Although Pastor Langdon Cassidy is no longer homeless, he is showing the love of Jesus Christ, by returning to the dumpsters.   He's sending a strong message by allowing people to see him as a homeless man to help people whom are yet homeless.  Tell us, how many pastors will make a stand like Pastor Cassidy, unashamedly?
According to ChristianPost.com , Pastor Langdon Cassidy of the Matthew 25:35-40 Ministry, a ministry solely focused on helping the homeless in Houston and its surrounding communities, took on the challenge to "walk in a homeless persons shoes" after having a series of dreams about it. In his recurring dreams, he constantly found himself inside of a dumpster while trying to grab onto everything that people would hand to him.
In the meantime, we will continue to pray for Pastor Langdon Cassidy, but we want to stress to the rest of you ministers of the gospel.  If you used to be homeless, don't forget where you came from, because God calling for men and women to help the poor and if you have a testimony, you can help a lot of people come out of poverty.  Of course, it's wonderful to always hear pastors testify about being on drugs, on alcohol and once being pimps. but we don't hear as many admitting to being poor.

2,500 Christian Leaders Rally Against Gay Marriage in Chicago: Would Dr. MLK Join Them if he was alive?


We are living in a very sad age.  Who would have thought equality would mean to go against God's Word in America?   When Dr. Martin Luther King was living, we wonder who's side would he be on?  If he was a holy man, he probably would be marching with these 2,500 christian leaders in Chicago who oppose gay marriage, even after he fought for equality for African Americans.

According to BlackChristianNews.com, as many as 2,500 people, waving signs like "Marriage is Sacred" and "Marriage One Man One Woman," crowded into the Statehouse to keep the heat on the Illinois House and to block passage of the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act, which has been stalled since the spring.

(Black) Christians are in a difficult challenge today and we wonder if Dr. King would join this rally against gay marriage, if he was alive today?   What did equality really mean to Dr. Martin Luther King, did mean going against God's Word to please homosexuals?  If we were to go back in time and ask him, he probably would think we're insane.

Calif. Pastor Arrested in Iran After Shouting in Front of Saeed Abedini's Prison

 

This man of God was arrested in Iran for shouting in front of a prison, 'Let my people go!'  Pastor Eddie Romero is very courageous, a type of spirit we don't see much among clergy members today.  God had to tell him to do it and we know he will be blessed for it.  Wow!  What would this country be like, if we had more pastors like him? 

According to ChristianPost.com, Eddie Romero of Exodus8one, a faith group with a mission to "engage belligerent governments/societies (with respect to faith) directly in order to address the injustice towards Christians and other religious minorities," was arrested on Monday in Tehran in front of the prison. He had been shouting "let my people go" in the Farsi language, and demanded the freedom of four Christian converts and a human rights advocate being kept there, including Pastor Saeed Abedini.  

In the meantime, we will keep Pastor Romero in our prayers.  God bless him for his obedience and courage.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 10.08.13 PM

Well, we can't be surprised that something like this would happen. There are so many emotions still flying over the George Zimmerman trial and verdict that even though this seem extreme, there are people who agree his actions were just the same the day Trayvon Martin died. NOTE: We don't agree with the violence in the episode and how South Park always uses racial undertones on a regular basis.

Hollywood News: Stephen Baldwin Starring in New Christian Film


Hollywood actor, Stephen Baldwin who is a born again Christian has been going through a trial.  Allegedly, the movie star says because he is a born again Christian he has not got any major roles in Hollywood for over a decade.  However, now he's back, starring in a Christian film.  We suppose this is what God wants anyway, Christians to take over the movie industry, even in Hollywood. 

According to ChristianPost.com, Baldwin came closer to Christ and became a born-again Christian after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Since that time he has been a strong supporter and advocate of his faith going to conventions all over the country while spreading the word of Jesus Christ.  

In the meantime, we will keep Stephen Baldwin in our prayers, we can't wait to see the christian film.

Celebrity News: Ex-NFL Player and Pastor Irving Fryar Indicted In $690,000 Mortgage Scam

Many of you football fans probably remember this famous football celebrity, Irving Fryer.  Pastor Irving Fryer, an ex-player for the NFL has been indicted in a mortgage scam.  We pray God brings him out of this, whether he's guilty or not.  It's such a shame so many pastors are getting caught up in these mortgage scams.  
 
What's so bad is his mother, Allene McGhee is also indicted with Pastor Fryer.  

According to Black Christian News, Fryar of Springfield, N.J., is pastor of a church he founded and the head coach of the Robbinsville High School football team. His 72-year-old mother lives in Willingboro. The former wide receiver played for four NFL teams between 1984 and 2000, including the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles.  

It would have probably been better if Pastor Irving Fryar started a football team, whether than to get caught up allegedly scamming people.  However, we will keep him and his mother in our prayers.

Pastor Chuck Cooper's Megachurch Membership Shrink from Over 5,000 to 650



Pastor Chuck Cooper's church in Orlando, Florida is yet beautiful, but church attendance has decreased from the thousands to mid hundreds.  In this age of a recession, people may suddenly think that's the reason, but not necessarily.   It could be because of how the church is being operated these days, people just want a carnal church service or people are just not hungry for God as they use to be.

According to BlackChristianNews.com, one of Orlando's first megachurches, Calvary has seen its congregation shrink from more than 5,000 to 650 about the size it was when Cooper joined in 1970.

In the meantime, we will keep Calvary Assembly and its' pastor in our prayers.

Pastor Ron Carpenter Addresses His Confession of Wife's Adultery


After Pastor Ron Carpenter honestly admitted to his wife's alleged cheating, he now is addressing his statement before a group of pastors at his church.  It takes a strong man of God to make sure everyone understands what he is going through and God bless the pastors who are supporting him. 

According to ChristianPost.com, Carpenter, the pastor of Redemption World Outreach Center in Greenville, S.C., told the congregation."A lot of people talk about getting to a place where Jesus is all you got, but I think very few have probably been there… But you learn something in those times that you can't learn in any other place." 

In the meantime, we will keep Pastor Ron Carpenter and his wife, Hope in our prayers.

Black Church News: Pastor Pulls Gun on Robbery Suspect


This pastor thinks he was doing a good deed by holding up a robbery suspect at the Dollar General store, but we don't think God sees it that way.   Pastor Sanders allegedly says he saw the gunman demanding an employee to get on the ground and then suddenly, the gunman turned toward him with his gun.  That's when Pastor Sanders says he thought he'd teach him a lesson.   Wow, what type of day are we living in, pastors owning guns?
 

You see, there's so much carnality in the church, most pastors don't have any power, so many of them are now carrying guns, very sad.  

The fact that Pastor Sanders said he told the gunman he was doing it out of love does not show the love of Jesus Christ, at all.
