Ed Young and Family to Star in Reality Show


Of course, it does not surprise us that Ed Young and his family will be having their own reality show.  Too many Christian have become followers and when they see others becoming popular, then they want to do it.  It's sort of like hip hop gospel, Christian rock, gay marriage and the prosperity gospel, whatever the majority does, do not be surprise who follows.  Too many grown people are like little kids, although it should be different in the body of Christ. 

Too many Christians are puppets and make hasty decisions to be popular, not to please God.  While more of these pastors, first ladies and gospel artists are becoming stars of their own reality shows, too many souls are dying lost.

According to ChristianPost.com, Young revealed that although his family has been "approached repeatedly over the years to do a show," this was the first time they have felt at ease about moving forward, thanks to the unnamed Los Angeles producer who has so far pitched the idea to A&E Television.  

In the meantime, we will give you more updates on Ed Young's new reality show series, if we receive it.  God bless.

Hollywood News: Alec Baldwin blasts MSNBC for ending his show but keeping Bashir's



Of course,  some people in the television business may mistreat Alec Baldwin, just like his brother who is a Christian.  Why?  Simply, because the Baldwin brothers seem to speak their mind.  Now, Alec Baldwin is right, it is so unfair for MSNBC to end his show, even after he apologized but keep Bashir's who also previously offended some viewers.

According to CNN.com, earlier this month, Bashir apologized for suggesting that Palin deserved graphic punishment for comparing the U.S. federal debt to China to slavery. Palin later canceled an interview with NBC's "Today" show. 

In the meantime, we pray MSNBC is forgiving and allows Alec Baldwin to have his show back, in all fairness.

Texas' Attorney General Greg Abbott Vows to Defend Gay Marriage Ban


Although, two gay couples are allegedly filing a lawsuit, Texas Attorney General vows he will defend the ban against gay marriage.  Saints of God, every time we get a strong man or woman of God in any career who speaks out against gay marriage, we ought to praise God for it.  We are living an an era when many pastors are afraid to oppose gay marriage, regardless of scriptures against homosexuality.  Therefore, there are very few like Abbott who publicly denounce gay marriage. 

According to ChristianPost.com, the two couples, Cleopatra De Leon and Nicole Dimetman of Austin and Victor Holmes and Mark Phariss of Plano, are seeking an injunction to halt the state law banning same-sex marriage.   

This is how each of you who claim to love God should be, no matter how many lawsuits, you will make a vow to stand up for what's right.  In the meantime, we will keep Attorney General Greg Abbott in our prayers.

Former Stripper Shares Christian Faith to Exotic Dancers

Jaime Hindman, a former stripper is reaching out to those who are still in the adult industry.  She doesn't hide what she used to do, in order to win souls for Jesus Christ, which is what God wants for every ex-homosexual, ex-drug dealer or any other former sinner.  God wants us to share how He brought us out of sin to win those who are still lost in sin.   

Let us also remind you, that they are still some ignorant Christians who think that if you share your past mistakes with other people, then you are not forgetting about your past.  They don't even realize that they are being used by the Devil to shut the mouths up of Christians who should be telling how God brought them out to help save other people from darkness.  Testimonies are a must in order to bring lost souls out of Satan's captivity.

Pastor arrested for alleged child molestation


Saints of God, this pastor has been accused of child molestation.  It's so sad when many of these pastors who are charged with such allegations could be winning souls for Christ.  However, they must spend time on trial for sexually violating children.  We're living in a terrible age, we must continue to pray and speak out against this demonic cycle in this church.

It's terrible some hoodlums would have the audacity to steal from a church, but to take food for the needy is just cold-blooded and dirty.   They may get a chance to eat, but they will be in trouble with God if they don't repent.   In the case of an Apostolic church in Sacramento, some thieves stole Thanksgiving food for the needy.

Atheist Group Sues High School about Prayer


Here we go again saints of God, another atheist group trying to stop prayer in the school.  Now, many of you Christian Historians know this is a curse on our nation since the late 60's when Madalyn Murray O'Hair started the battle.  Although, O'Hair was murdered after her satanic plan to destroy prayer in American schools, we Christians are still in this demonic warfare. 

According to ChristianPost.com, the prayer was reportedly held by one of the high school's math teachers, Gwen Pope, at the start of every day after the school buses arrived at the school but before classes began, around 7:30 a.m. The prayer was reportedly announced by Principal Darren Rapert over the intercom to invite students to attend, and Pope also reportedly invited students during the prayer to remember their sick classmates and participated in saying "amen" with the students at the end of the prayer. 

Let us not just fast and pray, but let us Christians be smart and encourage more sisters and brothers in Christ to become politicians so we can take over America.  Then, these atheists will be powerless.

It's mighty wonderful Bishop T. D. Jakes attracted thousands to his "Fire on Fridays" event, but it cannot be understood why hundreds were turned away.  Usually Bishop Jakes provides a huge facility so many people can hear him preach, but this time at Saint Paul's Baptist Church obviously there was not enough room for all attendees.

Raynard Jackson Tells 'Preachers of LA', Reality Show is An Embarassment


Pastor Raynard Jackson allegedly says 'Preachers of LA' is an embarrassment to the church.  However, we question why he's speaking out?  Because of what the church has done so far with all the hip hop and rock within the gospel music industry and the prosperity gospel has already been an embarrassment.  So, why is Pastor Raynard so angry?  Why are pastors like Jackson just now speaking out against something that is so unholy within the body of Christ?  They should have been speaking out against everything else that should have caused an embarrassment.  The (black) church has been extremely worldly for the past 25 years.

'No Makeup November' Launched by Young Women's Ministry; Just Beautiful, Back to Pure Holiness

 

There is a movement that has just started and it's called, 'No Makeup November.'  Rave ministries, which is a women's ministry started and we think it wonderful, because God wants holy women to reveal who He naturally created, already very beautiful without makeup.  You see, the trend of church women wearing make-up began in the late 1970's when they began to believe they needed to enhance their beauty, then everything else changed for the worse.  
Back in the late 70's and early 1980's, skirts began inching up the thighs and shirts began revealing too much bosom, many women began acting butch and looking like it and worldly music began wiping away sacred music.  One thing after another began to bring in the false opinion that to be holy is tradition.  So, God is using this young women's ministry, Rave. 

According to ChristianPost.com, girls as young as high school-aged students to middle-aged women are taking the vow to live life temporarily makeup free. Apparently, the challenge for some young women has been that while participating in No Makeup November they have had to shift focus on their personality when engaging with others.  

In the meantime, we encourage all of you women who claim to be holy to start looking like it, you really don't have to look like the world to win the world. You can make a wise decision to dress how you are on the inside, so people can see the light of Jesus Christ.  This whole false notion that it doesn't matter what you look like on the outside has wiped away the purity of Godly women and we need to go back to being how God wants us to be and ignore the carnal preachers who preach otherwise.  Join this new movement, 'No Makeup November' and do not accept it as a trend, but the originality of holy women, how we should remain as sisters in Christ.

Virginia Christian College may allow Faculty Members to Be in Gay Relationships


A Christian College in Virginia is contemplating on allowing their faculty members to be in gay relationships.  Saints of God, we do not comprehend why after so many years of teaching the truth, they would do this, because this could make God very angry with them.  Furthermore, when churches and Christian schools make such decisions, they must make a decision to exclude these following scriptures when teaching the Word of God and this makes them hell-bound.

According to ChristianPost.com, a member of the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities, during the hiring process, EMU currently requires tenure-line faculty candidates to notify the school of any objections they have with Confessions of Faith in a Mennonite Perspective, which includes a paragraph on marriage and sexuality.  

With all the fatal tragedies that's been happening on christian campuses, it pays to be right with God and stay right.  Therefore, we fear for the future of this Christian college campus,  Eastern Mennonite University. 

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."

Florida Pastor says 'Armor Bearer Is Not a Biblical Church Office,' in Viral Post; SCR take on Deitrick Haddon's vs. Bishop McClendon


Do you recall the episode on 'Preachers of LA' when Deitrick Haddon allegedly corrected Bishop Clarence McClendon?  Haddon pointed out that armour bearers (McClendon's entourage) are not needed in ministry and he was right.  Now, just read about this prominent Florida pastor, H.B. Charles Jr. who points out armor bearer is not biblical. 

According to ChristPost.com, some Biblical passages referenced in laying out the role of an armor bearer, usually the person tasked with carrying weapons for a commander, include Judges 9:54, 1 Samuel 16:12, 2 Samuel 18:15, among other verses. But these Old Testament passages, says Charles, have no bearing on New Testament church administration.  

We are so very glad Pastor Charles pointed this out, because too many pastors think they need armor bearers and if it's not biblical, they should get rid of them.  It's time they learn to let God and His angels be their armor bearer.

His post, having attracted nearly 8,000 Facebook "likes," challenges the concept of such a position that is usually tailored to assist pastors and that can involve tasks like serving as a personal bodyguard or carrying a preacher's Bible.

Allegedly, Rob Bell's 'Love Wins' Nudged 1,000 People to Leave Mars Hill Bible Church


Rob Bell is allegedly accused of taking a thousand people with me from Mars Hill Bible Church.  However, we feel people are not property and there is no such of thing as a pastor stealing members.  People can make up there mind where they want to be, they are not church property, meaning they are not slaves.

Like in the alleged case with Paula White before she took over Zachary Tims church, she allegedly accused a pastor in the Tampa area of taking some of her members, which is false.  No pastor has the right to accuse another pastor of doing such a thing, people are not property and their tithes and offerings belong to God.  Read it for yourself here, if you never knew about White's previous lawsuit.

Bishop Harry Jackson Says NAACP Lost Its Christian Roots


Bishop Harry Jackson allegedly says the NAACP lost its Christian roots, but we never thought the organization had any.  Of course, we acknowledge the history of the NAACP fighting for equality, but never based on Christianity.  If so, the NAACP has not only lost its Christian roots, but also, caring for the rights of African Americans, allegedly. 

Really, we do not comprehend Bishop Jackson seeing the NAACP holding onto black roots in this era, because the organization seems not to consider most problems African Americans face today, in our opinion.  So, if they cannot be honest about the problems with racial discrimination in many situations, then how can they profess Christianity? 

According to ChristianPost.com, citing Job 14:7-9, Jackson declared that "there is hope for a tree if it be cut down that it will sprout again." Hearkening back to the early days of the NAACP, he mentioned that the group was founded with a majority of white and Jewish people and only a handful of blacks. Nevertheless, the group was "birthed out of the heart of racial reconciliation," with a "spirit of Elijah."  

After all these years, we don't think the NAACP will be the same, ever.

United Methodist Pastor Who Officiated Gay Wedding Found Guilty

This is another victory for Jesus Christ, Rev. Frank Schaefer was found guilty for violating the rules of his church.  He was not suppose to marry a gay couple, even if it is is son.   Furthermore, Schaefer did not only violate his leadership as the pastor, but most importantly, the Word of God. 

According to ChristianPost.com, in 2006, Schaefer's eldest son, who had come out to his parents about being gay while a teenager, became engaged to a man and asked his father to perform the ceremony. 

 It does not matter if his son is happy being gay, God is not happy with it according to these following scriptures.  Therefore, it was very wrong for Frank Schaefer to officiate his son's wedding.
 
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."

Florida Pastors Concerned About Scientology Presence in Their City

We must say, it's about time the ministers complain about Scientology being present in their city. However, we feel God expects pastors to be very upset all over America, not just in Florida.  We should be just as upset about Scientology springing up all over the country, just like same-sex marriage.

According to ChristianPost.com, Rudolph also told CP that it is "discouraging to drive through downtown Clearwater every day and see the hundreds of people all dressed in their uniform, serving a false God."

 It's time for Christians to oppose Scientology, because it's not just certain types of sexuality that has ruined the American family, but also some alleged cults.
