OK here we go again. How do you go to your congregation asking for $50,000.00 to replace helicopter blades? Pastor IV Hilliard of Mega church New Light Church in Houston, TX did. “Now I don’t even have to wonder if there are members in the church who don’t even have a car. Now Pastor Hilliard lives in a 24, 000 sf plus mansion, so I guess one would assume he would have a helicopter too.…"PASTOR ASKS CONGREGATION FOR $50,000.00 TO REPLACE HELICOPTER BLADES"
The storms of life are no fun, yet they come anyway. For some reason, unless we’re swimming, bathing or showering we don’t want to get wet or rained on. But there is one time when people are accepting of God‘s wondrous water is when the heart is overflowing with love. Walking in the rain with the one you love makes you forget about the storms of life, even if it’s only for a while.…"MAKING PEACE WITH GOD’S RAIN"
When I was surfing the news this morning I ran across Russ Bynum’s, Associated Press article about Paula Deen‘s fans venting their outrage at Food Network, for canning Paula Deen’s cooking show, just because she admitted to using the word “NIGGER.” And of course, the fact that her N-word usage is allegedly a thing of the past is suspect, especially to Black folk. There’s no doubt in my mind using the word “nigger” is common practice…"PAULA DEEN AND THE WORD NIGGER 101"
The bible warns us of times when man will experience a hunger or thirst his world cannot satisfy. These times are indicative of “the Godless factor.” Though man continues professing to know it all in public, in private he’s troubled, even perplexed as to how he will ever arrive at the place in life where he longs to be. That place represents contentedness, satisfaction, and unspeakable joy. Alcohol can’t do it, drugs, women, fortune or…"THE GODLESS FACTOR"

Meet Marissa Alexander The 31-year-old Florida woman who fired a warning shot at her abusive husband, was sentenced Friday morning to 20 years in prison. This is an outrage… Send a prayer up for this Black Girl that Rocks.. ~~BU–Facebook….. And that same “slave plantation minded state” is trying every trick in the book to set Trayvon Martin‘s murderer “George Zimmerman” free.

“In my opinion one of our greatest faults as humans today is; we are too easily impressed.” When we consider the fact that God is a jealous God, there’s no way to honestly suggest that He would be a part of any reality TV show, which ain’t about Him or saving souls. Sorry, once again it’s about the almighty dollar bill. Most of us don’t even want to think about the unwelcome backlash waiting…"PASTORS IN A REALITY TV SHOW? HAVE THEY GONE TOO FAR?"
It’s 5:00 am and I’m wide awake with a message on my mind. I’m reminded of something my sister Phyllis in LA said last week. We were talking about a life changing situation and she said; “Don’t try and put a question mark where God put a period.” So many times we make that mistake, especially when He comes back for those we love. It’s not every day one can boast about having more than one mother figure…"DON’T PUT A QUESTION MARK WHERE GOD PUT A PERIOD"
The thought “what happened in the garden stayed in the garden” came to me one day when I found myself thinking out loud, about how different and fragile so many modern-day relationships are. In essence, there dynamics and make-up are totally opposite of what God wants. I must say though, it took me a long time to truly understand the biblical description for why marriage, and the workings of it’s intimacy should be kept between…"10 REASONS WHY WHAT HAPPENED IN THE GARDEN STAYED IN THE GARDEN"
