Black Jesus is an insult to Christians and Black Folks…who will be watching?


Some things should actually be off limits to mockery, and for me Jesus is one of them. Black Jesus is soon to join the Adult swim lineup. Who would watch this? Share your thoughts. (it is the creation of the guy who brought us the Boondocks).

Why did the word “submit” make Barbara Walters so crazy?

Ephesians 5: 22-25 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. 24 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,Today Candace Cameron Bure was a guest host on The View. She is a Christian woman and she said that she submits to her husband. The word submit seemingly drove Barbara Walters crazy. It is interesting that women like Walters say they support the choices of all women, but when a woman says she submits to her husband she is looked at as less than. Bure attempted to explain what submit meant in her marriage and Sherri Shepard even added her two cent, but Walters could not let it go. She even asked Dr. Phil his opinion about submission, but if a man loves his wife like Christ loved the church there will be no problem with submission. It is funny that the ladies of The View celebrate the union of two women, but berate a woman who makes the choice to submit to her husband. In 2014 some choices are celebrated while others are mocked…is that equality?

Easter Deception? Movie ‘Heaven is for Real’ — Not True — Unbiblical

Contact: Steve Wohlberg, White Horse Media, 559-977-9744, steve@whitehorsemedia.com

MEDIA ADVISORY, April 17, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ — The real-life story behind ‘Heaven is for Real’ seems so encouraging. 4-year-old Colton Burpo, during emergency surgery in 2003, has a near-death experience, exits his body, visits heaven, sees Jesus, angels, and deceased relatives (including a dead sister), and lives to tell about it. His father, Pastor Todd Burpo, turned his family’s drama into a New York Times bestseller in 2008. Widely considered by Christians as an evangelistic opportunity, the film version hit theaters April 16, four days before Easter. “There’s one major problem,” counters Bible expert, television producer, and author of 30+ books, Steve Wohlberg. “Neither the Old or New Testaments teach anywhere that our dead relatives are floating around in heaven waiting to talk to us. Instead, they ‘sleep’ (1 Cor. 15:51)quietly in their graves awaiting ‘the resurrection at the last day’ (John 11:25).” Consider these biblical facts: In John 14:1-3, Jesus plainly informed His followers that they would be with Him when He “comes again.” In 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Paul also encouraged Christians that they would “be with the Lord forever” when He returns to raise the dead. Not only that, but the notion of dialoguing with the deceased is a practice strictly forbidden in Scripture (see Duet. 18:11). It’s called “necromancy,” and is connected to mediums and spiritists. But this happened to a 4-year-old child! you may be thinking. Read Mark 9:14-29. Unfortunately, our enemy aims dark arrows at children too. Steve Wohlberg is the Speaker/Director of White Horse Media (Newport, WA) and the host of His Voice Today radio and television broadcasts. Widely regarded by media as an apocalyptic expert, he has been featured in three History Channel documentaries (Secrets of the Seven Seals; Strange Rituals: Apocalypse; Armageddon Battle Plan), and has spoken by special invitation inside the Pentagon and U.S. Senate. His enlightening books, Solving the Mystery of Death (Remnant Publications), and Demons in Disguise: The Dangers of Talking to the Dead, explore these subjects fully. His website is http://www.HisVoiceToday.com. A committed husband and father of two young children, Mr. Wohlberg welcomes all opportunities to discuss this sensitive issue.

Global United Fellowship Outlines overall Mission

Winston Salem, NC – March 31, 2014 – The first pastors meeting of the Global United Fellowship was held last week at the Embassy Suites in Winston Salem, NC as presiding Bishop Neil C. Ellis passionately outlined the overall mission, specific ministerial touchstones; organizational structure and key appointments of the Fellowship – which in only eight months has remarkably amassed more than 300 churches around the world.
“This is a fellowship, not a denomination” was a major point that Bishop Ellis communicated throughout the meeting, while describing one of the Fellowship’s five prongs: Uniting the Body of Christ. “The Body of Christ is now fragmented,” says Bishop Ellis, “therefore, we are not maximizing all that can be done to build and uphold the kingdom of God here on earth. Global United Fellowship is inclusive of pastors and parent church ministries of any denomination that desires to move forward the spiritual mandates of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” GUF’s illustrious group of Vice Presiding Bishops was announced as follows: Bishop Joby Brady (The Potter’s House of North Dallas); Bishop Sheldon McCarter (Greater Cleveland Avenue Christian Church; Winston Salem, N.C.); Bishop Rudolph McKissick Jr. (Bethel Baptist Institutional Church; Jacksonville, FL), and Bishop Designate Dr. Carolyn Showell (First Apostolic Faith Church; Baltimore, MD). In addition to Bishop Designate Dr. Showell, who will oversee operational structure, three additional GUF Bishopric Candidates were announced: Bishop Designate Dr. John E. Guns (St. Paul Church; Jacksonville, FL) who will assume responsibility for Christian Education; Bishop Designate Dr. William H. Murphy Senior (Greater Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church; Detroit, MI) who will serve as the Father of the Fellowship and Chairman of the Shepherds Care Unit; and Bishop Designate Dr. James R. Woodson II (St. James Home of Fresh Start; Greensboro, NC) who will serve as Executive Secretary. Other key appointments announced during the meeting included Dr. Juanita Bynum (Global Ambassador of Prayer) and Bishop Hezekiah Walker (Bishop Over Music, Worship & The Arts); as well as GUF’s Executive Board & Spiritual Advisors, which include Bishop Rudolph McKissick Senior (Special Assistant to the Presiding Bishop); Bishop Kenneth Ulmer (Apostolic Aide to the Presiding Bishop) and Jackie McCullough (Spiritual Advisor). As the Fellowship begins to shape its leadership, nearly 80 officers were named over the two-day meeting. Further announcements of these officers are forthcoming. “The fact that I waited eight months before announcing the leadership team is indicative of the fact that a lot of prayer and concentration have gone into the selections. I am totally satisfied that we have been able, through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to pull together an initial team that not only has ability but has credibility.” “I believe this team will serve to help get the fellowship off to a strong start as we move towards following the mandate that has been given to us to unite, equip, enhance, resurrect, and build,” says Bishop Ellis. Resurrecting the discipline of prayer in the body of Christ is another prong of the Global United Fellowship. “The 21st Century Church has replaced prayer with praise, and we have to put prayer back in its rightful place of being the bedrock of our relationship with God. Prayer is to prepare for the praise, and the praise is supposed to lead us into God’s presence,” says Bishop Ellis.
To that end, pastors gathered at 8 a.m. Wednesday morning to pray over the City of Winston-Salem. Later, Mayor Allen Joines issued a proclamation naming March 26th as Global United Fellowship Day of Prayer in the city. “My heart is with Global United Fellowship, and I am excited about Global United Fellowship. Winston-Salem is a city that embraces diversity, and churches are the glue that holds this town together. I thank you for honoring us with your presence, and look forward to your return in July,” said Mayor Joines. July 15 – 18, GUF’s first conference – The Gathering – will take place at the Benton Convention Centre in Winston Salem. Speakers will include Dr. Jamal Bryant; Bishop Kenneth Ulmer; Bishop I.V. Hilliard; Dr. Jackie McCullough; Bishop John Francis; Bishop Tudor Bismarck and many others. Details about The Gathering can be found here: GUF’s THE GATHERING. “My hope is that this Fellowship will kill the spirit of class and rank that impedes our growth and arrests our ability to build the kingdom of God in a vibrant, efficient and beneficial way. This is the birth of something fresh in the Body of Christ,” says Bishop Ellis. “I am driven by the revelation that this is a trans-generational move of God and not just another ‘movement’. We are laying the foundation for a Kingdom vehicle through which future generations will literally come into the fullness of Kingdom building.”

Gospel Duo Mary Mary Speaks with JET Magazineon Maintaining Faith Amidst Family Drama

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CHICAGO, Ill. (February 14, 2013) — Mary Mary sisters, Erica and Tina Campbell, grace the cover of JET magazine as they prepare for the debut of the third season of their hit reality series, scheduled to premiere February 27 on WEtv.The two sisters gave JET magazine the exclusive details on what to expect from the series as well as intimate insight on how they managed to undertake some of the toughest trials and tribulations of their lives.“You see our faith shine, but it was not easy at all– and it won’t look easy watching it,” said Erica about the series. “A lot of people will see themselves. There was so much damage and yet still so much work to be done. I learned that every wound doesn’t have to leave a scar that remains for the rest of your life.”
While known for spreading the gospel of encouragement, the Campbell sisters reveal that they are also in need of uplifting as Tina handles her husband’s infidelity, Erica ruptures her vocal cords and both sisters cope with their father’s untimely passing. The relationship with their manager, Mitchell Solarek, also begins to take a tumultuous turn, proving that the sentiment “when it rains it pours” holds true. “I still believe in God and love,” Tina said as she referenced her personal battles. “I will not live in the horrible space of ‘I’m going to fix him’ or ‘I hate men and marriage.’ You do that for a moment and realize it doesn’t undo anything.” Erica, however, goes on the record that her sister will always have her to lean on, no matter what she is going through. “I’ve always been her protector,” said Erica. “We are ride or die for each other. When she hurts, I hurt.” As Tina shares how she’s moving on, she says, “I’ve tried to have all the answers and my life became filled with chaos and anxiety. So now I don’t go overboard thinking I must have things right all the time.” Currently Tina is working on a book of devotionals and Erica’s solo album, Help, is scheduled for release on March 25.Readers can read the article in its entirety and more in the March 10 issue of JET magazine, on newsstands February 17th.
