Preach comes to Lifetime…Is it just another clown show?

Lifetime brought us Preacher’s Daughters. An attempt to show us PKs (preachers kids) were just like us or worse, and in June they bring us Preach. Female prophets putting on anther show filled with emotion for the public to view and mock. What’s the reason Lifetime has dived into the pulpit? Cheap show like this make money and cost nothing to make. So you ask WWJD not this.

Church of God in Christ Sends Help to Nepal in Wake of Earthquake

Contact: COGIC-PR, 901-235-2160

MEMPHIS, Tenn., May 4, 2015 / Christian Newswire/ — The Church of God in Christ (COGIC) International Missions President, Bishop Vincent Mathews, Jr. will take a team to Nepal to assist in the hardest hit areas of the recent earthquake.

The media reports that more than 7,000 people have died and more than 11,000 injured after one of the worst natural disasters to hit Nepal. Amid continuing aftershocks, people are sleeping outside and are in desperate need of 500,000 tents.

The Church of God in Christ is sending Bishop Vincent Mathews, Jr. to answer the call for much needed medical supplies, water purification tablets, tents and much more. Bishop Mathews and a Missions delegation will land this week in Kathmandu with a medical doctor to assist in any way they can.

Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr. states, “The Church of God in Christ is sending a team to assist our brothers and sisters in Nepal. Our COGIC congregation and the thousands in the area affected by this disaster are in desperate need of our help.”

Bishop Mathews says, “After seeing the devastation of the 7.8 magnitude earthquake, Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr. felt it vital that we put some boots on the ground to help the people of Nepal in some of the hardest hit areas.” He further states, “We are going to the outlying areas that are closer to the epicenter and tough to reach places to help those with considerable less resources and aide.”

C.E. Blake Ministries, Inc. is making a Ten Thousand Dollar gift to COGIC Charities to assist in the alleviation of this and other tragedies around the world. Bishop Blake says, “I want to challenge COGIC members, leaders and churches to give generously to support this effort.”

Your contribution will be used to provide food, water and medical resources to those impacted by this disaster in Nepal and in other places around the world where poverty and disaster have diminished the level and quality of human life.

Franklin Graham protests University of Maryland cancelling “American Sniper” because Muslim students complained

FRANKLIN GRAHAM’S FACEBOOK POST
Can you believe that the University of Maryland canceled a screening of the movie American Sniper after Muslim students complained? This afternoon, I’m going to meet with wounded military veterans and their spouses who served this nation with honor–fighting to preserve our freedoms and many times shedding their own blood. Chris Kyle was an American hero. It’s brave soldiers like these that make all of the freedoms we enjoy possible. Shame on the University of Maryland for listening to these voices! If these Muslim students can’t support the military members who do their job to protect us, let them leave America and go to a Muslim country. God bless America and our heroes! SHARE this if you agree.

I read the post above and I was struck by the venomous tone. Schools are a melting pot of races and nationalities and schools have to be sensitive to diverse communities. Muslim students complained to officials at the University of Maryland about American Sniper. Graham said if they don’t like it they need to go to a Muslim country. Well if this is where they were born they don’t need to leave their own country. There are movies that some groups applaud and others are offended by that same film and their feelings should be considered and not dismissed, and not told to take a hike.

War Room opens August 28th at a Theater Near You

CULVER CITY, Calif., Feb. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — War Room, the highly-anticipated fifth film from Alex and Stephen Kendrick(Fireproof, Courageous, Facing the Giants, Flywheel) will debut in theaters nationwide on August 28, 2015. Sony Pictures Entertainment’s TriStar Pictures, distributor of Soul Surfer, Courageous and last summer’s faith-based sensation Heaven is For Real, will release the film, which is rated PG, perfectly positioning it to entertain families of all ages.

The family-friendly movie explores the transformational role prayer plays in the lives of the Jordan family.  “We made this film to inspire, challenge and motivate viewers to fight the right kind of battles and to fight them the best way possible,” said Director and Co-Writer Alex Kendrick.

Filled with heart, wit & humor, War Room follows Tony and Elizabeth Jordan, a middle-class couple who seemingly have it all – great jobs, a beautiful daughter, their dream home. But appearances can be deceiving. In reality, the Jordan’s marriage has become a war zone and their daughter is collateral damage. With the help of Miss Clara, an older, wiser woman, Elizabeth discovers she can start fighting for her family instead of against them. Through a newly energized faith, Elizabeth and Tony’s real enemy doesn’t have a prayer.

The film features New York Times best-selling author and Bible teacher Priscilla Shirer in her film debut. The cast also includes director Alex Kendrick (Moms’ Night Out, Courageous), T.C. Stallings (Courageous), and comedian Michael Jr. War Room introduces film newcomers Karen Abercrombie as Miss Clara and Alena Pitts as Danielle, and features a cameo by renowned speaker Beth Moore in her first acting role.

War Room is the ideal addition to our August slate, following in the footsteps of last year’s hit, Heaven is For Real, which had a $12 million budget and grossed more than $100 million,” said Rory Bruer, President, Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures. “We are pleased to be distributing the Kendrick Brothers’ next film, which will be the perfect programming for families seeking a wholesome and inspiring Summer movie.”

War Room is directed by Alex Kendrick and produced by Stephen Kendrick and Gary Wheeler.  Written by Alex & Stephen Kendrick,War Room was filmed in and around Charlotte, N.C.

AFFIRM Films and Provident Films partnered with the Kendricks on the film.

Should Kirk Franklin be blasting Creflo Dollar?

Plenty of people have blasted Creflo Dollar for his scheme to acquire a new jet. Dollar has been mocked by the mainstream and now the church is throwing some punches. Gospel music superstar Kirk Franklin has questioned Dollar’s character but should he? He who is without sin should throw the first stone and it is no secret in gospel circles that Franklin has had to deal with his own demons. So does he have the right to speak against Dollar?

Is Social Media an enemy to the church?

Over the past few days I have been struck by the role social media has played in the church. Sadly, the church rarely gets attention from the media unless something untoward is going on. Last week it was Creflo Dollar’s desire to purchase a $65 million dollar jet. Yesterday someone posted a video of a young lady who is a member of Bishop Charles Ellis’ church. Ellis can currently be seen on The Preachers of Detroit, a reality show on Oxygen. The young lady claimed there was corruption in the church and she had recently been removed from the “armor bearer ministry”. (people who aid the pastor or pastor’s wife). The young lady had been removed from her post. Maybe she tried to meet with the church hierarchy, but she also made her case to the world. So many people saw the tape that the Bishop felt the need to post a response via social media. When did church business become subject to the scrutiny of non-church members? Everyone has an opinion but why? The why is because people feel the need to post everything. From what they eat, drink, wear, go…everything. Social media affirms the greatest of the everyday. Who knows how this situation will be resolved? Stay tuned the former armor bearer is probably posting her rebuttal as I type this post.
