I first saw this story on Twitter. I found the link below. Church cancels the funeral because they objected to one of the images to be shown on a video presentation. The decedant was shown proposing to her wife. The family refused to remove the image so the church said you can’t have the funeral here. Were they right? Well you have to ask why wasn’t the tape reviewed earlier? You also would have to ask What Would Jesus Do? Would he have turned a grieving family out of the temple? The church definitely has a right to their own beliefs but why didn’t they use this as an opportunity to minister? They could have expressed their opposition to the lifestyle without dismissing the family. Share your thoughts.

Andre Crouch died today. His music was the soundtrack of my youth. His song I’ll Be thinking of You was a love song with crossover appeal. His song To God Be the Glory was a perennial favorite at my home church. His song Through it All still stands the test of time and his song Let the Church Say Amen is a favorite in the church. Andre Crouch also wrote the score for The Color Purple. He was multi-talented. He was crossing over when Kirk Franklin was learning to walk. He was a special gift and he will be missed.

I read the linked story today and I am left shaking my head. So many people love and trust their pastor, and more often than not that trust is deserved. When your pastor asks you to have sex with him please note he is not a man of God. He is simply a man looking for a hookup, but if only that was the only problem. Pastor Juan McFarland admitted in the pulpit to multple hookups, misuse of church funds, and he has AIDS. The congregation is reeling and he has been fired, but is that enough? If a pastor misuses church funds shouldn’t there be some legal ramifications? What are the women left to do that slept with him? Why did they sleep with him? This is a sad story. There are no winners but there is a villian and his name is Juan.

The second season of “Preachers Of L.A.” is set to debut this week. Are you a fan of the show?
“I was very purposely silent last season, because four of the five of them I know. I am a pastor, I am a preacher, I am a Christian, I am a man who loves integrity and I was brought up and raised in a great home that taught me that what goes on in the home is not public knowledge. And it’s not good to air out … this depiction of people who we deem to be spiritual leaders and people who are supposed to be credible, and people who are supposed to be the strength in the community. We all have natural lives, every one of us, but there are certain things even in our natural lives that we don’t want our employees to see, we don’t want our friends to see. There are things that we keep hidden until we work them out. We would love the luxury of being absolutely transparent, but it will hurt the people who are looking up to us. Everyone’s entitled to it, but reality TV goes a little too far. And it goes too far especially when it deals with Christianity. With pastors carrying guns to mission work. Then my question is, “Why are you going? I thought you said that you had God? Isn’t God your protection?” And I think it’s more harm than good. Because if you have 1 million people viewing, that gives a bad depiction to 1 million people of the preachers who sacrificed every day and every week for the people. 99% of the preachers are not like that. Flossing their stuff and driving around in their Bentleys and Rolls Royce Phantoms, and living high on the hog. There’s no sin in that, but the Bible said all things are lawful, but it’s not always expedient. The servant lives better than the people he has called to serve. And that gives the wrong depiction
