Maya Angelou, Oprah, And Many Ways To God

My thanks to Terrance Barlow, my brother in The Lord and fellow abortion abolitionist, for posting the YouTube presentation of Maya Angelou and Oprah on FB.

Jesus said,“I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man comes to the Father but by Me.”

Peter said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Peter said, “Neither is salvation in any other. For there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.”

Paul said “One Lord, One faith, One baptism, One God, and Father of all. Who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”

Paul said, “If any man has not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His.”

In this video is the proof of the fact that when you hear what people are saying, it’s because it is abundant in a person’s heart.

That’s because Jesus said “For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.”
When there is no Bible verse or verses to support what you are saying, it is clear that you do not have the knowledge of Christ in your heart. You see, you can talk like you know Him, but when you know Him, you are not ashamed to say His name.

And when you know what He said, you will never say things like….“There are many roads to God.”

In the video, you will see Oprah give Maya a leading statement to ensure that she gives the answer that pleases Oprah.

Then you will probably say, “You can’t say that a person is in hell based on a video.”

One thing about this video. It is evidence of a Bible-less person. Show us where in the video she used one verse of Scripture to refute or support what she said. Just one time where Maya said, “For the Bible said…..”

You see, it is not about how eloquent you speak. It is about having an intimate relationship with God, through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. And evidence of that relationship is in knowing what the Bible said. Show us in one part of this video where she mentions the name of “Jesus.”

There is none, and you know it.

Some will say, “Just because she didn’t say Jesus, it doesn’t mean she don’t know Him.”

Paul said, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ. For it is the power of God unto salvation…”

Jesus said, But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.”

Take note how it is done. There are plenty of Bible verses to support what I said here. When detractors comment, you will not see one Bible verse to support their error. And if you do see a Bible verse, it is partially quoted. Misquoted. Or out of context quoted.

You see, with Oprah and Maya, it’s never about satisfying God’s requirement. It’s about circumventing what the Bible said.

That’s why you will always have people that will distract and detract from the Bible to praise the poet and ignore what God said as a requirement for salvation. Because Jesus said “I am the Way….,” who are we to say that there are many other ways? Who are we to intentionally and deliberately tell God that His ONLY WAY is invalid? 

That’s why we must never allow the emotion of the moment to persuade us from the truth of God’s Word.

Some will say……“There he goes again. Pushing people into hell because Maya said some things.”

What she said, surely wasn’t the Word of God. What Oprah said clearly isn’t the Word of God.

Have enough sense to get your Bible and investigate instead of protecting error.

Some people refuse to see the truck with headlights that is right on top of them.

Sadly, a sign sits at the top of the cliff. “The Way Down.” As the people line up to board the bus to go down, on the bottom of the cliff is several bus loads of people. Killed because they never got off the bus before it headed down. Yet, people get on the next bus to go the same way, to die the same way.

For once, get off the buss and save the trouble of the coroner zipping you up because you didn’t want to get off the bus.

That’s just the way people in blind error operate.

Yes, she could have repented at the last moment, and we pray that she did. However, when you see stuff like this video, it’s quite possible that she might be lost in hell. Very difficult to ignore that possibility. A grave tragedy is that people will honor the dead outside of Christ more than they would honor the true and living God and His holy Word.

What God requires transcends anyone’s honor when they die. We must have more respect for God and His Word than for people that may or may not have made Jesus Lord. Learn to honor God above people. Love the Lord you God with “ALL your heart, soul, mind, and strength.”

If you cannot love the Lord more than a dead poet, then you honor the dead more than God.

There aren’t many roads to God.

There is only one Way to God. Jesus. When you do not hear them speak of Jesus, it is a clear deliberate act to circumvent the plan of salvation to be saved by grace, through faith. Man must come to Jesus. Not throw Him aside to get into heaven. Not declare that there are “Many ways to God.”

Paul said, “For by grace are you saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast.”

Jesus paid a terrible but necessary price to redeem man.

To ignore that Way is perilous and second death” deadly.

This is probably one of many videos of her belief system. But note that she is playing the strings of a performer and Oprah is eating this up. It appeals to her because of one thing. Renunciation of sin is not necessary and religion, based on their rules, while ignoring the truth of the gospel, is their only objective.

Here is a video link on YouTube of Maya Angelou on Oprah’s show.

Gospel Singer & Pastor Charles Jenkins Caught In 8 Year Adultery: Nude Pics Too

Another pastor has emerged as the newest scandal to rock the Body of Christ.

According to Black Christian News Network (BCNN), Pastor Charles Jenkins admitted to an 8 year adulterous affair on Easter Sunday.

On Easter Sunday, he shared his sin before his congregation at Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church in Chicago, Ill, with his wife standing beside him.

In 2009, the Lord said to me that more scandals would occur with each one getting worse than the last.

We will see more, and yes, it will be worse than this one.

Obnoxious, a rather interesting blog and other sources, published a nude picture of this “pastor.” 

Deitrick Haddon allegedly did the same. That is, took nude photos and they were posted.

It’s a clear obsession of perversion and righteousness attempting to conjoin themselves.

2 Corinthians 6:14-18 prohibits this vile practice.

I will not post any links to nude photographs of Jenkins here because that’s a line the devil wants everyone to cross, and it’s a clear violation of decency laws.

I will say that the Lord never fails to expose.

Nahum 3:5-6 says “Behold, I am against you, says the Lord of hosts; “I will lift your skirts over your face, I will show the nations your nakedness, and the kingdoms your shame. I will cast abominable filth upon you, make you vile, and make you a spectacle.”

As with all discoveries of these sad incidences, you must always look to porn and masturbation as the root cause of all adulterous relationships.

Unless it is ascertained, there is a very small possibility that I may be wrong, but chances are, the percentages are in my favor that I may be correct.

All you have to do is look into what we do in secret and that’s where the Lord is.

Psalm 90:7, Psalm 139, and Luke 12:2 has never been known to fail.

God knows how to look  “To and Fro” at the same time.

God knows how to walk away and stay there at the same time.

What a man does in his secret life is a revelation of what’s lurking as lust in his heart. When it comes to fulfilling the desires of the flesh and the mind, there is no line a man will not cross. When they tell you that they would not cross a line, not only are they lying, they had already made provisions to do so.

The one thing that is holding them back is the perverted courage to carry out sinning against God on the next level.

Because adrenaline and testosterone work hand in hand. It adds to the excitement of sex.

When you refuse to expose the secret places of your heart before God, the secrecy turns into a false sense of security.

It is just a matter of time before it is exposed.

Ephesians 5:8-14 says, “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says:
“Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.

Well, when it comes to their marriage, you are already married. Just maintain that excitement of sex in your marriage. With relational issues, it is very difficult to be one in bed when you are separated in mind.

A man will not have sex with his wife when he feels other issues in the marriage are unresolved, ongoing, and heated. A woman will not give her husband sex when she is not connected emotionally, or have unresolved issues, and is not heard by her husband. Both are responsible when both put up walls that prevent intimacy because of resolvable issues.

A man is wired for sex, according to Dr. William Struthers. When a man wants sex, he can turn on his sexuality easier than a woman. A woman can turn on sex too, but sometimes, not all the time, but other times, she could. After cracking her code of emotional connection. So when he is not connected to his wife at home, he will seek connection(s) elsewhere.

This will include porn and masturbation.

But here is the kicker.

He’s with the same mistress for eight years.

The mistress was in a one year marriage prior to the adultery.

Eight years of having sex with another woman, with surprisingly, at this point, no love children.

Are we missing something?

Is it possible that the mistress got pregnant and had an abortion(s)? It’s quite possible but until there is evidence, it is all speculation and rumors.

Many men and women struggle with the relational aspect of marriage. Such may or may not be the case with Jenkins, but when you have been in an adulterous relationship for eight years, this pastor was living in hypocrisy. It gives the appearance that Jenkins living this life of fantasy is precisely and is a clear indication that his marriage is troubled.

But it may be another scenario.

People have had a “good” marriage and extra sex on the side.

Eight years is a long time to hide infidelity and adultery.

For the mistress, she just couldn’t say no to a pastor. Was she a sexually immoral woman, sent on assignment to destroy a man of God and church?

Well, for eight years, it appears that nothing is out of place. There are places of worship where an adulterous relationship with the pastor is known by the congregation and they do not care. The only thing that congregants are concerned about is the Sunday morning performance. This is where when the people in the local church, if they knew about this adulterous situation, and said nothing, they are complicit.

They are co-conspirators to adultery.

Guilty.

If the Lord told them to stay and pray, that’s one thing. If the Lord told them to leave, and they didn’t, it tells me that disobedience is normal. Hence, sin is nothing to them.

One of the things that one must understand is that God gave him, and many other pastors that are currently in adulterous relationships space to repent of Secret Sexual Sins.

Another thing that is important to understand is that if this was going on for eight years, there is little doubt that this was happening in plain sight and people will look the other way to have a little “heaven and hell in earth.”

And if this adultery isn’t enough, a few years ago, CNN did a study regarding men with prostate cancer. The study concluded that men with an aggressive form of prostate cancer committed adultery prior to their diagnosis.

And if this isn’t enough……

The foolishness of taking your picture nude, while brushing your teeth and giving the photo(s) to your mistress makes what Eddie Long did (pictures of himself in spandex) look like child’s play.

That is, if the pictures were legitimate.

People with cameras and computers have been known to concoct lies to slander folk. It’s called false misrepresentation.

Eddie Long’s scandal occurred in 2010. Charles Jenkins’ adultery started in 2006.

Get the picture?

The warning by watching others being exposed should have been enough to put the fear of God in pastors. However, when you’ve developed the four “E’s” of ministry, “Elitism, empowerment, entitlement, expediency,” based out of pride and arrogance, you deceive yourself into thinking that you are invincible.

That nothing will happen to you.

The nude pictures is like World’s Dumbness Preachers.”

No, there is no reality show named as such, but I wouldn’t doubt it one moment if a reality show comes up where we watch preachers do the dumbest things.

This ranks at the top so far.

If the picture is doctored, fixed, and in anyway a false picture, by all means we will correct this.

But here is the other kicker, they must take that picture down from the internet because it violates decency laws.

It is no different than pornography.

Many of you have heard Charles Jenkins “Awesome.”

Now is the time for him, his wife, and family to lean on the awesome mercy of God.

Here is the story from BCNN.

Pro Sports & Pink Fluffy Poodles

In yet, another “disciplining” of a pro sports player that tweeted “inappropriate” comments about a homosexual NFL football player, we see that this is now the new standard. More than this, while this is proceeding with speed in the world, no doubt that they would like to silence the true believers of Jesus Christ.

They would love to forever silence the truth and the preachers of truth. We should not be surprised. We know that legislation is in place and they are waiting for the right moment to impose strong legal wording on the local, state, and federal levels to impose “Nebuchadnezzar rules. That’s when the music plays and everyone bows to the statue. If they don’t bow, they get burned.

For people who play pro sports and make free speech or First Amendment rights comments, against the sin of homosexuality, they get homosexual handled.

Back in the day, we would call it “man handled,” but this is nothing less than the suppression of free speech.

But here’s the kicker.

Sinners are attempting to make the righteous repent for sinning against LGBT.

Last we check, Jesus said in the Bible to sinners against God and His holiness that we must repent for sinning against the holy God.

As usual, sinners, just like their father, the devil, got it all twisted.

Professing to be wise, they became fools.” as Paul said.

Any way, Miami Dolphins Safety Don Jones was fined an undisclosed amount and banned from team activities until he completes “sensitivity training” for his tweet remarks of Michael Sam who was recently drafted into the NFL. Sam is considered the first openly homosexual NFL player to be drafted.

Michael Sam and his homosexual lover shared a perverted, obscene, homosexual kiss that was made public and Jones tweeted his distaste.

As any man should.

Don Jones expressed his free speech rights because he was repulsed by it, as any man should.

However, this leads me to believe that in the pro sports world, hidden in their contracts, is legal wording that discourages pro players from saying anything disparagingly about anyone involved the sin of homosexuality. Does the Miami Dolphins have the right to impose fines and require their employees to attend sensitivity training? If it is in the contract, and you sign it, guess what?

You have surrendered your free speech rights.

But thank God that I don’t have a contract with the Miami Dolphins.

I can say what I want because God called me to preach and not anyone else.

In the United States, while it is still day, the First Amendment is still a constitutional right. Something that I, as a Navy veteran, affirmed to protect and defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Seems to me that we have a lot of domesticated enemies that would love to withdraw the First Amendment and clamp down the righteous from preaching against the sin of homosexuality, or any sin for that matter.

Football and other sports have now become sensitive.”

We expect women to be sensitive but when a man gets feminine sensitive, it’s a world where ladies can’t compete.

Pro sports has turn from being a pit bull and turned themselves into pink fluffy poodles.

Worse has been said in the locker rooms and you know it, and that with women reporters in the locker room. (Bad mistake, but that’s what America wants).

We can understand if it were real Civil Rights comments about race.

But because people these days do not know the difference between the sin of homosexuality and skin, as soon as anyone says anything about the sin of homosexuality, LGBT is quick to pounce on people.

As usual, president Obama congratulated Michael Sam on being homosexual. Not about football. It wasn’t about football. It was about the sin of homosexuality.

Here is what the president said….

“The president congratulates Michael Sam, the Rams and the NFL for taking an important step forward today in our Nation’s journey,” the White House said in a statement. “From the playing field to the corporate boardroom, LGBT Americans prove every day that you should be judged by what you do and not who you are.”

Here is what the Bible says, whether you believe the Bible or not…….

Revelation 20:11-15
The Great White Throne Judgment

“Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.”

So much for being judged by what you do and who you are.

This is the hypocrisy that is evident in the United States.

Will his homosexuality affect the way he plays? And will it affect the way people watch sports?

It already has.

To most people, including professed believers in the church, it’s neither here nor there. They will watch it any way.

Well, this is what LGBT argues all the time. That he is a sports figure that happens to be a practicing sodomite. Most people will not think one thing about it because they believe that one thing doesn’t have anything to do with the other. What people do not realize is that the showcasing of the sin of homosexuality is another way to get people to believe that perversion is innocent.

In the eyes of God, perversion is perversion. We see clearly that the world will seek any and every means necessary to justify sin.

Sin is never justified. Sin is condemned in the flesh of Jesus.

The only way that the world could get around it, (and there is no way of getting around the truth) is to exchanged the truth for the lie.

Romans 1:24-25 “Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.”

What do they do?

Exchanged the truth of God for the lie. In other words, they took the truth, threw it away, and put in its place, the lie.

Isaiah 5:20-21 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

We must remember that 3 to 4% of the American population are practitioners of the sin of homosexuality. They remain a minority. Since they cannot reproduce, they are looking for means to, at the very least, maintain these numbers. They are looking to suppress the truth and legislate from the bench to get their way. They have already infiltrated into almost every fabric of life by normalizing the sin of homosexuality.

From the church to the world.

But God is never surprised and God is never caught off guard.

Sadly, if Don Jones do not know the Lord and he signed that contract with a clear, ambiguous, or hidden stipulation(s), that he cannot say anything about the sin of homosexuality, then he is stuck. But if you are in the Lord, James 4:4 is staring at you. We cannot compromise the Word of God because after football, or any job, or sports is over, should Jesus tarries, we will die and then the judgment (see Hebrews 9:27).

Here is the article.

AIDS Epidemic In Black America

I watched a Frontline documentary of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Black America made around July of 2012.

Just because people fail the standard, it doesn’t mean that the standard had failed in and of itself.

When I watched it, I wasn’t stunned about the statistics but what stunned me was the way they depicted God and the preacher, and the church as aloft and unconcerned about the disease. There is truth in this but the way that they spun this, the piece made the church look like it’s completely out of touch. That’s because they’ve heard from preachers that they do not want to touch the issue.

There is no doubt, or denial that this mindset is present in pastoral leadership across the nation.

From the standpoint of sexual immorality operating in pastors and churches, there is truth. We are guilty of hypocrisy without question. We are also guilty of not preaching and living what we preached. We are guilty of giving up the standard of holiness. We are guilty beyond a shadow of reasonable doubt.

And there is no excuse!!!!

Several years ago, when the disease was identified, a person said that each person will know of a person diagnosed with HIV/AIDS.

He was not kidding.

While the information was crucial, it was almost as if, no……it was that they blamed God for the maladies of man.

Psalm 107:17 says…..”Fools, because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, were afflicted.”

In one part, a homosexual man was in church and the pastor said that a homosexual spirit is in this church. The pastor proceeded to where the homosexual man was and laid his hands on him to cast that devil out. The homosexual proceeded to grab the arm of the pastor. The one thing that we have to understand about demon power is that when they are in the house of the Lord, they will do everything to stay in a person.

But the homosexual’s lover told the pastor and the pastor proceeded to “minister” to the homosexual. In other words, the pastor had inside information and that became the reason why the homosexual was able to grab the pastor.

Had it been a supernatural manifestation of the Holy Spirit by a “word of knowledge,” then there would have been a greater chance of deliverance.

His homosexual lover set him up and the results gave the appearance that God cannot deliver a homosexual.

Then they had Magic Johnson.

When he came out an announced that he was diagnosed.

Magic said that all the Laker teammates didn’t want Magic to be on the team, including A.C. Green. A.C. Green is the believer of Jesus on that team and Magic was surprised that A.C. turned on him too. Well, the Bible is clear about sin and unrighteousness. Magic was hurt because A.C. Green and Magic were close.

However, A.C. Green had a Biblical standard and mandate to stay holy before God. Magic, at anytime, could have stopped the adultery, but he choose not to. The results speaks for itself.

Psalm 107:17 “Fools, because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, were afflicted.”

A.C. Green and Magic “made up” but again the damage was done that believers of the Lord Jesus Christ are not loving, insensitive, and intolerant of sin and sinners.

A preacher in the South had put up a sign that said something about the HIV/AIDS epidemic came by way of homosexuality. He was persecuted and ridiculed. A homosexual man came behind that piece and said that God loves all His children.

John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.”

You see, in order for someone to be His child, you must be born again. If you are not born again, you cannot be His child.

Once again, the world has made the Lord God out to be wrong. The followers of Jesus are wrong. And the Bible is wrong.

The documentary showed a young lady that became HIV infected and blamed the government for not educating her. There was a segment where in the school the abstinence curriculum was taught. The educators know that the teens are having sex, Biblically called fornication. However, they blame abstinence as the failure when educators, they claim, must include other ways to protect themselves.

Acts 15:20 “Abstain…….from sexual immorality.”

1 Thessalonians 4:3  “Abstain…….from sexual immorality.”

1 Peter 2:11 “…abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul…”

In these three powerful verses of Scripture is God’s rule to avoid sexually transmitted diseases.

Yet…

Psalm 107:17 “Fools, because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, were afflicted” became their epitaph.

It was a deliberate act to defy abstinence.

And if that weren’t enough. There were men and women that were finding HIV positive mates to hook up with. It is a statement that they had nothing to lose. Instead of repenting and seeking God, they choose to “hook up” and continue in sin.

There is also a segment where a woman married a man, but the man deliberately withheld information about a blood test one year before he married her. She discovered her husband’s test results in his Bible and she confronted her husband about it. She got tested and two weeks later, the results came. She ended up HIV positive. They’ve since divorced but the damage was done. They went through a pre-marital counseling session with their pastor and he taught them not to have secrets between each other.

As a result of keeping his HIV a secret, she is now positive.

There was another segment where this HIV/AIDS man was allowed to teach HIV/AIDS to children in the church. Not from an abstinence perspective or that homosexuality is a sin, but to give them information about protecting themselves. Sadly, they do not see that this approach is a failure because young people today are still having homosexual contact.

SO, the best thing to do is to operate from a fall back position.

Let them explore their sexuality but if they contract the disease, it’s alright. We will take it from there and give them all the information they need to get through the discovery.

Psalm 107:17 “Fools, because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, were afflicted.”

There was another segment where they showed president Bush offering billions of dollars for the AIDS crisis in Africa and it was lauded as one of the most positive defining moments in US history, but here in the United States, the suffering continues. With just the African American population alone, we would rank 16 in the world in dealing with HIV/AIDS. A while back, every 39 minutes someone would be diagnosed with HIV/AIDS.

Every 10 minutes is the new bench mark.

Just a few blocks from the nation’s capital is the District of Columbia. Columbia, by the way is a goddess. In this district is the highest epidemic of HIV/AIDS in the country. And as far as same sex marriage is concerned, should we be surprised. Feverishly, they’ve been trying to gain a stronghold in stopping the epidemic of HIV/AIDS by passing out needles, condoms, and educating people, but this effort is not even working and they know it.

One preacher was standing on the street corner and he was helping to pass out clean needles. He declared that the church “dropped the ball” on this and that the church was no where to be found in the community. In that community where they are having a drug epidemic, there were 22 churches.

So much for prayer and evangelism.

You see, you can pray all you want, and that’s what we are supposed to do. Jesus said that “My house shall be called a house of prayer.”

But we could be so wrapped up in ineffective praying because we are ineffective in evangelism. Granted, also, the world is resistant to the gospel, but that is no excuse not to be doing what we are apposed to be doing.

They claim that since handing out needles, drug use is not on the rise? The point they are making is that they are doing something to attack the epidemic, but in essence what they are doing is fostering the promotion of fornication, adultery and homosexuality, drug use, and alcoholism. IN other words, they are not preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS but encouraging the continual use.

You see, the Bible is clear about how to avoid it all together. But people will not listen and do what the Bible says. First, they must repent. Then they ask God for forgiveness. Then the Holy Spirit comes in to the heart of a man, and they get born again. Then they take the teachings of Jesus and apply it to their lives, to live holy before God.

All around them are supposed to be houses of worship where people are taught the Word of God. However, you cannot make people live out something that they do not want. Nonetheless, the “Ark” is there. At anytime, a person could turn their hearts over to the Lord, but people refuse to do so. And yes, because the preacher and the saints are not living the way they are supposed to, they are ill-equipped to lead sinners to Jesus.

A sinner cannot lead another sinner to salvation.

However, one thing is for sure. There is a copy of the Bible that is easily obtainable. In fact, just google the Bible and there you have it. We are without any excuse. At anytime, we could call it quits with sin and live righteous lives in obedience to the Holy Scriptures.

Just because people fail the standard, it doesn’t mean that the standard had failed in and of itself.

Then in the last segment, there were people in a church that were homosexuals, and HIV positive.

It gave the appearance that the Lord was no longer there and that man has to do this on his own, without God.

Instead of seeking the face of God in repentance, they defied the Lord.

It was as if they raised the flag of defiance against the known will of God.

It would have been something if they would have all fell on their face before God and ask for mercy, but they didn’t.

Instead, they kept saying through the documentary that Endgame for HIV/AIDS must come.

In that entire segment, there was no mention of the cause of all of this, with the exception of one preacher.

Sin!!!!!

Sin is the reason for the condition.

When we decide that we have had enough of living according to the lusts of the flesh, the lusts of the eyes, and the pride of life (see 1 John 2:15-17), then the power and guilt of sin will be a thing of the past. The Lord Jesus destroyed the power of the devil, the guilt and shame of sin on the cross. The only thing that we have to do is accept the provision of grace through faith, obey the Word of God, and the Lord will help us.

What could the church do in the mean time?

Keep preaching and living the Word of God.

What about those that just can’t abstain and they fall into sin, and end up with STDs?

You be available to walk them through the process of deliverance. IF it all possible, have support groups and resources available. But most importantly, it means nothing if their names are not written in the Book of Life. You might be able to help them with human resources, but death is certain to come for us all. It means nothing if a person passes away, and they do not know Jesus.

Eternity is a long time. You may have gotten help with natural things, but it means nothing when you close your eyes for the last time, and they close the lid of that casket.

 

Brian Carn Challenged On Alleged Fornication

As you know, Brian Carn was accused of passing on a STD to a woman. The woman exposed her ordeal and it went viral. However, when the accusation took place, Brian Carn wasn’t present to defend himself. So it’s a “he said, she said” situation and apart from that, the truth will evade us, but not for long. Luke 12:2 has an unbeaten history record.

“For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known.”

Sooner or later, sealed records and all will be exposed.

In the interview, Brian Carn didn’t do as we expected, and we shouldn’t be surprised.

When tons of money is to be made and with speaking engagements lined up, you do not want to mess it up by admitting to fornication. Sadly, the only reason why pastors invite this young man to their pulpits is to draw large crowds and pull in a lot of money. It’s not about ministering to people. It’s about the god of money.

All across the country, false prophets and teachers have been duping the people because folk do not know their Bibles.

Read Proverbs 14:15 and you will know why.

In these places, these false prophets are so generic in their delivery of their “word” to people that pastors are allowing the wolf to come right in and eat the sheep in broad daylight. After the service is over, and they count up the money, because the people do not know the Word of God, they are still in their messed up situation that “God” told them they would come out of.

The hype of “praise and worship” sets the atmosphere. A little neck jerking sermon, and the bait is set. All of a sudden, slow emotional music enters the arena, and the people are emotionally exposed. Rapists wish they had it this good because that’s what is taking place in the church. The pastor, and false prophets and teachers they are bringing in the house are raping the people. In broad daylight.

The people are so emotionally exposed that it is no different than smooth talking men that get women into bed. Or it’s the seductive immoral woman that exposes enough skin to attract a sexually immoral preacher, who is a predator to fornicate or adulterate with.

One of the things that I admire about truthful men of God is that they expose themselves and never look to use ambiguity. I believe that measurable transparency is the ability to put on the table truthful facts about their life that helps people live victorious lives.

Measurable transparency includes putting out truthful facts to destroy and put to rest any reasonable doubt, evasiveness, and ambiguity.

So truthful that sometimes, people will need not ask a follow up question.

However, we must refrain from exposing ourselves in such a way that self righteousness, pride and arrogance emerges.

Most people would call it “wearing it on their sleeve.”

In other words, establishing one’s deliverance from Secret Sexual Sins as a “badge of honor.”

There was a time I did just that and fell on my face back into self gratification, commonly called masturbation. All I did was parade around to the world how I delivered myself. I thought I was delivered but hidden in my flesh were tell tale signs of an ulterior motive that needed to be exposed and destroyed.

What were those motives?

To use His deliverance as a cloak to continue in sin to fulfill the lusts of the flesh and mind and…..

to be a person on the stage to be seen by all.

Shenanigans only live to deceive themselves.

You see, false ministry is not real unless you are seen. And when you have a desire to be seen and heard, it is just a show. No one gets truly delivered. They just go away feeling good and sinning as before. Like pastor, like people.

After the Lord death with me, I had to make some serious changes that help protect me from me.

It is very easy to get a swelled head in ministry. As Paul said, “Knowledge puffs up.”

Whenever we appear that we have conquered something is the moment that the test comes. God knows our flesh, but He is the one that helps us to see who we really are and when we have other motives than His, it is just a matter of time before we fall.

In this video, Brian Carn was challenged with a question from Tiffany Morriar. She hosted a radio show that had Brian Carn on and she started with questions on holiness, Then she asked him whether or not he dated. Then she asked questions about what people said about his alleged fornicating.

As we all know that there are people that will malign you, say things that ought not be said, and drag your name in the mud because of the call of God upon your life. However, when point blank questions are asked, it demands point blank answers.

The questioning were with “soft toss” questions. I believe that this approach was effective so as not to present “hostile questions” that might scare Brian Carn to force him to hang up the phone.

But he did something worse.

He evaded the question by appearing to be spiritually aloft and by making the detractors” appear to be the “enemy.”

In court, when an attorney asks a question and the witness turns on the evasiveness, the attorney asks the judge if he could treat the witness as a “hostile witness.”

When it appears that at one time you are willing to cooperate, and then shut down the cooperation, the attorney then switches the line of questioning to get the witness to state truthful facts. The judge will at times instruct the witness to answer the question or be in contempt of court.

But this was not a trial by jury or judge. This was just fact finding that appeared to be very evasive on the part of Brian Carn.

We need to ask questions to people with respect, and dignity.

However, what about the dignity and respect for God and His Word?

When you hear the answers, there is no question that avoiding the issue is a person’s agenda.

For those of you that are reading, some of you may be saying that you are being judgmental. Of course, you are using Matthew 7:1, but you are isolating the text. Read verses 2 through 5.

The Bible also says “Those that name the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”

You will hear on this video his use of the Scriptures but also you will hear his defense of not hurting anyone that said anything malicious to him or about him. That he would not fight those that “abuse, misuse, or persecute” him.

However, direct questions require direct answers.

While we are on this subject, we must understand that there’s a lot of smooth talking preachers in the pulpit. One minute, they are talking great “swelling words,” and in the same breath, after service, they are sweet talking your clothes off. On the other hand, women need not put themselves in a position to even be by themselves with a “man who claims to preach for God.” 

That is, of course, if they are married.

Here is another thing. To avoid the hint or appearance of fornication, get married. The questions will cease as long as a man stays faithful to God and to his wife, and family. The questions will continue as long as you are single. Most men will get married and live fruitful lives, avoiding even the hint of sin, others will commit adultery because they could never control the lusts of the flesh and mind. Some men refuse to marry because they are called to be celibate. But celibacy is not the goal. Holiness is the goal.

True holiness is about never hurting the Lord in sin and ultimately living a life that is pleasing to the Lord.

Other than that, if they call you up to the hotel room after a high time in the conference room of the same hotel, don’t you go up there.”

Sadly, many women will not heed this advice and go to a married or single man of God’s hotel room anyway to get a “word from God.”

Preachers that live in sin and people that live in sin is a stench before God and hypocritical to the world.

The intent of this write up is not to throw mud but to offer a glimpse of why we hold the cards of sin tight to our chest. The misinformation is out there and people will set you up, but on the other hand, what preachers need to do is be candid with their lives. More than ever, the people are being deceived by false teachers and prophets. It doesn’t take much to tell the truth and answer the question. If God is to use us to help people, we must sometimes, bear all and suck up the embarrassment in order for the gospel of Jesus Christ not be blasphemed.

The world already knows that the people and pastors are living scandalous lives. They already know that some of us are the biggest hypocrites the world has ever seen. What the world does is that they question our deliverance. What we need to do is prove them wrong by laying our lives on the table according to Ephesians 5:8-142 Corinthians 6:14-18, and 1 Corinthians 6:9-11.

To always say, “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God,” we always use that as a defensive tool to get the heat off. Few people read the next verse, yet, live it.

“Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.”

Fewer people live out Romans chapter 6. Especially the part, Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal (death doomed) bodies.”

People want to know whether we are living according to the Scriptures. If not, we are disqualified as true prophets and teachers.

To avoid disqualification, we must present our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God which is our reasonable service.

Rebellious cannot tell rebellion what to do.

Therefore, when you watch this YouTube video, please note that God demands measurable transparency. 

Not ambiguity that keeps people guessing.

Below is the YouTube video of the radio broadcast.

And remember.

Direct questions require a direct answer.

“Let your “Yea be yea and your nay be nay” anything more than these is sin.”
