Once again, my thanks to my friend and colleague, Pastor DL Foster of GCMWatch for posting this news link on FB.
It appears that this article has hit a nerve on the plight of unwed Black mothers. According to NBC News, “Blacks struggle with 72% unwed rate.”
Becoming an unwed mother is avoidable.
Just like being an unwed dad is avoidable.
The diabolical solutions of condoms, abortion, morning after pills, and LGBT agenda driven issues have done more harm and no good AT ALL for Black people, or any race for that matter.
There’s no sense in being in denial about it. Yet, we seem to like to lie to ourselves. We love shooting ourselves in the foot. We love to bang our heads against the wall with blood streaming down our faces.
We can flip the dumb switch to the off position anytime we’re ready.
You do not have to have sex outside of marriage. In fact, it is a sin according to the Bible. Whether you believe the Bible or not, you are not excused or exempt from judgment because you don’t believe.
Or if you are a selective believer, you are accountable according to Romans 3:23 and Hebrews 9:27.
Ecclesiastes 3:15 says,
“That which is has already been,
And what is to be has already been;
And God requires an account of what is past.”
1 Peter 4:3-6
For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles —when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries.
In regard to these, they think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you.
They will give an account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.
For this reason the gospel was preached also to those who are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.
It is clear that the answer to the unwed question is found in the Word of God.
Genesis 2:24 24 “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and shall become united and cleave to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”
Many of you will say that’s fine but the real issue is available black men. Look outside the window preacher. Where are they?
They are uneducated. They are drug dealers. They are in jail. They are unemployed. They are playing the field of homosexuality. They are marrying White women, or other ethnic races other than their own.
They are everywhere except where they are supposed to be.
Where can available single Black women find available single Black men if this is all we have left?
The homosexual lifestyle and abortion has a lot to do with the lopsidedness of available men.
For a long time, the church and the preacher has miserably failed to adequately live and preach the Word of God. However, there are the few that do.
Here’s another thing.
The people outside the church, that is, those that never want to live holy, never intended to live for God.
Jesus said in John 3:18-21 these words, “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
You see, the solution to all of life’s problems begins with God and His Word, yet, people refuse to come to the Lord.
We can educate all we want, and there is nothing wrong with education and to come together to discuss solutions to this problem is commendable. BUT, we sometimes use discussion as either a temporary appeasement apparatus, or it’s a delay tactic for fear of real implementation to stop a situation.
It’s like watching a freight train go down hill with no brakes, getting ready to make a turn.
The end results speaks for itself.
When it comes to abortion, for instance, Black people kill more babies than any other ethnic group in the nation. For instance, in NYS, the abortion rate is two times more than the national average. If we Black folks were really concerned, and if we were really serious about putting an end to this madness, we would have done so already.
98% of all abortions is because the mother deems the child an “inconvenience.”
This tells us one thing.
Fornication and adultery in NYS (New York State) is twice the national average.
The beginning of all problems starts with SIN (Selfish Individual Needs).
It’s a trifecta.
Sexual immorality, incarceration, lack of education.
Above this trifecta that affects Black people is the blatant, deliberate unwillingness to repent.
1 John 2:15-17 says, “Love not the world neither the things that are in the world. For all that is in the world. The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world passes away, and the lust thereof but he that does the will of God abides forever.”
Still, preacher…….look outside the window.
Believe me, I am. The Lord and I is seeing what is happening.
Well, what do you see, preacher?
We see people deliberately ignoring the Word of God.
As I read the article, there was one woman that said that she couldn’t deal with marriage. Well, she participated in the benefits of marriage.
What do you see, preacher?
I see males acting like males.
Males thinking with the lower head and completely disregarding the upper head, as Dr. Fred Price once said over 30 years ago.
Some ignorant Black males are not operating on all four cylinders.
It is clear by the statistics that children in families within the framework of holy matrimony do well.
Marriage, as defined by God in His Word, is the best environment for children.
With the odds against Black males, we know that this makes it very tough to raise children properly. What has happened is that we have attempted to implement solutions without God and His Word. Every time we read about these horror stories, we see that because people do it without God, they believe that they can get along without Him.
With the people of God in the church, we see that the same thing is happening.
Blacks attend church more than any other ethnic group in the nation, yet, we do not agree with the Word of God. Just look at this.
Blacks attend church more than any other ethnic group in the nation.
Blacks kill more babies than any other ethnic group in the nation.
Black women are single parents more than any other ethnic group in the nation.
Black men are incarcerated more than any other ethnic group in the nation.
Blacks are unemployed more than any other ethnic group in the nation.
Blacks have half the new HIV/AIDS cases than any other ethnic group in the nation.
This is proof that we may attend church, but we don’t care about living the truth in the Word of God.
This makes us look as dumb as a bag of hammers.
The preacher is to be blamed and the professed believer is to be blamed.
Now correct me in any of this. Feel free to do me a favor and tell me that I am wrong, and show me with clear irrefutable evidence.
But people will not heed the Word of God as stated by Jesus in John chapter 3 because men loved darkness than light.
So how long have we been fooling ourselves? How long have we been walking around with a big hole in our pants? How long have we been smelling really bad, like we’ve been bathing in vomit, human and animal feces combined? How long have we been sleeping with a corpse in our bed?
A very long time.
We’ve grown accustomed to the smell that tolerating it is no problem.
So, are we to just sit and do nothing?
No watchman on the wall is to shirk his or her duty of preaching the unadulterated Word of God.
In this moment in time, we can address this problem by declaring our houses of worship as a holy place of God, from the pulpit to the door. In this moment in time, we can teach discipline through the Word of God. In this moment of time, we can seek God, pray, and obey the Word of God. This is not a luxury. It is mandatory.
Without the gospel of Jesus Christ, no man made solution will work. We could talk until we are blue in the face, but until we preach what we live and live what we preach, we are wasting each breath we take.
Ladies, it doesn’t begin with you, it begins with Black brothers coming back to the heart of the Father, through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Ladies, the mentality of a sinning male is that why buy the cow when the milk is free? If you give him what he wants, what does that make you?
Makes both of you fornicators.
And brothers, if she offers what you want without getting married, Proverbs chapters 6 and 7 is for you.
Never fall for the seductive sexually immoral woman. Be like Joseph and run. Everyone of her guests were mighty men and the house of a seductive woman is the staircase to HELL!!!!
There is no other solution available.
If a man is not willing to marry you, walk away from him. You have to believe that he is not the last option on the planet. An uncircumcised in heart male is only after one thing. What is between your legs. After he is done, he will go to the next, and the next, and the next. But a man that highly worships God is only after one thing.
To please God.
Marriage is tough. Let no one fool you, however, it is in this environment there is safety, so long as both the male and female have the Lord and learn how to treat each other with honor, dignity, and respect for God and His Word first, then for each other.
I guarantee you that we will read more articles like the one you are about to read. There is no question in my mind.
But I challenge you to read in these articles that will come of any real Biblical solutions.
Adultery and fornication is a sin before God. Hebrews 13:4 says….“Marriage is honorable among all and the bed undefiled (without human feces), but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.”
1 Corinthians 6:9 says, “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”
Isaiah the prophet said these words.
“Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth!
For the Lord has spoken:
“I have nourished and brought up children,
And they have rebelled against Me;
The ox knows its owner
And the donkey its master’s crib;
But Israel does not know,
My people do not consider.”
Alas, sinful nation,
A people laden with iniquity,
A brood of evildoers,
Children who are corrupters!
They have forsaken the Lord,
They have provoked to anger
The Holy One of Israel,
They have turned away backward.”
Well preacher, all you’ve talk about is our dirty laundry for all to see. You didn’t offer one concrete solution.
Well you have failed once again to read the Scriptures that I’ve placed in this article. And on top of that, you deliberately refused to accept God’s plan as the solution. That’s where the problem will always be.
Man’s deliberate refusal to do what the Word of God said.
Here is this stunning article from NBC News.
