AMERICA UNITE: OVERCOME EVIL WITH GOOD

AMERICA UNITE: OVERCOME EVIL WITH GOOD

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8 Our hearts go out and our prayers go up for the victims in America’s most recent tragedies. Perhaps the most comforting compliment to President and First Lady Trump’s outreach to the families of the victims…

Giftings and Callings

Giftings and Callings

We are about a week into 2015, and the melee is almost deafening. Yet, in the distance, there is a “still, small voice” calling to us. Yes, the US Congress has a new face so to speak. Yes, America is waking up to the truth that racism still exists in our land. We know that anger and violence are lurking about. Yet, in the distance, there is a voice crying in the wilderness, compelling those who hear to use our…

When a Nation Becomes Obsolete

When a Nation Becomes Obsolete

A few days ago, a person who is a highly respected professional shared a series of blogs with me. The title of the first article, “With no more cotton to pick, what will America do with 40 million black people?” resonated in my being, again. Mark Crutcher of Life Dynamics asks virtually the same question in his best selling documentary Maafa 21. I found this observation chilling in Maafa 21, and just as disturbing by this new release of information…

You’re Teaching My Child What?

You’re Teaching My Child What?

A recent article from the UK caught my eye this week. It talked about the corruption of our current generation. The sexualisation of our young people is something I‘ve blogged about and something that needs to be re-visited. The article is written by a child psychologist who states, “I see the signs that are familiar to every parent: the eight-year-olds who are already worried about their figures; the ‘too-sexy too-soon’ 12-year-olds who won’t go out without make-up; the magazines aimed…

Where There Is Hope, There Is Love!

Where There Is Hope, There Is Love!

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” – 1 Corinthians 13:13 I’m in the midst of a whirlwind tour in Connecticut. It’s such a joy to see pastors, students, teachers, and community folk gathered together to hear the gospel of life, the pro-life message, the message of the love of Jesus Christ. Even in Connecticut, a very liberal state, there is hope; there is love. From the road, Dr. Alveda King…

Keeping the message of sanctity of life in the forefront

Keeping the message of sanctity of life in the forefront

While abortion wasn’t mentioned in the presidential debate last week, a TV ad featuring abortion survivor Melissa Ohden ran on Denver’s NBC affiliate during the presidential debate. The ad, produced by the Susan B. Anthony List’s Women Speak Out political action committee, criticizes President Obama for opposing an Illinois bill that would have protected babies born alive after an abortion.

Pastors Speak On Abortion In The African American Community

Pastors Speak On Abortion In The African American Community

By Colette M. Jenkins Beacon Journal religion writer Three Northeast Ohio pastors have come together to urge pastors in the African-American church to use their pulpits to address issues affecting the black community. They’re starting with abortion. “I am not ashamed to say I am a black pro-life pastor and that the African-American church is guilty of not taking the lead on issues like abortion,” said the Rev. Walter Moss of Foursquare Church in Canton. “As pastors, we need to…
