National Emergency! The Urban Cure Standing In Defense Of Our Communities


Pastors Of The Urban Cure Pastors Network At The National Press Club Washington D.C. 2/26/2015
I was proud to be one of the pastors that recently heard and heeded the call of God joining others in Washington D.C., our nations capitol, to speak to this generation regarding our country's direction and treatment of Israel. 

As a part of this effort we discussed the many various ways that Black leadership, including that of the Congressional group called the Congressional Black Caucus, has let the Black community down. By far and large it is many of those "Black leaders" who have been nothing more than "on the take" from our communities while doing very little to nothing to change the conditions of the same communities in which they reside.

Don't get me wrong. I am not sophomoric as it pertains to what politics is. I know that successful politics always includes collaboration, negotiation and even compromise. So none of those things, within their proper order are at question. What is at question however, is the misdirection that many of these political leaders use when it comes to directing policy and even controlling the thoughts of the community in which they serve. 

You see, when a representative is able to "get dollars" for their community or sit on certain Congressional committees, many think they have arrived and that's all there is to it. 
"Let me give you what you need. Only the first one is free. Everything else costs." 
This is the legal tender that we have been fed in American politics and especially within the Black community. No matter how the President boasts that unemployment is down and poverty is low, the number of Black folk placed on food stamps, and the number of Black folk suffering from unemployment under his Presidency continues to increase at alarming rates.  

On Unemployment:
"When Obama entered office on January 20, 2009, U.S. unemployment stood at 7.8 percent. By April 2014, that Bureau of Labor Statistics figure had fallen to 6.3 percent — a modest improvement. Among blacks overall, joblessness dropped, though less significantly — from 12.7 to 11.6 percent. But for blacks aged 16 to 19, unemployment grew from 35.3 to 36.8 percent." ~ The National Review Online 5/16/2014 
On Poverty: 
"Poverty has increased under Obama. Overall, 14.3 percent of Americans were below the poverty line in January 2009, versus 15.0 percent in 2012, according to the latest available data from the Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey. Similarly, the share of black Americans living in poverty expanded from 25.8 to 27.2 percent." ~ The National Review Online 5/16/2014
On Food Assistance (aka: Stamps):
"America’s population of food-stamp recipients soared overall from 32,889,000 in 2009 to 46,022,000 in 2012, the latest Agriculture Department statistics show. For blacks, the analogous numbers are 7,393,000 when Obama arrived to 10,955,000 in 2012." The National Review Online 5/16/2014

Why Fight?


What is often misconstrued as a fight against our first Black President and against other political issues, is not really a fight against anything or anyone. It is a fight FOR the freedom and liberation of a people who have been used, battered, abused and subdued by political speech, failed promises, and fear of retribution. The retribution being:
"If you don't think like us, then you ain't Black!"
Listen, one thing is clear, on many issues, I SHO-NUFF (and that is deep country) don't think like them, and I am proud to say that. I don't think that folk should endorse abortions, look at the proliferation of liquor within the urban community as an "equal access" issue and SHO-NUFF (there it go again) don't believe that the advancement of the homosexual agenda and a redefinition of marriage is either right, a human rights issue or a matter of equality! 

I've been Black ALL my life but I DON'T THINK LIKE THEM AND NEVER WILL!

The Difference Between The House & Field Negro:
Malcom X delivered a speech in which he talked about the "House Negro" and the "Field Negro". He pointed out that the "House Negro" lived in relative comfort and enjoyed the "Master's house" even to the extent of calling it his own. He bought nothing, paid for nothing, but served the master faithfully because he received the benefits of the master's house differently than those of the field. While the "Field Negro" wished for a "strong wind" in a fire, or for the master to get sick and die, the "House Negro" would give his life to save the house, and empathized so in the master's sickness until he would ask, "What's the matter boss, WE sick?" 


Malcom was flirting with the ideas of Black Separatism at the time he delivered this riveting, comical and hard hitting speech that yet resonates today, but in our time, I am looking at these "House Negroes" that live in comfort, have their names on some political and church role, enjoying the benefits of the "house" (eg: the community) while the whole community goes to "H E (double tooth pick)" around them....THEN, they have the nerve to tell other Black folk how to think, what they should identify themselves with and by in effort to shape their identity...

ARE YOU SERIOUS???

I agree that "States Rights" in the manner that the republican party adopted it early on, and in some cases espouse today, is problematic and was not intended to help or serve the needs of Black people and the Black community in general. It is true that some folk wanted the State to have the right to stop integration, in spite of federal law...BUT...with that said, the modern and current Democratic Party solution of removing God from their party platform and endorsing just about every political and social ideology that the bible and good preachers and community leaders stand against almost every day, is not exactly a rational alternative or a way to fight back against an misused or misapplied political strategy. 

In other words, the arguments are not equal. The most staunch Democrat can be (and more likely is) a racist, like a radical right winger can be as well. Racism across party lines will exist until Jesus comes back. However, there is more to life than racism, and when I do the old "Benjamin Franklin" and separate fact from fiction, I find that I would personally much rather live by the edicts and moral constructs of God as revealed through and by biblical moral value standards than placate the populous by endorsing the rudiments of sin, wickedness and evil while worshiping at the alter of flesh and in the same breath destroying the community by redefining morality and values.

Pastors Stand

Pastor Harvey Burnett on Israel
2/26/15
Our stand FOR our communities and FOR the nation of Israel and FOR the endorsement of national allies, was one that WE, the entire country can be proud of. When the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) seeks to redefine what it means to be Black by way of its political operatives, (or what kids call OPs) I certainly think, and even know, that it is in order to combat such elitism and the disease of self exaltation. 

To the critic, might I remind you that we are not a "Kingdom", and President Obama is not the "King Of America", he is the President Of America. In addition, we have a system of government that is built upon many of the practices and policies contained within the Bible, the same Bible that records the history of our greatest ally in the Mid-East, Israel. 

We decided that we will no longer be silent as the "House Negroes" enjoy the benefits of our labor and election rallies without ever once heeding attention to our issues. i refuse to be controlled by the so called "talented 10th" endorsed by W.E.B. Dubois, because they have shown themselves to be "on the take", seeking associations, endorsements, and grant funding at all costs, while the community be damned!

In addition, I am tired of sick, twisted, and spaghetti-backed preachers, taking advantages of the churches, living in opulence while the people can barely feed themselves or stay afloat....by the way, has anyone seen "Preachers Of Detroit"? Have you experienced the economy of Detroit? I have and I am SICK!!!!

A National Emergency

Yes, I believe that this is a national emergency. We, the People, have been taken advantage of far too long. We have been fed a line of status quo, remain the same, "we care", within the church fight for position, and personal popularity over anything that pertains to the well being of the community and the endorsement of God. 

We have delivered a scheme of control that says, "you are not a part of us until you believe what we want you to believe" as I recorded in THIS ARTICLE

Well, as an infamous homosexual judge once said..."That Time Has Passed!"

CBC and all those endorsers of indecency, and those needing to control mass opion of Blacks within the community, please be served notice that we are coming. We are coming to the voting booth, we are coming to your streets, and we are coming to your neighborhoods, with a new message. A message of TRUE freedom. The message first demands that we rid ourselves of is taskmasters like you and your friends in leadership over us.
  • It demands that we rid ourselves of policies that you've endorsed that only keep us broke and impoverished.
  • It demands that we rid ourselves of unions (many of which fund your activities) who endorse failure and deliver very little value to the institutions in which they serve. 
  • It demands that we march and protest, not just against erroneous police policies, but against policies that you endorse that keep all of us broke!
  • It demands that we take the blinders off and see that the biggest problem that we face are not spawned by people who are not like us, but by people who ARE like us and pretend to have our best interest at heart. By OPs like you!
  • It demands that we change our address from the "field" in which you want us to reside, to the field that WE construct and build ourselves founded upon the values that WE cherish and hold high.
  • It demands that WE educate our children again in morality, values, and what it means to be a family. 
  • It demands that we construct systems that will truly lift up them that are bowed down, and heal them that are broken hearted instead of getting them strung out on promises to "fund" their excess solidifying their excuses.     
The Urban Cure Solution

The National Press Conference was just one sort of event that the Urban Cure is doing to make a difference in this country and in our communities. However, with that said, the Urban Cure needs your help. 

Believe me, prior to our arrival in Washington D.C. no one had any inkling that there was an alternate voice emanating from the Black community, on the issues surrounding Benjamin Netanyahu's visit. It was nearly a forgone conclusion that all us "field Negroes" thought the same and were controlled by our "popular elite" "house Negro"...I believe part of the President's frustration was not only his total disrespect of our number one ally in the war against terror, but the fact that us little ole Black preachers, that are very active within our communities will not be silenced by either him or his OPs. 

Money Makes A Difference

Evil proliferates because people fund it. Good should receive the support of those who intend well rather than the mere "well wishes" that good spreads itself. Support that which is good. GIVE to the Urban Cure  to make sure that this message of liberation continues until we undo the mess that has been done by the endorsement of the liberal political agenda that our current regime espouses.  

I am not on Urban Cure payroll and I do not receive a percentage or commission of any of the proceeds it receives. Giving to THIS blog can be done at THIS LINK and gifts of any size are welcomed and used for the furtherance of ministry, not my personal kingdom...but the focus is to give to an organization that places their money where their mouth is and that is seeking to make a difference that we can all be proud of in this world. I believe that the Urban Cure is just that organization as I have seen them in operation and cannot praise them enough for their courage. 

This is what it will take to bring our people and our country back from the brink of destruction that it teeters on...COURAGE! Will you be one that makes and takes a stand along with us?

Blessed!

Islam, Submission With No Peace. Pt. 11...Is Andre Carson A Muslim OP?

Is Representative Andre Carson (D-Ind.) a Muslim OP? 
(read the dossier and see the video at the end of this article)

It has come to our attention that one of the most recent appointees to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), Andre Carson, is not only a Muslim, but a Muslim who has strong ties to terrorist groups which have avowed to destroy and subjugate America to Islam with the aim of instituting Sharia. 

Brief History 

Many of our readers have never heard of the 2008 Holy Land Foundation HAMAS terror funding trial. In fact, we had not heard of it prior to this week, when we spoke up on behalf of freedom and in favor of the appearance of our Middle East ally, Prime Minister Benjamin Netenyahu of Israel as he addresses the United States Congress this week. 

First, for anyone wanting a deeper examination of this case and a view of actual documents to confirm what we are presenting, please click HERE.

The 2008 trial revealed many previously unknown things: 

1- The trial revealed that the Muslim Brotherhood was active in America, had a mission and was seeking the best way to subjugate America to its belief and lifestyle which is defined in the most ultimate way by the application of the system of  Sharia law. 

2- The trial also revealed the network of terror related groups, their founding and the intent of the leadership of those groups, and how they should operate both on a solo and corporate basis.  

How Did This Come To The Light?


The home of solo jihadist, Ismail Elbarasse, after being detained by police for cause, was searched. The search turned up 8 boxes of Muslim Brotherhood secret documents hidden under Elbrasse's basement floor in a secret compartment.

Contained within those boxes was a plan and primary document which had been written in 1991 entitled: "An Explanatory Memorandum: On the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America" According to sources, the memorandum was written by Mohamed Akram who was said to be a member of the Board Of Directors of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America, and a senior HAMAS official. (Please note that these are terrorist groups) The document's contents were approved by the Muslim Brotherhood's Shura Council and was meant to be a document for internal review only and not for public consumption. eg: It was "Top Secret"

Pastor Burnett & URBAN CURE Stand For Israel


Thursday Feb. 26th, 2015 I was invited to speak at a press conference held at the National Press Club in Washington DC. The subject was Israel and the proposed boycott and walkout of the Congressional Black Congress. This event was sponsored by Star Parker and the Urbancure

It is amazing the stunts that politically liberal pundits do. In thinking that they help America, in reality they damage America and her cause of freedom. Many of our Black leaders have forgotten that many Jewish Rabbis and other religious leaders fought along side Black folk in the Civil Rights era for freedom and equality for Black people in America. For the Congressional Black Caucus to call for a boycott, not only displays ignorance to the real issues (and believe me it has NOTHING to do with a Presidential invitation or non-invitation) it is also display the rank arrogance of individuals who have lost their spiritual grounding and moral footing. 

I and the Dunamis Word, and all ministries attached to it, gladly stand with Israel, the Israeli people and against the methods that treats allies like enemies, and against exclusive talks with Iran, who is lead by murderous dictates that have consistently threatened to destroy not only Israel, but America also. We are against a President who wants Israel to roll back boarders to pre-1960 indefensible lines. 

With friends like the current administration, who needs enemies?!

I appear at about 29:30 into the video.

Justice Roy Moore on "Organic Law"

In this video it seems that CNN's Chris Cumo takes an offense to the application of law as defined by Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore over the issue of Alabama's right to reject same sex marriage.

The Declaration Of Independence says:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."
Key Wording:

The word "Unalienable means "incapable of being alienated, that is, sold and transferred." Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, page 1523:

This is often confused with the word "inalienable" or "inalienable rights". The word "Inalienable"  or "inalienable rights" would mean "rights which are not capable of being surrendered or transferred without the consent of the one possessing such rights." Morrison v. State, Mo. App., 252 S.W.2d 97, 101.

Islam, Submission With No Peace Pt.10

Saif al-Kasaesbeh surrounded by Jordanian Military Officials
In my article "Islam, Submission With No Peace Pt. 9...ISIS" I undertook a small examination of the Islamic cult ISIS and the terrible impact that it has on world, and especially those living in Islamic countries. 

Of course, since our initial examination, we have seen all kinds of continued atrocities from this group. Not only do ISIS cult members rape, pillage and kill in the name of "Allah", they also kill fellow Sunni and Sheite Muslims and have no respect for family and or values except their own. They appear to be led by a sect proclaimed Caliphate leader  Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. 

According to Islamic tradition, a "Caliph" is said to be a successor of Muhammad who is also appointed by the Mulsim Community. This, by itself, is a huge problem among Muslims. It appears that the "Muslim Community" has not chosen and or ordained this man as their leader. Only a certain group (ISIS) have made this man their leader.

Is Same Sex Attraction (SSA) Compatible With Salvation?

The good news is that more and more people are realizing that a homosexual lifestyle, like any immoral lifestyle, is incompatible with faith. The bad news is that rather than call homosexual attraction what it is, men, who disavow that homosexuality as either good or right, would like to simply suppress their feelings, and call what they are experiencing, Same Sex Attraction (SSA) rather than homosexuality. 

On Jan. 11th, 2015 TLC aired a show called, "My Husband's Not Gay" against the raging complaints of gay advocacy groups and others interested in normalizing the perversion of homosexuality and the homosexual lifestyle.

GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said this of TLC's desire to present the show and the messages contained within the show:
Sarah Kate Ellis
"Downright irresponsible"..."No one can change who they love, and, more importantly, no one should have to,"..."By investing in this dangerous programming, TLC is putting countless young LGBT people in harm’s way.”
An online petition, aimed at forcing TLC to drop and not air the show, was started by so called "Christian" and gay advocate, Josh Sanders, who said that the show was damaging because it:
"promotes the false and dangerous idea that gay people can and should choose to be straight in order to be part of their faith communities." 
In addition to being outraged at what TLC wanted to do, gay Sanders claims to have started the online petition:
"because these men (gays) deserve compassion and acceptance. Instead TLC is presenting their lives as entertainment and sending the dangerous message that being gay is something that can and ought to be changed. or that you should reject your sexual orientation by marrying someone of the opposite sex"

Doing For Truth What Others Do For A Lie

Recently, Dr. Ben Carson came under criticism for for making an contrasting analogy of the zeal of the terrorist group ISIS to that of the zeal of Patriots who fought for their freedom. Dr. Carson said this:
Dr Ben Carson
"They [ISIS] got the wrong philosophy, but they're willing to die for what they believe, while we are busily giving away every belief and every value for the sake of political correctness...We have to change that."
Immediately, with headlines such as "Carson likens Islamic State to American Patriots" (HERE) the media began to spin the commentary claiming that Carson was in some way denigrating patriotism and American values, and somehow paralleling the fight for freedom to the blight and deadly misdeeds of terrorists and terrorism.

Our View

The media, primarily the Associated Press, which appears to have created the headline, should be ashamed of themselves. Anyone informed about Dr. Carson's political position and the terror threat of ISIS can readily understand that Dr. Carson was correct in his assertion...that we, that live in freedom seeking peace, truth and righteousness, are only challenged by our laziness and reluctance to engage the culture. Many of us who know the truth, have caved and cowered to a culture of super sensitivity, political correctness, and social conformity.

Is Satire Freedom?

"What I'm about to say is maybe a little pompous, but I'd rather die standing up than live on my knees." 
~ Stéphane Charbonnier aka: "Charb"
(deceased Lead Editor, Charlie Hebdo Magazine)

Among many things, one of the more disturbing events that has recently taken place is the murder of 12 journalists associated with the Charlie Hebdo magazine of Paris France and the subsequent murder and killing of an additional 18 or so people as a result. I first want to say that my heart and the heart of the representatives of the Dunamis Word and many of its readers goes out in support and prayer of all the families who have lost their loved ones during this time. 

To the point, the Hebdo organization was made famous by its continual mocking and criticism of almost all things religious and all things that have to do with authority. A Hebdo staff member describes Hebdo's role as follows: 
"The aim is to laugh. ... We want to laugh at the extremists — every extremist. They can be Muslim, Jewish, Catholic. Everyone can be religious, but extremist thoughts and acts we cannot accept." ~ Laurent Léger, Charlie Hebdo staff member in 2012 to CNN News. 
Obviously the purpose is to not only criticize, but laugh, and make fun of many things, but primarily religion. A favorite among atheists and so called "freethinkers", concepts of the Hebdo magazine were delivered in effort to lower the veneration given to many religions, especially the veneration given to Christianity and Islam, and to incite thoughts against inconsistencies displayed by "extremists" within religious groups. Here is what a recent report about the Hebdo organization recounts:

Do Black Lives Really Matter?

Too Many Aborted.com
In my post, "Black Lives Matter...Most Of The Time", I promoted the movement Black Lives Matter, as it, through and by hundreds of protests all over the country, promotes harmony between the Black and urban communities and local police departments.

More To Black Life Than Police...

Although the goal of the Black Lives Matter movement is focused on the police, economics and community relations, there is another more ominous danger that threatens the survival of Black communities all over this country. That is the threat of abortion. To the tune of an estimated over 1,450 lives per day since 1973, the Black Community aborts and continues to abort its babies with the help of federally funded organizations such as Planned Parenthood, which has never broken ties with the startling racist statements and positions of its founder Margaret Sanger who said that Blacks and the poor were like "human weeds" that "never should have been born".

In fact, when I questioned why the Church Of God In Christ, who certainly proudly associated themselves with the Black Lives Matter movement by joining in Solidarity Sunday, (with myself in tow) would not be more vocal on the subject, my message was PROMPTLY removed from the COGIC Facebook site, but mysteriously it reappeared. If I might repeat what I said:
"Then what of our stance on abortion? Black lives are lost to the tune of some 1450 PER DAY. We endorsed a President who claims a woman has a right of choice over the life. Do BLACK lives really matter to us or is this the next buzzword?"
The Presiding Bishop of The Church Of God In Christ, Bishop Charles E. Blake, unlike many others, stood up at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, CO. in the Wells Fargo Theatre in 2008 and delivered a message questioning the endorsement of abortion, both by the Democratic Party platform and the then "presumed" Democratic National Convention candidate, Sen, Barack Obama. This is what the news recorded:
Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake 
"Bishop Charles E. Blake, presiding bishop of the Church of God in Christ, called on presumptive Democratic  nominee, Barack Obama to "follow through on his promise ... to reduce the number of abortions" while stopping just short of criticizing the Democratic Party for its support of the practice. 
"Surely we cannot be pleased with ... millions of terminated pregnancies," Blake said to applause from the nearly full Wells Fargo Theater. "Something within us must be calling for a better way. If we do not resist at this point, at what point will we resist?"
Democrats must know about the "moral and spiritual pain so many of us feel because of this disregard for the lives of the unborn," Blake said.
In a speech focusing on society's responsibility to its children, Blake first focused on the plight of the inner-city poor as a human rights responsibility before calling abortion a practice "that conflicts with our position and our responsibility ... to human rights itself."
Although Blake intimated he was frustrated with his party's support of abortion, he praised its positions for the helpless in other ways. "Others loudly proclaim their advocacy for the unborn," he said, receiving a standing ovation, "but they refuse to recognize their responsibility and the responsibility of our nation to those who have been born. "They are presently and historically silent, if not indifferent," he continued, "to the suffering of our inner cities."
I recorded this event on The Dunamis Word in this ARTICLE in 2008 from a now archived edition of the Rocky Mountain News the day after the Convention.

NOW back to our regularly scheduled program:

What Is The Problem?
I think Dr. Alveda King, the daughter of the great late Civil Rights leader, Dr. Martin L. King Jr. summed it up nicely. Let's see what she sad:
Dr. Alveda King
"The liberal media looks the other way on this"...“Pray that people will see right through their propaganda.”... “The media has another agenda; if they really thought that black lives matter they would be protesting abortion on demand.”..."[media] often stirs controversy to boost rating” and “support[s] abortion on demand.”...“This media category ignores the fact that the abortion industry targets minorities,”... 
“Even Planned Parenthood tweeted support for Ferguson using the Black Lives Matters hashtags, and yet they abort more black and Hispanic babies that any other abortion provider in America.”~ Dr. Alveda King Daughter of the late Dr. Martin L. King Jr. 
BLACK DEATH, HYPOCRISY and a PASSIVE ATTITUDE from society, the church and political community regarding the issue is the problem!

Since 2008, The Dunamis Word has taken on the issue of abortion to bring it front and center alarming the community of the danger and the Black community in particular. Countless babies continue to die through and by abortion. Countless women, mothers of those aborted, continue to die as well at the hands of so called "abortion clinics".  Two of the young ladies who have lost their lives recently due to this sort of "legalized crime" are  Chicago's Tonya Reaves, Cleveland's Lakisha Wilson. Both Black women. Died as a result of failed abortion procedures. Yet we find no demonstrations or protests by any movement, including the Black Lives Matter movement, against these atrocities. The fact is that 4 Black Lives were lost in these 2 events and not a person (other than those who oppose abortion in all forms) protested. The clinics were funded by and large through public funds, similar to the funding of police departments all over the country. Yet not ONE protest! Although Black woman constitute only 14% of the United States population, abortions by Black women account for nearly 30% of the nation's abortions. SOURCE and yet, we DO NOT PROTEST!

The Tale Of A CITY!
A closer look at the most current numbers for NYC abortions, (remember, NYC has generated the most widely held protests against the murder of unarmed Black men by police) display that 77.56% of all abortions are preformed on Either Black or Hispanic women, with Black women, who only make up 25.5% of NYC's population, leading the way with nearly 35,188 aborted that year. That is nearly 46.1% of all babies aborted in NYC at a rate of nearly 96 abortions per day! (Hispanics, 28.6% of NYC population, had 23,959 total lives lost to abortion at a rate of nearly 65 lives per day) The total number of abortions for NYC, 76,251, make it the nations leading city of aborted babies in the United States. Further, New York State has the highest number of abortions overall in the nation totaling 103,339 aborted babies! 

NYC "die-in" At Grand Central Station
There is no way that anyone can look at these numbers and not be convinced that this is a epidemic for the Black community of NYC and further something that the whole nation should be hotly concerned about. 

Studies also show that Black women are 5 times more likely to abort a child than White women. Condom use doesn't seem to curb the issue either as the and SAME JULY 2014 STUDY shows that over 51% of women who receive abortions used contraceptives in the same month that they became pregnant. In addition, as I have shown in this ARTICLE, the term "medically necessary" is subjective term with no specifically assigned set of values that does not address why and under what circumstances a fetus should be aborted. In addition, numbers show that abortions due to rape and incest only comprise .5% (that is POINT 5 PERCENT) of all abortions since 1973, and those numbers certainly don't seem to be a justification for the soaring numbers that we currently experience (although current numbers say that abortion overall is on a decline- Isn't that special?!?!?!)

Political Inaction, Misdirection and Non-Concern

Bishop Blake's requests and encouragements to now President Obama and the DNC seem to have fallen on deaf ears to say the least. Since his election President, President Obama has gone on record on to say this:
"...every woman should be able to make her own choices about her body and her health...."We reaffirm our steadfast commitment to protecting a woman’s access to safe, affordable health care and her constitutional right to privacy, including the right to reproductive freedom,"..."And we resolve to reduce the number of unintended pregnancies, support maternal and child health, and continue to build safe and healthy communities for all our children. Because this is a country where everyone deserves the same freedom and opportunities to fulfill their dreams."
Although this statement is filled with misdirection of the argument, obfuscation and word casting (almost political code) it is clear that the President's has allegiance to abortion no matter the cost. Noone questions whether a woman should have the right about "her body and her health". This argument is about a BABY'S BODY and that BABY'S right to his/her health. In addition "reproductive freedom" is not the issue, the right of life for the unborn is...babies can have dreams if they are allowed to live. Preventing unwanted pregnancies has NOTHING to do with saving the lives of babies who cannot speak for themselves. With all that said, the DNC went on to exclude God from their political party platform in the last election...go figure!!!!

What Has Our President Done Since His First Election?

Beliefnet has compiled President Obama's Pro-Life record HERE It is really astounding. He has done MUCH for homosexual acceptance marital normalization, but NOTHING to protect babies in vitro from murder. What a SHAME from the most powerful nation and leader on Earth! 

Conclusion

In short, if Black Lives Mattered as we all contend that they do, the lives of the unborn would matter as well. They are not only Black lives that should matter, but lives of the innocent whether Black White Hispanic or otherwise. 

I certainly support many aspects of the Black Lives Matter movement, and was all in on Solidarity Sunday and much more beyond, before and above it and whatever it meant. I feel that the slogans in favor of Black lives should really mean what it professes to mean. Not simply because of the police or failed community policing policies, but because countless lives, dreams, opportunities and hopes are being lost everyday to abortion and the abortion industry. 

Planned Parenthood continues to say that their primary mission is the prevention of unwanted pregnancies. They claim that if they don't exist, then the community and especially Black America would be in trouble because they would not have the necessary "medical help". While all of that is very arguable and at some point even comical, all I know is that while spending some of that $1 Billion in assets annually  they still have not changed their association with eugenics and they remain  part of the social movement that targets Black and poor minorities for its abortion services in nearly every major urban population in America. HERE'S the map to show how Planned Parenthood abortions centers are in nearly every major urban population in America.   

Blessed!

Unto Us A Son Is Given! Pt. 2

(Con't From Part 1 Of this Mini-series)

Almah: This word occurs 7 times in the OT scriptures. Although it is difficult to follow this word, we find that it never means anything that “bethulah” does not mean. In fact we find that the use of Almah is a more specific term than “bethulah” 

Almah appears to deal more with “childbearing age or ability” rather than physical condition of the person. Further, the LXX (Greek Old Testament) translates this word in Isaiah 7:14 as “Parthenos”, which is a further and more specific way in which to say “virgin” in the Greek. 

Parthenos is a Greek word that applies in nearly every instance and context, to the marriageable age, or qualification for marriage by maturity. The word applies to both male and females. 

For example we find that it applies to men in Revelation 14:4:
“These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. (Parthenoi) These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.”
1- The use of this word by Isaiah was more specific than Bethulah would have been. Almah appears to pin down the specified detail of the context. It suggests more strongly than bethulah the following things:
a- The woman or person was young
b- The woman or person was of marriageable age
c- The woman or person was always single and never married
d- The woman had not been “defiled” through previous or prior sexual activity

12-13-14 ~ JUSTICE For ALL


BLACK LIVES MATTER

The National Action Network along with other groups, came to Washington DC presenting their case in what is a national movement demanding that the entire justice system of the United States be revamped through a series of measures. Although the prayer began with a tribute to "Mother god" (a God whom I am not familiar with) and was also supported by gay advocacy groups such as the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), and ended with the rumored mother of a very popular minister's baby (Stacey Francis) and a "Please send Black Jesus" Jamal H Bryant...in all it was a great event and one worth listening to to gain a basis for the various viewpoints on the myriad of issues that have contributed to our current condition within our communities as it pertains to race relations.

Black Lives Matter...Most Of The Time


The recent excuses given to not indict or even take to trial individuals trusted to protect the public has created a firestorm of controversy in the United states. The Presiding Bishop of the Church Of God In Christ, Bishop Charles E. Blake, calls on the COGIC community along with all believers to send a strong message of solidarity Sunday Dec. 14th that Black Lives Matter! (I will save my continued and ongoing commendation to the church to prove the same in a future writing thus the "Most Of The Time" appellation in the title)

Presiding Bishop Blake Clarifies Carter Criticism...Somewhat...

Thanks to one of my readers I was directed towards a statement recently released by Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake   concerning his criticism of Dr. Earl Carter and his message at the 107th Annual Holy Convocation. I have done 5 articles already on this (way too much) that can be found HEREHEREHEREHERE and HERE

In this exciting NEW "episode" Bishop Blake clarifies what commentary contained within the nearly hour long message that Dr. carter presented, was, in his opinion, offensive and "inappropriate". from what can be assessed from the following statement, his dissent is boiled down to his tenor, tone and the use of a crude metaphorical statement.  The statement of Bishop Blake, released by a church Secretary on the West Angeles facebook site is as follows:

Dr. Earl Carter's Response To A Sad COGIC Apology

I received this from a source who confirmed the substance of Dr. Carter's response to the apology delivered by Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake of the Church of God in Christ.

Of no doubt, I agree with Dr. Carter's assessment of what can be drawn from the willingness to conform to the world within the highest ranks of this church. To the critic, YOU don't control me, neither do you control my pulpit or New Bethel COGIC or any ministries that I and we represent. This blog is a tool of free speech and one that I seek to use to better the Kingdom of God, preach the word, and teach the Saints. In the course of doing those things I gladly stand with those who do what the bible says to do and that is stand for truth. YOU haven't done a thing for me up until this point, continue to do just that...NOTHING...So that means don't demand that I remove anything that is TRUE and that is representative of the bible truth. The sins that you embrace causes you to look bad, not the light of truth that shines upon them. You don't like this ORDAINED, and appointed SUPERINTENDENT'S message, (and I am referring humbly to myself-LOL!) then read elsewhere! I am FREE and this is a FREE country...not communist China or Russia...and I mean no offense to all my Russian and Chinese readers. I appreciate your support and prayers and pray for you in return!

McCulloch, STUPIANI & HOW!

Rudy Stupiani on CNN New Day
Partner In The Firm McCulloch, Stupiani & How!
The former Mayor of New York, Rudolph William Louis Giuliani better known as Rudy Guiliani or Rudy "STUPIANI" on this blog until further notice, not only inserted his foot in his mouth and ate crow with his over the top, ignorant and racist rant against Michael Eric Dyson over the weekend, but continued to display his complete arrogance and utter ignorance through cunningly and meticulously devised fables aimed at appealing to the White "power right" base which were eager to hear him lie, and deceive in effort to get Black people "told". 

Ooh it was easy for STUPIANI to do this because he had an audience ready to swallow his racist, ranting and insults. I mean paint the picture, Blacks in America are out of control...Blacks can't obey the law...Blacks kill one another at epidemic rates...all of which demands that White man, along with tax dollars, have to rescue the world from Blacks right?

An Official COGIC Apology...Sad Day For The Church!

In addition to the statement that was released from the church regarding the 107th Annual Holy Convocation of the Church Of God In Christ, Presiding Bishop Blake decided to take things to an all new level or should I say and all new LOW for the "Grand Ole Church". This short excerpt from from the West Angeles Church service after the Convocation has more than burnt up the internet and especially facebook. The statement is resoundingly clear in uncovering what the Bishop was trying and endeavoring to do...Primarily: completely distance himself and the church both from anything that was said during Dr. Carter's message and anything that happened afterward by way of claimed deliverance by Andrew Caldwell, the person who's testimony is at the heart of the controversy.  

Bishop Blake read part of the initial statement and added some additional information for context. Here is the Bishop's statement: 

The Bishop's Assertions

Presiding Bishop Blake concluded that the speaker, Supt. Dr. Carter, had "used terms and spoke in a way that was offensive and inappropriate". To remind you, Dr. Carter called gay men "sissies", called the Bishops responsible for the proliferation of the gay agenda within the church by allowing them free reign, telling them that they were going to be held accountable for what they had allowed and called into judgement, and also at one point wished, that since gay men wanted to be women, that they would regularly "bleed from the butt" crudely referencing the monthly menstrual that a woman has as a sign of womanhood.

Marc Lamont Hill's COGIC Examination: "Look at This Fxxxed Up Church"

The FALLOUT from preaching HOLINESS and condemning the sin of homosexuality has reached epic proportions and criticisms. Not only has the testimony of a man named "Andrew" been on late night TV shows, mocked and ridiculed by society, because he declared his "freedom" from homosexuality, but but in an interview conducted by Dr. Marc Lamont Hill of Huffington Post Live, Dr. Hill says that the criticism, which should have been leveled, should have been directed towards the church (Church Of God In Christ) instead of being directed towards the young man, by saying that under the right circumstance an examination that people should have been saying, 

"Look at this Fxxxed up church, instead of look at this fxxxed up kid" ~ Marc Lamont Hill (48:16 mark of video)

Although COGIC has tried to lay low, I know of no one in COGIC that has criticized the "kid" However, that has not stopped COGIC from playing the "good guy" role by placing all the "good things" that it has done and continues to do in society on top of and over everything that it does. Yet the "educated" elite and in some cases the not so educated, elite, pious, and worldly, have arisen to examine the church, its ministry and its service and criticizing the church as being patriarchal, misogynistic, hateful, full of brainwashed individuals and out of touch in the 21st Century. 

For anyone wanting to see the complete interview, they can go HERE

Before I get started I would like to say that the testimony of the young man named Andrew, whether authentic or not, is not the real issue. People lie in church all the time and from the looks of it the panelists can relate either by personal experience or observation to that truth. So those who choose to condemn and theorize conspiracy or that Andrew was not real, are free to do so. For me, my examination, the issue was

The Nations Largest Pentecostal Holiness Church DISTANCES Itself From Deliverance From Homosexuality

Well, this is something that you don't see everyday Chauncey!

When Dr. Earl Carter preached at the 107th annual Holy Convocation, he did 2 things. First he called the homosexual, participating in the church, a "sissy" and said that they need to be delivered. This is not unusual. The late former presiding Bishop LH Ford called homosexuals "sissies" regularly. In fact a HOST of Sr. bishops can be heard referencing homosexuals in the same manner. Some even calling them what the bible calls them, effeminate, or Sodomites (both of which the liberal religious crowd try to reject)

Secondly, somebody came up and "claimed" to have gotten delivered as a result. A young man who declared that he was "delivered" and that he "loved women" admitted the error of his former homosexual lifestyle and not only he but many others came forth seeking to be free and seeking deliverance. Whether his claim was true or not, remains to be seen, but it seems that COGIC...Yes, the Grand Ole Church...is anything but glad to be associated with either happening.
