Controversy| Gun Laws and Gun Control from Willie Moore Jr

I really like his take on the issue of gun laws and gun control. If you’ve paid any attention to the news lately, you’ll see that lawmakers are grabbing each other at the neck to crack down on laws. But my question is, should they really be cracking down on gun laws?…or should their focus be on the person behind the gun?

"Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus" by Jefferson Bethke

This is just about the dopest truth I’ve heard in a long time. Christianity is not a religion, in fact it is a lifestyle and a relationship with God. It’s more than a Sunday to Sunday routine mode of worship. Rather it is a life long dedication to worship and daily killing the flesh so that the truth of God may reign in your life. It’s an earth shattering reality that combats hail mary’s and symbolic rosary’s— It is truth…reality and so much more than what we think it is. It is illogical and stands against everything the flesh desires. It is life giving and spirit lifting.

Now I ask you, are you a Christian? or is this just a religion?


IN THE WORDS OF SATAN

This song by “the Arrows” speaks for itself…

thoughts?

Lecrae talks about the vision behind “Church Clothes” and Clears up any miscommunication.

As you all know, the mixtape “Church Clothes” by Lecrae (released earlier this year) featured secular musicans and producers. As per an interview Lecrae gave about the mixtape, some Christians were led to believe that Lecrae was making secular music and had turned his back on the “Christian” part of Chrstian Hip-Hop. 

Personally, I refused to believe this doctrine. No matter what I heard, all I knew was that Lecrae’s music and ministry has touched me in immeasurable ways. When I think about the night I deleted my entire ITunes library after rededicating my life to Christ, Lecrae’s album was one of the first I coped as a gateway to getting closer to Christ. Since then, I continue to support his ministry because it encouraged, inspired, and convicted me to be a stronger believer.

With his latest release of “Church Clothes”, I’ve used the mixtape as an evalgilism tool to my unbeliever friends. Encouraging them to listen to tracks like "Black Rose", "Cold World" and "Price of Life", my sisters have more value in themsleves because of the knowlege of Christ. 

The bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 1:10 I appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters,by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, to live in harmony with each other. Let there be no divisions in the church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and purpose. This means that we shouldn’t be so “Holy” in our walk that we bring down or condemn ministry that we don’t fully understand. 

Although, I think it’s notable to see Christians who truly care about the sanctity of Christian Hip-hop and Lecrae’s music, but we should also be wise and take discrepancies to Christ in prayer.

The fact of the matter is, some come to Christ through soft hymnals and a Spirit filled message on Sunday morning. But with the current generation, young people are not going church and their parents aren’t forcing them to either. What they know about Christianity is what they see in the lives of Christians. 

With Christian Hip-Hop music, the gospel is literally meeting our generation where they are. It is convicting, encouraging, and a direct pathway to the troubled lives of young people.

If you don’t get it, don’t hate it— encourage something new through your prayers.

Haven’t heard the mixtape yet? Check it out here.

Thoughts?

This puts it just right.

This puts it just right.

Olympic Hurdler Lori ”Lolo” Jones publicly says that she is a 29-year old virgin and takes the heat for it! What does it say when the public constantly sheds a negative light for remaining a virgin? Thoughts?

"If God ,gon’ take me as I am, I guess I already got on my church clothes!"


Lecrae—- He spoke the absolute truth. There are a lot of young people that refuse to stay in the church because the body of Christ continues to judge and condemn them. Jesus tells us in Matthew 11:28 “Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” The key word is ALL who are weary—meaning young, old, sinners, saints—everyone! All people will stand in front of God on the last day and a guarantee no one will be judged higher than anyone else even if you were a pastor or a minister. Not everyone who enters the church understands church “culture” or can worship God under certain doctrines. We should instead look at the word of God as the sole deciding factor of conduct but keep the COMPASSION that Christ had. Christ ministered to prostitutes, liars, and demonically possessed individuals. How dare we hinder potential Christians from entering the kingdom of Heaven based on condemnation? (Romans 8:1).

I pray that God opens our eyes WIDE to see the truth that our prime focus is HIM and spreading the love and freedom we have in Christ to the empty souls of this world.

May the Lord guide us and convict us in Jesus name.

CNN.com Comments on “National Day of Prayer”

I would really like to hear what you all think of some of the comments in response to the National day of Prayer on cnn.com. People are blatantly going against prayer— the end times are here, right now. What are we doing as Christians to evangelize and make HIM our main focus?

Can a man and a woman be just friends?

It feels like I’ve not posted anything in ages! Yikes! Well happy new month! I thank God for a new month, it’s like a clean slate all over again…lol

As per my last post, I’ve been busy prepping for finals and find no time for myself even on the weekends. But, above all I’ve been great—- and as part of my study break I wanted to chop it up with y’all about a question I’ve been battling with for a while now: Can a man and a woman be just friends?

As long as I can remember, all of my youth leaders were against male and female friendships. In fact around the age of eleven, I wasn’t allowed to go over and just “play” with boys my age anymore. For some reason talking to the opposite sex translated in any love interest or sexual innuendo…the trials of an African upbringing. Fast foward to a decade later, and the same beliefs about male and female interaction seem to resurface, but in different ways.For starters the generation we’re in seems to be very laid back about friendships and I find that (including myself) a lot of women claim certain guys as their best friends. Now, I can’t say that I have a lot of guy friends, but I can say the one best male friend I have, is nothing more than that of a friend, but to tell the older generation that the connection we have is simply friendship—- raises more than a few eyebrows. 

I guess the reason why they can’t belive it, is because men and women have always remained seperate. The only reason a man and a woman would/could be close was based on marriage or bloodlines. But as many other things, times have changed and as a believer I see my male friends as brothers—-as in part of the Body of Christ. I will say that I find it much easier to be friends with male Christians than unbelievers. My bro’s tend to build me up and check me when I’m weak, where as, the connections with the unbelievers seem aimless and taxing. I guess i’m still working through this debate—- this post is certainly not as definite as others, just my thoughts for now…still working through this through prayer.

What are your thoughts?

Nothing like a little controversial topic to get us listening…

The other day someone shoutout to @tripleentendre follow him! sent me this link to watch this message from the City Church. Initially I was taken aback by the title. I mean God bringing “sexy” back? It seemed like a bunch of blaspehmus mess to me. But, I decided to give it a shot and I have absolutley no regrets! The message is quite on point and filled with vital lessons for believers young and old. So get comfortable, sit back, relax and get ready to understand that Trey Songz did not invent sex, God did.
