    Lent, Legacy, and Legitmacy: The Black Religious Struggle

    in Christianity

    Blacks have spent centuries attempting to measure up to western Christianity's religious standards. Black preachers heralded high moral standards and strict religious observances that kept the idea of "heavenly rewards" ever before the eyes of their members. Has this desire for religious and holy legitmacy and legacy contributed to the black church's current condition of carnality and withdrawal. What role does black gospel music and preachers have in reaffirming the contemporary religious struggle in the black church? Join Pastor Neal for this and other topics of interest

    Dealing with Confirmation Bias and Cognitive Dissonance in Black History

    in Religion

    It's Black History Month and many will be honoring our ancestors who impacted American life. For most this creates a dissonance between being African American, black, and American. It also is a time when confirmation bias is at its most complex in the black church tradition. Confirmation bias is a term most people are not familiar with but operate in everyday. There are things that we believe that no one can dissuade us from believing. Many times we surround ourselves with others who share similar beliefs, ideals, or values. The church is in the business of confirmation bias, but are preachers using it to reinforce negative ideas and practices. How does confirmation bias and cognitive dissonance work in today's preaching and church experience? Join Pastor Neal for this and other great topics.

    Grace to Correct? Creflo Dollar handles a heckler during watch night service

    in Christianity

    The black preaching tradition is all about the call and response. Black preachers want to hear their audience talk back to them. With thousands in attendance at World Changers Church's watch night service, someone dared interrupt the sacred moment of Pastor Creflo Dollar's sermon. Pastor Dollar takes several minutes to handle a new year's heckler for ringing in the year with a shout while he was preaching. It was enough for him to express his displeasure. Was Pastor Dollar wrong for addressing the disruption or was the disruption wrong? What is meant by "grace to correct?" How far should preachers go to express their displeasure from the pulpit? Join Pastor Neal for this and other topics of interest

    Welcome to 2016: What is in store for the Church universal?

    in Christianity

    Welcome in 2016! For many believers, it was brought in with a watch night service filled with the same old recitations of new year blessings, prosperity, and the like, For many in the church, 2015 brought about an unveiling of some dark secrets, patterns, and behaviors that may have rolled over into the new year. There is an uncovering taking place and there is a remnant of believers who are speaking truth to power in and out of the church. Will 2016 bring more uncovering or a renouncing of the hidden things? Will more clergy be exposed or will more people become disciples of Christ? Join Pastor Neal for this and other topics on Zera Today
