SORT BY Relevancy
Jesus refers to Scripture to make his case, as did the prophet Malachi before him (Mal. 2:10-16). Jesus quoted Genesis 1:17 to affirm that God made male and female with the implication that they would be joined together, and then he quoted Genesis 2:24 to remind everyone that the two would be one flesh. Genesis explained, "For this reason, a man leaves his father and his mother and cleaves to his wife, and the two of them become one flesh." Let look at the word "flesh" in the Old Testament passage does not just mean sexual union, but a union of their lives, their hopes, dreams, ambitions, plans, and sexual activity. They would become one in every sense; and to destroy that ruined more than a sexual union. Join us from the lesson series:"Why Do We Break Up Marriages And Enter Into A Second One?

There is an overarching stereotype about the absence of African men in family and community development. Some claim that African "Black" males have failed to protect their communities while some say African leaders are the ones failing to protect their societies. Is there some validity is this stereotype?
However, history portrays Africa as an organized society where males prided themselves in protecting their communities. This character trait dates as far back as pre-colonial days were men were more socio-politically visible than women and in some societies; even though they deferred some of the sociopolitical roles to women. In those societies, women were allowed to make decisions pertaining to women affairs, but in general, men played various roles as councilmen, elders, and as a matter of fact, as those responsible for guarding the living from the forces of evil.
How do character traits of today's men differ from those of our ancestors? What have we forgotten to remember? Is it good to remember and continue to observe the cultural legacy and behavioral commitments of the ancestors? Is it possible to combine the Afrocentric governance with those of our ancestors? From the look of things, corrupt governments, killings, etc., it appears black leaders have moved too far from the good traditional practices of their ancestors. If this is the case, then who protects black communities? Should those good traditional protective roles be abandoned? Will electoral processes work in black communities, particularly, in Africa? Where do we go from here?

I think there are a lot of misconceptions about celibacy and those who choose to be celibate. People chose to be celibate for many different reasons, but I am of course going to focus on the Bible and why it is such a gift. I think it's not until you take a serious vow to celibacy (whether for life or until marriage, whether you are a virgin or not) that you realize its beauty and you wonder why you previously saw it as a list of rules.
Celibacy is completely possible and can be highly enjoyable. HUH?!? Yes! Celibacy develops many good characteristics especially if you want to get married. Also, being a virgin does not mean one is celibate. Celibacy is a mindset, not merely a lack of engaging in sexual acitivities. Think of purity. You can be a virgin and be very impure in thoughts and in your heart and be a nonvirgin and have a very pure mind and heart. Celibacy is the same way and is closely linked to purity in this context.
Our radio show is more than just making self-proclamations of being "real" men, it's a state of mind and a way of life. First and foremost, we do not hate ladies. But we cant stand the 98% of women out there who feel entitled for free drinks and dinners. Although we are brutally honest and unyielding in our views on soft males, single mothers, and mad black women, we do not promote hating or completely disrespecting women. However, we DO hate and disrespect is the never-ending BS that too many men have to go through on a daily basis when dealing with most women and society. In other words, we have no problem expressing absolute contempt towards any irrational, disrespectful, and/or unrealistic behavior or attitude that is normally portrayed by women. We are feverishly working to put an end to all of that.
As we elevate and evolve the people and our surroundings should be elevating and evolving as well.
If you are continuously pulling your surroundings as you evolve, that’s a huge problem.

Over the past few years there have been more women asking men to marry them. Many people say this is dead wrong. Listen tonight to hear what Anthony & Aaron think about this topic.
We continue to ask the question, “What is it about the Black Man that is so threatening”? This second part series is to continue what was not discussed before.
In the events of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and other young men, it was related that they displayed actions to be threatening, and were gunned down as a result. But what about the Black man in everyday life? One who holds down his responsibility to his family, his career, and to his community – what threat does he garner to others in everyday life? How does society close the door on the stereotypes that seem to follow BLACK MEN?
On this week’s episode of Hot Topics Talk Radio, we will address these questions with Black men who will give us raw and untamed answers.
Please join us on Wednesday, August 27, 2014, at 9:00pm PDT/ 11:00pm CDT/ 12:00 Midnight EDT, for “MEN RAW: The Threat of the Black Man”.

Adria's grandfather, Sam Tannenbaum, was a song-plugger for Irving Berlin who changed his German surname to Tennor to sound more American. Her grandmother taught her all these songs as she grew up in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan. She studied acting and directing at New York University's Tisch School for the Arts. Her first role was as a 12-year-old boy talking about in Tompkins Square Park with an amnesiac in Hal Hartley's movie, Amateur (1994). With a few more film roles under her belt, Tennor moved to Los Angeles to work in television. There, she also performs her one-woman shows regularly around town, There's Not a Lot of Coat Check Work in LA, Electro Magnetic Stripper, and most recently Strip Search, inspired by her studies in pole dancing with Sheila Kelley at The S Factor Studio. She lives with her restaurateur husband, Claudio Blotta.
Adria's acting credits include You Don't Mess With the Zohan, The Artist and AMC' s Mad Men.
