    The Black Church: A Modern Day Whore? - The LanceScurv Show

    in Christianity

    Point Blank: The Black Church is NOT what it used to be, nor is it where it's supposed to be.


    I don't think anyone will deny that fact.


    But what really intrigues me is that many church members are afraid to death to speak out on how they really feel about this issue.


    Going to most churches today is like going to your favorite restaurant only to find that your beloved dish has no flavor to it.


    In the Black Church today there is a tension that thrives just below the radar undetected to most that looms over any free expression of the spirit because it's not really about the Holy Ghost.


    We all know the in house Jezebels who work their witchery as well as the abundance of Man-whores there who operate under the hetero, homo, bi and down-low umbrella and all of the hierarchies of sexual deviance that thrives to the beat of that joyous sounding heavy bass Gospel music.


    Secret Societies? Yes, it's a given in the Black Church and one has to wonder with all of the secrecy and strange pagan ceremonies that go on with those groups that it's a wonder why anyone wouldn't ask them if Jesus would move in secrecy like they do.


    Heck, where would most truly transformed Christians be if the Lord never shared the good news and salvation with them but only to a chosen few who knew the handshake or the catchphrases to ascertain that they are in the inner circle.


    With so many hidden agendas and secret motivations infiltrating the modern day Black Church, one has to marvel at the fact that it's still hanging on with a pulse.


    The internal health of the original function is all but rotted out and replaced by a Sunday morning nightclub replacement chock full of all of the amenities that you could ever hope to find in a nightclub and beyond!


    The Black Church a Modern Day Whore?


    You can bet that pseudo saved sanctified seducing Jezebel's cleavage that it is!

    RTR: Tithing, The Black Church And The Black Community

    in Christianity

    Some estimates say that more than $12.5 billion a year is taken in by the black church each year, but how much of that money actually goes back into the community from where it came?   How many times have you seen a very nice church in a run down community?   The church collects tithes and offerings from it's members, but do the members have access to those same funds when they may need them?  Handing out school supplies, Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners are great, but what about the everyday needs of the people in the community in which the church resides?  We applaud those churches that have soup kitchens, food pantries and a benevolance fund and don't require folks to jump through hoops to receive financial assistance every once and a while, but many churches do no such thing.  How has tithing and giving money to the church effected the economic well being of the black community at large.  We are not talking about any individual church here, but the black church as a whole. Join RTR this and every Sunday at 10am est, as we talk about this and more.  You can also listen live by calling 661.449.9951

    Has the Black Church Worn Out Its Usefulness In Black America/Sports Racism

    in Politics

    On this episode of Field Afrikan Radio we will begin our show with a short segment on sports and racism. We will dive into the politics of sports as it relates to Black men, especially those who speak on behalf of Black America. We will follow that discussion with a building session on "The Black Church" in America. We will give our opinions on what the purpose of the Black church is today. Have we moved past the days when the Black church was something positive for Black people as a whole? Is the Black church a hindrance to Black liberation and building Black infrastructure in our so-called community? We will discuss those questions and many more. Join us in this discussion.

    Talk Back Tuesdays: The Black Church Part 2

    in Self Help

    It was so good we had to continue the conversation.

    Has the Black Church Failed US?

    We will continue our conversation on religion, spirituality, and faith. What is holding us back and how can we improve. We will discuss the manipulation and control that is used in the church, church code and how to decipher it, and the lack of focus on mental health, substance abuse, incarceration, and domestic violence in the community, the congregation, and the pulpit..


    What are our expectations, experiences, and situations that allow and employ us to go back over and over again. 
    How many people worship their pastors instead of GOD? Do our churches focus more on Wealth than Health and Soul Saving? Are we representing anything different than we see in the WORLD?

    We will also add discussions around the music/musicians, preacher/ reality tv stars, celebrity status, contribution, obligation, and/ or mandate to their parishioners, leadership team, and themselves. 

    We hope all of you will join us for this discussion of how the one pivotal force in our communities has now turned into a "joke" for many non believers and a "circus" for Christians and believers to gather and become monotonous.

    Single Women in the Black Church

    in Religion

     


     


                      The Single Woman in the Black Church


    Black females have long been considered the backbone of the  Black community and the cornerstone of their families and churches.  But what is the price Black women have paid to wear this crown of fool’s gold.


    An examination of any congregation of average Black church shows that single Black females fill the pews.  Results of a recent study “ African Americans and Religion” by the PEW Research Center’s Forum on Religion and Public Life found that “African Americans are markedly more religious on a variety measures than  the U. S.  population as a whole.”


    Almost 90% of  Black Americans express “absolutely certain belief in God” compared to just over 70% of the total U.S.  population,  Two other important statistics gleaned from this survey:  (1) 80% of Black Americans report that religion


    Is their lives as compared to 57% of the general U.S. population;  and 55% of Black Americans report that  they  “interpret scripture literally”  as compared to 32% of the general U.S. population.


    The PEW study also reported that “Men are significantly more likely than women to claim no religious affiliation,  Nearly one-in-five men say they have no formal religious affiliation, compared with roughly 13% of women.”


    Barbara Billingsley, Tara Billingsley, Erica George, Lydia Davis and Nycole Johnson discuss the topic.

    In Troubled Times, Does 'The Black Church' Still Matter? Preachers Leading.

    In Troubled Times, Does 'The Black Church' Still Matter?


    From Michel Martin Going There


    African-American clergy, academics and activists will hold a march on Washington this week, protesting the grand jury decisions in Ferguson, Mo. and New York City and call on the federal government to intervene in the prosecutions of police officers accused of unjustified use of force.


    I talked with Reverend Raphael Warnock and Eddie Glaude, Jr., two prominent African-American religious thinkers, about the role of black churches in the wake of major protests and demonstrations inspired by events in Ferguson and New York City. Warnock is the senior pastor at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Ga. — a pulpit once held by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. — and was in Washington to attend a conference hosted by the Black Church Center for Justice and Equality. Glaude is a professor of religion and chair of the Center for African American Studies at Princeton University. In 2010, he wrote an attention-grabbing essay called "The Black Church is Dead."


    A black parishioner shares his frustration with the absence of outrage from the pulpit at his majority-white place of worship.
